The Teachings Of David Koresh


Recorded  August 24, 1987
Transcribed  by Mark Swett


TRANSCRIBER’S NOTE: This is the first transcription that I did in 1994.  After completing this draft I had to move on to other areas of Waco research. Obviously it contains some gross errors in punctuation etc. I decided to release it as is with the understanding that this transcript is not representative of my work.

The scholars that I worked with have dubbed this “The Shower Head Tape.” I have kept that title for this transcription. Another point of interest is that this is one of eight tapes from a marathon Bible study session conducted by Koresh in Wisconsin.

Unless otherwise identified the speaker is  David Koresh

...... to legislate what they identify as religion. In other words, if your not part a of their major denomination of evangelicalism then your not a religion. So therefore, when they get into the political sector of - of - of politics then they’re gonna make laws, and make a religious America. And their the ones who want to reform the Jews even if it’s at gunpoint. They realize the necessity of gaining Israel because they believe that they are a modern Israel. They think that they are fulfilling the prophecies, and Zechariah foretells this in prophecy. They’re the ones who have funded the restoration of the Jews in Palestine. You see? America sends millions of dollars yearly to Israel in the name of religion to fund the Jews; because they think that the fleshy Jews are gonna go back and inherit the land.

Male: They think the what?

The fleshy Jews.

Male: I don’t understand that.

The Jews of the flesh who are no better then a gentile. Being in the flesh is not the seed of Abraham. Following the prophecies and believing the spirit of truth, that’s the true Israel. Not the fleshy Jews who won’t accept Christ.

Male: ...... they’re going back to Israel too.

Yes. They’re going back now.

Male: Huh?

Why do you think Christians call it Babylon for? I mean every religion in the world has it’s headquarters over there. The Catholics, Episcopalians ...

Male: Isn’t that where the Rapture is supposed to take place?


Male: So the world ends in Jerusalem?

Well no. They - Baptists have several different sections of that doctrine. But what we’re stating is that this was - that takes place. America is going to bring the offensive to police up the area, and in so doing overtake countries in Palestine. They’re gonna like the taste of blood, and so doing they’re gonna finally take Jerusalem of which time this message begins. Only for those who know of it ahead of time. To stand in the day of trouble - the day of trouble eliminates the righteous from the wicked. But God is not gonna judge the world at this time. Remember, Babylon the great comes into existence and the message is come out of her my people. You must be a part of the 144,000 who are with him or otherwise you’re lost. The Adventist church is a rejected church. They are not God’s people. They have not been for years. You see? That’s why they had no commission in the world. They haven’t ever preached the Sabbath as it is to be preached. They don’t keep it as it is to be kept. They know nothing of it cause they have no spirit of prophecy. No way of proof in the church. You understand what I am saying? But the seventh angel comes with a powerful message. A message of conviction which is strictly Bible. They don’t have to quote Sister White. As a matter of fact, this message can tear up every previous prophecy that ever came. They can tear them up by simply harmonizing them. It tears up actually man made pre-conceived ideals and what people think the scriptures are teaching. You see that?

In Isaiah 53 we learn that God has seed. Doesn’t he? We learn that it relates to those who are bearing the vessels of the Lord. But he’s gonna see his seed. And the woman who did not bear it is gonna still have children because her Lord is gonna marry her. Her maker. Ok? What do the Psalms say about this? Nahum seeing the same vision, Nahum is speaking of the nation of Assyria - modern Assyria. But though he sees the vision in the light of ancient Assyria. And the vision begins:

“God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he [will] reserveth wrath for his enemies.” (Nahum 1:2)

God hates these guys. The king’s of the north.

“The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind [the whirlwind ok?] and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth [all of northern Israel]. The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt.” (Nahum 1:3-5a)

Remember in Revelation 10 his feet are as flames of fire? Ok? In Micah 1 it says that the Lord shall come down, and the mountains shall be molten under him. Remember that every mountain shall be brought down? Oh, boy. You’re not gonna believe this when it’s really blown up to you. But I have to give it to you very limited. Notice:

“...and the earth is burned in his presence, yeah the world, and all that dwell therein. Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him. The LORD is good [though], a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.” (Nahum 1:5b-7).

And that they trust in his what? Word. If you don’t know his word, don’t think that you’re gonna be able to trust in a theory.

“But with an overflowing [ overunning] flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and [the] darkness shall pursue his enemies.” (Nahum 1:8)

It’s a great dark day isn’t it anyway?

“What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction will not rise up the second time.” (Nahum 1:9)

[ Phone rings]

Steve: Hello? We’re right in the middle of a study. Can I take your message and have him return the call? Oh, Rachel! Yeah.

This affliction is against the person who is causing affliction. Do you know what he imagined against the Lord? An evil thought. The Psalms [?] about this imagination? Habakkuk says that they know not the prophecies of the Lord so therefore, they imagine something wicked that they cannot even bring to pass. But they want to do it anyway.

“For while they be folden together as thorns, and while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.” (Nahum 1:10)

Whose the ones he’s talking about?

( David takes the phone)

Yes sweetheart. We’re right in the middle of a study. Take it back. Who is they? Well did you eat any of it? Why didn’t she read the ingredients? You tell her to sit down and eat every last bit of it. You tell her to sit down and eat every last bit of it. You tell her to eat every last bit of it because she was told not to buy anything anymore. That doesn’t make any difference. She was still given her commandments from God and if she can’t follow them that’s too bad. That’s beside the point. God has told her before not to do such things and she continues to do it. You sit her - tell her to sit down and eat of every last bit of it. Bye.

This king of the north imagines an evil thought. Micah tells us about what he thinks. He hears a [ ] of evil that troubles him so he goes forth [ ] to take away many. He imagines an evil thought against God’s people Psalm 2 tells us. The heathen rage and they imagine a vain thing but God in heaven laughs at em. Cause they don’t know what God has said about the situation. Affliction will not [ ] a second time, yet those who cause sparks are to lie down. And in the sparks that ye have kindled. That’s what the messenger says right? He says that many of you will shall lie in sorrow. Here’s what happens:

“For while they be folden together as thorns, as while they are drunken as drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.” (Nahum 1:10)

They’re gonna be burned up. These guys are having a beer bust the night they’re destroyed. Notice:

“There is one come out of thee, that imagineth evil against the lord, a wicked counsellor."” (Nahum 1:11)

He speaks contrary to revealed truth. He tells the people what they should do to that guy who is on the mountains. He is the one that suggests that while we need to do this and that and this it would be a good example for the world to show the world what happens to people who are part of cults. Their object is they want to stop cults and sects.

“Thus saith the Lord; Though they be quiet, and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through.” (Nahum 1:12a)

Whose gonna pass thru do you think?

Male: Cyrus.

That’s right.

“...Though I have afflicted thee (talking about God’s people), I will afflict thee no more. For now will I break his yoke from off thee.” (Nahum 1:12a-13a)

Whose yoke? The king of the north’s yoke off of God’s people who bowed down their back and they went over their back. Remember what Isaiah says?

“...and will burst thy bonds in sunder. And the LORD hath given a commandment concerning thee (the king of the north) that no more of thy name be sown: out of the house of thy gods.” (Nahum 1:13b-14a)

What is his name? What is the name of his gods? He worships the god of [forces?] Yesus Christus often known today as Jesus Christ.

“...will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: (and) I will make thy grave; because thou are vile. ” (Nahum 1:14b)

This all happens when?

“Behold, upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings.” (Nahum 1:15a)

Huh. There’s that nut again. You see? I mean these American troops, you know their good old American boys. I mean, there over there cussin, and stuff you know. It’s all a religious war. Girls, boys, you know. Mom’s apple pie, and Budweiser, and a little religion, you know, and praise to the Lord and all that kind of stuff.

Male: And that’s the reserve troops.

And these guys bring good tidings for the people.

“...O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, (He tells the Jews keep your feasts) perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.” (Nahum 1: 15b)

Huh. Well. Like this guys all through the prophecies. Wait till you find out this. He’s always on that mountain. And all the world [ ] to see the salvation of our God. Our God is gonna finally bring it all to an end. Can you imagine that Steve? This world is gonna come to an end. And it’s gonna come to an end in such a weird way. Such a wired way.

“He that dasheth in pieces is come up before thy face: keep the munition, watch the way, make thy loins strong, fortify thy power mightily. For the LORD hath turned away the excellency of Jacob Israel: for the emptiers have emptied them out, and marred their vine branches.” (Nahum 2:1-2)

Just like Joel 1 say’s. You see? So in other words, the American troops come in and totally devastate Jerusalem take all their food. Joel 1 tells us.

“The shield of his mighty men is made red, the valiant men are in scarlet: the chariots [are] shall be with flaming torches.” (Nahum 2:3a)

You know why? Cause they’re war tanks.

