WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE of THE PHILADELPHIA ERA of The Church of God
How much do you know about God’s True Church? Where has it been? You will be surprised to see the true history of God’s True Church authentically documented. Here are the facts! This surprising truth is bound up in the real meaning of the ‘seven churches in the book of Revelation.’
Here is what Jesus Chris who appeared to the Apostle John actually looks like today, as described in Chapter One, Verses twelve to sixteen, of the Book of Revelation:
“Dressed in a robe down to His feet, with a golden sash around His chest. His head and hair are white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes look like blazing fire. His feet are like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice is like the sound of rushing water, His face is like the sun shining in full strength!”
Written To The Seven Churches of God
In Revelation 1:12-13. John sees a vision of seven candlesticks and Jesus Christ standing in their midst.
The Bible interprets the seven candlesticks to mean seven particular church congregations, v 20. Jesus Christ is pictured as dwelling in the Seven Churches as though they were a type of the entire Church.
They were typical of general conditions in the one true Church of God anywhere. That is why we today are told to hear what God’s Spirit says to all the seven Churches.
Those seven Churches, each with its own particular characteristics, were chosen because of location in successive order on a long mail route, and were typical of seven successive states of the true Church of God throughout all ages.
A Very Wrong Supposition
Everyone has supposed that following the Apostolic Church, these Seven Churches picture the course of history in the Greek and Roman Catholic and the Protestant churches, the churches of the god of this world!
These two chapters of Revelation picture, and convey God’s message to the true Church of God, the Church in which Christ lives and works, the Church which is His body, the Church He uses!
It is the Church which was scattered, persecuted, many of whose members have been martyred. This Church is composed of members who, even though led by God’s Spirit, yet are human and therefore not perfect.
In the message to each of these Seven Churches, Jesus Christ has a word of correction.
In every case He points out things they need to overcome. But they are the people who have and are led by His Spirit, who put themselves under God’s authority instead of human traditions or self desire or "the way that seems right to a man," and who have the true teaching’s of the true Church of God, even though they may have lost portions of it.
Here in Chapters two and three as He dictates this book to John, He gives the future of His Church down through the ages. Let’s begin in Chapter two of the Book of Revelation.
See chapter 2, verse 1: "These things says He that holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks" (the seven churches) Jesus Christ is in these Churches, they are His churches, not Satan’s churches which falsely masquerade as "Christian."
#1. The Church At Ephesus
The church at Ephesus pictured the Apostolic Era of the Church, a Church which met many false apostles but remained solidly in the truth. Rev. 2:1-7.
There were two 19 year time cycles in the history of the apostles during which the truth of a coming world government of God was carried to the old world. It was exactly 19 years from A.D. 31, when the Church was founded to the time that Paul received the vision to go into Europe, just 19 years later!
From 50 A.D. it was another 19 years until the fleeing of the Headquarters Church at Jerusalem in 69 A.D.
In 69 A.D. on the Feast of Pentecost, exactly two 19 year time cycles after God’s Holy Spirit came to them on the day of Pentecost. They were told to flee Jerusalem.
They moved to Pella, beyond the River Jordan. From that time forward the united power of the Church of God entered a new phase to spread the good news of the coming Kingdom of God.
There was no longer a Headquarters Church of God at Jerusalem. The many local churches soon "left their first love."
Shortly after John finished the book of Revelation, the remnant of the true Church was scattered over the length and breadth of the whole Roman Empire.
This fulfilled Jesus Christ’s warning, "I will come unto you quickly, and will remove your candlestick out of its place." Rev. 2:5. This ended the Apostolic Era typified by the Church at Ephesus.
#2. The Church At Smyrna
The Church at Smyrna arises next. It appeared to be dead, nonexistent, yet it was alive, suffering persecution.
This pictures God’s Church during more than four centuries under the persecuting Old Roman Empire.
Besides the true Church there was also a " Synagogue of Satan." (Rev. 2:9) developing during this period.
What Is The Synagogue of Satan?
See Revelation 2:9. "I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan."
A synagogue is merely the Hebrew word for church. Then Jesus is not speaking of a race, but of a Church that belongs to Satan!
