JOHN MACDONALD AND THE SICKNESS OF EPHRAIM IN PROPHECY

Dear brethren in the PCG,

It has been announced last Sabbath, 7 February 2015, that John Macdonald has been relieved of his post as Regional Director and that HE WILL STILL CONTINUE in the Ministry in a lower capacity as Associate Pastor.  It was also announced that Mr. Alex Harrison, an Evangelist , will be taking over the post vacated by John Macdonald.   There was no mention of where John Macdonald will serve as Associate Pastor.  The letter that was read in the announcement was purported to have been written by the Pastor General, Mr. Gerald Flurry himself which is hard to believe.  That’s not the way Mr. Gerald Flurry would have written that letter announcing the said administrative changes.  I suspect that the letter read at services is a mere fabrication of the rebellious ministers in PCG who are acting like GRF doesn’t exist anymore.  They are fulfilling the prophecy in Hosea 10:1-3:

Israel is an empty vine, he bringeth forth fruit unto himself: according to the multitude of his fruit he hath increased the altars; according to the goodness of his land they have made goodly images. Their heart is divided; now shall they be found faulty: he shall break down their altars, he shall spoil their images. For now they shall say, We have no king, because we feared not the LORD; what then should a king do to us? (Hosea 10:1-3)

Verse 1 shows the PCG as an empty vine which is not producing the fruits of God’s spirit.  What they are producing are the fruits of their own self-centered ambitions and desires connected to a Work  of their own but not God’s.  How can it be God’s Work they are doing when they have turned their backs on God (Eze 8:16).  Will you ever wonder why there are no more new revelations being given to the PCG today?  Will you ever wonder why it is the children who are writing most of the articles in the PCOG websites and PCG publications?  It is the children who are now given the job to mold the minds of the older people in the Church and this is again fulfilling another prophecy in Isaiah 3.

“For, behold, the Lord, the LORD of hosts, doth take away from Jerusalem and from Judah the stay and the staff, the whole stay of bread, and the whole stay of water, The mighty man, and the man of war, the judge, and the prophet, and the prudent, and the ancient, The captain of fifty, and the honourable man, and the counsellor, and the cunning artificer, and the eloquent orator. And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. (Isaiah 3:1-4)

God has taken away from Jerusalem (PCG HQ) and from Judah (PCG congregations) the kind of spiritual food that members used to enjoy in the earlier years.  He has also taken away the wisdom , counsel and prudence of real godly leaders from the ministry for they have become rebellious toward God.  In their place, the ministry put their children in the position of men who would mold the minds of the people, young and old, through their empty writings.

By the way, to substantiate my suspicion about the letter on the reorganization, please read the old letter of Mr. Flurry below announcing Mr. Harrison’s reassignment as Regional Director in place of Mr. Russell Williams.  It is very detailed and very well explained not like the way the announcement was made about John Macdonald’s need to move over.

GRF LETTER TO AU 012705

Why make such a sudden unexpected move?  The excuse that the territory once held by Max Rumler was too big is unacceptable.  It couldn’t be about physical health limitation.  John Macdonald is a lot younger than Mr. Harrison.  Besides, he seems to be having a good time doing a lot of travelling and you can see it in his physical appearance.  He has no complaint about health.  He is physically fit and strong as an ox.  He has no problem managing his job.  In fact he loves doing micro management and dislikes delegating.  He loves being on top of everything, making all decisions small and great by himself.  He loves making decisions even for member’s personal lives that’s why people even get questioned when they are not seeking counsel. His son is following the same style of running people’s lives that makes them feel uneasy if they do not consult with Kirk about the smallest matters, like lending a few pesos to someone who is borrowing money for transportation fare.

