EUROPE 2018

“We Europeans will have to take our fate into our own hands.” (German Chancellor Angela Merkel)

As we watch history unfold, we can see that much of what Jesus Christ revealed to His Church has already come to pass. Note that the message has not changed! From the beginning, the focus has been on the Resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire, even when Germany was laid waste at the end of the Second World War! Here are a few quotes to prove the point:

1947 - “In America, we had heard and read about the war daily. We had seen pictures and newsreels. But now my wife and I were there, where it happened. Here was the actual devastation of war all around us. Now it suddenly became real!

The Marshall Plan and American dollars had not yet made progress toward restoration. Europe was laid waste, many of its cities in ruins. Almost no one believed, then, that Europe could ever rise again. Yet I had been persistently proclaiming for two years [SINCE 1945], over the air and in The Plain Truth, that Germany would once again come to economic and military power, heading a ten-nation resurrection of the Roman Empire.(The Autobiography - Chapter 54)


1950 - “The world will be stunned to see Germany emerge suddenly in a power never equalled by Hitler – by a union of ten nations, probably including some at present puppets of Russia – in a gigantic United States of Europe!” (The Plain Truth - August 1950)


1952 - “Russia may give East Germany back to the Germans and will be forced to relinquish her control over Hungary, Czechoslovakia and parts of Austria to complete the ten nation union.” (The Plain Truth - December 1956)

Talking about the Holy Roman Empire, Mr Armstrong said…

1955 - “In its final phase, to appear in our day, will merely be a restoration of that ancient Roman Empire – a United States of Europe which we are beginning to foster within the confines of the ancient Roman Empire! We are building the Frankenstein Monster that is destined to destroy us!” (The Plain Truth - June 1955)


1956 - “The way is being prepared for a colossal third force in world politics — a European Federation of Nations more powerful than either Russia or the United States! …We have shown years in advance what would happen to Russia’s ill-fated Empire in Eastern Europe” (The Plain Truth - December 1956)


1962 - “United within ancient boundaries of the Holy Roman Empire; united by the common spiritual bond of universal Catholicism; united in a burgeoning and booming industrial economy that dominates today’s world; united geographically in the most productive and industrial complex on earth — at least ten nations of modern europe will march onto the scene of world history as the greatest single human force ever seen by man!(The Plain Truth - March 1962)


1964 - “Germany — a UNITED GERMANY with her former territories restored — is ready to emerge as the strongest nation on earth at the head of a revitalized… Europe! This power colossus is then going to deal a death blow to the United States and Britain…(The Plain Truth - October 1964)


1968 - “The 17th chapter of Revelation plainly describes a spiritual-political union of TEN KINGS, ten military/political leaders, and a great spiritual leader. For decades, [we] have been proclaiming the eventual creation of some form of united Europe – showing the many difficulties to be resolved, the ancient nationalistic antagonisms, the memories of Germany’s neighbors of World War II, and the various religious barriers.

We have proclaimed repeatedly that the ultimate unifying force would be religious. We have shown how the prophecies of your Bible proclaim a great universal religious fervour will finally break down all remaining barriers to a full economic-political-military-religious union in Europe!” (The Plain Truth - August 1968)

March 2017

“On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Rome Treaties, EU leaders will hold a summit in the Italian capital on 25 March with the hope of creating a new positive vision for the Union, which is faced with multiple crises. But the day before, they will meet with Pope Francis in the Vatican.

Prime Minister of Malta Joseph Muscat mentioned on Monday (27 February) a possible meeting with the Pope, which in his words would ‘provide leadership that politicians miss’ in the context of the historic date of the Rome anniversary.

‘I do think he [Pope Francis] is the ultimate world leader that within the circumstances has the skills and the vision to say things that transcend the obvious and banalities we all say in politics,’ Muscat said.” (euractiv.com)


1985

Before World War II, a mutual accord had been made between Germany and Russia. History often repeats itself.(The Plain Truth - October 1985)

October 2017

“Frank-Walter Steinmeier has met with President Vladimir Putin during his first visit to Russia as Germany’s president. Having pointed out the historical ties between the two nations, Steinmeier said he considers improving relations with Moscow as his personal obligation to the European people.

