Are You Able to Learn, Unlearn and Relearn? Do You Need All The Answers?

Powerful, Knowledgeable Women Are Not Welcome Nor Are Pesky Kids

Armstrongism has always had an issue with strong women.  Highly educated women were not the ideal for Ambassador College or the church.  Women were to be subservient to all men.  Women came to Ambassador with the assumption they would marry ministerial candidates at graduation and head off to serve in a field church planning potlucks and sewing circles.  Forget ever leading a bible study with other women!

Tom Mahon has been on rant for several years now on how awful he sees the the state of the church that it is in all because of "hireling" ministers.  He has the true answers to set the church back on track.  Just like Malm and Thiel.

He also is getting tired of rebellious children and wild women ruling men.  Women must know their place and children seen, but not heard.

The prophet Isaiah was inspired to write: "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them"(Isa.3:12). He wasn't inspired to write that as a blessing to the nation but a curse. Today, unless all people have been struck by supernatural blindness, they cannot fail to see that a generation of young people have arisen, who cannot keep their own property nor allow others to keep theirs, and who have abandon all sense of decency and good behaviour. So, children indeed have become the oppressors of the elderly, who are afraid to go out day or night.
The prophet goes on to say: "and women rule over them." That prophecy has also been fulfilled. For today, in almost every home on earth, women rule over men; and that is shockingly true even in so-called Christian homes, where the wife is commanded by God to be obedient to her husband. But when we turn to the media and politics, we see women dominating TV and radio, pontificating lots of vacuous opinions, and running for the high office of president and Prime Minister, Yet, the Apostle Paul, lovely called by his Lord and master, "A Chosen Vessel," was inspired to write:"I suffer not( that is, I permit not) a women to teach, nor usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence"(1 Tim.2:12). Then he added: "For Adam was first form, then Eve." The narrative continues thus: "And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression."  
What does that mean? It means that women are more susceptible to deception than men, and therefore should not be in authority. Yet, In Pentecostal, Baptist and other false churches, women are permitted to teach and exercise authority over men, despite the fact that God forbids it. Now we have babes ruling countries or aspiring to high office. And God allowed this because the world has turned away from him. The Oppression of Children and the Rule of Women.

The date that Christ is to return on has been finalized

It's Time Church of God, has set forth the true and final time table for the return of Jesus Christ.  How many of these people will the COG members have to listen to till they wake up and realize they are being lied to? Dave Pack is a liar, Rod Meredith is a lair, Bob Thiel is a lair, James Malm is a lair, Gerald Flurry is a liar...on and on the list goes.  Self appointed false prophets deceiving the sincere members.  Will we also hear this COG catch-phrase at the end of 2020: "The church was not ready.  Christ has delayed his coming."
Tribulation timeline
We know that in order for Christ to be in the grave 3 days and nights, He was killed on a Wednesday. The only year during the time frame of His ministry that has a Wednesday Passover with the corresponding moon, is 30 A.D. 
In our near future, again, the only year that parallels 30 A.D. is the year 2020.  
The two witnesses will be killed on Wednesday April 8, 2020, and 3 days later, April 11, Christ returns. 
Let's, for the time being, just see how the other prophetic times match up.The span from the Feast of Trumpets in 2016, to the day of Christ's return is 1290 days, thus fulfilling the Daniel 12:11prophecy. 
30 days later, (Hosea 5:7) Jerusalem is taken and the witnesses start judging the nations, hence the fulfillment of the 1260 day prophecy of Revelation 11:3. 
The last prophecy relating to those days is found in Daniel 12:12, that being: "Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days." It is exactly 1335 days from the Feast of Trumpets in 2016 to the day of Pentecost in 2020. 
Like Daniel 12:12, we find in Luke 24:49 where Christ told the disciples to "tarry" which means "wait" "until ye be endued with power from on high", which happened on the day of Pentecost. 
The 144,000 from Revelation 7:4 will have been taught during the 3.5 years and just like the original Apostles, they tarry until Pentecost when they too will be given the Holy Spirit. Following exactly the pattern set forth by Christ and the Apostles. 
The time spans between the Holy Days of 2016 and 2020 are the only years in which they match perfectly with the times dictated by prophecy.

