Global Fascism

They call it Corporatism - they don’t hide it - but Corporatism is just another name for…

Global Fascism

We see organisations, such as the World Economic Forum (WEF), trying to solve world problems – their way. We see big business moving beyond money into the accumulation of power. Then we have the United Nations, who want a world government, imposing their total control over all nations.

Until recently, these three groups were separate – but not any more. Linking up with the United Nations, the WEF is bringing big business and governments together, trying to forge a single world government.

When you add to this mix support and moral guidance from the Pope, are we witnessing the birth of end time Fascism?

It would be dangerous to brush this off as just another conspiracy theory. The WEF, the United Nations and the Pope proudly announce their intentions… it is all documented, it’s not hidden!

Fascism

“Many experts agree that fascism is a mass political movement that emphasizes extreme nationalism, militarism, and the supremacy of both the nation and the single, powerful leader over the individual citizen. And although fascist leaders typically claim to support the Everyman, in reality their regimes often align with powerful business interests.(world101.cfr.org)

Big Business Takes Over

As you read the following article, note the following:

…corporations are more than simply greedy.

They are beyond the money now.

It is “all about the accumulation of power…

Note the attitude of one of the business leaders…

it’s time to FORCE people’s behaviour to change.

BlackRock and Vanguard

While the names BlackRock and Vanguard will be unfamiliar to many, these two financial institutions between them seem to control most of the business world.

“Some of the major players who have been behind the scenes in the recent past are quickly taking very public control over our future. It’s time to stand up and point a spotlight on them. For the last year, we have railed against the two most powerful financial institutions in the world: BlackRock and Vanguard. And by ‘financial institutions,’ we really have to use that label because they’ve gone far beyond simply being the biggest investment management firms with over $10 trillion between them.

They have ownership in nearly 90% of all S&P 500 firms… the idea that there is competition in the marketplace is a clever illusion.(globalresearch.ca)

They now wield extreme levels of direct power over the most crucial industries in the world, including food production and distribution.

First and foremost, we must look at both corporations as more than simply greedy.

They have fully embraced and promoted woke ideologies and progressive values, promoting everything from Critical Race Theory and LGBTQIA+ supremacy to spearheading the push for the destructive tenets of ‘Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance’ (ESG).

They are beyond the money now.

Their existence and continued success are all about the accumulation of power and being at the top of the food chain when The Great Reset is fully realized. They don’t get the same attention as individuals like Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, George Soros, or Barack Obama, but they are in lockstep with the machinations of the World Economic Forum and are almost certainly the driving economic force behind the New World Order.

And lest I lose anyone by invoking ‘conspiracy theories’ about the globalist elites, it’s important to know that everything posted in this article is easily verifiable. We don’t have to delve into speculation because they proudly announce both their intentions and the public-facing components of their plan.

The Warning Went Out!

“Now when the financial structure breaks down, all civilization is going to break down.”
(Sermon - July 7, 1984)

We know this: Food shortages are coming. We’re talking about full-blown Venezuela-level food shortages in which Americans will be standing in line for hours to receive limited supplies from a benevolent government. We’re talking about looting, rioting, and mass chaos. We’re talking about martial law, rampant starvation, and the destruction of western society forever.

These are all necessary events for The Great Reset to happen.

BlackRock and Vanguard have the means and the motivation to make it all happen.

BlackRock CEO Larry Fink says… ‘it’s time to force people’s behaviour to change’. (noqreport.com)

Where The Mega-Rich Hide!

Why is no one from the Rockefeller or Rothschild families listed in the World’s Billionaires list by Forbes? Because they are NOT billionaires, they are Trillionaires.

“When you add in the third-largest global owner, State Street, their combined ownership encompasses nearly 90% of all S&P 500 firms. Vanguard is the largest shareholder of BlackRock. Vanguard itself, on the other hand, has a unique structure that makes its ownership more difficult to discern, but many of the oldest, richest families in the world can be linked to Vanguard funds.” (articles.mercola.com)

World Economic Forum And UN Sign Strategic Partnership

After spending many years growing the WEF, Klaus Schwab now given official credibility – by the United Nations.

