Nuclear holocaust

Beyond Babylon hopes to help avert nuclear holocaust

From one of many forums:


Shimon Peres: Death Knell for Israel?

David Ben-Ariel is a psychopath, terrorist, religious fundamentalist, bent on causing Armageddon.


In other words, you can't debate, so you defame; you can't refute, so you ridicule. The funny thing is the more dirt you throw, the dirtier you get.

Those who know me, know that I am doing all I can to help avert the nuclear holocaust the German-Jesuit EU will ignite against the British-Israelites and Jews. Such German-Jesuits are aided and abetted by the likes of that bloody vulture, Shimon Peres.

Yitzhak Rabin was sacrificed by the Israeli oligarchy for their German-Jesuit masters intent on occupying Jerusalem.

Your rants and raves won't stop me from continuing to share the plain truth of the Bible and history or to stop praying for you and our proud and stubborn peoples bent on destruction, until God says "enough is enough" and lets the Beast loose that is presently restrained...

Gossiping about Herbert W. Armstrong?

Some indulge in spreading sexual rumors about Herbert W. Armstrong, attacking the messenger since they can't refute the plain truth of the Bible he courageously taught.

Those who are guilty of gossiping about Herbert W. Armstrong will have "hell" to pay, if they remain unrepentant. Those guilty of spreading dirt must answer: Do you believe everything you hear or read? If it were true, why wasn't Mr. Armstrong ever indicted or convicted for it? Those are some serious accusations.

15 Accusations and Truthful Responses about Herbert W. Armstrong

Those who truly are Christians understand that the Christian thing to do, especially in light of the fact that the worst accusations against Herbert W. Armstrong would be thrown out of court, dismissed for lack of evidence, is to give Herbert W. Armstrong the benefit of the doubt, as we would want, knowing the love is to love our neighbor as ourselves, and trust that if and wherever sin MIGHT have occurred, Mr. Armstrong repented of it and rest assured that the blood of Christ is more than sufficient to cover him.

It becomes clear that SATAN IS THE ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN and stirs up hateful individuals who can't refute the truth of what Mr. Armstrong taught so they engage in diversionary tactics and attack the messenger. We're not ignorant of such demonic devices.

Romans 8:1

1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus...

Romans 8:33-34

33 Who shall bring a charge against God's elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

Racist system against blacks?

IF the system is so racist against blacks, then shouldn't that encourage blacks to stay on the strait and narrow and dare not wander off and become fair prey to the beast they complain about? Why do they walk into the lion's mouth, time and again, knowing better?

IF the system is so racist against blacks, if they truly can't get justice, then why not move to Africa like Abraham Lincoln proposed so they can rule themselves? Undoubtedly, it's easier to stay put and complain and milk the liberal media and expect more handouts from the overburdened white man.

Overt Plans for New Israeli Government

Overt Plans for New Israeli Government
Yitzhak Rabin ^ | 09-21-07 | Hashkem Yisrael

It is incumbent upon the People to determine the fitness of their government system and the people therein. That right is an inalienable one. It has come to pass that the Israeli post Oslo system and government operatives have consistently proven to the majority of the Jewish people that the government system and in particular certain elements that have taken residence within it, are utterly unfit to carry out the functions of a Jewish state on the Jewish Nation's behalf.

German collaboration for radical militarization

Here are some more facts of the troubling trends in Germany that will affect all Europe and the world, even as Herbert W. Armstrong warned:

Newsletter 2007/09/18 - To Corner

BERLIN (Own report) - With his resolute plea for German Army (Bundeswehr) intervention in the domestic affairs of the country, the Minister of Defense, Franz-Josef Jung, (CDU) is advancing strategies of the German military elite (the "strategic community"). He announced last weekend that the Air Force could be ordered to shoot down hijacked passenger jet liners - if necessary in violation of the German Constitution. This demand corresponds to considerations being advanced since some time by the Bundesakademie fьr Sicherheitspolitik in Berlin (BAKS, Federal College for Security Studies) which include also plans to alter "essential sections" of the Constitution. To reach this objective, the BAKS has been working for years to establish a network in the various ministries, enterprises and the media. And the chancellery is helping. President Horst Kцhler is supportive of these activities. On September 14 at the Bundeswehr's Leadership Academy, in Hamburg, he demanded that the military elite intervene more than previously in debates on German security policy and "efficiently corner the leadership personnel of the state, the economy and the society". Berlin's projects would signify a radical militarization of life in the society.

Whereas most Germans are not aware of vile intentions of influential Germans under Jesuit influence to revive the unholy Roman Empire of the German Nation, the Fourth Reich, to embark on a new crusade into the Middle East, Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall bares their grand design before the world: the German-Assyrians will strike again!

The Atlantic Times, regardless of whether or not they believe any of this prophetic scenario possible, owes it to their readers to address this issue that is most serious to a growing number of Bible-believing Christians and many Jews. Can we trust them to deliver?

