The Future of Prophecy Part 7


Sermon notes of Pastor Mark Downey

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 40:21-25

This is my first sermon of 2016.  If I were to encapsulate last year with one word I would say that it was the year of thunder.  I think there was an escalation of political, religious and economic rumblings and a whole lot of shaking going on; loud noises coming from all quarters.  Before we moved to Kentucky from Washington state, we had never heard thunder as loud as it gets here.  We live an area of northern Kentucky where the cold Arctic currents of wind clash with the warm winds coming up from the Gulf of Mexico and thus a great amount of thundering results.  Thunder usually precedes the winds of a storm.  Therefore, observing the signs of the times, 2016 looks like it will be the year of the winds, not only meteorologically, but the three components mentioned above, which happen to constitute Mystery Babylon.  Last year I wrote a two part sermon simply called 'Wind'.  Since I've been indulging in prophecy, I can now see a prophetic significance to wind, being that it has a lot to do with spiritual warfare.  In today's Scripture reading, verse 24 speaks of a whirlwind that separates the worthless chaff from the grain (“and shall take them away as stubble”); Israel is likened to wheat, because it bears godly fruits. However, there are other seeds that never should have been planted i.e. the seeds of hybridity, half breeds, and that is the “many waters” that the “great whore” of Babylon sits upon (Rev. 17:1), the world of mongrelization and the “chaff” that supports and promotes it.  The good guys in this spiritual warfare are opposed to the “many waters” and “chaff,” and they are called racists.  Nobody wants to be called a racist, except the racial messengers of God.  White lives matter.  The Bible calls it “the breath of life” (Gen. 2:7) breathed into the DNA of Adam by God; anyone who believes this is a bigot i.e. by God.  This breath or righteous bigotry was only given to the White race.  This Bible is the book of Adamic genetics (Gen. 5:1) to have the discrimination of God.

The Hebrew word 'ruach' is used for both wind and breath, which will be weaponized for the spiritual warfare ahead, to destroy all that is in the world (I John 2:16), the mongrel world that Christ said He was not a part of (“And He said unto them [the jews], Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world” John 8:23).  The Spirit of God is the same wind that will blow away the carnal nature of mankind and is the same thing as the “baptism of fire.”  Perhaps we could say that 2016 will be co-hosted by wind and fire, fanning the flames on a world “already kindled” (Luke 12:49) by the spiritual arsonists of God.  After all, “Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau [jews] for stubble” Obadiah 1:18.  Who is it that has this incredulous fantasy of Auschwitz reducing millions of their people to stubble?   Their fables, crafted to yield sympathy in perpetuity, are waning in light of their own propensity for war, violence and vicarious terrorism; being a terror unto good works.  Israel means 'ruling with God,' not ruling as God, as jews do.  The curse is broken as less and less people give credibility to the “chosen people” myth, choosing themselves in an apex of hypocrisy through their shallow manipulation of the media brainwashing industry.

Just a few days before Christmas (2015), rabbi Ben-Zion Gopstein, leader of an IsraeLIE orthodox synagogue of satan, published an op-ed branding Christians as “blood-sucking vampires” and calling for them to be expelled from their country.  Gopstein decried, “the lack of spiritual security” in Jerusalem, because of, “our centuries-old enemy – the Christian church.”  He called on all jews to raise a cry “and fight the devious phenomenon,” referring to Christianity as “that accursed religion.”  How's that for gratitude?  An antichrist country that gets the biggest slice of America's foreign aid pie annually, for over half a century, in the billions of dollars, and has the gall to bite the hand that feeds it.  Bible prophecy says that the real Israel would be a multitude of people (Gen. 13:16, 22:17) and a company or commonwealth of nations (Gen. 35:11).  The jews have never been either.  True Israel would be a race distinguished by their deeds “to keep the way of the Lord by doing righteousness and justice” Gen. 18:19.  The only race that has the Law written in their heart and mind (Heb. 10:6) is the only race to whom pertains the New Covenant (Heb. 8:8).  And it's not jews or the world of flunky half-breeds.  When was the last time you heard jews praising God, if ever?  This is the spirit of true Israel, “They sang with praise and thanksgiving to the Lord; For He is good; His faithful love to Israel endures forever. Then all the people gave a great shout of praise to the Lord because the foundation of the Lord's house had been laid” Ezra 3:11. 

