The Hour of Temptation - part 2

All right, good day to you, welcome to the Shepherdís Chapel, hey, welcome to this family bible study hour. Praise God! Weíre going to finish the lecture ďThe Hour of TemptationĒ. Why is it important to you to be at least familiar with that hour of temptation? Because it is a set period of time that God has allotted just before Christís return, and in as much as we are in that generation. Youíll remember in Mark chapter 13 verse 28 that Jesus said to learn the parable of the fig tree, because when the shoot, as recorded in Jeremiah 24 where both the good and the bad fig are set out, all things will be fulfilled before that generation passes away. Well that shoot was set out in 1948. So youíre in that generation. And now we begin to hone, if you would, the time down to that hour which is really a 5-month period of time as we found out in the Book of Revelation. Because the hour is the time toÖ letís simplify it a moment. The son of perdition is given an hour. His name is also apollyon and we find out in Revelation chapter 9 that he has a 5-month period. We also find that there was silence in heaven for a half hour. Now how long would that be judging by Revelation chapter 9? It would be 2 Ĺ months. So instead of 3 Ĺ years [half of Daniels original 7 years], we have the time shortened for the electís sake, as it states here in this 13th chapter of Mark. So for the electís sake, God has shortened the days or else there would be no one saved. So it is really a time of severe deception. That is called the tribulation of antichrist.

So with that thought in mind we come back and begin to hone in on that hour whereby you can recognize it when it comes to pass. Weíre going to talk about some very simple things today. Like when Christ set it aside, the hour, and He begins to explain some of those final events that will consummate the end of this age. I want to go with that thought in mind, The Hour of Temptation.

I want to go to the 13th Chapter of Mark. Youíll remember Christ is telling how it will be at the very end generation just before He returns in this particular chapter as well as Matthew 24. Weíre going to speak and address that hour in both chapters. Okay, letís go first with Mark 13, and as much as you are all familiar with that chapter if youíve studied with me for any length of time. Letís pick it up in the 9th verse of that 13th chapter of Mark and letís go with it. Listen to the word of God taught by Jesus Christ in that office. And it reads:

Mark 13:9 But take heed to yourselves:

What does that mean? It means to be real careful.

for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten:

What synagogue are we talking about? Do you remember Revelation chapter 3 verse 9? It is stated there, for you that have the key of David, that there are those that claim to be of our brother Judah but in fact are the Kenites of the synagogue of satan and even they will come and worship. And it says that I will let you escape the hour of temptation, as it was written there in Revelation chapter 3. So hereís another account of that being delivered up before the son of perdition in his synagogue, his gathering place, his church so to speak. Now thatís not to be confused of any synagogue of today, but the synagogue of antichrist when he is on this earth. Any one that refuses to accept the son of perdition as the true messiah, naturally will be delivered up for what, punishment? No conversion. The great apostasy would have taken place. So we continue. And this is part of that hour of temptation. It may be tempting for some to say, ďOh well, why fight it?Ē but to the rest it will be an abomination. And to be beaten is only to be beaten spiritually if you allow it.

and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake,

Would you be willing to do that for the Son of God? Would you be willing to do that for Jesus who died for us on the cross? I think so.

for a testimony against them.

In other words, the purpose is to give testimony against the Kenites and the son of perdition. What an opportunity! Talk about a champion of the people! And people say that Godís word is boring? This will come to pass. It is written. And true Christians will stay true and remain a virgin, spiritually, all the way to the end, to the true Christ. Alright, now verse 10:

Mark 13:10 And the gospel

And this is the reason you are delivered up. Not to be harmed but to do what?

must first be published among all nations.

And many people say, ďWell it is published todayĒ. Oh, come on. You call that the gospel? Think about it. How many people have the eyes to see and ears to hear? We are told in Luke 21 thatÖ well letís go one more verse and then weíll break into that a little bit.

