From The Bible Project that explores the Bible visually.
This end-time Work of the Watchman has a well documented history and tradition. It began with my Grandfather, some 70 years ago. All involved or familiar with this Work know of his lifelong contribution; and of the long and productive Work of his son, my Dad; Garner Ted Armstrong.
Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong gained an understanding of Bible prophecy through reading, study and divine revelation back before many of those active in this phase of the Work were born. He had the understanding necessary to look into the Bible, and into the future, compare those prophecies with world events extant at the time and see the trends which would lead to an eventual . Beginning in the early 1950s his son, my Dad, Garner Ted Armstrong began to take an active role in writing and broadcasting that message of witness and warning. Consider the strong message and accurate prophetic prediction written by Mr. Herbert W. in 1957. It was an article which recognized that Eastern European countries under the control of the USSR were already beginning to adopt policies which were outside the Communist dogma, policies which would pave the way for them to eventually leave the Soviet orbit and join in a coming United Europe. Early in the article, he quoted some rather humorous definitions of Communism, Fascism, Democracy, “New Dealism,” Capitalism and Theocracy.
“Communism: You have two cows. The government takes both and sells you the milk.
“Fascism: You have two cows. The government takes both, feeds the milk to the army, and shoots you.
“Democracy: You have two cows. The government buys one and sells it to an enemy on credit.
“New Dealism: You have two cows. The government buys both, shoots one, milks the other, and throws the milk away. “Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.
“Theocracy: You have two cows. You milk them both, sell the milk, pay God His tithe, keep the other nine tenths and God gives you a bull.”
Nobody ever accused Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong of having no sense of humor! But his article went on to highlight serious issues of that era, and into the frightening scenario which the United States will ultimately face according to Bible prophecy. Mind you, the year was 1957! The following quote appears under the subhead, “Germany is Risen Again!”
“The factor is this: Germany is once again a major world power- and we don’t know it!
“While we innocently suppose the Russians are as mighty and dangerous as their words of bluff, we remain sound asleep to the FACT that Germany is fast emerging as a far GREATER power than Russia.Those nasty Germans have been the bane of the Armstrong family for 80 some years now. From Hitler being alive in South America to invading German armies who set up concentration camps and hang Church of God members up on meat hooks, finding themselves being toss into crematorium ovens or taken as slaves to Europe where they will serve in the homes of the Germans as a final humiliation. For 80 some years now those prophecies have never come to pass.
Never fear though, Mark's Grandfather had travelled to Germany and knew for a fact that they are rebuilding their empire.
“Already Germany, in actual resources and sustained industrial power, has actually passed Great Britain, believe it or not! Twice in the past three years I have visited and toured over Germany. Never have I seen such dynamic energy for WORK- for the work of production- of restoring a whipped, beaten, depleted Germany to the pinnacle where the Germans can shout triumphantly, Deutschland UberAlles!
“Our people have forsaken GOD! And, for our own good, to bring us to our senses, GOD IS BEGINNING TO PUNISH! …While we PROFESS to be the leading `Christian’ countries, we (the U.S. and Britain) have actually turned God’s Holy Bible upside down-we have rejected the true Gospel of Jesus Christ, as Christ Himself delivered and proclaimed it-we have set up PAGAN sun worshiping practices and we call them `Christian’ festivals-we have adopted false and hellish doctrines that make God’s ways and His laws appear to be evil, and make evil appear to be righteousness!”
! Grandpa Armstrong sure knew how to make the words leap off the page!Mark goes on to quote his dad and his utterances as prophetic truth. It is a rather long article with Mark adding a few comments here and there as he ends with this:
If you’ve been a reader or a listener of much that my Dad, Garner Ted Armstrong wrote and said, you’ve already got a very good idea how all of this will turn out. He predicted a coming “New World Order,” one in which, sadly, the United States of America will not fare well. Talk about patriotism! He loved this country deeply. Was proud to have served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War, and he knew World War II inside out. Occasionally he’d run into somebody else well versed in the many facets of the second World War, and the conversation would be incredible.
He knew his history and his geography backward and forward. And he knew his Bible even better. He wrote and spoke volumes at every juncture of world events, every twist and turn since the early 1950s, describing what was transpiring and where it was leading. He was acutely aware of every aspect of this continuing evolution of the European Union. And he looked at history and at Bible prophecy as his guide to understanding it all. And he shared that with all of us.
We may be lulled into a sense of security for now. But moves are underway which will affect our role in the Middle East ultimately, our economy, and yes, our sovereignty. We will continue to draw attention toward these relatively unrecognized trends with the perspective Garner Ted Armstrong, and Herbert W. Armstrong before him, brought to so many. You may request publications and tapes (free of charge) by calling the offices of the Garner Ted Armstrong Evangelistic Association.
