You would have to completely understand The Mark Of The Beast before you can appreciate God's TRUE Church...
Map Of Religions... Click on the map for a larger view...
There are over 250,000 different denominations of Christianity.... And there are the Islam, Hindu, Buddist, Scientologist, etc... But where is God's True Church?.... There is a church on about every corner in America... Are they all right? If so why so many.. Why not just one?... Are they all wrong?... Deceived?... This is a very important question that you must prove... As it is recorded "Prove ALL things"
1 Thessalonians 5:21
Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
King David was God's chosen yet God would NOT allow him to build His Temple (Church)... So do you think God would want all these different men of the world to open all these different churches in this world...
1 Chronicles 22:7-10
And David said to Solomon, My son, as for me, it was in my mind to build an house unto the name of the LORD my God:
But the word of the LORD came to me, saying, Thou hast shed blood abundantly, and hast made great wars: thou shalt not build an house unto my name, because thou hast shed much blood upon the earth in my sight.
Behold, a son shall be born to thee, who shall be a man of rest; and I will give him rest from all his enemies round about: for his name shall be Solomon, and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days.
He shall build an house for my name; and he shall be my son, and I will be his father; and I will establish the throne of his kingdom over Israel for ever.
Jesus started his church June 17, 31A.D. On the Day of Pentecost, which was a Sunday. The FIRST day of the week when God starts things... It falls on Sunday every year. It has nothing to do with the weekly Sabbath. This is recorded in the book of Acts chapter 2. For further information see Tongues or God's Holy Days.
Through the centuries God has passed the baton to men of different eras to lead His people.... As they fled from the beast.
God's Church, the actual building or Temple has not been here for men to trample on and pollute except in just certain eras....
Why did Jesus speak in Parables?
And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered
and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven,
but to them it is not given.
And that's why Jesus spoke in parables... And today nothing has changed, as you will see... People have went about DOING THEIR OWN THING for centuries... Making their own laws... Building their own churches and creating their own gods... until now there is a church on every corner all teaching different doctrines across America...
Some people don't believe in any god and teach our children evolution in our schools... Where we come from apes and frogs... No wonder our young people are so confused and act like wild animals.Others believe all these different gods can also live together and reign together. Others believe it's really all the same god but he allows every person to worship him as they want to creating by their own human minds what's right and what is wrong... This human thinking is just foolishness...
SO Where is the TRUE CHURCH Jesus started in 31 AD?
History shows the church Jesus started on June 17, 31ad ran from the beast and disappeared from man's sight into the wilderness of the people for centuries...
A description of the church's struggles through history is recorded in Revelations beginning in chapter 2.
Ephesus Era June 17, 31AD, The Day of Pentecost until the
Early decades of 2nd century
Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.
7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God
During this time... AD64 Nero; Roman Emperor, blamed the burning of Rome on the Christians and persecuted them savagely. Thousand suffered martyrdom. The Jews of Palestine rebelled against Roman authority and were destroyed in AD70. Few escaped to Pella. Lost from worldview this century many TRUE doctrines changed. (Jude 3, II John 10, etc.)
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send
a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst
for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:
Smyrna Era Early decades of 2nd century until the The Dark Ages
And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.
11 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
under the Romans until the 4th century when Constantine
recognized the Catholic Church as the religion of the
"The Catholic Church claimed to be God's church but held different doctrines; essentially THE BABYLONIAN MYSTERY RELIGION. Now being called Christianity instead of Judism (The birth of the word Christianity). In AD 365 the Council of Laodicea wrote in one of it's most famous canons Christians must not Judaize by resting on the Sabbath, But must work on that day. Rather honouring the Lord's Day. But if any shall be found to be Judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ.... A sentence to the most severe inhumane torture and death that your mind hasn't even conceived!
And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
Pergamos Era - The Dark Ages
And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;
13 I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan's seat is: and thou holdest fast my name, and hast not denied my faith, even in those days wherein Antipas was my faithful martyr, who was slain among you, where Satan dwelleth.
14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.
15 So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.
16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.
17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
The people holding to the true doctrines were constantly running from persecution deeper and deeper into the wilderness. Very few remained faithful to the true doctrines because of persecutions.
Thyatira Era 1031AD until the 17th century
18 And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass;
19 I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.
20 Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.
21 And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.
22 Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.
23 And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.
24 But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden.
25 But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.
26 And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:
27 And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father.
28 And I will give him the morning star.
29 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Followers of the true
doctrine preached repentance throughout the Alpine Valleys
of southern France and northern Italy. Many heard and were
converted. Leaders of the True Church were arrested and
martyred, and the True Church went through a temporary
decline until Peter Waldo.
