And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse, Which shall stand for an ensign of the people: To it shall the Gentiles seek: And his rest shall be glorious.
Song of Solomon 6:9
My dove, my undefiled is but one; she is the only one of her mother, she is the choice one of her that bare her. The daughters saw her, and blessed her; yea, the queens and the concubines, and they praised her.
I want people to understand the Doctrine or the old Landmark of The Church of God has not moved, though some have fought hard to move it or change it. It is still the old Landmark from the Rising of the Church in 1903 to this very day. You have to work hard to find the Word of God is still True. Youíre going to have to work hard to find its not. But it is the Truth and it is the only Truth.
I want to talk about the Landmark or the Teachings of the Church that we have known since 1903. We still have them! They are not changed in the Bible! Do not change them in your head, heart, and mind!
JEREMIAH 30:21óAnd their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the Lord.
And their Governor, not Ďthemí, their Governor shall proceed from the midst of them. Their Governor is Christ and He shall proceed from the midst of the Nobles. Now I donít want to read this for my own purpose or reason. I want you to read it so you donít think I am just telling you what I think. I want the Word to do the talking here.
I want you to know that A. J. Tomlinson was alone when he found The Church of God! He was alone! There was nobody with him! Nobody saw the Light of the Rising: he was alone. Out of the midst of the Nobles I will cause him, do you understand what HIM is? One! I will cause him to approach unto me, talking about A. J. Tomlinson!
For who is this, I believe everybody has forgotten who found the Church! Theyíre trying to mix up all kind of people, monks and everybody else. Somebody has lost sight of this Glorious Gospel given to the Nobles! And I will cause him to approach unto me. For who is this that has engaged his heart to approach unto me? A. J. Tomlinson engaged his heart. On his bed in W. Bryantís house one Saturday night he rose up Sunday morning and climbed the Mountain in time to meet the Ark of the Lord where the Brightness of His Rising still stands in that All Nations Altar! The very spot is still marked.
I will cause him to approach unto me, HIM, still him by his self. Their Nobles will proceed and their Governor will lead them. He will cause him to approach unto me, not everybody! And I, God will cause him to approach, come near unto me, come approach unto me, come to me, not everybody else but unto me. I caused him to draw near and approach unto me. He caused you to do that and He has made you a part of the Nobles!
He asked a question, who has approach unto Him? Who has? You have to ask yourself this question today, are they really in the Church or did they leave and go into the camp of the enemy? You have to ask yourself, hey, if you leave the Church why not say so? We have never known secrets before. Why do we want them now? If you leave why not say so? If you havenít left stand up for this Glorious Gospel!
JEREMIAH 30:22-24óAnd ye shall be my people, and I will be your God. Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it.
Itís not given to everybody. Pity Him not! Donít go around moaning and groaning if they donít want it. They shall be my people and I will be their God! He still is! He is going to be their God! The Church of God is not leaving the Body of Christ or the Word of God! Behold, the Whirlwind of the Lord. What is the whirlwind of the Lord? His Anger! The whirlwind of the Lord goeth forth with anger! You think the Lord is happy when people come in and tell you something against the old Landmark or the old Scripture or this old Doctrine that we have known for over a hundred years?
It stirs up His anger! Why pity people who do not choose to serve Him? Will not serve Him! Will not serve Him though they know all about the Doctrine. Yet they are determine to invade you or anyone they can with hypocrisy.
His anger is stirred up as a whirlwind; that means Christ is furious! Let me tell you one of the last signs youíre going to see before He returns for the Church! This is one of the very last sign; Heís not going to return until you see His anger! Heís not coming back until you, and everybody, Ďsay He can come any day,í not until Heís done! Heís going to stir up as a whirlwind and itís going to fall on the head of people. Have you ever stopped and noticed hospitals are overflowing with people with this ailment and that ailment?
But let me tell you something the whirlwind of the Lord, all these things are coming in these last days. It will fall on the head of the disobedient, people that once had a Vision, didnít want to keep it and let somebody turn them from this Glorious Gospel! It shall fall on the head with what? Pain! The Righteous suffered pain but everybody isnít Righteous! Jesus suffered pain but everybody wasnít Christ!
