The Church Of GOD Today.

Special note to clueless readers, (the Elect of GOD can skip this note):
With over two billions people living today totally believing and convinced that they are Christians (whatever that may mean to them) and even more claiming they believe in JESUS of the Christian Holy Scriptures, it must therefore be made abundantly clear that nearly all of these people will in all probably be totally clueless to the issues and events addressed and discussed in this post. Even those among these who might have some inkling (i.e. hazy and muddled idea) of what this post discussed, hardly any will believe the plain, clear and simple truth highlighted and expounded here.
This post discussed the state and condition of the one and only true Church of GOD that JESUS CHRIST established in 30 C.E.*** on the Day of Pentecost (aka Feast of First Fruits) through the giving of the promised HELPER, the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD (John 14:16; Luke 24:49; Acts 1:8, 2:1 – 4). Unless you are a member of the true Church of GOD begotten by GOD's HOLY SPIRIT after you had in genuine repentance made the commitment in Baptism and thereafter had faithfully continually at the appointed time, day and season and in the commanded manner (1 Corinthians 11:23 – 29; Luke 22:14 – 22) faithfully observed and kept the Passover Covenant, the New and Everlasting Covenant, made in the very BLOOD of JESUS CHRIST, you will in all probably be unable to relate to (and connect with) anything that is written here.
This however does not mean that clueless readers are not able to understand what is written here. Anyone who is truly (as opposed to falsely or pretending to be) sincere and is not given over to the unbridled lust of ego supergorging, and who in true (as opposed to a false self deceiving) humility with a genuine contrite repentant attitude would (or should anyway) be able to understand. And not just what this author testify to and expound here, but also what the Holy Christian Scriptures clearly and very plainly recorded.
Fact is every single member of GOD's Elect, the true Christian disciples of LORD JESUS, not only will understand what is written here but will also know for a certainty the truth of what is testified here. But many (probably the greater majority) will refuse to believe because of the lifting up of their hearts in their fixation on self glorification (aka ego supergorging) which is exactly what the Christian Holy Scriptures recorded some two thousand years ago:
Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see (Revelation 3:17 – 18)

The New Covenant Church of GOD (Matthew 16:18) which is the body (i.e from a Spiritual perspective) of LORD JESUS CHRIST (Colossians 1:24) and collectively of the membership is the New Covenant Temple (1 Corinthians 6:19; Ephesians 2:21; 2 Thessalonians 2:4) of GOD, was ‘born’ or was established or founded (came into existence officially) on the Day of Pentecost aka Feast of First Fruit, (Acts 2:1; Leviticus 23:15 – 17) fifty four days (Leviticus 23:16) after CHRIST’s death as the LAMB of GOD who takes away the sin of the world at Passover on the evening of the fourteen day of Nisan of the Sacred Calendar on Wednesday in 30 CE***.

Beginning from that time (Acts 2:1), Satan the Devil started his unceasing effort to try to destroy (Matthew 16:18) the Church of GOD, employing various means: from infiltration to persecution; from seduction to torture and murder. Right from the very beginning of the Apostolic era (recorded in the Books of Acts to Jude) the Church of GOD have been the target of Satan's relentless attempts to destroy it. Satan has been seeking to destroy the Elect (meaning those called by GOD into a covenant with HIM) or Saints (meaning those chosen among the Elect or Holy Ones) of GOD since the Garden of Eden and Satan has never stopped and will never stop until when he will be restrained (Revelation 20:1 – 3) and then finally put away forever (Revelation 20:10; Leviticus 16:20 – 22). The very first member of GOD's Saint, righteous Abel, was murdered by his own older brother Cain. From that time and through the Apostolic era, where most of the Apostles were martyred and many of the Elect murdered at the hands of firstly, the Jews, (later) the Romans and then by the Great Harlot through her religious sway over political rulers until her political clout was mostly taken from her through the Protestant Reformation. This Great Harlot Church will soon regain her political sway when the last Beast power arise. She will then with most of her harlots daughters (the numerous so called Christian denominations that came out of her, the Great Harlot Church, during the Protestant Reformation as well as all the numerous so called Christian sects thereafter which hold to the same Trinity, Easter and Sunday day of rest and worship doctrines) back in her fold commence her centuries old torture and murder of the Saints in the Great Tribulation at the very end of the Age of Man, Satan works his unceasing vehemence hatred for GOD and all those who are loyally and faithfully obeying GOD and LORD JESUS.


From Within The Ranks Of The Church Of GOD

Infiltrating the Church with his agents who then advanced themselves to prominent leadership positions, Satan’s disciples evicted those of the Elect (3 John 1:10) who opposed them from the many congregations of the Church of GOD which they had gained control over, turning these congregations apostate. These agents set themselves up as greater than the Apostles that GOD personally appoints, and forbid those in their congregations to receive GOD’s Apostles, putting any out of their congregations who would oppose them. In this manner throughout the centuries until today Satan the Devil have been able to replace whole congregations exactly as it did during the Apostolic and post Apostolic days. These had been clearly recorded in the Epistles of the Apostles (2 Corinthians 11:13; 2 Peter 2:1; 1 John 4:!; 2 John 1:7; 3 John 1:9 – 10) as well as in advance (i.e. prophesied) in the Book of Revelation (Revelation 2:14 - 16, 20 – 23; 3:1, 9, 16; 2 Thessalonians 2:3 – 4; Revelation 2:2). These are also clearly recorded in secular history and the historical records of the Christmas religion.

Agents of Satan the Devil began to infiltrate the first era (Revelation 2:1  7) of the Church of GOD very soon after her founding. In the beginning the Church stood fast against the onslaught of false disciples and prophets (Galatians 2:4; John 4:1; 2 Peter 2:1 – 3), and even false apostles (2 Corinthians 11:13, 26; Revelation 2:2) anchored by the Apostles such as Peter, John, Paul and the other elders who were eye witnesses to JESUS CHRIST’s ministry and life.

I know your works, your labor, your patience, and that you cannot bear those who are evil. And you have tested those who say they are apostles and are not, and have found them liars; and you have persevered and have patience, and have labored for My name’s sake and have not become weary.
Revelation 2:2 - 3

The advance history of the Church of GOD could be traced from the prophecy of Revelation 2 and 3. These established the framework to understand the timeline of prophecies from the Apostolic time to today (and onward until the very Day of the LORDexactly as the prophecy (Daniel 9:24  27) of the Prophet Daniel established the timeline of JESUS CHRIST First Advent as a SON of man to the vassal nation of Judea under the overlord of the Roman Empire.

