Baghdad Dave: Multiplying Steaks, Phantom Vehicles, Bouncing Bullets, Massive Healings and Plenty of Nay-Sayers

Baghdad Dave next takes a jab at ALL the 700 some splinter personalty cults of the Church of God.  There is not one single COG out there that has had healing like have happened in Baghdad Dave's church.  God has spit the rest of the COG out and only heals in the Restored Church of God.

DRAMATIC HEALINGS AND PROTECTION: As mentioned, the Church has recently seen some of the most amazing and inspiring miracles in memory. Since my post-Feast sermon describing how God’s Church could begin to see more of His power through miracles and protection, this has been happening—and in a BIG way! Members have been experiencing an unprecedented instances of DRAMATIC healing and protection! The accounts are now being reported daily, with often several in a single day (three today so far)—and we are smaller than the big splinters.

A 2-part sermon series given January 10 presented 30 PROOFS that mass healings will soon come to ALL OF GOD’S PEOPLE. The Bible is bedrock certain on this truth, which is in addition to the two great truths referenced at the outset. It will be posted several days after the sermons posted February 2.

What are some of the miracles Baghdad Dave is proclaiming?

Phantom cars that are able to pass right though people on the freeway:

“We were traveling down I-95 heading toward Melbourne [Florida]. Another member was driving and we were talking when suddenly a car passed right through us! It was going very fast and never slowed down. 
I was sitting in the passenger seat and the other car passed right through me and the vehicle I was sitting in! It made a whoosh sound.
Woo Hoo!
God is amazing! His protection over us is profound. What happened to us is just another proof we are truly in God’s one true Church.”
 Another phantom vehicle:
The officer told her what had happened since he had been behind her. She had swerved into the other lane and passed right through a semi-truck (while unconscious!). She then passed back through the semi-truck to the right side of the road and came to a stop and parked. The trooper said that although he ‘saw everything that had happened, he could not write it up since no one would believe him.’”
 Bouncing bullets:

While driving as an escort behind a semi-truck, a member in Colombia was attacked by two armed men on motorcycles. They tried to kill him and steal his car. One man shot into the vehicle twice. One bullet left a hole through the door but incredibly missed everything, and was not found. The other bullet hit him in the abdomen. Miraculously, a direct hit bounced off, leaving only a bruise. (Author’s Note: All of us at Headquarters have seen the pictures of the middle of his merely bruised abdomen and the mangled bullet that bounced off.)

God protects members car but lets pagan civilian's car get severely damaged:

When we pulled into a parking lot to assess damage—no one was hurt! The elderly gentleman in the car that rear-ended the two members was bruised on his hand when his airbag deployed. The rest of the group just felt somewhat jarred. The front of his car was crumpled and the radiator was pouring out fluid. The car carrying the first two members barely showed damage to the rear, just scuff marks and two cuts in the bumper. The non-member’s car was severely damaged. The hood of my car was crumpled a little and the grill and bumper sustained damage but I was able to drive home three and a half hours at 70 mph.
Canes are being thrown away!

In the Dayton, Ohio, congregation, a member came to services leaning heavily on a cane. She was in constant pain and barely able to sleep. After being anointed, she stood up and began walking slowly. Soon she put down her cane. The pain was gone!

Baghdad Dave even has multiplying steaks!  Get the bar-b-que ready!

The next story involves a married couple who host Sabbath services in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The service involved a Bible Study with a meal in between messages. The couple had prepared a crockpot of steaks in gravy with other dishes. They had purchased an exact number of steaks for the members in attendance. Just before services, a couple from the Knoxville congregation arrived unexpectedly. Since there would not be enough steaks for the two extra members, the host couple decided they would not eat theirs to allow enough for everyone present. The pastor closed the service with prayer and asked God to bless the food to the nourishment of all. The couple waited until everyone had gone through the food line. When they went through the line, they noticed the crockpot still had steaks in it. They each took one. As they sat down to join the others, they were shocked to see that everyone had a steak. Bewildered, they kept it to themselves. Later, the couple was cleaning up and noticed there were yet more steaks remaining! God had miraculously multiplied the food. We call it “the miracle of steaks and loaves”!
 Next Baghdad Dave claims that the is NO COG in existence today that is having the number of miracles that his group is having.  Not a single one!  Pack your bags Martha!  We are heading to Wadsworth!

