On Friday, July 26, Dave Pack releases his second to last letter before the Great Reunification. In it he compares himself
The many sermons I have given, including much of what you have read and will read, bring GOD’S interpretation of phrases, symbols and terms that He uses, not my private opinions. The reader will find that Zechariah 11 is in code. But nothing within it is complicated. Each verse has a clear explanation if we just allow the Bible—meaning GOD!—to interpret the meaning through other scriptures. The “code” it is written in becomes easily unlocked.
Dave continues on explaining he alone is the only person on the entire earth that is capable of interrupting Zechariah, because he is the ONLY human God is using - much to Gerald Flurry's indignation.
Dave then goes on to whine that even HWA did not talk about Zechariah:...few ever think through that someone has to teach the MEANING of what the prophets recorded. Otherwise, the secret remains a secret. False prophets and false teachers never get these secrets right because God is not using them. He works through the servant that He IS using, and the explanation is both correct and makes sense against ALL related verses. The bigger the prophecy—and this one is GIANT—the greater the importance for God to “reveal His secret,” but then only to His people, not the world. Recall that Haggai himself is called “the Lord’s messenger” who brings “the Lord’s message” to His people. Haggai contains BIG secrets. Thus, at God’s selected time, someone—think about this—SOMEONE, from somewhere—has to explain this “Lord’s message” to God’s people or Haggai cannot be a messenger—to anyone. It is that simple. This is MY role.
Dave needs to realize that may be there was reason HWA did not talk about it! It wasn't relevant.
We are ready to begin examination of Zechariah, specifically chapter 11. This chapter was never openly discussed in the Worldwide Church of God. I never heard Mr. Armstrong talk about it even once. Since the apostasy, there have only been a few crazy opinions about Zechariah 11, but all of them have been disproven.
He then jumps on Gerald Flurry's back and knocks him down about the "crazy opinions...that have been disproven."
In a swift response Gerald Flurry hit back this weekend with this:
This prophetic book of Zechariah has only now been fully understood! The book of Zechariah contains prophecy about two end-time churches of God. One church is doing God’s work. The other church, which is Laodicean, fails in its commission to do God’s work. The key to understanding these churches is a flying scroll. It shows us what God is doing today and where it is all leading. ▪
