Scripture reading: Matthew 24:15-22

When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)…

When a Jew reads this passage, he understands more of what it is saying than we do. He knows that whenever you take the book in their synagogue, everybody knows that you are going to read and everybody submits his or her mind to you. The Bible says that this thing or person will be standing in the Holy Place church, proclaiming itself as “God” (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4). Have you seen it? The “antichrist,” that is written of in Daniel 11 (“the abomination that maketh desolate”) is standing in the church now and giving orders!

So Jesus said here, “When you see him get up and stand in the Holy Place, FLEE!” “Run! Leave! Leave it! Leave the Holy Place now, because the holy place has become Babylon.” Let me explain it to you. If you turn your Bible around to Revelation and look at Chapter 18, you will see what I am talking about. What I am preaching to you is the exact word that I am getting from the Lord.

Revelation 18:2, “And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.” Is God talking about birds? He is talking about the spirits that occupy the church and the people. It brings it into confusion! It causes “Babylon.” Amen! The spirits of devils working in the midst of the church!

I have been working in this church area for many, many years. I have seen all the demons and the devils that work within the churches and govern the people. The pastor must have a certain amount of psychology. BABYLON must have a psychologist as a minister! When you go to Bible school, one of the chief subjects that you must learn is psychology. You learn how to manage the crowd. You learn how to manage the sister that is “giving trouble.” We always had it as a joke. We would say, “Kick her upstairs!” Do you know what that means? There was a sister who belonged to a church. She came and began to fellowship with us. She was so blessed that she had to take it back to her pastor to show him all the goodies and the books and all like that we were giving. Immediately, she was promoted to choir leader (musical director) in her church. She was so pressed for time that she had no more time to come to our meetings. She just got “absorbed” back into the system. This is what we mean by, “Kick her upstairs!” If a minister is giving trouble, then you would transfer him. “Give him a bigger church!” “Send him off to Bird Mountain!” (A nondescript place.) There is all this psychology being used in the churches.

But then, we also have psychology amongst us. We are using psychology on one another. One bishop used to say, “It is wisdom!” When he would trick you or do you something bad, he would say that it was the wisdom of God. So can you understand then what is happening, and why we have to watch our own temple? Because we too are tempted to go the way of the “abomination of desolation” that is in the middle of the church.

But then, why would God allow the Holy Place to be destroyed? It is because we have come to a new dispensation, and He wants us to move on! Now is the time for you to get into the Holy of Holies! NO MORE FOOLING AROUND! But, guess what? To get into the Holy of Holies, you have to die. Amen. You have to die. I am not talking about physical death, because if you die physically, you won’t earn any more stars or crowns. It is down in your soul that the battle is being fought. We are the church that is fighting, and when we get the devil out of us, we are the ones who will be the overcomers. And the heavens will declare the joy of God that we have overcome.

Thought for today: Remember, it is down in your soul that the battle is being fought. So fight for your life and get the devil out so that you will be the overcomer.

Scripture reading: Matthew 20:25-28

When John the Baptist came on the scene, he started baptizing in the river Jordan. It was a new dispensation. If you were good in the previous dispensation, in this dispensation you would be just a child. Isn’t that what Jesus said? He said that the smallest child in this dispensation would be greater than the greatest prophet (Luke 7:28). Nevertheless, that dispensation (“the dispensation of Christ”) passed and now we have been in a different dispensation (“the dispensation of the fullness”). You cannot look back and begin to live like those in that dispensation over there in the past. You have to be up to mark with the dispensation in which we now live.

Let me read the changing of the dispensation for you. Matthew 25:6, “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.”

We are talking about this dispensation and then another dispensation coming in. When we look at “the dispensation of Christ” and what happened during this dispensation, we see great miracles and wonderful things happening. People were being saved, born-again, delivered, and so and so and so. You have also seen what has happened in these past 2000 years.