This church claims they are Jews. Why? Because Jesus said, "Salvation is of the Jews.” See John 4:22. " To the Jew first, then also to the Greek." Rom. 1:16.
In Romans 11:16-27, Paul explains Israel and the Jews, to whom salvation belonged, were broken off because of unbelief.
Gentiles were grafted in their place. "GOD HAVING THE POWER TO GRAFT ISRAEL IN AGAIN" Romans: 11:17,23.
But once grafted in, they were no longer Gentiles "being in times past Gentiles in the flesh." Eph.2:11.
Now they were all one in Christ, "no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints." Eph. 2:19.
"He is a Jew," says Paul, "which is one inwardly and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter whose praise is not of men, but of God." Rom. 2:29.
So here was a church made up of Gentiles, claiming salvation, claiming to be Jews inwardly, masquerading itself as a "Christian" church.
This synagogue of Satan is the apostate church which developed after 80 A.D. and ultimately became recognized as the State Religion of the Roman Empire.
That Church has had many Protestant daughters which are also Satan’s churches. They keep the same celebrations found in the Roman Calendar.
The True Church Persecuted
The world at this time did not recognize which was the true Church. "The world knows us not." John 3:1.
It is from the enemies of God’s Church that we have scanty records of God’s people, who were maligned as heretics.
For centuries, Catholic writers mention small remnants of the true Church within the bounds of the Roman Empire.
Sometimes they were individuals, sometimes scattered families, especially in the Near East there were still a few local congregations preaching the truth and keeping the commandments.
In the beginning of the fifth century in Asia Minor, the bishop Chrysostom bewailed members of the Catholic Church.
Who, upon learning the truth from the scattered remnants of the true Church, repented of their ways and began to observe "the Feast of Trumpets, the feast of Tabernacles, and the Feast of the Great Day of expiation"-Atonement. (Bingham’s "Antiquities Of The Christian Church," bk.XVI, ch . VI).
As a result of the Council of Nicaea. 325 A.D. Emperor Constantine commenced a Tribulation (Revelation 12:6) with full force. The true Church fled into the valleys and mountains in Europe and Asia Minor.
#3. The Church at Pergamos
The local church John wrote to was situated in Pergamos, the capital of the Roman province of Asia in Asia Minor.
Pergamos was Satan’s seat of worldly human government for that province. Just as the local Church at Pergamos was situated in a city where Satan swayed human politics.
So the next work of God’s Church occurred within the bounds of Satan’s government, the Eastern Roman Empire, where a small body of God’s people was found.
It was about 650 A.D. that God, as if by a miracle, raised up among the scattered remnants of his Church in Cappadocia and Armenia, a man who revitalized His people and taught the truth.
This well-educated man, by the name of Constantine of Manales, was given a gift of portions of the Bible. He was utterly amazed by the truth he found revealed in it after study.
Soon he began preaching and with the help of trained evangelists there were tens of thousands who believed the truth of the government of God and Jesus Christ’s coming rule on earth.
After twenty-seven years of ministry, he was stoned to death in 684 A.D., but an officer, Simeon, sent to destroy him, was so stirred by his death that he became converted and began teaching the truth until he was burned at the stake six years later!
Within another hundred years God raised up a third minister, Sergius, to guide his people who were allowing many false teachings to grow in their midst.
The name given to these people of God by their enemies was the Paulicians. The reports circulated about these people were slanderous and false.
It was not till almost the beginning of the twentieth century that a book called ‘The Key Of Truth’ containing many of their teachings, was translated into English by Fred C. Conybeare.
This partially preserved record of God’s people proves that, 1. They preached the gospel of the Kingdom of God. 2. They believed the Church was founded not only upon Jesus Christ, but also upon the apostles and prophets. Eph.2:20. 3. That they baptized by emersion. 4.They laid on hands for the ‘reception of God’s Spirit. (p.cxxiv)
And 5. They not only "continued to keep the Passover on the fourteenth of Nissan". 6. They also observed the Sabbath. 7. And the festival of Unleavened Bread, pages clxll and clll of ‘The Key Of Truth’.