Obviously,  John Macdonald is running away from his culpability over the death of Liza Columna and he is avoiding getting dragged into a court case which has the potential of greatly humiliating himself, his family and worse of all the entire leadership of the Philadelphia Church of God.  Imagine a John Macdonald behind bars and think of how other COG groups will be feasting on the issue.  Imagine how it will cause the name of the PCG to be trodden underfoot by all those who have been impacted by the abusive ministers of the PCG who destroyed the lives of so many people around the world through the hasty, unjust  and uncalled for administering of the NO CONTACT POLICY.  Imagine the effect on people like the parents of the late JANET DE GENNARO whose daughter committed suicide because of the harshness of PCG ministers.

See http://www.exitsupportnetwork.com/mike_ep/story/devast.htm ;

https://thelastendbookofremembrance.com/2014/08/23/be-astonied-one-with-another/

Imagine how it will seriously impair the name of the PCG which have not seen any growth in membership for so many years.  There will be no more new members coming in and you who remain in the Church will just rely on all kinds of FUND RAISING and begging for money from people outside the church to provide funds for the ambitious projects of the ministry like buying brand new Toyota Fortuners for your Australian ministers or a new property for the Church.   Then all the remaining poor people who are still in the membership and who would need financial assistance to attend the Feast and those who need third tithe assistance will have to go or get suspended to reduce on cost.

John Macdonald is running away from further getting exposed.  He has been terribly exposed and this is something prophesied.  Let’s take the time to examine the scriptures.  Isaiah 47 is actually about John Macdonald and what he has been building inside the PCG.  He has been building a church within the Church and God calls this church, the VIRGIN DAUGHTER OF BABYLON.  This subject is extensively discussed in our article in our new website:

http://lightofthegentiles.com/2015/01/11/john-macdonald-satan-coming-in-the-flesh/

“Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.” (Isaiah 47:1)

This verse is a prophecy about John Macdonald’s being removed from his throne as Regional Director.

“Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.” (Isaiah 47:2)

This verse talks about his demotion and the embarrassment that go with it.  It pictures a woman like a queen who was removed from her throne and made to work like a slave in the kitchen, grinding grains into flour with the millstones.  It also talks of stripping her of her royal garment and exposing her well kept private parts, her legs and thighs.

“Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.” (Isaiah 47:3)

This verse talks about exposing the woman’s nakedness.  That word ‘’nakedness’’  is H1672 in Strongs which literally means the pudenda or the outer part of woman’s sex organ.  This means exposing  John Macdonald’s most guarded secrets!

“No man, when he hath lighted a candle, covereth it with a vessel, or putteth it under a bed; but setteth it on a candlestick, that they which enter in may see the light. FOR NOTHING IS SECRET, THAT SHALL NOT BE MADE MANIFEST; NEITHER ANY THING HID, THAT SHALL NOT BE KNOWN AND COME ABROAD.” (Luke 8:16-17)

The Liza Columna drowning issue is a secret that John Macdonald has been keeping for 6 years!  And this is not just about John Macdonald.  There are other people involved in the cover up.  Max Rumler pleaded with Lourdes Columna to keep it a secret which she did for as long as he was alive.  Pedrito Cara, who noticed that the NBI chief and agents were present in the interment, persuaded Lourdes not to give in to her relatives’ request to take up the matter with those authorities.  Thankfully, Lourdes kept all records of the incident including a copy of the letter she sent to Mr. Gerald Flurry though Mr. Mark Nash.  It’s good she was not told to burn those records.  However from the looks of it, Lourdes’ personal letter did not make it to its destination.  All communications to Mr. Gerald Flurry passes through personnel who screen every mail or email for GRF.  Letters containing sensitive matters are segregated and passed on to the final screening minister for approval if the same may be given to GRF. Raniel Alexis Padua knows this very well. Just ask him.

So Mr. Alex Harrison is coming to see you.  What will he do in the Philippines?  What do you think is his purpose?

