Zechariah
Zechariah

  • “Then the angel said, ‘Almighty LORD, you have been angry with Jerusalem and the cities of Judah for seventy years now. How much longer will it be before you show them mercy?’ The LORD answered the angel with comforting words, and the angel told me to proclaim what the LORD Almighty had said: ‘I have a deep love and concern for Jerusalem, my holy city…My temple will be restored, and the city will be rebuilt.’” (Zechariah 1:12-14,16 – GN)

Haggai

  • “The LORD Almighty said to Haggai, “These people say that this is not the right time to rebuild the Temple.” The LORD then gave this message to the people through the prophet Haggai: ‘My people, why should you be living in well-built houses while my Temple lies in ruins? Don't you see what is happening to you? You have planted much grain, but have harvested very little. You have food to eat, but not enough to make you full.


  • You have wine to drink, but not enough to get drunk on! You have clothing, but not enough to keep you warm. And workers cannot earn enough to live on. Can’t you see why this has happened? Now go up into the hills, get lumber, and rebuild the Temple; then I will be pleased and will be worshiped as I should be.’” (Haggai 1:3-8)



  • “My Spirit remains among you, just as I promised when you came out of Egypt. So do not be afraid. For this is what the Lord Almighty says: In just a little while I will again shake the heavens and the earth. I will shake the oceans and the dry land, too. I will shake all the nations, and the treasures of all the nations will come to this Temple.

I will shake the oceans and the dry land, too. I will shake all the nations, and the treasures of all the nations will come to this Temple. , says the Lord Almighty. The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, says the Lord Almighty. The future glory of this Temple will be greater than its past glory, says the Lord Almighty. And in this place I will bring peace. I, the Lord Almighty, have spoken!” (Haggai 2:5-9)

The hills will become a plain, and the rough country will be made smooth. Then the glory of the LORD will be revealed, and all people will see it.

I keep my promise for thousands of generations and forgive evil and sin...’” (Exodus 34:5-7)*

  • “The new covenant that I will make with the people of Israel will be this: I will put my law within them and write it on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

exact likeness of God’s own being.” (Hebrews 1:3)



Dealing with evil
Dealing with evil Lord! In your name we spoke God's message, by your name we drove out many demons and performed many miracles!' Then I will say to them,

  • “Everyone has become a captive of a fateful illusion that believes itself able to drive out evil by force. In this world where we everywhere marshal force against force, we must learn that force at best may succeed in containing a few manifestations of evil, but it can never conquer or eliminate evil. On the contrary, the force with which we fight evil has mainly the consequence that we ourselves become the victims of evil. As we resort to force against others, evil attacks us from behind and makes us evil ourselves.” - Helmut Gollwitzer


God s methods god s character
God’s methods: God’s character Lord! In your name we spoke God's message, by your name we drove out many demons and performed many miracles!' Then I will say to them,

  • “God could have destroyed Satan and his sympathizers as easily as one can cast a pebble to the earth; but he did not do this. Rebellion was not to be overcome by force. Compelling power is found only under Satan's government. The Lord's principles are not of this order. His authority rests upon goodness, mercy, and love; and the presentation of these principles is the means to be used. God's government is moral, and truth and love are to be the prevailing power.”



Torture
Torture punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent than the one derived from fear of punishment. -

  • 2009 study: 62% of white evangelicals felt that torture "can often" or "sometimes" be justified.

  • - 54% among those who attend religious services weekly

  • - 51% among those who attend religious services monthly

  • - 42% among those who seldom or never attend church


Freedom
Freedom punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent than the one derived from fear of punishment. -

  • “Evil arose in the context of freedom; there could not be evil in the absence of freedom. And yet freedom only provides the opportunity and is not the cause of evil. Freedom is the value that God will not surrender even in the face of sin...in the Christian account freedom is seamlessly tied to the character of God. God has, as it were, taken upon Himself to pay the price for freedom rather than solve the problem of sin by abolishing it.” - Sigve Tonstad



National defense authorization act 12 31 2011
National Defense Authorization Act: 12/31/2011 federal operators, but also for state and local law enforcement.”

  • “…the NDAA text affirms the President's authority to detain, via the Armed Forces, any person (‘including US citizens on US soil’) ‘who was part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners,’ or anyone who commits a ‘belligerent act’ against the U.S. or its coalition allies, under the law of war, ‘without trial, until the end of the hostilities…’ The text also authorizes trial by military tribunal…” - Wikipedia


The final message
The final message? federal operators, but also for state and local law enforcement.”

  • “It is the darkness of misapprehension of God that is enshrouding the world. Men are losing their knowledge of His character. It has been misunderstood and misinterpreted. At this time a message from God is to be proclaimed, a message illuminating in its influence and saving in its power. His character is to be made known. Into the darkness of the world is to be shed the light of His glory, the light of His goodness, mercy and truth. The last rays of merciful light, the last message of mercy to be given to the world, is the revelation of His character of love.” - Ellen G. White
