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

Revelations means to reveal... Here you will find the Mysteries and the Secrets 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

The Worldwide Church Of God

The Worldwide Church of God of Pasadena California, founded by Herbert W. Armstrong...

As it is recorded...
"...freely ye have received, freely give."

Who Am I?

God's Holy Days

"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world"
Revelation 12:9

Because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.

And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie
2Thessalonians 2:10-11

For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
Romans 11:32

Do you know you were put here on earth for a PURPOSE?

Do you know what that purpose is? Are you sure?

More than three decades ago Queen Elizabeth gave birth to her first son. Everyone in Britain knew - and much of the world knew - that her son was born for a purpose. They knew he was born to become a king. From birth he has been receiving training to prepare him to be a king.

But if I should tell you that YOU were born to be a king - and a ruling king at that - would you believe it? Yet I can tell you on authority of the living Jesus Christ that you definitely were born for that very purpose!

WHY has the real purpose of life been hid from the world? WHY must the world remain oblivious to the real meaning of life?

Search, in this world, for the answers! The world does not have the answers. WHY?

Quest for the truth

Go on a quest for the truth. Ask the question: Is there any PURPOSE? Is there any meaning to life?

Do we know why we are here - where we are going - what is THE WAY - what lies ahead?

Let's ask science. Let's ask education. Let's ask government, religion, technology, industry. Do any of them have the answers?

Dr. Fred Hoyle gave his answer in his book The Nature of the Universe. He spoke of this wholly fantastic universe in all its incredible order and precision, yet leaving mankind with scarcely a clue as to whether there is any real significance to human existence. He wondered why the universe is as we find it, and not something else. Or, he wondered, why is it here at all? He says we are at present without a clue to the answers.

This scientist stands in awe of the fact that man possesses intelligence so powerful that he can penetrate deeply into the wonderful universe, yet he is left without the smallest clue to his own fate!

Did you ever hear of the grandmother who searched over the whole house for her mislaid eyeglasses, when all the while they had merely been shoved up on her own forehead? Scientists look way off in the remote regions of endless space to find the reason for their own existence, when all the while the answers are on their own bookshelves - probably covered with dust - in the one Book they never read unless in skepticism and doubt.

Let's ask the Nobel prizewinner Dr. Harold Urey. He replies: Science gives us no purpose in living beyond having a pleasant existence in one way or another. What, then, do scientists live for? Well, they are fascinated and inspired, he says, by the intriguing and magnificent things that they study.

Yes, one can occupy his mind, for a while, with a hobby, a study or almost any interest. But it's a passing interest. It doesn't answer our questions.

But if scientists may enjoy being wrapped up, for the moment, in the fascinating things they study, what does science give the ordinary man?

But science, answers Dr. Urey, does not give the ordinary man, whose daily life is often drab.., any motive that gives him a feeling of dignity... One of the great needs of this age is a great interpretation which can accept the facts of science and at the same time give inspiration to fill this void.

But I wonder what he really means by the facts of science? Science too often expresses its facts in terms of: We cannot know, but we are coming to suppose thus and so... Or, Many are of the opinion that... Or, It is coming to be believed... Or, We may well assume... Or, Assuming such and such hypothesis to be true, it naturally follows that such and such is a fact. Then all these speculations, hypotheses, guesses and imaginary fables are assumed to be facts. All too often, that is so.

Of course, there are many established FACTS of science - facts that have been proved facts. And if scientists only knew, the true interpretation, which can come only from God, does completely square with the true and proven facts of science. And it does, at the same time, fill that void and inspire to joy unspeakable!

So science does not have the answers. Science turns out to be a false messiah, after all.

Is knowledge the solution?

Let's ask education. Thoughtful men have said that KNOWLEDGE is the one solution to all our ills. Give us sufficient KNOWLEDGE, they say, and all problems will be solved.

