Revelation Chapter 8 (February 12, 2014) ~ Rebroadcast Picking up at Revelation 8:2
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 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 I are ready to get back on our father’s word revelation chapter eight eight always means new beginnings we’re going to break out the trumpets in this chapter you want to remember the seals which we have covered except for the seventh or to put in your forehead in other words it is a teaching field whereby you must absorb what it is our Father intends to do for he will always for tell you everything if you really love him and serve him he’s not trying to catch you off guard to trick you or test you beyond what you can handle but here we come down to the Trump’s what does the trumpet do it executes the command in other words the seals are not in chronological order as far as events are concerned these seals are in chronological order as to the importance of the fact you should know this is why that the first seal is the coming of the false Christ that’s for most you need to know that that the false Christ comes before the true Christ does or you’re going to be deceived so that’s what the seals are for is that teaching and remember that parenthetical chapter number seven which we just completed holds the end times until all of God’s elect are sealed in their forehead that is to say in their minds and now we come to that seventh seal and then we will begin to execute the command in the order in which it happens so pay attention real good information so with that word of wisdom from our Father chapter eight the great book of Revelation the uncovering and remember always that John was taken to the Lord’s Day first day of the millennium so that you can see these things transpire verse one and when he had opened the Seventh Seal There was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour now this is real simple what happens in the sixth seal Satan and his group were cast out of heaven and and there’s peace on earth I’m sorry there’s world earth but there’s peace in heaven it means they’re observing what’s happening and when we get to the trumpets as we’re about to there’s seven of them the first four have to do with with various events but the last three or whoa trumpets that’s where you want to be very careful when those loaves begin to fall because they happen right here on earth so verse two and I saw the seven angels which stood before God and to them were given seven trumpets these are orders that will be given at the moment of execution verse three and another angel came and stood at the altar having a golden censer and there was given unto Him much incense that he should offer it with what with the prayers of All Saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne and this this goes all the way back to another chapter where God said all your prayers are in in the vial in their in their Bible they’re here before me and this is just like in chapter 6 verse 9 I believe it was where those under the altar that had shed their blood on earth wanting to know how long father before you avenge our blood this is this is the prayers and this is the answer to those prayers as that incense goes up the prayers before all my God verse 4 to continue and the smoke of the incense those prayers which came with the prayers of the Saints ascended up before God out of the Angels hand don’t ever think that God doesn’t hear your prayers the Trump execute the answering thereof verse 5 and the angel took the censer and filled it with fire of the altar and cast it into the earth and there were voices and thunderings and lightnings and an earthquake and certainly that’s the preparation for the first truck when you begin to see those things and you see them come to pass we’ve always had earthquakes but the ring of fire is exactly that it’s own fire where you get a double hammer and triple hammer and major earthquakes kind of enough to get your attention in these end times verse 6 and the seven angels which had the seven trumpets a null sounded and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood and they were cast upon the earth and the third part of the trees was burnt up and all the green grass was burnt up and this happens on the earth and it is naturally when we speak of a third it was a third of God’s children that Satan deceived in the first Earth age and it usually has what to do with that part that can be deceived and most usually are verse 8 and the second angel sounded and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea and a third part of the sea became blood Marren you always have that third or what has happened here a third of the people are spiritually dead that’s where the blood comes from spiritually speaking and well how do you know it’s talking about people well I’m going to read something to you you’re not going to have it but I’m going to read from chapter 17 verse 15 of this same book great revelation I want you to know what that sea and the water is Revelation chapter 17 verse 15 and this is a translation or an interpretation by Almighty God himself so don’t you hanky with it this is there for men to interpret God is interpreting it for you verse 15 and he said unto me the waters which thou sawest where the whore sitteth that’s to say the