Tuesday 12/10/19 Jeremiah 50:8 – 50:32


– [Narrator] Welcome to the
Shepherd’s Chapel Network Family Bible Study Hour
with Pastor Arnold Murray. Wisdom is understanding
God’s word. Pastor Murray’s unique
teaching approach brings God’s word
alive with meaning as he takes you on a
chapter by chapter, verse by verse study of God’s
letter to you, the Bible. And now here is
Pastor Arnold Murray. – Good day to you,
God bless you say. Welcome to the
Shepherd’s Chapel. Welcome to this family
Bible study hour. Back in our father’s word. The book of Jeremiah,
chapter 50, verse eight. We’re gonna pick it up there. God is discussing what
he has against Babylon. Babylon, of course, is confusion and probably you could
base it on the scripture that states God is not
the author of confusion or babble but of peace. So therefore, when
anything is confusing, it’s not really of your father or you’re not grasping
the base understanding of a scripture for he
is that author of peace and he always brings that peace. Naturally, as you heard
me say many times, Babylon fell to Nebuchadnezzar and that is to say
Nebuchadnezzar, when he was king
of Babylon, fell to the Medes and the
Persians which is what? That’s Iraq and Iran of today. But that’s not what
it is spiritually. Spiritually, the king of Babylon in the book of
Revelation is none other than the false Christ
himself, to deceive people and God is putting together
in the future sense, his own people, God’s elect, that will stand
against that confusion which is called babble
or the false messiah. Having said that, chapter 50
of the great book of Jeremiah and the 50th prophecy
brought forth by him. We pick it up in verse
eight and it reads. Remove out of the
midst of Babylon. Come out of confusion and go forth out of the
land of the Chaldeans. You stay away from the babble. And be as the he goats
before the flocks. You know what they did? They pranced and they led. In other words,
you have the word. You get out there and lead
the children out of confusion. Out of babble, and give
them the real word of God whereby they are strengthened
and upheld by it. Verse nine, God speaking,
listen carefully. For lo, I will raise
and cause to come up against Babylon an
assembly of great nations from the north
country and they shall set themselves in
array against her. From thence she shall be taken. Their arrows shall be as
of a mighty expert man. None shall return in vain. Why, because the
arrows themselves come from the mouth of
almighty God through the son. That is to say the
Holy Spirit speaking through God’s elect when
they’re delivered up. Probably if we were to
go to Isaiah chapter 13 and I were to read to you
verses three, four, and five, maybe you would get
a little better look at this spiritually so
you’re not gonna have it but I’m gonna go to
Isaiah chapter 13. I’m gonna pick it
up with verse three. Same subject concerning Babylon. Listen carefully. I have commanded
my sanctified ones. Do you know who that is? That’s God’s elect. I have also called my
mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice
in my highness. That is to say that
love almighty God. That’s his election. And even those that
are already the remnant that’s back with him again. Verse four, the noise of a
multitude in the mountains, like as a great people,
a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of
nations gathered together. The Lord of hosts mustereth
the host of the battle. He brings it together. Verse five to complete. They come from a far country
and from the end of heaven. That’s both on earth
and from heaven, God’s last final army when
his wrath is poured out. Even the Lord, he’s with them, and the weapons
are his indignation to destroy the whole land. Babylon. Our heavenly father
intends to destroy it. As a matter of fact, when
you read the 38th chapter and 39th chapter of Ezekiel
concerning the battle of Hamon Gog which is going
against that land of Gog, Edom, as we studied
in a prior lecture, then God himself performs
that war by himself. That’s why he says
I’m with them. But he also utilizes his elect to shoot those arrows. That’s why you put on, it’s war and that’s why you must put
on the full gospel armor, spiritually speaking
now, whereby you are able to do what? Ephesians chapter five. Stand against the
fiery darts of Satan. Your armor sheds those darts. They have no effect on you. When you’re in part
of this service that God puts together to
destroy babble, confusion. Verse 10, returning
to chapter 50 and we pick it up with verse 10. And Chaldea, that’s Babylon,
it has five dialects of it, shall be a spoil. All that spoil her shall be
satisfied, saith the Lord. It’s the day of vengeance. Verse 11. Because you were glad,
because you rejoiced, oh ye destroyers
of mine heritage, because ye are grown fat
as the heifers at grass and bellow as bulls. You are sure happy
riding it over my people thinking you’re getting
away with something. Even atheistic,
communistic ventures and people that like to
tear down the freedoms of people and to
