3 Things Christians Should Know about the Day of Atonement

By Bob Barney

Tonite starts the Day of Atonement (Sept 24th) at sunset and ends the following day (25th) at sunset.

#1 The Day of Atonement proves when the Day begins

(The following excerpt is from Joe Kovacs' book The Divine Secret -click on link to buy it!)
In the fall, in the seventh month, the Day of Atonement (called Yom Kippur in Hebrew) takes place, and the Bible specifically instructs:
"It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the ninth day of the month at evening, from evening to evening, you shall celebrate your sabbath." (Leviticus 23:32 NKJV)
Now, I can understand why many people rush to these two verses and assert something like, "See?! The words on the page show us that every single day starts in the evening!"
But do they actually say that? As a matter of fact, they don't. Let's be clear. These two verses do not say anything specifying when days in general begin or end. They are ambiguous at best. They are merely telling when to observe the festivals. The very fact that they mention evening here while other annual sabbaths such as Pentecost or the Feast of Tabernacles (or even typical calendar days) do not mention evening suggest they're an exception to the pattern of the morning day which had long been established since creation week!
Day of Atonement
Let's look at the Day of Atonement to help you understand what I mean. Here's what the Bible says about it in the Torah:
"Also the TENTH DAY of this seventh month shall be the Day of Atonement. It shall be a holy convocation for you; you shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire to the LORD.
"And you shall do no work on that same day, for it is the Day of Atonement, to make atonement for you before the LORD your God.
"For any person who is not afflicted in soul on that same day shall be cut off from his people.
"And any person who does any work on that same day, that person I will destroy from among his people.
"You shall do no manner of work; it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
"It shall be to you a sabbath of solemn rest, and you shall afflict your souls; on the NINTH DAY of the month AT EVENING, FROM EVENING TO EVENING, you shall celebrate your sabbath." (Leviticus 23:27-32 NKJV, emphasis added)
God places the Day of Atonement on the tenth day of the month, but interestingly, it's commanded to be observed from the ninth day of the month at sunset, to the following evening, the evening of the tenth. Many people think this is saying the ninth day of the month ends at sundown and that's when the tenth day of the month begins. But those words are simply not on the page. Again, the very fact that two different calendar days – the ninth and the tenth – are mentioned instead of one calendar day is more proof that there's a calendar-day change between the start and end of this Atonement festival.
To put this in modern perspective, if you're renting a car for a 24-hour period, you actually rent it over two calendar days. Let's say you need a rental car from 6 p.m. on the ninth day of the month until the following evening, 6 p.m. on the tenth day of the month. That's a 24-hour period, but there is a change in the calendar day from the ninth to the tenth of the month in the midst of the rental. In our modern age, the day change takes place at midnight. But in ancient Israel, the calendar-day change for the Day of Atonement would have been at sunrise! Again, there are TWO calendar days mentioned for this holy day. The ninth and the tenth! If every single day truly started at sunset in the evening, there would be absolutely no need to tell us to observe the day from evening to evening, since everyone would already be aware that ALL days began at sundown. If such were the case, Scripture would just say to observe it on the tenth of the month, without having to give any extra language about observing it from evening to evening. The reason the evening is mentioned for Atonement and not for the Feast of Tabernacles, for instance, is because Tabernacles is following the general rule of days beginning at sunrise, and Atonement is something out of the norm.
Now, why might God be instructing the Day of Atonement to be observed from evening to evening instead of morning to morning? Let's remember that God commands His people to afflict their souls, and this is understood to mean going without eating and drinking for 24 hours. It's a full day's worth of fasting. The New Testament even refers to this holy day as "the fast" in Acts 27:9. So, by having this holy day begin on the previous calendar day of the ninth day of the month at sundown, it means by the next morning, when people are awake, they would already be hungry. For this annual Sabbath, God actually wants people to have some sense of hunger, afflicting their souls, during the time they're awake! By commanding them to stop eating at sunset from the previous day is a guarantee they'd be afflicted with hunger pangs all through their waking hours on the tenth day. Otherwise, if the festival started at sunrise, people could have eaten all through the night and then not be quite as famished throughout that tenth day.
#2 Christ is in Atonement!  All of God's Holy Days represent Christ. Many Christians think atonement is only some Old Testament, Mosaic law thing, but in reality the Bible shows us that the ancients saw the need for atonement long before the time of Moses. When Adam and Eve committed the first sin, they hid from God because they were ashamed (Gn 3:8). God, by killing an animal, and using the skin to cover the naked bodies of the two, began the redemption of sin thru blood, that was finished with Christ Himself dying for our sins. CHRIST IS OUR ATONEMENT! While animals served as temporary sacrifices for our sins during the OT era, they could not ultimately atone for humans (Heb 4:10). We needed God Himself, who created everything to die for His creation to take away all sin!

Jesus Christ is both the subject and fulfillment of Isaiah's prophecy. Read Isaiah 53 for yourself.   It is NEVER READ by most Jews today!

#3.   The Day of Atonement will be observed in the millennium! Reading of Ezekiel 42-46 shows that during the millennium there will be all the principal Holy Days first seen in the Old Testament. The early church also followed this day. Acts 27:9 "Now when much time had been spent, and sailing was now dangerous because the Fast was already over, Paul advised them..." 

Although NOT REQUIRED, God is pleased when people follow this Holy Days that He will command you to follow when He returns!  How do you follow?  Simply eat no food, drink no water from 6PM tomorrow night (Sept 24th) until 6 PM the following Day.  Ask God's Blood to atone for your sins, love God and obey His every word, found in ALL Bible translations.


TONIGHT starts the Day of Atonement starts and IT IS FOR CHRISTIANS!

By Bob Barney

image from wp.production.patheos.comI know many Christians in the world understand that Jesus Christ, a Jew, followed the Old Testament (Mosaic) holidays.  Probably fewer comprehend that for nearly 100 years after the death and resurrection of Jesus, His followers still observed the same holy days.

One of these annual Holy Days is called in English "The Day of Atonement."  It is a very solemn 24-hour period of time over 2 calendar days, when we are to "deny ourselves."  This means to fast- or abstain from food and water for the 24-hour period.  The Day of Atonement does not occur on one day, as the Jews, and most of the observant Christians think it does!  Just a simple reading of scripture proves this. Many have read Leviticus 23:27 "The tenth day of this seventh month is the Day of Atonement. Hold a sacred assembly and deny yourselves and present a food offering to the LORD." and assume that it is. However, when one understands that God's day begins at dawn, the next few verses become very clear. "It is a day of sabbath rest for you, and you must deny yourselves. From the evening of the ninth day of the month until the following evening you are to observe your sabbath.

Clearly, if the day began in the evening, the writer would not say that the fast starts on the evening of the 9th!  It would have been, the evening of the 10th!  NOWHERE ARE EVENING DAYS JUSTIFIED IN YOUR BIBLE!  Any honest biblical scholar knows that the Bible shows the day beginning with LIGHT. "Let there be light"- and the first day began!

Clearing up the misconception of the true calendar, why do Christians observe this Holy Day? The answer is simple. They are following the example of Jesus Christ, His apostles, and the true Church of God of the first century! The church of the Apostles continued to observe the annual holy days established by God in the Old Testament, including the Day of Atonement for over a hundred years, until a great FALSE CHURCH in Rome changed it! They claimed the right to do so! "The Pope has the power to change times, to abrogate laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ." "The Pope has the authority and often exercised it, to dispense with the command of Christ." -Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. Cap. (The Pope can modify divine law.) Ferraris' Ecclesiastical Dictionary.  

image from www.cofac.orgOn the Day of Atonement, Christians humble themselves before God by fasting, remembering the awesome sacrifice of the Lamb of God, the Messiah, Jesus Christ, whose blood atoned for our sins. The Hebrew word for Atonement literally means “to cover over.” Our death penalty has been paid for us, and our sins have been buried, or “covered over.” In ancient times, the high priest enacted a fascinating, meaning-laden ritual of purification and atonement for his sins and the sins of the people. Study Leviticus the 16th chapter to understand all the types. Two goats were to be presented by the priest before God. One was "for the Eternal," and the other an Azazel, called a "scapegoat." The Azazel goat was to have all the sins of Israel symbolically placed upon its head, and then was to be led in the hands of a "fit man" who would not allow the goat to turn back into the distant wilderness, where it would be released. Contrary to popular belief, this goat represent Satan and NOT CHRIST!  God's gracious act of love toward us, is taking our sins (forgiving them through the blood of Christ-the first goat) and placing them on our scapegoat--- SATAN!  Yes, we blame Statn for our sins, but in reality, most of our sins are OUR SINS, not Satan's!  Satan just gets the punishment fore them, hence Satan is our scapegoat!

