2014 Feast Introduction

Plimsol left a comment:

On the PKG website they have put up a “Feast 2014 Introduction” from Ron.

There’s a new prophet!!! Guess who!

Without further introduction, here is a copy of Ron’s Introduction for your commenting:

———————————————————————————————–

Well, a special hello to everyone! Laura talked me into this short introduction this year for the Feast, and although it’s going to be a little short.

This reminds me of a greeting from Mr. Herbert Armstrong. In the last several years of his life he had a satellite hook-up to Feast sites around the world toward the beginning of each Feast of Tabernacles. And I can still hear that hearty, dynamic greeting. He would say, “Greeting’s, brethren, around the world!”

So again, greetings to all of you at this 2014 Feast of Tabernacles! Hello and greetings to all of you meeting together in Australia, New Zealand, to those gathered in The Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and to all of you in Canada and the U.S.

We also have some in a few other locations, scattered in different areas of the world, of those who could not be at sponsored Feast sites, but are at home by themselves observing this Feast and in some cases are able to get together with a few others. Now, we need to remember them as they’re not able to be in larger groups at organized sponsored sites, and they don’t have the opportunity that you do to hear this message. However, within a couple of days, it will be placed in with the sermon section of this years Feast sermons as a PDF (a written file only) so that at least everyone can read it.

Now, there is one other area that I’d like to extend a special greeting, as they must sometimes feel a little cut off, and that is to those of you gathered together in Hawaii, who, although you are part of the U.S., you are stuck out there a long way away from other church locations. So no one is forgotten and all of you are needed as vital parts of the begotten Family of God.

So you are all now observing a time that pictures the soon coming millennial period where this world and all its ways are to be put far behind you. So you are to do this at this time and enjoy and rejoice at this Feast – 8 full days together in God’s Feast.

Although I was sent to prison for serving God’s Church, as everything was actually about how God’s Church functions based on our beliefs of this being the end-time. So again, although I was sent to prison by the government where I live, it’s nothing new for God’s apostles and prophets. Now, Paul was in prison and later killed, just as Peter. And most of the original apostles were imprisoned and killed by the governments of their time. And we are only fairly certain about one, and that’s the apostle John, who was imprisoned in his time who was able to live out his life and die naturally. And we know of even John the Baptist who was imprisoned and then beheaded. Of course many of the prophets of old were imprisoned and many of those killed. So, as I was going to say, although I was sent to prison: God’s. Work. Did. Not. Stop. It has continued on, even as the “gates of hell” cannot stand against God, against God’s Church. In this case, the administration of the Church has continued on just as it was before, still being led by God’s last apostle in this age of mankind.

Today there is an important and strong message God is giving to His Church at the beginning of this Feast. During this final phase of the end-time, God has been pushing forward the recognition of women and their service to His Church. Now, I find that awesomely exciting!

Now, within the Church, God is giving us a wider, open window into changes that will occur in families, society, and the Church concerning the freedom from bondage that’s being given to women. This freedom is also a much greater freedom being given to both couples in a marriage, to all in the families, and even a greater, true freedom within God’s own Church.

Now, along those lines, what I mentioned a moment ago (repeating it): During this final phase of the end-time, God has been pushing forward the recognition of woman and their service to His Church. God has reserved this very time right now, while you’re listening to this, to make some very special announcements.

A while back I told the Church that there was the need for another level of service (of an office, of an ordination) that was needed in God’s Church. God is revealing that. That service was to be above that of a senior elder. God and Christ were showing me that it was to be a service, an ordination for both men and women. And as I mentioned then, I did not know what the description should be. Finally, when preparing this message, it was given to me, although we (Laura and myself) had considered other descriptions (or names) for this particular ordination, yet is has been made clear to me there is a term that we are already familiar with, and that is of that of a “pastor.” So that description is from the meaning of “pastoral,” which in this sense of the definition “is that of giving direct spiritual care or guidance as a function of responsibility within the Church,” and it ties in with further description in scripture that I’ll mention in a moment.

There is an order to ordinations that begins first under Christ with that of an apostle, then a prophet, and then followed by that of an evangelist, and now this reinstituted function just mentioned for a pastor. Now, the duties of a pastor are a part of the responsibility that already belongs to an apostle, a prophet, and an evangelist, and obviously they also have more duties that go beyond that of a pastor. This description of the work of a pastor is not one that is given to a senior elder. An elder may be involved in communicating such things to others as they have been instructed to do so from time to time by those over them; in other words, the source then of such spiritual care or guidance that in the past has only been coming from an evangelist, a prophet, or an apostle. Now that can also come directly from a pastor.

Now I’m going to read part of the primary description of such a service in the Church. It comes from Titus 1:9. It states that such a person is known for holding fast the faithful word as he (and now she) has been taught. During Paul’s time within the Church, and ever since then, and until now, that’s been the case in the Church as only men were in the ministry.

So reading it again: “Holding fast the faithful word as he (and now also she) has been taught that he (or she) may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and convince (and that word “convince” meaning in essence, “to expose”) the gainsayers.” It goes on in context that such responsibility also includes the authority to give rebuke, to give correction when necessary, when carrying out such duties.

Now, for some men in the future who may be ordained to this position, their duties will likely be reflected in more preaching on their part, in other words, in split-sermons or sermons, but that will not be the case, basically, for women (that they do not give sermons). For women, this new role will entail more direct, administrative contact and involvement, and this will be for the men as well, that it will involve more direct, administrative contact and involvement in spiritual matters with an individual or a group of individuals.

Now, certainly much more can be said about these duties, but for the sake of time in this message I’m going to press forward in this by saying that the first, first ever to be ordained to this is a woman, and it is an ordination, not simply a raise in responsibilities from an elder to a senior elder that does not required an additional ordination. So the first woman to ever hold this office was ordained by her husband and my wife, Laura, just before the Feast, and she is Myrtle Harrell.

Now, there is another ordination that God has reserved to be announced at this time. It is one that God and Christ began revealing to me around Passover season (even before that) of this year. I even held off discussing it with Laura for a time. I didn’t follow through with what God was revealing clear back then at that point in time because I was waiting until God had made it highly and abundantly clear to me that this was to be done. Now, there’s much prayer and spiritual manifestation, in other words, proof, evidence, that came through answered prayer before I would proceed with this.

A little over a month ago I ordained Audra to a prophet. I deeply believe all ordinations are from God and Christ and it is up to each individual, how they yield to such, whether it be the one being ordained or others, the rest of the Church. This ordination, for me, was rather close to my own experience when God was revealing to me that He and His Son had made me a prophet. I resisted that for a time and wanted to be exceedingly certain before announcing it, just as I was in this case.

Now, these two ordinations, brethren, are exceedingly exciting! It needs to be clearly seen that these two ordinations were established by God and Christ and we are to collectively rejoice together in what they have given the Church.

Again, I’m going to repeat what I stated toward the beginning: “During this final phase of the end-time God has been pushing forward the recognition of women and their service to His Church.”

Well, brethren, the ordination of Audra also pushes forward the kind of importance that God places on His great desire to work in family. God has been working mightily within my family for great purpose, to powerfully magnify the great importance and focus He wants on family itself. WE are a family! And we are made up of many physical families whom God desires to work in and bless far more fully into the future!

