Modern day followers of Herbert Armstrong all claim they are followers of the original first-century church and claim the name Church of God as their exclusive identity. Would the leaders of the church in the first-century ever claim today's churches and its leaders as similar to them? Today's leaders and wanna-be leaders make all kinds of outlandish and absurd speculations and demands upon their members that no first-century church leader ever would have. From prophetic speculations to dangerous doctrines, these men have lied through their teeth for decades and still do.
The difference today in the Church of God with these false prophets and teachers of prophetic lies is that they have to qualify all of their utterances with "IF".
Dave Pack and Gerald Flurry have made all kinds of prophetic utterances but qualify it with an "IF." That way they cover their asses when their stupidity does not happen. This is what James Malm does every time he utters one of his prophetic lies:
I have been warning of this multi front war which would change regional realities towards the 1 Thess 5:3 peace deal for the past ten years only to be called a false teacher by the various COG entities, now the conflict is finally approaching.
The only questions now are how long this conflict and peace deal will take to work out, and exactly when the miracle working man of sin will be set up in the Vatican.
IF the starting date for the 2300 day [year] prophecy count is correct, the great tribulation will begin at the end of 2018. See our article explaining the 2300 Day Prophecy for a full explanation. 105: The 2300 Day Prophecy Dates the Coming of Christ
Be very careful here, I wrote that “IF the starting date of the 2300 day [year] Prophecy count is correct,” because the history is very difficult and an error in the exact starting date of the count is possible. One thing is certain; we are extremely close and the tribulation could begin near the end of 2018 or soon after that.History is not difficult but the endless lies of COG prophets are hard to defend, yet that is what they do. Every failed prophecy is a tarnish on their name and credibility and they have to cover their asses in order to keep their gullible followers intrigued enough to stick with them. If their dumbed down sheeple believe their qualifiers of endless streams of "if's" then they won't have any problem when their lies happen, one after another. When the dumbed down sheep swallow their lies, they end up believing the following that the "work" is marching forward and that they always must be ready.
Please remember that this work is about much more than the tribulation. This work is about the coming of Christ and the resurrection of God’s faithful, about preparing the bride!
The tribulation is only a signpost revealing the imminency of Christ’s coming and the redemption of the faithful (Luke 21:28).Malm continues his abomination of lies with this:
After this abomination is set up doing miracles in the Vatican, approximately 75 days will be needed for him to bring life to the New Europe and a somewhat shorter time for God’s Two Witnesses to tell the faithful what to do.
At this point it is necessary to say that this working out of these two periods of “days” ending on Pentecost, happens only very rarely. It will happen in 2018 – 2022 and it will not happen again for a number of years.
IF 2018 were to be the year that the tribulation begins, as the 2300 Day Prophecy indicates: Would these 1,290 and 1335 days fit into a necessary period of 45 days between the end of the 1,290 days with the resurrection to spirit coming on the sixth day of Unleavened Bread and the end of the 1,335 days on a Feast of Pentecost when God will pour out his Spirit on all flesh?
The formula works out exactly for the man of sin to be set up in the Vatican doing miracles in Oct 2018 and the tribulation to begin in December of 2018.
Then after the completion of the 1,290 days, on the very next day the 1,291st day, would be the sixth day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread when the resurrection to spirit of the chosen would take place!
The resurrected chosen will then be married to the Lamb before the throne of God the Father in heaven (Rev 15) while the seven last plagues are poured out. They would then return to the earth with Christ (Rev 19), where on the Feast of Pentecost 5 Jun, 2022 (Joel 2:28), God will pour out his Spirit on all flesh and the kingdom of God will be established over all the earth AFTER that DAY ends!
Also see the Pentecost studies [when available] which are presently being updated for Pentecost 2018.
Despite the fact that Malm continues to say "if" in front most of his lies, he is quite dogmatic that everything he says will happen precisely as he says it will. He ends his post with this:
Dear Brethren, I want to make it absolutely clear that ALL of the prophecies point to the great tribulation beginning in late 2018. That said, I also know that mistakes can be made; therefore I will not set any date or declare that this is the year, even though it is highly probable; UNTIL I see the man of sin set up in the Vatican doing miracles.
It is very important to keep an eye on the news and the process of resetting the regional realities towards reaching a Middle East peace deal (1 Thess 5::3) which is a major key sign, and watch the Vatican to see when the miracle working abomination spoken of in Daniel 12 and Matthew 24:15 is set up.
ONLY when these things come will it be the time; and ONLY when these things happen will God’s Two Witnesses appear to tell us what to do. I am posting these things so that as many brethren as possible will be wide awake, alert and at the ready at the appointed time.
Your prayers and financial help are much appreciated and greatly needed, to complete this phase of the work of warning and preparing the bride.Of course, it always boils down to money with these lying pissants. Their prophecies are a sure sign that God is on their side and that you MUST send them money to continue their ability to lie.
