Chapter 33

Sentencing by the Judge

We would all like to think that this court has not been convened to render a judgment between Heaven or Hell, and that we could stay in our seemly safe “Christian bubble”. We would like to believe that this question of eternity would fall only on the accused, which have not accepted Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. No, the reality has been exposed, and this court stands strictly for the Saints of God, the ones who have surrendered their lives to the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus was sentenced to die at age 33 and He gave up his life so we could have the strength to choose the abundant life. The question is: “Are we going to give up our life, by his strength, so we can live the abundant life?”

Since you are the judge you will pronounce sentencing, either blessing, based on actions of truth applied, or punishment from actions of truth denied. If you are not sure on what sentence would be most appropriate, not to fret, the accused is already living out one of the two sentences. All that must be done is to lay his life over each of the sentences and compare to see which one he lines up with, then consider his closing statement. This is a fail safe way to hand down your verdict and be confident in your judgment.

Sentence #1

Deu 7:12-15 If you pay attention to these laws and are careful to follow them, then the Lord your God will keep his covenant of love with you, as he swore to your forefathers. He will love you and bless you and increase your numbers. He will bless the fruit of your womb, the crops of your land - your grains, new wine and oil - the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks in the land that he swore to your forefathers to give you. You will be blessed more than any other people; none of your men or women will be childless, nor any of your livestock without young. The Lord will keep you free from EVERY DISEASE. He will not inflict on you the horrible diseases you knew in Egypt, but he will inflict them on all who hate you.

Deu 11:13 So if you faithfully obey the commands I am giving you today - to love the Lord your God and to serve him with all of your heart and with all of your soul - then I will send rain on your land in its season, both autumn and spring rains, so that you may gather in your grain, new wine and oil. I will provide grass in the fields for your cattle, and you will eat and be satisfied.

Deu 14:2 ...for you are a people holy to the Lord your God. Out of all the peoples on the face of the earth, the Lord has chosen you to be his treasured possession.

Deu 26:19 He has declared that he will set you in praise, fame and honor high above all the nations he has made and that you will be a people holy to the Lord your God, as he promised.

Deu 28:3 You will be blessed in the city and blessed in the country.

Deu 28:5-8 Your basket and your kneading trough will be blessed. You will be blessed when you come in and when you go out. The Lord will grant that the enemies who rise up against you will be defeated before you. They will come at you from one direction but flee from you in seven. The Lord will send a blessing on your barns and on EVERYTHING you put your hand to.

Deu 28:10-11 Then all the peoples of the earth will see that you are called by my name of the Lord and they will fear you. The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity…

Deu 28:12-13 The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the works for your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail, … you will always be at the top, NEVER at the bottom.

Now that is Freedom!

Sentence #2

Deu 28:15-67 However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you. You will be cursed in the city and cursed in the country. Your basket and your kneading trough will be cursed. The fruit of your womb will be cursed, and the crops of your land, and the calves of your herds and the lambs of your flocks. You will be cursed when you come in and cursed when you go out. The Lord will send on you curses, confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruins because of the evil you have done in forsaking him.

The Lord will plague you with disease until he has destroyed you from the land you are entering to posses. The Lord will strike you with wasting disease, with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, with blight and mildew, which will plague you until you perish. The sky over head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron. The Lord will turn the rain of your country into dust and powder; it will come down from the skies unit you are destroyed.

The Lord will cause you to be defeated before your enemies. You will come at them from one direction but flee from them in seven, and you will become a thing of horror to all the Kingdoms on earth. Your carcasses will be food for all the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth, and there will be no one to frighten them away. The Lord will afflict you with the boils of Egypt and with tumors, festering sores and itch, from which you cannot be cured. The Lord will afflict you with madness, blindness and confusion of mind. At midday you will grope about like a blind man in the dark. You will be unsuccessful in everything you do; day after day you will be oppressed and robbed, with no one to rescue you. You will be pledged to be married to a woman, but another will take her and ravish her. You will build a house, but you will not live in it. You will plant a vineyard, but you will not enjoy its fruit. Your ox will be slaughtered before your eyes, but you will eat none of it. Your donkey will be forcibly taken from you and will not be returned. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and no one will rescue them. Your son and daughters will be given to another nation, and you will wear out your eyes watching for them day after day, powerless to lift a hand. A people that you do not know will eat what your land and labor produce, and you will have nothing but cruel oppression all your days. The sights you see will drive you mad. The Lord will afflict your knees and legs with painful boils that cannot be cured, spreading from your soles of your feet to the top of your head.

