A NEW SONG – Lo, I Come: In the Volume of the Book it is Written of Me

In the July-August 2017 issue of the Royal Vision magazine, Mr. Gerald Flurry wrote an article regarding new revelation about Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong’s prayer rock, entitled, “The New Stone of Destiny.” Here is an excerpt of what he wrote on page 3:

“Now, this new revelation about the prayer rock brings these prophecies into sharper focus. I was wrong in thinking the way I did about us getting that stone. God had a better stone in mind—one superior to that stone!

God is making this significant change for a good reason: We are ready to go to the place of safety, and we now have the stone of destiny! This is much more practical than what we thought would have to happen. THIS SIGNIFICANTLY HELPS OUR JOB OF PREPARING THE WAY FOR THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST!

A PURER SYMBOL

Hosea prophesied of a time when Britain would be “without a king, and without a prince … and without an image”—referring to the stone of destiny. We are in that time now! Britain doesn’t possess the image, or the stone, any longer. We in God’s Church now have an even better symbol of King David’s throne.

THIS IS WHAT GOD WANTS. I realize it is radical to say that there is a new stone of destiny. But it is also radical to say that God’s people will have the throne of David, and that is straight out of the Bible! And the stone is a symbol of the throne. God used Mr. Armstrong to prepare the way for Christ’s Second Coming (e.g. Malachi 3:1; 4:5-6; Matthew 17:10-11).

Mr. Armstrong also received the key of David vision (Revelation 3:7) and was a physical descendant of King David. It would be logical for Mr. Armstrong to have a personal connection with the rock that symbolizes the throne of David that Christ will rule from. Mr. Armstrong had a special calling, and you have to be impressed with all that he accomplished.

God wants us to learn even more from what he did. Jacob’s pillar stone ties back to Jacob when he was unconverted. God changed his name to Israel upon his conversion (Genesis 32:28). That stone has been witness to generations of coronations of unconverted men and women who have carried on the royal line of David. Perhaps, in the final phase of His Work in this end time, God wanted to have a different stone—a purer spiritual symbol with God’s Church, where His people possess the Holy Spirit. This symbol embodies so much more. I believe that is why God made the change. God’s faithful people today are following through on what Mr. Armstrong did as he prepared the way for Christ’s Second Coming. We are raising up the ruins of his work, and magnifying him and what God did through him.”

Royal Vision July-Aug 2017

God’s true messenger for this last era of God’s Church was again viciously criticized in the armstrongismlibrary.blogspot.com website with their article and comments posted last 24th November 2017, entitled, “New King of the Church of God Travels to England.” (emphasis mine in bold)

“God was busy working many miracles in October for the new King of the Church of God.  Now that Gerald Flurry has declared Herbert’s prayer rock to be the new coronation stone and that he himself is the modern day King of the church, till Jesus returns to take possession of it, his God has been clearing the way with miraculous events.

King Gerry was ready to fly to England to visit his English campus at Edstone, when lo and behold, Satan attacked him and caused passport issues.  While all of this as being worked out, his god started telling the high altitude winds, that King Gerry’s jet would be flying in, to increase their speed in order to let King Gerry’s private plane be able to fly directly from Oklahoma to England without refueling!

Below is an excerpt from Grant Turgeon’s slobberfest about the trip.  The most disturbing part is the last paragraph.  Visions of adoring crowds clamoring to get close to Jim Jones, Herbert Armstrong, and leaders of other cults come to mind.  The PCG faithful have totally swallowed Gerald Flurry’s lie about HWA’s prayer rock, its new significance and the fact that he is now the King that God is supposedly working through.

The sheer depths of spiritual depravity that Armstrongite leaders sink to is mind-boggling.

With this so-called new revelation about this new stone of destiny, even people outside of God’s Church are noticing how God’s servant is sinking deeper and deeper into the bottomless pit of confusion and wickedness.

What the PCG ministry is unaware of is that, this change in the stone of destiny, is also being questioned within the PCG membership. These are questions that harbor in the people’s minds:

“How can the prayer rock of Mr. Herbert Armstrong became the new stone of destiny?” Or, “How can the actual stone of destiny be changed to another actual stone?”

Mr. Gerald Flurry admitted in the article that it is radical or extreme to say that there is a new stone of destiny. It’s very strange to say something like it. But he rationalized that statement by saying, “It is also radical to say that God’s people will have the throne of David.”

Mr. Flurry, furthermore, admitted that he was wrong in thinking that they would get the real stone of destiny in Scotland. He further reasoned that having this new stone of destiny (HWA’s prayer rock) is for practical purpose or appropriate to the present condition, since they believed that they’re all set to go to the place of safety in Petra in Jordan and it will help them prepare for the return of Jesus Christ.

One may ask, “Has God’s messenger lost his mind?” or “Why all these unsound reasoning of God’s servant?” What happened to Mr. Gerald Flurry? A prophecy in the book of Hosea, provides an answer.

The days of visitation are come, the days of recompence are come; Israel shall know it: the prophet is a fool, the spiritual man is mad, for the multitude of thine iniquity, and the great hatred. (Hosea 9:7)

The Prophet Hosea reveals that God’s messenger has gone mad. Strong’s Concordance says, “play the madman” or “rave through insanity” – which means that he is talking or writing about something absurd or ridiculous. He is now acting like a foolish man in the eyes of many people.

But why has this happened to him?

The same passage shows the reason. It is because of the foolishness or perverseness of the prophet – referring to his own son, Stephen.

The failure of Stephen Flurry and his men, in their pursuit to acquire the real stone of destiny in Scotland, after three years of setting up a new work in Edstone and abandoning the work in Jerusalem, has occasioned the fabrication of a new stone of destiny.

The change in the stone of destiny is essentially a product of Stephen Flurry’s vanity and wickedness. He turned away from God. Hosea also proves why this has happened – it is because of the multitude of iniquity in God’s Church. And God has shown in many of His prophecies that these evils were caused by Stephen and his men.

And so the Pastor General of the Philadelphia Church of God is frequently maligned by other people. He is often the subject of ridicule instead of his son Stephen and his fellows. Mr. Gerald Flurry could not see all these evils happening inside God’s Church because God has temporarily closed his eyes.

A Song of degrees for Solomon. Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain. It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep. (Psalms 127:1-2)

God has put Mr. Gerald Flurry to deep sleep.  A sleeping person is unaware of what is happening around him. God has shown that Stephen Flurry now controls the PCG. He, together with his comrades, are the ones building the house. In the end, all their efforts will amount to nothing. They are just sinking further into the pit of confusion. And God’s servant is brought also into that deep hole. What a pathetic and depraved state Mr. Gerald Flurry is brought into!

Is there hope for God’s servant?

God reveals the answer through the words of King David in the book of Psalms. He has prepared a plan to rescue Mr. Gerald Flurry from the bondage of his own son Stephen and his men. He will provide a way for him to climb up from that bottomless pit.

A NEW SONG

Psalms 40 shows how God will draw out Mr. Gerald Flurry from the endless depth of confusion.

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.” (Psalms 40:1-3)

God’s extraction of Mr. Flurry from that rotten abyss and bringing him back on the right track will happen when God gives him a new song. What is this new song which God will put in his mouth?

First, let’s consider the effect on God’s Church, The Philadelphia Church of God (PCG) immediately after Mr. Flurry gobbled up this new song. Notice that this new song will result in the opening of the eyes of the people in God’s Church.  Many people shall see and fear God again. The phrase, “many shall see it, and fear” was inserted with a word “it,” in italics, by Bible translators which destroys the true meaning of the verse. The correct words are, “Many shall see and fear.”