“The UN-Forum Partnership was signed in a meeting held at United Nations headquarters between UN Secretary-General António Guterres and World Economic Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab to accelerate the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The partnership identifies six areas of focus – financing the 2030 Agenda, climate change, health, digital cooperation, gender equality and empowerment of women, education and skills – to strengthen and broaden their combined impact by building on existing and new collaborations. The UN-Forum Partnership was signed in a meeting held at United Nations headquarters between UN Secretary-General António Guterres and World Economic Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab.

The leadership across the United Nations will engage in and utilize the different platforms provided by the World Economic Forum to advance impact in the above areas.” (weforum.org)

The Ultimate Goal Of The WEF

When we look at how the WEF operates, it does look very much like a developing tyranny. As the following article points out; “…nobody elected Schwab to any government position, but he’s behind the scenes pulling strings nonetheless.”

WEF operates via fearmongering — about disease and environmental catastrophes, for starters. When the population is controlled by fear, it welcomes authoritarian ‘protections’ like increased surveillance and digital identity systems, introduced under the guise of safety, but which ultimately remove personal autonomy and freedom.

In fact, Schwab wrote, ‘One of the greatest lessons of the past five centuries in Europe and America is this: Acute crisis contributes to boosting the power of the state. It’s always been the case, and there is no reason why it should be different with the COVID-19 pandemic.’

Remember, nobody elected Schwab to any government position, but he’s behind the scenes pulling strings nonetheless.” (clickwooz.wordpress.com)

The World Economic Forum Has Infiltrated Governments And Big Business Around The World.

“The list of corporations, owners and managers who control the WEF is not disclosed and membership can only be inferred indirectly. However, the WEF members do not act alone, but have developed various groups of globally distributed trainees who generally act in accordance with the detailed policies and positions developed and distributed by WEF leadership.

These training programs have been operating for over three decades, resulting in placement, distribution and rapid advancement of many thousands of WEF-trained operatives throughout the world. WEF chairman Klaus Schwab has famously claimed that these operatives have been strategically inserted into key positions in various governments, as well as influential spots in key industries such as media, finance, and technology.” (rwmalonemd.substack.com)

The WEF Is Promoting Global Fascism

The World Economic Forum attempts to advance global fascism – a global corporatism – and they don’t hide it. This fusion between big business and the State is simply fascism! And this is designed to lead to a totalitarian system, where “…you will own nothing and be happy”!

“Dr Robert Malone, one of the inventors of mRNA technology, has long been an outspoken critic of the dystopian worldwide response to the Covid-19 pandemic, particularly the elite’s push for everyone to take the experimental mRNA vaccines. When asked about Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum’s ‘vigor’ towards continuing the pandemic hysteria, Malone did not hold back, even feeling the need to correct the interviewer for being too soft in his description. ‘Vigor is a kind word,’ Malone says with a belly laugh.

From Dr Malone: ‘Heavy-handed totalitarianism would be the word I would use. So let me comment on that a little bit. There’s a quote that’s attributed to Benito Mussolini regarding this logic of public-private partnerships and fusion between the corporatus and the state: He calls it fascism. The originator of fascism explicitly said the same logic: that there should be an alliance, a partnership – a fusion – between the interests of state and global government.

He actually suggested that a better term than fascism, is Corporatism; that’s what the World Economic Forum attempts to advance is a global fascism – a global corporatism – they don’t hide it. They use different words, but I’m pretty dug in on trying to use plain talk, that people understand, and not hiding things behind fancy words.’ In conclusion, Malone reiterates his point as simply as possible: ‘What the WEF is promoting is global fascism’.(thegatewaypundit.com)

A Total Digital-Based Economy

“At the center of it all, Dr Malone has confirmed, is a constant thread: The World Economic Forum. After all, it’s no secret (they’ve said so themselves). The COVID pandemic is part of a broader, more dystopian, agenda, which has been dubbed the ‘Great Reset’ by Klaus Schwab and his World Economic Forum-backed cabal of globalist puppets across the West.