The work of witness and warning will continue via radio, television, the Internet, and the printed page as long as God provides the strength and support. Thank you for the role you play in the fulfillment of the great commission!
The telling comment at the end is about how the ministry of the church and leaders covered up for this guy. The Church of God has had a long record of covering up for rapists, pedophiles, stalkers and abusers of the brethren. The COG's love to mock the pedophile abuse going on in the Catholic church and yet the COG is filled with serial abusers all protected by leaders and fellow ministers.
Shields is also apparently part of the "sacred names" groups in the COG. It is more important to call Jesus and God by a certain proper name than it is to maintain moral integrity.
Phillip Shields' website asks for your tithes and donations, so that he can continue in the capacity of a minister. Why would anyone ask for tithes unless they thought they were a minister of God?
From his web page, Light on a Rock, "Contact Light on the Rock Outreach Foundation:
"5622 Belle Terre Drive
Leesburg, Florida 34748-7887 USA
We deeply appreciate your gifts, tithes and offerings."The Journal: News of the Churches of God, previously had run an ad asking for assistance in an investigation into possible crimes committed by Shields.
His website address is http://lightontherock.org/contact-us.html
From The Journal, this ad, which was extremely accurate in reporting the number of victims Mr. Shields actually did his thing with, still appears on the Internet
Help needed with investigation: An investigation is being conducted by some former members of the Worldwide Church of God concerning possible crimes committed by Mr. Phillip Shields when he was in the ministry of that church. Allegations against Mr. Shields include numerous instances of sexual assault against married women and teenage girls and molestation of girls as young as nine years old. To date twenty-four probable victims have been identified. Six of them have furnished written statements for the preliminary report, which also includes statements by five other former ministers of the WCG concerning Mr. Shields' alleged predatory activities. The report has been furnished to church and legal authorities where appropriate. Mr. Shields currently lives in Vancouver, WA, where he is the host for the Church of the Great God, which meets in Portland, OR. Between 1977 and 1994 he was assigned to churches in Edmonton; Cornwall, NY; Plattsburgh, NY; New Brunswick, Canada; and Nashville, TN. The investigation is ongoing. Anyone who has information that would be helpful in this matter can contact us at PS Investigation, PO Box 3334, Grapevine, TX 76099."
The sad part is, when the ministry of the Church of God had the chance to turn him in, they did not. The effort to silence this sick evil which went on so long in our midst was aimed at silencing the victims.
The Church of God's ONLY true prophet who was doubly blessed by his god so set himself up as a new splinter group is back again touting his prophecies for 2018. He felt the need to repost his list after COGWA published a list of 2 prophet trends to watch out for:
Eric Jones, of COGWA, named these two trends:
Two important prophetic trends to watch
1. An increase in global conflicts and authoritarianism.One of the primary themes of end-time Bible prophecies is global violence and instability. In the Olivet Prophecy, Jesus spoke these words about the time preceding the Great Tribulation and His return: “And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom” (Matthew 24:6-7). …
Then, almost arrested but not arrested, doubly blessed and eternally bitter Bob Thiel then felt he needed to supersede COGWA in order to get the last word in. The bitter prophet then republishes his 18 things to watch for in 2018.2. Germany’s increasing global role.The current edition of Foreign Affairs also features a very interesting article titled “Germany’s New Global Role” by German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier. The article describes how Germany has emerged as the most stable and powerful nation in Europe. Germany is not just the undisputed economic leader of Europe, but it is also becoming a bigger diplomatic player in global affairs, “contributing diplomatically to the peaceful resolution of multiple conflicts around the globe” (p. 106).
As usual, it is like a broke record eternally skipping on a COG record player. It is the same generalized junk that has been spouted for 80 some years. Generalizations, never any specifics like what the Prophets of old said.
18 items to prophetically watch in 2018Can you rely on Bible prophecy? Should Christians pay attention it to? Did Jesus say to watch? Are world events aligning with properly understood biblical prophecies? Dr. Thiel goes over 18 items, including:
1. Scoffers and the Modern Media;
2. Morality Prophecies Being Fulfilled Daily;
3. Weather Sorrows and Troubles;
5. The White Horse of the Apocalypse;
6. Strife and the Red Horse of War; 7. Trade;
8. The Deal of Daniel 9:27;
9. Knowledge Increasing;
11. US Dollar Dominance will Decrease;
12. Cash and 666;
14. Europe Will Work to Reorganize and Have a Great Army;
15. Steps Towards the Formation of the King of the South Will Occur;
16. The Time of the Gentiles will Lead to Armageddon;
17. Jews Ready to Sacrifice;
18. The Fulfillment of Matthew 28:19-20 and Matthew 24:14.
Should we expect anything more than this from a Church of God that has turned its back on the Jesus they claim they partially follow? Their god is so weak and their emasculated jesus is so impotent that Satan has a 100% success rate.