“In the day of (the) his preparation, and the fir trees shall be terribly shaken.” (Nahum 2:3b)

Bang ! You’re gonna see the trees. It’s a war. Are you ready for a war? You guys.

Male: ......I’m probably ready but I hope I don’t have to fight it.

No. You see, that’s the thing with you Adventist people. You all don’t know nothing.

Male: You can see war coming?

Anyway - yeah. But, we want to know the how’s, where’s and the specifics. Let’s face it. Sure. Jesus say’s you fools. You’re able to discern the seasons by looking into the heavens, but yet you can’t tell the day of the Lord.

“The chariots shall rage in the streets, they shall justle one against another in the broad ways: they shall seem like torches, they shall run like lightnings."” (Nahum 2:4)

These Merkabah war tanks are fast. Man, I’ve seen them myself. The American tank can’t match it but nevertheless, the Israeli tank is gonna be whipped. The Merkabah or Merkabah has the ability to zero in with azimuth for any given object. They can run at thirty-five miles an hour and not even - the barrel will not even move off the target. That’s how good the tank is.

Male: Now, this is an Israeli war ....

An Israeli war tank. Oh yeah, an Uzi machine gun. We’ve been shot at by one. The Uzi machine gun is one of the fastest, most smoothest operating machine guns in the world . The whole world wants it. ch - ch - ch - ch - ch. Just like that.

Male: Who has [ ]

Israel. Yeah.

Male: You said we’ve been shot. U.S. systems?

No, no, no, no.

Female: [ ] will when we go there.

No, no. Ah, when the message came early a gentleman thought that I was the devil. So he went ahead and got an Israeli machine gun that was smuggled over. So he was asked to...

Male: You were the one that brought it over?

No. I didn’t bring it over. This other gentleman had it brought over. And what happened was. We was asked to come to some meetings at Mt. Carmel. And what took place was, is that the Lord told me to stay back and the people were sent over in the bus. And the Lord said that he would take care of the people. But they had to have an experience, so that they could really realize they were in a real message of present truth. And not just like the Adventist Bible studies. So they went on over and the guy drove the school bus and the promises and all. And all of a sudden the Volvo back end was filled up full of machine gun holes. Ha - blew up all the tires and stuff. So you know. So, if you want that kind of religion then that’s true religion. And if you don’t you can stay in your Laodicean condition and go ahead and talk about King David chucking rocks at a giant. I’m talking about religion that has put my life in danger over and over. You see a religion that God say’s “Don’t go this place, cause they’re trying to set you up.” Or a religion that say’s “go to this place, but I’ll get you out of it.” You see. That’s the kind of religion I’ve been in the past - since 1985.

Now look. Verse 5:

“He (the king of the north) shall recount his worthies (his great men): (cause they hear tidings out of the east and out the north. Now here is something that they don’t like.) they shall stumble in their walk; they shall make haste to the wall thereof, and the defence shall be prepared. The gates of the rivers shall be opened, and the palace shall be dissolved. And Huzzab (which means that which is established) shall be led away captive, she shall be brought, and her maids shall lead her the voice of doves, tabering upon (hearts) their breasts. But Nineveh is of old like a pool of water: yet they shall flee away. Stand, stand, they shall cry; but none shall look back.” (Nahum 2:5-8)

Something happens to Nineveh. The king of the north returns with [ ] to undertake away many. He recounts his soldiers and stuff and goes back against the Lamb and stuff and guess what happens? Guess what happens to him?

Male: He gets smucked.

He didn’t know who to expect this time.

“Take ye the spoil of silver, take the spoil of gold.” (Nahum 2:9a)

Guess who takes that spoil?

Male: God’s people.

That’s right.

“...for there is none end of the store and glory out of all the pleasant furniture. She is empty, and void, and waste: and the heart melteth, and the knees smite together, and much pain is in all loins, and the faces of them all gather blackness.” (Nahum 2:9b-10)

Male: Is that where I can detail what type of [ ] and weapons for seven years?

Yeah. You’re getting smart now.

Female: He is.

He’s gonna learn fast. He put away - he put away his pizza the other day.

Male: Ha, ha, now he’s going for it.

Now he’s gonna really get ravenous for his spiritual needs.

Male: Well ... he’s gonna surprise me there.

Well see. Doesn’t the city of Gog and Magog have [ ] spoken to thee by all my servants the prophets? Okay. So up pops the King of the north. You know why Gog and Magog is Gog and Magog? Because Gog and Magog have the sins [sense?] of Cain. And Cain and his family were all out there making musical instruments, living in the world and having a good time. Like Adventists. If you don’t follow present truth that’s your plot. You know. Sitting in the world and have a good time. You see? The son’s of Adam have always been on the move; earthly fighting against darkness. People think we’re weird. See, see this right here. This is it right here. Verse 13:

“Behold, I am against thee, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will burn (the) her chariots in the smoke.” (Nahum 2:13a)

So there you got it. Her chariots and her horses and all her weapons are to be burned for seven years. Now Ezekiel gives you more details you see? It says that I will cut off the voice of thy messengers and they shall no more be heard. It’s so clear. With inspiration you understand that God entitles America - Nineveh. Because it is the capitol of Assyria which is known as the one who authorized the Chaldeans. Isaiah 22 says that the land of the Chaldeans were not be an Assyrian found in it. For those who dwell in the wilderness where the woman fled - America. So now we see in this prophecy another key that opens up the mysteries pertaining to how the king of the north comes to his end and none shall help him. Want to learn what Habakkuk says about it?

Male: Can we just go back to verse seven?


Male: I don’t quite understand that.

Ok. Huzzab. This figurative explanation deals with the woman. Huzzab is feminine ok? I’ll explain it by using the book of Micah. Let’s turn to Micah real quick. God likens Assyria to a woman because she’s known as Babylon the Great. The Mother of Harlots. Ok? In Micah 7 we see this picture portrayed in another light. This messenger is symbolized as [Samson?]. Ok? Beginning reading Micah 7

Male: “Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits”. (Micah 7:1a)

This guy don’t feel to good about himself does he?

Male: “ the grape gleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit. The good man is perished out of the earth.” (Micah 7 1b)

How many men are good? None. Go ahead.

Male: “The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net.” (Micah 7:2)

I’m always trying to keep - now remember that catcher there with his net. Were gonna find out - were gonna look at Habakkuk here in a second, and find out what Habakkuk says about that net hunting.

Male: I had been reading [ ] about the bird in the net.

There always gonna try to catch the bird in the net but here’s the thing. Everybody tries to get somebody into religion for a reason. See like now. Ok, go ahead.

Male: “That they may do evil with both hands earnestly, the prince asketh and the judge asketh for a reward; and the great man, he uttereth his mischievous desire.” (Micah 7:3)

Nobody does nothing for nothing. Right?

Male: No.


Male “ they wrap it up (and weave it together). The best of them is [like] as a brier; the most upright is sharper then a thorn hedge.” (Micah 7:3b-4a)

This - this - this is about in the last days - about God’s people.

Male: “...the day of thy watchmen and thy (judgment) visitation cometh; now shall be their perplexity.” (Micah 7: 4b)

Now there gonna be crying to the rocks and mountains aren’t they? Go ahead. Trust in who?

Male: “Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom.” (Micah 7:5)

Can’t even trust your own sweetheart. Remember what happened to Sampson when he told Delilah the secret? Go ahead.

Male: “For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house.” (Micah 7:6)

I’ve experienced that let me tell you. Go ahead.

Male: “Therefore, I will look unto the LORD.....” (Micah 7:7a)

Who’s the man that gets on a mountain? Watch this. This is his personal experience. Go ahead.

Male: “...I will wait for the God of my salvation. My God will hear me. Rejoice not against me...” (Micah 7:7b-8a)

Against me, O mine enemy: when I shall fall. What does he do to him?

Male: “...when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.” (Micah 7:8b)

Go ahead.

Male: “I will bear the indignation of the Lord...” (Micah 7:9a)

Because I have sinned against him.

Male: I have sinned against him. Christ didn’t sin?

No that’s right. This guy did all the time.

Male: “...until he plead my cause and execute judgment for me.” (Micah 7:9b)

Well the Lord has a righteous cause. And the Lord is the one who told him about those daughters. The Lord’s the one who got him in trouble. The Lord told him the prophecy and he just fulfilled it that’s all. You see? And he’s punished for the iniquity of God’s people because they don’t listen to prophecy. God said to him in the chariot, I mean - like Isaiah had to walk down the street naked. I mean the poor guy. God told him to. Hosea married two prostitutes. I mean what can the guy do? Right? John had to go and be out to lunch with the fish I mean you know. What do you do? You can’t fight God. So God gives this guy a time to learn and what’s going to happen to him? [ ] and fall upon him. But that’s all right. Cause when this - this person kills him. God’s gonna [ ] to ride. You want to see God’s righteousness. Go ahead. What’s it say?