Satan was angry with these people who understood the truth and kept the commandments.
Knowing that he could not overthrow their faith by force, he corrupted them by introducing false teachers who taught the "doctrine of Balaam." Rev. 2:14.
In Numbers 31:16, you will see that Balaam induced the Israelites to practice idolatry and commit spiritual fornication.
Once again Satan overthrow the Church, introduced false teachers among God’s people. These teachers induced many in the Church to celebrate certain idolatrous pagan holidays, particularly Epiphany, the original birthday of Nimrod, supposedly in honor of Christ’s birth and baptism.
Satan also caused many in the Church to take part in worldly politics in the hope of safeguarding themselves. Mixing with the politics of this world is called "fornication" in Revelation 17:2.
God’s Church is to be a virgin and remain separate from the world waiting for the marriage to Christ in God’s kingdom. II Cor .11:2.
As a result of these sins, Jesus warned his Church: "Repent or else I will fight against you with the sword of my mouth." Rev. 2:16. Most took the warning lightly until it was too late.
Trusting in their worldly political alliances with neighboring Arabs, instead of relying on Jesus Christ’s protection, they were betrayed and slaughtered, one hundred thousand of them!
The faithful few who escaped were driven to Southeastern Europe and called Bogomils.
There they grew for centuries, and spread their tenets into Bohemia, Poland, Germany, Italy, France, and even into England. (p. civ)
#4. The Church at Thyatira
John was inspired to commend on the "Church at Thyatira" the last works of the Church were more than the first. But in the Church was a false teacher (symbol of the Catholic Church) who taught some to practice idolatry.
Jesus warned He would cast them into great tribulation and "kill her children (Protestants) with death" unless they repented. Rev. 2:18-29.
Notice how this description fits exactly the next great expansion of God’s people. As a result of the evangelization of the Alpine regions by the Paulicians and Bogomils of Bulgaria, as God’s people were called.
There arose numerous ministers and faithful congregations. One of these men was Peter de Bruys who preached the gospel of the Kingdom in the South of France. Jones’ Church History, ch. 4, sect. 3.
Two other preachers of the time were Arnold and Henri. They were charged by the Catholic Church with ‘remaining faithful to the whole law of God and of observing the SABBATH DAY! "Ecclesiastical History," by Peter Allix , pp. 168-169.
The Lutheran historian Mosheim says of other congregations of the Church in the twelfth century that they held "a notion that the observance of the law of Moses, in everything except the offerings of sacrifices, was obligatory upon Christians…
They abstained from those meats the use of which was prohibited under the Mosaic economy, and celebrated the so called, Jewish Sabbath.The second tenet which distinguished this sect was advanced in opposition to the doctrine of three persons in the divine nature. Yes, they knew that God was not a trinity, but a family!
A crusade was instituted against many of these people in Southern France. Thousands perished. But when it seemed that the ‘first work would soon be ended’ there arose an even greater leader among God’s people.
The Close of The Twelfth Century
It was the close of the twelfth century. In Lyons, France, lived a successful and wealthy merchant, Peter Waldo.
One day, while in the company of some of the leading citizens, one of his friends fell lifeless at his side. Terrified by the event, he said to himself: If death had stricken me, what would have become of my soul?
Being a Catholic, Waldo asked one of these theologians what is the perfect way. "Answered the theologian, here is Christ’s precept, "If you will be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in heaven…’" Comba, "History Of The Waldenses ," p. 21.
Waldo disposed of his property by distributing to the poor. But from his wealth he also had a translation of the Scriptures made.
In this translation he noticed the command to the apostles to preach the gospel of the Kingdom of God. His mind began to understand the Scriptures. God was using Peter Waldo.
Comba says that "he brought to the study of the Scriptures that practical common sense which had guided him in his business transactions.
The word of Christ was clear enough; for Waldo it was simply a question of furnishing a literal translation." p. 243 of Comba’s "History".
The humble remnant of the Church of God listened to him. Soon many new disciples were coming to repentance. "His disciples became almost as many co-workers for him" (p. 26).
The world called them Waldenses. God’s Church was once again spreading the truth!
