More Evil Than Judas.

Judas spent three and a half years in the company of Jesus, but in that time he didn't learn anything of value from the greatest teacher there has ever been.  So at the end of the three and a half years, the devil put it into the heart of Judas to betray Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.  Money, obviously, meant a lot to Judas.  He used to carry the bag (John13:29) with the money that belong to Jesus and the other disciples, but because he was a thief, he used to steal some of that money, thinking, of course, that no one would detect his dishonesty. But it was at the Passover, that his true malevolence was revealed thus: "After the sop, Satan entered into him"(John 13:27).

Of course, Judas treachery was not a spur of the moment action.  It was carefully planned, in collusion with the High Priest, who like WCG's ministry, were supposed to represent God, and the wholesome teachings of the bible. The narrative runs: Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas, and consulted that they might take Jesus by subtlety and kill him"(Matt.26: 3-4).   

After the plot was hatched, we read: "And Judas Iscariot, one of the twelve, went unto the chief priests, to betray him unto them.  And when they heard it, they were glad, and promised him money"(Mark 14:10-11).  Also, Judas asked: "What will you give me, and I will deliver him unto you?  And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver"(Matt.26:15).

Now if we contrast Judas' behaviour with the behaviour of Les McCullough, the UK's former regional director, and Victor Kubic, assistant ministerial director to Joe junior, the Christian mind is shocked by the similarity between Judas and these two evil men. 
Les McCullough first sent the UK ministry on holiday, and then paid them a redundancy package to betray the faithful members of God's church, as they exited the WCG to join UCG.  He then agreed a £60, 000 severance package for himself, on promise that he won't join UCG.  He banked the cheque, and when it cleared, he went and joined UCG.  He coundn't even keep an evil promise!

Meanwhile, in America, Victor Kubic was plotting to leave WCG, and start UCG.  In 1995, the gang of criminal betrayers met in Cincinnati to start their heresy, which has since poisoned the minds of many, while they continue to fight among themselves for the tithes and offerings of the gullible.

Now when Judas realised what he had done, he brought back the thirty pieces of silver, but it was rejected by the high priest.  But these men never realised the evil they had done, so they keep the money.  That makes them more evil than Judas.

Jesus said of Judas: "It had been good for that man if he had not been born"(Matt. 26:24)  What will be said of all those who kept the money, they were paid to betray God's people?

Peter Shenton lamented that he was only paid £15,000, after 22 years talking nonsense on the Sabbath.

I shudder to think what will happen to these evil men!

Supernatural Blindness.

On the 14 October 2018, the baton of the president of GCI was passed from Joe Tkach junior to Greg Williams.  The ceremony was hailed by a cabal of sycophantic boot-lickers, as significant and meaningful, without saying in what way it was either significant or meaningful.  It was also hailed as the end of one era, and the beginning of another.  But yet again, there was no explanation of the era's achievements, but the hope was expressed of future developments.

The degree of deception that Satan has inflicted on GCI is simply astonishing!  The Sabbath has been abandoned, and replaced by Sunday; the Passover by "holy communion;" the Holy Days by "The autumn festivals;" women and men are now ordained as elders; emphasis is placed on going to doctors instead of relying on God for healing and obedience to the teachings of Jesus have been replaced by the mantra, "we are save by grace," without any understanding of why grace was given to God's elect. 

Of course, Joe junior, as well many former ministers of WCG don't understand that a servant cannot resign from a God appointed office!  There is not a single example, to be found in the pages of God's word, where a prophet, a king or a priest resigned from his office!  Yet, a vast number of WCG's ministers resigned from their office to joined another group, that was able to pay them a salary!  That is astonishing!

Trumpets, A Rebuke and The Alarm of Armageddon.

Tomorrow is the Feast of Trumpets. This feast, like all the other feasts of God, was not properly understood in The Worldwide Church of God, but here is not the place to explain the meaning of the feast. 

Suffice to say, as we are living in the final generation of human existence, the message of the Feast of Trumpets is a message of rebuke to those that need urgent repentance, and the proclaiming of the alarm of Armageddon.