deceived ones are people’s and multitudes and nations and tongues so the very water itself is people being the whole sea of a mass of them so that’s what’s being that’s what’s being deceived here that’s why the blood is pouring forth spiritually speaking to deceive a third of God right out of it I mean just coming out of though they’ll be more deceived than that but coming right out the gate of Satan harvest a third of them and and they are just spiritually dead well how could you say brother they many of them are Christians then you got that right but the minute a Christian starts worshipping Satan instead of Christ he’s no longer a Christian but they didn’t know what God’s warned them he sent them this letter that they should have known if they had paid any attention even to the first very first seal in a Christ comes first here he comes he’s going to deceive as many as he can let’s go with the next verse verse 9 and a third part of the creatures which were in the sea and had life died and walked both down what is this sea again it’s the people in the nations a third of them spiritually dead and the third part of the ships were destroyed that Commerce even the world trade going bad going to be done away with verse 10 and the third angel sounded and there fell a great star from heaven burning as it were a lamp and it fell upon the third part of the rivers and upon the Fountains of waters and naturally we know what that is if you’ve studied God’s Word do you know what it is what did Christ teach I mean himself in Luke chapter 10 you’re not going to have it but make a note Luke chapter 10 verse 18 the teachings of Jesus Christ after the seventy return and he said unto them I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven Lucifer means bright and Morning Star behold I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy how much is that all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you now I don’t know do you believe the Lord Jesus Christ or do you like to fear fear itself and tremble in your boots over nonsense that men can put forth God knows how to take care of his own right in Satan’s face right in his camp not withstanding we’re not not just because of that in this rejoice not that the spirits are subject unto you that’s to say even the evil ones but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven and you don’t have to worry about it written we’re written in the book of life with God’s almighty blessings his election those that cannot be deceived why because they have the seals in their forehead that’s knowledge and wisdom and understanding and you know that that one is going to fall and and understand we’re not yet to the sixth Trump but what I want you to be aware of is his influence even at the third truck on earth it’s already here the influence I said not him but the influence and you better be prepared for it you don’t want to be caught asleep continue returning then to the eighth chapter of the book of Revelation we’ll pick it up with the eleventh verse and the name of the star is called wormwood that’s bitterness and the third part of the waters became wormwood they were bitter also and many men died of the waters because they were made bitter spiritually the other have you you’ve been across spiritually bitter people the influence of the unfortunately the wrong spirit not the Holy Spirit can work on you knowledge deceive you mislead you and men men like to prattle and and you get teachers that like to teach and you know and unfortunately you can see how important these chapters are in forewarning and for arming the people and you have people running around telling you you preachers you don’t have to understand the book of Revelation you’re going to be gone there’s just one problem the word doesn’t say that it’s the man that’s saying it and he’s lying and that’s that is really a sad sad state of affairs that’s why I third of them are plunking that Satan’s bed before he ever has to say I do and and then they’ll still claim to be Christians only they’re anti Christians followers of Antichrist you want to remember well how does he come in he comes in prosperously and peacefully he does not come in with war threats bombings dangers just the opposite peace what’s the opposite of wars and rumors of wars Christ told you it’s not yet as long as you hear of wars and rumors of wars but peace world peace and he comes in prosperously and peacefully and many Christians are ready to pop right into his pan I mean ready for the taking especially when his message is I’m going to fly you out of here and the sad part is he’s not going to fly you out he’s going to fly you down down into the lake of fire it is so important that you grow familiar with the letter your heavenly Father has sent you this book of the unveiling this book that makes knowing the apocalypse this book that lets you know step by step all seven steps exactly how it’s going down and when you take the six seals you have one seven set of the seven seals rather you have seven steps the trumps are another seven steps the vials are yet another seven steps all from a different profile where you cannot go wrong if you’ll pay attention so here we have this one called wormwood and he deceives many people is it not strange that we had a great event that happened