OUR FEBRUARY ISSUE ENDED JUST AFTER BROTHER JACKSON STARTED GIVING A TESTIMONY CONCERNING HIS FIRST TRIP TO ISRAEL, SO WE FEEL THAT BECAUSE SOME MAY FAIL TO GET HOLD OF THE FEBRUARY ISSUE TO READ THE BEGINNING OF THIS TESTIMONY, WE SHOULD START OUT WITH THE BEGINNING OF IT IN THIS ISSUE.
OUR FIRST TRIP TO ISRAEL
In 1968 when we were on a plane going to Israel, we were all sitting in our seats talking about what our expectations were, how we were eager to see the land and travel where the prophets of old had been. In a matter of time there was a gentleman from the back that moved up behind us. He sat down next to us and said, Gentlemen, I do not want to be interrupting your conversation, but I cannot help but notice you are talking about the land of Israel. He let us know he was a Jewish man, a general of the army. He was a commander of one of the armored divisions that chased the Egyptians down through the Sinai. He asked us questions, what we were going for and such. We began to tell him that we were always interested in the land of the prophets, naturally about Jesus Christ, but knowing this man was a Jew, we never pushed anything beyond that. He told us he was a commander of an armored division. He said, For many weeks before the war started, through our intelligence officials, we were made to realize Egypt, Syria, and Jordan, were all planning their sneak attack against us. We knew that we were out-gunned, out-planed, and out-manned. Already at Tel Aviv, we had set in process the making of wooden caskets. We estimated we could possibly have ten thousand casualties as we would try to hold on. Nevertheless once the war started, we never had one civilian casualty. All our casualties were soldiers shot in the line of battle. We were even planning on making Tel Aviv our point of escape to the sea, like it happened in WW2 at Dunkirk where the British escaped. Meaning they felt like they would be outnumbered by planes and tanks and everything, and there would be no way they could hold on. They planned to gradually retreat until they came to Tel Aviv. There, is where they hoped they could send for help from the world, and the world of friendly nations would send ships to get them. The conversation with that man on the plane was enjoyable and enlightening; and then later, when we went to the rabbi’s home and talked to him, we learned much more. He said to us, Gentlemen, in the synagogue where I go, just a day or so before the war started, there was an old Jewish gentleman that stood up in the midst and said, Our nation is going to war, but it will be over in six days. As you know already, in six days it was over and Israel was the victor. I just thought as he was telling of that great feat, That miraculous thing a hundred years ago, would have rocked this entire world. I have heard the old people say after WW1, Out of the American homes went soldiers that fought on foreign fields of battle. Many sons were lost. Every American home had people on their knees praying: God send my son home. It was right to pray like that, but thousands of American boys were left on foreign soil as the battles raged. In America though, a revival broke out, people were repenting and turning to God. God gave America a time of repentance; and gave American people a repentant heart that wanted to serve God. When WW2 was over, again that same feeling hit the American home. That is why, as soon as WW2 was over and things began to close down, God had His anointed man on the scene. In 1948, He turned him loose to fulfill his calling. Out of that, came a revival that God gave America, which has not been seen anything to equal it since then. Why am I saying all of this? I want to show you by these scriptures, that after every episode of God showing His miraculous power of deliverance, it will only remain in the heart of the modern man in whatever hour it may be, only for a short period of time. They see the miracles, then their heart closes up and gets hard again. God is a merciful, very merciful God that gives every person a chance to serve Him. That is why I say, Out on our streets tonight, there is a young society that are just going about their merry way, having little or no thought about what is coming down the road tomorrow. They are exposed to immorality of every sort. They are exposed to all kinds of dope, all kinds of perversions and criminal activity; and in the colleges and institutions of learning, God is being shut out. I do not mean to say these things just to pick on places of education, but you everyone know that what I am saying is a fact. Our places of education have closed their doors to God, and those who would, are told not to mention anything about a sovereign God. Yet when you look at the history of some of these colleges, you find that they were started because of religious purposes. What has happened since then? I can remember when royal families would send their sons and daughters to America to get an education in our colleges. They are not even fit for a dog to get an education in any more. What has become of common sense? God intended for every mortal creature to use a certain amount of common sense. You do not get that from a text book. You were born with the capability of cultivating it and using it, but our society does not want that any more. It is a shame, we have thousands of young people whose lives are being wasted, because they do not know what to look forward to tomorrow. Constructive hope has been taken away from them. Our leadership has closed the doors to all the things that has made our nation great in the past. Somewhere God has all this in His sight. Here of late we hear of Sharon and Bush, Bush and Sharon, Sharon and Bush, Bush and Sharon. I saw a man on Fox News last weeks, that had wrote a book, and had a picture of President Bush on the front of it. It was saying, Bush is a great man of faith. I thought, Oh my: I wish he were. We have become a nation where tragedy could strike and shock thousands of families all of a sudden. Tears are shed at such times, but in a very short order of time hearts are hardened again, just as with Pharaoh in Egypt, that said at one moment, Yes, take your people and get out of here. Then twenty four hours later, his heart was hardened and he was saying, No, you are not going anywhere. That is exactly like the hearts of many Americans in offices of leadership today. I will never forget how President Bush came down and walked the streets amidst all the destruction of 9/11. I thought then, Yes, from one standpoint it takes a man to get out of his suit of clothes, get in blue jeans and get in the midst of all the rubbish with those firemen and rescue people. Then there was the Senate and a lot of leaders standing on the White House steps together, that had just decided, We need to rededicate our hearts to God. I thought, There is Bush crying, senators and congressmen crying, Democrats and Republicans weeping together. They have been shaken. Something startling has caused them to look beyond themselves for a little while. Something like that causes God to be mentioned. It sounded like America was repenting and determining to turn over a new leaf, but no, six months later it was right back in the same old rut. Keep God out of the picture: we don’t need Him. The reason I bring this out like this again, is to try and show you while we are dealing with, Scriptural Diagnosis, that you are looking at overall societies of the world in general, that no matter how God may use one era of time to show His miraculous power and open the eyes of a lot of people, especially young people, it will not be long until society begins to drift right back into that old hardened heart state again. As God looks down upon the leadership of Israel in the hour that is coming up, the way it is written lets us have an insight of what is ahead.