He is not going to return until He has performed the very intent of His heart! In the latter day, Ďhey, isnít this the Latter Day?í When do you think this is going to happen? This is the latter day! Heís not coming back for the Church in the last day until He has performed His anger! In the latter day you shall consider it. Now is time for you to consider. What you are doing for the Lord? What is your intent, to mislead and misguide people?
The anger of the Lord is going to come down on the head of the disobedient and it isnít the Early Church. He said itís going to be done in the Latter Day, this day. He is not returning until He has done it! Donít look for the Lord in the cloud, not yet!
Do you know why people donít like to give A. J. Tomlinson credit for the Light that God shined down upon him one Sunday morning? Nobody and there was all kind of birds sitting around, none of them had a Covenant, none of them! Do you know the very first thing A. J. Tomlinson did when he came down the Mountain to W. Bryantís house where they were holding Service? He took a Covenant and alone with him four or five more! The first thing was make a Covenant or marry Christ!
Christ is not the Church; He is the Husband of the Bride! The Church is the Bride! Somebody had to marry Him! That Sunday morning, June 13, 1903, he was the first with four or five others to take the Covenant of which the presiding Minister said, you Pastor it, he wasnít qualify, now itís the Church! These four or five people took the Covenant: now itís the Church! At that moment that very Sunday A. J. Tomlinson became the First Pastor of The Church of God! The Covenant was made and thus began the Rising of the Church. The fellow that was there said no, you pastor it; he had been filling in until God brought up the man that had drawn nearer unto him!
Now I want to read the Covenant, a little of it first. I want you to understand this, the Covenant reads such as this: Will you sincerely promise in the presence of God and these witnesses that you, and I want you to underline that You will accept this Bible, not NIV, not good news to modern man, and not some other, THIS Bible! Now, if you said yes and then change over and get you a different brand, you lied!
Iím going to tell you the plain Truth something went wrong! You said you would take This Bible as your rule of Faith! The New Testament, you rightly divide the New Testament. You will also practice the government, thatís the Commandments, not people! All people in the Church no matter if theyíre top or bottom is to obey the Government. The Scripture is the Government! It is on Christís shoulder, the Commandments are!
Now, if you look at it and you say, Ďyeah when I join the Church I took that Bible to be my rule of Faith but now I think I can understand good news to modern man. God didnít get modern! How about that? Youíre not going to find God in skating rinks, bowling alleys, or in beer joints. Thatís why He has the House of God! You want to find the Lord? Come to the House of God! To The House of God!
You have made the Covenant and yet you can say, Ďwell, I joined it because of this or I joined it because of that.í What did you do? It is time for somebody to get plain. I believe what ole Habakkuk said make it plain. Now read the Covenant: ďWill you sincerely promise in the presence of God and these witnesses that you will accept this Bible as the Word of God-believe and practice its teachings, rightly dividing-the New Testament as your rule of Faith and practice, government and discipline, and walk in the Light to the best of your knowledge and ability?Ē This is a Perpetual Covenant that shall not be forgotten.
Will you sincerely promise in the presence of God and these witnesses, you did it in front of witnesses just like A. J. and these others did that Sunday morning? They didnít do it behind a closet door. And will you practice government; will you submit to the man of God that is trying to teach you the Word: not just anything. There are all kinds of people in the Church today? You have to know which one is right and which one is wrong! Will you practice its Teachings rightly dividing-the New Testament? Do you know what Rightly Dividing means? You just donít come up with some form as many people are doing and have done. You turn on the TV and you have one preaching Salvation up and you have another preaching it down. You have one walking sideways, hey, there is but one-way to Heaven.
Government, listen to the people over you that are Right. As Paul said, follow me as I follow the Lord. But if I donít follow the Lord: how do I follow the Lord? With the Commandments, with the Teachings, thatís how you follow. You walk in the Light, walk in the Light to the best of your knowledge and ability! To the best of your knowledge and ability! This is not just mere words. It is a Perpetual Covenant that will not end or it will never be forgotten!
