Shalom-shalom; peace in the name of Yeshua. This is Crystal Sharpe and welcome to the Ancient Scrolls program. Today is the first day of the week, Sunday, November 18th; and my favorite holiday turkey day is Thursday. Only 43 days until New Year’s.
Let us pray.
We come before You in the name of Yeshua. We thank You for being God, for being the King of the universe and over heaven and earth. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world and those who dwell therein. The joy of the Lord is my strength. I ask You to cleanse me from all unrighteousness so my prayers will not be hindered.
The Shema proclamation:
Shema, O America, the Lord our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength.
We continue to pray for the release of the Spirit of repentance.
I confess the sins of this nation before you: the murder of the unborn, child molestation, child sacrifice, human trafficking, sexual vices, adultery, idolatry, fornication, sodomy, zoophilia, witchcraft, charismatic witchcraft, drug addictions, which is sorcery according to Revelation 9 and chapter 18, and this nation is guilty of afflicting the poor.
We pray for Your people in the nations who are suffering for Your name’s sake. We pray that You will give them a quick release from this life of torment. Your people are enduring extreme circumstances such as starvation, they are imprisoned, pursued, continually raped, burned alive, tortured, and drowned. The world cannot kill them enough. The hatred of You is real today as it was when the world crucified Your Son.We pray You will strengthen them, and help them to remain faithful.
We continue to pray for President Trump and ask that You would turn his heart to You. We pray that You would cleanse him from all unrighteousness, and that he would be a pursuer of Your righteousness and justice. We ask that You would send angelic powers to protect him.
We had watched the evening news a couple of times last week and California is again enduring devastating fires. They have been in a drought going on 6 years now. Towns are being eaten up by the fires with the wealthy having to be evacuated this time.
It was earlier this year their Congress passed a bill to ban the Bible from organizations that ministered from the Word to those who were in bondage to sins such as homosexuality, and gender confusion. Apparently there were increasing testimonies of successes where God was delivering people from their sexual addictions, from their slavery to sins.
While the state of California’s Congress was busy fine tuning the bill and debating it on the floor there were some courageous people who came forward and gave understanding that this bill would also ban the Bible in other organizations as well, such as Bible Studies, and bookstores. Thank God this bill did not pass the Senate. The bill will keep being reintroduced until it finally passes.
Definitely the persecution of God is real in California. The state’s reprobates did not seek to ban any other book except the Bible. I rejoice in this because the reprobates in California help prove the most valuable of all books is the Bible.
Why would they feel so threatened by one book, of all books that could be banned—porn could be banned, Harry Potter, vampire, superstitious witchcraft books could be banned, but no—just one book; the Bible.
The most esteemed book among the reprobates, and those with seared consciences in California is the Bible. We should understand that if they put that much value on a book then perhaps we should also. I am so thankful that in this great darkness the reprobates in California would point us to the where the light really is.
To some who may think that I am just kicking California while they are down. Well no. California is an example to the nation that sins have consequences. If a people do not want God then He does not have to assist any of them in their time of distress. He doesn’t have to send rain to put out the fires because the state has prohibited Him from assisting them. People want it both ways; hate God and still receive the blessings of His goodness. It doesn’t work that way.
California is getting slammed with a hepatitis outbreak, people defecating on the streets, men sodomizing each other in view of everyone, they are dealing with the plague of homelessness, which has now increased because of people being dispossessed by the fires. The state is under the curse of drug addictions; the reprobate Governor Brown released 10,000 child molesters from prisons, there are already so many child molestations the courts are unable to process them; they are in a drought; consumed by fires; and three weeks ago a gunman killed 12 people at a bar in Thousand Oaks. Thousand Oaks once made the list of the top 15 places that would be safe to live, but one abnormal personality with a gun changes that status.
Governor Brown last Monday said this concerning the fires: “it is no longer the new normal, but the new abnormal”. It’s the new abnormal. I didn’t know they could understand abnormal.
Abnormal now looks apocalyptic from the videos on the news. Sin literally consumes a nation. Their sex gods are turning on them, their witchcraft voo-doo dolls, their drugs, their violence, their hatred and persecution of God is turning on them. Every night is Halloween in a real sense now.
God is merciful and approachable. He may send rain to help California. He does not have to. Leadership in California reflects those people who voted for them, they are the will of the people—not all people, of course; just the majority.
Not all people agree with perversions and deviance. Not all people agree with pedophilia. Not everyone agrees with idolatry, or witchcraft, or teaching children to be sexually confused. I think with what is going on in California if I lived there I would try to make arrangements to leave. I would move on to another state. California was once a prosperous state, but its prosperity is being consumed. These fires have economically devastated the state.
