Twenty-One Signs of Doomsday (Update LI--How the Whole Thing Works, Part 1)

The mother of all wars of all time began in the Garden of Eden and it ends at Armageddon. The weapons of this warfare remain the same. The confrontation began in the Garden of Eden and the challenge was between Godís Word and faith and Satanís word and unbelief. It was a matter of whose words humanity would follow, and the issue is still the same todayóno changes.

Twenty-One Signs of Doomsday (Update LI--How the Whole Thing Works, Part 1)

Article#: 1846

Every day for over 50 years, I have arisen with a grateful heart.  God has redeemed me from myself.  He redeemed me and delivered me from the hurtful lusts, the bondages, by which I had been bound.  This truly supernatural feat was not a product of my great moral stamina, for I had none.  This great supernatural feat was not a product of my great spiritual discipline and will power, for I had neither.  My salvation was a demonstration of the beautiful grace of God alone.

I entered the house of God that night deep, deep in blinding sin, but came out a new creature in Christ Jesus.  I saw the Light!  I was BORN-AGAIN—born a second time, this time of the Spirit of God.  Everything changed in a moment.  I was saved from my old, carnal man and that old man was nailed to a cross.  Every day since, I have been empowered to overcome the devil and his temptations by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony. Such magnificence is given to all the children of God if they say so, and I’m saying so. 

I am free!  I am free to believe the truth in the face of constant contradiction!  And imagine, today is the best day of my life and tomorrow will be better.  Romans 8:28:

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.   

Proverbs 4:18:

But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

Let faith abound and everything will be beautiful, especially the ugly.  All things are working together for my good, and my path grows brighter every day unto the perfect day when we see Christ Jesus face-to-face.  It’s true, by commandment, today is the best day of my life and tomorrow will be better.  This promise belongs to all God’s children, but they have to say so—and I’m saying so. 

Have you yet to be BORN-AGAIN?  Will today be the best day of your life?  Will today be the day all your sin and shame are washed away?  Will today be the day all of Satan’s bondages are broken, no matter how daunting they appear?  Today, your eternal soul is in your own hand. In just a moment, I will invite you to follow me in a simple prompt where everything will change for you in a most spectacular way.  Today, you will even be freed of yourself and the hurtful lusts that have you bound.  Here comes the prompt: Click onto “Further with Jesus”  for childlike instructions and immediate entry into the Kingdom of God. NOW FOR TODAY’S SUBJECT.

GOD SAID, Psalm 33:6:

By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

GOD SAID, Proverbs 3:19:

The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

GOD SAID, Daniel 9:18:

O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.

MAN SAID: Evolution is our creator, not the Christian God—but right now, evolution needs our help.  After we fix the climate, we’ll take on all of the developing social issues.  It’s true that we don’t know whether we are boys or girls, but we’ll straighten out that bathroom issue!  All of the wisdom of the world is at our fingertips—just ask your phone!

Now THE RECORD: Welcome to GodSaidManSaid feature 1044.  All of these powerful features are archived here in text and streaming audio for your edification and as information with which to engage the lost.  Every Thursday eve, God willing, they grow by one.  Thank you for coming.  May God’s face shine upon you with Light and Truth.

This is how the whole thing works.  The Scriptures, as it pertains to us, give us the entire lay of the land and explains just how everything works—and it’s just so childlike simple.  Matthew 18:2-3:

2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

This short series will deal with how everything works, and it will be childlike simple. We should take heed to the cautions in II Corinthians 11:3:

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

The mother of all wars of all time began in the Garden of Eden and it ends at Armageddon. The weapons of our warfare remain the same.  The confrontation began in the Garden of Eden and the challenge was between God’s Word and faith and Satan’s word and unbelief.  It was a matter of whose words humanity would follow, and the issue is still the same today—no changes. 