But we have now gone into another dispensation (“the dispensation of the fullness”) and the age of the church is finished. Wake up now. God said in His Word that you should not have a “hierarchical church.” That means having a one-man ruler in the congregation (a big Christian and little Christians). You should not have laity and clergy. You know the Word of God. Amen. The idea of having laity and clergy is alien to the true doctrine of Christ (see Matthew 23:8-11; 20:25-26). But the whole system of the church today was built upon having laity and clergy; it is the clergy that must minister to (rule over) the people. One man even came up with a message and claiming that he got it from God saying that we now have what is called a “husband ministry.” As a result of that, the ministers began to look at the church as their “wife” and ministering “themselves” unto the church. You see, when a man ministers to his wife, she brings forth a child that looks like him. Amen! Therefore, in this same church, God smote them with adultery. Are you with me? God allowed them to be smitten with adultery. In one little congregation there were fifteen people swapping wives and husbands! So then, because of the falseness of their doctrine, they went wrong. Once you get the Word of God wrong, your life gets wrong. God smote them with adultery, and eventually He smote them with death. They had several plane crashes in that little group of people and many deaths.

Now, the dispensation of the church age has therefore already come to an end. If you doubt it, go into one of the churches Sunday morning; go into the one that you think is the best church in your area, and let God teach you. You will see that what is going on there has no place in a church. But, you see, God told us beforehand in Matthew 24. Let us look at it. Matthew 24:15-16, “When ye therefore shall see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains.

What is this saying? It is saying that the “Holy Place” church is going to be destroyed. I am not talking about the “Outer Court” church. I am not talking about the denominational people. I am talking about those who have fled from the denominations, have begun to walk in the principles of God and have begun to have the manifestations of the Holy Spirit within their midst, within their souls, and their lives. This scripture says that this is the church that is going to get the antichrist standing up in the midst.

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, December 2003, pg. 13-15)

Thought for today: Let us make sure that we are on our way to the Holy of Holies so that we would not be partakers of the destruction of the Holy Place church.

Scripture reading: Genesis 3:14, 19

Have you ever thought about the destiny of the Holy Place church? Do you know the destiny of the church in the Holy Place? One part of the answer is to enter into Christ. But the other part is to be taken by the anti-Christ. The abomination of destruction is in our midst! Isn’t that weird? The abomination that is going to destroy the world is in the midst of the Holy Place church. This is where the devil wants his seat! These are the people who the devil really wants to rule and reign over! Why? Because this is where he gets the most power! The energy that you have in God is great.

I come in the meeting and sit down. When we start to sing, I can very often feel the energy of God in our midst. This is what the devil wants to feed on! He feeds on energy! God will not give him any, but he gets it from man. This is a master plan! Sometimes you feel that God has really done us badly because he let the devil go on us. But, God ordained that the devil should feed on man. You are devil food! Did you know that? Oh, yes! You are devil food! Remember now, he is after you to eat you. The Bible said, he goeth about seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8). The Bible says that God said to the devil, “Dust shalt thou eat!” Yes! Dust shalt thou eat. Then in the verse below, He calls you the dust. The scriptures I am quoting from are in Genesis chapter 3, “Dust shalt thou eat,” and then in verse 19 he said, “Thou art dust” to Adam! It means to say that God gave Adam the dominion and the power over everything that moves within this realm. But when Adam lost the dominion and power, who got it? The devil. All you see the devil doing, it is our power he is using. So you can imagine how powerful we will be when we take that away from him!

Now, the master plan I was talking about. God said the devil must feed on you. You are the devil’s food. So then, who has the control of the devil? We do! We can starve him out! Starve him out! This is exactly what God is teaching us to do. Don’t let the devil feed on you and don’t let him feed on your brother! Keep praying for every sinner you see out there! Deliver them from the devil so that the devil cannot feed on them. The devil will have to get mad and leave your place! Oh yes. If you begin to stir up enough spiritual energy in the place where you live, the devil will not be able to function! Amen! Praise be to God!

Let me give you an example a little on the reverse side. Some of you may know Andrae Crouch, the Christian singer. He used to have his ladies dressed in black, and they would sing so called Christian music with heavy metal beat. One time he went to Africa with his heavy beat, thinking that Africans love it. During the concert, a man rushed out of the crowd upon the platform and cried, “Stop it! Stop it! Stop it!” He was the sorcerer of that area. He said, “You are calling all my spirits away from me! I can’t get anything done!” That was a blessing to Andrae Crouch. He is not going to do the heavy beat anymore, because, you see, the devils feed on that. So when you see all people dancing, carrying on with the beat, it is the devil they are feeding. All their energy is going to the devil! They are feeding devils.

God, therefore, ordained this so that we will have the handle, and we will use our handle to stop Satan from functioning in our midst altogether!