Male: “...and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness.” (Micah 7:9c)

His righteousness. His word. His truth. It was all written before anyway. Go ahead.

Male: “Then she that is mine enemy...” (Micah 7:10a)

She that is mine enemy shall see it. And shame shall come over her which said unto me, Where is the Lord, thy God! She’s such a nasty - female dog. Go ahead.

Male: “...mine eyes shall behold her: now shall she be trodden down as the mire of the streets.” (Micah 7:10b).

Umm humm.

Male: “In the days that thy walls are to be built...” (Micah 7:11a)

In the days of the decree to go forth to build the walls. The angel tells this young man that’s gonna [ ] the Lord. God says to him. Hey, Jerusalem is inhabited without walls. For the multitude of men a child therein. So what happened? The days that the walls were to be built they had to go back and build the walls of Jerusalem. Right? To measure the city and the temple and all those that dwelleth therein. What’s he told?

Male: “In the day that thy walls are to be built, in that day shall the decree be far removed.” (Micah 7:11)

Why is it far removed for? Cause what did the angel tell him in Zechariah 2?

Male: The city will be inherited without walls.

Yeah. Do you catch it? Do you see that? But what’s gonna happen then?

] Male: “In that day also he shall come even to thee from Assyria and from the fortified cities...” (Micah 7: 12a)

Uh hah. And whose coming to strap him down?

Male: “...and from the fortress even to the river...” (Micah 7:12b) Is it a stronghold that he has that he practices homosexual sin?

Female: What?

Yeah. Steve say’s - Steve’s already had studies on this.

Male: “In that day he also shall come even ...” (Micah 7: 12a)

From Assyria. Who comes? king of the north. You see. This guy. He gives them a special message.

Male: But I mean. How did you get ah - homosexuality in this...?

Well you’ve gotta see the other prophets.

Male: Oh. But I mean in twelve I didn’t see anything in twelve here.

I know because you don’t know the whole vision yet. Wait until we read Habakkuk. You know in Daniel 11 he is not a guy that desires women. We know that. He doesn’t like women. We’re gonna find in Habakkuk who he likes.

Male: .... because he likes to look upon the foreskins of the men or something?

Were gonna learn about what the king of the north is doing. Go ahead.

Male: “...and from the fortress even to the river, and from sea to sea, and from mountain to mountain. Notwithstanding the land and shall be desolate because of them that dwell therein... ” (Micah 7:12b-13a)

Because he who has all authority desolated them at one time anyway. Right? Taking all the food and everything

Male: For the fruit of their doings.

Yeah. In other words God’s gonna bring the Assyrian against [ ] nation, the Jews. Daniel 11 say’s so right? But when he hears this guy whose gonna bring the nation to the Lord - cause this guy sinned against God. When he hears this guy, what happens is this king of the north comes back in wearing mighty chains. He returns. Right? And there’s wicked counsel against this guy. But she - that’s Assyria, that wicked women, Nineveh, Huzzab. That’s the she - the woman is gonna be led away captive. Now you get the picture? She, the woman, Huzzab represents the harlot - Assyria. We’re gonna learn about this in Isaiah twenty-three. About Tyre. Tyre is a name give also to Assyria because it represents that great harlot of Zephaniah. Go ahead read.

Male: “Feed thy people with thy rod..” (Micah 7: 14a)

This guy rules. He beats them with the rod.. It’s a message of judgment. Go ahead.

Male: “...the flock of thine heritage..” (Micah 7: 14b)

He’s supposed to inherit these people because he raises them up doesn’t he? Ok?

Male: “...who dwell solitarily in the forest...” (Micah 7: 14c) I think I should have used another word for that. Wood.

Wood. Yeah.

Male: “ the days of Carmel: let them feed in Bashan and Gilead, as in the days of old.” (Micah 7:14b)

He brings a great message of Gilead doesn’t he? He rules over them with the truth doesn’t he? [ ] Go ahead.

Male: “According to the days of thy coming out of the land of Egypt will I shew unto him marvelous things”. (Micah 7:15)

And reveals great things to him.

Male: “The nations shall see and be confounded..” (Micah 7:16a)

Well they shut their mouths at him don’t they, after he’s killed and raised huh?

Male: “ all their might: they shall lay their hand upon their mouth, their ears shall be deaf. They shall lick the dust like a serpent, they shall move out of their holes like worms of the earth: they shall be afraid of the LORD our God, and shall fear because of thee”. (Micah 7:16b-17)

Who is a God like unto thee!

Male: “Who pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage”? (Micah 7:18a)

Remnant of his heritage. Do you want your sins forgiven? You better listen up. You better find out who that guy is that gonna bring the nation to the Lord.

Male: “...he [who] retaineth not his anger forever, because he delighteth in mercy”. (Micah 7:18b)


Male: “He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us...”. (Micah 7: 19a) He will subdue our iniquities.

He will stop you from sinning. He say’s so. That’s how people become righteous in the last days. They believe God can do it for em. He will cast thy.....

Male: That’s what I was asking earlier.


Male: I was asking you that earlier.

Well, we’re answering it now! (laughter)

Male: This fella has a name. (laughter)

Well, I’m gonna tell you the name of God in the scriptures. His names in the bible. Go ahead.

Male: “And thou wilt cast all their sins into the depth of the sea. Thou wilt perform the truth to Jacob, and the mercy to Abraham, which thou hast sworn unto our fathers from the days of old”. (Micah 7:19b-20)

Male: Is this the a.... take out of you a stony heart and put in a heart of clay?

] Ezekiel chapter thirty six. You gotta deal with her though first. So now you see who the woman is right? And the woman is Assyria. That explains what’s being Huzzab. But she’s taken captive cause look. Habakkuk - oh, this is so good. Now sure - now we’re on a straight road. Let’s find what Habakkuk say’s about these Chaldeans. Remember we read in Micah that they had them around with a net. Ok?

“The burden which Habakkuk the prophet did see. O LORD, how long shall I cry (unto thee), and thou wilt not hear! even cry unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save”. (Habakkuk 1:1-2)

Whose causing the violence? Whose causing the friction?

“Why dost thou show me iniquity, and cause me to behold grievance? for spoiling and violence are before me”. (Habakkuk 1:3a)

Who spoils who? Who causes violence? The king of the north does.

“And there are that raise up strife and cause contention”. (Habakkuk 1: 3b)

In other words like Isaiah say’s; they cause friction with the sparks of their own kindling. Right? What’s gonna happen to em? They’re gonna lie there in sorrow aren’t they?

“Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceedeth”. (Habakkuk 1:4)

The wicked are beating up on God’s people so the world think God’s people are the wicked. I mean. Poor Lorne over there. He heard some of the reports about me. I’m the one that’s the wicked. Unless you have your eyes wiped out properly and see the truth. I’m so wicked I’m showing you the prophecies and telling you, you better learn them or you’re going to hell. That’s what your parents didn’t like. They didn’t like being told they were gonna go to hell. Christ would never do that! Jesus say’s how can you escape hell? Cause they wouldn’t listen to his message pertaining to the prophecies. Whether ye cannot hear my speech he say’s seeing your of your father the devil. I mean how much more can Christ tell em?

“Behold ye among the heathen and, regard (God says) and wonder marvelously: for I will work a work in your days which ye will not believe, though it be told you” (Habakkuk 1:5)

About that guy up on the mountain and those women and that get pregnant and he’s gonna see his seed and there’s gonna be a woman that’s gonna marry the Lord the Creator. Even though you’re - if you’re a heathen you won’t believe it though it be told to you. That’s what God say’s. So if you don’t believe it you must be a heathen. But God’s people compare spiritual things with spiritual things. They see what all of the prophets teach and so therefore they come to the proper conclusion don’t they?

“For, lo, I raise up the Chaldeans, that bitter and hasty nation, which shall march through the breadth of the land, to possess the dwelling places that are not theirs”. (Habakkuk 1:6)

See that king of the north coming into Palestine? Takes all the other countries overflow?

“They are terrible and dreadful: their judgment and their indignities shall proceed of themselves”. (Habakkuk 1:7)

They have their own judgment. They think they’re great. You know? They think they’re somebody.

“Their horses also are swifter than leopards, and are more fierce than evening wolves: and their horsemen shall spread themselves, and their horsemen shall come from far; they shall fly as the eagle that hasteth to eat”. (Habakkuk 1:8)

The symbol of Assyria is eagles. Isn’t it?

“They shall come all for violence: their faces shall sup up as the east wind, and they shall gather the captivity as the sand”. (Habakkuk 1:9)

They take everybody captive. That’s what Daniel 11 say’s right?

“And they shall scoff at the king [kings] (ha,ha,ha,ha. They could care less about knowing him. Right?) and the princes shall be a scorn unto them: they shall deride every stronghold; for they shall heap dust, and take it”. (Habakkuk 1:10)

Man they get everything. Boy they get all the treasures of Egypt and Ethiopia. Whew! What a victory. But he hears something. Just like Nahum says. He recounts his words. Wait a second, he hears something. What? A King of the Jews? he say’s. A prince? Raised up? What?