Black racists support Jena savages

"St. John's African-American Assembly... UT's Black Student Union...[Bowling Green State University] Black Student Union...NAACP." Get the picture? All this in one Toledo Blade article about area campuses jumping on the black bandwagon to make martyrs out of thugs and feel smug about it and pretend racism is a one way street.
Where is the White-American Assembly, UT's White Student Union, Bowling Green State University White Student Union, NAAWP? Oh, but that would be "racist," wouldn't it? How glaring the double-standards continue to be -- a deplorable status quo that must end.
The institutionalized racism of reverse discrimination has got to go! No more racist "affirmative action" or quotas or hide behind the color of your skin because you lack character or qualifications!
With so many black men pretending to be ministers, racist pimps from the pulpit, you wouldn't think that the black community would have such disproportionate amount of criminals and such an outrageous rate of illegitimacy. Black community: preach to yourself! Stop blaming others for your own self-inflicted problems. Stop proving stereotypes about you are too often true; everything from you don't fight your own battles but gang up on somebody (like the black "Jena 6" against the white "Jena 1"); you're not working and supposedly can't afford to pay for your own food and housing but find the time and money to make banners and posters and tee shirts and take a joy trip down South feeling important. Educated white folks (Euro-Americans, British-Americans, Irish-Americans, Italian-Americans, German-Americans, Scottish-Americans, Dutch-Americans, French-Americans, Greek-Americans, Norwegian-Americans, etc.) just shake their heads in dismay at such stupidity and misguided zeal.
Instead of trying to intimidate the justice system in Jena to pervert justice and let thugs go free, accusing them of throwing away the future of those six blacks who savagely beat the one white student, teach your illegitimate children to be responsible and stop throwing away their future by gang-banging, selling drugs, etc. Oh, but that demands at least one parent they can claim who cares enough before they get into trouble with the law and then suddenly find family and friends expressing "righteous indignation" and interest in the case.
Where are the parents of that six pack? Didn't they teach them to cherish diversity? To respect freedom of speech? Understand different views? Instead they resorted to violence to express themselves like brute beasts who can't debate or exercise enough self-control to engage in civil disobedience.

Are Arabs foreign filth?

Excerpt from Backpage.com Forums

The Arabs are the same race as Jews!

[David Ben-Ariel] is a member of the Temple Mount Faithful and his mission is to urge the Israeli government to take the site from Muslim control. “I am calling upon the Israeli people to repent and as part of their national repentance to cleanse The Temple Mount of its foreign filth, those foreign mosques that occupy Judaism’s most holy site.”

East Toledoan calls his book, Beyond Babylon, God’s final warning

It's very clear, to objective observers, that my reference here to foreign filth was concerning the foreign mosques that spiritually pollute the Temple Mount.

The Palestinians should go too. “Israel should cleanse the land of this filth and their polluted mind set and remove the threat by expelling them. It’s logical. America would never tolerate a particular people saying, `We are going to take your capitol and make it ours.’”

Again, the Arabs are the same race as the Jews. It should be clear I'm referring primarily to the filth of a FIFTH COLUMN that seeks to undermine Israeli sovereignty and mass murder Jews.

However, from a biblical standpoint, the hostile Arab forces occupying the Temple Mount are considered spiritually unclean Gentiles. That isn't racist - it's religious: believe it or not. Have you never read Jesus' reference to Gentiles? He called them dogs. Is He racist? Or merely a good ol' bigot?

Regardless, I don't cower before such abused terms as "racist" or "racism." I wholeheartedly reject the PC cult and encourage others to do likewise and break free from its shackles.

I trust this clarifies your issue.

Barroso is a liar: EU is a threat to UK

The European Observer reports:
In true Luciferian fashion, European commission president Jose Manuel Barroso stated before UK politicians the exact opposite of what is truth, turning everything upside down and inside out to pull the wool over the UK's eyes to strip them of national sovereignty and lead them into national captivity.
"Europe is not full of hidden plots...Europe is an opportunity not a threat."
Isaiah warns lying politicians and those who aid and abet them: "Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees" (Isaiah 10:1) and exposes their tactics as less than truthful, condemning them as downright deceptive:
"Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
Why would Barroso and his partners in EU slime engage in such perverse propaganda? Because they are mere mortals playing God, attempting to change the rules to fit their New World Order based upon themselves, their idolatrous ideas, their counterfeit kingdom of God in the making, a modern Babylon:
"Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes,
And prudent in their own sight!" (Isaiah 5:20-21).
Let the British-Israelites beware the EU wolves! The German-Jesuit EU is brim full and overflowing with plots, a threat to national sovereignty and religious freedom, subversive and satanic to the core!

How can you support someone doing something you don't agree with. Also it is a fact that our troops me being one feel totally abandoned by democrats because we you you don't support us and we know your kind are going to be the undoing of this country.

