In the past, I have written much concerning the last Day of the 7-Day Feast of Tabernacles, a time of great joy and “vacation” for the members of God's Church. The Feast week symbolizes the 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth known as the Millennium. During this time we leave home and dwell in booths (temporary dwellings) for seven days, to teach us that we are strangers and pilgrims on this earth, looking forward to a New Heavens and New Earth. Today is yet another Holy day. It is known as the 8th Day of the Feast, but in all reality, it is a separate holiday called THE LAST GREAT DAY, and this day has a very important message. It is called in the Bible a special Sabbath Day. It is to be treated as any Sabbath. We are not to work, and we are to hold a sacred church service. Leviticus 23:36, 39, . . . “on the eighth day shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly [margin: "day of restraint"]; and ye shall do no servile work therein . . . on the eighth day shall be a sabbath.”

1 After this, Jesus stayed in Galilee, going from village to village. He wanted to stay out of Judea where the Jewish leaders were plotting his death. 2 But soon it was time for the Feast of Tabernacles (tents), 3 and Jesus' brothers urged him to go to Judea for the celebration. "Go where your followers can see your miracles!" they scoffed. 4 "You can't become a public figure if you hide like this! If you can do such wonderful things, prove it to the world!" 5 For even his brothers didn't believe in him. 6 Jesus replied, "Now is not the right time for me to go. But you can go anytime, and it will make no difference. 7 The world can't hate you, but it does hate me because I accuse it of sin and evil. 8 You go on. I am not yet ready to go to this Feast, because my time has not yet come." 9 So Jesus remained in Galilee. 10 But after his brothers had left for the Feast, Jesus also went, though secretly, staying out of public view. 11 The Jewish leaders tried to find him at the festival and kept asking if anyone had seen him. 12 There was a lot of discussion about him among the crowds. Some said, "He's a wonderful man," while others said, "He's nothing but a fraud, deceiving the people." 13 But no one had the courage to speak favorably about him in public, for they were afraid of getting in trouble with the Jewish leaders. 14 Then, midway through the Feast, Jesus went up to the Temple and began to teach. 15 The Jewish leaders were surprised when they heard him. "How does he know so much when he hasn't studied everything we've studied?" they asked. 16 So Jesus told them, "I'm not teaching my own ideas, but those of God who sent me. 17 Anyone who wants to do the will of God will know whether my teaching is from God or is merely my own. 18 Those who present their own ideas are looking for praise for themselves, but those who seek to honor the one who sent them are good and genuine. 19 None of you obeys the law of Moses! In fact, you are trying to kill me." 20 The crowd replied, "You're demon possessed! Who's trying to kill you?" 21 Jesus replied, "I worked on the Sabbath by healing a man, and you were offended. 22 But you work on the Sabbath, too, when you obey Moses' law of circumcision. (Actually, this tradition of circumcision is older than the law of Moses; it goes back to Abraham.) 23 For if the correct time for circumcising your son falls on the Sabbath, you go ahead and do it, so as not to break the law of Moses. So why should I be condemned for making a man completely well on the Sabbath? 24 Think this through and you will see that I am right." 25 Some of the people who lived there in Jerusalem said among themselves, "Isn't this the man they are trying to kill? 26 But here he is, speaking in public, and they say nothing to him. Can it be that our leaders know that he really is the Messiah? 27 But how could he be? For we know where this man comes from. When the Messiah comes, he will simply appear; no one will know where he comes from." 28 While Jesus was teaching in the Temple, he called out, "Yes, you know me, and you know where I come from. But I represent one you don't know, and he is true. 29 I know him because I have come from him, and he sent me to you." 30 Then the leaders tried to arrest him; but no one laid a hand on him, because his time had not yet come. 31 Many among the crowds at the Temple believed in him. "After all," they said, "would you expect the Messiah to do more miraculous signs than this man has done?" 32 When the Pharisees heard that the crowds were murmuring such things, they and the leading priests sent Temple guards to arrest Jesus. 33 But Jesus told them, "I will be here a little longer. Then I will return to the one who sent me. 34 You will search for me but not find me. And you won't be able to come where I am." 35 The Jewish leaders were puzzled by this statement. "Where is he planning to go?" they asked. "Maybe he is thinking of leaving the country and going to the Jews in other lands, or maybe even to the Gentiles! 36 What does he mean when he says, 'You will search for me but not find me,' and 'You won't be able to come where I am'?" 37 On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, "If you are thirsty, come to me! 38 If you believe in me, come and drink! For the Scriptures declare that rivers of living water will flow out from within." 39 (When he said "living water," he was speaking of the Spirit, who would be given to everyone believing in him. But the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet entered into his glory.) 40 When the crowds heard him say this, some of them declared, "This man surely is the Prophet." 41 Others said, "He is the Messiah." Still others said, "But he can't be! Will the Messiah come from Galilee? 42 For the Scriptures clearly state that the Messiah will be born of the royal line of David, in Bethlehem, the village where King David was born." 43 So the crowd was divided in their opinion about him." (John 7 NLT version)

