It was written by man what you want finger writing on the wall too late action.
Moses had the tablets. They didn't believe that eventually somebody stole every criticism of Jesus Christ is a revelation of the one who made Chris's every time somebody mocks the Lord revealing the revealing something about themselves that is a malfunction from hell. This is cross reference radio with our pastor and teacher Rick Gaston.

More information about cross reference radio, specifically how you can get a free copy of this teaching. This is the conclusion of Pastor Rick's message called escaping Israel will be in Mark chapter 13 today.
This culture is fighting to make God's morals obsolete obsolete no longer you know just defunct out of style to Satan's delight is understand. Satan hates the people that hate Christ don't think that because people hate Christ that Satan loves them. He loves using he hates all mankind.
So here's this culture that wherein trying to reverse everything.
Isaiah called it 700 years over 700 years before Christ came as in chapter 5 woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness ever doing it in this day as it would come always addresses the Lord to go to his law of Moses don't do this don't do that is bad for everybody and they would switch it around know this is actually good for each other. Stealing is good.
It helps help so one stolen from. It doesn't help them.
They're insistent that judgment is untrue seals their doom.
And that's what they do they think that I don't believe it is not true. Okay, you're fine. Then is too much evidence is too much Scriptural prophecy and knowing it and being able to draw it out. I have noticed when I've used prophecy you on some unbelievers who are adamant about their unbelief. They don't want to hear.
They want to shut me down the prophecy we could talk about crisis crossing to talk about sin when a startup, the facts of prophecy not anyone here that why you can't disputed. We talk about what the Bible called the cashless society long before they were credit cards long before they were big coins long before these things he said this was going to happen is the day is going to come when you can't buy or sell without being plugged into the government barter system will be done.
Bible call then is this many other such things.
John's Gospel for those they are trying to make sin honorable. They are even trying to make it honorable to God by taking their perversity into churches and flaunting it.
You can go to a church and you can have someone that is totally steeped in perversity and everybody knows it, and that calling this wonderful John chapter 15 verse 18. If the world hates you, you know that it hated me before it hated you.
Because of that aroma that fragrance that's coming off the believer simply for not agreeing with a Lucifer bloated society. That's why you will be hated because you disagree just go to the office place.
Then around the corner and say that I think that's sick. I watch what happens. You demonically stuff with fog raw humans, you know, they've taken taken the you know they take the goose of the dock and they force-feed it until he's liver becomes bloated and then they butcher it after they've course skeleton serve the liver foie gras was that from is from a goose. Laura talked that we force-fed as was say Satan and antichrist are trying to do to us now. So Jesus warns, he says these are climactic times when you see that temple built and you see it defiled. You understand that the end is coming and I have 1260 days of persecution from that point forward.
So, Luke's gospel chapter 21 Jesus said and you will be hated for my namesake is not talking just to the Jew, the Jews are hated because the Jews we know Satan hates them because the Jews are the people chosen by God to produce Messiah and many other promises surrounding that event, but the Christians will be hated. The believers will be hated. Verse 13. Now we come to our text this morning, let him who is on the housetop not go down into the house nor enter to take anything out of his house know their rooftops in ancient Israel the time Jesus preached serve as our porches, our patios, our backyard deck sets were people went to hang out and he is is saying if you're on out on the patio and you listening to the radio will annoy him. He has a radio anymore. It was if you smart device and you get the headline antigovernment. This you know the antichrists we won't know his name, they'll know it will be here for that. When they say so-and-so has defiled the Jewish Temple when you hear that on the radio don't go back in the house to get something, no matter what it is.
Our people are mean you know we have to use you to catch the urgency here which were to instantly realize that antichrist is a monster is not a friend of Israel and this this hatred is unprecedented for the Jews. With this unprecedented hatred and unprecedented resources. It will be extreme. The extermination verse 20 will come back to that later.
So as the news breaks of this abomination escape before the checkpoints are in place, don't hesitate flea delay in Pompeii. Your Pompeii close to Matt Maples Mount Vesuvius centuries ago there was a very large volcano there that erupted and wiped out the city of Pompeii other places 200 boats were coming to the health, many of them got wiped out also. But anyway, archaeologist have found beneath the skeleton that perished in Pompeii. The remains of a leather pouch with 20 coins of silver in it and a key which was believed to be his house key. The point is, he took the key went back in the house. He got his silver and he never made it out so that is just a natural lesson from a natural disaster, but this is a spiritual lesson from an omnipotent God nieces don't go back soon as you hear the news you have no time global persecution of the Christian and the Jew of the non-Jewish Christian will be everywhere. You know, the ethnic Jew cannot, he won't be able to opt out of his ethnicity but people can opt out of Christianity, the Gentiles are still Not going to follow Christ and they will course, perished because of that, but the Jews a stock they cannot sell cannot a Jew, the DNA research is going to be thorough there.
This is why you you have the hundred 12,000 from each tribe.