Look first at the colleges and universities where this education is being disseminated. Student enrollments are on a rapid increase - at an all-time high. But also there is a rapid rise in discontent, disillusionment, a sense of hopelessness and a what's-the-use attitude.

And there is an accompanying rise in illicit sex, in premarital pregnancies, in mental illnesses, in drunkenness and in suicides. Among students!

Plainly, the instruction they are receiving is not giving them the answers they need.

Then look at the product of this world's education. The world leaders - the politicians, the scientists, the industrialists, the professional people - they are the product. They have the KNOWLEDGE.

Is, then, KNOWLEDGE the solution? Will KNOWLEDGE solve all the problems, end the world's ills? The KNOWLEDGE acquired by these people has not brought world peace. It has not ended hunger and want. It has not brought health, happiness and joy.

Take a few specific examples at random. The more doctors we have, the more sickness and disease there is to be treated. The more psychiatrists, the more mental cases to be treated. WHY? Do the doctors cause sickness, the psychiatrists the mind-slippage? No, of course not. But, neither do they deal with and prevent the causes. They treat the effect, while they let other commercial outlets increase the CAUSES.

So, science cannot give the answers.

Education has gone materialistic and does not have the answers.

The world has tried about every form of government the human mind can devise - but none has brought world peace, universal prosperity and economic security or given us the real MEANING of life.

Technology, industry, the world of business have never provided the answers.

What about religion?

And religion? None of this world's religions know WHY mankind is here, what is his potential destiny, how to achieve it or to be happy along the way.

Do you know WHY none of the world's religions has the answers? It is because NOT ONE of them has for the SOURCE of its religion THE TRUE AND PURE WORD OF GOD!

People suppose their religion came out of the Bible. I supposed that what I was taught as a boy in Sunday school came out of the Bible. Then, more than 50 years ago, when I was angered and challenged into my first real STUDY of the Bible, I was shocked with amazement to see that I had been taught the diametric OPPOSITE of the teachings of the Scriptures!

The Bible teaches that man's potential is to BECOME A KING - an actual ruling KING! It teaches that he is going to rule people right here on this earth.

When Jesus Christ returns to earth in all the POWER and GLORY of the eternal GOD, and makes the reins of government from men, setting up the WORLD-RULING KINGDOM OF GOD, David - the ancient King David of Israel - resurrected to immortal life, shall be king, under Christ, over all the nations descended from the 12 tribes of Israel (Ezekiel 37:15-25, 34:23, Jeremiah 30:9). And who will be the kings over each of the 12 tribes - then, of course actually 12 powerful nations? Jesus has promised those positions to the original 12 apostles (Matthew 19:27-28).

The way to peace

In the world tomorrow - soon to dawn on this world - we shall have WORLD PEACE. Soon there will be universal prosperity. There will be happiness - JOY! There is, truly, a PURPOSE being worked out here below, as a former Prime Minister of Britain, Winston Winston Churchill, said before the U.S. Congress.

To make POSSIBLE a perfect UTOPIAN condition, God created and set in actual living, inexorable motion, a great invisible SPIRITUAL LAW. The law is THE WAY OF LOVE. And LOVE is an outgoing concern for others. It is LOVE toward God - and love toward fellowman.

The BIBLE is the INSTRUCTION BOOK for peace, happiness, prosperity security, joy. Jesus said man should live by EVERY WORD of the Bible. Sin is the transgression of the great LAW. And all have sinned.

The world has rejected God's LAW - GOD's WAY. It has gone the WAY that has brought every curse on mankind. The WORLD TOMORROW will change all that. It will be RULED BY GOD'S LAW!

To QUALIFY to become a king - a RULER in the KINGDOM OF GOD - you must come to really KNOW that law. And the WHOLE BIBLE is a magnification - an elaboration - of its principles.

It is ONLY those who REPENT of their transgressions of God's great spiritual law - the Ten Commandments - and who surrender to and accept as Savior JESUS CHRIST, who can become begotten children of GOD. No one is a true Christian until he has received THE HOLY SPIRIT of God (Romans 8:9).

