All of these prophecies, as terrible as they will be, are going to happen!
"I will say the word and will do it," says the Lord GOD

Let's look at some news:

This was a little comedy sent to me: How do you avoid divorce? It shows a picture of an isolated cabin. Those who were contemplating divorce were sent there. Here's what it was:

It was in Biertan, a Romanian village. The church had a room where couples wanting a divorce were placed together for two weeks with just one bed, one chair, one table, one plate, and one spoon, and they had to stay there.

What did that do for the divorce rate? It reduced it down to one divorce in 300 years! So, that sounds like a pretty good way to solve some problems. Get together, put down all your presumptuousness, preconceived notions, hurt feelings, damaged egos, and understand what Russell Kemp brought out that you have today. {note message Today! by Russell Kemp


San Francisco put a non-citizen in office. Of course, that's the whole plan of the Democrats, to destroy the country! They are sent by God, as we will find out in my message, because the people have left God!

I don't care who you are, where you are, whether you're converted or unconverted. IF you don't believe in God and IF you don't give credit to God for what He has done, sooner or later Satan takes over and runs the show and everything is destroyed.

It starts out with what we have: inflation; it's not going to cease, but increase!

Here's what's happening to church buildings.

Church Attacks Increase 800% in 6 Years: FRC Report

If you believe anti-Christian attacks have skyrocketed over the last decade, you're right. Attacks on churches have increased 800% in less than six years—and more than doubled over the last year, according to a new report released today by Family Research Council.

Now, that also includes this: Too much of what is called Christianity is a fantasy in non-Biblical things, which leads to satanism and destruction of what they believe.

Remember, when there is gross sin on an expanded level within any population, God stirs up the enemy as a means to bring them to repentance, if they will.


Concerning the Middle East and the coming King of the North, the Germans are planning on re-arming, instituting the draft, and here, to help the passage of European ships from the east through the Suez Canal to Europe, Germany is sending a frigate and it heads towards the Red Sea for a planned European mission to protect ships.

How many here experienced an outage this week? Well, there are a lot of outages spread about throughout all the United States, and the sum of it was that these were test runs by various hackers and Chinese!

Now remember, people are so into everything being on a computer, digitized on a smart-phone, and in the cloud. But, if you don't have electricity, it's gone. Need to keep that in mind. That's why I keep saying that you need to get a hard copy!


Now there's coming this, okay, here concerning Christianity in America. We're on the precipice of Christian invisibility. Why? Because of all the false teachings by that which is called Christianity in America is receiving the judgment of God; because they are willingly blinded, and we'll talk about it a little later, and they actually hate God, though they profess Jesus Christ.

How do they do that? They hate the Laws of God! They say the Old Testament is not valid, and so God is diminishing them, and the first major strike against them was COVID-19.


Have you heard of Neuralink? Do you know what Neuralink is? Well, you go online and look it up, and your friend Elon Musk. Remember, he's the hero to rescue Twitter, which is now called X, so everybody could freely express what they wanted to express, and take away the censorship that was there, and everybody said, 'Oh, Elon Musk is a hero!' All right, turn the coin over and here's the other side of Elon Musk: billionaire Elon Musk said, 'Progress is good with the first Neuralink implanted in the brain of a man.'

They said that by his thoughts he could control the mouse movement on the screen of a computer. Now that's quite a detailed operation, and they have approval from the FDA to do it. They discussed on the news: What if they use this for something that is not good or that is evil? The expert said, 'We need to be aware of that and be on guard.'

But you see, if you put that in, they put it in the back of the head—note that the mark of the beast will be on the right hand or in the forehead!

They have ways of programming things and putting programs in there that you know nothing about. They will never tell you, because they want to use that at the time that they want to use it to absolutely control everyone! Not just buying and selling, but:

  • who you are
  • where you are
  • what you do
  • what you say
  • what you speak
  • what you buy
  • what you sell
  • who your friends are

And if you don't meet their criteria, you will be cut off.