Russia and Germany ‘are connected by over a thousand years of collective history,’ the German politician told journalists in Moscow after talks with the Russian president. Steinmeier pointed out that history could not be viewed in black-or-white categories, and that he sees it as ‘very important’ to establish dialogue with Moscow, in contrast to the cooling of relations over the past years. The German president said he would ‘personally contribute’ to such a process.” (rt.com)

1945 – The Nazis Will Return!

Mr Herbert Armstrong wrote about this situation over 70 years ago after attending the San Francisco conference at the end of World War II, which led to the founding of the United Nations:

1945 - “While attending the San Francisco Conference, I spoke on Wednesday night, May 9, at the auditorium in Native Sons’ Building, to an audience of listeners to The World Tomorrow. What I said that night might be of some interest, in the light of subsequent events. I still have my notes on file. Here is a brief summary:

‘We don’t understand German thoroughness. From the very start of World War II, they have considered the possibility of losing this second round, as they did the first – and they have carefully, methodically planned, in such eventuality, the third round – World War III! Hitler has lost. This round of war, in Europe, is over. And the Nazis have now gone underground. In France and Norway they learned how effectively an organized underground can hamper occupation and control of a country. Paris was liberated by the French underground – and allied armies. Now a Nazi underground is methodically planned. They plan to come back and to win on the third try.

‘The Bible foretells that third round – and it spells doom for us, as God’s punishment, because we, as a nation, have forsaken Him and His ways! The third round is termed, in prophecy, an invasion by “Babylon” – a resurrected Roman Empire – a European Union. I have been proclaiming that since 1927. For a while I thought Hitler might organize it – especially when he tied up with the Roman Mussolini. It wasn’t done in this second World War. It will be done and provoke the third!

‘This Nazi underground will introduce a new kind of internal warfare and sabotage, to divide and conquer! It will stir race hatred, class prejudice, strife among ourselves, religious bigotry while professing to champion religious tolerance especially toward the religion of the coming United States of Europe.” (The Autobiography - Chapter 49)

February 2018

The Nazis are back – and they have power!

“Whenever Merkel makes a statement in the Bundestag, the AfD will be the first party allowed to respond – a running order that is usually replicated in TV reports on parliamentary debates. On budget debates, the AfD will get to speak ahead of the government.

It has installed Peter Boehringer, an outspoken critic of eurozone rescues and the European Central Bank, as chair of the influential budget committee. Through Boehringer, the AfD will be able to appoint like-minded civil servants to vacant secretarial positions and slow down the parliamentary process…

‘The AfD tolerates Nazi slogans, gets caught up in internal fights and uses parliament as an agitprop stage,’ leftwing daily Taz commented in a recent op-ed. ‘But that doesn’t seem to affect their popularity. Apparently AfD voters want precisely that: a rightwing protest party’.” (theguardian.com)

“Germany Will Lead Europe AGAIN!”

7 February 2018 - “Martin Schulz has promised Germany will lead ‘fundamental EU change’ after forcing his way into Angela Merkel’s cabinet as part of the controversial coalition agreement. ‘With this coalition agreement, Germany will take an active and leading role in the European Union again.’

Senior conservative Volker Kauder said …he believes European citizens want the ‘reliability that they believe they can find in national states’, but admitted strengthening Europe remains an important policy. ‘A United States of Europe would transfer member states’ sovereignty to Brussels and there would not be a majority for that in many EU states’.” (express.co.uk)

Germany coalition deal: A marriage of convenience, not love

7 February 2018 - “As party leaders stumbled out of the last 24-hour non-stop marathon session, they looked relieved, rather than euphoric.

Angela Merkel's conservative bloc had finally agreed a coalition deal with the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) to form a government.

But this is a marriage of convenience. Not one of love. And certainly not of passion. It's the least bad option simply because neither side fancies the alternatives: a minority government is seen as unstable; and fresh elections would lead to months of uncertainty… So the resulting deal is a not a grand vision for a new Germany, but a list of pragmatic compromises that can benefit both sides…

A compromise between two parties from opposite sides of the political spectrum is very good at finding something for everyone. But the danger is that by trying to please everyone, you end up pleasing no one.(washingtonpost.com)

The Rise Of The European Military

8 February 1980 - “You may be sure the West European leaders are conferring hurriedly and secretly about how and how soon they may UNITE and provide a united EUROPEAN MILITARY FORCE so they can DEFEND THEMSELVES! And so they will no longer have to give in meekly to Russia! And who will they blame for their humiliation and their necessity now to have a united Europe, with a united government, a common currency, and a common military force as great or greater than either the USSR or the USA? They will blame the United States!