BREAKING: Grace Communion International to Move HQ To North Carolina

While we have long enjoyed our home office being located in Southern California, the location in the USA isn’t necessarily a huge factor impacting our international operations. However, when we focus on how we can better serve our US congregations, location becomes a more important factor. Southern California has served us well, yet over time the cost of living has reached the point where consideration has to be given to relocating. It reminds me of an old joke that is still funny every time I hear it. A man walks into his boss’s office and says: “Sir, I’ll be straight with you, I know the economy isn’t great, but I have three companies after me, and I would like to respectfully ask for a raise.” After a few minutes of haggling, the boss finally agrees to a 5% raise and the employee happily gets up to leave.

“By the way,” asks the boss, “Which three companies are after you?” The employee quickly answers, “The electric company, the water company, and the phone company!”

A major consideration for relocation is that we can cut our overhead (i.e., cost of doing business in California) by $500,000 per year. While this may seem reason enough to move out of California, there are other advantages. Our Glendora church property has significantly increased in value; by relocating, we would access some of that accrued equity to go directly into our mission of the gospel proclamation.

Every time I attend any of our regional conferences or visit one of our churches, several members and ministers suggest their location as a great venue for our church headquarters. It is true there are many locations with a lower cost of living.

Another significant factor to consider in relocation is 65% of our congregations are in the eastern half of the continental US.

We are confident we can relocate to an area where the business environment is good for both business and non-profits – in other words a place of economic growth and development. Our management team has been searching for an area with good quality of life and access to more affordable housing for our employees.

After much prayerful deliberation, our Board of Directors has concluded that relocating to North Carolina would fulfill these desirable requirements.

For some, it may seem like an historic move since this is only the third time our headquarters has relocated. Just as our relocation from Pasadena to Glendora ten years ago had virtually no effect upon our churches, this move will be similar. Mostly the impact will be on our staff in successfully relocating.

We are on sound financial footing, and we strive always to be the best stewards we possibly can be. We were pleased when Capin Crouse LLP, our external auditors, gave a “clean and positive” report to the Board in June, 2016. During the presentation of the report, the auditors also shared a “Letter to Management” outlining any suggestions they may have for changes or improvements. The report did not make any suggestions for improvements. The presenting partner shared, “It is unusual to have a letter to management without any suggestions, because we always try to find something!” She complimented management on the Church’s financial systems.

LCG Northeast Men's Training Camp This Weekend: Where The Men WIll Learn to Be Men Once Again

Faaaaaaabulous pink shirts will be provided!

The much anticipated men's weekend is here.  LCG men have been letting down on their masculinity, so they are heading out to the woods to pound their chests and beat a some drums as they rediscover what it means to be a man's man.

Apparently the men of the church have been letting down on their masculinity component and its time for the church to step in and make them he-men again.  After all, how can weak effeminate men ever be leaders in Petra or become god's ruling their own planet?

Northeast Men’s Training Camp 2016August 26-28​  We live in a time of crisis for men. The role, identity and the very purpose for being a man is being called into question. How do we fight the demise of men... as a man? Here’s one way. Come and be part of this unique program this summer. Our spiritual “boot camp,” August 26-28, is specifically designed to build and strengthen men through eye-opening and interactive learning. We’ll learn what it takes to build bonds of brotherhood, serving God, our family and our brethren. It’s time to stand in the gap and take action against the tide of cultural correctness sweeping over our nation.

See more about the masculinity problem in LCG and the COG's.


United Church of God Joins Up With God's Only Doubly Blessed True Leader To Create New Hymnal

Those aging but fun guys sitting at United Church of God's headquarters are starting to let their ecumenical side come forth!  James Malm will be FURIOUS!  They have joined forces with Almost Arrested Doubly Blessed Bob Thiel to help the Continuing Church of God develop a new hymnal for its members in Africa.

The Chief Overseer writes:
It has taken a lot longer than we originally hoped, but finally we were able to approve a proof of The Bible Hymnal in the language of Kiswahili today. 
We would like to thank Aaron Dean, Mark Graham, and others at the United Church of God for their cooperation in providing us their translated music files.  
The African people have been abused for centuries by over zealous missionaries placing Western versions of what they think Christianity should look like upon them.  Now they will be subjected to the tunes of Dwight Armstrong. May God have mercy upon them.

