German pope's message for Jews

The Bavarian pope's "message" for Jewry is Islam is to be conquered and subdued and then the Jews. I'm sure the German pope could find many GERMAN EMPERORS to quote to substantiate his claim. However, let Jews understand that the bloody Roman Catholic Cult is not biblical or representative of Christianity in any manner, shape or form and has always persecuted the Sabbath-keeping Church of God and Jews for reminding folks of this fact.

Germany and the Vatican have a grand design, coming together and emerging from its underground existence before our very eyes, of a German-dominated European Union, a revived "Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation," Germany's Fourth Reich, that has its evil eye on Jerusalem, especially Mount Zion and the Temple Mount.

Pope starts new crusade

The Bavarian pope's calculated comments stoked the fires that will ultimately result in the EU's rapid reaction force responding to jihad with a new crusade. The bloody Vatican speaking against Muslim violence and terrorism is like the pot calling the kettle black!

The Grand Inquisitor knows it's only a matter of time before the "cross" defeats the "crescent" that hangs like the sword of Damocles over Europe and the world. Daniel foresaw the "King of the North" butt heads with and utterly defeat the "King of the South." Everything is getting put into place, positioned for the coming clash that will find Jerusalem caught in the middle.

Politics in the Church of God prevents progress

Many Sabbath-keeping Church of God members (various groups and organizations associated to one degree or another with Herbert W. Armstrong) are sincerely opposed to offering any Church of God literature or religious material for sale, since Herbert Armstrong taught us to "buy the truth and sell it not." However, such Church of God members should remember that Mr. Armstrong later permitted his books to be made available for sale in bookstores, informing the brethren and co-workers in a letter dated September 12, 1985:

"There is a very large audience which would never request this book [Mystery of the Ages] if offered free - who would never send their name and address to us - but would gladly buy a copy in the bookstore. By putting it in the bookstores we will reach a very great audience that we can reach in no other way. We will not sell the book ourselves, but it cannot be made available to this large audience of book buyers unless the bookstores do put a price on it." (Autobiography of Herbert W. Armstrong, Volume 2, page 638).

Some have been upset that Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall is sold. I remind them of Herbert Armstrong's words above and Paul's rhetorical response to some in his day over this principle that we're commanded to not muzzle the ox while it is treading out the grain and that a worker is worthy of his hire. Besides, Beyond Babylon is available to download for FREE or read online for FREE. God knows I am certainly not in this for the money, but gladly share the plain truth of the Bible and history as I am able, knowing it is truly priceless information.

I am also an individual, not a Church organization receiving regular tithes and offerings who therefore have no need to sell anything, as they're equipped to offer it all, ideally, for free. I don't believe any Church of God organization should sell Church of God literature. However, those out in the field, not part of the administration or headquarters, have a God-given right to do as necessary. Yeshua didn't condemn selling sacrificial animals but was righteously indignant that such commercial activities were taking place in the Temple courtyards and at exorbitant prices. Many were making a killing rather than offering a service.

A member of the Philadelphia Church of God recently corresponded with me on this and other Church of God issues.

Didn't you try and impose your book on God's ministers and church?

Not at all. Gerald Flurry refused to go forward with Beyond Babylon and fell backwards, treading old ground and is now going in circles, business as usual, as Europe rises and Judah and Israel have yet to be warned.

Maybe you should have waited until the time came.

Don't you believe God goes first to His Church and then His Nation? It was time to bring Beyond Babylon before Flurry, whom I consider to be the leader of this Laodicean era of God's Church.

Do you think you are one of the 2 witnesses?

God knows, but what I do know is that we ought to at least prepare the way for them with Judah and NONE of the Church of God groups reach the cities of Judah.

That would be a honor to be one. I've often prayed about them and in my silliness wished I could be one of them.

It would be an honor and a grave responsibility and the most hated job in the world since rejection would be by many in the Church, initially, and nearly all in the world, with a bloody ending until the resurrection to physical life just before the return of the King, Yeshua the Messiah. No nice dinners or fancy invitations for the Two Witnesses but plenty of murderous misunderstanding and hateful grief.

But I'm just a lay member.....

No such thing as "just" a lay member. Everybody has their God-given place in the Church of God and are equally important for whatever God has called them to do.

