lookToTheFuture

Look to the Future!

Forgetting the things that are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13-14)

Good News of WT:

Have you ever noticed how often Mr Armstrong in the World Tomorrow broadcast will contrast the news being read or transmitted today with the good news that there will be in the soon coming future? Focusing our attention on the World Tomorrow? Focusing our yearning forward? Here is one typical instance:

Well greetings friends. This is Herbert W Armstrong with the Good News of the World Tomorrow. Yes, it's a wonderful thing that news is going to be good, tomorrow. There's a reason why it isn't good today. And it isn't good, because we haven't made it good. It isn't good, because human beings don't know the way of peace. We are reaping exactly what we have been sowing.

Now "There is a way that seems right to a man, the ends thereof are the ways of death." (Proverbs 14:12 paraphrased) That's the way we have been living. We are living now in a world of chaos growing up in world revolution. You look out over this world and look at the suffering, the unhappiness, the heartache, the empty lives: there is a cause for it all. And we are not going to have a world of peace and a world of real happiness and abundant living and prosperity for all, until we come to find the way into those things. And we are going to be forced to learn that way ... ( WT - Christ's Mission and Message - Continued )

Using the News:

Notice how Mr Armstrong does not merely point out how different things are going to be in the future, but also stresses the overall change in direction needed to bring it about. It is very much cause and effect. The implementation of actions based on Godly thinking is what will produce the utopian age of the Millennium that we in God's Church long for – and during the Feast of Tabernacles specifically celebrate. The coming Millennium will become the utopia it is prophesied to be not by merely "tinkering" with the present world, but by a sustained programme that brings every single facet of the new age into harmony with "The Way" – the spiritual Law or Torah of God. The degree of change will then be something we can scarcely imagine.

  • Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:
  • Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
  • For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
  • For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:6-9)

As we watch the prophetic events of this dying world unfold before us, doing so should give us a heightened appreciation of this DEGREE of change required. But it shouldn't end there. We should also do what Mr Armstrong did continually – recognise some of the specifics as to WHY the world is in the chaos it is, and just WHAT it is that needs to change to put it right. The reason this understanding is particularly vital for us at this time, is that the purpose of us being called now – for the first resurrection – is so that we may have a part in implementing the only lasting solution. It is this teaching role that is our true destiny – and something we need to focus on in a much more profound way, and especially during the upcoming Feast of Tabernacles that pictures this Millennial age.

Our Ultimate Future:

There is a reason why God is continually pointing us forward – to a degree that indicates this entire physical experience will eventually be largely forgotten. This present physical, chemical existence appears almost a duplication of our previous experience within the womb of our physical mother – once the only reality that we had ever known, yet it's something now that rarely - if ever - crosses our mind. Whatever memories of that time that there might once have been, have today been totally superseded by the experiences following our birth. This also appears to be the case following our spiritual birth into real LIFE in the kingdom and family of God:

  • For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.
  • But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
  • And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. (Isaiah 65:17-19)

The apostle Paul, on being given a vision where he was transported to the third heaven, said that he experienced "things so astounding that they cannot be expressed in words" (II Corinthians 12:4 NLT). So the question is, how can our frail human minds look forward to an existence which is, quite literally, ineffable (definition: causing so much emotion, especially pleasure, that it cannot be described)? The clear answer has to be that it cannot – and God fully understands this. As He says in Psalm 103:

  • Like as a father pitieth his children, so the LORD pitieth them that fear him.
  • For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
  • As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
  • For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
  • But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children;
  • To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them. (Psalm 103:13-18)
A New World:

We serve a loving God who knows our frailty, our limitations, and therefore talks to us in language that we CAN understand. He eases us in gently, so to speak, looking forward first to our teaching positions within the soon coming Millennial rule and the Great White Throne judgement period thereafter. This is something we can get our heads around – including the vast difference between the Way of life that will then be in place compared to what we currently experience.

And what a world it will be! Although the 10 Commandments will certainly form the basis of the Way of life throughout this earth, there is more, much more, required to produce a utopia. After all, ancient Israel had the commandments, but didn't have the heart to keep them. Neither does the world today. It doesn't have "the love of God shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit". But the Millennial age to come will!