Most of our readers probably have never heard of the Feast of Tabernacles, but
it is in the Bible! In fact, this week meaning to God is so important that the Bible predicts that after Jesus returns to this earth, he will punish all who refuse to keep this feast! Read on for the proof. Again, like for the Day of Atonement, I am going to use the writing of Herbert Armstrong concerning this holiday. He does the subject much better than I can. The only difference that I have with his argument is the date he and most of the other feast keeping churches follow. Since they follow the Jewish calendar, and not the calendar of Moses (e-mail us for proof on the true calendar) and Jesus, they are often following the feast days on the wrong days. I am not sure if God is all that worried about this however....
FEAST OF TABERNACLES AND LAST GREAT DAY
NOW WE come to the festival of Tabernacles -- or Feast of Booths -- the sixth festival. Let us notice the instruction concerning this occasion:
"Thou shalt observe the feast of tabernacles seven days, after that thou hast gathered in thy corn and thy wine. And thou shalt rejoice in thy feast, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter ....Seven days shalt thou keep a solemn feast unto the Lord thy God in the place which the Lord shall choose: because the Lord thy God shall bless thee in all thine increase, and in all the works of thine hands, therefore thou shalt surely rejoice ... and they shall not appear before the Lord empty: every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord thy God which he hath given thee" (Deut. 16:13-17).
Here is the Festival of Tabernacles, to be kept for seven days, beginning the 15th day of the seventh month of God's sacred calendar. Notice Leviticus 23:33-35: "And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the feast of tabernacles for seven days unto the Lord. On the first day shall be an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work therein."
On the first of these days is a holy convocation -- a commanded assembly. No work is to be done. "... And ye shall rejoice before the Lord your God seven days .... It shall be a statute for ever in your generations: ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month" (Lev. 23:40-41).
Notice that it is commanded forever.
Here are pictured those final culminating events in God's great plan: after Christ has died for our sins to redeem mankind -- after He has sent us the Holy Spirit and picked out a people for His Name to become kings and priests through the thousand years -- after His glorious Second Coming -- after He has finally restored the redeemed by placing all the sins upon the head of Satan, their real author, and separating both him and the sins from the presence of God and His people, thus finally perfecting the at-one-ment, making us finally joined in one -- then we are ready for that final series of events, the commencement of the "Marriage of the Lamb," the actual making of the New Covenant, the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth and the reaping of the great harvest of souls for a thousand years.
This festival is the picture of the Millennium!
By Bob Barney
THE TRUE DAY OF ATONEMENT IS COMING THIS WEEK! (It is always on the night of September 24th and the day of the 25th! Don't be fooled by pagan traditions... Read about it here and prepare for it! It's the least you can do for your God, and the one who suffered and died 4 U!
Forward: Most of the following is from Wikipedia and is not my words. The basic fact is that this holy day is not only biblical, it should be followed today, and it will be required in the millennium for all to observe. The fact that our position on the calendar differs substantially from the Jewish calendar and most of the Sabbath observing world is based on what the Bible itself claims about God's calendar. The lunar/solar calendar observed by most Jews is simply not Biblical and in fact, is of Babylonian heritage. It is a different calendar than Moses followed, nor is it the calendar that the Essenes followed. It is very doubtful Jesus followed it, as his Passover was a full day before the Jews. I know the claim that the Last Supper was instituted a day before the real Passover (as Herbert Armstrong maintained) but the Bible plainly shows that Jesus' last supper was on Passover! Clearly, the Jews were not observing the same one. Historians such as Roland DeVaux have proven quite convincingly that the ancient Hebrew calendar was only 360 days long, comprising of 12-30 day months. Five and every 4 years, 6 days were added at the end of the year to make up for the shortfall created by a 360 year in a real world time of 365-1/4 day solar year.
The Christian Day of Atonement is an English translation of the Jewish holiday Yom Kippur. The Bible calls the day Yom Hakippurim (Hebrew, "Day of the Atonements"). The day is commemorated with a 25-hour fast by Jews, but normally a 24 hour fast by Christians who observe it. While not observed by the mainstream of Christianity, the small Christian groups (mostly those with origins in the old Worldwide Church of God) that do observe it usually refer to it as the Day of Atonement.
Some Christians with an interest in Biblical Eschatology believe that the Day of Atonement, the sixth of the Feasts of Israel, will mark the very last day of this age. They believe that the Day of Atonement will be the final day to repent and that this epic future day in holy history will come on the eve of the Last Judgement.
Those who do observe this day normally observe it from sunset the night before until sunset of the day listed above (see Leviticus 23:32), similar to the Jewish observance. Some groups keep the biblical holy days on slightly different dates according to their understanding of when does the first day of the month occur. Those that believe the first day of the month is at the first appearance of the crescent moon will keep the Day of Atonement and the other Holy Days on slightly different dates than those listed here. We hold, however, that this is not biblical at all and that the Hebrew month has no correlation at all to the moon, as our months (literally "moonths") have no real correlation to the moon today.
The original rites and practices for the Day of Atonement are set forth in the sixteenth chapter of Leviticus (cf. Exodus 30:10; Leviticus 23:27-31, 25:9; Numbers 29:7-11). It is considered to be a time for fasting, on which no food or drink are be consumed. Leviticus 16:9-10,20-22 states,
And Aaron shall bring the goat on which the LORD's lot fell, and offer it as a sin offering. But the goat on which the lot fell to be the scapegoat shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make atonement upon it, and to let it go as the scapegoat into the wilderness... And when he has made an end of atoning for the Holy Place, the tabernacle of meeting, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat. Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man. The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to an uninhabited land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness. (NKJV)
Christians who observe it note the parallels between the first of the two goats with Jesus and the second of the two goats with Satan (the Azazel goat). Specifically, regarding the latter, they cite the following passage from Revelation 20:1-3:
Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished.
Those who observe it believe that the suitable man in Leviticus 16 is a parallel to the angel that binds Satan and casts him away in Revelation 20.
In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul refers to it as "the Fast" (Acts 27:9).
Jewish groups typically teach, "The Day of Atonement absolves from sins against God, but not from sins against a fellow man unless the pardon of the offended person be secured" (Mishnah tractate Yoma 8:9). Hence the custom of terminating on the eve of the fast day (or in the 10-day period between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur) all feuds and disputes. Even the souls of the dead are included in the community of those pardoned on the Day of Atonement. It is customary for children to have public mention made in the synagogue of their departed parents, and to make charitable gifts on behalf of their souls." Many believe that Jewish tradition is not scripturally valid in all aspects of its teaching. Much of Jewish practice is not strictly based on scripture itself.
Some believe proper observance of the Day of Atonement according to scripture requires the following:
Christians that observe the Day of Atonement normally teach that on that day they are to be at one with God and that fasting humbles them and makes them realize how dependent they are on God for all their needs. They also believe that they are dependent upon the sacrifice of Jesus for their salvation, and that Satan plays a role in encouraging people to sin.
The Christian Day of Atonement, comes after the Feast of Trumpets (also known as Rosh Hashana) and is considered to be part of God's plan of salvation as shown in the biblical holy days given the 12 tribes of Israel, including Judah. The fasting day also gives them pause before the Feast of Tabernacles which is a time of rejoicing and feasting that begins 5 days later.
In the book of Hebrews (chapters 8,9,10) there is a commentary on the Temple ceremony of the Day of Atonement. The author's subject throughout the book is Christ, His priesthood, His works. The author is at some pains to establish that Jesus is the High Priest even though, in the flesh, He comes from the tribe of Judah, not Levi. However, this is easily overcome by virtue of the fact that Jesus is a priest after the order of Melchizedek, according to chapter six, verse 20, which is subsequently explained by the fact that Abraham paid homage to Melchizedek, thus establishing a hierarchy. And in the process of explaining and developing the priesthood of Christ, the author incidentally gives us a Christian commentary on the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur, and tells us what it actually means to a Christian.
Forward by Bob Barney: I realize that Jews follow a different Day of Atonement, but as I addressed at Passover time, God's Calendar is not the Jewish Calendar of today. I won't bother to get into that subject now, but for Christians, understanding God's Holy Days are very important to understand just who Christ is and why the so-called Old Testament is vital to understand the real Jesus and what our future holds. Starting tonight until the end of Thursday Day (at sunset) is God's Day of Atonement.... The following is an article written 50 years ago by Herbert Armstrong...
Day of Atonement, or the Fast
Next, let us read Leviticus 23:26, 27, 31-32: "And the LORD spake ... saying, Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls [fast] ....Ye shall do no manner of work: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be unto you a sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your souls: in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your sabbath." Wonderful mystery! At-one-ment with God! Man at last made one with his Maker!
Again, in the 16th chapter of Leviticus, verses 29 and 31, where the symbolism of the Day of Atonement is explained, we find it instituted a holy Sabbath to be kept forever: "And this shall be a statute for ever unto you: that in the seventh month, on the tenth day of the month, ye shall afflict your souls, and do no work at all, whether it be one of your own country, or a stranger that sojourneth among you ....It shall be a sabbath of rest unto you, and ye shall afflict your souls, by a statute for ever."
Meaning Pictured by Day of Atonement
The Day of Atonement pictures a wonderful and great event, to take place after the Second Coming of Christ, which the world is in total ignorance of because it has failed to see the true significance of these annual Sabbaths holy unto the Lord. It has failed to keep them as a constant reminder of God's plan of redemption!
The symbolism is all expressed in the account of the events of the Day of Atonement, as carried out before the crucifixion, in the 16th chapter of Leviticus.
Verse 5 -- "And he [Aaron, or the high priest] shall take of the congregation of the children of Israel two kids of the goats for a sin offering ...."
Verse 6 -- The high priest offered a sin offering for HIMSELF and his house.
Verses 7 and 8 -- "And he shall take the two goats, and present them before the Lord at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; the one lot for the LORD, and the other lot for the scapegoat" (margin, Hebrew, Azazel).
Now because this has not been understood -- because there are many different views and opinions and ideas and explanations of this, we here pause sufficiently to go into this in some detail. Let us, therefore, regardless of our own former convictions, study with open minds, without prejudice, proving all things. We want truth!
The key to the whole explanation lies in a correct understanding of the meaning of Azazel. This word does not occur elsewhere in the Old Testament. The Comprehensive Commentary has: "Spencer, after the oldest opinions of the Hebrews and Christians, thinks Azazel is the name of the Devil, and so Rosen ....The word scapegoat signifies the goat which went away." The One Volume Commentary says: "The word 'scapegoat' in the A.V. is not a translation." It is merely an interpretation of the supposed meaning by the translators.
True, the English word "scapegoat" signifies "one who bears blame or guilt for others." But "scapegoat" is an English word, and is not a translation of the Hebrew word Azazel. The word "scapegoat," and the meaning attached to this English word, is not a translation of the Hebrew word Azazel, and therefore it is not the word inspired originally. Continues the One Volume Commentary: "Azazel is understood to be the name of one of those malignant demons."
Types of Christ and Satan
These two goats were, of course, types. Notice, it was necessary to be decided by lot, which one was qualified to represent Christ, and which Azazel. Some say BOTH were qualified. The scripture does not say this. Let us not assume it. Now a "lot" is a solemn appeal to God to decide a doubtful matter. It is a sacred religious ceremony. It included a supernatural act of God. That is why lotteries and gambling are of the devil -- an actual profaning of a holy service appealing to God.
Notice, men were unable to decide which goat was qualified to represent Christ. This involved an appeal to God to decide! "One lot for the Lord, and the other lot for Azazel." Now one lot was for the Lord -- this goat typified Christ -- but the other lot was not for the Lord, did not typify Christ, but Azazel -- Satan! These words most naturally suggest that Azazel is the name of a person, here contrasted to the Eternal! Notice the contrast -- one for the Lord, the other for Azazel.
Now the goat which God selected -- through lot, to represent Christ -- was slain, as Christ, its anti type was slain. But the other goat selected by God to represent Azazel was not slain, but was driven, alive, into an uninhabited wilderness. It was not a resurrected goat, symbolizing the resurrected Christ, for it never died. The uninhabited wilderness, to which this goat was driven, cannot, as we shall show, represent heaven, where Christ went. Heaven is neither uninhabited, nor a wilderness.
After God designated which goat represented Christ and which Azazel, the high priest (verse 11) killed the bullock for a sin offering for himself, then took the burning coals of fire and the sweet incense into the Holy of Holies, also sprinkling the blood of the bullock before the mercy seat, typical of the throne of God, covering the tables of testimony (the law). This the high priest was required to do in order to purify himself to officiate, and to represent Christ as High Priest. In the anti type, this was not done, for Christ, our High Priest, had no need of this purification as the typical substitutionary priests did.
Now the Levitical high priest was ready to go out and officiate.
Next, the goat which God selected by lot to represent Christ, as the sin offering of the people, was killed. Thus the sins of the people were borne by the goat, even as Christ, finally, once for all, bore our sins on the cross. But Christ rose again from the dead, and ascended to the throne of God in heaven.
Now, who, or what, from this point on in the Levitical ceremony, typified the resurrected Christ, who went to heaven? Some say the goat representing Azazel. Let us see.
The risen Christ, now at the right hand of the throne of God in heaven (I Peter 3:22), is called -- what? Our High Priest! What was the earthly type of God's throne? The uninhabited wilderness? No! That is where the live goat went!
The earthly type of God's throne was the mercy seat in the Holy of Holies. After Christ died, He went to the heavenly mercy seat interceding for us, as our High Priest. "... Entereth into that within the veil; whither the forerunner is for us entered, even Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec" (Heb. 6:19-20).
Now, again, who, or what, in the Levitical ceremony of the Day of Atonement, typified the risen Christ, our High Priest, who went within the veil to God's throne in heaven? The one goat had been slain. It represented the slain Christ. It can no longer represent the risen Christ. The slain Christ was not our High Priest, because the Levitical priesthood, with its high priest, did not end until Christ rose from the dead and ascended to heaven as a High Priest after the order of Melchisedec. But the risen Christ was High Priest. Now WHO took this part in the Levitical ceremonies, temporarily re-enacted year by year, on this eternal Holy Day? Why, so obviously a child could see, it was the Levitical high priest, not the goat representing Azazel!