A school for ministers was established to provide the training help to carry the Good News of the coming Kingdom of God. Called the "Church of God"
Their enemies admitted that these people proclaimed the gospel of the Kingdom of God, that they baptized repentant believers and obeyed the whole law of God.
But just as there was a false teacher in the local church at Thyatira, so now there were many false teachers and false brethren among these people.
False Teachers Rose Up
Some rose up among the Waldenses teaching that it was right to have Catholics and Protestants baptize their children and to attend idolatrous mass once in a while.
Others committed spiritual fornication by meddling in politics in the hope of avoiding persecution.
To correct his people God caused a frightful crusade to pass over them 300 years after the death of Waldo. Only a faithful remnant escaped.
Once again we see the repeated fact that after a few generations, the local congregations are no longer composed of truly converted brethren, but of unconverted children and halfhearted believers who either go aside into total error in the face of persecution or else are forced to give up their lives for the faith, as Daniel prophesied!
But in 1315 A.D., long before the crusade against the Waldenses occurred, the truth of God was carried to England by a German Waldensian, Walter Lollard.
#5. The Church At Sardis
Now let’s notice what John wrote to the "Church at Sardis.The Church in England and America back then.
The "Church at Sardis" had a name that it was alive but it was dead. Rev.3:1. Only a minute fraction of its people were really surrendered to God and holding to the faith once delivered.
This is just the picture of the Church of God for over 400 years after the preaching of Walter Lollard. Through the preaching of Lollard and other helpers, hundreds were repenting.
Thousands were learning for the first time that Catholic religious holidays came from paganism and that Sunday was not the Sabbath.
But within sixty years after the coming of Walter Lollard, a reform movement under John Wyclif arose in England and nearly engulfed the teachings of the original Waldensian preachers.
After a period of persecution, there remained only a few who kept the faith and observed the Sabbath and the annual festivals.
When confronted with imprisonment for their faith, several ministers gave up the faith even though some of their followers remained steadfast. Cox’s "Sabbath Literature", Vol.1, p.162.
It was not until about 1650 that there were enough Sabbath keepers to establish local congregations.
They called themselves the Churches of God, but the world termed them Sabbatarians and Sabbatarian Baptists.
Coming To America
From England the Church of God spread to America. In 1664, Stephen Mumford, sent to Newport Rhode Island, raised up a small church mainly from Baptist converts. One by one new churches were established through continued help of the churches in England.
But as always happens, after several generations the children take truth for granted and never really surrender their wills and their lives to God!
In less than one hundred and fifty years, the English churches almost disappeared, having cut themselves off from God by turning from His truth and by adopting the name "Seventh-day Baptists."
In America the number of churches gradually increased as the gospel was spread from state to state. But so nearly dead were these congregations that in 1802 many began to organize themselves together into a General Conference instead of submitting to the government of God to preach the true message Jesus Christ had given the true church.
At this serious juncture, most of the local churches joined themselves together to form the Seven-day Baptist General Conference. Some began teaching the Trinity doctrine and the immortality of the human souls.
Several congregations did not become members of the Conference. For another half century they maintained the truth they possessed, although most of them did not go all the way in obedience to God.
John aptly described this period: "Be watchful, and establish the things remaining, which are about to die: for I have not found your works perfected before my God." Rev. 3:2.
The Adventist Movement
During this time the advent movement among ‘Sunday observing churches’ was begun by the uninspired William Miller. In 1843 several followers of Miller in Washington, and New Hampshire, became acquainted with the truth of the Sabbath.
It was not until after the miserable disappointment of 1844, however, that the general body of adventists had the Sabbath called to their attention.
A small number accepted the Sabbath and soon united with the few remaining Churches of God who refused to be affiliated with the Seventh-day Baptist Conference.
They called themselves the ‘Church of God’ and began publishing " The Advent Review and Sabbath Herald." Their first songbook was dedicated to "The Church of God” scattered abroad.
With each passing year, new and different doctrines were being introduced to explain away the adventist failure of October 22nd. 1844. This was the mistaken teaching that Christ would return at that time.
Finally, a meeting was held in Battle Creek, Michigan, Sep 28th. through October 1st. 1860.
