Herbert W. Armstrong was ahead of his time!

I'm often accosted by some who mindlessly cut and paste a list of Herbert W. Armstrong's "failed prophecies."

I respond Herbert Armstrong was ahead of his time and served as an early warning system. What follows is one of these many exchanges: it really enough to dismiss this written record as "being ahead of his time?"

Yes. Why don't you just be honest and admit you hate Herbert W. Armstrong because he spoke the plain truth that CANNOT be refuted? that your traditional Churchianity is merely baptized paganism the Bible condemns as part of Mystery Babylon? For exposing your SUNday as a pagan counterfeit of the biblical Sabbath; your pagan holidays you've sought with your replacement theology to replace the biblical festivals; that sheeple like you bleat they're born again and don't have a clue what they're talking about, since we're born again at the Resurrection only; that God is not the sadist traditional Christians make Him out to be; that the meek inherit the Earth -- not float off to Heaven; that you're not an immortal soul, eternal life is a gift from God; the wicked will be destroyed, ashes under our feet; we can become literal God-beings, members of the Kingdom-Family of God?

Why don't you just confess and forsake your sins of murderous hatred against HWA for slaughtering your "sacred cow" and exposing it as religious bull from Babylon?

Haven't I refuted Herbert Armstrong by showing his timing was off?

No. The apostle Paul also thought Christ would return in his lifetime. He was ahead of his time, as he, like Herbert W. Armstrong, later realized.

The enemies of God and Herbert W. Armstrong can't refute the plain truth of the Bible that anybody can read and see for themselves. That's why they have such a murderous hatred against Christ in him, just like the "religious" violently opposed Jesus for standing up for the TRUTH over their tradition.

May such misguided folks repent of their mob mentality against God's servants, and learn to go against popular error instead and start teaching the plain truth of the Bible (that contradicts their present idolatrous traditions). Otherwise they'll die in their sins and traditional darkness (John 15:22). what criteria did he speak truth?

Mr. Armstrong spoke the plain truth by the criteria of the Bible that counterfeit Christianity has rejected for their own traditions. The Bereans were noble for checking out what Paul said compared to THE BIBLE - not compared to their traditions (Acts 17:11).

...are you denying he said the things I posted?

I said Herbert Armstrong was ahead of his time. The PRINCIPLES of prophecy he spoke of remain absolutely true: a final revival of the unholy Roman Empire is prophesied and the EU is forging ahead with that Frankenstein Monster now.

I'm stating categorically that what you've thrown up against Herbert Armstrong is a DIVERSIONARY TACTIC, a dishonest attempt to discredit him, since you can't refute the black and white of the Bible he taught on the plain points I've made and you know it. Who do you think you're fooling by such pretense? God? Man? Why play your foolish games?

Proof that you're offering lame excuses is because every one of your popular traditional ministers or groups have taught and said worse things that, unlike HWA, aren't even true according to biblical prophecy, such as Russia attacking America (when Mr. Armstrong alone warned it will ultimately be a German-led Europe that attacks us that even some Protestants now agree is true) and yet we never see you get all hot and bothered about them or post against them or call them false prophets. Why your glaring double standard? Perhaps you're too blind to see it yourself, but now that it's been brought to your attention, prayerfully think about it and see this is the plain truth.

"For exposing your SUNday as a pagan counterfeit of the biblical Sabbath; your pagan holidays you've sought with your replacement theology to replace the biblical festivals" --

I believe Judaizers were addressed by Paul, not by me.

According to your vain traditions and popular error, Paul would be a Judaizer since he kept and taught the biblical Sabbath and festivals, just like Jesus did and will command all nations to keep when He returns and reigns in Jerusalem.

Are you in denial of this plain truth? It says Christ will command both Jews, Israelites and Gentiles, all nations, to keep the Feast of Tabernacles -- not pagan Xmas or Easter (should tell you a lot right there!)- when He reigns from Jerusalem with the glorified Saints, then brilliant God-Beings. Is Jesus a Judaizer? Rather, your kind are Roman wolves in sheep's clothing with your replacement theology, seeking to demonically replace the Sabbath with pagan Sunday, the biblical festivals with your hollow days of pagan origins that GOD HATES, and you do many other similar things with your idolatrous and tinsel traditions.

"...that God is not the sadist traditional Christians make Him out to be; that the meek inherit the Earth - not float off to Heaven;" -- who said anything about floating off? I have specifically said our hope is in the new earth.

Thankfully, you're correct about the New Earth, but your traditional Churchianity teaches folks go to "heaven or hell" when they die, which is a RELIGIOUS LIE. And I see you still misrepresent God as a sadist rather than a loving God who puts the wicked out of their misery, who mercifully destroys them completely in the Lake of Fire and lets them return to dust while the rest become divine.

"that you're not an immortal soul, eternal life is a gift from God;" -- Yes, a gift already given to all.

Another RELIGIOUS LIE. Why don't you believe the clear teachings of the Scripture rather than Catholic-Babylonian doctrines of demons? Satan said, "You shall surely not die." In other words, you're an immortal soul! Yet God's Word says the soul that sins it shall die, and Revelation speaks of the second death (from which there is never a resurrection), and Jesus spoke about destroying both body and soul in "Hell fire." Why don't you believe Him? God isn't the sadist you counterfeit Christians with your serpentine ministers make Him out to be.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not PERISH (death), but (on the other hand) have everlasting life."

Life or death - those are the only two choices. Not life and life. And who would consider it a gift if they had eternal life in torment? You're not even being logical or biblical. "The wages of sin is DEATH, but the gift of God is eternal life" (Romans 6:23). Life or death, plain and simple. And "no murderer has eternal life dwelling in him" (1 John 3:15).

