Gods Sign Or Beasts Mark

God's Sign or Beast's Mark?

"And it [Unleavened Bread] shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD’S law may be in thy mouth (Exodus 13:9) ... And the counterfeit? ... "he [The Beast] causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads (Revelation 13:16)" ....


As we observe the Passover and keep the Days of Unleavened Bread again this year, something else is stirring on the world scene: greater and greater ecumenism — the merging of many disparate groups of traditional christians, almost always under the auspices of the Catholic Church. We saw this vividly illustrated this past week when Pope Francis kissed the feet of the Sudanese leaders who had been at war with each other for the past six years:

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, described the retreat as a "miracle", saying that "until within 24 hours of it beginning we didn't know it was going to happen. The atmosphere has been extraordinary and we just see the hand of God in it."

The retreat was proposed by Archbishop Justin and approved by Pope Francis. It would have been unthinkable even a few years ago. "We have a gathering at the invitation of the Pope, in the Vatican, with the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the former Moderator of the Presbyterian Church", Archbishop Justin said. "These are Churches that have been separated for half a millennium."

"We have the main political leaders from South Sudan, with the main spiritual leaders, gathering together. The political leaders have been at war for six years...

...I start with our Christian faith: that we believe in the God that raised Jesus Christ from the dead so all evil and darkness was finally overcome in the resurrection. And resurrection life overflows in ways we can't predict; so that there is always hope.

And what we have seen in this last 24 hours is not a promise of change; but it is a reasonable hope of change."

The Anglican primate of South Sudan, Archbishop Justin Bada Arama, used Twitter to thank people for their prayers. "We have concluded the healing retreat today at the Vatican", he said. "We were all commissioned by the Holy Father, the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Presbyterian Moderator of Scotland to go and be ambassadors of peace and reconciliation in South Sudan." (Pope Francis kissed the feet of the Sudanese leaders - - April 14 2019)

Catholic Authority:

If there is a single common factor shared by those wanting to get together, it is the Sunday communion — or Eucharist — justified by the claim that Sunday was the day of the week on which Christ was resurrected. And yet, by keeping Sunday in this way, the Protestants merely reinforce the Catholic claim to exercising supreme authority in such areas. Repeated Catholic statements illustrate this:

"From this same Catholic Church you have accepted your Sunday, and that Sunday, as the Lord's day, she has handed down as a tradition; and the entire Protestant world has accepted it as tradition, for you have not an iota of Scripture to establish it Therefore that which you have accepted as your rule of faith, inadequate as it of course is, as well as your Sunday, you have accepted on the authority of the Roman Catholic Church." (D. B. Ray, "The Papal Controversy," 1892, page 179)

"Is Saturday the seventh day according to the Bible and the Ten Commandments? I answer yes. Is Sunday the first day of the week and did the Church change the seventh day - Saturday - for Sunday, the first day? I answer yes. Did Christ change the day? I answer no!" (James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore (1877-1921), in a signed letter)

"The Bible everywhere enforces the sanctification of Saturday the seventh day of the week ... You Protestants have to admit the authority of the Roman Catholic Church that is branded on you when you observe Sunday because you have no other authority for Sunday but that of the Roman Catholic Church." (James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore (1877-1921))

"The Catholic Church for over one thousand years before the existence of a Protestant, by virtue of her divine mission, changed the day from Saturday to Sunday." (James Cardinal Gibbons,The Catholic Mirror, Sept. 23, 1893)

"We have made the change from the seventh day to the first day, from Saturday to Sunday, on the authority of the one holy Catholic Church." (Bishop Seymour, "Why We Keep Sunday.")

Apostolic Authority?

