What's with the COG leaders who think they are now "doubly blessed?" First there was prophet and Chief Overseer Bob Thiel declaring his double blessing and now its David Passover Pack. Which one is more legitimate? Bob Thiel who was "doubly blessed" by a second rate elder in Living Church of God or David Passover doubly blessed by Herbert Armstrong? David Passover feels his double blessing is more significant than Thiel's. Both are really nothing more than unqualified buffoons regardless of who "blessed" them.
48: Let's read Deuteronomy – the end of the book of Deuteronomy right now – Deuteronomy 34 and verse 8. Moses in verse 1; his name's in verse 5; verse 7 Moses a hundred and (twenty); verse 8, "Children of Israel wept for Moses in the plains of Moab thirty days," Deuteronomy 34:8, "so the days of weeping an mourning for Moses were ended." They couldn't enter the Promised Land until they had mourned Moses for an entire month. "And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him," Mr. Armstrong approved my ordination; twice actually, "and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the LORD commanded Moses. And there rose not a prophet," verse 10, "since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face." I'm pretty sure that Moses didn't come back many centuries later and say, "Nobody ever rose like me." That shows you his works were edited; we all understood – that's no real mystery there, "In all the signs and the wonders, which the LORD sent him to do in the land of Egypt to Pharaoh, and to all his servants, and to all his land, and in all that mighty hand."