The period of this Feast pictures the Millennium. It is indeed about true freedom being granted to women, and thus to families as well, where families will be able to begin experiencing the kind of fullness and excitement in life that can exist when division, opposition, and the destructiveness of sins that brings curses to families can be more fully conquered so that families can reap far greater and awesome blessings and riches in life, all of this so that the vision of God’s Family, Elohim, can be magnified far more greatly.

Well, brethren, we have a great work ahead of us. In little over a year I am to be released from imprisonment by a government where I reside, as it is not my government, for mine (and yours) is the Kingdom of God in which we are ambassadors. We reside in different nations of the world and we are to be good and law-abiding citizens, but we all belong to one Government, and that is the Government, the Kingdom of God.

That which you are witnessing right now in the Church would not be in this Feast if I were not in prison, so I do rejoice that this is where I am so that God can reveal more of His perfect purpose and will concerning what I have been blessed to tell you in this message.

You have been blessed to have much—much more revealed to you through posts at a time that sermons and the administration of the Church has continued, as God has pushed forward the importance and true role of women, and also as He has given further training and equal experience to more within the ministry.

Now the words, the things that I am going to be saying next do not adequately convey my deep feelings, happiness, and joy that by my being in prison I have been so incredibly blessed to see in the kind of strength, growth, and life that God is giving to His people in this phase of His work. I believe with all my being that I am exceedingly blessed above all people – yes, and especially even while I am here imprisoned—to see things that otherwise never would have
happened.

I have seen greater blessings and incredible spiritual knowledge, understanding, and potential wisdom being poured out upon God’s Church in posts and the blessings of growth and strength that have been produced in the Church in brethren in this Family. And I have been blessed to see my own son give a split-sermon mightily inspired by God to His Church. I’ve been blessed to see how God has already been using my own daughter as a prophet before she was ever ordained to it. She has been trained and given an ability to discern and judge the spirit of matters within the Church and ministry, that I have mentioned before, that exceeds that which has been given to the general ministry in the Church. In the past many months, that has been magnified to Laura and myself. It is something that only God and Christ can give, as it is with all spiritual abilities that are given within the Church. And I have been blessed to see the love of my life no longer being a silent witness but a prophet who is serving God’s Church in a powerful way, administratively and spiritually, in strong spiritual perception, discernment, and judgement as God has pushed her out in the forefront in an incredibly important role and function of service to the Church during this phase of God’s ongoing work.

Yes, brethren, I have been so exceedingly blessed. You, too, have been exceedingly blessed. You will grasp that in a much, much, much deeper way ten, twenty, and thirty years down the road in ways you cannot truly fathom right now, just as I would not have been able to begin to fathom what I have been blessed to see and experience within only nine years after having a heart attack where I could have died. But God had more for me to do and to witness and He does for you as well.

So, rejoice in this Feast. Give of yourself at this Feast! And above all, give thanks and love to the Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ, for all your blessings in life. Laura and I love each and every one of you and we encourage you to press forward in this fight that is before us and the work that is yet ahead, being ever faithful to God. Be strong and of good courage!

 

 

The Pre-Recorded Feast

All of the Feast of Tabernacles sermons are pre-recorded and posted on the PKG web site.  Last Great Day sermons as well.

Including one given by Jeremy Weinland.  Listening to it, sounds as though he’s reading from a script.  Perhaps prepared by the Silent Witness herself,

More Announcements

Here is a comment left on the last posting by “Jim”.  I am not able to verify its authenticity, but it’s consistent with other internal announcements.

————-  Following is the text of the announcements —————–

These are some miscellaneous announcements that are being made prior to the Feast that some will need to be aware of concerning being asked to give opening prayers at the Feast. This matter of giving an opening prayer also obviously applies to anyone doing so at any Sabbath service.

There is more information contained in this email that applies directly to many in the ministry, however, it would be good to make this material available to all within the Church. So those of you to whom this is being sent are being asked to go ahead and email this to the rest of the ministry in the area you are located and/or the region you are over (just as you forward other ministerial information). This should also be made available to all the brethren for their learning and understanding as well. This entire announcement is to be made available in its complete form.

Feast Prayers:

Although this is primarily being sent out so that everyone being asked to give opening prayers at a Feast site have this information, these guidelines also need to be followed by anyone who gives an opening prayer on the Sabbath.

The primary purpose of giving an opening prayer is to help establish the right atmosphere for the beginning of a service, where everyone is to focus keenly upon the message that God has blessed the Church to receive that day. Such a prayer helps to establish a needful transition from general fellowship with one another, to that of a quiet, respectful, and focused attention upon the message.

There are always basic matters that are to be addressed at such a time that should help everyone to focus upon the fact that we have gathered together before God to receive what He and His Son have blessed us to be able to receive. So thanks should always be given to God at such a time and a request for help to receive what He is offering to give us.

These opening prayers are a time that are to reflect the hope, desire, and gratitude that each individual in the congregation has toward the service that God is blessing them to partake in, as well as the fellowship being made available that day, so that each person can indeed say “Amen” – that they are in agreement and are themselves saying, “so be it.”

One of the main reasons for sending this information concerning opening prayers, is that this is an opportunity to petition God for all who are gathered together before Him, and this should be received and given in a strong spirit of humility. This means that the individual giving the prayer will want to do so in a way that does not unduly draw attention to themselves because this most certainly is not about the individual giving the prayer. It is about God and the right spirit of humility and meekness each of us should want to express and live toward Him.

However, there have been some who have been approached in the past concerning the wrong example that they have too often set when giving a prayer. Although sometimes, they seemingly don’t hear what is being said. Giving a prayer is absolutely NOT a time to draw attention to self. It is NOT a time to give a mini-sermonette. It is NOT a time to preach or teach. It is NOT a time to show how well we can present ourselves and/or show how spiritual we are.

It would be good to understand, that because some have consistently done this, that they have held themselves back in potential greater service to God’s Church. Sometimes, such individuals are no longer even asked to give a prayer because of some of these tendencies.

Elder’s Reports:

Some in the Church may not be aware of a requirement upon the ministry to send in monthly reports to the Church. Such reports are to reflect any concerns about a troubling situation that may exist in an area, perhaps some difficult trial someone may be experiencing, or to address some question of concern someone may have. Such reports are mostly to consist of a personal response from the minister as to the affects of current posts, sermons, or other things may be impacting their personal life. These reports are needful to help those in the administration of the Church to have a good sense as to the ongoing welfare of the Church and the ministry worldwide.

In the past, within the Worldwide Church of God, monthly reports were required of full-time ministers for basically the same purpose of keeping the headquarters of the Church informed and up-to-date concerning the Church and ministry. In my experience, it was always an unimaginable thing to hear about some in the ministry who did not follow that directive from headquarters. For me, it later magnified how these same men had a wrong spirit of service to the Church and did not stand fast for God and His ways within the Church. Such individuals reflected a variety of wrong thinking, practice, teaching, counseling, and service to God’s Church. That kind of spirit of neglect and/or rebellion reflects a spirit toward God that cannot be allowed to exist within the ministry.