Dear Craig Wolfe,
As an American who is a descendant of 3 American presidents and two Mayflower Pilgrims, any comments I have concerning MY country are not to be twisted as "anti-American." If you think lockstep approval of everything our globalist president and globalist senators do is somehow patriotic, you're a FOOL and a USEFUL IDIOT for them.
Some of us love our troops apparently more than sheeple like you do, because we want them to be used only to truly protect Americans, not to be used in endless meat-grinder hot spots overextended around the globe while the industrial military complex gets rich off their blood money.
I am far from a liberal, and am more conservative than most conservatives, so your hateful diatribe is without foundation from get-go. Besides, it is both liberals and blind conservatives like you who have destroyed this country, while truly patriotic Christian citizens like me are exposing the sins of both your parties and calling for NATIONAL REPENTANCE. Otherwise, the German-EU will deal us the death blow: believe it or not.
If you're not prepared for honest discussion and debate that "We The People" need, preferring to think you know it all and have no room for growth or improvement, then I need to know which group or whatever you're with so I can delete you from my address book since I don't see your name in it right now.

The Sabbath: Only for the Old Testament?

The Sabbath: Only for the Old Testament?
Using the New Testament alone, can you prove that the Sabbath is still in effect today? By Ryan Malone

We live in a country that celebrates religious freedom. Visit many cities, any college town especially, and you will most likely find several different buildings used for worship—a Muslim mosque, a Jewish synagogue, and numerous Christian churches. Of course these religions are vastly different. The most obvious way they differ is the actual day of the week their buildings are used for worship. The Muslims worship on Friday, the Jews on Saturday and the Christians on Sunday. But still, the majority of Sunday church-goers really haven’t proved why they worship on Sunday.

Ask any member of the Christian faith why he or she attends worship services on Sunday, and you’ll receive a variety of answers. The Bible says to go to Church on Sunday, one might respond. But you, being the astute Bible student, point out that there are a significant number of passages in this Book that command observance on the seventh day of the week. Now, watch the responses. Some will reason that the seventh day of the week is Sunday—assuming that it has been that way since the Bible was canonized. But probably a more convincing argument and, by far, the most popular is:the Sabbath was only for the Old Testament.

Point out any contradiction to their theology with the Ten Commandments, and they will quickly retort that that was under the Old Covenant. The general rule they follow is, if it’s in the Old Testament, it’s out of the equation. They reason that because they are Christian, and follow Christ, and He came about in the NEW Testament, that makes anything before His birth irrelevant to the Christian faith.

Is the seventh-day Sabbath just for the Old Testament? Does the Sabbath stand a chance if we only use the latter half of our Bible? Let’s tie one hand behind our backs and prove the Sabbath using only the New Testament!

We’ll do this by dividing the New Testament into three parts: the time of Christ—seeing whether or not He kept the Sabbath, the time after Christ—just in case some argue that certain things were nailed to the cross, or that a possible Sunday resurrection might have changed things, and the time we live in right now—seeing if we are still required to keep it “in the ’90s.”

A sincere Christian usually looks heavily toward Christ as the example in everything, hence the common Bible-belt phrase:What would Jesus do? That is a good question. But a better might be, What DID Jesus do? Did Christ keep the Sabbath? If so, that should certainly prick someone’s conscience.

“And they went into Capernaum; and straightway on the sabbath day he entered into the synagogue, and taught” (Mark 1:21). So one has to admit, Christ kept the Sabbath. But was this just a one-time event? He did come to preach the gospel, and maybe this was His only chance to preach it to the Jews in Capernaum.

Notice:”And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read” (Luke 4:16). Here is Jesus Christ of Nazareth back where He grew up, where He was trained, where He learned about the Sabbath as a child. This is where the custom developed.

It’s easily provable that Christ kept the Sabbath and, in fact, that it was His custom to do so. But notice, even further clinching it, Mark 2:28:”Therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.” Christians believe that Christ existed, as spirit, before His physical birth. Therefore, He was part of the creation of the Sabbath. In fact, since God created all things through Him (Ephesians 3:9), Jesus Christ actually created the Sabbath!

What about the time after Christ? He came, kept the Sabbath, was crucified and resurrected. Did Christ do away with the Sabbath? Was it “nailed to the cross”? Many believe He was resurrected on a Sunday, and that is precedent enough for the church to change its day of worship. How do we answer these arguments? We must go to our second division of the New Testament. Did the Church after Christ keep the Sabbath?

The most prominent figure in the New Testament, simply due to the quantity he wrote, is Paul. Surely, within his 14 epistles plus the book of Acts—written by Luke, but mostly about Paul—we can find something about which day he worshiped.

First, there are many who believe we should observe Sunday because of references to the first day of the week in this part of the New Testament. Let’s consider the “first day of the week” argument.