after the fig tree was set out in Jerusalem it happened in Russia that konoba konoba in the Russian tongue is wormwood bitterness boy it was a bitter thing that happened there that’s not going to happen to the world though how precious our Father is that happened in the third angel that the evilness of the world was already beginning to work the de facto does not happen until the fifth then that’s a time of teaching but the sixth is when the action really starts right here on earth that’s why you want to pay very close attention to the wool Trumps see these are not wool wool Crump’s we’re reading here it’s just building up to it oh don’t try to don’t get frightened when you’re the infantry is here because the Calvary is coming and you don’t have a thing to fear what we just read in in Luke 10 you have nothing to fear God is on the throne God is in control verse 12 and the fourth angel sounded and a third part of the Sun was smitten and a third part of the moon and a third part of the stars so as the third part of them was darkened and the day shone not for a third part of it in the night likewise the appearance of the false God see this is the same pre lude as it would say to the coming of Christ the moon will not give her light so go forth but it has to do with the brightness of his coming but this darkness is caused by the smoke coming from the abyss the pit the shadow of the locust as the locust army goes into action that’s spiritually speaking but you want to be prepared for it again I want to remind you we’re on the first day of the millennium at this writing John was taken there and he could see these things transpiring which are happening in your lifetime the generation of the fig tree so it really gives you a mirror to what tomorrow brings and in the chronological order of events in the Trump’s because they execute the command verse 13 and I’ll be helping I heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven saying with a loud voice woe woe woe to the inhabitants of the earth by reason of the other other voices of the trumpet of the three angels which are yet to sound now the more ancient manuscripts do not have the word angel here they have the word eagle and God likes to use analogies because if you’ve ever been out in a lonesome Valley in the desert or anywhere where it’s perfectly still and you hear the scream and the cry of an eagle it’s awesome to give you the urgency of these final three woes just in case you don’t understand whoa is not good news for those that don’t know any better whoa does not Rose do not effect those that do know better that have promptly efficiently and wisely have placed all seven seals in their forehead that’s to say in your mind whereby you are forewarned of those events as transpire you can’t be deceived so even when the Eagle cries the three warnings of the three vote woes you’ve got nothing to worry about because even when we read the tenth chapter and Jesus had just instructed who seventy disciples that return to him and said Jesus even the evil spirits had to mind us what he’s talking about even the evil must obey God’s only leg when even at the time when that false one is here that star falls from heaven you got nothing to worry about do not fear but rather revere Almighty God and thank him for giving you the knowledge and the wisdom to knowing to understand the very Trump’s and seal it all fits into place and it’s all laid out by our Heavenly Father where nobody can go wrong now we come to a very important Trump and the fifth seal dominated it for you where the children cried out it kind of tells you what the remainders mode of saints my elect must do chapter 9 and verse 1 and the fifth angel sounded and I saw a star fall from heaven unto on to the earth and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit we’re going to turn him loose I mean Satan is going to be released on earth that’s why it’s a wolf Trump that’s nothing for us to have to worry about though don’t have to worry about when out a thing about it verse 2 and he opened the bottomless pit the abyss and there arose a smoke out of the pit that’s what dark in the sky as the smoke of a great furnace and the Sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit this is going to cause many people to think the true Christ is returned if they’re uneducated if they’re uninformed and if they have not the seals of God in their forehead verse 3 and there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth and unto them was given power as the Scorpions of the earth have power now you have to keep up with our Father this lets you know number one they are not literally locust he’s using locust as an analogy whereby you have the four stages of the locust to understand Satan’s little tricks the tricks of his people his army the Scorpion is brought into it for a very special reason and when when our Father uses an analogy you want to take time to study that to no one to understand it well it said right there that as scorpions of the earth well how does the Scorpion here power there you’re getting to the point the scorpion has a long tail with the Stinger on it but there’s and he has two little pinchers up by his mouth and there’s a strange thing about a scorpion didn’t have a stomach scorpion has no stomach to digest food that’s why