Suppose you owned a very valuable automobile, and someone comes in and steals it. Then your next-door neighbor catches that person and calls the police. The policeman shows up and asks the person who robbed and crashed you beautiful car, “are you sorry?” The thief respond s to the officer “yes I am.”
The officer arrest the man goes to court and testifies in behalf of the man saying he has personally forgiven the man for the crime and asked the judge to do the same. Since the judge being a fine
Christian, sees the sincerity in the criminal, also forgives the person and lets the person go. Now you are out of a car that was destroyed and you have now have a situation where someone who's done you harm gets off scott free because he has been forgiven in the name of goodness in God. So let's go ahead and think about the next case. A person comes in robs your house, rapes and kills your wife and children, then gets apprehended by the police leaving your home, covered in your family's blood. Now you being a very good Christian decides to forgive the guy that did all this. You then go to court and you asked the judge and God to forgive the person for the crime he's done a
gainst your wife and your children? The press reports the situation, as if you are some sort of saint! You have practiced real Christianity, and forgave the person who harmed you! You feel great about yourself, and others marvel at your faith and courage – but how wo=ill that go down with your wife and family in the next life? Do you think they will think you had the right to forgive what happened TO THEM? You may think that the above cases that I just used our little absurd, and granted I agree they are. However those cases are exactly what mainstream Christianity tries to force feed it's population of what to adhere to. We are told we are to forgive others their sins. Believe it or not, nowhere in the Bible – nor from the word of God or Jesus Christ, are we told to forgive people that sin against other people. There are examples that Jesus gave us to forgive those who sin against us. We have the right to ask God to forgive for someone who harm us, but we do not have the right to forgive people that harm others. It is simply not our right to do so. This simple plain truth is this. Only God can forgive sins. We cannot forgive sins. We have the right, and maybe the obligation to ask God to forgive those who Sin against us, but we have no right to ask God to forgive the sins of those who have harmed others – loved ones or not. Yet this is exactly what we are told we are to do and believe it or not the Bible says that to forgive people of their sins yourself is blasphemy! You don't have the right to forgive sins, a Catholic priest does not have the right to forgive sins, nor the Pope! Only God can forgive sins... All you can do is ask God to forgive those who sin against you, not others.Here are some quotes, and brief explanations from the Bible:
Matt. 9:9 So He got into a boat, crossed over, and came to His own city. 2 Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.”
4 But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts? 5 For which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise and walk’? 6 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—then He said to the paralytic, “Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” 7 And he arose and departed to his house.
The simple fact is that the scribes knew the law. They knew what blasphemy was, what they didn't know is that Jesus was God and only God can forgive sins.
Here is Jesus' famous little primer on proper prayer. It's found in Matthew Chapter 6:
Our Father in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come.
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven. (Notice the Kingdom of God will be on earth!)
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our sins,
As we forgive those who sin against us. (Notice not for sins against others!)
13 And do not lead us into temptation,
But deliver us from the evil one.
For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
How did the Apostles forgive sins after Jesus was gone, did they forgive peoples sins and heal them? In Acts Chapter 3, we read:
3 Peter and John were going to the Temple courtyard for the three o’clock prayer. 2 At the same time, a man who had been lame from birth was being carried by some men. Every day these men would put the lame man at a gate in the temple courtyard. The gate was called Beautiful Gate. There he would beg for handouts from people going into the courtyard. 3 When the man saw that Peter and John were about to go into the courtyard, he asked them for a handout.
4 Peter and John stared at him. “Look at us!” Peter said. 5 So the man watched them closely. He expected to receive something from them. 6 However, Peter said to him, “I don’t have any money, but I’ll give you what I do have. Through the power of Jesus Christ from Nazareth, walk!” 7 Peter took hold of the man’s right hand and began to help him up. Immediately, the man’s feet and ankles became strong. 8 Springing to his feet, he stood up and started to walk. He went with Peter and John into the temple courtyard. The man was walking, jumping, and praising God.
Did you notice the apostles forgiving the man, as Jesus did? The simple answer is no, they did not because they understood the truth is that God alone forgives sins. We have the right, and yes the duty to forgive those who sin against us, but not those who sin against others. The best one can say would be “May God forgive you for the crimes you have done against others,” but you do not have the right to do so. In fact doing so is blasphemy.
One last point. God does allow us to collectively or singularly ask for the forgiveness of others who have WRONGED GOD, but not other people other than ourselves. We see examples of Moses praying for the sin of the people against God to be blotted away. God can, and often do this – we are not to try and do the same. Moses never forgave the people himself, but asked to do so.
30 The next day Moses said to the people, “You have committed a serious sin. Now I will go up the mountain to the Lord. Maybe I will be able to make a payment for your sin and make peace with the Lord for your sin.”
Don't be fooled by others to conform to a Christianity that is really paganism and satanism in the disguise of Christ and God! Read the Bible from cover to cover and learn what it says to do. Follow those words that you read, they are from God and not from men, and you will be shocked to learn The Plain Truth that will set you free from the shackles of so-called “Christianity!"

