Welcome to God first with Boise, when committing to encouraging you to put God first, while viewing life the window in the Bible. Now, in honor of the one and only true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob left doing fine.

See Thomas for today's message. Well, unless you have been living in a cave isolated from society.

For the last several years, you know that the spirit of lawlessness has descended upon our lien and I'll be honest with you folks.

This is a topic that you would be fine with me if I never had to speak on it again. I have grown tired and weary from speaking on this, but the Holy Spirit will not allow me to stop speaking because the Bible tells us that we have to be salt and light. We have to shine the light of our Lord into this sin darken world and the Bible tells us that in the great tribulation that will be a time in which there will be seven angels they will be given seven trumpets and as each angel sounds in succession, a judgment from God will be poured out upon the earth. There will be two great tremendous judgments and you asked the question why will God pour out such devastating judgments upon the earth, will the overarching main reason is because of for those who have rejected Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. But there are many symptoms of that rejection, and one of the symptoms is lawlessness and we see that again poured out upon our lien. Second Thessalonians chapter 2 verses nine through 12 tells us the coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan with all power signs and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perished the calls they did not receive the love of the truth that they might be saved. For this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie and that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness where people you look around the world today.

Look around our society and you see that there are many that have pleasure in on righteousness.

And as we look at so many events that have happened with police officers lately. Well, there's another one and Lebron James is at it again a Columbus Ohio police officer fatally shot McKay O'Brien, a 16-year-old girl as she was lunging to stab another teen girl now one would think that the officer will be healed a hero by all for fulfilling his duty to serve, and to protect but not all feel this way, including Lebron James of the Los Angeles Lakers, who tweeted to his 50+ million followers. So when you listen now is Harris Faulkner as she is speaking on this tweet and was Lebron James gives a warning include one for his reaction to the police shooting of 16-year-old McKay O'Brien in Columbus, Ohio, Lebron James tweeted out a photo of the police officer who shot the black teenager with the caption your next hashtag accountability and hourglass, the city Moji that generally means time is running out so Lebron James is doing here.

He's dioxin this police officer and I don't know what he means exactly by your next I don't know if you say you're the next to be convicted or or if he saying that that your nexus for your life is going to be threatened with with violence, or gunshot. I don't know exactly what he meant by that, but he had a follow-up tweets. I want you to listen to his follow-up.

This defensive response in clip two. James later deleted that trait and acknowledge that emotions are running high. He also offered a sympathies to the teenagers family and tweeted this I was so tired his word, of seeing black people killed by police.

I took the tree down because it's being used to create more hate.

This isn't about what officer it's about the entire system, and they always use our words to create more racism.

I am so desperate for more accountability Lebron James and many of the liberals they condemn this officer who took the life of a teenager in order to save the life of another.

Keep in mind that the young ladies called the police officer. They called 911 and said they're trying to stab us would not send an officer so the officer answers the call. He does his duty.

But I guess in the mind of Lebron James he would be okay with with the one team stab in the other, you know, a white officer, he sees the life of one black team from another Lebron James has a problem with this.

Listen to Sen. Ted Cruz as he gives his take on Sen. Ted Curtis says this type of reaction is getting to be all to comment.

This is a pattern where the left consistently goes after attacks and demonizes police officers and they do so often before the facts are known often before there's any evidence of what happened in this instance, your next could certainly be interpreted by some even for as a call for violence and I think it was a grossly irresponsible message for Lebron James to send out Lebron James needs to be reminded. He is so many others need to be reminded of the biblical passage which says that we are to be quick to hear and slow to speak, we should be quick to gather the facts gather the information and slow to give our decision slow to give our take on what is happening but see people that have a desire for lawlessness. People that are bent towards going against law enforcement people who are who are bent towards going against what God years is a God of law and order. But God is going to bring judgment again during the great tribulation for those who have this love for lawlessness, which is the spirit of antichrist. I mentioned in Revelation that there will be a period of tribulation in which angels will pour out judgments from God. As we look at Revelation chapter 8 verse eight we find there. Then the second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and 1/3 of the sea became blood receive this biblical allusion to the sea and that usually means the sea prominent to the promised land.

The Mediterranean Sea. So the apostle John is he's looking by way of a vision into the future.