October 11/12 2016 Will Be An Earth Shattering Expereince

Dang it!  There goes the Best Feast Ever!!!!!

It always amazes me how so many church members are adamant that they know for sure the exact time line of the end times:

Whether we believe it or not, this IS going to happen next October.
Revelation 6:14 .... and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.A quake that size will devastate all Island nations with a survival rate of near 0 and mountainous regions won't fare any better. Most other places will have their infrastructure rendered useless. 
What are you going to do when that massive earthquake hits on Oct. 11/12, 2016 wiping out N. America and the "western" country's.That earthquake is going to flatten everything in its path setting off volcano's including the super volcano at Yellowstone. The tsunami's that are created by it will wipe out most coastal communities. 
Starting in this October, most of the population of this planet will lose their life, it behooves us to make as many as possible, aware of the safety God offers to those who support Him and to those that don't. 
This is how it unfolds starting on Oct. 3, 2016, the Feast of Trumpets, it is 1290 days (Daniel 12:11) until the return of Christ on April 12, 2020, it is also 1335 days (Daniel 12:12) until those taken, will receive their blessing on the Day of Pentecost (May 31, 2020).
The two witnesses start their "preaching the gospel to the WORLD (Matthew 24:14)", not to God's chosen, but to the gentles, on Oct. 25-26, 2016 which is known as "The Last Great Day" (Leviticus 23:36).  It directly follows the festival days of "The Feast of Tabernacles" (Leviticus 23:34).
It marks "the conclusion of the annual cycle of public Torah (Old Covenant) readings, and the beginning of a new cycle".  Hence, in this scenario, God has finished His judgment on the nations of Israel and through the two witnesses, He begins His judgment on the gentile nations. Revelation 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, (1260 days), clothed in sackcloth. 

It is 1260 days from the Last Great Day of Oct. 25-26 of 2016, to the day the witnesses are killed on the Passover of April 8, 2020. ItstimeCOG

Notice how the local time of Portland, Oregon is taken into account.  I guess he is warning God's true prophet Dennis so that he has time to get out of town before the tsunami sweeps up the Columbia River after the huge quake.

For example, on the Day of Atonement, Christ will be coming to take His people to the wilderness at midnight on Oct. 11-12, 2016 in Jerusalem, but in Portland Oregon, U.S., that time will be Monday the 10th of Oct. at 2 PM.
That time also marks the time of the first super major earthquake that leads to the horrors depicted in Deuteronomy 28, (famines, plagues, cannibalism, butchery, slavery). 
From the events depicted in the Holy Days, the Great Tribulation, ( when most of the worlds population die), starts on the Day of Atonement, Oct. 11-12, 2016.
We know that those saved from those horrors are protected in "the wilderness", starting on that Day of Atonement and ending after Christ's return in April, 2020. 

Diabolical Cal Culpepper

Posted on Exit and Support:

What about Cal Culpepper's diabolical policy of forcing many PCG husbands to cast off their wives who have run afoul of the PCG Ministry? How is this inhumane and ungodly break up of legal marriages an example of that "beautiful truth, plainly evident within nature"? Ask Cassie Flory if it is a "godly mindset" to force a husband to abandon his wife at the request of a Regional Director with backing by a false apostle all the way out in Oklahoma? How can you define that as "protecting women, the weaker vessel"? How is that love
I think it would not be outrageous to say that in all honesty a right minded and spirit filled believer in Christ will truly see where the real "satanic message" is coming from. There is no "dignity and honor" for a wife in being told to pack your bags and get out, just because a PCG minister said so. 
How many young children will be affected by these forced dissolution of marriages in the PCG? What will be the long term physical and psychological effects on these kids who now have to not only face a divorce (which is traumatic enough), but also have to deal with having absolutely no contact with a suspended/disfellowshipped parent according to Gerald Flurry's standing policy. 
I am sure we all feel a righteous indignation at what is going on in the Philadelphia Church of God. We mourn and pray for the families of PCG victims. Our hearts are broken when we hear of the deaths of young children who are denied medical care and suffer horribly for it.
We know that God is on His throne and nothing escapes His notice and attention. Gerald Flurry and those Edmond HQ man-boys who support him will have to answer to God for their actions: 
One day the nightmare that is called Philadelphia Church of God will end. Christ will return and put down all false prophets and false religion. Our duty until then is to pray and support those who are being affected by the policies and outrages perpetrated by Gerald Flurry's PCG.