The going to be able to identify without any doubt your Jew into that now. Verse 16.
Let him who is in the field not go back to get us close. If you're at work and you hear on the radio. He's just done this. Don't go back home.
This is radical stuff. This is the time of Jacob's trouble. As Jeremiah prophesied or read that verse later.
But how will they know where to go. Okay flea flea where well some of the will be process of elimination.
At this point.
Smart phones will be a very beneficial will be talking with you. Those roads are closed but here's one that's open and likely the only roads going to be open will be to Jordan, I don't think Egypt's going to play along. I don't think you'll make it there anywhere in his some precedents for this is troops will seal off exit routes of the city because he's been ready for this house to house Dragnet's rounding up Jews as they did in with the Nazis. Whether the Jew is compliant or noncompliant, they will die if caught this global surrender is what is going to take place antichrist. He's going to control the world, I believe, again, for those of you who are familiar with Ezekiel 38. I believe that section of Scripture takes place before. That's what gets antichrist into power that allows him to be able to make a covenant with the Jews. That's why the armies are put in around Jerusalem. And yes control and the Gentiles will be receiving his mark with allegiance Revelation 1317. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive the mark on their right hand or on their foreheads pause here for a minute. This was not possible without the technology we have now and in John's day. What was he thinking this can be attached to. I went on a house I can work now in full knowledge of how this is going to work barcodes were just the beginning of it coming.
And do you know view in us being greatly developed.
Even now there are already chip implants that can read data at the convenience of technology. You will have to carry a wallet. One reason why like sports coaches.
I can put my wallet in one pocket my phone and another pocket in ammunition in this pocket and you know I'm just ready so continues and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name.
You going to have to be tied into to this monster. What if during this recent mask mandate, which was for the first time. I don't know that there's ever been another time in human history with globally. Everyone fell under the same mandate I mean back in Shinar you know before the flood. Everybody living in one city I mean the world and we watched this happen of this does not mean the wet mass wearing is the mark but it does most certainly does me is that we now live in a time where what rules could with Alexander the great, could not do with Genghis con could not do with Napoleon could not do a host of others who wanted to conquer the planet.
Now it can be done now. You can put everybody under one mandate, and that's was going to happen with the chip you will be put under amended will talking about a word about a vaccine being mandated. What happens when this becomes mandated to lose almost a death sentence to do with government demands that a antigovernment statement and telling you what is going to happen because the Scripture says it, those who willingly receive this mark.
They will be happy and gay and I'm I don't mean the word gay in its corrupted sense.
I mean it the way it meant before the 1970s but anyway those who willingly receive this mark are doomed to ceiling their own faith of fate. God will not be able to save them because he's already said verse that Revelation 14 verse nine. Then 1/3 of the angel, then 1/3 angel followed them, saying with a loud voice of anyone worships the beast and his image and receive his mark on his forehead or his hand. He himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out to listen to this in full strength. That is, without the grace he continues 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.
Revelation 1920 then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. See the willfulness the worshiping of the imaging the bottle.
The live there now irretrievable say how do you know they follow the law. Second Thessalonians 210 because they did not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved. And that is in the context of antichrist and what he is doing.
Verse 17 but woe to those who are pregnant and those who are nursing babies in those days. Another burden advanced pregnancy. Caring for little children again Gerrit well I told Debbie Jeremiah 30 verse seven.
Jeremiah says alas for that day is great massive defensive end times so that none is like it as Jesus said, not since creation and it is a time of Jacob's trouble. The Jews are singled out for extermination. They can highlight they cannot just on their ethnicity. Regardless of what they do with their religion. They are Jews, nonetheless, and that's all they have to be and then Jeremiah says, and it is a time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it third of the Jewish population of that's not little and of how many are slotted two thirds wiped out. This is what's coming to mankind. Verse 18 and pray that your flight may not be in winter. Another obstacle of bad weather and so he urges the people to pray that there will be no part of this while in Jerusalem, especially in while Jerusalem writhes in pain the rest of the world be going to games wherever there's not wiped out from other natural destructions are. Some people be going on with business as usual. Verse 19 for those days, there will be tribulation, such as not been seen since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be why the five or six evolutionists would just pass out.