He likely sees a large burning meteorite crashing into the Mediterranean Sea and then in verse nine it says in 1/3 of the living creatures in the sea died in 1/3 of the ships were destroyed. This meteorite will keel one third of the seas inhabitants one third of the ships will be destroyed and the resulting deaths in the. The chemical composition of this meteorite will calls water to appear as blood, folks, this is judgment from God that is coming upon an unbelieving world. The world who loves lawlessness. When you listen now to Brian kilometers he gives his thoughts concerning Lebron James Ryan and all of Harry Harris uncovering sports and and being involved in sports.

I'm curious to know your take on how this affects other athletes to have someone of Lebron James stature come out like this. Be stupid enough to think that he can deleted tweet that we can't say I'm in and what does that mean what why is the Commissioner saying anything. In fact, it's interpreted as violent or just not helpful heresies running the league. Lebron James runs the league yet. Lebron James might as well he is more powerful than the commission what he says goes. And the old players check with him before they decide to not show up for a game or to protest for a game or or to do whatever they want to do. That's how much power he has and I will say this I just did a show Jim Brown who in the 1960s Lois data will Chamberlain Mohammed Ali and so many others that when athletes stood up and said enough in the 1960s and 70s needs work with prisoners so I know he wanted Michael Jordan to stand up and speak out for the longest time in joints is not knocking to do that so I think a lot of people say no. I think athletes in this position. Some say should speak up, but water just take a breath and why is he even on Twitter because if you go out and threaten somebody I thought you get and from twitter so you see the double standard. If a Christian if a conservative says something that the liberal left doesn't like to get banned from twitter, but if you on the left. What you say fits their narrative then you get a pass when it comes Lebron James and so many others forget the facts you just automatically go against law enforcement again folks, the spirit of lawlessness. This being toward going against low in order and God is a God of law and order, as we return Revelation chapter 8 verse 10 then the third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it failed on the third of the rivers and on the springs of water. So I believe this to be another meteorite. Remember Revelation has a lot of symbolic language we know is not a literal star because a literal star is much larger than the entire earth but this meteorite, it penetrates so deeply into the earth that it will pollute one third of the water supply. Those who are dependent on freshwater will die again God's judgment because of the spirit of lawlessness the spirit of antichrist. And this is my warning for those who are being deceived. For those who are embracing this this anti-police rhetoric. I want to warn you that there is judgment that is coming. If you do not get right, and accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

Well after he was criticized Lebron James did sort of give an apology, but if you asked me is a fake apology. Listen include five became dataset anger does not decided to anyone good Viagra still here for what happened to that girl by 70 furtive family justice will prevail. But I just think his job lately responsible out the 50 million people. If you watch ESPN and the others they lead every single SportsCenter with athletes speaking out a racist society, we are there is no balance anywhere there in sports and the ratings are down 40% on TMJ. The Dell 40% on ABC, and 20% on ESPN and I think these things are related.

People want to break what I would like is for someone to ask Lebron James what did he want the officer to do differently because if the officer had not fired his gun.

We did the one teenager would've been successful in stabbing the other, which means that teenager probably would've lost her life, but you see I guess in the eyes Lebron that again is okay for a black girl to stab and kill another black girl as long as is not a police officer who was white involved. Because you don't see the protesting going on when there's black on black crime that is happening every day throughout the nation.

You don't see the uproar there's only an uproar in which there is a white police officer that is involved. Folks, it is hypocrisy.

It is a a a sign of the spirit of lawlessness. It is a a sign of the spirit of deception of bigotry and is something that we do not need in our nation, and then I see the comments from Joy bear the view and she said what work, why can't the officer fire a warning shot will joy if if you shoot a gun into the air. The bullet is going to come down somewhere.

That is why offices are not allowed to do so. We had recently a couple years ago in which a woman was keel from celebratory Fourth of July gunfire was only just fired into the air. The bullet came down to hit the woman in her house and killed her.

Can't do that to someone in the leg is not going to incapacitate a person more than likely immediately. She said, walking to shoot her in the leg was sugar in the buttocks. Will you know we just had a the week earlier, in which Dante right that the unfortunate case in which the officer grabbed the wrong weapon by mistake.

She grabbed her firearm rather than the Taser. She shot him in the torso but did that stop him immediately. No, he put the car in drive and he drove off and he he went down the road a little while and then he became incapacitated.

So if the officer had did anything as Vera hesitated for another moment, the, the one teenager likely would've been successful in stabbing the other.

So he reacted.

I think appropriately in the way in which he was trained. Sadly there are those out there that want to turn this into a matter of race in the root of it is because they are of the spirit of lawlessness were going to talk about it more foes run to take a short break will you come back.