The IsraeLIE state would not exist if it weren't for other people's money, which is ironic when you consider the only common wealth of jews is in the debt-usury system of the house of Rothschild's international banking and their economic strangulation of the world, bleeding other people dry... like?, like a vampire!  They fulfill the prophecy of “The alien who is among you shall rise above you higher and higher, but you will go down lower and lower.  He shall lend to you, but you will not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you will be the tail” Deut. 28:43-44.  Who do you think we owe the national debt to?  We owe it to the jews, to whom Congress gave the power to play with our money system; the Federal Reserve in 1913 took control of the American dollar and could magically create money out of thin air and then loan it to the US Government with interest; that's the Game being played.  The only thing we owe the jews is a furnace, according to the Word of God.  “The Son of man shall send His messengers, and they shall gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and them [the tares impersonating the wheat] which do iniquity.  And shall cast them into a furnace of fire; there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth” Mt. 13:41-42.  I usually don't take delight in other people's sufferings, but in the case of the despicable and incorrigibly wicked jew, “The people against whom the Lord hath indignation forever” (Mal. 1:4), I can make an exception.

In order to engage in spiritual warfare and knowing that we are on God's schedule, not ours, we must discern whether or not we are in sync with prophecy.  I used to think that divine judgment was set in concrete for a specific time period and it's not, unless otherwise specified such as the 'seven times punishment,' which lasted for 2,520 years.  So many times people are waiting on God to do something for them, while God is actually waiting on them to do something.   II Chronicles 7:14 is simply the proposition that if you follow instructions, God will heal your land.  When children disobey their parents, they are disciplined until they see the error of their ways, make the corrections in their behavior and then mature with their father's blessings.  That’s why prisons are unbiblical and not God's mode of punishment.  God wants us to take the log out of our own eye before we attempt to take the speck out of our brother's eye (Mt. 7:5).  As we defeat the old man of the flesh from within, we become worthy of the new spiritual man in Christ to battle the enemies outside of self (Mt. 16:24).  Paul tells us in II Cor. 10:6, “And we are ready to punish any disobedience, once your obedience has been confirmed.”  Our race was created to administer the Laws of God.  God does not just give authority to anyone who will abuse it; He will give it to our enemies if we try enforcing our own authority like jews, like the mongrelized government of the United States, like the bastardized churches.  But, it is not for blessing, it is chastisement.  Psalms 81:11-12, “But My people did not listen to My voice, And Israel did not obey Me.  So I gave them over to the stubbornness of their heart, to walk in their own devices.”  That's learning things the hard way right? 

God does not give His authority for ego gratification.  His authority has a purpose.  For the purposes of today's message, not just from me, but from Christian Identity as a whole, is to take the lead in ending the captivity of Mystery Babylon.  “Where there is no vision, the people perish” Prov. 29:18.  A vision is a plan with a purpose.  Our purpose is to tell our race that they are the true Israel, not jews.  Why?  What difference does it make?  You have to spell it out for some people, because they don't know they are slaves and freedom is only a fleeting abstraction.  We need to know who we are in God's plan for the ages so that we can be responsible enough to meet our divine calling.  “For many are called, but few are chosen” Mt. 22:14.  “Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble” II Peter 1:10.  God will call you.  Are you ready?        

