Christ In You (Unleavened Bread - Day 6) - 2017 "VIDEO"

by Michael C. Garrett

Hello everyone! Wherever you might be, here in America or up north in Canada, or down in the Southern Hemisphere, or maybe over on the other side of the pond, or the other side of the world – wherever you might be we welcome you here. Welcome to the weekly church service of the Owensboro Church of Jesus Christ, and my name is Michael C. Garrett. We’re hear to talk about the Word of God. And, just a quick reminder – everything we do here is based upon to the best of our ability, to the best of our knowledge, on the Word of God, the Truth of God, and attempting to explain the Plan of God. And we do that hoping that you, the sheep of Jesus Christ, or the potential sheep of Jesus Christ will have your lives enrichened and maybe come closer to having a complete knowledge of God and His Word. So, again we welcome you here.


The other day I was umpiring a ballgame, way up the river in Meade County in Brandenburg, Kentucky, which isn’t that far from Fort Knox. And my officiating partner is a Baptist minister out of Sacramento in McLean County Kentucky. And his name is Wyndel, I call him Double-yew. And, we were coming home and somehow the discussion got onto religion. Now, I have never shared with Wyndel, I’ve been around him quite a few times throughout the years, but I have never shared with him what I think religiously. And being that he is a Baptist pastor, I knew sooner or later the topic would come up. Well anyway, we’re going down the road and he asked me, “Well Mike, do you belong to a church?” And I said, “Well, yes I do.” “Do you attend there,” he asked. “Yes, we attend there every week, and ever so often a day off.” And he said, “Well what’s the name of your church?” And I said, “Well, the name of our church is the Owensboro Church of Jesus Christ.” He said, “I’ve never heard of that.” I said, “No, I doubt if you have.” And then I said, “But if you want to watch what we do, you can turn to our website – – and there you will find probably 4, 5, 6, pages of sermon’s. Now, the page we’re on now, I think it says Holy Day Sermons – 2017. Or you can go to YouTube and just type in Owensboro Church of Jesus Christ, and a whole bunch of sermon’s will come up.” And somehow, I had stated, “Well, we film those and if you wanna know what I have to say you can find out.” And he said, “What you have to say!?” I said, “Yeah.” He said, “Are you the speaker?” I said, “Yes.” He – I thought we were going to have an accident, he was completely and totally dumbfounded by what I had just said to him. “You’re the guy that gets behind the camera? And you’re filmed?” “Yeah, yeah. There’s probably 250 sermon’s on there.” Well, we got home, and I don’t know if Wyndel will actually turn on the computer – I hope he does. I hope he’s going to eventually read this and read his name. But, if he wants to read these articles or listen to our sermon’s, we’ll be glad to have him to. We do get minister’s from different places ever so often to watch our sermon’s. And Don was telling me this morning that there’s a man from Syria who ostensibly likes our sermon’s, and another lady from the Netherlands. Don puts our sermon’s up on Facebook and he’s all the time getting messages from all different places around the world. That’s why in the introduction I tried to include all different places in the world. This is not just for Americans, this is for humans. And if you can’t understand the English language, or you’re more comfortable reading in your own language, our blogsite up on the right-top will translate the article for you into your language, powered by Google Translate.

Now, in this discussion with Double-yew the other day, he was curious, but he didn’t know what to ask, so he says, “Well, what do you believe?” And I thought – Oh my! It’s an hour-and-a-half back to Owensboro, and that doesn’t even give me time to begin. And I’m sure as a Baptist pastor he did not really want to hear all the things that I might have to say. But I said, “Wyndel, the best way for you to understand me, and what we believe at the Owensboro Church of Jesus Christ, is a word which I made up quite a few years ago. In discussing with people who don’t know what I think. The best way to understand me is to call me a Biblican.” It’s a word I made up, it doesn’t exist, you won’t find it in the dictionary. “A Biblican …” – and when I said that, Wyndel says, “No, I don’t think I’ve ever heard that word before.” And I said, “And what it means is – Wyndel, I am not interested in one bit in propagating or in teaching the traditions – the religious traditions which have been passed down from human beings. They mean nothing to me. I’m not going to support them, I’m not going to try and teach them, I do not believe in them. I reject them. But what I want to do is to know exactly what the Bible says – not what people say – what the Bible says.” And you, very quickly will say, “Well Mike, what are you talking about!?” Well, the churches of the world talk about going to Church when!? On Sunday. Well, Church day – the phrase I like to use – is the seventh-day of the week. We read that in the last sermon, and it’s right here, just a few more sentences down. The seventh-day of the week is what we call Saturday. Now, I don’t think Wyndel could have handled that. I just think – well, we might have had a wreck. I didn’t really want to wreck.

In the News

And concerning the news – well, I’ll tell ya, the news people are wearing me out! I just don’t watch them a lot anymore, but I did hear something this week that caught my attention. Here, within a few days - maybe a week or two – the President Donald Trump is taking off and he’s flying over to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. And while he’s there he’s going to meet a vast contingent of leader’s of Islamic countries. And I don’t know if an American president has ever done that before. And then after that trip to Riyadh – and they’re going to be talking about a new peace process for the Middle East; every American president for decades get’s the hope that he can bring forth a plan that will solve the crisis in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians. And that term Palestinian is an incorrect term. That land in which Jerusalem and the country of Israel is located, parts of Syria and other places, that was once called Palestine. So, Palestine refers to an area and to a location on a map. The term Palestinians was created a few decades ago by that little ugly looking mutt – and forgive me if you’re partial to him, but I thought he was one of the ugliest people I’d ever seen – Yasser Arafat. How many remember him!? Now, Yasser, he’s no longer with us, but he’s the one that coined the phrase Palestinians – and remember he had the PLO (Palestinian Liberation Organization). Now, Yasser was a terrorist! He’d do  anything he could to cause problems for the state of Israel. And then he eventually leapt on this idea that we should be a separate country. And that’s where all the rub is because the Palestinians – so-called – they want Jerusalem to be their capital. And, the Jewish people want Jerusalem to be their capital, and it’s almost an intractable problem. Over the years, especially since the 1967 war, Israel has annexed into its country land that once upon a time the Palestinians thought they were going to own and control. And, I don’t know – I think it would take a super-magician to work out all those problems. In fact, the only way those problems will eventually be solved is the Return of Jesus Christ, the establishment of the government of God and then – and only then – will those issues be solved. But every president thinks he somehow can figure it out. And our new president full of bombast and sort of a false sense of bravado, he thinks now he can do it! Well, they obviously are going to be talking about this, they’re going to have all of the Arab leaders, the Islamic countries in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. And then he’s flying over to Jerusalem, to hang-out with the Israeli governmental people. And I’m sure they’ll be talking the peace process and what can and what cannot happen. And then, the third-leg of his trip – and this is what caught my attention – he’s going to Rome. And to hang-out at the Vatican with the pope.

