How can the COGs grow in grace and knowledge? It interesting to note that only the Church of God 7th Day has its statement of beliefs open at the end of each proculmation! This is the Group that HWA came out of to start the Radio Church of God. HWA left to form his own group because he rediscovered the Holy Days. 1. The Feast of Trumpets,( Sept.25 2014) 2. The Day of Atonement, 3 The feast of Tabernacles, 4 The Eight Day, 5. The Passover,6 The Days of Unleavened Bread, 7. Pentecost. This was inspired by Almighty God our father in heaven. His generation passed away but many still keep Gods’ Holy days Holy and are heading toward the coming Kingdom of God. Our Father who art in Heaven has appoint his son and our savior to rule over the earth for a 1000 years to bring the long awaited truth and justice that has alleuded mankind for 6000 years. Since 1974 many WWCOGs from HWA fold have started several Hundred offshoots of COGs. Most of them have failed and the rest sputter along. Without great leadership as we see in Amercia today, the people suffer. The COGs are no different! Men seeking power and control over others, in exchange for truth and knowledge. The COGs in general are behind in knowledge because they are holding onto information that wasn’t understood 20 years ago, let alone in the 1970s, or 80s! But then in the mid 1990s Daniel’s prophecy really began to kick in. Dan.12:4 Knowledge is doubling at a speed of 3-6 months according to the internet. Interestingly the fear of change that came from the doctrinal changes of the WWCOG 1995 under the Joseph Tkach sealed the fate of most COGs going forward, right when we could grow in knowledge through access to the internet, we allowed fear of change to override what was at our finger tips! So we didn’t go backward and we haven’t gone forward were on the fence, neither hot or Cold! Satan is amazing, he got 75 percent to go back and 25 percent to stand still.
Meanwhile the two biggest paradigm shifts in biblical knowledge are about to unfold, the identity of the end time beast power, and Christianities self inflicted wound the Trinity! Which are directly at the front of what’s going on in the world and what the threat is and who it is coming from. The new super power that is being created out of a series of errors from the USA and Britton and some of its allies are coming about because of years of pulling away from any sign of obedience to God’s ways. Accient Israel’s fall and modern Israel’s fall come from the same source, exchanging the Godly for the ungodly. Every day the scenario grows stronger against us and more in favor of the enemy. Weak Christianity and weak COGs are at the core of the problem. Mainstream Christianity has turned its back on the bible, Evangelical Christianity has zeal but they practice lawlessness. The Kings and priest in the COGs have become complacent in that, there statement of beliefs are sealed and have leadership which doesn’t allow for to new understanding in light of new information and comparison, it clings to the past and prevents itself from seeing the paradigm changes taking place on the world stage! Brethren we are commanded to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling. This isn’t something a organization or family member can do for you, this is a lifetime commitment developing a personal relationship with our lord and savior Jesus Christ and with his God and father. The rising Islamic Beast power which beheads the saints of the father for their testimony of Who? “Jesus” Rev.20:4 and “I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God.” Brethren I grew up Catholic and the Catholics are not going to behead people for believing in Jesus Christ, but there is a Satanic religion that is doing it right now. ISIL is systematicly beheading women and children in Iraq, in the Kurdish area’s. In Somolia, Islamic extremist are beheading Christians daily. Brethren we must look at the facts in September 2014. Second, the understanding of the One God of Israel, is the key to understanding the strength of Islam and the weakness of Christianity! Without this knowledge one is at a great disadvantage and is defenseless in their arguments against this terrorist religion. Now below is shining light blog writer James Malm without this end time understanding and he is writing to unsuspecting COG members that Jesus was alive before his birth and was talking to Ezekiel.
Read this with what I wrote today in mind and see if the light goes on!
Why physical and spiritual Israel will go into great tribulation.
This is a very powerful warning and indictment of today’s church of God groups, who idolize men and have no zeal to keep the Word of God, preferring instead to follow the false traditions of men. (Like the false god worship of the Nicean, worshipping the created instead of the creator.)
8:1 And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell there upon me.
A description of Messiah in part of his glory.
8:2 Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber.
The idolatry of physical Israel is an allegory of the idolatry of the called of the spiritual Ekklesia today. Everything that happened to physical Israel was meant for our instruction, and is an allegory of Spiritual Israel who are supposed to have God’s spirit and supposed to know better.
1 Cor 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. 12 Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.
Christ shows Ezekiel the idolatry of the Ekklesia who have provoked him to Jealousy. remember this is about the end time physical and spiritual Israel, and most particularly about the end time spiritual Israel of the Ekklesia
8:3 And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy. 8:4 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.
Christ directs Ezekiel to see his glory in the north, and at the gate of the altar sits the image of jealousy. That is to say that instead of exalting, worshipping and obeying the Eternal the people exalt, follow and obey their own idols in the name of the LORD!
This is exactly what is done in the church of God groups today; as they claim to worship and obey God, while exalting their idols of men, corporate entities and the traditions of men above the Word of God, to keep the false traditions of men, and condemn any zeal to keep the whole Word of God!
These men and corporations are a modern “Image of Jealousy” as they have become the objects of the Ekklesia’s affections. The Ekklesia have exalted their love for their own ways, above any love or zeal for the Word of their espoused Husband!
8:5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.
Brethren, the COG Groups today have set up an “Image of Jealousy” to Christ, because Christ must compete with the idols of men, corporate entities and false tradition for the affections of the brethren