The above stories are only the beginning of what we are hearing by the dozens. Sadly, they stand in stark contrast to what is NOT happening elsewhere. Yet they could happen—and eventually will—to thousands who respond to what God plans to do.
Baghdad Dave then says that people will ridicule his claims.  Now WHO would EVER dream of such a thing!  Ghastly days!  What is this church coming to??????

Of course, enemies will seek to play down or dismiss what you have just read (a few already have)—as well as the sermons to be posted February 2. But then they have to—or you might leave them and join us—and that cannot be permitted. Their tactics will work at first, but these efforts to thwart God’s Work will stand only a little while longer.
Baghdad Dave then pulls a Herbert W trick.  Only YOU can work out your own salvation and PROVE to yourself that what Dave says is true.  Even though Baghdad Dave wants it made very clear to you that HIS church is the ONLY one his god is working with in the entire world today.

This letter has brought much proof that God is only working in one organization. But the burden of proof that we are the only true Church and sole Body of Christ rests with neither The Restored Church of God nor me. It is not our responsibility to prove to you God’s government is here—or that the only Work He directs is here. This is your responsibility! God commands His people, “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” (Phil. 2:12).

All of the other Church of God's are nothing but "DEPLORABLE!

Jesus taught, “You shall know them by their fruits” (Matt. 7:16), and shortly followed this with, “Wherefore by their fruits you shall know them” (vs. 20). The fruits of the splinters are deplorable. These organizations are wrought with ever-worsening division, confusion and disagreement—and widespread and worsening doctrinal compromise—truly the blind following the blind. On the basis of fruits alone, all should leave these organizations! Determine to be without excuse in identifying God’s Church, Truth and Work.

Baghdad Dave Announces That There Is No Other Church As Awesome Or As Explosive As His

Dave Pack is going into orgasmic ecstasy today proclaiming his itty-bitty personalty cult based in Wadsworth is the most superfantabulous Church of God EVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVER!  You may need a cold shower after reading Baghdad Dave's hyperbole.

While many or most of our statistics have exploded yet again, most of this letter focuses on the marvelous miracles being experienced by God’s people here. Very dramatic accounts of healings and divine protection are increasing almost exponentially in The Restored Church of God. There are reasons. In fact, I explained a little over three months ago (just after the Feast, where about eight to ten had occurred) that this could begin to increase. AND IT HAS! In almost 50 years in God’s Way, I have never seen—or even heard of!—anything like it in God’s Church. Of course we are greatly inspired, but at the same time not really surprised. Also, this wonderful trend relates to powerful things you will soon learn about THIS Church!
Brethren, we have been seeing certain miracles and healings all along, and they were irrefutable, but there has been an ENORMOUS surge—perhaps eight to ten each week now!!! 
Baghdad Dave gushes about his superfantabulous ministry as the biggest in the entire world!

Never before has Christ’s Church been so poised to launch forward. In EVERY category, we have become solid and prepared for MUCH greater things. Unprecedented tools are being used to reach people in all nations with God’s truth. And God is powerfully blessing His Work! We have produced the largest amount of literature—books, booklets, articles, magazines, Bible lessons, form letters, brochures, etc.—in the history of the Church of God. Apart from the ongoing need to produce our three regular magazines, all of the literature of the Church when it was “on track” under Mr. Armstrong’s leadership is now complete—plus much, much more. This has meant that The Restored Church of God has developed into the largest biblically based publishing operation on Earth today—and in history! This is why our websites are the most comprehensive of any kind of religious website!
Imagine that!  A Church of God has a web site that is the largest in the entire world.  No other church has as much information online or does as much work as Davey and crew!.  Awesome dude!

Did you know that the ONLY hope for humankind is to be found in Wadsworth, Ohio?

But a deceived mankind does not realize that the only true hope for its future is divine intervention. This marvelous hope is going out undiluted from only one place—The Restored Church of God.

Dave sends out another Clarion call for more money to pour in.  His exploding student body in Wadsworth needs a new Student Center patterned after Pasadena's.

AMBASSADOR CENTER: What we call “AC” currently enrolls 91 students, with hundreds of alumni across the globe. The college moved into new classrooms last year, which make use of cutting-edge technology to produce and film live classes. These are also used to hold Ambassador Center events such as its recent sixth anniversary. Several new courses were added this year, along with others being updated. The truly magnificent fifth Envoy (paralleling the WCG’s) is in production and a record-breaking number of copies were ordered in 2014! The Work continues to employ students and alumni in full- and part-time positions. Growth in faculty, student body and curriculum will soon bring the need for a dedicated Ambassador Student Center building.
Then to stick the knife into Rod Meredith and Gerald Flurry's back Baghdad Davey says that the two of them combined cannot even equal Davey's magnificence.