Those who identify with the dead two-party system of Marxist dialectics, with debt/usury, and with a judaized church should feel a little nervous as everything they believe in is on very thin ice with the weight of sin heard cracking beneath their feet; their world view is attached to Mystery Babylon or democracy, the global economy and the ecumenical movement, not to mention the climate change hoax and a carbon tax that will make a lot of jews very rich, and more non-jews very poor.  They're going to have more to worry about than their precious plastic nativity scenes at Christmastime being taken down by ACLU thugs.  Churchianity has lead the way in misunderstanding prophecy and generating fear, not just with the Rapture theory, but racial reconciliation, denominationalism and antinomianism.  They fear they will not float off to heaven; that they will be raped and pillaged by hordes of marauding savages as can be seen in Europe right now; that their church is nothing but a scam and has very little to do with Jesus Christ; and they fear the lawlessness of anarchy creeping closer to their homes and families in an unprecedented police state.  Even the rulers and leaders of church and state are fearful of losing their ill-begotten authority with so many skeletons in their closets, yet most of them refuse to repent.  It's pretty hopeless unless you are Christian Identity, because we have the key to unlock the iron yoke of antichrist lies.  In fact, we're quite happy about the situation, because everything can be seen through the lens of prophecy and a race-specific Word of God.  The truth makes us free.

For example, Luke 21:25 is talking about us and them: “And there shall be signs in the sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth an affliction by the heathens, the sea and waves roaring in difficulty” CNT.  The jewish Masoretic text, like the KJV, translates this to sound like the nations are in distress, however William Fink's translation explains that the heathen or non-White nations are the source of the affliction.  To whom?  Luke uses the same symbolism as John in Rev. 12:1 i.e. the sun or governmental powers, the moon or religious powers and the twelve stars representing the twelve tribes of Israel or the White company of nations.  There will be signs in White nations inundated with non-White aliens, which is figuratively stated as “many waters” in Rev. 17:1 and defined in verse 15 as “peoples, and multitudes, and nations and tongues”: in other words, all the biped inhabitants of the earth regardless of race, who are “made drunk with the wine of her fornication”; indeed, the difficulties inherent with multiculturalism is in a state of turmoil and racial strife.  As the new wave of dark Islamic refugees flood into Europe and here, Luke tells us in verse 26 that there will be “Men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.”  The powers of governments, of the jew world order, will be shaken.  From Luke 21:28, 32, it seems undeniable that its immediate reference was to the destruction of Jerusalem, though its ultimate reference beyond doubt is to Christ's final coming.

The Son of Man coming in a cloudAnd then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory” Luke 21:27.  This is no ordinary cloud, but one and the same Shekinah Glory that accompanied Israel in the wilderness. “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them on the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night” Ex. 13:21.  Those who identify with their Kinsman Redeemer, the Savior who comes only for His chosen race Israel (Mt. 15:24) and to exterminate the serpentines (Mal. 4:3) will not be having heart Israel camp in the wildernessattacks, but rather, “When all these things begin to happen, stand tall and raise your heads, for your salvation is approaching!" (Luke 21:28).  I know this is hard for some people to visualize, but our ancient ancestors saw it and recorded it for our posterity.  And further, gospel writers wrote about His grand return to earth, our “King of kings” by way of prophecy.  That's why it's important to get ahead of the coming judgments if you want to spare yourself a lot of grief and regret.  We will see the actual arrival of God and He will see us either prepared or unprepared; either remorseful or relieved; either hot or cold or lukewarm.  

We depend on the Word; we live for the Promises; we thrive on the Spirit.  Matthew Henry says in his commentary of I Peter 4:12-19: “Even the best of men need to be warned against the worst of sins. There is no comfort in sufferings, when we bring them upon ourselves by our own sin and folly. A time of universal calamity was at hand, as foretold by our Saviour, Mt 24:9,10. And if such things befall in this life, how awful will the day of judgment be! It is true that the righteous are scarcely saved; even those who endeavour to walk uprightly in the ways of God. This does not mean that the purpose and performance of God are uncertain, but only the great difficulties and hard encounters in the way; that they go through so many temptations and tribulations, so many fightings without and fears within. Yet all outward difficulties would be as nothing, were it not for lusts and corruptions within. These are the worst clogs and troubles. And if the way of the righteous be so hard, then how hard shall be the end of the ungodly sinner, who walks in sin with delight, and thinks the righteous is a fool for all his pains! The only way to keep the soul well, is, to commit it to God by prayer, and patient perseverance in well-doing. He will overrule all to the final advantage of the believer.”