There are eight New Testament passages that contain the phrase “first day of the week,” the word day not even being in the original Greek any of those times. Acts 20:7 is probably the verse most refer to: “And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.” Yes, Paul preached, and the disciples broke bread—meaning they ate a meal on the first day of the week. And remember, in the Bible, the day begins at sunset (Leviticus 23:32). Here the disciples are eating a meal at night, since there were “many lights in the upper chamber” (verse 8), and Paul spoke “until midnight” (verse 7). If this was the first day of the week, it had to have been Saturday night, for if it were Sunday night, it would already be the second day to Luke, the writer of these verses. Concluding his stay in Troas (verse 6), Paul was departing “on the morrow,” or on the next morning. He was merely meeting with the disciples to have one last meal and speak to them one last time before leaving the next day.

The other seven passages that refer to the first day of the week, if they even allude to God’s people coming together at all, do not give any evidence whatsoever of Sunday being a day of worship. The late Herbert W. Armstrong, a minister of God and founder of Ambassador College, was challenged about the Sabbath early in his life. In his book Which Day Is the Christian Sabbath?, he examines each instance the New Testament refers to “first day of the week,” and proves that no worship services were held on this day. Refer to this book for deeper study into these passages.

In fact, others realize that these eight passages give no precedent for a day change—the Catholic Church among them: “You may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day we never sanctify” (Cardinal Gibbons, Faith of Our Fathers).

Now let’s prove which day Paul actually kept. “Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures” (Acts 17:1-2).

Here Paul is keeping the Sabbath. And he kept it with the Jews, meaning that this was the seventh day of the week, as the Jews have always observed. Understand, this wasn’t a one-time deal. He did it “three sabbath days.” And he didn’t do it simply because he was in town for three weeks, and it was convenient. Luke wrote, “as his manner was.” The word for “manner” is the same Greek word Luke used when he wrote “custom” in Luke 4:16. So just as it was Christ’s custom to keep the Sabbath day,it was Paul’s—years after Christ had been resurrected!

There is also an account in Acts 13 where Paul preaches to both the Jews and Gentiles in the synagogue—on the Sabbath, which proves that it wasn’t just for the Jews. In fact, the Jews were offended by Paul’s message, and “the Gentiles besought that these words might be preached to them the next sabbath” (verse 42). If Paul kept Sunday as well, why didn’t he just tell the believing Gentiles to come the next day (Sunday) where he’d preach at the Christian Church? The fact is, Paul was a Christian who, like the rest of the New Testament Church, observed the Sabbath. “And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God” (verse 44).

Yes, this is all very convincing, one might argue. But it’s the ’90s! Could God and the resurrected Jesus Christ expect us to observe the Sabbath in this fast-paced, hustle-bustle society?The way to answer this is by looking at prophecy to see if people in the future will be keeping this day.

Matthew 24 is referred to by most Bible scholars as the “Olivet prophecy,” where Christ privately discussed with His disciples the time just prior to His return. Notice, concerning the end time, Christ says to these very elect, “But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day. For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be” (verses 20-21). God is offering His very elect protection from this Great Tribulation. And he tells them to be concerned about two things when they travel: the winter and the Sabbath.

Now, if the skeptics can see that winter is still in existence in the end time, why do they believe the Sabbath wouldn’t be? Even if some doubt that we actually live in the “end time,” they cannot dispute that these verses refer to the time right before Christ returns. So, even if that time is far off, we know that the Sabbath will continue to be in effect until that point! And those who escape will be concerned as to how they keep it.

We have seen that Christ kept the Sabbath while on earth. The New Testament Church after Him did as well. We have also seen that the Sabbath is to be in effect up until the return of Jesus Christ.

The Sabbath is not only for the Old Testament, but is still in living effect today! Those who once closed their minds to the Old Testament can now go back to this half of the Bible and see why and how to observe the Sabbath. They can go back to Genesis and see how God put His presence in this day, thus making it holy (Genesis 2:1-3). They can see that the depth and meaning of this weekly observance goes far beyond merely entering a building.

The Sabbath means resting from the labor of the week and remembering the Creator. But, more importantly, it typifies a time of rest from this hectic world, of which Satan is now deceiver and god (Revelation 12:9; 2 Corinthians 4:4). The 6,000 years Satan has had man in his grasp are a type of the six-day work week, since 1000 years is as one day to God (2 Peter 3:8). When Christ returns to stop mankind from erasing himself from the face of the planet (Matthew 24:21-22), He will rule this earth for 1000 years (Revelation 20:4-6)—the seventh day of God’s 7,000-year plan. It will truly be a rest from the great deceiver, who at that time will be restrained in a bottomless pit (verses 1-3). And it will be a time when the Sabbath will be kept (Isaiah 66:23)—a time when its true meaning couldn’t be any more evident!

On top of the ample proof we have seen from the New Testament alone, there is enough vision attached with it to clinch the argument that we must observe this day. It was one of the Ten Commandments delivered thousands of years ago at Mt. Sinai (Exodus 20:8-11) and commanded to be kept forever (Exodus 31:13). Our very salvation depends on this commandment!