And when they are strong enough to assert themselves, Bible prophecy reveals a man will rise to take the helm in Europe and will first attack Britain for standing firm with the United States, and then they will return a lot of hydrogen bombs the US has stored now in Europe!

SO SAYS ALMIGHTY GOD IN HIS WORD! They can unite ONLY through the Vatican. It will be a CHURCH-STATE union. It won’t last long, but will create HAVOC unprecedented!(Pastor General’s Report – 8 February 1980)

Germany 2018 – “We Cannot Depend On Others!”

8 February 2018 - “With the US’s international role waning, Europe must define its own future, says a highly anticipated report. This assessment sets the agenda for leaders in the run-up to Germany’s pre-eminent conference on security. Titled ‘To the Brink — and Back?’ it forecasts a new era of uncertainty on the horizon.

‘In the last year, the world has gotten closer — much too closeto the brink of a significant conflict,’ wrote Munich Security Conference (MSC) Chairman Wolfgang Ischinger…

Ischinger pointed to ever-louder saber rattling between the US and North Korea, the growing rivalry between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and ongoing tensions between Russia and NATO in Europe.

The latest MSC report followed up on last year’s forecast that the United States under President Donald Trump could forfeit its established role as the guarantor of international security by acting unilaterally and furthering an American-centric vision at the cost of its traditional allies.

‘The world’s most powerful state has begun to sabotage the order it created,’ the report said, quoting John Ikenberry, a US foreign policy expert at Princeton University.

For Europeans, the US’s policy shift means doing more to provide for their own security, including rethinking defense spending, streamlining capabilities and defining a defense union.

The report quotes German Chancellor Angela Merkel as a reminder of Europe’s newfound predicament: ‘The times in which we could completely depend on others are, to a certain extent, over … We Europeans will have to take our fate into our own hands’.” (dw.com)

German Army To Set Up New NATO Headquarters

11 February 2018 -The Bundeswehr is expected to install a new NATO military headquarters in Germany. The move is part of the alliance’s strategic upgrade in the face of increased tensions with Russia. Germany is expected to set up a new NATO planning and control center, possibly near the former capital Bonn, as part of the alliance’s upgrade plans in Europe.

Unusually, it will not be integrated into the current NATO command structure.(dw.com)

Yet More Drama In The Coalition Crisis

12 February 2018 - “Social Democrat leader Martin Schulz on Friday abandoned his plan to become Germany’s next foreign minister as his party descended into open warfare and a coalition deal with Angela Merkel was thrown into doubt.

‘I hereby forgo joining the federal government,’ he said. ‘At the same time, I sincerely hope that this will end the personnel debates within the SPD.’

Merkel has also faced criticism over the deal, with members of her own party accusing her of giving away too many key ministries to the SPD.” (politico.eu)

Europe Moves To The Right!

Austria already has a coalition government which includes a right wing party. The AfD party in Germany will have real power in a German coalition government. Italy next?

Mussolini Name Lives On: When Giorgia Meloni was searching for a location to launch her campaign for Italy’s general election, she chose the city of Latina, founded by the fascist regime in 1932. The leader of the far-right Brothers of Italy was accompanied by one of her party’s candidates: Rachele Mussolini, granddaughter of the dictator Benito Mussolini.

Brothers of Italy is a crucial component of the centre-right coalition led by former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi…” (irishtimes.com)

What Happens Next?

The situation in Germany is confused. It has been over four months since they had a proper government. This, along with Brexit, has led to a more unstable Europe.

SPD members all have a vote, either to approve or throw out, the coalition agreement. If they agree to the coalition, Germany could well have a government in place by the end of March. If the motion is defeated, then Mrs Merkel has two choices: Form a minority government – or go for fresh elections.

What Mrs Merkel and the SPD want to avoid is fresh elections, as this would almost certainly result in yet more gains for the AfD party.

Weak Coalition Government?

“A compromise between two parties from opposite sides of the political spectrum is very good at finding something for everyone. But the danger is that by trying to please everyone, you end up pleasing no one.” (bbc.co.uk)


Historical Facts – Not Fiction!

