You cannot have the war scenes that you have in the book of Revelation without weapons of mass destruction.
They're here now never been here before. Not before the 1950s antichrist flying up everything. All of the media platforms they own. What what conservative group has the power to broadcast as these liberals do none. This is cross-reference radio with our pastor and teacher Rick Gaston. Rick is the pastor of Calvary Chapel Mechanicsville. Pastor Rick is currently teaching special messages here cross-reference radio. Please stay with us after today's message to hear more information about cross-reference radio specifically how you can get a free copy of this teaching today. Pastor Rick will conclude his study called revelations rumblings as he teaches through Revelation chapter 13 Yahweh said.
Indeed, the people are one and they all have one language. This is what they begin to do now, nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.
They pooled their resources, they swapped notes they made each other stronger and the ways of evil, rejecting God how will they identify the mark of the beast with its 666 very easy during those days. It will be no problem. Once they say no seal, no sale, no name, no necessities, no number, no deal, no Mark, no meals, get it or die.
But you see, that will be fast enough. It's like when the Nazis were trying to exterminate commit genocide against the Jewish people. It wasn't enough to just shoot them they had to come up with ways to accelerate the process and cooked them and even that wasn't fast enough for them.
That's how is going to be doing that great tribulation. I'll get to where the church will be in Christians will be other than the tribulation converts in a moment what we will be we Christians will be very easy to identify will be the hungry ones will be the hurting ones will be the ones and in that lack the essentials.
Somehow, the 144,000 Jewish preachers evangelist will be unharmed by these restrictions and they will function and I don't know how none of us know how long we won't be here present. Christians will be here to find out what no other kingdom in the history of humanity has seen rule as evil and as fast as this one again. Daniel chapter 7, where he says they are terrible and exceedingly strong. Now let's talk about more technology because you know those of you. I don't know how droid phones work and nothing anybody does okay sorry the iPhone pick it up.
Since is your mug, your face and it begins to work for you.
It reads your face, your face is the ID of the mark of the bees. Where's it going on the face of the four head and on then be able to pick up your phone and swipe your hand over a look at it and read the chip in your head and off you go.
Data will be in the cloud of darkness. There are chips available now some of them have ruffles, but others are implanted.
They're not the mark of the beast there just an indication everything is going that way you can get that chip and you will not be defiled. I wouldn't get it.
But if I did I get the chip on my shoulder because that's how I am. Revelation 1316 it causes both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive the mark on their right hand or therefore heads, and that no one may buy or sell now it is coupled with the willful worship of the beast. Why does the Bible make that indication is not. I don't have it here son came bring too much of it up to say this that will pay people with special needs who will be forced to get this are aware of all of this nonsense and they will get an exemption you go to little baby in a hospital and you insert the chip that babies not damned because that baby did not connect the chip with the worship the mercy of God, always active, always robust, always the baddest dude in town, so this that were living in this end of the age. The last of the last days, unlike ever before. Our generation can fulfill these prophecy will see them fulfilled. Revelation 11 then those from the peoples, tribes and tongues and nations will hear department will see their dead bodies 3 1/2 days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves of the two prophecy I mentioned earlier, everyone on earth, from every peoples, tribes and tongs. The nations will at one time. At the same time be able to see their dead bodies. We can do that in John's day you couldn't do that in Martin Luther's day you couldn't do that in Billy Graham's day.
Do it today will part of the grantee, you could live to be like on 90 in Soho, the global communications that Tower of Babel. Listen to what God says in Genesis 11 now the whole earth had one language and one speech and as I mentioned, we are back to this, so some of the things that go along with the fulfillment of of antichrist of the technology, the repeat will before I get even to the repatriation of Israel, which is a part of filling in the puzzle. Israel has their land there back in it that people have been flying in from all over the world and staying there.
They are committed to making them citizens, Armageddon cannot take place without Israel being in that land with ownership drones will color and a lot of the meaning to the activities taking place in the book of Revelation artificial intelligence that is robots that look like human beings act like humans almost indistinguishable from humans. In fact it doesn't even have to be a human.
You can make any kind of monster prosody out of something and give it life given bullets given the ability to destroy make it at the hair of the woman in the teeth of a lion vacant all of these things are now coming to life. In fact, antichrist is an attempt to this assassination on him and he survived without assassination prove that he's human, not a demonic spirit, not artificial intelligence, not a robot but that he is human.
God is laid it all out and they can't stop but for filling it because they are evil, weapons of mass destruction. You cannot have the war scenes that you have in the book of Revelation without weapons of mass destruction. They're here now, they've never been here before. Not before the 1950s antichrist. They're buying up everything. All of the media platforms they own.