Israel enables Nazi-Muslims

I was never arrested, I was never charged of being involved in any plot, or anything illegal, but I was the target of politico-religious persecution for exposing Israeli hypocrisy in pretending they respect religious freedom while enabling Nazi-Muslims to trample the religious rights of Christians and Jews daily upon the TEMPLE Mount that they presently occupy. They forbid Christians or Jews from praying or reading the Bible on the most holy site where the temples stood, Jesus taught and the disciples worshiped.

Bush betrays America for Germany

Globalist stooge George W. Bush, in collaboration with treacherous toy senators and world leaders, is selling out the sovereignty of the United States of America for the German-EU.

The surge of illegal immigrants to our "nation of laws" amounts to an assault on our national borders and battery against our national defense. President Bush's criminal refusal to treat illegal aliens as potential enemy combatants is a clear and present danger to our national security.

Undoubtedly, racist organizations like La Raza and MEChA are allied with the dark forces of al Qaeda and other terrorist groups. We can expect such an unholy union between Hispanics and Arabs (and their useful idiots and sympathizers) to create chaos and confusion on cue, engage in mass murder attacks in America as planned, blowing up our buses, maiming our malls and leaving our highways deserted, delivered with demands for the creation of Atzlan -- their dream about to become America's worst nightmare to date.

Don't be surprised to find conservative plants and liberal lackeys who will throw fuel on the Hispanic secessionist fire by suggesting concessions, initially offering parts of the American southwest to foreign forces, even calling for the expulsion of American citizens from targeted areas. Hard to believe? Prepare to be dumbfounded!

Israel has insanely expelled Jews from their homes and property and the animals are now running the South African farm and Zimbabwe is in ruins. It's madness, and it's all part of the curse for national disobedience (Dan. 9:11). It's not enough to see or warn about the subversive effects of illegal immigration and decry tolerance for treacherous talk of Atzlan. We must get to the root cause, however politically incorrect or "racist" some might emotionally charge, the facts must be known:

Our Great Creator God has given these "Lands of the Covenant" ( Artzot HaBrit - United States in Hebrew ) to the descendants of the biblical patriarch Joseph, first and foremost, the Anglo-Saxons (Joes). Manifest Destiny was all part of the Divine Plan to grant Joseph's Birthright Blessing of unparalleled power and prosperity to us (that we shared with our British-Israelite brethren, our combined influence extending to the far reaches of the Earth as foretold).

Now due to inexcusable idolatry and immorality, God has begun to strip us of what He had given us. "The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away." He has fulfilled His Word in bestowing Joseph's Birthright Blessing, but it was our solemn responsibility to hold on to it by leading proper lives of loving obedience to God with an attitude of gratitude. Instead we've taken everything for granted and now find our borders and our lives getting frittered away. National destruction, defeat and deportation are on the horizon as our sun sets and the German-dominated Europe rises.

Will we remember our Hebrew roots and biblical responsibilities and act accordingly, or get sold down the river and across the oceans by American agents of Nazi Germans and Jesuits working for Germany's Fourth Reich? Will our turn-coat leaders betray us to the bitter end, enabling infectious Hispanic and Arab Trojan-terrorists to weaken our infrastructure and battle our will and erode our sovereignty, with fascist Europe dealing us the death blow?

Don't Expel Jews from Gaza!

Will the Atlantic Times Address the German Threat?

The Intelligence Summit Misses the Mark: the German-Jesuit Threat to World Peace

Death to America: Major American Cities Targeted By Terrorists?

Death to America: Major American Cities Targeted By Terrorists?

Will Providence permit foreign murderers in our midst (in attitude, if not yet in action) to unleash nuclear fires within our major cities? Will militant minorities work with them against us? Won't our British-Israelite brethren suffer the same within their respective biblical inheritances?

If our beloved nation has refused to remember our Hebrew roots and biblical responsibilities (and forswear foreign religious ways and hollow days of pagan origin God's Word condemns) and sustain a healthy interest in the spiritual and return to the God of the Bible, aren't we only reaping more of what we've sown and suffering cause and effect, the dire consequences of our national sins? (Daniel 9:11).

Will the Great God of history and all Creation let us continue to get knocked down and around until Europe deals us the death blow? Are we headed for the disasters of food and water shortages, race riots, terrorist sleeper cells activated, supernatural weather and plagues of biblical proportion until we suffer NATIONAL DEFEAT AND DEPORTATION?

Is the fascist EU destined to conquer the Anglo-Saxons and Jews? Will we save ourselves and our loved ones from the savage state of near extinction, hear and heed the warnings of imminent famine, destruction and houses left desolate? (2 Chronincles 7:14). Or will we demand divine intervention after three and a half years of "hell" before Heaven is established on Earth?

The choice is ours to make. God help us to CHOOSE LIFE!