East and West Germany were reunited in 1990.
The Eastern Bloc countries are now part of the EU.
Germany is now the leading nation in Europe.
EU Politicians have gone to the Vatican for help.
The Nazi AfG party is now in the German parliament.

Next - A Breakdown Of Civilization Coming?

As we watch the news, we can see that what Jesus Christ revealed to His Church is coming to pass. Germany has destabilised Europe by allowing over one million young Muslim men to migrate to Europe. Europe is in turmoil as a result.

Just 70 years after the end of World War ll, the Nazis are back, as the largest opposition party in the German Government.

The European leaders have gone to the Pope, seeking help and advice to save their faltering dream. The political chaos in Europe is crying out for strong leadership. Strong leaders are needed in time of extreme crisis.

In view of what many financial analysts are predicting for the near future, we would do well to review what Mr Armstrong wrote back in 1984:

1984 “…I can see now the event that is going to trigger the formation of reunification in Europe; the resurrection of the Medieval Holy Roman Empire that we’ve been looking forward to, that is prophesied to come.

…I believe that some event is going to happen suddenly just like out of a blue sky that is going to shock the whole world and is going to cause the nations of Europe to realize they must unite.

Well, now I think I can see what may be the very event that is going to trigger it and that is the economic situation in the world.

Now when the financial structure breaks down, all civilization is going to break down. I just wanted to say that much - maybe you can begin to see how serious this thing can become!” (Sermon - 7 July 1984)

Recipe For A Dictator

Blend a large amount of political confusion with a nice big juicy financial disaster. Add to this a fearful population, garnished with a few natural disasters. Then carefully add several terrorist attacks, or false flag attacks, and stir briskly – and don’t forget to add a black swan to spice things up… and you have created chaos, the perfect environment from which a dictator can arise.

Then supply a strong leader, backed and controlled by an apparently miracle working religious leader and they will both be accepted by the vast majority of the people…

They will give the people of Europe new hope…
AND DESTROY ALL WHO OPPOSE THEM!

“And he spake to them a parable; ‘Behold the fig tree, and all the trees; When they now shoot forth, ye see and know of your own selves that summer is now nigh at hand.

So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand’.(Luke 21:29-31)

Pastors Report - 9 Feb 2018
oneSmallStepTrumpSigning

To the Moon and Beyond?

On Monday, December 11 last year President Trump signed a White House space policy that directed the nation to: "not only plant our flag and leave our footprints -- [but to] establish a foundation for an eventual mission to Mars, and perhaps someday, to many worlds beyond". An exciting goal, certainly ... but what does God say?

Apollo 11:

I would imagine that most of us over the age of 55 can still vividly remember where we were on 20th July 1969 when those astounding words, "That's one small step for man — one giant leap for mankind" were broadcast by Neil Armstrong as he began his short walk further from home than any man had ever been before. I happened to be staying in Brighton at the time, having just completed my second year of Ambassador College and can well remember looking up at the moon each night during the entire Apollo program, in awe of the fact that there were actually men up there — 240,000 miles away — on another world.

The Big Picture:

But Neil Armstrong — important though his job was — was but one individual of a much larger team. That team itself was the result of a series of speeches given by President Kennedy, including one at Rice University on 12 Sept 1962 in which he said ....

... We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win .... But if I were to say, my fellow citizens, that we shall send to the moon, 240,000 miles away from the control station in Houston, a giant rocket more than 300 feet tall, the length of this football field, made of new metal alloys, some of which have not yet been invented, capable of standing heat and stresses several times more than have ever been experienced, fitted together with a precision better than the finest watch, carrying all the equipment needed for propulsion, guidance, control, communications, food and survival, on an untried mission, to an unknown celestial body, and then return it safely to earth, re-entering the atmosphere at speeds of over 25,000 miles per hour, causing heat about half that of the temperature of the sun ... and do all this, and do it right, and do it first before this decade is out — then we must be bold....

From that far-reaching vision came the organisation and precision engineering he talked about from across the USA. From it came the entire NASA moon programme with specialists from communications to medical fitness to navigation — all coordinated by the NASA Flight Directors, including Gene Kranz who orchestrated the landing itself and who later became world-famous during his role in rescuing the crew of the ill-fated Apollo 13 - a rescue which immortalised the phrase "Failure is not an option!"

