...and probably end in a hug?
The Church knew that in time God would provide two prophets for the end-time who would be known as the two end-time witnesses. Back in the 1970s, it was speculated that those two might even be the two who were seen as being the primary leaders of God’s Church at that time—Herbert W. Armstrong, who was God’s apostle, and his son, Garner Ted Armstrong, the leading evangelist at that time. However, they were not those witnesses, and those two witnesses would not come on the scene until nearly three decades later.
When people read about the Seals of Revelation, everyone in the past has taken them to mean that they are all literal, physical events that must unfold. Even today, the true Church that became scattered back in 1994, as the result of a great prophesied Apostasy, has looked upon the seals in only a physical manner. God had not yet revealed those things to His prophets; prophets had not yet been established in His Church. The Church was not accustomed to having any such thing as prophets in it.
When God began to reveal the true meaning of the Seals of Revelation to me, as His prophet, the Church that had become scattered did not receive it. They would not receive what was revealed because they would not receive me as a prophet being sent by God. Although it is yet to be covered, God has prophesied that he will offer to 63,000 who were scattered the opportunity to come to see the truths of these prophecies before Christ’s return.
Yet there is good news about all who became scattered and that will yet be covered. It has already been stated that there will be 63,000 people from among all who were scattered that will have opportunity to enter into the Millennium if they accept what God o ers them around the beginning of 2019. Yet even then some will not accept and they will not be given the opportunity to live on into that new age at Christ’s coming. It needs to be stated here that NONE of these will be part of the 144,000.
Most of these people whom God o ers this to will come from among those 600+ organizations that became scattered in the Church. There will also be a very large amount from the third that simply gave up when the Apostasy occurred, but it will be far less than those of the third that were scattered. The least amount that will be awak- ened spiritually and given this opportunity will be among those who believed the lie and who moved back toward traditional Christianity. Their numbers will be rather small.
This sounds just like a typical COGWA or any other COG Feast site. Alcohol consumption goes through the roof during the Feast. Liquor stores used to stock up when COG members came into town at some of the larger Feast sites. Ministerial dining rooms are stacked to the brim with wine, beer and all kinds of spirits that the sheeple can only dream about.
All of the things mentioned in the second paragraph above are the exact things that still go in in COGWA, UCG, LCG, PCG, RCG and other groups. None of these groups are pillars of virtue when it comes to being standard bearers for Christian principles. Their divisive 20+ year track record has proven that
As time continued on, I knew and was then able to accept the fact that I was a full prophet of God. I had come to see many things God was giving me to know that only a full prophet could fulfill. However, that still was not an easy thing for me, but instead, a very uncomfortable one. Even then I did not realize that He had first made me an apostle to His Church, even before being made a prophet. God had raised up one last apostle to lead the Church from the destruction it had begun to experience in December of 1994. I was given charge to raise up a prophesied remnant of the Church that would continue on to Christ’s actual coming.
Then, not satisfied with his role as a prophet, he claims he is the modern day John, the NEW author of revelation.So yes, I am both an apostle and a prophet of God and of Jesus Christ to the Church of God, and to the world, in this final period of the end-time. I am the last apostle in this age of mankind’s self-rule.
Then to PROVE he is the same as John he writes:Yet even more, I am the counterpart of John who wrote the Book of Revelation. He was the only other apostle whom God also made a prophet. John wrote the book, but did not understand the revelation it contained. It was not for his time, but for the end-time that would lead up to the return of Jesus Christ in the Kingdom of God that will reign over all mankind for 1,100 years. Nearly all of the Book of Revelation is about those things that would occur in the end-time which lead to the Kingdom of God being established on earth for 1,100 years.
Just as John was imprisoned and placed on the Isle of Patmos and then given the contents for the Book of Revelation that he wrote, I too am currently in prison as I am writing this book.When John wrote the Book of Revelation, he had no idea what he was writing. It was not to be understood until Ron Weinland hit the scene. Even Herbert Armstrong had no idea!
John wrote the book of Revelation, but God has given to me to show the full interpretation and full meaning of what is written in it. God gave some understanding to Herbert W. Armstrong concerning certain sections of Revelation, which primarily had to do with a great false church and a final revival of the European Roman Empire. It had six previous revivals that have often been referred to as revivals of the old Holy Roman Empire. The sixth one was primarily under the rule of Hitler during WWII. One more is prophesied to rise and has been forming for the past 66 years now. It is prophesied to become ten nations that will form the final configuration of a United States of Europe.
