The Final Christian Message, to Planet Earth from SOCT/COGSR

SOCT Paper 113

The Final Christian Message,                             to Planet Earth from SOCT/COGSR

The people today who refuse the Revelation of the Seven Seals Scroll [hidden manna] will not have (written) in their bodies (sanctuaries: temples) the last and most important message which either destroys or saves! [Ezekiel 9:1-11] ~

Anybody who has been paying attention to the news can see that this planet is going in the wrong direction at all levels extremely fast. SOCT/COGSR offers a stern warning but also offers a Message of Hope. It has been the mission of SOCT to inform this planet about its ongoing and current dilemma. This world is now, as of August 9th 2014 at war. All we have to do is determine what percentage of this planets population is at odds with itself. The older religions of this planet have not evolved with current technology. Most all humans are living in the dark ages when it comes to true spirituality, philosophy and religion. We here at SOCTstate that: “The only truth is Truth itself!” We are no longer concerned with myth or ferry tale. It is time for humans to grow up or be terminated. ~

Humans are already destroying this planet faster than you think. We have not been taught properly by government funded schools. We should have been taught about the dangers of polluted religions, corrupt religio-political governments, pollution - and we should have been taught how to better take care of ourselves and our planet. Another very important truth we should have been told has to do with the reality of Extraterrestrials and Divine Intelligence. We have had so many chances to do much better but corrupt, greedy and ignorant leaders have continued to blind themselves and many others to the truth of what is really going on. ~

Mr. H.W.Armstrong (Founder of the 6th Church Era) stated regarding the Seven Seals Scroll: “At this same time, God Almighty is opening up NEW KNOWLEDGE. Mysteries of God, never before known or understood by man, are now revealed to God’s true servants!” [From 1958 booklet, “The Book of Revelation Unveiled at Last] God has been unfolding the Scroll ever since. Today, in the 7th Church Era we are receiving more spiritual food from God. In each church age God has chosen to work through “one man” to begin the feeding process. New light has been given to each one of the seven church eras. What made the sixth church era so important is that God completed giving the “key doctrines”; He restored the foundation that had been lost in previous church age apostasies. Now, in the 7th church age we are building on this foundation. ~

Much of this “New Knowledge” is being given to Humanity due to the founding of Science Of Christian Thought [SOCT]. SOCT was established through higher powers in the beginning of this Seventh Church age which officially started on October 7th 2011. It was then called COGSR (Church of God – Speaking to the Remnant). ~

We are living in the most exciting times mentioned in Scripture. We are at the cusp, right before the final fulfillment of the sealed message! God said of the sealed message that there was coming a day in which the church would understand. Those who are wayward in spirit will gain understanding; those who complain will accept instruction. [Isaiah 29:24] Because the Seven Sealed Scroll would be revealed: In that day the [spiritually] deaf will hear the words of the scroll, and out of gloom and darkness the eyes of the [spiritually] blind will see. [Isaiah 29:18] ~

                 This New unsealed knowledge has 
                           to do with understanding      

                      God on a new and Higher Level

Metaphorically speaking we use the “head” to represent logic & reason. When we speak of the “heart” we mean the emotions’, feelings & spiritual matters. The Science Of Christian Thought [SOCT] teaches that both must be exercised to arrive at a healthy FAITH. I have been saddened to hear many so called Christians say that: “Christianity is a heart thing and not a head thing.” Really? God gave us both of them to use why not use them when trying to develop a healthy relationship with Divine Intelligence? ~

To us, true faith is not blind!

