Mystery of the Ages book

“Since last December I have been working diligently on the LARGEST AND MOST IMPORTANT BOOK IN MY LIFE. IN REAL FACT I FEEL I MYSELF DID NOT WRITE IT. Rather, I believe God used me in writing it. I CANDIDLY FEEL IT MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK SINCE THE BIBLE! We want to reach the largest audience possible with this book. I know you will feel the same way when you read it. “This new book Mystery of the Ages unveils all these mysteries. It puts the many different parts of the ‘jigsaw puzzle’ together. IT IS, IN FACT, A SYNOPSIS OF THE ENTIRE BIBLE. It is my prayer that you will read it along with your Bible—that it will make your Bible come alive and understandable. And with God’s Holy Spirit dwelling in you, I feel sure that it will. I AM NOW IN MY 94TH YEAR AND I FEEL THAT THIS BOOK IS THE MOST VALUABLE GIFT I COULD POSSIBLY GIVE YOU. This book is a partial expression of my thanks and gratitude to you for being a co-laborer with me and Jesus Christ. With all my heart, I do appreciate and thank God for your part with me in the wonderful work in these closing days” – HERBERT W. ARMSTRONG (September 23, 1985)

The Last End website

On September 5, 2004, a year after the Philadelphia Church of God won in the court battle against the Worldwide Church of God over the book, Mystery of the Ages and the other literatures written by Herbert W. Armstrong, the wife of Gerald Flurry, Barbara Jeanne, died of a congestive heart failure. From then on, many of God’s people around the world have suffered the inexplicable history repeating predicament written in Malachi’s Message at the very hands of the ministers whom they have trusted. All of God’s people were astonished and say in effect, “What’s going on?” Now, during this last end, a book of remembrance is prophesied to be written for those who truly fear God, and those who abuse God’s government.

Escape to Manila

 

With the rise of Nazism in the 1930s more than a thousand European Jews sought refuge in the Philippines, joining the small Jewish population of Manila. When the Japanese invaded the islands in 1941, the peaceful existence of the barely settled Jews filled with the kinds of uncertainties and oppression they thought they had left behind. Escape to Manila gathers the testimonies of thirty-six refugees, who describe the difficult journey to Manila, the lives they built there, and the events surrounding the Japanese invasion. Combining these accounts with historical and archival records, Manila newspapers, and U.S. government documents, Frank Ephraim constructs a detailed account of this little-known chapter of world history.