Under the leadership of Klaus Schwab these are the people who have been promoting this universal mass vaccination, and it appears that the logic of that really is about getting digital IDs – getting everybody signed on to a system in which they are digitally identified – as a stepping stone towards a total digital-based economy in which we have digital money…(thegatewaypundit.com)

“90% Of Nations Planning Central Bank Digital Currency”

“A new report from the Bank of International Settlements estimates that up to 90% of national central banks are at least in the planning stages for launching a central bank digital currency (CBDC): ‘Nine out of 10 central banks are exploring central bank digital currencies (CBDCs), and more than half are now developing them or running concrete experiments. In particular, work on retail CBDCs has moved to more advanced stages’. This echoes a March report from the IMF, which claimed over one hundred nations are at least in the planning stages of releasing their own CBDC.

As with all globalist agendas, the push for CBDCs is always part of ‘the current thing’.

First, it was a response to Covid.
Then they could help us halt climate change.
Then they’re a response to the war in Ukraine.

Using that method they have moved from a barely-discussed fringe idea to regular mainstream coverage and 90% of the world trying them out, all within the space of a couple of years.

For those new readers: programmability is a hypothetical feature of digital currency which would allow the issuer to set limits and controls over its use. Essentially, any CBDC would give either the state, the central bank or the corporation issuing the money as wages the power to control how and where the money is spent. Any CBDC amounts to potential third-party control of your money. It’s that simple.” (off-guardian.org)

Klaus Schwab Tells Global Leaders To Collaborate For World Governance

“The time has come for world governments to unite as one and tackle global problems such as climate change, trade, and economic disruption without hindrance or delay, World Economic Forum (WEF) founder and executive chairman Klaus Schwab announced Wednesday. The unelected globalist issued his demand during a keynote speech on the opening day of the World Government Summit (WGS2022) in Dubai, saying the world can only be improved by more government cooperation at more levels.

Referencing the globalists’ everlasting crisis of choice — climate change — Schwab said globally interconnected challenges required global, collaborative responses at a supra-governmental level. The WEF itself has never been shy to predict its own role in an evolving world. ‘Build Back Better’ is also the slogan of the Great Reset and the man who invented it, Klaus Schwab.(breitbart.com)

The WEF Wants UN Treaties

(Or: World Government By Stealth)

A Climate Change Treaty
Marine Protected Areas Treaty
A Treaty to Tackle Plastic Pollution
A Global Pandemic Treaty

…All treaties that will usurp the sovereignty of all 194 member states.

“‘The science is clear: to maximize the health and resilience of the global ocean, at least 30% of it must be protected through a network of “highly” and “fully” protected Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) by 2030,’ writes the World Economic Forum in an article. ‘To achieve this goal, a new treaty for the conservation and management of marine life in the high seas must be concluded to ensure that human activities are managed to prevent significant adverse impacts, with robust oversight mechanisms and provisions to establish fully protected MPAs in the high seas.’

The climate change treaty to save the oceans isn’t the only treaty on the WEF’s agenda, though. They also want a climate change treaty to tackle plastic pollution.

‘Do we need a global treaty to tackle plastics pollution, similar to the one on climate change. Campaigners and a growing number of governments and businesses say we do. Ahead of a United Nations Environment Assembly which could launch talks on a plastics pact, the World Economic Forum heard from a range of experts on why we need a treaty and what it might contain,’ the WEF writes.

Of course, the Forum is also supporting the World Health Organization’s attempts to create a global pandemic treaty that will usurp the health sovereignty of all 194 member states. One can only imagine how international climate change treaties may impact global and national economies and the day-to-day activity of people deemed to have too large of a carbon impact.(thecountersignal.com)

New World Order Needs To Happen Now!

Pope Francis says New World Order needs to happen now with United Nations in charge

“In his latest Fratelli Tutti (Brothers All) encyclical letter, Pope Francis issues a plea for the nations of the world to hand their reins of power over to the United Nations, which Francis says will lead us all into the New World Order. The time is ripe to cement into place a system of global governance that can never be undone, Francis contends.