God brought him the scorpion into this place so well what does the Scorpion do then the Scorpion takes his tail and Adil’s his victim poisons it and then grabs it with his little pinchers of its mouth and a little plane but he regurgitates his digestive juices into the skin of the victim and the victim becomes his stomach in other words it turns your backbone to mush and that’s the way Satan operates he literally poisons the mind and turns the backbone to mush where he automatically has a third following him coming out the gate it is so simple if you naturally then the Scorpion / takes of the juices that his stomach digests and he’s quite healthy and the victim is a goner that’s what you don’t want to become well why would God go to the trouble to explain all that because it’s needful it’s needful – you know for you to know that as a Christian you don’t want Satan to be able to turn you to mush you want to have power over him and you know how good our Father is he lets you know in the next verse verse 4 listen carefully and it was commanded then God Himself commanded the Fallen One the Scorpions the locust commanded them that they should not hurt I repeat not hurt the grass of the earth well that blows it out of the water that they were real locusts because that’s what they live on neither any green thing neither any tree that’s why look Bertha’s that’s what local strip these are not locusts they’re enemies of Almighty God but only those men which have not want to repeat this again only the men that have not the seal of God in their foreheads those that are still stupid and ignorant concerning God’s Word that did not take the time to absorb the seven seals in their forehead God commends the enemy you you leave them alone you cannot touch them he’s about that he will soon tell them you can’t even kill the others you can sting them you can turn their back bones to mush but you can’t kill them but you can’t even touch God’s elect that have the seal one well they’re too smart they know better they have power over the enemy and they’re able to exercise that power and that authority do you know do you know where this is spoken of it’s at a prophecy we can go to the day of Pentecost because this is what the pen of Pentecost people were talking about the tongue of Pentecost the Holy Spirit speaking through them every language of the world it wasn’t unknown everybody knew it both sons and daughters that they were quoting the 25th verse of the great book of Joel my god is yah the 25th chapter I’m sorry the second chapter of the 25th verse I’m going to read it to you you’re not going to have it and I will restore to you the years that the locust had eaten and the cankerworm the caterpillar and the Palmer worm my great army which I’ve sent among you all four stages of that locust as they gnaw on this earth as they deceive governmentally politically and commercially bringing us into the position of that fifth trumpet 26 and you shall eat in plenty and be satisfied and praise the name of the Lord your God that hath done belt wonderfully wondrously with you and my people shall never be ashamed why you’ve got the seal of God in your forehead and you shall know that I am in the midst of Israel I’m there with you and that I am the Lord your God and none else and my people shall never be ashamed two times for emphasis 28 and it shall come to pass afterward not maybe afterward that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh and your sons and your daughters both shall prophesy your old men shall dream dreams your young men shall see visions well I didn’t know women weren’t supposed to prophesy they will at this time when the Holy Spirit speaks through them at the appearance of the locust army God’s hand maidens 29 and also upon the servants and upon the hand maids in those days while I pour out my spirit what day is that brother during the locust army we’re reading about it in the book of Revelation and I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth blood and fire and pillars of smoke that’s divine judgment just as the Trump announced 31 the Sun shall be turned into darkness and the moon into blood before the great and terrible day of the Lord come that is – what day is the Lord’s Day the Millennium where we’re studying in the book of Revelation you see this is the appearance of the second tribulation the return of the true Christ not the not the Florida 32 to complete and it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance as the LORD hath said and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call I don’t know has he called you have you had that call he gives it to you in the book of Revelation he gives it to you in the whole word calling you to not be deceived calling you to serve him calling you to be one that he can count on one that he could be assured of sons and daughters that’s what happened on Pentecost day when Peter would say this is that that was spoken of by Joel the Prophet that’s only then and then only will that Pentecost tongue be spoken it’s biblical be there believe the Bible or or quit for it is a wonderful beautiful time and no one can ever find anything written in Acts chapter 2 that the Pentecostal tongue is unknown it’s just the opposite the beauty of it is is cloven it goes out in every language of the world man can’t fake that and both sons and daughters shall speak when that Holy Spirit speaks through them and you know Jesus forewarned us of this in mark 13 that’s what he was talking about they’re going to deliver you up before the synagogue of Satan don’t premeditate what you’ll say beforehand but speak what I give you in that hour that hour of temptation because the gospel must go to the whole world so there we have it starting this fifth trumpet very important we’ll finish it in the next lecture you don’t want to miss it because it identified who