Mark 13:11 But when they shall lead [you], and deliver you up,

When this takes place. This is the teaching of Christ.

take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour,

THAT HOUR. What hour? The Hour of Temptation. As a matter of fact this is the only time that Godís elect could commit the unpardonable sin and thatís why it is an hour of temptation. I do not think that one living soul will commit that sin because we find him an abomination. Well what will you do and what will you say?

but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour,

The hour of temptation

that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.

Which is to say the Holy Spirit which a better translation from the Greek, Spirit. In other words this is that which was spoken of on Pentecost day when Peter would say, ďThis is what was spoken of by Joel the prophet (see Joel 2:28) when both the sons and the daughters are delivered up and the Holy Spirit speaks through them.Ē (see Acts 2:17) Itís coming. And that hour of temptation will be upon the whole world but Godís elect will not fall short. In this entire chapter Christ is making it very clear that the false messiah will come to this earth and establish this false church and government, as it is written even in Revelation 13, and we will stand against it for a very special reason. It is so that the truth spoken by the Holy Spirit, the very two-edged sword or word of God coming from the very mouth of those champions that are not deceived. Back in verse 5 of this 13th chapter that would be Christís first warning to take heed that no man deceive you. Why? Donít listen to manís traditions; rather, listen to the word of God for this is how it shall come to pass in that hour of temptation.

Now Iíd like to go, if we may, to Matthew chapter 24. I want to pick it up there and this is the very same subject matter being taught. Weíre going to go, in all fairness, to a different report. We were at Markís report now weíre going to Matthewís report. Now remember what I said about the parable of the fig tree. He didnít say to the Christian that maybe you should get around to learning it. He said LEARN IT. Itís imperative that you know it otherwise you wouldnít even know the season you see. Okay? For anyone thatís concerned about that we have a tape entitled the parable of the fig tree and I say the same, you better learn it.

Letís pick it up in verse 34 in the 24th chapter of Matthew. Christ has just explained concerning the parable of the fig tree and how that all things would be fulfilled before that generation had passed away and we pick it up in Matthew 24:34 and it reads:

Matthew 24:34-35 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

The world of God is eternal. You are going to live by this in the eternity, if youíre there. Otherwise youíre going to be in a lake of fire anyways so it wonít make a whole lot of difference to you will it? Because youíre gone. Verse 36, listen carefully, as it begins with the word BUT, it means it is carrying the same subject:

Matthew 24:36 But of that day and hour

And I repeat and hourÖ What hour? The Hour of Temptation.

that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

But again, He gives the parable of the fig tree directly before that and it does give the generation. So itís important beloved that you understand that. Now what does this verse 37 say? And remember it starts with BUT, so the same subject is continuing, giving you more clues :

Matthew 24:37 But as the days of Noe

Iíll pronounce it in the Hebrew, NOAH.

[were], so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

In other words, itís going to be just like it was in Noahís day when the true Christ returns to this earth. Well what was going on then? Well Heís going to tell us. Isnít it wonderful and what a teacher He is! I speak of Christ. Verse 38:

Matthew 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

Now it doesnít take an intelligent person to go back to Genesis chapter 6, for these are very important things, for they would take place in that hour of temptation. So you better sharpen up. These things that follow will take place. Youíre actually reading how it will be here on earth during that hour of temptation. You know very well that from Genesis 6 states that the fallen angels saw the daughters of Adam and that they were beautiful. And they came and took them to wife, seduced them, they were impregnated them, and children were born, and they were called geber by the nephilim. (see: Genesis chapter 6:1-5) And God searched and there was only one man that had a perfect generation; that word generation in the Hebrew, taken to the prime, is pedigree.

Genesis 6:9 These [are] the generations of Noah: Noah was a just man [and] perfect in his generations1755, [and] Noah walked with God.