The papal pretension to exercise such authority is the claim to be a continuation of what Jesus Christ left in the True Church through the apostle Peter when He said specifically to him:

  • And I say also unto thee [singular], That thou [singular] art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.
  • And I will give unto thee [singular] the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou [singular] shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou [singular] shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matthew 16:18-19)

Although the apostle Peter was neither given the position of Pope - or Father - nor the position of vicar (or substitute) to Christ, he was indeed given the position of chief apostle under Christ to whom the other apostles were to look for strength against Satan (Luke 22:31-32). But Peter was never in Rome! The apostle to the Romans was Paul — not Peter — so all such claimed authority is bogus! As the apostle Paul points out:

  • But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;
  • (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)
  • And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we should go unto the heathen, and they unto the circumcision. (Galatians 2:7-9)
Mark of the Beast:

But changing the Sabbath to Sunday has a much more sinister dimension — for it is destined to lie at the very heart of the soon to be imposed Mark of the Beast. As Mr Armstrong explains:

"The Sabbath is God’s SIGN, standing, more than any commandment, for OBEDIENCE.It was symbolically in the HAND and in the FOREHEAD, just as the MARK of the BEAST – the pagan SUNDAY – was in the right HAND and in the FOREHEAD!

"SUNDAY observance – Christmas, New Year’s, Easter, etc. – this is the MARK of the BEAST!

"The church did cause all under the “Holy Roman Empire” to receive this mark, during the Middle Ages.Not only were active church members caused to observe Sunday instead of the SABBATH, but it became a universal custom so that all the Western world – regardless of religious connection or belief, accepted Sunday instead of SATURDAY as the weekly day of rest. It has become universal in the Western world except for Judaism, Islam, a few sects in Christianity, and the comparative few whom God has called out of this world and into His true Church.

"Has she stopped?

"Just at present she has not the POWER to enforce this mark on everyone. But there will be a United States of EUROPE – a union of ten nations. It will be a UNION OF CHURCH AND STATE – and the church once again will sit astride "The BEAST." (Who or what is the Prophetic Beast?)

Sunday and the Resurrection:

As mentioned above, the only attempted justification for Sunday observance — other than a spurious papal authority — is the false idea that Christ rose from the dead on a Sunday. This can be clearly seen in the following portions of a letter sent by Pope Benedict to Cardinal Arinze of Nigeria a few years ago:

The Second Vatican Council teaches that "the Church celebrates the Paschal Mystery every seventh day, which day is appropriately called the "Lord's Day' or "Sunday'" ( Sacrosanctum Concilium , n. 106).

Sunday remains the fertile foundation and at the same time the fundamental nucleus of the liturgical year which originated in Christ's Resurrection, thanks to which the features of eternity were impressed on time....

The cultural context in which we live, often marked by religious indifference and secularism that blot out the horizon of the transcendent, must not let us forget that the People of God, born from "Christ's Passover, Sunday", should return to it as to an inexhaustible source, in order to understand better and better the features of their own identity and the reasons for their existence.

The Second Vatican Council, after pointing out the origin of Sunday, continued: "On this day Christ's faithful are bound to come together into one place. They should listen to the Word of God and take part in the Eucharist, thus calling to mind the Passion, Resurrection and Glory of the Lord Jesus and giving thanks to God who "has begotten them again, through the Resurrection of Christ from the dead, unto a living hope'" ( Sacrosanctum Concilium, n. 106)....

... May the "Day of the Lord" that could well be called "the lord of days" regain all its importance and be perceived and lived to the full in the celebration of the Eucharist, from which the Christian community grows authentically and on which it depends. (From the Vatican, 27 November 2006)

Passover vs Eucharist:

I hope we can see from the above letter how this mark, this branding that will take place, is not just Sabbath to Sunday. It also involves the Eucharist. It is the acceptance of the sun-disk of bread on Sunday that they claim places their Christ IN that Sunday and simultaneously places them into the body of their universal, broader church. How interesting that it was the bread of Passover that was attacked so readily and so vehemently within the apostasy. It is undoubtedly why this issue seems destined to determine who will be counted as Christian in the future and who will be labelled as anathema from Christ.