Alaska Hawaii all over Canada the spirit moves and you have a question you share it once you do that please never ask a question about a particular reverend denomination or organization we do not judge people God’s Word judges people because God is the judge and certainly spiritual discernment falls on the part of those that have eyes to see and ears to hear to know who you should fellowship with and who you should not but always sin as a helpmate to those that are interested in learning and knowing truth how blessed it is those of 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 you’re making a dress got a prayer request you don’t need the number you don’t need an address and you don’t want because God knows what you’re thinking right now he does he’s got time for you he created you for his pleasure Revelation chapter 4 the last verse remember and when you return that love it gives him great pleasure and that brings blessings but let him know you love him that’s what he wants from you Hosea I do not want your burnt animals I want your love grace mercy okay that’s our Father speaking let him know you love him it pays great dividends father around the globe we come West that you need guide direct father touch in Yeshua’s precious name thank you Father Amen okay and we got Jody from Illinois thank you for your comments did Jesus feed 5,000 men and with two fish and five loaves of bread or was it the word of the Lord no no he literally did it was a divine intervention but the as you would learn in Matthew chapter 16 the thing he wanted people to be most aware of is that when when they when he blessed those ingredients and had people by 50s sit in order Christ then gave the loaves to the disciples they did the feeling feeding that’s what disciples are to do today is to feed the Word of God but when they picked up the fragments this is in in Matthew 16 Jesus said I’m not talking to you about bringing bread I’m talking to you about picking up fragments when you have a large group together that are doctrines of men not my dog and so that’s what you want to be careful of when you have large gatherings because you’re always going to have some doctrine of men there that turns away from the real Word of God that was this morning from that Teresa from California could you please tell me what simplify means and also is it proper for a civilian to say that to a former Marine no such thing is a former Marine once a marine always a Marine and simplify means always faithful and it’s a wonderful thing for you to say it to them they’ll they will appreciate it and thank you for being with us you know the Trump’s by the events that transpired militia from Melissa from Georgia could you please explain the part in the Bible about women and their long hair is it a sin for us to cut our hair or wear it short absolutely not the main thing you want to know and understand about 1st Corinthians chapter 11 is what verse 10 says verse 10 says a woman should always be covered but it’s talking about using Christ for your covering not your hair that’s just an interpretation of man the the manuscripts mean a woman should keep Christ over her head because of the angels the fallen angels that’s what the war Trump’s are about they’re going to be thrown out of heaven the fallen angels are and they’re coming back and as Jesus taught in Matthew 24 Hey just before I get back at the second Advent it’s going to be just like it was in the days of Noah they’re going to be giving and taking in marriage again and and fallen angels and evil religious people like to seduce women into doing their you work nothing new about that even blowing themselves up and that isn’t that holy dusting that seems so peaceful and so reasonable of course it doesn’t because it’s idiocy but that’s that’s why it has nothing to do with your hair you keep Christ over your head because of the Fallen Angels again as I said Christ taught in Matthew 24 it’s going to be just like it was in the days of Noah the fallen angels were taking the daughters of Adam to wife and gibber were born unfortunately it’s going to happen again they’re going to when we get to Revelation chapter 12 you’ll find out Greg from Washington I own my own business and I’ve always been open 7 days a week I personally take the Sabbath off but my stores are open is this wrong not when you have to compete in this world the and the better the day the better the deed when it comes to to survival in Satan’s little part of the world but do if your employees they if they were altered them if they have some of them have to be off on Sunday but no there’s nothing wrong with with pulling the Ox out of the ditch when it need be done well what was an ox well that that was what you worked with your business is