Not long after all these elders and Apostles died, passing from the scene, Satan continued the relentless infiltration with his agents introducing destructive heresies promoting the celebration of what is claimed to be the day of baptism (or the revelation of divinity) and also the birthday of JESUS CHRIST (Revelation 2:6). This was rejected by the new leaders of this period (Revelation 2:2). But because JESUS did not return after Jerusalem fell to Roman forces in 70 C.E.*** forty years after JESUS’ death and resurrection) and not long later after the death of Apostle John, this Ephesus era became discouraged and soon began to lose focus, ceasing to do the work (Revelation 2:5) of preaching the Gospel message and became uncommitted in fully keeping the commandments of GOD (Revelation 2:4).

Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.
Revelation 2:4 - 5

As this was beginning to happen, GOD started raising up a new era in Smyrna from members who had stayed faithful and committed to obeying GOD, to keep HIS commandments of love, instructions and seeking to do HIS will and doing the work of preaching the Gospel message. This would be the pattern throughout these seven Church periods (Revelation 2 and 3) as each era ended its prophesied time slot in the framework of the Church of GOD’s journey from the days of its founding to the very End of the Age (Revelation 3:20).

Read in 1 Samuel chapter 16 how GOD raised up a new King for Israel in David after King Saul failed repeatedly to obey and be faithful to GOD. It was many years later after Saul had died before David finally ruled over all Israel. In a parallel account, read in the first few chapter of 1 Samuel, how Samuel grew from an infant replacing Eli and his sons to minister before GOD in all Israel because Eli set his sons who were evil, ahead of the GOD he ministered to (1 Samuel 3:12  13). Both these accounts helped to establish for us how GOD typically acts against HIS failed anointed, raising up another to take over the appointed position, role and job.

The Saints of the Smyrna period faced both persecutions from without: in the fourth Beast power of ancient Rome; and from within, in the false disciples and leaders of the Babylonian Mystery religion (Revelation 2:9) who had infiltrated and replaced many congregations of the Church of GOD. Most of the Saints from the Smyrna period were to become victims to the vicious persecution of the Beast power. Meanwhile Satan grew his churches throughout the reach of ancient Rome, from his agents, followers of the Babylonian Mystery religion that has taken on the name of Christianity and adopting some of its forms while corrupting its central doctrines with spins, lies and twisted truths. The end of this era was probably marked by the martyrdom (Revelation 2:10) of most of the disciples including the leaders and elders of this Smyrna era. Here was an era that seek and followed GOD’s will for them, dying (Revelation 2:10 last sentence) at the hands of their persecutors.

The end of the Pergamos Era also saw the Church of GOD dispersed (Acts 11:19) mostly to remote regions of civilization away from the headquarter based in Rome (Revelation 2:13). It would not be until the Thyatira Era that the world will see faints signs that the Church of GOD had survived both the vicious persecution of Rome, and that of the Catholic Church of the Antichrist through her 'fornications' with the Beast power.

The collapse of the Soviet Union between the mid 1980s to the early 1990s were to reveal in parts of the Ukraine, Sabbath keeping congregation that were remnants of the Church of GOD from both the Pergamos (those who also keep the Holy Days) and Thyatira era. These remnants are the Elect who are no longer part of the Church of GOD (Revelation 12:17) because they have ceased laboring for the message of the Gospel, which is doing the work of JESUS CHRIST just as the Sardis era ended because they had ceased from doing the work (Revelation 3:1 last part), of seeking and carrying out the will of THE FATHER (John 5:36; 14:10) to bear witness and testify to the message of the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST.

You can read a discussion of this journey of the the Church of GOD through the centuries prophesied and recorded in these seven churches on a mail route in Revelation chapters 2 and 3, explained in the chapter ‘The Elect’ in Bible 101*1  as well as in the post ‘The False Prophet’ of this blog.


The Church of GOD today.

In the journey of the Church of GOD through the centuries from the Apostolic days recorded as prophecies in Revelation Chapter 2 and 3, each era of the Church invariably ended when the leadership and membership became lackluster in they zeal for the work of preaching the message of the GospelGOD would then begin a new era in another congregation. The only exception was the Smyrna where the leadership was mostly martyred by the Romans. In most of these Churches, many to most of the membership would slowly but surely embrace destructive heresy and doctrines that took them away from the truth they were called into. Lust and greed are the roots to all sins, the greatest lust or greed is the lust of the self ego of which I have precisely worded as ‘ego supergorging’ meaning a super delusional image of the oneself as being superior to others in some or all desirable and important aspects.

In each of these seven eras, prophesy (Revelation 2 and 3) highlighted the main strengths, weaknesses, and trials faced by the membership together with their main failings, particularly those of leadership(s) i.e. the Angel(s) of each period. The time slots of some of these eras were short, spanning just a single generation of leadership before the era was ended by the succeeding generation through lack of zeal and commitment to GOD in the Covenant made in BLOOD of JESUS.

The sad and sorry state of the last era of the Church of GOD was prophesied in Revelation 3:14 to 19. This last era, the last stop revealed in a seven stops symbolic mail route, spanned at least two administrative leaderships or leadership changes (as of this writing 2010 – 2014 C.E.), and most probably there will be at least three (the last administration leading the Church through her three and half years in isolation in the place of ‘protection’ from Satan and his agents - Revelation 12:14 – 17). The first of these administrations was lukewarm (Revelation 3:15 - 16) claiming to love GOD but within the deceptiveness of their hearts each and every member in the leadership was pursuing his own agenda and self-expediency (Ezekiel 33:31). GOD allowed the Church (the collective administrative body which includes all the membership) to be taken over by the Son of Perdition to test and consequently revealed (i.e. exposed) their lukewarm (i.e. lackluster) attitudes and self-righteousness hypocrisy and bigotry. Sure enough hardly anyone fought for the truth, every leader scrambling to set up his own church (Ezekiel 34:1 - 10) to rule by his own views and ideas (Jeremiah 23:1 – 4) scattering the flock and allowing the Son of Perdition to turn that entire Church organization apostate. The lay members too were each and everyone more interested in pursuing his own life agenda seeking after the sensuality and materialism of this world (Ezekiel 33:31; 1 John 2:16) when they should all be passionate and fervent and about their FATHER's business (Luke 2:49; Matthew 7:21; John 4:34, 5:36, 14:10).

This event (the rise of the Son of Perdition to become the effective head and ruler over the Church) was the fulfillment of the Falling Away or Apostasy (Revelation 3:16; 2 Thessalonians 2:3) setting the stage for the great martyrdom in the Tribulation to come (Revelation 6:11; 7:14). JESUS vomited or spewed out all these as the Son of Perdition took over control of this globe-spanning congregation turning it apostate.

