Hour of Temptation?

Are we IN it?


From "Thy Kingdom Come" - August 2012 - a publication of the
Association of the Covenant People, Burnaby, B.C. Canada.

SOME OF THE BRITISH ISRAEL GROUPS HAVE SOME OF THE STRANGEST
PROPHETIC IDEAS - HERE'S IS AN EXAMPLE. I WILL COMMENT AS WE GO -

THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION

BY ROBERT B. MACDORMAND

The Bible mentions the hour of temptation that would come upon
the whole world. Could it be that we are in that hour on the
Lord's time clock? Surely the temptations in our society are
greater than any in the history of our people. 

(Jesus said the hour of trial or temptation would be like no
other in world history. Daniel spoke about the same time, and so
did Jeremiah. I have expounded WHEN that hour will come in the
prophetic time table of the Lord, in other studies on this
website. It is NOT NOW, it is YET to come. It is the "great
tribulation" at the very end of this age - the last 42 months of
this age, before Jesus returns to this earth. We are most
assuredly NOT in this hour of temptation at present. Today,
compared to that time of trouble such as never has been, we are
in a Sunday afternoon picnic under warm sunny skies. But strange
ideas on certain verses in the Bible, with certain wrong "date
settings" give rise to strange and false ideas of Bible prophecy
- Keith Hunt)

We are surrounded by unashamed sin and rebellion against God's
Commandments. If this is the hour of temptation, surely we are
approaching the dawn, and the end of the night of spiritual
darkness.

(This sin and rebellion has not yet reached its climax - it will
get a whole lot worse, and deception will be so great that Jesus
said IF it was possible even the very elect would be deceived -
Matthew 24 - Keith Hunt)

Many of us in the Israel Truth movement believe that the messages
to the churches in the second and third chapters of the book of
Revelation refer to seven church ages for the Israelite church.
The period of the great revivals in North America and Britain
were in the Philadelphian church period. That church period would
include the nineteenth century and a few years into the twentieth
century. The Lord had great praise for the Philadelphian church
and promised them, "Because thou hast kept the word of my
patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation,
which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon
the earth." Revelation 3:10. As I understand it, those people
would be spared the hour of temptation because they would be gone
before it occurred. 


(Oh the silliness of ideas that look upon the Protestant church
of the Israel nations of the West, as being talked about in
Revelation 2 and 3. Nothing could be further from the truth of
the matter. First the Protestant churches are an off-shoot of the
Roman Catholic church. They did not exist until the so-called
reformation. They came OUT OF the Roman Catholic church. Most of
the British Israel groups believe the Church of England - the
Anglican church - as well as many of the Protestant fundamental
church of the 17th and 18th century were God's true church having
a revival. Again nothing could be further away from the truth.
The Church of England and all Protestant churches of the
Reformation, came OUT OF the Roman church. The true church of God
has always existed APART FROM - SEPARATE FROM - the Roman church.
The Church of England is very much like the Roman church in
practices and teachings, except they reject the Pope as head man,
then again the Church of England has a head priest. Most of the
British Israel groups cannot see the depths of Satan. They cannot
see that Sunday worship, Easter worship, All Saints Day
(Halloween), Christ-mass day, are from Rome, and are false and
wrong. They cannot see that the true Church of God has from the
beginning been SEPARATE from the Church of Rome. They are not
willing to look at how Rome brought in false practices and
traditions, and many false teachings - immortality of the soul,
going to heaven at death (if you've been a "good person"),
purgatory, an ever lasting burning hell-fire for the wicked, and
many more wrong teachings. They cannot see that many of those
"revival preachers" of the 19th century, were wrong in theology
and practices of Christian worship; many of them were "hell-fire"
preachers - if you did not repent and follow their theology, you
would burn in hell forever. Most British Israel groups are
BLINDED to the facts of history; oh they know some good history
that proves most of the western nations are the House of Israel,
but then they turn a blind-eye away from the recorded history of
the true Church of God, as for practice and theology, and how
Rome perverted, twisted, changed, the Word of God, as it adopted
pagan practices and incorrect theology - Keith Hunt)
 

Many of us have said our grandparents would not have believed our
nations could sink to the level of sin we find ourselves in, and
they were fortunate to be spared the evil that has taken over
everywhere. How much further can we go into depravity before the
final judgment falls?

(Well we shall yet go further into depravity of sin and
wickedness - Keith Hunt)

If a thousand years of our time is a day on the Lord's clock (2
Peter 3:8), then the hour of temptation would be about 42 years.
If that is so, we must be well into it. 

(The verse in Peter has been used so very wrong by so many over
the past decades. The verse also says a day to the Lord is as a
thousand years. Hence Peter was showing that God was in charge of
time - slowing it down or speeding it up, as far as Bible
prophecy is concerned. Hence Jesus said we are to WATCH - keep an
eye on world events, for certain things MUST come to pass before
the last 42 months of this age will come, and Jesus will return
in power and glory. This verse cannot be used to prove an hour
would then be 42 years. And so, as the author says, "be well into
it." Many it would seem in the British Israel groups, must be
spending hours trying to connect this date with that date, which
is connected to this other date, which goes with that date and
etc. - Keith Hunt)

The Lord allows people to bring forth the wickedness that is in
their hearts completely before judgement falls. They have no
shame or guilt, and their hearts are hardened because of
continual sin. God allowed the people of the Holy Land to
continue in sin in the time of Abraham, but He had a future
judgement prepared for them. "And he said unto Abram, Know of a
surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not
theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four
hundred years; And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will
I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.
And thou shalt go to thy fathers in peace; thou shalt be buried
in a good old age. But in the fourth generation they shall come
hither again: for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet
full." Genesis 15:13-16. God is not mocked; he does not let sin
continue forever. He has a time reserved for judging the sins of
the world. Sin has to come to fullness, and then God will act.
We wonder how much more sin our nations can take. In Canada, a
judge in Ontario over turned the law against prostitution. In
British Columbia, a judge overturned the law against assisted
suicides. For many years now people across the nation have been
killing unborn babies. Homosexual acts are no longer recognized
as sin. 

(Yes sure sin has increased, and certainly the killing of the
most innocent - through "abortion on demand" - "free choice" -
the babies who will never be born, is a HUGE SIN!! Yes and one
day we shall reap what we have sown - we like death, so God will
give it to us. The day of trouble such as never was and never
will be again, is NOT HERE YET!! We as a people shall yet fall
into deeper sin!! Keith Hunt)

..... The sins in our nations keep increasing. God is testing
people to see who will remain faithful to Him, and then He will
make those people rulers in his Kingdom. The promise to people in
the Laodicean church age (our generation) is: "To him that
overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I
also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne."
Revelation 3:21.
..........

Note:


If this British Israel group in Burnaby, B.C. believe we are into
this hour (according to the above is 42 years) - well into this
hour, then that may account for the editor of their publication
forever trying to tie this date with that date. And if 2012
proves to be no tie, he'll move on and figure some new date tying
for 2013 and 2014. 

Much has yet to happen in Bible prophecy as I show you on this
website. We NEED to do as Jesus said, WATCH!! NOT SET DATES!!