Here's something to consider, which Henry impresses upon: “Because it is time for judgment to begin, starting with the house of God.  And if it starts with us, what will be the fate of those who reject the good news of God?” I Peter 4:17.  Was Peter talking about his own race when he said “us'?  All of the 1st century Christians were White.  Universalists will try and tell you that the house of God is the church, but the church is the ecclesia and the ecclesia is 'the called out ones' and the called out are Israelites.  Even if they try to tell you the church is a place, the place of God, the Temple, has been replaced and the physical body of Israelites are now the temple of God, wherein the Holy Spirit dwells among His people (I Cor. 6:19).  However, not all White people are up to speed as to their identity nor their spiritual obligations behooving a 'called out' people with a divine destiny.   Prophecy is coming alive and being fulfilled with us experiencing judgment right now.  God said, “If My people,” not just any people, but the people whom the Bible says are His people, “shall humble themselves,” which is to say that we can be convicted of our sins and repent, then II Chron. 7:14 says, “He will hear... and forgive their sin.”  Can you understand that when the perfect wind begins to blow on an imperfect world, that “signifies the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain” Heb. 12:27.   What may billow in our eyes, fulfilling and filling the sails of time, racing indefinitely until the last shred of chaff is left behind and all that remains is to cross the line; our victory in the Kingdom, the old man dies.

"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with Me” Rev. 3:20Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with Me” Rev. 3:20.  I believe there's some people who really think God is no big deal, even if He were to knock on their front door, because their universe revolves around them.  It should be the other way around; we should be knocking on His door.  “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you; For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” Mt. 7:7-8.  Jesus said, “I am the door” John 10:9.  Jesus said, “No one comes to the Father except through Me” John 14:6.  Nobody sneaks into the house of God, into His divine presence, by trying to come in another way, through another door, because the alarm system for intruders is flawless.  OK, time for a little levity; “knock knock,” “Who's there?”  “It's Hershel Goldstein,” “Who in hell do you think you are?” “Oi vey, you mean this isn't Gehenna Boulevard?”  “Knock knock,” “Who's there?” “Made,” “Maid? as in maid service to clean up this mess?” “No, made m-a-d-e as in made in the image of God,” “Ahh, excellent, come on in My child, welcome to My Kingdom.” 

No goat is going to wander in through the gates of New Jerusalem when there is a sign that says “sheep only.”  The prophecy of “every knee shall bow” does not mean inclusion.  “Blessed are they washing their robes, that it shall be their right to the tree of life and they may enter by the gates into the city.  Outside are the dogs [non-Israelites] and sorcerers [drug pushers] and fornicators [race mixers] and murderers and idolaters and everyone who loves and practices lying” Rev. 22:14-15.  In plain English, White Christians who get their act together and clean house, help others and love God will get the door prize... the authority to enter the Kingdom of God.  Some people are still ignorant of what that means, so let us look at further prophecy which explains what's going on.  Romans 14:11-12 declares, “For it is written [Isaiah 45:23], As surely as I live, says the Lord, every knee will bow before Me; every tongue will confess to God.  So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God.”  God not only lives, but as Ferrar Fenton characterizes Him as “The Everliving,” who, because He could not swear by anything greater, swore by Himself, by His own Messianic life manifested. 

The apostle Paul proves the deity of Christ by way of prophecy i.e. “it is written” and then asserts that Isaiah is speaking of the Messiah.  This is an inconvenient truth that Paul bashers and jews would rather contort and distort, and in so doing, deny the bowing of every Israelite knee to Christ.  I used to have this word/picture in my mind that every biped on earth would fall prostrate on the Day of the Lord, in which there would be no doubt about what was happening... finally, the Second Coming!  But, from a Christian Identity perspective, every aborigine, primitive savage and subhuman creature would not have the brains or spirit to discern the clamorous heralding of a new age; and more likely would hide under a rock.  And for jews, Game Over.  Acts 1:10-11 assures us that the Ascension of Christ, witnessed by Israelites and two men nearby who were, no doubt, the same angels at the empty sepulchre, bright and fair to look upon (Mt. 28:3), clad in white garments, would be reversed and that the Lord would come back to earth in the very same manner.  This is, in essence, a racial declaration, that the Second Coming would be for the descendants of His followers, the whole house of Israel, and ushered in by messengers of the White race.  Is it just a coincidence that the Bible represents the God-fearing racially pure Adamic-Israelite-Caucasian people and angels as White?  The Lord ascended before those made in His image and will descend back to one and the same people. 