During the 12th century these Waldensians flourished in the Alpine Valleys. Persecution again started and many began adopting man made traditions of the worldly churches. The church again fled to England.
Sardis Era Early 17th century until 1931
And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.
3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Protestant England became
increasingly intolerant of the true church and their
Sabbaths. In 1664 Stephen Mumford a member of the Sabbath
keeping church in London left England for Newport, Rhode
Island. Rhode Island was the first place in the world that
had freedom of religion (founded by Roger Williams; a
Baptist fleeing persecution of Massachusetts).
Stephen Mumford and his wife started fellowship with the Baptist because they couldn't find anyone keeping the true Sabbath at that time. He did not join but quietly maintained his own beliefs. When he realized his fault for fellowshipping with them he and several others left to form the first Sabbath keeping congregation in America. At first they met in private homes. Their records are kept in the museum at Newport. Early in the 18th century they built a simple, but elegant meeting hall.
A second congregation was established in Hopkinton. Several hundred joined the congregation. Several thousand were baptized on the banks of the Pawcatuck River.
Between 1831-1849 William Miller raised up a vigorous new Sabbath keeping congregation. In 1860 at Battle Creek Michigan many thousand were persuaded to follow Ellen G. White of the Seventh Day Adventist, and left the true church. Those who remained moved to Marion, Iowa and then to Stanberry, Missouri. Small congregations sprang up across America. In the 19th century the True Church Of God was established in Willamette Valley in Oregon holding to the true Sabbath, but much truth had fallen by the way through the years of persecution.
Philadelphia Era 1931 - 1986
And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write; These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;
8 I know thy works: behold, I HAVE SET BEFORE THEE AN OPEN DOOR, AND NO MAN CAN SHUT IT: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I ALSO WILL KEEP THEE FROM THE HOUR OF TEMPTATION, WHICH SHALL COME UPON ALL THE WORLD, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillow in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
Exactly 1900 years... a century of time cycles from the day Jesus started his church. The curse and the Famine of hearing the word was lifted...
Herbert W. Armstrong started preaching the true Gospel that had been suppressed for 1900 years... until the day he died on January 15, 1986 (kept from the hour of temptation as it is recorded in Revelations 3:10)..
It has been Jewish tradition for centuries... from time immemorial... during the Passover meal to set a place at the table for Elijah the prophet, symbolizing that they expect Elijah to come, preparing the way for the Messiah. Because Jesus said he would come... and it is recorded in Malachi...
Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet
before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
BUT THE WORLD WOULD NOT KNOW HIM.... Just as they did not know John the Baptist.... And just as they did not know or believe Jesus....
When Jesus, the Messiah was born in Bethlehem the Church of that day did not know that the One they had preached about and waited for had arrived.......... They went on with their religions, traditions and carnal knowledge of God. There were wise men (astrologers) from an eastern religion that feared God and they revealed to the Church that what they were looking for was in their midst.
Where is He that is born King of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. Matt. 2:2
The Bible records only two other prophetic people that knew about the Christ, Anna and Simeon...
Only 12 Apostles believed... The rest of the world did not believe... They followed the Roman Empire... Blindly... Just like today
Again... Malachi Chapter 3 refers to this Prophet to come before Jesus returns...
Notice Malachi 3:1-2...
Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.
2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap
Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD
And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
John the Baptist was the past Elias Jesus was referring to here that they did not know.... And he was already dead when Jesus said this! Jesus was referring to this same future Elias that Malachi spoke of... To come before the DREADFUL DAY OF THE LORD... Which will begin very soon as you will see
Elijah did come and the world missed it... He preached in every nation... to every King.... He restored the truth and restored God's laws in his Church (Temple). In almost every Dentist Office, Doctors Office, Commercial building and private home across America and across the world you would find his message from God... But the world paid little attention. It was The Plain Truth Magazine... Given out freely. You will find every issue of the Plain Truth on this website
Elijah did come and the world missed him... His name was Herbert W. Armstrong
July 31, 1892 Herbert W. Armstrong was born..... On a Sunday..... The first day of the week when God starts things...
Exactly 100 times cycles from the time Jesus started his Church on June 17, 31AD Herbert W. Armstrong started preaching the truth in June of 1931.
A Time Cycle is a period of 19 years...
