Dear Brethren of the Philadelphian dispersion(ex-worldwide church of God members) of the Church of God,
Once again Greetings and hope all is going well for God’s Elect in a world gone mad! We hope all had a profitable Sabbath, spiritually rewarding in everyday, peaceful and restful, rejuvenating both physically and spiritually in the fellowship of our great God in heaven.
Brethren, its been nearly a month since the “Last Great Day”, and the world continues to increase its pace toward pain and suffering, and the build up to global war and anarchy continues unabated. The train is full speed ahead no matter who is in the control room of worldly powers under Satan. It’s becoming very obvious now that most news reports are unreliable and many just propaganda and misleading. We have only one Lord, one saviour, one Father and one God. As the scriptures clearly speak, cursed is man who trust in man,
Jer 17:5; Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
The world is turning to men for their deliverance from war, pain and suffering as they always do, and they only mention God when they want Him to bless and support their human hope, always been fooled by the same men who are of the same mould; while sin, abomination and rebellion against the ways of God continue to increase daily.
Evangelicals in the world (includes many in cog groups) are powerfully promoting a false gospel and false Christ deceiving millions into a false hope and false salvation. They are fools and raving tongues, completely void of God’s truth and plan of salvation for humanity. They just do not understand that Christ came to be a King, Lord and God to rule over all nations, peoples and tongues, and to prepare a people (His Church) to rule with and under Him as kings and priests, when He returns soon to establish the Kingdom of God on Earth and once again restore His rule and Government. Thy just do not understand nor comprehend that at all and think that godless irreverent men will be their deliverers and asking their god to help them in their quest.
This should brings us to the realisation of how blessed we are dear brethren, to have had our names written in the book of life from the foundation of this world, and in the proper time and place be called and granted repentance by God and placed in the Temple that Christ will soon return to on Earth; a spiritual Temple made of spiritual beings, born again, into the Kingdom of God, the promised inheritance. Since the Last Great Day brethren, I see our redemption draw near as the world races to self oblivion through war and abominations run rampant from the top of the head to the feet as the whole body is diseased As Jesus Christ warns in the gospel of Luke ch 21, to watch and pray, stand fast and not loose focus, and to lift up our eyes and see our redeemer approaching; I find these scriptures very revealing of the times we are in and very encouraging in that we are closer than we realise. There is so much we can discuss here of everything that is going on in the world showing how close we are to the fulfilment of all the things spoken, as indeed much has already happened and is happening now (e.g., to me the current earthquakes are a major sign, as well as the events in the ME, Europe and the house of Israel); the words below will all shortly come to pass, the exact timeline only God himself knows, but time is short brethren:
20 And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh. 21 Then let them which are in Judæa flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto. 22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. 23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. 24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. 25 ¶And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. 27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. 29 And he spake to them a parable; Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; 30 When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand. 31 So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand. 32 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled. 33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. 34 ¶And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. 35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
As I have mentioned before, the discerning of the times seems to reveal that this may have been the last fot season in our customary way, as the world continues to build up and prepare for more wars in these pre tribulation events, escalating rapidly into the GT as we see prophetic sign post take place; major event are on the horizon, even though it may seem that events may de-escalate due to a certain individual been elected. This will not happen brethren as the prophetic Word of God stands.
I besiege you brethren to be watching closely, carefully and intensely at worldwide events as well as in the house of Jacob. There are major sign of the times world over, major events in the ME and Europe are being prepared. The morphing of Europe is taking place.
Again I repeat brethren, the evolving situation is rapidly bringing about end time prophetic events. Gog is shaking the sky over the ME as I said he would two month ago, and now displays his super weapons to Europe as warnings.
Again brethren, beware of apostasies (doctrines and teachings contrary to God’s Apostles/Apostle) brethren, as well warned by the Apostles, Paul, Peter, James, John, as well as Jude and Christ Himself. The warnings of not letting any man take our crowns are louder today then ever, as well as the warnings to contend for the Faith once delivered, enduring and persevering to the end. What does this mean but to hold on to our calling according as God had led us to the truth, drawing us to Him by granting us repentance and by and through His Holy Spirit leading us to His church and end time Apostle, Mr. Herbert W Armstrong, and the Elijah who was to come before the terrible day of the Lord, through whom God revealed the knowledge of His purpose and plan for the Church and humanity as a whole to us, as well as the doctrines and understanding of Israel and the prophetic Word dealing with the last days. It was God who gave us the Faith to believe, to understand, to discern and to walk in the fear of the Lord which was the beginning of the wisdom He gave us, which grew with time; and we were told to seek His kingdom and His righteousness before and above ALL else, and to grow in the knowledge and Grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as well as in the fullness of the nature and stature of our Lord, until we obtain His mind and likeness unto perfection. It would be good to revise the restored truth we received through the Philadelphia era.
