"Behold,  I am coming quickly!  Hold fast  what you have, that no one may take your crown."  (Rev. 3:11 NKJV)
 
 
Please click below where it says "CLICK HERE" to hear a VERY IMPORTANT soundbite from Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong (concerning Elijah).  It only takes about a minute to play.

Keeping the plain truth PLAIN.......

One of the purposes of this website is to establish a point of contact for those who are interested in HOLDING FAST to the doctrines and truth restored here in the end time by Jesus Christ through His servant Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. It is also for the purpose of bringing back into REMEMBRANCE those things which we were taught concerning specific subjects. Subjects that are willfully or conveniently "overlooked" by so many today.

We are a growing group (Church) of scattered brethren NOT associated with any other group or "offshoot" of the former Worldwide Church of God.  We fully realize that we are in the prophesied end time Laodicean era of the Church. The Church of God today which SHOULD be an "organized" spiritual organism ALL speaking the SAME thing, is splintered, scattered and confused. Each splinter group is teaching or preaching its own "version" of the gospel, and each group is teaching it's own version of what it perceives as "the truth", INSTEAD of holding on to what Christ ALREADY revealed to His people in the end time through His chosen apostle - Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong.

However to those who are "holding fast" to the truths restored by Jesus Christ through Mr. Armstrong, wherever they may be, one here or two there, they ARE INDEED the Body of Christ. So the true Body of Christ is scattered today, at least for the time being. But prophecy clearly shows that will soon change. (Ezek. 34:10-12, Jer. 3:14)

Please take the time to read through the articles posted on this site, and listen to the sermons on the "audio messages" page. They will show what has happened to God's ministry today, and what God Himself will soon do about it. These articles and audio messages will also paint a CLEAR PICTURE of what has happened to God's Church today (and WHY) and what exactly the "Work of God" is in these final days of man's rule.

We are not seeking "new members" for the sake of adding to our membership. However we are seeking those of like mind for the purpose of fellowship and unity in the faith once delivered, and those who desire to return to the true Body of Christ. REMEMBER, God is a FAMILY!  God's Church is a SPIRITUAL ORGANISM not just a physical organization.

We do not argue or contend over the Word of God. We simply believe that God used Mr. Armstrong as the end time Elijah to restore ALL things, that we need to attain our crowns (eternal life), and we are simply striving to HOLD FAST to those things. Hence the name of this website HOLD FAST to ALL THINGS (Rev. 3:11 & Matt. 17:11). Remember, God said in His Word that He would send ONE man (not many men) in the end time to prepare THE WAY (not many ways) before the return of Christ. (Malachi 3:1 & Isaiah 40:3)

Scattered though we may be, we are still of ONE body, ONE mind and ONE spirit.  Jesus Christ, the master builder, said that He would build His Church and that the gates of the grave would not prevail against it. This is absolute truth. His Church is still alive and well today! We were all given the keys long ago showing where that Church is and how to identify it. Do we remember?

We also believe that Mr. Armstrong was used to FULFILL Matt. 24:14, and that it is now fulfilled prophecy (preaching the gospel to the world as a witness). He was the end time Zerubbabel and Ezekiel Watchman and the Philadelphia Messenger, as well as the last Apostle of the Church age.  These are things that we all believed at one time as members of the WCG while Mr. Armstrong was still alive. But now 27 years after his death, many have forgotton or willfully departed from most or all of these teachings.

So again, one of the primary purposes and goals of this website to help us all REMEMBER what we were taught, and to serve as a point of contact for those who are of "like mind".

It is in THIS context, that the people of God are being warned to WAKE UP!  Undoubtedly many will be offended by the message contained within this website. Indeed many already have been offended. But others who are AWAKE or waking up, "see it" right away, and respond in a positive way.

Many were offended by Christ's message (the VERY Son of God!) and indeed many were offended by Mr. Armstrong's message, which was actually given by Christ THROUGH him. So it is no different today 27 years after the death of Mr. Armstrong. Many (even of God's own people) also WILL BE offended by the message or testimony of God's two witnesses when they come on the scene.

Why is this, that they will be offended? Because it will not be the message that they "thought" it would be!  And it probably will not come from two men whom they "thought" it should come from.  They will fail to recognize or remember that it is reallly GOD'S message, not a message from men.

If you would like to understand more about this and other topics that God revealed to us through Mr. Armstrong, then PLEASE consider the information on this website. It is all written in a plain and simple style so that all should be able to understand.

Dedication:

This website and the warning contained therein, is dedicated to the honor and glory of The Great God. Not to just any god. Not the god of this world and certainly not the god of protestant mainstream "Christianity". Nor to the many gods (ways and beliefs) of the many splits and divisions of God’s people (churches) today, nor to any other false god. This website is dedicated to the true God and Creator of all. The God of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob. The God of ELIJAH of the Old Testament, who had such FAITH that when he prayed, God instantly answered! And to the God of the end-time Elijah whom Jesus Christ prophesied would come to restore all things and prepare "the way" for Christ’s second coming.  And God DID fulfill this promise.  It is to THIS God, the one and only true God, that we humbly dedicate this website and indeed our very lives.

If after reading and listening to the information on this website, you desire to be a part of this warning work or to become a coworker with us, please see the "How To Support This Work" page at the left side of this page, or go to the "Local Congregations" page.
