#63 The Madhouse Door, pt 2

Table of Contents

Timothy: God is certainly unleashing madness, confusion of mind, and blindness. Let’s consider these facts.

Intro: Welcome to the Consider Podcast where the whole gospel message is used to examine today’s wisdom, folly, and madness. Acts 5:20, “Go stand and speak to the people in the temple, the whole message of this life.” Join the hosts Timothy and Jacob as they pick up their cross to follow Jesus as we pray that God enlightens the mind according to verse 25 of Ecclesiastes chapter 7. “So, I turned my mind to understand to investigate and to search out wisdom and the scheme of things and to understand the stupidity of wickedness and the madness of folly.” Ecclesiastes 7:25.

Video: Deuteronomy 28:28-47. The Lord will afflict you with madness, blindness and confusion of mind. At midday you will grope about like a blind man in the dark. You will be unsuccessful at everything you do; day after day you will be oppressed and robbed with no one to rescue you. You will be pledged to be married to a woman but another will take her and ravish her. You will build a house but you will not live in it. You will plant a vineyard, but you will not even begin to enjoy its fruit. Your ox will be slaughtered before your eyes, but you will eat none of it. Your donkey will be forcibly taken from you and will not be returned. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and no one will rescue them. Your sons and daughters will be given to another nation, and you will wear out your eyes watching for them day after day, powerless to lift a hand.

A people that you do not know will eat what your land and labor produce, and you will have nothing but cruel oppression all your days. The sights you see will drive you mad. The Lord will afflict your knees and legs with painful boils that cannot be cured, spreading from the souls of your feet to the top of your head. The Lord will drive you and the king you set over you to a nation unknown to you or your fathers. There will worship other Gods, Gods of wood and stone. You will become a thing of horror and an object of scorn and ridicule to all the nations where the Lord will drive you. You will sow much seed in the field but you will harvest little, because locusts will devour it.

You will plant vineyards and cultivate them but you will not drink the wine or gather the grapes, because worms will eat them. You will have olive throughout your country but you will not use the oil, because the olives will drop off. you will have sons and daughters but you will not keep them, because they will go into captivity. Swarms of locusts will take over all your trees and the crops of your land. The alien who lives among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower. He will lend to you, but you will not lend to him. He will be the head but you will be the tail. All these curses will come upon you. They will pursue you and overtake you until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the Lord your God and observe the commands and decrees, he gave you. They will be a sign and a wonder to you and your descendants forever. Because you did not serve the Lord your God joyfully and gladly in the time of prosperity.

Video: The Supreme Court ruling in favor of removing sharp waste razor wire installed by Texas and rivers along the border between US and Mexico to 5 to 4 vote now clears the way for federal agents to actually cut down the wire which administration officials have called dangerous and inhumane. Our senior Washington correspondent Devin Dwyer joins me now. So, Devin the…

Timothy: So, much madness and so little time. How’s it going Jacob?

Jacob: It’s going good.

Timothy: All of that’s extreme sobering because what was written in the Old Testament now is coming on the world as the world has turned its back on God. We begin to see all kinds of just crazy stuff from small things to big things and again, I’m kind of laughing because the small things are really aren’t that small. You’re flying on an airplane. The door blows open. There was a guy playing a piano and England and communist China was there filming and there’s this big altercation and the police in England are telling him he can’t do that, because I don’t know why. It’ll kind of offend the Chinese. I mean, things are just really getting on a madness stupidity for which you can’t argue about are against, correct?

Jacob: Correct.

Timothy: I guess one of the biggest ones that just most currently looking at our justice system is that our Supreme Court came along and said that Texas cannot secure its borders. Of course, we don’t have time to demolish every aspect of logic. I mean, you’ve got the Biden administration saying, oh the wires are unsafe and it’s not good for people, right? Well, who put them in a position to come in or close to a border that would be unsafe. It was Biden and them doing it, and so you’ve got the Supreme Court doing what mad men do, ignoring reality. You’ve got this whole mess. You’ve got people dying, drug cartels, you’ve got what? Terrorists coming in over the border.

There’s nothing good about what’s happening at the border and yet our Supreme Court of United States just totally overlooks that and without comment and without saying anything says, oh yeah, those wires those borders had to be taken down and they don’t say, why? So, we really can’t go into why. We talked about this in the first episode that you can still kind of argue with somebody that’s madness, but this is getting into insanity. You have, the Supreme Court again giving their judgement no reason why no reason what’s going on. So, how can you do debate the issue and, in the meantime, people are suffering heading toward the borders. Any comments on that before I kind of read from this next article?

Jacob: Well, the Supreme Court I guess is all concerned about these illegal aliens coming in but yeah, they’re not concerned about the American people. Well, what about you know yeah, like you said I mean you got terrorists. You got drug cartels. You got all these people flooding to America. And the Supreme Court doesn’t even care about Americans. Anyways. Yeah, the logics. There’s no logic.

