Thank you as we begin our message today, a word with the King father it's, not enough to study the Bible as other books in order for it to be understood savingly, the Holy Spirit must move on our hearts as we search.

So so that we do something after we study prayer is the rustling of the wings of the angels that are on their way bringing us the boons of Heaven may we just now see and hear the angel in our house as the chariot wheels Rumble in prayer amen.

When Baptist Layman William Miller was a his Peak preaching about the second coming of Jesus back in 1844.

Something happened on May 24, 1844, Samuel, Morse.

He invented Morse code opened the first U.S Telegraph line between Baltimore and Washington D.C from the U.S Capitol building Morse sent to Baltimore the very first originally officially telegraphed words ever what hath God wrought, what hath God wrought? What does all this mean since one germ? One virus, one coronavirus, shut down, Airlines, closed, International borders, closed, churches, hospitals, Wall, Street, the state of New York.

What does all this mean? Our church is closed, covid 19., Disease, an economic meltdown, social, distancing fines for not wearing a mask penalties for going to the beach or fines to go to church in America in Canada and many countries it's far worse, what hath God wrought one? Scripture text, second, Peter, chapter, one verses, 19 to 21.

Go get your Bibles as I'm speaking, because of the Apostle Peter shares some profound implications for people today facing fear pandemic suicide because Peter himself experienced cataclysmic calamity colossal pandemics in his life.

Remember, yes, the big fisherman Big, Mouth, quick, temper and fear.


The Apostle Peter experienced hurricane-like storms on the Sea of Galilee.

He experienced social distancing big time.

Remember crossing over to gadera and facing head on those naked wild demon-possessed men rushing down on their boat with chains, tempestuous Satan infected with covid-19, absolutely no human vaccine, raging shrieking, Terror stricken with fear, the College of 12 Apostles plunge into the water to keep six feet of social distance.

Fear, oh, and remember, Brave, Peter later in pilate's judgment, Hall fear to even identify with Jesus talk about six feet of social, distancing it's, Peter, curses and swears and denies his Lord with Oaths and imprecations.

But wait listen.

This is the same Peter who despite the niagara's of failures yet incredibly.

He walked on water.

Peter was in in Gethsemane with Jesus.

One of only three Peter uniquely privileged to be on the Mount of transfiguration honored to see Moses and Elijah privileged above all the others what's going on here.

What hath God wrought is there a vaccine here? Listen Peter deals with this question for those of us facing Calamity and disaster and coronavirus fears of jobs lost Health death.

No funerals, no food, no income insecurity.

Peter asks.

What does all this mean? Ah, I know, yes, I saw miracles.

Yes, I walked on water.

Yes, I saw Moses.

I, saw Elijah.

But listen up folks here in this 2021 celebrating camp meeting this year right here on Twitter and zoom and virtual camp meeting hope, TV, listen up.

If all you millerite descendants out there who talk on cell phones or iPads or tweet or text messages due to Samuel Morse, developing telecommunications in 1844 at the same time, William Miller was counting down to October 22 in the second coming listen up, New, York and Los, Angeles and Montreal and London and Sydney and Hong Kong.

All of you worldwide, coronavirus victims.

Listen up, America, reeling under the race riots and Carnage, an unbelievable civil rights debacles with the horrifying death of African-American George, Floyd, Peter says to us in 2021, put on your seat belts.

The best is just ahead.

God isn't caught short.

This is God's finest hour, your finest hour, because notice the text we have also a more sure word of Prophecy were unto ye do well that ye take heed as unto a light that shineth in a dark place until the day Dawn and the day star arise in your hearts, knowing this first that no Prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation for the prophecy came not in Old Time by the will of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

Folks, remember you remember in just one week, our world planet, Earth plunged, Into, Darkness disease, pandemic dark place, the curtain of death, I mean, the speed with which our world is tobogganing downhill into the apocalyptic Madness with coronavirus takes one's breath away like what happened back in the Dark Ages after Peter and Paul.

And the apostles died.

Watch out remember rights and ceremonies and practices scripted to the church was Paul or Peter.

Never even heard of propaganda, fake news apostasy in the Dark Ages.

You know that took centuries to develop this for us.