  • And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
  • And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit. (Joel 2:28-29)
  • For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
  • Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
  • A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
  • And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. (Ezekiel 36:24-27)
Astounding Results:

And the effects will be totally spectacular. Even the natural world – currently red in tooth and claw – will undergo a complete transformation:

  • The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
  • And the cow and the bear shall feed; their young ones shall lie down together: and the lion shall eat straw like the ox.
  • And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice’ den.
  • They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea. (Isaiah 11:6-9)

By choosing the wrong tree, Adam – and the age of man that formed from that choice – adopted what is actually an entirely alien approach to the Way God actually intends for mankind. Totally rejecting the righteous, godly mindset they instead chose Satan's self-centred way of doing things where competition, strife and self-seeking are the norm. Survival of the fittest – in both the human and the natural realms – therefore ruthlessly operated, trampling all beneath it. How different the New World will be once this sad, sad world has finally served its full purpose of providing adequate negative contrast in the process of aversion therapy for humanity.

And the result? An entire world then going in a totally different direction – nations, cities, sports, manufacturing, commerce, farming, business – and most of all families - all being conducted with love and concern rather than with selfishness and raw competition. But another benefit will also come to the fore as the entire earth is reformed. So great and so fundamental will be the change from Get to Give – and so pervasive throughout society – that the Millennium will have no alternative but to leave the past firmly behind – no longer tinkering at the edges, but the total RE-construction in all areas of civilisation. The overriding focus will therefore be forward to the ultimate solution of all that went before – to the awesome reality of the Great White Throne Judgement Period and the eternity thereafter.

  • For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.
  • For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope
  • that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God.
  • We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time.
  • Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.(Romans 8:19-23 NIV)
True Wealth:

At that time the land will be owned by the families – passed down from father to son without any of the crippling death duties of today's society (Numbers 33:54). There will be no interest on loans (Deuteronomy 23:19). The capital of a debt will be wiped out after seven years (Deuteronomy 15:1-2). Land mortgaged will return to the family, free of debt, every Jubilee (every 50 years – Leviticus 25:10)

In God’s Kingdom, these commands of His will be obeyed. They’ll become the standard for regulating commerce, business, finance, and the entire economic structure of the world.

And all will be on the giving basis. Christ said, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again” (Luke 6:38).

The giving standard will be followed in God’s rule on this earth – not the grasping, conniving, striving, deceitful, clandestine, furtive, scurrilous, devious, cheating and lying chicanery that is commonplace in today’s business world. (Tomorrow... What it Will be Like - Chapter 7)

The result? Outgoing happiness and joy! True wealth!

  • If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;
  • Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. (Leviticus 26:3-4)
  • Behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that the plowman shall overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed; and the mountains shall drop sweet wine, and all the hills shall melt. (Amos 9:13)
  • Instead of bronze I will bring you gold, and silver in place of iron. Instead of wood I will bring you bronze, and iron in place of stones. I will make peace your governor and well-being your ruler.
  • No longer will violence be heard in your land, nor ruin or destruction within your borders, but you will call your walls Salvation and your gates Praise. (Isaiah 60:17-18 NIV)
This Coming Feast:

And it is this glorious world that we will be gathering together to celebrate in just over two weeks time. The Feast of Tabernacles points us forward each year – as do all the autumn/fall festivals – focusing our minds on this TOTALLY different world. Just as the mind of the entire earth will be encouraged at that time to look to the glorious future – getting their minds away from the horrors of the past – so it must be today for us.

We too must strive to leave OUR world behind. Our home and family problems ... plumbing problems ... appliance problems ... car/automobile problems ... house ... work ... health ... this world's politics ... As much as these negatively impact on us, we need to realise just how temporary these worries are, as we are told by the apostle Paul:

  • For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
  • For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
  • While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.(II Corinthians 4:16-18)
Moving Forward:

Recently when travelling in Australia to visit family and church brethren, my wife and I were told about the Australian coat of arms, which has a very interesting history behind it. As you can see from this link, the shield is upheld by a kangaroo and an emu, animals that, though endemic within Australia and found only in that continent, have never actually been designated as official emblems of Australia. However, word has it that they were chosen to symbolise a nation that is moving forward, based on the fact that neither the emu nor the kangaroo can easily, if at all, walk backwards. To reinforce this origin, when first designed in the late 19th century the coat of arms also carried the motto Australia Advance, or Australia Forward ... something that really appealed to this young, growing and developing nation.