This conference also took into consideration the subject of a name by which our people should be called," wrote Loughborough on page 351 of the "Great Second Advent Movement.
This again caused disagreement, some pleading for one name and some for another. The "Church of God" being proposed, objected to on the ground that it gave none of the distinctive features of our faith.
While the name "Seventh-day Adventist" would not only set forth our faith in the near coming of Christ, but would also show that we were observers of the Seventh-day Sabbath. So unanimous was the assembly in favor of the latter name that when put to a vote only one man voted against, and he soon after withdrew his objection.
In the spring of 1861 another conference was held in an unscriptural effort to reorganize local congregations.
The following covenant was recommended for this new church organization: "We, the undersigned, hereby associated ourselves together as a church, taking the name of Seventh Day Adventists. Once again men forgot that they cannot organize themselves into the Church of God. They can only organize themselves out of the Church of God!
A Remaining Remnant!
When this new name was being forced on the churches, there appeared an article in the April 9, 1861 issue of the "Review and Herald" in which a few brethren from Ohio wrote that they would not give their offerings for any other purpose "than the advancement and extension of the truth and the ‘Church of God’.
Within the space of sixty years, two major departures from the Church of God occurred.
The ministers ‘would not strengthen that which was ready to perish! ‘For another seventy years conditions remained almost unchanged. The remaining brethren retained the name ‘Church of God.’
Among local congregations only a few individuals repented and stuck to the truth that had been taught. But most of the ministers resorted to organizing evangelistic work on the pattern of state conferences rather than yielding themselves to God’s government and teaching the truth.
In fact, instead of teaching the truth about the coming government of God on earth, most ministers taught a "third angel’s message," which they had accepted from the adventist people.
The age of the Church of Sardis was over. The church period of Philadelphia was to begin!
#6. The Philadelphia Era
John writes to the Church at Philadelphia: “I know your works, I have set before you an open door and no man can shut it ‘for you have a little strength’ and have kept my word and have not denied my name.” Rev. 3:8.
Here is a Church with little strength, but which has kept the word of God; one which has not denied the truth. Here is a Church which is preaching the truth because of this Jesus promises to set before it ‘an open door’ until the work of this church era is completed.
Here is a Church which Jesus loves despite its weakness and to which He says "Because you have kept the word of my patience (which Jesus interprets in Revelation 14:12 as keeping the Commandments and the faith). I also will keep you from the hour of temptation(trial) which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth." Rev. 3:10.
This verse pictures a Church which is teaching the truth just prior to the last great time of trouble that will engulf all the world.
The True Teachings Went To The World
Jesus chose Paul, who was highly educated, to teach the truth to the Gentiles. He later raised up Peter Waldo, a successful businessman, to keep his truth alive during the Middle Ages.
In these last days when the gospel was to go around the world, He chose a man trained in the advertising and business fields to shoulder that mission.
Paul was struck down. Waldo was shocked by the sudden death of his friend. God three times swept away Mr. Armstrong’s business in order that he might come to understand the truth.
A Door Opens
The time had come for the truth Christ had taught to go around the world!
The door of radio and the printing press was opened to carry the good news of the coming Government of God.
From a minute beginning in Oregon, in 1934, the work of God spread to cover much of North America in 19 years.
In 1953 it went to Europe and the world! This is very significant.
God gave the Apostolic Church just two nineteen-year cycles to carry the truth to the Old World.
He opened a door to Paul at the beginning of the second nineteen-year cycle by which the news of the coming government of God went to Europe. Acts 16:9; II Cor. 2:12-13.
Do you catch the significance of this? It means that this work, this mission to which God has called us all, is not a work of some man.
We are the Church of God to whom Jesus committed the greatest task ever to fall upon any man, the carrying of His truth, the Good News of the coming Kingdom of God, to all nations.
Members of The Church of God have "little strength," but God has set before us “an open door which no man can shut”.
We must use that door! We must become zealous, working, praying, studying, giving tithes and offerings as we have never given before, so that this truth can continue to go in power around the world!
The Splintering of Christ’s Body!