Now, anyone who understands biblical prophecy – and we’re not gonna do it today, but soon. But the Bible clearly indicates that somewhere down the future, military forces from what we now call Europe – a combination of countries – will invade the Middle East and will take control of Jerusalem. We also know from biblical prophecy that the man who is the leader of the classic historic religion of Europe will set up “shop” in Jerusalem, and we’re told that he will walk into a future temple of God (this is what Paul tells us in Thessalonians) and claim that he is God. So anytime you hear about the Vatican becoming involved in the politics of the Middle East, your ear’s and your eye’s and your senses should perk up. Because there’s potential of having step’s fulfilled which will lead directly to fulfilled prophecy. And I found that very interesting – Riyadh, which is the Islamic people, Jerusalem which is the Jewish people, and then the Vatican and the leader of the church which is based there. So, it’s worth keeping an eye on. And that’s about all I’m gonna talk about on the news today, because most of it just wears me down to no end. And, it seems to me, as I turn on my news shows – now you got, here in America, we have three basic news shows. We’ve got Fox News, which is basically a bit to the right. And some of the commentator’s are much more to the right. But they try to stay fairly neutral. Then you have CNN, and then you have MSNBC. CNN here the last few months has taken a distinct anti-Trump personality, and MSNBC, the people over there seemed to have lost their mind’s! They are so filled with hatred and antipathy towards the new president they seemingly can’t see straight anymore. They have just sort of lost their mind’s! And I don’t care what time you turn that channel on, I don’t care which station you turn to, all you’re gonna here is about what the president said, or what the president did, or what he’s going to do. And they just fascinate about it, they just become obsessed with trying to figure out what’s going on with the president. And quite frankly, I would rather spend time in my backyard with my tree’s.

Politics is a Sport

And a word of warning, and I’ve said this before. I remember a few years ago when I was the festival coordinator up in the ICG feast site in Montgomery, Indiana. I walked up on the stage the first day and I said, “Folks, this will be for the eight-days a politics free zone.” I said, “I don’t want you talking about politics. I don’t want you getting yourselves upset. I don’t want you to get distracted.” Because during these eight days we ought to be talking about the future Kingdom of God, we ought to be talking about the truth of God, we ought to be talking about the principles of the New Covenant, we ought to be talking about Jesus Christ, we ought to be talking about Matthew 6:33, where Jesus says, “’Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.’” – and then all these other thing’s will take care of themselves. He did not say, ‘Seek ye first argument’s about politics.’ Now folks, politics is a sport basically for people who are too old to participate in sports. Now when you’re fifteen or seventeen or twenty-one, you’re young, you’re agile, you’re quick - if you’re an athlete. And you enjoy going out on that ballfield or that basketball court, or tennis court, or soccer field – whatever it might be. And just enjoying the vigor of youth. How many of you remember the joy’s of youth!? Now, how many of you think that you should go out this afternoon and play a game of basketball!? Well, my basketball day’s are two or three decades in my rear view mirror. Basketball is a game for a young person. It’s not a game for someone who is more mature. But you see, after people lose their interest in sports because their out of school – for most people once you get outta school there’s no place to participate in sports, unless you join some type of recreational league. And many of them are poorly organized and the competition is a bit shabby at times. But after a while you’re body says, “I can’t go with sports anymore.” You know, “My knees hurt, my back hurts, may hands hurt, my neck hurts.” Everything hurts. Have I got all the hurts!? But as people mature from their youthful days into their more modern-mature days they lose the ability to compete in sports – even though they can still watch it. But many people then take up the sport of politics. And to me politics is a sport. You got your team. You’ve got your star-players, which are your leading politicians or maybe your commentator’s. There are people who just love Rush Limbaugh. There are people who love Sean Hannity. There are people who use to love Bill O’Reilly, until whatever happened to him happened. I don’t know what happened. But he’s not on the air anymore. So, we have our star’s and we have our politicians, and right now we have on one side people who just cheer Donald Trump, mindlessly, no matter what he says or does, they just cheer. And then on the other side of the ledger we have people who – if Donald Trump jumped into a river and saved a drowning child, they would complain that he should have kept the child from falling into the river. There are people – if Donald Trump somehow figured out how to cure cancer, there are people on the other side who would complain that it took him so long. I mean, in the eyes of some people, Donald Trump is like evil incarnate. And nothing that he says, nothing that he does can be proper. And then on the side you just have this blind loyalty to him. Well folks I’m sort of getting tired of it! As interesting of a personality – whether you love him or hate him – as Donald Trump is, he’s not what we should be thinking about all the time. And, I remember up there at Montgomery – and I’d already given the speech – several years ago, it was a presidential election year, and I said, “This is to be a politics free zone. I don’t want you talking about politics. I don’t want you getting yourselves upset. I don’t want you to get distracted. Just put your mind on God and the Bible.” And yet, even then I learned that one evening there were people who got into a very ugly argument about politics. And one of these arguments was over abortion. And one man who actually claimed to be a member of the Church of God was claiming that abortion was a “good thing.” And he was just incensed that anyone would be against abortion. And obviously there were people on the other side. And I guess it almost went to a bear knuckle brawl!? Now imagine. At a church holy festival people are getting so animated to the point of hatred, to the point of just intense rancor, and displeasure, that they almost got into a fist fight over something they can’t control. Now, I’ve stated my opinion before – I think abortion is murder. Now if you’re alright with murder, okay, I’m not! You know, the commandment we read just last week, ‘Thou shalt do no murder.’ I think you’re murdering an innocent unborn human life. Who knows, a potential Einstein, a potential leader in medicine, you know, maybe someone who could have cured cancer!? And you’re eliminating them from ever having a chance to take their first breath! Well, I’ve talked about that. I won’t apologize for it, and I will never back off from it. But I’m not here to argue that today. I’m just saying that these people got almost into a fist fight over abortion. And then, somewhere else there was a heated argument over discussion’s of political candidate’s! The very thing I said don’t do, they went right into it, when they had a chance! And I just found it very discouraging. And even today, I’m sure that there are church groups where people get into major disagreements over politics. And they do it on the Sabbath day while they’re attending church. And folks, it’s just not good! It’s not good! My suggestion is – stay off the topic. Now I think you can discuss politics in a calm manner. I think I’ve done it many times in my life. But when all of a sudden that becomes your team, and that becomes your player, your star, your captain, your coach, and your not about to let anybody disparage your side, your team – then you have a problem! Folks, LOOK TO JESUS! And, how many times have I said that!? Look to Jesus! And especially on the Sabbath day! If your gonna get together, talk about something that Jesus Christ would talk about. Talk about something about Jesus Christ or the New Covenant, or blessing’s which have come about in your life, or challenges which are coming in the future. And you wish for people’s good thoughts and prayers to be on your behalf. But to dive down into the ugly sewer of politics is just unbecoming and unacceptable – if you wanna know the truth. It’s just unacceptable.