You will sow much seed in the field but you will harvest little, because locusts will devour it. You will plant vineyards and cultivate them but you will not drink the wine or gather the grapes, because worms will eat them.

The alien who lives among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower. He will lend to you, but you will not lend to him. He will be the head, but you will be the tail.

All these curses will come upon you and overtake you until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the Lord your God and observe the commands and decrees he gave you. They will be a sign and a wonder to you and your descendants forever. Because you did not serve the Lord your God joyfully and gladly in the time of prosperity, therefore, in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and dire poverty, you will serve the enemies the Lord sends against you. He will put an iron yoke on your neck until he has destroyed you.

Then the Lord will scatter you among all nations, from one end of the earth to the other. There you will worship other gods - gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known. Among those nations you will find no repose, no resting place for the sole of your feet. There, the Lord will give you an anxious mind, eyes weary with longing, and a despairing heart. You will live in constant suspense, filled with dread both night and day, never sure of your life. In the morning you will say, “If only it were evening!” and in the evening, “If only it were morning!”

So Satan has you convinced that this is Freedom?

2 Cor 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is Freedom.

The Cup Is Full And We Are Out Of Time

It does not matter what time you start this repentance process. But know there is a particular day in which a level of purity will be necessary for you, in order that you may enter a wedding feast.

Unfortunately, some of us will not have the three year time period needed to perfect purity, before Christ will call His bride up. For those people, He has allowed their own wickedness to fashion the instrument by which He will use to remove the dross from His church. Therefore, to be given the time needed to complete perfection one must restore his pledge and start to pay back what he has taken by robbery, so he may have the time to walk in the statutes which ensure life.

Eze 33:15 … if a wicked man restores a pledge, pays back what he has taken by robbery, walks by the statute which ensure life without committing iniquity, he will surely live; he shall not die.

The pledge is to recommit to your marriage vow of keeping yourself only for Him in purity. Fasting will start paying back what you have taken by robbery, and perhaps give you the time to finish your pilgrimage to purity even though it shall be the last half of the Tribulation.

Eze 33:12 “And you son of man, say to your fellow citizens, ‘The righteousness of a righteous man will not deliver him in the day of his transgression, and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he will not stumble because of it in the day when he turns from his wickedness; whereas a righteous man will not be able to live by his righteousness on the day when he commits sin.’

You can see why knowing the signs of the times are imperative not only for the wicked but also for the righteous!

Do not be caught reflecting on what you think your years of righteousness may entails.

(NASB) Joel 1:14-15 Consecrate a fast, Proclaim a solemn assembly; Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land to the house of the Lord your God, and cry out to the Lord. Alas for the day of the Lord is near, and it will come as destruction from the Almighty.

Fasting raises the body’s purity and takes our vibrations ever higher.

Rev 3:3 ‘Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. If therefore you will not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I come upon you.’

The Lord gives us the date to this time, that is “from the day when the temple of the Lord was founded” or the starting point when he is going to start to remove all the things which are polluting His bride, when He says “consider”.

In other words, this founding day you should note and evaluate the quantity harvested with what one would normally expect to see returned in an average year. Is there little seed in the barn? Have the trees and vines produced what they would normally bare?

He says from this day on, He will bless us because to start us on this road to Zion you need to cut the supply of food. How much should we expect to be cut and if it is removed should we use this seemingly devastation as a fleece to what is to come?

Haggai 2:15-18 “ ‘But now, do consider from this day onward: before one stone was placed on another in the temple of the Lord, from that time when one came to a grain heap of twenty measures, there would be only ten; and when one came to the wine vat to draw fifty measures, there would be only twenty. I smote you and every work of your hands with blasting winds, mildew, and hail; yet you did not come back to Me, ‘declares the Lord. ‘Do consider from this day onward, from the twenty-fourth day of the ninth month; from the day when the temple of the Lord was founded, consider: Is the seed still in the barn? Even including the vine, the fig tree, the pomegranate, and the olive tree, it has not borne fruit. Yet from this day on I will bless you.’ ”

September 2008 has past and what do we see that is on a world wide scale that could be a prelude to God starting to build His temple, our bodies; where we can clearly see the start of an overthrow of the kingdoms and powers of these kingdoms of the nations?