Seems to me you focus too much on the physical Jews.

Not at all. Herbert Armstrong always told us to "WATCH JERUSALEM!" Who's in Jerusalem? JEWS! The gospel began and will return there. God's true church is not there now although "Elijah" went there. This must change.

Mr. Armstrong, near the time of his death, said on one of his sermons or Bible studies that they are not so important as he once thought since they don't even believe in Jesus Christ.

I don't believe that at all and don't believe he ever said it. I quote what we know for sure Herbert Armstrong said about the importance of reaching the cities of Judah. It's documented. Shamefully, it's something that hasn't been done yet but the foundation has been laid, even though the Work in Israel is temporarily suspended by government decree as it was in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah.

Mr. Flurry never read your book right?

I don't know. Wayne Turgeon [Gerald Flurry's son-in-law] handed him a print out of it years ago and he returned it to him saying, "He's always sending us stuff." Mr. Flurry even responded to me several times on various issues including his confusion of Mount Carmel with Mount Hermon which I brought to his attention (having been blessed to live next to both of them), and my disagreement with him when he said the pope was the only religious leader to sit on a throne and I mentioned the Queen of England is also head of the Anglican Church (although agreeing with the point he was making against the Roman Catholic Cult).

I would love to find those letters, however during my many moves overseas to Israel I thought I kept them stored at my sister's home but she can't find them. Such letters also include correspondence from Dr. Herman Hoeh years ago about the Jews and their variations in color and why. I met Dr. Hoeh at the Toronto Singles' Weekend (Church of God singles from all over were in attendance) where he spoke and invited us to write him, which of course I did.

Later I sent an autographed copy of a self-published BB (Beyond Babylon) to Flurry's home for him and his wife who said to me (during the Feast of Tabernacles in Louisville) about my name, "What a strong Judah name!"

Dennis Leap said he read parts of it and that it wasn't necessary for him or Flurry to read it, unlike Mr. Armstrong wanting Sardis (Church of God, Seventh Day) to read his manuscript - The United States and Britain in Prophecy - which they DID.

Well, I hear you loud and clear. I do not agree with some of headquarter's decisions but they are just as human as we are and liable to make mistakes, including Mr. Flurry. Sometimes we just have to suffer the wrong and go on.

I readily accept and acknowledge that fact, but if it's a mistake or a sin we learn from it, acknowledge it and go forward all the wiser. Flurry has done none of those humble things. Regardless, I go on without him as he goes backwards trying to play HWA and God in the Temple, grieved to say.

David, I hope and pray for your return to PCG... Mr. Flurry has engaged in personal appearance campaigns and he plans to go to Joseph and Judah this coming year I think. The Key of David will no longer air on TV and we are now focusing on personal warnings.

Remember we are baptized into the Body of Jesus Christ - not into any sect or denomination of men. I remain a member of the spiritual Church of God that isn't bound by membership lists at the mercy of men. Remember Diotrephes? (3 John vs. 9-11).

What do you mean they've scrapped the TV programs (even though I always constructively criticized them -through Wayne Turgeon who used to write me very frequently - that nobody but a very limited religious audience would watch the programs at the hours they were shown). As Turgeon can testify, I also said they needed a toll free number (which years later they obtained); I said they needed a website with Church literature (which years later they have); they need to publish Beyond Babylon freely (which they still don't) and to take out major newspaper ads like HWA to reach EVERYBODY and get EVERYBODY talking about our God-given controversial message.

We do really need better advertisement.

Yes, because I've conducted my own tests and surveys on many internet forums to see that the general public doesn't have a clue who Flurry is, never heard of the PCG and doesn't know the warning message at all. All that money for what? A private club?

Too bad you only see what you think is bad but God has to get his family ready first to marry his Son before He can deal properly with the world.

And how does God do that? Have us stare at our Church navel - Church headquarters as the center of our attention? - or by the way of give, outflowing concern for the good and welfare of OTHERS - like the cities of Judah. Otherwise folks will never feel ready to reach out and will have proven themselves deceived by Satan who doesn't want the Work to GO FORWARD. As we reach out, so help us God, He will work in and through and for us at the same time.

