Getting Ready For The Rapture – Part 5

Rev. James Allen

We had this little amount that would not fit into the Publisher in January. Brother Allen was talking about the Moses and Elijah prophets that will prophesy in the street s of Jerusalem for three and a half years; and he was saying that they will not be preachers; but prophets, so we pick up right where he was saying: I believe that they are right now,   on the scene somewhere: and sooner or later : I believe the Church of the living God will recognize them: because we will see the stand they are taking as they speak of spiritual things, because one is going to be from the tribe of Aaron. If it is Moses, that is where he is from, the tribe of Aaron. Could it be: that this man will show up before long? After all, Moses came out of a false religion. He did; he came from Egypt and went to Midan, which was really a son of Abraham, which was kin to Judaism, but it was not Judaism. Could it be: that the religious world has been somewhat of an influence? It could be. I have just looked at it in time past, that they would just show up somewhere, but that was not what happened with Moses: That is what happened with Elijah. I took that Elijah spirit that has been showing through the ages of time; through Elijah, Elisha, John the Baptist, and then in William Branham, how all at once it happened. Right down here at the end of Spring Street; in 1933, there was a baptism taking place. After it was either the fifteenth or seventeenth person that was baptized; then there was a light that showed’ came and, and a voice that came with it: which said: As John the Baptist forerun the first coming of Christ, so will William Branham bring forth a message that will forerun the second coming of Christ. That is what has happened. It has happened according to the Word of God, so there is one more time that the Elijah spirit will show up on earth. Of course the denominational world of religion thinks that it is going to be Elijah and Enoch: because they did not die. They have been in heaven for thousands of years, and they are going to have to come back down here and die. That is just their opinion, or belief, but that is not the way it is. It is a man anointed with the same anointing that the others were anointed with. We know this pertains to the same spirit that was on the others, and it will not be the same fleshly being as any of the others. Bro. Branham was not Elijah. John the Baptist was not Elijah, but that spirit that was upon them was the Elijah spirit. Of course it was the Spirit of God, but that is the way it worked. It was the working of what they were called of God to manifest to humanity in their specific time. We are so close to something happening: We need to be ever watchful. Ever since 2008, the things I preached since then have been criticized, thinking that I had an opportunity to change it, but I did not change, All of my critics think I had something going on in my head and heart before Bro. Jackson ever died, and that I was just waiting for that time. No! I was not waiting for that time, like some of them  were. I thought Brother Jackson would be here until the rapture. They were waiting for that time, because it had already been said that when Bro. Jackson died, which I never thought he ever would: they had their own ideas and plans. Don’t put words in my mouth. Don’t put thoughts in my head, because they were never there. I was not thinking about what I was going to do when he died. I did not think he was going to die: I thought we were too close to the rapture for anything like that to happen. When 2004 ½ came, some thought that was all wrong. That was not setting dates for anything: That was just showing when the two days: two thousand years would end. When the sixty nine weeks were over, Bro. Jackson said, that if the Jews had been looking for it: they would have known it was Him; when Christ was here. They did have a sister named Anna: She recognized Him. You had a man named Simeon, or Simon: He recognized Him. You had some shepherds that recognized Him. You had some wise men from the east that recognized Him. They had all of that: But the religious echelon of that day did not recognize Him. They knew more than what they said: Even Caiaphas, a year before He was crucified, prophesied of Him, that He was for the rise and fall of Israel. I went over that plainly. This thing; just never dies in some peoples’ minds. They do not know the tenses, they do not know the past tense’ nor do they know the present tense, and they certainly do not know the future tense. When Bro. Jackson made that chart, I knew, and know the chart is right. Because some believed it, they base everything on 2004 ½. Nothing happened; that some people thought would happen, but something did happen. It caused some people to turn the other way. They thought Brother Jackson was saying that the rapture would take place then: when he was just showing when the two days of Hosea chapter 6 would end, and then, after two days what would happen. When people judge someone or something they do not understand: they always make a mess. When I said awhile ago: Some people do not know their tenses, it was because it says, after, after two days. Some believe that part, but they do not believe we are in the third day. When you pass out of the second day; you have to be in the third day: whether you like it or not. I do thank and praise God for what He has revealed to me. God bless all who love and respect the Word of God.