LOOKING AHEAD IN THIS EVIL AGE
In Zechariah 12:8, we find this, “In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem;(not a 24 hour day, but a period of time, meaning, As He turns His attention upon the leadership of Judah, He is going to cause them to have an understanding of what is ahead.) and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them. (9) And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” Let me dramatize it like this, They are going to begin to look at one another and say, Gentlemen, I believe the day is at hand, that we stop playing politics with world leaders and begin to realize, If we will set our eyes on Jerusalem itself and make up our minds we are going to see that Jerusalem is inhabited by only Jewish people, and make that number one, the foremost thing of our actions, we will have God on our side. The way the prophecy goes, God is going to be in it to determine the outcome. Out of that will come such a miraculous display of God’s power in preserving them, the Jewish people are going to rally around that and stand solid. That sets in motion what we have all been talking about, because, naturally the Arab spirit will raise up against the Jewish people trying to make sure the Jews do not get what they are after. That Muslim spirit is going to say, Never will we consent to this! When that Muslim spirit raises up to try to take control of the situation, (I hope there are a thousand Jews listening to me.) God will touch those Israeli leaders in a way they have not been accustomed to. Those Palestinians are going to get real angry; and the whole Arab world is going to say, Never will we allow these Jews to do this! However the minute they say that, I believe with all my heart that God is going touch the heart of those Jewish leaders. They are going to say, We are now going to put God first and Mr. Bush, You can go home and mind your own business. I cannot help but believe we are going to see that Middle East suddenly explode for the glory of God. I just saw this evening on TV, that many of the Jewish people are saying, Let us just give Gaza back to the Palestinians, but that is not the way the prophetic picture goes. That attitude has got to change. When this becomes a picture of number one priority, it is automatically going to force the Jewish people to get ready to defend themselves, defend their existence, and begin to fight for every inch of ground that has been promised to them from centuries back. That will take you to Zephaniah 2:1. Instead of giving up the Gaza strip, it is the number one point they are going to decide, We will take it first and lock it up. The first three verses of this are a warning to the peoples of the world. Notice how simple this warning is. “Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired; Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the Lord come upon you, before the day of the Lord’s anger come upon you. Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, (He is talking to every human soul that has a conscience, that is sincere and wants to be honest in it all.) which have wrought His judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger.” This is God’s warning right now, to the society of the world. Take heed! Get your heart right. It may be that ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger, because, when God gets angry, I want you to know, He will be angry with all that are against His decree. For as God looks upon the objective, it is the fulfillment of all that His anointed prophets have written. Notice, “For Gaza shall be forsaken, (No, Israel is not going to give it back over to the Palestinians to have forever. Instead, they are going to take the whole thing.) and Ashkelon (these are cities of the Philistines in ancient times) a desolation: they shall drive out Ashdod (another ancient place) at the noon day, and Ekron (another ancient place) shall be rooted up.” All this is letting you know, when God turns Israel loose and they start with the army, they are going to lock Gaza up, secure it, and settle that question forever. Now then, listen to this “Woe unto the inhabitants of the sea coast, (That is further on down, next to Egypt.) the nation of the Cherethites! The word of the Lord is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.” In other words, this land will finally become the land of Israel forever. It is the beginning of Israel taking all this promised land that God promised to Abraham. “And the sea coast shall be dwellings and cottages for shepherds, and folds for flocks.” In other words, Jewish immigrants will move in and will say, There, is where I am going to settle. Where the Palestinians once raised goats and such, the Jews are going to come in and start raising their own flocks of animals. “And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; (The tribe of Judah will possess the whole thing.) they shall feed thereupon: in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening: for the Lord their God shall visit them, and turn away their captivity.” This is when God restores back everything He promised. At that time God is looking across the Jordan River to the land now known as Jordan. There never was in ancient times a country called Jordan. It was the land of the Moabites, the Ammonites, the Edomites, and their descendants. Notice what the Lord says in these verses, “I have heard the reproach of Moab, and the revilings of the children of Ammon, whereby they have reproached my people, and magnified themselves against their border. Therefore as I live, saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them.” As you can plainly see, the land of Jordan is eventually destined to become Israel’s. I have studied every prophecy that goes with this whole prophetic picture. It can take you right over to Ezekiel 25. As that Israeli army moves across, let me say this right here, That Israeli army is being led supernaturally at that time, because God is in their midst to guide them. Daniel chapter 12, verse 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.” Every Jew whose name is written in the book will be delivered. Yes, in chapter 12, it gives you a different description of the breakdown of this era of time, but it starts out looking at the end, then goes back and picks up other things and feeds into the end time picture. It starts out when Michael stands up to do what? To defend the Jewish nation, their existence, and their sovereignty. When that time comes, you can rest assured that this world is absolutely going to be shaken. I have been reluctant many times to describe what I saw when I preached the message, “Showdown at Sundown.” I had never had an experience like that in all my years. There is going to be angels seen on the battlefield and they are not going to be seen in fiery chariots as it was back in the book of Kings. They have their way of expressing themselves in a supernatural way in any military type appearance they are involved in. There is going to be angels seen by the enemy, coming at them with all kinds of weaponry. Much of what the angels do will scare the living daylights out of the enemy. In the air, they will see airplanes that never came off an assembly line anywhere. ow many know what I mean when I say that? The reason I say that, is because we have so many modern, educated people today, that cannot see the scriptures to be worth anything. Remember the time when the Syrians came against Israel. It looked dismal on the part of Israel. The prophet was sitting in his back room, and his little servant was watching. You know what the picture shows. Suddenly his servant looked out there and saw all those Syrians everywhere, the Syrian military. He rushed back to the prophet and said, Oh man of God, there are so many of them, what can we do? How many know what the man of God said? It didn’t bother him a bit, he just looked up and said, Father, open the young man’s eyes. 2 Kings 6:17 “And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.”When that young man went back out and looked again, Hallelujah, there are more for us than against us, hallelujah! He saw angels in chariots of fire everywhere. That was back then, but God is still the same. The reason I am bringing it out like this, is because I am sick of this modern world of scientific military technology that can kill people by the billions, but from the political leadership we do not have sense enough to know how to settle the simplest situation. We give up, we give in. Once God starts this push to help Israel regain their land of promise, I tell you brothers and sisters, you had better get your mind in the right place. Yes, you will see it with your own eyes on the TV screen. Thank God for the TV now. From the east to the west, from the north to the south, when the world begins to rejoice and see how that little handful of Jewish people that has been ostracized and neglected for the last fifty some years, while they were just trying to survive, all of a sudden God comes to their defense and gives them victory over their sworn enemies, people the world over are going to be singing a different song. He comes out in front of them and begins to let the supernatural be displayed on the field of battle. Do not tell me that all our modern professors of science and technology are going to ignore the whole thing as though nothing ever happened. It will do them no good to say, God will not do it that way. That is exactly why, when this war starts, which is described in Micah 7, God said, As it was with Israel in the days when they came out of Egypt and took the city of Jericho, God said, Again will I show unto him great and marvelous things. Our world has become so anti-miracle, anti-God, anti everything they cannot understand with their smartness, that their hearts are totally hardened. People will weep and wail because a loved one gets killed or dies, but six months later it is all forgotten, and they are right back about their usual activities remembering nothing. The heart of the modern man is getting harder, harder, and harder all the time. He is losing his sensitivity and God can no longer speak to him. That is why God, in this episode in front of us, will display His mercy as we have described. In those era of time when His mercy is shown, around this globe wherever the young generation is watching, they are going to see the miracle hand of God. I hope there are ten million Muslims listening to me tonight, because their hour is coming. I say to them, You can boast now, but wait until God, the Elohim of Abraham’s hour rises up to show His favor to His chosen people. He has your number. He is coming after you. You are not going to be fighting just a few Jews: you are going to be fighting the God of the Jews. You claim He is your God, but you refer to him by another name. The God of the Jews is not your God. In that day shall Michael stand up and defend every Jew, the Jewish purpose, the Jewish cause; and you Muslims will finally realize He is not your God. What He does for Israel, He is going to do it in a way that you will not have to have a magnifying glass to analyze the situation and say, Is it really that way? It is going to be so visible, and so talked about around this world, that all will be able to see. It takes that, because God has a plan. He has a purpose. It is not that He is going to make them Christians, but He is going to make a bunch of this young, very intelligent people of this generation, that are ready to go all out for dope, stop and think of how many young people in the past forty years have died because of that stuff. Their brains have been burned by dope. Some are in institutions, because their minds have gone berserk. If our government and law officials would have done the dope trade like they did the bootleggers back in the 1930’s, meet them on the highway with shotguns and high powered rifles, it would not have taken very long to get rid of all of it. But no, we have too many low down politicians and law officials that have had their hand under the table all these years while our young people paid the ultimate price. I have read about it, so I am not just standing up here rattling my gums. I have read and heard in the News, how down in Florida, across the Gulf at night, comes these strange boats. When those boats come to land in isolated, remote areas, they are met by certain men. This dope is taken to a little, I will just call it a one horse air strip, where it is put on a single engine plane and transported to certain ones that are waiting for it. Back in WW2, all along the east coast, in remote areas, they built little airstrips where planes could make emergency landings if they needed to. These dope peddlers use these little airstrips to make their drops. One night on the News, in the southern part of the country, they told of one town where there was a certain sheriff that would drive out to this field at night, so I just thought, He knew exactly when to go to that old grown up airstrip. There, he would find that which belonged to him. It was his drop. Then he would hand this out to the distributors. This has gone on in America for the last forty some years. Oh they make a big raid once in awhile, which makes a big show, but does very little to get control of the overall dope problem. May God have mercy on the thousands, even millions of people that have become victimized by the cheap, underhanded tricks that certain law officials have perpetrated. God has a day of reckoning coming to every one of them. Just remember, all of this is building a road and preparing the way for this last week of Daniel to be set in motion. When it is in full swing, God is going to take that Muslim spirit and deal with it in a supernatural, miraculous way, which is the only thing that is going to kill that spirit. You are not going to kill it by normal wars that we fight. It is going to take the miraculous hand of God in a war with a type of people that want to disbelieve such a thing is possible, to deliver the results we are reading about. I have to say, May God, hasten that day, that we can hear the joy bells ringing in heaven as he stretches out His hand to give Israel victory over their enemies. No matter what the disbelievers may say, God is going to have the last word in all of this corruption and violence that is in every nation anymore.