I know I have said this before, but it is si important I repeat it again; “We are told dear brethren to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling, and to avoid the snares of the devil by staying close to God, as men who call themselves brothers and leaders attempt to lord it over us, by using the the scriptures to manipulation brethren to their benefit, and who are certainly not apostles through whom God is working with and revealing new and different so-called truths of various kings that differ to what God had revealed to us through our calling. Never forget that God only reveals His revelations of truth, be it prophesy, doctrine etc, to His chosen Apostles, then this Apostle teaches or reveals it to the church, by and through His Holy Spirit or by sending directly one of His messengers to His servants, e.g. the prophet Daniel.
Their intentions good or bad, these brother(?) effectively are trying to add or take away from our faith according to their own perceived understanding of scripture, whether they actually perceive this or not, believing or thinking God is using them in some special way. God does not reveal divine truths to any and every member of the church; it’s from top down and not from bottom up! And its through HIS CHOSEN servants, not self appointed shepherds, ministers, evangelist leaders etc. All these also received the truth from the Apostle which they now deny, claiming authority that has not been given them, and feeding of the sheets back. Only God knows their true motives and designs, Only HE knows there heart! All we can do is test the spirits and judge their fruits whether they are good or bad, but their conscience will betray them to God”.
Also to again repeat Brethren, even though it will be for a short time, the wild Beast/Babylon is rising for the last time to do their damage as the king of darkness empowers the princes of darkness and the man of sin(false prophet) to inflict more with works of evil throughout the instruments of war of Jacobs strength and across the globe though supposedly his time is running out. I urge you brethren to be watching earnestly for suddenly will come the day to flee to the place of safety for the elect few found worthy to escape these things to come. Again, I say watch! Be ware of the great signs and wonders by the false prophet and shepherds and ministers of Satan, so as to deceive if possible, even the elect! Therefore I say again, Watch! Real News blackout continue, as though not much is happening, but to the contrary of the reality of events taking shape everywhere Brethren, as I have said I do not comment on elections, nor individuals politics, but do not believe what is said or implied by this worlds promises of better times ahead, or making Jacob great again. Some in cog groups believe doors will now open to preach the gospel or do an Elijah work! Not true, it is a lie, this will not happen, and is just the same as saying, “ Peace, peace;The Lord delays His coming, give and support us to do the work”, Matth 24: 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Also Luke 12: 36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. 37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. 38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. 39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. 40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not. 41 ¶Then Peter said unto him, Lord, speakest thou this parable unto us, or even to all? 42 And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? 43 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 44 Of a truth I say unto you, that he will make him ruler over all that he hath. 45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; 46 The lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. 47 And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 48 But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Brethren there are forces shaping up to force certain events to occur. As I have mentioned before, this dark prince of Manasseh is not ready to give up power, as he speaks and acts as though he still rules and will continue to rule, and his masters have more use for him; so watch for sudden events and upheavals to occur, which I though would be around the FOT time, but now very early in the year. The wild Beast shall rise out of the submerged chaos, to devour Jacob! As The spirit of the Roman Empire rises from the grave to join the wild Beast! Meanwhile Gog is shake the skies over the ME causing Europe to question and turn as its people will demand nationalism and restoration giving rise to new forces coming into being, overturning the old guard who have deliberately failed its people. Brethren, I know I repeat myself on somethings, but I feel it important to.
Brethren, remember one another, continue to pray for all brethren, please pray for us and each other in these times of peril, for God to stay Satan’s hand from His Elect. His time is getting shorter and his anger rising in his attempt to destroy Christ’s Church.
Until next time brethren,
with deep brotherly love to all of God’s people, and may God’s Spirit, Grace and love be abundantly poured on His called out ones, who are the saints of GOD.
your brethren in Christ
