ARISE YE, AND DEPART!

Passover this year may prove to be one of the most significant Passover over the past many years. It is even made special by the heavenly signs that will appear before and during the Passover time.   There will be a full solar eclipse on March 20 and a blood moon on April 4.  These two heavenly signs are mentioned in Joel 2:31 as harbingers of how close we are to the coming of the great and terrible Day of the Lord.

“The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.”

Will there be some very significant if not one that may be aptly called an earth shaking event on Passover this year?  We don’t know for sure but if there’s any, it could be something that would lead us closer to the Day of the Lord.  Could it be the fulfillment of Zech 14:2?  It may or may not be, but that is not the main reason for this article.  The thing is, Passover 2015 is just around the corner and there is an important question that needs to be answered before that very important day in God’s calendar arrives.

DOES IT MATTER TO GOD WHERE OR IN WHICH CHURCH YOU KEEP PASSOVER THIS YEAR? 

In the past so many years, I kept Passover with the PCG up to last year, 2014.  But this year, I definitely won’t keep it with the PCG anymore.  After all the awareness, the knowledge and understanding that God has given us about what has gone wrong in the PCG, I cannot anymore go back there just for the sake of observing what others call the “rituals” that go with the  ceremony.  I would be willing to keep Passover at home if need be.  Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong has made provisions and has written instructions on how to keep Passover at home for those who have no congregation to attend.

When I was new in the PCG, there was this member who wasn’t contented with simply keeping Passover in the privacy of his own home, despite the instructions given to the few of us in the Philippines  by the then Regional Director, Mr.  Colin Sutcliffe.  He said that he can’t keep the Passover without observing what he called the “ritual” of footwashing and so he thought he will just attend Passover in a WCG congregation since he wasn’t disfellowshipped yet.  In my mind, this man was kind of confused.  He thought it was fine with God for him to go back to a sinning Church just so he can participate in a footwashing ceremony.  He disregarded the RD’s instruction which is rank disobedience to God’s government and he joined himself again with a Church that has gone a whoring.

So here we are again in a similar situation though a bit worse.  Why worse?  It is worse now because the PCG ministers under Mr. Gerald Flurry are causing the people of God to go astray even while he sits in his office and nobody tells him what’s going wrong.  They are rebelling against God’s government and keeping their rebellion covered up with lies and deceit.  It’s like they have been building up a wall of vanities and lies which they daubed with untempered mortar (pretenses) as stated in Ezekiel 13:8-11:

“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; BECAUSE YE HAVE SPOKEN VANITY, AND SEEN LIES, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD.  And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.  Because, even because THEY HAVE SEDUCED MY PEOPLE, saying, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed it with untempered morter:  Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.

Thankfully, God has been exposing those vanity and lies with a spiritual stormy wind, using His very elect who are behind the Last End Work.  The wall has been broken and God declares this in Eze 13:13-14:

“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it. 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.”

God has exposed that there are 25 PCG ministers who make up the core of the group of rebellious ministers who do their crafty job under Mr. Gerald Flurry’s nose.  They are the ones identified in Eze 8:16 as the men in the INNER COURT of the Temple.  There is no other inner court in God’s Church today but the PCG.  If the PCG will claim that these are WCG ministers who have become ministers of the Grace Communion Church as Andrew Locher stated in his Bible Study on ‘’The Resurrection Was Not on a Sunday,’’ they must be denying that the PCG is the inner court!  That’s a grossly embarrassing comment coming from an HQ minister.

What did Eze 8:16 says about those 25 men?  They turned their backs on God which is shameless, brazen rebellion against the Almighty God!  What made it even worse is, as they turned their backs on God, they are facing the east and worshipping the sun!  What an abomination! The picture painted by Ezekiel is symbolic and how it is being fulfilled is equally nauseating.  They turned their backs on God by abandoning the Work of God in Jerusalem and turn to the modern day Samaria, the United Kingdom to pursue their own VANITY AND FALSE VISION OR LIES.  They are following the example of Jeroboam who rebelled against the established government in Jerusalem and established his own center of government and religious worship in Samaria as king of the northern kingdom.  After the Assyrian invasion and captivity of Israel, Jeroboam’s counterfeit religion was later transplanted in the lands which became the United Kingdom of today.  On this account, Druidism and its offshoots became so well established in this part of the world.  Today’s Samaria is now in England and for the PCG, it is in Warwickshire, England where  Edstone Hall is located.  Warwickshire is an important part of the Kingdom of Witches in the UK.  http://warwickshirewicca.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/kingdom-of-hwicce.html

With that brief background, we can see that it is no coincident that the HQ ministers have become so enamored with Riverdancing or Irish dancing.  All the stage musicals performed in the Auditorium had Irish Dancing as a main feature.  Irish dancing is a dance which is basically of pagan origin and is practiced by the Druids in their worship of the oak tree and the sun.  Isn’t that a loathsome abomination in the eyes of God?  Isn’t it a fulfillment of Jer 7:30?