If you are indeed conversant with the records of the Christian Holy Scriptures (both the New and Old Testament records), you would have understood that when the chosen people (as a single entity, nation, body church or congregation) of GOD becomes unfaithful in their covenant agreement with GOD, HE would allow them to fall into the hands of their enemies and those who hated them. This is the consistent truth clearly and plainly recorded in the Holy Christian Scriptures.

During the times of the Judges whenever the Israelite ceased to be faithful in the Holy Covenant of the Ten Commandments that they and their fathers made with GOD in Mount Sinai at Horeb, GOD would allow them to fall into the hands and be ruled over by, oppressed and exploited by their enemies. This also happened during the period of the United and (later) the Divided Kingdom until finally both these nations ceased to exist as independent sovereign nation states because of their persistent unfaithfulness. GOD first had ancient Israel conquered and carried away by the Assyrians. Not too long after that the ancient Kingdom of Judah too was conquered and carried away into captivity by the Babylonians. Because of her consistent and persistent unfaithfulness in her Spiritual adulteries, GOD divorced ancient Israel (Jeremiah 3:8; Matthew 5:32) ending their Spiritual marriage covenant relationship with HIM when HE had that nation carried off from the Promised Land forever by their enemy, the Assyrians.

While ancient nation of Judah was also removed from their inheritance occupying the Promised Land because of the same persistent unfaithfulness of Spiritual adultery (Jeremiah 3:8 - 9) GOD did not divorce her (Judah) in order that HIS purpose and plan to redeemed all of humankind through the Promised Seed of Abraham (and also of David) be fulfilled, as also that HIS promises to the Patriarchs and to King David will be kept. For this cause and this reason seventy years later GOD returned Judah to the Promised Land as prophesied by Prophet Jeremiah, even though from after that time she (i.e. Judah as a nation) never fully regained (for any length of time) her sovereign nationhood as before. This was because ancient Judah after her returned to the Promised Land, never really repented (Jeremiah 3:10) from her unfaithfulness to GOD. No sooner than those Prophets and scribes, whom GOD raised up and used to lead Judah back, died and passed from the scene, that nation of Jews began to devise ways to deceitfully break the Holy Covenant of the Ten Commandments altering the commandments of GOD and the observing of the Holy Sabbaths, both the weekly seventh day Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths or Holy Days and Feasts (Matthew 15:3 - 8, 23:4 - 5; Mark 7:6 - 13; John 5:1; 6:4), to suit their wicked hypocritical self expedient ways and their holier than GOD (i.e ego supergorging) attitudes.

The pretense love for GOD and pretense desire for the advent of the MESSIAH by the Jews of the post Babylonian captivity is a type of the same pretense in the majority of the membership in the Church of GOD (as also true among the Elect outside the membership of the Church), from the ending period of the Philadelphia era until GOD spewed out that entire organization in the Laodicean era allowing them to fall into apostasy through the takeover by the Son of Perdition and his cohorts.

The Spiritual condition of the Church of GOD (and also the Saints), the last era which will witness the Second Advent of JESUS returning as LORD of Lords and KING of Kings, in the last days leading to the End of the Age is the most documented among all the seven eras (i.e. the Ephesus' to the Laodicea's). Of the most prophesied events of the Christian Holy Scriptures, the Spiritual condition of the Saints of GOD just before LORD JESUS Second Advent exceeds even that about the Day of the LORD in terms of volume of coverage. So if you think you know GOD and JESUS CHRIST and yet until today you still don't see this so clearly written in the Christian Holy Scriptures when we are so close to the end, seriously you need to take a second look at your Spiritual condition. I tell you surely unless you wake up from your self delusion thinking that you (and your religious organization body) are this so zealous, so noble, so righteous, and so faithful Sons of Zadok or/and Berean or/and Philadelpians so filled with brotherly love, and all the while lying to yourself pretending to be this super humble and contrite sinner; surely you will not escape the Tribulation that is to come upon this whole world as a thief in the night in the bitter vehemence rage of Satan.

For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.
Luke 21:35 – 36


Setting The Stage For The Great Martyrdom.

The stage for the last era was set in the era prior to it, prophesied in Revelation chapter 3 verse 10:
‘Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth.

This hour of trial of Revelation chapter 3 verse 10, follows on the end of the Philadelphia era when the Antichrist, the Son of Perdition was revealed. The revealing of the Son of Perdition marked the start of the last hour (1 John 2:18) of GODs time frame for this Age of Man (Daniel 2:44).

Many of those spewed out from the Church before and during this period have apportioned for themselves the title of being loving and zealous Philadelphian or of being Noble Bereans. Most of these are putting in their own interpretation of the term hour of trial’ refusing to understand the times and twisting the term to their own interpretation. Just as they do the reference to the woman’ describe in Revelation 12, deliberately misunderstanding what the symbol of a woman represents in Christian Biblical symbolism.

What they refused to accept is that the Philadelphia era is over and the primary Philadelphian (Messenger or Angel of the period Philadelphia) has died and the whole of the membership of Church of GOD that followed from that era had been spewed out (Revelation 3:16) because they were lukewarm (Ezekiel 33:30 - 33). GOD in the meantime having raised up another leader and congregation as the first messenger/angel (administrative head or pastor general of this last era) began to succumb to the takeover by the Son of Perdition and his followers, the disciples of the Satan. GOD had allowed this to reveal the lack of a real love for GOD in the membership that consists mostly of those called in the previous era (Ezekiel 33:30 - 33). All these were revealed nearly two thousand years ago in the book of Revelation.

If you could believe the accounts of Revelation chapter 2 and chapter 3, you would see that the takeover of the Church of GOD either partly or totally by Satanic agents also occurred in at least four other era of the Church of GOD. These are namely Ephesus (Revelation 2:5), Pergamos (Revelation 3:14 - 16), Thyatira (Revelation 2:30 - 23) and Sardis (Revelation 3:4). For the Elect who were the remnants of the Philadelphia period you should recall al least two periods when the agents of Satan attempted to take over the Church of GOD in that era but were thwarted (Revelation 3:9) by the Angel or Messenger of the period.

These ‘Laodiceans’ talk of two groups of GOD’s people, one who will be taken to be protected from Satan and the other that will go into the Tribulation. Each and every single one of them refusing to recognize that one is the Church of GOD (the woman’ mentioned in Revelation 12:4 - 6, 13 - 16) and the other group is the rest of her offspring (Revelation 12:17), those people who keeps GOD’s commandments and Covenant but who are not in the Church (Matthew 16:18). All have subscribed themselves as the zealous faithful or the Bereans or the Philadelphians standard or the sons of Zadok. Each and every one of them the defining standard of GOD’s righteousness and love. They have blinded themselves from seeing the clearly written words of the Scripture of Truth that testified to the fact that they are ‘wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.’

