“. . . The end has come it has DAWNED for you; Behold it has come! . . . a day of trouble is near . . . Now upon you, I will soon pour out My fury . . . So you, son of man: I have made you A WATCHMAN for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and WARN them for Me” (Ezekiel 7:6-8; 33:7).
“Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful Day of the LORD” (Malachi 4:5; Matthew 17:10-11).
It is so utterly tragic that the Warning Scriptures above are ignored as meaningless to most of the membership. This is due primarily to their leaders who are off-track from the true teachings and their rejection of the endtime Elijah and the Warning Messages given through him by Jesus Christ of what is now being seen as the impending destruction of the House of Joseph.
History Repeating Itself
When looking closely at what took place in Jerusalem in 66-70 A.D., one can clearly see a direct parallel with what is being witnessed in phenomenon UNPARALLELED in our time in heavenly signs; such as: lightning striking twice the dome of St. Peters, a meteor striking Russia—both taking place five days apart in February 2013! Also record-breaking acts in nature: devastating tornadoes, record-breaking floods, drought, snowfall, etc.
A Four-Year Warning
The duality of the warnings that began being given by God in 66 A.D. was four years before the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. Based on the many major unsolvable and accelerating problems facing the House of Joseph, it would appear there will be little more than four years, if any, before destruction also befalls the House of Joseph.
The Day of Pentecost
This Holy Day, observed in Jerusalem in 69 A.D., played a very significant role for it was on this Day the final warning came from God to the Jewish people of the impending destruction of their city.
Ancient History in Bible Light, Page 261, Miller: “Again on the night of the last Pentecost ever celebrated in the Sanctuary “as the priests were going by night, as their custom was, to perform their sacred ministrations, they said that, in the first place, they felt a quaking, and heard a sound as of a great multitude, saying, ‘Let us remove hence.’
“Josephus adds: ‘But these men interpreted some of these signals [the beginning of the heavenly signs occurred in 66 A.D.] to their own pleasure, and some of them they utterly despised, until their madness was demonstrated, both by the taking of their city and their own destruction.”
Historical writings reveal the destruction began taking place on the night of the Passover in 70 A.D.—134 days later Jerusalem was conquered by the Romans and the Temple of God was burned to the ground.
Is History Repeating Itself?
Page 262: “The Escape of the Christians” . . . “Some time before the siege, following the warning in Luke 21:20-22, they withdrew to Pella, beyond the Jordan, led by Symeon . . .”
As it was with the Jews in Jerusalem who dismissed these heavenly warning SIGNS, so it is with present-day society who have moved on, leaving behind them what they have already witnessed with no serious contemplation.
Thus it will come to pass just as Jesus Christ said: “. . . It will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth”(Luke 21:35).
Church Members Sleeping
The Church Era of the Laodiceans, due to their self-righteousness, is slumbering in sleep believing they are self-sufficient and in need of nothing! Matthew 25:1-13; Revelation 3:17.
The Philadelphian Era MUST learn from the past along with the present, otherwise there could be a most horrible and terrible price to pay with the cost of the crown of life and kingship (Revelation 3:10-13). The Apostle Paul wrote a warning for each of God’s people:
“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time TO AWAKE OUT OF SLEEP; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand. Therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light”(Romans 13:11-12; Ephesians 6:10-18).
The Day of the Lord
Based on the miraculous heavenly signs in Jerusalem in 70 A.D., and with prophetic Scriptures in mind, undoubtedly there will be other heavenly visible SIGNS, as a type and forerunner of the very endtime pointing to the rapidly approaching closeness of the Great Tribulation; and the return of Jesus Christ.
Whether, or not—there are all of the other SIGNS connecting with prophecy that reveal how close we are to the end by the increasing gripping drought leading us into the famine, disease epidemics, nuclear warfare, and the Great Tribulation! A time so terribly bad as never before witnessed or ever will be again (Matthew 24:21; Daniel 12:1).
Are There Few to Be Saved?
Thinking about their own salvation and others, the disciples asked if only a very few would end up being saved. The answer Jesus Christ gave to His disciples should be of great concern met with soberness and soul searching:
Then one said to Him, “Lord, are there FEW who are (to be) SAVED?” And He said to them, “Strive (Grk: struggle, literally agonize as in agony) to ENTER through the narrow gate, for MANY, I say to you, will SEEK TO ENTER and will NOT be able . . .” (Luke 13:23-28).