I know everything that is good about the PCG and continue to direct folks to its literature and The Philadelphia Trumpet magazine despite their refusal to send it to me. They even know I've given them contacts in the Middle East, in Jerusalem, Jewish leaders, and that it was me whom God used to contact the mayor of Jerusalem to get the HWA monument repaired (in the Liberty Bell Park in Jerusalem), and then I forwarded the information to Flurry (who didn't even say thank you and wasn't even aware of its woeful neglect that I knew about from being over there so many times). I'll bet you didn't know that, did you?

I had written an open letter to the mayor of Jerusalem, Uri Lupolianski, that was published in The Jerusalem Post. His office contacted me to inquire about what groups or organizations I was referring to that would be interested in undertaking the financial responsibility for the monument's restoration and the rest is history.

Bavarian pope entrusts Germany to lead Europe, others wary of the Grand Inquistor

German President Horst Koehler blasphemed, "Holy Father, welcome home, welcome home to Germany" and Bavarian Minister-President Edmund Stoiber of the Christian Social Union Party proffered "the Christian roots of Bavaria are strong and full of energy," music to the ears of the Bavarian Pope Benedict XVI ready to inspire Germany to have Europe follow their lead in a danse macabre.

The "holy Roman" arrived in Munich to galvanize the underground forces ready to spring into action to revive the empire of the German Nation, all allegedly in service to Europa - a damsel in distress - and in pagan devotion to "Mary" (in whose square they convened, before St. Mary's Column, a bizarre confluence of Bavarian, German and Roman ambitions). According to the views of such "warriors," the two-headed dragon of Islam and secularism must be slain for "Christian Western Civilization" to survive and Germany is again being called upon to wield the necessary sword as "The Defender of the [Catholic] Faith."

Germany might find it providential that they're in the heart of Europe and have seen more of their sons rise to emperor status than all others combined. Stoiber thanked the pope for addressing issues that confront the modern world, "in warning when Christian values and human dignity threatened to be overcome by the spirit of the times." Stoiber clearly struck a chord with the audience and received the most thunderous applause when he chimed, "It moves us deeply in our souls when the head of the Roman Catholic Church says, 'My heart beats Bavarian.'"

Will Europe soon feel two hearts (Church and State) beat as one? Is not this Bavarian pope's visit to Germany a media blitz to move Europe to find meaning and shelter under the cross to ward away the evil of Islam and awaken them to the dead end of secularism? Will Germany challenge the continent to remember their roots, going on offensive against those liberals who have made moot, as much as possible, professing Christian influence as exposed in the present preamble to the EU Constitution? Hasn't the pope issued the call for this new crusade, ignited in Bavaria, to gain momentum throughout Germany and spread across Europe?

"At decisive moments throughout their history, the Bavarian people have always confirmed their sincere devotion to the see of Peter and their firm attachment to the Catholic faith."

The pope summoned and invoked "all my compatriots in Bavaria and throughout Germany will play an active part in the transmission of the fundamental values of the Christian faith to the citizens of tomorrow."

The Bavarian pope acknowledged, "The relations between Bavaria and the Holy See, notwithstanding some moments of tension, have always been marked by warm, cordial respect." A reference to those who opposed granting then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, an honorary citizenship of Munich to mark his years there as archbishop, stating "We don't need a Grand Inquisitor," referring to his nickname as the strict enforcer of church doctrine.

Now that Germany and Europe are at a historic crossroads, a decisive moment, will such protests be a thing of the past and prove too unpopular, even dangerous, as Germany prepares to take the EU bull by the horns and the crowds get whipped up?

Collaboration between Rome and Jerusalem?

One must question whether or not this present "Sanhedrin" (in training or preparation) would agree to some deal with the Vatican over Jerusalem. Would the "Sanhedrin" submit to an arrangement where the Roman Catholic Church is offered their long sought control of Mount Zion (with "guarantees" of freedom of access for Jews to King David's Tomb) in exchange for the restoration of Jewish authority over the Temple Mount (with the go ahead given for the construction of the Third Temple by the release of the Temple treasures from Rome to Jerusalem), with the understanding that when UN Resolution 181 is enforced such a "Sanhedrin" would be elevated and respected as the legitimate Jewish rulers/representatives, considering the secular shell of a state will soon be history?