"the wicked will be destroyed, ashes under our feet; we can become literal God-beings, members of the Kingdom-Family of God? Why don't you just confess and forsake your sins of murderous hatred against HWA for slaughtering your "sacred cow" and exposing it as religious bull from Babylon?" --

I don't believe you ever answered as to why HWA was lying to you about the Greek language, his sole basis for his beliefs; that it does not concern you......

Why are you still wrestling dishonestly, desperately, with YOUR straw man? I've clearly shown how biblical it is to know and believe and teach we're to become literal God-Beings and I don't need to know Greek to read it in the Bible and believe the simplicity that is in Christ.

Why are you so dishonest and trying to squirm around clear statements like "flesh and blood does NOT inherit the Kingdom of God," and "we shall see Him as He is for we shall be like Him," and even as we've born the human image of Adam, so we'll bear the divine image of Christ, the FIRSTBORN OF MANY BRETHREN.

Why don't you believe those clear Scriptures that you're afraid to address and go off on your little tangents, dishonestly? Why don't you let the Truth set you free from your lying traditions? Why resist the Holy Spirit of truth? You should praise God for exposing such darkness to you and be glad to forsake the Babylon you're in enslaved within.

Regardless, it's your choice: you can become dust or divine, have eternal life or eternal death. But, like God, I encourage you to CHOOSE LIFE.


Herbert W. Armstrong Was Ahead of His Time!

Will the Third Temple be built next year?

From Israel Today:

According to a centuries-old rabbinical prophecy that appears to be coming true, on March 16, 2010, Israel will begin construction of the Third Temple in Jerusalem.

During the 18th century, the Vilna Gaon, a respected rabbinical authority, prophesied that the Hurva Synagoge in Jerusalem, which was built during his day, would be destroyed and rebuilt twice, and that when the Hurva was completed for the third time, construction on the Third Temple would begin.

The Hurva Synagogue was first destroyed shortly after its initial construction when Muslims demanding the return of loans tore it down. The synagogue was rebuilt a hundred years later and became the most important Jewish house of worship in the Holy Land, only be blown to pieces by Jordanian troops during Israel's 1948 War of Independence.

In 2001, Israel finally decided to rebuild the landmark, which today stands in the center of the Jewish Quarter in Jerusalem's Old City. The building is scheduled to be completed and the Hurva Synagogue dedicated for the third time on March 15 of next year.

Fear and Loathing in PA over Temple Mount Link to Jews

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu (

An Arab university lecturer and writer is hiding underground out of fear for his life after shocking the Palestinian Authority with a book that links Jews with the Temple Mount. The Arab world has been conducting a campaign, including removal of tons of dirt containing archaeological evidence, to try to eliminate historical Jewish links with the Temple Mount.

Dr. Sari Nusseibeh, of Birzeit University in Ramallah, threw acid on the propaganda campaign that tries to convince Arabs that the First and Second Temples never existed. He wrote in a book, “The legendary Temple of Jerusalem may be the place of the Presence of the Almighty and where the High Priests served Him.”

PA officials are furious with Nusseibeh, a scion of a distinguished Arab family, who now is in hiding and cannot be contacted even by mobile phone.

However, Dr. Mordechai Kedar, Middle East expert at Bar-Ilan University, told Arutz 7 that Nusseibeh actually is “small potatoes” compared to a Muslim grand mufti, in the days of the British Mandate, who wrote in 1929 that the Holy Temples on the Temple Mount were Jewish,

According to Dr. Kedar, Nusseibeh already had made enemies in the PA after declaring he is not interested in returning to his former home of Ramle, located near Ben Gurion Airport. He also was threatened with death several years ago after urging Arabs to stop suicide bombings and to abandon their claim to a "right of return" to Israel.

Dr. Sari Nusseibeh is a glimmer of hope, of rare honesty, in the Arab world about the Temple Mount.

I'm sure there is "fear and loathing" among self-hating, liberal Jews too. They hate any light that disturb their darkness, which is why I was unjustly deported from Israel for highlighting the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under Nazi-Muslim occupation!

Highlighting the Plight of the Temple Mount under Nazi-Muslim Occupation

Israel aids and abets Muslim discrimination against Christians and Jews!

On many political and religious forums I post and participate on (just google David Ben-Ariel and see for yourself!), there are a rotten few, stooges, who foolishly aid and abet the Nazi-Muslim occupation of Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount, and the Bolsheviks who enable them to flout Israeli law against religious discrimination daily as they trample the rights of Christians and Jews in Jerusalem. They are disinformation queens that I dethrone. This is typical of their hateful modus operandi:

And you're still a terrorist, an international criminal

Exhibit A of the old "shoot the messenger" syndrome! A terrorist? What a drama queen! The plain truth continues to terrorize those living a lie, who always make wild accusations, hysterical charges, never offering any documentation to back up what they say (because they don't have any whatsoever), shamefully engaging in disinformation, but always presenting me with an opportunity to shed light on the subject, exposing their darkness and desperation:

and banned for life from ever entering Israel again as long as you live

O ye of little faith! What proof do you have for such hysterical charges? For such wild accusations? NONE! We see right through you and your world of darkness. Won't you let the truth set you free? My unjust deportation from Israel was due to highlighting the plight of the Temple Mount suffering under Nazi Muslim occupation in an article published in Jerusalem (and now read around the world), even though the Israeli authorities lied and said it was about an "expired visa." Regardless, the Israeli authorities informed Senator Mike DeWine (R - Ohio) that I would be "eligible" to return in 2005 on a tourist visa. So much for your hateful nonsense!

Israel sets date for 2005

Due to personal business, family, friends and extensive travels in the United States of America the Beautiful, I haven't returned to Israel yet to visit the 8 kibbutzim I've served on as a volunteer (due to my God-given love of the Jews), to visit the grave of my holocaust-survivor/kibbutz mother Miriam Weiss, to see the Holy Land of Israel God knows I love so much, and especially the most holy site on Earth: the Temple Mount. In God's good time I shall return, as we're assured by the words of the Prophet: Zion shall be redeemed with justice.