GETTING READY FOR THE RAPTURE

    I want to go into our  message on our subject of the blood moons, and getting ready for the rapture. I want to point out some things that are ready to happen, I do not know when they are going to happen: Nobody is going to tie me down on that: to have me saying when the Lord is coming, or anything of that nature. The dream I had: that I mentioned, was before I ever heard anything about a blood moon. Some say we are basing it on something that is not really there: we will see. The coming of the Lord is drawing nigh. As I said awhile ago, I am not setting dates, but I am looking at the scripture: how it said it would be just prior to that time. We are living prior to that time. We know a few things that God has given us, I will not be presumptuous about it, but I want to follow the leading of the Lord in the things I say: so I will ask, that the things that are (not) announced to go out on the internet: that  none of you talk about it to people that have left us. What we see and believe is none of their business. If we have something we want to take up here, then that is for us, but I do realize that there is very little that goes on in Faith Assembly; that is not broadcast far and wide by those who do not agree with what we believe. That is what I have to say about that: so now I want to go back into the scripture. I went to Joel  2 this morning: it is not the same as chapter 3, because there is a difference in time. We are living in the time of chapter 2, and I have never said it was the rapture: Never! You cannot take any message that has ever been preached and say that I was making this the rapture.  I am sure though, that I am making it after the tribulation is over. The Bible teaches us that we would live in an evil day. Some things I have heard of late; make me angry; because some people are pushing their own will off on saints of God. I do not like that! What am I going to do about it? I certainly do not like it; when they go to pushing young people in these schools. What I am going to do, I am going to pray, and I hope you will too! Pray that the Lord will either remedy the condition, or get rid of some in whatever way He sees to do it. I will have more to say about that toward the end of it, because the reading I am going to have is the will of man, trying to push upon the will of people that are trying to do right. They may not even be in this message, but they are trying to stand for something, which our government has already let down. They have no desire to do right. These governmental leaders, if you want to know when they are lying, just watch them to see if their lips are moving. That is hard, but it is the truth. We live in an evil day and hour of time. The Bible says that;  before He comes back that it would be that way. We are living in the time of Romans 1. It tells what needs to happen to them. There are situations that need to happen. I am not out here leading a march, or out here to harm people: just as the three Hebrew children were not out to harm anyone. They still had to go through something. God was with them though, and He delivered them. Daniel was thrown in the lion’s den; because of a conspiracy, but God repaid them; what they had planned for Daniel was what happened to them. Let us see if they were tame lions. God controls our situations. Do not ever give up on God: because He is still alive and ready to help us. He still knows what we are going through. In this late hour of time, it is going to be more prevalent. Our need is for Him and Him standing for us. Man is not always going to have his way over the saints of God; to make them look like fools: when the Bible says   they are going to shine. The Bride of Christ is going to shine before she leave here, and I believe the process is on already. The darker it gets, the light is more prevalent, more easily seen. Brothers and sisters, we have a light;  just as Daniel had, but it takes right living on our part. We are not just church attending people. Some don’t like it, but Paul said it and I will say it: We are saints of God; children of the most High God. I am not saying anything out of order. That is what it is, and that is where it lies. We are not out here to destroy the government, but we are not going to let them destroy us either. Paul and Silas were thrown in jail, and so was Peter. Do you think; when Paul and Silas were thrown in jail: that was just an earthquake alone that opened those prison bars? It was God’s earthquake; ordained for that purpose. I don’t know what I may have to go through with in the time ahead. Neither do I know what you may have to go through with before the end, but Jesus said: I will never leave you or forsake you. We do certainly praise the Lord for that! There are things going on in this country that they are not letting the public know about. There are a few people that sneaks around to find out. Let me ask you why, in the southern states out west, are they having governmental maneuvers? Why do they have box cars with shackles on them? They certainly have something in mind. There have been some expressions of what it is about. Why is our government turning over everything to the U.N.? The next thing they are talking about: is gun control, turn it over to the U.N.  The way things are going, there is going to be bloodshed in the streets of America. Not everyone is  going to lay down and turn over. I am not preaching violence. I am not going out and marching. A man down here in Kentucky; was flying one of these little drones over another man’s property, and the man got his shot gun out. Don’t come over my property. He had a twelve year old girl out there in the swimming pool. Finally that drone came over and hovered over his property. He shot it down. Not everybody is not going to lay down just for political correctness. You will see that when we read this article later. It just goes to show that we are in the time of the end. We have brothers and sisters that are going through trials. We have young people that have never faced what we are facing right now, in these school systems. What I am saying, is that I am going to be praying for you young people. The principal is not going to listen to you. I don’t care what kind of life style that teacher has, he, or she is not going to listen to you. Political correctness: is devil correctness. That is what it is!. Revelation 6, the sixth seal covers a short space of time; because we are still living under the fourth seal. The fourth seal will go right on up to the end. The sixth seal ends everything; as far as man’s government is concerned. God, when He gets ready to judge, He does not look at what man has plastered on his wall: doctor so and so, whatever he is supposed to be. No saints: God does not look at what that plaque declares him to be; it