In the New Testament we read, "Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by His own blood He entered once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us..." (Hebrews 9:7-12).

Paul wrote, "Moreover He sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.

"And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

"It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

"For Christ is not entered into the holy place made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

"Nor yet that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year [on the Day of Atonement!] with blood of others...but now once in the end of the world [age] hath He appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself" (Hebrews 9:21-28).

image from www.ingodsimage.comAs you can see from Paul's example, to understand Christ's mission for us, we have to understand the Holy Days that Christ Himself created!  Christ is the LORD of the Old Testament, not God the Father!  These Holidays were made to show the way to HIS EARTHLY MISSION! Without these days, we cannot understand the gift of God!

We are to follow this day, like all of the Holy Days, not in remembrance of ancient Israel, but as a tribute to the God who freed our souls from death!

This is way we do the Fast CHEERFULLY and with a solemnity as well. 


Atonement 2022 starts Saturday Night on the 9th and ends Friday night on the 10th of the 7th Month in God's Holy Calendar


The Three Royal Lines of King David - One leads to Jesus - The Other to Britain

Many do not know their Bible and real history.  David's decedents are actually with us today! First and foremost, from the line of David is Jesus. He of course is in Heaven awaiting His own return. Then there are the other decedents of Mary, and also Joseph, and yet a third line is also prominent today; they are the royalty of Europe, and especially the British Monarch. Here is a handwritten graph that simply shows everything you need to know about the Monarchy and Christ. Yes, God is keeping an heir on David's throne, until Christ comes to take it!

Why the Monarchy Matters and what you will not be told about this in the media

Bob Barney

image from

Queen Elizabeth was laid to rest in her tomb today with the greatest of fanfare. Often, I hear people ask, “who cares?”, or “why is the monarchy in England really any news?”

The media simply has no clue as their level of ignorance is astounding; especially when it comes to the true God and the Bible. We here at The Plain Truth will tell you all about the Monarchy of Great Britain and it is fascinating!

Are you ready?

It is yet another example of Biblical prophecy being fulfilled and playing out in our lifetime! 

I often get emails and talk with people who do not believe in the Bible.  Many professing Christians even think that the Bible is not the literal word of God, but only man's impression of God.  I am often told that the Bible is filled with mistakes and prophecies that never come to pass however, today, the world has stopped to watch the burial of a Queen and most have no understanding at all about the significance of what they are watching.   

How in the dark they are!

 Here is something that may shock you...God predicted over 3,000 years ago that King David would always have a descendent on his throne! Present time, 3,000 years later, here we are literally witnessing this fact of the Bible that has been foretold; what a very special thing to behold. 

I encourage you to take the time to read up on this, study this topic of the British Monarchy and investigate deep into it as I promise all that you discover will not disappoint. You will see yet more proof of the accuracy of the Bible prophecies that we discuss here on The Plain Truth!

Let's dig in!

God had promised the Hebrew patriarch Abraham that through his descendants would come great nations and kings. The same promise was reaffirmed to his son Isaac and then to Isaac’s son Jacob. While Jacob slept on the ground in Canaan, he dreamt of a ladder extending to heaven with angels ascending and descending on it (Genesis 28:10-12).

King David, who wanted to build the Temple to the LORD was told by Nathan the Prophet that God did not want David to build the Temple because his hands were full of blood.  However, the LORD loved David very much.  I would declare as a side note, and with good reason, that Abraham, Jacob, Moses and David where the most favored by God.

   This is from The Plain Truth's Red-Letter Bible: 2Samuel 7. “Furthermore, the LORD declares that He will make a house for you—a dynasty of kings! 12 'For when you die and are buried with your ancestors, I will raise up one of your descendants, your own offspring, and I will make his kingdom strong. 13He is the one who will build a house—a temple—for my name. And I will secure his royal throne forever. 14 I will be his father, and he will be my son. If he sins, I will correct and discipline him with the rod, like any father would do. 15But my favor will not be taken from him as I took it from Saul, whom I removed from your sight. 16Your house and your kingdom will continue before meb for all time, and your throne will be secure forever.’”

Again, in (Psalm 89:3-4)"I have made a covenant with my chosen; I have sworn to David my servant, 'I will establish your seed forever,
and build up your throne to all generations'"


What the Royals know

Queen Victoria knew the fact that, “the British royal family was descended from King David.”  She also knew that she was sitting on the actual throne of God, (which is proven in the book The United States and Britain in Prophecy)—the very throne from which Christ is about to rule this Earth after He returns!

Yes, the throne that Charles will sit on will be the same throne that Christ will sit on when He returns!  The Bible says so! 

Sadly, most journalists and scholars are not interested in deeply understanding the truth about that throne. Most of them today are atheist anyway! On top of that, they are communist so much of the true history of that throne has been impugned, ridiculed and blotted out like in true communist fashion—except for a little remnant of believers which have been hidden from the population. 

The Stone of Destiny

If you look under the throne of the Monarchs of England, you will see a stone and it is called the Stone of Destiny. It is the actual stone that Jacob was laying on when he had his vision of the 'stairway to heaven.'

According to the account given in Genesis (Chapter 28:10-22), Jacob was fleeing from his elder twin brother Esau, whom he had tricked out of receiving their father Isaac's blessing of the first-born. On his flight, Jacob rested at a city called Luz and used a group of stones as a pillow.

10 And Jacob went out from Beersheba and went toward Haran.

11 And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep.

12 And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it.

13 And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the Lord God of Abraham your fore-father, and the God of Isaac your father: the land where you liest, to you will I give it, and to your seed

14 And your seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and you will spread throughout the world from the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in your seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed.

15 And, behold, I am with you and your offspring, and will bless you wherever you and your children go, and will bring you all back again into this land; for I will not leave you ever, until I have done that which I have spoken to you.

When Jacob awoke, He exclaimed: "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven!" The Great God of the universe, he realized, had been there with him where he slept.

Established Irish history indicates that the prophet Jeremiah visited Ireland several years after the fall of Jerusalem to Babylon. In his company were Tephi, heiress to the Davidic throne, and Baruch, the prophet’s personal assistant and scribe. He also brought several significant items to the Isles—including a stone the Irish Israelites subsequently named Lia-Fail or “Stone of Destiny.” According to E. Raymond Capt, this is all verified in the annals of Ireland.

“Many of the ancient Irish records, when making reference to an ‘eastern king’s daughter,’ also mention an old man; ‘a patriarch, a saint, a prophet,’ called ‘Ollam Fodhla,’ and his scribe-companion called ‘Simon Brug, Brach, Breack, Barech, Berach,’ as it is variously spelled [in the accounts]. Reportedly, they carried with them many ancient relics. Among these were a harp, an ark or chest, and a stone called, in Gaelic, ‘Lia-Fail’ (pronounced Leeah-Fail), meaning ‘Stone of Fate’ or ‘Hoary of Destiny.’ ”

Capt, along with numerous other researchers, proved the Lia-Fail is the same stone the patriarch Jacob anointed with oil at Bethel (Gen. 28:18-19). Capt writes: “In the ‘Chronicles of Eri’ by Milner, we find Eochaidh, the husband of Tea Tephi, associated with the stone Lia-Fail. The account is titled, ‘The Story of Lia-Fail,’ and states: ‘In the early days [of Israel’s sojourning] it [the stone] was carried about by priests on the march in the wilderness…Later, it was borne by the sea from east to west, to the extremity of the world [at] the sun’s going [a Roman expression referring to Britain]. Its bearers had resolved, at starting, to move on the face of the waters in search of their [Israelite] brethren. Shipwrecked on the coast of Ireland, they yet came safe with Lia-Fail…. Eochaidh sent a [wagon] for Lia-Fail, and he himself was placed thereon [to be crowned].”