“For the children of Judah have done evil in my sight, saith the LORD: they have set their abominations in the house which is called by my name, to pollute it.”

GOD TELLS US NOW THAT THE PCG HAS BECOME POLLUTED

In fact the prophecy of Isaiah chapter 1 applies to the PCG of today more than to any other Church era.  God is even comparing the Church today to Sodom and Gomorrah which expresses God’s anger at the sins of Judah or the PCG.  If not for the little remnant doing  the Last End work, everyone in the PCG will fall victim to the deceptions which the deluded ministers are promoting.  Then everyone will be included in the desolation that will follow.

Isa 1:9  Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.

Isa 1:10  Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

Isa 1:11  To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.

Isa 1:12  When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?

Isa 1:13  Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.

Isa 1:14  Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.

God is very specific about what He feels with the Feast days that the PCG observe.  He says that He hates them and that they are a trouble to Him!  Could we be more righteous than God by thinking and saying that those words don’t apply to the PCG?  Is God wrong about his thoughts concerning the 25 men in Eze 8:16 who are in the INNER COURT?  Is God just pretending in saying that He has chosen Jerusalem?  Is God being insincere in saying that Jerusalem is above His chief joy?  Is he wrong about charging the last end Joshua with the sin of turning his back on Jerusalem in Zec 3:1-3?  Is God wrong about His charge that the house which is called by His name has been polluted with those abominations that go with the stage musicals performed in the Auditorium?

What has become of the PCG ministers?  They have become Idol worshippers.  They have become like the priests of Baal in God’s eyes.   Would you still be willing to partake of the Passover symbols being served by an idol priest?  Will God listen to his prayers when he ask God to bless the symbols?  God is even weary of hearing the prayers of the people, especially the ministers whose hands are full of blood with the way they have been slaying numerous members of the PCG spiritually!

‘’And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. ‘’ (Isa 1:15)

If God will not hear the prayers for blessings on the Passover symbols by the officiating minister, would it not render the whole ceremony of no value to God?

Would anyone still want to keep Passover and the Spring Holy Days in the PCG if you know that God hates them?  God can’t tolerate it anymore?  So why would you still continue there when God is already providing an option.  Here’s what you can do as God says:

Isa 1:16  Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;

Isa 1:17  Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow.

Isa 1:18  Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

Isa 1:19  If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:

Isa 1:20  But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

God is going to make sure that destruction will come upon the rebellious ministers and the members who follow them in their ways.  He also says that they will be ashamed of what they have done – turning their backs on God and subtly introducing pagan practices like worshipping the oak tree and the sun

Isa 1:28  And the destruction of the transgressors and of the sinners shall be together, and they that forsake the LORD shall be consumed.

Isa 1:29  For they shall be ashamed of THE OAKS which ye have desired, and ye shall be confounded for the gardens that ye have chosen.

Isa 1:30  For ye shall be as an oak whose leaf fadeth, and as a garden that hath no water.

GOD TELLS THE FAITHFUL REMNANT OF SPIRITUAL ISRAEL TO COME OUT OF  THE PCG

More specifically,  God is saying in Micah 2:10 that the PCG has become polluted that God’s faithful must already come out of it to avoid the destruction that will come upon those who takes into themselves of the pollution in this church.

Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.”

You need not worry what will happen if you obey that instruction.  It’s from God.  He will not let you down or leave you in the middle of nowhere.  God promises to take care of you.  He says in Micah 2:12 that He will gather you, the REMNANT OF ISRAEL as sheep into His sheepfold.

“I will surely assemble, O Jacob, all of thee; I will surely gather the remnant of Israel; I will put them together as the sheep of Bozrah, as the flock in the midst of their fold: they shall make great noise by reason of the multitude of men.”

God will gather the REMNANT OF ISRAEL and bring them to the Place of Safety at the appointed time.  God wants to save you from all the troubles that will soon explode in the world scene.  World Wars III is already here whether you believe it or not.  ( http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Jordans-king-calls-fight-against-ISIS-third-world-war-392645 )  Jerusalem is about to explode once the brotherhood between the US and the Jews in the middle east is broken.  It will be broken soon, as prophesied in Zec 11:14.

Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands (GRF), that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.”

God wants to save you not just from the terrifying calamities and worldwide disasters coming with the dreadful Day of the Lord, but He wants to bring you to birth in His Family!  God is not willing that the crowns He has prepared for each one of you will be lost because of your fear of a man.  God is extending His loving hands to you now. He wants you in His Family.  Are you going to refuse Him?

May your eyes be opened to see the love of God being extended to you now and for your own sake and your children’s sake, heed God’s instruction in  Mic 2:10.

 Arise ye, and depart; for this is not your rest: because it is polluted, it shall destroy you, even with a sore destruction.’’