means nothing to Him. Brother Jackson used to say; Dr. Fosdick. Verse 12 “And I beheld (See? He is looking at these things as they happen, one, two, three, four, five, six. I beheld. This was not entertaining to him, but it was very real to him. It says in the other seals, (come and see.) when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.” That is this bursting up of comets. Somewhere out there tonight is either one big one, or many small ones that are going to fulfill this. They are there; ready for that time,  because God designated it. This will not happen until the end of the age. “And the heaven departed as a scroll (that is the same thing Peter said) when it is rolled together; (It is the atmospheric heaven. God is going to suck all the air out. This atmosphere is going to burn: Not everywhere, but where it is needed. God knows that. He does not need an atomic weapon. There would not be enough weapons to do that. The same Creator that created this thing; has it all in hand.) and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, (Look out, you that desire those big offices, you are not going to escape it.) and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; and said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb.” He is angry. Man has trampled His Word under their feet. When America was discovered; it was discovered on the bounds of what Israel was discovered. The men that first landed here on the east coast, when they landed here, they landed with one purpose, that this nation would be a place that they could worship God. It was not for any other known purpose. It was not to make money, because there was no money then. This nation was dug out of a wilderness, and because of that, God began to honor the nation. It began to raise up honorable men; holy men: men that had some dignity about them. They were not; like this bunch of politicians we see today. They have drained the nation and taken it down to a cesspool of the enemy. Now we are living in the midst of a serpent seed generation. “For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” (2nd chapter of Acts). There was a lot of discussion going on. The Holy Ghost had come. They did not know what it was; because they did not have it, Remember though, there was a promise left unto twelve apostles. Go wait at Jerusalem until ye be endued with power from on high. Young people, do whatever you have to; but get the Holy Ghost: That is your only escape in the time up ahead. Let us go to Verse 14, of Acts 2 “But Peter, standing up with the eleven, (He is standing up to their defense. That is what we are doing now, we are coming to the defense of the saints of God, because this world is wicked, and getting worse evert day.) lifted up his voice, (By this time there was a crowd gathered there, because there was s a wonderment; what is this; that is going on? Here there were a hundred and twenty people standing out here, all moved upon by this great thing: The power of God was upon them, All had walked from an upper room where they were fearful and to the sidewalk and streets they went, to proclaim something.) and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words.” He is saying, somebody better listen! I say tonight, somebody better take heed to what you are hearing in this hour! Don’t let the day pass without dedication to God. “For these are not drunken, as ye suppose, (It was just nine o’clock in the morning.) seeing it is but the third hour of the day. But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel.” He knew where he was: he knew what he was speaking of. “And it shall come to pass in the last days, (The last days started then. The first resurrection started with Jesus, and then the others, that is when the first resurrection started. It will end when every saint of God is taken from the ground. He said in Revelation 20, blessed are they who have part in the first resurrection, on such the second death hath no power. It shall come to pass in the last days, we have been living in the last days since two thousand years ago.) saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy.” What a privilege to have the life of God dwelling in us, which is eternal. That feeling that comes to you when you are in bed before you get up in the morning and you just feel like raising your hands to Him while you are still in bed, all because His presence is there. I would not give that up for anything. I thank Him for it. “And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke.  (That is war.) The sun shall be turned into darkness, (Just above Norway, people had rooms reserved to see this: That was where it was so prevalent. They drove for miles, they came from other countries just to be there and see this. Six and seven years ago, they got tickets to be there.) and the moon into blood, (Here, here, (chart), here and here. Right in between here is another darkness, but not like this one. The sun turns into darkness here the 13th of September. God’s calendar is right. He never misses a beat.) before (That was not what Matthew 24 said. That was not what Revelation 6 said. It did not say before. We are living in the before.) that great and notable day of the Lord come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” It is about over. The door is closing. One of these days it is going to be cut off. There will be no more salvation. Gentiles are not saved during the tribulation, only Jews. Because then you have the persecution of the foolish virgins that will hive their lives rather than accept the mark of the beast. I went to Joel 2  this morning, it is not the same as chapter 3, because there is a difference in time. We are living in the time of chapter 2, which I have never said it was the rapture. Never. You cannot take any message that has ever been preached and say that I was making this the rapture. But I am sure I am making it after the tribulation is over. The Bible teaches us that we would live in an evil day.  Some things I have heard of late makes me angry, because people are pushing their will, pushing their own will on saints of God. I don’t like that. What am I going to do about it? Especially when they go to pushing young people in these schools. What I am going to do, I am going to pray, that the Lord will either remedy or get of somebody one way or another. I will have more to say about that toward the end of it, because the reading I am going to have is the will of man, trying to push upon the will of people that are trying to do right  They may not even be in this message, but they are trying to stand for something, which our government has already let down. They have no desire to do right. These governmental leaders, if you want to know when they are lying, watch them move their lips. That is hard, but it is the truth. We live in an evil day.