The Rest of the Story (Ben Hur) inspired by the late Paul Harvey
A New "Ben Hur" Movie has been released. In no way does it match Heston's Original Classic, but do you know the story behind Ben Hur? It is an amazing story of an atheist finding GOD!
Most folks my age knows the story of Ben Hur, maybe some of the younger readers out there have not read the book or watched the movie. I highly recommend it! This classic book written by a Civil War general, Lew Wallace, in 1899, was turned into a movie starring Charleton Heston, which won the Academy Award for best movie in 1959. It is a towering story of love, of suffering, of the struggle of good against evil, and finally of triumph. Judah Ben Hur, the story’s hero, grows up with his boyhood friend, Marsalla. Judah is a Jew, and Marsalla a Roman. Judah is the heir of a very great and wealthy house in Jerusalem. Marsalla is a promising military man who trained in Rome as a soldier, then returned to Jerusalem as the leader of the Roman occupation forces. Both are great friends, but fate intervenes and makes the two bitter enemies.
Judah Ben Hur is sent off to die in prison, but a kind man gives him water to drink and that act of kindness leads to his will to survive and again fate has him saving the admiral of the Roman fleet and thus thrusting Judah back into fame and fortune.
The story of Ben Hur is riveting and all inspiring, but do you know the rest of the story about the WRITER of the novel? You see General Wallace, like myself started as an atheist! He began this book in an attempt to show the silliness of the Christian faith. I too started off my journey back in 1975 to disprove Garner Ted Armstrong and his logical and methodical belief in God - The God of the Bible! This story has a special meaning to me, because Mr. Wallace met a fate with destiny in his journey, as I did some 70 years later....... And the rest of the story ???????????????????
My dad died on December 28 1998, a day after my youngest daughter's 13th birthday. My dad was always my hero. Unlike most kids from the 60's, I never felt a resentment to him, and thought for the most part that he was always right.
My dad was born on this day in 1922. He grew up very quickly and terribly hard during the depression. His father died when he was very young, forcing his family to be broken up and sent to various farms to work as cheap labor – slave labor. At 12 and 13 years old many kids like my dad, ended up living with farm families, just for a bed and a meal. Little pay – if any. They were often treated like mere slaves. Dad told me of times that he would have to stay in the kitchen, as the farmers real kids celebrated Christmas in the living room, opening their presents and having a great family gathering. Dad was not included. That's how he grew up in the real world - one that was often cruel and uncaring. Dad dropped out of school after the 8th grade in order to work. That experience made him sure that he would better himself, and that his family would never suffer as he had. For the most part he succeed, through hard work, and a sense of honesty and character. All who knew him respected him, most I would say looked up to him.
His story changed. Dad worked hard, often holding down two and three side jobs. In The 1940's, he was still farming, and for a time ran the farm that was owned by the sister of the Warner Brothers! He did well for himself, and by the late 40's was running the very same farm that I would one day sell corn from and put me through college. People noticed his hard work an especially his integrity. dad didn't lie, cheat or steal from anyone. My mother was a devote believer; but my father was not outwardly religious - but had a great belief in God. Like Joseph in Egypt, he had a knack to turn things around and make people money. Soon this got the attention of the Nestle company, and Dad was hired and quickly worked his way up the ranks to a high paid management position. In doing so, we (his children) grew up in a storybook life. We lived well in the 50,'s 60's and 70's. As for me, I was good in school, went to college and ended up graduating at the University of Connecticut in the mid-70's.
Even during his Nestle's years, dad worked side jobs. He still help work the farm owned by Mary Weaver, he mowed lawns, drove nighttime mail truck deliveries, and about anything else that would better his family. We were the first family on our street to have a color tv (1963), The first to have 3 cars (by 1970), and the first to have a swimming pool (1967). Dad worked hard, so his kids would not have to ever live as he did. He was a success in that.
My dad lived into his 78th year, dying of complications from modern hospital mistreatment. There is not a day I don't think of him
Happy Birthday Dad - until we meet again on that great day!
Women have a 1.5 times more chance to be raped by a cop than by the entire male US population!
By Bob Barney
According to the 3rd Quarter Report of The National Police Misconduct Statistics and Reporting Project, police officers were accused of sexual assault at a rate of 79 per 100,000 law enforcement personal. The rate of accusations for the general public is 28.7 per 100,000 general public. When corrected for gender these numbers tell us that there are 1.5 times more accusations of sexual assualt among male law enforcement officers than among the general male population. The fact that rapists seem to be concentrated among a group of armed individuals who have the purported authority to detain and arrest other individuals should be more than a little alarming for even the most prolific police bootlicker. In just the last month, several stories of officers committing disgusting crimes have been in the news. (source).
The Plain Truth has uncovered a shocking expose of facts on just how horrible the situation has become. No longer are American policemen the bastion of decency and moralism. There was a time, wIn-Texhen any child, woman or man in trouble could depend that the person that they could run to in times of trouble wore a blue uniform and carried a badge. No longer. We have reported the multitude of unnecsseray police assaults, shootings and brutality that most patriotic Americans simply will not face up to. They watch the glorification of the police force on Fox News, and anyone willing to call attention to the problem are branded anti-American liberals. I am not liberal, I am more conservative than any personality on Fox News, but I do see brutality and unconstitutional acts of policemen when I see them! Unfortunately, I see these stories every day.
A Miami-Dade police officer, was charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation for fondling teenage girls during a traffic stop. A former Fredericktown, Missouri police captain and Boy Scout leader, Kenneth D. Tomlinson II, was sentenced to three consecutive life terms plus 22 years for sexual contact with two boys, beginning when they were 11. A Houston Police Officer, Abraham Joseph, has been charged with an aggravated sexual assault that allegedly occurred while he was on duty. Officer Joseph has been accused of handcuffing a woman and then raping her on the trunk of his patrol car. The city of Charlotte, North Carolina will pay a 17 year old victim of former police officer Marcus Jackson, $350,000 to settle her lawsuit against the city. Jackson is now serving a two year sentence for sexually assaulting six women while on duty. Click here for the link citing a half dozen other incidents of brutal sexual crimes women and boys.