Conversely, the True annual Passover is all about the forgiveness of sin — symbolised within both the bread and the wine. God insists on forgiveness of sin and reconciliation to Him before we can have Christ dwelling in us and all of the other aspects found in the Holy Days. But once our sins have been forgiven, then a new life can begin based on reconciliation with The Father — a life then subject to the Living Word and Law of God — obedient as Christ was when human — pictured by eating Unleavened Bread for seven days: "And it shall be for a sign unto you upon your hand, and for a memorial between your eyes, that the [ETERNAL'S] law may be in your mouth: for with a strong hand hath the [ETERNAL] brought you out of Egypt.(Exodus 13:9) Coming out of Egypt (or sin - Hebrews 11:25) is the focal point. And to do that requires the positive action of placing God's Law — the bread of Unleavened Bread — into our mouths, as a symbol of being obedient to our Father and to Jesus Christ, the true Christ. But there is absolutely no understanding of such crucial Truth at all within Easter or Sunday observance. Rather, it is but one more tool in making and keeping the world blind. (II Corinthians 4:4)

Not on a Sunday:

The Truth God has left us is very different. The fact that Jesus Christ was placed in His tomb at sunset on Wednesday and was resurrected at sunset on Saturday is clearly proved in the booklet: The Resurrection was not on Sunday. It is the only way the scriptures fit together so that Jesus Christ fulfils the ONLY sign He gave that He was the Messiah. For that sign was NOT the resurrection. It was the length of time He was to remain in His grave:

  • But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas:
  • For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. (Matthew 12:39-40)

Tying it to the Hebrew account of Jonah removes all doubt as to the time stated: three days ... AND ... three nights . Look it up in an Interlinear. There is absolutely no confusion. There were clearly TWO Sabbaths that week — the First Day of Unleavened Bread and the weekly Sabbath — something those who are careful to keep God's Holy Days have no problem understanding:

  • The Jews therefore, because it was the preparation, that the bodies should not remain upon the cross on the sabbath day, (for that sabbath day was an high day,) besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. (John 19:31 KJV)

So the day following the Wednesday sunset burial was a High Day (1st day of UB) — night 1 and day 1 — then ....

  • And the sabbath passing, Mary Magdalene and Mary the mother of James and Salome, bought spices, so that coming they might anoint Him. (Mark 16:1 LITV)
  • And that day was the preparation, and the sabbath drew on. And the women also, which came with him from Galilee, followed after, and beheld the sepulchre, and how his body was laid. And they returned, and prepared spices and ointments; and rested the sabbath day according to the commandment. (Luke 23:54-56 KJV)

The Sabbath passing was the First Day of Unleavened Bread that ended Thursday sunset. The preparation day that followed was preparing for the weekly Sabbath and was the day they not only bought spices, but prepared them into ointments. Making ointment would require boiling. That takes time. And remember, such preparation was in addition to the normal Sabbath preparation of food etc — night 2 and day 2 — ending Friday sunset.

  • [After] the Sabbaths [plural], at the dawning into the first of [from] the Sabbaths [plural], Mary the Magdalene and the other Mary came to gaze upon the grave. And, behold! A great earthquake occurred! (Matthew 28:1-2 LITV)
  • But on the first of [from] the Sabbaths [plural], Mary Magdalene came early to the tomb ... (John 20:1 LITV)

Then came the second Sabbath itself — the weekly Sabbath — clearly seen by correctly translating the word Sabbaths as plural within the Literal Translation above — night 3 and day 3 — ending Saturday sunset when Jesus Christ was resurrected — after precisely 3 days and 3 nights in the tomb. Then, when they came to the tomb early Sunday morning, He was gone. Already risen at sunset the night before. Exactly as He said:

  • He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. (Matthew 28:6)
  • And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you. (Matthew 28:7)
  • And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. (Mark 16:6)
  • He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, (Luke 24:6)
Hold That Fast:

The above is clear. It is as we were taught from scripture originally. It all fits together beautifully — though remains hidden from the wise and prudent and revealed unto babes (Matthew 11:25) whose aim is simply to believe and keep what God commands. As Mr Armstrong said in his sermon on Mark Of The Beast - 11 Dec 1982:

... this whole system of Gentile governments began with Nebuchadnezzar; and now we find the LAST RESURRECTION OF IT IS COMING UP. AND IT MEANS SOMETHING TO YOU AND ME. AND THE MARK OF THE BEAST IS SOMETHING THAT IS GOING TO BE ENFORCED, AND YOU ARE GOING TO RISK YOUR LIFE ON IT in the very near future. It is speaking of these very same things. Jesus said, He that hath an ear, let him hear. And I say to you, if you have ears to hear, you BETTER hear; and you had BETTER UNDERSTAND. And don't take this lightly, because your life is going to be at stake.

Fortunately, God has left us with probably the greatest human example of holding fast in the face of insurmountable odds to be found in scripture. Just as did Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, so must we be able to say that we are not going to bow down to this image of the Beast. We're not going to serve this satanic system! And we're not going to be branded with this day nor its Eucharist that they have fraudulently foisted on the world, because, quite frankly, they don't have the authority to change anything — certainly not the Sabbath, Passover and Unleavened Bread! They don't have the authority of the Apostle Peter. They don't even understand Apostleship. Peter wasn't even in Rome.

In addition to that, as far as the resurrection is concerned, the only sign Christ gave was that He'd be three days and three nights in the heart of the Earth. That was the only sign of His Messiahship. He therefore died on a Wednesday evening, and was resurrected on a Saturday evening. By the time Sunday came along, He'd already been resurrected several hours before. So the very foundation on which they base the entire Sunday argument is false and flawed.

But we are in good company. As we follow in the steps of those who went before us within scripture — boldly holding firm the Living Word that God has left us — we align ourselves with them, and once again stand up to the Beast and the entire Babylonian chaos it stands for:

  • Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.
  • If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.
  • But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. (Daniel 3:16-18)

Jeremiah 11:11

Our Western World is brim full of chaos and confusion - in Europe, in Britain, and in the USA. Now, a horror movie with the ominous warning – right out of the Bible. The headline asks:

“Jeremiah 11:11 - A Cryptic Message About America’s Future?”

“As soon as Jordan Peele’s smash hit ‘Us’ was released in theaters, hundreds of thousands of people started searching Google for Jeremiah 11:11. We are never told what it actually says, but it appears repeatedly throughout the film. …There is a lot of speculation that it was inserted for more than just entertainment value. Many have noted that the entire movie appears to be some sort of a metaphor for America as a whole, and even the title ‘Us’ could also be be interpreted as ‘U.S.’ if you just use a little imagination.

“Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.” (Jeremiah 11:11)

In the end, perhaps we are making too much of a silly horror film.

But there are two things that we should all be able to agree upon. Hundreds of thousands of Americans are suddenly reading the ominous warning in Jeremiah 11:11, and a ‘day of reckoning’ is definitely coming for America.” (

A Spiritual Problem

As in this horror film, many today are quoting scripture… but without understanding. Some realize that a “day of reckoning” is definitely coming for America and Britain. But what people today do not understand is that there is a reason for all this chaos, as Mr Armstrong explained:

“…we are now near the END of the 6,000 years during which God sentenced the world to be cut off from Him – to go its own way, form its own governments, its own religions, its own ways of life. Adam, the first man, rejected God and God’s government over him and his descendants – this whole world.” (The Plain Truth – October/November 1978)

“By eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, Adam chose the way of self-acquired knowledge.

It was Satan who influenced Adam, through Eve, to make the wrong decision.

Satan now influenced everything Adam did.

It was Satan who influenced Cain to kill Abel.