Now, during the Days of Unleavened Bread, we’ve been doing a series called Christ In You. And it’s an explanation of the true ultimate meaning of the Days of Unleavened Bread. If you want to know more about it, be sure to read the previous articles. And we have the night of the Passover Service – 2017, then the FIRST DAY of Unleavened Bread, which was day one of the Christ In You series. Then, the SECOND DAY, the THIRD DAY, the FOURTH DAY, the FIFTH DAY, and today’s part SIX. And again, back in the Worldwide day’s Unleavened Bread was basically put into the category of - “YOU MUST PUT SINNNN OUT OF YOUR LIFE!” And therefore, go around and look for nine month old bread crumbs. It was just a horrible rendition of the meaning of this festival. It’s so much more powerful! And the ultimate meaning – although the Days of Unleavened Bread have possible eight different meaning’s – the pinnacle is understanding that for SEVEN DAYS we’re commanded to eat unleavened bread. For SEVEN DAYS we’re commanded to avoid leavened bread. For seven days as we eat the unleavened bread, which is the unleavened Bread of sincerity and truth as Paul said, which is represented of Jesus Christ when He says in John 6, “’I AM the living Bread.’” The whole purpose, the whole meaning, of this festival period is to REMIND YOU that you need Jesus Christ in you every day! Now, the interesting thing – if you eat something, or drink something, the molecules in whatever you ate eventually – most of them – become a permanent part of you. And that’s what the Days of Unleavened Bread mean. As you eat the unleavened bread, you are to think – I need Jesus Christ within me! I need the Spirit of God within me! I need the Word’s and the truth of Jesus Christ within me! I need the thought’s of Jesus Christ within me! To become a permanent part of me! And so that’s the general thesis of what we’ve been talking about.

Spiritual Meaning’s to the Ten Commandments

And last time we were on Romans 7:1 – “Or do you not know, [Church people] (for I speak to those who know the Law), …” – he wasn’t just talking about everybody here, he’s talking about people who understand the Ten Commandments, and are trying the learn the principles of the New Covenant. “…that the Law has dominion over a man as long as he lives?” – and from that we went back to Exodus 20, and we did a thumb nail sketch of the Ten Commandments. Now, last time, all we covered was - basically what I like to call – the physical meaning of the Ten Commandments. I think there are an equal and powerful secondary meaning of the Ten Commandments - which I call the spiritual meaning’s of the Ten Commandments.
1) And, quickly turn back to Exodus 20 again. Last time, all we were talking about was the physical implications. But there are powerful spiritual meaning’s to these commandments. Remember, verse 3, we have the first commandment, ‘You shall have no other gods before Me.’ So, that’s pretty self-explanatory. And if you have the wrong god, or if you have the wrong religion. Think about that. You may think you’re worshiping the true God. People who talk about Muhammad, and Allah, they think they’re talking about the true God. However, I would have a difficult time understanding that within those precepts advocate the killing of people who do not agree with them. You know, murder. Obviously, it goes against the commandment, ‘You shall do no murder.’ And yet, there are religious groups and people who think it’s their right and their duty to kill people. Now, it doesn’t just mean not to have a statue of Buddha, and think that somehow, you’re talking to God – but it also means, don’t have a false religion. Or, don’t believe in false doctrines. If you are not following the doctrine of the Bible, and I mean the true doctrine – not what your Sunday school teacher told you. Not what your minister, or your rabbi, your priest, or whoever else it was. I’m talking about what the Bible really says.

And, another thing I’ve talked about – the churches of the world, so-called Christianity, go gaga over the concept they call Christ-mas. Which, if I were to have that discussion with Wyndel I would say, “Wyndel, you are a Baptist, why are you keeping Catholic traditions!?” Christ-mass. I mean, right in the word, it tells you where this came from! This didn’t come from the Bible! This came from Catholic traditions. So, “Why are you propagating a Catholic doctrine!?” I understand why Catholic’s keep Christmas. It’s one of their holy days. What I don’t understand is why Baptists, and Methodists, and Pentecostals, and Presbyterians, and so on and so forth!? I don’t know why they keep it!

Another one I’ve talked about – Easter. Easter is simply a more modern version of a celebration of an ancient sex goddess from Babylon and from ancient Egypt, also from the Greek empire, the Roman empire of Ishtar. (Be sure to read Prophecy Series – End-Time Babylon, to learn more about this ancient festival to false gods). Ishtar. Now the modern-way they say it is Easter. It’s a sex goddess. It’s a celebration of the Spring time, with bunny rabbits and Easter eggs and all of that folderol. It has NOTHING to do with Jesus Christ! N O T H I N G! And yet, every year, the second most attended church service in the world of Christianity is Easter. And that follows Christmas Eve. So, Ishtar is a pagan tradition, which people tried to paint-up and connect it with Jesus. If you want to celebrate what Jesus did, you will keep the Passover/Lord’s Supper, and you will keep the Days of Unleavened Bread. Jesus Christ was not resurrected on a Sunday morning. When the people showed up Sunday morning, He was already risen – it was past-tense – it was over. He was resurrected on what we would call a late Saturday afternoon.