In a similar way we, as citizens of the new dynamic age to come, also need to keep on keeping on, advancing, focusing forward to that glorious age as we gather together for eight days of looking to the soon coming future – and seeing that future in our mind's eye – we certainly need to fulfil God's command to: "celebrate, delight, exult, glory, joy, revel, triumph" and indeed ... REJOICE! Because we know, that as Mr. Armstrong would continually encourage us, "this advance good news of tomorrow is as certain as the rising of tomorrow's sun".

  • ... and you shall rejoice before the LORD your God, you and your son and your daughter, your manservant and your maidservant, the Levite who is within your towns, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are among you, at the place which the LORD your God will choose, to make his name dwell there.
  • You shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt; and you shall be careful to observe these statutes.
  • "You shall keep the feast of booths seven days, when you make your ingathering from your threshing floor and your wine press;
  • you shall rejoice in your feast, you and your son and your daughter, your manservant and your maidservant, the Levite, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are within your towns.
  • For seven days you shall keep the feast to the LORD your God at the place which the LORD will choose; because the LORD your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you will be altogether joyful .(Deuteronomy 16:11-15 RSV)

dangersOfTheLastDays

Self love… love of money… scoffers… nothing sacred… unloving… unforgiving… no self control… cruel… full of hate… reckless and puffed up with pride…

The Dangers of the Last Days

We now live in a world that has lost its way, as Mr Armstrong explained that:

“… because the world has thrown away the BASIC TEXTBOOK of true education – the Holy Bible! The world has gotten all mixed up. … The Bible IS the FOUNDATION of ALL KNOWLEDGE – and the true approach to the acquisition of all discoverable knowledge. It is our Maker’s instruction book of needed knowledge acquirable from no other source.” (The Plain Truth – September 1981)

Here is a Bible description of today’s world:

“You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.(ll Timothy 3:1, New Living Translation)

The 1960’s – A Dramatic Drop In Standards

In a way the Beatles started this modern trend in a new Satan-influenced lifestyle of a degenerating culture and sense of social values. It picked up what had been started by Frank Sinatra, when teenage girls ran screaming half out of their minds for his autograph. It was revived and intensified by Elvis Presley.

Then the Beatles delivered Satan’s knockout blow to any public sense of social values in the world. This world is fast losing all sense – if it ever had any – of true social values. The lower the standard of social values, the more popular they become in a misguided and deceived humanity.(Pastor General’s Report – December 12, 1980)

Burning Man: Searching for Meaning and Purpose

“To say that Burning Man is ‘weird’ would not be doing it justice. In this very isolated corner of the Black Rock Desert, you will find nudists (lots of them), palm readers, neopagans, ‘ecosexuals’, witches, sorcerers, shamans, New Age gurus, ‘goddesses’, Satanists, ‘polyamorists’ and just about every type of fetishist that you can possibly imagine.

Ultimately, the truth is that you are not going to find meaning in life through sex, drugs, public nudity, weird art and loud techno music. You can try every pleasure under the sun, but it is still not going to fill that hole that you feel deep inside of you. In America today, there is a greater spiritual void than ever before. People are searching for meaning and purpose in all sorts of places and not finding it.” (endoftheamericandream.com)


Everyone’s hoping a little LSD can lead them to the next billion-dollar idea. The point is less to let off steam or lose your inhibitions than to improve your mind. It is all, another tech worker said, about the ‘intellectualizing of drug use as a stimulant for the brain.

Michael Pollan, whose recent book, ‘How to Change Your Mind,’ talks about the resurgence of psychedelic drugs, told me in an interview that the exploration of drugs by tech workers remains part of the industry’s ‘hacking ethos.’ In other words, to make more money. Pass the Ambien.(nytimes.com)

Education Goes Off Track

There was a time when education prepared people to be able to get a good job. Today, it’s all changed. More and more colleges and universities are offering “queer” courses – courses where students study a subject by studying from material prepared by “Queers”! Instead of getting an education, students minds are being perverted.

