  • THAT HE CANNOT LONGERFEEL THE CONVICTION OF GOD
  • 00:04:14.043 --> 00:04:17.680

  • 00:04:20.183 --> 00:04:22.618
  • ABOUT A MARTIAL ARTS TECHNIQUECALLED THE IRON PALM.
  • 00:04:22.652 --> 00:04:28.825
  • THE IRON PALM IT SAYSPEOPLE IN MARTIAL ARTS
  • 00:04:28.858 --> 00:04:30.860
  • KNOW THAT BEFORE THEYENGAGE IN COMPETITION
  • 00:04:30.893 --> 00:04:34.497
  • ONE WAY TO ENSURE VICTORYIS TO TAKE THEIR OPEN PALM
  • 00:04:34.530 --> 00:04:38.368
  • AND STRIKE IT AGAINSTTHE HARD BLUNT OBJECT.
  • 00:04:38.401 --> 00:04:43.072
  • AND IF THEY DO THAT ITDEVELOPS CALLUSES ON THEIR HAND
  • 00:04:43.106 --> 00:04:47.243
  • SO THAT THEIR OPPONENTWILL FEEL THEIR BLOW
  • 00:04:47.276 --> 00:04:50.580
  • EVEN MORE STRONGLY.
  • 00:04:50.613 --> 00:04:52.749
  • AND SO THEY DO THATREPEATEDLY IN TRAINING,
  • 00:04:52.782 --> 00:04:56.252
  • THEY STRIKE THAT BLUNT OBJECT.
  • 00:04:56.285 --> 00:04:58.921
  • THE ONLY PROBLEM WITHTHAT TECHNIQUE IS
  • 00:04:58.955 --> 00:05:01.057
  • THEY SO DESTROY THEIROWN NERVE ENDINGS
  • 00:05:01.090 --> 00:05:03.860
  • THEY CAN'T FEEL ANYTHINGEITHER ANY LONGER
  • 00:05:03.893 --> 00:05:06.562
  • THEIR HAND BECOMESUSELESS TO THEM.
  • 00:05:06.596 --> 00:05:10.366

  • DO YOU KNOW WHATTHAT WORD MEANS?
  • 00:05:12.335 --> 00:05:13.369
  • IT MEANS TO STRIKE AGAINST
  • 00:05:13.403 --> 00:05:16.105
  • THAT'S WHAT AN UNBELIEVER DOES.
  • 00:05:16.139 --> 00:05:18.508
  • HE, INSTEAD OF REPENTINGHE STRIKES AGAINST GOD,
  • 00:05:18.541 --> 00:05:23.045
  • BUT GOD IS AN IMMOVABLE OBJECT.
  • 00:05:23.079 --> 00:05:26.449
  • HE DOESN'T CHANGE, HE DOESN'TALTER, HE DOESN'T BEND.
  • 00:05:26.482 --> 00:05:30.653
  • THE ONLY PERSON WHO ISINJURED IN BLASPHEMY
  • 00:05:30.686 --> 00:05:33.990
  • IS THE UNBELIEVER.
  • 00:05:34.023 --> 00:05:35.525
  • AS HE STRIKES OUT AGAINST GOD,
  • 00:05:35.558 --> 00:05:38.394
  • HE SO HARDENEDHIS OWN CONSCIENCE
  • 00:05:38.428 --> 00:05:41.063
  • THAT HE CAN NO LONGER FEELTHE CONVICTION OF GOD,
  • 00:05:41.097 --> 00:05:43.900
  • HE IS NO LONGERCAPABLE OF REPENTANCE.
  • 00:05:43.933 --> 00:05:47.170

  • COULD IT BE SOME KIND OFFAILURE OF THE POWER GRID
  • 00:07:08.818 --> 00:07:12.788
  • OR ATTACK ON THE POWERGRID IN JERUSALEM
  • 00:07:12.822 --> 00:07:14.924