And yet, what does the churches of the world teach!? They teach that He died on a Friday and He was resurrected on a Sunday morning. And yet, Jesus Christ said, ‘The only sign I’m gonna give you is the sign of Jonah. Who was in the belly of the great fish (sea creature, whatever that thing was) for three-days and three-nights.’ And if you go Friday afternoon to Sunday morning you cannot get three-days and three-nights. So the one thing Jesus Christ said, ‘this is My ultimate sign – I will be in the earth (My tomb, My grave) for three-days and three-nights.’ Jesus was crucified on WEDNESDAY, the middle day of the week. He died shortly after 3 p.m. that afternoon, was buried before sunset Wednesday evening. His body was Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights in the grave – three nights. It also was there through the daylight part of Thursday, Friday and Saturday – three days. He rose Saturday – the Sabbath – late afternoon, shortly before sunset, at the same time of the day that He was buried! So, think about that – the traditions of modern Christianity do not comport and comply and agree with the Words of the Bible! And this is just what I am saying – I’m a Biblican. Human traditions are not important to me. I know that they’re important to other people and I try and show a certain amount of sensitivity, just so I’m not a oaf in front of them. But, the traditions of modern Christianity do not reflect the truth of God! Remember early on I said we are all about the Truth of God, the Word of God, and explaining the Plan of God! So, ‘no other gods before Me’ also means no false gods or false religious leaders and false doctrine.

2) Verse 4 – “’You shall not make for yourself [any graven image] …’” – there are people who make a god out of their car, or their truck. I use to have a neighbor, he moved. And he had himself a fancy truck. And I’m going to try and be tactful when I say this. I think he caressed his truck with more love and more care than he probably did his own wife. I mean he caressed that truck. Two or three times a week. And he was just completely absorbed by the appearance of his truck. I know people who will follow their career – they will not follow God Almighty and Jesus Christ, because if they start keeping the Sabbath and the holy days, they can’t keep their job and they won’t advance. So they decide that the job, the career, the money, is more important than God. I know people, even within the umbrella of the churches of God, who will pursue the idea – I’ll play the game, the corporate game, I will try to bow down and kiss the rear-ends (I’m being polite here) of church leader’s so that I might maybe someday become an ordained minister. I know people like that. And in doing so, I think they have turned their back on Jesus Christ. Because in pursuing this lust and this covetousness by “being a minister” they have done some horrible thing’s - at the height of disloyalty!

3) Verse 7 – “’You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain, …’” – and I think I mentioned a bit of this in the last sermon. You shouldn’t profane the name of Jesus Christ and God Almighty in your speech. But acting like you’re a Christian, when you’re not is also ‘taking the name of the LORD your God in worthlessness.’ And so there are people and there are church groups who say their Christian. But if you examine them in the light of the Word of God, they are not Christian. They are just following human traditions.

4) Verse 8 – “’Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.’” – well the Sabbath day actually means more than just “Church day.” The Sabbath day was the final day of the re-creation of the earth. Every Sabbath day, you should think about your Creator. And the fact that this wonderful world was indeed created for you. I love walking through my orchard on a Saturday morning, or Saturday evening afternoon. Because I get to see all these beautiful plants, get to see them grow, and it reminds me that there’s a great God that made all of this! And it just brings me closer to God!

But there are people who go to church on Sunday, and they don’t even think about creation, it’s a very cheap counterfeit. The Sabbath day also looks forward to the Kingdom of God being established on the earth. Now, the churches of the world don’t talk about this. What do they talk about!? Well, they think about when they die, they’ll fly off to Heaven, or plunge into Hell. I remember (and I’m not making fun of him) Billy Graham, famous evangelist, and he would love to hold that Bible – I think he had Velcro strips underneath so that he could wave the Bible wildly - and say, “And I’m goin’ to Heaven!” I saw him on Larry King Live one night. And here he’s talking to Larry King, who’s Jewish – to my knowledge doesn’t even believe in Jesus Christ. And he said, “I’s goin’ to Heaven!” And then he looked at Larry King and said, “Larry, you’re goin’ to Heaven!” And Larry King was a little befuddled by all that. Well, as a practicing Jew I presume that Larry King has no interest in following Jesus Christ. Which means if he rejects Jesus Christ, he is not doing the will of God. But anyway, Billy loved to say that! And there are millions of people who probably remember that and believe the same thing. And there’s another group of people who say, ‘Well if you’re bad (whatever bad is) when you die, down into the fiery bowels of the earth to suffer for all eternity.’ Which begs the question – if you’re no longer a mortal body, but you’re a “spirit” (as they would say) – an immortal spirit – how can fire hurt you!? For fire to hurt you, you must be flesh and blood. Now, many years ago out in Arizona, there was a basketball team right before their tournament. A bunch of the guys went out into the desert, made a big bon-fire. Well, guess what - they were drinking - and the star basketball player decided he was going to show off what a great athlete he was, and they started jumping through the fire. Well you know what happened. One time he leapt and did not calculate accurately, and he landed in the fire. Well, he wasn’t worth much to the team, because he had second and third-degree burns on his butt, back, and his legs. He found out – fire hurts. However, if you’re an immortal spirit (which is what they say) fire doesn’t hurt you. You could have a bon fire in your yard, and an angel could walk right through it. Doesn’t affect him. So, what all this talk about going down into the bowels of earth and suffering!? Being cooked – like you’re on a barbecue or something for all eternity!? No, they believe that’s what their ultimate end is.

But the Sabbath day also reminds us that there’s a new day coming, and it’s just around the bend! That’s a song from way back! The World Tomorrow, the Kingdom of God is coming to this earth! The churches of this world mainly do not teach that. The closest they come is sort of – they call it the rapture. Somehow you magically get sucked up into the air and Jesus does a little fly-by grabs all of you and takes you back to Heaven. That’s what they teach. But that’s not what the Bible says! ‘Blessed are the meek …’ – the Word’s of Jesus Christ! ‘…for they shall inherit [Heaven]?’ No, that’s not what He said. “’Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth.’” The Kingdom of God will be established upon the earth! That’s the ultimate meaning of the Sabbath day! But that’s not taught in the churches of the world.