PCG members will see God’s light. Their eyes will be opened to God’s truth once again. They will begin to understand what has happened to God’s Church and understand their true condition at present. They will know that they have veered away from God through the lies and wickedness of the 25 men of Ezekiel 8.

People will return again to Him because of this new song which God will place into the mouth of Mr. Gerald Flurry. This plainly shows a repentance toward the Almighty God. But sadly, not everyone’s eyes will be opened.

But why a return to God?

Verse 3 implicitly indicates that that the people in the PCG today are blind. They have become Laodiceans! Their eyes were darkened and could not see God’s light because they focused them on their ministers. Their fear and trust on God was shifted to their idols. The succeeding passage (verse 4) further proves this reality. It reveals that a proud individual runs the show inside God’s own Church, who opposes the living God, perpetrating lies in its midst and has gained the trust and respect of the people.

Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” (Psalms 40:4)

This proud individual, as we have shown in many of our past articles, refers to Stephen Flurry who usurped his father’s office by forming an alliance with the PCG ministry against his own flesh and blood. He has caused all the ministers around the world to follow him instead of the man God has set over them as their human leader.

He often tries to overshadow his father in all aspect of the PCG work. His recent visit to their Ophel excavation in Jerusalem, without any plans to get his hands dirty or to participate in the actual dig, indicates that he just want to show off and take the credit again from his dad.

Stephen with Mazar 012818.png

Their involvement in this excavation project of Dr. Eilat Mazar is just one of the many lies which he perpetrates to show the PCG members all over the world that they have returned to Jerusalem and continuing the work which they have left for years. This leads to the confusion of people that there is nothing wrong with what’s going on inside the Church. God allowed Mr. Gerald Flurry to become deaf and blind because of his son’s pride and evil motives.

And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods. Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may seeWho is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’S servant? Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not. The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable. But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.” (Isaiah 42:16-22)

Mr. Gerald Flurry’s ears are open and yet he is unable to hear what God is saying. He sees all the abominations and wickedness taking place within the Church and yet he could not see these works as evil. As mentioned earlier, God allowed him to be brought into the bottomless pit of confusion. He is right now in a futile, miserable, and disgraceful condition. But there is hope in God. In a little while, God will remove the blindness and deafness of his servant and enable him to understand His words again.

Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required. (Psalms 40:6)

Through this new song which God will feed His servant, his ears will be able to hear again. It will serve as a way for God’s people to return to Him. This will be the effect of Mr. Gerald Flurry eating this new song. And God has pronounced a blessing for those who will forsake Stephen and his allies and trust and fear God again because of this new song.

Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.” (Psalms 40:4)

IN THE VOLUME OF THE BOOK IT IS WRITTEN OF ME

But what is this new song really all about?

Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me, (Psalms 40:7)

Notice very carefully that this new song has something to do with the volume of the book. The phrase, “in the volume of the book” literally means “in the roll of the book.” And the words, “it is written of me” according to Barnes Commentary means “It is recorded.” or “There is a record made of me.”

This means that there exists a volume or a roll of the book that contains a record about Mr. Gerald Flurry. Thus, the phrase, “Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me” can be translated as, “Behold, I come: in the volume of a book containing an account about me.” Soon, Mr. Flurry will come before the PCG with a volume of the book containing written prophecies about him. He is coming with a book in his hands, to fulfill a job for God, which he will be very glad to do for Him.

I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart. (Psalms 40:8)

He will be pleased to do this job for God because this new song is about God’s deliverance of His people.

TWO OFFICES OF SON OF MAN

The Prophet Ezekiel, in his visions from God which have an end-time fulfilment, also prophesied about this volume of the book which he described more in detail in the 2nd chapter of his book. Ezekiel was aware of this new song coming from God. Ezekiel chapter 2 is connected with Psalms chapter 40. After Ezekiel’s vision of God and His chariots of salvation in the opening chapter of his book, the 2nd chapter set off with God speaking to a son of man commanding him to stand up for Him.

And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee. And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me. And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day. For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD. And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them. (Ezekiel 2:1-5)

Who is this son of man commissioned to go to the rebellious house of Israel? Let’s understand first the term son of man. In Caesarea, Jesus Christ asked His disciples about the people’s general view of Him being the Son of man. Notice the disciples’ reply.

When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. (Matthew 16:13-14)

The people thought Jesus Christ, as the Son of man, was perhaps John the Baptist, or Elias [Elijah], or Jeremias [Jeremiah], or one of the prophets. Notice that the names mentioned are names of servants or prophets of God. The people in Caesarea knew that the term son of man was a term for a servant or a prophet of God, which is quite different from the views of many people today. The Caesareans believed that Jesus Christ was one of those earlier prophets or servants of God. Therefore, the label son of man in the book of Ezekiel, is a prophet or a servant commissioned by God in this last end.

The son of man addressed by God here in the opening verses is given an instruction to go to the children of Israel and bring them a warning message from Him. The children of Israel refers to God’s true Church in this end-time, the Philadelphia Church of God.

Who is this son of man commissioned by God to stand for Him? This son of man is a representation of God’s prophets – His Two Witnesses. They are called simply, son of man because these two individuals have the same office – the office of a prophet. God sent them to His own Church because of rebellion against Him.

They and their fathers”, referring to God’s people and their ministers have gone astray and still sinning at this very moment. (Ezekiel 2:3)

The proud man inside God’s own Church (Psalms 40:4), Stephen Flurry, who perpetrates lies by raising a new work in Edstone and dumped the Jerusalem work has brought the whole PCG into a state of rebellion against God. Because of his vanity, he grabbed the power from his father, and set up an autonomous work in Edstone.

Stephen Flurry in Edstone

When Stephen started a rival work in Edstone, God allowed demons, symbolized by locusts, with the power of scorpions when they sting, to possess ministers and members in the PCG. So, a widespread demon possession in the Church ensued.

And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.” (Revelation 9:3-5)

This dreadful event is explained more fully in our article, The EDSTONE Work – THE FIRST WOE in the Book of Revelation

Therefore, what we see today in the PCG with regard to their work is just plain vanity – the key to the bottomless pit. They focus more on the cares of this life and lust after material things because of their riches. And the Church now has become the house of demons and a prison house for unclean spirits (Revelation 18:2). The location of Stephen Flurry’s headquarters in Edstone, which is within Warwickshire, England – the region once known as “Kingdom of Hwicce” or the “Kingdom of the Witches,” is a further proof of this. (Read our booklet that explains this subject)

The Transgressors are Come to the Full.png

Though God’s servant, Mr. Gerald Flurry is brought also into this world of confusion (Babylon), God is still safeguarding him from the demon possession that is happening inside the PCG. Notice how God describes his present condition inside God’s Church in Ezekiel 2:6-8.

Moreover, observe carefully that, beginning in verse 6, God is now addressing a different son of man or servant of God in the scene. His words have suddenly shifted to another addressee. He now begin to speak to a son of man distinct from the first son of man whom He asked to stand up for Him and prophesy to His people.

And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house. And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious. But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee. (Ezekiel 2:6-8)

The distinction can also be recognized in the phrase, “But thou, son of man” – which shows that God suddenly shifted His attention and began to speak to another son of man. This other son of man or servant of God is a representation of Mr. Gerald Flurry.

GRF.jpg

The condition of this son of man corroborates that he is another person or another son of man in the scene. He is portrayed as being with briers and thorns and dwelling among scorpions.

We have shown already that the PCG today has become the house of demons (Revelation 18:2). Hence, Mr. Gerald Flurry is now living with scorpions or demon-possessed ministers and members in the PCG. He is also surrounded with briers and thorns.