The Bride of Christ is going to shine before she leave here, and I believe the process is on already. The darker it gets, the more prevalent the light is more easily seen. Brothers and sisters, we have a right; just as Daniel had, but it takes right living on our part to manifest it. We are not just church going people. Some do not like it, but Paul said it, and I will say it: We are saints of God, children of the most High God. I am not saying anything out of order. That is what it is; that is where it lies. We are not out here to destroy the government, but we are not going to let them destroy us either. Paul and Silas was thrown into jail, and so was Peter. Do you think that when Paul and Silas was thrown in jail; that it was just an ordinary earthquake? It was God’s earthquake. I do not know what I may have to go through with; standing for this truth. I don’t know what you may have to go through with either, before the end. One thing is sure though: Jesus said, I will never leave you or forsake you, So we can praise the Lord for that assurance. There are things going on in this country that they are not letting the public know about. There just happens to be a few people that sneak around to find out things.

He had a twelve year old girl out there in the swimming pool. Finally that drone came over and hovered over his property. He shot it down. Not everyone is  going to lay down and be quiet; just for political correctness. You will see that when we read this article a little later. It just goes to show; we are in the time of the end. We have brothers and sisters that are going through trials. We have young people that have never faced what we are facing right now; today, in these school systems.

I am also saying to all of you tonight: Somebody had better take heed in this hour of time.

Right in between here is another darkness, but not like this one. The sun turns into darkness here the 13th of September. God’s calendar is right. He never misses a beat.) before (That was not what Matthew 24 said. That was not what Revelation 6 said. It did not say before. We are living in the before.) that great and notable day of the Lord come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Saints, It is about over! The door is closing. One of these days it is going to be cut off. There will be no more salvation. Gentiles are not saved during the tribulation, only Jews. Because, then you have the persecution of the foolish virgins that will give their life rather than accept the mark of the beast, and also the Jews that will give their lives. That 144,000 Jews, in  the first part of the week will receive their salvation. We are getting ready for that time. Now you preachers that are  saying: Bro. Allen is saying that the rapture is going to take place here, that is a lie. No. It cannot, because Israel has to have her revival; that I read to you earlier. They have to have their revival, but before they have their revival, according to the 36th chapter of Ezekiel, they have to get their land back. The land and their revival is all intermingled. They tore down some houses the other day, in Judaea. What did they do? They went right back to build them again. Now they are going to build even more. Pray for that Jewish nation. Right here, the 23rd, the pope is coming to the United States, and he is going to meet with the president; at the White House. That is the day of atonement, the 23rd. Then Yom Kippur, here we are going from the 13th of September, right on through this, the Sukkot, and you are going into the 50 years, since 1967. This will last a year. So I am going on feelings now. In a short time after this, Israel is going to get their land back. I cannot  say it is on this date, I cannot say that, but I will say that it could be, because where they are standing right now is according to scripture, though all the nations of the earth. Netanyahu said if it means standing alone, we will stand alone. We will not allow certain things to happen. I don’t know why the 23rd was given to me. Out of all the numbers that was given to me, that is the only one I remember. That and who spoke to me. Then after this happened, I go back to sleep and dream again. I dreamed I started out in a big field, I began to walk. Here I see people, one here, one here on each side, coming in, and coming in. We kept marching and marching. The people that were marching became more united, closer. As we get to the end of that field, we are one big bunch, just like honey bees. I saw things during this convention. Don’t stand on the outside and think you know the answer. You do not know the answer standing out there, because some of you will never accept anything until the seven thunders. But if that is your idea, the seven thunders will never happen for you. The seven thunders are for people that are united in the Word, that are willing to listen. After the pope meets with the president on the 23rd, he speaks to Congress on the 24th. Then he has a victory rally on the 25th; in Philadelphia. A unity. I am not going to be there. I am not going to unite with that thing. I have more things to say, but I want Bro. Kevin to read this for us now.

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak for me.
Niemoller’s haunting words as just as relevant to our times as we are now experiencing only the genesis of Christian persecution like this nation has never before witnessed. Here in parody could be the words of Niemoller in 2015.
First they came for the bakers and florists and you did not speak out because you were not a baker or a florist. Then they came for the county clerks and you did not speak out because you were not a county clerk. Then they came for the pastors and you did not speak out because you were not a pastor. Then they came for you and there was no one left to speak for you.
Chilly, but on our horizon, not tomorrow, but today. Last Monday July 6th my family and I had the privilege of standing with Casey County clerk, Casey Davis as he stood for religious liberty in a town called Liberty, of all names. That morning on the court house lawn, Casey was not just defending his own religious liberty, but yours and mine as well. Why you may wonder, would we get up so early, drag two small children out of bed, drive so far, miss a day’s wages, all for a complete stranger. Friends, I am a pastor’s wife. In case you did not notice, my husband happened to be next on the list in the above little parody, before there is nobody left to speak.