As brought out in Chapter 12, Jeremiah was used by God to arrange a royal marriage between Tephi—the daughter of the last king of Judah—and Eochaidh, a Milesian-Zarahite prince of Ireland. This union not only healed the longstanding breach between the Pharez and Zarah lines of Judah, but it also preserved the line of Solomon and the Davidic throne.

But how is the “stone of destiny” related to maintaining the throne of David?

The stone was eventually housed in an area called Tara, at the “Fort of the Kings,” near Ulster. At Tara, every subsequent king of Ireland was crowned while seated (or standing) on Lia-Fail. John Fox writes that Irish history “reveals that a continuous succession of ancient Irish kings was crowned on Lia-Fail for 1083 years.”3 Around 503 AD, the Irish prince Fergus Mor McEre (Fergus the Great) was highly successful in his military efforts to annex parts of western Scotland. Fergus soon established a significant kingdom in Scotland and wanted to be officially recognized. As Capt notes, Fergus’ intention was to “style himself king of Scotland.” Understanding the significance of the “stone of destiny,” Fergus had Lia- Fail brought to Scotland for his coronation as king. The stone was never returned to Ireland but was kept in a sanctuary on the Isle of Iona. Like the Irish, every subsequent Scottish king was crowned on Lia-Fail (“Lea Gael” to the Scots). In 843 AD, the Scottish king Kenneth McAlpin moved the stone to Scone—hence, the stone’s later name “Stone of Scone.”

In 1296 AD—when King Edward I of England conquered the Scots and became “overlord” of Scotland—Lia-Fail was moved to Westminster Abbey in London. There, King Edward promptly had a special “coronation chair” built around the stone. The Scottish and English kingdoms were subsequently united in 1603 when James VI of Scotland was crowned at Westminster Abbey—becoming King James I of England.

As a result, every king or queen of Britain has since been crowned in that very chair, and all British monarchs are considered Scottish.

Ultimately, the relationship between the Irish, Scottish, and English royal lines is rather complex. However, it has been through these thrones that the Davidic royal line has been preserved. Moreover, it appears that the significance of the Davidic throne itself centers on the meaning behind the “Stone of Destiny.”

Here is an announcement from the BBC just seven days ago!

Stone of Destiny to return to Westminster Abbey for coronation

An ancient symbolic stone is to be moved from Edinburgh Castle to London for the King's coronation.

The Stone of Destiny, which was used in the inauguration of Scottish kings for centuries, was seized by King Edward I and built into a throne at Westminster Abbey in 1296.

Also known as the Stone of Scone, it was returned to Scotland in 1996.

The Queen sat above the stone when she was crowned in 1953 and it will feature in the ceremony for her son.

The coronation date has not yet been set.

Historic Environment Scotland (HES), which manages Edinburgh Castle, announced the stone would be used in King Charles III's coronation before being returned to the castle's Crown Room.

HE said: "The stone will only leave Scotland again for a coronation in Westminster Abbey."

The Stone of Destiny, described as coarse-grained, pinkish buff sandstone, is seen as a historic symbol of Scotland's monarchy.

Having been removed from Scotland by King of England Edward I in the 13th Century, the stone was eventually returned to the Scots on St Andrew's Day in 1996. By this point, the Crowns of Scotland and England had been merged for nearly 400 years.

Again, the Bible is proving its accuracy every day, and most don't realize it, because we have been blinded by Satan's world of deception .

A wise man once wrote, "they long to find fault with her (the Bible) teachings, but really she makes no mistakes.”

In conclusion, these are God’s truths jumping right out at you in todays news which is where the heart of The Plain Truth is at. We want to encourage our readership to take a second look at what is going on in the world today as you may just very well see scripture jumping right out at you! All of this helps us get to know the God that created each and everyone of us and reveals the truth about our true identity in Him!

Hosea - Prophecies for America and Britain TODAY

image from

Hosea Chapter 4 

Understanding the prophecy in modern day time

Part One

Although it is not expressly stated in the Book of Hosea, it is apparent from the level of detail and familiarity focused on northern geography, that Hosea conducted his prophetic ministries in the Northern Israel (Samaria) of which he was a native.

In Hosea 1:1, the prophet identified the kings that ruled during his prophetic ministry. The first four—Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah—reigned over the southern kingdom of Judah from 790 BC to 686 BC, while Jeroboam II ruled the northern kingdom of Israel from 782 BC to 753 BC. This indicates that Hosea lived in the middle to late eighth century BC (755–715 BC), making him a contemporary of the prophets Isaiah and Micah. Hosea is often seen as a "prophet of doom", but underneath his message of destruction is a promise of restoration. The Talmud claims that he was the greatest prophet of his generation.  The period of Hosea's ministry extended to some sixty years, and he was the only prophet of Israel of his time who left any written prophecy.

The identity of Israel (Samaria) is almost unknown today, but you can easily prove in our modern day who the nations of the world descended from! Read our study showing how England, America and many Western European countries are LOST ISRAEL.  Almost every time in prophecy when we read that something will happen to Israel in the End Days, it actually means it will happen to the USA, Canada, Britain and parts of Western Europe. Israel in end time prophecy is not the Jewish nation of Israel today!  The nation we call "Israel" is in fact named JUDAH in the Bible.  Jews do not have the claim to the name Israel!  Eleven of the twelve tribes of Israel ARE NOT JEWS!   Are you aware that the first time the word "Jew" is used in the Bible? This might really surprise you. The Bible states that the Jews are in fact at war with the House of Israel! 

When we read the Bible, which was written about 2,000-3,000 years ago, often times we do not have a sense of how it relates to what is going on today. This is especially the case when reading End Time prophecy as to which nations are going to be involved. We read about Israel of course as well as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Ethiopia and a list of unrecognizable nations and names yet what about nations such as China, Russia, Germany, Italy, England or the United States? Why aren't they mentioned in our Bible?  How can it be, if the Bible is the word of God, that he didn't know that these modern nations would exist? After all, if God knows the future, didn't God know about the United States or Europe or China? How can we trust prophecy or understand it when most of the time the scenario just doesn't fit what we know about the world today? Is there going to be another Assyrian Empire as the Bible claims? Does Assyria even exist today? Is Greece going to be the most powerful nation under another Alexander the Great as the book of Daniel suggests? It doesn't seem very likely to me, and I am sure not to most of you either. Are we indeed living in the end times and how can we know what to look for and what today's news means? Will the world as we know it really ever end, as Jesus foretold?

Believe it or not, the Bible is as current and relevant today as the day when it was first written. The fact is that it is even more relevant today because much of what was predicted by the prophets was meant for today and beyond and not for the time these men were living! The hard-to-pronounce nations mentioned in the pages of prophecy written so long ago still exist and you can prove it to yourself! God has given us the tools to understand His predictions for our world and has had uncanny accuracy that no one could ever duplicate without divine influence.

God has rightly predicted:

~ The fall of Babylon

~ The fall of Assyria

~ The fall of Alexander

~ The fall of Rome 7 times (it has now fallen five or six times depending on what expert you believe!)

~ The Pope

~ Radiation poisoning

~ Chernobyl by name!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

~ Global man-made pollution

~ The Muslim religion and their fight with Europe known as The Crusades and the final yet to come conflict between these two powerful regions

~ The rise of England and the USA to be two most powerful nations ever to exist on this planet!

~ That England would have a monarchy and that monarchy would claim to be David's descendants. That they would sit on his literal            throne over the same rock that David himself was coronated over.

~ That the number 13 would be important to the United States of America and that our form of government would be by election and            not by a divine monarchy from the line of David.

To understand the Book of Hosea in today's world takes some knowledge of who he was, when he lived and when exactly he is talking about, and believe it or not, most of what he wrote was NOT FOR HIS DAY!

The Study of HOSEA:

Hosea 1- 3: Hosea is ordered by God to marry a whore, who will not be faithful to him. To God, praying to false pagan deities is akin to human sexual adultery.  As we are torn apart to find out that our spouse has been unfaithful, God feels the same torment when His people are unfaithful to Him! Adultery symbolizes pagan worship in the Bible. Both Israel (America, England and parts of Western Europe) and Judah (modern day Jewish nation) have worshipped pagan deities throughout history and have suffered for it.