Thank you for being a useful idiot and providing me this opportunity to again set the record straight. I know you've proven you don't care to be "confused" with the facts, but honest and objective folks will see what you refuse to see, blinded by your murderous and unwarranted hatred of those who love God, the Bible and Israel. Shame on you!

Still At Large!

The Jerusalem Post, Jan. 8, 1996, had a front page story about how the GSS sought my deportation for alleged involvement in a "plot to blow up the Al-Aksa mosque."

And now for the rest of the story:

IF the Israeli authorities truly suspected me of being involved in such a dangerous activity, they would have NEVER RELEASED ME with only my passport in their hands. As for those others allegedly involved in some plot, that were "still at large" - THEY'RE STILL AT LARGE to this day, twelve years later, because they don't exist! And, just like twelve years ago I protested my innocence, I continue to this day doing the same, consistent, honest and true, as God knows, and as they very well know.

They had a computer disk with Beyond Babylon on it back then, and now Beyond Babylon is professionally published, and it says now, as then, that it is the GOVERNMENT of Israel's responsibility to remove the mosques and prepare for the Temple. Gershon Salomon, chairman of the Temple Mount Faithful, has been stating that fact publicly since he helped to liberate the Temple Mount in 1967 during the Six Day War. What we say is LEGAL and BIBLICAL, although some would trample our rights to express ourselves and practice our religion, in a vain attempt to appease the Nazi-Muslim beasts. Thankfully, the Temple will soon be REALITY upon the TEMPLE Mount and the mosques will be history!

America has lost it

Are Americans Really This Stupid?

The powers that be want a dumbed down America so they won't know or care to ask legitimate, thought-provoking questions like: how can Obama be a natural born citizen when he admits his Kenyan father isn't an American and only those born to two American citizens are natural born citizens - a Constitutional requirement to be POTUS? A law review editor who has never published any articles in any law reviews? Obama sat for over 20 years in racist Jeremiah Wright's haven of hatred and never heard anything anti-American or anti-Semitic? Obama's health records are sealed from childhood to today? Why does Obama hide his Harvard Law School records? Wouldn't you be proud of them? Why does Obama hide his kindergarten records? Why does Obama fail to come clean with the American people and refuses to start being transparent?

Objective observers in other nations would, at best, wonder if Americans are really this stupid since Obama has kept us in the dark and too many folks fail to question why, fearful of being disturbed by the facts or simply contemptuous of truth. A mind is a terrible thing to waste - but a nation is a frightening thing to lose. It appears America has lost it.

Jerusalem project to clean up 'Solomonic' wall

November 19, 2009
EDMOND—Brent Nagtegaal, instructor of archeology at Herbert W. Armstrong College, and Harley Breth, student body class president, will transfer to Jerusalem for a six-week project in late November. Under the supervision of Dr. Eilat Mazar, they will clean up the area around a wall from the period of the First Temple and do some excavation as well.

The wall is probably part of a “Solomonic” gate complex from the First Temple period originally excavated by Sir Charles Warren in the 1860s. Sir Warren excavated the outside of the gate complex. In 1986, Dr. Eilat Mazar discovered the inside of the gate complex, a rectangular stone complex measuring over 2,000 square feet. Previous to the discovery of this water gate, there was little archaeological evidence to corroborate the biblical references to the Davidic dynasty. Dr. Mazar’s excavation, though, was never completely finished, and she will now return with support from the college to clean up the area and complete the excavation.

This project has a smaller scale than previous phases of the dig and Mr. Nagtegaal will assist Dr. Mazar directly. They will work in the area south of the Temple Mount known as the Ophel, where Dr. Mazar’s grandfather, Benjamin Mazar, led the Ambassador College-assisted excavation. It is about 400 feet north of the City of David excavation of King David’s palace. Mr. Nagtegaal was a volunteer on phase two and three of Dr. Mazar’s dig, and served as supervisor of area G for the last half of the third phase.

May God bless these young men as they work in Jerusalem with our Jewish brethren, an opportunity of a lifetime!

Rabbi misinformed about Herbert W. Armstrong

God Bless British Israel!

Herbert Armstrong Got the Word Out About British-Israel!

Herbert W. Armstrong, author of The United States and Britain in Prophecy, did not claim the British-Israel truth was some special "divine revelation" to him, but Mr. Armstrong acknowledged how he was surprised at the amount of information on this subject in his local library in Oregon and how he GLEANED from it and presented it to us on a silver platter. Some of us appreciate that fact and focus on the message - not on the messengers.

Some pitiful, petty, nit-picking, easily distracted souls either accuse Herbert W. Armstrong of plagiarism, or of not giving credit to men like J. H. Allen or G. G. Rupert.

I've posted information on Judah's Scepter and Joseph's Birthright by John Harden Allen on my many blogs. We wouldn't even know about Mr. J. H. Allen if it weren't for Herbert Armstrong, would we? You would think he could have at least acknowledged a few of the British-Israel giants, but he didn't and life goes on and the truth gets out. Blessed be the God of Israel for restoring our identity to us!

I remember borrowing Judah's Sceptre and Joseph's Birthright from Carl Fields, a local elder in the Worldwide Church of God congregation in Toledo, Ohio, at one of our regular Bible studies held in the science auditorium of a high school. He didn't hand it to me in a brown paper bag, meet me privately in the parking lot, but handed it to me in public. We knew about Mr. Allen - who didn't? And those who did read his book were even more grateful afterwards for how Mr. Armstrong waded through many such works and presented it in a more clear and concise manner, blessed by his background in journalism. Even A.N. Dugger, the prominent Church of God, Seventh Day, editor of The Bible Advocate whom Mr. Armstrong knew and corresponded with acknowledged: "I have seen no work near its equal in clearness and completeness. You surely are right, and while I cannot use it in the paper at the present you may be assured that your labor has surely not been in vane [sic.]."

