Vaccination And The Bible

Vaccination and the Bible

Although scripture doesn't deal specifically with vaccination, biblical principles DO exist that we need to keep in mind as the world becomes more and more draconian in this area ...

Spirit of the Age:

If you put into the Google search box the phrase, "why I am anti-war" ... or anti-meat, anti-fashion or even anti-makeup, for example – results are returned much as you'd expect with a range of links evenly balanced for and against. But if you put into the box, "why I am anti-vaccination" that balance disappears – with only pro-vaccination links returned. This is new – reflecting a clear agenda during the last few months – and we find the same bias on many other platforms ... such as in social media and the mainstream media as well. In fact, when an epidemic of some kind occurs, it's the "anti-vaxxers" that are held to be the culprits, almost like the Jewish community being blamed for the spread of bubonic plague in the Middle Ages.

But not all share that outlook by any means - there are many in the world who are both surprised and alarmed to see this kind of draconian control rigidly enforcing its view to the extent that in some US states, children are being barred from attending school if not vaccinated. But God's people should be able to put what we are witnessing into its much bigger spiritual context. We find ourselves at the very cusp of the final resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire. And as brought out in the account in Daniel, this Roman-based political system is prophesied to be incredibly ruthless in imposing its will. Freedoms and civil liberties as we enjoy them now will be overridden. Dissent from the social norm will simply not be tolerated:

  • After this I saw in the night visions, and behold a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, and strong exceedingly; and it had great iron teeth: it devoured and brake in pieces, and stamped the residue with the feet of it: and it was diverse from all the beasts that were before it; and it had ten horns. (Daniel 7:7)

Such an oppressive system will not come out of a clear blue sky by any means. There has to be a degree of acceptance initially by the people controlled by it – then, like the frog in the boiling water, the temperature is raised ever so slowly until it is too late. And the true culprit is not some human being - Assyrian or otherwise - but the enemy, the slanderer, the dragon of old, who knows right now that he has but a short time left (Revelation 12:12):

  • For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness [or "wicked spirits"] in high places. (Ephesians 6:12)

Satan often appears as an angel of light, offering a seemingly helpful solution to a major problem, but we mustn't be hoodwinked, as his overriding aim is to destroy humanity, and he's content to use other human beings - with their search engines and social media platforms - to do so. And although there is nothing within scripture that deals specifically with vaccination, there are some clear principles that indicate God's Mind in this area - in both the physical and the spiritual realms. But the bottom line at this time is that to vaccinate or not, should remain a personal decision, and up to each individual to decide. Our bodies - and those of our children - do not belong to the state!

So what are the biblical principles that we should keep in mind when making that personal decision?

The Millennium:

In considering the subject of vaccinations, there is one thing that should always remain clear: there will not be the need of vaccination programmes during the Millennial rule of Jesus Christ on this earth! At that time the earth will be in balance under the rule of God — both physically and spiritually — and for that reason, the creation "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 11:9) It is therefore that "knowledge of the LORD" that we need to seek in God's Church today. In particular it is an understanding of The Way of God in the area of resistance to disease that is needed if we are to correctly reflect God's Mind on the subject of vaccination at this time.

The health and vitality experienced in the World Tomorrow is certainly not going to be brought to mankind by a series of injections, pills and potions primarily designed to expand the balance sheet of some large pharmaceutical company. It will come because of two things:

First, by right education. Cause people to know that God did not design the human physical body so that it must be getting sick all the time, catching continual diseases. Sickness and disease occur only when nature’s laws are broken. It is not natural to be diseased – it is unnatural. Educate people in the laws of good health. In proper diet. God designed certain foods for good health. Some things that grow are not designed for food. Some are poison. Educate people in sanitation, hygiene, required amounts of sleep, pure water, fresh air, sunshine, exercise.

And secondly, when people in spite of this education, do get sick or catch a disease, it can be healed – God’s way. Actually, Christ’s healing is forgiveness of sin. It works on a principle exactly opposite to the supposed cures of medical "science." (Tomorrow - What it will be Like)

Created Very Good:

Although we know that the very nature of animals will be changed at that time (Isaiah 11:6) and this change may even extend to changing the nature of certain parasites and disease organisms as well, such change will exist because the world is to return to its former state — the time before mankind chose Satan's way of selfishness and raw survival of the fittest. The Millennial age, with the Spirit that is poured out in that age, is described as "the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began." (Acts 3:21) It is our age. The time for which we are currently being trained — and it is for this reason that we must do what we can to bring both our lives and our ideas into line with that future thinking now - today - so we too will be ready to correctly rule when this earth is restored to the state in which it was originally.