And at that time every White man, woman and child will bend the knee.  I don't think that means literally bowing at the knees, which would only be a physical gesture.  Today we see Muslims by the thousands, on their knees, head to ground, or orientals bowing a kung-fu salutation.  The term is figurative and suggests something more spiritual to acknowledge God.  It is the worst of unbelievers admitting that they were wrong; it is the best of believers vindicated, whom hallowed every word that proceeded from the mouth of God and now are rewarded by meeting the author of our faith.  Our faith is by persuasion, not coercion; God pulls all the stops to prove He is for real and loves us.  It will be our conscious and subconscious mind merging in full agreement with the will of God.  The expectations of the ecclesia is for righteousness and strength, in whom all the seed of Israel shall be glorified and shall glory (Is. 45:25).  It will be a mass confession (no, not catholic) that Jesus is Lord and has dominion over all the earth.  I think every tongue can denote the literal words produced from our mouth as well as every language from every Aryan nation.  There will be no other avenue than praise, knowing that you are about to be judged with justice and mercy far and above any verdict arrived at by black-robed magistrates.  There is nothing hidden from cradle to grave; smile, you've been recorded on God's candid camera, as naked as Adam and Eve and all the cover-ups that followed... and the change of hearts, the penitent sinner.  Did we embrace the blood on the Cross for the remission of sins in this mortal life; to approach the Divine Court with a clean slate?  We gladly stand before our Judge.  There can be no more unbelief.  This verse proves what was before-times asserted, that all must stand before the judgment seat of Christ.  We will subject ourselves to His sovereignty and His throne shall rule the earth.  I can't imagine anyone having an imagination to think otherwise under these circumstances. 

The evildoer must continue to do evil, and the one who is morally filthy must continue to be filthy. The one who is righteous must continue to act righteously, and the one who is holy must continue to be holy.  Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward [having a double nature of good or bad] is with Me, to give to each person according to what he has done” Rev. 22:11-12.  The reward is not eternal life (that's a gift, Romans 6:23), it's whether you're in the Kingdom or not.  “There will be a resurrection of both the just and the unjust” (Acts 24:15) within our race, but “the unjust shall not inherit the kingdom of God” I Cor. 6:9.  Is it important what we do in this life?  I'm not even sure what kind of inflection to use with a question like that.  What are the quintessential do's and don'ts of a White Christian?  The biggest “do” is to love the truth and the biggest “don't” is to believe a lie (II Thes. 2:10-11).  The truth is: redemption is exclusively by a kinsman (the Law is found at Lev. 25:48-49); Christ is the Kinsman Redeemer of Israel.  Our race went into bondage for our transgressions and only a kin or blood relative could purchase us out of the debt; take us out of the slave market.  Let me repeat the passage: “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body” I Cor. 6:19-20.  Who was Paul speaking about?  When Jesus became our Passover Lamb, He became the sacrifice for Israel.  "Remember these things, O Jacob, and Israel, for you are My servant; I have formed you, you are My servant, O Israel, you will not be forgotten by Me.  I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud and your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you” Isaiah 44:21-22.  There is absolutely no mention of racial aliens ever receiving a dime from God ever, because they were never given the Law and therefore never incurred a sin-debt in need of atonement.  The adoption, the glory, the covenants, receiving and administration of the Law, and the divine promises only pertained to the White race (Romans 9:4) and thus the resurrection from the grave never pertained to non-Israelites.  Quite another fate awaits them.