take what they have to give to those that don’t. God’s not with that. He’s against it. It makes him very
unhappy and you’re never going to receive his blessings
under those conditions. Verse 12. Your mother shall
be sore confounded. She that bare you
shall be ashamed and behold, the
hindermost of the nations shall be a wilderness, a
dry land, and a desert. And certainly, the
devourer is out there today and the swarmers are swarming. The desert is a hot place. 13. Because of the wrath of
the Lord, it shall not be inhabited but it
shall be wholly desolate. Why, because the
desolator’s going to come and he’s going to end. Every one that goeth by
Babylon shall be astonished and hiss at all her plagues. Is this the great Babylon? What did God say in
Revelation chapter 18? Double to her her double. Give her what she’s
got coming to her. That old heifer Babylon and
certainly she will get it. And do you know, a barren,
well who is Babylon? What country is that? It’s a condition of mind. It is the confused
babble people. That is to say people
that babble or confuse and they ride on that
one world beast system thinking it is Christ returned and that they’re heaven
bound and they’re right in the sack with Satan. What a terrible, do
you know why they get in that position? ‘Cause they haven’t
read God’s word. He sent a letter explaining
exactly how it’s going down whereby you would not
be taken in nor confused because the day of
God’s wrath is coming and that puts a time sequence
on this particular chapter. If you don’t know when the
seven vials are poured out, you’re in a heap of hurt. In the great book of
Revelation beginning with chapter 16 forward. Verse 14. Put yourselves in
array against Babylon. You put on that gospel armor. Roundabout, all ye that
bend the bow, shoot at her. Spare no arrows for she hath
sinned against the Lord. And you know, what greater
sin or blasphemy is there than one sitting
in the seat of God claiming to be God
and misleading the
very children of God, children that God loves? And what are these
arrows you’re shooting? It’s when you allow the Holy
Spirit to speak through you. A sword coming from
the mouth of Christ that cuts both ways,
a double edged sword as it is written in Revelation
chapter one, 15 and 16. That day is coming. And when God puts together his
separated ones, his election, he knows he can count on ’em. They’re well tested
in battle spiritually. They have no problems. They proved themselves. I could even say at the
chance of confusing some, even in the first earth age. That’s when they were chosen. Verse 15. Shout against her roundabout. She hath given her hand,
her foundations are fallen. Her walls are thrown down
for it is the vengeance of the Lord. Take vengeance upon her. As she hath done, do unto her. You give her her double. And that’s as it is written in
the great book of Revelation. And that is when who’s
going to do that? Well, the set aside
ones God put together. He told you about it in
Isaiah chapter 13 there, verses three through five. His sanctified ones. That doesn’t mean
they’re real special. It means they can cut it. It means they’re children
of the living God that know Satan’s
a fake and a fraud and that we have power over him and they don’t mind executing, practicing that power
and that authority. They lead and they shoot
those arrows of truth that wound Satan himself. That is the voice
of almighty God speaking through his election. Verse 16. Cut off the sower from Babylon. Don’t let those wicked
seeds be planted anymore in the minds of my children. And him that handle the
sickle in the time of harvest, don’t let him harvest my crop. That is to say my children. For fear of the
oppressing sword, they shall turn every
one to his people and they shall flee every
one to his own land. When they finally wake
up and find they’re in the sack with
antichrist, many of ’em will even pray for the
mountains to fall on ’em as it’s written in
Revelation chapter nine. Why, because they’re ashamed. They were really
pretty good, tried to be pretty good Christians. They sat in the church
pew and were spoonfed. Unfortunately not the
full word of God chapter by chapter and verse
by verse but by a bunch of one verse charlies that never quite got around to
teaching the plan of God whereby they’re deceived. And that is sad,
that is truly sad that God’s word, when he
sent this letter of warning and you have people that
are ignorant enough, they would tell you well, you’re reading from the Old
Testament, that’s past history. It’s prophecy,
prophecy is future. The history happened so
that you can look at it. 1 Corinthians
chapter 10, verse 10. These things happened
as an example so you would know what would befall
you at the end of the world. Now it doesn’t
take, you don’t have to be the sharpest
knife in the drawer to understand that, a child can, but some people are
a little stubborn because they’ve listened to man and his traditions. You don’t have to
have God’s word. You’re gonna be gone. If you will let a
man tell you that, you’re in a heap
of hurt because God wants to talk to you