GOD AND ISRAEL MAKE A MAJORITY
My main purpose in what I am saying here today, is to try to show you that societies of the world are getting hard-hearted and evil thinking, just like in the days before the flood of Noah’s day and hour. Last Sunday when I brought out what happened in the Six Day War, how the little nation of Israel, which had not advanced at that time in the military weaponry that she has today, was enabled by the Great Creator to put her enemies to flight in only a few days. I remember talking to the general in 1968 while we were on the plane as we made our first trip to Israel. In his natural life he was the president of a bank. But in his military life he was a general. He was commander of an armored division. He told us this, When the nation of Israel began to realize that Egypt, Jordan, and Syria were all planning to hit us by some sneak attack, we planned and started building ten thousand caskets. We figured we would have that many casualties. But after the war started and the way the Lord guided the army of Israel, she had no civilian casualties at all, it was all military casualties. As I have already said, They had made plans to make Tel Aviv their Dunkirk: they would retreat and hope that they could get friendly nations to send boats to meet them at the water’s edge and rescue them. The point is, what looked like an impossibility for a little nation like Israel, God turned it around and it became one of the greatest victories in the annals of military warfare. I remember I mentioned this last Sunday, it was not the man on the street who said it was a miracle: It was the men in high places, generals, admirals, chief of air force, people like that. For around three days these voices kept sounding, It had to be the hand of God, it was a miracle war, it was impossible for Israel, who was out-manned, out-planed, out-gunned in every way, for her to win the war that fast, but after we got into Jerusalem that day and had the chance to talk to the Jewish rabbi, we told him that we could see it was truly a miracle that God had allowed the children of Israel to gain the victory. We never asked him to tell us anything that we had not already found out. He said, Gentlemen, in the synagogue where I go, on this particular morning there was an old Jewish man that stood up and said, Our nation is going to war but it will be over in six days. The reason I am saying this, is so you will know, after these big men did say it had to be the hand of God, it was a miracle, that what was said did not come from the man on the street: it came from men in the higher echelon of leadership. The reason I use that, is because of the title of my message, “Scriptural Diagnosis.” I want to show you every phase of this end time as things begin to set in to press the world into a situation that looks so frightful and makes some so fearful, there is going to be an act of God in it that will be like we have not seen before. The purpose of preaching it, is to show that God can be recognized for a little while and then forgotten all about. I have enough material here to show you this morning, that the nation I was born in eighty years ago, was not the nation I live in now. It is enough to break your heart to see a nation that was so great, and then to see how it has sold out to the devil. Our politicians make their speeches, how this is the greatest country that exists on earth; and I would have to say back to them, It was the greatest country that ever existed, but you and your kind are selling it down the drain to ruin. You are making it worse every day. I have the proof of that. What I am going to say in this message is not just a bunch of ideas I have concocted in my own mind. I have gathered it all off different News bulletins and other accurate sources. I have the testimony of an FBI agent that was in the White House, he and another FBI man. It was their job to screen all the personnel that came in with Bill Clinton when he took the office of the presidency. All these people he brought with him from Arkansas, this agent said, I saw people come into the White House that normally we would have wrote off. They came in, and we could see right away they were perverts, but the more we tried to give warning and advice, the more we were completely ignored and treated as though we had no voice in the matter. He has written a book, and I have sent to get the book. His life has been threatened for having told some things and put in print what really did take place in the White House. He said, I want to tell the American people, that the American nation they look to today as something great, has been sold out to the enemy. He told some of the episodes that went on in the early days after the Clinton personnel came in. It was their job to screen every individual to determine their loyalty, their faithfulness and so forth. All of those people completely ignored them, made fun of them and did as they pleased. When it came Christmas time and there was always a Christmas tree put up in the White House to respect the birth of Christ, (We know Jesus was not born at that time of year, but nevertheless, the nation had been loyal to that through time.) he said it was open blasphemy. The Christmas tree that was put up, it was not long until all kinds of obscene trinkets and toys that portrayed sexual perversion was hanging on this Christmas tree. I just thought, The American people today, have literally sold themselves down the drain to decay. In this message I want to show you this, When God does strike America with some terrible blow, yes it will bring some tears to some peoples eyes, maybe even to some of the statesmen. You everyone remember the 9/11 incident. A few days after the building had collapsed and they were cleaning up the mess, Bush and all the other politicians in the White House got together and had a meeting. Democrats and Republicans, here they were, standing out in a big crowd declaring how much they reverence the God that has watched over the nation to protect it. I remember that day, how some of those men were standing there with tears in their eyes. They were each one saying how much they believed and trusted in God, but today it is all gone. It is no longer there. The reason I bring this out is to take you back in your thoughts, how this last one hundred years has sent the world on a downward course from which there is no return. Each decade it gets worse, worse, and worse. Each generation of people are born and raised to just float along with the time. The overall world of religion is in apostasy. Listen to them on the radio and television programs. They have just got a religious program, with not much substance. There is nothing that really touches the heart of the sinner at all anymore. It gives the natural person the impression, Oh they really worship God. They do not worship God a bit more than the Jews did back in the days when Christ came walking down the streets of Jerusalem. They accused Him of being everything their sinful minds could think of. No wonder He said in return to that, “You are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father you will do.” That is our religious world today in America. They do not want their right to be able to say just anything they please, taken away from them, but America is no longer a nation that is going to convince anybody we are a religious nation. We are not a religious nation anymore: we have sold out to the devil. When I started this message last Sunday, I gave the testimony, how God had showed me these scriptures in the proper line up. Three years ago Jerusalem began to be the center of Mideast News. It was not long until our president began to take hold of the issue. People write about him being a man of great faith, but I must say again, He is not a man of great faith. He is a man that has a religious idea, because he is behind all this new world order stuff they are trying to put forth. When God does set in motion the next phase of this fulfillment, it is going to be the starting of God’s wrath because the scripture says so. God is going to be angry. This world is going to be shaken, thousands of people from one end of this planet to the other, are going to weep and cry, and some will curse God. The end affect of that is, that it is going to open the hearts of a lot of young people.