Mr. Armstrong was the one God used - not Allen or Rupert - to restore the identity doctrine to God's Church in a way that no others had. I trust Allen and Rupert (and many others they learned from) would praise God that Mr. Armstrong was able to get the word out! Folks who rightly focus on the message, who recognize the plain truth about British-Israel belongs to God and not to any man or organization, are grateful to God for using Mr. Armstrong mightily to share this truth with MILLIONS worldwide!

A History and Comparison of the Various Editions of The United States and Britain in Prophecy
By Herbert W. Armstrong (1892-1986)

The United States and Britain in Prophecy (Philadelphia Church of God)

The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy (Living Church of God)

United States in Prophecy! (David Ben-Ariel)

The Watchmen

The Watchmen
"I have set Watchmen on your walls, O Jerusalem"
God has called us to do a Work! Anyone can and should do good works in private, but God has called us collectively to COME OUT OF THE CLOSET and deliver His Message! We're to help save individuals and nations from the coming Holocaust!

Worldwide Church Of God All Over Again?
Let’s see to it that Philadelphia Church of God (Judah) doesn’t go the way of the Worldwide Church of God (Israel). These biblical principles still apply: don’t put undue trust in men; work out your own salvation, it’s not a group affair; beware the scholarly approach that demands you rely on men - not God’s Spirit or personal Bible study.

Jesus GAVE His Life To Give Us LIFE!
The passionate anti-Semites/anti-Zionists would do well to note Jesus' words of life and forgiveness: "FATHER, FORGIVE THEM, for they know not what they do...". Who are puny men to continue a blood libel against every Jew for the actions of a relative few?

Plea to Diehard Catholics & Protestants to Repent
Having clearly seen how the practice of homosexuality is a sin (as I testify in God and the Gays), I can now see clearly how SPIRITUAL HOMOSEXUALS, the bloody Roman Catholic whore and her Protestant prostitute daughters (Rev. 17:5), prefer tradition over truth.

The Plain Truth About Ron Weinland
Ron Weinland is drunk on his delusions... Ron Weinland is a FALSE PROPHET and illegitimately claims to be one of the Two Witnesses.

The Suffering Servant
"For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Savior: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee. Since thou wast precious in my sight, thou hast been honorable, and I have loved thee: therefore will I give men for thee (individuals), and people (nations) for thy life" (Isaiah 43:3-4). And, again, "For I am with thee, says the LORD, to save thee: though I will make a full end of all nations whither I have scattered thee, yet will I not make a full end of thee..." (Jeremiah 30:11).

Yeshua is the Suffering Servant
He is despised and rejected by men, A Man (not a nation, a man) of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we (collective Israel, especially Judah) hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He (one man) was despised, and we (Israel/Judah) did not esteem Him.

The Plain Truth About Race And Responsibility
Why leave others with distorted views of what the Bible says? Why not present our God-given understanding of cause and effect for today's increasing racial divides? Precisely because it is a BOMBSHELL to those who have been lulled to sleep, drugged by PC poison and who, once awakened would be enraged and shoot the messenger!

The Passover Memorial
 When did God decree that Jesus could declare "it is finished" and die on the stake? Why at the very same time that THE JEWS were sacrificing their Passover lambs at the Temple! The Jews had always killed the Passover lambs during the final hours of the 14th. It was towards the end of the 14th, not at the beginning of the 14th, that the Passover lambs were killed.

Passover and Pentecost Differences Settled!
 The correct dates to observe God's holy days should not be a Church of God issue, having been settled by God thousands of years ago and preserved throughout the ages by faithful Jews.

The Oracles of God
God's empowered the Jews - despite themselves - to preserve His Word. They are the only people on Earth that God has blessed and ordained to fulfill such a calling! God will not retract His Word or renege on this gift and responsibility that He's graciously bestowed upon Judah.

Don't Fall for the Rapture!
We meet the returning Christ in the air and RETURN TO EARTH - to the Mount of Olives - and reign with but under Him, composing the Kingdom of God: just like the Bible clearly says once we remove traditional blinders.

Politics in the Church of God Hinders Progress
 Gerald Flurry refused to go forward with Beyond Babylon and fell backwards, treading old ground and is now going in circles, business as usual, as Europe rises and Judah and Israel have yet to be warned.

Unclean Christianity vs. Peter's Vision
 Unclean traditional Christianity teaches the religious lie that Jesus "did away with" the dietary laws, sinning against both God and man (1 John 2:4; Matt 5:17-20).

Synagogue of Satan?
"And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive; I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, but thou art rich and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan." (Rev. 2:8-9)

God Doesn't Ordain Women Preachers!
 I just read an abominable article written by a proud and stubborn woman attempting to justify rebellious women doing what only God has ordained men to do: preach from the pulpit as ordained ministers.

Did Jesus Call Jews the Children of the Devil?
Jesus acknowledged that Abraham is the father of the Jews physically, but not always spiritually (John 8:37, 39, 42, 44). The same can be said and is true about all Twelve Tribes of Israel. In fact, the commission of the Two Witnesses - in the spirit of Elijah - is to restore our relationship with our Fathers (Abraham, Isaac and Jacob) and thereby through their true religion reconcile us to our Heavenly Father (Malachi 4:6; Isa. 49:5-6).

Brokeback Mountain Blues
I wanted to see it, but I didn't want to see it. I'm talking about the "gay cowboy" movie called Brokeback Mountain (even though I read Jake Gyllenhaal, one of the two major actors - "Jack Twist," wants it to mean much more than that to its audience).