Conflicting Ideas:

But what drove President Kennedy at the time was not just the fact that the moon was there to be 'conquered' and the country needed a project on which to focus, but that was the time of the Cold War — an inter-continental ballistic arms race raging full flow between the USA and USSR. The moon landing should therefore be seen as very much part of this race for supremacy between the only two super-powers at the time. The moon landing was to counter the fact that the Soviet Union were the first ones to put a satellite into orbit with Sputnik in 1957 and the first to put a man into space on 12 April 1961, when they launched Yuri Gagarin into orbit around the Earth on Vostok 1. Although it was just 3 weeks later, on 5 May 1961, that Alan Shepard became the first US astronaut in space, the flight did not complete a full orbit. The West had to wait almost a year before John Glenn became the first American to actually orbit the Earth, on 20 February 1962.

The entire thrust of the moon programme was therefore an effort to show that the Western capitalist system was superior to that of communism. It was neither science nor the pioneering spirit that guided the process. It was the competition of two divergent ways of life, pure and simple. To get one step ahead of the enemy as part of the Cold War.

Another Armstrong:

Yet while this was going on a far greater sequence of events was taking place; events that heralded a system — a Way of Life — infinitely superior to either capitalism or communism. Another Armstrong was commenting on what he was witnessing in this area of the space race. Three years before Neil Armstrong walked on the moon Mr Herbert Armstrong wrote the booklet Who Will Rule Space? In it he clearly identified the real military reason behind what he saw:...

... what should not be lost after all the publicity given to the moon and satellite probes (which are basically civilian-run) is the military role in Space. Although the U.S. budget for military Space projects has been running under $2 billion a year, compared with around $5 billion for civilian programs, the military has put over twice as many spacecraft into orbit. In fact, two of every three U.S. satellites are military in nature – chiefly “spy-in-the-sky’ satellites. These are sent up secretly and without publicity and send back detailed pictures of Russian and Red Chinese installations. (Who Will Rule Space?)

In identifying the real reason for the frantic activity and the huge expense involved, Mr Armstrong was also able to fulfil an even greater role; a role that was given to him specifically for that key point in history. For this was the time when "all things" were to be restored (Matthew 17:11), as there was to be another 'Elijah' (Malachi 4:5-6) and also that a specific key prophecy of Jesus Christ could then be fulfilled: "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." (Matthew 24:14)

The Bigger Picture:

Within this space race and all the military implications of what he saw taking place around him, Mr Armstrong was able to bring home to his audiences something even greater — the meaning of life itself and the purpose of mankind's existence within the cosmos! This fabulous good news was the very gospel of the kingdom destined to be preached in all the world as a witness. This transcendent purpose of life — not the mere human wrangling — is the real thrust behind his booklet Who Will Rule Space?....

.... Human beings were CREATED to rule the universe – God reveals that goal as our ultimate destiny – but we are NOT YET READY! Human nature drives us to attempt to achieve this goal without being qualified for it.

Man is striving vainly to change or protect the human body to withstand the environment of Space. God’s Plan involves changing men’s MINDS – qualifying them to rule – then creating for them SPIRIT BODIES thoroughly equipped for Earth or Space.

While it is in God’s intent and purpose to eventually put ALL under the feet of man, allowing him even to rule over other planets in the entirety of the UNIVERSE – God has decreed that it is not “yet” time for such all-encompassing powers to be given into the hands of man...

... Yes – it is the reborn SONS OF GOD, who are going to RULE the entirety of the universe under God, the great Ruler over all! We shall be no longer mortal, material – but born again – of GOD – spirit beings!

Don’t be caught up in the excitement of man’s feeble physical effort to “conquer” Space. Man’s effort is only another MILITARY and POLITICAL plan to extend his power – without right knowledge.

Learn God’s Truth. Begin to equip yourself God’s way – and you will be “MORE THAN CONQUERORS”! (Rom. 8:37.)

God wants YOU to rule Space! But we must first learn to rule our own human persons – according to the Maker’s Instruction Book! (Who Will Rule Space?)