JEREMIAH 50:5-6óThey shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the Lord in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten. My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherd have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace.
Israel came and Judah came weeping and crying saying we will, we will marry the Lord! We will take this Perpetual Covenant that Shall Not be forgotten! They knew when they join the Body of Christ they would never forget. Neither will you! There is something about marring the Lord: something about marring your wife or husband no matter how many years youíve been divorced you will always remember you married her or you married him. You will always remember.
Once you make this everlasting Covenant you will never forget that one day you married the Lord! You joined The Church of God! Thereís something about the Covenant you will not forget according to Isaiah 62:5.
ISAIAH 62:5óFor as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee: and as the bridegroom rejoiceth over the bride, so shall thy God rejoice over thee.
For as a young man marrieth a virgin, so shall thy sons marry thee. The Lord as the Bridegroom rejoiceth over the Bride so shall thy God: this is thy God. You now become His daughter-in-law because you married His Son! God rejoices at your coming into the Body of Christ. It is a real wedding! Itís not something you take lightly! We have a Covenant similar, very closely to a young man marring a virgin. Now if a young man wants to marry a virgin so does Jesus Christ! He wants to marry a Pure, Clean, and Holy Wife! He doesnít want Her lying around with strangers. He wants Her for His self!
You think on that. God wants a Clean, Pure, and Holy People! Now that we have the rising of the Church and we have the Covenant, let me tell you about the Commission! Oh yes, Jesus Christ gave The Church of God a Commission. It goes this away:
MATTHEW 24:14óAnd this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
A. J. Tomlinson ran around his table saying weíll girdle the globe, we will girdle the globe even if it hair lip Lucifer! And this Gospel, not some other gospel, this Gospel shall be preached into all the world for a witness unto all Nations and then the End come! Whenever He has completed His promises He will come!
MARK 16:15óAnd he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel, one Gospel for the whole world. This is The Church of Godís Commission! Weíre committed to preach this Gospel to every creature. With the publication of the Doctrine God can send it to the bottom of the ocean or wherever there might be a computer. They can hear the very Words you hear around the world.
MARK 16:16óHe that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.
He and God are not making excuses for people who donít believe! He that believeth and is Baptized, you have to put some works into the hearing! He that believeth not donít get Baptized! If you donít believe it why go down to the creek? He that believeth not shall be damned! Do you know what that means? Hell hasnít gone out! Itís still a burning furnace! Itís still hot! You wonít see it till you open your eyes there, asks the rich man. He didnít see it until he opened his eyes there. You donít have to get Baptized if you donít want to. You donít have to make the Covenant if you donít want to. You donít have to do anything if you donít want to. The chose is yours!
He that believeth not shall be damn. Jesus said, now here is how Iím going to tell you how to see and how to know. The Church has always preached Signs Following Believers, we still do! Signs will follow the True Believer! It will also tell you who is Not a True believer!
MARK 16:17-18óAnd these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
ĎIn my name you will cast out devils.í You will! You do it in my name. The signs will follow the True Believers! In my name ye shall cast out Devils, no if I wonder about it. Jesus said I give you power over all Devils even ole black Lucifer. Even he has to get out of your way and there are ways to remove him.
In my name ye shall cast out Devils. Youíre going to believe in the Holy Ghost, the Holy Ghost! Are you afraid of Him being a ghost? He is only a Spirit. He is a Spirit! Worship Him! He came as a Spirit; He is the Holy Ghost. Thatís what the Word called Him! In my name ye shall speak with new Tongues! ĎWell, I just frankly tell you I donít believe in speaking,í hey, donít worry about going to Heaven. You wonít be found there. If you donít like speaking in Tongues you wonít be found there!