The prophet Isaiah was sent to an unrepentant and rebellious nation thus: "Woe to the rebellious children, says the Lord, that take counsel, but not of me"(Isaiah 30:1). Today, people seek counsel from everyone on earth except God in heaven!. Then God told Isiah, "Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever"(Isaiah 30:7). That time has come! And the message of rebuke from God is, "That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the Lord."  And the ministers of God must "Cry aloud, spare not, lift up your voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgressions, and the house of Jacob, that is, the church, their sins"(Isaiah 58:1).

Will any of the hireling ministers in UCG, LCG, PCG, RCG, GCI, WCG, COG/Hulme or any of the other divided splinters, that hurt people, lift up their voices like a trumpet to tell the people their sins?  Not likely, for the hireling ministers are probably greater sinners than the docile people in the respective congregations.  Plus, these heretical groups don't want to lose members, and the tithes and offerings that provide for the needs of evil men, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is their shame! 

A prelude to Armageddon is being play out this week, in the form of military exercises with Russia, China and Mongolia.  In the 1970s, Mr Armstrong wrote, that a Euro-Asian alliance will be formed to confront the coming Beast Power, which will emerged out of the EU.

The EU is beginning to lay plans for the formation of a political, economic, military and religious union.  This alliance is called in the bible, the Beast Power and the seventh revival of the holy Roman Empire.  It will cause havoc in the world, until it is confronted by a Euro-Asian alliance, led by Russia and China.

When that time comes, you will wish that you had never been born!

1 Corinthians 13:11, What Does It Mean?

The Chosen Vessel was inspired to write: " When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things."

1) How do children speak?
2) How do children understand?
3) How do children think?
4) What are the childish things that men are to put away?

I bet that not a single hireling minister, that was in The Worldwide Church of God, and are now cocooned in UCG, LCG. PCG, RCG, COG/Hulme and all the other splinters, that hurt people, understands the meaning of this sublime revelation, which was given to the Chosen Vessel.

Which Spirit Do You Have?

The Chosen Vessel in his final letter to Timothy, and probably, his final letter to anyone, was inspired to write: "For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind"(2Tim.1:7).  Yet, in 1995 when the heretic, Tkach, introduced the heretical teachings into The Worldwide Church of God, the men who were ordained ministers turned out to be fearful cowards.  None of them had the courage to stand up at the lectern, and tell their respective congregations not to believe the nonsense that was being published in The Worldwide News, The Pastor General Report or on the endless cassette tapes, that were then in circulation.

These men could never have had the spirit of God, and yet failed to speak out.  For the Chosen Vessel says, "For God has not given us  the spirit of fear." Yet, Peter Shenton, Ian Martin and Paul Roberts, who were the so-called ministers of the Birmingham, England, congregation all failed to boldly speak out against the spiritual poison that the church was being fed.  Where was their "spirit of power?" 

Furthermore, what about the spirit of love? Jesus asked Peter three times, and the number three is important, "Do you love me?" and each time Peter said, yes.  And Jesus told him, "feed my sheep."  If these wicked men had the spirit of love, they would have died rather than abandoned Christ's sheep, to feed on the poison of Protestant theology.  These evil, wicked men have got some surprises coming, and no one will be bringing flowers - not even to put on their graves! 

Moreover, what about the spirit of a sound mind? Well, it was pretty obvious to anyone who was truly converted, that the hireling ministers, that were in WCG, and who are now in LCG, UCG, RCG, PCG, GCI, COG/Hulme and all the other divided splinters, that hurt people, were and are ignorant of the wholesome teachings of Christ.  Every Sabbath, they regurgitated the nonsense they were taught by Dr Meredith, Dr Hoeh, Raymond McNair and all the other faculty members that were based at the three Ambassador Colleges.