Companion Bible side column:

Genesis 6: 9 - the generations. Heb. toledoth = family history. man = Heb. 'ish. See Ap. 14. ii. perfect. Heb. tamin, without blemish as to breed or pedigree. See Ap. 26. All flesh corrupted but Noah's family. See vv. 11, 12. his generations: his contemporaries. Heb. dor (not toledoth, as at beginning of the verse). See note on 7. 1

So they had not intermixed with these hybrids, these fallen angels. And thatís why the flood came to pass because God destroyed the hybrids. Got rid of them. Thatís why the flood came to be because they were giving and taking in marriage to who? You know who. It would be this same thing and reason that Paul would say that a woman should keep her head covered in church, because of the angels. (see: I Corinthians 11:10) Why? In Revelation 12:7, Michael is going to cast satan and his angels back out on this earth during which time satan fulfills the role of the son of perdition, the only son pronounced and sentenced by God to perish, and as the spurious messiah - or in other words heís going to pretend to be Jesus Christ himself. Now that isnít too difficult to put together. Especially for those of you that have eyes to see and ears to hear. That will all happen in that hour of temptation. How much clearer could Christ make it? That will all be going on. Verse 39, He continues:

Matthew 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

You can read in that same chapter of Revelation 12 that there will also be another flood, a flood of lies coming from satanís mouth that chases after those that try to follow Christ. Yes there will be another flood but not a flood by water but by lies and deception.

Rev 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

Hey the flood by lies and deception has already started friend. And anytime someone would tell you ďdonít worry youíre going to be goneĒ [as with the rapture doctrine] theyíre lying to you. They do not mean to for they are in ignorance concerning it. And I know it upsets them when I say that, but tough. Iíd rather see their souls saved at the risk of intimidating or offending because this is Jesus Christ speaking of exactly how it will be before His coming. And many men lie concerning how it shall be at His coming by quoting traditions of men rather than the word of God. Hey, you make your own mind up friend. Youíre making your own bed and I guarantee you that youíre going to sleep in it. My question is whom will you believe? Jesus Christ or some man? It is Christ that is telling and sharing these things with us. Verse 40:

Matthew 24:40 Then

This means at the same time or just right after that and after you see these things happen right on earthÖ

Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

And oh, how many sermons have been preached on this! And how many have said, ďOh praise Jesus, I want to be the one taken!Ē Well who are they taken by? By the son of perdition! The antichrist! The fallen angels! Do you want to be taken by them? Well hey, hop in bed with them friends, spiritually speaking. Itís all your game. Youíre the one thatís going to pay the bill. Have at it. Heís telling you about the hour of temptation. Are you intelligent enough not to even be tempted? Are you biblically illiterate or are you familiar with Godís word? Listen to the teachings of Christ. Verse 41:

Matthew 24:41 Two [women shall be] grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

The subject of this entire chapter is the deception of the false Christ. Heís the one doing the taking [by the way of that flood of lies as was stated 2 verses ago]. You want to join the team friend? They got mighty pretty uniforms. Jump in one of them if that is what your choice is. Listen to the traditions of men and suffer. Listen to Jesus Christ and find eternal life. Verse 42:

Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore:

Heís said, ďIíve told you about it now, Watch therefore.Ē

for ye know not what hour

What hour? The hour of temptation.

for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

The hour of temptation precedes the very end of that hour of that 5-month period. Verse 43, Christ still speaking:

Matthew 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

If you know the hour of temptation you wonít be caught off-guard friend because that is the hour in which it will come. 44:

Matthew 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour

What hour? The hour of temptation.

as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

In other words with the false messiah already on earth not too many will be watching for the true Son of God. But you will be. Why? You know the truth. You know the hour of temptation. Verse 45:

Matthew 24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant,

Now do you want to be a faithful and wise servant? Now stop and think about this. This is a question by Jesus ChristÖ

Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

Do you know what meat is? Itís that strong food from Godís table. The truth. In what season? The season of the generation of the fig tree and the hour of temptation. Can you handle strong meat? Or are you still sucking a bottle and still wearing diapers of Christianity. Are you biblically illiterate or have you studied our Fatherís word? You can answer for yourself. Verse 46:

Matthew 24:46 Blessed

Boy now, this is where you really want to be, blessed

[is] that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

Now what did that say? Did it say blessed is the servant that is flying out in the atmosphere out in the boony moony moons? That isnít what He said. He said blessed is the servant that stays on the job in the field which is the earth, working. (see: Matt 13:38Öthe field is the earth) Working what? Doing what was described as when you are delivered up allowing the Holy Spirit to speak, and to continue serving the Living God. And, blessed will be, only the person still doing Godís work, and cursed is the 1st taken. Cursed. In the bed of satan, the jezebel of Revelation chapter 2 and 3. It declares there very clearly that sheíll hop into his bed, but I didnít say it, Christ did. Verse 47:

Matthew 24:47 Verily

Verily can be better translated into the English as truly. ďIím telling you the truthĒ is what Christ is saying.

I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

In other words thereís going to be some teachers during the millennium. And it will be those that teach even now. It is that one that stays at the mill working that will be in charge during the millennium and teaching those that have allowed themselves to trip and fall into the deception of the false christ. 48 and 49: that he is not aware of,

Matthew 24:48-49 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite [his] fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

I can hear them, (said with a drunken tone) ďHe ainít coming. And donít worry if He does cause youíre gonna be gone anyway! You donít have to study Godís word. You donít have to understand the book of Revelation. Youíre not even going to be here so party it up spiritually friend! And rest easy youíre saved.Ē Saved by who, antichrist?! Wake up! Verse 50:

Matthew 24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for [him], and in an hour

What hour? The hour of temptation, right at the close, that he is not aware of. Are you aware of the hour of temptation? Youíre being taught friend. Verse 51:

Matthew 24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint [him] his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Weeping and gnashing of teeth is like, ďOh Lord You donít understand, I, Iíve been a big time preacher here for You for many yearsÖ I, I, just got off track there with that rapture thing and Iíve led a lot of people to you Lord.Ē And Heís going to tell him, ďGet out of my sight! Get over there with the hypocrites, you hypocrite!Ē Sounds strong? Well Iíd rather see you wake up now then wake up too late. Chapter 25, verse 1, continuing the thought with the starting word then:

Matthew 25:1 Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.

Now Iím going to tell you something. Weíre going to be talking about this same hour. The hour of midnight is the end of the day in this parable. It begins with the 11th hour. They all claim to be Christians. The oil, in the Greek, that is placed in these lamps is elaion (G1637) - ἔλαιον, or olive oil which is symbolic of Godís truth and the Holy Spirit. How are you fixed friend? How well have you studied your Fatherís word? In other words this has to do with that hour, summed in a neat pattern, and tied whereby you can see the entire hour pass before your eyes in this parable. And then comes midnight. What are you going to be doing at midnight friend? Letís check it out. If youíre going to continue your present course of today, where are you going to be at midnight? Listen. Verse 2:

Matthew 25:2 And five of them were wise, and five [were] foolish.

ďYou donít have to know Godís word. Itís just a waste of time listening to God. Listen to me. You donít have to understand Revelation even though the word Revelation means revealed or unveiled. Donít trust God. Trust me with your soul.Ē Donít be foolish my friend. Verse 3:

Matthew 25:3 They that [were] foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

They were so-called ďsavedĒ but they didnít have any meat. They didnít have any spirit of the word of God Ė they hadnít studied it, they were biblically illiterate. Empty. Running on empty. Brain cells down to zero concerning the word of God and the time segments Ė the hour of temptation. Verse 4:

Matthew 25:4 But the wise took oil

That oil is the love of the truth.

in their vessels with their lamps.

In other words this was a reservoir of oil other than just a little light by the wick. That chamber had a reservoir. It had a 5-gallon bucket of it along with them. Iíll put it that way. And what are lamps? Theyíre lights and Christ is the light of the world. Have you ever studied His word? I hope and pray for the souls of those men that have passed off the words of Jesus Christ in the book of Revelation as no need to learn it. Because youíre ignorant or uneducated in the word of God and youíre leading a lot of souls to the lake of fire and empty wicks. Verse 5:

Matthew 25:5 While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.