what you work with and you have to compete no problem Tammy from Georgia I’ve just started watching Univ been enjoying your teaching thank you you’re welcome question some people believe that not all Christians will go to heaven they go by the scriptures Luke well all Christians go to heaven if a person remains true to the true Christ they’re going to go to heaven but if a Christian is a Christian on in name only and never studies the Word of God in this generation these scriptures that for tell us all things are telling us a lot of people are going to be whoring around before it’s over with with a false god so a person can call themselves Christian but when Antichrist comes promising peace and love and flying you away you you start worshipping Satan you’re no longer a Christian I don’t care and and your salvation Christ saved you but you left it and turn to another so-called Savior only he’s taking you straight to hell so it’s very important that you cannot when you hinge your salvation on two or three little simple scriptures instead of all of God’s Word the truth the low the whole loaf then you got trouble because you’re going to be deceived and many might say well I thought Jesus was understanding well how can how can Jesus is he is very understanding that if you were in bed with Satan this is why he would say in mark 13 what are those that are with child and that give suck when I returned he wasn’t talking about a physical impregnation he was talking about wanting a virgin bride and if he’d returns and finds you nursing a child it means you were with Satan you were with that false Christ is what the subject matter is in the chapters that that is utilized by Christ he doesn’t want you he won’t have you if you worship the Antichrist instead of him and and you know nobody can blame him at the end of the millennium it could be a different story if they didn’t have a prayer of a chance because of false teaching and there’s a lot of that to go around margarita from Canada my question the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ when we are all changed into our spiritual bodies will the animals also be changed as well the dogs and cats and the other animals they all will be changed you are not going to leave your animals behind okay well how can you possibly document that it’s easy in the Word of God Isaiah chapter 11 declares that all the animals are there and there are no carnivores that that was a carnivore is no longer there in spiritual bodies well then then they are changed well of course they are the Bible teaches it we got some people running around now you can buy insurance and they’ll pick your pets up and take care of them when you leave at the rapture okay there’s just one thing that’s idiocy because they’re going with you Isaiah 11 documents that I don’t you know the internet change that some preacher comes along and messed somebody’s little nest of stupidity up but then sometimes people need to be saved from stupidity click and ins from Kentucky I’m 11 years old and I was wondering if you know where I could find the shortest verse in the Bible I sure do it’s st.
John chapter 11 verse 35 Saint John chapter 11 35 verse 35 Dorothy from Georgia where does it say in the Bible that one-third of God’s children fell in the first earth age Revelation chapter 12 and you know something a third of them fell in the first earth age and according to the second and third trunk the third of them are going to fall the he really even gets here because of deception false teaching in other words if you in as much as the word rapture is not in the Bible and people are teaching you to almost make a religion out of Flyway then you’re kind of deceived before you ever get to the gate you need to read God’s Word and listen to what God has to say that’s what salvation is all about okay so but anyway a third fell then and the third will fall real easy but there will be a much more because other than you know other than the elect it says and the very elect in the elect I’ll include the kings and queens of the ethnos all the world will hold after the false Christ they’re deceived minion from Michigan was Mary the mother of Jesus present during the first Earth Age was she considered highly favored during the Second Earth age to be Jesus’s mother of course she was all souls were with God in the first Earth Age all nothing was missing and and they rejoiced and were so happy it was so wonderful those are the words of God himself not-not-not words that and you can read of it in the book of Proverbs when wisdom speaks in the 6th through the 8th chapter wisdom speaks all the sons and daughters were there you can read of it again in job chapter 38 when God was speaking to job concerning the stars which is the children of God all with him before the first Earth Age they were so happy and then along comes Satan and the rebellion took place and you know something I guess our Father wants to know how long does it take people to learn because Satan’s going to fall to earth again and that will trump lets you know that’s what he’s this star that falls from heaven Lucifer bright morning star not the true morning star which is Christ and many people will be deceived that have not taken the time to love our Father enough to even care to read the letter he sent to you