Timothy: I’m not sure. No, there’s no logic. I’m not even sure they care about the illegal aliens coming in. There doesn’t see. Actually, if you cared for the illegal aliens, you’d say, don’t come. The border’s a mess. Stay away. You’d have warning signs like we can’t take care of you. It’ll be a mess. Stay where you’re at. Go through their procedures. We’ll make things. I mean, that’s what you would say if you’re actually concerned. This is a level of well, when you walk into a mental institution, I’m sure you haven’t but when I studied psychology in college, you go into mental session. The people that are in the institution are not really concerned about other people. They don’t even have that capacity if they’re obviously insane at that point.

Jacob: Yeah.

Timothy: They’re go to the gateway pundit. There’s a guy that wrote an article Wayne Island Root and he states the obvious of what we’ve all been thinking. It’s a good article. He says, “Come on admit it. You’re thinking the same thing.” It’s so obvious. It’s just common sense. Anyone who isn’t at least one is a naive fool. He’s correct. He’s talking about the Supreme Court and what they did. He goes, “I grew up in an all-Italian mafia neighborhood in New York. I know when the fix is in. I know when someone has taken a bribe. I know when the mafia has got their hooks into someone. Something is wrong with the United States Supreme Court. Something smells to high heaven.” So, actually it’d be low hell. “Something is hinky and I look that up. It just means it’s just not right. There’s something weird go on. It doesn’t make any sense.”

Now, he’s going to write this off as bribery, corruption, and I don’t doubt that’s got to be part of what’s going on here but more than that, what we have to look at is that God is withdrawing his presence and allowing all of this corruption to come to the service. The legal system is reaping what it’s sown. The Christian church is reaping what it is sown. It’s always look to the court systems rather than just preaching the gospel. “Something is wrong,” he goes on to say, “With our United States Supreme Court. This isn’t normal. It makes no sense. Conservatives have the edge. Not just 5 to 4 but a safe overwhelming 6 to 3 edge. We should be winning every major Supreme Court case.” He is correct. There especially on this border issue. There is no fudge factor. The constitution says to secure the border. The Washington State Supreme Court or constitution says secure the border. That’s therefore job and the last thing that they’re doing is securing the word. They’re making it insecure and flooding the country with all kinds of terrible things that have come back on the country and cause destruction.

He goes on to say, “And yet we keep losing with the most obvious clear-cut life or death of America cases. Cases that should be slammed dunks. Cases where it’s so clear that no conservative or patriot in all of America would vote against us. Cases were a vote against us as a vote for the intentional destruction of America.” He’s correct. There is confusion of mine. There is madness and you’d have to say with the Supreme Court. This is just blindness. And we’ve seen that in our own personal corruptions against legalism. They’re just blind which I really think they don’t see that what they’re doing is wrong on any level. Right Jacob?

Jacob: Yes. And I don’t disagree with this article or anything that’s being said. One of the specifics the Supreme Court came up with though is he they were specifically that Texas can’t use the razor wire, because the razor wire is dangerous and can hurt people and it’s still absolute insanity. But they do have supposedly their reasons of it. It being inhumane and blah blah blah.

Timothy: Well, keeping with our definition. It’s not insanity, it’s madness.

Jacob: Sure, it’s madness.

Timothy: And once they get to the insanity part, you’re right, there won’t be any explanation. They don’t even bother with it. So, what he was talking about just no comment. I hadn’t seen the razor wire excuse. The courts always are straining a nuts and swallowing camels. It’s like what kind of fence would you put up that doesn’t keep people out.

Jacob: Exactly.

Timothy: Or that is safe to it doesn’t mean that’s the nature and besides when we try to build a wall that was safe whether it was cement or whatever. They nixed that too. So, they never carry a logic one after another. It’s just there’s a blindness and a madness of well, this is just what we want to say and then you start looking for reasons. Well, like, what are you thinking and what are you doing. And we’ve had a lot of discussions about various people and judgments and I always back up and you too and we kind of go, you know what? We’re giving too much credit to these people. They don’t really have reasons. It’s kind of like it’s just an instinct with them. I think it’s beyond just instinct level. You have God withdrawing his Holy Spirit, drawing his presence or his ability, not his ability but holding back that wall he has and just allowing mankind to reap what it’s sown and we see this increasing.

The great problem you’re going to have here is while this article is true in what it’s saying. The deception comes in believing because you’re not afflicted yet by madness that you will never be afflicted by the madness. And we’re going to get into that today. The danger here is with those who claim the name. We already know world is going to dissipate itself into all kind of blindness, confusion of mind, and just a kind of a madness that’s going on. There’s only one solution and that is to seek the living God. Let’s go to 2 Chronicles chapter 15 verse 3, and talking again to the Christian church or those who claim the name. You have to be an individual that is continuing and increasing working out your salvation with fear and trembling. Something the church, you just don’t see it. It’s just not there. Going to read 2 Chronicles 15. Let’s read. Go Jacob and read 3-5.

