THUNDERS GROW STRONGER

August 21, 2008

First, before going into the purpose and content of this posting, I would like to announce that the 50th Truth has now been added to The 50 Truths of God that is in the “Publications” section of the Church website.

Postings to this site have been minimal since April. There are several reasons for this, all of which are a matter of God’s will and God’s planning.

There is no purpose being served at this time to warn people of what is coming, as the warnings have already been given (to the degree God has purposed). This has not been done on a massive scale worldwide (although it has been done worldwide) because it only takes a small cross section to reveal the true attitude and spirit that exists throughout this world.

Much of God’s purpose at this end-time consists of revealing (as a true witness) the real attitude and spirit of mankind in this modern 21st Century. With all the technological development of mankind over the past century, God is showing that mankind is the same as he has always been over the past 6,000 years. This is a powerful witness/testimony against mankind concerning the way mankind receives God and those whom He has sent.

There have been no interviews and the advertising being done on the Internet has been reduced dramatically. Only those who are in God’s true Church, and those who were scattered who are responding to God awakening them, as well as those who are new who are responding to God calling them, have been able to understand the revelation of the 50th Truth.

Since things did not happen in the original time frame that was given because God had not given this 50th Truth, those who were responding solely out of fear and desire for self-preservation are no longer seeking God’s help. Those who are skeptics, critics and mockers have only grown bolder in their deceived and misguided confidence. Many who simply never responded fully in obedience to God have become weaker and some have taken a “wait and see” approach and even many in God’s own Church have been shaken and have had revealed to them the danger of not being fully on guard spiritually.

The reality is that all that has been given in the past will still come to pass, but simply a few months later than previously understood. As covered in the 50th Truth that has just been posted, on Trumpets of this year the final countdown for the return of Jesus Christ will have begun, but the world will not begin to respond to God until the Trumpets of the Seventh Seal begin to sound, and most will not begin to be earnest in their response until after the Fifth Trumpet has sounded.

These past few months have revealed the incredible magnitude of complacency that exists in the world. The world’s sense of complacency, lethargy, and ability to deal with reality is rapidly accelerating in intensity and blindness. Indeed, end-time events are going to catch the world fully off guard! Although the Thunders of Revelation have continued to intensify and draw closer, most cannot hear, and many of those who can, choose not to hear them.

The economic health of the world continues to worsen at a horrific rate. However, most choose to focus on the most minuscule crumbs of hope, which they choose to believe will lead to this destructive tide being turned around. Most everyone who is concerned with economic conditions has the basic belief that eventually the economy will turn around and things will become prosperous once again, since they see this as simply another economic cycle for the world. Even gold, oil, and currencies have shifted in the past few weeks to such a degree that many find comfort and encouragement from what they see, but they do not understand that this is a false indicator of the true economic state of affairs. This is only a lull before the storm that leads to a final worldwide economic collapse. Banks, brokerage firms, and other such institutions are about to be plunged into their worst nightmares, but they will not believe this is true until it is too late.

One of the most astonishing events and loudest thunders since 9-11 is the conflict between Georgia and Russia. Once again, the world is blind! There are those who fear what they see, but most people are insensitive and in deep ignorance to these sweeping conditions that will directly affect the Fifth and Sixth Trumpets that are to come. All that is happening in this great event is more firmly shaping the alliances that will emerge as a direct result. This is far greater than 9-11 was in shaping alliances, and this will lead into a horrendously terrifying World War III.

The minds of peoples and leaders in ten European nations are now being molded so that one day soon they will agree to unite as the United States of Europe and it will be at that time that they determine to set their own course and control of the future—through immediate aggression in war. It will be this European union that plunges the whole world into war, and not Russia or the United States.

This is not a time to draw back, become slack, or let down from being spiritually on guard. Everything is rapidly moving forward, and on Trumpets of this year we will have entered the final 1335 days before the return of Jesus Christ and the establishment of the government of God over all the earth.

GOOD NEWS (originally posted June 24, 2008)

It was mentioned in the sermon this past Sabbath that a sermon would be given on Sept. 30th (Feast of Trumpets) that would explain the 50th truth given to God’s Church in these end times. Since some have been pouring out their hearts to God concerning this matter, God is now mercifully granting that this sermon be given this coming Sabbath.

This sermon will explain why the final three and one-half years of tribulation has not yet begun. It will explain why the final sealing of the 144,000 has not yet occurred. It is all very exciting, and this is indeed good news for God’s Church that this sermon can be given. I’m very glad and feel very blessed to know that I can now give that sermon this Sabbath and not have to wait until Trumpets to do so.

NEW TRUTH (originally posted June 19, 2008):

Some have asked why there have not been any recent postings on this site. The answer is, I have had nothing pertinent to report. I have been doing what others are doing: “waiting.”

As I have stated before, I am waiting until July 16 to see whether the Second Trumpet has been blown by that time, which falls within the 90 days I have referenced. In addition, God has been showing me things concerning the First Trumpet that will be carried out throughout the time of the first four trumpets. However, I have also known that I was not yet to be speaking about those things and I am only now beginning to “see” why. It is because this is for a later time.

Since the timing of what I had stated as being the moment when the First Trumpet was blown (April 17), we have seen no clear evidence on a physical plane of the fulfillment of that trumpet, although it has been stated that such things will be revealed throughout the timing of the entire first four trumpets.

Yet, it should be stated again that “nothing” has been seen as evidence on a physical plane concerning this first trumpet, and there cannot be until later in December. So what has happened since April 17? We do clearly see an intensity in the thunders, but only in the thunders. Earthquakes are increasing in magnitude and frequency on a global scale.