through his word. If you don’t have time
to listen to your father, you’re in a heap of hurt. 17. Israel is a scattered sheep. The lions have driven him away. First the king of
Assyria hath devoured him and last, this Nebuchadrezzar,
I’ll say Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, hath
broken his bones. In other words, the Assyrian
took the 10 northern tribes captive in about 600 BC. Nebuchadnezzar took
Judah and his buddy into captivity about
400 BC and so it was that they were, from
that they scattered and unfortunately, God
didn’t lose anybody. He promised Abraham
that they would become as numerous as
the stars of heaven and the sands of the sea and God knows where every
last one of them are but unfortunately,
the sheep have followed the wrong shepherds, the shepherds that
God warned you about in the last chapter. The shepherds that will
mislead if you’re not careful. When God sends you a letter
that is your governor actually, letting you know what
is true and what is not if you’ll just take
the time to read it. He said they’re
going into captivity and they’re going
to be scattered. God hasn’t lost them,
he knows where they are. It is no accident that this
great nation is blessed. They’re part of the
scattering and that’s why it’s called and was
founded as a Christian nation, a nation under God. Verse 18. Therefore thus saith
the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel,
behold, or you look here, I will punish the king
of Babylon and his land as I have punished
the king of Assyria. And so it’s going to be. It shall come to pass
even in the future sense. Michael and his angels,
they lock that rascal, as it is written in
Revelation chapter 20, in the pit, the abyss, and
they put a lock upon him that not even his evil
spirit can go past until the end of the millennium. Then he’s released
a short season to test those people
that we’ve had to teach during the Lord’s day, that’s to say the millennium. God’s going to see
that he’s punished because after that,
after that short season, he has a long trip
into the lake of fire. I’m talking about Satan. Verse 19. And I will bring Israel
again to his habitation and he shall feed on Carmel,
that means a pleasant place, paradise, and Bashan,
that means huge, the best of everything, blessed, and his soul shall be satisfied upon Mount Ephraim and Gilead. And so it is that
through the millennium, the forgetful one, which
is what that word means, has to remember who he is
even though he was scattered. The larger of the 10 tribes. Verse 20. In those days and in that
time, saith the Lord, the iniquity, that’s to
say the sin, of Israel shall be sought for, the
equity that is to say, the sin, and there shall be none
and the sins of Judah and they shall
not be found, why? Why won’t their sins be found? For I will pardon
them whom I reserve. Well what does he mean reserve? Means save. Those that have
managed to conquer and bring themselves into
the position of salvation. God always keeps his word. God always keeps his promises. That’s why especially
in these times, you want to listen
to him and you want to follow his
orders, his decree. This is why he said hey,
that’s the way it happened many years ago and
as he would say in the first chapter of the
great book of Ecclesiastes, there’s nothing
new under the sun. What’s wrong with you? It’s all happened before and
it’s going to happen again. All you have to do is look
how it happened before because what goes
around comes around and then to explain it
to the dense up here, he said it’s just like the
rain that runs down the river. It goes out into the
Gulf of Mexico, my word, the water, and the temperature brings the humidity
back up into the clouds and it goes back up and it rains and here comes the same water
back down the river again. He uses that as an example
to show you the flow, a flow chart of how
prophecy and history are extremely
important, they mesh. It’s God’s way of saying
hey, it’s no biggie. Look what happened then. That’s how it’s
gonna be at the end. So therefore, you want
to take part in Bashan. You want to take part in Carmel. That means a park, a
paradise, a beautiful place. Verse 20 to continue. In those days and in that
time, saith the Lord. Oh we got that. Okay, let’s go with the
next verse, verse 21. Go up against the
land of Merathaim, even against it, and
against the inhabitants of Pekod, Pekod means judgment
or it means visitation. That’s the visitation of who? Well, of almighty God of course. Pekod, waste and utterly
destroy after them saith the Lord. And so it is. This one means double rebellion. Go up against it,
I’m gonna visit it is what he’s saying
by those Hebrew names. And my visitation will
not be too sweet for it. Verse 22, a sound of
battle is in the land and of great destruction. 23, how is the hammer, that’s
to say Satan, antichrist, how is the hammer of the whole
earth cut asunder and broken. God does it, okay? That’s no problem. How is Babylon become a
desolation among the nations. It’s really quite simple because when the Lord of
lords and King of kings appears, there will