So, the mark of the beast is going to be much more dangerous than anybody ever thought. Of course, they start out with happy times, like in Sweden:

Oh, it's a wonderful thing; we all have the mark. We all have the little digital thing right here in our hand. We can open doors, unlock doors. We can telephone. We can do all the digital things right here in our hand. We can buy, we can sell. It's all convenient.

Wait until they're ready, and then it will be a different story!

Like Russell Kemp said, 'Take advantage of today, because we don't know what's coming tomorrow.'

Let's continue now with Truth and Power of God's Word!  Let's just talk a little bit about prophecy and things being fulfilled. We know, in looking at the prophecies, everything that's going on is fulfilling prophecy!

How powerful and true is the Word of God?

Dwight Blevins gave me a call and he said, 'Fred, I want you to look at the front of the Bible. We've had it all these years, and here it is on the front of the Bible telling everybody what's in the Bible.

So, if look at the cover, you will see in the emblem it says: "Your Word is the Truth"—John 17:17. On every Bible, and that is true. Now, let's see a demonstration of how true it is even on something that might seem trivial.

Dan. 12—a prophecy for the end-time. This is a prophecy we can see every day.

Daniel 12:4: "But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the book, even to the time of the end…."

How long is the time of the end? We don't know! In numbers of years, we can only know by events and things that take place.

"…Many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased" (v 4). What do we have today? People can go by:

  • roller-skate
  • skateboard
  • scooter
  • bicycle
  • electric bicycle
  • motorcycles
  • cars
  • trucks
  • buses
  • planes, large ones, small ones
  • boats

Everybody's going to and fro! So, the word many, and you think of it worldwide:

  • in every country
  • in every city
  • in everything that goes on

many means billions!

Just coming here to services today I went by one house, and guess how many cars were there? One house on a corner! Six cars!

Now, there may have been some visiting, but it was at the time of day that indicates they were there at night. We have increase in knowledge, as well. What has that led to?

  • more sin
  • more iniquity
  • more deaths
  • some astonishing things

Let's look at the word many again"

Matthew 7:13: "Enter in through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter through it."

Isn't that true with the prophecies that are coming?

Verse 14: "For narrow is the gate and difficult is the way that leads to life, and few are those who find it."

Isn't that also true to the other extreme? "…few are those who find it."

He defines it about false prophets. How many are there? Many! Hundreds! Using the name of Jesus just as Jesus said, '…Many shall come in My name saying I am the Christ…'

Verse 22: Let's see something very interesting, also understand this: God has caused to be published in many different ways, the Bible in 3,000 languages!

So it's available. Today with all the digitizing and things that we have, and all of the hard publications that we have, people have it ready right there.

  • Do not all the so-called Christian pastors, preachers, cardinals, bishops and priests have Bibles?
  • Do they open them and read them?
  • Yeah, they do!

They take some verses here and some verses there; but: What happens when people discount the Truth and Power of God's Word? They blind themselves! Therefore, they are willingly ignorant!

You can go online and you can ask for:  send me the writings of those Protestants who believe that the Sabbath is the seventh-day of the week.

You will find every single denomination admits that the Sabbath is the seventh day of the week. But they steadfastly close their eyes and harden their minds and their hearts and deliberately blind themselves because they won't obey! But when the resurrection happens, here's what it's going to be.

Verse 21: "Not everyone who says to Me 'Lord, Lord' shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven…"

They say, 'If you say this little prayer, Lord, Lord, come into my life?' We have to come to Christ. We can't command that He comes to us, and we have to come to Christ His way!

"…but the one who is doing the will of My Father, Who is in heaven…" (v 21).

What is the will of the Father? Russell Kemp gave a very good summary of that (in his message Today!). We have to believe God, we have to obey God, we have to love Him with all our heart, mind, soul and being! Isn't that correct? Yes, indeed!

Verse 22: "Many will say to Me in that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy through Your name? And did we not cast out demons through Your name? And did we not perform many works of power through Your name?'"