It is Satan, ‘the god of this world’ (II Corinthians 4:4), who has been influencing the descendants of Adam and Eve ever since!” (Correspondence Course - Lesson 19)

If we look at the proceeding verse in Jeremiah 11, we see the real problem:

“They are turned back to the iniquities [lawlessness] of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them: the house of Israel and the house of Judah have broken my covenant which I made with their fathers. Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon them, which they shall not be able to escape; and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them.” (Jeremiah 11:10-11)

In the very near future, both Britain and the USA will be destroyed by a resurgent European power as God’s punishment, because they have forsaken Him and His ways! We are surrounded by signs of the end of this age… here is a situation overview…

America’s Anxieties Are About To Go Biblical

“The sore beset people of this land may be good and [thoroughly] sick of politics, RussiaGate, and Trump-inspired social strife, but they may soon have something more down-to-earth to worry about: Biblical floods and plagues. Media hysteria around the Mueller Report has nearly eclipsed news of historic flooding in the midwest that has already caused $3 billion in damage to farms, homes, livestock, and infrastructure. With spring rainfall already at 200 percent of normal levels, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) issued a statement in late March saying, ‘This is shaping up to be a potentially unprecedented flood season, with more than 200 million people at risk for flooding in their communities.’

More to the point, two major western dams show disturbing signs of potential failure that may bring on unprecedented disasters. The Oroville Dam on the Feather River north of Sacramento — the highest earthen dam in the US — nearly blew out in February 2017 when record rains damaged the main spillway, threatening to send a 30-foot wall of water downstream towards California’s capital and towns along the way.

Now, two years later, new cracks have appeared in the repaired Oroville Dam main spillway. The Sierra Nevada snowpack stands at 153 percent above average, and the National Weather Service predicts that weak El Nino conditions with above-average Pacific Ocean temperatures are likely to produce above-average rainfall this spring along with the snowpack melt.

The Fort Peck Dam on the upper Missouri River in Montana is likewise troubling experts watching a record snowpack in the Rocky Mountains. It too is an earthen dam — the world’s largest by volume — filled with hydraulic slurry. Because it is located on the flat high plains, the dam is extremely long, running 21,000 feet — about four miles — from end to end. Behind it is a reservoir that is the fifth-largest man-made lake in the nation.

The slurry construction of the dam inclines it to liquification when the ground shakes. Failure of the Fort Peck dam would send the equivalent of a whole year’s flow of the Missouri River downstream in one release that could potentially wash away the other five downstream dams in the Missouri River Mainstem Reservoir System, along with every bridge from Montana to St Louis, an unimaginable amount of farm and town infrastructure, and several nuclear power installations. It would be the greatest national disaster in US history.(

Horrifying Medieval Diseases Are Making A Comeback

“Infectious diseases — some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages — are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard.

Los Angeles recently experienced an outbreak of Typhus…

People in Washington state have been infected with Shigella bacteria…

Hepatitis A, also spread primarily through faeces, infected more than 1,000 people in Southern California in the past two years.

Infectious diseases — some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages — are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard.

‘It really is unconscionable,’ said Bobby Watts, CEO of the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, a policy and advocacy organization. ‘These are all preventable diseases’.” (

US recession: “We're At 15 Minutes To Midnight”

“Citigroup has issued an explicit recession warning for the United States, advising clients to wind down exposure to risky assets and prepare to ride out the storm. ‘We advise investors to prepare for recession,’ it said.” (

Immigrants Send Record $148 Billion Home, Latin America, China Tops The List

Back in the book of Hosea, we are told that… “Strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not” - talking about Ephraim – but Manasseh has the same problem. A huge sum of money, $148 billion, taken out of the US economy to support people in other nations.