be no other nation, there will be no other
country other than that that falls under the King
of kings and Lord of lords. There’s one nation under God. Forever. 24. I have laid a snare for thee
and thou art also taken, oh Babylon, and
thou wast not aware. Thou art found and also caught because thou hast
striven against the Lord. You think you are getting away
with things and you’re not. You think you’re getting away but do you understand what
God told Satan, the hammer, in Revelation chapter
nine in this future sense? Hey, you can go down there. I’m gonna let you go. And we’re gonna cast you out. You can go down there. Don’t you dare
try to touch those that have the seal of
God in their foreheads, that means the truth, that
understand all seven seals written in the
book of Revelation. You can’t have them meaning
don’t you dare touch them. He couldn’t anyway. We don’t find him
tempting at all. He said you can even,
don’t kill the others, but you can deceive
them if you so choose. Don’t worry. Satan will choose to do that. But his day, there is
a snare set for him. Do you think he believes it? Of course he doesn’t. And he has every
right, perhaps if you were in his shoes,
in Satan shoes, God only knows you
don’t wanna be in ’em, but if most of the
world was following you, you’d feel pretty
big, wouldn’t you? Because most of the
world does follow Satan. Many of them in ignorance
thinking he’s coming and he’s gonna fly me away. Well, he’s gonna
say that all right but he’s none other than
the false Christ himself. He comes first. The first one taken in the field is taken by the false Christ. Verse 25 to continue. The Lord hath opened his armory and hath brought
forth the weapons, that’s the truth,
of his indignation. That is the word
of God, the truth. For this is the work of
the Lord God of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans. That is to say all seven vials will be poured out upon it. One through seven. One after the other. It is called the wrath of God. And he intends to
bring an end to it. There’s always, you
know, the only way that this can happen
is for Babylon to end and our eternity to begin. What a celebration. What a wonderful time to live. To be a part of the word of God. That is to say, a
part of his army that puts a stop to confusion because the weapons being what? This word. This word is so
powerful that when God gives you a platform
that you can let that word go
around the world, it is the most powerful
weapon in the world. It changes the minds of people. It brings hearts back into
the love of the living God whereby on that day of
visitation which is very soon, they’re not deceived
or played the fool because they love
the living God. Verse 26. Come against her from
the utmost border. Open her storehouses. Cast her up as heaps
and destroy her utterly. Every lie, every deception, let nothing of her be left. No lies, no deceit,
no misleading, no
traditions of men. 27, slay all her bullocks. Any power she might
have, destroy it. Let them go down
to the slaughter. Woe unto them for
their day is come, the time of their visitation. Do you remember what
I said Pekod meant? It means visitation. That’s Pekod. That’s why the name is used. It’s their place, their time, and it’s their
day of visitation. It is the day of the
Lord’s very incentive to bring to pass his
evening to score, his making things right. You see, when you
have this weapon that God brings
forth which is truth, confusion can’t be out
there, that’s babble. If the real truth is
there, it melts that, every lie, every deception. It destroys it utterly and that beautiful truth from
God’s word and God’s love in preparing a place for
his people, his children that love him for an eternity. This is what consummates
the end of this age is the day of vengeance
which is the day of the visitation which is Pekod which means visitation but
it also means judgment, it’s also the day of judgment. Verse 28. The voice of them
that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon to
declare in Zion the vengeance of the Lord our God, the
vengeance of his temple. That is to say the body. 29, call together the
archers against Babylon. All ye that bend the bow, camp against it roundabout. Let none thereof escape. Recompense her
according to her work, according to all
that she hath done. Do unto her for she
hath been proud, that’s Satan’s pride,
against the Lord, against the holy one of Israel. And as it is written
in Revelation chapter
18, verse six, there’s her cup, double it. Give her double what
she’s got coming to her. You see, when our father,
he is long suffering as it’s written
in the great book of 2 Peter chapter three,
verse seven and eight, and he is long suffering,
means he’s got lots of patience and it is his will that
all come to repentance but there does come a time
that that patience runs out and you’re reading
about it right now. This is the day of the Lord. This is the day of his vengeance and the day of their visitation and they certainly
will be visited. This is the time that those