We are now in an election year, 2016, and there's a plethora of presidential wannabes hemorrhaging hot air colliding with frigid streams of stonewalling and coverups; such an orchestration and synchronization of corruption vs. corruption can only be seen as a perfect storm from God Himself.  What better way to eliminate the wicked than by pitting them against each other?  I may be off target, but I would put book on Hillary, being that she and King Ahab are the most corrupt of them all and will be elected by computer fraud (as if that's something new).  The evidence of rape, drug dealing, murder, race mixing and the witchcraft of bearing false witness is a well documented art form of the Clinton's Arkansas Mafia.  Just the kind of folks the Luciferian employers are looking for to serve their New World Order.  Sparks are already flying among the candidates in an orgy of political theater.  As I've said before, they are all actors, because they are pretending.  The hidden onion producing a tear in Obama's eye will not get an Academy Award.  Nor will it get our guns.  It's becoming self-evident that less people are feeding at the trough of mainstream media, being an active player in promulgating the grandiose illusion that God can't fix this, but the jewish saviors will.  Some people are wising up to the fact, that some people want to keep us dumbed down, but with the rise of increasing false flag operations there is a reciprocal diminishing psychological return to generate the hysteria and demand for WWIII.  These “wars and rumors of war” are only benefiting jews.  And if there aren't any domestic terrorists, the jews will create them or redefine what a terrorist is. 

For example, this last week (1-4-16) we've seen the drama unfolding in Oregon with ranchers being sent to prison for 5 years for a controlled fire burning 120 acres to prevent a forest fire spreading onto their grazing land, some of which burned BLM land (Bureau of Land Management, a corporation which is really no different than a Kentucky Fried Chicken franchise, having zero jurisdiction); whereas last year, so called government workers of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency, another corporation pretending to be a governmental entity, but in reality a punk protection racket) royally screwed up, spilling 3 million gallons of toxic water from an abandoned mine in Colorado, and nobody went to jail for gross criminal negligence.  Such disparities in the meting of justice and liberty for all has prompted militia groups to come to the rescue of the farmers.  Clive Bundy and his sons have joined the militia, who were in an armed standoff last year with the feds in Nevada.  It turns out, most of Bundy's fellow neighbors and ranchers have been forced to sell their land to the government.  The Bundy's refused to sell and are the last holdouts.  Why is the federal government so hellbent to swallow up great swaths of acreage.  Well, Sen. Harry Reid had adjoining properties and wanted the land, not just for expansion, but because the land is rich in natural resources i.e. natural gas, uranium and other rare minerals; and the deal was and is, a deal to sell it to the Chinese.  “And he which is filthy, let him be filthy still” Rev. 22:11.  The rich are not satiated until they are filthy rich.  But, we know, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” Mt. 19:24.  Which is why “the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and violent men take it by force” Mt. 11:12.  They want their own kingdom without God. 

The intent of God's plan for the ages is to reconcile all of His Creation.  But, nobody gets into the Kingdom until they come in through the Door, which is Christ.  They must mature in Christ, from children of God to sons of God in order to bring forth the fruits of the Holy Spirit to inherit the Kingdom.  We're told to “Be ye perfect,” which is not sinlessness, but cleansed of our sins in the blood of the Passover Lamb.  Only then is the journey complete and readied for the Marriage Supper of the Lamb; Israel reunited with her first love.  You know, I was originally going to write about “the mark of the beast,” Armageddon and 666 for today's message, but I was blown away by the ruach of God having a priority greater than mine.  Praise the Lord.  I now know why.  Those who fail to come to spiritual maturity in this life, will do so in an age to come, because this is the only way God can fulfill His oath, “That you should enter into covenant with the Lord your God, and into His oath, which the Lord your God makes with you this day: That He may establish you today for a people unto Himself, and that He may be unto you a God, as He has said unto you, and as He has sworn unto your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” Deut. 29:12-13.  None of us are allowed to be exempt from this national compact, which our ancestors at Sinai made binding.  That's why the import of today's message has the greatest consequences to reach the heart and mind of our people.  While the covenant of grace had special blessings belonging to it, at the same time it had curses in reserve for transgressors, the infliction of which would be as certain, as lasting and severe.  We should be in awe of such an awesome prospect.