to forewarn you and tell you what it is he wants you to do to be one of his children is so very very important but they were all with them and it was a wonderful place thank you for asking Tricia from Pennsylvania do you think that God story do you think that God is starting to tell us a story of some kind with these earthquakes or warnings port-au-prince Haiti concepcion chile 8 8 twin new beginnings and concepcion what happens at a conception wait 9 months ok do you think the next one will be somewhere having to do with the Garden of Eden not necessarily the next one has already happened it was in Japan they had a six point six twins again and at the same time over in Indochina there was Indonesia rather there was a six point four at the exact same time that’s two and instantly on the same rim but we’re getting some messages and it is important they’re pretty good shakings with the outer plate slipping under the other place which is really they’re doing it big-time Christine from Wisconsin I want to ask if the term oh my god is using the Lord’s name in vain it bothers me when I hear a person say it all too often and I always pointed out to them asking them to use some other term is this a sin or not well it’s according to who uses it and how they meant it there’s if you truly are saying oh my Heavenly Father if you’re asking his attention on something it’s not a certainly not a sin but if somebody is using it as a byword who knows maybe that’s as close as they get to God maybe they truly in their heart mean they need God’s help in it so if I would feel before I jumped somebody’s case about it that I might be playing judge in other words I might be judging what their true meaning was reading their mind for them so I would be very careful about that very careful Christy from Arkansas I was on the phone talking to my aunt who lives in Kansas and she said that Jesus was coming back for his Saints she believes in the rapture and I told her that the pastor whom I listened to says there is no rapture I listened to the Shepherd’s chapel every morning God wakes me up and I believe you teach God’s Word is truth my question is I didn’t say to her that she was not right and that she should study God’s Word in more depth how should I have handled this situation I am a shy person you handled it probably as God would lead you you planted enough of a seed that’s good if it grows if it grows then you can water it if it doesn’t grow then you that is your relative you don’t want to have a never argue Bible or try to force your beliefs off on someone plant the seed and if God wants it to grow don’t worry it will grow and shy has nothing to do with it a shy person many times plant some of the best scenes I think you did great Dana from New Jersey my question is where was the Land of Nod in the Bible time and where is it today the Land of Nod is where Cain went and took his wife the the six-day creation scattered to the rest of the world after the Garden was closed and and I make it the Near East and so it is you can kind of tell by many times by the the inhabitants of Cain and those that would call their King kagan and their migrations it kind of gives you a pretty good idea you have to be real careful you do not paint there with a wide brush Paul from Alabama would you or Dennis please tell me how to look up in the Strong’s exhaustive concordance in the appendix the Hebrew and Greek meanings it’s real simple first you must determine the key word in your scripture I’ll use an example a child asked me today what is the shortest verse in the Bible I happen to know that the shortest verse in the Bible is two words it’s Jesus wept so the way you would do it I’m going to give you a lesson look up the word wept and go to a place I’ll save you some time go to the book of John because it’ll give you starting with genis genesis all the way through where that word wept is utilized and come down to the book of john and you will see jesus wept and then it will give you the the greek number for the word wept so you have a Hebrew dictionary in that concordance and you have a Greek dictionary basically Old Testament you will find in the Hebrew dictionary New Testament you will find in the Greek dictionary so you would simply go there and check out that word and that’s the way you use it that gives you the in-depth meaning of certain words in the original manuscripts fantastic tool Bruce from Pennsylvania I heard you say you have to earn your salvation where is this explain you probably have never heard me say you have to earn your salvation your salvation is free but you do have to earn your white linen that your garment is made out of that’s real easy to document Revelation chapter 14 verse 13 the only thing that can go with you from Earth is your works and then when we get to the nineteenth chapter of the great book of Revelation it will tell you that the white robe that you wear is woven from fine linen created by your righteous acts if you don’t have any righteous acts if you haven’t earned any righteous acts you may be saved but you’re going to be naked as a jaybird in heaven not a pretty sight okay but you do not earn salvation Christ paid the price that but intuitively I’m out of time hey I love you all because you enjoy studying our father’s work most of all God loves