that think there is no God have to wake up and realize
they’re in a heap of hurt. Will it be too late? For some it will be. But for those that love him, we are not to judge or to say. That’s up to our heavenly father and be that as it may. But how precious
it is that when God calls together his archers,
there’s one battle, the battle of (mumbling),
Armageddon better said perhaps, pronounced, in English,
will happen in Jerusalem and the battle of
Hamon Gog, though, will take part, place,
north of us here in America. I think it takes
place in Alaska. I have strong reason
to happen to know that’s where it will be. It will be (mumbling)
coming against us. God will not allow
us to attack them because he’s going
to rain hail stones weighing 180 pounds on them. Well why was he doing that? So they will know he is God,
that there is a God in heaven and that he means what he says
and he says what he means. Verse 30. Therefore shall her young
men fall in the streets and all her men of war shall
be cut off in that day, saith the Lord. What day was that again? The day of God’s vengeance. Who can battle with God? Nobody can. Only a fool would even
attempt to and that’s Satan. He thinks he can. Verse 31. Behold, I am against
thee, oh thou most proud saith the Lord God of hosts, for thy day is come, the
time that I will visit thee. That’s the last draw. That’s the consummation. You might get a
little peek there at the emotions of God. Do you think he isn’t
ready to do that action, to bring it to pass? Of course he is. Again, he’s got lots of patience but he says the day is come, the time that I will visit thee and boy, will they be shocked. Verse 32. And the most proud
shall stumble and fall and none shall raise him up and I will kindle a
fire in his cities and it shall devour
all round about him. And so it is. Our father is very final. Well why would God do this? To protect us. To get this evil
one off our backs. Off the back of his children. Those of God’s elect
don’t have to worry about getting him off their back because we have the
power and authority in the name of Jesus
Christ to order him out and he has to go. On that command. But this is for the
children that are ignorant, simply meaning they
haven’t been taught and that day of his visit
begins the Lord’s day which is a thousand years long. That’s how long
a day is with God and boy, will there be some
fast teaching take place and a lot of people. On that first day,
every knee bows to him. It’s quite easy
to understand why. He’s God. They finally see him
and know for a fact. For the wicked one, the
game is up, it’s over and our father
will have returned. You can look forward to that. He loves you and he wants you
to return that love to him. Let him know today, won’t you? All right, bless your
hearts, you listen a moment, won’t you please? – [Narrator] The Mark
of the Beast on CD is our free introductory
offer to you. What is the mark of the beast? Many false teachers
would have you believe it will be a tattoo
on your forehead or a computer chip
implanted under your skin. It is getting late in the game. You need to know what
the mark of the beast is. As it’s written in Revelation
chapter 13, verse eight, many will be deceived. There is no need for
you to be deceived. Christ said in
Mark 13:23 behold, I have foretold you all things. Jesus indeed told us
how not to be deceived and Pastor Arnold
Murray takes you on a step by step
study of God’s word concerning this critical
subject, the Mark of the Beast. The telephone call is

reverend or denomination or organization. We’re not gonna judge people. We have a judge, it’s our father and boy, he judges closely. You do have the right for
spiritual discernment. Never fail to use it,
it’s a gift from God. Those of you that listen by
shortwave around the world, it’s always a pleasure
hearing from you and your announcer at
the end of the hour will give you our
mailing address. Got a prayer request, let our
father hear from you, okay? Let him know that you love him. It pays great dividends. He blesses you when you do that. And when you mean it from
your heart, let him know. Father, around
the globe we come. We ask that you lead,
guide, direct, father, touch in Yeshua’s precious name. Thank you, father, amen. Okay, and question time. We’re gonna go with
Pam from Georgia. Okay, my mom passed
away November 2011 and I want to ask you
where exactly is she at? I know she loved
Jesus and she used to tell me to look for
her at Jesus’ feet. But now that she is gone,
my faith has been shaken. I’ve always believed in heaven. Well I hope, you
know, your mother would be very
disappointed in you if she felt your
faith was weakened when she’s with the Christ. Have you never read
Luke chapter 16? The parable of the
rich man and Lazarus? Instantly, I mean,
when you’re absent from this body, you’re
present with the Lord. She’s with him and you should
be happy for her for that. It’s driving me crazy
now that I’ve lost her. I just have to know
where exactly is my mama. All of us five kids
are having a hard time. Get into God’s word. Read Ecclesiastes chapter