None—and I mean NONE!!!—of the totals and numbers you are reading are seen in any of the splinter groups, which have been trying to draw away God’s people for over 20 years. Maybe no two groups together rival any of these numbers. God is blessing us VERY POWERFULLY!

You can read lots of statistics from Baghdad Davey here.

"Set-on" Controls This World Along With The Adramelech's - But The "Keepers" Are Here To Watch Over You As You Become "Stage One's" And Get Your Mind Upgraded

Forget everything you ever heard from HWA and crew about Satan being the ruler of this world.  Gerald Waterhouse would be appalled to hear what Eric King is now promoting as "truth."

The god of this world is Set-on.

When we talk about the “Keepers” we are talking about what most would call “the angels of God”. These would be the GOOD angels; they did not side with Set-on, the “Wicked One”. We have talked about the fact that there were created beings that were the custodians of our galaxy and of our planet. These are anciently called the “angels of heaven”. They are now broken apart into two classes due to the KT war which broke out some 65 million years ago.-

The “bad” angels which sided with Set-on are still “overseers” of our “fallen” planet and still participate in its evolution.
Don't worry too much about Set-on, the Keepers are here to make our evolutionary journey more enjoyable:

The Keepers are a large group of created entities (unfathomable) which supervise the destiny of our planet.

Now if you would only pay attention to the delusional mind of Eric King, you would have a mind upgrade by now.

Right now those who are true Christians have received a mind upgrade through the power of Divine Mind Linkage. Anciently it was talked about as “receiving the Holy Spirit”. The Apostle Paul invoked the phrase “new creatures in Christ” and he talked about each of us having “the mind of Christ in you”. This was advanced verbage for his time. Now science is validating these and other phrases used by Jesus Christ and the apostles.-

When a human receives the Space Age Christian “upgrade” he or she becomes what we call a midway being. This simply means that the human is now considered a stage one hybrid. Stage-oners have been impregnated with Holy Spirit. When the person receives his/her complete new body they will then become a full Elah [Evolutionary Level Above Human].
So what is the "Keepers" job?

So why did we decide on calling the good angels “the Keepers”? It is because they are the preservers of life and the will of Divine Intelligence that we call them the Keepers. They truly are our friends. They send signals to leaders on our planet all the time. Sometimes they send warnings and use weather conditions to give us wake up calls. Because the weather on our planet is going into chaos due to human pollutions and some natural causes we are being challenged to become concerned. The Keepers want us to pay attention.-

These seraphic custodians (the Keepers) are higher beings of knowledge and truth. We sometimes refer to both classes of angels as I.B.’s (Intelligent Beings). We must not confuse the angels with the lower species of extraterrestrials which exist in our universe.-

The higher classes, the angels, have much more power and control than any other extraterrestrial class. They have greater abilities. When we talk about cherubs/angels using bodies we mean that all cherubs/angels already have higher energy bodies but when functioning in our dense reality of physicality they interface with a biological entity of their choice. In other words they connect to the brains of physical beings in our dimension. This sounds amazing because it is.
 When "Set-on" and the Adramelech's went to heaven to fight with God they were cast back to the earth.  Some of them landed in Arizona where they left a hole in the ground...and when those big bad meanies hit the earth it wiped out the dinosaurs.

If we want to know when the angelic rebellion occurred all we have to do is find the time of the dinosaurs destruction. We now know that this angelic “super war” broke out around 65 million years ago. When war broke out in heaven Lucifer [Set-on] and his angelic horde left their physical bodies and tried to war with God [the Keepers] in heaven. They were eventually cast back down to our planet and they left four giant craters when cast down. One of the last of these craters can be found in the state of Arizona.-

When they were cast down much of our planet was destroyed including the dinosaurs. The earth became covered with dark clouds and many things died. Modern scientists refer to this time as “the KT event”.
So what did these pissed off Adramelech's do once they landed in Arizona? They became stuck in the apes God was playing with as he was trying to create man. That must really have sucked Adramelech's and humiliated God because he failed to stop the Adramelechs from possessing the ape-men.
So now the angelic host that had fallen lost their capability to take back their regular glorified physical bodies so instead God [through Logos] began to create a host of animal like creatures that they became stuck in. Simply put, these angels were placed in physical bodies which resembled ape like creatures. They could stay invisible and get by but they missed their first glorified bodies so they tried out all sorts of animal like creatures. This was the beginning of their punishment.

