Pastor’s Report - 10 Sep 2021
Rivers Of Righteousness

Rivers of Righteousness

"For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream:" (Isaiah 66:12)

A Continuation

In the last Pastor's Report we finished the subject of the tidal waves of sin with a quotation from Mr. Armstrong, who expounded on the repercussions of Adam taking to himself the ability to determine what is right and what is wrong. But Mr. Armstrong did not end there. He went on to explain how God's Plan is for the overall rescue of mankind, and how He will use something that appears totally negative to an eventual glorious benefit.

“Go, therefore, Adam, and all progeny that shall form the world, produce your own fund of knowledge. Decide for yourself what is good and what is evil... After the world of your descendants has written the lesson in 6,000 years of human suffering, anguish, frustration, defeat and death – after the world that shall spring from you shall have been brought to confess the utter hopelessness of the way of life you have chosen – I will supernaturally intervene.

"By supernatural divine power I shall then take over the government of the whole world. With reeducation, I will produce a happy world of PEACE. And on repentance, I shall then offer eternal salvation to all. After a thousand years of that happy world to come, I will resurrect from death to mortal life all who have died uncalled during this present 6,000 years. Their judgment shall then come. And on repentance and faith, eternal life shall be offered them.

“During this 6,000 years, when I myself shall cut them off from me, they shall not be eternally judged. Only, as they sow during their lifetimes, they shall reap. But when I open eternal salvation to them, there shall be no Satan to hinder or deceive them – no Satan for them to overcome. Those few called during this first 6,000 years shall have to reject and resist Satan’s pulls and overcome. But those who overcome shall sit with me in my throne, and have power under me to rule all nations under my Supreme Rule.” (Mystery of the Ages, chapter 3, p120)

Anticipating the Feast

Since this will be the last Pastor's Report till after the Feast this year, I want to leave us all with a picture of what this one thousand year reign of Jesus Christ will bring about. Last Tuesday we celebrated the Day of Trumpets which looks forward to not only the return of Jesus Christ to this earth but the astounding contrast that will start to be seen and experienced from two divergent ways of life. The Feast of Trumpets indeed pictures a true axial period – from get to give, from war to peace, from lies to truth, from self-centred indifference or even hatred of others to outgoing love and concern for one's fellow man. From the destructive tidal waves of sin to the healing rivers of righteousness. It will be a time for the restitution of all things, as God's loving government progressively changes the hearts of all mankind from the way of Satan to the way of God.

  • Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the LORD your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before.
  • The threshing floors will be filled with grain; the vats will overflow with new wine and oil.
  • I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten— the great locust and the young locust, the other locusts and the locust swarm — my great army that I sent among you.
  • You will have plenty to eat, until you are full, and you will praise the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders for you; never again will my people be shamed.
  • Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the LORD your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed.
  • And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.
  • Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days. (Joel 2:23-29 NIV)
Rivers of the Spirit

The Holy Spirit is many times likened to water; water that not only cleanses the stony unconverted hearts, but also heals – physically and spiritually. (John 7:37-39) There would be no life at all on this planet Earth if there was no water. From the grinding power of glaciers and the massive waterfalls that help dissolve vital minerals into the soil, to the blood that courses around our body, all life depends on this amazing substance. But that is just physical life. The flowing of the Holy Spirit and the righteousness produced will bring REAL LIFE to all mankind.

  • For I am about to gather you out of the nations and collect you from all countries and bring you back to your own land;
  • Then I will pour clean water over you, cleansing you from all your profaneness and purifying you from all your idols.
  • I will give you a new nature, and I will put a new spirit within you. I will take away your hard nature and give you a nature that can be touched;
  • I will put my own spirit within you, I will make you live by my laws and you shall obey and observe my orders. (Ezekiel 36:24-27 Moffatt)
  • And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
  • And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. (Zechariah 14:8,9)

The prophet Ezekiel was given a vivid vision of a literal river flowing from beneath the throne in the Holy of Holies, which will bring life to everything it touches, everything it washes over;