What what conservative group has the power to broadcast as these liberals do none again feathering the nest for antichrist and his false prophet to just sashay right into power, they will assume all these things they will claim them as their own and everybody's going to be happy with it. Everybody in the world. So we have some reminders for ourselves in the midst of these things because the church will not be in the world. When this seven year period begins.
The assembled church will be rapture it out, leaving behind the apostate church. But then there will arise the hundred and 44,000 witnesses of our Lord. They will make tribulation converts those converts will be executed. There will be persecuted and then killed any chance that is given to antichrist and his people, and this plan for everyone's data that we have now many of you don't want to get certain pleasant feeling to be in track.
We situate just go ahead and get it. It doesn't matter, they know you are anyway you started to me moving daily would track where your spending. If you use your credit card at a gas station or convenience store allowed the course is just gone beyond that with your phone with a simple click. You've made your purchase and they know where you made it from true believers will not be here because we were rapture, but more true believers will will come through it. There will be Hindus and Muslims and other peoples giving their life to Christ. During this period of time. God is not finished preaching the gospel to people just because antichrist comes to power but still what restrains him that what's holding him back with second Thessalonians chapter 2 of their you read that it is the Holy Spirit that restrains the evil forces until he's good and ready to move back some to let him come to the forefront and give him this power we read about in chapter 13 of the standing and reading of the word.
This assassination attempt. As I mentioned there in verses three and four and then repeated later. I think 13 and 14 twice no less than in this one chapter, there is an insistence by God. Listen to me. God says there's nobody like this one is going to be wounded severely and miraculous in Zechariah called centuries. We before John miraculously he's going to survive and when he does, everybody's going to think he's the greatest thing ever pour themselves into this monster with the judgment is coming.
Revelation 14 nine then 1/3 angel followed them. Now the presence of all these angels in Revelation is God saying I got this that's what you keep reading about them. Then 1/3 angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, and that's another thing that making it loud and clear and we need to get it if anyone worships the beast and his image and receive his mark on his forehead or his hand.
He himself shall also drink the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of his indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. Did you catch that if anyone worships the beast and the image, and receives the mark.
That's what I was referencing earlier verse 11 of Revelation 14 and smooth than the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever. They have no rest day or night worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name. So God repeats it for emphasis that the second witness within the Revelation. Now all of this has got that do have something to do with us. Okay were not going to be here then. So why tell us now because they are current opportunities sharing Jesus Christ I've noticed for some time now from the Gospels is not convicting people. It's as though they've heard it so much. So often there are immune to it.
Yeah I know Jesus died for me. I know he rose again. Also, we have Easter is sort of the marginalized is reduced in its potency, God has created in his own word, a backup plan is sort of like you know when you you large tracts of land are being developed for housing but they they save certain other tracks and open it up until everything is sold off. Then they opened the second track of properties to be developed. God is now opening that second track is single maybe. Maybe the witnessing is not working anymore of the simple beauty of our faith. Maybe what they need to counteract all of this technology in mindnumbing, you know, videogames, and all his other stop. Maybe what will work now is prophecy full-blown in your face, prophecy, not like the end time, Peter Peterson, we have more sure word of prophecy.
We were there we have the fulfillment everybody knows it but we are now in an age we can say the same thing on a different level we can say we've got the prophecy we can take an unbeliever's illimitable does Vinnie.
Okay is it was happening here they going to control who can buy and sell and if you don't play there till you don't get the reward the life than the necessities of life.
But God called it already.
He said this was coming and you are now living your scene you are seeing God's word for filled.
Why would you reject this because if you see that these prophecies were filled than the doom prophecies apply to.
Don't you think for one minute that all these other properties. Weapons of mass destruction. Israel coming back in L artificial intelligence and all this other stuff, don't you think for one minute that is going to be fulfilled as you're watching it cannot deny it with the wrath of the Lamb is somehow not going to be filled.
They come together. These things are given to us views of the rumblings of the book of Revelation.
It is our platform is why we. Why else have this book if were not going to be here to live through the horrors of this great tribulation. Such as the world has ever known.
We want converts as believers we don't want just a good church.
We do want that many of you contribute to that but there is more. And there's more to just make and convert. You've got to have somewhere to put them to do something with them to strengthen them or they will be stunted and plucked up picked off. It's a lot of work going in to fighting this war against Satan because he has so much power and so the purpose of this message, in the light of the venial case is to say to us. Listen to the last days. Use this book preach from it. If they don't want to hear about Christ walking in Galilee. Maybe you will want to hear about him walking over those who blaspheme him in these last days. Revelation 1319. If anyone has an ear, let him hear us what that means. John is writing this in his day to people who read those words and he saying to them, listen to the prophecies don't dismiss these things as something so far removed from you that they have no practical value saying the opposite.