I am a history buff. Even as a kid, I spent hours reading historical books, and today I watch every trivia TV show that there is. I loved Paul Harvey's "The rest of the story," because there are so many interesting tidbits we are never told about famous person and events. For example, how many people know that John Wilkes Booth killed Lincoln? Everybody right? Well did you know that Booth's more famous brother Edwin saved Lincoln's son Todd from being killed? Yes it happened. In an interesting coincidence, Edwin Booth saved Abraham Lincoln's son,Robert, from serious injury or even death. The incident occurred on a train platform in Jersey City, New Jersey. The exact date of the incident is uncertain, but it is believed to have taken place in late 1864 or early 1865, shortly before Edwin's brother, John Wilkes Booth, assassinated President Lincoln. (source)
Well here is another "rest of the story" that you probably never heard before now. We know that John Hinckley Jr (born on my birthday in the same year) had an obsession of actress Jodie Foster and to show his undying love for her, shot Reagan. But did you know that John's dad, John Sr. was a wealthy oilman, and a friend of the Bush family? It's true... Follow this link for THE REST OF THE STORY.
One last little tidbit called "IF" and it is the Rest of the unseen Story concerning abortion. Two women are pregnant, both ask a doctor should they have an abortion........ Click here for the amazing story.

“It's a fine line between the darkness and the dawn
They say in the darkest night, there's a light beyond”
Tragedies and sorrows abound. The tragedy in Newton Connecticut... sorrows in Aurora Colorado and places around the world we have never even heard of. What's it all mean, and how can anyone cope with the pressure of an evil world. One thing I have learned over the years is that people face tragedy differently. Some can't handle their sorrowful times, and just “tune out.” These people will not face reality no matter what the consequences. Others, jump into the face of tragedy and fight with everything they have to stay sane. Many turn to God, and others to “religion.” Often some go into a morbid period of denial. I can very well understand the parents of those 20 children slaughtered the other day fitting into one of the categories above. My hope is that they turn to God for help, but many may not. It is sad, but the world we live in is not God's world. The apostle Paul said that this world is ruled by the Devil and his demons masquerading as false ministers of Christ who pray on those in distress and lead many to despair. He says in 2 Corinthians 4:4 that, “Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don't believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don't understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.” Some have such a difficult time grasping the practical this concept- that this is not God's world, perhaps because we think of God as Creator and marvel at the staggering beauty of what God has made. In that sense it is His world. But the society is not. In 1 John 2:16, John writes, “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the.” William Barclay in his commentary on this verse writes, "To John the world was nothing other than pagan society with its false values and its false gods" (p. 56).