Race Matters
It seems evident that the resurrected Noah will head a vast project of the relocation of the races and nations, within the boundaries God has set, for their own best good, happiness and richest blessings. This will be a tremendous operation. It will require great and vast organization, reinforced with power to move whole nations and races. This time, peoples and nations will move where God has planned for them, and no defiance will be tolerated.

The Pharisees
Who isn't aware of the sins of the Pharisees? Especially the Accuser of the Brethren? But does that mean the truths they teach, even if they don't live them, are no longer true?

Don't Give Up!
If you begin to cry out to God for help, even if it's only a whimper because you're so weak, He'll see and hear and respond. "The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit... none of them that trust in Him shall be desolate" (Ps. 34:18, 22).

The REAL JESUS Can't Return Until...
Prophecy clearly reveals that the REAL JESUS CHRIST will not return to Earth from Heaven (in full view of all mankind -- not from some secret EU or Vatican chamber or desert cave) until after Jerusalem has suffered under a Gentile EU occupation for three and one half years

Scarlet Letter: A Christian With AIDS
The following is a actual letter I sent to a close Christian friend in 1999, immediately after I was diagnosed with HIV. Since then the HIV has progressed on into AIDS.

Does God Heal Today?
When I was first diagnosed with the HIV virus, I read innumerable articles on it and later suffered from an information overload and depressing confusion. One article would speak in favor of taking the highly toxic HIV/AIDS medicines, and then I'd read another one that spoke against it with just as convincing of an argument.

Onward Christian Soldiers!
Why did ancient Israel have an army? Was it because they didn't have faith? Did they believe in themselves instead of trusting God? Did they insist on fighting their own battles, rather than let God wage war for them?

Separation of Church and State? Says Who?
God calls upon our Israelite family of nations to RESTORE HIS LAW AND ORDER, and we'll receive blessing to the degree we love and obey and He will bless our NATIONAL EFFORTS that reflect national repentance, learning to go by God's Word as LAW, trusting in His wisdom, rather than leaning to our own understanding with all our different political parties of men.

God's One Government Has Two Branches!
The Sabbath-keeping Church of God (that remains faithful to the plain truth of the Bible that Herbert W. Armstrong taught) has heard a lot about government, but many seem to have forgotten that God's ONE government has TWO branches: Church (Priest) and State (King).

Should Christians Judge?
All judgment must be tempered with mercy. Jesus clearly taught that we can see others imperfections (the "mote" in their eye) and help to remove it once we have first gotten the "beam" out of our own eye. The purpose is to help and not hurt: constructive criticism, not self-righteousness or sinister motivations.

Christmas is About Giving -- Says Who?
Going into debt certainly isn't biblical, so why not break free from the trance? The "Christmas" rush is a "drug" pushed by commercial pimps prostituting a supposedly Christian holiday for their ungodly profits! They hold hands around the cash register and sing, "What a friend we have in Jesus."

C.H. Spurgeon on Christmas and Roman Catholicism
 First, because we do not believe in the mass at all, but abhor it, whether it be sung in Latin or in English. Secondly, because we find no Scriptural warrant whatever for observing any day as the birthday of the Savior; and consequently, its observance is a superstition

Is the Plain Truth Too Strong?
"Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression [the Church and Synagogue], And the house of Jacob [the family of Israelite nations - all Twelve Tribes of Israel] their sins. 2 Yet they seek Me daily, And delight to know My ways, As a nation that did righteousness, And did not forsake the ordinance of their God. They ask of Me the ordinances of justice; They take delight in approaching God" (Isaiah 58).

When Caesar Plays God: When the State Oversteps its Bounds
I read the Book of Acts, making it much more meaningful and relevant, during my detention in Jerusalem's Russian Compound jail. If you examine the evidence surrounding Paul's frequent arrests and imprisonments, you'll see a pattern of trumped up charges, misunderstandings and misguided zeal against him. It's a miracle that Paul didn't say "enough is enough" and quit.

Jesus Upheld the Biblical Dietary Laws
Unclean traditional Christianity has misled many with their lack of understanding of the Bible as a whole. They often take Scriptures out of context and totally twist their meanings, like they do when it comes to abusing Matthew 15 and slaughtering it to teach we can now eat anything.

Do You Prefer TRADITION Over Truth?
If anybody is honestly interested in knowing whether or not this or that doctrine is actually biblical or merely traditional, all they have to do is objectively search the Scriptures like the noble Bereans did in Acts 17:11, after hearing Paul out, to see whether what he taught was true...

Remember the Sabbath
 Did you ever stop to think why Christians keep Sunday? Did they get it from the Bible? Is there a clear-cut command that says, "Thou shalt keep Sunday?" Why did Jesus worship on Saturday? Was it only because He was a good Jew? Or does it go beyond that?

The Plain Truth About Easter
Has it ever occurred to those stuffing their faces with Easter ham that Jesus would puke at the thought? Neither Jesus or Peter, James or John ever ate forbidden foods. They wouldn't feel too comfortable at plenty of people's dinner tables.

Yom Kippur at Sdot Yam
 Tradition - even empty, hollow, shallow - has assisted Jewry to preserve this Day, however imperfectly; yet I also couldn't help but think of God & Kahane who might dismiss such "worship" as vain and such "devotions" as void.

The Rapture or Place of Safety?
 We know those who are accounted worthy to escape WWIII, those with a prayerful attitude and watchful spirit, growing and overcoming and sensitive to the lead of the Holy Spirit (Luke 21:34-36), will be more than provided for in "Her Place," as our gracious Lord of Hosts has promised (Revelation 12:14).

Will the Church of God Welcome the Two Witnesses?
Church of God minister Arlen Berkey, in "The Work of God in the Laodicean Era," makes a statement nobody in God's Church would disagree with: "The whole world will soon know about the two witnesses. They will not be welcome by this world."