5) Verse 12 – “’Honor your father and your mother, …’” – last sermon we talked about the physical meaning of this. The temporal meaning – that one is to honor your birth mother and your birth father. But there’s another meaning to that. Honor your Heavenly Father. Honor your Heavenly Big Brother. Honor the organization - your Mother. Which is feeding you and nourishing you. That’s the true spiritual meaning of that commandment.

6) Verse 13 – “’You shall not murder.’” – well, that also means – ‘do not teach false doctrine which will lead (eventually) to somebody’s eternal death.’ So for the preacher’s of the world who do not teach the truth of God, you ARE ‘murdering’ your parishioners! - preacher’s, priest’s, rabbi’s, imam’s – whoever you are!

7) Verse 14 – “’You shall not commit adultery.’” – last week we were talking about how in a physical sense – you stray from your marriage you can cause so many problem’s, so much heartache, so much pain, so much financial loss, so unnecessary. But there’s another meaning to this. If you go back and do a study some time – it may take you quite a while – get out a concordance and look up all of the word’s such as (and for you who are sensitive, I apologize early, but all of these are biblical terms) adultery, fornication, fornications – all of those types of words. You will find out that in the vast majority God is not talking about physical adultery within the confines of a marriage – on a physical level. He’s talking about – if you go after a false god, you have committed adultery against Him! Or, fornication with Him! Or, you have gone A-whoring (that’s another word in the Bible). You have gone a-whoring after false gods! If you don’t follow the true religion of God, you are breaking that commandment on a spiritual plane!

8) Verse 15 – “’You shall not steal.’” – well, if you teach and preach and propagate – you don’t have to be a preacher to teach false doctrine. If you’re a mother, and you teach your children about the Tooth-Fairy, or you teach your children about Santa Claus or the Easter rabbit, or Halloween, all of that folderol that is associated with the churches of the world – if you teach that, you are STEALING from your child and your grandchild the truth of God! If you talk to your friend’s about, “Well, when I go off to Heaven, or poor Suzy she died, but she’s up in Heaven.” I remember a few year’s ago we had a member here and her granddaughter died at a very early age, and she described to me how ever so often they’d have a party of the friend’s and family members. And one time they had all these balloons and they wrote little message’s – “O’ we miss you!” “O’ we love you!” – and after at the right time, they let all these balloons go. And the idea was, well these balloons are going to float up to Heaven. And our dear friend or relative whose passed away will get to read them. Now folks, that shows a woeful lack of understanding! Oh I know they’re trying to do it to reach their emotional pain. I understand that, but that’s not the way to do it! If you want to understand, go to the Bible and find out that your dear loved one is going to live again on the earth and have a whole new chance at life! That’s what the Bible says! That’s what is contained in the truth of the Last Great Day. But see people don’t teach that! No, they steal, and rob, the truth of God!

9) Verse 16 – “’You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.’” – we talked about that on a physical plane. Accusing somebody of a crime when they didn’t do it. Well, there’s a whole lot of people in the ICG, and probably all of the other so-called churches of God under the remnants of the WCG – which have committed crimes. Spiritual crimes against people, because once they found out that that person wasn’t in total agreement with THEM, the leadership – and the normal membership picks it up – they go out and trash the poor soul who has become the object of their hate. I know about that! And folks, that is bearing false witness against your neighbor. And I talked last time about rumors – gossip. Unsubstantiated rumors which become the very core of gossip is bearing false witness against your neighbor. But, let’s take it to a more spiritual plane. If you tell your neighbor falsehoods about God, about the truth of God, about the Word of God, about the Plan of God. If you teach your child or children that when you die you go to Heaven, you are bearing false witness! And you’re hurting the person that believes you. So, if you communicate false doctrine. I don’t care how good your intentions are. You may have the most wonderful attitude and hopefulness that what you’re saying is true – but if it does not comport with the Word of God it is FALSE! And to share that is to bear false witness! And, don’t some of the groups even call themselves witnesses!? I’ve had them knock on my door before. I had this group one time – two women out on the front porch and my mother. She was starting to decline, but she was a wonderful conversationalist and knew how to conduct a conversation, even as she was not her old self. These two women were on the front porch trying to talk my Mom into coming to their church that has the word witnesses in it. I came home from the shop, walked up on the porch and my Mom said, “Well, you need to talk to my son, Michael. He knows a whole lot more about religion than I do.” Which actually shocked me. And these two women started in on me, “Well, we’d love for you to come and visit our church. Blah, blah, blah.” And I think – from God – I had a thought. I said, “Well, I’ll tell ya what. Why don’t you two come to my church and hear what we have to say!?” Well I’ll tell ya what – they were off that front porch in about five second’s! It was like insecticide, and they were gone! I wish I had known this year’s before! If you want to get rid of those people just say, “I’m not interested in your church. But hey, come and visit my church!”

10) Verse 17 – “’You shall not covet …’” – we had talked last time about how the Apostle Paul said in Colossians 3:5 and in Ephesians 5:5 – ‘that covetousness of physical thing’s is a form of spiritual idolatry and is a sin, and unrepented of is worthy of death.’ And so yes, the Ten Commandments have a more practical everyday physical meaning, but the Ten Commandments have a powerful secondary spiritual meaning. And almost no one ever talks about the spiritual meanings of those.

So, going back to Romans 7:4 – “Therefore, my [brothers and sisters in Christ], you also have become dead to the law …” – now, what does he mean!? Does he mean that you no longer have to keep the Ten Commandments!? No, because look at verse 12 again – “Therefore the Law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good.” And he’s referring to the Ten Commandments. So, what’s he referring to over here, in verse 4!? “…you also have become dead to the law through the Body of Christ, …” Well …

1) You are dead to the Old Covenant. You’re dead to the principles obtained in the Old Testament/Old Covenant.

