Today I want to explain this work and how it will progress up to the coming of Christ.
As most of you know I have been diligently doing studies through all of the books of the Bible for nearly ten years now, which studies have never been done by the Armstrong based corporate church groups.
At this point studies through the scriptures are over half done for the third time and considerable advances have been made in the format, understanding and explanations each time.
This has been a tremendous learning experience for me and I have tried hard to set an example of correcting my mistakes and growing in knowledge and understanding, rooting out all discovered errors and warmly embracing all the truth that God reveals.
Besides being my personal studies, these studies have been published for the purpose of setting that example and for sharing the Word of God with all who care to study along with me.
Over the years I have been in contact with many leaders of the Big Three organizations and many others as well. I can say for certain that these organizations will not respond to God’s two servants to leave their land at God’s timing.
I expect a serious period of conflict soon. A seemingly great victory will be achieved, to be followed a genuine Middle East peace deal. This victory and peace deal (1 Thess 5:3), will bring the promise of tremendous economic prosperity; and when God’s two warn that the time is now, most of these COG leaders will say that just like the false prophet is performing miracles by the wicked one, so are these two.
Why? They will be deceived because their own false traditions have not been fulfilled, and they will be deceived by a belief that they will still do a great work and will be deceived by the appearance of coming prosperity.
That will be the choice separating those people of faith who obey God from those who blindly follow idols of men. These organizations will be cast into the correction of great tribulation along with all of their followers, while those who are turning to live by every Word of God will obey God’s warnings.
A few hundred have been studying the scriptures with me and are alert to the present situation, but many thousands are still deeply asleep and will be caught in the trap.
This work will bear the fruit of a few hundred now, but it will not end there!
Once Jerusalem and Judah are defeated and occupied and the dollar comes crashing down, many individuals if not groups will have their eyes opened and will speedily sincerely repent and seek true godliness.
But, where are they to look in a darkened world? That is when the next phase of this work will begin!
What I have done and am doing, is to establish a body of godly commentary and study through the entire Word of God along with some studies into key doctrines.
I firmly believe that God has inspired this effort and the proof is in the continual growth in understanding from God. I intend to have the Bible Studies site running as long as possible during the tribulation. Of course I will fully support God’s two and they will certainly add to or make changes as God inspires them, but a solid core of instruction through every Word of God is being established as a foundation for their work.
Remember that the dollar dependent countries will collapse over a three and one half year period and that Europe and the rest of the world will be extremely prosperous for at least the first two years. There will be a great need, not only for the preaching of God’s two, but also for studies through every Word of God as a foundation for their preaching.
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; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
They will certainly have other plans as God leads them, and they may have other sites proclaiming their warnings as well as having access to public media, but they will also have a solid core of foundational studies through every Word of God as backup, something which has taken years to build!
Once the few hundred have left and Judea is vanquished and the dollar collapses, most of the remaining brethren will turn to a zeal to learn God’s Word, and the studies will be there and waiting for them!
God’s two servants will also be speaking out to the whole world and many others will over time, be convicted and will need more than the warnings, they will need deep studies into every Word of God and into solid doctrine. Remember that 12,000 of each of the tribes of Israel along with multitudes of others, will be sealed with God’s Holy Spirit and converted AFTER the tribulation of the seven seals and just before the trumpets begin to sound!
Again, of course God’s two will be able to make any changes they need to make, but the core will be there for them to work with; and I imagine they will have very much else to do.
Brethren, this work was never about taking multiple thousands to a refuge [I would that, that were possible], it is about far more than that. It is about preparing the way of the LORD by teaching every Word of God and by teaching all people to live by every Word of God!
This phase of God’s work is now almost completed and I hope to have the studies complete the third time around and more or less finalized by late this year. Of course there is much else to do if time should take another year.
Brethren, I need your prayers. I also need your financial support to finish the job I have been given to do. Your support will do far more than reach a few hundred now.
When the tribulation begins, people will be shocked into a genuine hunger for the truth of every Word of God, and a foundation of studies through every Word of God will be there to encourage and help many tens of thousands of brethren, and many, many more who have not yet been exposed to the truth. Helping them during their hour of deep sorrow!
This work has always been about preparing the entire Bride who are alive at this end time, and was never limited to warning about the tribulation only! That is why I have published studies line by line through every Word of God!
Dear brethren, I do love every one of you and I hope to meet you all in God’s refuge, and if not then most certainly in the resurrection to eternal life!
Never be offended because others do not understand now, rather work to help them!
God is working everything out for the ultimate good!
May God Bless All His Faithful!
Numbers 6:22 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
6:23 Speak unto Aaron and unto his sons, saying, On this wise ye shall bless the children of Israel, saying unto them,
6:24 The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: 6:25 The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: 6:26 The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
6:27 And they shall put my name upon the children of Israel, and I will bless them.