David Pack & the Restored Church of God
When David Pack said something to the effect that the Global Church of God was not for me, I asked him why he invited me then and he then acknowledged he only invited me along with the others because he felt they were good candidates for membership. In other words, he was being deceitful.

Israel Work History (Worldwide Church of God)
 Ilan Itzhayek wrote a full length article that was published in the entire Galilee region. It was about my former drug addiction, wandering in different religions looking for the truth, and how by a series of miracles God brought me into the Worldwide Church of God, mentioning some of our beliefs about Europe, and how we considered Herbert W. Armstrong in the spirit of Elijah.

Princess Diana, a Dream, and King David's Dynasty
"If you send us a copy of the information on King David and his relationship to the English Royal Family, plus a verification that such information has been validated and by whom, we will see to it that it gets to Buckingham Palace and that your name will accompany it." Immediately I wondered what to send to satisfy the newspaper. The chart seemed obvious, but I still sought counsel from my minister. He advised writing a Church official at our Headquarter's in Pasadena, California who is English and involved with our Media Coordinator. The Church official replied: "I believe the most prudent course of action would be to send the chart 'The Heritage of the Anglo-Saxon Race' to the newspaper for their further action."

The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11
The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11. Who are these two prophets? What do they have to say? Why are they called the two witnesses? How will their message be proclaimed? And is there any special significance to the fact that they're headquartered in Jerusalem?

Why I No Longer Celebrate Christmas
I was blessed to grow up in Risingsun, Ohio next door to my Grandma and Grandpa Hoover on their farm that embraced where we lived, surrounding us with its loving arms on both sides (until the age of 11) and behind, with our woods over yonder a bit, that I loved to walk through as a boy, always looking for my "brother" hawk, circling overhead, to greet me...

The Church of God Must Warn the World!
We know that certain prophecies were not to be fulfilled until these "last days." Therefore their sealed messages weren't to break their silence until the appointed time (Dan. 12:9). With the advent of the nuclear age, we've been living, for the first time in history, with the weapons of mass destruction that can erase all life from off planet Earth! (Matt. 24:21-22).

PCG: Carrying on "Business as Usual"
 If you truly saw what is coming on this Earth, and had a vision of tomorrow, you would know that the Gathering Storm darkens as you sip champagne and boast that you're rich and in need of nothing, woefully ignorant that the Two Witnesses will soon be wearing sackcloth and fasting, not wining and dining at black tie dinners!

Will God Curse Our Countries for Christmas?
 Abominable Christians, those who have the perverted religious preference of tradition over truth, are just like every other sinner unwilling to confess and forsake their sins and seek to whitewash or justify them. The difference is such professing Christians often pretend to be better or more righteous than those physical idolaters and immoral folks (who also refuse to repent) while they engage in spiritual idolatry (putting tradition over truth) and spiritual immorality (whoring around with other gods and foreign ways) bringing divine judgment upon our nations.

The Work of God Must Go Forward!
The Work of God must go forward. The only work that's left to do now is focus on the NATIONAL LEVEL. We must get out God's ultimatum and fast! Europe is on the rise and Jerusalem is getting international attention (Zech. 14:2). Soon God's two witnesses will rise and shine in a world of darkness (Isa. 60:1-2). God's about to restore His lamp to the Middle East! (Rev. 11:3; 1 Kgs. 11:36; Amos 9:11; Zech. 12:8).

 Philadelphia Church of God Leads the Laodicean Era (Part 1)
When Gerald Flurry wasn't anything in his own sight or mind God used him and now, unfortunately, it appears to have gone to his head, all the new revelation (simply a deeper understanding of some things), and he forgets that all truth is from and belongs to GOD and that God can use a donkey to deliver it (1 Cor. 4:7). Gerald Flurry has become so swollen in his own imagination that he fails to see that he is the leader of LAODICEA! He knows what warning God is giving the Laodiceans, of which he is chief! He had better heed his own words...

Philadelphia Church of God Leads Laodicean Era (Conclusion)
"It's certainly not my place to determine if what you believe God has shown you is true or not, but would you mind presenting Mr. Flurry with an abbreviated version of what you feel is inspired... as I highly doubt that he would have time to read your whole book."

Obama demands ethnic cleaning of Jews

No Jews Allowed

Obama's plan for Peace on the West Bank is not new.

The Nazis invented two words for it.

"Judenfrei" refers to "freeing" an area of all of its Jewish citizens. "Judenrein" (literally "clean of Jews") was also used. This had the stronger connotation that the area had been cleansed of Jewish blood. -more

PCG: Practice What You Preach!

God’s Sacred Calendar (Part Two)
November 20, 2009 | From

A closer look at some of the rules of the Hebrew calendar. This is where most of the controversy arises over the calendar. By Stephen Flurry and Mark Nash

It is true God has preserved His sacred calendar and holy days, and the correct dates to observe them, through THE JEWS. Yet the Philadelphia Church of God (PCG) and others continue in the proud and stubborn, idolatrous traditions of men and reject the correct Jewish dates for Passover and Pentecost, condemning themselves. Would to God folks would repent and let the truth set them free! Would to God they would practice what they preach and submit to the God-given authority of the Jews on these sacred matters!

Passover and Pentecost Differences Settled!
The correct dates to observe God's holy days should not be a Church of God issue, having been settled by God thousands of years ago and preserved throughout the ages by faithful Jews.

The Oracles of God
God's empowered the Jews - despite themselves - to preserve His Word. They are the only people on Earth that God has blessed and ordained to fulfill such a calling! God will not retract His Word or renege on this gift and responsibility that He's graciously bestowed upon Judah.

The Pharisees
Who isn't aware of the sins of the Pharisees? Especially the Accuser of the Brethren? But does that mean the truths they teach, even if they don't live them, are no longer true?