  • When I arrived there, I saw a great number of trees on each side of the river.
  • He said to me, “This water flows toward the eastern region and goes down into the Arabah, where it enters the Dead Sea. When it empties into the sea, the salty water there becomes fresh.
  • Swarms of living creatures will live wherever the river flows. There will be large numbers of fish, because this water flows there and makes the salt water fresh; so where the river flows everything will live.
  • Fishermen will stand along the shore; from En Gedi to En Eglaim there will be places for spreading nets. The fish will be of many kinds—like the fish of the Mediterranean Sea.
  • But the swamps and marshes will not become fresh; they will be left for salt
  • Fruit trees of all kinds will grow on both banks of the river. Their leaves will not wither, nor will their fruit fail. Every month they will bear fruit, because the water from the sanctuary flows to them. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.” (Ezekiel 47:7-12 NIV)
Rivers of Truth

It's hard for us right now to imagine a world built on truth, as we have become so used to distrusting the veracity of what we read, see or hear regarding local or world news. "Fact-checking" has become a whole new industry, which itself engenders suspicion, as there are so many agendas behind the scenes. We've come to the point of just shrugging our shoulders when we hear of our politicians/presidents breaking their election promises, their manifestos – something supposedly untouchable. It's an issue as old as mankind – from the garden of Eden, through to Pilate's comment to Christ – "What is truth?" – to the deceitfulness in today's world, accurately described by the apostle Paul in Romans 3:12-18.

But things are about to change! Once Christ returns Jerusalem will be the very capital of the world, and just as the healing waters will flow in two directions from beneath the throne, so will the spirit of God – flow out to the nations with the precious truth of God's way of life; while at the same time the nations, guided by God's spirit, will themselves be flowing into Jerusalem specifically to hear and be taught - for the first time in their lives - the truth.

  • And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.
  • And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. (Isaiah 2:2,3)

The very purpose of the Feast is to depict this incredible time. God appointed seven whole days to picture not only how temporary this physical life is, but also a time when HIS TRUTH is destined to flow like a river from Jerusalem out to the rest of the world, and all that that implies. No doubt at the very beginning of the millennial rule, many individuals will be highly sceptical of this new form of government, having had their 'fingers burnt' so many times in the past. But in time they will come to trust those in positions of government, and that will be us, the newly born sons of God. For just as Christ was filled with grace and truth, so will we be. Just as "God cannot lie" (Hebrews 6:18,19) so neither will His sons. No more political promises that you know won't be kept, no more bribes and twisting of the truth from government officials, just for the sake of popularity or power.

  • Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment.
  • And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land...
  • ...Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.
  • And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. (Isaiah 42:1,2,16-17)
Rivers of Peace

And in time, this trust – which will never be broken – will bring about "Shalom", which is a Hebrew word meaning not only peace, but harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquillity. Part of the truth the nations will learn is the Plan of God encapsulated in the meaning of the Holy Days, so those physical people in the millennium will come to know – believing with all their heart – that their loved ones that were lost in the previous nightmarish time of Satan's rule will LIVE AGAIN. What peace that will bring to their lives! And what excitement and purpose, as they can take a personal part in getting the world ready for those to be brought back to life, pictured by the Last Great Day.

  • For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the LORD that hath mercy on thee.
  • O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted, behold, I will lay thy stones with fair colours, and lay thy foundations with sapphires.
  • And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles, and all thy borders of pleasant stones.
  • And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children. (Isaiah 54:10-13)

And peace not just for human beings either. Virtually any wildlife documentary these days includes scenes of animals preying on one another. A jackal with cubs to feed preying on the young cubs of a cheetah, and the cheetah preying on the newlyborn wildebeest calf. Nature red in tooth and claw, the whole creation groaning, as brought out in Romans 8, verses 20 to 22. But not for much longer:

  • The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
  • And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
  • And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.
  • They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.
  • And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, which shall stand for an ensign of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek: and his rest shall be glorious. (Isaiah 11:6-10)
Rivers of God's Perfect Love

In total contrast to a war-torn world that they have just experienced and with unspeakable horrors still fresh in their minds, the human pioneers of Christ's millennial rule will, for the first time in their lives, begin to experience the total opposite to hostility, antagonism and conflict. Many if not most will have come from broken homes, experienced divorce, rejection of one kind or another. And our job is to show another way of life, in order to; "heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. (Luke 4:18,19)

