The Worldwide Church Of God

John 1:5
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

God's Holy Days

God's calendar begins at the previous sunset... So if it's after sunset the Roman Calendar will be the same but God's calendar will be the next day... I haven't figured out a code yet to have it change at sunset each day so the image changes at midnight each night... Just keep this in mind as you view it....

Many people see my website has a black background and their heart hardens... THEY THINK IT'S A STRANGE THING... And suddenly their eyes are closed and their ears are sealed... But it is just as you read above... The white fonts are symbolically the beacon of light shining out of the world of darkness (the black background)... And as recorded...."And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness (of their heart) comprehended it not."...

As recorded...
Hosea 8:12
I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as A STRANGE THING.

Others ask Why the eagles... As recorded in Matthew 24:28 and Luke 17:37...
Luke 17:37
"And they answered and said unto him, Where, Lord? And he said unto them, Wheresoever the body is, thither will the eagles be gathered together."

Interesting fact ... More than half the eagle population on earth live in North America... So North America is where they gather especially Alaska...

I have No ads on this website and I have nothing for sale... I ask for NO money or donations
As it is recorded...
"...freely ye have received, freely give."
Matthew 10:8

Who Am I

Revelations means to reveal... Here you will find the mysteries and the wisdom of God that have been sealed for over 6,000 years...

1 Corinthians 2:7
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory

HAVE YOU tried to induce others to read my website Perhaps your wife - your husband - one of your family - a close relative, or friend?

Have YOU tried to change others' views? Have YOU started to preach to them?

If you have, you have probably stirred controversy, antagonism - lost a friend, or even a wife or husband.

But if you haven't - DON'T!

I know that many of our readers have been led to understand God's TRUTH. You have learned to LOVE your Creator's TRUTH, which he reveals - and which we make plain. The truth becomes the most precious thing in your life. You become excited about it. You are filled with enthusiastic ZEAL over it.

Before, like all unconverted people, you were SELF-centered, selfish. But now, your mind is GOD-centered. Now, instead of exclusive SELF-concern you have an enthusiastic OUTGOING concern for others. Especially those in your own family - your relatives, your closest friends. You want to share this wonderful truth. You want them to inherit eternal life in the kingdom of God. You want to save them from perishing.

Your motives are well-intended. Your zeal is splendid - but you may be like a woman I knew years ago who had more zeal than wisdom. This woman tried by her TALK to save her husband and her teenage son. But instead of arguing them into it, she turned them to hostility, resentment, embitterment against God! This woman tried to save her neighbors - almost her whole town. She only turned them all against her.

But, some will ask, didn't Jesus tell us we are the light of the world - and that we must let our light SHINE?

Oh yes! But did you notice HOW he said we must let our light shine? Listen: Ye are the light of the world... Let your light so shine before men, that they may SEE your GOOD WORKS... (Matt. 5:14, 16). Notice that carefully! He did NOT say that they may HEAR your good ARGUMENTS. He said that they may SEE your GOOD WORKS!

But now wait a minute!

Should you ever tell anyone about the my website... Yes, by all means - but be CAREFUL how you do it. To just MENTION the website to a friend, and SUGGEST that he or she might find it interesting, is fine. I wish you would. BUT, don't go too far! Don't URGE, ARGUE or try to TEACH religion.

Did you ever notice that my website makes plain the REAL MEANING of today's world news, and that it reports tomorrow's world news before it happens? Your friends may be interested in news, but not in religion.

Did you ever notice that my website is not at all like the religious broadcasts on the air? It NEVER starts out with religious hymns, and a voice in a sentimental syrupy tone. Do you know what happens when such religious broadcasts start? Most people who are tuned in change stations quickly. Either they tune to a different program, or they turn it off. Only the religious audience - a small part of the whole audience - remains. And they probably tune in specially because they are regular listeners to that particular program.

But do you know why millions of people buy and read such magazines as Reader's Digest,. Good Housekeeping, McCalls, etc.? These magazines are filled with articles about people - about their everyday problems - about world conditions - HUMAN-INTEREST subjects. Many are interested in those things. But only a very few by comparison are interested in a sentimental, emotional, religious program that sounds just like a church service.

We want ALL people to hear the good news. So we talk about the things all people want to hear! We talk about the very questions, problems, conditions and subjects that cause multiple millions to buy and read these other magazines, and the newsmagazines.

But we make these interest-gripping subjects far more interesting by injecting life and spark and meaning3j7 into them by use of biblical material that astonishes - in a nonreligious-sounding manner - giving the surprising, eye-opening, practical and authoritative answers to the many increasingly disturbing questions, problems, and happenings of our day. In this way, we open people's eyes to the real ANSWERS to the otherwise unanswerable problems that plague governments, science, and people generally.

People are ASTONISHED to learn that such answers are in the Bible. They are being told by educators that there are no answers. There are NO SOLUTIONS. Then they hear the ANSWERS on our program - answers that MAKE SENSE. It SURPRISES people to learn that the Bible is up-to-date, dealing with TODAY'S conditions, news, problems.

Then there's a lot in HOW it is done. It is done in the professional MANNER of a network news analyst, or a network documentary.

So, if you want to induce more and more people to listen to the website, tell them it is an exciting NEWS, HUMAN-INTEREST, EDUCATIONAL program.

You might do many of your friends a great service by directing them to this web site, Don't URGE them to read it. Don't ARGUE about it or try to talk them into reading it. If it doesn't grab their interest, FORGET IT!

We must let our light shine by our GOOD ACTIONS. I learned this lesson about letting people see your good deeds rather than your good ARGUMENTS many years ago.

Don't YOU Make THIS Mistake!