It's about time Americans face up to the real cause of mass killings in America, and who is really responsible for the deaths in Aurora, Newtown, and San Bernardino, and now Orlando- it's politicians, and the liberals who brought us gun control. We have been lied to by those who themselves are protected by people carrying guns. Does Chuck Schumer have armed body guards? How about nancy Pelosi, or President Obama? You know the answer.
The fact is that the same people taking away your constitutional right to bare arms, are protected by guns themselves. There are over 20,000 gun laws and regulations on the books in the USA. If those laws haven't made America safe by now, why should we think that one or two new laws would work?
We shouldn't. We need to see the plain truth that gun laws are the number one reason why we have so many gun deaths. These laws have made all of us, including our children less safe. When we are disarmed, we become victims of aggressors. Our politicians know this, that's why they are protected by a long line of guns! What they don't tell you is that they don't give a damn about you, or your loved ones. Many hope for you to be slaughtered by guns because they can gain even more power over you!
So it's time to face reality and repeal these laws – every single one of them!
In fact, I contend that nobody should need to have concealed carry permits!
By the way, read our article that Police Officers Three Times More Likely to Murder Than Concealed Carry Permit Holders.
Criminals and assassins don't obey laws. Gun laws are useless because any criminal knows that legal guns that can be traced; they buy them in the underworld or simply steal them.
Therefore, gun-control laws don't apply to criminals or stop gun violence. They simply make it much harder for innocent people to defend themselves. And the crooks know this all too well. They actively seek out gun free zones to do their killing. The Crime Prevention Research Center (CPRC) recently released a report that indicates that since January of 2009 to July 2014 92% of all mass shootings in the US occurred in gun-free zones.
Mass shootings are no more common than they have been in the past, by the way. Despite the impression given by the media, In the high point for mass killings in the U.S. was 1929, according to criminologist Grant Duwe of the Minnesota Department of Corrections. Incidents of mass murder in the U.S. declined from 42 in the 1990s to 26 in the first decade of this century. The chances of being killed in a mass shooting are about what they are for being struck by lightning. Until the Newtown horror, the three worst K–12 school shootings ever had taken place in either Britain or Germany. (Read more at: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/335739/facts-about-mass-shootings-john-fund)..
Harry Brown, a libertarian posed these facts:
Stripping Away your Safety
Let's take a brief look at how the various kinds of gun-control laws make you more vulnerable.
Waiting periods: A waiting period means that a woman being stalked will have to remain defenseless for a few extra days. Will her stalker refrain from assaulting her until the waiting period is over?
Safety locks: Although safety locks might prevent a child from accidentally firing a gun, they also can slow you down when you need a gun in a hurry to defend yourself. Imagine a woman attacked by a rapist in a parking lot. Will she be grateful for the time it takes to unlock her gun? And, of course, if her adversary is carrying a gun, it won't have a safety lock.
Registration of handguns: What would this achieve? Nothing positive. Evil-doers won't register their guns; only law-abiding citizens will. And once your gun is registered, you'll have to be afraid that some future President whose heart isn't pure will use that registration to confiscate your only means of defense against armed criminals.
Licensing of guns or gun-owners: Since criminals won't acquire them, gun licenses won't help find the perpetrator of a violent crime. They are simply a gratuitous invasion of your privacy and that of other innocent citizens.
Background checks for purchasers: No one wanted by law-enforcement agencies is going to buy a gun in a way that requires a background check. He'll get his gun from another criminal or steal it. So the only achievement of a background check is your inconvenience.
But don't background checks catch people with criminal records?
If someone is wanted by the police, he certainly isn't going to undergo a background check. On the other hand, if the gun-buyer is an ex-convict who has paid his debt to society, he should have the right to defend himself from predators -- just as you or I do. Or should his criminal record also prohibit him from buying food or clothing?
Require guns to be locked up: If the law requires guns to be kept out of reach of children, how will the law be enforced? Will the police invade your house periodically to verify that your guns are in safe places? If not, what's the point of the law? If yes, this is another gratuitous invasion of your privacy.
Ban some types of guns: At first glance it might seem reasonable to ban such things as assault weapons or mortars. After all, _you_ don't need such a weapon.
But some people do.
During most riots, the police have been outnumbered and have intentionally stayed clear of gangs that were looting and vandalizing. Suppose your life savings are invested in a store the gangs are about to loot. And suppose you have little or no insurance because your store is in a poor and dangerous section of town. How will you defend the store against the looters? With a knife? With a handgun against a dozen attackers? Or with an assault weapon?
If you prevent innocent citizens from acquiring assault weapons, criminal gangs will still have them -- even if they have to smuggle them into America from thousands of miles away. So why pass laws that disarm only the innocent?
You might be able to imagine the perfect law that allows just the right people to own just the right types of guns, while prohibiting other people from owning inappropriate firearms. But remember, you're only imagining such a law; it will never be a reality. Once the issue is turned over to the politicians, it will be decided by whoever has the most political influence -- and that will never be you or I.
A Sane Crime Policy
The only effective crime policy is to have no laws regulating the ownership of guns, but to prosecute anyone who intrudes on the person or property of another -- with or without a gun.
You really have only two choices. Either:
* Politicians will decide what you can own -- and they will never stop their prohibitions at the point you believe best.
* Or people will decide for themselves what they can own.
Any apparent middle ground between the two actually grants the politicians the power to choose for you.
And all such choices will be made by whoever has the most political influence. So attempts to limit gun ownership will do more to promote the political interests of well-connected people than to reduce crime.
A Safe Society
Disarmed citizens encourage crime and violence.
Armed citizens encourage criminals to find a safer line of work.
The National Rifle Association and Republican politicians have recently urged that today's 20,000 gun-control laws be enforced -- no matter how bad those laws.
Libertarians easily see the folly in this. Libertarians know that those laws are, at best, useless -- and, at worst, highly dangerous. Libertarians want all the counter-productive gun laws to be repealed immediately.
This year there will be 2,000 Libertarians running for federal, state, and local offices -- all the way from President of the United States to municipal offices. All of them support your right to defend yourself -- without qualification.
They provide the one avenue by which you can register your unqualified disapproval for today's gun-control climate.
For safety sake, we must repeal all the gun laws.
--- Harry Browne is running for President of the United States as a Libertarian candidate. More of his articles can be found at www.HarryBrowne.org.
The answer is not gun laws. The answer is that you live in the same world that your politicians and leaders live in – one of protection by armed people!
I ask that you all demand that the same protection awarded to our leaders, are awarded to us! ARM THE AMERICAN CITIZEN! Allow anyone without a criminal record, or one found BY A COURT OF LAW to be mentally unstable to carry guns everywhere at any time.
Liberals claim that we don't want to be taken back to the violent days of the “wild west.” REALLY? How many murders do you suppose these old western towns saw a year? Let's say the bloodiest, gun-slingingest of the famous cattle towns with the cowboys doing quick-draws at high noon every other day. A hundred? More? How about five? That was the most murders any old-west town saw in any one year. Ever. Most towns averaged about 1.5 murders a year, and not all of those were shooting. You were way more likely to be murdered in Baltimore in 2008 than you were in Tombstone in 1881, the year of the famous gunfight at the OK Corral (body count: three) and the town's most violent year ever.
No, the facts are that it was far safer to be in the “wild west” against indians (the muslim-like terrorist of the day) and crazed gunmen like Jesse James, than you are today in any US city!
WAKE UP AMERICA- Learn The Plain Truth- You have been lied to! You have been lied to about God, the true religion of Christ, the reason why America was really blessed, and why we are now under a curse, and about climate change and gun control! If you do not start a personal study of everything you think you know, you will continue to be a victim of your evil leaders! Require them to disarm their security officers! Require Obama to disarm the secret service! If he believes that armed people don't protect you, then let him follow by example!

Some say Midnight - others think at sunset - what does the Bible say?
Christ warned us to be aware of false religion, customs and laws. These warnings have basically fell on deaf years but the most important "sign" that we can look for, as to the coming of Jesus again back to this world is the spread of false religion and religious practices that are contrary to God. Over the years, God's Law (THE TEN COMMANDMENTS) has been replaced by man's law. Our theologians call it "saved by grace" when truly nothing of the sort is biblically true.
Christmas, Easter, Sunday worship actually pre-date the earthly ministry of Jesus! Yes you read that correctly, these holidays have nothing to do with Christ and were being followed long before GOD became a man and walked among us. Even in the garden of Eden, the very first religious lie promulgated was the "immortal soul" doctrine. To this day, we believe the devil and that "we shall not die, but be like God" and live forever as some spirit in heaven or hell. That is Satan's lie and almost every false religion has adopted it.
In Jesus' time, the Jewish nation, after years of captivity, began to adopt Babylonian ways. They took on the Babylonian calendar and "lost" God's true perfect one, and at the same time began the truly pagan observance of "evening days." This simply means that, like the Babylonians, they began to start their day at sunset rather than sunrise. Like everything else, the theologians of the day twisted a few scriptures which may imply evening days and ignored hundreds of scriptures that proved that God's day starts in the morning. Most Sabbath keeping churches to this day follow this pagan start of the day and continue the practice of those lawless religious leaders that killed Christ! The same ones he declared at his arrest were those who worshipped the DARKNESS, when evil reigns! Yes, the nighttime is darkness, and God IS NEVER in darkness. We read in Revelation that when Christ returns to Jerusalem, that where He is will always be in light! There will be no nighttime in the Holy City! Yes, it's in the same Bible that we all read. Revelation 21:23 "And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb [is] the light thereof."
In the very first chapter of the Bible we read "And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."
When did this happen, in the evening time? Is there light at night? Read on..."And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. " So called the light DAY! So when GOD said "Let there be light" it became day! It was dawn!