For those who claimed themselves Philadelphians’ understand this - the Philadelphians’ reward (verse 12) was for persevering (verse 10), persevering in keeping GOD’s Word and not denying GOD’s NAME. Their key trial is to stop fixing their eye on some men and following after men. Their eyes should be fixed on GOD and JESUS CHRIST. That was what they needed to overcome. But sad to say almost none of them did. Their key failure was the resulting era, the last era of Laodicea. An era of self willed self serving leaders and members who seek their own expediencies and to rule by their own dictates rather then fixing their eyes on GOD and seeking HIS will and directions. The bulk of these have neither kept GOD’s NAME nor HIS Words, instead choosing to embrace and celebrate the ludicrous rather than the Truth. The rest however did not fare any better each puffed up by their self righteous hypocrisy believing in their deceitful hearts that they are rich (full of good works and righteousness) and have need of nothing, refusing to believe the Scripture of Truth that testified to their being totally devoid of any righteousness (naked), and needing to be clothed with the righteousness (white garments) that is from GOD.

JESUS CHRIST emphatically told them that they are, wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked’ and advised them to be zealous and repent.’

This last era has a first administration which JESUS vomited or spewed out. These Children of the Woman if they do not repent of their lukewarm and self righteous attitude will bear the brunt of Satan's wrath at the hands of the Beast power in the Tribulation.

Unfortunately the second administration too has a serious fault. Puffed up with self-righteousness, it has become blinded to its own evil hypocrisy. The messenger and leader that GOD raised up has been hypocritically twisting and perverting GOD's Word and Truth with this own self righteous doctrines and interpretations of the Scriptures hijacking the Word of GOD to his tunnel vision of preaching against the Laodiceans not being able to see (Isaiah 42:18 - 20) that he has been hypocritically judging and testifying against himself.

The good news is that they, the Church of GOD, will repent of this (Joel 2:15 - 18) and many who have wandered far off from the truth will still repent and overcome their self righteous ego supergorging in time to escape the Tribulation (Zechariah 6:15). But because he did not repent and hardened his heart, the leader or messenger (pastor generally) will die as a consequence from an ailment of the heart because of his unbelief and arrogantly embracing wickedness and evil in order to advance himself and his own self image. This messenger would virtually be (i.e. for all intent and purpose) thrown into the Lake of Eternal Fire (Zechariah 3:2 last sentence) but by the merciful Grace of GOD, GOD spared him and corrected him so that he should fulfill and perform the purpose (Isaiah 14:24; Romans 9:11) that GOD had raised him up to finish. GOD will resurrect him (Zechariah 3:2) and correct (Zechariah 3:7) him to finish the work for which he has been appointed (Zechariah 3:8). This is prophecy for today.

Here I need to emphasis a point about the Church of GOD and the Elect of GOD. If you are going to be able to identify the Church of GOD today, you have to understand and believe the prophecy of Revelation chapters 2 and 3. If you choose to reject these prophecies or chose to pervert their messages you might as well forget about continuing to read the work of this author or the Christian Bible. Just go and make up your own religion instead of pretending to be a Christian claiming that your religion is based on the teaching and preaching and JESUS and HIS Apostles just as all of mainstream “Christianity” and most of the rest of professed Christianity have been ever since picking and choosing which Scriptures to believe that suits their self expedient agenda and rejecting or twisting the rest with the deceitful cope out saying, ‘You just can't take these Scriptures literally.’ So they choose which to take literally and which to ‘figure’ a way to do away with so they won't have to obey GOD to keep and honor the New and Everlasting Covenant because it is not convenient for them to do so.

A natural question would be, ‘Why would GOD throw out all HIS Elects or allow HIS Church to be taken over by Antichrists?’ Why would GOD let the Son of Perdition and Antichrists take over HIS Church? The answer is right there, because they are neither zealous for HIS Work nor HIS Truth. And even though from external appearance they are keeping GOD commandments and honoring HIS Covenant, they are also practicing wickedness and lawlessness by rejecting HIS rule over them exactly as the ancient nation of Israel rejected HIM as their KING (1 Samuel 8:7). They (the leaders) all wanted to rule (Matthew 15:13) and not be ruled over whereas the lay members want to have their way, doing their own will seeking after meaningless gain of this temporary life counting them as more important than the eternal inheritance and glory that awaits all those who are fully committed to love GOD. That is why they pick and choose rather than seek the Kingdom of GOD and the righteousness of GOD (Matthew 6:33). I hope you can see that it is all about a self-expediency (John 12:25) of lust and greed which is contrary to serving GOD, following the example of JESUS CHRIST (Matthew 10:38; 16:24 - 27; Luke 9:23 - 25).

When it comes to the commandments, instructions and charges of GOD, if you break anyone one of these be it even the least you are a sinner. And the wages of sin is death, forever death. That is why every man (and woman) is under the death penalty because of sin. For everyone has sin and fail to live up to the requirement of the commandments of GOD which are not burdensome (1 John 5:3) nor impossible to be obeyed and kept (Luke 1:6; 2 Peter 2:21). More will be elaborated on this in the chapters, ‘Sin, Grace And The Commandments Of GOD’ and ‘GOD IS of Bible 101*1.

If you break one commandment you break them all. If you obey every single law of your country but one, you are a lawbreaker because of that one that you did not obey. If you are caught and found out, you will be prosecuted for breaking that one law and punished according. That is the reason all these Elects and Saints are transgressing. They have hardened their hearts and stopped up their ears from hearing the voice of JESUS CHRIST, refusing to obey HIS commandment to be zealous and repent (Revelation 3:18 - 19) as they rather pursue after their lust and greed for all manner of material, sensual and vain things.

In the journey of the Church of GOD through the centuries from the Apostolic days recorded as prophecies in Revelation Chapter 2 and 3, each era (i.e. time period) of GOD'S Church invariably ended when the leadership and membership became lackluster in they zeal for the work of preaching the message of the GospelGOD would then begin a new era in another congregation. The only exception was the Smyrna where the leaderships were martyred by the Romans. In most of these Church administrations, many to most of the membership would slowly but surely embrace destructive heresy and doctrines that took them away from the truth they were called and converted into. Lust and greed are the roots to all sins, the greatest lust or greed is the lust of the self ego of which I have precisely worded as ‘ego supergorging’ meaning a super delusional image of the oneself as being superior to others in some or all desirable and important aspects.

