God's Law on Tower-blocks:

"... and my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation and in sure dwellings and in quiet resting places." (Isaiah 32:18)

Grenfell Tower:

Around 1 o'clock in the morning of Wednesday 14th June – just last week – a fire began in a 24 story high-rise tower block in North Kensington, West London. By the end of the day 79 people had lost their lives in a towering inferno that burned out of control for 24 hours – the deadliest fire in Great Britain since those caused by the Blitz, the air raids of World War II, and a tragedy that hit the news all around the world.

Almost immediately – even before survivors and relatives had time to comprehend their loss – the recriminations began. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, criticised the safety guidelines and in particular, those telling residents to stay in their flats until rescued by fire services. This advice assumed that the fire services would be able to contain a fire within the interior, which was impossible in this case as the fire was spreading rapidly via the building's recently installed exterior cladding. Since 2013, the residents' organisation, Grenfell Action Group, had repeatedly expressed concern about fire safety, and had warned the block's management in November 2016 that only a catastrophic fire would finally force them to treat fire precautions and maintenance of fire-related systems properly.

So residents blamed the tenant management organisation (TMO) and the contractors they employed, who during recent refurbishment fitted cheaper, flammable exterior cladding, banned by several architectural firms, reputedly to save a meagre £6250 in the £8.7 million project. The TMO in turn blamed the penny-pinching attitude of the council. And the council blamed the UK central government – for attempting to rein in profligate local spending by reducing the grant given to local councils. Put simply, the entire problem of what went wrong is a Gordian knot of a mess – that has unfortunately had truly devastating, agonising and lasting consequences for so many London families.

God on High:

In Isaiah we are given a glimpse of how God looks at mankind and our feeble efforts at civilization:

  • Look, the nations are like a drop in a bucket, and valued as dust on a scale. Look, God weighs the islands like fine dust.
  • Lebanon doesn't have enough fuel; its animals aren't enough for an entirely burned offering.
  • All the nations are like nothing before God. They are viewed as less than nothing and emptiness (Isaiah 40:15-17 CEB)

And in our daily prayers, we are told by Christ to address God as: "Our Father – who is in heaven". In so saying, we remember and acknowledge His elevated perspective – high above our own current mundane grasp of the events around us. In effect we are saying the reverse of the position taken by our first parents – who, as Mr Armstrong points out below, wanted God to keep His nose out of their business:

And so it is. Adam had made his choice. In other words, Adam said to God in effect … And let me just paraphrase it in my own words. In effect, he said: “God, I want you to keep your nose out of my affairs. I will not accept you as my ruler. I reject you as my king, as my ruler. I reject you as my God for salvation. I reject you as a source of knowledge to tell me what is good and what is evil, and I will decide it myself.” (Transcript - Sermon (1978-05-13) - Creation And The Gospel)

So for the past 6000 years God has indeed kept His nose out of our business – allowing man to make his own decisions in all areas of life. Not only moral codes, but also day-to-day judgements – for example, regarding the dwellings he builds, and the kind of cities he lives in, the fire codes he decides upon, and imposing whatever legal structures he chooses to implement. This is very much not God's world, and trying to change anything within it independently – for example, modifying a tower block into a more 'righteous' structure by attempting to give its inhabitants more safety, privacy, space, beauty – is nothing more than an exercise in futility when – according to God's clear principles regarding such things – the entire edifice should never have been built in the first place!

Only Tinkering:

And yet there is still this assertion within traditional Christian thinking, that by continually tinkering at the edges of the plethora of problems in this god-forsaken world, some form of pseudo-kingdom of God will miraculously appear – brought about within the hearts and by the actions of men. As Mr Armstrong puts it:

Haven’t you heard men speak of the kingdom of God something like this: “By Christians everywhere working together to bring about world peace, tolerance and brotherly love, the kingdom of God may at last be established in the hearts of men.”

Because they rejected Christ’s gospel 1,900 years ago, the world had to supplant something else in its place.They had to invent a counterfeit!So we have heard the kingdom of God spoken of as merely a pretty platitude – a nice sentiment in human hearts – reducing it to an ethereal, unreal NOTHING!Others have misrepresented that the “CHURCH” is the kingdom.Others confuse it with the millennium.Still others have, earlier in our century, claimed the British Empire is the kingdom of God. But no one makes that claim any longer.How DECEIVED CAN THIS WORLD GET?