  • ESPECIALLY IN A TIME OF CRISIS
  • 00:07:21.664 --> 00:07:23.966

  • WHAT IS HE TALKING ABOUT?
  • 00:09:19.949 --> 00:09:21.417
  • REMEMBER BACK INREVELATION NINE,
  • 00:09:21.450 --> 00:09:23.052
  • WE SAW THE PROLOGUE TO THIS
  • 00:09:23.085 --> 00:09:25.655
  • ABOUT THE DEMONICSPIRITS BEING UNLEASHED
  • 00:09:25.688 --> 00:09:28.691
  • AT THE RIVER EUPHRATESTO PREPARE THAT RIVER
  • 00:09:28.724 --> 00:09:31.594
  • FOR THE INVASION OFA 200 MILLION PERSONARMY FROM THE EAST.
  • 00:09:31.627 --> 00:09:38.000
  • AND HERE YOU SEE IT AGAIN,IT'S GONNA BE DRIED UP
  • 00:09:38.034 --> 00:09:41.971
  • FOR THE MOVEMENT OFTHE KINGS OF THE EAST.
  • 00:09:42.004 --> 00:09:46.375
  • WE DON'T KNOW WHERE THIS 200MILLION PERSON ARMY ORIGINATES.
  • 00:09:46.409 --> 00:09:50.546
  • SOME HAVE SPECULATEDTHAT IT IS CHINA,
  • 00:09:50.579 --> 00:09:53.449
  • CHINA HAS HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDSAND HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS
  • 00:09:53.482 --> 00:09:56.285
  • OF MEN AND WOMEN AVAILABLEFOR MILITARY SERVICE.
  • 00:09:56.318 --> 00:09:59.321
  • OTHERS SAY IT MAY BE FROM IRAN
  • 00:09:59.355 --> 00:10:01.724
  • OR SOME AMALGAMATIONOF NATIONS THAT COME,
  • 00:10:01.757 --> 00:10:05.127
  • BUT THE RIVER IS DRIED UP
  • 00:10:05.161 --> 00:10:08.164
  • TO PREPARE THE WAY FOR THEKINGS OF THE EAST TO COME WHERE
  • 00:10:08.197 --> 00:10:11.834
  • TO COME TO ISRAEL.
  • 00:10:11.867 --> 00:10:13.069
  • LOOK AT VERSE 13,
  • 00:10:13.102 --> 00:10:14.470
  • "AND I SAW COMING OUT OFTHE MOUTH OF THE DRAGON

  • "TO THE PLACE, WHICH INHEBREW IS CALLED HAR-MAGEDON."
  • 00:10:46.001 --> 00:10:51.807
  • MANY OF US HAVE BEEN TO THATPLACE CALLED HAR-MAGEDON
  • 00:10:51.841 --> 00:10:55.444
  • HAR-MAGEDON LITERALLYTHE MOUNT OF MEGIDDO.
  • 00:10:55.478 --> 00:10:59.548
  • IF YOU'VE BEEN THERE, YOUKNOW IT'S NOT A MOUNTAIN,
  • 00:10:59.582 --> 00:11:01.417
  • IT'S REALLY MORELIKE A LITTLE HILL.
  • 00:11:01.450 --> 00:11:03.352
  • BUT UNDERNEATH IT IS THATVAST PLAIN OF JEZREEL.
  • 00:11:03.385 --> 00:11:07.656
  • WHEN NAPOLEON STOOD THEREHUNDREDS OF YEARS AGO,
  • 00:11:07.690 --> 00:11:10.059
  • HE LOOKED OUT ON THATPLANE AND HE SAID
  • 00:11:10.092 --> 00:11:12.361
  • "THIS IS THE MOSTNATURAL BATTLEFIELDIN THE ENTIRE WORLD."
  • 00:11:12.394 --> 00:11:16.665
  • IT IS MASSIVE AND IT IS THE SIGN
  • 00:11:16.699 --> 00:11:19.668
  • OF THE FINAL WORLD CONFLICT.
  • 00:11:19.702 --> 00:11:22.938
  • HOW WILL THAT OCCUR?
  • 00:11:22.972 --> 00:11:24.940
  • MOST LIKELY, WHATIS GONNA HAPPEN IS,
  • 00:11:24.974 --> 00:11:26.509
  • THE KINGS OF THE EAST
  • 00:11:26.542 --> 00:11:28.778
  • WHO ARE UNDER THE THUMBOF THE ANTICHRIST,
  • 00:11:28.811 --> 00:11:31.147
  • WHO IS THE WORLD DICTATORGET TIRED OF HIS RULE.
  • 00:11:31.180 --> 00:11:35.584
  • THEY BLAME HIM FORALL OF THE PLAGUES
  • 00:11:35.618 --> 00:11:37.787
  • COMING UP ON THE EARTH, HAVEYOU EVER HEARD THE SAYING,
  • 00:11:37.820 --> 00:11:39.989
  • "HE WHO CALLS THESHOTS, TAKES THE SHOTS."
  • 00:11:40.022 --> 00:11:43.659
  • IT'S JUST NATURAL TOWANNA BLAME A LEADER
  • 00:11:43.692 --> 00:11:46.162
  • FOR ANY BAD THING THAT HAPPENS
  • 00:11:46.195 --> 00:11:48.464
  • SO THEY DECIDE IT'STIME FOR A COUP
  • 00:11:48.497 --> 00:11:50.900
  • IT'S TIME TO OVERTHROWTHE ANTICHRIST.
  • 00:11:50.933 --> 00:11:53.502
  • WHY IN THE WORLD DO THEY THINK
  • 00:11:53.536 --> 00:11:55.237
  • THEY CAN SUCCEED IN DOING THAT?
  • 00:11:55.271 --> 00:11:57.173
  • THEY ARE LURED THEREBY THE SPIRITS,
  • 00:11:57.206 --> 00:12:00.876
  • THE DEMONS OF SATANOF THE DRAGON.
  • 00:12:00.910 --> 00:12:04.079
  • THOSE ARE THE ONES THATBRING THE ANTICHRIST THERE
  • 00:12:04.113 --> 00:12:06.682
  • BUT THEY ARE ALL UNDER THEDIRECTION OF GOD HIMSELF.
  • 00:12:06.715 --> 00:12:11.687
  • GOD IS BRINGING ALLOF THE KINGS TOGETHER
  • 00:12:11.720 --> 00:12:14.290
  • IN ONE PLACE,