Since God is defined as love (I John 4:8,16), His sons will carry that same 'DNA', possess that same character and will therefore express genuine outgoing concern and compassion to the survivors of the greatest time of trouble that the world had ever experienced. The survivors of the Tribulation and the Day of the Lord will begin to find themselves part of a genuine Utopia – a world flowing with patience and kindness, where another's needs become as important as their own. This is the kind of society they will start to experience, where the rivers of God's love will heal their minds and hearts;

  • God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. (I John 4:16)
  • Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.
  • It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
  • It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.
  • Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. (I Corinthians 13:4-7 Amplified Bible)
  • Rejoice ye with Jerusalem, and be glad with her, all ye that love her: rejoice for joy with her, all ye that mourn for her:
  • That ye may suck, and be satisfied with the breasts of her consolations; that ye may milk out, and be delighted with the abundance of her glory.
  • For thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the Gentiles like a flowing stream: then shall ye suck, ye shall be borne upon her sides, and be dandled upon her knees.
  • As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you; and ye shall be comforted in Jerusalem. (Isaiah 66:10-13)
Everlasting Joy

Just as the tidal waves of sin brought heartache, death and destruction, so the healing water of God's rivers of righteousness will bring in everlasting joy. Initially that joy will be something tasted by each one of us who experience the first resurrection and not only are reunited with loved ones who died in the faith, and meet for the first time that "great cloud of witnesses" of Hebrews 11, but are also given incredible spirit life! But our task will involve showing all mankind the paths of righteousness which will lead them to the same joyful conclusion – entrance into the family of God. We can see this clearly illustrated in the book of Isaiah where the term "everlasting joy" is used both for the firstfruits – who as the firstborn will inherit a double portion – and also all Israel that will be converted during the Millennium:

  • But ye shall be named the Priests of the LORD: men shall call you the Ministers of our God: ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles, and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
  • For your shame ye shall have double; and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land they shall possess the double: everlasting joy shall be unto them. (Isaiah 61:6,7)
  • ... for in the wilderness shall waters break out, and streams in the desert.
  • And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water: in the habitation of dragons, where each lay, shall be grass with reeds and rushes...
  • ... And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away. (Isaiah 35:6,7,10)

Initially Adam and Eve were at peace with God and all He created. They didn't have to worry about how to put food on the table, or whether that niggling pain was anything serious - they had no pain! No troublesome neighbours or high-rise apartment for them, as they were in the most beautiful environment imaginable. Neither did they suffer loneliness and depression as they had each other and more importantly, they had a close relationship with their Creator. If any people ever experienced peace and freedom, it was Adam and Eve. But these utopian conditions only existed as long as they were obedient to God's will. The restitution of all things is such a condition – such joy – that will finally be made available to all mankind, and is not far off now.

Have an excellent Feast of Tabernacles – both picturing and looking forward to this glorious future!

  • And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
  • And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
  • And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
  • And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
  • And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
  • And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely .
  • He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. (Revelation 21:1-7)
  • And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
  • In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
  • ...And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done...
  • ...He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
  • The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen. (Revelation 22:1,2,6,20,21)
News Review - 3 Sep 2021
God's Fury Poured Out

Defeat in Afghanistan and hurricanes, drought, floods and fire at home.
Is this the beginning of…

“God’s Fury Poured Out?”

“And I will break the pride of your power; and I will make your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass: And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.” (Leviticus 26:19-20)

In my previous News Review, we looked at the situation in Afghanistan. It was not difficult to see that the pride of America’s power is being shattered!

Who Defeated The Mighty USA?

“Afghanistan has over 18,000 villages, where 76% of the population live, which have never really been governed by anyone. Among the urban population, numerous opinion polls over the past two decades show Taliban support hovering below 14%. This is why even in Pushtun-majority towns and cities, no one turned up to welcome the Taliban forces. Women dusted off their old burqas or stayed home while men started to grow longer beards. Yet in urban areas, millions of Afghans have had a taste of a different way of life and are unlikely to put the clock back 1,400 years as the Taliban demand.

Because without their cooperation nothing resembling state structures could be built, the Taliban won’t find it easy to line them up with the usual terror tactics. In other words, Taliban are doomed to fail, leaving Afghanistan as an ungoverned land. And that is bad news for the whole world as an ungoverned land is ideal location for terrorist groups of all denominations.” (aawsat.com)

ISIS-K To Topple The “Liberal” Taliban?