Briers is symbolic of the love of the self or vanity. Thorns, as used in the analogy by Jesus Christ about the calling of people to God’s truth, refers to the cares of this world, the deception of riches and material lusts.

And these are they which are sown among thorns; such as hear the word, And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful. (Mark 4:18-19)

He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. (Matthew 13:22)

All these wickedness which Jesus Christ mentioned in the gospels of Mark and Matthew pertains to “the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life” which the Apostle John mentioned in his warning to the Church (I John 2:16). And these evils have been introduced by Stephen Flurry and his men into the Church today. God loathes those people who bear thorns and briers.

But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned. (Hebrews 6:8)

Alas, this is what His children have turned into in this last end.

Thus, we see God’s servant, Mr. Gerald Flurry being surrounded with briers and thorns and living among scorpions in the Church today. Indeed, the PCG has become a rebellious house (Ezekiel 2:5).

Seeing the miserable and shameful state of God’s Church and His servant, He then instructs the son of man to stand up for Him and prophesy to His people. This started the work of the His Two Witnesses.

So, here in the 2nd chapter of Ezekiel, we recognize two distinct offices of son of man. God reveals that He is addressing two “son of man” or sons of men” in this end-time prophecies He gave to Ezekiel. We have to see this distinction being expressed indirectly in this prophecy and in the whole book of Ezekiel. God is speaking to two separate offices of His servants. One office is the office of a Prophet and the other office is the office of an Apostle. This is a vital key in understanding the book of Ezekiel.

God has to reveal the identity of the “sons of men” to be able to understand the prophecies in this book. These two offices pertains to the office of the Two Witnesses and the office of Mr. Gerald Flurry. Thus, in the whole book of Ezekiel, God’s words switch between these two distinct sons of men or two separate offices of God’s servants.

God has been sending a message for the PCG. And whether the people in the PCG will hearken to His message or reject it, they will later know that God has sent them a prophet to warn them of their rebellion. There is a high probability that the ministers and members will reject God’s message for they are impudent and stiffhearted as God describes them (Ezekiel 2:4). Likewise, God is sending a message for Mr. Gerald Flurry. He considers him not rebellious like those PCG ministers and members. This is evidently shown in God’s warning to him, not to be rebellious like those people in the PCG.

But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee. (Ezekiel 2:6-8)

On the outside looking in, one may conclude that Mr. Gerald Flurry approves the abominations and evils being committed inside the PCG. For this reason, people criticize him cruelly on the internet without any knowledge of his true condition inside the Church. Just like in the post mentioned in the introduction of this article. But the truth is, he is totally unaware of what’s going on in God’s Church. (Isaiah 42:19-20). He just can’t see and hear at the moment.

Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’S servant? Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not(Isaiah 42:19-20)

Therefore, God sees him as not guilty of rebellion against Him. The rebellion of the PCG revolves around not eating what God gave to them before. And God instructs Mr. Flurry not to replicate the same mistake committed by the PCG ministers and members in the past, who, until now, continue to defy Him. Mr. Flurry must eat what God is about to give to him.

But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee. (Ezekiel 2:6-8)

But, what is this food or thing which God would like Mr. Gerald Flurry to eat?

AN HAND SENT UNTO ME

Notice what appears next in the vision as God instructs Mr. Gerald Flurry to swallow what He is about to give him.

And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein; (Ezekiel 2:9)

It was a hand with a roll of a book! This is the same volume of the book that was earlier mentioned containing a new song. (Psalms 40:7). The word roll means volume. This is exactly the same vision expressed in Psalms 40.

Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,” (Psalms 40:7)

God had shown the same vision to the prophet Ezekiel. The roll of a book was in the hand of God reaching out to the son of man.

What is this hand?

The word “hand” used in Ezekiel chapter 2 is “yad” in Hebrew which is also defined in Strong’s Concordance as “ministry” so this indicates that there is another MINISTRY apart from Mr. Gerald Flurry’s. It is referring to the MINISTRY of the Two Witnesses being the symbolic HANDS of the end time Zerubbabel, Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. (Zechariah 4:9)

Another allusion to hand is it is a symbol of God’s power and strength. In addition, a hand is God’s instrument in performing His will and purpose for mankind. We can conclude here that it is through the power of the living God or through His instrument in doing His work in this end-time that Mr. Gerald Flurry will get hold of this roll of a book – through the MINISTRY of the Two Witnesses!

God is reaching out to him to give him a way out of the bottomless pit where is he suffering at this very moment. But what exactly is this roll of a book to be handed down to him? To help us identify this roll of a book, let’s consider how the prophet Ezekiel describes it. In the vision, when the son of man received this roll of a book and laid it open before him, he noticed that this roll of a book is written within and without,

And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: … (Ezekiel 2:10)

Here is what Bible commentaries say about the expression, “written within and without.”

within and without — on the face and the back. Usually the parchment was written only on its inside when rolled up; but so full was God’s message of impending woes that it was written also on the back. (Jamieson, Fausset and Brown – JFB)

It was written within and without – Contrary to the state of rolls in general, which are written on the inside only. The Hebrew rolls are generally written in this way. There are several of such Hebrew rolls before me, all written on the inside only, consisting of skins of vellum, or parchment, or basil, a sort of half-tanned sheep or goat skin, sewed together, extending to several yards in length. Other Asiatic books were written in the same way. A Sanscrit roll of sixty feet in length, also before me, is written all on the inside; and a Koran, written in exceedingly small characters, about two inches broad and twelve feet long, and weighing but about half an ounce. But the roll presented to the prophet was written on both sides, because the prophecy was long, and to the same effect; …. (Adam Clarke)

it was written within and without; on the back, of the vellum or parchment as well as inside; and such writings were called “opisthographa”; … It was usual only to write on the inside; but when they had a great deal to write, then they wrote on the backside also (d); so that this roll being thus written denotes the largeness and abundance of the prophecies contained in this book; … (John Gill)

The expression, “written within and without,” according to these Bible commentaries, means that this roll of a book is a long or lengthy book which has many pages inside. And its lengthiness is due to the great quantity of prophecies written inside. You can say, it is jam-packed with God’s prophecies. And notice what was included in this lengthy book.

And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. (Ezekiel 2:10)

This book contains lamentations, mourning and woe. With these descriptions provided by the prophet Ezekiel, what lengthy book, filled with God’s prophecies and also contains lamentations, mourning and woe, came on the scene in this end-time and delivered to the ministers and members of the PCG? There is no book that clearly fits these descriptions than the book entitled, “The Last End: A Book of Remembrance.”

the-last-end-book-perspective-front-back.png

This is the book that is written within and without with more than 650 pages of prophecies from God. It reveals the events that transpired within God’s true Church, the PCG, during this final era of the Church, how she rebelled against God, committed fornication, and became abominable in God’s eyes by her observance of pagan practices.

It describes how the 25 men of Ezekiel, led by Stephen Flurry, left God’s work in Jerusalem and chose a different work in Bricketwood at first, and later in Edstone. It shows the lamentations and mournings of God’s people brought about by the Ezekiel 4 Siege or the renowned no-contact policy being implemented all over the world which resulted in suicides, break up of marriages, isolation of members, and broken families. This has caused widespread lamentations and mournings of God’s people all over the world.

We can also view the lamentations and mournings as the lamentations and mournings of the son of man conveyed in the Book of Remembrance. God’s prophets lamented and mourned the deplorable state of God’s Church because of the evil committed by the ministry and their supporters. The son of man expressed in words his feelings for all the wickedness that he saw happening inside God’s Church.