  • ALL OF THE ARMIES OFTHE WORLD IN ONE PLACE,
  • 00:12:16.158 --> 00:12:19.295
  • IN ORDER TO EXPERIENCEHIS JUDGMENT.
  • 00:12:19.328 --> 00:12:22.364
  • BY THE WAY, YOU SAW THE SAMETHING IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 00:12:22.398 --> 00:12:24.667
  • IN 1 KINGS 22.
  • 00:12:24.700 --> 00:12:26.368
  • REMEMBER THE STORY ABOUTHOW THE EVIL SPIRITS
  • 00:12:26.402 --> 00:12:28.938
  • LURED KING AHAB TORAMOTH-GILEAD TO DO BATTLE
  • 00:12:28.971 --> 00:12:34.677
  • WHERE HE WAS DESTROYED.
  • 00:12:34.710 --> 00:12:35.878
  • IT WAS GOD WHO USEDTHOSE DEMONS TO DO THAT.
  • 00:12:35.911 --> 00:12:39.315
  • GOD IS SOVEREIGNEVEN OVER DEMONS.
  • 00:12:39.348 --> 00:12:42.518
  • HE USES THEM TO EXECUTE THATJUDGMENT AND THIS ONE AS WELL.
  • 00:12:42.551 --> 00:12:48.991
  • NOW AGAIN, IF YOU'VE SEENTHE PLAIN OF ARMAGEDDON
  • 00:12:49.024 --> 00:12:50.559
  • THE PLAIN OF JEZREEL, YOUKNOWN AS MASSIVE AS IT IS
  • 00:12:50.593 --> 00:12:53.996
  • IT'S NOT LARGE ENOUGHFOR 200 MILLION PEOPLE.
  • 00:12:54.029 --> 00:12:57.533
  • REMEMBER THIS BATTLEIS REALLY A WAR
  • 00:12:57.566 --> 00:13:00.903
  • THAT EXTENDS UP AND DOWN THELENGTH OF ISRAEL, 200 MILES.
  • 00:13:00.936 --> 00:13:05.040

  • TO THE HORSES BRIDALFOUR AND A 1/2 FEET.
  • 00:13:11.280 --> 00:13:13.682
  • BUT ARMAGEDDON THEPLAIN OF JEZREEL

  • IT IS THE GREATBATTLE OF THE LORD.

  • NOW THAT PREPARES FORTHE FINAL JUDGMENT
  • 00:13:39.842 --> 00:13:43.045
  • THE FINAL DESTRUCTION,LOOK AT VERSE SEVEN.
  • 00:13:43.078 --> 00:13:46.315
  • "THEN THE SEVENTH ANGELPOURED OUT HIS BOWL

  • WHEN YOU SEE THE RESULTS OF IT
  • 00:14:28.223 --> 00:14:29.692
  • IT CERTAINLY SOUNDS LIKE THAT.
  • 00:14:29.725 --> 00:14:31.193
  • LOOK AT VERSE 19,
  • 00:14:31.226 --> 00:14:32.394
  • "THE GREAT CITY WASSPLIT INTO THREE PARTS."
  • 00:14:32.428 --> 00:14:35.264

  • WHAT IS BABYLON?
  • 00:15:01.457 --> 00:15:02.691
  • WE'LL TALK ABOUT THATTHE NEXT TWO SUNDAYS.