Those who have been in the Church since the early beginnings of the PCG in the Philippines know Mr. Harrison very well.  He is a very charismatic personality and it’s very easy for him to win the hearts of the people.  That is if you will continue to look at the man!  Do you think Mr. Harrison can still bring back the good old days in the PCG church wide?  Can he get all the 25 men of Ezekiel 8:16 to give up Edstone?  Can he make them go back to doing God’s Work in Jerusalem?  Can he get rid of the paganism in the PCG?  Can he remove the idolatrous practices being promoted in the PCG like devoting hundreds of hours to practices for stage musicals which deprives members involved in those theatricals time with God in personal bible study, fasting, prayer and meditation?  Another idolatrous practice now famous in the Philippines is devoting so much time for sports and socials.  In the past months and year, brethren in QC and Angeles were like forced to participate in sports tournaments like basketball, volleyball, marathon and the socials following each event.  This takes so much of the member’s time in practices besides the weekend events.  A person who works 5 days a week who barely has no time to do personal chores like doing the laundry, pressing clothes and cleaning up his or her living quarters is being deprived of having some quality time with God.  This is PLAIN IDOLATRY!  When you put something between you and God, you are committing idolatry.  And now the latest sports program takes up even more of your time.  Preaching Elder Kirk Macdonald have embarked on a Triathlon program for the Church and members have been pouring much of their time in the DAILY PRACTICE SESSIONS with swimming, biking and running!  Where now is God in your daily and weekly schedule?  Even speaking about sporting activities on the Sabbath is now encouraged!  Deacon Nathaniel Villanueva gave a sermonette which claims that one way of supporting the Work is by participating in Church sponsored sports activities!  So members are now freely talking about sports at Sabbath services.  Is that Biblical?  May God forgive you in teaching such a heresy. You can still repent of it. Here’s what God teaches about such activities:

“For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come. This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptation.” (1 Timothy 4:8-9)

Just read what the end time Elijah, Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong has written about this subject:

God sent me to be an example for who are growing into mature manhood and womanhood. Sure, I’ve had bodily exercise – A LITTLE! But not the over-amount of a professional athlete. I did play tennis occasionally, but never like a pro who plays all the time…

Yes, even though I didn’t really God then, I think He kept me from going too far into sports. If Jesus were to be on earth today, as He was more than 1,950 years ago, you may be sure HE WOULD NOT GO INTO PRO SPORTS – AND PROBABLY NO SPORTS AT ALL. Especially where there is the kind of COMPETITION people seem FOOLISHLY to believe in today – where you “GET” the “ecstasy of winning” and the “AGONY” of defeat. In Christ’s world tomorrow, we won’t have the kind of sports COMPETITION where the other TEAM has to SUFFER the “AGONY OF DEFEAT.” God doesn’t want any of us to have to suffer “AGONY” or cause an opponent to suffer “AGONY.”

Competition that is HOSTILE competition, where you try to beat the opponent and try to cause the other to LOSE, is Satan the devil’s kind of competition. (p. 2, Youth 81)

Youth 81 Feb(Click image to download)

Now what do you think is more important to God?  Sports or godliness?  Godliness includes devoting more time to bible study, fasting, prayer, meditation and practicing pure religion (James 1:27).  The answer is plainly stated above.  So if you put in so much of your time in sports and leave a miniscule part of your time for God, are you not committing IDOLATRY?  And if you talk about those activities on the Sabbath, are you not breaking the fourth commandment?  Then if you try to please Kirk Macdonald by going all the way in supporting his pet sports program, are you not also guilty of worshipping ministers?  It’s another way to commit IDOLATRY

“Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,” (Colossians 2:18 )

Check the word “angels” in this verse in Strongs and you’ll find that it also means by implication, a pastor or minister.  Now here is a command from God: Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry. (1 Corinthians 10:14)

How can Mr. Harrison remove all the iniquities in the PCG?  Unless he turns to God and perform a work like Josiah, things will just remain the same or get worse.  He cannot of himself heal the wound and sickness of the PCG. The PCG is moving fast in a downward spiral heading towards destruction!