Some faiths [religions/spiritual movements] ask their followers to simply “believe” without testing the information. Test the “spirits”. Yet Divine Intelligence commands us to: “Prove all things.” [1 Thessalonians 5:21] In context this means that we are to prove any doctrinal teachings that are presented to us from the Bible by using reason and God given logic. Some state that because the Bible says that we accept Christ on “faith alone” we need not “prove all things”. The fact is we come to Christ through the “ONE faith”. We also are commanded to “prove all things [doctrines]” using God's word. Notice: “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.” [Acts 17:11] The Bible says: “Now I beseech you, brethren [Christians], mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine [true teachings] which ye have learned; and avoid them.” [Romans 16:17] So there is truly “one faith” and “one body” [church] based on tested Truth. ~

The Bible also states that we can begin to understand Divine Intelligence through the study of God’s laws found in nature. “For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse.” [Romans 1:20] ~

Let me give you an example of what I am talking about: There is one Middle Eastern religion which follows a specific religious book. This book talks about specific ancient civilizations and peoples. It talks about how they lived, what they ate and explains the type of tools that they used and their dwelling places. On top of all of this it states exactly where they were supposedly located geographically. Yet, when archaeological excavations begin at these places in modern times nothing is found to substantiate the claims. ~

However, when archaeology has looked into the claims of the people mentioned in theChristian Bible the locations and civilizations have been discovered along with ancient writings mentioning by name the people spoken of in the Bible. Here we see “science” harmonizing with religion thus strengthening our Christian faith…it indeed deals with FACTS. ~

This doesn’t mean that just because certain ancient civilizations haven’t been found that they did not exist. I am simply making a point. We need to be careful to use both the “heart” and “the Head” when we arrive at sound conclusions. SOCT faith is not JUST a “head” thing nor is it just a “heart” thing. SOCT faith is balanced and practical. ~

Backward religions are killing and using fear to try a ‘make’ people believe in a BLIND FAITH, a faith not based on facts but instead on fallen human nature seeking self-glorification. False religions have hijacked the ignorant human mind and put it on the road to suicide but instead the religion stealth-fully refers to its dogma as “self-sacrifice”. ~

If I placed a book in front of you and demanded of you: “Believe in this book…just have faith!” Would you believe in it? Yet that is what many people have done without any thought. Gullible minds are walking into spiritual darkness. If you do have a religion SOCT challenges you to truly test it using ‘sound science’, ‘good logic’, ‘reason’ and ‘prayer’ by asking the Divine to help you sort through it all. If you truly SEEK you will indeed FIND. ~

Divine Intelligence is establishing something NEW!

Jeremiah proclaimed: “The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly.” [Jeremiah 23:20] ~

God’s true prophets have unraveled the Scroll for us perfectly! Where is the Seventh Messenger getting his information from? “But in the days of the voice of the Seventh Angel (messenger)when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finishedas he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” [Revelation 10:7] Notice, “…as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” So this seventh messenger is getting his knowledge from the prophets…God’s written word! ~

Listen dear saints: When God’s plan for human history is completely revealed, as it is being now through the understanding of the Seven Sealed Scroll, all prophecy will be fulfilled. The end of this age is soon to be completed. Did you get that? ALL PROPHECIES UNDERSTOOD AND FULFILLED! Only the Seventh Angel can reveal this final message to the church. [Revelation 10:7] ~

Jesus Christ has given His true Last Day Ministry [SOCT] that important spiritual food, the “hidden manna”. We now have the Hidden Doctrine that the COG offshoots do not! Listen to this spiritual fact: ~

“So this Spirit of Truth, this comforter is our assurance or down payment from God in our minds that we, the COGSR/SOCT, the only true church, are the sons of God. God has givenus the ability to understand the mystery of his will clearly. The apostle Paul gives a very clear description of his coming to understand God's will while addressing the Galatians, In Gal 1:11 he says "But I certify (guarantee) unto you brethren, that the gospel that was preached of me is not after (according)  men. vs12 "For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it(by manBUT BY THE REVELATION OF JESUS CHRIST", or by the Spirit of Truth. This is clearly explaining that Jesus Christ makes known unto us the mystery of God's will through Revelation, or just puts it in our minds.” ~

This is correct that only through God’s revelation can one come to the accurate knowledge of the Truth! When we look at the history of God’s people throughout the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings we see that God revealed Himself “progressively”. There is an unfolding of themes that occur in the Bible. This concept has been given the name ProgressiveRevelationEach church epoch has unfolded through progressive revelation. ~

Today, just as when Jesus walked this planet, there are false religious teachers who refuse to accept this Final Message. ~