 A passage of scripture, found in 1st Corinthians 14:8, that explains the predicament of Christians today. It states, for if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle. While the lackadaisical warm church have been occupied splitting insignificant doctrinal hairs, and busy compromising with sin in the name of political correctness, and more mammon in the plate on Sunday morning, our trumpet has grown shaky, our troops are divided, asleep or indifferent. We have sold our children to government schools to be indoctrinated in humanism and every perversion that accompanies it. Their warm bodies may still be perched on the pews come Sunday morning, but their hearts are cold toward the true gospel of Jesus Christ. After all they reason, what does any of it really matter, if I am just a blob that evolved from nothing. In the meantime, hearing our shaky uncertain trumpet, Satan rallies his unified army with a very loud certain trumpet, and boldly and emblazonly moves in for the kill. Casey Davis has refused to issue marriage licenses to the same sex couples the Bible refers to as Sodomites, on the grounds of doing so would cause him to violate his own religious belief. His plea to Governor Beshear on July 9th fell on deaf ears. Our governor refused to protect the rights of Kentucky’s clerks as Governor Abbot  of Texas recently and heroically did. Mr. Davis was told to either do his job, resign, or be removed. His Christian faith, though not true of other religions, was to be left at home. This may be acceptable to Sunday Christians, but it is not acceptable to those of us who have the law of God written on the tables of our hearts and it most definitely is not acceptable to God. Casey’s trumpet has given a loud and clear sound. How is your trumpet? Shaky, or certain? Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet and show my people their transgressions, Isaiah 58:1. That is the place I am from, Casey County, Liberty Kentucky. I have to admire a stand like that. You have a governor that is supposed to be the son of a preacher, who is supposed to be a Christian himself. I don’t doubt it, I know he is not. We have in our schools right now, what I know it to be a fact; that a certain teacher came into the class in a certain school not far from here. She had a ring in her lip, tattoos on her arms and legs. She proclaimed the first day of school that she was gay. It bothered a young sister so bad that she came home crying. She told her mother. The mother talked to the principal, and they wanted to change classes for her. They cannot do that. I will not express to you who this is, but I am angry. What I can say is, if the principal will not remove her, we need to pray that him and the teacher both will be removed, or whatever it takes. I am sick of this kind of sin among this idiotic bunch of people. Our young people: our children are going through things that we did not have to. The Bible says to be strong in the Lord and the power of His might. I am going to pray about this. The way I am going to pray, is that God would remove this stigma, whatever it takes. If you don’t feel some anger about things like this, then get on your knees until you do. Young people came up here when they were small, to be picked up, to be hugged, to say a few kind words to them. Now; many of them are grown and some of them are in the camp of the devil: while trying to get an education. That is all they want, an education: They do not want to cause trouble. I had my brother to read this: this man was a German that began to speak, the buck kept passing on down and on down, to where there was nobody left to speak. Parents! Listen to your children! Children: talk to your parents. Let them know what you are going through. I know there are young people that are being criticized for the way they dress. If you don’t go to school wearing a short dress, others make fun of you. Some of them wear them so short;  that when they sit down there is nothing covered, that should be covered, or shorts and a tank top. That is the dress code any for many more. I am going to pray about the situation our young people are facing.  Parents, please do not be lax in your own lives. Don’t give in to everything you are faced with. We are not getting out here and marching. Who marched for the Hebrew children? Who marched for Daniel. Daniel and God were enough. God and any amount of His true children are more than enough. The three Hebrew children and God: was enough in that situation. When we decide, that we are enough: Then that is enough. As I said awhile ago, I am angry: I cannot help but be. Yes saints, I am angry, and I am not going to get over this very quickly; but neither am I going to let that anger cause me to sin. Neither am I going to go home and forget that something like this is going on. Prayer is something that some have given their life for, and think of  the Jews that will give their lives still yet: as well as those that already have. That 144,000 Jewish men will receive their salvation at the first part of the seventieth week of Daniel’s seventy weeks prophecy. We are getting ready for that time. Now you preachers that are trying to say Bro. Allen is saying that the rapture is going to take place here: That is a lie. We know that Israel has to have her revival that I read to you about  earlier. They have to have their revival, but before they have their revival, according to the 36th chapter of Ezekiel, they have to get their land back first. The land and their revival is all intermingled. They tore down some houses the other day; in Judaea: What did they do? They went right back there to build them again. Now they are going to build even more. Saints: Pray for that Jewish nation. All of that is important to us as well. Right here, the 23rd, the pope is coming to the United States, he is going to meet with the president at the white house. That is the day of atonement, the 23rd. Then Yom Kippur, and here we are; going from the 13th of September, right on through this: the Sukkot, and you are going into the (50 years, since 1967.) This will last a year. So I am going on feelings now. In a short time after this, Israel is going to get their land back. I cannot say it is on this date, I cannot say that, but I will say that it could be. Where they are standing right now is according to scripture: Though all the nations of the earth, and Netanyahu said: if it means standing alone, we will stand alone. We will not allow certain things to happen. I don’t know why the 23rd was given to me. Out of all the numbers that were given to me, that is the only one I remember: That, and who spoke to me. Then after this happened, I go back to sleep and dream again. I dreamed I started out in a big field. I began to walk; Here I see people, one here, and one here on each side, coming in, and coming in. We kept marching and marching. The people that were marching became more united, closer. As we get to the end of that field, we are one big bunch, just like honey bees. I saw things during this convention, and I will say now: Don’t stand on the outside and think you know the answer. You do not know the answer; standing out there, because some of you will never accept anything until the seven thunders come on the scene, but if that is your idea and way: The seven thunders will never happen for you. The seven thunders are for people that are united in the Word of God, and are willing to listen with a spiritual ear. After the pope meets with the president on the 23rd, he speaks to Congress on the 24th. Then he had a (victory rally) on the 25th in Philadelphia: It was a unity. I am not going to be there. I am not going to unite with that thing. I will have more to say later.

