As many thousands of us will recall of those that were there at the time in the WCG, in 1987 prior to the Passover, Joseph W Tkach Snr travelled the world and told the “members” of WCG that they were then in the time of Revelation 11:1-2 and that the Temple of God was being measured. I personally recognised that he was uttering a true statement and we were indeed under measurement. That was to be the only prophetic utterance he was to give during his ministry. I placed that prophecy on a level with that of Caiaphas saying that one man was to die for the people that the whole nation perish not (Jn. 11:49-50).
This was the correct prophetic time that the prophecy should have been uttered. It was exactly forty years from the Salvation period of the Passover of the Jubilee year in 2027. Forty years is the biblical period of probation and the allowance for repentance of people or a nation before total punishment and dispersal. That was the period given to Judah from 30 CE at the death of Christ to 70 CE which was the end of the Sign of Jonah in its first phase, and the dispersal of Judah and the destruction of the Physical Temple at Jerusalem, and the closure of the Temple at Heliopolis before Abib 71CE.
In this case 2027 is the 120th jubilee and 6000 years from the closure of Eden and the captivity of the world for the Millennial system. WCG was given the first seven years to redress its system and correct its errors or be dispersed. It corrected nothing and in fact allowed its leaders to send it into Trinitarian Protestant Sunday worship.
In 1994 it had relapsed totally and CCG was formed on the New Moon of 1 Abib 1994. The ministry sat in silence for another year. Some joined Global COG and in 1995 the United Church of God (UCG) was formed on old Armstrong era doctrines using the Jewish Hillel Calendar based on the Babylonian intercalations as had Global been formed. Also the minor offshoots kept the WCG doctrines and many were in an idolatrous form of Armstrong worship. They corrected nothing. In 1997, after the scandal and bankruptcy of Global, the Living Church of God was formed which officially marked the end or demarcation of the Sardis era (cf. Rev. 3:1ff).
They altered very little officially except they became more disoriented in their theology and whilst LCG drifted between the Ditheism of Armstrong and the Binitarianism of proto-Trinitarianism from the Worship of the god Attis in Rome and in the Empire, the UCG became totally incoherent to the stage that a group of five senior ministers sat at a church meeting in California and each person had a distinctly different view of the theology of the Nature of God. They ranged from Radical Unitarianism denying the pre-existence of Christ, to Ditheism and Binitarianism, and Trinitarianism, to incoherence. None appeared to understand Biblical Unitarianism. The minister chairing the meeting had to close it down. As a result the Biblical Unitarians there joined CCG and one is now the CCG Coordinator and elder in California.
The 2005-6 was the 19th year and one time cycle and a year of judgment and CCG was cleaned out of the plants and unconverted/uncommitted members. The Churches of God were penetrated by Catholic and Masonic operatives and so also was CCG on a repeated basis but they have been quickly removed.
Many of the ministry do not really know what they believe and are doctrinally unsound and thus are blind guides. They and we all need to study The Eternal Kingdom of God (No 144).
Many of the Churches of God are studying and are coming to grips with the fact that the Hillel Calendar is a complete nonsense and many are leaving the offshoots. That will escalate now. Some of these WCG ministers (e.g. Dave Pack of RCG) have even publicly claimed that Christ and the apostles kept the Hillel Calendar despite the fact that Hillel II was not reigning until three centuries after the death of Christ and the calendar was not issued until 358 CE when the postponements had been developed after the two Babylonian rabbis brought the Babylonian Calendar to Hillel with its set of intercalations which had been formulated in the Seventh century BCE.
One of these WCG elders even told us that there was no Temple Calendar. What ignorance and stupidity. The Temple Calendar is given to us from Scripture and the evidence of its operation in the Temple period is in the paper God’s Calendar (No. 156). The postponements were invented between 344 and the issue of the Jewish Calendar in 358 CE. See the paper The Calendar and the Moon: Postponements or Festivals (No. 195). The Jubilees are identified from the Bible texts and are identified in the paper Reading the Law with Ezra and Nehemiah (No. 250).
Judah has done its utmost to frustrate the plan of God and His Calendar with its traditions and the WCG adopted their heresies and corrupted the faith in the Twentieth century. Their corruptions are explained in the paper Distortions of God’s Calendar in Judah (No. 195B).The WCG claims that Judah had the oracles of God is uninformed anti-biblical nonsense. See the paper The Oracles of God (No. 184).
In 2015 we came to the 29th year of the Forty year period of Measuring the Temple (No. 137) which is the year of Divine Judgment. In this year God began to deal with and remove the ministry of the Churches of God. The calendar also became a central issue as it marked the tetrads and the eclipses in 2014 and 2015 with the cut off point at Tabernacles 2015 and the tetrad when the ministry began to be struck down with serious and many with fatal illness. Examples are seen in multiple churches.
This issue will proceed now to the New Year of Abib and then the Hillel system will be a month out. This time God will not simply ignore it as the second Passover and with the offshoots keeping the feast in the Eighth month. From this time onward God will begin to deal with all people in all churches and also the ministry will begin to be removed and die and the people will be snatched out of their hands in accordance with prophecy. The ones that are brain dead and continue to keep the Hillel Jewish Calendar will be removed from the First Resurrection along with the Ministry.
Over the next ten years and from 2016 to 2024 we will see the witnesses get here and they will begin by clearing the Temple Mount of heresy and their constructions and areas both Jewish and Muslim. They will then deal with the Rabbinical priesthood and their followers. In the same way God will deal with the ministers of the offshoots and their followers with the plagues of Egypt until they repent.
There will be no place of safety for anyone involved in these heresies until all of the people repent. (See the paper The Place of Safety (No. 194)).
We will all know what calendar we should be keeping and we will all know what the worship of the One True God means. Ditheists and Binitarians will be struck just as will all Trinitarians and Atheists and all other idolaters including Muslims, Buddhists and Hindus.
Exactly 1264 days after the Witnesses arrive and 3.5 days after they are killed Messiah will come in glory for the First Resurrection of the Dead (No. 143A) and the rulership of the world. If you wish to be in that resurrection repent and change your beliefs. Get rid of Hillel and keep the Temple Calendar and worship the One True God. Those praying to Jesus Christ will die just like the rest. Do not rely on the ministry of WCG as they are false teachers and part of a false system that is dead and spewed from the mouth of God just as the SDA system and the COG (SD) and the others have been. They will begin to die before your eyes.
The coming of the Messiah will, by prophecy, not be before Trumpets 2019 and he will be here in order for the last period of the Vials of the Wrath of God to be over before Tabernacles 2024 so that the Treble harvest of 2025 can be completed in accordance with God’s law. Be prepared now for Passover 2016 as the period from Abib 2016 to Trumpets 2024 will be the toughest the world has ever seen. See the papers Advent of the Messiah Part I (210A), Advent of the Messiah Part II (210B) and Wars of the Last Days and the Vials of the Wrath of God (No. 141b).
