Today’s famine [scarcity] of the true Gospel of Salvation will soon be corrected by a tremendous revival during the correction of the great tribulation.
There has been a great famine [scarcity] of the true Gospel of repentance to salvation on the earth since the late first century. This world has been asleep in the night; but the light of the true Gospel of repentance to salvation is breaking forth and the dawn of a new world of godliness is at hand!
I know that many have been completely hoodwinked into believing that today’s weak business model outreach is the true Gospel and that there will be a famine of the Word during the tribulation. Please bare with me and read the article, then judge by the Word of God what is true.
The word famine means “scarcity” and today the true Gospel of Salvation is very scarce, only available at TheShiningLight as the corporate church groups teach an inoffensive business model and utterly refuse to:
Isaiah 58:1 Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.
or to fulfill the duty of a watchman (Ezekiel 33).
First: The Great Test and Lesson
During this dispensation God is preparing a people to become his priests [teachers of righteousness] and kings [rulers] in his Kingdom, forever.
In order to be certain that there will never be another rebellion leading his people astray like Lucifer led one third of the angels astray (Rev 12:4), it is essential that the Called Out learn to put God first above all else.
This lesson by God is in progress today and is the reason for the present situation in the Assemblies, as God allows us to make our mistakes so that we fully learn and completely internalize the habit of absolute obedience to God and of following men ONLY as they are loyal to God.
Today’s brethren have been set up to learn to put God first above any other being. This process began in this latter day with Herbert Armstrong, who was a very impressive man in talent, persuasiveness and accomplishments: but who was limited in his understanding because much of scripture was sealed to understanding until the time of revealing immediately before the tribulation.
Daniel 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Very many fell into the trap of looking at the man and began to idolize the person as if his words were God’s Word, instead of proving his words by the Word of God. People began to idolize a man or corporate churches and now God is unsealing the truths that he wanted to keep hidden for our time; but the people reject those truths from God preferring the false traditions of their idols of men.
The critical problem is that at some point people who were used to idolizing men could be led astray if those men went astray.
The only way that God can be sure of us for all eternity, is to allow us to go through the experience of trusting in men and thereby learn the hard way that only God and the Word of God should be exalted above all else.
In the main, today’s brethren have fallen away from God by rejecting the truth in order to cleave to past traditions which are turning out to be mistaken.
God told us that many things were sealed [hidden] until the very end time when they would be revealed and knowledge of the scriptures would be increased, but many reject God’s promised revelations because they are too proud to admit that they and their idols have been wrong.
Today God has not left the brethren without a warning so that they would not be taken by surprise when God’s two servants begin their work just prior to the onset of the tribulation.
TheShiningLight has been presenting studies through every word of Holy Scripture and many doctrinal and prophecy / news studies for years now; restoring things which had been lost, presenting deeper understandings and revealing much that was hidden and sealed until our day.
Today many refuse and reject this new knowledge which was promised by God through his angel. No matter how well proved the point is, many take the attitude that if the understanding did not come from them then it must be wrong or it is not important; and they close their minds, refusing to even listen; mainly because they put the words of their corporate church organizations and idols of men above the Word of God.
The sin of idolizing men and organizations is the principle problem and the foundation of most of the other problems among the brethren today.
God has allowed this problem to creep into the Assemblies today so that he can teach us about idolatry of men and the need to put God first above all else, now while we are in the flesh; so that God can resurrect to serious responsibilities only those who have proven that they will be absolutely loyal to him and will never follow anyone astray ever again.
The lesson plan is to teach us by allowing us to experience being led astray to idolize men, so that we will learn and clearly understand that loyalty to God means proving the words of every person by the Word of God and then obeying God only; regardless of how impressive or persuasive that person is.
At this time the brethren have had years of warnings and very soon God will reveal his Two Servants who will direct the faithful according to God’s will. Then a few hundred will obey God while the vast majority will reject them because they are relying on the false traditions of men and because the corporate church organizations will reject them and offer many excuses.