Hosea 4: a translation to better understand Bible prophecy:

Hosea 4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

The Lord Is Angry Against the United States, Great Britain and much of Western Europe

 People of America, listen to the Jesus' message to you. Jesus, the Lord God Almighty has filed a lawsuit against you listing the following charges: “The people in this land are not honest or loyal. They don’t really know God the Father or Me. They are always cursing, lying, killing, stealing, and committing adultery. They murder one person after another. So the country is like someone crying for the dead, and all of its people are weak. Even the animals of the field, the birds of the sky, and the fish in the sea are dying because of the curse upon you.  

 4 “Don’t point your finger at someone else and try to pass the blame to him! Look, priest, I am pointing my finger at you.

5  As a sentence for your crimes, you, the priests and ministers of My people will stumble in broad daylight as well as in the night, and so will your false ‘prophets’ too; and I will destroy the land.

“My people are destroyed because they have no knowledge. You so-called Holy ministers have refused to learn, so I will refuse to let you be priests for Me. You have forgotten the Ten Commandments, so I will forget your children. They became proud. They sinned more and more against me, so I will change their honor to shame.

8 “The priests rejoice in the sins of the people; they lap it up and lick their lips for more!

So the priests are no different from the people. I will punish them for the things they did. I will pay them back for the wrong things they did. 10 They will eat, but they will not be satisfied. They will commit sexual sins, but they will not have babies. This is because they left the Lord and became like prostitutes.

11 “Sexual sins, strong drink, and new wine ruin a person’s ability to think straight.12 My people are asking pieces of wood for advice. They think that idols, pieces of wood, or some horoscope will answer them! They have chased after those false gods like prostitutes and have left their own God. 13 They make sacrifices to other gods and worship money rather than Me. Your daughters will become prostitutes, and your daughters-in-law's whores for free.

14 “I cannot blame your daughters or your daughters-in-law for doing this, because your men go and have sex with the same whores and pay them. This is how foolish people destroy themselves.

The Shameful Sins of America and Great Britain who carry the name of Jacob or Israel

15 “Israel, just because you act like a prostitute doesn’t mean that Jews should feel guilty too. People, don’t use the Lord’s name to make promises. Don’t say, ‘As the Lord lives …!’ 16 The Lord has given many things to you. He is like a shepherd who takes his sheep to a large field with plenty of grass. But you are stubborn, like a young cow that runs away again and again.

17 “The United States has joined Their politicians and so-called holy leaders and rejoice in sin; they lap it up and lick their lips for more! 18. Therefore, a mighty wind shall sweep them away; and they shall die in shame because they have forgotten me and worshipped gods of money and greed.

My friends, believe it or not, THIS IS the message of Hosea.

Hosea is a prophecy for TODAY- for America, the England Commonwealth of Nations, Ireland, France, Denmark and Scandinavia!  It has never been fulfilled.

 In 'Part Two' I will show you why with a continued study of Hosea using Chapters 5-7.

In 'Part Three', we will study the Hosea Chapters 8-10. 'Part Four, 11-12. And finally, Part Five, the study of Chapter 15.

Safe Zones in the Disaster | Best Estimations ~ By Suspicious 0bservers

The Plain Truth is we are facing the potential of a cataclysmic celestial event in the next two years with our star. Solar activity is being closely monitored and is important to learn about as the sun supports all life on earth!

Bob Barney has a gripping commentary on this topic and if life is about to change forever; here. 


Below is Ben Davidson of Suspicious 0bservers and his popular video on Safe Zones for the ensuing solar disaster that will change life as we know it.

Vegetarian's Do Kill Animals Too! Why We Do - What We Do!

VegetarianismVegetarianism (Photo credit: Marius!!)

By Bob Barney

    I have found that vegetarians give one common reason for giving up meat and that is the conviction that animals have the right to life just as we humans do. Even though they have a sincere belief in preserving animal life, most do not realize that this belief is based on a liberal cause. Unfortunately, this is a cause based on a lack of understanding of how food is produced or for that matter, how anything is produced.  We cannot deny it, we live in a ready-made world. We go to work from 9-5 and we buy everything we need from a store that offers products with origins from hundreds if not thousands of miles away.  Most of us today have no clue as to what it takes to grow an apple, or to grow wheat or corn and yes, to even grow beef! We don't know how or where our clothes are made and by what sort of forced labor entity as we are blissfully ignorant of the world around us.  You see, one must be ignorant of reality in order to be a liberal. You will never find a liberal on a deserted island or living amongst natives in some wilderness setting. Liberals don't live very long in such environments once their beloved “nature” takes control of their destinies.

Being a vegetarian means that you are not responsible for the killing of any animal, right?

    The Plain Truth is that not one single souls' hand is free from the blood of animals and that includes vegetarians!   Did you know that millions of animals are killed every year to prepare the land for growing some of the very crops that are the staples of a vegetarian diet? Soybean, corn, and barley just to name a few as well as a whole host of 'organic' foods.  The animals killed in many cases are mice, moles, rabbits and more. They lose their habitat and are run over by the very tractors that make a way for farming. They may be unintended victims of agriculture, but they are still victims in the end.  Are their lives any less sacred than say, a goat? Here is an honest question that deserves an honest answer, "What makes it acceptable to kill the animals of the field so that we can eat veggies but makes it not acceptable to kill venison, fish, chickens or cows?"  The cold hard facts are that any disruption of the land whether it be to farm or to build homes and malls, reduces the amount of land left for other animals and results in their untimely demise.

    Any vegetarian that consumes dairy, eggs and wears woolen garments may think that they aren't contributing to the slaughtering of animals for their goods and that may be true in theory, but the fact is, they are!  All modern farmers trying to eke out a living providing cheap food are not just going to let their animals die of old age; they kill them at whatever point the farm considers to be the most profit-maximizing. For dairy cows, that’s usually at age 3-5, out of a natural 20–25-year lifespan. For egg-laying hens, it’s usually after one or two laying cycles. And since the males of the laying species are useless to the egg farmer, they’re killed right after they hatch; these are the cold hard facts.

English: Dairy heifers The milking dairy cows ...English: Dairy heifers The milking dairy cows are in for the winter now, but as the weather is fair the heifers (young females) are still outside. When they reach 350 / 400kg in weight they will put in calf and 9 months later will begin their life as a dairy cow. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A vegetarian diet must kill far fewer animals than an omnivore diet, right?

    Not always! Here is an example:  Eggs. While you only need to kill one single cow to get about 450 pounds (405,000 calories) worth of meat, you’d need to kill about 20 chickens to get enough eggs to match that number of calories. So, if you’re a vegetarian who eats a lot of omelets, you’re likely responsible for more animal deaths than someone who chows down on burgers and steaks but doesn’t like eggs! I bet you never thought of that, did you?

Here is a link for you to look at and find some more information: 

    I’ve scrounged up data on the typical amount of meat, eggs, and dairy that we get out of a modern farm animal and combined it with data on the calorie counts of those foods. Doing this has allowed me to calculate the number of calories of food that we get out of each type of animal, or more to the point, the “lives-per-calorie” statistic for each food. The results are below, with the foods ordered from “kills the fewest animals per calorie” to “kills the most animals per calorie.” All numbers are approximate, of course, but they’re from as recent and as reliable a source as I could find. (Detailed citations are at the end of this post).

The yield for a laying hen over its lifetime is actually about 550 eggs, but I’ve divided it by two because approximately one male chick is killed for each laying hen.

The lives-per-calories cost of eggs is so many times higher than that of beef that even a small amount of eggs outweighs the life cost of a larger amount of beef. Let’s say you’re a vegetarian and you go out to lunch with your omnivorous friend, where he orders a burger, and you order an egg-salad sandwich. The two eggs in your sandwich are only 150 calories, compared to the 300 calories in his beef patty, but the eggs cost almost 9 times as much life as the beef.

 In Summary 

    Of course, as I said earlier, these calculations are only concerned with the question of the taking of animals’ lives and they are not taking into account the amount of suffering the animals unfortunately experience. Such a statistic would change the calculations somewhat, but I suspect the overall verdict would remain similar if you were looking at suffering-per-calorie – or, if anything, things would look even grimmer for egg-lovers. Laying hens arguably lead some of the most miserable lives out of all livestock, spending all their time crammed into cages with less space than half a piece of paper, having their beaks cut off, and being starved to induce molting. (Although the male chicks would count less if you’re looking at suffering-per-calorie, since their lives are so short.)