“Then shall his mind change...” (Habakkuk 1:11a)

I’m not going to go over here and take over the East, he say’s. I’m going to go back over into Palestine and I’m gonna whip up on those people that are given me a hassle.

“... he shall pass over, and offend...” (Habakkuk 1:11b)

Guess who he offends? God.

“...imputing this his power unto his God”. (Habakkuk 1:11c)

Who is his God? Jesus Christ. Well praise God. We had victory today. We put those guys out. Hallelujah. Amen. Believe in Jesus Christ our personal saviour. That’s who they’re giving the glory to Jesus Christ. They’re knocking at those holy people. Remember? And they’re giving Jesus Christ the glory.

Male: But he goes into... he wakes up and everybody, and he leaves...

But he comes back because you see that is the time...

Male: Something Egypt does makes him go over there then.

Oh, he goes there because of the Middle East crisis. And he knocks out Egypt first of all because the Jews make war with them. The Jews are fixing to buck American troops. And in so doing America is going to have to take the offensive because America cannot - ah - well they can’t - can’t afford to loose Palestine an allied nation of Israel. But look what were doing. Were selling enema bags to Palestine, the Arabs, to pump up the Jews in the first place.

Male: To do what?

Pump up the Jews in the first place. It’s it’s it’s it’s a phrase.

Male: Ah, I don’t understand that.

Female: Do you know what pump up is?

Do you know what it is to give somebody an enema?

Male: Yeah.

To clean them out?

Male: Yeah.

Ok? The Arabs hate the Jews because they think that the West Bank and all that belongs to them.

Male: Ok.

They want Palestine. America is to be an alley with the Jews and yet we have been selling for years military weapons to the Arabs.

Male: Ok.

Who in turn chuck them at the Jews.

Male: Ok.

Ok? When this was uncovered here recently ... see the last few wars that Israel have had , especially in the West Bank? Man, the Jews are having a hard time. The Arabs seem to be getting more sophisticated. Used to boy. Used to shoot a gun at the Arabs and you’d have about maybe a four or five thousand troop of Arabs and ten or fifteen Jews would shoot at them and the Arabs would disband, and want to drop their guns and run. Very misorganized. But there not getting that way no more. They’re getting more technology and more advancement and there’s rumors that American troops along with Russian troops are training the Arabs. America will want to make a dollar at the risk of anybody’s throat. You see? America does it for money. Speaking as a dragon in other words.

But you see this King of the North hears tidings and he goes back over to offend. He’s got blood in his mouth Nahum say’s. Right? He’s a wicked counselor and he puts his victory in the name of his Christ. But you know what? Habakkuk say’s:

“Art thou not from everlasting, O LORD my God, mine Holy One? we shall not die”. (Habakkuk 1:12a)

He sees the vision. He knows that the people that are alive at that time will not die. God’s people will be scattered, but they will not be killed. “O Lord, thou hast ordained them for judgment”. (Habakkuk 1:12b) They’ll be likewise they’ll be many and they shall be drunken and when the Lord shall pass through he’s gonna what? Burn em up. It’s stubble fully dry. “And O mighty God, thou hast established them for correction. Thou art of purer eyes than to behold evil, and canst not look on iniquity: wherefore lookest thou upon them that deal treacherously...” (Habakkuk 1:12b - 13a) Remember the treacherous dealers who deal very treacherously? “and holdeth thy tongue when the wicked devoureth the man that is more righteous then he.”(Habakkuk 1:13b

Who is the man who devours do you think? I got an idea in Isaiah 57 you’ll find out. Who is the man they’re devouring? The guy up on the mountains. The one that brings good tidings. “And makest men as [the] fishes of the sea, as the creeping things, that have no ruler over them”. (Habakkuk 1:14) Let’s face it. Everyone of you in this room do what you want to do all of the time don’t you?

Male: um hum.

Even in your own religion. Your preacher doesn’t say anything like you be here Sunday morning cause we’re gonna clean out the toilets. He begs you to come to Church and call it some special name like - what is it Ray that they call that day when they have that - you know

Male: Oh yeah...

You know they make something. They beg people. “They take up all of them with the angle...” (Habakkuk 1:15a) Everyone goes around with a fishing pole. “they catch them in their net, and gather them in their drag: therefore the rejoice and are glad”. (Habakkuk 1:15b)

Male: Here’s that text Steve, Micah 7 verse two.

You see?

Male: The net?

Male: Um Hm.

“Therefore they sacrifice unto their net, and burn incense unto their drag; because by them their portion is fat, and their meat plenteous”. (Habakkuk 1:16) They use symbolic as something literal . Hey, people say how big is your church? I go two hundred million. What! And you don’t even have a building to worship in? I’d have to build a building bigger than the universe. You ain’t got no two hundred million! Yes I do too. You see, they’re not all around right now they’re asleep. But nevertheless, when they’re needed they’ll - they’ll come forth. Look what you do when you go to your Church. When you pay your tithes at Church what are you paying for? You’re paying a prostitute. You’re coming there for two hours out of the week, for a beautiful little woman there with stained glass windows and nice brick borders. You see? Nice carpet. You know. She’s all painted up real nice and neat looking good. Good air conditioning. A little bit of sweet song “Just as I am without one plea...”. You know.

Steve: And they always have the right sermon...

Let’s all bow for prayer. You know? Oh, the same routine. You get the same treatment for the same tithe each week. Huh? That’s what they do with prostitutes. You come get your weekly thrill. God likens her to a harlot. But where’s the religion that saves the body. Where’s the real knowledge of truth? What makes you love her more and more? You don’t. You hate her after a while. She’s just a slut. She’s a building that needs a face lift all the time. Paint her up, you know? Right? The church is what they use. The TV, the media, the sorcery, the witchcraft. And straight truth from the Bible they know nothing about it. You see?

“Shall they therefore empty their net, and not spare continually to slay the nations?” (Habakkuk 1:17)

The King of the North represents that religio-political-lamb riding beast that speaks as a dragon. The beast and it’s image is a image of a nation professing to follow God and yet uses military war weapons and tactics; living by the sword and will die by the sword to get what they want. Why does Jerry Falwell say that we need to build up our war armaments for when Russia’s not even a God-like nation? If God’s for America forget Russia. It’s stupid isn’t it? Habakkuk say’s he thinks he’s gonna fulfill this right? I mean. He’s just a prophet. He say’s

“I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon (my high) the tower,” (Habakkuk 2:1a) Remember the tower of the flock of Micah four? Right? The watchman is the prophet?

“...and will watch to see what he will say unto me, and what I shall answer when I am reproved”. (Habakkuk 2:1b)

He thinks he’s gonna save the King of The North himself right? Cause he’s not a chicken is he? He’s not a chicken like Isaiah forty... like Isaiah fifty is he? Fifty one right?

“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon the tables, that he may run that readeth it”. (Habakkuk 2:2) Oh, in other words Habakkuk is not gonna fulfill this prophecy. You see?

“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak”. (Habakkuk 2:3a) At the end of what? The appointed time.

“...and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry”. (Habakkuk 2:3b)

This vision is for the last day’s people. You see that already don’t you?

“Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him:” (Habakkuk 2:4a) In other words the great men and the mighty men and the free men are gonna cry unto the rocks and the mountains.

“... but the just shall live by his faith.” (Habakkuk 2:4b)

The faith in what? This prophecy.

“Yeah also, because he (the king of the north) transgresseth by wine”. (Habakkuk 2:5a)

Remember what it say’s in Micah? And why they were drunken. They have a great big party after they destroy Jerusalem. This guy’s really happy. I mean they got - they got this stupid guy out of the way you know. You know? They’re having a good time. People are comforted to know that they have plenty of wine and plenty of food to eat. Though the people in Palestine according to Joel had no food at all. They trying to starve them out. They want you to turn back to America. You see? Yeah cause he that transgresseth by wine, he is a proud man. This king of the north, sure he is proud. He imputes his power unto his God. He thinks God’s really with him.

“...neither keepeth at home, who enlargeth his desire as hell, and is as death, and cannot be satisfied, but gathereth unto him all nations and heapeth unto him all people”. (Habakkuk 2:5b)

Isn’t that amazing. Do you really think America will go into that form? Be the offensive nation? To take and heap up other nations? You’d better believe it.

“Shall not all these take up a parable against him, and say, Woe to him that increaseth that which is not his! how long? and to him that ladeth himself with thick clay!” (Habakkuk 2:6)

He makes himself into an idol doesn’t he? This guy thinks he’s Mr. Macho don’t he? This King of the North. Now watch. Verse seven. Mark this verse. I love this verse.