12, verses six and seven. When this clay pot breaks,
when your mother passed away, instantly, her spirit, which
is to say the intellect of her soul, meaning her
soul, returned to the father and naturally, the
flesh goes back to the dirt from whence it came but we have this
beautiful spiritual body which she is in now. You can be happy for her. You get that family
in the word of God and know where those
that have passed on are. They’re not out here in
some hole in the ground. They’re with the father. If you were to let
this shake your faith, it would hurt her a great deal. You don’t wanna do that. Again, I would recommend
you read Luke 16 and look where Lazarus went. Your mother loved
Jesus, so did he. Look what happened
to him and you’ll see and know where your mother is. Kate from North Carolina. My question is when we
die and our spirit body returns back to the father God, will we be able to remember
the first world age then? Thank you. Most likely. Most likely will because
you have total recall established back again. The only reason
that’s taken away in the flesh body is so that one is truly born innocent to
make his or her mind up whether they’re gonna
love God or Satan. That’s what this is,
a time of testing. Harvey from Georgia. Question please, I know
there will be no burning hell til after the great
white throne judgment. That is correct. Revelation chapter 20. I’m confused about Luke
16, verses 23 and 24. What about the flame the
rich man was experiencing? It was embarrassment and
disappointment and shame that he had been such a fool. It just burned him up. Not literally but spiritually. I mean after all, put
yourself in his place. There is a gulf
here where he cannot cross to Abraham and
those that have succeeded. He’s cast out though
he’s in paradise. Well why is he in paradise? For judgment. We only have one
judge and that’s God. You gotta go where
he is for judge. But he has to wait. But he looks over and
he sees that beggar in the bosom of Abraham
with God’s love, plenty of everything and
here he is over here, he’s got nothing. He’s spoiled, he’s
rich, he’s been used to buying whatever he
wanted, ordering men here, there, and yonder,
and now he’s doomed. That’s what burned him in his
own soul awaiting judgment. That’s hell for a person
that didn’t make it. Not literally, spiritually. Monty from Alabama. I have enjoyed Bible
study with you for a long, okay, thank you. Recently, you stated
that the false Christ would come on a white horse. I don’t understand this because
it contradicts the Bible, Revelation 19:11. Could you explain
this to me please? It’s very good that you
would ask the question because don’t you realize
Satan always mocks or (mumbling) or
pretends to be Christ? And where he is on a white horse is in Revelation chapter
six, verses one and two. It’s the first seal. Now seals are not
a thing of actions. Seals are a thing of
knowledge in your mind and the reason God
makes it the first seal, he wants you to get it
straight in your mind that Satan comes riding
on a white horse also long before the true Christ does to deceive the world into
thinking he is Christ so just because
you see the fake, don’t let that confuse
you because he comes first and literally he comes
at the sixth trump but the reason it is
imperative that God, you know, the difference
is you wanna contrast it back to chapter four
where you see God’s throne and here is this bow around him. It’s a prison of many colors. But it says this one
on this white horse has a bow all right but
the word in the Greek is (speaking in Greek) and it means a cheap
fabric imitation because he himself
is an imitator so you see the
point you’re saying is the difference in
worshiping the true Christ and worshiping the false Christ. You must know the
general order of things that consummate the
end of this age, why? God sent us the letter,
that’s what it’s for. I hope that helps you. The true Christ does
return on a white horse. That isn’t the first
time it’s written. Now that I’m here, let’s
go a little further. The first time this is written
is in Zachariah chapter 10. I’m sorry, chapter
nine, verse nine. That makes it pretty easy
to remember, doesn’t it? It says that he will come
lowly riding on an ass that never had been ridden. That’s the first advent. The second advent is
in the 10th verse. He comes riding on
a white stallion. Not a babe to be crucified but as King of kings
and Lord of lords. And that’s how he comes
back on that white stallion. So it’s good to remember that
and it’s a good question. Steve from California. I love your program. Well thank you. I am brain injured
and I have dementia and I have to have an operation
every four or five years. Is this a curse from the devil? No, no, no, no. Satan doesn’t have
that kind of power. Injuries happen in
more ways than one. I do not know, you
do not establish how your injury came to
pass but it is not a curse. It is a handicap
and God honors that so you’re in our prayers and sometimes it is
hard to remember things. You need you a