Jacob: For a long time, Israel was without the true God, without a priest to teach and without the law. But in their distress, they turned to the Lord, the God of Israel, and sought him, and he was found by them. In those days it was not safe to travel about, for all the inhabitants of the lands were in great turmoil.”

Timothy: Yeah, go on to verse 6 there.

Jacob: “One nation was being crushed by another and one city by another because God was troubling them with every kind of distress.”

Timothy: Now, there’s in verse 6 there, 2 Chronicles 15 sound exactly like the United States.

Jacob: Yes.

Timothy: One nation was being crushed by another. We’ve got all kinds pockets of war going on. Everybody talked about that and one city against another city. You got Chicago against Texas or Houston or whatever it is. You got people shipping these illegal and they are illegal immigrants to different parts of the city to shift the blame. So, one city is what? Going against another city. And then there’s all kinds of stuff going on. We literally have planes flying and doors are coming off. I just shake my head. We don’t have time again today, but there’s one now a plane is getting ready to take off and the front wheel just comes off. Now the pilot in that plane doesn’t know that the wheels come off and they’re all lined up. You know how they’re lined up on the tarmac there?

Jacob: Yeah.

Timothy: And the plane behind him or beside him goes, hey buddy, you got a wheel that came off. And there’s this whole discussion about well where’d the wheel go? And we’ll get somebody out here. I mean they’re handling very calm, but it’s hard to believe inside they’re going. Yeah, this is nuts. There is just great turmoil that’s increasing and increasing. And what’s happening is God is bringing this about. So, let’s stop blaming Democrats and let’s stop blaming Republicans and let’s go in and look in the mirror and go, Lord, what do I need to repent of? What are you trying to get my attention on? How is it that raising or not raising my children or conducting myself in terms of everything in this world? Am I really where I need to be? Am I obeying everything? We go back up to verse 3. Says, “For a long time Israel was without the true God.” So, you got a God going on. You got your idols. You got your culture Christianity but it’s not the true God. Without a priest to teach and without the law. If there’s one thing, one common denominator and you tell me if I’m wrong Jacob that we see throughout all of them is a rejection of things to obey, right?

Jacob: Correct.

Timothy: They’re hostile. There isn’t a movement right now where everybody’s going, oh, let’s dig back into the word and let’s begin to obey everything we see. It’d be nice to find some group too far zealous and to righteousness and you got to pull it back a little bit. Right now, they’re just hostile to it. So, there’s no law and we don’t see the law now in society. God is again, judgement begins with the house of God so God is just beginning with the church, but we’re tending to look at well the Supreme Court’s evil or the police are bad or the prosecutors are bad or whatever it is. The reason God is taking it slow because he could just back up anti-Christ comes on the scene, it’s all over with and done. He’s trying to give all of us time to seek him, and that’s exactly what it says in verse 4. “But in their distress, they turn to the Lord.” And you don’t see that going on. You see people turning to logic. You see people, you see debates going on, right? But do you see a turning to the Lord, Jacob?

Jacob: No.

Timothy: And not just the Lord, the God of Israel and it says, when they sought him, he was found by them. So, he’s offering mercy and grace. Let’s quit worrying about airplane doors that blow off or supreme courts and justice systems or police or prosecutors that literally are losing their mind. They are literally losing their mind. That shouldn’t be our focus. I’m not telling you not to go back out the Holy Spirit leads to rebuke those things and hold up the truth and to call them to repentance, but that’s not where we begin. We begin at looking in that spiritual mirror looking at Jesus Christ and letting him bring the conviction, the shame, the guilt, it’s called repentance. It’s called revival. If you hope to escape what we’re going to look at here in just a few moments. Anything before we kind of press on?

Jacob: No.

Timothy: Let’s remind everybody the central scripture that we’ve been looking at which is Deuteronomy 28:28. It says, “The Lord will afflict you with madness, blindness, and confusion of mine.” It may be Satan that’s no doubt influencing the Supreme Court or your local prosecutor or your local police or your school teacher or, go down the list. Everybody’s being but God is in charge. He oversees it on. So, when he backs up, he’s responsible for allowing it to take place. We’ve discussed that in another podcast. So, the Lord will afflict you with madness and we’re seeing this madness increase and eventually the whole world is just going to go insane. In other words, it’s nuts to ignore the hypocrisy in the church. It’s just literally nuts.

Alright, let’s go to another article here. Jacob, take us to “ZeroHedge.com”, titled this article is “Davo’s, Trust, & The End of Comfortable Wolves.” What the article’s essentially about is that those in charge, those in the elite, tend to look at us as dumb sheep. Though we will just do whatever we’re told to do. The article is really just making the point that eventually when you withdraw enough comfort and when you withdraw enough of freedoms and you harass people, it’ll reach a tipping point where people will rebel. The French revolution was a classic example. They were upset at the powers of beat, so the French revolution comes in. That goes overboard then the people rise up and they stop that from happening. It takes a lot to get there and that’s the article’s about.