Mr Armstrong died in 1986 after serving God for more than fifty years during which time the teachings of the Church of God had been heard around the world.
Following his death church leadership temporarily fell into the hands of unconverted men.
Senior Evangelists of the Philadelphia Era Council of Elders established an alternate Church Leadership in an attempt to keep the hundreds of Ministers and Thousands of Members of the Body of Christ together.
But after talks, the second and third generation Evangelists and hundreds of Ministers refused to bring the many thousands of God’s People under the leadership Jesus Christ had established.
This single decision caused the greatest splintering of the Body of Jesus Christ in the history of the Church of God!
Following that fatal refusal to come under proper Church authority by God’s Council of Elders, some of these second and third generation Evangelists and Ministers began to splinter the Church of God!!!
The beginning of the Laodicean Church Era would develop as these church groups failed to grow and then fell asleep. Jesus Christ refers to them at this point in Church history in Matthew Chapter 25, with only half recovering their ability to stay spiritually awake.
Ninety Percent of the Millions of Tithe money coming in began to be used up within these Church groups.
These Millions should have been used to buy MEDIA TIME on thousands of Radio and Television stations, using the “Open Door” given to the Philadelphia Era!
The present day Leading Evangelists, Pastor Generals, and Presidents, of the larger church splinter groups have followed the example of modern day Charities. Spending only TEN PERCENT OR LESS to be seen to be doing a work!
This is how they keep the Millions of Tithe money coming in, but not achieving the work of the Philadelphia Era.
The half billion in the US, Britain, Canada, Australian, New Zealand, Western and North-Western Europe, Ireland, the State of Israel, all descendant nations of Israel, have NOT been reached, and neither has the world’s population!
And now with no financial sacrifice being made, the attitude of these church leaders is as Christ describes them, feeling “rich and increased with goods and in need of nothing.”
But in reality they have become “Poor, and retched, and blind” not seeing their true spiritual condition!
THE CALL TO AWAKE!
In Matthew Chapter 25, Jesus Christ tells us that at this time the entire Church of God has fallen spiritually asleep, this began following Mr. Armstrong’s death.
IF YOU WILL READ WHAT JESUS CHRIST EXPLAINS IN MATTHEW 25, ALL SLEEP AND ARE AWAKENED!
TODAY THESE CHURCH LEADERS HAVE BECOME AWARE THAT A CALL TO AWAKE HAS GONE OUT FROM HERE!
BUT THESE MEN REFUSE TO CHANGE THEIR WAYS, TO BEGIN SPENDING THE NECESSARY MILLIONS TO DO THE WORK GIVEN TO THE PHILADELPHIA ERA OF GOD’S CHURCH!
IN EACH OF THESE SPLINTER CHURCH GROUPS HALF WILL HAVE RETAINED ENOUGH OF GOD’S SPIRIT TO REMAIN A MEMBER OF THE PHILADELPHIA ERA OF THE CHURCH OF GOD!
THE OTHERS HAVE BECOME LAODICEAN IN ATTITUDE BY GETTING TOO INVOLVED IN SOCIETY.
THOSE OF PHILADELPHIA WILL SEPARATE THEMSELVES AND AN EXTENSIVE WORK OF REACHING OUR NATIONS AND THE WORLD W I L L GET UNDERWAY!
GOD’S PRECIOUS TITHE WILL BE DIRECTED TO PURCHASE MASSIVE MEDIA COVERAGE!
AND GOD THE FATHER WILL CALL PERHAPS THOUSANDS OF NEW PEOPLE TO THIS WORK “NEAR THE END OF THE DAY” SEE THIS IN MATTHEW CHAPTER 20!
WE WILL COMPLETE THE GREAT COMMISSION GIVEN TO THE PHILADELPHIA ERA OF GOD’S CHURCH!
AND THOSE WHO QUALIFY WILL GO ON TO THE WEDDING WITH JESUS CHRIST, THE BRIDEGROOM.
To The Philadelphian Era Ministry
It is time to reunite those truly awake Philadelphians of God’s Church in order to do a real WARNING work!
If you are a Minister in charge of God’s people, not to act now to unite the Philadelphia Era may well cost you your life, and the lives of your flock, in what is about to strike our nations in this generation. Please wake up!
