Dear Beloved Brethren of God’s one and only true Church,
To this small group of people ( currently Philadelphians, and Laodiceans ) , who can trace their history all the way back to the NT times through the eras of Sardis, Thyatira, Pergamos, Smyrna, Ephesus(the first era); from the Apostle Peter: 1Pet 1: 2 The Elect of the Eternal God according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied. 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, 4 To an inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you, 5 Who are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.
High Sabbath Greetings(LDOUB) to all of God’s beloved elect people. Currently physically leaderless, but in reality spiritually led and guided by our spiritual leader and head of the Body, Jesus Christ, over those holding Fast to the ‘Faith Once Delivered’, according to the commandments of Christ and the Apostles. Revelation clearly reveals the head of God’s Church:
Revelation of John 1: (KJ)
1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John: 2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw. 3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand. 4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. 7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. 8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. 9 I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. 10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, 11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea. 12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp two edged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: 18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death. 19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter; 20 The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches.
Brethren, these are times of peril and darkness for humanity, spreading over the entire world, but for us a time that Luke spoke of in Luke 21: 22-28
Luke 21:22…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
Our recent reflection and examination of self and the state of the confusion and chaos over God’s elect should have led all of us to refocus, and to return to the commitments of our Faith for those who have strayed but still truly sincere to follow and obey Christ, and our calling and the legacy of Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong, God’s late end time Apostle and the work done through him with the support of the Philadelphian era of God’s Church. It is a time to consider and be reminded of, meditate and absorb the depth of God’s love for us (and all of humanity, for God so loved humanity(not the world) that He gave His only begotten son as a ransom for many, (and Christ willingly in perfect unity with the Father freely offered Himself) through the sacrificial offering of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ(the WORD of GOD) to pay the penalty of our sins and reconcile us to the Father; for by Christ shed blood we are cleansed of our sins, by His death we are reconciled to the Father, and by His resurrection the door to eternal life has been opened to us, as Christ leads us and presents us to the Father.
Brethren(again, I am only seeking God’s true Elect and converted people with a repentant spirit and a penitent heart). As I have mentioned in past post and repeat again, these are not times for God’s people to debate, argue bring forth so-called new truth/heresies, or bring in new material from and or by ministers nor lay members, or materialize stumbling blocks for those of weaker or relatively new in the Faith etc, as it seems to be happening among many among God’s people. For my dear brethren, there is only one Body, one Spirit, one Faith, one Doctrine, one Baptism and One GOD, the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. and therefore we are ALL ONE with Christ and the Father; no division, no discourse, or arguments nor debates of doctrines given to us, nor introduction of apostasies/heresies etc, nor introduction of wounds or sores, nor I am with him or him etc. The reality my brethren is that the pure Faith has already been given through the Apostles and recently revived in its fullness of truth, beautiful and perfected in love, through His end time servant and Apostle Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong (whether one likes it or not). For the reality my beloved brethren is that God only directly works through His Chosen servants for that purpose in reveling truth to His congregation the Church and not in Evangelist, pastors, shepherds, ministers and lastly lay members etc, this is abundantly clear in the writings of the NT Apostles and the fruits of His end time apostle.
I have been writing now for about Ten years, urging our brethren to stay the course and contend for the Faith once delivered as Jude did back nearly 2000 years ago: Jude: 1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James, to them that are sanctified by God the Father, and preserved in Jesus Christ, and called: 2 Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied. 3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. 4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ. 5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. 6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
Brethren, I repeat also what Jude said, as the evidence and fruits of today from most if not all leaders and administrative heads of cogs that came from the WWCOG seem to fall into this category to one degree or another. Therefore the Lay member has the responsibility and duty, as he owes his life to God, the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, to examine and test and prove all things coming from the mouths and mind of these men destined for such judgment, who would pervert the Faith and Grace of Christ our Lord, and the doctrines and teachings that He brought to us through His end time Apostle Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. For these men have no authority nor authorization to do so! I repeat, they have no authority nor authorization to do so! Not from any source, but from their own machinations of their own mind and heart, as to mold their cog into their own image and likeness due to their delusions and illusions of grandeur, as though God is working through them to change what God did through His end time Apostle due to God having made many mistakes and is now rectifying them through them. They only have smooth sounding words and clever manipulation of language mixed with truths, mixed truths and deliberate errors and also actual lies! WHO DOES THIS REMIND YOU OFF! Satan of course. These men never come out and openly say or reveal what they want to do or change; they use guile, as I saw and heard on the last day of UB in one of the main cogs; continually using the word “change”(in present tense) over and over, so as to condition the brethren for more coming deviations from the Faith of our Original Calling. And yet, Jesus our Lord and God, has told us to let our yes be yes and no be no, anything more than this is of sin. Brethren, consider these Psalms:
Psalms 19:13: Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.
II Peter 2:10: But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
God changes not! And also in this statement, Christ specifically told the NT Apostles: Matthew 16:19: And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
Which also applied to all the angles of the church eras. Only God’s chosen Apostles were given this authority. If you notice throughout history, God’s church had lost truths, and whenever something was added, it was actually restored truths, as it happened in the Philadelphia era in a majour way as prophesied it would. Error upon error was only added to the false Apostate Babylonian church of Satan! Until it reached its fullness of today.