And God has pronounced a woe to those responsible for all the evils done and showed them their bitter end, including those who followed their pernicious ways. Furthermore, the Book of Remembrance is the only lengthy book connected with the son of man, [The Two Witnesses] and directed to the other son of man, Mr. Gerald Flurry and to the children of Israel [PCG].

The vision of a hand which was sent to him is also symbolic of God’s Two Witnesses extending help to Mr. Gerald Flurry who is in the midst of a rebellious people. God’s hand is continually reaching out to Mr. Gerald Flurry to give him this Book of Remembrance and to reveal to him the state of the Church. God wants to tell him the true story of what truly happened to him and to God’s Church.

As cited earlier, God regards him as “not rebellious” in contrast to those PCG ministers and members who didn’t eat the book when He sent it to them. Soft and hard copies of the Book of Remembrance were sent to the PCG in the past but they rejected it. Ministers even ordered members to burn it or dump it. Their rebellion centers on not eating or rejecting God’s message contained in this book.

Mr. Gerald Flurry has not received the Book of Remembrance yet and read its contents. For this reason, God sees him as not guilty of rebellion against Him. Likewise, there were attempts in the past to send this book to Mr. Gerald Flurry but the PCG ministry and their supporters prevented him from getting hold of this book. Though the PCG ministry is very conscientious in blocking this book from falling into his hands, one way or another, it will eventually reach him.

No amount of persistency on their part will continually keep Mr. Gerald Flurry from obtaining this book because it is prophesied in this 2nd chapter of the book of Ezekiel that Mr. Gerald Flurry will definitely get hold of this Book of Remembrance. And when this book finally reach him, God enjoins him to gobble up His truth, this will become his new song! And one day, God’s servant will sing the words contained in this book.

GOD’S INSTRUMENTS IN WRITING THE NEW SONG

As quoted earlier, this book was given to the son of man whom God called to stand up and prophesy. Prophecies in the book of Isaiah confirm this. Notice how this new song is indeed associated with God’s Two Witnesses as shown in the 42nd and 49th chapters of the book of Isaiah when God gave them their commission.

Our article entitled, Cyrus, the Ravenous Bird from the East and the Two Witnesses reveals the calling and commission of God’s Two Witnesses. Consider also another article, The FOUR WINDS OF HEAVEN and the 200 Million Armies – THE SECOND WOE (Part 1) The Prophet Isaiah wrote that God will declare new things to His Two Witnesses.

Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.” (Isaiah 42:9-10)

These new things pertain to new revelations from God which are unknown to God’s Church. God revealed to His Two Witnesses, who are from the end of the earth, the  meaning of the events that are taking place in God’s Church and those things that are about to happen in this last end just before Jesus Christ returns to this earth.

The initial pouring of new things from God were written in a lengthy book called The Book of Remembrance. This book became a new song for the inhabitants of the isles to sing. The inhabitants of the isles are referring to the Remembrancers who are from the islands of the Philippines. They are now singing this new song before God and giving Him glory.

Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains. Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.” (Isaiah 42:11-12)

We can clearly see here that the Almighty God is the real author of The Book of Remembrance because those new things He declared to His Two Witnesses originated from Him. The imagery in Ezekiel 2:9 of a roll of a book in God’s hand being handed down to Mr. Gerald Flurry confirms that the true source of the prophecies written in that book is God.

God is the real composer of this new song which He commands His servants to sing. He wants His servants to proclaim His prophecies written in this Book of Remembrance. God tells His servants, “Make a loud gleeful noise about this book from God. Burst into singing this new song. Proclaim my prophecies to my people. Announce to the PCG members in the whole world that I am saving them!”

Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted. (Isaiah 49:13)

The heavens are to sing! God calls His Two Witnesses as heavens. Heaven is a symbol of the ministry. And the earth represents the members. God’s Two Witnesses are called heavens because God, in this last end, has created new heavens [new ministry] and a new earth [new members].

Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: (Isaiah 42:5)

Our article entitled, THY SERVANT in the Book of Psalms – A Prophecy About Mr. Gerald Flurry provides a more detailed explanation on this subject of new heavens and earth. This is talking about a new government and people or a new kingdom placed by God in the wilderness to temporarily separate them from His own Church (PCG) which is sinning against Him today. And God commissioned them to sing this new song.

Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains. (Isaiah 42:11)

This new kingdom is the ARK of God Foundation which now declares the new song contained in the Book of Remembrance. And what’s the purpose? It is to “lift up the villages Kedar inhabits.” The words, “their voice” are not in the original, and should not be in the translation. The ARK of God Foundation has to raise up the villages where Kedar is dwelling.

But who is Kedar?

Kedar was a son of Ishmael (Gen. 25:13), who was a son of Abram through Hagar.  The name Kedar means “dark.” Kedar, in this last end, is a type of Stephen Flurry who brought the whole PCG into darkness by introducing idolatry in the Church. He did this by making the PCG members worship the ministers instead of God, and bringing into the Church abominations through the observance of pagan practices.

The villages Kedar inhabits refer to Stephen’s dominion of God’s Church. The word villages means a yard as enclosed by a fence or a hamlet (small village) surrounded with walls. This is a picture of the PCG which has become a prison house.

God’s Two Witnesses with the Remembrancers are commanded by God to raise up the PCG from darkness. God is bringing them out of the bottomless pit of confusion. God’s heavens are taking the lead in singing this new song of God. Singing here is not about an actual singing or the literal singing of a singer of a particular song with lyrics and melody. In Bible language, to sing is to prophesy for God.

Singing songs is declaring God’s prophecies! God says, “Break forth into prophesying!”

God, through his mercy, has comforted His people when He sent the Book of Remembrance through His Two Witnesses. He moved them in producing this new song for His people. As a result, the Remembrancers became aware of what was going on inside God’s Church.  They understood why the members in the PCG are in affliction today, what God is doing at this moment, and His plan for the near future. The new song brought comfort to God’s people. But God shows us that not everyone is comforted yet. He will yet extend His mercy to His afflicted.

Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains: for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted. (Isaiah 49:13)

But who is “his afflicted?” Evidently, this refers to God’s servant, Mr. Gerald Flurry – the son of man who is in the midst of briers and thorns and living among scorpions. God will also extend mercy on him by giving him a new song, The Book of Remembrance.

EAT THAT YOU FIND

Without a doubt, one day, Mr. Gerald Flurry will get hold of the Book of Remembrance. Therefore, any future attempts by the PCG ministry to block this book from falling into the hands of Mr. Flurry will prove futile in the end.

God’s words will eventually be found!

The Prophet Jeremiah confirms this in his prophecy. The 15th chapter of the book of Jeremiah is a parallel prophecy to the 2nd and 3rd chapters of the book of Ezekiel. Jeremiah also prophesied about Mr. Gerald Flurry obtaining the Book of Remembrance.

Thy words were found, and I did eat them … (Jeremiah 15:16)

Through God’s hand or instrument, God’s words is going to be found by Mr. Gerald Flurry. In the opening verses of the 3rd chapter of the book of Ezekiel, God clearly instructs him to eat the Book of Remembrance.

Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel. So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll. (Ezekiel 3:1-2)

Mr. Gerald Flurry will not be rebellious like those ministers and members in the PCG. He will gobble up what is contained in this book. The prophet Jeremiah confirms the same.

Thy words were found, and I did eat them … (Jeremiah 15:16)

Now, notice the effect when Mr. Flurry eats the Book of Remembrance.

And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. (Ezekiel 3:3)

This new song will be honey for sweetness in Mr. Flurry’s mouth. Why honey for sweetness? Because he will learn many things in this book that were kept secret from him by his own son Stephen and his companions.