The prophet Daniel, who lived 600 years before Christ, knew that the kingdom of God was a real kingdom – a government ruling over literal PEOPLE on the earth.

Jesus Christ brought additional knowledge about it that the prophet Daniel might not have known.Still, Daniel knew there was going to be a real, literal kingdom of God on the earth. (Mystery of the Ages – chapter 7 – page 296)

And it is that kingdom – the literal Kingdom of God – that is the ONLY real solution to the tower block problems found within our cities. A LITERAL, Spirit Born, divine ruling government that is prophesied to spread through all this earth following Christ's return – FORCING mankind to live a certain way – God's way – not only in the dwellings we build, but in every facet of existence – a TOTALLY new and different civilisation, literally from the ground up.

Individual Laws:

But is there not a need for individual laws- "building regulations" – covering such things as, say, fire codes? Indeed there is! And the principles can be clearly seen within the health and safety concepts found within certain old Testament building-code commands given to ancient Israel:

  • When you build a new house, make a parapet around your roof, so that you may not bring the guilt of bloodshed on your house if someone falls from the roof. (Deuteronomy 22:8 NIV)
  • And if a man shall open a pit, or if a man shall dig a pit, and not cover it, and an ox or an ass fall therein;
  • The owner of the pit shall make it good, and give money unto the owner of them; and the dead beast shall be his. (Exodus 21:33-34)

But there is a fundamental difference between the law of God and the laws of man. Even the above judgements fit and amplify further God's overall command to love our neighbour as ourself. The "Golden Rule" that is virtually extinct in our society today! And we are always to administer such laws according to the spirit and intent – not merely by the individual letter – as Mr Armstrong explains in the Good News article on Divorce and Remarriage:

THERE IS ONE great difference between the law of God and the laws made by human government. God has given us His law in form of general principles to be applied in various cases, whereas in national laws, state laws and city ordinances, MAN tries to make multiple thousands of laws, “spelling out” every little detail in a separate law.

It is made clear for us in the third chapter of II Corinthians. ”[God] also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit” (verse 6).

God’s law is given in one single word – LOVE. God is love, His law is love – that word sums up God’s CHARACTER. The law then is amplified into the two Great Laws, love toward God, and love toward neighbor. God amplifies it a little further in the Ten Commandments – the first four giving the broad principles of how to love God and the last six how to love neighbor. But God intended us to understand the PRINCIPLE involved and apply it honestly.

Now it comes to my attention that many are finding gray areas in the D & R law. I will try to spell out a little further in a general way, and those who seek the WAY OF GOD instead of their own way will have, I hope, no difficulty in applying God’s law properly according to its intended spirit. Otherwise, those who try to reason around God’s law to have their own way will stand condemned in the sight of God.

GOD DOES NOT COMPROMISE WITH, OR WATER DOWN HIS LAW. Rather than that He GAVE His only begotten Son Jesus to pay the penalty of repented sin in our stead. ( Spelling Out The Official Doctrine On D&R - GN Oct/Nov 1979)

God's View:

So taking the overall command to love our neighbour as ourself – along with a multitude of individual judgements found within Scripture – what IS God's view of tower blocks? And what is therefore prophesied when this entire earth will indeed be ruled by the Spirit Born Family of the Kingdom of God – correctly administering the laws of God?

According to the following passage in the book of Isaiah, even the concept of the semi-detached house goes against the thinking and aim of God – let alone piling dozens of dwellings on top of each other, making people live like a bunch of battery hens, in order to maximise profit from each square metre of city land – as we find in the modern tower block. Perhaps some form of high-rise structures will be permitted in the future – but from this passage and others it is very clear indeed that they will not be dwellings of any kind:

  • For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.
  • Woe unto them that join house to house, that lay field to field, till there be no place, that they may be placed alone in the midst of the earth!
  • In mine ears said the LORD of hosts, Of a truth many houses shall be desolate, even great and fair, without inhabitant. ( Isaiah 5:7-9)
Peace and Quiet:

When God first created mankind, He created them male and female – the beginning of the first traditional family unit – and placed them in a garden ... essentially setting them in magnificent parkland. The restoration of this parkland environment Jesus Christ certainly alluded to when He assured the thief on the cross that he will eventually be with Him in "Paradise" – a Persian word for a grand enclosure or preserve, hunting ground, park, shady and well watered, in which wild animals, were kept for the hunt; it was enclosed by walls and furnished with towers for the hunters (Luke 23:43). Such a setting would indeed give mankind the kind of environment in which to think deeply about the important spiritual things of life, and is far, far removed from what we find today in the noise, dirt, crowds and hustle and bustle of our modern cities. But it appears to be what is clearly indicated within the following passage from Isaiah:

  • Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and princes shall rule in judgment...
  • ... the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.
  • Then judgment shall dwell in the wilderness, and righteousness remain in the fruitful field.
  • And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever.
  • And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places; (Isaiah 32:1,15-18)

The clear contrast between "Paradise" and "tower block" could not be more stark! In Grenfell Tower there were 127 dwellings, each piled one on top of another and side-by-side. Can anyone say such a configuration can ever give "quietness and assurance ... a peaceable habitation ... and in quiet resting places" for those who are forced to exist in them? And can anyone honestly say they are truly loving their neighbours as themselves when they design, build, and rent-out such structures?

God's Glorious Future:

At the time of "the restitution of all things" (Acts 3:21) the entire idea of having to dwell cheek-by-jowl in a tower block will very much be something of the distant past. As a model nation to which the entire world will look, the land of Israel at that time will be regarded as "the land of unwalled villages" (Ezekiel 38:11) Certainly, in the context in which this phrase is found it indicates a people who are regarded as unprotected – but the phrase also has more to tell us: A village that was unwalled in ancient Israel was treated differently to properties in a walled town at the time of the Jubilee. Properties in the unwalled village would return to the family as their inheritance every 50 years. Such properties were not able to be sold permanently – unlike a townhouse. Such a phrase gives even more weight the idea of a paradise parkland environment in the future – as far away from inner city tenement buildings, urban sprawl and massive apartment blocks and as it is possible to be!

  • And if a man sell a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; within a full year may he redeem it.
  • And if it be not redeemed within the space of a full year, then the house that is in the walled city shall be established for ever to him that bought it throughout his generations: it shall not go out in the jubile.
  • But the houses of the villages which have no wall round about them shall be counted as the fields of the country: they may be redeemed, and they shall go out in the jubile. (Leviticus 25:29-31)

A similar conclusion is reached when we consider the case of the Sabbatical year as it will be implemented in the future. God gave the command to our forefathers in ancient Israel that debts were to be cancelled (Deuteronomy 15:1-2) and at the same time the land was to be rested (Leviticus 25:4). There is no record that this commandment was kept – to their own detriment! But on examination, keeping a Sabbath for the land would have had another quite profound effect on the make up of society in general. Greengrocers – today's supermarkets – would have been out of business for a full year or more – effectively removing them as a business and once again forcing the general population into a more agrarian environment if they wanted the volunteer salads and vegetables as a continuous part of their diet:

  • "Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: 'When you come into the land which I give you, then the land shall keep a sabbath to the Lord.
  • Six years you shall sow your field, and six years you shall prune your vineyard, and gather its fruit;
  • but in the seventh year there shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a sabbath to the Lord. You shall neither sow your field nor prune your vineyard.
  • What grows of its own accord of your harvest you shall not reap, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine, for it is a year of rest for the land.
  • And the sabbath produce of the land shall be food for you: for you, your male and female servants, your hired man, and the stranger who dwells with you
  • for your livestock and the beasts that are in your land--all its produce shall be for food.(Leviticus 25:2-7 NKJV)
The Real Answer:

So the arguments continue as to who is to blame for the tragic fire that occurred just over a week ago – when the real answer, the real culprits, were our first parents who wanted the right to decide for themselves. And they did ... they rejected the tree of life and told God to keep His nose out of their business – thereby choosing for themselves the determination of what is right and wrong, rather than humbly submitting to God's much wiser direction. As God inspired Jeremiah to note: " For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water." (Jeremiah 2:13)

But we can take heart.....things are about to change – with an entirely new civilisation based on an entirely new way of thinking and the legal framework that flows from it.... just waiting in the wings.