We want to continue to look at the judgment of God that is going to be poured out during the great tribulation, when he is going to let the world know because of their rejection of him. There is a price to pay. Don't go away you are tuned into God first program you're listening to Brian Thomas only got more wine please visit God not or around the library.

There you will find articles and messages available and downloads on various topics such as salvation, marriage lesson, just to name a few. Also, sign up for our monthly newsletter and visit our web store visits God as we continue to look at God's judgment as he pours it out in Revelation chapter 8 verse 11 the name of the star is one third of the waters became wormwood immediately and died from the water, because it was made bitter. Wormwood is prominent in the Middle East and and when consumed.

It causes convulsions and it can cause paralysis. The water heater is compared to the bitterness of wormwood. So wormwood is the common name for RT's media at Cynthia which is a bitter herb which has an aromatic or that is used to make absent, which is a highly intoxicating green liquor now.

I've never tasted it, but for those who have.

They say it is very bitter and has a again the the plan itself.

Wormwood has a very great aroma, but it tastes bitter and so as we look here when we see what is taking place. This water is going to become bitter light wormwood and you think again of a bitter herb you can think of of parsley or rosemary a time and in this wormwood is going to come upon the Earth's water and is going to be made bitter. Again folks God is going to pour out his judgment upon an unbelieving world and as you look at scientific scientific theories concerning what would happen if a meteor or comet will strike the earth, and many believe that there will be this chemical change in the atmosphere due to what is described as heat shock upon entry of the Earth's atmosphere or upon impact with the earth, and this reaction between oxygen and nitrogen in the atmosphere will produce nitric acid rain and so this fits perfectly with this description that we see here in which the star wormwood. The Bible tells us is going to call me contaminate 1/3 of the earth's fresh water, and many will die. God is going to bring judgment upon those who are against him.

He's going to bring judgment upon those who are of the spirit of lawlessness that we see sweeping this world today and I want to encourage folks accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior turn away from this sin. So as we continue looking at again this case in Ohio your list. Listen to Kelly Machen, Amy's take concerning this vilification of this police officer who saved this young woman's life. I went Lebron James and Daphne dimension accountability like accountability for a test saying something wholly inappropriate putting a target on the back of a police officer and for a moment think that this was not some celebrity athlete from the last Lebron James, let's say his name was Lebron Trond and he was a right-wing activist he would beat Dan from Twitter, even though it's his job likely all of his sponsorships and he would be relegated to the outskirts of society there is one standard for the last. I had another standard for the right mistress makes it crystal clear with no retribution here from Twitter for that appalling tweet. So you see the double standard folks and let me tell you as we continue going into the future.

I want to sound like the doom and gloom God that things are going to get worse, the, the hatred and the persecution of Christians and what we are facing right now in this nation is not even really persecution immediate it is persecution from a social standpoint, but in terms of it is going to escalate is going to continue to increase until the return of our Lord. But it is not just the athletes is not just Lebron James who are are going along with the spirit of lawlessness. We see it coming from even higher places as Harris Faulkner speaks on gin sake. In clip seven.

There are no details emerging on that Columbus shooting I neighbor who will join us a little bit later in the program told the New York Post to watch the incident after it happened on his home security video was secured above his garage so he could see and says that McKay Bryant was in full attack mode.

Those are his words and he believed cops had no choice but to shoot at the White House portray the incident quite differently watch. She was a child were thinking of her friends and family and the communities that are hurting grieving her loss.

We know that police violence disproportionately impacts black and Latino people and communities and that black women and girls like black men and boys experience higher rates of police islands so our focus is on working to address systemic racism and how this headline from an op-ed in the New York Post gin sake baselessly and disgracefully radicalized the killing in the Columbus foods. This essay is really sad because we see here this inserting of systemic racism when race was not a factor.

This police officer was simply doing what he was trained and taught to do, which was to save the life of a person who is being attacked but what it is people. These people want lawlessness and they are using people in society is Pons and I'm trying to encourage people to wake up and understand what is taking place. What is most important when we look at George Florida Asmus of the question what what was his eternal destination because regardless of their verdict with the police officer dear children, George Floyd's eternal state did not change Asmus of the question, what about my Collier Bryant. What about Dante right where they ready to go and be with the Lord. And as I look at churches today in challenging churches because what I see you so many that are crying and systemic racism, but I don't hear many saying things about make sure that your heart is right with Jesus Christ, so that when you leave this earth weather is by way of a police officers going to work or any other means. Are you ready to step into eternal life with Jesus Christ. That should really be our focus, but many are being distracted by Satan's tactics, but we as believers in Christ to transcend that we should be able to rise above that and understand the attacks of the deception of the enemy. Listen folks, officers have tough jobs and they're not perfect, they sometimes make mistakes. But if you don't want things to turn out bad with the police officer is really simple.