It Is Time To Walk Away
It has been necessary for those having enough of God’s Spirit to walk away from those causing the work to FAIL.
This is the way it has always had to be done throughout the history of the Church of God!
With those having enough of God’s Holy Spirit to separate themselves to carry on the Philadelphia Church Era!
Jesus Christ commands us in Matthew 25 to separate ourselves from those who will remain in the Laodicean condition.
This time the number of Philadelphia will be HALF in these groups, according to Jesus Christ in Matthew 25!
This Critical Point In Time
THIS IS THE POINT IN TIME WHEN JESUS CHRIST IS SEPARATING THE LAST TWO ERAS OF GOD’S CHURCH.
THIS IS WHAT HE IS EXPLAINING IN THE PARABLE FOUND HERE IN MATTHEW CHAPTER TWENTY FIVE!
Come out from under the control of these men who have failed us all by not reuniting the Body of Jesus Christ.
And have failed to give a warning to hundreds of millions in our nations, and to the billions around the world, by not using the Millions of God’s Tithe given to them to get this done!
We Will Soon Stand Before God
As the Church of God, we will soon stand before Him to give account. And it will be the Philadelphia Era ‘given the open door’ who must give account for our success or failure!
Those of us still willing to SACRIFICE to complete this task in these final days will serve together with those who labored for decades in the early stage of the Philadelphia Era.
You will be a part of those who will serve in The Government of God to be established by Jesus Christ upon his return.
THE REWARD FOR THOSE SUPPORTING THIS LAST MINUTE WARNING ARE DESCRIBED IN MATTHEW 25:14-30.
We must act now to complete the work given to the Philadelphia Era. Are you willing to support this last minute WARNING to our nations and to the world?
No other Church Era has been given this responsibility, or is promised such a tremendous reward! Please play your part.
The Modern Day MEDIA Way!
Here is how to reach this generation of America, Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the world!
See these 60 second Soundbites on the Homepage made to run on Drive Time Radio, and 24/7 on Radio and Television.
‘A Thousand Years Of World Peace’ ‘Massive Drought’ ‘God’s 7000 Year Plan’ ‘The Reason For Human Life’ ‘Truths Of God’s True Church’ ‘What Are God’s True Holy Days’ ‘EU Middle-East Invasion’ ‘The US And Britain In Prophecy’ ‘From Jerusalem To London’ ‘Beyond Brexit’ ‘A Warning For The Deutschlander’s’ ‘EU-German Nukes!’ and more.
We need to change our presentation in the 21st Century!
You will not get this Nuclear Age Generation to listen to someone looking like a Sunday Morning Evangelist!
These Soundbites running 24/7 on Radio and on Television, will reach the Hundreds of Millions in our nations. Notice the neutral accent, a little bit American, Canadian, British, Australian, because I lived in each country, with a Scottish speech pattern, acceptable to all.
This cannot be done using only a small fraction of GOD’S TITHE, as these church leaders are doing on a Sunday Mornings. Using only 5.5% of total income by one larger group, and zero dollars by others!
I am Nothing! Nobody! But I am also the owner of America And Britains Future.com, US-Britishfuture.com, GBFUTURE.CO.UK established to represent the Philadelphia Era of the Church of God in the 21st Century.After associating for years with God’s Council of Elders, Mr. Raymond McNair, Mr. Debar Apparition, Mr. Roderic Meredith, and loyal Evangelists, Mr. Carl McNair, Mr. Dean Wilson, and Mr. Colin Adair, all now deceased, I am following in their footsteps.
My mission statement is to reach our nation’s and the world with the warning Jesus Christ wants them to receive!
NOT BUYING TIME ON SUNDAY RELIGIOUS TV COMPETING FOR MEMBERS, AND KEEPING THESE IN BUSINESS!
Do you tune in to these religious channels? No, probably not, neither does any average American, Canadian, Australian, or New Zealander, certainly not the British.
But this is all these men have been offering on Jesus Christ’s behalf most of the time! Shame on YOU!
You will wake up in the soon coming destruction of our cities, and in national captivity! Please wake up now!