A CHANGED NATION
I have said this through the years of time, as we see the young people in America gradually being weaned away from the old moral convictions that America used to go by, like, America is a good nation. It was a nation that had developed some principals of morality and spirituality. We are not saying that everybody in America was a believer, but the faith of the Lord Jesus Christ and the gospel had affected the social structure of America, so that America became known as a nation that was a good nation. That is why for years upon years we were not constantly spending money building penitentiaries and jails. Now, especially the last forty or fifty years, we cannot appropriate money fast enough and build jails fast enough and large enough to meet the need. They are full and running over. Why? Simply because somebody got the smart idea, We don’t need religion in America, we need to be free. They are trying to tell you today that this is a democracy. America was a democracy for a long time, but it is not a democracy any more: I have a new word for it, which is that America is a demon-ocracy. The idea is to take every pervert, every criminal and put them all in one nation, no matter what language you speak, what color your skin, then we want to make man made laws, now you all have to get together and love one another. That is what it is all coming to. When Jesus said in Luke’s gospel and Matthew 24, as it was in the days of Noah, stop and think, ask yourself what was going on in the days of Noah? Not everybody was a pervert. A big percentage of the world was just wrapped up in the material side. That is why Jesus said they were building houses, they were marrying and giving in marriage. But that is not why the flood came. The flood came because of all the perversion that was going on. As God looked down, He said man’s heart is continually evil, because he could not get over wanting to do something different, something worse, all the time. I want to say to all my black brothers, Spanish brothers, Oriental, whatever your racial background might be, America, for the last number of years has had the idea, We are going to show the world how to put a multi-cultural nation together and be an example to the world. To that I say, Then you are going to lead the world right straight down to the jaws of hell. History does not prove that any city, any nation, has ever condoned such a type of purpose and existed to boast about it. Please do not get angry with me, I have been looking at some things and I know what I am talking about. I was watching a program the other night, where all these college students were shown. (I am not talking against a college education.) As I looked out over that vast audience of college students, every race in the world was represented there. I had to think, Yes America, you are trying to show the world we are going to mix them all up and make them one. We are going to come out with polka dot babies, zebra striped babies and who knows what. You might wonder what I am talking about. We have a bunch of perverted leadership in our government today, people in high places of education, and they do not care what language, what race, what background you are. It is not wrong to mix them up, they say. Well I have never said it was a sin to mix up races, but when you begin to perpetrate that kind of outcome, you are headed right down the road to hell. God never intended for it to come to that, even though He knew it would, so He will see that this godless multitude that work against Him get exactly what they deserve. This kind of stuff is exactly what was going on in the days of Noah, when God looked down and said, It is in man’s heart to continually be evil. Mix them up, turn them upside down, wrong side out, and they are still evil. When you get a society like that, they are not worth a dime for anything. When God separated those genes in the loins of Noah, there was a black boy, there was a white boy, there was a mulatto boy. That goes to show, the race had come to that before the flood, but now we have a modern era, so we are going to mix it all together, we are going to take it further still. I say, No, you are not! You are going to wind up in hell with the whole mess. I have preached to more black people than a lot of these black preachers in the states have. I have to ask, What in the world is wrong with you, when you talk about how you have been treated here in America? You ought to be ashamed of yourselves: you will not dare go over there to the black countries where you came from and tell your people over there about the saving grace of God. No you want to stay over here where you can help run the political side of things. I have to say this morning, You do not have too many more years to play this game of hide and seek, and trying to mix it all up. God is coming down the road in a spirit of anger. The end picture is, God said in that day He will slay the wicked with the sword that goes out of His mouth and their dead bodies shall lie from one end of this earth to the other. That tells me God does not like any of this which modern man is trying to do. Now they are able to determine the sex of your baby long before it is born. You want to try to prove to God that He cannot run the show any more. Well He is going to run it, and absolutely start it all over again. I have traveled around this world and preached to different races of people, and I have enjoyed preaching the gospel to them. But I will say this, It makes me sick to see this political side, this intellectual side of things try to run it and mix it all together. That is not going to be what you see in the Millennial reign of Christ. I have said this, When Jesus Christ does come back with His Bride, from glory, the bride He has raptured out of here is going to be made up of the black and white race; and there will be Mexicans and saints from all nations in that bride. When we come back here as the Bride of Christ, black is not going to rule over white, and white is not going to rule over black. God knows how to do things and when God does something He does it the way it is supposed to be. Well Bro. Jackson, I want to be in New York City. Well you are liable to be on the tail end of New Guinea, if you are not more mindful of the purpose of God. I say these things to try to let you know what is ahead. I have enough material here to choke you. I am just trying to show you what America has become. When WW1 was over, we were not a lending institution to the world, but when WW2 was over, we became a lending institution to every nation, our enemies and others alike. We have not stopped giving it away yet, even though we are broke ourselves. (Speaking for the nation) When you read the records what has went on in this nation in the last fifty five years, how we have loaned ti this one and that one, and just keep printing and loaning to the world, I ask the question, Who is going to pay this bill one of these days? Who is going to be behind all of this? The devil has taken the brainworks of America’s leadership and programmed the whole thing to make it look like America owes the world. America does not owe the world one iota of anything, because we did not start their decay. I would like to say this, We no longer have FBI men that are really sold out to guard this nation from terrorists. The FBI and all those that used to be watching over this nation when I was a little boy, men like Melvin Purvis and that type of men, that were known to go after John Dillinger and his kind, are no longer seen among those who are supposed to be watching over us. Our FBI today, cannot go after anything unless they have billions of dollars to spend and throw down the drain. I say that because I have some material to prove to you that for the last fifty years, the FBI institution is no longer an institution that keeps after the dope peddlers, and those kinds of people. They only make their raids once in awhile to make it look good to the public. Behind the scenes there is an undertow, an under-the-table kind of deal. America, you are going down the drain of decay, you are no longer the righteous nation you would like for people to think you are. We are a nation that has changed the meaning of democracy. We have changed freedom of speech, so that anyone can say anything they want to in public. We are a nation that now has changed the freedom of expression, you can act any way you want to and behave yourself in public any way you want to. It was not that way sixty years ago. Well America is no longer seen as a righteous nation. We went into Iraq, to do what? To pay them back for 9/11? You have not paid them back at all. You have only indebted yourself to them. They are going to turn around and spit in your face before this is all over. Watch what I tell you. Those terrorists came over here to take our own planes, cut the pilot’s throat and fly them into those buildings. Over three thousand civilians perished in a day’s time. What did we do? We went into Iraq to try to set up an example of how to rid the world of terrorism. It is a shame our military people have to die to carry out a political idea that in the end is not going to work out like planned. Nevertheless, they try to tell you it is for freedom. It is not for the freedom that God knows. It is a false freedom. Last Sunday night we had passed out of the prophecies of Zechariah. That is where this whole end time picture starts. Jerusalem was to be made a cup of trembling to the nations, that is the Arab world, the Muslims. But to the world about, Jerusalem was to be made a burdensome stone. It also tells in Zechariah 12 how God’s eyes will look down upon the leaders in that day when His eyes shine upon the leadership of Israel. They will then stop playing politics with American presidents, because something is going to come in their hearts and they are going to say, When we see Jerusalem filled with Jewish people and not Arabs, then God is going to be on our side. That is the beginning point. God said, In that day He will make the governors of Judah like a flame of fire. That does not mean they are all going to turn to God and start singing Hallelujah. If you follow the prophecies all the way through, you will see that there are certain stages of this thing. God is doing it to show His miraculous power, His omnisciency, and that He is speaking to the hearts of some innocent people today. Young people today, hardly learn anything, simply because our institutions of learning will not allow it. Therefore when this thing does start, those who have paid attention will know that time is getting short. I am saying this, because some time ago when I commented on these things, I got an e-mail letter from some lady somewhere that asked, Bro. Jackson, are you really saying that all these things are going to come about before the rapture takes place, and that I am going to see this? I never answered her. I just have to say, You just listen and wait. This coming of the Lord that has been preached by modern preachers in these last days is enough to confuse anyone who takes them serious. One day it is one thing, another day it is another thing. It is just like Bro. Nelson was telling me the other day. He said he was talking to someone; and this certain preacher had been saying that God had showed him the antichrist was going to be a Muslim. I would like to look that preacher right in the eye and tell him a thing or two. That preacher has no Bible for anything like that. I have heard that kind of talk ever since WW2 ended. They cannot keep their great revelations in the Bible. They have to run from point to point, from this to that, just for excitement. I want to show you something, but first I will ask you, How much longer will Jerusalem be that cup of trembling? Can this go on another twenty five years? No. It cannot, but I have to say this, It put every Muslim, every Palestinian around this globe with their hearts in tune to one thing. What is it? The Palestinians want the Jews out of there and they want all this land that God gave the seed of Isaac. Well the politicians are trying to say, We are going to divide it up and give half to Jews and half to Palestinians. No, you are not going to do that. The fact that our politicians talk like that lets you know they are not trying to fulfill anything according to the Bible. First off, they have been told the Bible is only a book of myths. I would have to ask, Are you sure about that? How come some of the things the Bible has foretold are already in place? Jesus said As it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of man. What was it like in the days of Noah? Do you think those people back then were doing anything we do not have going on in our generation? Just think about that and then look at America, which was the last Christian nation that has ever been affected by the gospel. Look at what is going on in America even now, from one end to the other. You have same sex marriage, lesbians and gay marriages already. What does that tell you? It tells me this, that the Bible was true and the perpetrators of all this other stuff today are liars. They cannot stop it if their life depended upon it, because it is all right on schedule. Somewhere in the calendar of God, this conflict over Jerusalem and the dividing of the land and tearing down some of these villages that the Jews through the years since the Six Day War have built, all fits right in. The Jewish leadership are wanting to play politics with the whole thing and ask these Jews to leave there. I have to say, That goes completely contrary to the Ezekiel prophecy. The prophecies in Ezekiel said in the last days, I will bring my people back into the land that I gave to their fathers and they will possess the land. They will rebuild the ruined places and the desert will blossom as a rose. I have been there since the Six Day War and I can say this, The last time we were there, they had places in that desert that are irrigated and fulfilling the word of God. They are growing vegetables, peppers, tomatoes, all kinds of things. Some of the villages that had been nothing but waste and ruins, after the Six Day War, they pushed the border back, and Jews from different parts of the world came there because they studied their ancestral background and wanted to be there. They decided, there is where my ancestors lived, and they are from this certain tribe and that is where they went to rebuild the ruined places. Now the politicians want to give some of this land back to the Arabs. That may be the way the political man wants to do it, but in the mind of God that is not the way He is going to do it at all. He has a plan and He has a time, a perfect hour and a way. When God does draw His hand back to strike this thing, this country nor this world will ever return to anything like it was yesterday. In the past number of days, what have we heard? The Israeli military has been in the Gaza strip, ripping and tearing down homes. They found out these homes have become sanctuaries for terrorists that are coming through underground tunnels across the border of Egypt. They have smuggled in weaponry of many kinds. They have torn these houses down. Was the Palestinians able to stop them? No. Somewhere in the great plan of God, when this thing has reached the point where God says, That is it: from now on I am going to show my anger to this world and none will stop me.