  • 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.
  • And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
  • I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.
  • And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.
  • Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.
  • Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.
  • Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.
  • And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that passed by.
  • And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
  • Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it. (Ezekiel 36:26-36)

The restitution of all things is about to happen – with each family in peace and safety, under their own vine and fig tree – within a parkland paradise – and without a tower block in sight!

When we comprehend the amazing future prophesied, and compare the paradise that is soon to come with what we witness on our TV screens re. the misery of those affected by such tragedies as the Grenfell fire, we get a fuller understanding of the need for the earth to be full of the knowledge, the WAY of God, as the waters cover the sea. And it puts a whole new complexion, and a different emphasis on our heartfelt request...."YOUR Kingdom come, YOUR will be done on earth, as it is in heaven."

  • But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the LORD shall be established in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
  • And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
  • And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.
  • But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the LORD of hosts hath spoken it. (Micah 4:1-4)

Nazi roots of the European Union… chaos in Europe… Nazi doctrine still in place today… the EU is really a dictatorship…

World War 2 Never Really Ended!

The fighting may have ended, but the war continues by other means. The rules have changed, but the goal remains the same – the resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire!

This is an intelligence briefing. Here I present the bare bones of what has been happening before our eyes…
if we would see it.

Once upon a time, there was an industrial combine in Nazi Germany called IG Farben. It was the largest chemical/pharmaceutical octopus in the world. It owned companies, and it had favorable business agreements with companies from England to Central America to Japan.

The author of ‘The Devil’s Chemists’, Josiah DuBois, traveled to Guatemala, on a fact-finding mission, in the early days of World War 2, and returned with the comment that, as far as he could tell, Guatemala was ‘a wholly owned subsidiary of Farben.’

The pharmaceutical empire was and is one of the major forces behind the European Union (EU). It is no accident that these drug corporations wield such power. They aren’t only involved in controlling the medical cartel; they are political planners…

This is a political goal. It facilitates control.

IG Farben’s main component companies, at the outbreak of World War 2, were Bayer, BASF, and Hoechst. They were chemical and drug companies. Farben put Hitler over the top in Germany as head of State, and the war was designed to lead to a united Europe that would be dominated by the Farben nexus.

The loss of the war didn’t derail that plan. It was shifted into an economic blueprint, which became, eventually, the European Union.

The European Commission’s first president was Walter Hallstein, the Nazi lawyer who, during the war, had been in charge of post-war legal planning for the new Europe.

As the Rath Foundation reports: In 1939, on the brink of the war, Hallstein had stated, ‘The creation of the New Law [of the Nazis] is ONLY the task of the law-makers!’

In 1957, with his reputation sanitized, Hallstein spoke the words in this manner: ‘The [unelected] European Commission has full and unlimited power for all decisions related to the architecture of this European community.’

Post-war, IG Farben was broken up into separate companies, but those companies (Bayer, Hoechst, and BASF) came roaring back, attaining new profit highs.

I refer you to the explosive book, ‘The Nazi Roots of the Brussels EU’ by Paul Anthony Taylor, Aleksandra Niedzwiecki, Dr Matthias Rath, and August Kowalczyk…

The Rockefeller-Standard Oil-Farben connection was a primary piece of the puzzle. It was, of course, Rockefeller (and Carnegie) power that had forced the birth of pharmaceutical medicine in America, with the publication of the 1910 Flexner Report. The Report was used to excoriate and marginalize Chiropractic, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, and other forms of traditional natural practice, in favor of what would become the modern juggernaut of drug-based treatment…

To understand the dimensions and history of the ongoing chemical warfare against the population, in the form of medical drugs (and of course pesticides), one must factor in the original octopus, IG Farben.

World War 2 never ended. It simply shifted its strategies.

In any fascist system, the bulk of the people working inside the system, including scientists, refuse to believe the evidence of what is happening before their own eyes. They insist they are doing good. They believe they are on the right side. They see greater top-down control as necessary and correct. They adduce ‘reasonable’ explanations for inflicted harm and death.

World War 2 is still underway. The battleground has been changed, and the means are far cleverer.