The wise in heart shall be called prudent: and the sweetness of the lips increaseth learning. (Proverbs 16:21)

He will begin to understand what truly happened to the Philadelphia Church of God during his watch. He will realize that God’s Church in this era has indeed turned into Laodicean.

Moreover, he will know the men who were responsible for the many abominations being committed in God’s church. He will understand the reason of his misery in the bottomless pit. And he will be able to identify the ministers who are the real cause of his suffering and disgrace. God’s words transcribed in the Book of Remembrance will be sweet to his taste.

How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! (Psalms 119:103)

Mr. Gerald Flurry will be able to speak God’s truth again in contrast to what he wrote in his article about the new stone of destiny in the July-August 2017 issue of the Royal Vision. The Prophet Jeremiah describes a similar effect after eating and digesting the Book of Remembrance.

Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts. (Jeremiah 15:16)

The heart is an emblem of the ministry. To him, this book is what will bring real joy to the ministry. He will be thrilled to learn that God has not left him despite the grim state and the fall of the PCG. – “for I am called by thy name”

GO SPEAK UNTO THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL

Once Mr. Flurry get hold of and read the Book of Remembrance, God will open his mind to the truth. He will know God’s will and how to correct the situation. He will know his commission from God as expressed in Ezekiel 3:1.

Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel. (Ezekiel 3:1)

After swallowing the book, God charges him to speak about it to the house of Israel or the PCG. The instruction is expressed in detail in verse 3.

And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee… (Ezekiel 3:3)

Mr. Flurry has to cause his belly and bowels eat the Book of Remembrance as well. Why the belly and bowels? What do these internal body organs represent?

The belly [stomach] and bowels [intestines] are digestive organs where the main process of food digestion occurs. These organs are the places where the food that we eat will change into a form that our body can absorb.

When we eat bread, it enters the belly. The belly churns the bread into smaller bits to release its nutrients which are then push to the bowels or intestines and finally send off into our body for energy and building new tissues and body parts.

The Bible compares the Church to a human body which is composed of various parts and systems (Romans 12:4-5, I Corinthians 12:12-27). The digestive system which includes primarily the belly and bowels can be compared to the ministry in the Church.

Just like the belly and bowels, it is the ministry’s job to break down the spiritual bread or God’s word into smaller chunks to release its nutrients which the body or the members eventually absorb for their spiritual sustenance and growth.

Notice also that the word bowels in Strong’s Concordance figuratively means the heart. And the word belly can mean bosom or the person’s chest, where the heart is located. And heart is a representation of the ministry.

To fill the belly and bowels with this new song means that Mr. Gerald Flurry has to force all the PCG ministers around the world, to eat The Book of Remembrance. This command from God clearly shows that all the PCG ministers will have to accept God’s truth contained in The Book of Remembrance – the very book they earlier rejected and branded as dissident literature.

As the belly and bowels were designed to bring nutrients to all parts of the body for energy and growth, this means that the ministry will have to transmit the same message to all the PCG members all over the world.

Will Stephen Flurry and his buddies willingly accept this new song once Mr. Gerald Flurry fills the PCG ministry with it? Similarly, will the members accept and agree to what is written in the Book of Remembrance? God cautioned Mr. Flurry to the probability of rejection of God’s truth contained in that book.

And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious. (Ezekiel 2:7)

The likelihood of acceptance of God’s truth written in the Book of Remembrance is very low. The majority of God’s people will not listen to him as prophesied. At the moment, Mr. Gerald Flurry’s hands are tied up because those PCG ministers surrounding him have put bands on him. He can’t do things freely. He can’t speak what is necessary.

But thou, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands upon thee, and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them: And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house. (Ezekiel 3:25-26)

In spite of all the wickedness and abominations being committed inside the Church, God has restrained Mr. Flurry in correcting his son, Stephen and his associates. He is powerless at the moment to set things straight in the Church. But that will change instantly when God sends him The Book of Remembrance. God will help him escape from the hands of his enemies.

A Psalm of David. Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight: My goodness, and my fortress; my high tower, and my deliverer; my shield, and he in whom I trust; who subdueth my people under me. (Psalms 144:1-2)

Once Mr. Gerald Flurry regain strength from God, he will wage war against the PCG ministers. He will trample them all to pieces. He will crush his own people under him by singing a new song for God.

I will sing a new song unto thee, O God: upon a psaltery and an instrument of ten strings will I sing praises unto thee. It is he that giveth salvation unto kings: who delivereth David his servant from the hurtful sword. Rid me, and deliver me from the hand of strange children, whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right hand is a right hand of falsehood: (Psalms 144:9-11)

The prophecy in the 144th chapter of the book of Psalms speaks also about the coming deliverance of God’s servant through The Book of Remembrance. God’s new song will liberate His servant from the clutches of Stephen and his men who daily speaks emptiness. Mr. Gerald Flurry will expose the deceitful works of his own son to the whole world. He will finally be able to reprove those PCG ministers for all their evil works.

After a long drought, the people will once again hear a new revelation from God. Mr. Flurry will explain the prophecies contained in the Book of Remembrance. And this new song will open the eyes of God’s people for they have become blind.

God also view the PCG ministers and members as dead spiritually who need His resurrection. And when God’s servant speaks about this new song, their eyes will be open to light again. They will finally know God’s truth and return again to Him. But only a small fraction will return.

A NEW SONG OF THE 144,000 SAINTS

In the 14th chapter of the book of Revelation, the Apostle John saw a vision with regard to this new song being sung by the 144,000 saints of God. This vision pertains to a lamb with the 144,000 firstfruits gathered in Mount Zion.

For a detailed explanation of this prophecy, please read our article titled, “Mount Zion and the 144,000 Firstfruits of God.”

Mount Zion and the 144,000 Firstfruits of God.png

The Apostle John saw them singing a new song before the throne of God.

And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.” (Revelation 14:1-5)

These 144,000 saints were redeemed from among the people (v.4), inside the Church, symbolized by the word earth (v.3). Notice that no other people could learn this new song except them. This means that all the 144,000 saints will have to learn what God has revealed in the Book of Remembrance.

If you were one of those who acquired the Book of Remembrance and followed the instruction of your minister to burn this book or throw it away, then you will not be included in the 144,000 firstfruits of God. Therefore, the ten percent remnant that will come out of the PCG will have to know also what God has written in this book.

AN ANGEL FLY IN THE MIDST OF HEAVEN

 After seeing the vision of the lamb with the 144,000 saints of God, John noticed another puzzling vision.

And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, (Revelation 14:6)

In this subsequent vision, John saw an angel flying in the midst of heaven. Who was this angel that John saw? God reveals what these symbols represent.

The word angel simply means a messenger or one sent to proclaim the message of God. In Strong’s Concordance it is also defined as “A PASTOR.” While “heaven” is a representation of the ministry in God’s Church. And the word fly means to ascend or rise. Hence, this angel flying in the midst of heaven refers to God’s messenger or A PASTOR ascending or rising in the midst of the ministry.

Who is this PASTOR who will rise in the midst of the ministry? Observe that he has in his possession an “everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people.” This PASTOR has a message from God which he has to deliver to this audience.

This PASTOR is none other than PASTOR General Gerald Flurry!

This vision of the Apostle John ties in with the vision God gave to the prophet Ezekiel. This vision is about the son of man who will rise from his despicable condition and carry out God’s command to “… speak to the house of Israel” (Ezekiel 3:1).

When Mr. Gerald Flurry finally awakens from his deep sleep, he will rise again in the midst of the PCG ministry and preach this everlasting gospel. This gospel is described as everlasting because it is connected with the everlasting kingdom which God has set up in this end-time as prophesied by the Prophet Daniel.