GETTING READY FOR THE RAPTURE

This thing of homosexuality: those people are so proud. They are so proud of what they are. God is not proud of them. When you read about it; it is a Sodomite condition, but they  flower it up and make it look decent, but there is nothing decent about it. They want to make it look good, but we know there is nothing good about it. They try to make it look honorable, but there is nothing honorable about it. God will never approve that lifestyle. We are living in that time where the Bible says, as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the coming of the Son of man. In the book of Luke, it says; and as it was in the days of Lot; so shall it be in the days of the Son of man. Paul did not mince words on it in Romans 1, where he told  just exactly what it was, and what it deserved. God is going to get the last word in all of this; when it is all over. He is the One that burned Sodom and Gomorrah to a crisp: because of that perverted condition back then. He does not change His mind about perversion ever. I want to talk about this other thing I have on my mind. We have a map over here, that will let you see where this fault line affects all the way down from Seattle to San Francisco. They say that on the average of every two hundred and forty years, there is a major earthquake in that area. It has been a little over three hundred years now. 1700 was when the last major one hit. They were talking about it, and said that it would be a 9.2. They said the difference between 9 and 9.2 was twenty times greater. They are not predicting that it will be: They are saying it will be! There are seven million people that live beyond the fault line on this side. Seven million people: That is enough to wipe out our biggest city’s; Chicago or New York. People do not listen. They are going to live as they please in those areas, no matter what is said about it, because the Bible says;  in the last days earthquakes will be numerous. I looked on a scale of earthquakes just in California alone, I looked into it, and there had been one hundred and fifty in less than twenty four hours. That is California alone, they are not sizeable, but it is something that registers on the Richter scale from 3.0 down to .1. In the 1970’s there were four thousand and something worldwide, per year. Last year there were one hundred and eighteen thousand earthquakes. You can see the increase in that short space of time. The Bible says they would be numerous. Numerous is talking about right at the end. All the indications are, that we are right at the end. I know there have been things said against what I have gone into about the blood moons, the Shemitah and so on, but I had the dream: That is the reason I did that. The dream about all the figures, and only one; was left with me. It turned out to be a Bible number. As far as that is concerned, it is the day of atonement, the 23rd on the Jewish calendar. I told this a long time before you ever heard of a Shemitah, not knowing what it meant, but all these numbers and times, which I believe has something to do with it. I am not saying that it is going to happen in September, I have not said that, but I believe we may be within a year. What I am talking about now; is getting ready, because we do not have a lot of time to get ourselves ready for the coming of the Lord. I could be wrong, within a year, but the thing about it was, I was sitting in my chair last night, when something came over me. A dread came over me, that we are so close, this came to my heart.  It did not make me feel sad, but it meant me feel uneasy; because there are going to be so many people, even friends and loved ones, even family members, that are not going to know it. They are not going to realize what we have been talking about all along, is really going to happen. There has to be an end, and I believe it is very close. What I believe; is that within the next year or a few months, Israel is going to get her land back, because all indications are pointing that way. The negotiations that just came through Kerry: the chief negotiator, with another man, I don’t remember his name, but they asked them; Congress and Senate asked them if they had read the documents on that, and they have not. They don’t even know what they signed. The U.N., and of course Obama, knew it would take sixty days to get it through the Senate, which I believe will pass because you have to have a two thirds majority. At one time, you only had to have a third, but now it is two thirds. There has to be sixty seven votes to overturn what has been agreed to. To me, it should be at least fifty percent, instead of making it sixty seven percent.  Brothers and sisters: I know this is not a salvational message, but I believe in studying the time we are living in, to know where we stand in time. Do I believe the Lord is coming back within the next year? No, because Israel has to get her land back: Then there are other events that take place before the rapture. Somebody said they could build the temple in three months. That is crazy. It will not take long though; because of all the equipment they have now. It will not take  seven years; like Solomon did. They are going to build the temple, and the two prophets are going to come on the scene, and also the man of sin. You might think you know who the man of sin is. But No, you do not know exactly. It sure is pointing to the one that is in there now; the pope. He is coming here the 22nd of September. All this is happening during our meetings. Then the day after our meetings on the 28th, that is the last blood moon. I don’t know if that will show up here, but I know it is supposed to show up over Israel. I know there is going to be a lot said; concerning what I have said this morning, but I do not care. I do not concern myself with what the outside world thinks of my messages, the outside world churches. They have their ideas, that is alright, let them go ahead. I want to go to Jeremiah 49th chapter, starting with verse 34. “The