The 25 men of Ezekiel 8:16 who are deeply involved in Edstone are mostly men of Ephraim.  Mr. Harrison himself is an Ephraimite.  Brad Macdonald, Wik Heerma, Dennis Leap and many more are of the stock of Ephraim.  John Macdonald and his son Kirk are Ephraimites themselves.  The problem is they turned their back on God and turned themselves into God’s enemy.  God has this to say against Ephraim.

“The word of the LORD that came to Micah the Morasthite in the days of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, which he saw concerning Samaria and Jerusalem. Hear, all ye people; hearken, O earth, and all that therein is: and let the Lord GOD be witness against you, the Lord from his holy temple. …Even of late my people is risen up as an enemy: ye pull off the robe with the garment from them that pass by securely as men averse from war.” (Micah 1:1-2; 2:8)

PCG ministers of the Ephraimite stock are very proud of their British lineage and are even promoting Britishness these days.  They have forgotten their being previously spiritual Jews.  They would rather pride themselves with their heritage as Samaritans who were transplanted to England during the Diaspora of Israel.  They are not ashamed of their link to the religion of Jeroboam which, those in the Diaspora brought with them to England.  They are not ashamed of their connection to Druidism which originated from Jeroboam’s pagan religion. That explains why Irish dancing has become very popular in the PCG and why we can see those Druidism symbols of the oak tree and the sun in our website and printed literature; and the semblance of the AWEN symbol in the Morning Star logo.  Now God is angry at them!

Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine! Behold, the Lord hath a mighty and strong one, which as a tempest of hail and a destroying storm, as a flood of mighty waters overflowing, shall cast down to the earth with the hand. The crown of pride, the drunkards of Ephraim, shall be trodden under feet: (Isaiah 28:1-3)

The PCG being spoken of as Ephraim has become God’s enemy.  And of late, God has inflicted sickness on spiritual Ephraim and a wound on spiritual Judah.  The Ephraimite ministers has already felt the throbbing pain in that wound and recognizes that the infection is spreading like gangrene.  Its further infection must be stopped or prevented if not cured.  This has been prophesied and it is happening right now.

“When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.” (Hosea 5:13) 

This prophecy has a spiritual fulfillment as well as a physical fulfillment. The spiritual aspect is happening right now.  This is the reason why Alex Harrison is coming to the Philippines to see how the wound and Ephraim’s sickness may be cured.  He knows where the destroying hailstorm and flood of mighty waters of Isaiah 28:2 is coming from. It’s coming from right here in the Philippines – from the FAR EAST!

The prophecy mentions that Ephraim went to the Assyrian.  This is not talking about Germany.  The meaning of the word ‘’Assyria’’ reveals that it is not really talking about Germany.

The word is H804 in Strongs and it is derived from H833 which means “to go straight, walk, go on, advance, make progress, to pronounce happy, call blessed, to be made happy, be blessed.” The meaning characterize the small group of God’s people doing His last end Work. They are a very happy group of people. God ordained His last end Work to emanate from this country.

Make ye mention to the nations; behold, publish against Jerusalem, that watchers come from a far country, and give out their voice against the cities of Judah. (Jeremiah 4:16)

The natural born Israelite despised their birthright.  Like Esau, they refused Jerusalem and chose Edstone in its place.  They would rather settle for a bowl of soup than be partakers of the glorious beauty of Jerusalem from above.  They have forgotten that God has chosen Jerusalem.  So the Gentiles are going to receive their opportunity to shine as the sun rising from the east, bringing healing in his wings to those that fear God’s name (Malachi 4:2).

“They have moved me to jealousy with that which is not God; they have provoked me to anger with their vanities: and I will move them to jealousy with those which are not a people; I will provoke them to anger with a foolish nation.” (Deuteronomy 32:21)

“What shall we say then? That the Gentiles, which followed not after righteousness, have attained to righteousness, even the righteousness which is of faith. But Israel, which followed after the law of righteousness, hath not attained to the law of righteousness.” (Romans 9:30-31)

There is no other group of people in the world who can claim or makes a claim that they have the promised BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE of Malachi 3:16.  We are the only ones.  We are the small remnant spoken of by the prophet Isaiah.