“Shall they not rise up suddenly that shall bite thee, and awake that shall vex thee, and thou shall be for booties unto them?” (Habakkuk 2:7)

Who’s gonna divide the spoil? Yeah you see. The army of Joel two, the great two hundred million, are the ones who call the great men and the mighty and the freemen who cry unto the rocks and mountains cause these guy’s - guess where they come from? How would you like to be drunken there having a good time talking to your buddies. And all of sudden these guys start crawling up out of the ground. Would you - wouldn’t you - would you look at your Bible and throw it down? And the sun and wipe your eyes real good?

Male: On the ground.

Yeah. There’s two hundred million of them

[train goes by outside]

Steve: ... a little Redeye...

Woman: Yeah

But is does say in Isaiah fifty-three that Egypt divides the spoil with the great and the strong right. Right? Who are the great and the strong? The two hundred million that have raised up out of the mountains of Israel. They’re all the dead prophets. They’re all the ones who died as martyrs for the truths sake. I mean they’ve gotta stand behind this guy, because this guy, the one who is dying, he’s just ratifying all that they foresaw in the future. He’s the same spirit that they had in their day. It’s is a big family affair you see? You can call it a family feud. Against the woman and her seed, the woman in Revelation twelve, remember? Against the King of the North and his seed. Look at his seed. Look at this guy.

“Because thou has spoiled many nations (God tells him), all the remnant of the people shall spoil thee; because of men’s blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein”. (Habakkuk 2:8)

The King of the North kills people. In the name of Christianity.

“Woe to him that coveteth, an evil covetousness to his house, that they may set his nest on high”. (Habakkuk 2:9a)

But he wants Mt. Zion too and it’s not his. Do you know who it belongs to? It belongs to that person on the mountain. That’s the one whose gonna inherit Mt. Zion.

“...that he may be delivered from the power of evil. Thou hast consulted shame to thy house...” (Habakkuk 2:9b-10a)

He’s an evil counselor. He thinks he’s gonna go ahead and set up his tabernacle on Mt. Zion. We’ll he’s just blown it. He’s taken God’s personal territory.

“... by cutting off many people, and hast sinned against thy soul”. (Habakkuk 2:10b)

Man wouldn’t you hate to be that guy?

“For the stone shall cry out of the wall, and the beam out of the timber shall answereth it. Woe to him that buildeth a town with blood, and stablisheth a city by iniquity!”. (Habakkuk 2:11-12)

The people who love the King of The North he can’t save them. That’ why Jim and Tammy Bakker - all those people giving them people money. They can’t give em - When you pay your tithes to the Adventist church, what can they give you? What can they give you Lorne?

Lorne: [ ]

Yeah you’re paying for that prostitute.

“Behold, is it not of the LORD of hosts that the people shall labor in the very fire”. (Habakkuk 2:13a)

Now this is God’s plan. You’re gonna be over there all right. You’re gonna be over there learning how to work for once. Work for nothing but as I said:

“... labor in the very fire, and people shall weary themselves for very vanity?” (Habakkuk 2:13b)

Male: How’s that?

By going over there and being scattered by political war and strife. Believe me, there is not much you can do but labor in the fire of vanity. Just sit and wait. You might as well sit and wait God say’s.

“For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea”. (Habakkuk 2:14)

[end of side 1]

Remember what it say’s in Isaiah fifty-four? This as the waters of Noah unto me... . That’s what it say’s in Isaiah fifty-four. Cause that girl [ ] shall reveal, hey! That’s what Isaiah forty say’s. Sure her husband’s been killed, but means that she is single now. She really loved the truth. She really loved that guy. She loved this guy because do you know what he could do? He could teach the bible like nobody in the world. And she had so many Bible studies with him and the scriptures came alive so clearly. You see, this woman was so much in love with the spirit of the truth that when everything came about and she did not get an offspring she’s very upset. Guess who she get’s to marry? The one who gave that carcass the spirit. It say’s in that day [ ]. So God speaks to the individual. Speaks through the individual and thou will know his name. Because God’s people know his name. His name is the Word of God and the truth that he speaks is nothing but Bible truth. The only way you can ever know Christ is to know the spirit of Christ which is in the truth. She immediately married the truth. She married Christ. Nuns are counterfeit of the truth again right? You become a nun, who are you supposed to marry?

Class: Christ.

So we see the Catholic church is a perfect counterfeit of what? The truth. Now:

“Woe unto him who giveth his neighbor drink”. (Habakkuk 2:15a)

Look what this guy does. Man he is a faggot. Look at this guy.

“...and [that] puttest thy bottle to him, and maketh him drunken also...” (Habakkuk 2:15b)

Remember, Nahum say’s they’re all drunk and having a good party. This King of the North while he’s having a good party, guess what he likes to do with his own men?

“...that thou mayest look on their nakedness! ” (Habakkuk 2:15c)

Man what a Homo!

“Thou art filled with shame for glory” God say’s: (Habakkuk 2:16a)

“...drink thou also, and let thy foreskin be uncovered”. God say’s.(Habakkuk 2:16b)

Pull yours out and look at it. You see we’re learning more about the King of the North than anyone knows. You know about his private habits and different things don’t we?

Male: It’s true.

But you know, he try’s to solicit me. He tells me he’ll save me from killing me if I play... tell him to go to hell. That’s what I tell him. Tell him I said go to hell. You see? You’ve never seen the Bible like this before have you? You son of the semen of Satan. Go to hell. So he say’s all right. It’s your choice. And you can tell I like girls or at least the guy in Isaiah fifty-three likes girls. The Song of Solomon speaks of him. All the prophecies talk about him especially the Psalms and David. The message who keeps the faith of my word, the patience of my word, I will open up the keys of David. I will open up these prophecies about David. I’ll show you all the Psalms. I’ll show you every last Psalm in the Bible that shows you that all the Psalms are talking about this King of the North. Man he’s a queer! He’s the one who keeps Sunday anyway. He’s the one who causes aids in the world anyhow. And he’s religious.

Male: He’s caused aids.


Male: He’s already alive.

Yes. He’s alive today. He’s working right now.

Steve: These are the last day’s.

Hey, we’re talking about a truth that’s gonna be quickly fulfilled with or without you. You see? This is serious. Either I’m lying and this whole Bible is wrong or wait a second we’re being judged by God’s word. I want to know about this queer. Boy, I want to avoid him.

“... the Lord’s right hand shall be turned unto thee, and shameful spewing shall be on thy glory”. (Habakkuk 2:16c)

This guy gets a kick out of looking at peoples foreskins. What a queer! But now wait a second. That’s all right. Because the guy he tries to solicit understands his problem. Because the guy he tries to solicit, he’s the guy that has a word to the wise. He’s the one who’s given the title the bird. He knows many homosexuals. He’s turned many homosexuals to righteousness by simply teaching the truth of the heavenly Mother and God’s true image. Remember the woman in Revelation twelve? But - Steve, I know a bunch of homosexuals. Right? We know some don’t we? That are a hundred percent into this message right?

Steve: Um Hm.

Guys that oh, well they say. Wow. Thank God for this message they say because otherwise without the knowledge of truth they would never know. This one guy’s trying get an operation. He’s not in the message but he’s - we’re working with him. God’s working with him. He say’s we’re the strangest people he’s ever met. He say’s I never met any Christians like you before. He say’s you know, you’re different. That’s the first step. He wants to have an operation so he can become a lesbian.

Woman: That’s crazy.

Steve: And that’s the truth.

Woman: He’s crazy.

But he loves his girlfriend though. But she’s a lesbian. He loves her so much.

Steve: She won’t have him unless she’s a les - he’s a girl.

Woman: Unless he’s a girl.

Male: Crazy world.

Steve: This is L.A.

But wait a second. This is all in L.A. Now you’re all up here but y’all learn up here you all know you’d all condemn guy just like that. But God say’s all right, you who are laid back there’s a spiritual foreskin God say’s. There’s a spiritual homosexuality. It’s called self. It’s called yanking the crank with you’re own spiritual opinions on things. Casting your seed to the wind. That’s what God say’s. God’s say’s my word and my truth, it comes from my mind. And the truth, which when planted in the heart, brings forth fruit. You see? It’s a spiritual truth. And so we can be guilty of homosexuality in the spiritual realm and so casting a stone at a person’s that’s guilty of it in darkness, we might be the first one guilty of it. Cause at the doors to the church, the whole world, all the sin’s are in light and are responsible for the church and it’s apostasy. So if we reject knowledge and truth, we’re in trouble.

“For the violence of Lebanon shall cover thee, and the spoil of beasts, which made them afraid, because of men’s blood, and for the violence of the land, of the city, and of all that dwell therein”. (Habakkuk 2:17)

The King of the North destroys Palestine, especially northern Palestine.