Everything we encounter, according to God, is made of words, so it should be no surprise that this world-ending war is a war of words.  Several foundational excerpts follow from the GodSaidManSaid feature, “The Seven Greatest Mysteries for a Man to Know (Part 3: The Mystery of Words):”

Over the years, GodSaidManSaid has publishednumerousfeatures addressing neuroscience’s latest discoveries concerning physical effects that are the direct result of the intent of WORDS. Several of our features dealt with the very real placebo and nocebo effects, which are measurably physical, and all a result of the intent of WORDS. But there is much more.

If you understand the WORD principle we will lay out today, you will relish the repetition.  If you do not yet understand, your eyes will be opened wide.  Proverbs 18:21 reads “Death and life are in the power of the tongue.”  The truth of that verse is staggering.

Job 34:3:

For the ear trieth words, as the mouth tasteth meat.

Each of us have a physical and a spiritual man.  The physical man eats bread and the spiritual man eats words, good or evil, and we choose the menu. 

Psalm 33:6:

By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

If the Bible is correct in its assertion that everything is a product of WORDS, then we should be able to find proof everywhere—and we do.  WORDS are everything—absolutely everything!  Years ago, while attending one of my son’s baseball games, I had a discussion with a gentleman and the subject of God arose.  The man responded that what I said was “just words,” as though WORDS were nothing.  I asked him if he would like me to prove that everything is made out of God’s WORDS.  He exclaimed, “Go ahead!  Try it!”  The man worked in steel, so it was appropriate that the example I used was the making of an automobile, and about the making of it out of thin air, with WORDS.  The story goes like this: 

Over a hundred years ago, a man was driving down a bumpy, dirt road in his buckboard wagon, which was being pulled along by his horse.  The twenty-mile trip—which would take about 25 minutes today—would take the man most of the day.  As the man rode along, sweaty and fly-bitten, he thought about how great it would be if he could make a horseless carriage.  His thoughts—WORDS—ruminated around in his head all the way home. 

At this point, I asked the gentleman what we had so far, and he said WORDS.  My example continued:

When he got home, our inventor got out a tablet of paper.  With his pencil, he made WORD pictures, and a parts schematic, creating the design of his new “horseless carriage.” 

Again, I asked the gentleman what we had so far, and he rightly answered again, WORDS

Our inventor then got his shovel and dug up a load of iron ore, and other materials.  The iron ore was smelted to steel to make the parts of the horseless carriage.  That iron ore—and the other materials—was spoken into existence out of that which is invisible with WORDS, God’s WORDS

When I finally asked the gentleman what an automobile was made of, the answer was—WORDS.  Everything is made of WORDS, even the digital device on which you are receiving these WORDS

Science was literally shocked when they began to discover DNA and its astounding marvels.  A big—very big—surprise was DNA’s four-letter alphabet.  Using these four letters, DNA delivers its instructions for the construction of all living things in WORDS arranged in sentences, paragraphs, chapters, and volumes of books.  DNA maintains onboard the world’s most sophisticated editing and proofing systems, and it takes a very powerful microscope to even see it.  Everything is made out of WORDS

Your amazing DNA contains enough information to fill nearly 1,000 books of 1,000 pages each—that’s one million pages. This amazing DNA is so small that if you took the DNA of every human on earth, all of it—all of us—would fit in one aspirin tablet.  The staggering beauty of this God-made molecule laughs at evolution and its “big bang” foolishness. DNA functions in words and is made of the same.  Imagine: It can replicate itself in 20-80 minutes, and according to physics and technology professor Werner Gitt, it copies its entire 1,000-book library correctly.

As a result of this global COVID pandemic, the world’s population is being fed mostly bad words twenty-four hours a day.  Tune in for just five minutes a day to get the news you need to deal with, and then tune out! Our bodies are made out of WORDS and the WORDS we feed our spiritual man will surely produce physical results in those bodies. [End of quotes]

The following excerpt from the GodSaidManSaid feature “Amazing Light (Part II)” details what science is just now discovering about matter:

Several weeks ago, GodSaidManSaid reported that scientists in the last couple of decades have concluded that all physical matter is a product of energy. The earth’s energy source is the sun: photons, packages of light.  I John 1:5 declares “that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.”  God is the source of all light, and therefore, all energy. Scientists now theorize that in the next few decades, the energy that creates all matter will be discovered to itself be created by knowledge and understanding.  Note: Energy, the source of physical things, will be discovered to be a product of knowledge and understanding.  Consider Proverbs 3:19:

The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.    