    These calculations also don’t take into account impact on the environment. Raising beef is pretty clearly the worst industry in terms of things like producing greenhouse gasses, breeding antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and requiring huge amounts of farmland just to feed the cattle. Right there may be a good case for choosing eggs over beef in the sense of minimizing your environmental impact, but that doesn’t change the fact that you’d be making a tradeoff of killing more animals to hurt the environment less.


    According to the USDA, the average dairy cow produced 21,000 lbs. of milk last year, and according to several sources, the average dairy cow is culled from the herd after about 3 years, so I multiplied 21,000*3 to get the average amount of milk produced over the lifetime of a dairy cow. It takes about 1 gallon of milk to produce 1 lb of cheese, and there are about 8.5 lbs. of milk per gallon, so I divided 63,000 lbs by 8.5 to get the 7,400 lbs. of cheese figure.

    The figures on beef and pork come from the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture~
The average number of eggs per laying hen per year comes from the USDA, and I multiplied by two because that’s the most common figure I found for the number of laying cycles. The average weight of a broiler chicken I got from the USDA’s annual Poultry Slaughter publication.

    And by the way, don't harmful insects have the same right to life as humans? Are most vegetarians willing to eat apples with worms in them and if they are, what do they do with that live worm when they find it?

    And if insect lives are as valuable as a human, how about bacteria. Bacteria is animal life. In order for vegetarians to digest their wholesome organic grains and grasses, trillions, of bacteria get killed in the process!  So, you better stop taking those pro-biotics, because you are brutally slaughtering animal life.

One last point

    Iron.  Most are unaware, (especially vegetarians that focus on plant eating), that the iron found in spinach often comes from the fertilizer made up of, you guessed it ~ BLOOD from cows. This is an organic way to get the iron back in to depleted dirt!

    Seriously, it's about time we stop falling for the liberal lies we were raised on. Both conservatives and liberals have been fed a bunch of them and we need to start using the brain God gave us and start thinking about why we do what we do!

Geomagnetic Effects on Earth, Malfunctions, Upticks in Explosions and Outages (Video)

The Plain Truth is we are on the verge of a cataclysmic celestial event within the next two years! The western world and life as we know it may be altered and this is not a Chicken Little type of a warning; it is in fact a warning from NASA and many of the top scientists of the world! This warning fulfills God's prophecies concerning the destruction of our nation by both natural and man-made events. 

This recent video by Ben Davidson of Suspicious 0bservers proves how we are in an age where we can monitor solar storms and developing and earth facing CME's to predict many events.  This stellar igniting data is being used to predict earthquakes and so much more! Watch and learn whilst you see the amazing footage of our star and how the suns outbursts translate into geomagnetic effects here on earth in the last few days!

Nuclear war between the US and Russia would cause a global famine and kill more than 5 BILLION people

Foreword by Bob Barney:

The Doomsday Clock was created by the Bulletin, an independent non-profit organization run by some of the world's most eminent scientists

God's Word hints that a nuclear holocaust will be the last world war for those of us remaining on earth

 In Matthew 24, Jesus warns about a time of tribulation, especially for pregnant women (radiation fallout is implied), and also nursing mothers. In Revelation 9:14, we read that upward of a billion Muslims will be killed in a single day. And another 2 to 4 billion in a year!

 The sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice speaking from the four horns of the golden altar that stands before the throne of God, 14 saying to the sixth angel, “Release the four mighty demons held bound at the great River Euphrates.” 15 They had been kept in readiness for that year and month and day and hour, and now they were turned loose to kill a third of all mankind. 16 They led an army of 200,000,000 warriors—I heard an announcement of how many there were.

That is only possible with something like atomic warfare.

As you can see, today's story is quite sobering, especially when you have moronic leaders like Joe Biden and his ilk doing anything and everything they can to start a war with Russia and China. These targeted countries have an abundance of atomic weapons! We have never been closer to a worldwide catastrophe than we are today!  Our fate lies in making sure by any means necessary, that we put the proper God-fearing leaders in charge or else these prophesied events are sure to happen!


Today's Story ~

What Life Would be Like in the Event of a Nuclear War.

A nuclear war between Russia and the US would trigger a global famine that would wipe out almost two-thirds of the world's population, a new study suggests.

'More than five billion people would die of hunger during the fallout from a full-scale conflict', researchers say, and with computer simulations to show that firestorms would release soot into the upper atmosphere and block out the sun.

This would in turn spark crop failure across the world. 

Lead author Professor Lili Xia, of Rutgers University in New Jersey, said: 'The data tells us one thing. We must prevent a nuclear war from ever happening.'

The modelling shines a fresh light on what would happen under six different war scenarios. This includes five smaller India and Pakistan conflicts as well as a large USA/Russia war. 

Such threat has been brought to the forefront following Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

Common Bible Misconceptions - "I didn't know that was in the Bible!"

Welcome to A NEW SERIES by Bob Barney

Bible misconceptionsIf anything brings more negative attention than a person reading the Bible in public, I am stumped as to what it is!  You can have Jews wearing beanies in public who may get some odd looks but for the most part, people will hardly notice.  Even Muslim garb on a woman these days will not receive the glances that were once given.  But if you are reading a Bible in public, on an airplane next to a stranger or in a street corner cafe, watch out. For some reason, most Americans and I would say even a good portion of the western world do find Bible readers a little strange and even can be deemed as 'religious nuts'.

At the heart of this series, we will focus on Biblical misconceptions that the average person may hold onto...whether they are a Christian or not.  You see, the largest selling book of all time is also the least read book ever sold!  Most view the Bible as passe or just as book full of ancient mythological stories. The reason for this is because they think they know what is written this great book.  The Plain Truth is that most have a very limited understanding of what they are really reading!

I find when explaining some of the passages in the Bible, people are totally shocked to know the Bible contains stories on sex, murder, thievery and everyday worries that we all face.  Some may even see and believe things in scripture that aren't really even in there! So here I present to you the format of this series. We will feature a scripture that has a common misconception and back up the Truth with God's Holy Word. 

Today's Featured Scripture:

And God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth."

The Misconception:  

Let me say first, the view I will be presenting is not mine.  If you happen to take issue with it, then I suggest you take that to God, the actual author of the Bible!

The misconception is: That God is monotheistic when He really is polytheistic.

The Holy Bible 🤍 In Its Original Order - God's Words in RED: Part 1 The Law (The Plain Truth's Red-Letter Bible) – April 5, 2018


Bob Barney

First published two year's ago- It's a timely reminder of one possible reason why governments are creating population destroying flus and viruses 

At one time, the elite at least attempted to conceal their boundless enthusiasm for population control from the general public, but now they aren’t even trying to hide it anymore. 

On Tuesday, an alarming new study that advocates global population control as one of the solutions to the “climate emergency” that we are facing was published in the journal BioScience.  This document has already been signed by 11,258 scientists from 153 different countries, and it openly calls for a reduction in the human population of our planet.  This has always been the endgame for the climate change cult, but now a big push is being made to make the public believe that there is a “scientific consensus” that this is necessary.

You can find a summary of the report here, and I would very much encourage you to read it, because it is essentially a blueprint for where the elite intend to take humanity in the years ahead.

Watch the Movie "Executive Action" from 45 years ago explains just how the Deep State and the liberal left are doing today.  Bill Gates, a large proponent of population control basically has said the same thing!

WEF Adviser Yuval Harari: ‘We Just Don’t Need the Vast Majority of the Population’ in Today’s World


By Bob Barney - The Plain Truth

SabbathThere are many phrases in the bible that contain the word “Remember.” To remember something is to imprint an image, phrase, event or memory to our brains. Hopefully we will always remember our loved ones, our favorite vacations, and especially our God! God tells us that we are to remember Them (Father and Son) always and to remember God's Laws and instructions. God also promises us that They, (Father and Son), will remember all the promises made to us! God will remember each one of us... A wonderful thought...


REMEMBER – NKJV (New King James Version) (God's words in RED)

God remembered Noah, and every living thing, and all the animals that were with him in the ark.

 and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh.

 And Moses said to the people: “Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt

Exodus 20:8

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

 And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth

 To such as keep His covenant, And to those who rememberHis commandments to do them.

 remember Your name in the night, O Lord, And I keep Your law.

 Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth, Before the difficult days come, And the years draw near when you say, “I have no pleasure in them”:

 I, even I, am He who blots out your transgressions for My own sake; And I will not remember your sins.

 Remember the former things of old, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me,

 No more shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says theLord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”

 Remember the Law of Moses, My servant, Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel, With the statutes and judgments.

 Then he (one of the thieves on the cross) said to Jesus, “Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom.”

As we can see from Scripture. the word remember should be important to all of us.

Let me walk you through a special guided imagery:

Allow your mind to enter a dream state. Dream of Heaven and the entire Universe and Earth. We know that if we believe what God says, the EARTH is the CENTER of the created physical Universe just as Heaven is the center of all Creation. In Heaven, the CENTER is the Throne of The Father God and Jesus Christ. 

On Earth, the center of Earth is the ancient land known as Israel which is located in Palestine. To God, Israel is the center of this planet and of all creation, aside from Heaven. That's why every direction given in the Bible centers from Israel! People from the North – are peoples North of Palestine. People of the South are those BELOW or south of Israel. The Western Coastlands are lands WEST in the western oceans FROM Palestine which are England and the Americas.

Now zoom in a bit...see that the center of Israel is Jerusalem! Jerusalem is the eternal city and the only one promised to appear in the world tomorrow.

Zoom in even more! In the center of Jerusalem is God's Holy Temple, which is now destroyed, but a PROMISE has been etched in scripture for it to be rebuilt before the return of Christ.  From this Temple, Christ will rule!

In the center of the Temple is the Holy of Holies where the Ark of the Covenant was placed. On the top of this Ark is a SEAT. It is the very seat that Christ sat on while the Temple stood. Christ's Spiritual Presence emitted from this seat, and you can be sure it will again! 

Inside the Ark in the center are the two tablets of THE TEN COMMANDMENTS! The center of all creation was and is the Ten Commandments. You may know them as that awful Law that many try to tell you Christ abolished; nothing could be further from the truth!

On the Ten Commandments are Ten Laws.

The 4th Commandment Begins with this word:


 Yes we are to remember the most spiritual of the Commandments, the Center of the world.

Remember the sabbath Day and Keep it Holy!


Are you keeping this day holy?

The Liberty Valance Factor

One of the best movies that I ever did see was an old John Wayne black and white western from the early 60's named, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. It was a story about a lawyer from the east named Ranse Stoddard who was brilliantly played by Jimmy Stewart. Ranse headed west to find himself a 'fish out of water' as he realized a major problem...the west was null and void of any law. Much to Ranse's chagrin, he was targeted and robbed by the villain of the story, Liberty Valance. Valance passed the time robbing stagecoaches and terrorizing the travelers and townspeople. 

 Enter stage left, Tom Doniphon. Doniphon was played by the one and only John Wayne. He was a good man but known to be tough and strong and thus greatly feared by Valance; he never wanted to find himself crossing Doniphons path and avoided all conflict.  At one point in the film I thought, "when you are strong even the bullies leave you alone! Wouldn't that be something if America could learn this concept as a nation", but I digress. Let's get back to the story because I am angling to make a very unique point as this tale develops.  You see the movie goes on to show that Ranse gets in a gun fight with Valance and even though he has no experience shooting or using a gun at all, he somehow manages to kill Valance and is deemed the town hero!


Ranse not only became the town hero but moved on to governorship. His political career continued as senator, and he eventually becomes a vice president. He knew that if he even gave a nod to the presidency, it would be an easy win as he was known as "The man who shot Liberty Valance" and adored by the masses. This adoration though was based on a lie even though Ranse truly believed he was the man who shot Valance dead. At one point the story is shown in flashbacks and a scene starts out where Jimmy Stewart now a very important senator, attends a funeral in his hometown in Arizona. The townsperson who passed wasn't really known by most of the community and pretty much the only folk that remembered him were the old timers. By this time the name Tom Doniphon had been forgotten. Ranse was questioned by the local newspaper man as to why as a famous senator, would he come back to attend this near stranger's funeral. 

In response, Jimmy Stewart tells the truth after 30 years--for the first time ever!   You see, when he first was running for state senator his opponent accused him that he only was famous because he shot a man, and that killing someone was no basis to be elected as senator let alone deemed a hero.  Ranse was a proud man and a good man, but the guilt was too overwhelming, so he decided to quit and go back to practicing law. 

In another scene, in comes an angry Tom Doniphon . He is beyond irate because not only did Jimmy Stewart steal away his girlfriend, (played by the beautiful Vera Miles), but he was angered at Ranse's ignorance and the plain truth about the shooting of Liberty Valance.  He blurts out to Ranse, "You didn't kill Liberty Valance...I DID!". 

Below is a short clip of a Doniphon's admittance. The scene is powerful, and also is the precursor to the moral of the story. 

What hit me hard and what I want you to see as this story unfolds is this: In everyday life there is a type of a person who is known as "the man who shot Liberty Valance".  These are people who are literally basking in the sunlight of an undeserved glory whilst some unknown is really the reason for that glory; I have always referred to this persona as having "The Liberty Valance Factor".

In my estimation the moral of the story goes even further.  As I see it, behind all successes and behind every successful person there is an unknown person who has contributed so much to who we are! I cannot help but put this in a spiritual context.  I can see how the very person who is unfortunately so very unknown to a lot of people is none other than Jesus Christ. He is The Creator of you and the entire universe. The God of the Old Testament who actually wrote the 10 Commandments with his own fingers. He is the God who talked to Adam and Eve in the garden, the God who loved Abraham as his best friend: the God who protected king David who was person many people hated in his day, but God saw in David a great leader.  God actually said that David was a man after His own heart!   

In conclusion it is your God and Savior who died for you so that you may have eternal life and be a part of the family of God. He is the one who deserves the credit and to be known! For He has given you every good thing that you have!


Understanding Matthew 24 and the Four Horsemen Prophecy

By Bob Barney-The Plain Truth

Matthew24a    In Matthew 24 Jesus spoke specifically to His disciples about the very warnings that will point to His second coming. This amazing event of His return will be the end of the age of man and will be the establishment of His Kingdom on earth. He said to them: “Do you see all these buildings? Truly I say to you, they will be so completely demolished that not one stone will be left on top of another!” As He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “tell us, when will these things be? What is the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” Jesus answered them, “Be careful that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will lead many astray.” (Mathew 24: 3-5 in The Plain Truth Red Letter “Original Order” Bible by Bob Barney.)

     When Jesus said this, He was speaking as prophet knowing all of what the future would hold. He understood that not only false messiahs would appear on the world stage but false religions as well; a good example of this is Islam. Jesus was speaking of a time when many would come to use His name proclaiming that, "Jesus is the Christ", and still manage to deceive many.  He also spoke of 'false Christianity' (not to be confused with false pagan religions), when He said they will come in His name. Unfortunately, most Christians mistakenly assume that Jesus was predicting the arrival of impostors claiming to be Him but really posing as the Antichrist, however, that IS NOT the correct warning here! He was warning us and His disciples about FALSE CHRISTIANITY masquerading as the real thing!

Matthew 24 is one of the longest single prophecies in the Bible and is the most important prophecy that Christ ever did make while on Earth. It is about the birth of a new age after an eruption of world crises' that in fact will end the age of man. The seven seals represent the unfolding of such events and here they are in order: false prophets, war, famine, pestilence, tribulation, heavenly signs, and the seven trumpets that will lead directly to Christ’s return; these events are to happen in rapid succession!

World Population Will Hit EIGHT BILLION This November

Bob Barney

                        The world's population is set to hit eight billion 
According to the United Nations in an updated report, the world's population is set to hit 8 billion by November of this year.

Originally the UN stated there would be 8.5 billion persons by 2030 and 10.4 billion by 2100 but then cited a reason for the spur in growth. They claim it is due to lifespans of those in the third world being lengthened as they have progressed to having better medical care, greater availability of modern medicines, and overall better farming techniques.  What the report failed to consider or to mention is how the war in Ukraine will affect these numbers as it is triggering a worldwide famine.  Experts warn that food shortages could kill millions in the world, including a percentage of the poor in Western Europe and the America's.