In each of these seven eras, prophesy (Revelation 2 and 3) highlighted the main strengths, weaknesses, and trials faced by the membership together with their main failings, particularly those of the leadership (i.e. the Angel or Messenger or Emissary) of each period. The time periods of some of these eras were short, spanning just a single generation (and administration) of leadership before that era was soon ended by the succeeding generation lack of zeal and commitment to GOD in the Covenant made in BLOOD of JESUS.

From the very beginning of the Church of GOD at her founding on the Day of Pentecost (aka Feast of Firstfruits) never ever absent from each era, within each era of GOD's Church among the membership and especially so among the leadership (i.e. elders), were always the agents of the Evil Adversary, Satan the Devil. Working both within the Church of GOD as well as without, they worked deceitfully to turn the Saints of GOD to lies and evil practices that would cause the Saints to first both break the Everlasting Covenant made in the BLOOD of JESUS as well the Spiritual intent of the Royal Laws and Holy Commandments.

Satan attacks on both mankind and Angels have always been directed on the emotion cravings in all manners of lust. Of these the greatest and psychologically most damaging (i.e. most destructive) would be the lust of the self image, the lusts of self glorification most commonly expressed in the power lust of wanting to rule, to force the person's self perceived supremely superior judgments, views and values upon and over everyone. This however do not mean that other forms of lust are less destructive, they are not but just are easier for the person who is fully and sincerely committed to overcome, whereas the lust of the ego (aka ego supergorging) is very ingrained in the personage's psyche contributing to a self deception that the Christian Holy Scriptures recorded as ‘incurable’.

The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure [incurable YLT].
Who can understand it?
Jeremiah 17:9 [NIV]


JESUS CHRIST said, Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven.

Those who cast out demons in CHRIST’s name and performed powerful miracles in HIS name will not enter in the Kingdom, not unless they are also doing (living and carrying out) the will of GOD, the work of the FATHER.


JESUS CHRIST said, If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me.

The same conditional applies to JESUS CHRIST (John 5:30; 6:38) when HE walked as a son of man. There is no partiality with GOD. That is why all of the Elect were spewed out because they are not seeking the will of GOD and doing the work of GOD. They are doing their own will, their own self-expedient agenda (Ezekiel 33:31 -33). They are self-expediently pursuing their own gains in all that they lusted after. All are focused on advancing their own temporary lives. Yes the leaders and the lay members almost every single one of them that is why JESUS CHRIST spewed them out, all of them.

Some may then ask this author, ‘What about you. What is all these talk about others being lukewarm, self-expedient, self-righteous, wicked, blind, naked, etc. Where do you fit in all this?’

Now if you have to ask that question, in all likelihood you would not believe a single word I say anyway, so why ask? You have already form your opinion of me whether this be positive or negative, which I grant is your entitlement. I make no claims to anything except that as I have been given to understand so I faithfully write and speak. These things that are written here are not from my imagination or understanding. If you would be honest and sincerely seeking to learn the true message of the Christian Bible you can easily verify all that I write here is consistent with the message of the Scripture of Truth (John 7:16 - 17). I have not written or spoken anything here on my own cognizance.

Whereas the teaching of mainstream “Christianity” today really have no basis in the Christian Bible but are the personally developed beliefs and doctrines of some man or men from the past who no one living today personally knows. Just because they borrowed a few ideas from the Christian Holy Scriptures such as grace and forgiveness and some names of personages from the same Scriptures does not mean that they are teaching, advocating and advancing the message of these Scriptures. Fraudsters and confidence tricksters use this methodology and strategy all the time to trick and defraud their victims, dropping names and laying fraudulent claims to their special relationship with prominent personalities, politicians or royalties.

The reason almost the whole world of “Christianity” followed after them is because these choose to believe their message and doctrines which I have shown clearly and conclusively in my book Bible 101 that they are contrary to the teaching of the Christian Holy Scriptures, translated into the Christian Bible (not the Catholic Bible or the Catholic Catechism doctrines)

Even the very Elects of GOD inside and outside of the Church of GOD (Revelation 12:17) today, while they still preached most of the doctrines of JESUS CHRIST and are keeping most of the commandments of GOD THE FATHER and the LORD JESUS CHRIST, have strayed and set their personal agenda and self-expediency ahead of the will of the FATHER (Matthew 7:21; 12:50; Mark 14:36) which was and still is the work of JESUS CHRIST (John 10:37; 5:36; 10:25, 32; 14:10 - 11).

Most (if not all) have also embraced many lies and quite a number of the evil doctrines of the Christmas religion. Throughout the records of the Holy Christian Scriptures if you have the eyes to see it, GOD had always allowed HIS people to be conquered and ruled over by their enemies when they reject HIS rule over them by disobedience to HIS commandments and breaking HIS Covenant through seeking and having alliances with pagan religion or nations to seek to be like these nations. This is clearly and undisputedly recorded in the Christian Holy Scriptures from the time of the Judges through the United and Divided Kingdom until the Jews (Matthew 23:38) of the time of the Gospel when they rejected JESUS CHRIST and had HIM murdered. Their nation then even just as a vassal of Rome (among the other earlier Empires that had ruled over them) soon ceased to exist because they never truly and fully returned (Jeremiah 3:10) to HIM after GOD returned the Jews from their captivity and exile not long after the Babylonian Kingdom was conquered by Mede Persia.


All I that I write here will cause me to be hated by those whom I spoke against, both Saints and sinners (Luke 21:17) even as Satan, the god of this Age has been unrelenting in his attack (as much as he can without a direct revolt against GOD) on me ever since. Once this writings start to gain a large audience, the words that I write here will be misquoted and quoted out of context, twisted and maligned to ridicule and condemn me (Matthew 11:18 - 19), even as they have already been by some who have read my work. Every self-proclaimed “expert” and “authority” will persecute me because I speak the truth of the Holy Christian Scriptures (John 15:20; 8:40) which exposes their lies, evil deceptions and self-expediencies. This is not a world that loves the Truth. No, no even the Church of GOD and the Saints of GOD today (Revelation 3:17 - 18).

They have all turned aside, they have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one.

The End of the Age is not so far away that it will not be in the lifetime of most of those who read this. To the Church of GOD and the Elects of GOD today, ‘after such a long time, as it has been said: “Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts.

To all and sundry who read this whether you believe or not; when all these things come to pass as they surely will, I pray that you will not harden your heart to continue on in disbelief. Because when all these start to be fulfilled, there will be great signs and wonders and all manner of deceptions to deceive all those in the world (Matthew 24:24; Revelation 12:9). Many then will be running after all the numerous ‘Chicken Littles’ that will arise in those days.