The best and most suitable candidate, Francis insists, is the United Nations Organization, to which Francis is a known ally. The UN, according to Francis, is currently not strong enough to run the world at full capacity, however. He says it needs to be fully reformed ‘so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth,’ citing text from his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI.” (distributednews.com)

UN Secretary General: Pope Francis Is Great Ally

So now we see the pope “promoting a culture of peace” - giving moral guidance and support to the UN.

“The United Nations Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, said Monday he looks forward to congratulating Pope Francis personally for his important work in environmentalism, multilateralism, and immigration. ‘Through his work, the Pope is contributing to reaching many of our objectives, including the Sustainable Development Goals, combating climate change and promoting a culture of peace,’ he added.” (breitbart.com)

Klaus Schwab Pledges The World Can Find “Salvation At Davos 2022”

Note the biblically phrased warning: “Famine, floods, pestilence, drought, plague, war, and rumors of war.” Are we witnessing the works of the spirit world here?

  1. “Those issues MUST be confronted in Davos…”
  2. “It all comes down to TRUSTING IN THE WEF to find the correct outcomes AND IMPLEMENT THEM AS INSTRUCTED, Schwab and his unelected workers submit.”
  3. “‘…A GLOBAL PLATFORM based on informal, trust-faced and action-oriented co-operation will be ever more relevant, more important than before,’ Schwab declared.”

This could be ignored as the dreams of some politician – if it wasn't for the guest list. He will be addressing many world leaders – who are desperate for answers to some of the world’s biggest problems!

“Famine, floods, pestilence, drought, plague, war, and rumors of war. These are the key issues facing the world today and the invitation-only World Economic Forum (WEF) next week in Davos, Switzerland, is just the place to find the answers provided by the select globalist elites, founder Klaus Schwab declared Wednesday. ‘Those issues must be confronted in Davos…’

It all comes down to trusting in the WEF to find the correct outcomes and implement them as instructed, Schwab and his unelected workers submit.

Just look at the list of those being “instructed”:

“More than 50 heads of state and government will attend the meeting next week, including NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, the WEF lists. Also scheduled to be there are heads of government including Greece’s Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, Ivory Coast Prime Minister Patrick Achi, Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Colombia’s President Ivan Duque Marquez and Rwanda’s President Paul Kagame.

John Kerry, US special presidential envoy for climate, will be in Davos along with 17 environment ministers. Alok Sharma, president of Cop26, is also scheduled to participate. Forty-three finance ministers and 27 trade and commerce ministers will also attend. Kristalina Georgieva, IMF managing director, European Central Bank president Christine Lagarde and director general of the World Trade Organisation Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala are also scheduled to be there.

Schwab warned anyone who sought to trivialise the event or hijack its key messages, including the often-mentioned Great Reset, will be treated with contempt. Contrary voices will simply not be tolerated.(breitbart.com)

This sounds like the words of a fascist dictator! All they need is another big crisis – to bring about their “Great Reset”, and undoubtedly such a crisis will come!

Create A Crisis!

The “Great Reset” cannot come about in a secure peaceful world. People will not give up their freedom easily. However, come a MAJOR crisis, a worldwide financial collapse - looting, rioting, and mass chaos in all nations – fearful people will welcome authoritarian “protections” under the guise of safety.

WEF - “Acute crisis contributes to boosting the power of the state.”

Big Business - “…it’s time to FORCE people’s behaviour to change.”

Are they creating a crisis to bring about their “Great Reset”?

We also have to keep in mind the evil spirits that control today’s world.

“For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12 NLT)

It looks like the “Great Reset” does take place in the near future.

Look what’s coming:

“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name [authority] of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:17)

This is what the “Great Reset” is all about – absolute control over the population!

But World Government Is Not Just A Dream!

What is Jesus Christ’s Gospel?

What is the message God sent to mankind by Jesus Christ?

It is the GOOD NEWS of the KINGDOM OF GOD!

Kingdom means GOVERNMENT!

It is the message of divine government – government by God’s LAWS!