So let me read a little bit of what he wrote. I’m trying to see who wrote that. It’s authored by via Gold, Goats n Guns blog. And he wrote, “But at the heart of my observation is who will you really become when you have nothing left to lose?” Good question. And that’s the question that we’re opposing. Who will you be really become when you are pushed so far in the corner when they literally are taking your children, all your money, all your freedom, your health? We could go down the line. Who will we be? And that’s central point. That’s what God is looking upon those who claim the name. We already know what the world’s going to become. We already know what the ungodly going to be, but you’ve got this whole group of people. Remember Jesus said, there would be a great falling away of those who claim his name. What will we be when all of God just brings us all in and brings a delusion will we believe it or not.

Let me continue reading on with what he says, “Or better yet where’s your lost threshold before the real you bares your canines.” In other words, he goes, we’re not dumb sheep, we’re wolves and if you just provoke us long enough, we’ll come alive. He he’s missing a central point here I’m going to get to in a moment. He is correct but it’s not going to turn out how he thinks it is. “I still don’t think this idea is that far out there.” Well, it’s not. Honestly, the more I think about it, the more it should inspire people to action. I agree but not action of guns and gold and all that. That’s not going to work. “He’s eventually, if he doesn’t come to the full gospel, going to believe a lie. He will become just as mad as the Democrats. He’ll become just as mad and blind and full of confusion as the Supreme Court.” How do I know this? Well, look at his next statement. “You’re not a bad person. You’re not a bad person, stupid or apathetic. You’re comfortable.” You know it, I know it, and I know what I am. We are all bad people.

Let me ask you a question just on a side note, because we covered this long time ago. Jake, have you ever heard of anybody that’s had a psychotic event in their life, where they kind of lose it mentally and did a bunch of good?

Jacob: No.

Timothy: I’ve never heard of and there may be a case out there. Somebody let me know. Where somebody has a psychotic event where you mentally lose it and they go around just doing a bunch of good deeds. No, they always do something. In fact, there’s a case this woman. She’s with her boyfriend. She takes two hit of something in a bong. I couldn’t tell you what it is and it’s laced with something else, right? So, then she stabs him about 200 times. Well of course, the prosecutors and the defense let her off because she wasn’t in her right mind. She had a psychotic event because she was smoking the bong. Now doesn’t that sound a little crazy to you just on the surface of things?

Jacob: Yes.

Timothy: Because is she not responsible for taking the two hits on the bong? Isn’t she responsible for choosing a boyfriend that does drugs?

Jacob: Yes.

Timothy: And yet the man, I don’t know if they even have bothered with logic. The article kind of went on. They quoted the law. Whatever. Everybody quotes the law, but they’re twisting the meaning and applying and it comes very convenient. So, she’s like stabbing 200 times and she gets off. I think because she’s a woman. And for no other reason. It it’s just crazy. It doesn’t really matter. Again, I’m probably imposing some logic on these two. This defense attorney and this prosecutor that just doesn’t even exist. Point is that we’re all bad people. We all need to repent to the core. If we just stop doing good, what naturally comes up is just evil. There’s nobody neutral. Doesn’t everybody have to kind of work at being a good person, Jacob?

Jacob: Yeah.

Timothy: Is there a time when I’ll make a person where you could just back and today, I’m just not going to strive to be a good person but goodness would still follow?

Jacob: No.

Timothy: I haven’t been able to achieve that one except by the grace of God who changes me where perseverance finish its work so that character is developed. But in and of itself, I told everybody like in a seminar or whatever it’s okay stop being good just get neutral about it. Madness, sin, corruption would take place. Let’s play our next clip and this is Alex Jones who most people know and what you’re going to see here is Alex Jones is known for revealing truth about what the leader up to, right Jacob? Whether he’s right or not on all things, I’m probably it’s even deeper than he can even point out. He’s known for now being correct on a lot of things. He was let back onto Twitter, right? And that was because he had come up with some correct things.

Well, play this clip and I want you to contemplate as you listen what he is saying is proving that he one day too will become mad, confused of mind, and believe a lie, because he’s not living the full gospel. He’s not a disciple of Jesus Christ. He may be exposing certain truths right now or let me rephrase it. He’s exposing certain facts now, but he does not have the truth because only Jesus Christ is the truth. Everything else is a lie apart from Jesus Christ. Let me repeat that. Everything is a lie or confusion or messed up apart from Jesus Christ. It’s only Jesus Christ who is the truth. The way and the life. Anything else is corruption is impurity and God is going to be sure that if you won’t love his son with all your heart, all your mind, all your soul that you will believe the lie. It’ll be that power Go ahead and play it Jacob.