Satan’s premeditated strategy has a nearly 100 percent success rate. He is intimidating, abusive, manipulative, deceptive and ruthless. He never shows his true colors, and he never directly speaks the truth. His lies and half-truths are all for achieving his sole ambition: total control of mankind. Man believes he is free to choose as he pleases, rejecting any authority over him. Sadly, by rejecting the authority of God, he fails to see he is both succumbing and submitting to the authority of the adversary.All of the things that PCG describes above about Satan is a perfect description of Gerald Flurry and the ministry of the PCG AND other COG's. Flurry has never spoken the truth. He lies and creates half-truths in order to make his sheep believe he is credible. PCG has rejected the authority of God and has denied Jesus of everything he accomplished. Thus they believe Satan has 100% dominion over Christians.
For over 80 some years now the Church of God has had self-appointed prophets popping up in its midst with one miraculous revelation after another. Many of them are now dead or are sitting in their living rooms expecting a few devotees to send them money in order to keep a roof over their heads. Here we are in 2018 and not one of their prophecies has come to pass. Every single one has turned out to be a lair and a false prophet. Yet, that never seems to stop a new crop of prophets popping up year after year.
While many revealed themselves before Herbert Armstrong's death, they were nothing compared to today's crop of self-appointed prophets. Gerald Flurry claims he regularly receives divine revelations from his god. Dave Pack hit the scene running with over 130 some prophecies and a firm statement that tens of thousands of COG members would jump over to his church after his god struck down the leaders of four Churches of God. Ron Weinland has made so many failed prophecies that he now looks like a blithering idiot. All one has to do is take a look back in previous issues of The Journal and see the ads for all the other raving lunatics.
Yet, in all of this quagmire of silliness, one guy stands out in particular. For several years now he has been working overtime to remind us every other month that he IS a prophet of God. No excuse to legitimize himself is too far out to consider valid. From nightmares after a bad Mexican dinner to mentally disturbed people in other countries dreaming up dreams to legitimize our favorite prophet; the excuses are constantly flowing forth in order to impress us on how holy he really is.
Ever the constant name dropper, this prophet has to drop the names of Rod Meredith, Richard Ames, Gaylon Bomjour, Dibar Apartian and others as his "proof's."
This is what he is publishing in his booklet, "Continuing History of the Church of God: Historical Overview of the True Church of God and Some of its Main Opponents from the 1st to 21st Century."
One group that was mainly faithful for a time to the teachings and practices of the Bible and the basic doctrines of HerbertArmstrong’s old Radio/Worldwide Church of God was theGlobal, then Living Church of God. Its physical human leader has been Roderick C. Meredith, who left WCG in late 1992.
In January 1993, Dr. Meredith began a church with the name Global Church of God (GCG). About two years later, evangelist Dibar Apartian joined with him. While trying to please various ministers, Dr. Meredith made certain statements on governance and other matters that concerned many (including this author).
Then, after an unusual series of legal moves by some individuals who did not share his public vision for leading the church, Dr. Meredith decided it was necessary to leave GCG in late 1998 to form the Living Church of God (GCG in the USA shut itself down within a year). For a short time, my COGwriter.comwebsite served as LCG’s website until LCG’s website got going.
Later, Dr. Meredith made me (Bob Thiel), over my objections, promise that I needed to tell him when I thought that he was“pulling punches” doctrinally. In early 2002, after LCG came out with its first public Official Statement of Fundamental Beliefs, I sent him an email where I mentioned that I felt he was pulling punches doctrinally and informed him that the Official Statementseemed Laodicean. Many, but not all, of the additions I requested were adopted by LCG officially in November 2002.308
Prophetic and Doctrinal Matters
In the Summer of 2005, Dr. Meredith appointed me to be an advisor to the evangelists on matters of doctrine and prophecy. Some of my advice was heeded, but much was agreed to, but not implemented. It was LCG’s failure to keep promises and to publish known errors that was distressing. One LCG evangelist flat-out told me that it did not matter that errors were being sent out as most of their readers would not really know the difference.
This I found to be outrageous and unacceptable (cf. Jeremiah 48:10).