That is God's gift. It imparts the very LIFE of God. It renews and opens the MIND to comprehend spiritual knowledge. It bestows the LOVE of God - divine, spiritual love. It imparts POWER. It instills FAITH.

Yes, you were born to BE A KING!

There IS tremendous PURPOSE for human existence. There IS stupendous meaning to life!

In the beginning God devised, created, set in actual, invisible MOTION, a living, spiritual LAW. This LAW is a way of LIFE. It is THE WAY God devised to produce peace, well-being, happiness, prosperity, joy.

Then God made MAN. He made man a free moral agent. Man must choose WHETHER to obey God, follow THE WAY that will bring him every blessing, or turn to THE WAY that may seem right, but that brings only curses.

God created man in His very own likeness - same form and shape.

But God is A SPIRIT, and He formed man out of MATTER. Thus if man rejects THE WAY to every blessing for his happiness - if he makes a choice to go THE WAY that brings on him unhappiness, suffering and curses - he can be destroyed.

But God provided for man's salvation. Even if man starts out the WRONG WAY, he can repent, turn around to go the RIGHT WAY of God's law. The SIN of having gone contrary to that law can be forgiven. Christ paid the death penalty for us. We can be reconciled to God, through Christ.

Happiness forever!

And then God has promised to actually beget us, by His Spirit, to be BORN AGAIN - next time born of GOD, as HIS CHILDREN, into HIS VERY DIVINE GOD FAMILY! Then we, too, shall BE SPIRIT. If man will choose THE WAY that produces full, abundant, joyful HAPPINESS, he may enjoy it FOREVER! But he may not suffer self-inflicted curses forever.

God marked out a 7,000-year duration to work out His PURPOSE in having put humans on earth. The first 6,000 years are allotted for man to be allowed to go the way that, in his deception, looks right - contrary to God's law.

Under Satan's sway, man has set up his human society - human forms of government, contrary to GOD'S government. He has set up his own world - with its Satan-influenced, human-produced systems of economic, political, scientific, educational, religious life. Man has REJECTED the way to peace, happiness, prosperity and joy.

But the few who repent, turn to God and His WAY through Jesus Christ, study and learn GOD'S WAY, live that way with God's help, converted by God's Spirit, are, in this life, actually learning to be KINGS whom Christ will USE, in the seventh thous and years, to RULE the world WITH GOD'S FORM OF GOVERNMENT.

For 1,000 years there will be a different system of GOVERNMENT. It will be GOD'S GOVERNMENT. Jesus Christ will return, having received the KINGDOM from God Almighty the Father. He will set up WORLD GOVERNMENT. It will be the GOVERNMENT of GOD. Its laws are found in your Bible.

Christ will assign some, who have learned and lived HIS WAY - the WAY of His government, during this life - to rule over one city, or perhaps five, 10 or 100 cities.

But THIS LIFE is the training period. It is only those who are UNDER and OBEDIENT TO the authority of God's government now - who learn its LAWS, who overcome every other (and false) WAY - whose real citizenship is now reserved in heaven, who then will be assigned A POSITION OF RULE.

Christ is going to rule the whole world - WITH A ROD OF IRON!

The world has had nearly 6,000 years of MAN'S governments - MAN'S education - MAN'S industrial, commercial and economic systems - MAN'S social customs - MAN'S religions. Man has written the lesson in human blood - in suffering, frustration, anguish - in wars, failures - in discontent and emptiness.

Soon he will BE FORCED to start a 1,000-year period under GOD'S GOVERNMENT - with GOD'S religion, GOD's education, GOD'S social customs, GOD'S economic, industrial and merchandising system.

MAN IS GOING TO BE FORCED, against his will - TO BE HAPPY!

The real and true Christian life is, simply, THE WAY OF GOD'S GOVERNMENT. It trains the true Christian to ADMINISTER that government. It trains him to BECOME A KING!

Yes, you were born to be a KING!