“Legal and illegal immigrants in the United States send a record $148 billion home in 2017, with Latin America and China topping the list, according to new World Bank data. Mexico received the most, at $30 billion, followed by China at $16 billion and India at $11 billion. Globally, immigrants sent $625 billion home in 2017, a 7% one-year jump.” (

US Moral Collapse

“America has been given very clear choices between good and evil, life and death, blessings and curses over and over again, and we have consistently made the wrong choices. If we stay on this road, there is only one result that will be possible. The following facts prove that America’s moral collapse is spinning wildly out of control…

  • America has killed more than 60 million children since Roe vs Wade was decided in 1973.
  • According to the CDC, approximately 110 million Americans have a sexually-transmitted disease right now.
  • According to the United Nations Population Fund, 40 percent of all births in the US now happen outside of marriage. But if you go back to 1970, that figure was sitting at just 10 percent.
  • At this point, approximately one out of every three children in the United States lives in a home without a father.
  • Approximately one-fourth of the entire global prison population is in the United States.
  • By the time an American child reaches the age of 18, that child will have seen approximately 40,000 murders on television.
  • Over half a million people are homeless in the United States right now, but more cities than ever are passing laws making it illegal to feed them.
  • 37 million credit card accounts in the US are “seriously delinquent” at this moment.
  • According to the Pentagon, 71 percent of our young adults are ineligible to serve in the US military because they are either too dumb, too fat or have a criminal background.
  • During one seven day stretch last summer, a total of 16,000 official complaints were submitted to the city of San Francisco about piles of human feces littering the streets.
  • When you include unfunded liabilities, the true size of our national debt is 222 trillion dollars. What we are doing to future generations of Americans is beyond criminal.
  • Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for Americans from age 15 to age 24.
  • The number of American babies killed by abortion each year is roughly equal to the number of US military deaths that have occurred in all of the wars that the United States has ever been involved in combined.
  • One very shocking study found that 86 percent of all abortions are done for the sake of convenience.

…if we continue running toward evil, it is only a matter of time before exceedingly painful consequences overtake us.(

Washington Loses Its Global Leadership

“Washington’s not only losing its economic & military power but also its soft power that rested in the propaganda. What comes next? Since 2016 the United States has been in the Russiagate box, a hoax created by the US military/security complex to prevent President Trump from normalizing relations with Russia. Normalized relations would devalue THE RUSSIAN THREAT, an orchestration that protects the $1,000 billion annual budget of the military/security complex.

The Democratic Party, which most certainly is not democratic, supported the hoax hoping to do Trump in for their own reasons and pulled the presstitute media into the conspiracy against Trump. The succession of these stupidities is destroying America’s reputation.

Meanwhile, other countries moved on. The Russians, for example, discovered that Washington’s sanctions had a silver lining. Russia became more self-sufficient economically and moved out of the box of being an exporter of raw materials to the West, a box into which the Americans and the American-brainwashed Russian economics profession had put the Russian government.

The fulminations and threats from Washington against Russia brought forth new Russian weapon systems for which the US has no match or defense, weapons that demote the US to a second-rate military power.

On an adjusted basis, China now has the world’s largest economy and increasingly ignores Washington’s blustering. As does Iran. Even Venezuela stands up to Washington. The world is concluding that Washington is not the power it thinks it is.

President Franklin D Roosevelt was happy to see World War II because he understood that it would leave Britain bankrupt and without an empire. Roosevelt understood that the gain would be America’s, because the US would take over the reserve currency role. The reason this is important is that the reserve currency country can pay its bills by printing money. Thus, the government has no budget constraints.

For a country as indebted as America, to lose this role would be a crushing blow. It is this blow that Washington faces as a result of its idiotic policy of sanctions and disrespect of international law.

And there is another blow. Just as the Roman Empire fell to invaders who crossed the frontiers of the empire, so is Washington’s empire falling.

Europe, the crown jewel of the empire, is now overrun with millions of unassimilable peoples to the extent that Europe is no longer European.

The President of the US has so far been powerless to defend the borders of the United States. Indeed, the Democratic Party and the presstitute media are totally opposed to any defense of American borders.

Why does a government unwilling to defend its borders, spend $1,000 billion annually on defense?