Why should He carry people up that donít believe Him? Youíre going to take up serpents. He didnít mean for you to run out in the woods, find one and say, Ďhey, look at me;í but if the occasion arises. I havenít handled any live ones but I sure have handled some spiritual ones! Some big ones too! Snakes donít always crawl on the ground. They come out of somebodyís mouth against this Gospel. You will know them by their words. They will condemn themselves! If you drink or eat any deadly things, ask a Blessing over it. If it isnít worth praying for it isnít worth eating. They shall lay hands. Put your hands on them, ye shall lay hands on the sick. You say, Ďwell we prayed for them, I was standing over there.í Somebody isnít carrying out the Word. Lay hands on them and they shall recover!
MATTHEW 28:19-20óGo ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always even unto the end of the world. Amen. The Commission is not over. ĎGo ye therefore and teach all Nations.í You have to Baptize them in the name of the Father! You have to Baptize them in the name of the Son! You have to Baptize them in the name of the Holy Ghost! Then you have to teach them to observe all things! The Church of God of Prophecy is the only Church on earth teaching All Things: whatsoever I have commanded You. When that Angel comes down and stands on land and sea and says, Ďthat there should be time no longer,í Jesus said, ĎI am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.í I will be with you always even till the end of the world!
Iíll be there. When He stops time and Heaven and Earth pass away; Iíll be there even till the end of the world. Heís not a Jesus that will go park somewhere and forget. When there is no Earth here and thereís no Heaven up there and everything is rolled up and gone away, Iíll be there. I will be with you even until the end of the world, I will be there for you in the Judgment and Iíll be there when I come back. Iíll be there when nothing is left. When there is a New Heaven and a new Earth Iíll be there. For the Righteous there is no end of being. For the wicked there is no end of burning. Hereís how you know where the Church is and hereís how to find it.
PSALMS 60:4óThou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.
Thatís why we have the Flag! The Devil canít stand it because itís True! The Devil canít stand it because itís His blood! The Devil cannot stand it because of its Purity and Royalty! In this Flag is His Crown! He is King!
What is it about The Church of God of Prophecy Flag? Everyone tries to get it and canít. They tried to duplicate it but they couldnít make it. They canít rest with the Spirit in it! Theyíd like to but they canít, so they go and make one similar. But the Spirit of Truth isnít in it! They canít stand the Church Flag because the Devil canít stand it!
That is His Star. The Wise Men came from afar following that Star. Jesus is the Star! It is His Brightness! It is His Power and His Scepter! It is His Blood! It is Purity, Royalty, and it is Truth! That is why The Church of God of Prophecy flies it! If you have stopped flying The Church of God of Prophecy Flag it seems to me you need to look around and find the Truth, if you still can. David wrote that God has given a Banner to them that Fear Him. If you Fear God you will NOT stop flying the Flag! I see people that no longer have the Flag on their car or their house! They donít even talk about it! The Flag is to be displayed to prove you still Fear God! This is not a manmade Flag! Let me tell you something, The Church of God of Prophecy Flag can fly in any Country. Do you know why? Because it is the Banner of Love, thatís what The Church of God of Prophecy is! It is the Banner of Love! Thatís what it is called! Let this Banner wave; let it go, let people see it! Come and unite with the Body of Christ! Come and take the Covenant and walk in the Light! Do you know why God gave the Flag to the Church? Let me help you to understand.
NUMBERS 2:2óEvery man of the children of Israel shall pitch by his own standard, with the ensign of their fatherís house: far off about the tabernacle of the congregation shall they pitch.
The Star of David has some markings of The Church of God of Prophecy Flag. It has Blue, thatís Truth! They are Godís first chosen people! Theyíre Godís Wife! Everywhere ole Moses carried that Flag they Won! Nobody could stand before them. Nobody! Nobody could defeat them! Nobody could stop them! Israel had some giants to go up against too. They had ole Og. He was about nine feet tall and slept on an iron bed but Israel walked over him and took his land! As long as they had that Star of David, Jesus was the Star of the Show then and He is the Star of the show today! Heís showing you the way! Wherever they carried Christ they won! Jesus was the Star!