Now, what is Jesus going to say? Okay, fellows, line up here. Here's are your merit badges for all that you did.  He's not going to do that!  He's going to say"

Verse 23: "And then I will confess to them, 'I never knew you….'"

Why don't you think about the Power and Truth of God's Word? Many and never. Though they profess His name, you do not know God or Christ unless you do as:

1-John 2:4: "The one who says, 'I know Him' and does not keep His commandments, is a liar…." That's what Jesus said.

Matthew 7:23: "And then I will confess to them, 'I never knew you. Depart from Me, you who work lawlessness'"—that means against Law, God's Laws!

Don't we have it in Matt. 24, the prophecy that lawlessness will fly. And don't we have that today, increasing everywhere? Why? Because of these very ministers!

Verse 24: "Therefore, everyone who hears these words of Mine and practices them… [does them, lives by them] …I will compare him to a wise man, who built his house upon the rock; and the rain came down…" (vs 24-25)—trials, troubles and difficulties in the world!

"…and the floods came… [overwhelming circumstances] … and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; but it did not fall, for it was founded upon the rock" (v 25).

Now let's look at another thing concerning the Word of God.

Matt. 5—we've read this many times.

  • Is this in every Bible that the Protestants have?
  • That the Catholics have?
  • In their churches and in their homes? Yes it is!
  • Do they read it and believe it? No, they do not!

That's why the Truth and Power of God's Word, of the destruction that's coming on this nation and the world, is going to happen in an overwhelming way that is going to be absolutely astonishing! At the time God says this, Christ did!

  • Who was Christ? The Son of God!
  • What did He say of the Word of God? Your Word is the Truth!
  • Did he ever speak a lie?
  • Did he ever tell something that was not true?
  • Did not every word that he spoke take place? Yes!

So, He says; Matthew 5:17: "Do not think… [don't let it enter your mind] …that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish, but to fulfill"—which means to complete!

Remember this, there's one Lawgiver and He is God. If there's any change to the Law, it's not to abolish it so that you have liberty to sin, it's to replace it with the full spiritual meaning of His Word.

That's what Christ came to do. That's why we are to obey in the Spirit, not just in the letter. The laws that Jesus changed took place in two ways:

  • all of the priestly laws
  • all the sacrificial laws

were replaced with

  • spiritual prayer
  • spiritual sacrifice

through the grace of God, direct connection to God!

As it says in John 4, that we are to worship God in Spirit and in Truth. That's a higher level than coming to a temple and offering, and offering because it's your mind and your conscience to God!

If you have the Spirit of God in you, which you should have after baptism, we are to grow in grace and knowledge and increase in that. That's how the Law was improved to be spiritually applicable!

Not doing away with the Law or the Prophets, because we will see every word that God has said in prophecy is going to happen! He said here:

Verse 18: "For truly I say to you, until the heaven and the earth shall pass away…" Still here! Hasn't passed away! How applicable is the Law today?

"…one jot or one tittle shall in no way pass from the Law until everything has been fulfilled" (v 18).

That means the completion of God's Plan as defined in Rev. 21 & 22. Hasn't happened! We'll see something very similar in:

Luke 16:16: "The Law and the Prophets were until John…"

Does that mean He's done away with them? No, because He said that He didn't come to abolish them.
What does it mean? Before Christ came with the beginning of His ministry by John the Baptist, the Law and the Prophets were the final authority for every way to live!

After Christ came, we are to live by every Word of God, as Jesus said, defined by Him and brought out!

As we know in Heb. 10, we are to have the Laws and Commandments of God written in our mind and in our heart! Now that's better than on clay tablets, right? That's better on tablets of stone!  In other words, now it has to be internalized!

"…from that time the Kingdom of God is preached…[that's the whole Gospel of Jesus Christ, and is setting up of the Kingdom of God] …and everyone zealously strives to enter it" (v 16). That's what we are to do, zealously strive to get there!