word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet against Elam in the beginning of the reign of Zedekiah; king of Judah, saying.” Some may say, Where is Elam? We have a middle east map of David’s kingdom up here. I will show you where that is. Here is the Persian Gulf. Elam is right in here, in that area right there, which is Iran. “Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Behold, I will break the bow of Elam, the chief of their might.” He will break the bow. In other words, He is going to do away with the power of Persia, or Iran. He is going to take the bow out of their hand, that is what He is saying. He is talking about war. “And upon Elam will I bring the four winds from the four quarters of heaven, and will scatter them toward all those winds; and there shall be no nation whither the outcasts of Elam shall not come.” In other words, He is going to send them to the four winds. Iran has a lot of trouble on the inside. There are a lot of people that have been promised so much. Islam has promised them so much, and it has not come about. They claim people now are having visions of Jesus Christ, and there are one to three million of them that have turned to the Lord in the last little while. I remember a man telling about being there, and that he had a vision.  What he was doing, he was praying and not getting an answer. Finally after so long a time and all the misery he was in, he turned to the Lord Jesus and asked him, if you are real, let me know it. A vision came to him of the Lord. He began to shout it out and tell everybody he came in contact with. They took off after him. He was running and preaching as he was running, and here were Muslims after him. He escaped them. So Muslimism is not paying off. The reason it is so popular is because you have so many young people in the world that are willing to join ISIS in order to kill, because they have seen so many videos of killing, that life does not mean anything to them. I am saying this morning: Young people, make sure of what you look at on the Internet. It is very dangerous to get into some of the stuff on there, because so much of it is Satanic. I can only stand here and warn you: I cannot go to your house and watch you. You; of this congregation should all know what you are watching and you know right from wrong, because it has been preached here all these years. “For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies, and before them that seek their life: and I will bring evil upon them, even my fierce anger, saith the Lord; and I will send the sword after them, till I have consumed them.” This is the part of the world which Cain went to, in the land of Nod. It was actually Iran. That evil spirit has carried over there all this time. When they got rid of the Shah of Iran, they thought they were doing something great, but they just welcomed in Khomeini and them that had no mercy on anyone. “And I will set my throne in Elam, and will destroy from thence the king and the princes, saith the Lord. But it shall come to pass in the latter days, that I will bring again the captivity of Elam, saith the Lord.” In other words, these people that did not agree and all, God is going to bring them back; the captivity of them back into the land; that it will not be a destroyed land. I heard somebody say the other day; that God did not deal in land. Some supposed to be prophetic preacher; said that God did not care for land. Well, he did not read Ezekiel 36, before he said that: because Ezekiel 36, the first sixteen verses of it; tells you that God is going to deal in the land at that time. I want to go from here to 2nd Timothy, 2nd chapter. Verses 1 thru 12. “Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also. Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth, entangleth himself with the affairs of this life, that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” What is he talking about there?  This really goes deeper than just reading a scripture. There is a channel on television that goes back into WW2, and it is a war channel. They were showing these soldiers getting ready to take this peak. It was three thousand feet straight up. The Germans felt they were safe. But they trained those soldiers for months before they ever sent them to that peak. They call them the black soldiers. I don’t know why; because they were not black. It had to be because of the mission they had. They trained in snow, they trained on mountains. They put them in the worst weather they could find. This is the first special forces the United States ever had. They pushed them to the point; they forgot who their mother and father, sisters and brothers were. I worked with a man at the Ford plant. His name was Butch Johnson. He was talking about being in Vietnam. He said, you are fighting all the time with machine guns or whatever you had. He said, you fight back to back with a buddy. He said you have to have a buddy so that nobody can slip behind you. You are fighting back to back and depending on one another. He said, I forgot what my mother looked like, I forgot what my sister looked like, in the time that I was there. It was so rough you did not always know who the enemy was. You even forget what home is like. He even forgot what a good cooked meal tasted like, because you are there for weeks and months with only your group of men. These men that trained, Germany thought they could never get up this peak; because it was three thousand feet straight up. Those men trained and considered every logic, and trained themselves in it, in order to be that soldier that would go all the way, but many of them did not make it; because they fell out on the way and could not take the strain of it all. When they did go in there, it showed them climbing the mountain. They took ropes and dug in so far, and it was all rope climbing, all the way to the top. Finally they got to the top, and when the sentry got to the top, they looked and did not see anyone guarding that side; because the German soldiers thought nobody could ever get up there that way. They were guarding the sides where people could get up.  