That original state was described by the individual who created it — who became Jesus Christ — as "very good" (Genesis 1:31) This is the same individual who will be the King of kings and Lord of lords in the Millennium — ruling over all, using concepts and laws that will produce the Utopia that has been prophesied. It is also the same individual who created the immune system and every other system in our bodies (John 1:3; Ephesians 3:9). It is the Way of Life of God - the lifestyle of the Father and Christ - that will produce the abundant happiness and health at that time. And at the heart of that Way for mankind is repentance — turning to God's Way of doing things completely — and that includes questioning vaccines, and whether they can have any place whatever in the process of converting the world into a stunning paradise (Luke 23:43).

Vaccination Injury:

There is no doubt that vaccination can work. The eradication of smallpox proves that. And in Third World situations in particular – with inadequate nutrition, hygiene and virtually every other factor for good health – it may be the only viable human solution available during an epidemic. But is it "The Way" we are in training for, in our role of teaching God's principles of radiant health in the World Tomorrow? The answer has to be a resounding NO! In the future, society will be looking to God for its healing and not mankind's futile attempts to circumvent physical laws:

  • Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.
  • For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
  • Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.
  • For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit..
  • The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?
  • I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. (Jeremiah 17:5-10)

God's healing involves the recognition of broken laws — the forgiveness of sin — and repentance back to God's Way of physical and mental life that keeps us healthy. Conversely vaccination tries to sidestep the penalty without putting right the underlying cause of sickness. Though vaccination uses the immune system, vaccination as carried out by today's medical profession is not a natural process. It works by using substances that are potentially damaging to the body — to force the body to react to the potential harm by producing antibodies. In a percentage of cases children are actually damaged as a direct consequence of this action. Long-term side-effects are also still in question — particularly links between vaccination and the modern explosion of various degenerative diseases. And some scientific studies have found that, far from protecting the individual from future diseases, they actually do the reverse – doing damage to the immune system and so making the person even more susceptible to subsequent infection and neurological problems.

The fact vaccination causes truly devastating injury in a significant number of cases is openly and graphically admitted by the US Government by the existence of the the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. This programme is based on the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 and is funded by a $0.75 excise tax on every vaccinated disease-dose used, with the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella vaccine) taxed at $2.25. When we know this — and can read the heart-rending stories of those so damaged — can we casually accept such a process without thinking long and hard of how it could contravene the clear God-given directive we are given via the apostle Paul:

  • What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy [Spirit] which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
  • For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. (I Corinthians 6:19-20)
Radiant Health:

We are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14) with a truly profound responsibility before God to look after the body given to us. Doing this properly produces a two-fold advantage: not only will it help to keep us well during this physical life, but it will teach us the principles that keep us well also — so making us more equipped to teach them ourselves in the future. Such things are as Mr Armstrong describes them above: ... the laws of good health. In proper diet ...sanitation, hygiene, required amounts of sleep, pure water, fresh air, sunshine, exercise. And as brought out in Proverbs, our mental outlook also has a major impact on our general health, and it is well recognised today that our disease-fighting white cells (leukocytes) are produced in the marrow of our long bones, in particular:

  • A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones. (Proverbs 14:30)
  • A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones. (Proverbs 17:22)
  • In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
  • Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
  • It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. (Proverbs 3:6-8)

Within the above laws God did design an immune system - with antibodies as an important aspect of health. But the responsibility given to us by God, to have those antibodies in full-working condition, does not include vaccination as practised by the medical profession. Rather it is to ensure our environment and the bodies of both ourselves and our children are kept clean, (Deuteronomy 23:14) well-fed, and of equal importance, in a positive, tranquil and loving environment. (Luke 11:11, Ephesians 6:4) Doing this leads to natural immunity and health. (Proverbs 4:20-22).

As explained to our forefathers shortly after leaving Egypt, God's overall desire was for their good, and if they would be obedient, abundant physical blessings - including vibrant health - would follow:

  • Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:
  • And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee.
  • Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.
  • And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee... (Deuteronomy 7:12-15)

To deliberately inject, or introduce, potentially damaging substances into our bodies – including even such noxious things as mercury, formaldehyde, aluminium etc (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_vaccine_ingredients) – is clearly not part of "This Way" God originally designed mankind to walk. The Church therefore cannot, and will not, endorse immunisation as our letter on the subject clearly explains.