The entire record of the Christian Bible as the full unabridged version of the Gospel message, for those who have the eyes to see, is the historical record of GOD bringing to birth HIS HOLY DIVINE Family recorded in advance so the purpose and foreknowledge of GOD can be made known that GOD indeed does know all things, having total and absolute control over all things that no purpose of HIS can be hindered much less thwarted (Ecclesiastes 3:14).


Elijah Truly Is Coming First.

Before JESUS CHRIST first advent, John the Baptist came ahead of HIM to announce HIS first coming as had been prophesied. The Jews, (the scribes and experts of the religion), of those days understood correctly that a Type of Elijah (Malachi 4:5; Matthew 17:10) would come first to announce the coming of the MESSIAH. Only trouble was with them, these scribes, priests and religious experts, they just willfully refused to believe.

The fulfillment of these prophecies did not fit into what they had projected and expected, and they did not like the fact that not only were they not acknowledged by the John the Baptist or by JESUS CHRIST, but were actually rebuked by both. They held themselves the epitome and yardstick of religiousness and righteousness, the ultimate authority (John 7:47 - 49) of their field and refused to see their self-expediency (Matthew 15:1 - 9), willful ignorance, arrogance, hypocrisy and their consequential wickedness (Mark 7:9 - 13).

Likewise too the religious authorities of today whether be they: the professed “Christians” of the Christmas religion, or the very Elect of GOD, both in and outside of the Church of GOD, all the leaders, elders and members alike. All these rejected the testimonies of the Scripture of Truth that rebuke and correct them, clinging on to their religious traditions refusing to believe and to repent.

We divert a little here to mention the concept of Dualism in the Scriptures. Dualism is another one of the many crucial keys to help us understand the message of the Christian Bible. Dualism is a symbolic principle of two or more fulfillment of a Christian Biblical event, personality or prophecy, with one being the actual and the rest a Type fulfillment of it. JESUS CHRIST was: a Type of Adam, the first man (1 Corinthians 15:47) carnally focused while JESUS the first man spiritually focused, and therefore is also the actual fulfillment of man ‘in the image and likeness of GOD’ (Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15) of which Adam was a Type; as well as a Type of Moses (Deuteronomy 18:15) in the context of being the messenger and mediator of the covenant with GOD.

The Passover that instituted during the time when Israelite were enslaved in Egypt was a Type of the New Covenant Passover which JESUS CHRIST instituted with new symbols to represent HIS flesh and BLOOD before HE suffered. JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF being the Passover LAMB. JESUS was thus the fulfillment of the Passover lambs that were killed as part of the first covenant Passover ceremonial sacrifice, the blood on their doorposts of which spared the first born of Israel when the Angel killed all the first born of Egypt. The Passover lambs sacrificed annually by the ancient Israelites during the annual Passover commemoration according to the Law of Moses were a Type of which JESUS CHRIST was the Actual fulfillment.

More is discussed on the Passover in the chapter ‘The Sabbath and The Holy Days’ of Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded*1. Read more about Dualism and Types in ‘The Keys To Unlocking The Myster Part 4’ of the blog, ‘The Holy Bible Expounded’.


JESUS disciples when they began to understand that HE was the CHRIST, was puzzled:

And they asked Him, saying, “Why do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?”
Mark 9:11


JESUS told them that indeed a Type of Elijah would be coming first to restore all things. While John the Baptist himself (John 1:23) claimed he fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah (Isaiah 40:3), John the Baptist made no mention of himself fulfilling the prophecy of Malachi.

Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD. And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.
Malachi 4:5 - 6


But JESUS said that John the Baptist was indeed also a Type of the Elijah who must to come first.

But I say to you that Elijah has come already, and they did not know him but did to him whatever they wished. Likewise the Son of Man is also about to suffer at their hands.
Matthew 17:12

But in that answer JESUS also explicitly said that there will be another Elijah Type who will come to restore all things before HIS Second Coming, who will be the Actual fulfillment of the ‘Elijah the prophet Before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD’ prophesied by the Prophet Malachi, who would be coming first to restore all things.

Jesus answered and said to them, Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will restore all things.
Matthew 17:11


Needless to say none of HIS disciples of those days understood this, none of them fully comprehend this symbolic concept of Dualism, even among those who actually testified to and recorded it (Romans 5:14; 1 Corinthians 5:7) in the Scripture of Truth. Not even after HE had suffered, died and was resurrected did they understand (Acts 1:6) what JESUS had told hem. That, just as the prophecy concerning HIS coming was Dual so also that which concerned the Elijah Type. In fact the whole of the Book of Malachi has Dual fulfillment, one before CHRIST first advent and again before HE will return to destroy the wicked. The first fulfillment was in the hypocritical self glorifying self righteous priesthood in that Jewish vassal nation and the Actual fulfillment is in the Church of GOD today and the Elect of GOD today just before JESUS' Second Advent. There is the same pretense to love GOD and to be earnestly seeking JESUS' coming but in reality as is reflected in their conduct and life pursuit they are all very arrogantly deceiving their followers but worse they have totally chosen to deceive themselves to support their own self image projection.


Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the LORD.

And not only was the Elijah Type who would come before CHRIST in both HIS: First Advent (to mediate the New Everlasting Covenant); and Second Advent (to restore the Kingdom of GOD to the Promise Land), not understood but the full role of the Elijah Type was also not understood by the Jews then as well as the Elect of GOD today.

Nearly all of GOD's Elect have focused on Elijah coming (before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the LORD) to restore all thing, they have completely left out the most important aspect of his role, the very reason that he, the Elijah Who Is Coming First, will be sent to restore all things. The Elijah Type has two crucial role, John the Baptist as a Type only fulfilled one of the two roles. The one that was fulfilled by John the Baptist was his role as the Elijah Type:

And he will turn
The hearts of the fathers to the children,
And the hearts of the children to their fathers,
Lest I come and strike the earth with a curse

Malachi 4:6

John the Baptist fulfilled the Type role of preparing a small calling of faithful followers from among the Jews living in those days (turning these few to the faith of the just) preparing to accept JESUS in HIS First Advent. These were the Apostles and few faithful who stayed the course of those three and a half years until JESUS died and was resurrected and taken up to the FATHER's Throne. The actual number was recorded in the book of Acts as of around a hundred and twenty who obeyed and were gathered together on that Day of Pentecost in 30 C.E.*** when JESUS started the Church of GOD with these some hundred and twenty individual. If you are conversant with the records of the Holy Christian Scriptures you would know (or should know anyway) that some five hundred disciples were actually witnesses to JESUS for some forty days after HIS resurrection after being three and a half days in the grave (i.e. Greek - hades or Hebrew - sheol; the literal meaning is given here contrary to the numerous twisted interpretation and mistranslation that you may find). Yet only around a hundred and twenty disciples obeyed HIS command to tarry in Jerusalem (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4 – 5) until they were given POWER through the giving of the HOLY SPIRIT (Acts 1:8, 2:1 – 4). The shortfall in numbers from some five hundred to around a hundred and twenty, were all those too preoccupied with their own self focused agenda and lust driven priorities to obey the direct command from LORD JESUS.