I have written a new translation of the Bible that has been four years in the making. The following is an excerpt of warnings to both Christians and the people of the United States of America. They are not from me but direct quotes from God and the Bible. I have, with poetic license, merged many warnings from different passages to bring clarity. I have combined God's warnings in Leviticus 26 and Deuteronomy 28 also adding other prophetic verses from the Old and New Testaments including Christ and His apostles.
A GREAT TRIBULATION is coming. The Bible DOES NOT promise a pre-Tribulation Rapture! If you are alive during this time, you will go through this terrible event, Christian or not, so if we are living in the End Times, it may be a smart thing to be prepared! Again, the following are God's words, not mine..

Daniel, a prophet of God, lived over 2,500 years ago. He was a Jewish captive, living in Babylon, and during the time of King Nebuchadnezzar, he was given the meaning of a dream, by God, laying out before him the last four great empires that would rule the earth. One night during the second year of the king's reign, Nebuchadnezzar had some disturbing dreams that neither he nor his “wise-men” could decipher the meaning. He was told about the man named Daniel, and of his God, the God of the universe, who had the ability to interpret anyone's dreams.
30. And it is not because I am wiser than anyone else that I know the secret of your dream, but because God wants you to understand what was in your heart.
35 The whole statue was crushed into small pieces of iron, clay, bronze, silver, and gold. Then the wind blew them away without a trace, like chaff on a threshing floor. But the rock that knocked the statue down became a great mountain that covered the whole earth.
39 “But after your kingdom comes to an end, another kingdom, inferior to yours, will rise to take your place. After that kingdom has fallen, yet a third kingdom, represented by bronze, will rise to rule the world.
43 This mixture of iron and clay also shows that these kingdoms will try to strengthen themselves by forming alliances with each other through intermarriage. But they will not hold together, just as iron and clay do not mix
45 That is the meaning of the rock cut from the mountain, though not by human hands, that crushed to pieces the statue of iron, bronze, clay, silver, and gold. The great God was showing the king what will h appen in the future. The dream is true, and its meaning is certain.”
This is one of the most important warnings in all human history, hardly understood by anyone! Before getting into world history, you must ask yourself two basic questions. #1 Is the God of the Bible real, and #2, do you believe that God can predict the future? These two questions are really the most important questions you will ever ask yourself; your very life depends on the knowledge that God Almighty has revealed what is going to happen in the world. The statue made in four parts represents the last four empires that would rule the earth. God says so right here: “During the reigns of those kings (the last and 4th empire), the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed or conquered. It will crush all these kingdoms into nothingness, and it will stand forever. We know, from these few scriptures that the fourth great kingdom after Daniel would be the one that Jesus Himself destroys, and then sets up His own millennial kingdom.

Many of us remember Charlton Heston yelling to the crowd in a futuristic society (actually only 2022- 8 years away) ( "You've got to warn everyone and tell them! Soylent Green is made of people!" The plot goes like this: Earth is overpopulated and totally polluted; the natural resources have been exhausted and the nourishment of the population is provided by huge big corporation called Soylent Industries. They are a company that makes a food consisting of harmless, and nutritious plankton from the oceans, or so they say. Natural food like fruits, vegetables, and meat among others have become extinct. Earth is overpopulated and New York City has 40 million starving, poverty stricken people. The only way humanity can survive is by eating a mysterious food called Soylent Green. A detective, played by Heston, investigates the murder of the president of the multinational giant corporation. You know, the Halliburton of the day. The truth he uncovers is more disturbing than the Earth in turmoil when he learns the secret ingredient of Soylent Green. It's people!
Thank God that the story is only science fiction... Or is it?
Most are not aware that around the world, many vaccines are made from aborted babies! In order to promote a better life, we use the bodies of sacrificed babies, while we scoff at Bible versus which predicts child sacrifice in our day! Most smugly deny that we are like the pagan cultures of the past. We are modern, people proclaim, we don't believe in heathen cultures. Really? Are we that much different.
How many people would choose a drug to save them from a rare illness, if the cost to buy the medicine was the life of one of our children? We we trade our life, for that of our children? No you say, right?
WRONG! The Plain Truth is many vaccines made in the world today are made from aborted babies. How many of us are aware of this fact? Where you? Would that change your opinion of the vaccine industry?

This is the headline that should have been published. Her lies caused the death of at least 4 people in Benghazi and countless more over the years. She makes Richard Nixon look like a choir boy. We have the most corrupt administration to ever sit in the White House. Donald Trump should be leading 90-10 if Americans had any brains.

By Bob Barney - The Plain Truth
Everyone understands that Obama and crew are covering something up about the murder of four Americans, including our Ambassador, in Benghazi Libya right before the 2012 elections. Their first attempt of the coverup was blaming a little known anti-Islam video for the violence, and sticking with that lie for almost a month. After months, of refusing to turn over documents to Congress, the courts, under a lawsuit from Judicial Watch finally forced the regime to release unredacted e-mails to the public and the media was forced to report what mainstream America knew all along - the entire video blaming episode was a coverup story fabricated by the White House to hide the facts on the ground just a few weeks before the presidential elections. The truth would have resulted in a major defeat at the polls, the lie, which worked, kept Obama in office.
After the latest e-mails have finally come to light a very disturbing scenario may be being uncovered.
By Bob Barney
If you read my story below, you will understand the real reason behind the Benghazi massacre. It was a mafia style "hit" of an ambassador who obviously was going to be an embarrassment to the administration right before the 2012 elections. The Clinton's are a crime family. The trail of deaths, illegal acts, money skimming and laundering is just the tip of the iceberg of the crimes committed by this family. Don Corleone, of the Godfather's fame, never had the power of Bill Clinton. The meeting was obviously planned by Clinton to warn Lynch with "a deal she could not refuse." Now let's see if the main stream media, other than Fox reports.... I say NO! Michael Corleone in the movie Godfather gave the real reason why the press is so corrupt -- they are paid by the mafia, and others to write favorable stories. Watch the video - the famous line is at the 4 minute mark!!!!
Here is the story:
PHOENIX - Amid an ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of email and hours before the public release of the Benghazi report, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch met privately with former President Bill Clinton.
The private meeting took place on the west side of Sky Harbor International Airport on board a parked private plane.
Former President Clinton was visiting the Phoenix area and arrived to Sky Harbor Monday evening to depart.
Sources tell ABC15 Clinton was notified Lynch would be arriving at the airport soon and waited for her arrival. MORE

If you have been reading The Plain Truth for anytime, especially this week, you know that certain nations of the world are in reality LOST ISRAEL. Knowing this has led to our prediction that Britain (One of the tribes of Joseph) would eventually leave. Denmark (Tribe of Dan) will certainly not be a part of the end-time Beast of Europe. This story today shows how France (REUBEN) may be the next to go, and the Bible says they will go, only to become a slave state of the huge King of the North Antichrist kingdom to come.