There are many grave warnings in Scripture of God’s people possibly being deceived and led astray by false teachers with their erroneous teachings. Members should always be vigilant and on guard knowing to follow them will lead into the Great Tribulation with possible loss of eternal life as warned by Jesus Christ:
“Beware of false prophets (ministers), who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but INWARDLY they are ravenous wolves . . . [further] Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall ENTER the kingdom of heaven, BUT he who does the will of My Father in heaven . . .” (Matthew 7:15, 21-29).
To be under the protective caring love of Jesus Christ from all that we will soon be experiencing, we MUST be watching vigilantly, praying always seeking a closeness with our wonderful Father and Jesus Christ so as to be graced with His loving protective care and ultimately be able to stand before His glorious presence when He returns (Luke 21:36). Nothing else really matters.
Realizing the heavenly signs are already being seen as forerunners of the fullness of the Day of the Lord, no one will be able to say they were not warned over many years by God’s late apostle when the fullness of these things come to pass:
“Now WHEN these things ‘BEGIN TO HAPPEN,’ LOOK UP and Lift Up Your Heads, BECAUSE your redemption draws near” (Luke 21:25-28).
Surely everyone who watches the news media cannot help but realize how bad off this nation really is, including England and the other nations of Israel; so utterly bad off, there is no solution other than repentance and turning to God.
The House of Joseph is now on the very precipice of terrible problems soon to surface as never before witnessed by this generation—that will spell their end as nations—along with the deaths of many of the members of God’s Church!
The Gospel/The Ezekiel Warning
In the little time left there is yet God’s Work to be completed—a real loving and caring responsibility of taking His true gospel to the world as a witness and food for God’s scattered people along with the Ezekiel Warning Message (Matthew 24:14; Ezekiel 33:1-11).
Should YOU not be in the faithful Church Jesus Christ is using in this end-time to support His Work via of the Recorded Works of His late apostle on our websites? (Revelation 3:7-13; Matthew 24:45-47).
Please know by making the needed move could save oneself from experiencing the Great Tribulation and the possible loss of life! A coming time so utterly sad there will only be a few who will have heeded the WARNINGS, the majority won’t, as God’s prophet makes known:
The Duality of Scripture
“Also I set WATCHMEN over you, saying, ‘Listen to the sound of the Trumpet!’ But they said, ‘We will NOT listen’ ”(Jeremiah 6:17).
As to Why
“. . . You have forsaken the LORD your God and the FEAR of Me is NOT in you,” says the LORD God of hosts(Jeremiah 2:19).
This small Church is being used by Jesus Christ as A CONDUIT OR INSTRUMENT to make all of those RECORDED WORKS of God’s late apostle available, which are even more timely and revealing now than they were then.
Most sincerely and lovingly I ask: Where will you and I be when disaster suddenly springs upon the Church and Israel as a snare? Unless we are VIGILANTLY watching, praying and enduring faithfully, while CLINGING to the TRUTH once delivered to the saints and restored by God’s promised Elijah, we could be caught up in it and our cry to God would then be too late (Malachi 4:4-6; Jude 3-4; Luke 21:34-36; Revelation 3:8, 10). We MUST be preparing ourselves SPIRITUALLY while there is yet remaining some daylight.
The MYSTERY OF THE AGES
Jesus Christ led His apostle and the promised Elijah—His teacher—to write the last book of his life, THE MYSTERY OF THE AGES, to be A REMINDER of all of the doctrinal teachings Christ RESTORED within His Church through him. By the use of this original unedited book (ISBN 0-396-08773-6) with the Holy Bible, His people should be enabled to recognize the strong deception that is now on His Church by Satan the devil and keep themselves away from it.
The Philadelphia Remnant
To be kept informed from a Biblical perspective the meaning of the continued record breaking disasters in the nations of Israel and other major problems that are now coming closer together we offer freely a subscription to our magazine. It can also be read on our website (www.cog-ff.com).
The Ten Commandments Book
This fairly new book continues to support what Jesus Christ used His Promised Elijah of the End-time to restore: the Ten Commandments, Statutes and Judgments, along with the original Doctrinal Teachings (Malachi 4:4-6; Matthew 17:10-11; Jude 3).
The Three Elijahs
The book of The Three Elijahs can be read on our website (www.cog-ff.com) or downloaded from it. This book makes known how these Three Men were used by God to perform basically the same responsibilities and for the same reasons.
God had ample reason for these three men to have the same name as Elijah. And though John and Mr. Armstrong had their own names, they were “. . . to go forth before Him (Jesus Christ) in the spirit and power of Elijah”(Luke 1:16-17). The identity of the end-time Elijah is established with Biblical proof and by his fruits.
