Things continue to not look well in the Oklahoma empire of Gerald Flurry. The deluded man now has taken a new name on himself, in addition to the other self appointed names he thinks he represents.
Flurry recently made a trip to Jerusalem in his new boondoggle of a jet. The money trap is soaking the Philadelphia Church of God dry, but even so, Flurry decided to fly to Jerusalem, just because he thought he needed to. He now believes he is the father to the nation of Judah and doors were going to open up to him. He still believes he is going to be just like Herbert Armstrong and be given audiences with world leaders and kings. Unable to buy his way in to see these leaders, he has to spend his time trying to find another archaeological dig to get involved with. This will please Lil'Stevie as he won't have to go back to Oklahoma for several more years now.
Church of God News reports:
Gerald Flurry has admitted that his recent trip to Jerusalem was a waste of money.
In his member/co-worker letter, dated 11th March 2019, he writes:
“Perhaps God gave us this miracle with the aircraft to encourage us to expect even greater intervention in the days that would follow.
It was not precisely clear to me what God expected us to do on this visit. Brad McDonald and Brent Nagtegaal had prepared a visit with Dr. Eilat Mazar and a tour of the City of David archaeology site.
Nevertheless, I felt God wanted us to step out and make the trip. Isaiah 22:21 says Eliakim is a father to the house of Judah. I fill that spiritual office, an office by which God gives authority to open and close doors according to His will (verse 22). I felt I needed to do more, which is why I decided to go there myself. Again, we must back our faith with works.”
Perhaps he hoped that there might be an open door to sponsor another archaeological project with Eilat Mazar, but as he admits, the purpose in going there was not clear to him.