Verse 17: "But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away… [still here] …than for one tittle of the Law to fail."

The prophecies of God, the Word of God, the Laws of God will not fail. Remember, Jesus also said He was the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and He said that man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God!

Now let's come back here to the book of Ezekiel. We're going to spend a little time in Ezekiel, and I'll probably have another couple of messages dealing with the book of Ezekiel.

Now Ezekiel has prophecies relating to that time, beginning with the exile of the children of Israel in the northern ten tribes in 732B.C. to the area north of Babylon. Then there was a final invasion later, and then there was the prophecies in Ezekiel concerning Jerusalem.

So, there are many different levels of prophecies that are in the book of Ezekiel, and they're not all in chronological order, but there are some here and some there and some someplace else.

Let's see what God says. Remember that Jesus said that heaven and earth will pass away before one jot or tittle shall pass from the Law or the Prophets.

Ezekiel 12:21: "And the Word of the LORD came to me, saying, 'Son of man, what is this proverb that you have concerning the land of Israel, saying: "The days are prolonged and every vision shall fail"?'" (vs 21-22).

Well, that's what they're saying about the prophecies of the Old Testament today. That's what they said back there about Ezekiel's prophecies and about Jeremiah's prophecies.

Verse 23: "Therefore, tell them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "I will make this proverb to cease…"'"

How is He going to make it cease? He tells us!

"'…and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel.' But say to them, 'The days are at hand…'" (v 23).

Now, that's a prophecy for any prophecy that is being fulfilled at any time through all the things that Ezekiel has said. There comes a time when the days are at hand and the fulfillment of every vision, and that is the vision of Ezekiel, Jeremiah, Isaiah, all of the twelve minor prophets.

Verse 24: "For there shall never again be any vain vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel."

That's ultimately what's going to happen!. That's a prophecy that reaches into the Millennium.

Verse 25: "For I, the LORD, will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall be done. [not going to fail] …It shall no more be delayed; for in your days, O rebellious house, I will say the word and will do it,' says the Lord GOD" (v 25)

Now, we're going to read some pretty heavy things that are going to happen here in America. They're starting to take place now. Now is the time to give the Ezekiel warning and witness to not only the Church, but to as much of the world as we can.

Verse 26: "And the Word of the LORD came to me, saying, 'Son of man, behold, the house of Israel says, "The vision that he sees is for many days to come, and he prophesies of the times that are far off"'"

Yes, that is true for some of the prophecies. But:

  • Are we many days removed from what Ezekiel had here?
  • Is it removed far off and is it here now? Yes!

Verse 28: "Therefore, say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "There shall none of my words be delayed any more, but the word, which I have spoken, shall be done," says the Lord GOD'"

You find that also in Rev. 10 where the angel told John, 'There is no more delay.'

"'…but the word which I have spoken shall be done,' says the Lord GOD." Now, that's pretty heavy indeed!

Isa. 57—this tells us about the Truth and Power of God's Word. All of these prophecies, as terrible as they will be, are going to happen!

Now in our lifetime, as we see these things beginning to accumulate and take place, we need to prepare:

  • we need to have extra food
  • we need to have extra water
  • we need to have whatever extra else you think you need

All these things are going to be done by the Word of God as He says, because He's God!

Isaiah 57:15: "For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity..."

If you're kind of into doldrums and you want to really be inspired, you go to the James Webb Telescope website and look up the latest catalog of new discoveries in the universe.

What an absolute inspiring thing to see and to understand that there, somewhere there, God is living and He's creating these things now. What is He creating them for? He's creating them for His Plan, for His Family!

Paul wrote, and it's also in Isaiah, 'The eye has not seen or the ear heard the things that God has prepared for those that love Him.' But He has revealed them to us by His Spirit! These things are also spiritually understood. He says:

"…Whose name is Holy; 'I dwell in the high and Holy place, even with the one who is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones'" (v 15).