The Passover Memorial
When did God decree that Jesus could declare "it is finished" and die on the stake? Why at the very same time that THE JEWS were sacrificing their Passover lambs at the Temple! The Jews had always killed the Passover lambs during the final hours of the 14th. It was towards the end of the 14th, not at the beginning of the 14th, that the Passover lambs were killed.

It's as simple as that. When will Israelis wake up and repent and do the right thing and expel Ishmael and destroy Amalek?

Well spoken from a Righteous Gentile!

Re: The English-Speaking Nations of White Israelites
Kwame Guy writes:
I guess it depends on your definition of Racist. By dictionary definition we are all Racist, bigotry is a different matter. I find the perceived fear of being called a racist among white people, because of PC, is a bit of a cop-out for not taking responsibility for the blessings that you refer too.

I applaud you for speaking out, since most minorities will tell you, all PC aside: when whites prosper, we all prosper. When whites move up, we all have an opportunity to progress. However, when whites, panic, turn from God, practice bigotry and greed, then the effects on the rest of the races is always negative. PC was created by whites to excuse themselves from speaking the Plain Truth and shirking their responsibility to God and the rest of the Races. So by all means take pride in your Race and do everything you can to fulfill your God-given responsibility.

Amen brother! Well-spoken from a righteous Gentile.

Kwame, God bless you for your humble attitude and honest observations that are a blessing to see and know and sets an example for others to follow and gives us all something to think about.

And He Lay Down in that Place

"...and he lay down in that place."

(Genesis 28:11)
Kislev 8, 5770/November 24, 2009
"If you only set your mind to it..."

Yaakov avinu - our forefather Jacob - left town (Be'er Sheva) in a hurry, and apparently with some unfinished business. It was clear that his mother Rivka possessed a greater insight into Yaakov than did his father Yitzchak. But it would seem that Yaakov himself longed to gain greater understanding of his father. And so, as he fled from his brother Esau, Yaakov paused along the way at "that place." (ibid) And what place was "that place?" It was, as Yaakov knew, the place upon which his father Yitzchak had been bound upon the altar by his father Avraham. It was clear to Yaakov that this was the transforming moment in his father's life, and now he wanted to achieve a greater understanding of his father.

So Yaakov gathered beneath his head the very stones that had made up the altar on that fateful day in his father's life, and laid his head upon them. The dream that Yaakov dreamed, of a ladder planted firmly on the earth and extending to heaven, with angels ascending and descending upon it, and G-d standing over him, was Yaakov's reliving of his father's experience on the altar at Mount Moriah. Yaakov had transformed the one-time, visceral, life and death experience of Yitzchak into a vision that could, (and would), transcend the generations.

The significance of his dream wasn't lost on Yaakov, who arose and declared, "How awesome is this place! This is none other than the house of G-d, and this is the gate of heaven." (ibid 28:17) Nor was the significance of his dream lost on the very stones upon which he had slept, for they too, according to Midrash, united themselves from twelve stones into one single stone, which Yaakov then "set it up as a monument, and he poured oil on top of it." (ibid 28:18) The twelve stones were symbolic of the twelve as-yet unborn sons of Yaakov, the twelve progenitors of the twelve tribes of Israel. Only when the twelve tribes are united as one will the "house of G-d" be built, and will mankind reach "the gate of heaven."

"'Behold, the fragrance of my son is like the fragrance of a field, which the Lord has blessed!'" (ibid 27:27) With these words Yitzchak blessed Yaakov. The "fragrance of a field" our sages teach us, is, in fact the "fragrance" of Eden, which Yitzchak had experienced during his binding on Mount Moriah. This fragrance would later be embodied by the ketoret incense of the Divine service, just as the altar upon which Yitzchak was bound, and upon whose stones Yaakov slept, would become the great stone altar of the Temple courtyard, and whose purpose would be to bring man closer to G-d, the ladder, as it were "set up on the ground and its top reaching the heavens." (ibid 28:12) Only after experiencing this vision and establishing the foundation stone of the future Holy Temple, did Yaakov allow himself to think again of his own safety, and continue on his journey.

Today, there are still those who insist we must have "rocks in our head" when we talk openly about the existential need (of all mankind) to rebuild the Holy Temple. Perhaps we should take it as a compliment, for it certainly recalls the night when Yaakov laid his head upon the rocks and upon waking, articulated for all time the desire of man and G-d to meet, to confront, and to be as one on this sacred place - the place of the Holy Temple.

Giving Thanks for Joseph's Birthright!

George Washington issued our country's first Thanksgiving Proclamation on October 3, 1789. In it, President Washington wrote:

"Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor . . .

"Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be--That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks--for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation--for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war--for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed--for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted--for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.

"And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions--to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually--to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed--to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord--To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us--and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best."

As the United States is Manasseh, the son of Joseph, who was prophesied to become a SINGLE GREAT NATION, we have shared in JOSEPH'S BIRTHRIGHT and have every reason to be grateful to God for His Faithfulness and tender mercies this Thanksgiving Day and every day!

Good News / Bad News

The Bible is good news/bad news, just like the Ezekiel Warning Message with the hope of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God that will become increasingly personal and relevant to British Israelites and Jews specifically since the King of the Jews, the King of Israel, for the sake of His ethnic elect (beloved for the fathers' Abraham, Isaac and Jacob's sakes) will intervene and prevent the utter destruction of Jacob-Israel and the world will be spared because of it.

Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall... Europe's rise - bad news! Europe's fall - good news!

Today the European Beast is taking shape and form before us, while the American, British and Jewish peoples continue their nosedive to oblivion. Both of these intertwined events were clearly prophesied (Lev. 26; Deut. 28). And it's only with our God-given understanding of biblical prophecy that we can see where these trends are rapidly heading.

Both the Book of Daniel and the Book of Revelation reveal a Gentile confederation of nations to emerge upon the world scene just before Messiah comes, wrecking havoc upon Israel and opposing the Heavenly Army (Dan.7; Rev. 13; 17).