Contemplate this most important fact: ~

These religious leaders [false leaders] could not grasp that they were in spiritual bondage to sin. So we see examples of how mankind void the spirit of God can only understand a false physics, while at the same time professing themselves to be so called "religious teachers". True Revelation is to accept God’s laws of Science alongside of true Spirituality. 2000 plus years and mankind hasn't changed much except for the worse. Religious leaders are still rejecting True Science. ~

Divine Intelligence now asking us to accept the Laws of Science

In the beginning of this Seventh Church time, that we entered on October 7th 2011, Divine Intelligence is asking us all to begin to understand the higher laws of science along with the new integration of it with pure theology. ~

Sadly many in the numerous different Christian denominations are teaching their people not to put any trust in science. What are they thinking? Didn't the Almighty create all the LAWS OF SCIENCE? Laws of science are not “mans laws”…they are God’s Laws! ~

We use God’s laws of science everyday. Do you have a television? A radio? A car? A microwave? A computer? A cell phone? Etc. You are using God’s laws of science everyday. Look at all the discoveries about God’s laws of science used in the medical field. Jesus was the “great healer”. Can we not use His laws of science to continue His work? ~

Seven Seals Message - the Final Message!

Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong said that the Seven Seals Revelation is the most important message of our time. The last words Jesus Christ gave to His church are found in the Seven Seals Revelation. Regarding the book of Revelation and the Seals Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong stated: “The time has come when this world MUST BE WARNED! The present strife between major nuclear powers – the constantly accelerating international tensions – the internal upward spiral within nations of crime, race riots, terrorism, violence of every sort – are combining to plunge the world into a holocaust of destruction and death such as never happened before – and never shall again!” [Mr. H.W.Armstrong, from; “The Book of Revelation Unveiled at Last”] ~

Who will understand this final message? Only those who are called of God and have His Holy Spirit shall truly understand (that is, only those who accept the Holy Spirit Mind Upgrade). [See 1 Corinthians 1:18-22: 2:10-14] Ultimately man cannot understand the Bible unless he or she is truly called of God or has the true Holy Spirit. [1 Corinthians 2:14] Also, “There is a way that seemeth right unto man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” [Proverbs 16:25]Many believe that they can just read their Bible's and use human intellect to understand. This is not what the Scriptures teach. This is one reason why God has offices in His church such as God appointed “teachers”. [Ephesians 4:11, 12] ~

The Bible teaches that only those who are “called of God” or “God's elect” (those who accept the Holy Spirit mind upgrade) will understand it. We can see that this makes sense if we analyze the Bible's effect on those who read it. It is clear that different people view the same book in radically different ways. True Christians see the Bible [also known as the 'Scriptures' or 'the Word of God'] as inerrant and infallible. They consider it's teachings to be perfect and unfailing. Others see it as purely human writings. Others view it as “good literature” but reject it's ultimate moral values. Can all these people be reading the same book? Indeed they can. ~

What makes the difference? We [true Christians] must understand that the message of the Bible operates between the human mind and the printed words. Only those who have been chosen to understand it can. Interestingly, the Bible itself makes a distinction between the human mind and the spiritual mind. Christians understand the “inspiration” of the Bible. That men spoke as they were “moved by the Holy Spirit”. Jesus Himself proclaimed: “The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.” [John 6:63] The apostle Paul further stated that unless a person is guided by the Holy Spirit he could not understand the Scriptures in a spiritual sense. ~

We Have the Message!

The Lord God [the Eternal] proclaims: ~

“Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! Saith the LORD. Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people: Ye have scattered my flock [created denominations], and driven them away, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the LORD. And will gather the remnant of my flock out of all countries whither I have driven them, and will bring them again to their folds; [COGSR home churches] and they shall be fruitful and increase.” (Jeremiah 23:1-3) ~

The false pastors of all the Laodicean groups and false denominations have scattered God’s flock.  This is mostly happening due to the fact that spirituality has refused to keep up with modern science. After the death of Mr. H.W.Armstrong “…they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts [fake teachers] of the field [splinter groups], when they were scattered.” (Ezekiel 34:5) God warns the false teachers: ~

“Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.” (Ezekiel 34:10) ~

God has not forgotten His true people nor has He left them without guidance. Jesus Christ promised; “For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.” (Mark 13:34-37) ~

God expects all who love and serve Him to keep free from false worship & false science. It says of Jesus: “Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity [lawlessness].” [Hebrews 1:9] True Christians [people of the Church of God COGSR/SOCT] will hate and avoid what is false and displeasing to God. Just as God called His true people out of ancient Babylon He today is calling His true people out of “spiritual” Babylon with the help and understanding of the final message, the Seven Seals Revelation!  SOCT teaches True Science & Pure Theology. ~

The Final Message speaks through the Body of SOCT

Please understand: This earth has been given a book which contains a basic story of this planet and a basic history of human interaction and development. This book is the Holy Bible. This book has become the basis of many religious movements. All the stories found in it can even be found in earlier records of religious development. ~

The Bible can be used as a spiritual text book and can be understood at many levels. We can look at it as an historical record, a moral record, a cultural record, a religious record; we can find its mystical messages, its numerological messages, its secret coded messages, etc. But most of all it is simply a HUMAN RECORD. ~

We can learn many important Truths from this book we call the Bible. At SOCT research centers we have found scientific knowledge coded in the book along with a more precise understanding of the seven day “re-creation” of the surface of our planet after the last ice-age [read SOCT document: “The Story of Our Planet”]. By the time Jesus Christ appeared and began to teach he himself began to use the knowledge of the Old Testament Scriptures as a foundation to teach even more advanced moral truths. ~

After Jesus Christ died and left his teachings with his students we find a spread in the knowledge which latter became known as “the Christian faith”. Written records started to appear claimed to have been written by some of the original students of Jesus. ~

Understanding New Revelations and Church Eras

SOCT students have been able to compartmentalize sections of time, blocks of human history, (the 7 Church Periods) which have helped track the development of the Jesus message. We have found that there have been six major divisions of the time in regards to the original message and its development. We now believe that as of October 7th 2011 we have entered the last stage and higher development of the Christian message. It culminated in the founding of the Church of God ~ Speaking to the Remnant [aka COGSR]. The ministry reached around the globe in a matter of two and ½ years. Ridiculed and attacked along the way. ~

New Phase of COGSR as of July 14th 2014

During the first year of the founding of COGSR I started an additional study group called the “Science OChristian Thought”. This small group of Christians who also studied science began to understand God’s laws of science in unity with the Bible and COGSR theology. I myself began to write with intensity new revelations that came to me regarding a greater and deeper understanding of my Christian faith. SOCT grew right along side of COGSR. ~

Finally on July 14th 2014 we came out of prayer with new insight and we now begin this new phase of Church of God ~ Speaking to the Remnant. We have decided to put all our attention on the SOCT studies. We have become what we call Space Age Christians. We have been given this new commission to help the current human race understand just where we all stand in regards to prophetic history and human development. Our theology has not changed but it has certainly been “upgraded”. We have always been teachable and this is how Divine Intelligence wants us to be. ~

The original COGSR & SOCT websites were taken down on June 23rd 2014. Both are now replaced with this, our new SOCT site. ~

We still believe in only One Way!

Please understand; We have not become some strange New Age group or religion!  Our theological teachings have not changed! We still believe that Jesus Christ built his ONE CHURCH and that this one church is receiving the ONE WAY MESSAGE of TRUE CHRSITIANITY. We believe that all true SOCT students make up the Christian body called “Church of God ~ Speaking to the Remnant”. We believe that the true Jesus Christ is the second person of the God Family that visited this planet some 2000 plus years ago. We believe and practice the Ten Commandments and we keep the Seven Holy Feast times as we have always done since the time of Jesus Christ himself. We keep the original Seventh Day Sabbath [Saturday]. These special times are the gateway into God’s time zone and the keeping of them opens up the spiritual portal to pure Christian Reality. ~

We still believe that we are in the “seventh church time” (Typical-Laodicea) which is the Laodicean period, the 7th. We believe that we are in the beginning portion of the seventh time and we thus call it the “typical Laodicean era”. We believe that we are keeping up with the current revelatory Truths of God’s people and God’s one true Church. Those who become SOCT students join us in becoming “new creatures” in Christ. ~

One Last Chance for True & Stable Peace!

