Translation: I'm trying to figure out how to spin this. It was one after the feast and three or more after that but I want this to go away so it will all be in one big, "please don't keep reminding me of this." This being the last announcement for some team means that this will probably never come up again. Thank you for playing and now please stay and help me build Daveyworld.
"This long, important announcement will bring three final elements to the prophecy, and includes helpful excerpts from an extraordinary 1972 article by Herbert W. Armstrong about how Christians should view matters of prophetic timing."
Translation: It's long because it's hard, if not impossible, for me to explain a big mistake with a short apology. I am going to show you how awesomely HWA skirted his own flub ups with an amazing and authoritative letter that reveals how he didn't know how to say "I was wrong" either and made it look like our fault.
"Next week’s announcement, to appear some time between Monday and Wednesday, will carefully explain additional matters about the prophecy’s timing that came to light a month ago."
Translation: I have a tendency to cause darkness trying to bring things to light. I'm not waiting another week and I want this monkey off my back. I will be making a few long and winding excuses for last months flub up and make every effort to make you believe God has revealed awesome new things that we (WE?) did not, yeah..could not have known at that time. I have to win over the brethren all over again and start a new series of seat gyrating sermons on some other Old Testament drivel.
" Readers will find it fascinating. No next “date” will be set, but the reader will be able to conclude for himself what may happen. Mr. Pack will explain what had not been understood."
Dave is an example of trying to multiply by division and add to himself by subracting from others.
It didn't work...