God is saying. Through him. These have of value, and we, unlike any other generation to whomsoever much is given much is required.
Let us start buckling down a little bit more on the fulfillment of these prophecies and say our message is relevant going to take more than T-shirts and bumper stickers to win lost souls.
It always has and being a separatist as a Christian, where you know I'm just in my little Christian commune. I don't really reach out to anybody that's never worked. It's never been part of God's plan.
We ought to reach out to the lost and you say well I don't have any success. I don't have anybody. Are you praying are you asking God to send them your way. What makes you think you can do anything without him when he clearly says you cannot. So this is an encouragement not a scolding.
If you been guilty of being a separatist and be a separatist no more reach out to the loss.
Don't try to convert them to your lifestyle.
Convert them to Christ. Nobody's interested in your lifestyle as being the gospel is Jesus Christ. One Christian might not want to eat this kind of food while I'm not going to convert somebody to eating them type of wood i.e. because I'm a Christian. One might raise their kids. This way one might die where this kind of blowing. I'm not converting anybody to my lifestyle.
It's Christ likeness that were after. That's paramount.
I'm not trying to convert them to a man-made doctrine want the person of Jesus Christ in their life. According to the Bible. Those are the things we sorted out as we move forward. And so what we of course are not looking for the beast. We won't be here for that.
We are looking for lost souls were victims of their own sin and will be the time of Jacob's trouble, such as mentioned in the world is never known. I want to read this one part will be closing. I think I got 25 minutes left.
Amen. Revelation is a couple of them for someone to take Jeremiah 10 my purposes. This, there are many deceivers that have gone out into the world when not to be afraid of these people.
We are to certainly respect the damage that they cause in the lives of others. We are to be more focused on the message we have, to deliver because no one else is God. It Jeremiah said to the people in his day, who were essentially throwing out their covenants with their God, their own identity. Thus says Yahweh your learn the way of the Gentiles not be dismayed at the signs of heaven for the Gentiles are dismayed at them ceasing to be distinct and different and I like them.
Maintain your separation of identity with God. We read in chapter 13 that antichrist is going to have power to call lightning and thunder down from heaven remarkable signs that are lying wonders, they are wonders.
But they lie in the lie in this miracle is taken place. What's the return address where did it come from who's doing. So what Farrell's magicians can turn a stick into a snake.
Our God will gobble them up and this is what we have to keep in front of us. Revelation 1314 and I saw one of us has exhibited been mortally wounded, and his deadly wound was healed. World going to be very thrilled that in all the world marveled and followed the beast when not marveling it is because there one minute just to be admitted to hospital call and if the person said this is my pastor.
The staff would be responsive to that in some way. There was a reverence to the office of clergy now is gone. Some still are when many are just totally call the shutdown did not even friendly at the back. Things are changing.
Think people are being deceived and we are not to be frightened or intimidated or marvel at these things as they do. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth. Revelation 1314 by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived in hospitals.
They have so much ability to do things that we never could do before me pretty soon a head transplant up your drive through event's outpatient. We applaud the advances that medical sciences may, with respect to God. Nothing. God is just opened up knowledge to man as Daniel said last days knowledge will increase, so will be intimidated by this decent point them out next time somebody actually there. You know mankind is going on such a dinner this course of development and success, point out another not distill sinners is still wicked with all the technology that they have the going to use it to slaughter people who don't agree with. When they settle believe it is a look at the book of Revelation is calling you seeing it right in front of your eyes. You're seeing the mark of the beast you're seeing this ability to turn activate your phone just with your face. Imagine how much more if that phone can read every bit of information about you to that ship planted in your head would be better if David got to plant the chips in people's heads slingshot event. You know, all right, just my signal time is almost up. God is giving lost souls time to receive salvation and not spend it on the ruin of their own souls. You and I know that this is a fight that we are going to fight to the finish. We all have loved ones who are not receiving Christ. That ain't the end of the story will fight this to the end because many many have prevailed this way. Matthew 2424 for Christ.
For false Christ and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible.
The elect Revelation 1920 then the beast was captured with him the false prophet worked signs in his presence, which he deceived those who receive the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.
So the Bible will let it go way back in chapter 13 of Revelation. This was brought up. It was then brought up in chapter 14 is then brought up in chapter 90 close with this, the gospel of Jesus Christ can be preached in the Revelation of Jesus Christ start getting more familiar with the fulfilled prophecies and use them on behalf lost souls never know any better without you move thanks for tuning into cross reference radio for this study.
