Sermon thou knowest not the time of the visitation

  1. 1. Luke 21: 25 – And there shall be signs…and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity…
  2. 2. The Word of God • John 1:1 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. • The Word reveals Christ – The Word is Christ • He is the Word of God • “The Thoughts of God Made Audible”
  3. 3. Old Testament Witnesses II Peter 1:21 – For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.
  4. 4. New Testament Witnesses 1John 1:1 – That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; Romans 1:6 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
  5. 5. Revelation 15:1 – And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, seven angels having the seven last plagues; for in them is filled up the wrath of God.
  6. 6. REVELATION 15:8 Smoke filled the Temple 8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled.
  7. 7. Solomon’s Temple and the Glory of the Lord fills the house II Chronicles 5:2 (I Kings 8:1) 2 Then Solomon assembled the elders of Israel, and all the heads of the tribes, the chief of the fathers of the children of Israel, unto Jerusalem, to bring up the ark of the covenant of the LORD out of the city of David, which is Zion.
  8. 8. I Kings 8:10-11 10 And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD, 11 So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD. Isaiah 4:5 And the LORD will create upon every dwelling place of mount Zion, and upon her assemblies, a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night: for upon all the glory shall be a defence. Glory of the Lord stops priests from ministering
  9. 9. Christ our High Priest Hebrews 7:23-25 23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death: 24 But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
  10. 10. Christ’s Intercession Ends... Revelation 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. Daniel 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
  11. 11. Isaiah 59:16 16 And he (Christ) saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him. 17 For he (Christ) put on righteousness as a breastplate, and an helmet of salvation upon his head; and he put on the garments of vengeance for clothing, and was clad with zeal as a cloak. 18 According to their deeds, accordingly he will repay, fury to his adversaries, recompence to his enemies; to the islands he will repay recompence. “There was No Intercessor”
  12. 12. “My Spirit shall not always strive with Man…” Psalms 119:26 - It is time for thee, LORD, to work: for they have made void thy law. Hebrews 10:26-29 • 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, • 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. • 28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: • 29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?
  13. 13. God’s Seal and his Law Exodus 31: 16,17 …It will be a sign between me and the Israelites forever… Ezekiel 20:11,12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that … I am the LORD that sanctify them.

Ephesians 4:30 And grieve not the Holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
  15. 15. Seal the law among my disciples Mark 3:28,29 – Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme: But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
  16. 16. Daniel 7:23 23 Thus he said, The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom…. Revelation 13:2 And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.Beast =Rome Dragon = Satan Who is the Beast of Revelation?
  17. 17. Mark of the Beast Daniel 7:25 - And he (ROME) shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
  18. 18. A.D. 321 – First Sunday Law • On the Venerable Day of the Sun ["venerabili die Solis"--the sacred day of the Sun] let the magistrates and people residing in cities rest, and let all workshops be closed. …. • The First Sunday Law of Constantine 1, in "Codex Justinianus," lib. 3, tit. 12, 3; trans. in Phillip Schaff "History of the Christian Church," Vol. 3, p. 380.
  19. 19. “Sunday is the mark of our Authority” "Sunday is our mark or authority...the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact." Catholic Record of London, Ontario, September 1,1923. "Of course the Catholic Church claims that the change (Saturday Sabbath to Sunday) was her act...And the act is a mark of her ecclesiastical authority in religious things." H.F. Thomas, Chancellor of Cardinal Gibbons. "Protestants...accept Sunday rather than Saturday as the day for public worship after the Catholic Church made the change...But the Protestant mind does not seem to realize that...In observing the Sunday, they are accepting the authority of the spokesman for the church, the Pope." Our Sunday Visitor, February 15, 1950.
  20. 20. • "Nowhere in the Bible is it stated that worship should be changed from Saturday to Sunday....Now the Church...instituted, by God's authority, Sunday as the day of worship. This same Church, by the same divine authority, taught the doctrine of Purgatory long before the Bible was made. We have, therefore, the same authority for Purgatory as we have for Sunday." Martin J. Scott, Things Catholics Are Asked About, 1927 edition, p. 136. • "Question - Which is the Sabbath day? • "Answer - Saturday is the Sabbath day. • "Question - Why do we observe Sunday instead of Saturday? • "Answer - We observe Sunday instead of Saturday because the Catholic Church, in the Council of Laodicea (A.D. 364), transferred the solemnity from Saturday to Sunday." Peter Geiermann, C.S.S.R., The Convert's Catechism of Catholic Doctrine, p. 50, 3rd edition, 1957.
  21. 21. Rome’s Challenge “The Scripture, as in the written word, the sole standard of appeal,” this was the proclaimed platform of the Reformation and of Protestantism….This was the main issue in the Council of Trent …the Archbishop of Reggio came into the council with substantially the following argument to the party who held for Scripture alone… “Now the Protestants’ claim, that they stand upon the written word only, is not true... PROOF: The written word explicitly enjoins the observance of the seventh day as the Sabbath. They do not observe the seventh day, but reject it. If they do truly hold the Scripture alone as their standard, they would be observing the seventh day … Yet they not only reject the observance of the Sabbath enjoined in the written word, but they have adopted and do practice the observance of Sunday, for which they have only the tradition of the Church. Consequently the claim of ‘Scripture alone as the standard,’ fails;”
  22. 22. Rome admits the Truth • "Sunday is founded, not of scripture, but on tradition, and is distinctly a Catholic institution. As there is no scripture for the transfer of the day of rest from the last to the first day of the week, Protestants ought to keep their Sabbath on Saturday and thus leave Catholics in full possession of Sunday." Catholic Record, September 17, 1893.
  23. 23. What is the Mark of the Beast? Sabbath is Sign (“Mark”) God’s Authority Ezekiel 20:12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them that … I am the LORD that sanctify them. Sunday is a Sign (“Mark”) of Rome(Satan’s) Authority Sunday is our mark or authority...the church is above the Bible, and this transference of Sabbath observance is proof of that fact." Catholic Record of London, Ontario, September 1,1923. Revelation 13 :16 – And he causeth 16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand (By actions), or in their foreheads: (submission with mind)
  24. 24.

  25. 25. Pope invited to U.S. Sept 24, 2015 to address Congress
  26. 26. Address of Senator John F. Kennedy Greater Houston Ministerial Association 1960 • “I believe in an America that is officially neither Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish; where no public official either requests or accepts instructions on public policy from the Pope, the National Council of Churches or any other ecclesiastical source; where no religious body seeks to impose its will directly or indirectly upon the general populace or the public acts of its officials”