GOD’S WRITTEN WORD MUST BE FULFILLED
Now I want you to turn in your Bibles, if you have the Hebrew, you can do that, but if you just have the King James, that is alright. Just listen, because I am going to read this just the way the Hebrew is worded. This 2nd chapter of Zephaniah starts with a special addressing of the people. “Gather yourselves together, even gather together, O nation that has no shame. (In other words, God is actually saying, No matter how small, how great, how innocent, how guiltless you may think you are, there is coming a time God is going to shake this whole world and everybody is going to sit up and take notice.) Before the decree brings forth, before the day passes as the chaff, before the fierce anger of Yahweh (or in the King James, the anger of the Lord) comes upon you, before the day of Yahweh’s anger comes upon you. (Now He says this to the average innocent type person who does not want to be held responsible for anything that is going to take place in the world.) Seek Yahweh, all ye meek of the earth, (That is what God says. I will say this to the young in heart, Don’t get your life sold on the material future and the prosperity you think the future holds for you. I am going to say this, and throughout the rest of the message take notice, because once the table starts turning, once God starts fulfilling these scriptures, you will never see tomorrow as it was yesterday. It is going to be different from then on because God is going to turn things upside down, wrong side out and do a quick work. It is going to bring a lot of people to their knees because it will never go back to the same way is was. That is why it is worded like this.) that have kept His ordinances; (In other words, that would say to anybody that has any kind of religious feelings whatsoever, you have held on to certain beliefs, but now you must), seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be you will be hid in the day of Yahweh’s anger.” This is the next scripture in line following Zechariah 12, because this is how Zechariah 12 begins to take dominion and is fulfilled. Do not just read Zechariah 12 and say, Well the Jews are going to come in and sit down and there it is. In order for Zechariah 12 to be a reality and fulfill the very picture it contains, there has got to be a conflict of engagement first. How many realize that? The first thing is, verse 4, “For Gaza.” (Meaning the Gaza strip, the ancient area of the Philistines back three thousand years ago. They no longer exist as a race of people. These so called Palestinians today, are not of the ancient Philistines. I have enough facts and data that the people today that are now known as Palestinians are descendants from across the river. They have all migrated over here through decades gone by. I am not here to tell you how the process all came about, but I will say this, During the time, say, for a hundred and some years, the Crusaders were in that land of Israel and controlled it, and they kept a lot of the Arabs out. During the Crusader period of that time, they lived the Europeans lifestyle, that of Europe which was gradually introduced to the native people along the sea coast. The trade from Europe was opened up then. Over a period of years there were a few migratory Arabs from across the river, that were allowed to move in to get close to this trade, this change of lifestyle. That was the beginning of the Palestinians gradually coming into the land. Well finally, out of Saudi Arabia the Mohammad followers have now risen and they are now converting their people into vast armies, and they have hit Egypt, they have taken over Saudi Arabia and everything, and when the last great warfare took place between the Crusaders that tried to stay there, and the Muslim armies, the Muslims licked them and drove them out. With the Crusaders gone, that left an element of this Arab bunch from across the river, living there. Then when the Palestinians did determine to come full force, (which was the Arab armies), they moved in to take control of the land, so from then on everything from across the river that wanted to do so, came there. I read one document stating, that from even down in north Africa there were people that migrated along the seat coast, and worked their way toward the land of Israel to settle there. So now in the year 2000 all these people in the land of Israel that claim the land as theirs, are descendants of many years of migration of the people from across the river.
WHO IS GOING TO INHABIT THE LAND GOD GAVE ABRAHAM?
Have any of you ever wondered why Isaiah 49 says what it does? When the time comes, God is going to let Jerusalem, the old city of Jerusalem, which is never going to be half Arab and half Israel, be inhabited by nothing but Jews, because, in the 49th chapter of Isaiah, God says, talking to the land itself, 17Thy children shall make haste; thy destroyers and they that made thee waste shall go forth of thee. 18Lift up thine eyes round about, and behold: all these gather themselves together, and come to thee. As I live, saith the LORD, thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all, as with an ornament, and bind them on thee, as a bride doeth. 19For thy waste and thy desolate places, and the land of thy destruction, shall even now be too narrow by reason of the inhabitants, and they that swallowed thee up shall be far away.(19) For thy waste and thy desolate places, and the land of thy destruction, shall even now be too narrow by reason of the inhabitants, and they that swallowed thee up shall be far away. 18Lift up thine eyes round about, and behold: all these gather themselves together, and come to thee. As I live, saith the LORD, thou shalt surely clothe thee with them all, as with an ornament, and bind them on thee, as a bride doeth. 19For thy waste and thy desolate places, and the land of thy destruction, shall even now be too narrow by reason of the inhabitants, and they that swallowed thee up shall be far away. 20The children which thou shalt have, after thou hast lost the other, shall say again in thine ears, The place is too strait for me: give place to me that I may dwell. In other words God says to the land, I will bring your people from the far ends of the earth, and I will bring them back and establish you as you were before. They will come with such speed and haste that no place can be found for them. They that made thee waste, (Come on you Palestinians, go on and blow, come on you Muslims, tell us what you are going to do to the world.) I am going to tell you what God’s word says He is going to do to you. Oh I know you are telling the world today, from the Philippines, from Indonesia, from India, because that Muslim spirit is in practically every facet of this universe, what you are going to do. They talk big because they have the idea, It is our day now; we are going to rise up and take over and clean this planet of everything else except Muslimism. Well I am going on record to say this, There are no Palestinians, nor any other Muslims that are going to control this world. They may try to think they are going to, but they are not going to be able to pull it off. When they get the God of Israel angry, it is not going to be the God of Mohammad: It is going to be the Elohim or Yahweh, which the Jews worship. When God does get angry, He will be angry for a reason. That is why He speaks like this in the 2nd chapter of Zephaniah. This is actually the beginning of when God is going to show His hand. Right now the president of the United States does