Spiritual Parallels:

We can also see the above principles mirrored in spiritual areas. After all, it is the same God who created both. For this physical existence we have been given is but a trial run for the real God-Life that The Eternal has designed for us for all eternity as His Spirit-born sons. Yes, aversion therapy is part of the system, but it should be the final line of spiritual defence, not the first. Strong spiritual immunity does not come by us deliberately exposing ourselves to sin! We are rather commanded to "flee fornication" (I Corinthians 6:18), and to "withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly" (II Thessalonians 3:6) — just as we are commanded to quarantine infectious individuals physically (Leviticus 13:46; Numbers 5:2) And to avoid and/or thoroughly wash when in contact with dysentery. (Leviticus 15:1-13).

It is also the mother's antibodies that protect the child physically — not a battery of noxious injections — both in the womb and afterwards when breast-feeding. In a similar way Mr Armstrong points out:

It is the duty of Christ’s TRUE ministers (and how scarce today) to PROTECT the begotten but yet unborn saints from false doctrines from false ministers.

The HUMAN mother carries her unborn baby in that part of her body where she can best PROTECT it from physical harm; and that protection is part of her function, as well as to nourish the unborn child! Even so, the CHURCH, through Christ’s ministers, instructs, teaches, counsels with, advises, and PROTECTS from spiritual harm the unborn members! What a WONDERFUL picture is human reproduction of spiritual SALVATION! (Mystery of the Ages - page 262)

Being an Overcomer:

So in both cases — both physically and spiritually — the key is being and keeping fit and well, fully healthy, before coming into contact with damaging disease or facing damaging trials. BOTH areas are prophesied to increase. BOTH solutions are the same — to increase overall health and strength God's Way. As Mr Armstrong points out in his article, How To Be An Overcomer - which shows how to develop strong spiritual immunity:

When temptation comes, we ARE TOO FAR FROM GOD – and we are then unable, SUDDENLY, on the spur of the moment, to get close enough to Him to get the help and the deliverance we need! It sometimes takes TIME to get CLOSE to God – into that intimate contact with Him so that we can draw on Him for the power we suddenly need! In other words, when temptation unexpectedly has come, we have found ourselves caught off guard – out of prayer – out of contact with God – OUT OF SPIRITUAL TRAINING!... (How To Be An Overcomer - GN Aug 1985)

The Source of Real Protection:
He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation. (Psalm 91)

6000 Years Of Human Government

Aggression… corruption… coups… global financial chaos:

We are very close to the end of…

6,000 years of Human Government

No matter where we look in today’s world, we see confrontation, arguments, lies and even open hatred and wars. Worldwide, governments are in crisis. There are many questions and few answers. They have no solutions for most of the problems they face.

Welcome to the end of this age!

For the last 6,000 years, God has allowed mankind to try every conceivable form of government, but none have brought the lasting peace and prosperity that man desires. And the reason is simple. Mankind has rejected the one way that would ensure a peaceful prosperous world. But not for much longer!

There is a feeling that war could break out in the Middle East at any time. The situation is tense. The situation is also serious in the Far East, with China showing off its newfound military power. Democracy appears to be dead in both the UK and the USA, while German politics are in chaos and Europe is in danger of disintegrating!

An Obituary To The Western World

During the course of my life I have watched the Western World abandon all of the values that made it successful. But objective truth is no longer acceptable in the Western Woke World, because it is contrary to the woke ideologies, such as there is no difference between men and women, that there are many genders and that men and women can be born into the wrong bodies, that hurt feelings are more important than empirical facts, that many subjects are not subject to examination or debate, because they offend emotive beliefs of feminists, people of color, Jews, the new transgendered species, and whoever else can make a claim of victimhood.

We now live in a world in which a self-declared ‘victim’ can block truth, because truth offends them.

Today the Western World is based not on TRUTH but on LIES. A world based on lies is a false world, and that is what the Western World is today.

It is a LIE.(paulcraigroberts.org)

The Plain Truth About Today’s World News!

“Many believe that the mass media just tell whole-cloth, outright lies all the time, but that’s not usually how it works. What they do is selectively omit inconvenient facts, disproportionately amplify convenient facts, and uncritically report on dubious government assertions. Basically they only tell the truth when it’s convenient for them, and when it’s inconvenient they are silent. Only telling the truth when it’s convenient for you is effectively the same as lying all the time, only you can get away with it a lot easier.” (medium.com)

UNITED KINGDOM

Democracy Is Dead In Britain

The British people voted to leave Europe in a referendum 3 years ago. The problem is that a majority in Parliament over-ruled that decision. Some say that this amounts to a coup! So now we have an election in a few weeks time… and then what?

