Standing at A Prophetic Moment Part 2 

     If the Church of God fellowships today are the best for which we can hope, then we must arrive at grave conclusions. This means that we can only hope for results that are subpar and far below the Bible line. If we are honest, then we must realize that the current production among those who claim to be God’s exclusive people is minimal. Furthermore, with all that the False Church of God claims to possess, it is embarrassing that she is so blind. It is claimed that faith produces healing, yet when…

Standing at A Prophetic Moment Part 1 

     The close of a year and the dawn of another cause pause as time is given to reflect on what is past and anticipate what is to come. The year 2019 was fraught with challenges, tests, and opposition, and it leaves no soul the same. The year 2020 will also present unique trials, but God is endeavoring to prepare his people for a particular moment and place in time. If we are honest, obedient, and courageous, we will take hold of God’s vision and walk accordingly irrespective of the required decisions…

The Church That Needs Nothing 

     The time has come to label spirits by name and to cease the diplomatic posturing that only perpetuates problems instead of forming resolutions. For too long conditions around the church are allowed to linger because there is a gross lack of judgment in the camp. Understanding that judgment is necessary to the success of Zion is key because it is the ability to exercise judgment that will determine what is right or wrong. Assuredly, where proper judgment is not exercised there is an allowance…

Bones Bones Bones 

And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him: for he had straitly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you; and ye shall carry up my bones away hence with you. 

Exodus 13:19

 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

Ezekiel 37:11

 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward,…

If It Isn't in Acts, It Isn't Church of God 

 

     Perhaps of late the Light of the Evening has aroused the attention of those who want to abide underneath the dense fog of a Babylonian atmosphere and would like to stand on the shaky scaffolds of their False Church of God structures. The pulpits of late are claiming that to look for the Church of God that rises to the apostolic standard is for those without a vision. It is being proclaimed that the end-time message is to somehow meet “fellowships” or “people” at their level, and then one day God…

Who Will Escape Babylon? 

The following is a quote by Daniel S. Warner:

“If it were not such a solemn thing, it were really amusing to see how many are floundering about on the question of organized divisions in Christendom. They admit them evil, predict their downfall, and then, shrinking from the result of their own admissions, they fly to their protection and raise the hue and cry against those who bring the Gospel of God to bear upon these ramparts of sin” (Byers, Pg. 281).

     Considering the conditions existing in Warner’s…

The Polluted Sanctuary 

Ezekiel 44:5-8
“And the LORD said unto me, Son of man, mark well, and behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears all that I say unto thee concerning all the ordinances of the house of the LORD, and all the laws thereof; and mark well the entering in of the house, with every going forth of the sanctuary.
And thou shalt say to the rebellious, even to the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; O ye house of Israel, let it suffice you of all your abominations,
In that ye have brought into my sanctuary…

Theoretic Church of God 

 

     If anyone has truly located the Church of God in accordance with the standard of the Early Morning and Sixth Seal church ages, then they have located it in theory only. Although this is not to say manifestations of God have not been evident, it is to say that such production is not on the level of the apostolic standard. If the acclaimed Church of God were to actually be honest, she would see how precious little belongs to her. It is evident that there is one thing common to each “fellowship” of…

The Time Is Come (Blow the Church to Atoms) 

“For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” -I Peter 4:17

     Through the last two years, the writer has become increasingly burdened concerning the conditions existing throughout the Church of God-landscape. It seems as if many hold an accurate idea of what God’s church is to be in theory, but precious few know to be reality what they perceive in theory. Essentially much, if not all, that…

The Call Out of False Church of God Part 3 

     The call out of False Church of God cannot be done without properly identifying it.  There are specific characteristics that must be made evident in order to understand the seriousness of forsaking this Babylonian institution.  In this final operation, God is endeavoring to manifest himself in a great way once again through his church. Ultimately, the true people of God must understand where the battle of our day lies and catch a vision of how to engage in this great conflict.  The time has come (and…