not want anybody to stand in the White House and say, Now we ought to turn to the Bible for guidance. He can have his own convictions, but he does not want anybody to tell him that he ought to serve the God that can talk to him. They don’t want a God that will talk to them, but I do. I want to serve a God that can talk to me. I want my God to tell me, You are wrong, when I am wrong; and I will go back and apologize. I believe in a God that can talk to you and He is not just something that you paint on a totem pole and set him up in a park somewhere. He is a God of reality, the God of creation. He is the God that makes that heart beat in your bosom. He is a God that can cause your brain to function and reason and make decisions. I want to go on record as saying this, Every word in this book is true. I have to say, The hour is soon coming when He will fulfill another great portion of what is prophesied in here. I have to agree, that for the past forty some years, it has looked like God had just folded His hands and sat down. Because of that, many of the world leaders think there is no God. They think all the talk about God is all a myth. Well do not be misled: God has absolutely taken His hands off the scene of men’s politics and He knew there were certain things according to His word that had to be fulfilled in the human realm of leadership. He has taken His hands off, just to let the world go and do what He knows they will do. In so doing, all is in place for the final wrap up: every evil thing is in place. The devil thinks he has the whole thing under his control, hook, line, and sinker, but we know he has a rude awakening just before his final maneuver. There is an hour up the road in front of us, that God, even though it looks like He has turned everything loose to go as it will, that He will show His omnipotent power to the entire world. This great country, America, that used to be known by her leaders as a Christian established nation, has now been taken over by a bunch of perverts and politicians. They are nothing better than selfish crooks. Well Bro. Jackson, you talk like you don’t love your country. I love my country, but I don’t have to love the politicians that are responsible for its deterioration. I believe you everyone know what I mean. We used to have men that knew how to live their own lives, they knew how to talk to, and how to lead people. This bunch we have in those offices today, are worse than Al Capone, Bonnie and Clyde and all that former bunch of crooks all put together. They have one aim. They want to be the god of the universe: they want to be the god to every society. Well the God of heaven is not going to let them be that. Up the road somewhere God is absolutely going to say, That is enough: I am calling a halt to the whole thing. That is why it is worded like it is in this scripture. “For Gaza (the Gaza strip) shall be forsaken, (Forsaken of what? Of its inhabitants.) and Ashkelon (All these places in here are ancient Philistine cities that existed three thousand years ago. All of the Philistine cities are mentioned here to show you they will no longer be inhabited by Philistines. Notice Ashkelon will be….) a desolation; they shall drive out Ashdod at noonday, and Ekron shall be rooted up. Woe to the inhabitants of the sea coast; the nation of the Cherethites! (That is just a little further on down the coast toward Egypt.) The word of Yahweh is against you, O Canaan, the land of the Philistines; I will destroy you, that there shall be no inhabitant. And the sea coast shall be pastures, (Pastures for who? Jews. That is what it means. Somewhere scattered over this world, there are still Jews that have never yet returned home. They are just holding back. They don’t want to go back there in all that rotten mess they hear about every day. Nevertheless when this hour comes that it is time for the city of Jerusalem to be inhabited by Jews and not by Palestinians, then as it says in Isaiah 49, they that made thee waste will be far removed. Well Bro. Jackson, where are they going to be removed to? Right back where their ancestors came from. I can almost see the military trucks of Israel lined up. They are going to give those Palestinians their last ultimatum. Now or never. They will be far removed. Because they are not going to stay there and pollute the land and govern the land and dominate it, to make life miserable for God’s people any longer. The sea coast shall be pastures…) with cottages for shepherds and folds for flocks. And the coast shall be for the remnant of the house of Judah; they shall feed their flocks upon them; in the houses of Ashkelon shall they lie down in the evening; for Yahweh their Elohim will visit them, and bring back their captivity.” That means there is one more great episode. When the Six Day War was over, that was the signal for a lot of the Jews still in dispersion out in the world, from Russia, from eastern Europe, from South America and different places, to come home. They came by the hundreds. That still did not bring them all back. There are still many yet to go back to the land of their fathers. They are the descendants of the ancient tribe King David came out of. Jerusalem used to be known as the city of David. He was the one that took it. After he took it, he made it a stronghold for his own household, his in-laws and family structure. That is why it was called the city of David. When you read that 49th chapter of Isaiah, along with the 12th chapter of Zechariah, you learn that God said He would absolutely establish the tents of Judah first, the territory, the agriculture area and all. They already have it, but the world is wanting Judah to give part of that back to the Palestinians, but they are not going to do it when it comes right down to the hour we are looking for. You simply cannot have prophecy going in reverse. He can let it get to a very strategic point, but then He will lay the issue before the eyes of the world and people are going to argue and fuss about it. The hour is coming, when God intends for that city of Jerusalem to be inhabited by Jews, the descendants of King David. They are going to come by the hundreds and thousands. It will not take God ten long years to carry it out. When God does make the move, it is going to be quick and fast moving, but let us go on here. What we have just read, is what God says to you about the Gaza Strip. That does not sound like it is going to take Israel five years to do it. Does it? Look what she has already done in the Gaza Strip. I say to you today, If somebody would just say, Sharon, sit down and shut up, then let God talk to the army. He will put some military concept in the minds of those Jewish generals. I would have to say, In three days time they would put that Gaza Strip under lock and key. They will fulfill everything right in here. Then they cross the river to go after that mess on the other side. Keep in mind, that only politicians today want to recognize King Abdullah. When the Lord comes, there is not going to be any King Abdullah. There never was a king of Jordan in ancient times. It was only those ancient tribes, Moab, Ammon, Edom and so forth. Seeing how this thing goes, God’s eyes are then looking across the river to finish up the clean up. As they take the Gaza Strip, the military eye will then be upon the Jordan on the other side. God is going to make way then, so that all these coming out of Jerusalem can be hauled over there and put out. That will not be the end of the story. God will still have some scores to settle.