The Evil Zionist/Jesuit Conspiracy To Take Down The Church

For decades the rumor mill in the church has been filled with one conspiracy theory after another.  In the late 60's through the early 80's it was the Zionist conspiracy.  The evil Jews were trying their best to malign the true sabbath keepers because they themselves did not keep the sabbath properly and were embarrassed that COG members were doing it right.  Only those specifically in the Worldwide Church of God kept the sabbath as it was supposed to be kept.  This conspiracy theory was fed in part by the employment and elevation of Stan Rader to his lofty positions and Robert Kuhn.  At this time the book, The Protocols of Zion, was widely promoted by church members, particularly in Pasadena.  Many church members actually believed that the extermination of the Jews by Hitler was a good thing, mainly because they did not keep the sabbath and other holy days properly like they did.

Also widely circulating was the belief that the Catholic church  was out to destroy the one true remnant of believers.  They apparently had instructed the Jesuits to infiltrate the WCG and to systematically destroy it.  The Jesuits had personally recruited, through high level meetings and negotiations, all the top leaders of the church.  This included all Pastor Generals, Council of Elders, evangelists, pastors, department heads, local elders and most deacons.  While the Jesuits were busy doing this they were also infiltrating every governmental office in the United States.  The Jesuits were one busy group of guys!

Add to all of this the Masonic conspiracy to silence the truth.  HWA was supposed to be a Mason, as were Tkach,  most evangelists and high ranking pastors.   Why else would the church be so freely welcomed to hold services in Masonic Halls across the country? Also widely circulated was the belief that the Ambassador Auditorium was temple to Masonic mysticism.

All of these beliefs are still widely held by the extreme nut-jobs that have splintered off into various harlot daughters or claim they are non-aligned but part of the true "spiritual organism."

Case in point, from our buddy Timothy Kitchen, God's greatest gift to the preservation of the "truth."

Banned by HWA! Cry babying again! 
Here in a video we see Mike "The Weasel" Feazell's son Jeff Feazell following in his evil daddy's footsteps cry babying about the WWCG "STILL"!! You remember Mike Feazell, he was one of the main backstabbing dissenters with Joe Tkach JR. So effective and tight with the evil one (Joe JR) that he was called "Mike the Weasel". 
This time it's the Weasel's son, carrying on the charade of deception about the Church that they dedicated their lives to try to destroy! They utterly failed as they do not understand what GOD's Church is, as they destroyed only the church physical organization, that is not the "Church".  
This time in making a fake story using mediocre actors (why not the supposed "Real" people? they are still trying to destroy Mr. Armstrong's and the Church's reputation as it over shadows theirs, and, the more they try to destroy it, the more it shines as the Beacon for GOD that HE intended it to do.  
After 30 years, they seem still to feel the need to attack and belittle a man of GOD that dwarfed all of them in GOD's Truth, and in a Work that their puny little evil minds could not comprehend, let alone match! But, GOD's Truth that Work of Jesus Christ that Christ did through Herbert W. Armstrong, and the man himself Herbert W. Armstrong is so powerful and hated by Satan the Devil, and His Jesuit Minions including Tkach, Feasell, and their offspring, that, after 30 years Mr. Armstrong, that Work and Truth still overshadows them and exposes them as the evil workers of darkness that they are! 
It only proves (for like the billionth time!) that Mr. Armstrong was the Chosen Apostle & The Elijah Chosen by Christ!  
and Joe Tkach especially JR and his minions like Mike Feasell were/are just the Judas (Plural) picked to accomplish their evil and their day of reckoning is coming shortly by Christ Himself, so get ready boys, as you can't lie to GOD the Father, Jesus Christ and to the Holy Spirit as you lie to these people, and your day of reckoning will be at hand!
Then, these lying videos will be there to condemn you!

