About a year before,on 16 August 1977 Herbert W Armstrong temporarily died due to heart failure--but was resuscitated. Dr Roy McCarthy (an experienced medical doctor, former mayor, and sometime Regional Director of the WCG in Holland and South Africa) told Gerald Waterhouse that there was no medical record of anyone as old recovering to the extent Mr Armstrong did. In other words, this was a miracle. Satan also tried to hide the significance of what God did this day.
It was the day of the huge media blitz announcing the death of Elvis Presley (“the King”), which preoccupied the attention of the world. The subsequent reported sightings of Elvis being still alive, or back from the dead, seem to be a surreal counterfeit of what actually happened to the descendant of Royal King David, --the endtime Elijah, Herbert W Armstrong--on the same day.