2) You’re also dead to the death penalty, because Jesus Christ will save you. Jesus Christ will give you eternal life. Notice Romans 6:23 – “For the wages of sin is death, …”

But if you are a follower of Jesus Christ and a practitioner of the principles of the New Covenant, you are “…dead to the [death penalty] through the Body of Christ, that you may be married to another – to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God.” – so ultimately, who are we married to!? We’re married to Jesus Christ through the Church, the Body of Christ. Verse 5 – “For when we were in the flesh, [meaning unconverted, meaning devoid of the Spirit of God, meaning we did not have Christ in us], the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.” When we were unconverted, we were on a glide path to eternal death. However, if you have had the experience of conversion – if you’ve had the experience of baptism and the laying on of hands and receiving the gift of God’s Spirit – if your name is written in the Book of Life – you are now on the glide path to eternal life. Not to death. Verse 6 – “But now we have been delivered from the law, …” – he’s not talking about the Ten Commandments, he’s talking about the law of death, talking about the law of the Old Covenant.

Keep in mind, the Old Covenant – and all of you out there who want to talk about… and it goes by different name’s… I’ve heard the term Messianic Judaism. They’re really Jews, but they try and throw in a little sprinkle of Jesus Christ. I know that there are people who go by the Hebrew Roots Movement, meaning, going back to their Old Testament roots. And this is very prevalent in the churches of God! Now, it’s not everyone, but there’s a powerful stream of this thought in the churches of God – the remnants of the WCG! And I think it’s because what the minister’s have taught for so many years is so dull and so boring, and so irrelevant, that people are looking for something new. And all of a sudden, they latch onto this idea of going back to their Jewish roots. Well, that Old Covenant law gave no promise of eternal life. So, you’re following a system which is a GURANTEE that you never find eternal life! If you want eternal life, dive into the principles of the New Covenant. And for those of you who have a history in Worldwide, you never heard that back then! The WCG didn’t teach the New Covenant! It did not teach newness of life. It did not teach Christ In You. They were simply obsessed with Old Testament stories and they would go on and on about remote little incident’s that happened thousand’s of years ago and try to make it relevant for today. And quite frankly, it’s not. I mean, most of us go, “Huh!? What does that have to do with me!?” But the New Covenant is your pathway to eternal life! “…having died to what we were held by, [the Old Covenant, the old man, the unconverted self] so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit …” – that’s talking about JESUS CHRIST BEING IN YOU! Christ In You! That’s talking about the New Covenant! “…and not in the oldness of the letter.” – of the Old Covenant law. Verse 7 – “What shall we say then? Is the Law sin? Certainly not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin except through the Law.” – So the principles of the Bible teach you what is right and what is wrong. “…For I would not have known covetousness unless the Law had said, ‘You shall not covet.’ 8) But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire. For apart from the Law sin was dead.” – so, if you were a little baby and washed ashore on a deserted island, and you grew up on the island, and you never were taught. You really don’t know what’s right and what’s wrong – except what you think you should do. Verse 9 – “I was alive once without the Law, but when the commandment came, …” – ‘when I became aware of God’s will,’ is what he’s saying. “…sin revived …” – ‘I became aware of my thought’s and my action’s being sinful. And in that, I was in the process of dying.’

I talked last sermon, I think, about the young boy, around ten-years old, who had stolen a ten-dollar bill from another student in my classroom many years ago. And when we finally found the ten-dollar bill falling out of his pocket, he was offended that he was even being looked at, because - it wasn’t his fault, he hadn’t done anything wrong. The girl – in his own mind – was stupid for letting him steal it so easily! He was not even aware of right and wrong!? It wasn’t a part of his consciousness. Well, someday, when he starts to learn about the Truth of God he will understand ‘what I did there when I was a young boy was very wrong. And had I continued on that path I surely would have died.’ Verse 10 – “And the commandment, which was [ordained to] life, I found to bring death.” – the Ten Commandments is a pathway to eternal life – if you walk the pathway. However if you don’t walk the pathway it’s a walkway to death – eternal death. Verse 11 – “For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me.” – He’s saying, ‘I was not of God and the thing’s I did was wrong, and I was walking the pathway to death.’ Verse 12 – “Therefore the Law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good. 13) Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful.” – what Paul is saying is, ‘because of the commandment I learned how ungodly I truly was. The commandment taught me how far off-base I was.’ Verse 14 – “For we know that the Law is spiritual, …” – and it is. It’s from God, it’s a refection of the mind and the personality of God. “…but I am carnal, …” – just means flesh and blood, normal human. “…sold under sin.” – what he’s saying, ‘if you’re flesh and blood and you’re not converted you don’t have a chance to make it into the Kingdom of God. You don’t have a chance.’ Because as we’re told in other parts of Romans, ‘the human mind is enmity against God.’ Verse 6, chapter 8 – “For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” Verse 7 – “Because the carnal mind [the natural human mind devoid of God’s Spirit and God’s Truth] is enmity [complete rejection against God] …” – and yet, people who dress up on Sunday morning in their Sunday morning finest, they don’t even know that they are walking in a rebellious path. By the fact that they go to church on Sunday and think that’s the Sabbath, they show, they demonstrate, by their physical presence that they are rebellious towards God. They don’t know that! I know they don’t understand that! Because they aren’t being called, aren’t being converted, they’re not walking down that pathway to Truth and eventually eternal life. Verse 15; KJV – “For that which I [want to] do, I allow not [I don’t do it]; for what I would [what I want to do], that I do not; but what I hate, that do I.” – isn’t that funny!? You know, when we’re being physical – somebody puts something in front of us that isn’t healthy for us. We might just go ahead and drink it, or smoke it, or eat it. And in doing so, we’re doing that which we don’t want to do. Now, you could take just an average young boy, and have him at your dinner table on a special occasion like a birthday or something, and that young boy would probably be perfectly polite, and say the right thing’s and do the right thing’s. But you take that same young teenage boy, put him in a group of quite a few boys – well, that angelic nature changes to a very devilish nature. And that nice young boy can participate in actions which are just wrong! You might have a young lad who wouldn’t think of drinking a beer by himself. But you get a group of four or five young boy’s together, all of a sudden somebody shows up with a twelve-pack, and they’re gonna drink that beer until it’s gone. Or, smoke the cigarette’s, or smoke the marijuana, or participate in unclean stories about sex and their exploits (which are mainly a bunch of lies, they’re just making it up). And I know that’s disturbing, especially for you who might be parent’s or grandparent’s of young boy’s. By themselves, they behave themselves. If they get away from the nest and join a bunch of other adolescent boys, anything is capable of happening. And don’t just kid yourself – I know growing up young girl’s tended not to be that way, but anymore young girl’s are more and more trying to outdo the boy’s on how raunchy or evil or mean they can be. So, it goes back to, ‘what I normally would do, I don’t do. And what I normally would not do, you get me in the wrong environment I just might do it.’ Verse 16 – “If, then, I do what I will not to do, …” – meaning you break your principles. “…I agree with the Law that it is good. 17) But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin [or the sinful nature or the sinful proclivities] that dwell in me.” – ‘being that I don’t have God’s Spirit.’ Verse 18 – guess what Paul concluded!? after looking back on his life and looking at his life even then – “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) [in my desire] nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, …” – yeah, if I’m eating fried chicken with the family, I’ll behave myself. But you get me in a car with four or five other teenagers, and who knows what I might do. “…but how to perform what is good I do not find. 19) For the good that [I would want] to do, I do not do; but the evil [which I normally would not do], that I practice. 20) Now if I do what I will not to do [‘if I do the thing’s I know I shouldn’t’], it is no longer I who do it, but sin [the sinful nature, the sinful proclivities, the sinful weaknesses] that dwells in me.” Because we’re flesh and blood, and apart from God – without Jesus Christ being in us – we are enmity with God and God’s way’s.