The Chief Rabbinate already flirts with foreign occupation. Are there any other groups in Israel that couldn't care less who runs the state - UNJews or actual Gentiles - as long as they're free to worship and left alone to lead Jewish lives?

I hope and pray nobody trusts the German-dominated EU or the bloody Vatican, as Zechariah reveals such Roman wolves in sheep's clothing will brutally betray and occupy Jerusalem, expelling the entire Jewish Quarter, as Mount Zion is merely a stepping stone to the coveted Temple Mount.

Germany to take the EU bull by the horns

As 2007 fast approaches, with Germany in command of the rotating presidency of the European Union for the first half of the year, Germany is setting the stage to perform thunderous acts and stun their audience with lightning speed and awesome ability.

The German accelerant to European unification will seize the moment and ignite the imagination to consolidate the continent in their no-nonsense manner, getting down to business and wasting no time, serious that the Islamo-fascist threat targets Rome and Vienna - "Western Christian Civilization" - and that only the cross can repel the crescent. Germany will invoke and wield assistance from both industrialists and politicians, ministers of state and religion, especially the Vatican who champions Germany as the "Defender of the Faith."

Offering a stark glimpse of where Germany will lead Europe, the world's most powerful woman (according to Forbes), Angela Merkel, following a private meeting with the Bavarian pope - weighed in:

"We spoke about the role of Europe and I emphasised the need for a constitution and that it should refer to our Christian values," she said. "I believe this treaty should be linked to Christianity and God because Christianity was decisive in the formation of Europe."

Such calculated comments led to charges that Merkel resurrects ‘holy’ EU constitution row, as can be expected, but to her credit she didn't shy away from the controversy or conceal her convictions. However, much more is at stake in the heart of Europe than first meets the eye. The German chancellor's endorsement is only the tip of the iceberg.

Catholic politicians are going on the offensive against secular resistance to mention of Christian heritage in the Preamble of the European Constitutional Treaty with their Association of the Europe Foundation. Giorgio Salina, president of the new organization, states its purpose is to counter the "widespread and manifest hostility that Christian culture -- considered a subculture -- meets within European institutions, specifically, in Parliament".

Salina is also the vice president of the Convention of Christians for Europe, who plan on meeting once or twice a year with "deputies, Christians and those sensitive to Christian, national and European values."

Mario Mauro, vice president of the European Parliament, has stressed the importance of the foundation's mission of building a Christian identity in Europe.

Germany's foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has revealed that Germany has every intention of making the EU constitution a priority next year, telling German diplomats "We need a constitution as soon as possible." The heat is on. The politicians have received their marching orders.

We can expect the Bavarian pope and his politico-religious puppets to forge ahead with their plans to remodel Europe after the "holy Roman Empire of the German Nation." Sound far-fetched? Not at all. Laying the foundation for it in fertile minds, helping to shape public perception and policy, just in time for Germany's ascension to the throne, Germany hosts An Empire Revisited 200 Years After Its Demise. Germany's information services describes it as "two major retrospectives featuring historic documents and artifacts in Berlin and Magdeburg, along with several related exhibits in Frankfurt and other cities, aim to bring this empire back to life 200 years after it was declared dead in Vienna by Kaiser Franz II in the Europe of Napoleon."

Yet some, failing to connect the dots, or unable to believe that truth is stranger than fiction or Germany capable of backsliding, lament The clothes have no emperor, that Europe "does not, it cannot, seem to speak with one voice: it cannot even agree to speak through one speak collectively with a single voice...the advantages of speaking and acting authoritatively with the collective weight of the world's largest trading bloc are so self-evident and overwhelming ...".

Germany will get down to the brass tacks and prepare the way for the emperor to fill the clothes that yet hang limp. Europe's strong man, with the pope's promotion, will emerge as the grand design demands. However, Europe is not only taking a monumental risk that such a leader will always adhere to its ideals, it is gambling with world peace. Is a world dictator about to appear? Based upon both the Bible and history, I would say, yah.

Read Beyond Babylon yet?

Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall is destined to become a national debate and an international controversy because it dares to speak the plain truth in a world of lies!



Beyond Babylon
Chapter One

Survival Guaranteed!

The DEVASTATION unleashed against America and her British allies was without precedent. Destruction was everywhere and a body count impossible. The catastrophe was beyond calculation.