Since some have been negligent in sending reports, they have either been reduced in their service within the ministry or have simply been removed from the ministry. The ministry needs to be aware of this, as well as the Church. Government, and the administration of God’s way of life, is a most basic characteristic that each member of the Body of Christ is to embrace and heartily live toward God, and most assuredly this applies to a minister. We are also now requiring that if both a husband and a wife are in the ministry that each one needs to send in a separate monthly report.

This is being written because some are still being negligent in sending in monthly reports and it needs to be understood that we are now WELL beyond any grace period that has been given too often to too many. It is for this basic reason that there will still be some who will be removed from the ministry if they do not follow through with this very simple request to respond as responsible servants to God’s Church. It needs to be taken seriously that we are in a most unique period of time in the measuring of the temple and God is moving the Church to be in the forefront of this process.

Announcement

It’s been a couple of weeks since Weinland’s last posting, comments left wondering when another would come out.

Then Plimsol commented on the previous post.

But wait – there’s an announcement!

Owing to pressure of work (in prison), he’s not doing any more posts for at least a month.

Interesting. Maybe he’s got bored and is giving up.

—– Here is False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s announcement ————-

Due to the work that goes into getting posts on this website and all the work for those that are involved with preparations for the fall feast season, there will be no more posts made to this site until after the Feast of Tabernacles.

———  End of Announcement ————–

I wonder exactly what preparations Ron is making from behind bars.  Probably writing all the sermons for his tame lackeys to read, after Laura and her band of merry women rewrite them.

For reference, the holy day season is later this year with the Last Great Day on October 16.  So we’ll have to wait until the second half of October for “Measuring the Temple – Part 5″.

Demonic Influence

Ron put up a post today.  Republished here so all you demons can leave comments.

————— False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s post ——————————-

This subject is being sent out as a post (although this is not the one that I referred to in the last post that is currently being worked upon), and it will be put on the FAQ of the Church website, since there is an obvious increase in such activity.

As we continue to draw nearer to the end of this age, the spirit world of Satan and the demons is increasingly becoming stirred up. This is now beginning to become more manifest around the environs of the Church, as these beings try to strike out at God’s people in any way they can. Since they have very little ability to attack us more directly, depending upon our own relationship with God, they tend to strike out at others, who in turn might themselves be able to distract, cause confusion, suffering, and hurt in our lives.

Although this has been happening at sporadic times and places over the past few years, it seems to be on the increase at this time, and people need to be informed of steps they should take in such instances. These perverted beings are increasingly seeking to highly influence and even partially or fully possess someone who might be closer to us in a relationship or a work environment.

First, for anyone who is seeking and applying themselves to live by God’s way of life, there is nothing to fear in any way from these beings. Their influence is geared to harass and works at getting one’s attention and mind preoccupied with distractions by causing one to begin to elevate these to levels of greater importance than what they should be, thus side-tracking a person’s focus and close relationship to God, the Church, and the work that is before us.

Certainly, there are basic things one can do when such influence begins to encroach upon one’s life. A person should seek to not become side-tracked spiritually by focusing too much upon them, but to instead become even more fully focused upon seeking God first through working to draw ever closer to Him. These beings thrive on attention and recognition. The best thing is that they are ignored, as they have no importance in our lives. Too often, people can begin to make such influence around them a “big thing” and it begins to consume their lives, as they not only give them too much attention, but talk to others about these private matters. Certainly, it is fine to contact a minister to seek guidance, but other than that, they are to be strictly ignored and given no attention at all. This is similar to why one should give no attention to blogs and other communications that are against you or others in God’s Church.

A primary tool God has given us to sharpen our focus and build a stronger spiritual relationship with Him is through fasting. The reality is that a perverted spirit world cannot stand God. They do not want to be too near where God is. The stronger God is in our life, the more such beings will flee from our presence. This is why I have also mentioned in times past that even something as small and basic as playing hymns aloud is highly agitating to them and they do not like such an environment.

One of the more difficult situations to address is if someone is confronted with a trial when a perverted spirit influence begins working through someone who is close to them. It is good and proper to pray and fast for one’s own protection as well seeking intervention from God to give help to such an individual who is under such a foul spirit attack and influence. God seeks to protect those who look to Him. However, God may not intervene to always rebuke such demonic beings from having strong influence in other people’s lives. This is generally because such individuals themselves are yielding to such influence in their life due to personal sins and especially due to hatred or jealousies they harbor toward God’s Church, God’s people, and/or you. In such a case, you will know quickly if God intervenes to rebuke and if He does not. Then if not, you yourself will have decisions and choices you must make. You may be confronted with having to decide if such influence and the individual being influenced has begun to move your focus away from God and His Church and whether you must separate yourself farther from such influence and/or individual (relationship).

The reality is that if God does not speedily intervene in such matters then you must decide if you will flee (by whatever means necessary) such an environment. You cannot “save” what God has not chosen to save at this time. Obviously, and ultimately, the choice of such a matter is yours and yours alone to make.

Measuring the Temple Part 4

Seems the measuring of the temple will end in December of 2015, 16 months from now.  And at that time will begin the 1260 period that the Two Witnesses really-for-sure-this-time do their jobs.  Wonder how Ron will do his witnessing at the beginning of that period.  Right now he is just a few days past half-way through his 36+ month sentence (after time off for good behavior) and due for release in February of 2016.  So about two months of witnessing to fellow inmates.
During the first half of serving his sentence, he lost many prominent members such as Terry Wrozek, Ralph Dowd, and even his own sister and mother.  Ron claims that the “cleansing” is mostly over, but comments left on this blog indicate that the cleansing continues.  Would be nice if the temple were “cleansed” of all members other than Ron, Laura, Audra, and Jeremy by the time Ron is released to finish his third book.  Wonder whom he’ll get to edit it, since Larry Spivey has been cleansed.
—- False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s posting of 8/13 —————————–
The Church now has only 16 months remaining in the prophetic 42-month period for measuring the temple. As stated in the last post, this measuring process first involves a primary focus that is upon the ministry, which includes those who are to be cast out and “not measured at all.” Thus far in this period, there are now 25 ministers who have been cast out of the court and given over to the gentiles.

As with the ministry, this same process has been at work within the overall Church, however, as a comparative percentage, there are far fewer members who have been cast from the court. This is a time to be sobered! God has primarily worked to remove those who are in the ministry, who have not been serving Him in spirit and in truth. The ministry, because of their very ordination, can cause greater harm to the Body, and therefore, they have a higher accountability and judgment upon them.

In the time remaining within this prophetic period, God will continue working within the entire Church, which still includes the ministry, to bring to light those who choose to refuse to fully worship Him in spirit and in truth. Although this process has been working first and foremost within the ministry during the first two years of this period, God has begun to more fully manifest others who have been lingering in the area of the court, or becoming lukewarm in the temple, who are to be removed and/or chastened for doing so. Yet it needs to be mentioned again that the equivalent percentage this is happening to, within the overall church, compared to what has been revealed within the ministry is far, far less, and even when some are exposed, God is granting them to receive more mercy and grace through being chastened and thereby giving them the opportunity to repent, rather than being removed from the temple. If chastening does not bring swift repentance and change, then they too will be removed from the temple and cast beyond the court and directly to the gentiles.