Verse 21 – “I find then a law, …” – now here, he’s not talking about the law of the Old Covenant. He’s not talking about the New Covenant – or the Ten Commandments. Here he’s talking about the word principle. ‘There is a principle, that I, when I would want to do good, “…evil is present with me, …” Verse 22 – “For I delight in the Law of God according to the inward man.” – that part of him where Jesus Christ resided, he said, “I delight in the Law of God.” Verse 23 – “But I see another [principle] in my members, warring against the [principle] of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin [the principle, the concept of sin] which is in my members. 24) O wretched man that I am! …” – this is the Apostle Paul, who wrote the majority of the New Testament. Who is probably as close to Jesus Christ as any human ever was, and he says, “O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of [this] death? [this carnalness that is within me] …” – ‘this principle of sinfulness that so easily beset me?’ And you know something – thankfully Paul did not tell us what he was wrestling with. There were issues in Paul’s life. And thankfully he didn’t write them down, because I wouldn’t want to think about that every time I read the words of Paul. And here’s what we can take from it – all of us, whether we are just beginning to learn the Truth of God, or whether we’ve been in the Church of God for fifty years, all of us have issues. All of us have areas of our life that need to be cleaned up or tuned up, or tidied up – however you wanna say it. And that’s just something for all of us to think about. Remember the night of the Passover, we read the phrase, ‘let a man examine himself. whether he be in the faith.’ Well, that’s something that should be an ongoing examination. We need to examine who we are. But understand, even the Apostle Paul could say, “O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from the body of [this] death?” – question mark. And then he gives the answer in verse 25 – “I thank God – [that by Jesus Christ our Lord, I will be delivered from the body of this death!]” – so again, what’s the answer!? Jesus Christ and Christ being in you! Which is the ultimate meaning of the Days of Unleavened Bread! “I thank God – through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I myself serve the Law of God, …” – ‘but sometimes the pull of my carnal nature, the pull of my being human, I reflect “…the law of sin.” And that’s the battle which all of us face and we struggle with. And so, if a fellow church member has a flaw, don’t get so snooty that you think – that will never happen to me. Because we all have issues! All- everyone! ‘All have fallen short of the glory of God.’ But through Jesus Christ we can individually and collectively – as the Body of Christ – grow forward towards learning and understanding the Truth of God and living the Way Jesus Christ would want us to. And, then, Romans 8, we’ve already gone over.

2nd Corinthians 3 – this is a powerful statement! And the churches and the religious people of this world seemingly don’t know it. It’s right there in their Bible! And I dare say many people from the tradition of the WCG don’t know it either. Yet it’s right out there for you! 2nd Corinthians 3:17 – it says in black and white in my Bible underlined in red, and highlighted in yellow! “Now the Lord is [that] Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” The Lord is that Spirit. So, how many times have you gone to your neighborhood church, or turned on your television to watch some religious service, and they go on and on about the word – the Trinity. Which is so ironic – I live in the Trinity Hills subdivision. I live off Trinity Boulevard. And right behind me I share about a 100 yd. fence line with the Trinity United Methodist Church. The word Trinity is festooned all over my neighborhood! And the churches of the world teach the Trinity. There’s even a television broadcasting company TBN – the Trinity Broadcasting Network. And there are people who believe that if you do not believe in the Trinity you are not of God! And the churches of the world teach the Trinity as being the absolute truth of God! And, just for your education – let’s go back to 1st John. The “proof” text which poorly educated religious people use is in 1st John 5. Notice verse 6 – “This is He who came by water and blood – Jesus Christ; …” – alright, ‘the water’ meaning what!? He was baptized by John the Baptist, and He was murdered, He was tortured to death where He bled profusely. “…not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth.” – now, again, what did we read in 2nd Corinthians 3:17!? ‘The Lord – Jesus Christ – is that Spirit.’ That’s why Jesus Christ can live in us! Because a part of His mind is with us. Even though He is presently located in the third Heaven next to the throne of God the Father, He can share His mind with us and therefore we have the mind of Jesus Christ, meaning we have the Spirit of Jesus Christ within us. We have Christ In Us! Now, the next sentence – any reputable Bible or Bible help will plainly tell you that verse 7 does not appear in the original Greek manuscripts. Verse 7 was added. In 1611 A.D. – I’m using a King James English Bible – by the people who had been assigned the job of translating it, who were Catholic priest’s and dignitaries, and they basically were told, “You put this in, or we’ll chop your head off!” “You insert that which is not true!” Remember we read, “You shall not bear false witness”? Well, they did! And for many, many hundreds of years people have used verse 7. And yet, any authority on the Bible in many translation’s will plainly tell you, verse 7 was not, should not be a part of the Bible! And here’s what it says, “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word [the Logos, which means Jesus Christ], and the Holy Ghost [or some people say Holy Spirit], and these three are one.” And that’s the verse they use to say, “See, the Trinity is correct! The Trinity is real!” Well that verse shouldn’t be in the Bible! And in most modern translation’s it plainly isn’t.