Here are some more of the latest population statistics:

India is due to surpass China as the world's most populous country in 2023. Even though both countries are coming in at more than 1.4 billion residents this year, the UN warns that high fertility will substantially challenge economic growth. According to the domestic census, India's population was 1.21 billion in 2011. Their census is conducted once a decade, but the government had postponed the 2021 census due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Eurostat, aka the European Statistical Office, the population of the 27 countries that make up the bloc had a decrease close to 172,000 from the previous year and over 656,000 from January 2020. This was a second year in a row the European Union's population shrank as the region reels from over two million deaths because of the coronavirus. 'In 2020 and 2021 the positive net migration no longer compensated for the negative natural change in the EU and, consequently, the EU’s total population has been decreasing,' it said, pointing to impacts from the pandemic.

Interesting to note, the number of deaths began outstripping births in the EU a decade ago, but immigration from outside the bloc helped offset the gap until the first year of the pandemic.

The European Union's population shrank for a second year running last year, the bloc's statistics office said on Monday
Did you know that God has a lot to say in the Bible about population?

For those interested in Bible prophecy and especially the Four Horsemen prophecies, the increase in population will result in the increase of people killed off during the coming Great Tribulation.  In Revelation chapter six, the second seal introduces a great world war. This war will result in the death of a fourth of the world's population.  That would be 2 billion people killed in a world war!

The sixth trumpet introduces two hundred million horsemen who kill one-third of the people; that is a mind-blowing number of almost 3 billion!  This will occur between the fortieth and forty-second month of the first part of the Tribulation and will bring us to fifty percent of the population being destroyed by God. These individuals have taken the mark of the Beast and are considered incorrigibles.  The fifty percent mentioned here killed only by the midway part of the Tribulation would encompass approximately four billion deaths due to war, famine, and disease.

Sadly, even after four billion deaths, the people of this age who do not know the plain truth about Jesus Christ and His message will continue to reject Him and continue to sin. The Apostle John, author of the Apocalypse, wrote these sad words, “And the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk; and they did not repent of their murders nor of their sorceries nor of their immorality nor of their thefts” (Rev. 9:20-21).  

There are some estimates mentioned that 90% of the people alive when the Tribulation starts will be killed; that's 7.2 billion people!   Jesus Himself declared that if He would not return to save us from ourselves, NO ONE would survive the Tribulation.  He claims that only because of the "elect ones" which are the true followers of Christ, will He save what is left of mankind and the world.  Stop and think about that for a moment; it is sobering indeed.

Conclusively. the boom in population that the UN ignorantly predicts will NOT be the future for this present world as the population will see a rapid decrease over our final 7 years.  The Good News is that Jesus will stop us from killing off mankind.

The Plain Truth: Why there is still a Monarch in Britain. It was a promise God made to David!

image from
Many of us were home watching the 70th anniversary of the Queen of England becoming the Monarch. You might have noticed the pomp and circumstance surrounding The Platinum Jubilee celebration and wondered what it is all for?  The world is totally unaware of the real reason why this is big news.  This milestone is actually news straight from the Bible and the fulfillment of God’s promises!

When Queen Elizabeth II became queen in 1953, she was crowned and seated on a very old throne. Beneath her royal bottom sits a stone known as the Stone of Destiny. It is fascinating to know that King Edward captured this ancient block of sandstone from the people of Scotland in 1296. He then commanded that a special coronation chair be built to enclose the stone. To understand the journey of this stone even before Edward is important to its significance. In Scotland around 840 AD, the 36th King of Dalriada named Kenneth I united the Scots and Pictish kingdoms and moved his capital to Scone, from western Scotland. The Stone of Destiny was moved there, too. All future Scottish kings would henceforth be enthroned on the Stone of Destiny atop Moot Hill at Scone Palace in Perthshire.

Unfortunately, even the British population today do not know about significance of the coronation chair and the Stone of Destiny. The Plain Truth is that our Almighty God is behind this chair and behind the monarchy in England. You see, this stone dates to biblical times and it is the same stone which Jacob used as a pillow at Bethel when he had dreams of a stairway to heaven! Later, it became the pedestal of the ark in the Temple. The stone was brought from Syria to Egypt by King Gathelus who then fled to Spain following the defeat of the Egyptian army. A descendant of Gathelus brought the stone to Ireland and was crowned on it as the King of Ireland; from Ireland, the stone moved with the invading Scots to Argyll in Scotland.

Why is this stone important to us today? God made a promise to King David that He would always have an heir on the Throne of Israel! King Saul, then David, followed by Solomon and every monarch of Israel after was crowned over this holy rock because of this very promise!

Update:  Boris may get his wish, but he won't be a part of it!  See yesterday's Breaking News Announcement:

Breaking:Prime Minister Boris Johnson will QUIT and make 'statement to the country' TODAY after mutiny by top ministers

You can't make these headlines up!  It is amazing how the Bible itself has accurately predicted what is going to be occurring in the world while most of us don't pay a blind's eye to what is really happening.  The Faux News is merely distracting most of us working folks from being informed about what God has predicted so long ago. The Plain Truth has predicted since its inception that not only will Europe reunite as a revised Holy Roman Empire but become one again.  So today we read in that of all people, Boris Johnson used that exact term!

Boris Johnson, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and Leader of the Conservative Party, has always been controversial but he raised the volume last week when he suggested that the best way to unite Europe was by, "recreating the Roman Empire".

His vision of the Roman Empire in the 21st century is based on a partnership that includes Turkey and the North African states. At the NATO summit in Madrid last month, he told reporters that this would be based on the 'Mare Nostrum', the Latin term for the Mediterranean Sea. It is interesting to note that 19th-century Italian nationalist fascists used the term to describe Italy as the successor state to the Roman Empire. The term was again taken up by Benito Mussolini for use in fascist propaganda in a similar manner to Adolf Hitler’s lebensraum system of colonialism.

Hitler's Europe is the model of what Europe is to become again.  Most people today see the European Union as a civilized socialist democracy that many in America admire but that is going to change; Europe will unite again and re-arm.  Weak leaders like Obama, Biden and the RINO Republicans will cause Europeans to see that America can't be trusted to protect them.  Once Europe is a major power again a Hitler like monster will gain control of the empire.  In the book of Daniel, he is called the King of the North and in Revelation, he is the antichrist.

My View- Gun Control Laws Kill

English: Current Status of Shall Issue Laws in...English: Current Status of Shall Issue Laws in America (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

By Bob Barney (1st published May 2010-updated since, many times)

It's about time Americans face up to the real cause of mass killings in America and who is really responsible for the mounting death toll. I am referring to Aurora, Newtown, San Bernardino, and now, Virginia Beach!

The Plain Truth is that it is the cause are because of politicians and the liberals who brought us gun control.

The fact is that the same people taking away your constitutional right to bare arms are protected by guns themselves. We have been lied to by the very people who are protected by people carrying guns. Does Chuck Schumer have armed bodyguards? How about Nancy Pelosi or President Obama?

You know the answer.


There are over 20,000 gun laws and regulations on the books in the USA. If those laws haven't made America safe by now why should we think that one or two new laws would work?

"Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people"

Bob Barney


John Adams warned that, "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. … "Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other."  John Adams was not saying an American had to be a Christian, as Patrick Henry did, but he said that Americans MUST BE a MORAL and RELIGIOUS!  

Here is a brief BIO on everyone who signed the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE!   eye opening, and The PLAIN TRUTH!


Why America is So Special- July 4th Weekend...

This is an updated version of an older story on why America is so special, along with Great Britain and Canada.  It's a story of our national identity!

Someone once asked me, "Bob how can you say in one breath that God has little to nothing to do with this world, then say that the USA is one of the lost nations of Israel? You also say that if we do not obey God, our nation will be utterly destroyed by H
im? Which scenario is it, is God involved or is it Satan’s world?"

I am quite sure that many have asked themselves the same question and let me assure you that there is an easy answer! God was totally involved in our world in the days of Adam and Eve. He (One of the divine Godhead that became Jesus) personally walked with them, talked with them, instructed them in how to live a godly lifestyle and have life forever. God had every intention to be involved in our lives from the start, just as any human parent has those same plans with their children.