“Armed forces minister James Heappey described the terror threat of the so-called Islamic State in Afghanistan, ISIS-K. ISIS-K, a local branch of the notorious global terrorism organisation, is amassing thousands of fighters to topple the ‘liberal’ Taliban - and they will target Westerners to do it. Founded in 2015, ISIS-K’s aim is to establish an Islamic caliphate across Khorasan - a region covering Pakistan and Afghanistan and parts of central Asia. Its fighters - who view the Taliban as too liberal - are thought to number up to 2,200, but this figure could rise dramatically amid political uncertainty.” (express.co.uk)

Veni, Vidi, Vici

(Latin - attributed to Julius Caesar following his victory at the Battle of Zela)

I came, I saw, I conquered!

That’s what was supposed to happen in Afghanistan. Instead, today it should read, “I came, I saw, I was conquered”! In reality, Afghanistan is returning rapidly to what it was 20 years ago – ungovernable! The big difference is that they are now armed with all the latest US military hardware available today!

“Iran is set to hold a series of war drills with Russia and China, as the hardline regime celebrates the United States’ bungled evacuation in Afghanistan and boosts its enrichment of nuclear weapons-grade uranium to historically high levels. Iran, Russia, and China have all expressed an interest in replacing the United States as a powerbroker in the nation and working with the newly installed Taliban government. Iranian and Russian leaders announced on Monday that their countries, along with China, will hold joint maritime war exercises in the Persian Gulf later this year or early in 2022, according to Iran’s state-controlled media. The countries said they will focus on ‘shipping security and combating piracy’ as the United States reduces its military footprint in the region following its marred withdrawal from Afghanistan. Iran, Russia, and China have all expressed an interest in replacing the United States as a powerbroker in the nation and working with the newly installed Taliban government.” (freebeacon.com)

US Allies Under Threat

Those nations that rely on US protection – Europe, Israel, Ukraine and Taiwan are going to have to re-evaluate their position in a rapidly changing geopolitical world.

“The more fundamental problem is that the US decision to leave Afghanistan is part of an American strategy to reduce its role as an international superpower, especially in the Middle East. This may encourage radical Islamic elements such as Iran, al-Qaeda, ISIS, and elements of the Muslim Brotherhood, including Hamas, to challenge the US and its allies, including Israel. The essential lesson for Israel is that with all the importance of Israel’s strategic partnership with the US, Israel must recognize the limitations of a superpower’s backing and adhere closely to the principle that Israel will defend itself on its own.” (jcpa.org)

The “Pride of your power” - Broken
what about the second half of the verse…
“Your heaven as iron, and your earth as brass?”

The weather around the world is causing many problems. In the US, the Western area is in a serious drought situation, along with huge wildfires, while the Eastern half of the nation has a hurricane, along with huge storms causing serious damage and flooding.

US Plagued By Wild Weather

Two Weeks Ago - Tropical Storm Henri

“Severe weather is gripping the US from fierce fires engulfing California on the West Coast to Tropical Storm Henri battering the East Coast. A state of emergency was declared in parts of New York state, with high winds, flash flooding and torrential rain battering New York. Millions more were braced for 70mph gusts, tree falls and power cuts as the storm, formerly a hurricane, headed north yesterday.

The National Hurricane Centre also warned of storm surges when sea waters are pushed up to five feet above their normal level. Around 400 flights were cancelled and some rail services cut or suspended. Roads and subways were deluged, leaving drivers ploughing through deep water. On Saturday, Central Park set a record for the amount of rain in an hour 1.94 inches, beating the previous high of 1.76 inches in 2004.

At least 500 National Guard troops were set to be deployed yesterday while the State Police had 1,000 staff on duty. Governors in neighbouring Massachusetts and Connecticut also called in the National Guard to help deal with the rescue effort and clean-up operation. Flash flooding also killed 10 people in the southern state of Tennessee on Saturday.

Meanwhile, fires continue to ravage the drought-hit West. The Dixie Fire, the second biggest on record, has already wiped out the historic town of Greenville and now threatens thousands of homes north-east of San Francisco.