“What profiteth the graven image that the maker thereof hath graven it; the molten image, and a teacher of lies, that the maker of his work trusteth therein, to make dumb idols? Woe unto him that saith to the wood, Awake; to the dumb idol stone. laid over with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in the midst of it. But the Lord is in his holy temple: let all the earth (shut up - before him) keep silence before him”. (Habakkuk 2:18-20)

The prayer of Habakkuk the prophet upon Shigionoth. Isn’t this incredible?

Male: It is.

Male: He said he’s been hanging in there.

Hey Chet?

Male: You won’t fall asleep on the road will you?

Oh no, God will preserve him. Chet, it’s serious. Now you know why a year ago, people were told to come to Texas? Now you know why the foolish virgins can’t get this extra oil soon enough? You see the extra oil is additional light oil in regards to prophecy. It develops character. Especially when God say’s I’ll remove your sins. So if you don’t know what the prophecy is about what God is gonna do to save your soul, you’re not gonna have no good character. To receive it in the spirit of truth is receiving the plan of salvation as it is in Christ. This next psalm here in chapter three say’s the Lord will make my feet like hind feet. He’ll put me upon my high places. This person also gets on the mountains. All the prophets said I’m gonna get on the mountains. Each prophet thought they were the one. But they were told by God that no, it’s somebody else.

Male: Down the road.

Down the road. So now were at the end of the road and now we say all these guys will be on the mountains. Because when they kill the bird, remember Isaiah tells us about the bird? God has a mighty army that will stand in defense to what you’re hearing right now.

Steve: The Bible gives the number. Two hundred million. Revelation 19.

And that’s what brings the fall of Babylon. These guy’s, literally, we’re gonna tear em up. All the unbelievers. All those who had a chance to know the truth. For the rest of the world...

Male: We’re gonna be up on a higher plane watching all this take place?

We’ll, if you’re faithful and you receive the knowledge of truth in your heart, and you bring forth fruit with it, you’ll be the one killing.

Male: Killing?

Steve: With the word. With a sword.

Male: A sword?

I mean let’s face it.

Male: That’s the one that’s, that’s the text, then ah, where they fall on the sword whether or not...


Male: Wounded.

Yeah. We can’t be hurt at that time. For instance, here’s the way God sees it. God’s in heaven and he has a church on earth. Accepts millions of dollars. Sit’s around and has a general conference. He sees everybody here, that they all come together. They all bow down and they say, Oh God, show us the way thou would have us to go. They all come together. They argue, f uss and fight. They all separate themselves just as confused as they were before. Why didn’t God tell them what to do?

Male: Good question.

Cause, God don’t speak to them in the first place. They don’t have a prophet. They all are islands. Individual - independent individuals who do it their own way because they’re all conference leaders, and presidents, and secretaries, and blah blah. But now. So God looks up there and there’s a world that’s dying - of aids. God has a message and the church will not listen to it. So God brings on the scene this prophet, Shigionoth. It means “turbulent lyric’s It’s music. It’s a song. All the prophets talk about it. It’s a song. It’s a music. It’s a ....

Male: You ought to give em a little (hit’s table like drums).

Female: Yeah.

Male: He will in a few minutes.

Female: Oh, I thought he was gonna play.

Male: Oh, I did too.

Female: Why don’t you use your guitar Vernon?

I don’t care if it sound’s good. It’s all right.

Male: Ok.

This was just a - a ... . Bring out the guitars.

Female: Where do you want ... over here.

You people. You do it for your human glory. I do it just to get the message out. This tape was done in a little room about this size. A little bit bigger. With John and with a guitar and a keyboard.

Steve: And a mono ah cassette recorder.

A little Sony cassette recorder. You know. >P> Steve: So it’s not stereo or anything like ...

Female: Sounds very flat.

So what! Pretend it’s a live concert.

Male: Do you want me to turn this thing off?

No. We didn’t get started on one I don’t think.

Female: You mean a best seller at number one?

Male: No.

Female: Oh.

You remember in Revelation seven? Remember Revelation ten? The angel.

Female: (Reciting Revelation 10:7 in background.) You remember that?

Now with this message - see in the parable of Luke, God say’s to the first three calls; to the first, second, and third angel, he says none of those men will taste of my supper. Go to the highways and the byways. And so the messenger first goes to the church and gets the carnal people out. Most of them are wicked in the first place. The ones not highways and hedges. You know? They never knew this was in the Bible.

Male: But you knew it was there.

Here comes the wedding invitations to supper. And that was still not enough. So then he goes out and tells anybody who will come in. I don’t care how bad they are. God says go and impel them - force them to come God say’s. That my house may be full. And so God’s gonna finish the work without these crazy guys.

(Play’s a music tape)

.... I can enter into God’s rest. So the works were finished from the foundation of the world. You see? The work of God is his word. Jesus said this is the work of God that ye believe on him whom God has sent. That’s what John say’s. Now he meant that on Zechariah fourteen where you have a prophecy which is astounding. So when you get your free time read that. And now were trying to find out why in Zechariah fourteen all this happens. And we’re gonna find out why this guy get’s killed in Isaiah chapter fifty-three right? And when we know this we’ll enter into rest, because we’ll believe the rock, and we’ll follow the rock. We’ll have peace. Because the truth will set us free. Ok now. So we learned in Isaiah chapter forty ah- what was we looking at?

Female: Four.

Male: Isaiah forty-four verse twenty-two.

Ok. we want to begin with verse ah twenty-two. What has God done to these people? What’s it say there?

Male: “I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee”. (Isaiah 44:22)

Here this. That agonizing in pain, and realizing one day that God redeemed you of all your sins. You didn’t even know it, and you didn’t even accept it. Because, God did something for you, and sent a messenger to tell you about it, and you rejected the messenger. You’re calling God a liar, and God has to show you another one who did it for you, but yet, it don’t do no good. Now can you imagine something like that? Having a free gift and you open the door and there’s the a Purolator guy, you know and drives that little van around. What do you call those guys, Purolator?

Male: Yeah.

And you say what are you doing? And he say’s here’s a package for you. And you sock him in the mouth. You don’t like the guy. You know. And in the package was, you know, a million dollars or something. Ok now. Here’s a prophecy where God had done something for the people. God had told them that they shouldn’t be idol worshippers and in verse twenty-two say’s: I have blotted out as a thick cloud thy transgressions. Now God sent his son and what does God cause - want them to do? Return unto me, for I have redeemed thee. They are forgiven before they are even reconciled to God. The message is that I have forgiven you of all your sins. Now why don’t you come and return unto me? Read the verse again. You must understand this verse.

Male: “I have blotted out, as a thick cloud, thy transgressions, and, as a cloud, thy sins: return unto me; for I have redeemed thee”. (Isaiah 44:22)

Um hm. I have blotted out the transgressions of thy sins. Return unto me for I have redeemed thee. So if they don’t accept this message, how can they claim what God has already done for them? You see? That angel from the east has a seal of the living God. If you don’t listen to the angel, you’ll never know what that seal is. Read on.

Male: “Sing, O ye heavens; for the Lord hath done it”. (Isaiah 44:23a)

For the heavens know. In a half hour the heavens know what’s happened. You see?

Male: Um Hm.

The heavens are there with the lord under the judicial system of judgment. So they know what’s going on. They’re happy about it. Now when the inhabitants of the world learn about it, that’s the next question, will they listen? Go ahead.

“...shout, ye lower parts of the earth: break forth into singing, ye mountains, O forest, and every tree therein: for the Lord hath redeemed Jacob, and glorified himself in Israel. Thus saith the Lord that maketh all things; that stretch forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by himself: That frustrateth the tokens of the liars...”. (Isaiah 44:23b-25a)

All these private interpreters mega dividers mad and all the theorists mad. I mean here you have evidence for the past several years given to somebody on how to become perfect and how to overcome your sins, and how to do all these things and how to be sanctified. What happened to message here that God’s forgiven them anyway? I mean there’s no greater perfection then Christ. Christ is only perfect and he’s the word of God. Now let’s pretend this message is not a message applicable to today. Let’s pretend this message is just something ancient. No wonder God’s so mad at the Jews for rejecting a truth like this. God’s own word forgives them. Psalms say’s blessed the man in whom the Lord will not imputeth iniquity. These guy’s are forgiven. Scott free. Do you know why? Because God say’s so. The word say’s so. And they wouldn’t listen to that word made flesh and what did they do to that word?

Male: Killed it. Killed him.

Yeah. So it’s forever settled about what’s right and only God’s word is righteous. Only God’s word is perfect. Now you get the picture? So whatever God’s word say’s that must be perfect. And it must be our only salvation. The word that condemns us is the same one that turns around and say’s well I’ve forgiven you anyway. So let’s understand this truth. Let’s understand this mystery.

Female: Cyrus.

Come here son.

Female: Come here.

Come inside.

Male: Yeah, that’s a - that’s a gift that’s pretty - nearly unbelievable.