Strong’s Concordance where you can look
it up yourself. It makes it real easy if
you can remember one verse in a scripture, you
can usually find it and that helps
dementia considerably but you’re in good shape. Love the Lord and
he will bless you. Roger from Arkansas. What happens to the
flesh body after we all have turned into
one spirit body? Do they fall to
the ground or what? What you have to understand
is at the seventh trump, when we’re all changed
into spiritual bodies, we go into a different dimension and until you take dimensions
into consideration, you’re not going to understand
what happens to the flesh. As a matter of fact,
this may confuse but I’ll risk it. When Christ was crucified
and when he resurrected, the disciples rushed to
a room and were in a room and after he appeared there,
he just appeared inside and then when he left, he
didn’t go through the door, he went right through the wall. Now who was really there? Was Christ there or
was the wall there? Or was Christ in a
different dimension that the wall has no reason
for or anything over? Same way when Peter
was released from jail by an angel, the
chains fell off. Did he put Peter in
a different dimension that the chains and the
gates had no bearing on? You see, you’re dealing
with dimensions there. That’s not a religion. It’s just the fact that,
I’ll go one step further. As a pastor and being
at the bed side of many in the transition of dying,
I have more than once seen someone talk to
and see a loved one that passed away
many years before to come and comfort them
and show them through and though I could not see them, the person in the transition
of dying could see them because they were going
into that dimension. It is the simple way
that God does things so it’s a very clean operation. Different dimension. Jeff from Mississippi. I’ve really learned
a lot studying. My question is if all the races
were made on the sixth day, did they fall and
were they effected by the sin of Adam and
Eve or in other words, did sin on the
eighth day creation effect the sixth day creation? Sin, you know, people sin. If you understand the
Hebrew manuscripts, chapter four, verse
one will stipulate. Satan was the most subtle
of the living beings. That’s what the Hebrew states. Not animals, not
cattle, living beings. That’s people. He’d already caused ’em to sin but before the law comes
into existence, what is sin? I’m just giving you
something to think about. But then after God
created Adam and Eve, eth-ha-Adam on the eighth day, he says don’t partake of the
tree of good and knowledge which means the tree
of life is Christ and the tree of the knowledge
of good and evil is Satan. That became a law and
that’s what they broke. So maybe that’ll help you. Sandra from Virginia. On the program which
aired February the 10th, you said Noah got
drunk on new wine. I haven’t been able
to verify that, wine in Strong’s
31:96 is fermented and new wine, Strong’s
84:92, is freshly squeezed. Would you comment? Thank you. Have you never read Genesis
chapter nine, verse 21? What does it say? Said Noah had the wine. He drank it and he was drunken. Now how, pray tell me
how do you get drunken? By drinking. Wine. It will make you drunk. The word drunk, why don’t
you look it up in the Hebrew? 79:43. It means totally
completely intoxicated. Noah was drunk. It’s real easy to verify that. I even gave you the number. Marcella from California. I understood you
to say we will all be in paradise when
we die regardless of whether we have
been saved or not. Well why? Because you go to be judged. Nobody goes to hell until
after God judges them. That’s just the way it is. That’s why that as
you read in Luke 16, there’s two sides
to paradise, one for the good and
one for the bad. During the millennium,
we will be able to assist our loved ones
who have not been saved to repent and receive
salvation during that time. You can advise them, you
cannot repent for them. You’re talking here about
the millennium chapter of the great book of
Ezekiel chapter 44, verses 20 through 25. If our loved ones
have not repented and received the Lord
during the millennium, then they will be
separated from God’s people at the judgment. God’s people will be in
heaven and the unsaved will go to hell. You got it right,
you’re right on. That’s Revelation
chapter 20 documents it. If they do not take part
in the second resurrection, missed the first, they
don’t make the second, in to the lake, Revelation 20. Joy from Virginia. Is there really a
crystal sea in heaven or are the streets
paved with gold? Please describe. There are many
figures of speech. That is a figure of speech
that means the streets of heaven will be pure. It’s beautiful. And there’s nothing there
that offends and it’s pure. Truth is better than gold. Truth is better
than crystal and it is a place of truth
because God is there. Don from Georgia. Could you answer
a question for me? If we are cremated, how
will the Lord find us? Don, you gotta realize
you have two bodies. The body the Lord finds of
yours is the spiritual body for he is spirit