When Moses smote the stone in the wilderness it stopped him from crossing into Canaan; that was Jesus! When you smite Christ you are stopped from going into Heaven. You are turned into Hell! Heís still the Star! When Israel came to be a Nation again in October 1948 they went back and got that old Flag from ancient days. The first thing they did was get their flag. The Star of David was for war. Wherever their Flag went they carried Christ with them. He was their King and Heís still is their Star! He will always be the Star!
Like the Flag of The Church of God of Prophecy, we have the Blue, we have the White, and we have the Truth. Why not be like Israel? Be glad when you display the Banner because it is True! Psalms 60:4 said; ĎThou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth,í not to everybody. When you look around today you donít find a whole lot of people displaying the Flag! No wonder they canít win anything. Israel still holds on to theirs and the True Church of God of Prophecy will still hold on to theirs! Theyíre going to display this Banner. Everybody is going to know its The Church of God of Prophecy!
The Devil doesnít like to have the Banner displayed because he cannot stand up to it! He has to get away from it! He is a liar and cannot stand the Truth! That Flag has Power in it! If you say it is just a rag, you donít know Jesus Christ! Thereís Power in the Blood! Thereís Power in the Truth! Itís not just a red rag. You need to be careful! There are many things today we still need to preach. Theyíre still in the ole Landmark to tell people who the Real Body of Christ is and to stand up for the Truth! Let me tell you one of them.
ISAIAH 42:8óI am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
I am the Lord; you donít have to wonder who I am. I am the Lord! Read that carefully to yourself. I am the Lord: that is my name! Everybody knows that Jesus Christ is the Lord. The Lord of Host is His name! The God of the whole Earth shall He be called! I am the Lord: that is my name! And my Glory will I not give another. What did He mean by that? You go and get a fifty thousand dollar cluster of diamonds and walk in the Church and say, ĎHey, look at my ring.í Did you see that ring sheís wearing? It covers her whole hand! Thatís taking the Glory of the Lord! You put on your makeup and cut your hair, all your glory is gone so you take His away.
My Glory will I not give to another. So what He is saying is, donít go put it on: neither my praises to graven images. Iím not going to have the Church praising graven images! Donít go and deck yourself out with crown jewels, rings necklaces or chains. Peter told us not to put on costly array just to glorify yourself! Glorify the Lord! Iím not giving my praises to graven images. He said it plain! How much plainer can He make it? The Church has taught this for over a hundred years! Whatís wrong with it now?
This is the old path, return to it! You say youíre not condemned? You may be too far from God to get condemned! May be that God doesnít condemn you because youíre no longer His. ĎBut I can wear it, you might not be able to but I can.í How many times have I heard that? I wear these britches because if I wear a dress Iíll get cold. What did the women do before? I remember when women wore dresses and if a girl put on blue jeans they called her a tomboy. But now they are all tomboys! What did women do before? They wore dresses!
What did men do before? They wore their clothes like men! Today you can wear clothes that tell everybody what you are. You donít have to say Iím this or Iím that. One look will tell me Iím getting out of your way. My praises will I not give to another, nether my Glory: not giving my Glory, put off costly array. Put off costly pearls and necklaces. You have no business wearing showy pants! Thatís in the Twenty-Nine Teachings! Someone told me we donít have them anymore. Itís still in the Bible! You can throw the Bible down if you want to but the Twenty-Nine Teachings are still intact! When do you hear anybody mention the Twenty-Nine Teachings these days? My Praises are mine!
1 CORINTHIANS 14:34-35óLet your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
Here seems to be another Teaching someone tried to make bite the dust. Itís not going to bite the dust! It is still against the Commandments to speak in Conference! Let your Women keep silent. He is talking about Conference. When the Church is in business let your women keep silent in the churches! It is not permitted unto them to speak! If you want to know everything ask your Husband, not at Church, not on the way home but at home! How much plainer and how much more do you need to understand!