The dates for Winter Family Weekend are December 22-26, and members may begin reserving rooms at Great Wolf Lodge using promo code 1712ucgw. Full information is available at: Winter Family Weekend.
This year’s theme will be “In The World, But Not Of It.”
Although we had believed Christ would return in 2012, it will still be a Pentecost when he returns—Pentecost of 2019! There is great purpose “why” he did not return then, and that will be thoroughly explained. Although many ridicule and mock this change, and use it to try and discredit what I speak, people will in time become astounded why that date actually did change.
Paul, the apostle to the gentile world, was beaten, stoned, imprisoned, and then kept under house arrest in Rome for an extended period of time before he was eventually killed. Candidly, ever since that time, people have continued in great hatred of the message that God’s apostles and teachers have brought, and as a result, many other leaders of God’s Church have been imprisoned and/or killed.
At the time of my calling, Mr. Armstrong was God’s apostle. He died in January of 1986, and yet to this day the Internet is filled with written content that contains intense hatred for him. Most of what is written contains things that have been contrived, twisted, distorted, and just plain lied about concerning him and the life he lived. Yet it is amazing that most people who read such things “choose” to believe all or at least part of what is written because their mind is prejudiced against him solely due to the doctrine he taught, the truths of God, some or all of which they reject.
There are many who have written things that are on the Internet who had been part of God’s Church at one time, but in time turned against it, just as God and Christ said would happen. These are those who had been given opportunity through a direct invitation from God to enter into a new creation, yet in time began to reject what God was o ering and teaching them. They turned from the grace, the favor, that God had shown to them.
Some of those have gone so far in their bitterness and hatred that they have done exactly what Lucifer did and their minds have now become set against God. God will not force anyone to receive His way of life if they do not want it, even if after having accepted His invitation, they later turn away; that is their free choice. God’s creation within the mind of mankind cannot be completed in anyone who does not want it.
Another thing that began to a ect my thinking, due to the wreck, was what happened right after. Probably because of the mild concussion I received, I can vaguely remember walking away from the wrecked car and up to a farmhouse that was right next to the area of the bridge that I hit. When I walked up to the house, a farmer living there met me at the door and told me he would drive me to the hospital. I was bleeding a great deal from my head because an eight-track stereo player in the car had broken loose and had been tumbling around on the floor board and beating me about the head, and as a result, cut it in several places. That was one beating I really needed, as it literally helped to begin knocking some sense into me, although still very slowly.
I have been blessed for a long time now to be able to readily recognize human nature. I fully understand that the only reason I have been able to see this so clearly is because I am experiencing exactly what was described in the last chapter about a new creation—another spiritual creation within the mind itself. This ability and others that I have been given come from what God has been giving me, as He and His Son work through the power of the holy spirit to transform—to completely change—my way of thinking.
As explained before, that process cannot be created by fiat from God; it cannot be instantaneously brought into existence. It requires the free will of the one to whom it is
offered. It must be one’s own choice, and this individual must be filled with a strong desire to experience a complete change in life in one’s thinking, from the way of get to give, and from selfishness to outgoing love toward others.
Since 1969, I have been blessed to be one of those few, who throughout the past 6,000 years have actually been experiencing that creation and its power at work in my own mind. How can such an experience be shared with others so that they can begin to grasp and understand what I am saying? It is my deep conviction that what I am sharing will begin to resonate with many who will be given the help they need so that they can begin seeing what must now change in themselves and the whole world as God intervenes to change it.
That is why I am spending time explaining some of those things that have happened to me and the profound difference it has made on my way of thinking that is now in unity and oneness with God’s. This same process is what God is about to begin offering to the entire world, for all who are blessed to live on into the Millennium.
This “change” that I have experienced, and that others will begin to as well, is described by the first apostle to the gentile world, Paul, where he states, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be [become] you transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2).
This is an incredibly awesome verse in Romans. It is about that process of a new creation whereby God actually works over many years to help one’s mind become changed—transformed into something completely different in “how” one thinks and reasons.