Before a final “great work” is to begin, that work being accomplished during the final 1260 days, the Church is first (now) to receive a final cleansing as well as a final refining. This refining is a process for being prepared and fitted for each person’s participation in that work. There truly is good news in the midst of all this, as once the measuring of the temple is complete, from that point forward, very few will be lost during the rest of the way to Christ’s coming – and potentially none at all!

Being Measured
These verses in Revelation are indeed about a final refining and preparation for participation in the great work that is to occur before Christ’s coming. At this point, it is important to quote a paragraph from the last post.

“The structure of the Church (the temple) that will continue on is being readied – prepared – to fulfill a calling of participating in that final great work. In order to accomplish that work in a more powerful and profound manner, at the end of the age of man’s self-rule, the Church must be more fully yielded to God in unity and purpose. This is so God can more fully ‘dwell in’ His Church to accomplish that great work.”

All should be able to see the importance and need to fully remove from the environs of the Body of Christ that which is not part of that Body in spirit and truth. As Paul wrote to the Corinthians, “A little leaven leavens the whole lump.” So God is blessing His Church by removing such individuals who are not repenting of leaven and yet remain in the court – in the environs of the Church. God is also chastening those in the temple who have let down spiritually and have become lukewarm and who are in danger of being cast beyond the court. God is leaving little confusion as to what is truly His by removing much leaven and thereby making the Body much stronger.

But what does “being measured” fully entail? This is all about “taking the measurements of something,” or in this case, “someone.” This is about individuals who are in the temple. However, it needs to be understood that God and Christ do the “measuring,” and then they reveal to the Church what it must know in order to properly address what is necessary to help refine, correct, alter (work to change or transform), strengthen, and finish what is being built (constructed).

The example of a building process that is involved in construction is a helpful aid to assist in better grasping the ongoing building of a spiritual temple. For the temple, great precision must be used in preparing every piece as it is worked with and measured closely during the construction process so that it will fit perfectly into place for what its purpose and design are to accomplish. Such an example like this is good and we relate well to it, but in today’s world of technology, another good example of “this process” could be described in the functioning and performance of a machine. This is especially true in the example that can be used in this modern age of agriculture of a tractor or harvesting combine. This too can aid someone to get a clearer idea of this process we are addressing.

Such machines have many functioning and precision parts that must fit perfectly into place and work in harmony together as the operator directs it in order to accomplish his purpose for its use. A building that is constructed is stationary; however, a machine has active working parts that must function in total harmony to perform its work. These simplified analogies can assist in gaining a somewhat better perspective of a far more complex and awesome process of how God works with us in our lives to “live in” and through us to accomplish an important phase of His plan that He is working out in order to grant great salvation to this world at the coming of His Son.

This is what the purpose of measuring the temple is all about. God is preparing us for a specific task (work) that is ahead for us – that He will accomplish through us. We must be measured and fitted for that work so that we function more fully in unity and harmony together to accomplish God’s greater purpose. The ability to be measured and fitted for those working parts is largely dependent upon each person’s desire to be of such service to God, along with the willingness to yield to God’s molding, design, and purpose.

This is why those who are not yielding to God “in” the temple, but remain outside “in the court,” cannot be part of this construction and the work that is ahead. Such cannot work together in harmony and unity, and they do not follow the direction that comes from God and Christ through the Church.

God’s Purpose
The Church is quite familiar with many scriptures that are related to this process, but have not seen them fully in this light about the process and purpose for measuring the temple. These verses shed much light upon what God is perfecting through the measuring He and His Son are doing. It would be good to examine some of these.

“From whom (from Christ) the whole body is fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplies, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, which makes increase (growth) of the body unto the edifying of itself in love” (Eph. 4:16).

The expression “fitly joined together” is a single Greek word formed from other Greek words. Without going into great detail, although it is fascinating what these fully express, the thrust of the meaning can be summed up as “a means to walk in completeness,” as the result of the “ability of the body to articulate” what must be “set forth or communicated.” Indeed, God desires that we walk together as a single body, in completeness, with an ability to clearly live, reflect, and even speak in unity of that which God is preparing us to accomplish in His final great work that is to be completed before Christ’s coming.

Another interesting word in this verse is the word “compacted.” It too is formed from the Greek word for completeness with special emphasis on the process of “driving or fitting” something into place to create (make, produce) “unity.”

Another verse that incorporates some of this same meaning is in 1 Corinthians.

“Now I call upon you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (Paul declares that he is stating this by Christ’s authority), that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment” (1 Cor. 1:10).

Indeed, God’s purpose for measuring the temple is so that His Church functions in stronger unity and purpose to support and uphold the truths He has given it, especially in the fulfillment of events that must come to pass before His Son is established as King. We are to live, reflect, and speak this word (logos from God) in harmony in God’s purpose and the work He will do through His two witnesses. This also has much to do with those things that were written in 2008 – God’s Final Witness that reveal God’s purpose and end-time judgment that leads to His Son and His government being established once all opposition from world governments and religions are made impotent and brought to nothing.

Then there is a verse that warns against those who turn away from upholding Christ, who become puffed-up in self-reliance and pride about “their understanding” of what they “see” as truth. This verse then focuses on the process that all should be yielding to concerning what God and Christ are working to accomplish within the Church.

“And not holding (upholding, supporting, being loyal to, keeping) the Head (Jesus Christ, by what he has given the Church), from which all the body by joints and bands (as ligaments that help with control and movement) having nourishment ministered (spiritually from God), and ‘knit together’ (same Gk. word translated in Eph. 4:16 as ‘compacted’), increases (makes increase and growth) with the increase of (from) God” (Col. 2:19).

The result is that God is in control of how He measures, molds and fashions, fits together, and builds His temple. This process is the very result of what we are to experience in a magnified way throughout this 42-month period.

Yielding to the Process
It has already been mentioned in passing that for the measuring and fitting that God is doing, we always have the choice as to whether or not we will continue to yield to the process. It comes down to how much value we place on the end product that will be produced in our lives if we continue to submit to God’s molding and fashioning.

Some few let pride get in the way as they begin to feel that they are not treated fairly, that correction they have been given is not justified, that others are being shown favoritism above them, that they deserve something better than what they have, etc. As I was writing this, I could not help but think that each one of these selfish thoughts (thinking) is exactly what Satan has always believed toward God. It is the same spirit. Is it any wonder that we must go through many kinds of trials, tests, and refining in order to get rid of such an evil spirit ,as much as we possibly can, while in this human flesh?

When we yield to God, instead of trying to work out things our way, we are to exercise trust and faith in God that He truly knows what is the very best way for our life to be changed and transformed in order to create what is best and most fulfilling for us. No one can be like the clay that tries to tell the potter he should make them into something else or to make them in some other “better” way. Do you truly believe God knows what is best and that He knows exactly what it takes to transform and create Elohim in us?

So we are to yield to the direction God leads, to correction, to government, to instruction, to sermons, to posts, etc. This means we must right now focus more than ever on examining ourselves before God as we seek to know our true motives and intent of our heart so that we can repent more quickly of error and embrace more readily God’s judgment for our motives and actions.

We should now have a far better grasp of the “why” and of “what” it means to live in this prophetic period that has a magnified focus upon the measuring of the temple.