Isaiah 1:4-9

4Alas, sinful nation,
A people laden with iniquity,
A brood of evildoers,
Children who are corrupters!
They have forsaken the LORD,
They have provoked to anger
The Holy One of Israel,
They have turned away backward.
5Why should you be stricken again?
You will revolt more and more.
The whole head is sick [the government],
And the whole heart faints [national morale].
6From the sole of the foot even to the head,
There is no soundness in it,
But wounds and bruises and putrefying sores;
They have not been closed or bound up,
Or soothed with ointment.
7Your country is desolate,
Your cities are burned with fire;
Strangers devour your land in your presence;
And it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.

8So the daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard,
As a hut in a garden of cucumbers,
As a besieged city.
9Unless the LORD of hosts
Had left to us a very small remnant [some Holocaust survivors],
We would have become like Sodom,
We would have been made like Gomorrah [totally extinct, destroyed].

Was the apostle Paul a cult leader?

Typical opposition to the Word of God on forums:

Alert

As a moderator I need to give a warning to all those reading David's posts: He is promoting a cult. Herbert Armstrong was a cult leader

Alert


As a Bible-believing Christian, I need to encourage folks to be noble like the Bereans and search the Scriptures to see whether these things are so, and to remember the early Sabbath-keeping Church of God was also falsely accused by those proud and stubborn religious people who preferred idolatrous traditions over the plain truth of the Bible. God is witness.

Acts 24

14 But this I confess to you, that according to the Way which they [traditionalists] call a cult, so I worship the God of my fathers, believing all things which are written in the Law and in the Prophets.

Acts 28

22 But we desire to hear from you what you think; for concerning this sect, we know that it is spoken against everywhere.

Does it make any difference which days we observe—or whether we keep them? Does the Bible establish whether we are to keep certain days holy to God? Were these days given to ancient Israel only? Are they binding today only on the Jewish people, while Christians are commanded to keep holidays such as Christmas?

Is The Plain Truth Too Strong?

Recently somebody who went by the name of "Refiner's Fire" (ironically) condemned my writing style as a stumbling block:

Did you plant the seed of "truth" in this person, or did you turn this person away with your words? Yes, I know people need to hear the "truth", but how can they, if they are getting nailed across the head with a 2x4 by your writing style?

Have you never read where Paul, like Yeshua, must have offended some? "Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?" (Galatians 4:16).

There are plenty of others who write in a more gentle style. That is their prerogative. I don't speak against their approach, since the Bible basically teaches "different strokes for different folks." After all, tough love is tough love.

Have you never read where Yeshua spoke of how some will make up any excuse under the sun regardless of the effort to reach them, whether we dance for them or mourn?

Luke 7:31-35

31"To what, then, can I compare the people of this generation? What are they like? 32They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling out to each other:

" 'We played the flute for you,
and you did not dance;
we sang a dirge,
and you did not cry.' 33For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, 'He has a demon.' 34The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, 'Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and "sinners." ' 35But wisdom is proved right by all her children."

If somebody is of God, or being called by God, they can get good and angry like Herbert W. Armstrong did with his wife with her seventh day Sabbath "fanaticism" -- mad enough to check it out, which he did, and then he saw she was right! And he was humble enough to admit it and submit to it and turn from pagan Sunday to the holy Sabbath.

My responsibility is to share the plain truth of the Bible as God has given me to understand it. How folks respond to the plain truth is not my responsibility. It is between God and them. That being said, I believe the time of "soft spoken" ministers is about up, and that we need more refining fire ministers (not dying embers) or refining fire servants of God (not dying embers) willing to turn over a few tables and kick a few chairs and drive out some men and animals from the Temple courtyards with a whip in hand, turning heads and raising eyebrows, as necessary.

The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 certainly won't speak in pretty platitudes and the whole world will hate their guts and wish them dead! Those who simply want to hear smooth things will continue to hear smooth things from their false prophets and lying ministers.

Isaiah 30:9-11

9 These are rebellious people, deceitful children [1 John 2:4],
children unwilling to listen to the LORD's instruction.

10 They say to the seers,
"See no more visions!"
and to the prophets,
"Give us no more visions of what is right!
Tell us pleasant things,
prophesy illusions.

11 Leave this way,
get off this path,
and stop confronting us
with the Holy One of Israel!"[by replacing him with a Gentilized Jesus, a counterfeit gospel and a different spirit]

2 Timothy 4:3-4

3For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. 4They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths [like Christmas and Easter].

Since our countries are incurring the wrath of God, and soon will suffer divine punishment for our pagan holidays like Christmas pretending to be Christian -- part of our national idolatry and immorality we must confess and forsake to avert a nuclear holocaust -- it's time to love and obey God and:

Isaiah 58

1 "Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression [the Church and Synagogue], And the house of Jacob [the family of Israelite nations - all Twelve Tribes of Israel] their sins. 2 Yet they seek Me daily, And delight to know My ways, As a nation that did righteousness, And did not forsake the ordinance of their God. They ask of Me the ordinances of justice; They take delight in approaching God.