Many if not most among these hundred and twenty faithful disciples of JESUS during HIS three and a half years ministry were those prepared and baptized by John the Baptist. As John called the Jews who were the people of GOD by covenant (the Old Covenant) to repent, so also the Elijah Type fulfillment is calling the Saints, the Elect of GOD of the New Covenant: to repent of the pursuit of their own lives and self glorification; to stop strutting around glorifying in their "great superior" knowledge, wisdom, understanding and righteousness. Additional to that, the work of the final Elijah Type fulfillment would also be key to preparing a following from the genealogical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who have not accepted the New Covenant by the time of the Tribulation to finally do so before the Day of the LORD.

Understand that the Elijah Type role is of turning the hearts of the people of GOD from their unfaithfulness and disobedience back to repentance and obedience in faith. JESUS talking about HIS Second Advent specifically posed this question to HIS Apostles and disciples, 'Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?' That should clearly spell out to all the Saints, the Elect of GOD what the main issue with them would be the obedience of faith, not wanton disobedience pandering and obeying their greed and lust resorting to lies in order to advance themselves and their own self image, pretending to not understand what the Scripture plainly and clearly recorded.


So Has Elijah Already Come? [elijah]

Some in the Church of GOD today believed that the Elijah Type prophesied to come before the great and dreadful Day of the LORD was already here and had since died. Others don’t think so. Some held the view that the Church of GOD fulfills that role of the Elijah Type. Others still, believed it will be in the persons of the two witnesses mentioned in the book of Revelation.

For now and here I will just say, Indeed, Elijah comes first and restores all things.

And he will turn the heart of the FATHER to the children, and the hearts of the children to their FATHER.

Otherwise GOD will totally destroy all life on this planet earth.

Let he who understand, understand. And to the rest, Hearing you will hear, and shall not understand; And seeing you will see, and not perceive.

Because they have stopped up their ears from hearing the voice of GOD and hardened their hearts in arrogant disbelief. They claimed to believe in GOD but they refused to believe what the Scripture of Truth clearly and plainly testified to. They claimed to love the truth but GOD have proven them to be liars. They claimed to love GOD but each and every one has gone forth to pursue his own righteousness, his own gain and vain glorying (Ezekiel 33:31), following after his own agenda and self-expediency. Every elder and leader setting himself up to rule over and feed on the sheep (Jeremiah 23:1 – 3; Ezekiel 34:1 – 10) rather than be ruled and led by JESUS and GOD.

Otherwise they surely would have seen and understood. With their mouth they professed much love (Ezekiel 33:31) for GOD, but their deeds have borne witness against them that they loved only themselves (John 12:25).


Go to this people and say:

Hearing you will hear, and shall not understand;
And seeing you will see, and not perceive;
For the hearts of this people have grown dull.
Their ears are hard of hearing,
And their eyes they have closed


A False Elijah Type.

Now be sure there will also be a false Elijah Type in the person of the False Prophet (Revelation 13:11 - 12), claiming himself as the fulfillment of the Elijah Type. The Scripture of Truth already revealed it some two thousand years ago.

He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.
Revelation 13:13


But despite what the Holy Christian Scripture had clearly revealed, prophesied some two thousand years ago yet when this False Prophet is revealed and claimed to be the Elijah Type, the whole world will believe and will heed (Acts 8:9 - 11) his call to worship the Beast and to make an image of the Beast and to worship this image even as millions since to over a billion people today have been so worshiping.

And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.
Revelation 13:14 – 15


The Prophecy Of The Prophet Malachi Was Dual. [maldual]

Just as JESUS CHRIST coming would be Dual, so also the advance warning of both these comings. The Elijah Type to announce JESUS CHRIST's coming (both) too would also be Dual. First there was John the Baptist (as a Type fulfillment of this prophesy) when JESUS first came to pay the penalty of mankind's sin and to redeem all man from the consequence of their sins through the New Everlasting Covenant that HE mediated with HIS death and made in HIS BLOOD as the Passover LAMB of GOD.

Now in this end of the Age of Man before JESUS CHRIST’s Second Coming to destroy all the wicked, there would be another Elijah Type (the actual fulfillment of this Malachi's prophesy of which John the Baptist was a Typeto correct the Church of GOD as well as the rest of the Elect who had ceased to seek GOD’s will and directions, but have instead been establishing their own self righteousness (Revelation 3:17) in pursuit of their own self expediency (Ezekiel 33:31), ruling according to their self centered agenda (to advance themselves in the supergorging of their egos) and authority (deciding how the Church of GOD is be run, ruled and organized and what work is to be done) rebelling against the HEAD of the Church of GOD, LORD JESUS CHRIST (Ephesians 1:22; 5:23; Colossians 1:18). JESUS have always done and always will do the will of HIS FATHER (John 5:19; Matthew 17:5). The Elijah Who Is To Come prophesied in the Book of Malachi would be fulfilled in a lone voice in the religious wilderness (wasteland) that followed on the Son of Perdition taking over that organization after the death of the first Messenger of the last era of the Church of GOD, the Church of GOD in Laodicea.

The Son of Perdition would eventually then turned all those Elect who remained in the defunct Church to apostasy (falling away), into the apostasy of the Christmas religion. The death of the first Messenger officially marked the spewing forth of all the Elect (Revelation 3:16) and also marked the end of the first administration as the Church of GOD in Laodicea. The death of the first Messenger also marks the official beginning of the term of the second administration under the second Messenger that GOD had raised up and prepared several years before. That was the point the second administration (i.e. the second Messenger) took over role as the Church of GOD in Laodicea

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.
“But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”
Matthew 7:15 – 26

The fulfillment to the prophesied Elijah Who Is To Come first is defined by his prophesied work. This is just as the definitive of JESUS as the MESSIAH, the MEDIATOR or MESSENGER of the Covenant was in HIS work.