“This school year, colleges and universities across the country will be offering courses on ‘queering’ children, the Bible, and theology in general. Colleges are not only attempting to ‘queer’ childhood, they are teaching students to ‘queer’ Christianity and religion in general, as well. This fall, Eugene Lang College will offer a course titled ‘Queering and Decolonizing Theology,’ where students will explore topics such as ‘the sexual ethics and ritualization found in the S&M community,’ and ‘transgender Christ’s’.” (campusreform.org)

Students Taken Off-Track!

This is their real goal, to “destabilize long held assumptions about what the Bible — and religion — says about gender and sexuality." This is a classic example of end time bafflegab! The Bible is VERY clear on gender and sexuality. Read Romans 1:18–32!

Here is an example of the outline of a College course in English literature…

Reading Queerly in the High School Classroom:

Exploring a Gay and Lesbian Literature Course

The purpose of this dissertation is to explore how teaching an English literature curriculum centered on the stories, experiences, cultures, histories, and politics of LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex) people constitutes a meaningful site for teaching and learning in a high school classroom.

The project follows principles of critical qualitative research and employs an ethnographic case study approach with the purpose of transforming educational praxis. The study was conducted in an elective English literature class titled Gay and Lesbian Literature available to juniors and seniors at a public high school in Western New England.” (scholarworks.umass.edu)

They use language designed to sound “professional” - pure bafflegab!

Teach Students To "Read Queerly"

“Princeton University is offering a course next semester that aims to teach students to ‘read queerly’ by examining ‘the ways in which desire, gender, and sexuality are queerly told.’ The ‘Queer Literatures’ course will explore several texts, including a memoir whose author asserts that ‘Being mean to boys is fun and a second-wave feminist duty’.(campusreform.org)

Navigate Through The Pressures Of Social Media – Via The Occult

Tarot readings have long been met with superstition, often thought to involve mystical powers such as those possessed by Solitaire in Ian Fleming’s Live and Let Die. But now tarot readers have revealed that millennials are reaching for the cards more than ever before. Students and young professionals are turning to tarot in a bid to help them navigate through the pressures of social media and uncertainty over Brexit, according to industry experts.” (telegraph.co.uk)

Drag Queen Story Hour For Young Children

Their purpose is to get children to believe that their perverted ways are “normal and acceptable”.

“A group of local pastors in Mobile, Alabama, are speaking out against a public library for hosting a Drag Queen Story Hour, and are voicing their concerns with the city to stop the event. ‘This is far, far from the moral values and the morality of Mobile, Alabama,’ Pastor Fred Wolfe told WALA.” (breitbart.com)

Truth Is Fallen In The Street – Isaiah 59:14

“Harvard Law School Professor Emeritus Alan Dershowitz said Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former attorney, is ‘pleading guilty to a crime that doesn’t exist’ to further Democrats’ plans to impeach the president.(breitbart.com)

Told The Truth – Thrown Into Prison

“Molecular biologist Judy A Mikovits, PhD, reveals the disturbing true story of how she was thrown in prison for blowing the whistle on deadly viral contamination of human vaccines. In response to this discovery, she was fired from her job, indicted, prosecuted, jailed and ordered to retract her research and publicly claim she ‘made it all up.’

She refused to cover up the scientific evidence and was targeted and punished by the ‘vaccine deep state’ establishment. She was actually thrown in prison. ‘Just dragged out of my house in shackles… I refused to denounce the data… we have the data… they basically said tell everybody you made it all up and you can go home.

If you don’t, we’ll destroy you. And they did.’ This is what modern ‘science’ has come to!” (yourperceptionisnotreality.wordpress.com)

Modern Religion

Where is the leadership in Christianity today? The largest Christian group, the Roman Catholics, are full of corruption and perversion, as the following articles point out. No wonder people are looking elsewhere for help!