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.” (Daniel 2:44)

Daniel prophesied a kingdom that will continually exists because God is the one who will set it up. It is a dominion of divine origin.

I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. (Daniel 7:13-14)

This everlasting kingdom, as explained in our article entitled, The Four Great Beasts of Daniel 7 and the Everlasting Kingdom, refers to the ARK of God Foundation.

ARK of God logo

God gave the everlasting gospel to the ARK of God Foundation which He has set up in the isles or islands – the islands of the Philippines (Isaiah 42:10-12).

Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof. Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains. Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands. (Isaiah 42:10-12)

The everlasting gospel is the new song which God commanded the ARK of God Foundation to proclaim. It is God’s words contained in the book “The Last End: A Book of Remembrance.” Mr. Gerald Flurry will have in his possession this new song, The Book of Remembrance when he speak to them “… that dwell on the earth and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people” (Revelation 14:6). This audience refers to all ministers and members of the PCG in the whole world. Take note that the inspired word used by the Apostle John in this passage is preach which means to announce good news or to declare good tidings.

And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, (Revelation 14:6)

A Sabbath day is coming when Mr. Gerald Flurry will eagerly come up on stage of Armstrong Auditorium in Edmond, Oklahoma, carrying with him The Book of Remembrance to preach God’s message. He will talk about the many issues contained in this book. He will speak about the prophecies of God. The people in the PCG will be shocked when this extraordinary event happens. It will be a nightmare to the PCG ministers all over the world and also to all those members who ditched this book or rejected its message.

GRF and LEBOR

Although this message will traumatize the 25 men of Ezekiel 8 and their supporters, it will serve as a good news to the ten percent remnant who are still in captivity up to this very moment. Why a good news? Because this moment will be the hour of their release from the prison house.

During this period of time, Mr. Gerald Flurry will conduct an investigation of what really happened to God’s Church. He will know the men who are responsible for the introduction of all the abominations and wickedness into the Church. The hour of Mr. Flurry’s condemnation of those evil ministers is coming. This earth-shattering event is connected with the prophecy in Revelation 11 about God’s servant rising to measure God’s temple or God’s Church.

And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. (Revelation 11:1)

The word rise signifies a rousing from sleep or awaken. Notice also its other meanings in Strong’s Concordance:

to waken (transitively or intransitively), that is, rouse (literally from sleep, from sitting or lying, from disease, from death; or figuratively from obscurity, inactivity, ruins, nonexistence): – awake, lift (up), raise (again, up), rear up, (a-) rise (again, up), stand, take up.

God will one day awaken Mr. Flurry and direct him to measure the people inside His own Church – the ministry and the members. In order to measure the temple, a reed will be given to him.

A reed, according to Barnes Commentary, “denotes a plant with a jointed hollow stalk, growing in wet grounds. The Greek word for reed is kalamos. Strong’s Concordance defines the word reed, as follows:

“a reed (the plant or its stem, or that of a similar plant); by implication a pen: – pen, reed.”

In Thayer’s Greek Definitions, the word reed has the following meanings:

  1.  a reed
  2. a staff made of a reed, a reed staff
  3. a measuring reed or rod
  4. a writer’s reed, a pen

So, the word reed may refer to a writer’s reed or a pen that is used for writing. In ancient times, the reed was used as a pen. Thus, in III John 1:13, the Greek word kalamos is translated as pen. The Apostle John, in his third epistle, used the word reed to mean a pen for writing.

I had many things to write, but I will not with ink and pen write unto thee:

But, an actual or literal reed or writer’s pen can’t be used for measuring unless it symbolizes something. Notice that the reed or pen that was given him was “like unto a rod,” or similar to a rod. This word rod means “a staff or a wand of a shepherd.”

A shepherd uses a staff in tending the sheep. It is used to guide the sheep as they move forward. A sheep has a tendency to wander off from the flock. So, the shepherd uses this staff to jab the sheep and push it right back into the direction of the flock. Another use of the shepherd’s staff is for clutching a lamb for a close examination. It catches the lamb by the neck or leg and directs it to the inspection area. So, the reed or pen will be used just like how a shepherd uses his rod or staff in keeping his cattle in order – for guidance, direction, or correction.

The reed or pen must symbolized something in order use it as a shepherd’s staff. Moreover, you can’t use an actual pen to measure something. It’s not the pen itself but how it was used. A pen is a writing instrument regarded as a means of expression (Merriam-Webster). A pen can be used to produce a letter, document, essay, book, or any writings. Therefore, this reed or pen was used to produce a writing.

The reed or writer’s pen that will be given to Mr. Gerald Flurry denotes a writing that was produced with it. This writing will be used by Mr. Flurry just like how a shepherd uses his rod or staff. This reed, therefore, represents the Book of Remembrance which will be given to Mr. Gerald Flurry to rouse him from sleep and measure God’s Church. This book will cause him to awaken from his deep slumber. Observe that it was given first before the command to “rise, and measure ….”

But who will give him this book? Notice that an angel stood and speak to him. An angel or a messenger of God will stand and tell him to “rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.” The prophecy here is connected with the prophecy in Ezekiel chapters 2 and 3.

The angel in this vision is the same son of man mentioned in the beginning verses of the 2nd chapter of the book of Ezekiel (Ezekiel 2:1-5) whom God commanded to stand up for Him and commissioned to bring a warning message to the Philadelphia Church of God. This angel will tell Mr. Gerald Flurry to measure the Philadelphia Church of God by this reed or book which was to be given to him.

In Strong’s Concordance, this word measure means to ascertain in size by a fixed standard. Figuratively, it means to estimate. Here are some definitions for the word estimate in Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

  • To give or form a general idea about the value, size, or cost of (something) : to make an estimate of (something)
  • Appraise : [get meaning]
  • To judge tentatively or approximately the value, worth, or significance of
  • To determine roughly the size, extent, or nature of
  • Judge, conclude

The Book of Remembrance will be used as a fixed standard in finding out the true measure of the whole temple. With this Book of Remembrance, as a benchmark or yardstick, Mr. Gerald Flurry will precisely determine the true character of the PCG ministry and members. He will make an estimation of the true nature of God’s Church in this last end. He will ascertain if God’s Church has indeed committed all the evils mentioned in the book.

The Book of Remembrance will be Mr. Flurry’s instrument in measuring the Church of its true value or worth this end-time. He will question them based on God’s words revealed in the pages of the book. Finally he will make a judgment whether the PCG has sinned against God or not. Notice that there is a court that is part of the temple but located outside of the temple. The word court means a mansion, a hall, or a palace.

But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.” (Revelation 11:2)

This court, which is in the wilderness, refers to the ARK of God Foundation. Mr. Gerald Flurry will be told not to ascertain the true nature and character of this court because it was already measured by the Gentiles. The reed or the book was first given to them. Their true value is already known by their belief of God’s words written in the book.

The moment Mr. Gerald Flurry has finally awakened and begins to measure God’s Church, this will be the conclusion of the work of God’s Two Witnesses. And the THIRD WOE begins.

“The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” (Revelation 11:14-15)

An article will be written in the future that will explain in detail what will happen in the THIRD WOEAs Mr. Gerald Flurry measures the Church, he will find out its true colors. He will come to know the defects of God’s people and the evil works of the ministry. The Apostle John reveals the faults of the people which Mr. Gerald Flurry will include in his sermon when he speaks about the new song.

Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. (Revelation 14:7)

God’s people do not have the proper fear of Him anymore. Their fear have been redirected to human beings. Hence, they worship their ministers instead of God. They are following what their ministers are telling them and not what God is commanding them. And God’s glory has been taken away from Him and shifted to their ministers. Thus, Mr. Flurry will powerfully tell God’s people all over the world to redirect their fear back to God. He will tell them to repent before God for breaking His first and great commandment. The time has come for them to repent and fear God and to worship Him exclusively. It’s time to return to Him. The moment when Mr. Flurry preaches about this new song will be that hour of God’s judgment to His people.

Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. (Revelation 14:7)

The hour of God’s judgment pertains to a fraction of time of the Day of the Lord or the day of God’s judgment. This hour is within that Day of the Lord. The moment that is very close to the end when Jesus Christ will return to this earth.

BABYLON IS FALLEN, IS FALLEN

This shocking episode in the history of the Philadelphia Church of God is vividly described by the apostle John in the 18th chapter of the Book of Revelation.

And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. (Revelation 18:1)

The word “angel” in this verse is also defined in Strong’s Concordance as  “A PASTOR” who came from heaven or the ministry. Now who is this PASTOR who comes down from the ministry being mentioned here? This PASTOR is even being described as “having great power.”

Now the word “power” is defined in Thayer’s Lexicon as “power of authority, power of rule or government (the power of him whose will and commands must be submitted to by others and obeyed).” For emphasis, this pastor in the apostle John’s vision have great power of authority “whose will and commands must be submitted to by others and obeyed.”

Do you now know who this pastor is? It’s quite obvious that it’s referring to the Pastor General of the Philadelphia Church of God, Mr. Gerald Flurry whose power of authority far transcends beyond the PCG Headquarters in Edmond Oklahoma and whose will and commands must be submitted to and obeyed by other pastors and ministers around the world.

And what will Pastor General Gerald Flurry do?

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Revelation 18:2)

Again this angel or pastor who came down from the ministry in Revelation chapter 18 is none other than Mr. Gerald Flurry himself whose voice will be heard out of the Church! Now let’s consider the phrase, “and the earth was lightened with his glory” from verse 1. The word “lightened” is define in Thayer’s Lexicon this way:

  1. To bring to light, render evident
  2. To cause something to exist and thus come to light and become clear to all
  3. To enlighten, spiritually, imbue with saving knowledge

Enlighten in the dictionary means, “to give intellectual or spiritual understanding to; impart knowledge to”

The word “glory” in Thayer’s Lexicon can also be defined as “judgment.” With those definitions, verse 1 can be paraphrased this way:

And after these things I saw another pastor come down from the ministry, having great power of authority, whose will and commands must be submitted to and obeyed by other pastors and ministers around the world; and the Church was enlightened, spiritually imbued with saving knowledge through the judgment encapsulated in the Book of Remembrance.

Mr. Gerald Flurry would enlighten all the PCG members around the world by imparting to them spiritual understanding and saving knowledge with his disclosure of God’s judgment to the PCG as a whole through a sermon. And what would be the content of his sermon?

And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. (Revelation 18:2)

Mr. Gerald Flurry will cry mightily with a strong voice to discuss how the Philadelphia Church of God has become a habitation of demons. He will also to bring to light all their abominations that were documented in the Book of Remembrance and present it to them as an evidence of the true spiritual condition of the whole Church. It will become clear to all the PCG members the judgment regarding the rebellion and abominations they have committed against God and he will them that they have become the great whore of Revelation chapter 17.

For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. (Revelation 18:3)

The term “all nations” is a symbolic reference to all the PCG congregations around the world and Mr. Gerald Flurry will discuss in his sermon how all the members of the PCG have become rich and increased with goods, in short, he will tell everyone how they have become Laodicean themselves.

The Pastor General will enlighten them about the spiritual fornication of the PCG ministry with other pagan gods through their study of comparative religion, the proliferation of the Druidic Irish dance, the Babylonish Mother’s day, the abominable Cremation, etc. It would be a harsh judgment against the majority of the ministers and members of the Philadelphia Church of God around the world, yet as for the small minority, it will be unto their ears as a very lovely NEW SONG being delivered unto them.

This stunning event is the prophesied collapse of Babylon.

Our booklet entitled, Mystery Babylon the Great Unveiled At Last! reveals that God’s true Church, The Philadelphia Church of God is that great city which turned into Babylon the Great in this Laodicean era.

Mystery Babylon the Great - Unveiled At Last!.png

Hence, this is talking about the downfall of The Philadelphia Church of God – the great whore sitting on the beast and committing extreme harlotry and abominations against God (Revelation 17).

Notice the cause of her fall. She was forced to drink the wine of the wrath of God because of her fornication. “The wine of the wrath” is symbolic of God’s judgment on the evils that the PCG ministry has done and the people who followed their pernicious way. The wine of the wrath of God is included in the Book of Remembrance. And Babylon is compelled to drink the message in this book. Notice God’s judgment on those ministers and members who worship and support Stephen Flurry.

And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:” (Revelation 14:9-10)

Stephen’s supporters will not escape God’s wrath. They will have to swallow the wine of the wrath of God also. Imagine the moment when Mr. Gerald Flurry is delivering a message on stage and holding The Book of Remembrance in his hand. And he would say, “This book came from the mouth of the living God. This is God’s words about what has happened to the PCG.” And he will force them to swallow it, saying, “Drink this Book of Remembrance, Babylon! Drink the judgment of God for your fornication.”

What will be the reaction of the people in the PCG to these words of the Pastor General regarding his thoughts on the veracity of this book, especially those received a copy of it, read it, and rejected its message?

It will be a great earthquake to them! They will be terribly shaken by this sudden turn of event. Because they knew for a fact that their ministers ranked this book as dissident material. The Philadelphia Church of God will fall! And the preaching of God’s messenger to the Church of the Laodiceans about this new song will be the cause of her fall. This is the wine of the wrath of God – His final judgment on them. They will suffer extreme mental anguish when Mr. Gerald Flurry acknowledged this book as God’s truth. It will be a continuous torment on them.

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name. (Revelation 14:11)

Notice what Barnes Commentary says about their impending trouble. Barnes Commentary allude this event to the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

And the smoke of their torment – The smoke proceeding from their place of torment. This language is probably derived from the account of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, Gen_19:28; “And he (Abraham) looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace.” The destruction of these cities is regarded as an emblem of the destruction of the wicked, and the smoke that ascended from them as a representation of what ascends from the place where the wicked suffer forever…”

Eternal death is God’s punishment for the wicked. That’s why they will have no rest, day nor night, being in continuous torment, as they think about their fate. There will be no more eternal life for them but instead eternal death. From the time that they hear Mr. Gerald Flurry’s sermon, it will be a daily torment on them.

They will have to accept that the Book of Remembrance is correct. They will have to believe that God’s Church has indeed committed fornication, abominations and other evils as detailed in the book. Mr. Pedrito Cara, a senior minister of the PCG in the Philippines, told a former member of the PCG that Irish dancing, cremation, and Mother’s Day are not doctrinal.

Is the PCG not worshipping other Gods when they observe these pagan practices? And isn’t the prohibition of the worship of other gods a part of the basic doctrine of the PCG? How can a minister who has been in God’s true Church for more than 50 years now do not know and understand the basic doctrine of the Church? Has the PCG ministry already permitted the members to worship other gods? Well, they have included a subject called “Comparative Religion” in Armstrong College curricula.

PCG Comparative Religion

This only proves that Mr. Cara and the PCG ministers do not really know the true God of this universe. Also, their present mindset confirms that a widespread demon possession has indeed happened in God’s Church (Revelation 9:3-5). So, when the time comes that Mr. Gerald Flurry tells them that all these practices that they have introduced in God’s Church are pagan and that the Church has committed fornication, Mr. Cara, along with other PCG ministers, will eat their own words.

