Feast Of Tabernacles Messages

So just what exactly IS the WARNING to God's people today, and WHAT are we to do?

The information on this website contained under the page entitled: "THE ENEMY WITHIN", is primarily for information purposes only, but does also help to warn us and be more aware of our surroundings.

But the remainder of this website and the messages contained therein, are serving as a warning and a WAKE UP CALL to God's people, if they will only listen and heed.

So what specifically are we to do? The first thing to do at this time is clearly written in God's Word, and it's one of Christ's last admonitions to us all.

Notice Revelation 3:19 which states: "As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and REPENT."

There is much instruction in that one verse that ends with the command to REPENT, or turn back from something.  We now know that "something' is the Laodicean condition of being self-right, or let US the people decide for ourselves.

But Christ says those He loves, He rebukes and chastens. In other words He CORRECTS them. Correction is not always easy to receive or handle. It goes against our "human nature".  But if we have God's Spirit, and are trying to subdue our human nature and be conformed to God's nature or character, then "correction" should indeed be welcomed into our lives!

Christ also says in the above verse, to be ZEALOUS.  Many of God's people today think they are zealous, but it is for the WRONG reasons! Why else would Christ spew out an entire era? We need to be zealous for the RIGHT reasons, based on what God has revealed to us here in the end time through His faithful servant - Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong.

Therefore Christ says to REPENT. As it says there in Jeremiah 6:16 we need to seek the old paths and STAND (or stay or hold fast) therein. This verse says that this is the GOOD WAY, and we are to WALK IN it.  THEN and only then will we find rest for our souls (lives).    

Listen to the words of the watchman as written in Isaiah 21:12 which says: "The watchman said, 'The morning comes, and also the night. If you will inquire, inquire; RETURN! COME BACK!'".

This is a call and warning to return to and come back to the foundation and truth restored to God's people in the end time through God's end time Zerubbabel!

God promises protection to His faithful flock from the coming great tribulation. We have been taught this for years, and it is soundly based on God's Word. How many will be in that place of safety? Only God knows, but it does not look like very many. The Bible clearly indicates that the majority of God's people will go into the tribulation in order to qualify for His Kingdom. They have to qualify as martyrs! But it does NOT have to be this way.

Christ's last admonition to His people before they fell away from the truth in the Laodicean era, was given just before that era comes, DURING the Philadelphia era. That "glorious" era, at the end of which God's apostle was used to set the Church BACK ON TRACK.  For the last 7 years or so of his life, Mr. Armstrong focused on getting the Church back on track doctrinally and focused on preparing us for the Kingdom of God.

And it was to this era that Christ says in Rev. 3:11: "Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown."

So the Laodicean era is told to repent and turn back to something! Return back to what WE HAD in that previous era, that Christ says will enable us to attain our "crowns" if we would only hold fast to it!

So the message is simple. To REPENT. It's a simple message, but apparently so hard for many to do.

But the message will be magnified and amplified. It will be more direct and blunt as we approach the doors of the tribulation. Israelites (physical and spiritual) are hard headed and have grown dull of hearing.

The message, which applies to every single one of us,  will be clear and strong for those who have ears to hear:

Repent of your ways, or perish IN your ways!

We are almost out of time.
