Hear Ye The Rod! Judgment’s Voice


“…Hear   Ye   The   Rod…”

The LORD’S voice crieth unto the city, and the man of wisdom shall see thy name: hear ye the rod, and who hath appointed it.”

(Micah 6:9)

In Micah 6:6-9 the Lord has a controversy with


Not ignorance in general, I’m talking about willful ignorance… being stupid on purpose. People don’t like it when you say this or that is God’s judgment.

You want controversy?  Just say Katrina was the judgment of God or tell people Haiti’s earthquake was the judgment of Almighty God.  If you really want to stir them up, say that AIDS is God’s judgment on sodomites.

That’s when people tell you what they really think. Oh, “You’re not very Christlike… Jesus preached love… Jesus said you shouldn’t judge… He said let him that is without sin cast the first stone…” and all that other stuff liberal Devils love to twist and take out of context. (See picture to right)

But even they have to admit, whether you’re talking about AIDS, whether you’re talking about 9/11 or some natural disaster, God still knew about it before it happened… He knew who would get hurt; He knew how many people would die; but He let it happen anyway!

God rules and overrules in the affairs of men and there’s not a tragedy in this world that has ever taken Him by surprise.  In fact I believe He does things to shake us up every now and then… get us out of our comfort zone. “Hear ye the rod!

The purpose of a rod is to bring the pain.  It’s got no mouth but it speaks volumes.  Let me illustrate.  My nephew is a great kid but he can be every bit as stubborn as his uncle Jason.  Mom can say, “Seth, stop that…” But he won’t pay her a bit of attention. She can say, “Stop that or I’ll call your dad…” and he’ll probably hand her the phone.

But when he hears Papa’s belt unbuckle and that pap-pap-pap sound it makes coming out of the belt loops… son, does he ever get cooperative!  He knows he’s sinned and he’s real anxious to get it right.  He hears the rod! And because he hears it, he might not have to feel it.

The problem we have in this country is the same problem Israel had.  We FEEL the rod but we don’t HEAR it. “For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the LORD of hosts.” (Isaiah 9:13)

Arnold Murray The False Teacher


As I understand it Arnold Murray teaches that the fruit which Eve ate of in Genesis 3:6 did not come from a tree but was the product of satanic genitalia of sorts. In other words, Eve had sex with the serpent.

I have heard that prostitution is the oldest profession on earth but if this doctrine is correct, prostitution takes a backseat (no pun intended) to homosexuality. I say that because whatever this fruit was, the Bible says Eve “. . . gave also unto her husband with her; and HE DID EAT.” (Gen 3:6)

That doesn’t sit too well with me. I know there have been homosexuals down through the ages but I find it hard to believe that Adam was the first fag and that Eve engaged in bestiality (Satan appeared as a serpent in the Garden of Eden).

As the “story” goes, after having sex with her husband and Satan, Eve conceived and bore twins whom she named Cain and Abel. That’s neither here nor there. They could have been twins because the Bible mentions Eve bearing twice but it only mentions her conceiving once. So it is “possible” but the Bible does not even hint at Cain and Abel being twins. But this cult goes further and says that Cain was Eve’s child by Satan and Abel was hers by Adam.

Christ wants us to understand there are plantings of God and plantings of the devil. The plantings of that wicked one began in the garden of Eden with the conception of Cain and follow down through his progeny, the Kenites. (Newsletter #195, Jan 1995. See also, #202, August 1995).

If this were true (and it’s not) it would make the possibility of them being twins even more unlikely. Not only would it violate the laws of nature, I’m fairly certain it’s a statistical/genetic improbability. Furthermore, Eve named her firstborn son “Cain” which means “Gotten.”  For she said, “I have gotten a man from the Lord.” (Gen 4:1)   Now, why would Eve name him “Cain” knowing that the little bastard was the offspring of Satan?  I know Eve gets picked on a lot, but do you really think she would’ve said that? I don’t think so.

Genesis 4:3 “And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD.”

Now, let’s use the same logic Murray uses in previous chapter and apply it to this verse. In so doing, we have no choice but to believe that Cain brought some kind of demonic genitalia as an offering unto the Lord. (Well, no wonder God rejected his offering! I say that with a smirk on my face.)

I mean I’ve always taught and believed that if something makes literal sense not to seek any other sense. After all there’s plenty in the Bible we don’t understand. Why complicate the simple things?

But I suppose in the sex crazed culture we live in it shouldn’t surprise us that a “minister” somewhere had his mind in the gutter when he read Genesis. 2Peter 2:14 talks about these ministers “Having eyes full of adultery…” (they see sex in everything) and since we’re talking about preachers is it any wonder that the same person accuses them of “. . . beguiling unstable souls?”