But I have a greater witness than John’s; for the works which the Father has given Me to finish—the very works that I do—bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent Me. 
John 5:36

Then the Jews surrounded Him and said to Him, “How long do You keep us in doubt? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.”
Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe. The works that I do in My Father’s name, they bear witness of Me
John 10:24 – 25

Likewise the whole of the prophecy of the Prophet Malachi was Dual. Read it and understand where today the Church of GOD would be going astray and sinning against the GOD whom they (the Elect) claimed to served. In truth they all have been only serving themselves, exactly as the chief priest and the religious authorities during JESUS First Advent were doing (Matthew 23:4-7, 13 – 28). Read the Gospel accounts on what JESUS had to say against these who would claim themselves as the epitome and standard of religious righteousness and understanding in Matthew chapter 23.


Next Series Of Events (As Had Been Revealed In The Scripture of Truth) To Watch For In The Church of GOD.*2
1. A faithful few (relatively) both from inside and outside of the Church of GOD will repent of their self-expediency, ego gorging self righteousness and their lukewarm attitude towards GOD's work.
2. Death of the second Messenger, the Worthless Shepherd of the Sheep, of the Church of GOD in Laodicea would followed several years after that Worthless Shepherd would have lost his right eye and arm (as a final warning punishment revealing to him as absolute proof that he is that prophesied Worthless Shepherd of the Sheep calling on him to repent). This second Messenger will be resurrected back to life to complete his work (that which GOD assigned and ordained for him to do) in the period of the Tribulation thus fulfilling the prophesy of Luke 16:31.
3. The nations which are populated by the current generation of the genealogical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will begin to persecute the Church and the Elect, just as the Jews during the Apostolic age did. It is this persecution of GOD's Church and GOD's Elect (i.e. those outside of the fellowship of the Church) that would lead to these nations falling under the hands, defeated and conquered by the Beast power. This was exactly what happened at the hands of the Roman empire to the ancient Jews who persecuted the Apostles and disciples of JESUS. The ancient Roman Empire was the first instance of the Fourth Kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar's dream vision. Numerous prophecies of the Biblical Prophets testified that the present day genealogical descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (symbolically referred to in the Christian Holy Scriptures as Israel, Samaria or Jacob) will be captives and scattered in the nations of the world prior to JESUS CHRIST's Second Advent. Many of the prophecies of the Prophets such as Amos, Hosea, Obadiah (to the modern day descendants of the ancient nation of Israel) and Joel (to the Church of GOD today) were dual, having two separate fulfillments, one as a Type of ancient Kingdom of Israel being conquered and carried away from their land (and never returning including losing their identity as the descendants of the Biblical Patriarchs), and the other the actual where the surviving members of modern day Israelite would be finally corrected in their captivity and returned to the Promise Land (Hosea 3:5) at the coming (second) of the JUST ONE to restore the Kingdom (Acts 1:6 – 7). The persecution of the Church of GOD and the rest of the Elect would be precipitated by the Beast suffering a mortal wound and miraculously recovering.
4. Under the last Messenger, the Church of GOD in Laodicea will finally repent in Jerusalem (Zechariah 3:6 – 8; Joel 2:12 – 17). Many of the Elect outside of the Church prior to that time will also joined the Church. However most of the Elect would still refused to believe and refused to repent of their ego gorging lust. The majority of these will only repent after the Church would have fled and the Two Witnesses would have arose to begin their three and a years of testimony.
5. The forces of the Beast surround Jerusalem. The Church of GOD (symbolized in the woman of Revelation 12 verses 13 to 17) flees from the forces of the Beast (Revelation 12:14). The forces of the Beast will pursue seeking to destroy the Church of GOD but will be thwarted (Revelation 12:15 – 16) by GOD's miraculous protection. Thirty days later the Two Witnesses will start their 1260 days prophecy in Jerusalem as the forces of the Beast sets up the Abomination of Desolation (Daniel 12:11).
6. The rest of the woman's (i.e. Church of GOD's) children who are not in fellowship with the Church, most of the remnants of the Elect, will then only begin to repent (when the Two Witnesses begin their work) but too late to escape the Tribulation (Revelation 12:17) at the hands of the False Prophet and her disciples through the power authority of the Beast.
7. Within forty days Jerusalem will be overran by the army of the Beast. The King(s) of the South (Daniel 7:6) will attack the Beast power (Daniel 11:40) only to be completely overwhelmed.
8. Two and a half years after the Church would have fled and the Two Witnesses would have began their prophesied work, the Day of the LORD will commence with heavenly signs. This would also be two and a half years after the start of the Tribulation.
9. At the end of the 1260 days of their witnessing work and testimonies, these Two Witnesses will be killed by the Beast power and their bodies put on display while the whole world rejoices (Revelation 11:7 – 10). The identity of these Two Witnesses were revealed nearly two thousand years ago to the Apostle John as also initially much earlier through the Prophet Zechariah (Zechariah 4:14, 3, 11 – 13; Revelation 11:3 – 4) and they became known when they both were revealed (Zechariah 4:14; Revelation 11:4) one after another in the Church of GOD not too many years ago (i.e. from 2010 C.E.). Read the chapter, ‘The Elect’ of Bible 101 – The Holy Bible Expounded to find out who these two men would be.
10. Three and a half days later these Two Witnesses will come back to life and will be taken up to heaven (Revelation 11:11 – 12) as simultaneously all the dead in CHRIST will be resurrected (1 Thessalonian 4:.15 - 16). Those of the Elect who are alive at that time will be instantly changed into Spirit (1 Corinthians 15:50 – 52; 1 Thessalonian 4:17). This event marks (1 Corinthians 15:52; Revelation 11:15) the return of JESUS CHRIST and is symbolized by the Feast of Trumpets as the framework of GOD's process for the redemption and salvation of all of mankind (all who would repent). This first resurrection is the First Fruit of GOD's HOLY SPIRIT born Children being finally born as HOLY SPIRIT (as opposed to dust or physical matter) composed personages of which LORD JESUS resurrection three days and three nights after HIS death as the LAMB of GOD to redeem all mankind, was the very FIRST as a Type.
11. The seven last plagues (the Seven Bowl Plagues of Revelation chapter 16) begins and lasted between 30 to 45 days (Daniel 12:13) culminating in the Battle of Armageddon or the Battle of the Hill/Valley of Megiddo where the Beast and the False Prophet will be captured and killed.
12. The New World Order and Millennium with Satan the Devil no longer on the throne (as a ruling authority) of the earth. This is the one thousand years under JESUS CHRIST’s rule over the nations from Jerusalem which officially begins when Satan the Devil will be seized and bound for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1 – 3; Leviticus 16:20 – 22). This is signified in the Feast Of Atonement as the framework of GOD's process for the redemption and salvation of all of mankind (all those who would repent).