The Church is learning to give up everything for Christ and His Work. And we are loosing the ability to buy, sell and hold a job! The Work is about to be cut short in righteousness. When the United States of Europe rises up from working underground, they will seek to kill those of the Worldwide Church of God! God's Word reveals it.(Rev. 12:14-17)
But since WW2, that system has been working underground. And since the late 1970's it has PERSECUTED THE TRUE CHURCH! And since the death of God's apostle, God's Church has been scattered due to that persecution. Satan has set up a great sifting machine, and Gods people who hold fast, will COME OUT OF IT FOR THE BETTER! But God says to COME OUT OF IT! Not to stay in Babylon.We, each individually, are being TESTED by God, to see if we truly love Him and His Ways, His Laws and Truth, or do we love this world? Some of your brethren ARE LUKEWARM, and riding the fence, not making known your loyalties. Jesus Christ is going to kick you off the fence, and you will have GIVE UP your life at the chopping block! Something you should have been doing all along for Christ.
Today, there are over 7 billion people on earth, and although you will have difficulty believing what is about to be said, it is true, and will be explained far more thoroughly. As of right now, there are less than 500 adults with whom God is currently working through with the power of His spirit, who are servants to Him as Noah was, and who are being led, guided, and currently being instructed in His ways. The rest of the world has rejected God’s warnings, instruction, and truths that He has been revealing to the world for over 80 years now. With the earth’s current population, the equivalent ratio of those with whom God is working is 1 in every 14 million people.Servants as Noah was...that tells everything you need to know about this epic failure of a cult. Being servants of Jesus is not something his group or any COG seems capable of saying. After all, he is such an inconvenient dude!
How many decades have we all heard this exact same thing. "The church is small since its inception"...not true at all! The church grew and millions have been touched by the words of Jesus and who, in massive numbers, are better Christians than ANY of the Church of God leaders we have today.That Church has been small from its inception. It has been hated, maligned, persecuted, and a vast number of its leaders have been imprisoned and/or even put to death. It has been so small that most in the world have never even known of its existence. But that is all about to be changed, as it is now God’s purpose to make it a powerful Church, and the only Church on earth.
My own background is much closer to an earlier film fromco-directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady: the 2006 documentary , which looked inside a charismatic Christian summer camp for young people that trained them in spiritual warfare (and to an extent, conservative political warfare). That film is hard to watch too.
Whereas focused on the faithful, though, takes a different tack in its examination of an insular religious community (and one that’s more impenetrable to outsiders). Instead of talking to the true believers, Ewing and Grady follow the questioners. The film’s revelations are two-pronged: They uncover much about the Hasidic community, while also more broadly exposing how insular groups keep people in and everyone else out. It’s hard to leave, even when staying is impossible too. Excerpt from : In the moving Netflix documentary One of Us, 3 ex-Hasidic Jews struggle with secular life
Jesus is coming to reign supreme alongside the few hundred followers of Weinerdude. Notice one thing that irritates the hell out of Weinerdude, he is still bitter and extremely pissed that he was found guilty of tax fraud and sent to prison.This is an account of what is clearly expected to occur on June 9, 2019. The long prophesied Messiah, the Christ (both words, Messiah and Christ, have the same meaning), will be sent by God to take control of this earth and to establish His government to rule over the nations. The self-rule of mankind will be brought to an end as the Messiah and his army will take control of all government over all nations. He will do so with great power—a level of power never before witnessed by mankind.
During that millennial period, people will continue to live and then die, as in the previous 6,000 years, except all will live under God’s government and no longer under mankind’s. They will live in a world where justice is swift (not drug out for years), righteous in judgment, and simply just and fair.
There will be no prosecutors or investigators who can twist, distort, and redefine fact in a manner they desire that is often with the sole purpose of winning a conviction, establishing a record to advance oneself, making their own personal judgment of guilt or innocence, and/or from an unjust bias of personal prejudice. There will be no lawyers who defend clients they know to be guilty. There will be no need for the legal system as it exists today. There will be no need for such things because those who come with Christ will know what has happened in all cases requiring matters that need to be judged. Nothing can be hidden from them. No one will be able to get by with lies, cons, deceit, false witnessing, or twisting the truth in any way.