If you believe we are close to the end times, then maybe we should consider that September 2008 we witnessed the start of what will be a global economic melt down. In fact you could say; the world’s economy is on fire and burning to the ground as we helplessly watch the merchants of the earth weep and mourn. Such an event must have been recorded in the word of God.

Rev 18:2-4 And he cried out with a mighty voice, saying, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great! And she has become a dwelling place of demons and a prison of every unclean spirit, and a prison of every unclean and hateful bird. “For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the passion of her immorality, and the kings of the earth have committed acts of immorality with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich by the wealth of her sensuality.”

Rev 18:11-19 “And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more; cargoes of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every article of ivory and every article made from very costly wood and bronze and iron and marble, and cinnamon and spice and incense and perfume and frankincense and wine and olive oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargoes of horses and chariots and slaves and human lives. “And the fruit you long for has gone from you, and all things that were luxurious and splendid have passed away from you and men will no longer find them. The merchants of these things, who became rich from her, will stand at a distance because of the fear of her torment, weeping and mourning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, she who was clothed in fine linen and purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls; for in one hour such great wealth has been laid waste! And every shipmaster and every passenger and sailor, and as many as make their living by the sea, stood at a distance, and were crying out as they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘Woe, woe, the great city, in which all who had ships at sea became rich by her wealth, for in one hour she has been laid waste!

Rev 18:22-24 “And the sound of harpists and musicians and flute players and trumpeters will not be heard in you any longer; and no craftsman of any craft will be found in you any longer; and the sound of a mill will not be heard in you any longer; and the light of a lamp will not shine in you any longer; and the voice of the bridegroom and bride will not be heard in you any longer; for the merchants were the great men of the earth, because all the nations were deceived by your sorcery. And in her was found the blood of the prophets and of saints and of all who have been slain on the earth.”

Zec 8:9 Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Let your hands be strong, you who are listening in these days to these words from the mouth of the prophets, those who spoke in the day that the foundation of the house of the Lord of hosts was laid, to the end that the temple might be built.

But you say; “The Lord cannot return until the temple of the Lord is rebuilt and no one will know the hour of His return, only the Father”. You are quite right in this but remember this temple is your body and this is only the foundation or the starting point of His bride’s time of purification.

2 Thes 2:3 Let no one in any way deceive you, for it will not come unless the apostasy comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, displaying himself as being God.

All you so called “born again believers” out there which includes the elect of God are caught up within this apostasy.

Jer 8:4 “And you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord, “ ‘Do men fall and not get up again? Does one turn away and not repent? Why then has this people, Jerusalem, turned away in continual apostasy? They hold fast to deceit, they refuse to return. I have listened and heard, they have spoken what is not right; No man repented of his wickedness, saying, ‘What have I done?’ Everyone turned to his course, like a horse charging into battle.

People wake up, we all have been deceived! Don’t think that you get to leave this mess in rapture, because you are the mess. And the only ticket out of here will come after three and a half years into the tribulation period. That is after this man of lawlessness is revealed; at the same time that God’s two witnesses ascend up to glory. God did not send these two messengers because a rapture removed His witness, but because there was no one in the world to expose the apostate church. God sent them because His first fruits had been deceived and were not ready to go.

Rev 7:3 … “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until we have sealed the bond-servants of our God on their foreheads.”

After the first fruits leave the devastation becomes so great the God must intervene.

Mark 13:20 Unless the Lord had shorted those days, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect whom he chose, He shorted the days.

The Lord is only going to call up his bride after He first: reveals the standard and second: the time needed to complete repentance, or change into her wedding gown.

In the past, the wonderful thing about following God’s directives is that there was no unnatural deadline. But with this boiling pot comes an unnatural deadline which makes it imperative to complete our purification process in the first half.

I was well into a love feast with the Lord, when the Holy Spirit, through the word of Ezekiel, revealed to me the day this boiling pot will start to lay siege to Jerusalem.