Europe - gripped with a messianic furor - justified this mass destruction of the body to "save the soul." Besides, they had the blessing of the pope. His white robes were stained with the blood of many martyrs.

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 2

Why National Defeat?

Why are we in mortal danger? Why will the American, British and Jewish people SUFFER national defeat? How could Europe ever turn against us?

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 3

Truth or Consequences

As global tensions increase, and threats of confrontation escalate, we might very well wonder whether humanity will survive. Unless there’s a GOD to intervene, we have a bleak future indeed: a DEAD PLANET! Will earth become a nuclear fireball? Will charred bones - aftermath of unleashed atomic fires - and the smoldering ruins of a suicidal civilization be all that’s left?

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 4

Victims of Tradition

Whenever our behavior gets out of control, God lets us loose control! When we’re held hostage to bad habits, and refuse to let them go, we go into captivity! A national lack of discipline results in God sending corrective punishment! Then we wake up and get with it, and beg God to save us. The whole purpose is to bring us to our knees and senses.

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 5

Europe's Fate

What’s going to happen to Europe? We know what’s going to happen to the American and British peoples, as well as to our Jewish brethren. The coming WORLD CRISIS is prophesied to fall especially hard on them. Why?

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 6

Jesus and the Jews

Why don't the Jews accept Jesus?" I've been asked that so many times. My usual reply? "Why haven't the Christians?" At least the Jews are waiting for the proper imperial restoration. The Messiah's coming to sit on DAVID'S THRONE - not Caesar's or "St. Peter's." The Anointed One's going to rule from JERUSALEM - not Rome!

Beyond Babylon
Chapter 7

Elijah's Key Role

Israel's about to host the greatest showdown on earth! A spiritual conflict of interests will create such a scene in Jerusalem that the whole world will watch! Zion will be an arena of prophets and sorcerers, warriors and kings! The forces of good and evil are set to duel: the sons of light will battle the sons of darkness, and truth will confront error head-on!

British-Israelites and Jews in grave danger

The American, British and Jewish peoples are in serious trouble. Beyond Babylon: Europe's Rise and Fall warns that due to our idolatry and immorality, our nations are prophesied to fall and fall hard if we don't turn from our ways and remember our Hebrew roots and biblical responsibilities (Malachi 4:4).

Our Great Creator God, the God of Jacob-Israel, is removing His protective shield from our borders and our lands will soon be ravaged by both the weather and men, but God in His mercy, in His patience, has permitted us a grace period that is about to end. We have been suffering the consequences of sin and such divine punishment will only intensify and escalate, as we demand, to drive the message home (Daniel 9:11).

Many will find themselves homeless due to famine and destruction, and if we remain proud and stubborn and refuse to hear and heed and save ourselves, we'll suffer greater destruction, leading to our defeat and deportation, conquered by the fascist EU under German-Jesuit influence. America will be homeless. The British Commonwealth will be homeless. Israel will be homeless. We'll have been exiled from our God-given Garden of Eden. The choice is ours. God help us to make the right choice and do the right thing and CHOOSE LIFE! (2 Chronicles 7:14).

Daniel 9:11

11 Yes, all Israel has transgressed Your law, and has departed so as not to obey Your voice; therefore the curse and the oath written in the Law of Moses the servant of God have been poured out on us, because we have sinned against Him.

Malachi 4:4

4 “ Remember the Law of Moses, My servant,
Which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel,
With the statutes and judgments.

2 Chronicles 7:14

14 if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Israeli Jews must reclaim Holy Land occupied by Roman Catholics

The Vatican again exposes its inherent hostility towards Jews and Israel by railing against Christian Zionists.

In light of the Vatican's recent outburst, venomous against Israel and those who prefer it to an accursed "Palestine," Israel would be wise to reclaim those areas of the Holy Land of Israel that "Edom" presently occupies and restore them to proper Jewish hands. Why should the Israelis permit such sworn enemies to have a foothold in Jerusalem upon Mount Zion (or anywhere in the Jewish Homeland) with their evil eye upon the Temple Mount?

Israel must demand the return of the Temple treasures the Vatican holds hostage and investigate Shimon Peres' collaboration with the Germans and Jesuits against Yitzhak Rabin and Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem.