Sun Tzu wrote: ‘Hence to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting… The best victory is when the opponent surrenders of its own accord before there are any actual hostilities…It is best to win without fighting.’

This is what has been happening: invisible warfare.” (jonrappoport.wordpress.com)

True Democracy

Here is a quote from the book, ‘The Nazi Roots of the Brussels EU’. It explains that the EU Parliament has no control over the army of unelected bureaucrats who run the EU!

In a true Democracy all the power resides with the people. In contrast, the Brussels EU lacks this fundamental principle of separation of powers. Moreover, the people of Europe have neither control over the Executive level nor over the Legislative process. Worse, the parliament they elect has no means of effectively controlling these branches either.

To hide this impotence, Article 225 – the so-called fig leaf Article was inserted into the Lisbon Treaty. This clause offers a possibility for the EU Parliament to ‘request the Commission to submit a proposal’ for legislation. The Commission, of course, can simply refuse to do so.

Operating outside the basic principles of democracy, the Brussels EU – by definition – is a dictatorship. The power of the people to determine their government has been transferred to corporate interests. If the ultimate power no longer resides with the people, democracy becomes a dictatorship.

The Brussels EU portrays itself to the world as a parliamentary democracy with the EU Parliament playing the decisive role. However, the executive decisions and the drafting of all legislation is carried out by the EU Commission and its staff of over 54,000 people.

From their offices in the Commission headquarters – the Berlaymont building – and other locations, this paid army of career bureaucrats craft the laws of Europe on behalf of corporate interests.

In contrast, the 754-member EU Parliament is composed of politicians from 27 nations who have no controlling power over this army of bureaucrats. The EU Parliament functions as little more than window-dressing for the purpose of portraying the Brussels EU as a ‘parliamentary democracy’ to the people of Europe.

For the disbelieving reader, it may be helpful at this point to summarize the selection process of the first President and Foreign Minister of the Brussels EU:

  1. The people of Europe were excluded from the decision-making.
  2. The new ‘royals’ of Europe were selected by an elite circle of corporate interests.
  3. The selection ceremony took place in a lavish aristocratic setting at the Palace of the Valley of the Duchesse, on the outskirts of Brussels.
  4. French President Sarkozy (Nicolas Paul Stéphane Sarközy de Nagy-Bocsa), the offspring of a petit-aristocrat, was the ‘master of ceremonies’.
  5. The ‘queen’s’ crown was bestowed upon Baroness Catherine Ashton.
  6. The ‘king’s crown’ went to another person whose name reflects aristocratic descent, Herman van Rompuy.

In fact, the EU system of governance reverses all democratic achievements of European civilization over the past thousand years and throws the entire continent back to Medieval times [Holy Roman Empire times], when autocratic monarchs ruled Europe outside of any democratic control.” (reject-the-eu.co.uk)

The EU – Not A Trade Issue

This was the great deception foisted off on the British people. The group of bureaucrats behind the EU have the right to override all elected Parliaments. The EU is a well disguised dictatorship!

‘It’s worth knowing something here that the public needs to understand … the European Union is not about the trade issue,’ Mr Duncan Smith told BBC One’s Andrew Marr Show.

‘The EU was set up by the founding fathers, an important man called [Altiero] Spinelli, an Italian, who was an ex-communist; he designed the Maastricht Treaty and the Single European Act, why?

He said because this is a political project, bringing the nations of Europe closer and closer together to create a place called Europe and the design of this was such that politicians who come and go could not actually override this decision of the bureaucracy because otherwise we would never get there’.(independent.co.uk)

This Is “Not So New” News

Mr Herbert Armstrong wrote about this situation nearly 70 years ago after attending the San Francisco conference at the end of World War 2, which led to the founding of the United Nations:

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

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

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

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

A New Kind Of Internal Warfare - To “Divide And Conquer”!

The huge influx of predominately Muslim “migrants” into Europe, by German invitation, has caused several nations to close their borders. Was this situation also designed to create a crisis? Is this also part of the deception? Keep in mind that in Europe deception is the order of the day. This act by Germany has created chaos in Europe. It is very hard not to conclude that this was a deliberate act to foster the principle of “divide and conquer”!