God's calendar is a Lunar Calendar built around the phases of the moon on a 19 year cycle because the sun, earth, and moon come back into the same relative position every 19 years-a fact of astronomy. In one lunar month, the moon rotates around the earth. In one solar year, the earth revolves around the sun. But only once in every 19 years do they come back into the same precise conjunction. Thus, every 19 years (the combination of 12 common years with 7 leap years [235 months exactly]), the lunar cycle comes back into precise conjunction with the solar cycle.
The True Gospel started on the air with Herbert W. Armstrong on the little radio station in Eugene, Oregon, the first Sunday in January 1934... which was the 20th of Tebeth on God's Calendar...... It was the first day of the week... when God start things...Not the SABBATH
The True Gospel reached Europe and Britain on January 7,
1953 which also fell on Tebeth 20th on God's Calendar again.
IT WAS PRECISELY 100 TIME CYCLES - since AD 53 to AD 1953 THAT THE TRUE GOSPEL WAS SUPPRESSED.
The first issues of The Plain Truth in 1934
The True Gospel had not been heard on earth for 100 TIME CYCLES... 1900 YEARS!
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in
the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of
hearing the words of the LORD
And I will wait upon the LORD, that hideth his face from the
House of Jacob, and
I will look for him.
Then on January 7, 1972 another 19 year Time Cycle from 1953 the True Gospel had reached the entire world as Japan, Scandinavian Countries, etc... The True Gospel went worldwide via the 50th anniversary issue of the Readers Digest.... Again on the 20th of Tebeth on God's Sacred Calendar... A coincidence? .... I THINK NOT
As it is recorded in Matthew 24:14.... And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
The Temple Of God was built in 1972... and the TRUE GOSPEL was preached in all the world.... NOW THE END IS HERE... We are now living in the Laodician era... The last era mentioned in Revelations chapter 3.. Peculiar that this era carries the same name as the Council of Laodicea ..... which was the council held by the Roman Catholic Church in 365AD when they outlawed the Sabbath which was enforced by the Roman Empire with a death sentence of the highest cruelty you can imagine. God's true followers ran into the wilderness not to surface again until 1934
Notice also in Revelation chapters 2 and 3. Each era is given a greater gift because with each era came more sin to overcome.
In Revelations 3:10...God refers to the Philadelphia Era.... "Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth."
Herbert W. Armstrong died January 15, 1986 as Haley's Comet was racing across the sky.... He was kept from this Hour Of Temptation we are now living in today...
Shortly after Armstrong's death, Satan began to creep into the church. Joseph Tkach Sr. was Armstrong's successor and he began to make minor doctrine changes. The most dramatic change came in 1994 when Tkach announced that Christians do not have to keep the annual Holy Days and the Sabbath (Which identifies your God)... These changes came in several steps...
In 1996 the Church proclaimed to be a church reborn as you can see by the cover of the February 1996 Plain Truth issue. And in 1997 the Abomination that made the Church(The Temple Of God) desolate was set up, as you'll see...
The abomination of desolation has always referred to the Temple... Never Jerusalem... For some reason people think it refers to Jerusalem because of Luke 21:20 "And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh."... This verse is common sense... when you see any city compassed with armies you can bet the desolation is nigh... It says NOTHING about the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel as Mark and Matthew did.
After Armstrong died the Abomination That Maketh The Temple Desolate Slowly crept into the Temple of God
February 1996 issue of The Plain Truth released in January..... On the 10 anniversary of Armstrong's death.
Click on the image to read what they had to say about it
Notice in big letters SIN.... God was trying to show you the sin inside this edition...
.... Notice... "The Evil Within" on the front cover.. Again God was trying to show you the evil within this edition of the Plain Truth...
Notice Daniel Chapter 12:11-12
And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate SETUP, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety day...
Blessed is he that WAITETH and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
The Temple of God Built as God's House in 1972
The Abomination spoken of by Daniel was meant for our day as
you can see in Daniel 12:4... The book of Daniel was sealed
to the Time of the end.... It is recorded.....
But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
And Daniel 12:8-10..
And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Most people involved in the church didn't WAIT.... They were too close to the trees to see the forest... Or they were not WATCHING....... The people of the world missed it all together. The joke going around was Honey I shrunk the Church a play on the movie Honey I shrunk the kids
Notice what Jesus said... Notice the wording carefully....
When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place (whoso readeth, let him understand)
Notice it says Stand in the Holy Place.., It doesn't say Jerusalem or Israel! The Holy Place would be where they are keeping all God's Laws and Statutes... A HOLY PLACE..
Just as it says... Notice in parenthesis everyone is not going to understand this verse. And notice this is the Abomination spoken of by Daniel.
also Mark 13:14...