“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.” (Isaiah 1:9)

If not for what God is doing through this little remnant, the whole world will become like Sodom  and Gomorrah.  To God belong all the praises and honor and glory.  God is doing a last end Work of extending His great love, mercy and compassion upon His people.  He wants all of you in the PCG to be saved and so He gave this commission to us:

For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth.” (Acts 13:47)

“To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.”  (Isaiah 42:1-7)

With God’s help and inspiration, we are trying everything we can to remove the blindness in your eyes by exposing all the evils and wickedness in the PCG;  to bring everyone of you out of the PCG which God sees as a prison house;  to help those sitting in darkness outside the prison house – those people who have been thrown out of the PCG through suspensions and by the unjust application of the NO CONTACT POLICY.  Many of them have been lost and irrecoverable.  May God still give them a way to return to Him.

God’s last end Work will culminate with gathering those who fear God’s name from all nations and taking them to a place where God will hide them from the Day of the Lord.  That will be where God’s anointed will rebuild spiritual Jerusalem and the foundation of God’s spiritual Temple.

“That saith of Cyrus, He is my shepherd, and shall perform all my pleasure: even saying to Jerusalem, Thou shalt be built; and to the temple, Thy foundation shall be laid.” (Isaiah 44:28)

May all of you who could read this letter listen to the knocking of Christ on your door and open up before it’s too late and be a part of the exciting times ahead for God’s very elect which for others will be a time of terror and desolations.

With God’s love for the brethren,

Cyrus

  1. The announcement about the demotion of John Macdonald from the position of a Regional Director of the Australasia/South Africa to an Associate Pastor doesn’t make sense at all. The ministry did not even give a clear explanation as to the real reason why John Macdonald suffered such a demotion. The real reason could only be the SECRET about the death of Liza Fe Cokumna coming out in the open and the possibility of him being criminally liable.

  2. For all his iniquities and wrongdoings as a PCG minister as had been exposed in other letters and articles in this site, John Macdonald doesn’t deserve to continue in the ministry. He is like a millstone hanged about the neck of the PCG leadership which will drag them down to the depths of the sea (Mat 18:6)! Condoning a sinner for all the multitudes of his iniquities and letting him be over God’s own people shows the PCG leadership thinking like they are more righteous than God! What did God do to Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron when they offered strange fire before the Lord? God terminated them instantly! There was no hesitation about what sentence to give. God gave them what they deserved. Since John Macdonald is building his own church within the PCG which God calls the virgin daughter of Babylon, isn’t he offering strange fire before God? The longer the PCG leadership cuddle John Macdonald in their arms, the more they anger God and the more trouble they will have.

  3. Did he murder the daughter of Mrs Calumna himself? Let us reason together for (1) we are called to be levites peforming righteous judgment. There is no need to drag this in a courtcase. “Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? If the world is judged by you, are you not competent to constitute the smallest law courts? Do you not know that we will judge angels? How much more matters of this life? So if you have law courts dealing with matters of this life, do you appoint them as judges who are of no account in the church?”.
    If indeed it is in his heart to murder someone then yes he is guilty, but it was an accident? “You shall prepare the roads for yourself, and divide into three parts the territory of your land which the LORD your God will give you as a possession, so that any manslayer may flee there. Now this is the case of the manslayer who may flee there and live: NOTE: when he kills his friend unintentionally, not hating him previously– as when a man goes into the forest with his friend to cut wood, and his hand swings the axe to cut down the tree, and the iron head slips off the handle and strikes his friend so that he dies– he may flee to one of these cities and live”. Make sure that your judgments are qualified, fair and not prejudiced.

  4. this can only be the latest of a painfully long series of untimely deaths in the PCG, specifically resultant from abuse by the ministry. some even left letters of their reason to suicide, and none of it is hidden from the Creator. The Philippinos have shown far more honesty than other members in years past, so it has come to light.