It is truly a sad situation there. The holidays are here with Thanksgiving and Christmas in a month, and these people are living in tents donated to them. Now it is very cold there, but many have their lives and that is a lot. It is grievous, no doubt.
We were watching this one particular evening and the reporter stated the firemen were worn out from fighting all the fires. We are affected by these images of billowing smoke, of red fire lines across the valleys and hills, the planes and helicopters maneuvering substances of flame retardants and water on areas; this constant movement of men and vehicles.
I was reminded of a scripture in Jeremiah 51:58
Thus says the LORD of hosts:
The broad walls of Babylon shall be utterly broken, and her high gates shall be burned with fire; the people will labor in vain, and the nations, because of the fire; and they shall be weary.
They will weary themselves trying to put out the fires.
Sins are extreme and fire is extreme; both consume and leave nothing behind, but loss.
I am thinking it may not improve for California, and so as devastating as these fires are I would take what I had left and leave. If the rains would come then they would have to deal with the mudslides taking out homes, and roads. Then the cycle would start again with the fires. Watching California is like watching a train wreck, you can’t help but look at it as you drive by.
If these leaders do not repent before God and apologize to Him for their actions against Him; I don’t see how their situation will improve. There may be minimal improvement, short-lived improvement, but nothing long term until they repent and turn to God.
I would encourage those who still have some semblance of righteousness to move before it perhaps becomes worse and there will be no more a way of escape.
And I heard another voice from heaven saying: Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her inquities.
In time of judgment, and people are saying to me these are judgments on California, in time of judgment—the best thing to do is get out of the way.
Here is another example in Genesis 18 and 19.
Three divine beings visit Abraham and Sarah. They have several missions that day. They tell Abraham and Sarah they will have a child; and they depart re on their way to Sodom, after giving these righteous people excellent news that they would have a son. Abraham begins to intercede for Sodom and Gomorrah.
The two angels arrive in the evening to Sodom. Lot understands them to be men, and he encourages them to stay at his house. It looks as if this happens at the time of the spring, because Lot makes them a feast and they eat unleavened bread.
The homosexuals soon learn of these two strangers being in Lot’s house and they demand to have them delivered to them so they all may sodomize them. All the men, young and old, all the people from every quarter surrounded the house, and the angels struck them all with blindness.
Then the men said to Lot: Have you anyone else here? Son-in-law, your sons, your daughters, and whomever you have in the city—take them out of this place! For we will destroy this place because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the LORD, and the LORD has sent us to destroy it.
So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said: Get up, get out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city! But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking.
- When the morning dawned, the angels urged Lot to hurry, saying: Arise, take your wife and your two daughters who are here, lest you be consumed in the punishment of the city.
And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife’s hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the LORD being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city.
- So it came to pass, when they had brought them outside, that he said: Escape for your life! Do not look behind you nor stay anywhere in the plain. Escape to the mountains, lest you be destroyed.
- Then the LORD rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the LORD out of the heavens.
So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground.
There were five cities appointed to be destroyed, some would think just two: Sodom and Gomorrah, and some would understand there was a third city, which was called Zoar– meaning “insignificant”, that Lot escaped to before going to the mountains with his two daughters.
The five cities appointed for destruction were Sodom, Gomorrah, Zoar, Admah and Zeboiim; and these were all in the territory of Cham, the son of Noah. Genesis 10:19
What I find interesting is that Zoar was spared because of Lot’s request to go there instead of going to the mountains as instructed by one of the angels.
I am near to the end of the program. A minister told me about a month ago that we are living in perilous times. No doubt our politicians, the wealthy elite, are creating our perilous times. Our constitution is under attack, our basic freedoms are being removed. For a long while when I was sounding the alarm to family and friends—it was terrible, they scorned me until I could say no more. The state of denial is perplexing to me.
If we do not repent, we will go the way of reprobate Canada where righteous people are persecuted. The nazi state there removes the children from their parents if they do not follow the Babylonian draconian ideologies of perversion and deviance.
We are in the end of days and judgments come at the end of days. It is hard to swallow that God is a God of judgments also; because most people adore his Santa Claus image created by perverse shepherds, and TV evangelists. But the Book of Revelation qualifies God as a God who judges the wicked, the perverse, the reprobate, the murderers; those that hate Him and encourages others to do so.
I am going to end the program. Rico Cortes will sing the Aaronic blessing in Hebrew from Numbers 6:24-26.
If it is God’s will I will be here next program. Remember to walk by faith and not by sight. Do two things this week: love and forgive. Ask God to cleanse you from all unrighteousness every day. Keep your spiritual garments clean from wrinkles, spots and wrinkles. Love God, love your neighbor.