The next post for me, personally, is another exciting one to be (possibly) written, as it is to be direct, candid, corrective in nature, highly revealing for use as a powerful mirror, and for the deeper, far greater change and final refining transformation it can potentially produce. However, whether or not it is written, and to the depth and magnitude its impact can potentially have upon us, is dependent upon each of you in the Church. God is clearly showing me that whether or not it is even written, as well as its very content and depth of strength and revelation that it can potentially contain, is fully dependent upon each person’s petitions (prayers) that reveal such desire to receive what God can give to us. So my parting admonition and encouragement to you is that you pray for this next post in a zealous, fervent, and highly desirous manner.

Measuring the Temple Part 3

Less than 2 weeks since the last post, and False Prophet Ronald Weinland now has the 3rd in his series posted.

Ron explains the cleansing that’s going on in the temple: “These ex-ministers have indeed been turned over to becoming more fully corrupted and even to a shameful alliance with a spirit world that seeks to slander, mock, and belittle God’s people and the truth God has given”

————– Weinland’s posting ——————————-

God’s Church has been going through a process of being transformed “in thinking” regarding the need to have a more sound focus on the coming of Christ. Although at this time it is not yet being directed toward the world, the timing for the return of Jesus Christ has once again been proclaimed in the Church.

As a result of two previous experiences in the expectation of Christ’s coming, God has worked to refine, define, and more fully prepare His people for what is ahead. All this needs to be understood in the context of how this is related to what God’s Church first began to experience in late 2007. Although we have just reviewed some of this, it is good to be reminded, as it applies to how God has transformed the focus of our thinking in regard to His Son’s return.

In the first experience in the anticipation of Christ’s coming, the Church had a focus in late 2007 and on into the first half of 2008 that the return of Christ would be on the Feast of Trumpets in 2011. Then a few months later, God revealed that this was not correct, as the Messiah’s coming would be on a Pentecost (50th Truth), and not on a Feast of Trumpets. When this new truth was revealed to the Church near Pentecost of 2008, it became an important “test” and “revealer” of who God’s people were that were worshipping Him in spirit and in truth and of those who were not. However, we did not fully grasp that then.

This became a “test” on three defining fronts. The first (not a matter of numerical order), was that this was the first major area that forced God’s remnant Church to address within themselves – in their individual thinking – whether a true prophet of God could be in error in giving the Church the focus of 2011 for Christ’s coming. The way in which one would largely answer this would lie in their faith concerning the next two defining fronts.

This matter became a big test for a few, as it quickly brought into question whether I was a prophet, and it did so to the degree that these few showed more of their true inner self by becoming critical, angry, disgruntled, depressed, and/or even bitter. This even included a few within the ministry.

This in-itself proved to be a “revealer” of those who were seeking to worship God in spirit and in truth, and of those who had let down spiritually by becoming lifted up in pride, in self-reliance, and in spiritual superiority over others – even toward their teachers whom God had given them. There were others caught in the middle of all this on whom God had mercy and gave opportunity to repent.

Of those who had the stronger adverse responses, God did not forget! Many of these were judged that they would not be allowed to share in His ways and in fellowship all the way through to the return of His Son. Yet they would be allowed to continue for a while longer in the environs of the Church as a means of trying and testing others, but would become removed during the time of the actual “measuring of the temple.”

A second defining area in the response of some, in all that led up to the revelation of this 50th Truth, was in the measurement of their true faith in God’s government that He had established in His one and only true Church. For some who should have known better, this became a test, that in reality, revealed their lack of conviction of such truth.

This of course ties in with this being a test on a third front as to their true conviction and belief of the 49 Truths that had already been revealed prior to this. Of these truths, one truth powerfully separated God’s true Church from all others that were scattered. This concerned whether Jesus Christ had eternally existed, which all other scattered groups believed to be the case. Yet God revealed to His remnant Church that He alone was Yahweh Elohim, our El (God) who has eternally existed. This one truth alone is proof enough of where God is working amongst those who became scattered.

A Second Focus on Christ’s Coming
As previously shown, learning that Christ would not return on Trumpets but on a Pentecost, led, at that time around Pentecost of 2008, to the expectation of the return of Christ being moved ahead to Pentecost of 2012. This experience of faithfully “living out the anticipation” of this event, which did not occur, helped to transform the thinking of the Church to a far more balanced and sound approach to being more fully “prepared” for that actual event and the great work that precedes it.

As most in the Church were new and had no “experience” in events that preceded and then followed the Apostasy, the thinking and maturity of the Church needed to be refined and defined in order to be properly furnished and ready for the actual coming of Christ. The truth is that there was much to be learned about “motive” and “self” through this experience. Rather than having a truer, deeper, and more sound desire for Christ’s coming, too many actually saw this date of Pentecost 2012 as a means of escape from their personal struggles and present battles in life.

Then after “faithfully living” such a focus for that entire period of “God’s final witness” that led up to that Pentecost of 2012, the Church was once again brought to another moment in time that required each person to answer what they truly believed and where they actually stood. Through this process, God was more rapidly maturing, refining, and strengthening those who were His people – in true fellowship with Him. God was making His Church to stand. Most of the Church came to more deeply see and understand that we must struggle with our own human nature our entire physical life-time, and that living God’s way of life is always the only right and meaningful choice throughout such a life-time.

The fruit that was produced through this unique experience for the Church was a truer and stronger humility of spirit (the wearing of sackcloth), which is so essential in the battle against selfish human nature and the ugliness of pride.

Yet again, there were some who were not in true unity and fellowship with God. These two experiences in the anticipation of Christ’s return became “too much” for these individuals, and this actually revealed that they were not worshipping God in spirit and in truth. They did not believe many of the 57 Truths God had given His Church. Some of these simply drifted away while others became filled with certain attitudes or combinations of them, such as bitterness, anger, depression, and hatred, and thereby becoming slanderous, vindictive, and false accusers of members and the truths of God.

Although some were the same people, these individuals and those who had responded so poorly in the first experience of moving Christ’s return from Trumpets to Pentecost, began to be cleansed from any relationship or the appearance of such a relationship with God and His Church. This has been taking place since the Church entered this new period we are now in – the “measuring of the temple.”

In Spirit and In Truth
Through these two previous experiences in the anticipation of Christ’s coming, God indeed has been refining, defining, and preparing a faithful people for a great work that is yet ahead of them. The majority of the Church has been made to stand in unity of truth, in a vastly matured faith, and in a more powerful focus of purpose.

This now brings us back to the beginning of this series, Measuring the Temple, and those verses that speak of this time that we entered beginning on Pentecost of 2012.

“Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, ‘Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months’” (Rev. 11:1-2).

Although some aspects of these verses are not readily seen, God’s spirit conveys the true meaning of what is being spoken. The angel told John to rise up and measure the temple. We know that this is speaking of a specific period of time – a specific prophetic 42 months in which the Church (the temple) is to be measured.

Measuring the temple is nothing new for God’s Church, as this has been a continuing necessity since the Church began, but this is now speaking of a far more intense and thorough measuring and focus for this specific period of time. The reason for this is due to where we now are in God’s plan. We are rapidly closing in on a final “great work” that God will do just before His Son is sent back to reign as the Messiah, and before that happens, the temple is to be thoroughly measured.