This message is unbelievable. That’s why is such a test. I mean even the Baptists learned one thing, once saved always saved. And when the message comes I have saved you already. Just do this and do that and do this. I mean they won’t believe it so they’ll be damned cause they do not know the word. So the message states. I am God the word who has blotted out thy transgressions as thick clouds:

“That frustrateth the tokens of the liars, and maketh diviners mad; that turneth wise men backward, and maketh their knowledge foolish; that confirmeth the word of his servant...” (Isaiah 44:25-26a)

Now this servant God sends to bear this message; God confirms it. It’s in the word, The word is Christ. Christ confirms the word of the living prophets because they will only speak by the spirit of the dead prophets which are living in Christ. The word must be harmonious, pure, and true as Christ only is harmonious, pure, and true.

“...and performeth the counsel of his messengers...”. (Isaiah 44:26b)

All these prophets spoke of this event. So God has a servant and this servant is to testify of Christ, the word. The hard cold facts of inscribed truth - the word that God says performed the counsel of his messengers. And what do the messengers counsel? We’ve read a bunch of them so far haven’t we? They all talk about Jerusalem don’t they? Well so does this messenger and so does God.

“that saith to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be inhabited; and to the cities of Judah, Ye shall be built, and I will raise up the decayed places thereof: That saith to the deep, Be dry, and I will dry up thy rivers...”. (Isaiah 44: 26c-27)

God’s gonna dry up the ocean do you know that? Wait till you read the rest of the prophecies. You think Zechariah’s’ incredible? Can you imagine people going from New York to the - what river is - what river is it - the Mediterranean?

Male: The Atlantic.

Huh? The Atlantic and the Mediterranean? To go back to Israel? Pretty good jog isn’t it? Three thousand miles is that - thirteen ...

Male: Three or four thousand.

Oh it’s more than that. More than that to Israel. to Israel it’s more then that.

Male: From New York to a - it’s three to four thousand.

It’s more than that. It takes thirteen hours to fly.

Female: It takes fourteen hours to get to Hawaii from there.

Male: To the end of the Mediterranean or to the first part? Cause it’s about four thousand...

It takes how many hours to fly to Hawaii?

Male: It takes about five - four and a half, five hours.

That’s what I thought.

] Female: [ ]

Yeah I know.

Male: From here it’s ten hours.

So it has to be over six thousand miles.

Male: It’s a ways. It’s a ways yeah.

Half way around the world is where it is. Ok? Twenty-four thousands miles in the world - around the world.

Male: Then it would be twelve thousand miles.

Yeah. Ok now.

“(And I will bring up) I will dry up thy rivers: That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd...” (Isaiah 44: 27b- 28a)

Now here’s the key. That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd. Now we learned in Ecclesiastes twelve that the word to the wise are given by what? One shepherd. Know what we learned the other night? Remember that? Ok.

“and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid”. (Isaiah 44:28b)

Now here’s the key point.

“ Thus saith the Lord to his annointed...” (Isaiah 45:1)

In the Hebrew the anointed means what?

Male: Messiah

Messiah. The Hebrew word for anointed one means - is Meshiach, or Messiah. In the Hebrew this would read - Thus saith the Lord to his Messiah - to Cyrus. Cyrus is a Persian word for sun, s-u-n or shepherd. Cause they considered a son as being the shepherd of the day. You see? Now you realize what Malachi says,

“...the Sun of righteousness will arise with healing in his wings.” (Malachi 4:2)

Right? S-u-n

“... whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee...” (Isaiah 45:1-2a)

Who goes before him?

Male: The Lord.

“...and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in asunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and {the} hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.” (Isaiah 45:2-3)

So this person Cyrus has to be converted doesn’t he? Does he not? Ok? God does all this for Cyrus that Cyrus may know what?

Male: He’s the guy ...

“For Jacob my servant’s sake and for Israel, mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name:” (Isaiah 45:4a)

So God has called this person for his people’s sake right?

“I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.” (Isaiah 45:4b)

This person never knew this God before. Now notice, God has what him? Surnamed him. What is a surname?

Male: Last name.

So his first name could be ah Ferdinand as far as we know right? There’s a great mystery. The surname here is a last name. So you don’t know what his first name is. But the surname’s a surname. Now take special notice of the next few verses.

“I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know...” (Isaiah 45: 5- 6a)

Who may know?

Male: His people.

Judah and Israel.

“... from the rising of the sun (which is east right?) and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace and create evil. I the Lord do all these things.” (Isaiah 45: 6b-7)

Remember that angel of Revelation 10 that comes down with a rainbow and a cloud? He brings a little book and he opens it doesn’t he. Right? So this calling of Cyrus to his work by God is the message of righteousness.

“Drop down, ye heavens from above, and let the skies poor down righteousness...” (Isaiah 45:8a)

It’s called the latter rain.

“... let the earth open and let them bring forth salvation...” (Isaiah 45:8b)

So how can there be salvation in God talking to a man and surnaming him Cyrus? Remember, this is the liberator of God’s people. Right?

“... and let righteousness spring up together: I the Lord have created it.” (Isaiah 45:8b)

This is the God’s creation. It’s God’s righteousness. That’s what it is. I have blotted out as a thick cloud thy transgression, is the message. But who does God raise up to give his people that message? The servant. And what’s the servants name?

Male: Cyrus.

Do you all understand that? Everybody understand that clearly? And Cyrus also confirms the word of the messengers. Cyrus must also perform what all the other messengers have said. Right? Pertaining to building up the walls of Jerusalem. Now notice.

“Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! ” (Isaiah 45:9a)

Who has made Cyrus?

Male: The Lord.

Do you think it’s easy for a man to accept a message from God whom he has never known?

Male: I don’t think so.

Especially when God talks to him audibly huh? Would that be easy for you to go in your room one night, and pull your clothes off for a shower, and all of a sudden a voice comes out of the faucet and starts talking to you? Huh?

Male: I’d think that I was crazy or something.

What - what if you turned on the water in the shower and all of a sudden it said, Drop down ye waters from above, let the faucets pour out righteousness. I the Lord have created it. Huh? You know. Sh- and - and the songs of blessing - showers of blessing starts being heard in your room or in the bathroom right? I mean let’s face it. Let’s be realistic now. This guy is freaked out isn’t he? Ok? He’s - this - Cyrus has an experience which none - very few and far in between have had. Did you ever had an experience like this Steve?

Steve: Never.

How about you Steve?

Steve: No.

Now God tells this person I have called thee. I have surnamed thee meaning I have given you a what?

Male: Last name.

Which is what kind of a name?

Male: A name.

What kind of a though is it?

Male: { }

It’s a family name.

Male: A family name.

It’s a family name. Remember we introduced the subject as the time when Cyrus was born again right? God says:

“Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker. Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth.” (Isaiah 45:9a)

Now what is a pot? It’s a clay vessel isn’t it. What’s a potsherd though?

Male: It’s a piece of it I think.

Yeah. When you break a pot and have a piece of it, it’s worthless. So now, Cyrus is permitted to strive with anybody of his own rank right? He can argue with you over mechanics all day long. He can talk to you about what’s the best motorcycle to ride. That’s fine. But one thing that Cyrus is told no to do is to strive with who?

Male: God


Male: Maker

“Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou?...” (Isaiah 45:9b)

You know Cyrus is saying God there must be a mistake. I mean, you know. I mean, I’m a heathen - ah -you know. I am a sinner and you know. And ah - besides ah - I’m a wicked person. And you know ah. I’m in this for myself. And you know. God say’s, I don’t want to hear no backtalk. Right?

“... or thy work, He hath no hands?” (Isaiah 45: 9c)

God’s saying, “Don’t tell me what I’m to do.” Isaiah 40 say’s:

“Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, or being his counsellor hath taught him?” (Isaiah 40:13)

Or led him in the path of judgment. Who instructed him? So Cyrus has no choice does he? Does he?

Male: No.

Cyrus has been given a surname which is what kind of name Steve?

Steve: A last name. A family name.

Hey, God is speaking to Cyrus is that not correct Judy?

Judy: Yup.

God is telling Cyrus to quit curling and screwing his face up right? To stop his attitude right? Woe unto him. Ooohh! God say’s to Cyrus. Now God is getting serious right? Remember how God mad - God gotten mad - mad at Moses? Say’s that the Lord’s anger was kindled against Moses, because Moses kept saying well I can’t speak and all that. Moses was trying to worm out of it too wasn’t he? Wasn’t he? Wasn’t he Brother { }?

Brother { } He Sure was.

Yeah, Sister tried to worm out of it didn’t she? Right? The two other gentlemen tried to worm out of it and God let them and they were lost weren’t they? You don’t understand the fearfulness of being called to prophetic office. God says:

“Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou?...” (Isaiah 45:10a)

So, God is telling Cyrus don’t tell your father what begettest thou. Right? So in other words God is telling Cyrus that God is his what?

Male: Maker.

Male: His father.

His father. Cyrus has been begotten into God by what power do you think?

Male: The Holy Spirit?