The Dismal Choice At This Election Is Between Disaster And Catastrophe

“From a business perspective, the choice between Corbyn and Johnson is one of the most dismal of the post-war age. We deserve better. What a miserable choice awaits voters on December 12. On the one hand we have the unrealistic flag-waving optimism of Boris Johnson, determined to take us out of Europe on a wing and a prayer, and on the other the reckless socialism of Comrade Corbyn.” (telegraph.co.uk)

No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time …” (“Churchill by Himself” Page 574)

The Battle For The Soul Of Great Britain

“Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Conservative candidate Boris Johnson are in an epic battle for the soul of Britain. The UK general election is less than 5 weeks away. The winner will change the face of the UK for decades.” (zerohedge.com)

The Monarchy – Fit For Purpose?

Now, even the position of the monarchy is being questioned…

“Queen Elizabeth II sanctioned Prince Andrew’s retreat from royal duties on Wednesday after a ‘car crash’ BBC interview about his friendship with Jeffrey Epstein.

CNN correspondent Max Foster wrote on Twitter: ‘Prince Andrew didn’t just expose himself in his BBC interview. It also prompted the question of whether the monarchy is “fit for purpose,” which has become part of the British election debate. There is drift at Buckingham Palace, Philip retired, Charles away, the Queen will miss Lord Geidt, Sussexes unhappy, the interview – there are even rumours about a second one – was a disaster of Krakatoan proportions as for Andrew’s lifestyle.’

In a separate report, royal commentator Peter Hunt echoed such claims and told CNN: ‘The sacking of Prince Andrew, as it is, is unprecedented. We have to go back to the abdication of Prince Edward VIII in 1936 to see anything vaguely comparable,’ said Hunt.

‘The position of the monarch is now up for question in 2019 which it wouldn’t have been just a few weeks ago’.” (express.co.uk)

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

The Illusion Of Democracy

The notion that citizens of the United States don’t actually live in a democracy has been picking up steam for decades, with scars from economic, social and political decay inflicting themselves ever more deeply into our psyches as the years move on.

You would think that, with the rise of science and technology, we would have been able to build a far more prosperous nation.

Instead, we have seen a vast reduction in our standard of living, and are being forced to work longer and harder in increasingly menial and unfulfilling jobs across the board. We are ever more being subjected to the control-hungry vicissitudes of mega-corporations that are swallowing up American entrepreneurship and prosperous self-employment.” (collective-evolution.com)

A Blueprint To Overthrow Government From Within

America is being torn apart by a “blatant abuse of constitutional authority…”

“The House began public hearings this week, furthering the partisan move by the Democrats to impeach President Trump in a blatant abuse of constitutional authority… But this is even bigger than the president. This is an attempt to overthrow the federal government from the inside.” (zerohedge.com)

How America Ends

“Democracy depends on the consent of the losers. For most of the 20th century, parties and candidates in the United States have competed in elections with the understanding that electoral defeats are neither permanent nor intolerable. The losers could accept the result, adjust their ideas and coalitions, and move on to fight in the next election.

But not any more!

“Our radical Democrat opponents are driven by hatred, prejudice, and rage,” Trump told the crowd…Trump’s apocalyptic rhetoric matches the tenor of the times. The body politic is more fractious than at any time in recent memory.” (theatlantic.com)

EUROPE

Prepare For An EU Crisis

“Leading officials in Brussels are on edge after recent economic forecasts pointed to an imminent collapse of the EU economy. The official forecast predicted that the EU’s economy ‘looks to be heading towards a protracted period of more subdued growth and muted inflation’. Hordern explained: ‘The worst is still ahead for the EU’.” (express.co.uk)

Germany: Can The Centre Hold?

“The country’s traditional powerhouses on the centre-left and the centre-right face a moment of reckoning. Postwar German politics has a reputation for being moderate, consensual and a touch on the dull side. But… the agonies of Brexit and the rise of rightwing populism have claimed the political limelight around Europe. But those looking for clues to the continent’s future would do well to watch Germany closely over the coming weeks.(theguardian.com)

Far-right AfD Surges To Second Place In German State Election

“Anti-immigrant populists beat Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats (CDU) to second place in an election in the east German state of Thuringia yesterday, building spectacularly on their steady momentum since first entering the Bundestag two years ago. According to exit polls, the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) took nearly 24% of the vote, beating the centre-right CDU…” (theguardian.com)

Merkel’s CDU Call For AfD Coalition

As you read the following article, keep in mind that Hitler was elected by the people – legally! Are we seeing the formation of a new powerful right wing party in German politics? As was pointed out in a previous article… those looking for clues to the continent’s future would do well to watch Germany closely over the coming weeks.”

“Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union risks ‘tearing itself apart’ over her legacy in the wake of a string of poor election results, as some conservative politicians double down on her pro-immigration stance while others eye a pact with the nationalist far-right. The letter, which does not mention the AfD by name, demands a readiness for coalition talks with ‘all democratically elected parties’ – a breach of the CDU’s official party line.” (theguardian.com)

Deutsche Bank Death Watch

At its peak, Deutsche Bank shares reached 110 euros – today, they trade under the 7 euro mark.

“The biggest bank in Europe is in the process of imploding, and there are persistent rumors that the final collapse could happen sooner rather than later. Germany is the glue that is holding the EU together, and so if the bank that is right at the heart of Germany’s financial system collapses, the dominoes will likely start falling very rapidly… those that understand the times we are living in are watching Deutsche Bank very carefully, because if it implodes global financial chaos will certainly follow.” (theeconomiccollapseblog.com)

Macron: Claims NATO ‘Brain Death’

President Trump wants NATO countries to pay their full dues to NATO. However, some European leaders are using this pressure to call for an EU military force…

“Emmanuel Macron has said NATO is in the throes of ‘brain death’ and European countries can no longer rely on the US to defend its allies… NATO ‘only works if the guarantor of last resort functions as such. I’d argue that we should reassess the reality of what NATO is in the light of the commitment of the United States,’ he said.” (theguardian.com)

‘Europe Is Dying!’

In Poland, people want to return to “traditional Catholic values”!

“Tens of thousands of far-righters march in ‘independence’ parade calling for ‘Polish Intifada’. The march also drew anti-abortion and anti-LGBT activists, with some demonstrators chanting in support of the ‘regular family’… Poland is increasingly polarized since the nationalist Law and Justice (PiS) party took power four years ago promising a revival of patriotism and traditional Catholic values.” (rt.com)

CHINA

The Hong Kong protests

“Anti-government protests have rocked Hong Kong for months and the situation shows no sign of dying down. Hong Kong’s protests started in June against plans to allow extradition to mainland China.

Critics feared this could undermine judicial independence and endanger dissidents. Protests supporting the Hong Kong movement have spread across the globe, with rallies taking place in the UK, France, US, Canada and Australia.” (bbc.co.uk)

China’s response…

“Chinese Communist Party leader Xi Jinping called ‘the complete reunification of the motherland’ – by which he meant the annexation of Taiwan and solidification of control over Hong Kong and Macau – ‘inevitable’ and vowed to ‘unite all Chinese sons and daughters’ on Tuesday.” (breitbart.com)

INDIA/PAKISTAN

“Nuclear tensions are escalating between south Asia’s two superpowers — India and Pakistan — following the Indian defence minister’s announcement earlier this month that India may revoke its current commitment to only use nuclear weapons in retaliation for a nuclear attack, known as ‘no first use’. Some experts watching the situation have told Nature that the risk of a conflict between the two countries has never been greater since they both tested nuclear weapons in 1998.” (nature.com)

MIDDLE EAST

Political Chaos In Israel

At a time when Israel is under rocket attack from Gaza, and after two elections, Israel still hasn’t got a government, so a third election now looks imminent. Prime Minister Netanyahu is under attack, similar to President Trump, with what some claim to be false accusations…

“Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been indicted on charges of fraud, bribery and breach of trust, the Israeli Justice Ministry said Thursday. The prime minister, who is the country’s longest-serving leader, has strenuously denied any wrongdoing, calling allegations against him a politically motivated witch hunt.” (latimes.com)

Is A New Arab Spring Unfolding In The Middle East?