SOCT students have been informed by Divine Intelligence that if enough people were to accept pure reality, the SOCT teachings, then this planet would enter a great time of peace and stability. This window is open between the typical & anti-typical Laodicean period. We are currently in the beginning of the typical Laodicean era. We entered this 7th era of time on October 7th 2011. The window is now open. Will we heed the message? Are we prepared to deal with REALITY? So far we have been proven not to be. ~

The human ‘collective’ subconscious mind has begun to address the great fear of self-destruction as witnessed and seen in the “Dooms Day Prepper” movements.  If enough hybrids come forth we may be able to bring stabilization to this planet. However, prophecies seem to indicate that humans will destroy this planet and only a small remnant, “the elect”, will survive to live on the New Earth within the New Heavens. ~

“If a modern politician was to stand up and truly accept the higher moral principles of our message and accept the reality of Divine Intelligence, Extraterrestrials & the saving of our planet then he/she would most certainly get our vote!”  ~ SOCT Hybrids

SOCT students are Hybrid Humans

Basically, true Christians who have the gift of the Holy Spirit and have accepted the Holy Bible and Book of Mormon are "spiritual hybrids" or "midwayers".

Space Age Christians involved with our ministry have produced extremely intelligent children. Christians who can understand the higher sciences and how new technology properly should interact with the Christian lifestyle. The intuitive capabilities of our SOCTchildren can be extremely amazing. We now believe, due to intense research, that many of us have developed new genetic functions within the human genes. This may seem impossible but it is indeed a fact! ~

SOCT students also have a greater understanding of the extraterrestrial reality than others who do not yet know about these revelations. It is true that SOCT students have the additional mind mechanism [Divine Mind or Holy Spirit] and are receiving insights which go far above the common thought process of the “normal” human being. We have been sharing our special revelations with a select group of scientists who are interested in what we have learned. ~

True Christians who have the ‘seed’ of the Holy Spirit in them are growing into a NewThought Process…they are using the Mind of Christ. “It does not matter at all whether or not one is circumcised; what does matter is being a NEW CREATURE.” [Galatians 6:15] Jesus said of His true followers that like Him they are “no part of this world.” Christians are truly a level above current humanity and its thinking process. We are still human and we still have all the human functions that everybody else has. What makes the Christian different is how he thinks and how he acts. A “Christian Clarity” develops: ~

Christian Clarity: Measurable degree of Christian maturity developed seen in choice making and character development. To see and understand proper doctrine [pure doctrine] and to know how to apply proper Christian teachings.” ~

When we die our spirit returns to God who gave it. The human spirit is like a computer chip that stores everything that we are. If while the chip was activated down here in a human body and that soul received the Holy Spirit then that person will receive a glorified body at the resurrection. However, the person who heard the message of Truth and decided to reject the “upgrade” - he will not survive the judgment. It is that simple. ~

Many believe that this fallen world of ‘matter’ is all that there is. They have rejected to see the Supreme Intelligence in the Laws of Creation. Instead most wish to have complete power over all laws of Creation and to become their own “gods”. This is a product of vanity and pride, the motive of fallen human nature. Fallen angels chose the wrong path and are operating in the air space around us. They excite the emotions of the lost to live in the passion of the moment without using loving reason and logic. True peace comes only through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. Man needs to understand his true purpose in life. ~

Christian Identity: Recognition of purpose for the glory of God in your person. Recognition of the human condition and what you have been “saved” from through Jesus Christ. The experience of true Christian Reality. Knowing your Christian purpose through MOCA.” ~

MOCA (pronounced, mocha) is the acronym for “Mind Of Christ Action”. True Christians are becoming “new beings” through the practice of mocha. When anyone is joined to Christ, he is a New Being; the old is gone, the new has come. [1 Corinthians 5:17] Fallen apostate churches and denominations are not teaching this truth. As we grow in Christ we begin to confront every situation with new insight. ~