But when ye shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand)
Notice it says "Standing where it ought not!", NOT Jerusalem or Israel! Notice again in parenthesis everyone is not going to understand this verse. And notice again this is the Abomination spoken of by Daniel. So let's count the days from the time the Abomination Of Desolation was set up in the Holy Place.... God's Church...God's TEMPLE....
So Notice what Daniel Actually said...
And I heard, but I understood not then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand but the wise shall understand.
NOTICE VERSE 11-12...
And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
The Abomination that made the Temple of God desolate was SETUP on March 7, 1997 when God's church went to the National Association of Evangelicals to join and except the Mark of the Beast.
Symbol Of Evangicals
Exactly 1290 days later the Worldwide Church of God went to our American Federal Courts to suppress the word of God Outlawing all of Armstrong's works
America's Federal buildings display Moses and the Ten Commandments in stone.
EXACTLY 1335 days later they sold the church To the Beast and
IT LAY DESOLATE! Exactly on May 14, 2004...
The definition for desolate is destitute of inhabitants
Blessed is he that WAITETH and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
But NO ONE watched... And No One waited... Which is me... At midnight I began walking the floors all night waiting... and watching... As I was pacing back and forth suddenly I was outside looking up to the sky and I saw a huge object descending on earth... I thought it to be a planet it was so big... It was brown as dirt... On the bottom it had a long root which split into two as a "y"... I ran back in the house screaming "He's here He's here"... And suddenly I was still pacing the floor... I can't recall going outside... Strange.... I never new what it was until recently when I saw the video from NASA of the spaceship coming out of the sun 25 times the size of earth.... Now I know that's what I saw... SEE Just as the days of Noah for the details....
Everyone else in the church went out and started their own churches... There are a couple hundred of these churches that left God's church... Lost again... Once again their eyes have been closed... They did not WATCH AND WAIT as God warned us to do... And the world went on blindly just as today...
The last concert in the Ambassador Auditorium (Built as the Temple Of God) was on Wednesday MAY 17, 1995... The Auditorium had been used for church and community events until sold on May 14, 2004... ... It lay desolate for 9 1/2 years... On Friday December 17, 2004 The Harvest Rock Church (Satan's false prophets) opened the doors...
A model of the Pasadena Campus and the Temple
The world is looking for a temple to be built in Jerusalem... And the Abomination of
Desolation to happen there.... They also are still looking for the
Great Falling Away mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:3...
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition
I'm showing you it's already here... Open your eyes!...
The Abomination Of Desolation has always referred to the Temple... Not Jerusalem or Israel...
As you probably know the word sanctuary and Temple has the same meaning and has a dual meaning
... One being the church or the congregation... The other being Judah...
Judah WAS his sanctuary, and Israel his dominion.
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the
great and the terrible day of the LORD come.
It's very unusual for there to be a blood red moon on
God's Holy Days...
Especially two in the same year and they to be the Feast Day Of Unleaven Bread and The Feast Of Tabernacles... And double special for it to happen two years in a row... But there is a reason... just as in the days of Pharaoh...
So just as God rescued His people out of Egypt... God will soon intervene to rescue His people from this evil world held captive by the Babylonian Mystery Religion...
This cycle of blood red moons has only occurred three times since the year AD 1.... Click on the image to learn...
In 1996 within one biblical year when God's Church announces their plans to except the Mark Of The Beast
January 15, 1996
10 year anniversary of Armstrong's death... The Church announces they are excepting the Mark Of The Beast
Immediately following within one biblical year there were 3 blood red moons over Jerusalem on God's Holy Days
1st - April 3, 1996 on the Eve of the Passover
2nd - September 26, 1996 on the eve of the Feast Of Tabernacles
3rd - March 23, 1997 on the Feast Day of Purim... Also Comet Hale Bop was passing by....
In 1967 on the Passover (April 24, 1967), there was a total lunar eclipse.... Again that year on the Feast of Tabernacles (October 18th)... This same year Israel fought the Six Day War between June 5 and 10, 1967, by Israel and the neighboring states of Egypt (known at the time as the United Arab Republic), Jordan, and Syria. Israeli forces had taken control of the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan, and the Golan Heights from Syria...