Then sin entered the world through Adam and Eve’s disobedience of God’s Laws. Remember there is only one biblical definition of sin. "Sin is the transgression of the law." (1 John 3:4) Without the law, one cannot sin! (Romans 3:20 and Romans 7:7) When Adam and Eve broke God’s laws, they sinned. The Bible also gives us another term: "The wages (or penalty) of sin is death." (Rom 6:23) Therefore breaking the laws of God, brings death! Therefore, Adam’s sin brought death to mankind.

Did you know the real story of Ben Hur?

The Rest of the Story (Ben Hur) inspired by the late Paul Harvey

A New "Ben Hur" Movie has been released. In no way does it match Heston's Original Classic, but do you know the story behind Ben Hur?   It is an amazing story of an atheist finding GOD!

Bob Barney

Most folks my age know the story of Ben Hur, maybe some of the younger generations out there have not read the book or had a chance to watch the movie; but I highly recommend it!  This classic book was written by a Civil War general, named Lew Wallace in 1899. His story became movie starring Charlton Heston which won the Academy Award for best movie in 1959. It is a towering story of love, of suffering and of the struggle of good against evil. 

Judah Ben Hur, the story’s hero, grows up with his childhood friend, Messala.  Judah is a Jew, and Messala is Roman. Judah is the heir of a very great and wealthy house in Jerusalem. Messala is a promising military man who trained in Rome as a soldier then returned to Jerusalem as the leader of the Roman occupation forces. Both are great friends, but fate intervenes and makes the two bitter enemies.

Judah Ben Hur is sent off to die in prison, but a thoughtful man gives him water to drink and that act of kindness leads to his will to survive. As fate would have it, he finds himself saving the admiral of the Roman fleet and thus thrusting Judah back into fame and fortune.

The story of Ben Hur is riveting and awe inspiring, but do you know the rest of the story about the AUTHOR, Lew Wallace?  You see General Wallace, like me started out as an atheist!  He began this book to show the silliness of the Christian faith. I started off on my spiritual journey to do the same. Back in 1975 I was hellbent on disproving Garner Ted Armstrong and his logical and methodical belief in God - The God of the Bible! This story has a special meaning to me because both Mr. Wallace and I had a date with destiny. Mine was just 70 years later than his! And the rest of the story ???????????????????  Click on Read More below

Russia Says It Sees Risks From Germany 'Remilitarizing'

The Plain Truth has been predicting since we started posting online in 2008 (and believed these truths even long before that) that in the End Times, Russia will not be the threat people think. The major threat to world domination will be a revised Holy Roman Empire led by two beasts. One will be the Pope, who will spiritually align with an emperor of Europe, emerging most likely out of one of two countries, Italy or Germany. In Daniel 11, this leader is known as The King of the North and is also known as The Beast of Revelation! This is not our opinion, this is in the Bible and is the Holy Word of God!  In the end times, America, Western Europe, and Britain (all a part of the lost tribes of Israel), Russia, and China will not have the power they enjoy today!

The current leader of Russia, Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping of China who has been serving as General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), Chairman of the Central Military Commission (CMC) since 2012, and President of the People's Republic of China (PRC) since 2013, are not what the mainstream media and other world leaders project them to be.

What Must Happen BEFORE Christ Returns

Are We in the Last Days (Prelim 1985)01

By Bob Barney 

Are we living in the last days? Are we in the end times? Is the return of Jesus Christ right around the corner? These are the questions that many of us ask ourselves whenever we read the book of Revelation or the Gospel of Matthew concerning the return of Jesus Christ and His kingdom of God that He is bringing with Him. 

First of all, there is a misnomer with the term, “end times” that most people have. Jesus was never talking about the end of the world, neither was John in his book of Revelations.  What both men were talking about is best described with the phrase “the end of the age” of mankind.

When God created man, Adam and Eve to be exact, a new age upon this earth began. It was the age of mankind, and it began approximately 5 to 6000 years ago as best we can tell. Adam was set up to rule the earth during this age but because of his sin, Adam lost his right as ruler of this age–the age of mankind. Many are not aware that the Bible plainly states the Earth is much older than man. In fact, those who believe the earth to be billions of years old are not necessarily in conflict with the Bible at all! It is very possible that the earth is very old. In Genesis the correct translation of God creating the heavens and the earth is that God re-created the earth after a cataclysm that is not mentioned. This former earth was under the rulership of the great archangel Lucifer, the angel who rebelled against God and became Satan. If Adam had not sinned, he would have been the ruler of this age. But Adam did sin and was not able to replace Satan as the ruler of this age.

The Gospel of Jesus Christ, one that is rarely ever presented in churches today, is that Jesus as God is coming back to replace Satan as the ruler of this earth and usher in a new age. When Christ returns, he is bringing the kingdom of God with Him, a government that will have no end, and the age of man will come to an end. That is the gospel that is not preached today. Jesus was not merely talking about salvation, He was not talking about how to get to heaven.  What he was talking about was bringing God’s government to earth, complete with God’s Laws and God's Love.

Those chosen to be Christians in this age have not been chosen for the personal reward of going to heaven when they die, because the plain truth is that we do not! Rather our mission is to help God prepare for the return of Jesus Christ as the king of this earth and to establish God’s government here, as it is now in Heaven. We don’t go to heaven when we die, we resurrect from the dead upon the return of Christ to rule with him as spiritual beings.  Do yourself a favor and read 1 Corinthians 15.  Paul clearly explains the state of the dead when we rise from the dead and where we will be when we rise.  It is such an easy chapter to read, I think you will be amazed that you maybe have never read it!  We have coming to us, an incredible awesome destiny! Unfortunately ministers who proclaim the Gospel just do not proclaim this truth! They leave the average person out there in total ignorance of the real plan of God.

I will not be telling you when the age is to come to an end because frankly, I do not know. Your preacher does not know, the Pope does not know, and some holy roller out in the desert does not know! So don’t be fooled! We must and always be prepared for the return of Christ, but we should live with the understanding that it may not happen in our lifetime. Doing anything else is doing the work of Satan to draw us away from God’s plan and eventually cause us to fail in our mission. Don’t be deceived, do not trust charlatans who would steal your money and your soul for their own gain. Christ made it clear that only He knows the exact time of His return, and we would not know. What He did give us were signs to allow us to understand in general when the time of His return was at hand. Simply put, we are to look for these signs.

#1: Wars and everyone talking about war all over the world.

#2: There would be earthquakes in places where they should not be. Earthquakes and regions where earthquakes always have been are not signs, but earthquakes in regions that do not have them, is a sign.

#3 False Christianity would become the accepted religion. Notice, I did not say FALSE RELIGION, I said false Christianity. Paul said for us to be aware of “another gospel” that was already being preached in his day. Paul warns in Gal 1:6-9: "I marvel that you are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.” That false gospel has been preached since at least AD 50. It changed Saturday to Sunday, and Passover to Easter. It replaced the Law of Christ with lawlessness. 

#4 A worldwide financial collapse (the Black Horse of Revelation) which will lead to the reformation of the Holy Roman Empire, which is Europe and NOT RUSSIA!

#5 Worldwide poverty and death brought about by wars, especially from the pale green horseman of Revelation. We will see food shortages in America, England, and the modern world! Genetically modified crops will begin to fail, food will be in short supply, and poverty disease and death will follow. Not in Africa or some third world nation, but in the modern Western World - America under Obamacare, and European health care systems will be reduced into killing machines, wiping the earth clean of seniors and sickly people. Hitler’s final solution will become reality to BILLIONS on earth, and not just to Jews and the disabled. 

#6 The love of people will go away. Even Christians, (myself included), have been so overwhelmed by the evilness in this world, pretending to be “hope and change” that we will see the tribulations that are coming on the evil people as God’s just judgement. We will not care. We should care, but we won’t. Only in constant prayer and mediating on Christ’s words, will we be able to overcome the hatred that is building in our souls towards those that have caused all these calamities.

#7 Finally we will see signs in the heavens themselves. Comets and shooting stars, asteroids hitting the earth and all sorts of natural destruction, not caused by man-made global warming, but made by God as punishment to those on this planet who refuse to obey God’s Laws. The final sign we will see in heaven is the LORD GOD, we call Jesus Christ, the Yahweh of the Bible, riding on His horse, as bright as the sun itself, coming to this planet to take His place on His throne, here on planet earth, replacing and destroying the lawless and evil people of this world.

Then, Revelation will be completed. The healing will begin, but not a moment sooner.