in that dimension. And as it is written in
Ecclesiastes chapter 12, six and seven, this flesh
body goes back to dirt and Don, I want
you to make a note of 1 Corinthians chapter
15, begin reading with about verse 30. You have two bodies. It is the spiritual
body that God finds, not the flesh necessarily, okay? We’re through with that. It gets old, it withers,
it breaks, it gets sick whereas you have
a spiritual body that never withers,
it doesn’t get old, time means nothing to it. That’s your real
body and that’s home. And that’s being with him. Sharon from Kentucky. Thank you for your
teaching me the truth. You’re so welcome. I’ve been with you,
okay, five years now. Good to have you with us. Did we pick our parents? What tribe are most Americans? Well, of the 10 tribes
that were scattered, most of them are. The house of Israel. And naturally, down
through the years, tribes have intermixed and
of the 10 northern tribes but it’s still all
the house of Israel. The house of Judah is
Judah and the other tribe and some of them have
gone back to Israel at this time. Many of them haven’t. Francis from Oklahoma. Dr. Murray, can you explain
the holy ghost to me? My dad always asked me
if I have the holy ghost. I’ll be looking for your
answer on television. I don’t like to
use the word ghost because the Greek word is pneuma
and it means spirit or air for God is spirit but if you
love the Lord Jesus Christ, you have the Holy
Spirit, he comes into you and you go into him and he
is in you and you are in him and that’s how you
have the Holy Spirit. There are some men
that know not better, that know no better, that will
tell you certain gifts you must have to have
the Holy Spirit. That’s false because many
of us have different gifts and an interpreter,
that’s a gift from God of a person that can
learn multi languages. Multilingual, that
can take God’s word to people that really
need it everywhere. A teacher, pastor, is a
different gift from God but it takes the presence
of the Holy Spirit and if you love the Lord,
you have the spirit. Kay from West Virginia. Will we know when
the two witnesses are prophesying in Israel? Absolutely. When they are killed and
lay in the streets three and a half days,
will we see them? That will no doubt be
broadcast to the whole world and you can rest
assured that in three and a half days, the
Holy Spirit, almighty God through the son, Jesus Christ, will return at
the second advent. They will rise from that street. God is the god, this is
something that Christians really need to be
aware of and you can find this documented
in the last verses of chapter eight, the
great book of St. John. God is not the god of the dead. Who did Lazarus, when
he went to heaven with the rich man, who
did he see in heaven? Abraham. Well I thought Abraham was dead. Well, a lot of
ignorant people do too but God is not the
god of the dead. Abraham is with him, why? Because God is not
the god of the dead. Your flesh body is
not your real body and I wanna be careful
here because some people are a little weak on this. By that I mean
sometimes they want to go home a little soon but you have a far better body,
it’s the spiritual body and I’m gonna stop there. Wilma from Kentucky. You say to be absent
from this body is to be present with the Lord. Where were those
souls that passed from Noah’s age until
Christ ask his blood on the cross for all
who would believe. You say he went to them and many believed and were saved but
where did he go to see them? In paradise. The one we’ve been
talking about in Luke 16. That’s where he was right there. That’s where they
were being held. God is not the god of the dead. They were very much
alive right there. Your documentation for that,
let’s put some legs on it, is 2 Peter, I’m sorry,
1 Peter chapter three, verses 18 and 19, where Christ, when he was crucified,
he went all the way back to the time of Noah
and preached salvation and many of them,
according to chapter four, accepted and were freed. Why, because God
doesn’t play favorites. He did not bring
salvation in Christ only to those that
lived after Christ but all the way back to
those that lived before. He loves all of his children. Rick from Wisconsin. I know I am one of God’s elect. My question is once
we have witnessed against the false Christ
and our time there is finished, do you
think we will be returned to our families? Real quickly, Revelation
chapter two, verse nine, 10, you can only be tried 10
days as an individual. Then you be back home. I’m out of time. Hey, I love you all because
you enjoy God’s word. Most of all, God
loves you for it. Makes his day. And when you make God’s day,
boy, is he gonna make yours. It pleases him so much. We are brought to you by
your tithes and offerings. If we have helped
you, you help us keep coming to you,
won’t you do that? Bless God, he will
always bless you. Most important
though, listen to me, you listen good, you
stay in his word. Every day in his
word is a good day even with trouble. Do you know why? Because Jesus Yeshua,
he is the living word. – [Narrator] Hearing God’s