#7. The Laodicean Era
This is the time of the end of the age of man’s rule on earth, when prophecies hidden for ages have been revealed.
Truth has been restored, knowledge has rapidly increased. But knowledge brings responsibility; it becomes dangerous if not rightly handled.
Now notice Jesus Christ’s last warning to His Church! At the very close of this age, when the work of spreading the truth is almost finished.
Jesus addressed yet another Church work, the “Church at Laodicea ” “I know you’re works, that you are neither cold nor hot. Because you are neither cold or hot I will spew you out of my mouth.” Rev. 3:15,16.
Just as the remnants of the Sardis era of the Church existed side by side with the Philadelphia era, the Philadelphia Era will continue its work to the very end time, when another group will appear, a group not accounted worthy to escape the coming tribulation.
The Spiritually “LUKEWARM”
Another separate work has made its appearance, of individuals having God’s Spirit who are spiritually lukewarm!
These are the spiritually weak splinter group leaders and those who will continue to support them.
They have built several church Headquarters, and have built, and rebuilt, expensive Media Centers as though a great work is being done.
BUT THEY REFUSE TO SACRIFICE, TO SPEND THE MILLIONS THEY HAVE RECEIVED TO BUY TIME ON MAJOR RADIO AND TELEVISION NETWORKS TO REACH THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS IN OUR NATIONS, AND THE WORLD!
THIS WOULD DEPRIVE THEM OF THEIR EXPENSIVE HOMES, EXECUTIVE LIFESTYLES, AND RETIREMENT PLANS!
THEY ARE “LUKEWARM” LAODICEAN WHEN IT COMES TO DOING THE WORK OF THE PHILADELPHIA ERA!
JESUS CHRIST REFERS TO THEM AS FEELING “RICH AND INCREASED WITH GOODS, AND HAVING NEED OF NOTHING” BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN SPENDING MUCH OF THIS TITHE MONEY ON THEMSELVES!
BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ZEALOUS ABOUT BUYING UP THE AIRWAVES AS MR. ARMSTRONG DID, THEY ARE DESCRIBED AS BEING SPIRITUALLY “POOR AND WRETCHED AND BLIND, THINKING ONLY OF THEMSELVES!”
THIS HAS BEEN PERSONALLY FRUSTRATING FOR ME TO WATCH OVER THE YEAR, AS I HELPING BUILD THE FIRST SET FOR TELEVISION FOR THE LIVING CHURCH.
YET THEY PAY OUT LESS THAN TEN PERCENT OF THEIR TOTAL TWENTY TWO MILLION DOLLAR INCOME FOR ALL MEDIA PURCHASING AND PUBLISHING!
THINK OF THE FRUSTRATION CHRIST MUST FEEL HAVING TO SENTENCE THIS FINAL CHURCH ERA TO SUFFER.
They Will Not Change
As long as they can live their very comfortable lifestyles on your tithe money they will not change! But time is fast running out on them, as those who are awake now can see what they are doing!
Let those who are truly awake of Philadelphia form new churches, and begin to support this work, so the Hundreds of Millions in our nations will receive the warning Jesus Christ wants them to have!
The Warning To The Laodicean Era!
Here is the warning to any one taking part in this work, who will say: “I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing.” And Jesus Christ will reply: “As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”
THE CHURCH HAS BECOME COMPLACENT, LACKING IN ZEAL, LOOKING UPON THE LOCAL CHURCHES AS SOCIAL CLUBS! INSTEAD OF HAVING YOUR HEARTS IN THE WORK. WRITTEN MY MR.HERMAN HOEH.
With the leadership lukewarm in announcing the soon coming intervention of God to save this world from destroying itself, and so you too may find yourself in the Church of LAODICEA left to suffer the impending horrifying tribulation. WRITTEN BY MR.HERMAN HOEH. SO, PLEASE WAKE UP!
Christ’s Admonition TODAY
See in Luke 21:36. “Watch therefore and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”
Let us all pray and work together to carry God’s truth and this warning to all nations so Jesus Christ will say to each of us, “Well done, you good and faithful servant." Dan 11:33-35.