The destructiveness from weather is growing far more intense with record numbers of tornadoes. Drought conditions are worsening in some areas of the country, yet others are being flooded. Again, the repetitive nature and frequency of these events is what is important to see. Such events have always been part of the human experience, but the escalation in frequency and heightened magnitude of these events occurring so often is what this thunder is all about.

As far as global economic upheaval, every day there are more reports of serious economic problems in banking, brokerages, large corporations, commodities, transportation, etc. We are now getting very close to a total economic collapse.

Such bad news is becoming so common now that people don’t even seem to take notice, but view it as simply a little glitch that will someday go away and no longer affect us. People are truly becoming complacent about bad news and the true realities of life that are before us all.

Although there is a marked increase in the thunders, there is still no physical evidence in the trumpets. And even though I have stated July 16 as a kind of deadline for the Second Trumpet, I am now deeply convinced that nothing concerning the trumpets will have occurred by that time.

This is not pleasant to have to address, as all of us have planned our lives on such timing. If the second trumpet sounds, with nuclear explosions in port cities, then everything will indeed be fully in line with what I’ve stated in the last interviews and in some sermons. But I do want to state again, I no longer believe that to be the case.

The bottom line is, I must follow what I believe God is showing me. If I have jumped the gun in a couple of interviews and interjected my own understanding into the timing of events, and have thereby been presumptuous, then I will repent and move forward.

I have stated all of this because during last Sabbath’s sermon some scriptures I was reading became magnified in meaning (revealed by God), but what was given to me was not pertinent to that sermon. Each day since this past Sabbath, God has been giving me more understanding concerning the timing of events that I now believe I am to address in the Church, but I cannot do so until after July 16. All this will be explained in sermons after that date.

There is a lot unsaid at this time because there is too much to address in this posting, and these things must be addressed in their full context through sermons that will cover the subject.

The bottom line is that I know I am a prophet of God and God’s minister under Jesus Christ, who is the head of the Church of God, the Body of Christ. As such, I have a job to do and I am going to do it. Some will take great delight in some of this because they do not “see” what God is doing and “why.”

If what I have now been given to see over the last few days (and I am deeply convicted of this already), then there will be a very big issue addressed on Trumpets of this year. It will be the 50th truth (of major basic truths) God has given His Church in this end-time.

Some of you who read these postings have not been listening to the sermons on the Church website (www.cog-pkg.org). It would be wise for you to begin doing so if you want to understand these things and if you want to begin to truly grasp where we are in time. There is so much being revealed on a spiritual plane that cannot be covered in such postings as this, and you should not rob yourself of such insight and experience.

Because of what God has been giving me over the past few days, I now know that I am to resume the trips Laura and I make to scattered areas, and such trips will be planned all the way up to mid-December. All of you need to begin adjusting your thinking as you plan ahead. You need to expand your planning by several months, which will be explained in future sermons.

This end-time is not easy to address in our lives, and it can be very difficult to make adjustments according to what God gives to us, or may even withhold from us, until His timing and purpose. This is often done for our good, our training, and our growth. God knows what we need and when we need it. It is our choice to follow. So as always, “We follow God!”

SECOND WITNESS (originally posted April 18, 2008):

All has been going well with us upon our arrival to Israel. Stories in scripture come alive in a unique way when one visits this land in contrast to actually seeing the backdrop of those people who have followed the Almighty God through time.

I’ve had difficulty getting this post on the website completed, as I have had some strange technical difficulties that we still have not fully figured out. But after a call back to the states, I have been able to use a different method than normal for getting this done. And I will still meet the time I stated on an interview about this announcement being on the 17th. It is still the 17th in the U.S. in a couple of time zones, and if I were to include Alaska and Hawaii, I still have several more hours to get this accomplished. Some have been overly anxious and finding fault with this not having been posted early in the day. This fits in quite well with the sermon that will be given this Sabbath, as God gives plenty of rope to those who seek to find fault with Him and His people.

We are at the very end-time for man’s self-rule on earth. The Seventh Seal has been opened and now the First Trumpet has been blown. You will want to listen to the sermon given this Sabbath to learn much more.

It is an incredible thing to understand what God is doing and how He is doing it at this time. Not only has man’s time of self-rule come to an end, the very blessings that God gave through Abraham on a physical plane, for his descendents, is good to understand. God promised much beginning with Abraham (to him) that continued to be revealed even more through the next three generations (Isaac, Jacob, and Joseph). There were promises made on a physical plane that would take mankind up to the very end of man’s first 6,000 years on earth, and then greater blessing beyond that would be both physical and spiritual. However, the United States has been the recipient of the pinnacle of those physical blessings and prosperity (for this first 6,000 years) that God had promised to Abraham. When those promises had been fulfilled and the time had come for those blessings to be taken away (because of sin), we would be cast into this very time we have now entered.

From the beginning, God has revealed His plan for His Family—Elohim. God worked in and through a family as He began to reveal more about his purpose and plan for all mankind. That family consisted of Abraham and Sarah. At this end-time, we have come back to that greater purpose God is working out for mankind by bringing a close to man’s age and ushering in His age with the following 1,000 years, when the focus of Elohim—the God Family will be everywhere on this earth. He is working through a family once again, as God wants mankind to begin to focus on the importance of family on a physical and a spiritual plane.

Having said that, more will be said in the months to come, but now is the time to publicly reveal the name of the second end-time witness. It is my wife Laura. We are a family through whom God will be working to bring an end to this age and setting the stage (and much more) for the age to follow. Many will mock and ridicule, but as we go forward, this time God will place fear in those who mock Him and His servants. Power has been given to make this so.

The glory and the honor is to God Almighty and His Son, Jesus Christ. And His Kingdom is almost here.