Those men did get to the top, after a long hard battle with circumstances. The Germans were defeated there on that mountain. It took a week or longer, but they overtook that mountain. What I am saying is, to be as Paul is talking about here, he has seen the Roman  army. He knows what it is to be a soldier, because he has been observant and watched. When he is teaching this, he is talking to Timothy. In order to be a good soldier, just like Jesus said, talking about taking hold of the plow, anybody that takes hold of the plow and looks back, you are going to do damage when you look back while plowing. Therefore Jesus said that anybody that looks back is not worthy. If in our hearts we get doubts, we get to where we have gotten soft, He is talking about hardness and steadfastness. This may not be very interesting, but it interested me when I was looking at it. The 3rd verse, “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.” It takes our attitude, our thinking, our desires, I am not trying to set us out on a ledge somewhere and then say there is only one way or jump. I am not doing that. I am not trying to make it look like something dreadful. What I am talking about is complete dedication. This is not just a belief system we are working on: This is an dedication, because; when I look at other scriptures there, which I have been thinking about, I see; without spot or wrinkle. These spots are easy to come by. I know that when I eat, I have to look and make sure I have not spilled something on me. “No man that warreth, entangleth himself with the affairs of this life.” This Republican thing that went on the other night, I listened to some of it, and noticed that they always look for some way to knock somebody out, a word, a sentence or something, we are going to get rid of him. No man that warreth, entangleth himself with the affairs of this life. I could not run for political things. When I worked at Ford, some of them wanted me to be a union steward. I was not interested in that. That was not for me, I was not going to get entangled in stuff like that. Then others wanted me to be a part of their Bible study at lunch time. Do you know what I did? I found a suitable place and went to sleep during that time. There are a lot of people that may talk interesting. I had that happen all the time while working at Ford. They never did carry through on anything to any benefit: They just wanted to talk. That is just like Jesus said: some of it is going to fall on stony ground. It has no root. I even had a few that came to church here with me at times years ago. Two or three times was all they came. Who wants to come in here when they feel like you are taking everything away from them, which you are not, but it seemed that way to them. The cares of this world just do not interest me. I don’t care about any of it. I don’t care to watch a ball game now and then, but that kind of thing is not going to rule over me. When it is over, somebody has lost. Grieving about it will not change anything. Before it is over with, that other one is going to lose somewhere. “That he may please Him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” I joined the Air Force in 1955. I came up here to Louisville: I did not know where I was; just a green country boy. The first thing that happened: two of the fellows that were with us: There were four of us that came up here for that, and they got to drinking, and took my blanket. I should have known better, but I did not, so I told the sergeant, which was a marine sergeant. He just about ate me up. He got on me like you would not believe. He raked me up and down the coals because I had lost a blanket. We come to find out, these two fellows sneaked it back in the next day. Well I took the test; but did not get in any service.  It was just not for me. I got into something; thinking that everybody was going to be happy with me. I was working at Fisher Bodies. I had a man who I thought was my friend. I had to talk to everybody about the Lord back then; that is just the way I was at that time. I remember walking down the steps from the rest room one day: He caught me on those steps and started laughing and telling everybody about me. You learn from this kind of experiences. Did that discourage me? No, because I had something in my heart that had been given to me:  not by Fisher Bodies. When you take on Jesus Christ, you have taken on something; that no matter what you face: you have help to overcome.  It says to take Him on. In other words, when you do; you have filled yourself with Him. Paul said, I die daily; nevertheless I live, but yet not I, it is Christ in me. That is an every day thing, whether we are here, on a job, or wherever: you stick out like a sore thumb. You are not trying to, you are not trying to make yourself obstinate, but we become that because our kingdom is not of this world. I am looking this morning: at rulers, but I am looking at people today that are soldiers before you become rulers. We have to start someplace. I know, that  during WW2, they had a buck private: That was below a private. You did not go in the army as a general. There has to be some promotions. God does work on our failures. He does whatever we need Him to do. He will work on our failures, if we are willing to admit that we have failed. “And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.” We have regulations to go by. The regulations are in the Word of God. It is not me telling you what to do, I cannot do that. I can tell you what the Word of God says, but then you have to fulfill it: just like I have to fulfill what applies to me. We are getting ready to get out of here and we do not have a lot of time to get it done. Just living any old haphazard way; is not going to get us where we need to be. I can stand here and tell you what God has done for me, but it is in the days ahead; that will prove it, or did prove it. I have to prove it to myself before I can prove it to you.