Hearing that that God created. I heard an evolutionist, several of them recently, I've been on this thing watching things on bugs and animals and several of these evolutionists is getting all excited but I'm running out of time so they say evolution has thought of what you just personified it. You just admit it. It's a person and not some random selection and stuff in their own hypocrisy. Don't see it when we see it anyway and and believe me or believe the scientists who live and scientist lie a lot. For instance, iceberg smelting were going to get flooded. You can disprove this with a glass of ice water as you put ice in ice water and when the ice melts you don't have more water you have less and so when icebergs melt with less water when you talking about okay it's right you do, do it at home. All of a sudden, that's not science right to science is the study of creation with honesty, I gotta finish this up because you people have places to go and where was were in those days. Verse 19 it is self-explanatory through the other prophets. We know that there's going to be 1260 days from that point forward from the time that antichrist defiles the temple to the return of Christ. That's 3 1/2 years there more days tacked on. Because your judgments and their cleanup operations there actually a few years of of cleaning up battlefield debris and and toxins. There will be those full by signs and wonders because they did not love the truth. Verse 13 verse 20 and unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved but for the elect's sake, whom he chose. He shortened the days men would've been wiped off the face of the earth. God's wrath poured out the great tribulation is for their abominations. Zechariah 14 for and in that day his feet will stand on mount on the Mount of olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east and the Mount of olives shall be split in two, from east to west. That's his return, the battle of Armageddon will be happening north of Jerusalem, and now they'll be taking dealt with two while he puts his feet on the ground there at the amount of olives, from where he ascended to heaven the context of verse 20 is clearly the Jews and use of the word elect in John's second letter when he uses the phrase elect. The context is clear. It is the church which is made up of Jew and Gentile here. It is the Jewish people as according to Isaiah 65 verses eight and nine finished without rushing verse 21 then if anyone says to you, look, here is the Christ, or look, he is there do not believe it. A lot of Jewish religious activity going on the going to be desperate for their deliverer and the Jewish people to at this time in history are so desperate for peace that they're willing to appease and compromise and bend over backwards with a really should not be doing this and this is going to work against them. They are desperate for peace to a fault, and this is why the covenant with antichrist will take off. Jim Daniel chapter 9 then he shall confirm a covenant with many for one week. That's a seven year. But in the middle of the week 3 1/2 year. He shall bring an end to the sacrifice and offering abomination of desolation. Jesus spoke about quoting the section of Scripture and on the wing of abominations right on the tip of those abominations shall be one who makes desolate, that is the filed king of the son of perdition. The beast that continues even until the consummation, that is, Christ returning as I just read from Zechariah, which is determined, is poured out on the desolate and that is the deep such as the world is never seen. Verse 22 for false Christ's and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, the elect and this is primarily Israel and the converts Gentile converts are going to be fooled there going to be so willing to believe that they'll die believing that et al.'s solid their conversions are going to be and we fret over. You know, things go gas prices going up, which is understandable to point, we gotta keep our perspective anyway. Second, this morning to Lot 9 the coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan with all power signs and lying wonders he's going to do some impressive things and only truth will be truth of what righteousness because he's going to be a dirty dude he is not going to be your boy I sure hope my daughter would marry somebody like him. He is not going to be that guy. He is the reason why dad's own guns that were daughters I should say while an added reason.
There are other reasons in there good reasons. Anyway, verse 23 pate he see I have told you all things beforehand.
Following the Lord's instructions. Following these instructions first century Christians when the temple of the Jews was still up before the Romans. When the Roman started decease of surrounding Jerusalem when stuff was beginning to happen were Christian Jews in Jerusalem your James was leader of that church. They packed up and they moved to Jordan, a city called Pella. This is historical, you can look it up because they believe what Jesus said when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies flee to the mountains and they did. And because they did when the Romans finally did wipeout fairly wiped out the Jews and drooling of the famine, the starvation of civil infighting hell on earth that the Jews went through in the city. They escaped that I believe is a dress rehearsal for what's going to happen with the Jews there going to make it out. Many of them who listen to what is been preached. They will make it out. Pella is about 40 miles northwest of of Jerusalem, a 50 miles a sorry Jesus says here in verse 23.
See, I have told you all things beforehand. He says so now you know is I finished he got more to say but I want to close with three verses in one common Isaiah 44 seven Yahweh speaking to the prophet Isaiah, and who can proclaim as I do, then let him declare it and set it in order for me since I appointed the ancient people and the things that are coming and shall come let them show these things to them. So God is saying, I tell the future. Who else does that continues. Isaiah 48. Even from the beginning. I have declared it to you before it came to pass.
I proclaimed it to you this you should say my idol has done them my carved image in my molded image have commanded them, and so the prophet says I'm getting this on paper God is calling the future and he's calling it so that you can't say all this is just coincidence. All my God did it. You will believe. Know the benefits of knowing end time prophecy in real time right now and this is it.
And don't back down from Dulles is that Nostradamus nonsense is crazy. You can fit anything. I mean there shall come a man with a size 9 shoe initial walk down the street you know how many guys at night is not anyway that just so general and flawed goal. They don't have it. Finally, second Peter chapter 1 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit still try to throw up in your face things like will the Bible was written mimed by men when it wasn't written by pachyderms, even though their biggest elephants. Of course it was written by man what you want finger writing on the wall. They didn't believe that is too late. Actually, Moses had the tablets.
They didn't believe that eventually somebody stole every criticism of Jesus Christ is a revelation of the one who made the creases every time somebody marks the Lord revealing revealing something about themselves that is a malfunction from hell move.