Before that happened, on October 3, 2008, Dr. Meredith telephoned me and stated, “God may consider you to be aprophet.” Shortly afterwards I told that to Dibar Apartian, whotold me, “You are either ‘the one’ (‘the one’ to lead the Philadelphians at the end) or the biggest threat to the Church!” In 2010, Dibar Apartian confirmed I was not the biggest threat, but instead that God had an important end-time role for me.309
In January 2009, Dr. Meredith told me that if he raised himself to the office of apostle that he might ordain me as a prophet (which made me wonder about his view of spiritual gifts and theological authority). Although he did not raise himself up nor ordain me, in the Fall of 2011, two LCG ministers told me that I did not need to have hands laid upon me to be a prophet. I disagreed and I specifically prayed about this ‘prophet matter’ and asked God to give me insight on whether He might consider me tobe a prophet when I was to visit LCG’s offices in Charlotte, North Carolina in December 2011.
This prayer was answered when I ended up having had hands laid upon me by LCG minister Gaylyn Bonjour on December 15, 2011. He laid hands upon me and anointed me with oil and unexpectedly prayed that I would be given a “double-portion” of God’s Spirit (which Gaylyn Bonjour ended up telling me was reminiscent of the mantle passing from Elijah to Elisha; cf. 2 Kings 2:9-15 and what this anointing could mean).
Gaylyn Bonjour’s comments then, and in March 2012, made me wonder if the mantle had truly been passed and if the final phase of the work could begin (cf. Acts 13:41; Isaiah 22:20-23; Romans 9:28).
Earlier, back on December 16, 2011, there was a private lunch in Charlotte with me and LCG evangelists Dr. Meredith, Richard Ames, and Dr. Douglas Winnail. Richard Ames prayed, with“Amen” concurrence from Dr. Meredith and Dr. Winnail, that I would continue to do the work that God has had me to do, etc.
Richard Ames also specifically called my writings/work “an additional witness.” Hence, there was a broad top-level concurrence with the evangelical and prophetic fruits of that work. Various promises were made to me by Dr. Meredith in meetings that month concerning doctrinal corrections, some of which he specifically assigned due dates in January 2012--yet none were kept that year nor the next. Instead, LCG ‘doubleddown’ and publicly promoted positions that several of its top leaders had admitted to me were errors. The Bible shows that the Jewish religious leaders somewhat knew about Jesus (John 3:1- 2), yet betrayed Him (Matthew 27:18). Sadly, though various LCG evangelists knew/suspected my role in 2012 and agreed to fix errors, in their own manners, they betrayed me and the truth.Our amazing doubly blessed prophet is so fantabulous that his prophecies go even further than Herbert Armstrong's and the heretic Rod Meredith's. In fact, Rod Meredith was such a poor prophet that even he acknowledges someone GREATER than him was to hit the scene:
Unlike Herbert Armstrong who restored truths to the Philadelphia era, and Bob Thiel who added many more details to those truths and restored more that was lost regarding church history, prophecy, and doctrine, Dr. Meredith has not claimed to do that. Nor has he fulfilled the prophetic office. Yet, he wrote that someone had to.Let's take a huge guess here. Just WHO could that ONE person be? This is so hard to contemplate! Never fear though, Doug Winnail knew who THAT prophet was:
Consider also, even after I left LCG, an email from LCG evangelist Douglas Winnail sent to me on January 7, 2013 stated,“we made comments to you that ‘you may be a prophet.’”317On September 27 2018, the divine one had to yet AGAIN tell us just how important he is to the Church of God. Like usual, he lashes out in bitterness at the Living Church of God because they have rejected him:
The Apostle Paul makes it clear that not all are prophets. Prophet is an office and prophets are to prophesy as God’s Spirit moves them. LCG’s position is that it has NO prophets (which is apparently the case as I stopped associating with LCG on 12/28/12). And it has had Dexter Wakefield publish that:We are aware of no prophets in the Church today (Wakefiel D. Living Church News, July-August 2015, p. 26)
But it should be noted that starting with a telephone call from its late top leader on October 3, 2008, LCG had repeatedly stated that God may consider Bob Thiel to be a prophet.
The craziness continues:Now that I am not in LCG, it seems obvious that LCG does not have any prophets. As far as LCG and other COGs go, they have at least 38 prophetic errors, which are cited in the article The Laodicean Church Era.
Dexter Wakefield’s ‘rare prophet’ article continued with:
“Prophets” in the sense of Elijah are rare,
True. But rare does not mean that there are not and cannot be any. Now while Dexter Wakefield did not make that error, many in various COGs have concluded that rare means none. The New Testament is clear that God has prophets who prophesy (1 Corinthians 12:28-30) and will do so in the last days (Acts 2:17-18). Those in LCG and all other COGs need to realize this.
