Welcome Message - Statement of Purpose and Posting Guidelines


Hello everyone,

My journey in reading and studying the Scriptures began in 1967, during my first year of college, after being inspired by my older cousin, Joe, about the Bible.  He eventually became a pilot missionary, and later died in a crash.


At first, I enjoyed just reading the Scriptures.  Then I became interested in Christian Science.  Then I began listening to Herbert W. Armstrong on The World Tomorrow radio programs, a service of what became the Worldwide Church of God.  Then I was baptized and received the Holy Spirit through the laying on of hands on March 28, 1971 in Niles, Michigan by Ken Martin.  Since then I have been keeping the Annual Holydays of Leviticus 23, and the Commandments, as best as I can, as well as growing in knowledge and grace.

The Worldwide Church of God was subverted from within, and after Herbert W. Armstrong's death in 1986, has splintered into many separate groups.  This appears to be in accordance with the descriptions in Revelation 3 regarding the last two eras of the church started by the Messiah on Pentecost in 30 A.D.

Therefore, I believe we are currently living in last days of the Laodicean Church, the seventh era described in Revelation 3:14-22.  This means we are about to experience all of the events described in next two chapters of Revelation, Revelation 4 and 5.

After much study and meditation about these next two chapters, it has become my conviction that these two chapters corresponding directly to the next two Annual Holydays of Leviticus 23.  

Holyday #1, Passover was a BIG EVENT.  There is no reason to doubt that Holyday #2 and Holyday #3 will also be BIG EVENTS, just as the remaining last four Annual Holydays also portray BIG EVENTS that will occur on this planet.

I have created the following websites to explain this information in detail, with supporting evidence in the Scriptures and history:

I am looking forward to finding others on a similar path as mine, and to us sharing insights with each other about these next two imminent BIG EVENTS to occur on this planet.