Just don't commit crimes and if you are confronted with an officer don't resist, you will likely live but what happens is people commit crimes in the resist and then protest breakout when things go bad, but I don't hear people saying hey stop committing the crimes. Chaos in our nation is because of sin, we see murder rates skyrocketing among civilians as the media continues to to demonize law enforcement and all Lord said this would be one of the signs of the, the society, the condition of society before his return.

In Matthew 2412.

He said because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold and we see a growing coal because of people like Maxine Waters were encouraging people to get confrontational with the police officers to high heaven SIF calling the police, shaking off Dante right more than 100 protesters have been arrested Chandler side have been assaulted volatile situation elsewhere in the US testing violent riots leaching at far left agitations attack businesses and PlayStation aquatic congresswoman St. Walsh is he/she is a chapter Xi to price instance she told him to get will confrontational.

What should protesters do believe the woman Maxine wanted to tromp accusing him of inciting the January 6 riots. What is reckless comments on 10 to 19 sidemen chance for this type of dangerous, electric, and yet the bulk of the Canadian Des Peres pass until you close the hypocrisy is almost maddening because again Maxine Waters. She points the fingers at others, and she accuses them of inciting riots yet. She's telling people to get confrontational with police officers and not only that she actually requested a police escort to and from the airport herself see these people in high places.

They want security for them sales but they don't want to father's the question that I have are you a lover of truth, or did you have pleasure in unrighteousness. Scripture says they did not receive the love of the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness you see people who have this bend towards embracing untruths that is the spirit of lawlessness when you see people who just jump to conclusions as to the police officers in the wrong that is the spirit of lawlessness, that is the spirit of the antichrist people that hate the police and that is why I love the Truth Network because this network is based on the truth promoting the truth. The truth of God's holy word for those that love the Lord. They love the truth but where in the world is trying to make you think you're crazy but I want to tell you now if you follow Jesus Christ you're not crazy. These people are under delusion because they are lovers of lawlessness. They are lovers, they have pleasure in unrighteousness. The last one that I want to leave you with Bree Newsom. She is a black lives matter. Activists, she posted on Twitter quote teenagers have been having fights, including fights involving knives for eons. We do not need police to address these situations by showing up to the scene and using a weapon against one of the teenagers y'all need help. I mean that sincerely." She send all meaning the police officers need help okay. Remember, this officer save the life of a young black woman who was being attacked by another black woman she posted in another message quote everyone should be frightened that the ruling white elite have done such a thoroughly successful job of not only disconnecting us from the means of basic self-sufficiency, but also convincing us we need armed white officers to manage our children and communities frightening." What is frightening folks, is the fact that these people are so far gone into their sin that they can no longer reason was right from wrong. Romans chapter 1 says that they will be given over to a depraved mind, because they love unrighteousness because they would not accept the truth.

The judgment is coming and if you're not ready. If you're not on the side of Jesus Christ when he comes back, you're going to be left behind to face this great judgment. So I would encourage you to receive Jesus Christ today and I know people things look grim when you look around society but here's the encouraging thing that I want to leave you with that.

Jesus said when you see all these things begin to happen to look up and watch, because your redemption draws near.

Yes, my heart breaks for the chaos in society.

My heart breaks for those who are no are are going to be judged during the great tribulation for those who are going to go into the lake of fire for those who are going to go into eternal damnation.

But I get excited when I know that our Lord said this would be the sign of his coming and I believe that any day now we're going to hear the sound of a trumpet rig want to hear the sound of the archangel and then I will limit will descend into the clouds and we will be caught up together to meet him and us. We will always be with. I am excited about that folks.

And that is what our minds need to stay focused on. We continue to fight. We continue to battle and I mean fight spiritually in these last days. We are here to warn others get right with Jesus Christ turn away from the spirit of lawlessness because the king is coming soon. Which side are you going to be on side of eternal life was out of eternal damnation will close. We are all out of time, but I want to thank you for joining me this week.

Please come back next time. As we continue to encourage you to put God first, while viewing life through the window of the bike. Until then, remember to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, bless God's great nation of Israel. The only wise God be glory through Jesus Christ, forever. Amen.

You can think of the Bible blame God for Ryan and I first was the right protection under our copyright is until next time, Israel first