At that time a few will go on to other training while the majority reject the warnings and increase in understandings promised by God and are cast into great tribulation, where they will find all of their false traditions are wrong and they will be forced by reality to admit that they were wrong and that they should have put God’s Word first above their idols of men and corporate churches.
Then once these folks have learned their lesson many will sincerely repent and become fit for the resurrection to leadership roles.
First God will withdraw his protection on the Jewish and Anglo Saxon people because their wickedness has come to the full. Spiritually this means that the daily heavenly intercession of Jesus Christ to bless us in spite of all our sins will stop and God’s blessings including his protection will be withdrawn.
Then the son of perdition will be set up doing miracles in the Vatican and then God’s two witnesses will warn the brethren that the time has come, but the corporate churches will reject them. The faithful will then obey the instructions of God’s two servants, while the majority will reject them.
Then when the miracle worker goes to the Temple Mount the Jewish extremists will oppose the provisions of the peace plan and conflict will break out.
Enraged Palestinians backed by Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and the Arab states will then attack the Jewish state. Many Jewish extremist settlements will be overwhelmed and there will be massive bloodletting on all sides and Europe will intervene for the sake of ending the bloodshed.
Europe will intervene in the name of peace and it is possible that the intervention will be welcomed by all sides including the moderate Jews who are in the majority.
In this way the great tribulation will begin, but today many wrongly believe that the tribulation will begin with Europe attacking the United States with nuclear weapons. That error was taught by HWA but the scriptures say that:
Daniel 8:25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand.
In other words the New Federal Europe will gain world dominance through non violent economic means. It is also written that it will take 42 months to completely humble the Anglo Saxon nations.
Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half [42 months]; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
The truth is that the corporate churches wrongly believe that a physical Daily Sacrifice must be started first and then stopped, and that the tribulation will begin with the nuking of America, therefore they will be in denial that the tribulation is under way well into the actual tribulation!
Europe will stop the bloodshed in the Middle East and enforce peace and will begin talks to enter an alliance with the Islamic nations. These talks could be very quick or they could take many weeks but they will result in Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the Palestinians and the Arab States, aligning with the New Europe along with other natural allies in the predominately Catholic nations of Latin America etc.
As part of the deal Europe will turn the remaining Jewish areas in Palestine into virtual ghettos and work to deport as many Jews as possible while the Middle East nations will for their part reject the Petrodollar in favor of the currency in use in Europe. This will bring Europe into economic dominance, and the dollar dependent nations will collapse in severe economic, political and many other crises.
That is how the New Federal Europe will bring down the Anglo Saxon nations.
The first four seals of Revelation are the rise of the miracle working man of sin in the Vatican, the war with the Jewish state, famine and pestilence,
The fifth seal is a great martyrdom of God’s repentant who will have to die to prove the sincerity of their repentance.
During this time as the Anglo Saxon nations and Judea collapse in catastrophic decline the economic dominance of Europe [the last revival of the Daniel 2 statue, Babylon the Great] will grow tremendously (Rev 18). This process will progress over about 24 to 30 months time.
The Revival of the True Gospel of Salvation
When the tribulation begins the various corporate COG organizations and many of the Laodicean brethren will be in denial, but many will quickly be disillusioned with the traditions of men which brought them into such trials and they will quickly repent.
Large numbers will die to prove the sincerity of their repentance; but their example after having been turned into Paul’s by the great correction, will greatly impress many others. In addition to the preaching of God’s two the example of the sincere repentance and sacrifice of many Laodicean brethren will further the Gospel.
Then at about two years after the occupation of Judea and the snow balling catastrophic Anglo Saxon decline, the sixth seal of Revelation will be opened!
The sixth seal is the appearing of Jesus Christ the Messiah in the sky!
When Christ appears in the heavens and the tribulation has humbled many, at least 144,000 will sincerely repent and turn to embrace the Almighty with a whole heart!