The structure of the Church (the temple) that will continue on is being readied – prepared – to fulfill a calling of participating in that final great work. In order to accomplish that work in a more powerful and profound manner, at the end of the age of man’s self-rule, the Church must be more fully yielded to God in unity and purpose. This is so God can more fully “dwell in” His Church to accomplish that great work.

This instruction given by the angel to measure the temple is about measuring the entire Church. Although it is about everyone within the environs of the Church, the first focus is upon the ministry being measured or removed from the temple. This is the intent for why the “altar” is mentioned, as this reveals a focus that is about those who are first and foremost recognized by their “service” at the altar – the ministry.

Yet all in the Church are partakers of the altar. So it is made clear by the next phrase in the instruction from the angel that the measuring of the temple is about everyone in the Church – those who worship “in” the temple. This period is an intense time of measuring the Church – of measuring all who seek to worship God in spirit and in truth, for there is no other way to truly worship God.

Those who are not truly seeking to worship God in spirit and truth are not to be measured at all. Instead, they are to be clearly removed from any such false appearance of doing so. Through a great variety of means, God is bringing such false worshippers to light and revealing that they have become non-believers – given over to the gentiles. Not only this, but the manner in which God reveals such individuals also opens them up to strong spirit forces that work to turn them into active adversaries of God’s Church. Most of these become part of that which “tread(s) the holy city (the Church) underfoot for forty-two months.”

Because of the actions of such individuals who so betray God and Christ during a time that has followed the Apostasy, when God has poured out more truth and grace upon His people than at any other time, these people have been given strong judgment. They are to bear a shame of being opened up to a spirit world that works to make them active adversaries of God’s Church – of members, the leadership, and the truths of God. During this period, these are tormented in mind and thinking about the Church, just as the demonic world is becoming more tormented by what God is doing through His Church, and because they know they have a very short time remaining.

The Ministry
“But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the gentiles” (Rev. 11:2). This first sentence in verse 2 is instruction that a clear delineation is to be made with those who are not worshipping “in” the temple – those not worshipping God in spirit and in truth. Instead, they are standing around the environs of the Church – in the court – as though they are in true fellowship with those who are worshipping in the temple.

God has been removing such false worshippers, with a primary focus being first and foremost upon the ministry. Those who are ordained to be faithful servants of God to His people carry a strong measure of responsibility in “their example alone” that should always reflect that they stand fast, are supportive, and encouraging in unity and truth. When they “do not serve” in these right actions, great harm is easily inflicted upon others.

Since this period for measuring the temple began, it is dumbfounding how much of the ministry has been visibly experiencing this “measuring” and how many have been rejected in measurement – cast over to the gentiles.

Since Pentecost of 2012, 24 ministers have been cast out of the environs of the Church. Of these, one was an evangelist, 4 were sr. elders, 10 were elders, and 9 were associate elders. These are no longer in the false position of giving the appearance of worshipping “in” the temple, but have been cast out with the gentiles – those who are trampling the Church underfoot for 42 months.

Through Paul, God states, “Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the spirit of God dwells in you? If any man defiles (Gk. – corrupts, makes waste of, causes ruin to) the temple of God, him shall God destroy (same Gk. word for corrupt, to cause ruin); for the temple of God is holy, which temple you are” (1 Cor. 3:16-17).

Focusing first upon the ministry, if anyone ceases to worship “in” the temple in spirit and in truth, and instead, begins to make waste of it and cause ruin in it, God will remove such individuals and give them over to themselves, being wasted and ruined – to become even more fully corrupted.

These ex-ministers have indeed been turned over to becoming more fully corrupted and even to a shameful alliance with a spirit world that seeks to slander, mock, and belittle God’s people and the truth God has given – who participate in helping to trample the Church underfoot. These have turned away from truths God has given His Church since the Apostasy and even from truths that existed prior to that.

Some have gone back to a doctrine of Christ having existed for all eternity; Petra is a physical place of safety; there was no Apostasy or man of sin revealed by God; a belief of a 14th/15th Passover (where it begins to be observed toward the close of the 14th and then after sundown on into the 15th). If they believe any truth God has revealed to His Church since the Apostasy (Truths 22 through 57), then they are in horrible spiritual conflict and torment because there is only one place that teaches these truths. So God has given them over to greater spiritual ruin and corruption.

To no longer be able to be measured within the temple is an incredible shame and waste. Many of these had been awakened spiritually after the Apostasy, and now for a second time have turned from God. This is far worse than those who fell asleep and were cast out of God’s presence at the time of the Apostasy. Not only that, but since that time, God gave an additional 36 truths to His Church and these individuals have turned their backs on what God revealed.

So the focus is one that is first and foremost upon the ministry, for either not being measured at all (the court outside the temple) or of being amongst all others within the Church who are being measured. As of now, there are 2 elders and 9 associate elders that no longer serve in the ministry. There are also 3 elders who now serve as associate elders. All are still among the others within the Church who are seeking to worship God in spirit and in truth.

Within this “measuring process” there are numerous reasons for such changes being made. This needs to be explained more fully, as “everyone” in the Church is being measured and this in-itself will work to produce change and greater growth. Being measured and growing through this process is not a negative factor, but a positive one. So before jumping to conclusions or passing misguided judgment upon others, it is wise to step back, wait, and then seek to learn from Pt. 4 of this series that will follow.

Measuring the Temple Part 2

Looks like I prophesied Ron’s next date for the return of Christ, Pentecost of 2019.  Although it looks like he’s leaving some wiggle room on that — just in case, ya know, if it doesn’t happen this time,

—————  False Prophet Ronald Weinland’s Post  ————–

On a purely personal, physical level, I would rather not proclaim another date of Christ’s literal return as King of kings: however, as a prophet and apostle, I would be highly amiss if I failed to declare that time, if I believed I knew it. On a spiritual level, I am incredibly excited and inspired by additional understanding God is now giving concerning this timing and I am, therefore, deeply moved to have the opportunity to share it with you.

God has shown that if someone has been made a watchman and has been given to see that devastation is coming, then they are to warn others. On the other hand, God also states that the world will not listen to any warning, as they have not done so now for 6,000 years. This has much to do with why the book 2008 – God’s Final Witness was written. It is written in such a manner to help people understand what is taking place after end-time events and the destruction they bring begin. It is because only then, when these events start to take place, will they begin to consider what is stated in the book and possibly begin acting upon it.

The present reality is that of approximately four million people exposed to the book, absolutely no one took heed except for a very, very few whom God was calling.

There are many who have mocked and ridiculed me and the Church for believing in two previous dates for Christ’s coming. It is important to consider those dates before proceeding into what God is now revealing. Before doing so, it should first be noted that such people who ridicule are motivated by the primary intent of finding fault and seeking to discredit the Church and its teachings. For those who seek the truth, there are ample answers God has given to correct, clarify, inspire, and lead into deeper understanding. Yet even then, God reveals such things in His own timing, for His own purpose. When God does give answers, we in God’s Church respond by making decisions based on what we know to that moment in time, according to that present truth.

Setting Dates
Although much of this has been partially covered in recent times, understanding the process for the setting of such dates is highly worthy of review, as it is so very important to what God has been working to perform among His people.