“The New York Catholic Conference spent more than $2.1 million on lobbying to protect predator priests and deny their victims justice.” (patheos.com)


“In the west of Ireland… a mass grave containing the remains of up to 800 babies and children at a former home for unmarried mothers in Tuam, Co Galway. As the Pope visits the shrine, crowds of protesters will tell him they want a forensic exhumation of the grisly cemetery nearby and the identification of the tiny remains. The Roman Catholic Church, they will tell its leader, must face the truth in full. The long-running scandal of the Church’s cruelty to more than 30,000 ‘fallen’ women has shaken the country.” (dailymail.co.uk)

“None calleth for justice… ” (Isaiah 59:4)

“Paul Manafort, Mr Trump’s campaign manager for six minutes during the summer of 2016, was found guilty of a host of crimes dating back more than a decade relating to his various business ventures, none of which has anything to do with President Trump.

What is interesting about the case against Mr Manafort is that prosecutors had declined to pursue some of the charges way back when. But that was BEFORE Mr Manafort betrayed the political establishment by working for Mr Trump’s presidential campaign. Once he committed that cardinal sin, all bets were off.

That is why so many people see this whole crusade as a dangerous and dishonest political prosecution.(breitbart.com)

The Great Gender Debate

We really do live in the age of chaos and confusion. God created male and female. Simple! Not so today.

“Following its successful integration in the US, US Facebook users can choose from one of 50 gender options.(telegraph.co.uk)

Parents Teach Their Children To Be Confused

“Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn? That’s a question their parents, Nate and Julia Sharpe, say only the twins [age 3] can decide. The Cambridge, Massachussetts, couple represent a small group of parents raising ‘theybies’ — children being brought up without gender designation from birth. A Facebook community for these parents currently claims about 220 members across the US.” (nbcnews.com)

And Now We Have - “Gender Pronoun” Badges

“Students are being encouraged to wear ‘gender pronoun’ badges to indicate whether they would like to be referred to as he, she or they. The badges will be handed out to freshers at Edinburgh University during welcome week next month to help transgender people.” (express.co.uk)

Free speech is dead!

“A medical doctor with 26 years of experience working at the National Health Service (NHS) has been deemed ‘unfit to work’ after insisting on identifying patients by their biological sex. Mackereth said. ‘I believe that gender is defined by biology and genetics and that as a Christian the Bible teaches us that God made humans male or female.’

‘Firstly, we are not allowed to say what we believe. Secondly, as my case shows, we are not allowed to think what we believe. Finally, we are not allowed to defend what we believe,’ he said.” (breitbart.com)

Some address the problem…

“Hungarian Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjen: ‘Sex is biologically determined, the concept of gender, as “social sex” is nonsense.’ Last week, Hungarian universities were given 24 hours to give their response to the plan of the Ministry of Human Capacities, according to which it will become impossible for new students to enrol in gender studies.” (newswars.com)

Abortion: One Man Speaks Out!

“Dr Ben Carson has a way of putting things in perspective that endears him to pro-life activists. The neurosurgeon and the author of six best-selling books makes another compelling point about the issue of abortion that is sure to have everyone who opposes abortion concurring. He pointed out how ancient civilizations have been criticized for the brutal practices of human sacrifice and child sacrifice — but he wonders if modern society isn’t ‘guilty of the same thing’ because we have legalized abortion.” (lifenews.com)

Big Brother Really IS Watching You!

“If you’ve ever suspected that Google is watching your every move even when you explicitly tell it not to, a new investigation has vindicated your suspicions by proving just that. An investigation carried out by the Associated Press has found that Google is in fact storing Android and iPhone users’ location data even when they have chosen privacy settings to prevent the company from doing so. The AP’s findings were confirmed by computer-science researchers at Princeton University.” (rt.com)

The “Normalization” Of Evil

“The Oxford Dictionaries defines ‘norm’ as something that is usual, typical, or standard. To ‘normalize’ some deviant thing or behavior, therefore, is to make that object or behavior a ‘norm’ — that is, making it acceptable by having the public perceive it as usual, typical, standard, and humdrum ordinary. America has already surrendered to sodomy and ‘transgenderism’ (a biological impossibility). What is underway now is the normalization of evil — of deviant predilection and behaviors like pedophilia, bestiality, cannibalism, and Satanism.(fellowshipoftheminds.com)

How low can they go? Very low!