Ted Pike 11-23-9 The Anti-Defamation League likes to describe itself as a "civil liberties" watchdog group that is ever alert to warn of dangerous "conspiracy theories," particularly those that are 'anti-semitic.' While deploring the conspiracy theories of others, ADL has produced a 27-page special report entitled "Rage Grows in America: Anti-Government Conspiracies" which, of course, is a conspiracy theory of its own! It charges that a number of right wing media leaders are conspiring to lie and distort facts ...

An Analysis of the Prophecies of the Scriptures in regard to the Royal Family of Judah and the Many Nations of Israel, the Lost Ten Tribes

Table of Contents


Originally published, 1902. Nineteenth Edition. Re-typeset, A.D. 2000

A notable and immensely significant sign of the times is the revival of interest in Old Testament prophecy that is beginning to be strongly felt in Anglo-Saxon countries. This book presents facts and considerations which every­one must sometime take into account, for they are des­tined to become important factors in world affairs.

A reviewer in the Baptist Messenger says, "This is one of the most interesting volumes we have read in many a day and we confess that the arguments produced by Mr. Allen seem to be unanswerable. It is more thrilling than Western fiction. The description of the scarlet thread, the royal remnant, and the part played by Jeremiah in the preservation of the ruler for David's throne, will cause you to lose sleep rather than go to bed without knowing the outcome."

Esau and Yaakov: Who Will Lead?

And Yitzchak loved Esau... but Rivkah loved Yaakov."


(Genesis 25:28)
Kislev 2, 5770/November 19, 2009
Parents naturally tend to love all their children. No doubt this was also the case for Yitzchak, (Isaac), and Rivkah, (Rebecca). So why does Torah imply otherwise? Yitzchak and Rivkah were presented with a challenge that Avraham and Sara weren't confronted with. Avraham and Sara had but one child, and G-d's promise for the future was assuredly with Yitzchak. But Yitzchak and Rivkah had two sons and each one's character and personality traits were so different from the other. Yitzchak saw his son Esau, "a man who understood hunting, a man of the field," (ibid 25:27), and saw in his worldly, outgoing, take-charge personality, the qualities needed to lead the next generation. Esau's "game was in his mouth" (ibid 25:28), he was able to pursue and achieve via his gift of speech, his oratory skills. He was born for leadership.


Yaakov, on the other hand, is described in somewhat mysterious terms: "an innocent man, dwelling in tents," (ibid 25:27). "Innocent," naive, perhaps, even simple. All qualities which may serve him well in life, but evincing no outward inclination to leadership.


There were, however, qualities that Esau possessed that Yitzchak didn't see, but were crystal clear to Rivkah: "And Esau said to Yaakov, "Pour into [me] some of this red, red [pottage], for I am faint"; he was therefore named Edom." (ibid 25:30) Yes, Esau possessed great social skills and leadership qualities, but, even at the height of his worldly powers, he professed a great life weariness. Skills he had, but vision to inspire and drive and direct those skills were sorely lacking in him. Most crucially, the "Avrahamic" grasp of G-d's presence on earth, and man's responsibility to his fellow man, were missing from Esau's jaded perspective on life: "'Behold, I am going to die; so why do I need this birthright?'" (ibid 25:32) What greater self-indictment could possibly come forth from Esau's lips? He sees his own role in humanity as insignificant, and his historical impact as negligible. This is not the expression of a man from whose loins a great and holy nation is to emerge.


Yaakov, however, despite his handicaps vis-a-vis his talented brother Esau, readily grasped from the start what was at stake, and why it was imperative for him to not relent, but to gain possession, first of the birthright, and later of their father's blessing. For with the birthright and the blessing Yaakov knew that he could father and shape the great nation that G-d had promised to Avraham. He may not have had what it takes to be a great general, a celebrated statesman, or an accomplished politician, but the "innocent" Yaakov embodied the truth and the faith necessary to realize G-d's promise for him and his offspring.


What was so clear to Rivkah, eventually becomes clear to all. Whereas Esau grew faint, and as a result "scorned" and sold his birthright, Yaakov, later in his dramatic life, would lay down his head to sleep, and dream an awesome vision of heaven and earth united at the place of the Holy Temple.


The nation of Israel today faces the very same leadership challenge that vexed Yitzchak and Rivkah. The younger generation has served up the same two candidates. One the one hand, Israel has produced many young men and women whose worldly skills are unassailable: international finance, diplomacy, global relations, popular culture are all being impacted by up-and-coming Israelis. But do these young people of ambition and accomplishment possess the vision and the faith necessary to lead their own people, let alone the world?


On the other hand, there is a generation in the land of Israel that, like their forefather Yaakov, literally "dwell in tents:" In tents, in makeshift plywood shacks, and even in caves. These are the determined young men and women who make the very stones of the land of Israel their pillows, who are taking possession of the land, and whose vision for their people soars from the earth to the heavens, just like their father Yaakov. And like their father Yaakov, they do, indeed, lack the acceptance and worldly connections of Esau. But like their father Yaakov, they will not grow faint nor despise their birthright. A new generation is rising to the challenge.


Temple TalkTune in to this week's Temple Talk as Yitzchak Reuven and special guest host Yosef Adest, (filling in for Rabbi Chaim Richman who has just returned from the USA), discuss the uncanny resemblance that Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov each bear to Adam HaRishon, Yaakov playing his part in rectifying Adam's mistake of eating from the fruit of the tree of knowledge, and Yitzchak, the consummate keeper of the land of Israel. Modern day similarities to the the jealous Plishtim of Gerar, and Yosef reveals behind-the-scenes secrets of a soon-to-be released Temple Institute video all about the manufacture of the bigdei kehuna - priestly garments.