WHEN GOD’S PEOPLE ARE ABUSED, HE DOES NOT FORGET ABOUT IT
You will see in the scriptures we are going to read, that God eventually deals to every living person what they have earned. Those who took sides against the children of Israel in bad circumstances, will receive their just reward. In Zephaniah 2:8, we will start reading what God said about Moab and Ammon. “I have heard the reproach of Moab, (the ancient Moabites) and the revilings of the children of Ammon, with which they have reproached my people, (They have talked about them, they have ridiculed them.) and magnified themselves against their border. (Now this is God talking.) Therefore as I live, says Yahweh of hosts, the Elohim of Israel, Surely Moab (This is the end of Jordan as a country.) shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, (In other words, God is going to wipe them off the face of the earth, just like He did Sodom.) a possession of nettles, and salt pits, and a perpetual desolation: (Notice what He says now.) the residue (or remnant) of my people shall make a prey of them, (So they are coming across with their army.) and the remnant of my nation shall inherit them. This shall they have for their pride, because they have reproached and magnified themselves against the people of Yahweh of hosts.” When you go to the book of Obadiah, which is only one chapter, It tells you about the Edomites. I like this. In the book of Obadiah, I believe it was written about seven to eight hundred years before Christ, Obadiah saw in a vision how the Edomites of old would look upon the children of Israel in the days when they would be invaded from the north. That would be the Babylonian armies that carried this out in the sixth century. God prophesied, how the Edomites, would be dealt with because of their attitude toward the children of Israel. (Who are these Edomites? They are the descendants of old Esau, Jacob’s brother who settled in that land.) The prophet has spoken, how the Edomites just stood on the other side when they could see Israel being invaded and would rejoice. They would say tear it to the ground, raze it to the ground. Actually the prophet is telling in advance how these Edomites will act once they see Jerusalem besieged by the Babylonians. Well right here we see how God is going to look back upon them and give them their due reward, if you can call it that. A lot of people will say, Oh that is an old prophecy, Bro. Jackson, could not that have been fulfilled somewhere else already? I have even heard somebody say, Well that has been fulfilled a long time ago. No, it is for the hour we are living in. Do you know why I say that? Turn in your Bible, to the 137th Psalm. Now here you have some Jews along the river Euphrates, right where Baghdad is seen today. Here in that Psalm, the ones that have these Jewish people out there on a work detail along the river bank, which are these Babylonian soldiers; and they are taunting the Jewish laboring people, making fun of them. Come on you Jews, sing us another song of Zion. Come on and entertain us. Can you not see how the enemy would want to do you that way? Here, the Babylonians are taunting the children of Israel in their work details. Finally one of the Jews says, How can we sing the songs of Zion in a strange land? It goes on from that and says, Oh Lord, remember Edom, in the day of Jerusalem. Look how accurate true prophecy is. That is pointing to your day and my day. Do you think God would ignore all of that? In the actual siege, those Edomites and those people on the other side of the river, stood over on the high lands and jumped up and down rejoicing at what was happening to the Jews, saying of their belongings. Tear it to the ground, then this land that is theirs will be ours. That tells you where they came from. How many realize that? I would have to say, Lord, don’t forget Jerusalem. Don’t forget those Edomites. Well, He is not going to forget them. As we go on here. I like this 11th verse. You are living in a day when you are going to see the God of Israel do some things and it is going to be done in a manner that is going to make a lot of people in this world bow their heads in shame. “Yahweh will be terrible to them, for He will famish all the gods of the earth.” In the King James it says, He will famish, dry them up, all the gods, meaning the gods of heathenism. What is God doing? He is angry. He is getting enough of the world in general being against Israel. He is saying, Take your hands off Israel, they are my people, I will place them where I want them, I will do it when I want to, and there is not a thing you Americans can do about it. God has a debt to settle with them. Why is He doing this, Bro. Jackson? Because God is in the beginning process, He is going to soften up some of the mental, racial, social problems that are going on right now in this world we live in. When God’s favor starts to rebuild Israel, giving favor to the Jews, He is going to take His favor off some of these other nations. There is not going to be anything then, like the New World Order that allows you to believe in every god you want to. God is going to destroy, just completely wipe them out. Once His anger starts dealing with the restoration and rebuilding, He is doing it for keeps. He intends to do this in a way that when He has expressed His anger, and it is over, then you are going to know why He did it. From the ends of this earth, no matter what race they have come from, no matter where they have gone to school, their mind’s and their heart’s intents have been changed over night. When they see the children of Israel begin to set in order the restoration and rebuilding of a temple, Israel will not be advertising in papers, we need builders, we need contractors, we need this and that. Tradesmen are going to come by the dozens, volunteering to help with the building. All you have to do is see how it opens up in Isaiah 60. It is setting in motion, the culmination of all these other prophecies, once they have been fulfilled, once God has struck the earth with His anger and put everything in its place, He is then going to start letting the nations function for a short period. When I say that, some might say, oh Bro. Jackson, it sounds like there is going to be a great revival. That just sounds like TBN. There is not going to be any revival at all. How many know what I am talking about? It is how God shows His power, His anger. He is able to speak to the hearts of a few people in this natural, social world structure. Actually it is God showing mercy through His anger. Because when He is putting certain things in their place, it is God’s way of saying, Now I will run the show, now I will do as I please and you will all see it. You must realize, that period will not last too long. I want to show you why. It is because the generations of human beings on this planet now, God can show His wrath, His miraculous power in executing a certain event; and yes, for a short period of time, thousands and thousands will say, Oh it had to be God, oh I want to be on His side. Then, in six months of time the old hearts begins to get hard again. When I read the 60th chapter of Isaiah, and it tells how the sons of strangers shall build up their walls. Notice, “And the sons of strangers shall build up thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee. 11Therefore thy gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings may be brought.” I want to say this loud enough you can all hear me, The sons of strangers will not be some eighty year old Oriental man. How many know what I mean? That is young people from many nations. They are going to various colleges in their own nations, studying electrical engineering, construction, all kinds of such things. Then for a few days they see the hand of God in a miraculous way, with the stroke of His hand, how He drives back the enemy of Israel. He does it to get their attention. Then the word comes, Now the Jews will build the temple to their God. I can see young college students sitting before their TV’s, and it does not matter where they are, Tibet, China, Japan, or where. When they see that event begin to unfold in the Middle East, God is going to do it in a way to make them realize, You whose gods are Buddha, Shinto, and all these others that are not worth anything, you have seen what the God of Israel can do. That is why He said, I will famish. Look up the word famish, and it means dry them up, bankrupt them. Your gods will no longer be worth a dime to you. He will take that young blood, that young energy and here they come. They are going to volunteer and want to help Israel rebuild that temple. That will go on just before that week of time starts. Well Bro. Jackson, are you sure there will be enough time? I want you to know the God I serve is not a God that goes to sleep, nor is He bound by time, except to fulfill His own purpose. In six days time He licked three nations, in 1967. Do you think it is going to take Israel any longer when the time comes? Let’s just say this, Give Israel three weeks, and once she crosses that river and heads toward Egypt, you know what it says in the 19th chapter of Isaiah? When it is over, the people in the land of Egypt, are going to build an altar to the Lord. Why? Those Jews came down here and licked the daylights out of us, we saw the affect, now we want to live for their God. They know they cannot go up there, so they say, We will build us an altar down here just like theirs up there, where we can worship. Five cities in the land of Egypt will want to speak the language of Canaan. That is the Hebrew dialect. Just think, those old prophets spoke that so far in advance, but we can rest assured, it will happen. You need not look at me like I am crazy, I believe the Bible and I know what I am talking about. You are going to see this world turned upside down one day in the not to distant future, or you could say turned wrong side out and you will see a lot of politicians hang their head and wonder, where in the world have we been all this time. You have been sitting around talking, hoping and planning, We are going to do this, that and whatever. You are not going to do anything like what you have planned, because God is going to have His way. I know it seems like I get carried away at times, but I can read in that Bible and see some pictures of things that are coming and I cannot help but get excited. When this is fulfilled, do you know what the Bible says? It says this, in Isaiah 60 15-16, “Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations. 16Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.” What does that mean? God will cause His Spirit to move on their hearts. When He moves on their hearts, those kings are not going to sit there stiff necked, hard hearted, but they will say, Here, you can have this. The abundance of the sea will be converted. Conversion is not talking about spiritual conversion. It is talking about material substances. I can see boats sitting in the harbor loaded with all kinds of materials. When this takes place, orders come through to change direction. That ship will sail for Haifa. Hallelujah! Isaiah 60, verse 5 says, 5Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee. 6The multitude of camels shall Some may say, Well, we will have to run this through the courts, but I say, Like a cat through a milk house maybe. (That is my figure of speech.) I want you to know, this world for the last number of years has seen how Gentile politicians run this thing. They have made a mess out of it. While they belittle Israel and have shipped them here and shipped them there, but oh wait until God smiles on that little nation. Hallelujah! In that day Gentiles will come to him (a Jew) and say, We hear that God is with you, and we want to go with you. Now tell me what caused that? I hope there are some in that Hebrew University, that are listening to me this morning, If so, I want you to know your day is coming. All you will need to do is get a good TV and watch what God is doing. Your day is coming. The day of the Gentiles is just about over. They have polluted, they have cheated, they have lied, they have connived, they have robbed and have sent this world to bankruptcy. I have some figures here, so I just have to ask myself, How in the name of common sense can America, for the last sixty years, lend, lend, lend, give, give, give to every nation that holds out their hand with a pitiful story? We have already bankrupt the future generations for a thousand years, if there were that much time. Never in the history of the human race has any other nation done such a thing. Why should America have to? It is one thing to aide somebody, but America should not have to be the welfare institution for the whole planet. Billions and billions of dollars have been given away, and we do not give it to the people that really need it: we give it to the low down politicians in corrupt countries that take it for themselves. That happened a few years back when the Communists were trying to take control in Latin America. We were shipping wheat, flour, and aide down there during that time. That bunch of gangsters took it at the port, and it never did get to where it was intended. It showed one particular city down there, and the governor of that city, it showed his home with a big garage. This wheat that we sent down there for those poor people to have, was stored in this politician’s garage. On the outside of town he had a big hog farm. He was taking the wheat we sent down there to feed their poor people and feeding it to his hogs, all for his personal gain. That shows you how we send aide to other nations! Then some may say, Well don’t raise your voice, Bro. Jackson. Well, if I don’t tell me who is going to expose those crooks like that fellow? Responsible people may go to sleep, but I want you to know, God remembers every bit of this kind of business. That is why I have to say, When God says, Ye meek, seek the Lord, it may be ye will be hid in the day of his anger. I don’t want to be an enemy of God. I don’t want to have to run and hide my face. I want God to know I am sick and tired of this old selfish greedy world we live in. Go to Isaiah 29:19 in your Bibles and let us read a few verses. 19The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD, and the poor among men shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. 20For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: 21That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought. 22Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. 23But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.20For the terrible one is brought to nought, and the scorner is consumed, and all that watch for iniquity are cut off: 21That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought. 22Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. 23But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel. 21That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought. 22Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. 23But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.22Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale. 23But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel.23But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel. God know what He is going to do; and he knows when He will do it, but we live in a world of disbelievers that want to deny the existence of a sovereign God. 21That make a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of nought.