That's what God is interested in. What did God say is how we are to worship God? In Spirit and in Truth!

One of the most important things about our conversion is, and we sometimes lay back and don't even think of it because too many people happen to think that they're okay, but how much evil is generated into your mind just by watching the daily television?

The ads that are there, which most of them now are demonic, and the movies and things like that. So, that's why Jesus said, 'Every day when we pray to God, we ask forgiveness for our sins.'

  • the longer you're in the Church
  • the longer you have the Spirit of God
  • the more that you read the Word of God

and it takes time, over time and repetition

  • then you begin to see the real depths of the evil that's in the mind

Don't believe me, go read Rom. 7 about how Paul had to fight against sin within!

What God is doing is taking His Spirit, and as we grow in grace and knowledge, He is replacing the evil:

  • with His Word
  • with His Love
  • with His Truth

Here's what we are to do. This is incumbent upon every elder in the Church. As Jesus said, the most important thing for us as elders to do is to teach the Word of God! We are not to rule over brethren. We are to help them to rule their own lives with the Spirit and the Word of God, and be converted. That's how it comes.

As far as the things in the world and the things that are taking place, and yes, even people within the Church of God"

Isaiah 58:1: "Cry aloud…"

It doesn't say to be gentle, kind and polite. By the way, don't offend any little sensitive feelings of people because they may not like you. No!

"…do not spare, lift up your voice like a ram's horn, and show My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.

That's what God wants! To the world and to the Church, every one of us and everyone who reads the Bible, let it correct you! Let it penetrate deep into your heart and into your mind!

As you've seen with all the elders bringing their messages… They're doing a great job and they're improving greatly in everything that they are going to do and are doing.

So likewise with all the brethren, we need to have the teachings that give us knowledge and understanding of God's way and a closeness to God with His Spirit and with His love so we can love Him the way we ought to. But in the world, here it is with the Israelites.

Verse 2: "Yet, they seek Me daily, and seem eager to know My ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and one that did not forget the ordinance of their God. They ask of Me the ordinances of justice; they seem eager to draw near to God. They say, 'Why have we fasted, and You do not see? Why have we afflicted our soul… [Why have we done all of this?] …and You take no knowledge?" Behold, in the day of your fast you pursue your business and exploit all your workers. Behold, you fast for strife and debate, and to strike with the fist of wickedness; you cannot fast as you do this day, and expect to make your voice to be heard on high" (vs 2-4).

What does God do?

Verse 5: "Is this such a fast that I have chosen? A day for a man to afflict his soul? Is it to bow down his head…"

That will come to God and be thankful and grateful in depth of heart, mind and soul and with joy; yet, with tears for the greatness of what God has done!

Let's see the world that we are in and let's see the problems that we are facing. It's going to take far more than putting Trump into office. It's going to take far more than just some few people turning to God. Although, all those who turn to God in Sincerity and Truth, God will honor and recognize and call.

But the majority of it is, and all you have to do is look at the news, we are in trouble! A lot of people say, 'Well, we need to return to God.' Well, they only come back to Sunday-keeping, They don't get very far.

Isaiah 59:1: "Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened that it cannot save, nor is His ear heavy that it cannot hear. But your iniquities…" (vs 1-2).

That's talking about Israel today. Look at the sins that they have in breaking the commandments of God with all:

  • the crime
  • the abortions
  • the robbing and stealing
  • the influx of immigrants that God has sent as punishment to this nation

Stop and think! Those Chinese that come, they've even found some of them out at the rifle range practicing using their weapons. What do you suppose that is for?

God prophesied the captivity of Israel and it is coming! Obama has his million-man army! Here's the reason:

Verse 2: "But your iniquities have come between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear."

Remember what God told Jeremiah? He told him three times, 'Do not pray for these people for I will not hear you!'

Verse 3: "For your hands are defiled with blood…"

Yes, 62-million abortions! To say nothing of war, of crime, of accidents, and your fingers with iniquity!