Folks who continue in their pagan ways and hollow days will be left without excuse. God won't go for the lame excuse, "Well, we didn't appreciate how folks like David Ben-Ariel came across." God will simply say, "Why weren't you like the noble Bereans and look and see if these things were so and act accordingly?"

Acts 17:11

11Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.

Enough excuses!

Revelation 3:19

As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

Raising The Ruins by Stephen Flurry (Synopsis)

Synopsis
The Destruction of a Religious Empire

Herbert W. Armstrong was the world‘s leading televangelist and one of the most prominent religious leaders of the 20th century, watched, read and followed by millions worldwide. But his legacy of Bible-based humanitarianism came under attack after he died. The cabal of leaders who took control of the church he founded, after pledging to “follow in his footsteps,” methodically destroyed all he had built. Those who would stop them were silenced or excommunicated.

Had it happened in the corporate world, the CEOs and executives responsible for hijacking a corporation and robbing its investors would have been fired, if not prosecuted in a court of law.

Never before has this shocking story been told in such riveting detail. Drawing upon official reports, internal memos, court depositions and personal interviews, Stephen Flurry exposes the depth of corruption and deceit that was “Tkachism” the administration of Joseph Tkach, who succeeded Mr. Armstrong as pastor general of the Worldwide Church of God.

In this book you will learn:

  • How Tkach‘s men altered doctrines under Mr. Armstrong‘s nose even before he died.
  • How the Tkach transformation was driven from the start by an agenda that even shocked most of the top ministers.
  • How early on, Tkachism brazenly denied its radical changes before the church members.
  • How Tkachism slashed media operations under the pretense of “wise stewardship” while income soared at a record $1 billion in five years.
  • How Tkachism shamefully forced out the very members whose contributions had built the multi-million dollar empire.
  • How Tkach‘s men told church members the message of Mr. Armstrong‘s magnum opus, Mystery of the Ages, was still official, while they secretly trashed 120,000 copies of the book.
  • How Tkach Jr. considered it his “Christian duty” to stamp out Mr. Armstrong‘s writings.
  • How Tkach Jr. nearly achieved that goal in a six-year legal battle, but then, for fear of being exposed, surrendered.
  • How the marvelous wonder of Mr. Armstrong‘s work is being raised from the ruins.

Worldwide Church of God leaders today present themselves to the mainstream evangelical world as a band of courageous truth-lovers who sacrificed everything to follow Jesus Christ. The stubborn facts of what they did, however, tell a far more sinister story—a story they have done their utmost to keep buried. This book exhumes those facts and exposes them to the furious light of day, as they should have been all along, for your scrutiny.

Herbert Armstrong: He Was Right

Herbert Armstrong: He Was Right
A look back at the prescient warnings of a lesser-known spiritual leader.
By Mark Jenkins

From the very start of his work, when the Church was called the Radio Church of God, Herbert W. Armstrong realized in his study of the Bible that he must warn about a coming religiously dominated European superpower just before the return of Jesus Christ to Earth.

In a July 24, 1983, letter he wrote, “The very first issue of the Plain Truth magazine appeared February 1934—just 50 years ago lacking about six months. The article starting on the cover page warned of a coming sudden appearance of a resurrected ‘Holy Roman Empire’ in Europe—a union of 10 nations in Europe under one government, with one united military force. For 50 years I have been crying out to the world the Bible prophecies of this coming ‘United States of Europe’—a new united superpower perhaps more powerful than either the Soviet Union or the United States!”

That warning continued, unabated, right up to Mr. Armstrong’s death in 1986.

Knowing that the Bible prophesied a final resurrection of the Holy Roman Empire, Mr. Armstrong took special care to watch those men who were critical to the planning and formation of the European Union. In the late 1970s, he identified a man we should watch carefully: John Paul II. The appointment of a Polish pope—the first non-Italian pope in over 400 years—was like an electric jolt to the entire world, Catholic and non-Catholic alike. It was clear to Mr. Armstrong that the return of Jesus Christ was drawing near and that this pope, more than any before him, was setting the stage for the most climactic time in history and preparing the Roman Catholic Church for its role in end-time events.

From our perspective, another man deserves careful scrutiny as well: Herbert Armstrong. The prophecies we often write about—the coming together of the European superpower, the growing alliance between Russia and China, the soon-coming return of Jesus Christ—were covered by him for over 50 years before the Trumpet even existed. Our prophetic understanding is grounded in his work. His instructions to watch the pope as we lead up to the return of Jesus Christ provided an education that far excels that of any news commentator.

Today, both John Paul and Herbert Armstrong are dead, but the actions they took have prepared the way for the prophetic fulfillment of the return of Christ. By reviewing these actions—and Mr. Armstrong’s comments on Bible prophecy during that critical period—we can see exactly how right Mr. Armstrong was to watch the pope.

