November 11, 1949 Co-Worker Letter. Why Did God Let Us Win WWII Despite our National Sins?

The answer? So The Radio Church of God Could be Founded!

This bit of propaganda from the pen of Herbert Armstrong is striking in that he tries to convince his readers that the church he founded will have a future falling away. He wrote:

“But Christ foretold a turning away from His Message. He said MANY FALSE TEACHERS would rise and mislead nearly all.”

What he couldn’t have known is that he himself would plant the seeds of destruction by appointing Joseph Tkach as his successor.  So much for Herbie being a prophet.

Long Term Prospects for the Churches of God

Most people in the Churches of God (COGs) probably still think that the end of the age is just a few years away. However, Herbert Armstrong said that in about 1930, which is about 80 years ago. If he was that far off then, the COGs today could be just as wrong. The end could still be a long long way off. Let’s take a look at what the world and the COGs will probably look like in another 10, 20 or 80 years.

Backtrack. The End is NOT Here!

It seems that everyone who scrambled aboard the David Meade bandwagon wasn’t guaranteed a smooth ride. Another trustee of Gods wishes and desires has disappointed us!

The end is still nigh — just not as nigh as it was earlier this week, a Doomsday writer says.

David Meade, who claimed the world is ending Saturday when a mysterious planet collides with Earth, is now backtracking on the calamitous claim.

Meade said the world won’t end on Sept. 23 after all, but instead Saturday will only mark the beginning of a series of catastrophic events to occur over several weeks.

“The world is not ending, but the world as we know it is ending,” he told the Washington Post. “A major part of the world will not be the same the beginning of October.”

Meade said his prediction is based on verses and numerical codes found in the Bible, specifically in the apocalyptic Book of Revelation. He said recent events, such as the solar eclipse and Hurricanes Irma and Harvey, are omens of the approaching apocalypse.

The significant number is 33, according to Meade.

“Jesus lived for 33 years. The name Elohim, which is the name of God for the Jews, was mentioned 33 times [in the Bible],” he said. “It’s a very biblically significant, numerologically significant number. I’m talking astronomy. I’m talking the Bible…and merging the two.”

Sept. 23 is also 33 days since the Aug. 21 solar eclipse.

From Faux news

Maybe I’m naturally oversensitive, or maybe someone just slipped me decaf coffee this morning, but David Meade has worked himself into a lather over this misguided idea that he understands the difference between theology and science fiction.

Any meaningful analysis of this prophecy must allow for the fact that the first lies that David told us were relatively benign. Still, they have been progressing. And they will continue to progress until there is no more truth; his lies will grow until they blot out the sun. Nature has equipped another puny creature, a joker, with a means of making himself seem important.