REAL Christians Will NOT Watch The Super Bowl

God's most important man on earth, after Davey Pack, is back tossing deflated footballs at COG members who will be gathering to watch the Super Bowl.  It's a pagan filthy celebration that REAL Christians would dream of watching.

This coming Sunday is known as “Super Bowl Sunday” in the USA. Most years, the American football (which is not the same as the sport called soccer in the USA) contest known as the Superbowl is the most watched television program in the USA. Between 100,000,000-200,000,000 are expected to intentionally (as opposed to perhaps seeing a news item about it) watch at least some of it today according to various reports.

Self appointed false prophet Bob  Thiel is back spitting spittle about the dangers of football and how it causes people to not "love their neighbor."
9…You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. (Romans 13:9-10, NKJV)
The Super Bowl will do harm to participants in it.
The New Testament also warns Christians against being violent or approving of those that are (Romans 1:28-32), while history records that early Christians would not watch violent sports. Notice one such report from Theophilus of Antioch perhaps written about 180 A.D.:
Consider, therefore, whether those who teach such things can possibly live indifferently, and be commingled in unlawful intercourse, or, most impious of all, eat human flesh, especially when we are forbidden so much as to witness shows of gladiators, lest we become partakers and abettors of murdersBut neither may we see the other spectacles, lest our eyes and ears be defiled, participating in the utterances there sung. (Theophilus of Antioch. To Autolycus, Book III, Chapter XV. Translated by Marcus Dods, A.M. Excerpted from Ante-Nicene Fathers, Volume 2. Edited by Alexander Roberts & James Donaldson. American Edition, 1885. Online Edition)
So, Christians did not believe that they were to watch the violent sports so popular in the second century.

Get on your knees and repent from watching this blasphemy!  But if you sneak a peak remember that Passover is approaching and you will be forgiven.  So enjoy!

Dave Pack: Chief COG Narcissist Announces He Is Going To Make An Announcement

What would this world and the Church of God be like if the most important man in human history did not exist?  Jesus be damned! Dave's the man!

The Chief Narcissist of the Churches of God has been in hiding since the epic failure of his prophecy that three COG leaders would be killed by his god and that all of their members would jump ship to his cult based in Wadsworth.  Two years in a row this prophecy has FAILED.  None of his antagonists died and NONE of their members jumped shipped with their money to join Dave's magical mystery tour.

Stung by that failed prophecy, declining membership and dramatic drop in income, Davey had do delay his mini-me auditorium and his student center.  Davey is now ready to let the world know that the largest and most superfantabulous COG to exist in history is exploding at the seams with new members joining up and bringing in hundreds of millions of dollars with them.

We will be blessed on Friday with his amazing earth shattering announcement.

The annual “Fruits” letter from Pastor General David C. Pack will be made available next week. As in previous years, it is bursting with statistics of The Restored Church of God’s tremendous growth across many categories, as well as staggering eyewitness accounts of God’s blessings and interventions on behalf of His people—way beyond anything we have ever posted. Be sure to check this page.

UPDATED: It Is An ABOMINATION To Put A Premature Baby On Life Support

The perverse "logic" of James Malm continues unabated.  Did you know that it is an abomination to put a premature baby on life support if the mother was not able to complete the pregnancy?

The idea that anyone follows this asshat is amazing! Why are so many Armstrongite cultists attracted to these theologically bankrupt blasphemous idiots?