It is the prophetic proclamation of the coming WORLD GOVERNMENT to rule all nations and bring today’s confused, chaotic, war-weary earth PEACE and JOY!

It is the vital, dynamic, powerful, living message of God’s GOVERNMENT, first in individual hearts in God’s true Church, now in this world, later all nations internationally in the WORLD TOMORROW!” (The Good News – December 1984)


You don’t have to believe it!

It will happen, regardless.

It is sure – the world’s only sure hope.(Tomorrow… What It Will Be Like)

Pastor’s Report - 13 May 2022
Commandment With Promise

The Commandment With Promise:

"Honour thy father and mother (which is the first commandment with promise) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth." (Ephesians 6:2-3)

Of all the Ten Commandments the one that deals with family life is commandment number five described by the apostle Paul as "the first commandments with promise". In reality it is the only commandment of the ten that contains a specific promise – "that you may live long on the earth" - so what Paul is saying is not that it happens to be the first of several, but it is primary in importance, being part of the specific ten "phrases" that Jesus Christ delivered at Sinai.

  • Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (Exodus 20:12)
  • Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. (Deuteronomy 5:16)

When we consider much that is wrong with the world today, a great deal of blame can be based on disobedience to this specific commandment.

Count as Weighty

In both cases in the scriptures in Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5, the word translated as "honour" is the Hebrew word Kabad (Strongs 03513) which literally means to be heavy or weighty, so in this context it is encouraging us all to count as meaningful and important whatever our parents have to say. And although this fifth commandment certainly applies to young children, it cannot be for them primarily, because young children cannot read the Bible for themselves until they are older, have a certain amount of learning, and are able to understand its implications.

In Deuteronomy chapter 6, and in what is generally known as the "Shamar" (Hear, O Israel) Moses exhorted the Israelites to keep and TEACH their children the laws that had been revealed to them, so that they would live long on the land:

  • Now these are the commandments, the statutes, and the judgments, which the LORD your God commanded to teach you, that ye might do them in the land whither ye go to possess it:
  • That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son’s son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
  • Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the LORD God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey ...
  • ... And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
  • And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. (Deuteronomy 6:1-3,6,7)

The command is predominantly directed to parents, to adults, who should teach children this commandment, explaining it to them so that they can understand it in an age-related discussion. But this family commandment is taught to our children chiefly by example. How we act and react towards our own parents in particular is reflected back to our children. For instance, if we are dismissive of, or neglect our own parents, then we shouldn't be surprised if in turn, our children react the same way to us. Within childrearing, actions very much speak louder than words.

This can be true even after the death of our own parents or grandparents. We're given an example of God's mind on this aspect in the account of the Rechabites in Jeremiah 35. The initial command given by their ancestor Jonadab was 300 years earlier, and yet the tribe as a whole still honoured and obeyed his command:

  • And Jeremiah said unto the house of the Rechabites, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Because ye have obeyed the commandment of Jonadab your father, and kept all his precepts, and done according unto all that he hath commanded you:
  • Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Jonadab the son of Rechab shall not want a man to stand before me for ever. (Jeremiah 35:18,19)
Tied to the Land

Another thing to notice is how, in both in Exodus and Deuteronomy, the result of obedience would be that the ancient Israelites would live long on the land that God had given to them fulfilling promises given to their fathers many years before. However, those promises of land ownership were not something that would be fulfilled in any kind of nebulous way. It's mentioned in the book of Joshua how the land was allocated specifically according to families, and this was even something re-implemented every fifty years, by being included in the instructions regarding the Jubilee. Having the understanding that this particular parcel or allotment of land is destined to stay within the family, no doubt would encourage a great deal of care and nurturing to take place.

  • And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family. (Leviticus 25:10)
  • In the year of this jubile ye shall return every man unto his possession. (Leviticus 25:13)

The family members would naturally "dress and keep it" improving it for future generations. So it would appear that an automatic result of having the right relationships within the family, where parents and grandparents have the love and respect that is due, is that the land itself benefits and that in turn will benefit those who live on it.

