Davey has it in for the men in charge of the various splinter groups. While it may revolve around what some of them teach, it runs far deeper. Davey is still incensed that church members are giving their money to these groups. He hates that with a passion. Every single letter he writes has to have this pointing it. that money belongs to Davey and he cannot understand why no one else in the various COG's understand that.
On top of all this, brethren foolishly sent tithes to God’s enemies who were teaching them “damnable heresies.” The men leading PCG, LCG, UCG and COGwa are God’s ENEMIES! (You have actually read this in these announcements from Mr. Armstrong’s own pen.) God’s people assumed they were following faithful leaders when these men were in fact “evil men and seducers” who were growing “worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived” (II Tim. 3:13). Also weak and confused themselves, many ministers have been participants with false leaders over the groups. God must deal with these leaders—and you will see in a few weeks how prophecy reveals He will! For now, you at least know how soon this will happen.
Davey's god is so pissed off with the COG's that he has deliberately left them in a state of turmoil. No one in the splinter groups has listened to Davey or his god. That has ticked Davey off big time.
Davey's god though is ready to bring back the wayward apostates in the COG's into the loving arms of St Dave who will forgive them of the adultery, lying, stealing and Sabbath breaking they are all guilty of.
God left His people in this terrible condition so they would “learn from affliction” (Psa. 119:67, 71). Much like the prodigal son, who blew everything before he woke up, God’s people had to learn bitter lessons and repent from their wrong conduct and false beliefs. They had to “consider their ways.” Only then could they return to God’s Church. (I have written an entire announcement outlining the meaning of “consider your ways,” along with how to do it.) God has been trying to get the attention of brethren in the splinters about their condition by sending desolation upon them. It has not worked, and Haggai shows that God knew it would not. Although He has not yet been working with large numbers in these “houses” of men, He soon will through His Spirit. As a loving shepherd, God will regather the non-resistant part of His flock back to His Church, REINSTATING THEM, just as any good local pastor would do with one who was disfellowshipped for adultery, lying, stealing tithes, Sabbath breaking, etc.