Currently, 83 large fires and complexes have burned 2.5 million acres.
To date 647 wildfires have burned 4,879,574 acres in the United States.” (nifc.gov)

Experts fear tinderbox conditions mean California’s record-setting 2021 wildfire season could run into December. Nearly 1.5 million acres of land have been destroyed this year. Bill Deverell, a history professor at University of Southern California, said: ‘The suggestion of patterns across the last two decades in the West is deeply unsettling: hotter, bigger, more fires’.” (express.co.uk)

Now - Utter Devastation Of New Orleans

“Hurricane IDA has battered the US state of Louisiana, with a ‘major disaster’ declared in the US state. Hurricane Ida initially brought 150 mph winds when it first struck Louisiana. One death has been reported so far due to a tree falling on a house near the Baton Rouge area. The storm’s path has continued to move northwards, with the system hitting New Orleans today. The US city has been left without power due to the hurricane, with only generators working. US President, Joe Biden, has said restoring power could take weeks.” (express.co.uk)

Next: Food Shortages?

At this moment, every square inch of California is in a state of drought, and that is a huge problem because it produces about a third of our vegetables and about two-thirds of our fruits and nuts. The USDA has released some new numbers that are absolutely staggering. The following are exact quotes that come directly from that document…

  • “Approximately 84 percent of barley production is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 36 percent of corn production is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 31 percent of soybean production is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 86 percent of sunflower production is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 99 percent of durum wheat production is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 99 percent of spring wheat production is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 30 percent of winter wheat production is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 36 percent of hay acreage production is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 64 percent of alfalfa acreage production is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 44 percent of the hog inventory is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 32 percent of the cattle inventory is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 48 percent of the milk cow inventory is within an area experiencing drought.”
  • “Approximately 53 percent of the sheep inventory is within an area experiencing drought.”

We have never seen anything quite like this.(usda.gov)

Short on food? Go buy on the World Market.

But there is a problem. Other big producers are starting to ban exports.

“In a world plagued by a pandemic, some stories get left behind. One that has escaped headlines, probably understandably, is the Kazakh government’s new six-month ban on exporting food for livestock, insisting produce stay at home. The reason for this intervention, which has come after the resignation of an agriculture minister and against the wishes of some farmers and exporters, is a severe drought in much of the west of the country. Following on from a dry winter, it has lasted for months and already inflicted great damage to pastures, the livestock depending on them, and the communities who, in turn, need the livestock.

Of course, Kazakhstan is not alone. In neighboring Kyrgyzstan, for instance, in some areas farmers face the loss of their crops due to harsh conditions. There, agriculture workers have started demanding that the government keep at home not fodder but something even more essential: water. Until now, such calls have been resisted by the government. If Kyrgyzstan were to cut off water exports to other countries, Kazakhstan would be severely affected.

In general, all of Central Asia is currently under intense pressure not only from the effects of the Covid pandemic, but also from unusual heat and water scarcity.

Yet even disregarding such aspects, we can also see Central Asia as a particularly concise example of problems that the world is facing as a whole. Kazakhstan may seem remote to many, but it may also be a harbinger of things to come – or rather, things that are already nearly upon us.(rt.com)

Supply Of Meat From Mexico Under Threat

“A lot of people didn’t think that it would ever come to this. Many simply assumed that conditions would return to ‘normal’ eventually and that everything would work out just fine somehow. But here in the middle of 2021, everything is definitely not fine. In fact, cows are literally dropping dead from starvation in northern Mexico in very large numbers. This isn’t the sort of thing that is supposed to happen in North America. If you don’t think that this will affect us here in the United States, you are wrong. Each year, the US usually imports about 500 million pounds of beef from Mexico. So get ready to pay much more for beef at the grocery store. Sadly, NBC News is telling us that the drought in Mexico ‘looks set to worsen in coming weeks’… Meanwhile, we are dealing with a historic drought of our own in the western third of the nation.(newstarget.com)

Snow In South America

“The average temperature of planet Earth is cooling, not warming — and if the ‘climate sciences’ hadn’t been so utterly corrupted by the powers that be, this fact would be openly reported on, known by all, and freely discussed. A severe winter storm has delivered high winds and blizzards to the higher elevations of Argentina over the weekend. As a result, many regions have been put on ‘heavy snowfall’ alerts, and many more roads and passes have been blocked. The cold is set to further ravage already decimated crops.