In 1948 on the Passover (April 23, 1948), there was a lunar eclipse.... Again that year on the Feast of Tabernacles (October 18th).... Again on the Passover on April 13, 1949 and again at the Feast Of Tabernacles on October 7, 1949.... The first independent Jewish state was born in Tel Aviv in 19 centuries Exactly 100 time cycles on May 14, 1948.... By 1949, Israel signed separate armistices with Egypt on 24 February, Lebanon on 23 March, Jordan on 3 April, and Syria on 20 July. The Armistice Demarcation Lines, as set by the agreements, saw the territory under Israeli control encompassing approximately three-quarters of the prior British administered Mandate as it stood after Transjordan's independence in 1946. Israel occupied territories of about one-third more than was allocated to the Jewish State under the UN partition proposal. After the armistices, Israel had control over 78% of the territory comprising former Mandatory Palestine or some 8,000 square miles, including the entire Galilee and Jezreel Valley in the north, whole Negev in south, West Jerusalem and the coastal plain in the center.
On August 21, 2017...A total solar eclipse will be visible from coast to coast...It is the first total eclipse visible to only the USA since the country was founded in 1776... A definite sign to The House Of Israel
Now we live in the Laodicean Era.... The Hour Of Temptation as it is recorded
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;
15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.
22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
As you can see from Revelations 3:14 the last era is named after the Council Of Laodician held by the Roman Catholic Church in 365AD... At this council the Roman Catholics outlawed keeping the Sabbath and insisted on the people to keep the sun god's day, Sunday... The canon read....
CHRISTIANS must not judaize by resting on the Sabbath, but must work on that day, rather honouring the Lord's Day; and, if they can, resting then as Christians. But if any shall be found to be judaizers, let them be anathema from Christ.
The whole world continues to follow this canon and has the Mark Of The Beast just as God said...
Today God's chosen are scattered around the world hidden in the wilderness of the people...
And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
Many churches sprouted out of the true church when Armstrong died and when Tkach began changing Church Doctrine... They have had no true knowledge and understanding since Armstrong's death?... NONE... None have received any new revelations since Armstrong's death except I... None counted the days.... None can explain the "Abomination Of Desolation", "The Two Witness'", The 10 horns of Revelations joining the beast in 2004, The "Dreadful Day Of The Lord", etc... Just to name a few... There eyes are closed and they refuse to hear... They are mostly out for their own profits and fame...The largest sector ran by a man named Gerald Flurry wrote a book he calls "The Little Book"... He claims an angel came to him and told him to write the book and told him what to right in the book... Then I ask why should he have to rewrite it several times... changing what an angel told him to write... Simply foolishness... Bless his heart... He is deceived.... Trying to obtain followers... trying to become even richer than he already is...
The rest of the splinter groups are "lukewarm" at best... Constantly fighting amongst themselves... Changing doctrines... Adding to and taking away from God's Word... As it is recorded...
I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:
I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.
So you may ask... Where should I pay my tithes?... Check out Deuteronomy 14
Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year.
And thou shalt eat before the LORD thy God, in the place which he shall choose to place his name there, the tithe of thy corn, of thy wine, and of thine oil, and the firstlings of thy herds and of thy flocks; that thou mayest learn to fear the LORD thy God always.
And if the way be too long for thee, so that thou art not able to carry it; or if the place be too far from thee, which the LORD thy God shall choose to set his name there, when the LORD thy God hath blessed thee:
Then shalt thou turn it into money, and bind up the money in thine hand, and shalt go unto the place which the LORD thy God shall choose:
And thou shalt bestow that money for whatsoever thy soul lusteth after, for oxen, or for sheep, or for wine, or for strong drink, or for whatsoever thy soul desireth: and thou shalt eat there before the LORD thy God, and thou shalt rejoice, thou, and thine household
At Armstrong's death God gave me the job at the age of 27 to keep His Word and lead His people... I had a thirst for the Word of God like I can't even describe... He started pouring wisdom and knowledge in me like I was an empty vase... I had no idea that was what He was doing... I started my website just to have a place to keep my notes... But... God new in this era this is the only way His church could exist... Because otherwise His church would be in the courts every day defending their rights... For example the gay rights and marriage between the same sex... Homosexuals marrying... The church/Temple doesn't want to offend... And the only way not to offend the gays is to not have them in the Temple of God.. Refusing them entrance would be a huge court battle...Of course if a gay man or woman repented and fleed from their sin and was no longer gay... of course they could attend because they would be repented and a child of God... This is just one of the things that would keep God's church tied up in court... There are many more reasons
So God has put me in charge of keeping his Word and publishing it in every nation ... Because He knows I would never add to or take away from his Word... I don't seek riches or fame... I'm just a simple man that fears the Lord....
1 Thessalonians 5:2
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
4 BUT YE, BRETHREN, ARE NOT IN DARKNESS, THAT THAT DAY SHOULD OVERTAKE YOU AS A THIEF.
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
Just as the days of Noah...
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