The Sixth Seal
The sixth seal is the appearance of Jesus Christ in his majestic glory for all people to see.
At the presence of Christ in his glory the earth shall tremble and shake [probably producing volcanic activity] and the atmospheric dust will make the moon appear red.
Consider that in the night we see the stars and during the day the brightness of the sun hides the stars and they seem to vanish from our sight. Even so, the brightness of Christ shining in his full glory, will overwhelm the sun itself which will disappear from sight in the presence of the Glorious One!
Revelation 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; 6:13 And the stars [space objects in our solar system and many astral objects like meteors and boulders will fall from space doing much damage] of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll [the sky will disappear, all else overwhelmed by the incredible brightness of the light of our Redeemer] when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
After the man of sin is set up in the Vatican, after the New Europe and its leader are set up, after the defeat of Judah and the collapse of the Israelite nations, after a period of great suffering in the Israelite nations, Jesus Christ will appear in his glory in the heavens heralding the onset of the seventh seal which is the seven trumpets.
When they see this, the wicked will be angry but many who are being called out from physical Israel who are in tribulation will have any pride that is left totally crushed as they see the glory of the Holy One!
6:15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 6:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
Today there is a great famine of the Word as these corporate church groups proclaim a false business model gospel in place of the true Gospel of sincere Repentance to Salvation. See the two “True Gospel” articles.
God is beginning to correct and revive his people and the true Gospel of repentance to salvation will again be declared; first by this work, then by God’s two, and very quickly they will be joined by thousands of sincerely repentant Laodiceans. This will then be followed by the conversion and example of thousands more who repent at the teaching and example of God’s two and the Laodiceans and then the 144,000 will be converted and sealed with God’s Spirit (Eph 1:13, 4:30) after having heard the preaching of the true Gospel of Salvation and then seeing the sign of our LORD in the heavens!
Then Europe will attack Asia and Asia will respond:
Daniel 11:44 But tidings out of the east and out of the north shall trouble him: therefore he shall go forth with great fury to destroy, and utterly to make away many.
Revelation 9:15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.
The term “two hundred thousand thousand” is not an accurate translation. The literal Greek is Revelation 9:16 and the number of the forces of the horsemen [is] two myriads of myriads, and I heard the number of them. See Young’s literal translation. The actual meaning is simply “a vast unspecified number.”
If we count back thirteen months from the end of the 42 month tribulation the Asian counter attack can be dated at about 29 months after the abomination is set up doing miracles in the Vatican.
While this great Asian war is going on the Anglo Saxon people will continue to fall ever deeper into complete collapse; but the 144,000 repentant brethren as well as God’s two servants and the very many who were converted BEFORE the sixth seal and are still living, along with many others who will sincerely repent at their preaching; will be a Shining Light of example teaching the true Gospel of sincere repentance to salvation to all who see them!
Then close to the end of the 42 months Jesus Christ will come to resurrect and change the living faithful; and Israel/Judah will see their resurrection and they will turn to sincerely repent and wholeheartedly seek the coming of their Deliverer!
Then, even when these resurrected chosen are in heaven before the throne of God the Father at the marriage of the Lamb (Rev 15, 19) God will still not leave the earth without a witness but the true Gospel will be preached by the very angels of God (Rev 14:6-9)!
Then when the resurrected chosen return to the earth a few weeks later with their LORD, they will be wholeheartedly received by Israel/Judah while the armies of the wicked are destroyed!
Messiah will step onto the Mount of Olives with many resurrected faithful and Judah will wise up to greet and welcome the King of kings as he enters Jerusalem with overflowing joy. Judah and all Israel will rejoice in their Deliverer and they will serve him to live by every Word of God for evermore!
This is how the way of the LORD will be prepared and the true Gospel of Salvation will steadily increase until after Christ comes the Holy Spirit will be poured out on all flesh on a Feast of Pentecost (Joel 2:28) and the knowledge of God will fill the earth!
Habakkuk 2:14 For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea.