This is a Bible Teaching, its not congregational from one Church to another. It is for the whole Body of Christ! Let your womenĒ do you know what silent means? A Deep Hush! Donít grunt, Hon, youíre not invited. Let your women keep silent in the Churches, in the Government, in the Conference of the Church. For it is not permitted unto you to speak. They are under Commandment to be Obedient.
Adam was not the first to sin, Eve was and that sticks to this very day. You know why Adam was kicked out of the Garden? His Wife had a big mouth. It is a Shame. Do you know what a shame is? Shame is a sin! I donít want the shame! For it is a shame for women to speak in the Church. GOD SAID; this isnít the Church saying, God said; the women shall not. Do you know what not means? Let your women keep silent in the Churches for it is not permitted unto them to speak. God said and if God is wrong then Iíll be wrong but if God is right youíre wrong but God is Right! If you want to know anything ask your husband; not halfway to the house; not in the Churchyard, ask your husband at home! You have to defend this Word of God or youíre no good to the Lord! Whether itís to one or whether itís to a hundred your Soul is at stake!
1 CORINTHIANS 14:36-38óWhat? Came the word of God out from you? Or came it unto you only? If any man think himself to be a prophet, or spiritual, let him acknowledge that the things that I write unto you are the commandments of the Lord. But if any man be ignorant, let him be ignorant.
What? Came the Word of God from you? What are you doing here? Did it come to you by yourself or did it come out from God? Do you have the right to change the Word? It came from God! If you think yourself to be a Prophet or a spiritualist then acknowledge this; the things that I write unto you are the Commandments!
Everything Paul said, I told you are the Commandments! It doesnít come on the shoulders of men; it comes on the shoulder of Christ! Now if you want to be ignorant, be ignorant, be ignorant all you want. If you donít want to believe it you donít have to.
People ask, ĎDo you think Jesus had saltine crackers and grape juice for His Last Supper? They laugh like youíre an idiot to talk about the Lordís Last Supper. We donít know what He ate. But let me tell you what he told you to eat! Donít worry about what He ate; you worry about what you eat! His Commandment was that Unleavened Bread was my Body! Youíre going to eat my flesh. To Him this Bread is His Body.
He knew that He wouldnít be here in the flesh. He gave them Bread, you eat it, you eat my flesh. You can make fun of any Scripture in the Bible, you donít have to believe any of it but Jesus said this Bread, this Unleavened Bread thatís my flesh! You eat this in remembrance of me; not somebody else, Me! This is the Fruit of the Vine, thatís grapes! Grape juice is made out of grapes. This is my blood out of the New Testament!
I know you canít drink this Book! He knew you could not drink this Book but He give you the Fruit of the Vine to drink as His Blood! Donít call everyone up to the Altar and hand them a little saltine cracker and a little glass of juice even if it is grape juice. There is only one way to have Communion; you have to tarry for one another. While one is being served, Tarry. Paul said I got that from the Lord. If you want supper eat it at home! This is the Lordís Supper!
Donít go around looking down at your nose asking and laughing about how you think the Lord ate saltine crackers and grape juice! He didnít say He did! He said this Unleavened Bread is my Body; itís broken for you and as often as you eat it you show my death and this Fruit of the Vine is my Blood and as often as you drink it you show His death! How much more do I need to add to ignorant people?
1 CORINTHIANS 11:26óFor as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lordís death till he come.
When Supper was ended He girded Himself. You may tell me, Ďwe donít do Feet washing anymore. Thatís not necessary and besides itís too cold.í Jesus washed everyoneís feet until He got to Simon. Simon said youíre not washing my feet. Lord said to him, you have no part with me. So now you take it for the way the Word said! If you canít eat the flesh and drink the Blood of the Lord and if youíre not going to wash the Saints feet you still have no part with Him! You still have no part with Him!
These are things that The Church of God of Prophecy must go back to Believing! You serve the Table! You pray for whoever is being served! You Tarry for one another in prayer! Do it the way the Lord did. Now things have gotten so modern everyone thinks God will just have to put up with it. God doesnít have to put up with anything! Heís already in Heaven! You have to get there!