All around the Middle East, there are serious problems…

“As the last of the Middle Eastern summer fades away, is the region slipping into a new Arab spring? In Iraq, demonstrators are being shot dead in the streets. In Lebanon, protesters have paralysed the country and seem set to bring down the government of Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri. In recent weeks the Egyptian security forces crushed attempts to protest against the police state of President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi.” (bbc.co.uk)

Middle East Is More Combustible Than Ever

The war that now looms largest is a war nobody apparently wants. During his presidential campaign, Donald Trump railed against the United States’ entanglement in Middle Eastern wars, and since assuming office, he has not changed his tune. Iran has no interest in a wide-ranging conflict that it knows it could not win. Israel is satisfied with calibrated operations in Iraq, Lebanon, Syria, and Gaza but fears a larger confrontation that could expose it to thousands of rockets. Saudi Arabia is determined to push back against Iran, but without confronting it militarily. Yet the conditions for an all-out war in the Middle East are riper than at any time in recent memory.” (foreignaffairs.com)

WORLD FINANCE

Global Debt Is Up To $188,000,000,000,000

“This is officially the biggest debt bubble the world has ever seen. The world is now 188 trillion dollars in debt, and that number continues to grow rapidly each year. Our mountain of debt has become so colossal that the only way to keep the game going is to borrow even more money, but by borrowing more money we make our enslavement even worse. Meanwhile, those that are holding our debt just continue to live the high life as they laugh all the way to the bank.” (theeconomiccollapseblog.com)

Trouble Brewing On Horizon

“Why can’t 4 too big to fail banks worth $5.45 trillion pay back a $53 billion loan? there’s more here than meets the eye – trouble brewing on horizon! Banks can’t pay their debts – if that’s the case, and they have the government monopoly power to print and create money, how is the average man to pay his debts?” (touchstoneconnect.com)

IS WORLD GOVERNMENT THE ANSWER?

Pope Calls For A World Government

Pope Francis, like other popes before him, desires global government. This was made clear in his call for globalism on Thursday, during a speech before the members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences within the Apostolic Palace. Francis demanded that a new ‘supranational, legal constituted body’ enforce the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and their climate change policies. I am beginning to think that Pope Francis, who is also the ruling king of the Roman Vatican City state nation, is perhaps getting ready to make a real power move soon.” (12160.info)

Forty years ago, Mr Armstrong explained:

“World leaders today are virtually unanimous in concluding that man’s only hope of being saved alive for even another generation lies in establishing an all-powerful super world government. Yet all confess that nations are utterly unable to bring it about.(Tomorrow… What It Will Be Like - Chapter 5)

There Is Good News!

The Perfect Government IS Coming!

Sir Winston Churchill, before the United States Congress said:

There is a purpose being worked out here below.

(Tomorrow… What It Will Be Like - Chapter 4)

The Perfect Government

Yes, Jesus Christ very soon is going to return to this earth. He is coming in power and glory. He is coming to rule all nations! But He is not going to do this ruling, supervising, all alone, by Himself. He is coming to set up world government. It will be a highly organized government. There will be many positions of authority.

Right here, it is time we stop to explain the mechanics of this perfect form of government. First, it is the Government of God – not human government. Man won’t acknowledge it yet, but man has demonstrated by 6,000 years of inefficient, bungling, wasteful efforts of human government that mortal man is utterly incapable of rightly governing himself.

As for man being qualified to rule and administer government, God says of government officials today:

‘None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity… Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace.’

Then the people, under this human mis-government, say:

‘Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light [solution of civil, personal, national, and world problems], but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. We grope for the wall like the blind, and we grope as if we had no eyes: we stumble at noonday as in the night; we are in desolate places as dead men’ (Isaiah 59:4, 7-10).

Then, in this chapter foretelling our time, the final solution is given: ‘And the Redeemer shall come to Zion…’ (verse 20). And, continuing: ‘Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the [Eternal] is risen upon thee’ (Isaiah 60:1).

The only hope of justice – of peace – of truth – of right solutions to all this world’s problems, is the coming in power and glory of Christ to set up world government.

Right government.

The Government of God!

In this, and many other passages, God shows in His Word to mankind how utterly helpless man is to govern himself and his fellows. Now 6,000 years of human experience has brought mankind to the very brink of world suicide. The world’s leading scientists and statesmen say the only hope, now, is world government. I attended the San Francisco Conference in 1945, where world leaders attempted to form a world organization of nations. They called it ‘The United Nations.’ There I heard chiefs of state ring out the warning that this was the world’s last chance.

But it has failed.

The United Nations has no power over the nations. It has no power to settle disputes, stop wars, or prevent wars. The so-called United Nations are not united. This effort has degenerated into a sounding board for communist propaganda.

Man has failed his last chance!

Now God must step in – or we perish!(Tomorrow… What It Will Be Like - Chapter 4)

“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)