Video: 2023 is over. 2024 the most important year so far in human history’s here. We’re at the crossroads right now. That’s the fire of liberty. Humanity’s desire for freedom. Against the great reset Clau Schwab, Bill Gates and the World Order. And I believe in the fire of humanity. I bet on you. I bet on humanity being a space fairing nation. A space fairing world. And setting up humanity 2.0. What Elon Musk is talking about. We can do this together. We have a vision to challenge the globalist and their dystopic depopulation agenda. We can break the back the new world order. We have to build our own vision. I’ll see you on the other side in 2024.

Timothy: Any comments on that Jacob?

Mid Point

Jacob: I didn’t quite catch where you said like that, he in his own words is saying he’ll, I didn’t there was something about you had said earlier like he admits he will fail or.

Timothy: No, I’m saying that.

Jacob: Oh okay.

Timothy: He didn’t say he’s delusional.

Jacob: Yeah.

Timothy: He says, we can overcome.

Jacob: Correct.

Timothy: We can create our own vision. Play it again because I don’t want there to be any confusion about what he’s saying. Every single sentence he states is wrong. Is false and he’s trying to ride in on Elon Musk not Jesus Christ. Everything about what he’s about to say is wrong on every level. Go ahead and play it one more time.

Video: 2023 is over. 2024 the most important year so far in human history’s here. We’re at the crossroads right now. That’s the fire of liberty. Humanity’s desire for freedom. Against the great reset Clau Schwab, Bill Gates and the World Order. And I believe in the fire of humanity. I bet on you. I bet on humanity being a space fairing nation. A space fairing world. And setting up humanity 2.0. What Elon Musk is talking about. We can do this together. We have a vision to challenge the globalist and their dystopic depopulation agenda. We can break the back the new world order. We have to build our own vision. I’ll see you on the other side in 2024.

Timothy: You can’t break the back of God. He is allowing and bringing about the great delusion to pay back mankind for this kind of pride and arrogance. Any comments on this so far Jacob?

Jacob: Well, I just think it’s interesting that Alex Jones he’s, I’m using quotes. He’s smart. He can remember a lot of information. He can talk very quickly, right? And piece a lot of things together but in his video, he doesn’t ever mention the word “God,” but in the post, he uses the word “God”. And the only thing I think that’s interesting is because even at his core, he’s not Christian. It’s not even a belief in God, right? I’m using quotes. That’s not the rhetoric but then he slips it in the post because yeah, it’s all worthless, it doesn’t matter. Yeah, what he’s doing is not going to work.

Timothy: I’m glad you caught that because as I’m looking at the post and listen to him, I inserted that he mentions God but he mentions it in the post but not.

Jacob: He mentions it in the post, but not in his rhetoric. You know what I mean? So, like out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks. It’s not even in his heart. In fact, I could be totally wrong and I may be, but I feel like it’s only recently that now that he’s more popular now that he’s been correct on a lot of things in the past. Only now is I guess he’s sort of aligning himself with conservative Christians. I’m using quotes, and then of course the conservative Christians who like you were just talking about earlier. They’re not actually focusing and repenting and turning to God, they’re just turning to other conservative type people. So, he’s latching on to the Christian thing, the Christians are latching on to him because he was right and yeah, it’ll all it won’t work.

Timothy: I know a little bit more not much when you do, but there’s always been a Christian like a God theme through his stuff. So, actually you’re bringing up the other point. He’s kind of downplaying the God putting it in the post and latching on to Elon Musk.

Jacob: Yes, yeah exactly that’s who he mentions.

Timothy: Yeah, Elon Musk is not serving Jesus Christ, he’s so what what’s he serving?

Jacob: Yeah.

Timothy: If he’s not serving Jesus Christ, guess who he’s serving? Alright, my main point because we’ve kind of muddled through all of that. Second Thessalonians 2:11 tells us exactly what is going to happen. Go ahead and read it Jacob. We’ve looked at it many times, but we’re going to look at it again.

Jacob: 2 Thessalonians chapter 2 verse 11, “For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie.”

Timothy: 2 Thessalonians 2:11 talks about the fact that people will not accept the truth, the full gospel, the complete gospel of Jesus Christ, the message of the cross. And so, for that alone, God will send a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie. Can Alex Jones resist God? Can Elon Musk resist God? Can anybody resist God?

Jacob: No.

Timothy: Not at all. The odds of us believing the lie is not based upon, well, I know the truth and I’m going to hold on to it and I’m always going to remember Jesus and I’m always going to read inscription. It won’t matter. God’s power come along. Look at Pharaoh in the Old Testament had a darkness around him that it says, they could feel. “God has the power to send a delusion so that we believe a lie.” He’s just going to give us what we want and what it amounts to is when we live impure lies whether that’s an impure Christian life or an impure life at all in terms of action that makes us vulnerable to God coming along and saying, okay, I’m just going to give you life, because you refuse all my corrections, all my script, you refuse the ways of God, the commands of God, the Holy Spirit, my voice. Remember the Deuteronomy says, “You would not gladly serve the Lord in your time of prosperity.”