Proverbs 2:6:

For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

God does not do magic.  He literally creates all things with His words of knowledge and understanding.  God is the source of all knowledge and understanding. 

Knowledge and understanding are represented by WORDS.  I am reminded that science has recently transformed WORDS into LIGHT.  Consider Psalm 119:130:

The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

Everything is made out of words—God’s Words.

It is simplistic, so childlike, yet so marvelously astounding.  The physical man—whom the New Testament calls a “vapour,” II Samuel describes “as water spilled on the ground,” and the Psalmist declares “as a tale that is told” (Psalm 90:9)—eats bread, but the spiritual man, who lives forever, eats WORDS.   Satan tempts Christ in Matthew 4:3-4:

3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Words are alive.  The Holy Scriptures are not printer’s ink and paper; they are living words.  Revelation 19:13 speaks of the Christ and reads: “…and His name is called ‘The Word of God.’”

John 1:14:

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Isn’t that wonderful? 

John 6:35 & 48:

35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

48 I am that bread of life.

John 6:51:

I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

John 6:53:

Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.

Jesus Christ was, and is, the walking, living “Word of God” who willingly and lovingly went to the Cross of Calvary, suffered and died, and gave His flesh for the life of the world.  He sacrificed Himself and snapped the stranglehold of Satan for all who will call upon His name.  As we eat of His flesh and drink of His blood, sweet salvation and full freedom from the bondages of sin, death, and hell become ours.

Surely, man cannot live by bread alone.  The spiritual man eats words.

Jesus speaks in Revelation 1:8:

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

It’s been noted that Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, and every letter in between, and every word they form. Remember, everything is made out of words, “…and the word became flesh.” 

John 1:1:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

This is BIG TRUTH, saints—really a mystery of staggering, outerworldly proportion. God is the God of WORDS, living WORDS, information-laden WORDS, creative and life-giving WORDS.  HE IS THE WORD! Now, imagine: Because He is THE WORD, every letter, every phrase, every sentence, and every verse and punctuation mark in your majority-text Holy Bible is a PIECE OF GOD!  Try this example: Think of a very large jigsaw puzzle.  The picture you need to construct will be the very image and likeness of God, including the account of how life began, how man fell, why we need a Redeemer, how to be redeemed, how to live a victorious life, and where we will spend eternity—all of this is within the picture.  Now, think of each piece of the puzzle as a sentence.  Keep firmly in your mind that God is the inerrant, living WORD. Pick any sentence from the box and lay it down on the empty board.  Next, you’ll look for a companion piece of the puzzle—another piece of God—another sentence, and then another after that, and another.  And so the picture begins to form.   

If you’ve spent any time on GodSaidManSaid, you’re aware of our stand for the Authorized King James Version of the Holy Bible.  There are numerous features on this website that define the reasons why.  If you are not using the AKJV, visit the “Which Bible?” series.  There is nothing more important than our copy of the Word of God, and Bible versions are certainly not all the same.  Every sentence is a piece of God. This feature has the power to anchor your feet to the solid Rock.

Everything is made out of words, and changing words changes everything.  We are warned in the Bible not to add to or subtract from the Word of God. 

In Satan’s deception of our grandmother Eve, he added one word and a question mark to bring about the calamities the world deals with to this very day.  In Genesis 3:1, we read:

Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?    