"…and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies…" (v 3).

Isn't that all we hear from the majority of the politicians, especially the one who is called 'our president' today. He is the liar in chief!

"…your tongue has muttered perverseness" (v 3).

Isn't that true? Perverseness and transgenderism! Now they want to pass the laws that if the parents don't agree with their child's stupid decision to change gender, which they can't, they can take the children away from the parents and take them into the hospital and do whatever they want to do with them with the mangle of operations that the Germans were doing during WWII.

  • there are a few people out there calling for justice
  • there are a few people out there calling for change

But they're not calling for it in a way that is going to be anything successful, because they're not told the Truth of the heavy hand of the power of God and the power of God's Word! Like we read, God said, 'He said it, He will do it'; He said it three times!

Verse 4: "None calls for justice, nor does anyone plead for Truth; they trust in vanity and speak lies. They conceive mischief and bring forth iniquity. They hatch adders' eggs and weave the spider's web; he who eats their eggs dies, and that which is crushed breaks out into a viper" (vs 4-5).

That's a way of explaining demonism running rampant, and that's what we have today!

Oh, but it comes in 'nice things' that Disney does! Look at the ads for some of the movies, all demonic! Look at the movies, all war and destruction and killing and that's telling you what's coming.

Verse 6: "Their webs shall not become clothing, nor shall they cover themselves with their works; their works are works of iniquity, and the acts of violence are in their hands. Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood; their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths" (vs 6-7).

Does that not define exactly what's happening in America and in the world today? Yes, it is! Prophecy and God is going to bring the solution when Christ returns. Here shows the reason why:

Verse 8: "They have not known the way of peace, and there is no justice in their ways. They have made crooked paths for themselves; whoever goes therein shall not know peace. Therefore, justice is far from us; nor does righteousness overtake us. We wait for light, but behold, darkness; for brightness, but we walk in deep shadows. We grope along the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes. We stumble at noonday as in the night; among those who are strong, we are like dead men" (vs 8-10).

That describes this whole nation very adequately in everything that's being done, starting in the churches and in the government, starting right in the presidency. There are a few in Congress trying to do some things that are right, and I commend Speaker Johnson, because he says his favorite Bible passage is Psa. 37. You might read that. God will honor with all this evil going on even some of those attempts to do right according to the Word of God, but it won't last long!

Verse 12: "For our transgressions are multiplied before You… [sin after sin after sin just laid one upon the other] …and our sins testify against us; for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them"—but they don't want to stop from it!

  • What are you going to do with the youth population which 30% of them declare that they are non-binary, meaning they're homosexual?
  • What are you going to do with a population like that?

God says it's like Sodom and Gomorrah!

In rebellion and denial of the Lord: "…and our sins testify against us; for our transgressions are with us; and as for our iniquities, we know them; in rebellion and denial of the LORD, and turning away from our God, talking perversity and revolt, conceiving and speaking from the heart words of falsehood. And justice is driven backward, and righteousness stands afar off; for Truth has fallen in the street, and uprightness cannot enter. Yea, Truth fails…" (vs 12-15)—that's where we are!

Try and tell anybody about the Truth of God and they will look at you with the strangest look possible because they have never heard anything like it. Truth fails!

Well, we'll have to pick it up there next time because there's a lot to cover. We can't cover it all at once. Remember that Ezekiel has prophecies:

  • for his day
  • for Jerusalem, its first destruction and its second destruction
  • for Israel at that time
  • Israel into the last days

All of these are woven together in the book of Ezekiel and when we read some of these other things next week, we are going to see that it's going to be really heavy, heavy stuff to take!

But God will look for those who moan and groan for the iniquities of Israel! He will give protection and He will give peace as much as the circumstances will allow.

So these words and these messages must go out and like God told Ezekiel, 'Whether they will hear and do or forbear and forget.' The choice will be up to everyone! We need God to:

  • strengthen us
  • help us
  • guide us

in everything we do!