Eze 24:1-14 And the word of the Lord came to me in the ninth year, in the tenth month, on the tenth of the month, saying: “Son of man, write the name of the day, this very day. The king of Babylon has laid siege to Jerusalem this very day.
And speak a parable to the rebellious house, and say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God,
        “ ‘Put on the pot, put it on, and also pour water in it;
        Put into it the pieces,
        Every good piece, the thigh, and the shoulder;
        Fill it with choice bones.
        Take the choicest of the flock,
        And also pile wood under the pot.
        Make it boil vigorously.
        Also seeth its bones in it.’ ”
        “ ‘Therefore, thus says the Lord God,
        “ ‘Woe to the bloody city,
        To the pot in which there is rust
        And whose rust has not gone out of it!
        Take out of it piece after piece,
        Without making a choice.
        “ ‘For her blood is in her midst;
        She placed it on the bare rock;
        She did not pour it on the ground
        To cover it with dust.
        That it may cause wrath to come up to take vengeance,
        I have put her blood on the bare rock,
        That it may not be covered.
        “ ‘Therefore, thus says the Lord God,
        “ ‘Woe to the bloody city!
        I also shall make the pile great.
        Heap on the wood, kindle the fire,
      (Lam 4:11 He has kindled a fire in Zion.)
        Boil the flesh well,                              (Isaiah 10:16 and Psalms 78:19-22)
        And mix in the spices,
        And let the bones be burned.
        Then set it empty on its coals,
        So that it may be hot,
        And its bronze may glow,
        And its filthiness may be melted in it,
        Its rust consumed.
        “She has wearied Me with toil,
        Yet her great rust has not gone from her;
        Let her rust be in the fire!
        “In your filthiness is lewdness.
        Because I would have cleansed you,
        Yet you are not clean,
        You will not be cleansed from your filthiness again,
        Until I have spent My wrath on you.
“ ‘I, the Lord, have spoken; it is coming and I shall act. I shall not relent, and I shall not pity, and I shall not be sorry; according to your ways and according to your deeds I shall judge you,’ declares the Lord God.’ ”

We should consider that the fire has started to be kindled, and it will be only a relatively short time before all flesh, that is present, will be placed in the boiling pot.

Habakkuk 3:16 I heard and my inward parts trembled, at the sound my lips quivered, decay enters my bones, and in my place I tremble. Because I must wait quietly for the day of distress, for the people to arive who will invade us.

We now know the time is close in which we must be ready, but how long will it take me to go from where I am now to where I must be? There will be no sign given to this wicked generation except for the sign of Jonah.

Jonah 3:4 Then Jonah began to walk; and he cried out and said, “Yet forty days and Nineveh will be overthrown. Then the people of Nineveh believed in God; and they called a fast and put on sackcloth from the greatest to the least of them. When the word reached the king of Nineveh, he arose from his throne, laid aside his robe from him, covered himself with sackcloth, and sat on the ashes. And he issued a proclamation and it said, “In Nineveh by the decree of the king and his nobles; Do not let man, beast, herd, or flock taste a thing. Do not let them eat or drink water. “But both man and breast must be covered with sackcloth; and let men call on God earnestly that each may turn from his wicked way and from the violence which is in his hands.

Rev 3:18-21 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire, that you may become rich, and white garments, that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed, and eye salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline; be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come into him, and will dine with him, and he with Me. He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.

Mark 13:13 “And you will be hated by all on account of My name, but the one who endures to the end, he shall be saved.

Psalms 23 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quite waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me. Thou dost prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; Thou hast anointed my head with oil; Surely goodness and loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

The Covenant Which Can Not Be Broken

To all humanity with the desire of knowing this “Word of God” and are consumed with knowing the practical and seeing the relevance in every area of life through the matchless grace of God. Take heart all of you who think there is no hope, for God has made a covenant with himself regarding you and all of humanity, which can not be broken. Praise God!