The first date we believed Christ would return was on Trumpets of 2011. This was our focus by the latter part of 2007. This date in 2011 was believed to be Christ’s coming because of our understanding that the length of time the two witnesses will witness is 1260 days. Yet that specific period we were going to experience was not what we thought it was going to be. Instead, this was a time that God was establishing a “witness” and He was establishing the two witnesses. Yet this period was not about the “work” the two witnesses will do in that period of the 1260 days mentioned in Revelation 11, which will then quickly lead up to Christ’s actual coming, although we thought that this was that time then.

The figuring of the timing to Christ’s return was based on the title that God inspired the book to be given 2008 – God’s Final Witness. God had clearly revealed that He would begin an important phase of His work for the end-time that was to begin in 2008, and it was very much focused upon the work of His two witnesses: but at that time we did not know that there were two periods that would have a type of duality for fulfilling the 1260 days concerning His two witnesses – one for establishing them as such and one for doing the actual work mentioned in Revelation 11.

So during the latter part of 2007, it was concluded that if 2008 was to be the beginning of a “final witness,” which we thought meant the time when the “work” of the two witnesses would be accomplished, then we had to incorporate such knowledge into the belief we had at that time that Christ would actually return on a Feast of Trumpets. So if this period was to begin in 2008, then the completion of it would have to be at Trumpets in 2011.

We believed this date for 2011 to be true for about eight months until God clarified and revealed a “new truth.” That new truth – the 50th Truth – was that Christ was not going to return on a Trumpets, but on a Pentecost. At this point, it would be good to quote a paragraph from a May 2013 post entitled, “Extraordinary 4 ½ Years – Pt. 1,” where this subject was being addressed and I had referred to the sermon that was given about this change in understanding in mid-2008.

“…So in that sermon, God revealed that Christ was not going to return on a Feast of Trumpets, but on a Pentecost. This timing was critical to God’s plan concerning the fulfillment of the wave loaves being offered up before God that pictured His acceptance of the 144,000. This was of the same importance as the acceptance of the wave sheaf during the Days of Unleavened Bread that Jesus Christ fulfilled. We then changed the dates of our previous understanding of timing as soon as God revealed the truth of this matter of Christ returning on a Pentecost. As a result of this understanding, the beginning of the 3 ½ years of witness was pushed back by nearly 8 months, to the end, rather than at the beginning, of 2008.”

As we knew that this was to begin in 2008 and end on a Pentecost, this calculated out to be the Pentecost of 2012. This in itself proved to be incredibly profound and far, far beyond mere coincidence, as it turned out that by backing away from Pentecost of 2012, it was exactly 1335 days from the Feast of Trumpets of 2008. The probability of such an exact count is highly rare in actual occurrence within any grouping of calendar years. The meaning contained in this is nearly beyond words that can be expressed because of how incredibly awesome this is. The Feast of Trumpets announces the coming of the King of kings, and Pentecost reveals his actual coming with the 144,000 to reign on this earth.

So yes, I have believed and proclaimed two previous dates for Christ’s return and have sought to warn and prepare others due to such belief. In all practical reality, this doesn’t really matter that much as far as the world or the Church that was scattered is concerned, as they do not believe the message from 2008 – God’s Final Witness anyway, or that this is God’s true Church and that I am His apostle and prophet for this end-time. It does, however, matter concerning the Church, for all of this has been about the Church being tried, tested, cleansed, refined, and prepared for what was and still is ahead.

As far as the world and the Church that was scattered is concerned, they will not begin to listen, believe, or change until the events in 2008 – God’s Final Witness are well under way.

A Third Date
As God’s end-time apostle and prophet, I am now going to begin proclaiming a third date for the expected coming of Jesus Christ. At this time, this is obviously only for the Church. No one else will receive it yet, unless they are being called by God.
Does it matter that others do not believe now? No! But it does matter for God’s Church, as this has everything to do with following God wherever He leads His Church. It is for the learning, training, transforming, and greater growth of His people.

In God’s time, many in the world and the Church that has been scattered will begin to see, hear, fear, and change.

So what is this new date? It is necessary to properly set the stage for this, which concerns what God has revealed to me as a prophet. He has revealed that His purpose and design, beginning when the First Seal was opened on the day of the Apostasy (Dec. 17, 1994) to the coming of His Son to reign, contains “seven periods of 1260 days.”

The basis for establishing a third date is a matter of my function as an apostle, as I am utilizing all knowledge, clarification, and truth that God has given us to this moment in time. Since Pentecost of 2012, God has poured out upon us vast amounts of new, clarified, and needful knowledge, which has made it possible to teach and proclaim an incredibly beautiful, inspiring, and truly the clearest picture ever of what God has designed, purposed, and is now more fully bringing to pass concerning His Son, Jesus Christ, coming on Pentecost of 2019. The time from the Apostasy to the Messiah’s coming does contain 7 periods of 1260 days, plus some specific additional time that God has given as “signs” to accompany His design, revelation, and deep meaning in all that He is bringing to pass.

As a result of focusing on two previous dates, those in God’s Church have been mightily matured and strengthened through that experience, and we have consequently grown in greater wisdom and have been far more fully prepared for where we are now and where we are headed – far more than what we were before Pentecost of 2012. As a matter of faith and of seeing a clear, clarified, and completed picture of God’s purpose from the Apostasy to Christ’s return, I do not believe it is possible that this new date has any error or lack of understanding in its calculation (which will be addressed a little later). Having said that, if for any reason the timing were to go beyond this new date in 2019, then we can be certain that God will reveal much more to us in order to give us even greater understanding, just as He has in the past. If indeed this proved to be the case, we would simply continue moving forward, following Him wherever He leads His Church.

Leading Up to Pentecost 2012
There is an awesome “design” that is contained in all that God has fulfilled from the time of the Apostasy up to Pentecost of 2012. God’s hand is clearly in His design to accomplish His purpose and all this has been manifested through numerous numerical fulfillments, with many that corresponded to exacting dates that have led up to Pentecost 2012. The mathematical probability of all these occurring as often and as exact as they have is evidence in itself of that which is far, far beyond coincidence, and so much so, that it reveals profound design and fulfillment that could only be mastered by God alone!

In all these numerical fulfillments and their corresponding dates up to this point in time, there is one more that we have not seen or known until now. Before addressing that additional account, some of the most important of all these will be listed in a simplified manner, as will all the rest when we come to them.

The beginning of all this is based upon the truth that the Apostasy occurred when the First Seal of Revelation was opened. That was the day that signified (was a sign) to the Church that a countdown had begun to the return of Christ.

1) From the Apostasy on December 17, 1994, the man of sin, the son of perdition, Joseph W. Tkach, Sr., died exactly “280 days” after he initiated it – to the hour – which signified “God’s Judgment” upon him.

This is 40 weeks (a prophetic number for judgment) times 7 (a number signifying “completeness” in God’s work).

2) From the Apostasy up to Pentecost of 1998, the first prophetic cycle of 1260 days was fulfilled.

God’s Church understands that this was the Pentecost when God fully reestablished His Church and His government in it, after it had been scattered because of the Apostasy and was then protected from Satan during that exact time period.