So, God’s going to repay us because people have not founded a joy to dive in and look at all. Look at the hostility, the well, a lot of us just ignoring or the battle against it. You just bring up the scriptures. We shouldn’t have tattoos. Women should be busy at home. Those are just bay seek things in Jesus Christ. We need to hate dissepiment. Though just quote the scriptures. I mean, all the confetti goes up, the alarm goes up, the flags go up. No, you can’t do that. You should do legalism if they even, most of them don’t even bother to fight anymore. They just flat out ignore. They really think they’re going to escape the powerful delusion that the almighty God who created the whole universe. They think they’re going to escape that. I assume Jacob, right? I guess that’s part of the lie.

Jacob: Yes. Well, oh yeah, I guess yeah, most people think. Well, isn’t that, that’s just human nature that it won’t happen to me, I’ll be fine. That’s just the classic thing. It won’t happen to me.

Timothy: Its true. There are so many lies out there from that life has meaning, find your purpose, all that. Life only has one meaning and that’s one determination whether you love God with all your heart, mind, and soul, and strength or you don’t. That’s all life is about. This is just the waiting room for heaven or hell. Everything else is peripheral and you’re wasting your time. Let’s move on to Mark chapter 13 verse 22, and I want to take this a little bit slow and kind of dig into it a little bit. Jacob, read Mark 13:22 and let’s consider the fact that what will happen is the world’s going to be in great turmoil, and it will be a bunch of plain doors flying off, wheels coming off, people flooding the border, famines going on.

I really don’t care if it’s disease exes let loose in the world. There’s going to be a whole lot of stuff. Wars and rumors of wars and all kinds of turmoil because God is troubling the land and what we’re not see is prayer groups that are involved in repentance. We’re not finding churches and pastors saying, we all need to repent. We really need to ask God. Send us your Holy Spirit. Now, while it’s convenient to do so because they’ll come a time that if we ignore this, we will as a church, as a congregation, those who claim the name. If we don’t repent, God will enter into our soul come into our heart and he will make sure that we believe a lie. Verse 22, Mark 13. Read it, Jacob.

Jacob: “For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect–if that were possible.”

Timothy: Think about the power of what’s going on here for false Christ and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect. That has to be some pretty powerful miracles, right?

Jacob: Correct.

Timothy: Has to be some very strong and deep and hard and dark signs. I mean, with all the technology going on and the holograms, wouldn’t logic kind of dictate. Let’s just say somebody who’s coming along and doing a bunch of miraculous looking things, but it looked like a hologram. Would people flock to that and go, oh well, I’m going to follow them. We people would rationally, I would well some people would rationally say, what’s a false Christ, a false prophet, right?

Jacob: Yeah.

Timothy: Well Jesus is warning us ahead of time that the signs and miracles that would come would be so powerful that those who are of the elect would be tempted to believe it’s true. That’s how it will be and unless you have the grace of God in your life and the cross of Christ on your back and you’ve been crucified to Christ and you have a perfect love for God that drives out all fears and there’s an obedience there and a surrender to God. God will ensure that you believe the light. That’s how powerful it would be. I can give you scenarios. Aliens are a big talk and we’ve talked a little bit about that. Aliens show up, they go, hey, guess what? Jesus Christ was one of us and we gave him some of our DNA and he structured it and it just kind of went south and you killed him, and look at all these miracles and they bring in I don’t know proof that Jesus Christ is not the son of God and they do all the miracles and things that are going on. I would have to say a lot of people just on that category would probably start believing it. Correct?

Jacob: Correct.

Timothy: But then the miracles and signs would are going to be so great even the elect, I’m going to use the word temptation because I just don’t even know of any other way to kind of emphasize it. They’re going to be tempted to go, hm, did I make a mistake? Do I need to adjust my doctrine? Maybe that’s correct. We’re without food. There’s no peace in the world. There’s turmoil. There’re struggles going on. God’s powerful delusion. People are going back and forth. Enemies are hating each other. You really think Alex Jones or the Conservatives or Elon Musk or conservative Christianity or the cultural Christianity. We already know that the so-called bad democrats and the so-called bad liberals and all that. They’re going to usher that in but God’s just kind of holding it back, so this doesn’t all collapse at once. But there will come a time when this delusion will happen and these false Christ and false prophets will come. And they’ll be so powerful that even those that are the elect would be deceived, and the reason why they’re not deceived is because grace of God, the obedience in their life, the purity of their heart, their minds are controlled by the Holy Spirit which only happens because you hate your own life and you’ve given up your thoughts and you surrendered everything and while the rest of the world is taking the mark so they can eat and survive because that’s coming.