This is all too hilarious!  They take themselves so seriously.  All of this Jesuit conspiracy bullshit is just the tip of the iceberg that the Kitchens come up with. From claiming Dave Pack was demon possessed as a child and killed his baby sitter to the Jesuits taking over the church. Its all one big laughfest.  One thing that Armstrongism has going for it is that it is never boring!

Just so we're clear on HWA's evolving stance on healing, doctors and medication in his latter unhealthy years

".... :In the last years of his life, Herbert Armstrong took a number of heart medications and had a full-time nurse travel with him everywhere he went. He used the medical profession for almost everything.

What amazes me now about this is that he would almost brag about what he was doing. He would write letters to the membership saying things like, "You know, most people can hardly get a doctor to visit their home, but I have two doctors who come to visit me on a regular basis." I found that many of our people were actually entertained by his admission. The tension between Mr. Armstrong’s practice and his teaching almost never registered among some of us. Some of our braver people would come to ministers and pastors and ask quietly, "Is Mr. Armstrong really going to a doctor?" And we would tell them, "Yes, he’s telling the truth!"

In the days before he died, this conflict finally began to sink in, especially with Mr. Armstrong himself. My dad asked him, "How could you take this medication? You’re the one who wrote the booklet that insists God’s people have no need of a doctor if only they obey and have sufficient faith. So how can you be using the medical profession? How do you want me to answer this question that church members are asking?"

The situation was made worse by the way some of our pastors responded to members who did go to doctors for help. Even when members were diagnosed with some catastrophic illness, their pastors might say to them, "The Bible teaches that going to a doctor shows a lack of faith!" Thankfully, most of our pastors were not that inflexible and judgmental – but far too many were.

All of these things finally conspired, I think, to make Herbert Armstrong realize that his stance toward the medical profession had to change. His conversation with my dad about this topic took place in 1985. By the end of January 1986, Mr. Armstrong was dead."

Faith + Obedience = Healing


God is Love--I Corinthians 13

Even a casual read of the Old Testament and even the New Testament gives a conflicting view of God and even Jesus.  
OT God is a jealous god not wanting other gods brought into his presence.  Gospel Jesus is mostly kind, compassionate and loving even to children.  Revelation Jesus never met Gospel Jesus it seems with wrath , vengeance and destruction at every turn of the page.  Where Disciples were to allow little children to come to Jesus, The Two Witnesses, sent by Jesus, smite everyone that doesn't bow to their authority and message.

Whatever "God is Love" means, it reminds me of the billboard in South Carolina that warned, "Love Jesus or Burn Forever in Hell."  Really?  Isn't that like saying, "Give daddy a hug or I"ll kill you?"

Help us all out here and weigh in....

So they say.....

I Corinthians 13

Quite a bit it seems...

Is The Church Filled With Cannabis Christians?

Apparently Church of God members like their pot!  This warning was up on the Herbert W Armstrong TV Archives.

Now we now know why Thiel, Malm and Pack say the dumb things they do! 😈

Satan wants to DESTROY FAITH! Faith in God!  
And he wants to build your confidence and faith in some PLANT, some POISON, some DOCTOR, for you to look to HIM(Satan the Devil) though them for healing. 
And many have decided to turn away from God, to go against the guidance of God's apostle and God's Church, to look to the god of EKRON- this present medical system for healing and cure!!! They have decided for themselves to choose what is right and wrong, taking from the tree of knowledge of good and evil and rejecting the tree of LIFE! 
They have left God's true Church and have turned to another false god. Perhaps some of those reading this article have done this without realizing it! IT IS NOT TOO LATE! You can REPENT quickly and turn to God with your whole heart and get yourself BACK ON THE TRACK! And save yourself from a world of troubles, caused by walking contrary to God and His Will. 
Many have become "Cannabis Christians".  
But God's true Church relies on God for healing.  
True Christians do not need to accept what this world has decided to be their healer or cure-all. We understand how Satan is influencing and guiding them. They have been following their father Adam in choosing of the wrong tree since the garden of eden! But we are called to choose the tree of life! The tree of life has been opened to us! We ought not turn away from God to take of the wrong tree! 
Are you a true Christian? Are you relying on God for healing? Are you trying to rationalize the taking of "cannabis oil" or marijuana, instead of turning to God for healing? Have you been researching yourself for the plants that God did deem healthy that do not contain the damaging effects as Marijuana does? There are HEALTHY alternatives! Alternatives that God created to help our bodies not damage them!
However none can heal but God. He alone has that power! 
But Satan will present LYING MIRACLES in order to cause you to reject God! DON'T BE FOOLED!!