The Book of Remembrance will expose all the abominations that they have done inside God’s Church. This is the reason they have banned this book worldwide. God is furious at them and he will expose their sins in the eyes of the whole world.

DECLARE, PUBLISH AND CONCEAL NOT

God instructs His prophets to publicize His judgment against Babylon or the PCG to the whole world.

The word that the LORD spake against Babylon and against the land of the Chaldeans by Jeremiah the prophet. Declare ye among the nations, and publish, and set up a standard; publish, and conceal not: say, Babylon is taken, Bel is confounded, Merodach is broken in pieces; her idols are confounded, her images are broken in pieces. (Jeremiah 50:1-2)

God has laid a trap for Babylon and she is going to get caught in that trap. The self-same book that she enforced the people to burn is what will burn her in the end. She will be destroyed because of her blindness. The PCG is not aware of what God is planning to carry out very soon.

I have laid a snare for thee, and thou art also taken, O Babylon, and thou wast not aware: thou art found, and also caught, because thou hast striven against the LORD. (Jeremiah 50:24)

Babylon is ensnared. God has placed her in a position wherein it will be difficult for her to escape. God’s servant, Mr. Gerald Flurry, will eventually find out what she has become. She will be caught for all the evils she has committed against God. The ensnaring of Babylon is all God’s doing.

We have shown in a past article that the name Bel, which means “lord” or “master,” represents Stephen Flurry. He is the lord or master of Babylon. But why will Stephen be confounded? It is because he didn’t believe God’s truth contained in the Book of Remembrance. He contradicted what was written in the book in his Trumpet Daily presentation on October 10, 2013. Notice his remarks:

“There was that letter we read recently about the individual who said all these things about the original Elijah and the prophecy of the end time Elijah and he had all these ideas of how what that end time Elijah would be like, how it shake the nations and so on. And as we got into the actual history and what Jesus Himself said about the original Elijah you find that it’s very different than what that man thinks.” (The Trumpet Daily, Your Daily Duty; Time – 17:20 to 17:47)

He firmly believed that what’s written in the Book of Remembrance is just the scribe’s own ideas. His comment has clearly shown his stand point. There must have been a directive from him instructing all PCG ministers worldwide to inform the brethren to dispose of this book or destroy it if they come across a copy of it. Therefore, he’s going to be ashamed and confused when his own dad, Mr. Gerald Flurry tells the Church that God is the true author of this book.

Another man, who represents Merodach, will be in terror. Merodach, according to Jamieson, Fausset and Brown (JFB), was “another Babylonian idol; meaning in Syria ‘little lord’.” If Stephen Flurry is the “lord” or “master” in Babylon and Merodach is the “little lord,” Merodach, therefore, represents Brad Macdonald.

Bel and Merodach are the same Death and Hell of Revelation Chapter 6 – the riders of the pale horse in the Fourth Seal of the Seven Seals of the book of Revelation. They are the men in Edstone who are bringing sorrows and troubles to God’s servant, Mr. Gerald Flurry. God reveals that Brad Macdonald will be shattered and afraid when this prophesied event happens. And all the 25 men of Ezekiel 8 will be crushed and dismayed.

THE FALL OF THE MOST PROUD

The PCG ministers will suffer the same fate because they followed Stephen and made a covenant with him in destroying God’s people (Isaiah 28:14-15). They have “grown fat as the heifer at grass, and bellow as bulls.”

Because ye were glad, because ye rejoiced, O ye destroyers of mine heritage, because ye are grown fat as the heifer at grass, and bellow as bulls; (Jeremiah 50:11)

They became proud like their master, Stephen. And God is wrathful for their destruction of His people. Notice how Stephen Flurry is labelled by God.

Behold, I am against thee, O thou most proud, saith the Lord GOD of hosts: for thy day is come, the time that I will visit thee. (Jeremiah 50:31)

God calls Stephen, “most proud!” He is the epitome of arrogance or pompousness in the PCG. His haughtiness is demonstrated by his seizing control of God’s Church from God’s appointed messenger for this last era, Mr. Gerald Flurry. The day of Stephen is coming. God clearly shows that He is going to pay him a visit and and recompense him for all of the sins which he has committed.

And the most proud shall stumble and fall, and none shall raise him up : and I will kindle a fire in his cities, and it shall devour all round about him. (Jeremiah 50:32)

Stephen Flurry will be overthrown! The time is coming when no one will support or defend him. Even his closest friend, Brad Macdonald, will abandon him in the end. He will be left on his own. God reveals that He will ignite a fire in all Stephen’s dominion. The preaching about the Book of Remembrance will kindle that burning when Mr. Gerald Flurry finally awakens. That fiery message will spread in all PCG congregations in the whole world, scorching everyone who supports the most proud. Babylon will be deserted. No man will stay in the PCG anymore. This is the tragic end that awaits God’s Church.

And the land shall tremble and sorrow: for every purpose of the LORD shall be performed against Babylon, to make the land of Babylon a desolation without an inhabitant. (Jeremiah 51:29)

Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there, and the owls shall dwell therein: and it shall be no more inhabited for ever; neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation. As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the LORD; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein.” (Jeremiah 50:39-40)

Mr. Gerald Flurry will definitely leave the PCG! People may scoff at this bold declaration. But God’s word is sure. No son of man will stay in the PCG anymore. God’s servant will abandon the very institution which God has raised up through him. As a result, God’s Church will disintegrate. This is God’s judgment on Babylon. And God wants His vengeance for the massacre of His people to be declared also to the most proud and his army, and to all people inside the PCG.

The voice of them that flee and escape out of the land of Babylon, to declare in Zion the vengeance of the LORD our God, the vengeance of his temple. (Jeremiah 50:28)

What you are reading right now is the voice of them who were able to flee and escape out of prison house or God’s Church. This is the voice coming from the ARK of God Foundation and declaring the vengeance of God to the PCG. Stephen and his militia held captive the whole PCG and oppressed them. Until now, they refused to release them. They have committed a spiritual holocaust of epic proportion.

Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together: and all that took them captives held them fast; they refused to let them go.” (Jeremiah 50:33)

But God is liberating His people from the clutches of his enemies. This is about freeing the captives of Babylon.

A VICTORY FOR GOD

Though Babylon will collapse, a remnant will return to God.

In those days, and in that time, saith the LORD, the children of Israel shall come, they and the children of Judah together, going and weeping: they shall go, and seek the LORD their God. They shall ask the way to Zion with their faces thitherward, saying, Come, and let us join ourselves to the LORD in a perpetual covenant that shall not be forgotten. My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their restingplace. (Jeremiah 50:4-6)

Those who will listen to the voice coming out of the ARK of God Foundation and declaring the message of God will have a good chance of becoming part of the ten percent remnant who will come out of the PCG. God is showing His mercy and truth to God’s people now, just before the impending fall of Babylon.

He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. (Psalms 98:3)

He has revealed His truth to the ARK of God Foundation. He has shown them exactly how He is saving His people in this last end. And through this new song, God’s messenger and His ten percent remnant will come to know what God has done for them in this end. God will be triumphant in the end.

A Psalm. O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen [OR GENTILES]… Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm. With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King. Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.” (Psalms 98:1,2,4-9)

God’s new song is about His marvelous work through a small group which He raised up to accomplish His purpose for His people. He is using them right now to save His children in the PCG. They are now singing joyfully before God by proclaiming His salvation of His people and declaring His righteous judgment.

Do you want to sing this new song, too?