And the story is similar in neighboring Brazil, too. After enduring the worst drought in nearly a century followed by prolonged bouts of record-breaking cold temperatures, areas within Brazil’s farming belt are braced for further adversity as the La Niña weather phenomenon threatens to bring more adverse conditions later this year, reports ft.com.

Brazil is an agricultural powerhouse and a leading exporter of commodities including corn, sugar, orange juice and meat, but this year’s weather disruptions have led to soaring prices for coffee and sugar on international markets while giving bullish corn traders further fuel, continues the ft.com article… initial estimates of production losses for next year’s crop could be 50 per cent of previous forecasts, pushing up prices.

Planet Earth is cooling in line with the intensifying Grand Solar Minimum, and in a society where truth is censored and lies aligning with totalitarian agendas are perpetuated, don’t expect your nation’s government to warn you of this impending reality anytime soon — it is not in their best interest to have an informed public.” (electroverse.net)

Weather-Related Challenges In Europe

“As reported by thegrocer.co.uk, heavy rain and hail coupled with unseasonably low temperatures have hit harvests and yields across cereal and potato crops, too. In fact, a similar story is being reported across much of Europe. …This spells bad news for feed producers in particular: ‘After supply chain disruptions and raw material unavailability, now weather-related challenges in Europe will most likely affect this year’s crop quantity and quality. Cold temperatures, heatwaves, tornadoes, and hailstorms are expected to adversely affect the quality and quantity of the harvest.’ The torrential rains in France and Germany, for example, ‘have darkened Central and Western farmers’ prospects … while the quantity may be there, the quality of wheat and corn is under question.’ Europe’s woes are compounding the misery witnessed across the globe this year: from South America to China, from South Africa to the US, crops are being utterly decimated by inclement weather – usually cold related – and our global stores are running dangerously low.” (electroverse.net)

Is It Global Warming, Climate Change – Or Is There Another Issue?

Many experts say that man is causing the problem,

AND THEY ARE RIGHT, BUT FOR THE WRONG REASON!

God is weaponising the weather to punish His people.

He controls the weather!

Note the words used in Leviticus 26:19 - “I WILL MAKE YOUR HEAVEN AS IRON, and your earth as brass… and as a result… “And your strength shall be spent in vain: for your land shall not yield her increase, neither shall the trees of the land yield their fruits.” (Leviticus 26:19-20)

Can we see this happening in the Western US? Water in short supply, wildfires, new season crops not planted, other crops destroyed, searing heat - while the Eastern half of the country is having floods.

Around the world, the weather is going wild. Some, as in the Western US, are having drought, while others are having floods. All this is affecting the world’s food supply.

The “Perfect Storm” Is Brewing

God makes it very clear that He is in control!

And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

Very expensive food!

“A measure of wheat for a penny.” (Revelation 6:6)

A day’s supply of food for a day’s wages!

And also I have withholden the rain from you, when there were yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon it rained not withered.

So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water; but they were not satisfied: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

I have smitten you with blasting [as a result of drought] and mildew: [as a result of floods] when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm devoured them: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD.

Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel: and because I will do this unto thee…

PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD, O ISRAEL.” (Amos 4:6-12)

A Message To Israel At The End Of This Age!

Destruction comes; They will seek peace, but there shall be none.

DISASTER WILL COME UPON DISASTER,

And rumor will be upon rumor.

Then they will seek a vision from a prophet; But the law will perish from the priest, And counsel from the elders.

The king will mourn, The prince will be clothed with desolation,

And the hands of the common people will tremble. I will do to them according to their way, And according to what they deserve I will judge them; Then they shall know that I am the LORD!” (Ezekiel 7:25–27, NKJV)

“THE TIME HAS COME FOR EVERY PROPHECY TO BE FULFILLED!

There will be no more false visions and flattering predictions in Israel.

FOR I AM THE ETERNAL!

IF I SAY IT, IT WILL HAPPEN.

There will be no more delays, you rebels of Israel.

I will fulfil my threat of destruction in your own lifetime.

I, the Eternal, have spoken!(Ezekiel 12:22-25, NLT)

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!

Listen to Me, You who know righteousness, You people in whose heart is My Law: …I have put My words in your mouth, I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, That I may plant the heavens, Lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, “you are My people” (Isaiah 51:7,16)
