The Lord Jesus was tried in two secret courts in the middle of the night, and in two public courtrooms the following day which was a holiday. The two courts held by the chief priests, Caiaphas and Annas, met in secret between midnight and 6 a.m. And that morning, which was “an high day,” the Lord Jesus was judged by Pilot, then seen of Herod, and then of Pilot again. So, from about midnight to 9 a.m., Jesus was found guilty by the Jew's religious leaders of blasphemy, by the governor of treason, and nailed to the cross. This roused little public attention at the time as it was a major holiday. These deceptive tactics are still used today by the devil's boys
The elders in God's church are not the elders in the denominational churches. “Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord...” (James 5:14) No wonder so many churches do not pray for the sick, for they know they are not going to get results.

Many think there are not devil possessed people in America. Of course there are. Some are in prison, some are on medication that short circuits their brains, some are restrained in mental hospitals, and some are wearing three piece suits and preach from behind a pulpit.
When baby Jesus was in the womb of his mother, Caesar's government taxed and took a census of the whole world. They could implement a world tax and census because they had conquered it. This happened when the ungodly aspirations of Babel had been realized, and now they are being realized again. During the first world census and taxation, the Lord came to save. The second time, however, he comes to judge: “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Revelation 19:11-16)

In Tamar's deception, she covered her face with a veil to conceal her identity and played the harlot. (Genesis 38:6-30) Some do the same with makeup.
“And when Jehu was come to Jezreel, Jezebel heard of it; and she painted her face, and tired her head, and looked out at a window.” (II Kings 9:30)
“Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths. For when they had slain their children to their idols, then they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it; and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house. And furthermore, that ye have sent for men to come from far, unto whom a messenger was sent; and, lo, they came: for whom thou didst wash thyself, paintedst thy eyes, and deckedst thyself with ornaments, And satest upon a stately bed, and a table prepared before it, whereupon thou hast set mine incense and mine oil.” (Ezekiel 23:38-41)
“And when thou art spoiled, what wilt thou do? Though thou clothest thyself with crimson, though thou deckest thee with ornaments of gold, though thou rentest thy face with painting, in vain shalt thou make thyself fair; thy lovers will despise thee, they will seek thy life.” (Jeremiah 4:30)
"Rentest” above means: to tear, or divide, or accentuate the natural facial features with paint. Makeup changes the color of the skin, paints the lips, eyebrows, and eyelids with different colors. At one time, it was fashionable to add a brown dot to the check to simulate a mole called a “beauty mark.” There is also tattooing of simulated eyebrows where the natural ones are shaved off. (Leviticus 19:28)
Many preachers who teach on tithing only tithe on their basic salary, and not on their other incomes such as parsonage or parsonage allowance, free utilities, telephones, internet, cable TV, house insurance, family health insurance, car allowance, vehicle insurance, bonuses, holiday and birthday gifts, paid vacations, continuing education tuition and books, and seminars including airfare, hotel, and restaurant reimbursements. Of course, if the preacher is meeting his lover at the seminar, the church doesn't pay for her - or him - because they are his secret.

The cross was The Roman Empire's intimidating sign of terror to its enemies before and after the Lord Jesus was crucified, and is still used today in the same way. Wake up and smell the coffee. Also the Roman Catholic Church uses the cross as its “imprimatur,” or, Rome's approval of religious literature.
Chemical warfare has been going on for a long time:
American Indians were intentionally encouraged to drink liquor by their enemies,which contributed to bad behavior. If the bad behavior went outside the tribe, the army could come and take them to jail, or to reservations (concentration camps), and steal their land.
Chinese ruling classes were flooded with opium by the British Empire (1839-1860) to cripple the function of their government, because the Chinese had restricted British trade. It seems a lot more silver was going into China then going into Great Britain.
Military personal have been intentionally exposed to nuclear bomb tests to track the effects of radiation.
The first recreational drug was alcohol. It compromised Noah's guard, helped Jacob and his mother deceive Isaac, and was in use when Satan dropped a house on Job's children.

If you serve a little of the word of God, you can only feed a few. But if you serve a lot of the word of God, you can feed a lot more. In fact, as in the feeding of the multitudes, you can feed them all until they are stuffed, and have some leftovers for yourself.
The abomination of desolation is sin standing, or happening, in a supposed holy place, or where it obviously ought not to be. Some abominations are homosexual ministers, homosexual marriages, Christmas, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, Halloween, the Darth Vader gargoyle on the National Cathedral, and any objects that are regarded with extravagant respect, honor, or devotion. It is also an abomination for political leaders to condone abortion (killing), and homosexual acts (fornication)
Many religious leaders wear women's clothing that looks like ballroom gowns, silly hats, and ballerina shoes. It's hard to picture them going grocery shopping - or to the bathroom “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman's garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.” (Deuteronomy 22:5)

There are three backslidden conditions and they can be likened to the three people Jesus Christ raised from the dead.
1. Jairus' young daughter was dead for a few minutes or hours. She is like the child who whimsically decides not to believe in Jesus Christ one day, but it is just for a short time.
2. The only son of a widow was being carted off to the bone yard. He is like the longtime apparent apostate; but when the Lord gets close enough for him to hear his voice on the way to hell, he comes back to spiritual life.
3. Lazarus was buried and decomposing. He is like an apostate for decades, and apparently dies a hopeless case; but when the trump of God sounds, he will meet the Lord in the air like others that served him most of their life.
Attending most church meetings is like going to the theater. You sit in auditorium and receive a program of the cast of characters with an outline of the acts and scenes to be performed. On stage are religious props, spotlights for the actors, a sound system to amplify their lines, and, in some cases, ornate costumes. The audience is passed a basket or plate to pay for admission, but lifetime membership can be bought for a perpetual ten percent of one's income. Before the production begins, there are usually announcements, a warm up act of singers or musicians, and after The End, the performers come out to solicit compliments.