John Paul II

Karol Wojtyla prepared the way for Europe’s unification, east with west. Read Mr. Armstrong’s comments on this pope’s first trip to Poland, in 1979, and the eventual outcome: “Many of … Pope John Paul II’s activities point to the fact that he can be the pope that will initiate this European reunion, in a ‘United States of Europe.’ As a matter of fact, his having come from Poland, and the effect of his visit there, indicate that instead of the coming ‘resurrected’ Holy Roman Empire including such nations of Israelitish ancestry as Holland, Denmark, Norway and Sweden, the 10 nations to compose it may include such nations—now Russian satellites—as Poland, Czechoslovakia, Romania and Yugoslavia. The latter two are long since, to a considerable degree, independent of the Kremlin. The Soviet Union may soon experience a breakaway of some of the Balkan satellite nations. It does seem that the nations of Israelitish ancestry, in western and northwestern Europe, would likely be excluded from the coming 10-nation ‘Roman Empire’” (co-worker letter, Sept. 20, 1979).

In 2004, just as Mr. Armstrong foretold, eight former Eastern bloc countries were admitted to the European Union—including Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Slovenia. Romania and Croatia are currently in the application process. As Mr. Armstrong stated, John Paul II precipitated the unification of Eastern Europe with its western counterpart.

The pope also started Europe down the path to religious unification. Mr. Armstrong often talked about how a united Catholic Church would drive Europe, even over the objection of its political leadership. “Bible prophecy says this European unification will be also a union of church and state (Revelation 17). Many European political leaders do not want religious domination, or even participation. But they are coming to realize they cannot be welded together into one great European supernation without the unifying power of the Catholic Church” (member and coworker letter, Nov. 22, 1982).

John Paul II made a habit of being “the first pope ever” to visit certain areas, and his reasons were no secret. He wanted to heal the breach in Europe between the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox churches—a split rooted in a dispute over the infallibility of the pope that goes all the way back to the ninth century. Mr. Armstrong made reference to this dispute: “The Catholic Church is divided between the Roman Catholic Church in the west and the Greek Orthodox Church in the east. The latter has strenuously objected to supremacy of the pope and to the doctrine of papal infallibility. But on this trip we learned in Athens that the Eastern Orthodox church at last is willing to give in on papal leadership, though not yet in agreement on infallibility. I feel sure some compromise or agreement will be reached very soon” (ibid.).

John Paul II spent the rest of his life trying to bring the daughter churches back into the fold. In a May 25, 1995, address, “That They May Be One,” he stated, “How can unity be restored after almost a thousand years? This is the great task which the Catholic Church must accomplish, a task equally incumbent on the Orthodox Church.” But while his life was spent working toward the unity of the Catholic Church, his death was the single greatest catalyst toward achieving that goal. Look at how John Paul’s funeral, the greatest media event in history, brought the world together. Mr. Armstrong’s statements on Catholic unity are right on the verge of coming to pass (see “Returning to the Fold” on page 18). Any actions Pope Benedict xvi will take toward further reconciliation with Protestant and Orthodox religions were made possible by John Paul II.

He Was Right

And yet, on occasion, someone will point out that Mr. Armstrong was not always correct in stating how quickly prophecy might unfold. Remember though, the Apostle Paul believed he would be caught up in the air at Christ’s return as one of “we which are alive” (1 Thessalonians 4:15). When the Apostle John said, “It is the last time [hour],” he truly believed that Jesus Christ was returning shortly. These men, obviously faithful servants of God, were off in their timing by almost 2,000 years.

When the Great Tribulation comes before the return of Jesus Christ, no one will think about the timing of Mr. Armstrong’s comments. They will remember that everything he said came to pass exactly as he said it would in 1934, as well as the words the apostles Paul and John penned so long ago.

How far away does a European superpower seem now? With a Europe-focused conservative new pope, a phenomenon the Trumpet has continually warned we should expect at this time, how probable does it seem that the European superpower will take its final form speedily?

This is not the time to say, as Christ warned against in Matthew 24:48, “My Lord delayeth His coming!”

Far from being wrong in his prophetic statements, Mr. Armstrong has been proven right again and again. He saw the formation of the European superpower on the horizon before anyone else did. He pointed out, decades in advance, that John Paul could be the pope to initiate the reunion of east and west in Europe. In the midst of the Cold War, the headline “Why Russia Will not Attack America!” only ran in one magazine: the Plain Truth. His analysis of world events was consistently decades ahead of those around him. For far more proof of this, please request a copy of our sample Trumpet edition titled “He Was Right,” which illustrates this fact in detail.

Before Jesus Christ came to Earth the first time, John the Baptist was sent to prepare the way. Now, a man in this modern age has prepared the way for Jesus Christ’s Second Coming, which will have a far more dramatic outcome for everyone alive—in fact, for everyone who has ever lived. The announcement given during Christ’s first coming of the good news of His coming Kingdom is about to be realized! And, just as prophesied in Malachi 4:5, the world has been prepared before the coming of that “great and dreadful day of the Lord.”