It was said, that Dr Meredith had a unique understanding of the Epistles of Paul.  If that claim was not so pompous, it would be risible.  To understand the Epistle of Paul one has to be led by God through a process of suffering, that leads to humility and sanctification.  Then one can approach to allegory of Galatians chapter four, the doctrine of election, the mystery of Mechesidec and rejoice and be astonished with the Chosen Vessel, when he says, "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways are past finding out"(Rom.11:33).  What did the great Apostle elucidated, that led him to that inspired exultation?

Can any sensible person believe that these evil men, who were primarily motivated by power and money, had a truly sound mind, capable of understanding any of the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven?  The answer is no, and that means they were not Christ's ministers, but ministers of the devil.

A Major Evil

One of the major evils of the times in which we live is, children dishonouring their parents, by speaking ill of them, failing to visit or help them in any way.

Yet, the the Chosen Vessel was inspired to write: "Honour your father and your mother; which is the first commandment with promise; that it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth"(Eph.6:2-3).

Tragically, millions of young men and women die every day, as a consequence of failing to obey the fifth commandment, which commands them to honour their parents.

Can there be anything more dastardly evil than a child, who denigrates his father, whom God used to cause him to be conceived in his mother's womb? Such a child is most ungrateful and profoundly evil. It will not go well for that child, neither will he inherit the promise of a long life.

The Mystery of The Temple.

When Moses went up to mount Saini, God gave him, among other things, the "blueprint" for the building of the Tabernacle, and told him: "that you make all things according to the pattern shown to you in mount"(Heb.8:5, Acts 7:44).  But the question is, a pattern of what?

However, in accordance with God's instructions, Moses built the Tabernacle, and all the other things that were to be included.  On completion it was consecrated and sanctified, to be carried by selected men from the Priesthood.  Of course, it was inviolate!  If it was touched by anyone other than the selected men, and the High priest, on the day of Atonement, that person died.  But why?

Later in the history of Israel, Solomon was chosen by God to build the Temple or Tabernacle.  On completion, again it was consecrated and sanctified.  And porters were appointed to guard the entrances, to prevent the unclean from entering into it thus: "And he set the porters at the gates of the house of the Lord, that none which was unclean in any thing should enter in"(2 Chron.23:19).  Jesus also referred to porters guarding the door of the church, to prevent "thieves and robbers" from entering(John 10:1-3).  That raises the question, how come that so many false ministers, who turned out to be "thieves and robbers," were able to enter into the church?  A question I shall answer at a later date.

However, the question still remains, of what was the Temple a pattern?  Jesus went up to Jerusalem to attend the Passover, and found hirelings selling animals.  After he drove them out, he made a profound revelation thus: "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up(John 2:19).  The Jews thought that he was referring to the temple that took forty six years to build.  But he was talking about his body, which he called a temple.  So we learned, and the "we" refers to those that are capable of learning, that the pattern God showed Moses in the mount was the pattern of the human body, but especially the "inner man"(2 Cor.4:16).

This teaching is confirmed by the Chosen Vessel thus: "know you not that you are the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwells in you(1 Cor.3:16)?  Of course, the spirit of God only dwells in the "Vessels of Mercy"(Rom.9:23).  

Lots of people assembled for services with the Apostles and The Worldwide Church of God, but the majority of them were not called by God.  If they had been called by God, the spirit of God would have have dwelt in them, and they would never have fallen away from the church.  But John was inspired to write: "They went out from us, but they were not all of us; for if they had been of us, they no doubt have continued with us: but they went out, that it might be made manifest that they were not all of us"(1 John 2:19).  So these people were never temples of God.

I am well aware, of course, that Rod Meredith, Victor Kubic and the gang of hanger-ons, that have coalesced around UCG for a salary, Dave Havir, Dave Pack, Jerry flurry, David Hulme and a hosts of other misguided people, are of the perverse opinion that others have left the church, but they have not!  Yet, all of these crazy men teach that Christ is divided, and God is the author of confusion.  For members and ministers often leave one group to join another, when something is said or done that makes them more unhappy, than they current are!  If that is not teaching that Christ is divided, then I don't know what is!