The Call Out of False Church of God Part 2 

     One of the most unpopular positions to hold is one that is to the exclusion of all that does not align to God’s Word, and this has been true in any time in the history of the world.  Consequently, many are not really convinced that there is only one church, and there is an emphasis placed on personal understanding and belief rather than a quest to accept the truth of the Word.  Simply put, there is one truth and one church; and any group that is not of the true church is of the false church…

The Call Out of False Church of God Part 1 

     Time is swiftly coming to a close, and the dawning of eternity looms nearer.  The satanic forces of hell’s citadel are ramping up for the final push as the lines are being drawn for the final conflict.  Despite the fogs of confusion and the winds of ecumenism driven by doctrines subject to the interpretations of men, there are only two sides, and every soul will be found on one or the other.  The powers of Gog and Magog surround the camp of the saints for the grand finale in the war of good versus…

32 Things I Learned From Pastor Frank Hampton Jr. 

On June 27, 2018 Pastor Frank Hampton Jr. was called home. I was privileged beyond measure to sit under his ministry for nearly three full years. While I am quite certain there was much more I could have gained by sitting under it for more time, I will treasure the countless instruction he gave during my exposure to his influence. He was a man of God who refused to bow to the ecumenical and devilish spirits of our time. Certainly, he embodied the spirit of consecration and his life of devotion to God and…

The Remnant 

 

     God has for centuries spoken to man through mediators; priest and prophets, teaching and instructing us to holiness, and further warning us of that great judgment day. But now, in this last day, God who spoke through the fathers of old in times past, has now spoken unto us by his Son Jesus Christ; whom He hath appointed to judge the world in righteousness. His grace hath appeared unto all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lust, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in…

What Shall This Generation Do? 

Apostasy rarely begins under the watch of those who fought for a full gospel. Those who have sacrificed, suffered, and stood for the sake of the truth are far less prone to bend their knee to a compromising spirit than those who inherit the benefits of the results for which their elders fought. Accordingly, throughout the history of the children of Israel, and among the circles claiming to be God’s people, there is a recurring cycle throughout the generations of a stand for truth, a falling away, a coming…

What if You Are Wrong? 

      The ranks of Christianity are infiltrated today with multiple notions concerning the acceptability of living before the sight of God. Religion is little more than a catchall for any theological perspective and possesses a supposed unique ability to perpetually tolerate and endorse numerous lifestyles and secular involvements. The religious leaders of the day are entirely blinded to truth and offer a counterfeit religion that equates to no more than religious deception with emotional frills. The…

The Perishing of People 

“Where there is no vision, the people perish…” –Proverbs 29:18 I have found myself often appalled at the astounding lack of understanding and overwhelming ignorance surrounding the many that linger around the ranks of the Church of God. There is little knowledge of church history, prophecy, doctrinal standards, scripture, and the spiritual time in which we are living. However, many are found present at social functions expounding their knowledge concerning the latest athlete or sports team, the last…

Guilty in One, Guilty in All 

“For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.” –James 2:10

 The Supreme Court decision of a few months ago concerning the legality of homosexual marriage stirred my heart, as it indubitably did many others who profess to be Christians. However, I found myself stirred in a much different way than I even anticipated, as I fully expected the decision to go the way that it transpired. The common reaction was that of shock and bewilderment, and admittedly I was…

Pass or Fail 

      In my personal life I am on a quest to become a certified educator in the state where I reside. Often throughout the course of our lives there are applications to be made to our spiritual lives that are derived from our natural experiences. The process of obtaining an education can be likened to obtaining the approval of God. If I am to gain a teaching credential there are explicit standards and criteria that I must meet, or I will not be certified by the state to teach in public education. It…

The Church of Your Choice 

In a time where religious diversity has never been greater, neither has the amount of confusion. Confusion transcends a single geographical location spanning all across the globe. The religious confusion positively shows the innate desire of man to secure satisfaction for his restless soul. The diversity emphasizes how the human race believes in a spiritual reality, but there is less concordance with what is absolutely true of that spiritual reality. There is a single source given to man that provides…