3) From the Apostasy up to Pentecost 2012 there are 6,370 days. This consists of three prophetic numerical combinations of 7 x 70 x 13.

The number “7” signifying “completeness.”
The prophetic number “70” signifying “Christ’s coming.”
The prophetic number “13” signifying Satan’s way that is associated with “apostasy and rebellion.”

By Pentecost of 2012, Satan’s final attempt to “Apostasy and rebellion” (13) to thwart God’s purpose had failed, as God had now “completed” (7) the way for “His Son to return” (70) and reign with the 144,000 in His Kingdom because all of these had now become sealed.

4) The final period for the completion of the sealing of the 144,000 was from Trumpets of 2008 (Sept. 30) to Pentecost of 2012 (May 27). This was the fulfillment of the “1335-day” prophecy of Daniel 12 that resulted in those few yet remaining to be sealed in order to complete the total for all 144,000 who will return with Christ at His coming.

Two New Phases Revealed
Just with these events covered so far, the mathematical probabilities for their occurrences to have happened is staggering, as these periods of time coincide with specific dates that parallel the very holy days that reveal the meaning for their fulfillment in God’s plan. It is awesomely inspiring to “see” that only God could coordinate and bring to pass such phenomenal occurrences.

There are two phases of God’s work in the preparation of His Son’s coming. The “first phase” fully paved “the way” for his coming, since it concerned the 144,000 who must return and reign with him in God’s government over the earth. The full count of the 144,000 was completed by Pentecost 2012, thus making it possible for him to now return in God’s Kingdom. This first phase began when the First Seal was opened and then continued up to the Pentecost of 2012 (6,370 days).

The “second phase” began on Pentecost 2012 and it will become complete by Pentecost 2019. This phase includes the final preparation, measuring, cleansing, and refining of God’s Church that makes it ready for the final work of the Church and two witnesses. This second phase leads into the literal return of Christ.

Additional Fulfillment of the “First Phase”
An additional fulfillment in the first phase of God’s plan has now been revealed. It has been previously stated that there are seven periods of “1260 days” within the entire time from the Apostasy up to Christ’s actual coming. God had already revealed two of these 1260-day time cycles – the first and the last – during the first phase.

We know the first cycle of 1260 days that went from the Apostasy up to Pentecost 1998. We know the last period in this first phase is the fifth cycle (out of 7) of 1260 days. That is when (on Dec. 14, 2008) the First Trumpet sounded and when God began to establish His two witnesses. This period then continued up to Pentecost of 2012.

God has not specifically revealed any meaningful significance to the three other periods of 1260 days in the first phase. He has only revealed the “length” of that entire time. As it has already been pointed out, only the first and last (5th) cycles within this first phase have specific purpose and meaning. But from the date of the Apostasy to Pentecost 2012 there are 6,300 days (5 time cycles of 1260) plus 70. What about the remaining 70 days? The answer is what brings us to the additional fulfillment that is now being given.

5) The first phase of God’s work following the Apostasy covers 6,370 days, which includes a total of five equivalent periods of 1260 days that equals 6,300 days, with a remainder of 70 days.

The prophetic number for “70” signifies “Christ’s coming,” and it is God’s first numerical sign for that coming (which is in the first phase of His work).

This fifth numerical fulfillment is deeply meaningful. It has already been covered that the Apostasy was a “sign” to God’s Church of Christ’s coming and that a countdown to that moment had begun. However, this was only a sign that Christ’s coming was now imminent, but the timing was not yet known.

As an apostle, I fully believe God has now revealed that complete timing. We are now able to look back and learn from what God has fulfilled, as He has given us additional numerical signs of His work. Is the addition of 70 days that led from the Apostasy up to Pentecost 2012 a coincidence or matter of chance? Hardly!

After the Apostasy, God and Christ began working to reestablish a remnant of the Church from the scattering. God began to complete the final preparing, molding, and fashioning of the few who were yet to be made ready, sealed, and thereby become the last of those to be added to complete a total count of 144,000 sealed throughout the span of 6,000 years of mankind. The “way” for Christ’s coming (70) could not occur until this full number of firstfruits of God’s ruling Kingdom had been sealed.

Second Phase
We have thoroughly covered the first phase of God’s work in the preparation for His Son’s coming rule, which contains five numerical fulfillments of astounding proportions. The sixth fulfillment is during this second and final phase of God’s work to establish His Son in His Kingdom that is to reign on earth.

As this series began, we were shown that we are currently in a very specific time period of the 42 months mentioned in Revelation 11 that concerns the measuring of the Temple of God, which will be covered in greater depth in the next post.

These 42 months are equivalent to 1260 days. It is interesting to note that this is in the sixth cycle. This sixth cycle corresponds to a “final preparation” that leads into the seventh and last cycle of 1260 days. For the Church of God–Preparing for the Kingdom of God, this is related in meaning to the sixth day of “preparation” for the Sabbath. However, we are undergoing a final preparation in order to complete God’s work during the seventh cycle (7 for completeness) in our work to be accomplished in making the way for Christ’s return to reign over the earth.

This period of 42 months will be followed by the seventh and last cycle of 1260 days when God’s two witnesses will accomplish their work of Revelation 11. That work is about a humbling power that will work upon mankind to begin destroying the arrogance, haughtiness, and deep pride of mankind. This power to humble will be spearheaded by those who have become attired in sackcloth.

Before proceeding into addressing the remaining two numerical fulfillments to be covered in this post, it is necessary to understand more of what is stated, and of that which is not stated, about the two witnesses. It is stated that they have a period of 1260 days to fulfill their work. It does not say that this period ends at Christ’s coming, nor 3½ days prior, although we have believed the latter.

It is important to keep straight what it does say. Their work of fulfilling their commission does last 1260 days. It does not say they will be put to death right when that is over. The truth is that several weeks can pass after their work is complete before they are killed, which it states will be 3½ days prior to Christ’s coming. Their work may well be accomplished at a period several weeks prior to his coming due to the horrific conditions that exist on earth by that time.

Now, the last two numerical fulfillments will be explained.

6) Beginning with Pentecost 2012, the combined period of 42 months along with the final seventh cycle of 1260 days ends during the Days of Unleavened Bread in 2019. Not only that, but more importantly, it ends on the day of the “wave-sheaf offering” from when the count for Pentecost begins.

Again, the mathematical probability of this alone, along with the absolute impossibility of the combined previous 5 numerical fulfillments all working together in harmony and unison of purpose as they do, giving such exacting times and dates, simply magnifies the glory and power of God to purpose, design, and fulfill such a thing.

7) The time from Pentecost 2012 to the wave-sheaf offering in 2019 is 2,520 days (1260 plus 1260). There are 2,570 days from Pentecost 2012 to the Day of Pentecost in 2019. This leaves exactly “50 days” that God has established as a final numerical sign of His work to establish His Son as King of kings.

We obviously understand the significance of these 50 days that lead up to the Day of Pentecost from the time of the wave-sheaf offering. This ties God’s plan together in a profound way, as it entails the receiving of Christ as the wave-sheaf and the 144,000 who fulfill the wave-loaves to be received by God. These then are unified as all the firstfruits of God’s Kingdom that will then begin to reign in God’s government over the earth.

It is an incredible coincidence where the “50th Truth” has led us!
