“And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.” (Isaiah 29:11-12)
Mr. Gerald Flurry gave a sermon last December 2013, titled: “WHERE THERE IS NO VISION, THE PEOPLE PERISH.” He mentioned a couple of times in that sermon that he felt the 4.8 magnitude earthquake that rattled Edmond, Oklahoma last December 7, 2013, which happened to be the 24th year anniversary of the Philadelphia Church of God. What has been happening to the PCG? Someone seem to be preventing Mr. Gerald Flurry, the last end apostle of God, to know what has been happening inside God’s own Church? He should have known the real reason behind that 4.8 magnitude earthquake; he should have known the real reason behind the sudden increase of earthquakes in Edmond, Oklahoma.
Well, as the prophet Elijah was told that God is not in the earthquakes, but in a still small voice (1 Kings 19:12) – that voice has been warning a prominent leader of the PCG. Yet this leader has kept on ignoring God’s warning and just brushing it off altogether, even instructing his fellows to block off any means (i.e., through emails, texts, printed books, going to The Last End website, etc.) that declares God’s warning message – but WHY? So that the members may worship his will and not God’s will because they are into WILL WORSHIP (Colossians 2:18). In reality, whether this prominent leader realized it now or later, he is actually fulfilling the prophecy about the last end Joshua:
“And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?” (Zech. 3:1-2)
This last end Joshua office is currently being occupied by a leading PCG minister in Edmond, Oklahoma. Well, here are some of the reasons:
1. Notice that this Joshua is a specific person who is under the bondage of Satan in the context of God choosing Jerusalem. Now, why do the 25 leading PCG ministers kept on pursuing the Bricket Wood estate which Mr. Armstrong has already closed because of the spring of 1974 rebellion of the WCG ministers then? And also why Ireland? Who do you think is behind the prodding with Mr. Gerald Flurry to continue with these two places? Is it not Satan through this last end Joshua and his fellows? THE ETERNAL HAS CHOSEN JERUSALEM! Yet this 25 men are choosing another place.
2. The PCG first thought that this Joshua could be referring to Joseph Tkach Sr. But could he be a “brand plucked out of the fire”? He has already died. Or is it his son, Joseph Tkach Jr.? Well, this Joshua is prophesied to be crowned (Zech. 6:11) but only upon repentance (Zech. 3:9-10). This is the reason the throne of David in this last end shall be established in mercy (Isaiah 16:5) – because this Joshua ought to repent towards God:
This last end Joshua and the 24 other leading PCG ministers are the MEN OF SIGN being discussed in verse 8: “Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the Branch.” It was announced before by Mr. Wayne Turgeon sometime in September/October 2013 that there are actually 25 PCG ministers who are directly involved in the work in Ireland. Do you think this is just a coincidence or the actual fulfillment of Ezekiel 8:16-17?
But for now they may not be able to understand this prophecy which these leading PCG men are fulfilling, because for them, this prophecy which has been written in a book is sealed (Isaiah 29:11). Why?
“For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered.” (verse 10)
Imagine, Mr. Gerald Flurry, is God’s anointed one for this last end, yet he said a couple of times during his sermon that he did not know what the 4.8 magnitude earthquake meant even during the 24th year anniversary of the PCG – the question again is WHY? It is because God’s message to him is being methodically kept secret by someone close to him. There is a secret counsel of men inside the PCG which is called the prophesied IRON WALL of the Ezekiel 4 siege! It is composed of 25 leading men that embody the so called wall which is impregnable. But in His appointed time, God shall accomplish His wrath “upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter”:
“So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the Lord. Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it;” (Ezekiel 13:14-15)
Well, this last end Joshua and his fellows may continue to justify themselves and point their fingers again as always to those Laodicean ministers outside the Philadelphia Church of God, but one thing we must consider:
“Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem. …For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.” (Isaiah 28:14, 21)
The PCG ministry in Edmond, Oklahoma is spiritual Jerusalem – the capital and headquarters of the spiritual Jews. Mr. Gerald Flurry is “a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the house of Judah” (Isaiah 22:21). Do you think this is not a prophecy for us, the spiritual house of Judah? God is doing a very strange work, and He is bringing to pass His very strange act. Actually, He is distressing Ariel, the lion and altar of God – the Philadelphia Church of God (Isaiah 29:2).
“Stop and wonder [at this prophecy, if you choose, whether you understand it or not; soon you will witness the actual event] and be confounded [reluctantly]! Blind yourselves [now, if you choose; take your pleasure] and then be blinded [at the actual occurrence]. They are drunk, but not from wine; they stagger, but not from strong drink [but from spiritual stupor]. (v. 9 Amplified Bible).
They may continue to blind themselves and continue to be drunk; anyway, it will come to an end in God’s appointed time. For now, they may SLEEP ON and wait for the actual fulfillment of the prophecies that has been declared to them and to the last end Joshua himself:
“And the angel of the Lord protested unto Joshua, saying, Thus saith the Lord of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.” (Zechariah 3:6-7)
The Zerubbabel office for now is being occupied by Mr. Gerald Flurry; now, who do you think occupies this last end Joshua office? WHO IS HE?