“An Australian judge has incurred the wrath of child protection and gay rights advocates after stating that incest and pedophilia may no longer be considered taboo – just as gay relationships are now more accepted than they were in the 1950s and 60s.” (rt.com)

Social media and video games:

“Social media and video games are creating a generation of children with the mental and emotional immaturity of three-year-olds, one of Britain’s most eminent brain scientists has warned. She was concerned children were losing their ability to think for themselves, empathise and communicate with each other.” (telegraph.co.uk)

The Thin Veneer Of Civilization Disappearing

Society IS unravelling: A young boy will have no father for the rest of his life because a psycho started shooting at a Madden Tournament.

The thin veneer of civilization that we all depend upon on a daily basis is disappearing at a staggering pace. On Sunday, the young men that gathered to participate in the Madden Championship Series tournament in Jacksonville probably never imagined that they would be in any sort of danger, but then gunfire erupted around 1pm. Approximately 20 rounds were fired before the shooter killed himself, and it is being reported that 11 gamers were injured and 2 were killed.

Why would anyone ever want to kill somebody over a video game?

One of the victims that was killed was Taylor ‘SpotMePlzzz’ Robertson. He was a good man with a wife and a very small son, and now his son won’t have a father for the rest of his life.

Katz had traveled from Baltimore to Jacksonville to participate in the tournament, and he obviously planned this far ahead of time because he had his gun with him. And once he lost on Sunday, Katz apparently snapped and decided that it was time to start shooting.” (theeconomiccollapseblog.com)

Magazines we trust – lie!

“Last year, a pair of photographers from National Geographic captured disturbing video footage of an emaciated polar bear that they uploaded to the magazine’s website with the opening line: ‘This is what climate change looks like.’ There’s just one problem, though: the polar bear’s plight had absolutely nothing to do with climate change – a fact that National Geographic now reluctantly admits. As it turns out, the entire video and corresponding story was 100 percent fake news designed to push the climate change conspiracy theory – a fact that National Geographic now reluctantly admits.” (naturalnews.com)

“Stop The ‘Religious Indoctrination Of Children”

After all, according to the “experts”, “science is better than religion at explaining the natural world.”

“Dawkins wants to give youngsters a different perspective with a new book – Atheism for Children. The outspoken scientist, 77, hopes it will stop the ‘religious indoctrination of children’ by schools and family members. It aimed to show that science is better than religion at explaining the natural world.” (dailymail.co.uk)

The Final Corruption - Witchcraft

What is the fastest growing religion in the United States? If you said Christianity, you would be way off. In fact, the most recent numbers show that Christianity is in a serious state of decline in America. If you said Islam, you are much closer to a correct answer. Islam is the fastest growing major religion in the United States.

But there is a faith that is growing even faster than Islam. It is called Wicca, and it is currently growing at an astounding pace. Wicca emerged as a faith in the middle of the 20th century, but the origins of many Wiccan practices actually go back for thousands of years, and some researchers believe that certain aspects of Wicca can actually be traced all the way back to ancient Babylon. Wicca ‘is a modern pagan, witchcraft religion’. But more Americans than ever are embracing the darkness, and each year this comes to a fever pitch on Halloween night.” (thetruthwins.com)

We ARE Living In The LAST DAYS!

The “self” takes centre-stage. “Me, myself and I” are all important. Money is all important. Nothing is sacred any more, especially when it comes to morals. Our so called news is full of slander and lies. The main thrust today seems to be to get people to accept that sodomy, and transgenderism, pedophilia, bestiality, cannibalism, and Satanism are the new norm – all of which are condemned in the Bible!

We were warned of this end time attitude:

“They tell the prophets, ‘Don’t tell us what is right. Tell us nice things. Tell us lies. Forget all this gloom. Get off your narrow path.Stop telling us about your “Holy One of Israel”’.(Isaiah 30:10-11, New Living Translation)

People don’t want to know about God. As Mr Armstrong explained:

… the world has thrown away the BASIC TEXTBOOK of true education – the Holy Bible! The world has gotten all mixed up… The Bible IS the FOUNDATION of ALL KNOWLEDGE!(The Plain Truth – September 1981)

LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND!

As we look forward to keeping the Feast, we need to remember our calling, leave this dying world behind and focus on the future. Remember - we are the custodians of the Law of God – God’s way of life! (Isaiah 8:16)

We must not be a part of the problem, we are in training to be a part of the solution!

“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)