The Converse

But the positive promise within this commandment of "living long on the land" due to obedience, clearly also has the opposite for disobedience found within Scripture - and something we can see with increasing clarity within the world today however much it may be denied. It's not merely carbon dioxide-fuelled "climate change" for example, that is the cause of the disastrous flooding, punishing heatwaves, bush fires, droughts, locust plagues, hurricanes, etc that are devastating communities in countries all around the world, but rather an automatic result of breaking the family and sexual relationship laws that God set in motion, mentioned in Leviticus 18, which includes adultery, homosexuality and bestiality and no doubt would also cover the LGBT scenario we have today:

  • Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
  • And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
  • Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:
  • (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)
  • That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you. (Leviticus 18:24-28)

Being "vomited out" appears to be an automatic response to accepting and even the promotion of these perverted practices - practices that destroy family life - for as God mentioned to Abraham in Genesis 15:16 it was only when the iniquity of the Amorites was finally full, then they too would be vomited out of the land promised to Israel. It is very much the antithesis of "living long in the land" which is captured as a concept by the 5th commandment.

Repeatedly in scripture, we see this end result of disobedience to God and His way of life regarding the sanctity and importance of the family. It's interesting to note that on disobeying their "father" - God - Adam and Eve were cast out of their plot of land. Their delinquent firstborn son Cain, after murdering his brother, was cast out by God to become a wanderer in the land, and at the time of Noah, with "all flesh corrupting His way on the earth", the whole of mankind - apart from 8 individuals - had their lives "on the land" cut short.

So what is the underlying cause of what we are witnessing today in the world? So many try to give totally godless reasons for the current chaos we are witnessing within the natural world, attempting to "suppress the truth in unrighteousness", as they refuse to acknowledge a higher authority over them. The One who created reality, also has the right to dictate morality, and that is the problem! Though this commandment was given to Israel of old, it forms a vital part of the Ten Commandments - God's spiritual law of love as it applies to all mankind - and when this law is disregarded, disdained and rejected, then we can expect dire consequences.

  • For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [suppress] the truth in unrighteousness;
  • Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
  • For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: (Romans 1:18-20)
Society's Crucible

With the exception of Adam and Eve and Jesus Christ's unique birth, every human being who has ever lived owes his existence to the union of sperm and ovum, that has been specifically designed by God to take place within a family context (Mark 10:4-8) This fact makes the family structure the crucible from which each generation of every society originates. When the structure of our families is robust - with each succeeding generation built firmly upon the weighty words of the parents and grandparents, then the resulting society is itself robust. Conversely, when the children have been born and raised in non-family based configurations, many times with absent, feral fathers and young and often promiscuous mothers, the society that is then spawned is weak, ineffectual, and even history tells us it is destined to crash.

A growing problem in today's world is young people committing suicide as they are finding life not worth living - and most of them come from broken homes. No one decides at a very young age that he or she will become a drug addict or alcoholic ... but family problems, divorce, and homelessness are primary reasons for their miserable situation. Also commonplace within society today are reports of child abduction and child abuse, sexual "grooming" via the internet - all guaranteed to mess up malleable young minds, making them in turn incapable of having solid families of their own. Abortion is viewed many times as just another form of contraception - more often than not outside of marriage - but the truth of the matter is that the woman concerned never does fully recover mentally and emotionally from her decision to end her baby's life.

The abject misery and confusion we see today has come about from defunct and non-existent family structures - structures that are destined to lead all mankind into the Great Tribulation - a time such as has never been seen before, and thankfully we'll never see again.