“If Jesus was produced by the Father’s sperm combining with Mary’s egg we have several issues 
A.  As it is written in spirit there is no man or woman. Spirits have no sex and cannot reproduce sexually.
B.  You have the Father committing adultery with Mary,  Since she was not the Father’s wife and was the espoused wife of another.
C  You are calling Christ a bastard since he would have been conceived by adultery…….
The truth is that man was made after the God kind, and the very Creator gave up his God-hood to be made flesh and was inserted into the womb of Mary as an already complete human embryo by God the Father; in the same sense that a human embryo can be inserted into a surrogate mother today.”
I find your logic for the above two scenarios a little difficult to follow.
If we look at this in terms of a physical marriage, you seem to be saying that with a married couple who are unable to have children, it would be permissible for the wife to be implanted with an embryo from a completely different couple, and produce a baby that was not related in any way to the woman or her husband.
However you also seem to be saying that if the embryo was from the woman’s own egg, and a donor sperm (as would be the case with an infertile husband), then that would be adultery, and the child would be a bastard.
So carrying and giving birth to a genetically unrelated child is OK, but doing the same for a child which has genetic input from one of the partners is not OK?
CORRECT! In your first case the woman is only a provider of care; in your second case she is an adulteress: but you are switching the issue from the Father to the woman. If a man produces a child by another man’s wife; he IS an adulterer!
That is basic; no man may have another man’s wife; and if a man father’s a child by another man’s wife the child is a bastard and the man is an adulterer. To say that God the Father placed his sperm [which he does not have being a spirit] in Mary, an already promised woman; is accusing the Father of either adultery or fornication. It is calling the Son a bastard. Such claims are blasphemy. 
For a woman with an infertile husband to give herself or her eggs to another male in an effort to make a child is adultery; the child is born a bastard; it is an abomination! 
Really this is so basic. if you were infertile would you want another man servicing your wife? and even if you did want that; either by intercourse or by mixing in a test tube; it would still be adultery! 
On the other hand it is wrong to take a child conceived by you and your own wife, and put it on life support for a few months if your wife could not complete the term of pregnancy.
Also the fact that in vitro results in the destruction of multiple fertilized eggs is also an abomination! I know that several women in UCG have engaged in this appalling abomination with the advice of false elders. James

James responds to this post:
I am informed that you have copied a para answering a comment; before it was edited. 
The correct comment response was:
"On the other hand is it wrong to take a child conceived by you and your own wife, and put it on life support for a few months if your wife could not complete the term of pregnancy?  Of course not."
This should have been obvious by the context.

Is Rod Meredith Running LCG for the Benefit of His Family and Friends?

A Comment from the previous posting about the Meredith family empire.

Not long ago, I was shown a letter written by an LCG member to a minister in another ACOG. Here is the letter, with some personal information removed:

Dear [minister’s name]:

[Family member and] I are at our wit’s end and don’t know what to do. [Family member] was baptized in [YEAR], and for a while we were both very excited to hear Dr. Meredith and the other ministers preaching from the Bible, teaching so many wonderful things.

When [my family member] moved to Charlotte, I was so happy for [my family member]. Unfortunately, what we have learned since then has torn us up inside.

The shocking truth is that Dr. Meredith is a constant liar who runs LCG for the benefit of his children and their friends. His children have broken civil laws and moral laws that would get any other member kicked out, but family members keep collecting their paychecks. The sheer amount of sin among Dr. Meredith’s own family members is hard to believe unless you see it for yourself. What is even harder to believe is that not only does he tolerate it, he rewards it with office jobs and big salaries. I know this is so hard for loyal LCG members to believe, but [family member] has seen it and could testify in court if required to. It isn’t false rumor.

Even aside from his own family members, Dr. Meredith puts other liars and abusive ministers in positions of authority, and when innocent people ask him about this he attacks or even disfellowships them. Because of this, LCG’s income is down, and Dr. Meredith may soon bankrupt LCG, just as he bankrupted GCG, though the liars around Dr. Meredith are taking big steps to hide this from members.

Behind their backs, Dr. Meredith says awful things about some of his top ministers. Ambitious younger ministers trash-talk Dr. Meredith and are eagerly waiting for him (and other older ministers) to die, so they can move up in the organization. There is no love or loyalty among the ministers in Charlotte, only competition.

Other LCG members have told us these kinds of problems are found in every Church of God headquarters office, and that it was even worse under Mr. Herbert Armstrong, so we should be glad it isn’t even worse than it is at LCG.

My question to you is simple. If [family member] moves to [Home Office city], will [family member] find more of the same, and become even more discouraged? I am concerned that if [family member] moves and only finds more of the same, the discouragement will be too much for either of us to bare.

Please, no more lies. Is [group name] a place where the leadership sincerely tries to live by the bible, and where people do not get ahead through lies and cruel acts? Or must we wait until Christ’s return to find peace and truth and decency in the ministers we rely on?