As soon as I swallowed my bitterest pill of rebellion, surrendered to obey the Mighty God through faith in Jesus Christ, this new Christian WAY became the most happy, joyful experience of my life. Studying the Bible became a passion. I plunged into it with a fierce zeal.

No longer was it an intensive study driven by anger and determination to have my own way. Now it was an enthusiastic study of eager anticipation, literally thrilling to every new discovery of spiritual light and biblical truth.

Now a passion swept over me. With the best intentions in the world, I set out on a vigorous campaign. To me, it was the loving and intense desire to share the wonders and glories of salvation and Bible knowledge with those we felt we loved most. But to most of them, it was an unwanted effort to cram my religion down their throats.

I did succeed, apparently, in talking one sister-in-law into a certain start. I had to learn later it was a false start. As too often happens when a high-pressure salesman talks one into something he doesn't really want, she turned against it all shortly afterward.

I had to learn, however, that, even though I had believed I was a pretty good salesman in my earlier business experience, I was utterly unable to cram my religion down my relatives' throats. My efforts only aroused hostility.

This is a near universal mistake committed by the newly converted. Especially is this true where a husband or wife yields to God's truth without the other.

In the more than fortye years since my conversion, I have known of dozens and scores of marriages that have ended in divorce because the newly converted mate tried to talk the unconverted one into accepting his or her religion. In very few, if any, instances has the unconverted mate been talked into accepting it.

Of all things evil and harmful a newly converted Christian can do, the very WORST is to try to talk your husband or wife into your religion. WHATEVER else you do, let me plead with every such reader, NEVER commit this tragic mistake. If you love your husband or wife, don't do it!! If you love your Savior who died for you, and now lives for you, DON'T DO IT!

Remember these scriptures: No man can come to me, said Jesus, except the Father which hath sent me draw him (John 6:44). Again, Jesus said: Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother. . . . And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother [or wife or husband] more than me is not worthy of me. . . . And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me (Matt. 10:34-38; cf. Luke 12:51-53).

God made every human a free moral agent. Thank God! - no one has power to force on you any unwanted religion.

Every individual makes his own decision. A religious difference between husband and wife is a serious handicap.

But if such difference already exists, do not make matters worse by talking religion to your mate. Do all your talking to God in prayer. Let your mate see your happy, pleasant, cheerful, joyful, loving WAY of life - not hear your arguments or nagging! Allow your mate complete religious latitude and freedom - whether to be converted, religious, irreligious, or atheistic!

I am glad I learned that lesson early. I have had to maintain certain business connections with many people, since being plunged into God's Work.

I never try to talk anyone into accepting Bible truth or being converted. We go to the world over the air and in print, and everyone is free to listen or read - or to tune out or not read. We try never to force God's truth on anyone. That's GOD'S WAY!

Do you know how the apostle Paul won individuals to Christ? Not the way people attempt to do it today. He said, I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some (I Cor. 9:22). When he talked to an unconverted Jew, do you suppose he spoke as a typical Christian, thinking he is witnessing for Christ? Do you suppose Paul said to the unconverted Jew: Have you received Christ as your personal Savior? Oh, won't you just kneel with me right here, dear brother, and give your heart to the Lord?

Or, do you suppose he said: Look here, my Jewish sinner-friend, you're on the way to hell. Your religion is wrong. Every day you reject Christ as your Savior you are crucifying him afresh. You are worse than a thief or a murderer. I'm going to keep after you with my arguments, and drum them into your stubborn ears, and beat them into that stiff, rebellious mind of yours until I force you to become a Christian.

No, that is not the way Paul spoke to Jews. Paul said: Unto the Jews I became as a Jew (I Cor. 9:20, 22). Paul spoke to others from their point of view! He talked to a Jew just like another Jew - from the Jewish viewpoint - showing sympathy and understanding of the Jew's way of looking at Christianity. They were hostile to the idea of Jesus being the promised Messiah. Paul did not arouse hostility - he put it down. He came to them as one of them, so that they were sympathetic toward him, not hostile. He became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews. Even so he gained only a small minority, yet it was a large number.

Perhaps you have had your eyes opened to the fact that sin is the transgression of God's law. Most professing Christians have been taught, and consequently sincerely believe, that the law is done away. Paul was inspired to write that the carnal mind is hostile to God and to God's law, it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be (Rom. 8:7). If you say to your unconverted mate who is hostile to God's law, You're just a rebellious sinner, and your church is one of these false, worldly churches. You've got to repent, and obey God's Commandments - you have not only aroused hostility, you have yourself been hostile, and you probably have broken up your marriage.

How did Paul talk to such people? Listen: And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews.... To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some (I Cor. 9:20, 22).

One of the first principles of successful advertising I learned early in my career is that to get results you must first learn the attitude of your reading audience toward whatever product or service you are advertising. You must not antagonize those whom you expect to persuade. You must approach them from their point of view - not from yours, especially if your viewpoint is contrary to theirs. To win them to your point of view, you must approach them from their viewpoint. Otherwise you only arouse hostility.

I know that these words are addressed to a very large number who have made this terrible mistake. That is why I have devoted so much space to this point.

If you believe God's truth, and your husband or wife does not, NEVER TALK RELIGION to him or her. If your mate normally thinks and speaks only of material and worldly things, then you must speak of material things to your spouse. Don't try to make them read the website or Bible.If my website has, probably because of your own aggressiveness in trying to get your mate to listen, become a sore spot, tune into the website when your mate is not around. Or go off to some private room. Keep the volume turned down. Make every effort NOT to antagonize your husband or wife.

And again, when you talk about it, talk to God in prayer. Let your mate see your good works, in a manner that he or she will naturally approve. Avoid every hostility. Be pleasant. Keep cheerful! Be happy! Radiate JOY! Give LOVE and warm affection! Do everything to cause your husband or wife and everyone to like you! That is the Christian way!