Elon Musk is not going to stop and in fact he’s helping to usher in, not necessarily intentionally or not but everything is moving that direction. Even Alex Jones is diverting people away from what they should be doing. You get all wrapped up in following him and thinking, oh, we can redo this thing and we got a new hope and we can create a new you and a new what, universe and society and be a space people and travel out there. And you got Star Trek pulled in there, you got space exploration, you got all kinds of thing. He’s pulling up everything that’s in there. And so, when these people come along, these false Christ, these false prophets, maybe they come from space, I don’t really know. Maybe they come out the bottom of the earth, maybe it’s both and then they come along doing all these things that are in accordance with all that. It won’t be a matter of Alex Jones, Elon Musk, Trump, whoever it is going, hm, this doesn’t really seem right. Not only would they naturally gravitate to it, because people gravitate to power by nature. But God will ensure that by that time, the madness, the confusion of mind, the turmoil in the land and everything is so great. It’s an easy thing for God to just kind of give the delusion to believe. Comments Jacob?

Jacob: Sobering.

Timothy: Very sobering. Very sobering. Let’s go to Revelation chapter 13 verse 4. Many years ago, IBM had when they first started their big computer, the people IBM acts referred to that mainframe computer as “the beast”. There’s almost this open acknowledgement or understanding of what’s coming out and men are powerless to stop it and we keep embracing it. It’s kind of like demons. Demons have to destroy. There’s no way they just inhabit somebody and then don’t seek to destroy. It’s who they are. In the same way, you see court systems, they always gravitate to injustice. They always gravitate to the absurd. They always strain on that and swallow camel. They always take decades to fix anything that was injustice, right?

I mean, they just always do it. In spite of tremendous and you’ve got people flooding the border. You got people dying. You’ve got terrorists coming in who are openly boasting. You’ll know who I am and you’ll know what I’m going to do. You got our planes doors flying. I know I keep coming back that because it’s like that’s indicative. We think we’re flying high and doors are coming off. Bolts are missing. It’s just nuts on every level. God’s like, anyway, it’s the beast and this was this was many decades ago and now of course now we have AI and everything is coming along. It’s not a conceivable to believe that the beast obviously is AI who now they’re talking about has consciousness and being and thinking. They want to do away with elections because AI would do a better job and right now things are little bit comfortable. Remember the other article right now, we’re kind of wolves because we enjoy our comfort and eventually that’s taken away.

Well, the problem is when that is taken away when the comfort is gone, we’re not going to rebel against the French people or the French government or the Democrats, whatever. We’re going to look to AI. We’re going to look at whatever the beast is to solve the problem. We’re not going to be able to overthrow anything. For one thing, God has promised that the anti-Christ will rule with iron. You’re not going to overcome what’s about to happen. That’s why again, Alex Jones is completely wrong. You’re not going to overcome. He’s just, you’re being diverted. He’s going to come in. He’s going to take your house. He’s going to take everything. Then, there’s a spiritual dimension for which God then at that point is going to be and allow however that happens for you to believe the delusional lie. You’ll just be forced in a corner.

One basic simple example Jesus said, and I’ve said it a thousand times and I’ll say 1000 times again. “We are to hate and despise money.” If you’re not being taught by the Holy Spirit and the cross of Christ in your life to hate and despise money when the anti-Christ comes along and says, look, you got to take the mark in order to buy or sell, you will do it. You will do it. The only way we overcome the antichrist is by a surrender to the truth. And by that, I mean, not some logical doctrinal thing set out, but by surrendering to Jesus Christ who has taught us to hate and despise money, and to lose our own life for him. I could go down the line. That’s just one angle unless you’re being taught these things and repenting in these things and moving forward with these things, you will take the mark.

Whatever justification you have, whatever instinct, I don’t really know. That’s really not my point. The point is you cannot resist God and if you’re not in a right relationship with him and just that one thing. Hating and despise he made that one thing. Isn’t that central Jacob to the whole talk about the antichrist. Doesn’t even the culture Christian church talk about it?

Jacob: Yes.

Timothy: Everywhere. Oh, we’re going to have to take the mark, to the mark. Alex Jones talks about everybody talks about it. Well how come nobody’s talking about the solution? How come the Christian community is buy your gold, buy your silver, get medication, be prepared. It’s like, what? The solution is not in keeping your life and trying to keep it all together. We should be getting before God on our knees right now saying, God, teach me to hate and despise money. Crucify me to this world. Put me through the suffering process now so that I can overcome the beast when he finally comes along and says, take the mark of the beast because it be combined with miracles that would deceive the elect.

It won’t be just okay we’re walking along and then somehow there’s this central bank and you got to come along with the bank and sign up. It’s not going to be that convenient, folks. That’s all being set down. What’s going to happen is the economies are going to crash. Turmoil’s going to happen in order to survive in the everybody. What do you, everybody will have to say and want oh I want the mark. Let’s get this thing organized. Let’s get it over and then they’re going to talk about a new in a new world, know that and the antichrist gains more and more power. Kind of laid out pretty clear Jacob what’s really going to take place?