Itís getting close to midnight and the drowsy is out. God sent the spirit of slumber on a bunch of them for their own protection. Verse 6:

Matthew 25:6 And at midnight

The hour is over.

there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

We blew the whole hour from 11 to 12, and they were asleep. ďYou donít have to understand Godís word. Just be stupid. You be gone stupid. Itíll be alright.Ē Now thatís how much sense it makes my friend and I realize Iím riding them pretty good and my spurís dug in deep, but itís pretty late in the day. Pretty late in the hour to be playing church with a bunch of wimps. Alright. Get serious.

Matthew 25:7 Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.

Do you know what itís like to trim a lamp? It doesnít make a real bright flame if itís all jagged and got a lot of soot there. So you had better have yours trimmed, because it burns brighter. Verse 8:

Matthew 25:8 And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.

Gone out or they are going out. Hey, itís a little late to be waiting until the last minute to say ďteach me Godís wordĒ. Iím sorry, throw them back in. Too late Charlie. So sad. Youíre not good enough. We donít want you in that condition. Too late. So sad. When you are wise enough to understand that youíre within that hour, and everyone since 1948 should be, you had better be gathering in that oil which is the truth of Godís word that guides you and directs you. He did not leave us helpless and dumb. He sent us the word of God from whence all wisdom flows. Are you listening to man or are you studying Godís word? Hey, itís up to you friend. Weíre a little late in the day to be playing church and traditions. You better get into His word. Verse 9:

Matthew 25:9 But the wise answered, saying, [Not so];

I mean you canít teach somebody in one minute when itís too late for it happens in an instant. Teaching that fast and better yet absorbing in an instant just doesnít happen.

lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.

In other words go back and study it for yourself friend. Verse 10:

Matthew 25:10 And while they went to buy,

The clock struck 12 times. The hour ended andÖ

the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage:

Not as that jezebel that jumped into satanís bed, but marriage to Yeshua Messiah Jesus the Christ.

and the door was shut.

And so it was. I mean too late Charlie. No time for,ďThe girls are in town, donít shut the door yet. Theyíll be right back.Ē And thereís nothing feminine in this in a literal sense, for all, male and female, of the bride of Christ wait for Him. And for all of those ran a little short on oil, there is a marriage they are going to attend alright. Iíve been referring to it. She is spoken of here in Revelation chapter 2 and Iím just going to take a little breakÖ

Revelation 2:20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess,

She claimed to have Godís truth, that church.

to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.

Rev 2:21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.

Rev 2:22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

Thatís the tribulation of jumping in bed with antichrist as whereby they are with child and thatís why He would say, ďwoe to those that are spiritually with child when I return. Sayeth the LordĒ You would also read of that back in the 24th chapter of Matthew (see Matt 24:19). Too late Charlie. Thereís two weddings. Which one are you in? Also Paul would say in 2 Corinthians chapter 11, ďI worry about you.Ē He said, ďIím going to talk foolish a momentĒ, and it would be to someone that really would know the truth, but the book was written even unto this generation and they donít understand, many donít.

2 Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present [you as] a chaste virgin to Christ.

Not seduced as Eve was by the evil one, evil one meaning the devil. Are you going to be part of that Jezebel or are you going to be as a wise virgin during the hour of temptation and all the way through it, up to the 12 gongs of midnight? Are you going to enter in to our Lordís wedding before the door is slammed shut? Itís up to you friend. Itís all up to you. Donít blame it on anybody else. Itís up to you.

Weíll go on back to that 25th chapter of Matthew. Letís pull up the next verse, verse 11:

Matthew 25:11 Afterward

Not ďthenĒ or ďbutĒ this time. You still have time with those terminologies. But here it says ďafterwardĒ. Sorry friend. Afterward is too late.

Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.

And they will say, ďWeíre ready now. Are preacher told us we didnít have to understand Revelation or any of the prophecies, but we went real quick and we listened to some old tapes and everything and now weíre back up to date. Weíre ready Lord! Open to us!Ē Verse 12:

Matthew 25:12 But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.

Get out of my sight! Too late Charlie. [That is how it shall be for many, but] now is the time. Now is, even as that hour of temptation approaches beloved, to be aware. Be awake. What are you supposed to do? What did Christ advise you concerning this matter? Verse 13:

Matthew 25:13 Watch

Do you know what a watchman is? I mean, youíve got to watch over your own soul. Open your eyes. Look at Godís word. Watch; for the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah is all over this world just exactly as it was written. You donít have to go very far to see it. The corruption, the pollutionÖ Are you watching?

Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Friend, you know that hour. Itís the hour of temptation. IF, if you study His word. Do you know the moment? No. Nobody knows the moment but you had better, better take very seriously, He that created all things, His instructions and His advice. Because Iím going to tell you something, just as sure as prophecies have come to pass in the past, and they do, line-on-line, they come to pass everyday. And Iíll use my ministry as an example. Almost 40 years ago I was teaching that we would go into one worldism and many people laughed. 30 years ago I was still teaching it. 20 years ago people would still smile, ďThe USA going into a one world system? Forget it JackĒ. 10 years ago, still the same thing. Today you hear of the New World Order, the cutting down of NAFTA, of GATÖ You hear of the New World Order all over the place. The United Nations, not the United States, itís the United Nations thatís all over. ďOne monetary system hopefully. All trade-free, no tariffs anywhere, weíre just one people, one world. Christian, saints, theyíre all like everyone elseĒÖ well they are Godís children, but those are all prophecies that have come to pass online. I have seen it in my generation. And my generation happens to be the generation of 1948. Those prophecies are coming to pass at a rapid pace. I can remember that over 40 years ago when you would have to wait a long, long time for one prophecy to come on another. Does that sound familiar to you? Something like labor pains? They are far apart then they get closer and closer. So are prophecies as they are coming to pass at this time. Some might say ďWell I never seen prophecies come to passĒÖ well I can tell youíre not familiar with your Fatherís word and biblically illiterate if you havenít. Because He forewarned you, if you read His letter He wrote to you, you would be seeing those prophecies come to pass for they do at a very rapid pace now. The birth of a new age is about to transpire and happen! The 12 strokes of midnight are soon coming. How long? Soon. 2, 3 4, the year 2000? I donít expect this earth age to go too far past that IF, that far at all, for all these signs are on the table, practically, for the appearance of the evil one. The temptation to receive him as the true Christ begins at that time. Are you going to worship the first supernatural messiah that appears on this earth soon? Thatís what it comes down to my friend. Christís advice is donít be the first taken. He said donít let somebody deceive you because the antichrist shall come first. Paul himself would teach in 2nd Thessalonians chapter 2, ďI want to talk to you about our gathering back to the true Christ. It isnít going to happen until the son of perdition arrives on earth in the Hour of temptation when he stands in the temple of God claiming to be GodĒ. And for those that will not study the word, God has sent strong delusion on them whereby they will believe the lie. Are you going to believe it? Many will. I trust that you have eyes to see and ears to hear and that you grow and mature daily in our Fatherís word as we gather together and study the meat not milk, meat of the word of God.

Alright beloved, there you have it, the Hour of Temptation. Can you be tempted? It states that in the book of Daniel heís going to say to you, ďIíll pay all of your bills. Iíll write off all your debts, Iíll give you everything you want if youíll worship me. I am messiahĒ Thereís just one thing wrong friend, heís the spurious messiah. How many will line up before him? All of the world will wonder, whose names are not written in the lambís book of life. The Hour of Temptation. There you got it. I hoped you enjoyed it.

Part 1