Only took a few days in just one week in May one day with the death of George Floyd under the knee of a white police officer until he begged I, can't breathe, Peter says, listen up time out pay attention it's happening today, too that ye take heed Peter says as unto a light, the shineth in a dark place until the day Dawn and the day star arise in your hearts I don't have to tell you it's dark out.

There friend our world, our nation, our city, our neighborhoods, our homes we are now in a dark, dark place like never before in history.

We are now in The Long, Dark, Night of sin.

You Americans, do you think things are going to get better again with this last election? Think again, oh, oh yes.

Many neon Hollywood.


Vegas lights are Gleaming.

The great white way Times, Square, Tinseltown Wall Street is going up up up off the charts, the boardwalk, but few if any of the world's benchmarks Mark, the pathway to life and Light, well, Pastor Lonnie don't.

We have TV news updates and editorials and the pundits, the White House task force health, Team and CNN and Fox News to help guide us.

No these aren't lights, be honest.

We can no longer trust our politicians and senators even preachers.

We live in a culture of liars and darkness.

God's word tells us.

They are the combustion of noxious gases rising from the miasma of pestilential morasses, which lead hapless Wanderers into sloughs of despondence suicide and fear and Terror.

They leave Millions today in total Darkness perishing in your nursing homes hungry homeless hopeless.

Not just wandering in the streets, open your eyes.

Myriads are now wandering in Mazes of doubt and skepticism error and total political uncertainty.

So suicide is epidemic America is in a meltdown.

So now the big question listen up, who is the cause of all this China a laboratory somewhere over there in Wuhan.


There is a very significant statement from a little young third, grader who never finished school in Portland Oregon.

But first remember in Matthew 24, Jesus used a unique New Testament word, telling about end time last day, prophecies, it's, a word rarely used in Scripture and even more scarcely used today in modern times, because it is so rare Jesus predicted in verses 6 and 7.


And you shall hear of wars and rumors of wars.

See not that you are troubled for all these things must come to pass.

But the end is not yet for nation will rise against nation and Kingdom against Kingdom.

And there will be famines pestilences and earthquakes in various places.

All these are the beginning of Sorrows that word pestilences pestilences, Webster's, Dictionary says, any contagious or infectious epidemic disease that is virulent and devastating.


It illustrates the bubonic plague.

Wow, virulent, virulent, you know what that means a virus without a cure pandemic.

But now from a little girl with only a third grade education written in New England in a book called The Great controversy page 589 and 590.

while appearing to the children of men as a great physician talking about Satan here, who can heal all their maladies.

He will bring disease and disaster until populist cities like New, York, Los, Angeles, London until populist cities are reduced to ruin and desolation.

Even now he is at work in accidents and calamities by sea and by land in great conflagrations in Fierce tornadoes and terrific.

Hail storms in Tempest floods, Cyclones tidal waves and earthquakes in every place that in a thousand forms Satan is exercising his power.

Now notice this next sentence, he sweeps away the ripening Harvest and famine and distress follow he imparts to the air, a deadly taints and thousands perish by the pestilence.

These visitations are to become more and more frequent and disastrous destruction will be upon both man and Beast and they're saying now that your pet can get Coronavirus.

What does all this mean you get in touch with the white estate? My good college friend, Jim Nix, regarding some of Ellen White's references to civil rights and end time, race riots, like we've never seen before and pestilences toward the end of time.

You'll get back pages of her references too frightening for me to share here today, online.

Let me tell you the worst is yet to come so that's.

Why II Peter 1 19-21 says, ye take heed as unto a light that shines in a dark place until the day Dawn and the day star arise in your hearts.

Good news, Saints there's going to be light the day star can arise today in your heart.

Listen up blessed, be God that he has given us.

The sure light that shines in our long dark night.

This book illumines the path of life, even to the very end, even in the face of kovid, 19., there's, Divine, Assurance.

Here friend God cannot lie.

He says, Lonnie in faith and humility.

You today have the right to claim God's promises today, be not afraid, ask God to Grant you the guidance of that same holy spirit, Power, who inspired prophecy, the same power that created the world that same power to help you.

You know, one third of this book is prophecy.

That means it's a Guiding Light into the future for America Canada, South, America, Mexico, the world, Amen, what hath God wrought? What does all this covid-19 mean, race violence and our major cities Carnage by evil and paid hoodlums? Listen friend, Peter says, it means simply we have the more sure word we're unto ye do well to take heed.