“Europe could see €28 billion wiped off the value of its economies as it faces the imminent collapse of the Schengen system of open borders, according to a leading investment bank.

Unlike the process of negotiating an EU exit for Britain, Morgan Stanley said a chaotic dismantling of the 30-year old passport-free zone would plunge the EU into political turmoil. ‘This uncertainty would likely lead to a material decline in investment spending, especially if the suspension of Schengen coincided with an exit of the UK’.(telegraph.co.uk)

The “Religious” Element

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

We have proclaimed repeatedly that the ultimate unifying force would be religious. We have shown how the prophecies of your Bible proclaim a great universal religious fervour will finally break down all remaining barriers to a full economic-political-military-religious union in Europe!” (The Plain Truth - August 1968, page 42)

That Was From 1968 - Now Suddenly It’s News!

March 2017: EU heads of state and government are planning to meet with Pope Francis in Rome on 24 March, ahead of a summit expected to provide a vision for the future of the EU after Brexit, diplomats told EURACTIV.com.

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

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

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


“We have proclaimed repeatedly that the ultimate unifying force would be religious.”
(The Plain Truth - August 1968, page 42)

Written In 1968 – Fulfilled In 2017

The leaders of Europe went to the Vatican to seek guidance from the Pope. If the EU leaders accept the Pope’s advice, then we are surely witnessing the beginning of the prophesy in Revelation chapter 17. It looks like the “woman” - the great false church - is beginning to “ride” - to control – the “Beast”!

The European Union’s Catholic Roots

“Whatever the EU is today, its beginnings are inseparable from Catholic thought. When the British government, in the early 1950s, was weighing up the pros and cons of joining the European project, one significant worry was its noticeably Catholic flavour. Conspiracy theorists still argue that the whole idea of European ‘union’ is a Vatican plot, probably inspired by the Antichrist.

Recent Popes have recognised that Europe has problems that need to be addressed. ‘But they have never suggested that we will do this if we abandon the European project or the quest for ever closer union.’ What’s needed, Father Ashley Beck, who teaches at St Mary’s University, Twickenham says, is for Catholics to involve themselves in European institutions, and reconnect the EU with its Christian roots. Those roots run impressively deep.” (catholicherald.co.uk)

The source of those “Christian Roots” is the Holy Roman Empire!

What’s Next?

Many top financial anylists are predicting a huge financial market crash. Here is the latest offering:

“If Jim Rogers is right, the worst stock market crash that any of us has ever seen is right around the corner. For the past 15 years, Rogers has been a frequent guest analyst on CNBC, Fox News and elsewhere, and he is immensely respected for the depth of knowledge and experience that he brings to the table. So the fact that he is warning that we are about to see the worst stock market crash in any of our lifetimes is making a lot of waves in the financial community.

It has been said that those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. As a society, we certainly didn’t learn much from the horrible financial disaster of 2008, and now so many of the exact same patterns are repeating once again. An unprecedented financial crisis is most definitely heading our way, and the only thing left to be answered is how soon it will get here.” (theeconomiccollapseblog.com)

A Breakdown Of Civilization Coming?

So much of what Christ revealed through His end time Apostle has come to pass. The Nazi roots of the EU are now well documented. The EU is a virtual dictatorship. Germany has destabilised Europe by allowing over one million young Muslim men to migrate to Europe. Europe is in turmoil as a result. The European leaders have gone to the Pope at the Vatican, seeking help and advice to save their faltering dream. In view of what many financial analysts are predicting for the near future, we would do well to review what Mr Armstrong wrote back in 1984:

I can see now the event that is going to trigger the formation of reunification in Europe; the resurrection of the Medieval Holy Roman Empire that we’ve been looking forward to, that is prophesied to come …I believe that some event is going to happen suddenly just like out of a blue sky that is going to shock the whole world and is going to cause the nations of Europe to realize they must unite.

Well, now I think I can see what may be the very event that is going to trigger it and that is the economic situation in the world. Now when the financial structure breaks down, all civilization is going to break down. I just wanted to say that much - maybe you can begin to see how serious this thing can become!(Sermon - 7 July 1984)

But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober(1 Thessalonians 5:4-6).

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)