LCG Looks To Internet As Its Saviour and Mouthpiece

In Rod Meredith's recent member letter, after he had his expected sex obsessed gay/transgender fit, he made the following comments about LCG's "Internet television" audience.

In addition to working to grow our “Internet Television” audience, we also strive to increase the reach of our various other Internet and social media platforms. For example, many of you know that people nowadays—especially younger people—go to “YouTube” to watch videos and go to “Facebook” to talk to their friends and even to find the news. According to a May 26, 2016 Pew Research Center study titled, “News Use Across Social Media Platforms 2016,” an astounding 62 percent of adults “get news on social media.” The same study reports that this is up from 49 percent in 2012. As this report also notes, “Facebook is by far the largest social networking site reaching 67 percent of U.S. adults.” Similarly, many people now watch video every day on YouTube, which has well over one billion users, with a majority of those visitors coming from outside the United States. Because we must reach the whole world with the true Gospel, we continue to work hard to use all of these platforms and technologies. As of this writing, our English-language Facebook page now has more than 217,000 fans, our Spanish Facebook page has more than 46,000 fans and our French Facebook page has over 118,000 fans. And our English-language YouTube channel passed 12,700 subscribers and more than 6,700,000 views. Our Spanish YouTube channel passed 22,000 subscribers and more than 4,700,000 views. And our French YouTube channel has passed more than 2,400 subscribers and more than 540,000 views. Very importantly, through these efforts we are reaching people whom we may not reach otherwise, and many of those people are reading and “sharing” Tomorrow’s World articles, telecasts, webcasts, commentaries and booklets with their online friends. We sincerely thank God for blessing our Internet “reach” in these ways, but we know that we must reach the whole world, and so I do ask you to keep praying that He gives us much greater growth in the months and years to come.

Meredith was been fed some  reports that mentioned that young people now get their news and other information from the internet.  Meredith sees the internet use of these kids and their parents as his new platform to exploit.  For some silly reason Meredith has been fed a huge line that Youtube is the way to go. Can you imagine a teenager sitting down and watching a 1 1/2 hour sermon by Rod Meredith or a Herbert Armstrong return? No one, not even an adult will sit and watch a 1 1/2 hour sermon made by some incredibly boring and biblically challenged preacher.  Heck, even LCG members will not sit and watch these videos!

Youtube, while filled with lots of great videos, finds most of its use from cute dog/cat/baby 3minute videos.  The public has no interest in LCG videos.  Its only audience is its own members and COG members from other groups who continue to church hop for information as their own churches are imploding.

Even UCG, considered by many to be the more benign of the splinter groups, can't accomplish much of an internet reach.  10-20,000 "like's" on a video does NOT translate into a witness for their god or its message they claim to preach.  Graceless legalism sucks, and even the non-churched understand that!

Like most things in the Church of God it is already 10 - 15 years behind the times.  In trying to imitate everything that HWA did, they focused upon print magazines, in incredibly boring telecasts, Jelly videos,  whitewashed propaganda Feast videos, and spent time and millions of dollars building monuments to themselves instead of "witnessing" to the world.

Not a single Church of God out there has taken their message to the entire world.  Even Dave Pack with his superfantabulous website has been unable to do so.  Thiel has not, even if he claims a couple thousand members in Africa.  James Malm circles the drain due to the incredible anger and venom that drips from his graceless legalism. Gerald Flurry is more concerned about HWA idolatry, Irish dance and finding the Ark of the Covenant that he has lost touch with reality, if he even ever had it.

All of the Churches of God now look to the Internet to resurrect their message.  The problem is that the internet has DESTROYED the Church of God and relegated to an insignificant corner of the cyberweb.  As more and more web sites pop up with horror stories from these splinter groups of Armstrongism, and the numerous films and movies that have come out about abuse, the COG's sink deeper and deeper into irrelevance.