Eze 16:47-49 “Yet you have not merely walked in their ways or done according to their abominations; but, if that were too little, you acted more corruptly in all your conduct than they. As I live, declares the Lord God, Sodom, your sister, and her daughters, have not done as you and your daughters have done. “ ‘Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters had arrogance, abundant food, and careless ease, but she did not help the poor and needy.’ ”

Eze 16:53-55 “ ‘Nevertheless, I will restore their captivity, the captivity of Sodom and her daughters, the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, and alone with them your own captivity, in order that you may bear your humiliation, and feel ashamed for all that you have done when you become a consolation to them.

Consolation 5162; a primary root; probable to sigh, ie: breathe strongly; by implication to be sorry, ie: (in the favorable sense) to pity, console or reflex; or unfavorable to avenge oneself: comfort self, ease (one self), repent (er, -ing, self).

This is plan “B” and after you complete repentance in captivity, God restores you to them and them to you, and in this way you become a consolation to each other. Then, His love transports you to heaven where you bear your humiliation and feel ashamed for all that you have done. This act of reunion with the elect (plan “A”) wipes away all their tears and further reveals the glory of the love of God.

Eze 16:55 “And your sisters, Sodom with her daughters and Samaria with her daughters, will return to their former state, and you with your daughters will also return to your former state.

Eze 16:58 You have borne the penalty of your lewdness and abominations, the Lord declares.

Luke 12:58-59 “For while you are going with your opponent to appear before the magistrate, on your way there make an effort to settle with him, in order that he may not drag you before the judge, and the judge turn you over to the constable, and the constable throw you into prison. “I say to you, you shall not get out of there until you have paid the very last cent.”

Eze 16:59-63 “ ‘For thus says the Lord God, I will also do with you as you have done, you who have despised the oath by breaking the covenant. Nevertheless, I will remember my covenant with you in the days of your youth, and I will establish an everlasting covenant with you. Then you will remember your ways and be ashamed when you receive your sisters, both your older and younger; and I will give them to you as daughters, but not because of your covenant. Thus I will establish My covenant with you, and you shall know that I am the Lord, in order that you may remember and be ashamed, and never open your mouth anymore because of your humiliation, when I have forgiven you for all that you have done, the Lord God declares.’ ”

Eze 24:13 “ ‘In your filthiness is lewdness. Because I would have cleaned you, yet you are not clean, you will not be cleansed from your filthiness again, Until I have spent My wrath on you. “ ‘I, the Lord, have spoken; it is coming and I shall act. I shall not relent, and I shall not pity, and I shall not be sorry; according to your ways and according to your deeds I shall judge you, declares the Lord.’ ”

Isaiah 26:19-21 Your dead will live; Their corpses will rise. You who lie in the dust, awake and shout for joy. For your dew is as the dew of the dawn, And the earth will give birth to the departed spirits. Come, my people, enter into your rooms, And close your doors behind you; Hide for a little while, Until indignation runs its course. For behold, the Lord is about to come out from His place To punish the inhabitants of earth for their iniquity.

2 Tim 2:13 If we are faithless, He remains faithful; for He cannot deny Himself.

Romans 3:3 What then? If some did not believe, their unbelief will not nullify the faithfulness of God, will it?

Praise God for He is faithful to His covenant,
Despite our faithlessness to Christ’s covenant!

This book is "The Lamb’s Book of Life" and just like all the other books in the Bible it was directed by the Holy Spirit through a human being. It will be opened together with all the other sixty-six books of the Bible at the great white throne of God. Their purpose is to judge people from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds. That is, to have your name written in The Lamb’s Book of Life, your choices in life must harmonize and run parallel to this book; replicating in you the integrity of Christ’s blood and body.

Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, the great and the small, standing before the throne, and the book was opened, which is the book of life; and the dead were judged from the things which were written in the books, according to their deeds.

I, Robert Victor Sinnamon, can think of no great honor than to serve my Lord and Savior by recording His revealing to me; who by His grace and Spirit has led me to an understanding and given me the practical knowledge to receive His best. This undertaking was done in conjunction with my brother, Glen Allan Sinnamon. My brother and I are two witnesses for Christ.

Rev 10:7-9 … that there shall be delay no longer, but in the days of the voice of the seventh angle, when he is about to sound, then the mystery of God is finished, as He preached to His servants the prophets. And the voice which I heard from heaven, I heard again speaking with me, and saying, “Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the land.” And I went to the angel, telling him to give me the little book. And he said to me, “Take it and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be sweet as honey.”