Well that’s how your born again isn’t it? Right? Now people say, “Vernon you teach the Holy Spirits feminine and your blaspheming.” Well they don’t know nothing. Their ignorant. Their stupid. They’ve never seen the invisible world. They don’t know what their talking about. They don’t realize that the King James calling the Spirit a he and a it then something’s wrong. Translators have hid a truth about God. But here’s a message where God is telling Cyrus:

“Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?” (Isaiah 45:10)

Now what woman do you think is brought to view here?

Male: The Holy Spirit.

Cyrus is a man made out of flesh and blood and he didn’t know the truth about the eternal world. And he didn’t realize that his spirit is not man made. Yeah, the flesh is man made. It comes from sex. But the spirit is only given from God. That’s what David say’s in Psalms 139. And the spirit which comes from God comes from God, the Elohim. God say’s, Let US - plural, make man in OUR image, after our likeness, and let them have dominion. We read in Proverbs 8 and 9 the other day didn’t we? So here’s a wonderful object lesson to look at. It’s God speaking to Cyrus. It’s God telling Cyrus, “Woe unto him that saith unto his father, What begettest thou? Now how does a father beget a child?

Male: Goes into the woman.

Well, this is a mystery. Did - how did the woman bring forth this child? Through the womb. Let’s look.

“Thus saith the Lord, The Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons...” (Isaiah 45:11a)

Plural. Oh, well you see Cyrus is the Son of God cause God say’s so. And those who believe Cyrus’ word are believing whose word?

Male: God’s word.

And they too have the same spirit as Cyrus has because Cyrus is born of what spirit? What spirit begot Cyrus?

Male: The Lord’s spirit.

God’s spirit. Now just to prove a point. In Isaiah 48 we learned that Cyrus is contending with the people and God say’s in verse 16 of Isaiah 48. What does it say?

Male: “Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that is was, {their I am}:” (Isaiah 48:16)

There am I. There I am in the scriptures the person say’s. Look there. Who has declared these things Isaiah 40 say’s. There am I. And now the Lord God which is who? The Father. And his what?

Male: Spirit.

Has sent me. Well who’s the spirit?

Male: Mother.

It’s the woman. If your born of the spirit your born of the woman. Your born of the heavenly woman. And those who find her find life Proverbs 8 and 9 say’s. Right?

Male: Right.

If your born the first time out of a woman’s womb and your supposed to be born again then the earthly carnal is just a symbol of something heavenly. So if when - if were symbolic of God the Father and God the Son then what’s your excuse Judy for being in the world? You must be a symbol of what?

Judy: Carnal.

Huh? carnal!

Judy: Oh, oh, what’s my excuse for being in the world?

Your not listening. Your symbolic of the glory of Steve. Which the Spirit is the glory of the Father. So what is the Father’s glory. His power to create. So how can a man create life?

Male: Only through the woman.

Through the woman. Now this is not the point. The point is Cyrus is born again, is he not?

Male: Right.

Let’s see what kind of trouble Cyrus has now. He’s born of the Father and of the Mother and God say’s. “Don’t strive with me boy.” Ask me concerning my sons and the work of my hands, Command ye me. Ok? Now you know the Father created. But it say’s then the spirit of God breathed into his nostrils. God breathed into his nostrils the spirit of life. We have two parts, the dust and spirit. Now notice.

“I have made the earth (verse 12), and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded. I have raised him up in righteousness...” (Isaiah 45:12-13a)

Whose been raised up in righteousness?

Male: Cyrus.

And I will direct fifty percent of his ways.

Class: All his ways

“...he shall build my city, and he shall let go my captives, not for price nor reward, saith the Lord of hosts. Thus saith the Lord, the labour of Egypt, and the merchandise of Ethiopia and of the Sabeans, men of stature,{strong guys} shall come over to thee, and they shall be thine: they shall come after thee; in chains they shall come over, and they shall fall down unto thee, and they shall make supplication unto thee...” (Isaiah 45:13b-14a)

They worship this guy Cyrus don’t they? Why?

“...saying surely God is in thee; and there is none else, there is no God.” (Isaiah:45 14b)

Now why do they do that to Cyrus for? Because Cyrus has been born again has he not? God is gonna use something with Cyrus - do something with Cyrus that God has never done with anyone person since the foundation of the world. Let’s find out what it is. After Cyrus is told this he freaks out. He say’s:

“Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour.” (Isaiah 45:15)

Where’s God hiding at?

Male: In His word.

Where’s God hiding at? In Cyrus. The truth is in Cyrus. I mean Cyrus is born of the spirit. And being born of the spirit he has the same blood as his father. Meaning that what his Father has been he also progenerates that same nature does he not? The Father being truthful, Cyrus being born again cannot be anything but truthful. It being God’s word Cyrus can only by the same spirit of his Father point back to the what? The word. Let’s find out what happens. God say’s:

“They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together that are makers of idols.” (Isaiah 45:16)

Cyrus is not an idol. Cyrus is the Son of God. Do you know why? God say’s so. There’s a difference isn’t there? It is Cyrus that knows about the sons of God. Do you know why? Because God commands him to ask. So do you see the difference between the sons of God and the sons of men? The sons of God are those who are born by his word. The sons of men are born by the flesh and know nothing. There the ones who are ignorant and know nothing of the future and which it holds.

“But Israel shall be saved in the Lord with an everlasting salvation...” (Isaiah 45:17a)

And God’s word is forever.

“Ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded world without end.” (Isaiah 45:17b)

Those who believe God’s word will never come to an end. Those who believe God’s word know that God’s called Cyrus to a position. And what is that position Steve?

Steve: Ask the question again.

God has called Cyrus to a position. What is that position?

Steve: To be his son.

God say’s point blank.

Steve: He say’s you are my son, I have called you ...

By my name.

Steve: Yeah.

Surnamed you. You’ve got a family name now boy. No wonder the angel from the east has the seal of the living God. In Revelation 14 and the 144,000 what do they have in their foreheads?

Male: A seal.

The Father’s name. Christ say’s he has a new name and nobody knows it but he himself. But his name’s the Word of God. And those who receive the Word of God in it’s clarity understand why Malachi say’s the s-u-n of righteousness shall arise with healings in his wings. Cyrus means sun or shepherd. Verse 28 of forty -four:

“Thus saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd...” (Isaiah 44:28a)

Cyrus being the s-u-n is also the s-o-n. What is the shepherd? Cyrus? {spoken to Cyrus Howell} Ok. Now, God say’s here verse 18:

“For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens: God himself that formed the earth...” (Isaiah 45:18a) and not made it.

How did God make the heavens and the earth? His word. How did God make Cyrus His son?

Male: His word.

The word. Who’s gonna call God a liar?

Male: Not me.

“...he heath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited...” (Isaiah 45:18:b)

Now God must be giving Cyrus a message. Cause Cyrus has a message of truth and that message is the word of God and that word is Christ. If you don’t believe the word of God you don’t believe Christ. And that word is perfect and that word will judge you in the end will it not Steve?

Steve: It sure will.

“I am the Lord, and there is none else.” (Isaiah 45:18c)

God who made all things by his word, that’s my God. Cyrus is the son of the word. Cyrus is the son of Christ. The Bible say’s so and the Bible is the word. And the Bible was made flesh two thousand years ago and they heard him. So what do you think will happen if we reject this word today?

“I have not spoken in secret, in the dark {God say’s} in a dark place of the earth: I said have said not unto the seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I the Lord speak righteousness, I declare things that are right.” (Isaiah 45:19)

This is truth. This is right.

“Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are escaped of the nations...” (Isaiah 45:20a)

How do you escape the beast and his image. How do you escape the nations today? How do you escape the image of this beast? How do you escape Babylon?

Male: With his word.

Believe in the word. And those who receive this message can see clearly that God has called Cyrus to be his son. Therefore, they realize that thus saith the Lord to Cyrus, Cyrus is gonna do something because God say’s so. And therefore, your private theory about the end of the world, like the beast and the image teaches, you’re escaped out of Babylon. You know the scripture will deliver you from the deceptions in the last days. God will finish the mystery as he declared to who?

Male: The prophets.

Male: His servants the prophets.

And if you know all the prophets, then you’ll know that God confirms the word of his servants and performeth the counsel of all His messengers. It saith about Jerusalem. All of the prophecies we’ve studied so far right guys? have talked about Jerusalem haven’t they?

Male: Yes.

So let’s read on.

“...they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their graven image and pray unto a god that cannot save.” (Isaiah 45:20b)

That’s the biggest piece of wood right up there. Rex Humbard, Oral Roberts, Francis Schaefer, ha you know, Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell...

Male: Jimmy Swaggart.

Oh, especially Swaggart. Right? They don’t know the future do they?

“Tell ye, and bring them near; yeah, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? Have not I the Lord? and there is no God else beside me a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.” (Isaiah 45:21)