As for moral authority, after Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yeman, Ukraine, Honduras, and now Venezuela, all moral authority has vacated the West. The consequence of disunity perhaps precludes any leadership. But the collapse of the West into diversity and multiculturalism definitely means that Western leadership has been lost to the weakness of disunity. Is it chaos that awaits?(

What Has Happened To The America We Grew Up In?

“Earlier today, my attention was directed to a thread on an Internet discussion forum that lamented how much America had changed over the years. Today, we seemingly have so much going for us, and yet people are lonelier, more disconnected and more depressed than ever before. The suicide rate in the United States is up 34 percent since the year 2000, approximately 40 million American adults have an anxiety disorder, and overdosing on drugs is now the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 50. Clearly our society is not heading in the right direction.” (

Is The Demise Of The Euro Inevitable?

When we look at Europe, we also see chaos and confusion.

“As the eurozone economy slows down and the European Central Bank (ECB) runs out of ways to fuel the market, market strategist Russell Napier has said the Euro may be in trouble. Speaking to FT, the analyst firmly stated that the global monetary system is beginning to show serious vulnerabilities, noting that the demise of the euro may trigger the collapse of the existing financial system.” (

We Were Warned!

Nearly 35 years ago, God’s endtime Apostle had this to say:

“…I can see now the event that is going to trigger the formation of reunification in Europe… 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)


Meanwhile, in Britain, the Brexit crisis goes ON and on and on and on… Seemingly endless!

“Mrs May presents the demands for a new vote and a rejection of her deal as leading to economic chaos and collapse. She may yet win support as Angela Merkel and other EU leaders have said there can be no renegotiation. This is the only deal on offer.

Companies like Airbus and Siemens are stockpiling millions of spare parts. Even if the deal is agreed, the EU and the UK have to negotiate a completely new arrangement covering everything from trade in goods and services, aviation, to data protection, police cooperation, and human rights.

This will take years during which time the UK will de facto stay part of the EU even if formal political membership ends [in] March.

Switzerland rejected the EU and even the European Economic Area, to which Norway belongs, in 1992. Ever since Berne and Brussels have been quarrelling. Is that the future for Britain? A Brexeternity of endless negotiations with Brussels? The Brexit saga for the United Kingdom is only just beginning.” (

Defeat And National Captivity Come Next!

As Britain and America descend into chaos, God’s correction is not far off! The attitude of many today is revealed in the book of Isaiah: “…cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us”… and the result? “…therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking cometh suddenly at an instant.” (Isaiah 30:11,13)

“When they shall go, I will spread my net upon them; I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation hath heard.” (Hosea 7:12)

But the story does not end there…

As God’s endtime Apostle pointed out, the solution to all of mankind’s problems is at hand!

“The prophecies do not stop with revealing the unprecedented multiplied intensity of punishment already beginning to descend upon America and Britain. The prophecies record also the RESULT of that intensified punishment. The result will be a corrected people. The result will be an eye-opening realization of what we have done to ourselves. The supreme punishment will teach us, at last, our lesson! The punishment will break our spirit of REBELLION! It will lift us up from the cesspool of rottenness and evil into which we have sunk. It will teach us the way to glorious peace, prosperity, happiness, abundant well-being!” (The Plain Truth – June/July 1979)

How will this dramatic change be achieved?

In the beginning, Adam rejected the tree of life, representing the Holy Spirit. When Christ returns, He has promised to … “pour out My Spirit on all flesh” (Joel 2:28)!

The big lesson that mankind has to learn is that they cannot rule themselves. All forms of human government end in disaster. 6000 years of human history backs that statement up!

After the return of Jesus Christ – to take over the rulership of the earth - then will be: The New Covenant

“Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:

Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the LORD:

But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” (Jeremiah 31:31-34)

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!

Listen to Me, You who know righteousness, You people in whose heart is My Law: …I have put My words in your mouth, I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, That I may plant the heavens, Lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, “you are My people” (Isaiah 51:7,16)
