In the September/October issue of Royal Vision, the chief narcissist of the Philadelphia Church of God, Gerald Flurry, makes the claim again that his book, Malachi's Message, is equal to the Bible and is spoken about in the Book of Revelation. Even though Gerald Flurry plagiarized the entire book from Letters to Laodicea, by Jules Devraes, he still claims it as his own.
Because Flurry considers himself to be the greatest human man to ever have lived, right after“This chapter 10 [of Revelation] has been virtually overlooked,” Mr. Armstrong wrote in the February 1977 Plain Truth. “I did not comment on it in the earlier days, or expound it when I wrote this outline of the book of Revelation, or the full booklet on the Revelation.” Then he talked about the little book. He concluded: “The Apostle John in his vision is told to take the little book, which is open in the hand of the angel, and eat it up. How like Ezekiel’s prophecy!” It is very much like Ezekiel’s prophecy because both are talking about the same little book: Malachi’s Message. That book was revealed shortly after Mr. Armstrong died. This is a critical part of the Work in the end time because if you don’t understand the little book, you’re lost. The book of Revelation begins with God and then, in chapters 2 and 3, describes the seven eras of His Church. So the order of things is God first; then God’s Church eras, the firstfruits.
God gives this Church a lot of prominence here and makes us realize how important this responsibility is! We must see the importance of this message. Jesus Christ is the Head of this Church. The God of Ezekiel is the one who became Jesus Christ. The God of Ezekiel 1 introduces the PCG first, after Himself. That is the supreme honor given to us. That honor is given only to those who do this Work in the “last end.”
Every single splinter cult of Armstrongism places themselves directly under the
Church government and books written by various false prophets of Armstrongism are all used as weapons to subjugate their members. Such things always remain constant in the Church of God.