Can you hear Peter, hey time to take god seriously time to get back to the word back to Bible study and prayer time to fulfill the Three Angels messages of Revelation, 14 6-12 to worship Him who made the heavens and the earth and the Seas and The Fountains of waters.

Are you listening? One more scripture acts.

17 11 says, the bereans were more noble than the Thessalonians because they searched the scriptures daily.

Now here in the United States, we just finished a rather violent election with Mobsters storming.

The U.S Capitol, you know, every time there's an election in any country.

You always have pollsters here.

We have the Gallup poll or the Harris poll, or the writer's poll, reporting on political Trends and projected possible outcomes.

Well, here in America, we also have something called Barna research.

Now George Varna always does the religious polls.

The religious trends, I don't, always like his analyzes, but he's usually right go read his latest George Barna says that Seventh-Day Adventists used to be people of the book you didn't get into an argument with an Adventist about the Bible.

They won all the debates and all the Adventists read their Bibles daily.

But now he's, saying, um, not anymore of all the modern Protestants and Christians who read the Bible I think we're somewhere down on number 14 in the list.

And for Adventists we're, even worse for attending prayer meetings.

We don't read the Bible anymore.

Now, there's a certain Dr, Arlene Taylor from Saint Helena, California hospital, she's a brain specialist and works with the brain specialists of Adventist and Christian non-Christian brain specialists.

In fact, Jeannie happened to listen to her powerful research on the brain in a message.

She gave live in Chico California.

But I suggest you go to her website, Dr Taylor reports on non-believer brain, Specialists of brain surgeons.

And who are now doing laboratory experiments on? Are you ready? Prayer scientists? In blind studies now know that prayer is power, prayer changes brain cells and increases brain activity, especially if there's praise in prayer, but here's, what she's discovered from these brain specialists.

If you read something spiritual like the Bible out loud every day and it's got to be for 12 minutes without exception, are you ready for this that can do something in your brain that can actually postpone and maybe prevent dementia and profoundly impact Alzheimer's scientists now are showing that that's? Why Jeannie and I are reading the Andrews University study Bible with the Sabbath school lessons and we're marking the whole conflict of the agencies and we're reading it every single day out loud, 12 minutes.

We take turns reading it.

And in fact, we're, right at the end of great controversy, I just read that Passage we'll be finishing it up in about next week.

All five volumes just this past year during the pandemic.

You see Peter for us here at the camp meeting in 2021 Peter makes an impassioned appeal Adventists get back to the Bible get back to the book get back to praying out loud.

In fact, that's, the purpose of Our Hope talks with Lonnie belichenko 365 days of devotionals that I've been putting here online for you Ellen White says, something interesting in signs of the Times October 28 back in 1897.

She says we only use one-third of our talents, including our brain.

Well, if we use a third of what our talents enable us to do, she says with the other two-thirds of our power we're working against Christ, hmm, working for Satan.

What hath God wrought covid-19 is a unique time in history it's, a unique invitation, a unique opportunity, not just for America it's time for the world to sit up and take notice time for you to take heed time for perspective, not fake news, not propaganda, not politics.

Not lies true perspective.

Now may I be honest, you know, listening to the president Trump back in 2020.

And now President Biden here in the United States in 2021 and Dr, Tony fauci and Dr Deborah Brooks and the political right.

And the political left trying to read between the explosive Politics on the right and on the left between CNN and Fox, News it's hard to discern between what is a real threat.

And what is just simple panic and hysteria right? Having perspective is good by using it is better.

Peter reminds us.

Listen up.

This word gives us perspective because the final movements will be rapid ones.

God's servant says, press together press together pressed together.

These are exciting times these are frightening times.

But these are also thrilling times all of us know something is about to happen.

Lord Peter speaks with authority.

And he says that the scriptures profoundly are important for us here in 2021 it's, the voice of God speaking to our soul, stirring pleading startling and Supernatural times are right before us.

And it is fatal to be careless or indifferent yet, a little while, and he that shall come will come and will not Tarry Peter says, we cannot afford to be disobedient to God's invitation that he's giving us right here today.

If we refuse, we shall have no probation, choose ye this day, whom ye will serve God or Mammon right now, while it's still today, help us respond out loud as for me and my house we will serve the Lord in Jesus name, amen, the Lord, bless you and keep you the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto.

You may the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

Thank you.