Space Today:

President Trump's proclamation notwithstanding, the manned missions to the moon are presently very much on hold. The "one small step for man" became very nearly the only step there was, as just 12 men have ever walked on the lunar surface — all doing so between 1969 and 1972 — and no human has ventured further than 400 miles into space during the 45 years since. Today we have the "Curiosity Mars Rover" still roaming the Martian surface after landing there 6 years ago. And the "International Space Station" orbiting the earth every one and 1/2 hours with its crew of six. But where is the excitement? Where is the fervour? Where — as took place during 1969 — is the looking up at the night sky in wonder ... even if we happen to glimpse the space station overhead on occasion? We have become blasé. It is just so much "ho-hum ..... another probe, another satellite" and we all get on with our own little lives on our own little planet and close the shutters of our own little minds to the vastness of the universe in which we have been placed.

But as I have brought out above, what was really being contrasted during the space race was not just this planet Earth to the vastness of the cosmos, but the conflict of two different views within this world. So it is not merely the lack of excitement over space exploration that has died — it is the lack of excitement today in the values that once built the West to the point of space exploration. Those values did indeed give the USA greatness. And the ho-hum acceptance of multiculturalism of all kinds instead, is a large part of what is destroying that greatness today! Astoundingly, it is even the present acceptance of many of the very atheist socialist dogmas found in the old Soviet Union against which the push for the moon was designed! So who really won? The USA — or the USSR?

Truth Today:

And how similar it is to the current state of God's Church. When comparing our current situation with yesteryear it is all too easy to become fixated - and even depressed - regarding the lack of a big Work as in the past, and merely see the number of magazines and material being sent out as the major lack. But the real problem is our need to fully appreciate two radically different views of the world. Summed up as a Way of Give as opposed to the way of get, this is a Truth so precious, so profound and far reaching, that throughout the centuries men have died for it — and will do so again (Revelation 6:11). And a Truth so valued that it must be the driving force in our lives (Luke 14:26, Revelation 3:15,16). Where is such vision today? Where is the excitement? Where do we find the depth that can be seen within the quotes from Mr Armstrong's booklet? Has our appreciation of the true meaning of life become just another "Mars Rover" or space probe? Are our trials and daily struggles keeping our feet - and eyes - firmly stuck to the earth, so we miss the wonder of the galaxy - the place where our future lies, as so clearly brought out in the book of Hebrews?

  • For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.
  • But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man, that thou visitest him?
  • Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:
  • Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him. (Hebrews 2: 6-8)

What we must do is to look PAST Mr Armstrong to the True Source of what we had in the 1960s. Just as Neil Armstrong had hundreds of thousands of support personnel including the very President himself behind him — so too was the spiritual support given to Mr Herbert Armstrong if we just think about it:....

  • But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,
  • To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,
  • And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant (Hebrews 12:22-24)
The real Power:

For us today, unlike the moon landings, those spiritual support personnel are still very much in place and functioning just as they always have done.

  • Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. (Deuteronomy 31:6)
  • This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
  • Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. (Joshua 1:8,9)
  • And he [Elisha] answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them.
  • And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire [support personnel] round about Elisha.(2 Kings 1:16,17)
  • Are they [angelic beings] not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation? (Hebrews 1:14)
To Plant the Heavens:

God the Father remains on His throne, overseeing the entire universe, with Christ at His right hand. And the Truth is exactly as it always has been — absolutely nothing has changed. (Hebrews 13:8) We know that part of that Plan is that the USA and UK — as modern Israel — eventually will return to what really will make them truly great. Not capitalism as opposed to communism — but as the author and finisher of our Faith declared of His Spiritual Law, "this is your wisdom" (Deuteronomy 4:6) — dynamic Truth from the Maker's very instruction book that was sent with the product.

God's Plan for mankind - to the moon and far, far beyond - is part of the Truth we in God's Church already have! We have been given it restored and focused for us into a Way of Life that is radically different from absolutely anything to be found in this world. And we are expected to be using that spiritual Law right now, in training to teach it — as teachers of a Way of life that is utterly opposed to the present world's way. A Way, placed by God as words in our mouth, internalised, to be taught both now — and into eternity, and throughout the vastness of space.....

  • Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.
  • Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
  • For the moth shall eat them up like a garment, and the worm shall eat them like wool: but my righteousness shall be for ever, and my salvation from generation to generation.
  • And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:6-8,16)

.... Can you now begin to understand? God is offering YOU, not through the promises of science, not by travel in a Spaceship, not by military, political or man-made means, but by the very power of God, through being BORN of Him, as His OWN SON, RULERSHIP OVER SPACE! (Who Will Rule Space?)

Let's make THIS – our calling, our election ... yes, and our fantastic cosmic destiny – sure!