Remember king Belshazzar and the writing on the wall: Dan 5.
3 Then they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes, his wives, and his concubines, drank in them. 4 They drank wine, and praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of stone. 5 In the same hour came forth fingers of a man’s hand, and wrote over against the candlestick upon the plaister of the wall of the king’s palace: and the king saw the part of the hand that wrote.
These men today who head cogs and are of apostate minds are also profaning the precious Holy Truths of God, which are more precious than gold and silver, in the same way, by treating them as common things to use and abuse and change at will. And now let’s see what the word was and what happened to the king.
Dan 5: 13 Then was Daniel brought in before the king. And the king spake and said unto Daniel, Art thou that Daniel, which art of the children of the captivity of Judah, whom the king my father brought out of Jewry? 14 I have even heard of thee, that the spirit of the gods is in thee, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom is found in thee. 15 And now the wise men, the astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing, and make known unto me the interpretation thereof: but they could not shew the interpretation of the thing: 16 And I have heard of thee, that thou canst make interpretations, and dissolve doubts: now if thou canst read the writing, and make known to me the interpretation thereof, thou shalt be clothed with scarlet, and have a chain of gold about thy neck, and shalt be the third ruler in the kingdom. 17 Then Daniel answered and said before the king, Let thy gifts be to thyself, and give thy rewards to another; yet I will read the writing unto the king, and make known to him the interpretation. 18 O thou king, the most high God gave Nebuchadnezzar thy father a kingdom, and majesty, and glory, and honour: 19 And for the majesty that he gave him, all people, nations, and languages, trembled and feared before him: whom he would he slew; and whom he would he kept alive; and whom he would he set up; and whom he would he put down. 20 But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in pride, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him: 21 And he was driven from the sons of men; and his heart was made like the beasts, and his dwelling was with the wild asses: they fed him with grass like oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven; till he knew that the most high God ruled in the kingdom of men, and that he appointeth over it whomsoever he will. 22 And thou his son, O Belshazzar, hast not humbled thine heart, though thou knewest all this; 23 But hast lifted up thyself against the Lord of heaven; and they have brought the vessels of his house before thee, and thou, and thy lords, thy wives, and thy concubines, have drunk wine in them; and thou hast praised the gods of silver, and gold, of brass, iron, wood, and stone, which see not, nor hear, nor know: and the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified: 24 Then was the part of the hand sent from him; and this writing was written. 25 And this is the writing that was written, MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN. 26 This is the interpretation of the thing: MENE; God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it. 27 TEKEL; Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting. 28 PERES; Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.
Brethren, do you truly understand the immense meaning and significance of these scriptures (as it is written in 2Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.;)
Dear brethren, their is no other name in heaven or on Earth by which we may be saved, and no other authority under God the Father than Jesus Christ our Lord and God and head of God’s One and only true Church, and no other authority of men under Christ than God’s Chosen Apostles, and in the Philadelphia era it was Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong, Fact! Proof of the pudding is in the eating, and this man’s fruits and works were without a doubt a sweet smelling aroma to God, as we all at the time were privileged to be a part of and tasted the work of God and the heavenly blessings that came with it; a calling to works of righteousness and perfection in Christ through the indwelling of the gift of the Holy Spirit the promised guarantor of our salvation.
Brethren, It is time to wake UP! These are very serious times we live in, these are the last days! The world is run by madmen, children and deranged women, and it is happened to this world exactly as God had prophesied through His servants of old. It is time to put a check on runaway shepherd, ministers and leaders of cog groups, and demand a return to the Faith once delivered under God’s end time Apostle. I am not asking for more splits, but a return to the pure Faith of our calling brethren. For I , as you were, were called by God and not men, and God does not make mistakes! And God raised up the Philadelphian era up to fulfill matth 24:14 and not men, but raised and used a man for that purpose. We must resist the Laodicean temptation, we must resist Satan, we must resist men that were destined for judgment to perditions flames, that fell to Satan’s lies(and yet pray for them). We must finish the race that we began with our first love, and with God’s Holy Spirit dwelling within we will, if we endure and persevere seeking God’s righteouness and His kingdom before all else to the very end, as we contend for the Faith once delivered by Christ our Lord through His chosen Apostles. Lastly, remember brethren, the place of safety awaits only the Philadelphian era of God’s Church as promised in Rev 3.
To finish up brethren, I have pasted two links to articles that scratche the surface of the world we live in and the state of Ephraim and Manasseh.
Finally brethren, Grace and Peace be to all our brethren, with brotherly love and affection, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be abundantly pored on all His Elect that love and seek our Lord Jesus Christ in the Spirit of truth and sincerity of mind and heart, Amen.
Isaiah 3:4: And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. (admin; this is the case today)
As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.
The children spoken of here, refers to men who are as mature as children, and also is a metaphor of children themselves of very young age being rebellious against parents etc. And the women well that speaks for itself.