Jacob: Yes.

Timothy: Revelation 13:4, “Men worshiped the dragon.” And now why did they worship the dragon? Because he had given authority to the beast the dragon is obviously Satan and he’s giving power to the beast so will the beast let’s say the beast is the computer just for AI just I could be totally wrong It could be something totally different, but let’s just kind of go with that for a moment. It’s Satan that’s going to empower the AI. Haven’t we already bumped into that? I mean they’ve asked the AI questions, right? Like you going to take over the world? Oh yeah, I’m going to destroy humans. Oh yeah. It’s kind of out there. Isn’t the AI sort of saying that kind of thing Jacob?

Jacob: I don’t know because I haven’t read, but I believe you.

Timothy: Okay. It’s been saying people are scared why you think they’re backing off of some AI. Everybody’s got kind of spooked about it. Anyway, “men worship the dragon because he had given authority to the beast.” So, with the AI, could the AI actually have consciousness? I won’t debate that term for a moment. Well, it could have demons flowing around in there using that as a tool and somehow are connected together? Don’t know. Alright, “and they also worshiped the beast.” So, they worship the dragon and the beast at the same time. The dragon is doing all kinds of miracles. He has his dark apostles. He has the Antichrist, the man of perfect self-esteem.

And they also worship the beast and asked, “Who is like the beast and who can make war against him.” We’re not going to overcome what is about to happen the antichrist and the beast will conquer will do it, it’s happening everything will be lost everything will become crashing down for a true disciple of Jesus Christ they will lose everything That’s why all through the Book of Revelation it’s warning and says they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death. There will come that point in time when, okay, it’s all or nothing. Well how do we survive? It isn’t enough to talk about this. Okay this sounds bad. This is terrible and it is bad. It is terrible. Well how do we overcome? Well let’s go back to John chapter 6 verse 65. Jacob, go and read John 6:65.

Jacob: John 6:65. He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the father has enabled him.”

Timothy: The only way that we could survive such powerful miracles, such overwhelming power as the beast and the dragon is if God enables us. To the degree that we live the Christian life under own power makes us vulnerable to the lie, to the delusion. And for many people, they’re pretty much just operating under own power in the name of Jesus Christ. Unless the Father enables us to stand, we will not stand. There’s going to be this and we’re not being raptured out. There’s going to be this great contest between these powerful false prophets, these miracles, the beast, the dragon, all of that coming down with miracles, all these powerful things going on. It will be only by the grace of God in a person’s life that they will be able to resist.

All the logic, all the reasoning, all the gold in your bank account, all the food story just going on, whether you’re caught up in your shots or not is not going to make it. That’s why in John 6:66. I’ll point it out again. Look at those numbers. 6:66. The whole church knows about 6:66. Most of the world knows about 6:66. Ozzie Osborne knows about 6:66. “From this time, many of his disciples, these are disciples of Jesus turned back and no longer followed him.” God was not and I’m using this in a worldly term, not able to enable them to follow. By what I mean by that is he looked at their heart, they looked at what’s there. In his infinite wisdom, he goes, I can’t, they’re too impure, they’re not surrendered, their motives are unclean, they won’t surrender everything. They will not serve me in a time of prosperity. They don’t hunger and thirst for righteousness. They’re not digging to the word of God. They’re not becoming an obedient people. They’re not prepared. I’m not going to enable the Luke warm, the half warm, the three-quarter warm. I’m only going to enable true disciples and even Jesus, we don’t have time to look at, it turns to the apostles and said, do you want to leave too?

This is a powerful thing. If God does not enable you or your children or your favorite grandmother or whoever it is to stand firm during the last days, they will not stand. They will turn you in, they will believe the delusion, they will believe the lie, they will come after you

That’s why in Mark chapter 13 verse 22, Jesus again says, “For false Christ and false prophets will appear and perform signs and miracles to deceive the elect–if that were possible.” That’s how powerful it’ll be and so Jesus says in Mark 13:23, “So be on your guard.” Do you see the church the cultural Christianity the Christians at large on guard about this thing.

Jacob: No.

Timothy: No, they think because, oh, I understand the antichrist or I understand this or I have the truth or these are my doctrinal beliefs. They think, they’re going to, there’s no on guard. There’s no on guard to be sure we hate despise money. There’s no on guard to hate your father and your mother your wife and children your brothers and sisters. There’s no on guard to call a curse down on anybody who doesn’t love Jesus Christ. There’s no zeal, there’s no on guard. Jesus says, “So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.” There’s no excuse. They read these scriptures. They highlight them. They’re there. They can pick them up. Reno, those who carry their Bible to church, but they’re not on guard. Jacob, take us out of here.