As far as ‘Elijah,’ the position of the Church of God since the beginning is that there would be three biblical ‘Elijahs.’ The original Elijah (e.g. 1 Kings 17:1), John the Baptist (Matthew 7:12-13), and an Elijah to come at the very end of the church age (Malachi 4:4-6) to restore all things (Matthew 17:11).
LCG’s late Roderick C. Meredith taught that Elijah would be a younger man than he (Meredith, Roderick C. The Elijah Question. VTE 131, May 19, 2001). Its Dr. Winnail has improperly taught that the Elijah is not a person but an “Elijah-type work” which fulfills the Elijah prophesies in Matthew 17:10-11 and Malachi 4:4-6 (Winnail D. The Mission of the Church. Living Church News, March-April 2006, p. 7). The Bible shows that ‘Elijah’ will be a person.
As far as rarity goes, I would ask, “How many people were told by an actual top evangelist in the Church of God that God may consider him to be a prophet?” In the 20th and 21st centuries, there is only one who comes to mind. So, while prophets are “rare,” and being told one is a prophet by an ordained evangelist is also rare, rarity does not mean that there are none.
As far as “Elijah” goes, he is to “restore all things” (Matthew 17:11).
Even the Living Church of God has taught about restoration–yet LCG has NOT restored what it says should be done.There is one person, in particular, that is to blame
The truth about early and apostolic Christians is that it is PROVABLY NOT IN LCG AND IS FAR MORE IMPORTANT than Dr. Meredith realized. When I was in LCG in 2011, I was trying to help them restore much of it; Dr. Meredith agreed, but then failed to keep his word. Dr. Meredith’s failure to keep his word on that and other matters was a major reason that the Continuing Church of God had to form.Where has the historical knowledge of the early Church of God been most fully restored?
Not true at all! The improperly named "continuing" Church of God is NOT carrying on any truth. It is also a FACT that Bob Thiel is a false prophet and a liar. God no more set him up as a prophet than he has Dave Pack, Gerald Flurry or Ron Weinland.In the Continuing Church of God!
All one has to do is look at the biblical record of prophets. They never seek to legitimize themselves. They never lie about themselves. They speak unapologetically while never whining.
Now take a look at the myriad of COG prophets who regularly pop up like pimples on Satans butt. They constantly come and go and accomplish nothing other than whine and bellyache in between the lies they regurgitate on a regular basis.
There is not a single man in the Church of God today that is a prophet. Not a single one!
In spite of his adherence to the law and his imitation of Herbert, people still reject him and he is not happy.
Like all the other legalistic buffoons that have preceded him, Pharisee Malm is determined to see himself as a prophet. Pretty soon he too will be peddling dreams and anointings in order to dupe his followers. Just like Bob Thiel, Malm is one more in a long line of false prophets leading gullible COG members into the utter rejection of the one they claim to follow. Prostituting one's self to the law does not make one a Christian.
Stephen Flurry, the heir apparent of the most despotic Church of God on earth today, has written a missive to the youth of the Philadelphia Church of God. Notice it was written to a "great many" of the youth. Not all of them will apprenlty make it into the hellish kingdom that the Flurry clan intend to place upon this earth. After ripping apart families and marriages, these are the people that intend to rule the world with
Can you imagine surviving World War III and then finding out that you will be ruled over by a bunch of self-righteous, Irish dancing, snot-nosed members of the Flurry clan and their followers. The licking flames of the Lake of Fire will never have look so good! Imagine having to live a thousand years in the millennium being ruled over by these people! It is easy to see why when Satan is released at the end of the millennium why so many will join up with him.
In this new world to come, the adults of the faithful PCG will be gods and unable to do any work. Typical elitist Armstrongite mythology.
This new world we’re talking about is. Constructing homes will require architects, carpenters, bricklayers, electricians, plumbers, painters. Farmers will cultivate food and tailors make clothing. You will have a job you are well suited for.
Remember, today’s Spirit-begotten adults will be spirit beings. That means they will not be the ones physically building this new society. God will need a strong team of physical leaders He can count on to dig into the multitude of projects around the world.
The bulk of mankind will be just beginning their education in God’s ways—and probably recovering from the shell-shock of the Tribulation for some time. You, on the other hand, are not only alreadyreceiving true education, you will have been saved out of the world’s worst troubles, all the while being groomed and prepared for great responsibility and opportunity. So who will lead such projects? It will be YOU—the in all the Earth!