For almost 200 years, those who knew the identity of the British people in Bible prophecy have been "getting it right" when it comes to predicting world events, especially those that concern Europe. Herbert Armstrong, and his son Ted were predicting the formation of The United States of Europe for over 75 years! At first they were ridiculed for not having a clue. They did have a clue however, it was the Bible and the knowledge of who was who in today's world - or where did the nations mentioned in the Bible go. When the Armstrong's were predicting the formation of the United States of Europe, they made it clear that when the BEAST of REVELATION takes over control of Europe, ENGLAND, FRANCE, The Netherlands, Denmark and the Scandinavian countries WOULD NOT BE A PART OF IT! Why did they say this? Because they knew who those people were, from the pages of the Bible: Those countries are the descendants of "The Lost 10 Tribes of Israel." Britain is the tribe of Joseph (so is the USA), France is Reuben, Holland is Naphtali, Denmark is Dan - in fact it is really spelled DANMARK - just read that name on any product made there.
Here is an example of a coin - notice the spelling....
For months now, I knew that the UK would be leaving the EU because I know the identity of the people, and what the Bible says about them. Do you realize that the stone that sits under the throne of the monarch of England is the same stone that Jacob used as a pillow! The original "My Pillow" was Jacob's pillow, a sacred stone on which God gave him a vision of the future of his descendants! The same rock was used by every king of ancient Israel in the coronation ceremony. The same rock was carried by the prophet Jeremiah to Spain, then to Ireland, where every single Irish monarch was coronated over! The same rock was later brought to England where every monarch there including Queen Elizabeth was coronated over!
So this is what you need to know about the history made today:
1) Europe is going to be plunged into a major depression - probably worse than that of the 1920's which gave rise to Mussolini and Hitler. Most the of the democratic nations there will fall, as the people will demand a strong man to lead them out of the depression.
2) The Holy Roman Church will ally with this new leader which will unite Europe (all the nations - except "Lost Israel.") into another "Axis-type" power. That leader is the Antichrist - The nation formed will be a 10 nation kingdom made up of Germany, Austria, Greece and Italy. The leader will probably be German, but possibly Italian.
3) The new United States of Europe will dominate the world! The USA, the other nations of Lost Israel, and the modern Jewish state will fall under the dominance of this satanic leader. Only the Muslim world (The King of the South in the Book of Daniel) will oppose him. He will declare war on the Muslim world and at least 1 BILLION Muslims will be killed!
4)Then, TWO WITNESSES of God will appear! Read what the Bible says about them......
4 These witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands standing in the presence of the Lord of the earth. 5 If anyone wants to hurt them, fire comes out of the witnesses’ mouths and burns up their enemies. If anyone wants to hurt them, he must be killed the same way. 6 These witnesses have authority to shut the sky in order to keep rain from falling during the time they speak what God has revealed. They have authority to turn water into blood and to strike the earth with any plague as often as they want.
7 When the witnesses finish their testimony, the beast which comes from the bottomless pit will fight them, conquer them, and kill them. 8 Their dead bodies will lie on the street of the important city where their Lord was crucified. The spiritual names of that city are Sodom and Egypt. 9 For 3½ days some members of the people, tribes, languages, and nations will look at the witnesses’ dead bodies and will not allow anyone to bury them. 10 Those living on earth will gloat over the witnesses’ death. They will celebrate and send gifts to each other because these two prophets had tormented those living on earth.
11 After 3½ days the breath of life from God entered the two witnesses, and they stood on their feet. Great fear fell on those who watched them. 12 The witnesses heard a loud voice from heaven calling to them, “Come up here.” They went up to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies watched them. 13 At that moment a powerful earthquake struck. One-tenth of the city collapsed, 7,000 people were killed by the earthquake, and the rest were terrified. They gave glory to the God of heaven.
14 The second catastrophe is over. The third catastrophe will soon be here.
15 When the seventh angel blew his trumpet, there were loud voices in heaven, saying,
“The kingdom of the world has become
the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah,
and he will rule as king forever and ever.”
Notice some important facts about these two witnesses. It says for 3 1/2 days THE ENTIRE WORLD will view their dead bodies! How could that have ever been done before the age of satellite TV? CNN, FOX and the news of the world will give us live coverage of their dead bodies!
----- Notice also that the world will be happy that they are dead! That includes Britain and America! There is a simple reason. Modern mankind is at war with God, and refuses to follow the Law of God! For that reason, the world will be punished by these two men. Queers will not be celebrated as an alternative life style. Man's religions are not God's.... They are all part of the Satanic great false church of Babylon. Man's holy days are not God's holy days. God abhors Christmas and Easter! In fact, read the verse above: 9 "For 3½ days some members of the people, tribes, languages, and nations will look at the witnesses’ dead bodies and will not allow anyone to bury them. 10 Those living on earth will gloat over the witnesses’ death. They will celebrate and send gifts to each other because these two prophets had tormented those living on earth."
Notice those words underlined. The world will give gifts to one another at the death of God's Holy Men. When do people exchange gifts? CHRISTMAS! This verse seems to imply that this brutal attack will happen during Christmas time.
Don't be fooled by the pundits on the news! Or by false ministers who preach "another Jesus". Trust what God is telling you in the Bible! Bible events are unfolding in front of our eyes. WAKE UP! REPENT and turn away from SIN- or you will receive the mark of destruction! God says in Ezekiel: "Do you think that I like to see wicked people die? says the Sovereign LORD. Of course not! I want them to turn from their wicked ways and live Turn! Turn, Turn from your lawlessness, O people of Israel! Why should you die?"
America, stop calling evil good and good evil! If you continue to refuse - you will die horrible deaths. Listen and obey the voice of GOD! It is not to late for you.

Just a small piece on today's vote. The Bible tells us who the people of Britain are (The tribe of Joseph) and who the EU will become (The end time BEAST - lead by Antichrist). At the time of the return of Christ, we know that England, France, Scandinavia, Denmark and Holland (all tribes of "Lost Israel) will NOT be a part of the NEW EU. They may be conquered by the Antichrist, but they themselves will be slaves. So today's vote in England is very important to watch.
The final poll of the referendum campaign shows a narrow lead for the Remain camp, the Evening Standard reveals today. The exclusive Ipsos MORI survey shows 52 per cent wanting to stay in the European Union, against 48 per cent for a Brexit. The four-point gap is nail-bitingly close - especially with heavy rain threatening to dampen turnout in London which is a key target area for Remain. Moreover, the research discloses that 12 per cent of people confess they might change their minds in the few hours left before they cast their vote, indicating how the historic decision has torn the country.

All Our Founding Fathers Opposed Homosexual Sin:
Fearing God, and wanting the USA to be blessed by God and not cursed, our Founding Fathers made Christian laws for our nation. God says, “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” Obeying God, our Founding Fathers shamed sin. George Washington court martialed homosexuals. He forbid this sin in the military and said:
“…the Commander in Chief… with Abhorrence and Detestation of such Infamous Crimes [sodomy]…”