  • IT'S NOT A CITY,IT'S A WORLD SYSTEM

  • IT'S JUST TALKINGABOUT THIS EXPLOSION,
  • 00:15:15.704 --> 00:15:17.639

  • HERE IT IS AGAIN,
  • 00:15:52.775 --> 00:15:54.176
  • "THEY BLASPHEME GOD BECAUSEOF THE PLAGUE OF HAIL,

  • "BECAUSE ITS PLAGUEWAS EXTREMELY SEVERE."
  • 00:15:57.413 --> 00:16:04.253
  • HOW ARE WE TO UNDERSTAND THIS?

  • YOU KNOW SO MANY TIMES
  • 00:16:11.193 --> 00:16:12.594
  • I'LL GIVE YOU TWO ORTHREE TIMELESS PRINCIPLES
  • 00:16:12.628 --> 00:16:14.897
  • FROM A PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE,
  • 00:16:14.930 --> 00:16:16.799
  • TODAY I JUST HAVE ONE.
  • 00:16:16.832 --> 00:16:19.101
  • AND I WANT YOU TOWRITE THIS TRUTH DOWN,
  • 00:16:19.134 --> 00:16:21.703
  • CIRCLE IT AND REMEMBERIT, THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
  • 00:16:21.737 --> 00:16:25.007
  • AND HERE'S THE SIMPLE PRINCIPLE.
  • 00:16:25.040 --> 00:16:27.876
  • GOD'S JUDGMENT ISNOT ALWAYS IMMEDIATE
  • 00:16:27.910 --> 00:16:32.481
  • BUT IT'S ALWAYS INEVITABLE.
  • 00:16:32.514 --> 00:16:35.818
  • LET ME SAY IT AGAIN.
  • 00:16:35.851 --> 00:16:37.052
  • GOD'S JUDGMENT ISNOT ALWAYS IMMEDIATE
  • 00:16:37.086 --> 00:16:38.921
  • BUT IT'S ALWAYS INEVITABLE.
  • 00:16:38.954 --> 00:16:42.691
  • THERE'S AN INTRIGUING VERSE INSCRIPTURE, ECCLESIASTES 8:11.
  • 00:16:42.724 --> 00:16:47.029
  • IT SAYS, "BECAUSE THESENTENCE AGAINST AN EVIL DEED
  • 00:16:47.062 --> 00:16:50.199
  • "IS NOT EXECUTEDIMMEDIATELY, QUICKLY.
  • 00:16:50.232 --> 00:16:54.103
  • "THEREFORE, THE HEARTSOF THE SONS OF MEN
  • 00:16:54.136 --> 00:16:56.939
  • "AMONG THEM ARE FULLYGIVEN TO DO EVIL."
  • 00:16:56.972 --> 00:17:01.143
  • IN OTHER WORDS,WHEN PEOPLE DO WRONG
  • 00:17:01.176 --> 00:17:03.479
  • WHEN PUNISHMENT DOESN'TCOME IMMEDIATELY
  • 00:17:03.512 --> 00:17:06.715
  • IT JUST MAKES THEM TO WANT TOSIN MORE AND MORE AND MORE.
  • 00:17:06.748 --> 00:17:11.386
  • AND IT'S THE SAME IN OURRELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.
  • 00:17:11.420 --> 00:17:15.891
  • IF WE GO ON SINNING ANDTHERE'S NO RESULT OF IT,
  • 00:17:15.924 --> 00:17:19.394
  • NO DISCOMFORT IN OURLIVES BECAUSE OF IT.
  • 00:17:19.428 --> 00:17:22.798
  • WE'RE TEMPTED TO THINK,
  • 00:17:22.831 --> 00:17:24.032
  • "WELL, YOU KNOW, MAYBETHAT GOD PASTOR JEFFRESS
  • 00:17:24.066 --> 00:17:26.802
  • "PREACHES ABOUTISN'T THE REAL GOD.
  • 00:17:26.835 --> 00:17:29.872
  • "MAYBE GOD'S NOT ASCONCERNED ABOUT SIN
  • 00:17:29.905 --> 00:17:33.008
  • "AS PASTOR JEFFRESS SAYS HE IS."
  • 00:17:33.041 --> 00:17:36.345
  • THEY THINK, "WELL MAYBEI'VE GOT A SPECIAL EXEMPTION
  • 00:17:36.378 --> 00:17:39.114
  • "FROM GOD'S JUDGMENTBECAUSE OF WHO I AM.
  • 00:17:39.148 --> 00:17:41.917