Satan says, “Yea hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”  Remove the word hath and the question mark, and the verse would correctly read: “ Yea God said, ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden.”  Satan changes the words. [End of quotes]

Everything was spoken into existence with words.  Words are central to all life, and even death itself. Yes, the Scriptures are surely true.  Proverbs 18:21:

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

The invisible power and energy of God’s Words create matter.  Stem cell biologist Dr. B.H. Lipton writes in his book, The Biology of Belief:

No, there has not been a printing mistake; atoms are made out of invisible energy, not tangible matter! 

So in our world, material substance (matter) appears out of thin air. Kind of weird, when you think about it.  Here you are holding this physical book in your hands.  Yet if you were to focus on the book’s material substance with an atomic microscope, you would see that you are holding nothing.

Fortunately, leaders in the field, such as Johns Hopkins University physicist Richard Conn Henry, are addressing the misperceptions about the perceived primacy of the material world.  Henry offered an elegantly simple definition on the true nature of the universe, “The universe is immaterial—mental and spiritual.  Live, and enjoy.”  (Henry 2005) [End of quotes]

Gary E. Schwartz, PhD, is a professor of psychology, medicine, neurology, psychiatry, and surgery at the University of Arizona and director of its Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health.  After receiving his doctorate from Harvard University, he served as professor of psychology and psychiatry at Yale University, director of the Yale Psychophysiology Center, and co-director of the Yale Behavioral Medicine Clinic, before moving to Arizona in 1988.  He has published more than four hundred scientific papers and coedited eleven academic books.  Dr. Schwartz quoted famed scientist G.L. Schroeder, PhD in The G.O.D. Experiments:

Changing one’s paradigm is not easy.  Millennia passed before humankind discovered that energy is the basis of matter.  It may take a few more years before we prove that wisdom and knowledge are the basis of—and can actually create—energy, which in turn creates matter. [End of quote]

WORDS! WORDS! WORDS! WORDS! This is how the whole thing works! Psalm 138:1-2:

1 I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the gods will I sing praise unto thee.

2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.

The war against God’s Words of life began in the Garden of Eden and will soon end at Armageddon where Jesus Christ—whose name is “The Word of God” (Revelation 19:13)—splits the sky at His returning to defend Israel and destroy the wicked.  In the beginning, Grandmother Eve believed Satan’s words over her Creator’s Words.  As a result of her unbelief and disobedience, she partook of the forbidden fruit; Adam followed her pernicious ways.  At this place, the law of sin and death began its reign over all of creation.  Unbelief in Words, God’s Words, produces the law of sin and death.

Satan’s modus operandi has not, and will not, change.  If God says “YES!,” the devil shouts “NO!”  The deadly battle being waged today is, as it should be, a matter of words and which words you and I choose to believe.  The very definition of sin is found in Romans 14:23: “…for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.”

Satan and his devils are not atheistic evolutionists.  James 2:19:

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble

Satan is fully aware that God spoke into existence all that you see and even what you don’t see out of that which is invisible.  The devil is fully aware that the confession of the mouth mixed with faith brings about salvation.  Romans 10:9-10:

9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

Satan also knows that the confession of the mouth mixed with unbelief brings about bondage and eventual eternal damnation.  That is his doom and the doom of all those who follow him.  The devil’s focus is changing the words, mixing God’s Words with unbelief to accomplish his deadly three-fold joy.  John 10:10:

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

God’s Words mixed with faith produces life and life more abundantly.  Satan’s words mixed with unbelief produce death and eternal, cognizant damnation. 

James 3:2 speaks of the Godly use of the tongue:

For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.

James 3:6 speaks of the ungodly use of the tongue:

And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.

Everything we encounter is made of words.  For Satan, his beast, and the false prophet to control the world, he needs to control the dialogue.  The devil has been aggressively challenging the Words of God since Eden, and in these very last days, the onslaught has been multiplied.  Persecution.com distributes a Bible cover that carries this statement on it: This book is illegal in 53 countries.  In smaller type, it reads:

🞿 Restricted areas: 40
🞿 Hostile areas: 13

Soon, I predict the Bible will be classified as hate speech in the USA. 

