BIBLE SCRIPTURES SHOW WHAT TIME WE ARE IN

And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God…”(Revelation 11:1)
(For more information on “the temple of God” please read Herbert W. Armstrong’s article: Why The Church?)
In 1977, Mr. Armstrong died from total heart failure, with men conspiring in the wings to take his place as leader of the Worldwide Church of God. BUT THEY WERE FOILED and God miraculously raised his chosen apostle and end-time Elijah BACK TO LIFE!!!!
From that point on, Christ began leading His apostle MORE POWERFULLY THAN BEFORE, and guiding him to CLEAN UP THE WORLDWIDE CHURCH OF GOD, to MEASURE THE SPIRITUAL TEMPLE OF GOD, to make READY the fiance Bride of Jesus Christ, whom is going to marry the Church upon His second coming.

"God brought me back to life…FOR A PURPOSE."

Quote from Co-Worker & Brethren Letter, April 16, 1979 Author: Herbert W. Armstrong   The Worldwide Church of God shall have made herself READY! Today, Jesus Christ is leading His Church through His anointed apostle Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. God hasn’t changed His mind. He chose His apostle FOR A PURPOSE. We, the membership of the Church, were called by God FOR A PURPOSE as well! The Worldwide Church of God BACKS and SUPPORTS Mr. Armstrong, Christ’s anointed apostle! In Zechariah 4, is pictured ONE CANDLESTICK, or ONE CHURCH,  with 2 apostles, 2 anointed ones feeding the Church the “golden oil” picturing the Holy Spirit of God. If we compare Zechariah 4 with Revelation 11, we find that the MAIN WITNESS is one of these 2 anointed ones. Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong is the first anointed one. The Main Witness is the second anointed one. They are over the Philadelphia Era, or CANDLESTICK. These 2 anointed ones of God, are feeding the same WORLDWIDE CHURCH OF GOD, the very same candlestick! Today, God’s Church is making herself ready, studying God’s Word, and the apostle’s teaching, making sure he/she is walking according to God’s Word. Mr. Armstrong was raised for a PURPOSE! Are you going to allow Christ to use the apostle to correct you, to teach you, to build you up in Jesus Christ, into the glorious TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD? The second anointed one of Zechariah 4, the main witness of Revelation 11, will be an apostle. God gives power unto His next apostle to preach, when their commission begins in Jerusalem at the beginning of the Great Tribulation. Look to the apostle Paul’s example in God’s Word. When God called him into the body of Christ, Christ Himself trained him. He then worked in the Church under Barnabas, but was not yet standing in the office of apostle. When God’s time for him came, and it did, God raised up His chosen apostle to do the job! That time for the Main Witness is in the soon future! But for now, we are under the first anointed one of Zechariah 4, called to BACK AND SUPPORT GOD’S ANOINTED APOSTLE- Herbert W. Armstrong! And we must be found SO DOING! That is the PURPOSE of the Worldwide Church of God! “God brought me back to life from complete heart failure and death, in August 1977 FOR A PURPOSE. That PURPOSE is to FINISH proclaiming His Message around the world — to be used in setting His Church back on His track — and in leading you brethren of His Church into a condition where you are finally PREPARED, and MADE READY, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but HOLY — the Bride of Christ who shall have made herself READY! ” Quote from Co-Worker & Brethren Letter, April 16, 1979 Author: Herbert W. Armstrong]]>