  • And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable ...
  • ... As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths. (Isaiah 3:5,12)
  • For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
  • And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. (Matthew 24:21,22)
Needed to Teach

So how does this affect us - the elect - on an individual basis in God's church today? To answer that question is it vital that we recognise the purpose of our calling, specifically at this end time. As Mr. Armstrong explains very forcefully:

Now I want to give you THE MEANING OF THE CHURCH. The people in the churches of this world haven’t any idea of the why there should be a Church. Why has not God called everybody? Just like in Jordan, they have to teach teachers before they can teach others of these kids. And God has to call and teach teachers before we can teach the others. And they have to be taught before they know how to live in the way to build a right society and a right civilization that will be both happy and productive, and everybody cooperating with everybody. Everybody at peace and enjoying life; and none of the troubles that we’re having in this world today. Do you get the message, brethren? (Why only a few chosen now? June 5 1982)

Not every church member will have been raised in a solid, loving family environment, but that doesn't preclude him or her being able to teach the right way in the future. These 6,000 years of Satan's perverse and bitter rulership has been allowed by God so we can learn what DOESN'T work, as much as what does! As painful as they might be, precious lessons can be learnt and taught from having personally experienced a broken family life and its inevitable repercussions.

When discussing the building of the temple, king David, a man after God's own heart, realised the importance of passing on to his son Solomon, the necessity of obedience to the Way of God - and tied it into a permanent link to the land of Israel:

  • Moreover I [God] will establish his [Solomon's] kingdom for ever, if he be constant to do my commandments and my judgments, as at this day.
  • Now therefore in the sight of all Israel the congregation of the LORD, and in the audience of our God, keep and seek for all the commandments of the LORD your God: that ye may possess this good land, and leave it for an inheritance for your children after you for ever.
  • And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever. (I Chronicles 28:7-9)

Sadly, Solomon didn't stay the course, not counting as weighty the admonition of his father David, but drifted into pagan worship. As a result, his son Rehoboam lost much of the land of Israel as it was divided into the northern tribes under Jeroboam with Rehoboam keeping only Levi, Benjamin and Judah in the south.

The Breadth

When it comes to our teaching role in the Millennium - and having lived a physical life ourselves - we'll easily identify with the natural longing of people to have their families around them, and be able to see not only their children thrive and grow, but their grandchildren also, and even great, great grandchildren! Imagine the stunned delight when we reveal the breadth of the Plan of God ... that we are talking about them having their families around them for ever!

Just as in ancient Israel, keeping this particular commandment resulted in an individual staying on the land which he held as an inheritance, and conversely - if he copied the actions of the nations around him - the land itself would vomit him out, so we'll be teaching a much broader and eternal implementation of the principles involved. We are told in Matthew 5, quoting Psalm 37:11 "... the meek shall inherit the earth". (Matthew 5:5) It is only by being teachable, meek ... honouring, or counting as weighty the words that we - and they - receive from our heavenly Parent ... any of us eventually inherit the earth – our eternal home!

  • As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and for ever. (Isaiah 59:21)

Therefore a major part of our teaching throughout the millennial rule of Jesus Christ, will be to encourage our spiritual "children" to respect and take on board the teaching that we, as the collective bride and wife of Christ, will be giving them ... the spiritual laws and principles that we have learnt - sometimes by bitter experience - in our own physical lives.

  • My son, obey your father's commandments, and don't neglect your mother's instruction.
  • Keep their words always in your heart, tie them around your neck.
  • When you walk, their counsel will lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you, and when you wake up, they will advise you.
  • For their command is a lamp and their instructions a light; their corrective discipline is the way to life. (Proverbs 6:20-23 NLT)

Respecting, honouring and counting as weighty the words of both our human parents and our heavenly Father will not only ease our own physical lives and bring blessings, peace and security now, but will do the same during the millennial reign of Christ (Isaiah 54:13), bringing about a true Utopia on this earth ... and eventually to the rest of God's vast creation (Isaiah 51:16):

  • They will build houses and dwell in them; they will plant vineyards and eat their fruit.
  • No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the work of their hands.
  • They will not labor in vain, nor will they bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the LORD, they and their descendants with them.
  • Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.
  • The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, and dust will be the serpent’s food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain,” says the LORD. (Isaiah 65:21-25 NIV)

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!

Listen to Me, You who know righteousness, You people in whose heart is My Law: …I have put My words in your mouth, I have covered you with the shadow of My hand, That I may plant the heavens, Lay the foundations of the earth, and say to Zion, “you are My people” (Isaiah 51:7,16)