So, what are we to think about all of this!? The Trinity is a lie. It is a lie put forth by Satan, and sucked up – as it were – by the religions of the world, to the point where some people will want to fight you if you were to say – the Trinity is not a biblical doctrine. The Lord is the Spirit. So, what is to be said about the nature of God!? GOD, or Elohim (remember back in the Book of Genesis, ‘Let Us [plural] make man in Our [plural] image.’ The Family of GOD right now is composed of two Beings or two personalities. We now call the One – God the Father. And we now call the other One – Jesus Christ. Sometimes He’s referred to as the Logos or the Word. Those are the only two members of the Family of GOD right now! The doctrine of the Trinity says, ‘that the godhead – the central core of the Family of GOD – is Jesus Christ, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit.’ However, they also go on to teach that there NEVER will be another being that becomes a part of this godhead. Now, if that is true, you would be denied many of the benefits of being an eternal resurrected being. Because you wouldn’t truly be a son or a daughter, a member of the Family. You would just sort of – alright, you’d be an outcast from the Family of God, but I guess you have eternal life. Well, here’s THE TRUTH – what God is offering to us is full membership in the Family of GOD. Now, we will never take over God the Father’s role. We will never take over or challenge the role of Jesus Christ. Go back to the Book of Romans 8:8 – “…those who are in the flesh [meaning they’re not converted] cannot please God.” I don’t care if you live a so-called “perfect” life, you’re not of God, and He truly doesn’t recognize you. But in verse 9 – “But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit [or of the Spirit, of the mind of Christ] if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you [or the Spirit of Christ]. Now if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he is not His. 10) And if Christ is in you, the body is dead [the human body will die] because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11) But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies [someday] through His Spirit [that] dwells in you.” Verse 14 – “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God [the mind of Jesus], these are sons [and daughters] of God. 15) For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, …” – you’re not gonna be a slave. “…but you have received the Spirit of [son ship, daughtership – full membership] …” – upon our resurrection, we don’t become a secondary – we’re not like the family dog. You know the family dog is sort of like the member of the family, but he’s a dog, he’s a canine, and we’re human – or a slave, not a dog, we’re not the cow back in the pasture, we’re not some critter, we are a full fledged member of the Family of GOD! “…by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’ Verse 16 – “The Spirit [itself] bears witness with our spirit that we are the children of God, …” – the son’s and daughter’s of God. Verse 17 – “and if children, then heirs [heirs of the whole universe] – heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him [in the present], that we may also be glorified together. 18) For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us [and to us].” God is not a Trinity At the present time GOD – Elohim – is a two being family. And they are waiting for more children. Son’s and daughter’s by the hundreds, and the thousands, and eventually the millions, and the billions, and the trillions, and everything beyond that! The Family of GOD is going to grow forever! It’s literally going to take over the universe as we go down through time. And you – if you’re reading these words, and these words make sense, and there’s something about what I’m saying that seems logical or truth, because you’re seeing it from the Bible. I’m not just making this up, I’m reading to you from the Bible. If something in this makes you believe, that this might be true – you have a chance to be a part of this great blessing! God indeed - if He has not already called you – may be in the process of calling you into the TRUTH OF GOD! Please do not resist what God is trying to do to you! God doesn’t yell at you, He doesn’t scream, He doesn’t shout. It’s the small, still, voice of God. And yet if these words make sense, God is talking to you! And in a sense, He’s using this article to sort of relay the Message – but He’s talking to you. And if what you read from the Bible makes sense, He’s talking to you! He’s trying to get you to make a change – He’s trying to get you to change from carnal flesh and blood and change you into eternal spirit. It’s a process – it doesn’t happen all at once. But you have a chance to grab ahold of that and to become an eternal member of the Family of GOD! I hope that you do not allow this to pass you! I hope you understand what I’m saying! I hope – if you’re a member of another branch, descendant, remnant, of the WCG, and yet, you’re listening to us sort of on the sly, and if what I am saying sounds proper to you, no one says you have to remain a member of that other group, you can come over and join forces with us! We are going to teach the TRUTH OF GOD! We are going to teach the WORD OF GOD! We are going to explain and expound the PLAN OF GOD! We are here to feed the sheep of Jesus Christ! And we would love for you to come and join us. We truly do.

So, we’re going to come to an end now. Next time, for the seventh-day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, we’re going to talk about another aspect of the Days of Unleavened Bread. But this has been a powerful series. This is as important as anything you could ever hear! I just hope that anything I said doesn’t keep you from hearing the truth of the Bible. So, our prayers are with all of you, and our love extends to all of you. We hope and pray that your prayers go up to Heaven on our behalf, and that your love extends to all of us. We’re small, but we do have a presence, and for some people we are making a difference and we appreciate that. We appreciate the opportunity to serve Jesus Christ. So, be sure to come back. And, read the other sermon’s in the past, we have a great many on our blog page. Again, we have our website – We have our YouTube channels (Owensboro Church of Jesus Christ; the Trevor Koonce channel; the Leonard Johnson channel). We have our Facebook pages (Owensboro Church of Jesus Christ; Owensboro Church of Jesus Christ/ Michael C Garrett Minister; owensboroCOJC). And now, we have our Godtube channel – o’borochurchofjesuschrist.

Like I was saying earlier, a man from Syria. Think about that. That war torn ravaged savaged land of death and destruction and misery. And yet, there’s one fellow there that apparently is hearing these sermons and reading these articles and is benefiting from them. All I can say to you fellow, hang in there! Be safe. Protect yourself. But look to Jesus, because He is your individual salvation, and He is going to be someday the salvation of your war torn land! Jesus will return! He will end that carnage, He will bring peace and harmony to that part of the world. And we hope that you will be there with Him as a member of His Family. So again, until next time, our love goes out to you. And I say to you, goodbye my friends.