The following news report was published by AFA Journal in their March 2021 issue, but was originally published by WashingtonTimes.com on January 2, 2021:

On January 4, 2021, the U.S. House of Representatives adopted rules disallowing “offensive” words such as he and she, claiming an effort to “honor all gender identities.” 

In addition to striking gender-specific pronouns and terms such as seaman  and chairman, the resolution specifies unacceptable familial relationship terms.  In clause 8(c)3 of rule XXIII, the following terms are rejected: father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew, niece, husband, wife, father-in-law, mother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, stepfather, stepmother, stepson, stepdaughter, stepbrother, stepsister, half-brother, half-sister, grandson, or granddaughter.  Acceptable replacements are: parent, child, sibling, parent’s sibling, sibling’s child, parent-in-law, child-in-law, sibling-in-law, stepparent, stepchild, stepsibling, half-sibling, or grandchild.

Franklin Graham responded to the nonsensical rules: “God ‘created them male and female’ (Genesis 1:27).  This is shaking a fist in the Creator’s face, trying to deny His authority.” [End of quote]

This move against the Word of God finds strong support in a number of church theologians.  There is a reason why judgment begins at the house of God (I Peter 4:17-18).  The following excerpts are from the GodSaidManSaid feature, “The Seven Greatest Mysteries for a Man to Know (Part 3: The Mystery of Words):”

The number-one contender for the Authorized King James Version’s position of correctness is the NIV (New International Version).  Most who are using the NIV have a translation published before 2011 and are fully unaware that things have changed substantially.  Their NIV is no longer being published.  According to Riplinger, the new NIV, which was available online for review November 1, 2010, was scheduled for a printed release of March 2011, but with no name change.  It will still be called the NIV, yet 5% of its contents will have changed. That’s about 76 pages worth of additional changes.  Remember, Satan (Genesis 3) added one word and a question mark and ushered in the law of sin and death.  Some will recall that, in 2005, the TNIV was published, which some have called the “gender-neutral Bible,” but with no sales success.  They have taken the TNIV and merged its content with the pre-2011 NIV.  The following paragraph is from http://www.biblica.com/niv/:

In addition, particular attention was paid to external feedback in the area of gender language.  (See: What was decided about inclusive language, page 4)  As the CBT stated in announcing the planned update, every single gender-related change made from the 1984 NIV to the TNIV was reconsidered.  Some were preserved, some were rescinded in favor of the 1984 rendering, and many were re-worded in a third, still different, way. [End of quote]

Proverbs 24:21:

My son, fear thou the LORD and the king: and meddle not with them that are given to change:

[End of quotes]

Example:

NIV 1973, Revelation 13:16-18:

16 He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead. 

17 so that he could not buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

18 This calls for wisdom. Let he who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.

NIV, 2011, Revelation 13:16-18:

16 It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads,

17 so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.

18  This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.

This move to a “gender-neutral” Bible and “gender-neutral” society is Satan’s promotion of LGBTQ bondage and confusion.  The big question in homes around the world is am I a boy or a girl, and which bathroom should I use? The Word of God describes man’s dilemma in Daniel 9:8:

O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.

Satan changes the words for this is his M.O.—modus operandi.  The devil knows everything is made by God’s Words, so to succeed, he must change them. 

This short series will demonstrate how the whole thing works and it will be so childlike simple.

GOD SAID, Psalm 33:6:

By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.

GOD SAID, Proverbs 3:19:

The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

GOD SAID, Daniel 9:18:

O Lord, to us belongeth confusion of face, to our kings, to our princes, and to our fathers, because we have sinned against thee.

MAN SAID: Evolution is our creator, not the Christian God—but right now, evolution needs our help.  After we fix the climate, we’ll take on all of the developing social issues.  It’s true that we don’t know whether we are boys or girls, but we’ll straighten out that bathroom issue!  All of the wisdom of the world is at our fingertips—just ask your phone!

Now you have THE RECORD.