Isaiah 29:22 (KJV)
22Therefore thus saith the LORD, who redeemed Abraham, concerning the house of Jacob, Jacob shall not now be ashamed, neither shall his face now wax pale.
Isaiah 29:23 (KJV)
23But when he seeth his children, the work of mine hands, in the midst of him, they shall sanctify my name, and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear the God of Israel. Will our national debt ever be paid off? No. But one of these days Jesus is coming. How does that song go? Jesus is coming, can’t you see Him in the air, or something like that? These prophecies of the Bible paint a beautiful picture of the approach of this time frame when God is going to turn the entire world picture around. When God starts shaking this world’s society, banks and monetary systems, everything else, somebody is going to weep. Somebody is going to weep and cry and wish they had done things differently. Across the globe, young people sitting in colleges today are denied the truth and treated like prisoners. A judge in Texas, threatened the students at the time of graduation, If any of you mention the name of Jesus, I will arrest you. This kind of conduct is what makes me very angry. I was born in a nation that was not like that. I went to a little country, one room school. Every once in awhile the teacher would say, Let us all stand and bow our heads and pray, Our Father who art in heaven. We stood there and did not complain. Now we have let every atheist, every Communist, every socialist, materialist and such, all blend together to make life miserable for the rest of us. We now have a democracy of demonology and we are going to try to change the world to be like it. No. God is going to change it because Jesus Christ is coming soon. Everything has to be this way to fulfill the prophecies of the Bible. God being able to see the end from the beginning, could inspire His servants to write these prophecies we have been looking at. You may think I am just rattling, so I am going to read this article to you. “In Texas a district judge decreed that any student uttering the word Jesus at his school’s graduation would be arrested and locked up, and make no mistake, announced Judge Samuel Kent. The court is going to have a United States marshal in attendance at the graduation to carry it out.” That is your school system in America, the land of the free and home of the brave. They could sing, Coming in on a wing and a prayer in WW2, coming back from a raid on the enemy, with the tail of their plane shot out, the motor shot up, so coming in on a wing and a prayer was appropriate. God was all they needed. Those old planes came in and landed, and sometimes the tires were blown out. Brothers and sisters, I am not crazy. I have lived to see America go from a nation that had a reputation above reproach, to a total disgrace. I could remember when the jail house in Corydon had maybe two or three drunks in it and no one else. Just like everything else, as time came and went, they wanted to change the laws of everything, and for the last thirty five years we have been building jails and we cannot build them fast enough. We have shootings in colleges, shootings in grade schools, shootings on our streets; and who knows how to stop it? Brothers and Sisters: I will be glad when God begins to wind this thing down to the end. Well Bro. Jackson, do you want all of what you have mentioned to really take place? Yes, I do! Why? Because I know how it all turns out at the end. Some will say, Well you ought to be praying that God would hold it off. Why? So your kind can make it worse? Nobody can even talk to you who are a part of this compromising society right now, but oh, when God does begin to shake, He will do what it takes to open some eyes of those dwelling on this planet. He will shake some eyes open, but it will be too late.
KEEPING COMING EVENTS IN THE PROPER ORDER
I want to go to the chart behind me to familiarize everyone with some of the end time events that are ahead. Right here, marks the beginning of that 70th week of Daniel. We have it enlarged in relationship to all the other time frame shown here. The prophecies we are dealing with right now are prophecies that culminate right in here. What makes it hard for people to understand, how could it all be in that way, because they look at wars as Gentiles have fought wars, having them go on over months and years. This will not be that way. The Six Day War was a six day war, just like it says. A lot of people do not even realize how God equipped the mind of the Jewish leadership. The times we have been to Israel, we have had different guides with our groups through the years of time. One of these guides was a military man during that six day war. He said Israel realized that when this war was going to have to be fought, she also realized from the standpoint of the number of planes that Egypt, Jordan, and Syria had, there was no way Israel could match them. When it came to the number of men on the field, there was no way, but Israel had a strategy, when she realized that Egypt was going to make the strike, she absolutely loaded her bombers with bombs and they left the air fields early and flew at a low altitude over the Mediterranean until they had passed the area of Cairo Egypt. The reason they flew at a low altitude was so the Egyptian radar could not pick them up, to even know where they were. When they got west of Cairo, they raised up and circled back. When they came back, they knew exactly where all the air fields were located. She had different planes planned to hit the air fields and bomb the airstrips before Egypt could get a plane off the ground. The same way in Syria. She bombed their airfields completely beyond even being used in Egypt. This rendered the enemies’ air force helpless. They could not get into the air to fight with their planes. The Israeli air force then was free to work on the enemy supply lines. As Egypt and Syria and Jordan made their move, Israel knew exactly the routes that each one would take. They knew how to meet them. When we think of that prophecy in Luke 21, Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles until the time of the Gentiles be fulfilled. Little did anybody know what was going to come about in that Six Day War. Had Jordan not turned and started her engagement, Israel had no intentions of even trying to fight Jordan. But when the Jordanian troops did turn and begin to open fire on the Israeli troops, Israel was compelled to engage in combat with the Jordanian legion, the best military equipped army in the Middle East. In six days Israel won the entire victory. During different times guides have told us how Israeli soldiers, while in combat on the field, would tell of the miraculous things that would take place. When it was all over, very little of this was ever published by the world News Media. The world News Media for the last fifty years has absolutely made a fool of themselves by thinking they can just stop talking about God or giving God honor for anything, and that in itself was going to leave man strictly in charge of it. I have to say, God has this thing planned exactly the way He wants it. God knew what mortal mankind would think like, so that is why He has this end time all planned the way He wants it. Modern man today, does not even realize what He is up to. Let me go back to the chart now and say, Somewhere as we are nearing this point, (pointing to an area just before the week of Daniel is illustrated) this miracle war will take place, but do not look at this miracle war as something that will be lasting six or seven years. You look at it in the terms of weeks, no longer than that. When we put the time frame in that category, this gives God an opportunity to really show His miraculous power. That Six Day War did carry the investment of God’s angelic beings, but for some reason the very leadership of Israel did not give recognition to it. Some of the soldiers did, but the leadership did not. I have to say, People that are guilty of this are going to pay dearly. The years have come and gone since then. Where is that voice today that would speak out in the world leadership and say, All praise be to God for His marvelous works. It is not there. That is why I have to say, Every prophetic scripture for the end time is worded a certain way. I am not the smartest creature that ever walked on this earth, but I am thankful for what God has allowed me to see. He did not have to do anything He has done for me, He could have chosen smarter men that I am to do His work. Nevertheless I can look back and see that He saw something in me that He wanted to use, so He instilled in my soul a desire to serve Him, and the knowledge of these things in His word. As I draw your attention to this time frame remember this, when that miraculous era starts, it is going to be the beginning of God expressing His anger, not His wrath. His wrath does not come until the end of the three and a half years of tribulation. His anger is definitely going to be realized, because He is going to shake some nations, wake them up to the reality that He is still God, and that He sits in the heavens above. He can still rule among the affairs of men. This thing is going to go exactly the way He planned it and wants it.