Conversion: True conversion is an act but it is also an ongoing process. There is positional sanctification and the process of ongoing sanctification. All parts of our lives must face the reality of conversion at some point.” ~

There is not a religion on the face of this planet that is of God except the true religion that God Himself brought in the person of Jesus Christ. You say; “I do not believe that!” Well, your issue is not with me but with God Himself. We believe in God’s word. He wrote through men and women as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. “For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by Holy Ghost.” [2 Peter 1:21] All false ideologies and so called religions are corrupted with corrupt interpretations. What did God promise through all of the prophets of old? He promised to send ONE SAVIOR – He did not send more than one final savior! That one Savior is JESUS CHRIST! ~

Evolution is a constant birthing process

We here at Science Of Christian Thought truly believe and embrace the idea of the constant process of healthy change. We have changed many of our beliefs throughout the years as we have learned more and continue to be bold and truly humble Christians through this process. ~

Mankind’s idea of Deity has evolved throughout time. In ancient past humans looked at early Extraterrestrial visits as visits by “the gods”. After a belief in many gods came the realization of ONE SOURCE, one mind and or “one Spirit”. As mankind learns that there are many life forms not just on this planet but also swimming throughout the universe he begins to understand that all life is a mere reflection of something much greater. ~

Man began to understand that there is ultimately One Mind producing many manifestations. There is in fact multiplicity in unity. Man begins to understand that all is operating in Divine Law. As Humans we expand our understanding of these precious laws throughout time. We begin to use these laws to do good things; at least we should try and only use them for good things. As we begin to collectively understand Human oneness our Prime Directive [to survive] will manifest itself collectively…Humans will no longer just care about themselves but for the whole of the Human race. ~

We teach this message in detail to Humanity through what we call the Seventh Message. ~

SOCT students forming a Divine Mind Channel Grid

True SOCT students are those who visit this site and read and study all material found here. They have accepted Jesus Christ as their God personality. They have asked to receive and have received the Holy Spirit [Divine Mind operative in them]. Those who have the Holy Spirit have the true link to the Divine Mind Channel. This makes them amidway being or a midwayer. There are several socters [SOCT students] now residing in many different parts of the earth. We form a network, a linkage which forms the pure reality grid. It is this grid which is to hopefully become strong enough for further preservation of our planet. More must accept this final Seventh Message to make the grid strong enough. ~

This pure reality grid (also known as: Divine Mind Channel Grid) is what can help hold together this fallen planet of ours but more people must join the crew before this can happen. We are living in the Seventh Time and there has been a grace period allotted to us. We must take advantage of this most important time and study and share the SOCT message. To all of those students who have received the Holy Spirit you must understand: fused beings are twofold but they are truly only one special personality. This personality has now received theupgrade. ~


SOCT History of the Church of the First Born

All Mormon Christians should read this and pay attention. This is a foundational understanding to becoming aSeventh Message Mormon. If you do not understand this basic outline of the Christian Church as it moves through time you will not truly understand the Seventh Message which has come forth to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and indeed to the entire world in this the seventh-time. You must grasp this message and all of what it contains. You must understand just where the church is in prophetic history. May you be brought here by the Holy Spirit and may you be sealed with this final day message.

When we look at the seven churches mentioned in the book of Revelation they represent the Church of God through time. The historical Church of God has always taught that the seven churches mentioned in the book of Revelation progressively represent the state of God's Church throughout history. These progressions link God's people throughout time. ~

The linkage begins in AD31 on Pentecost when the church was first organized. The chain stretches through history down to the Day of the Lord [the second coming]. This means that the seven churches mentioned in the book of Revelation represent the consecutive and differing spiritual states of the Church throughout time. These seven are the Ephesus period, the Smyrna period, the Pergamos period, the Thyatira period, the Sardis period, the Philadelphia period and the Laodicea schism. ~

First Era

In the book of Revelation found at the end of the Jewish record of Holy Scripture we read about the seven churches. These churches show the direction of God’s church throughout time down until our very day. The first church mentioned is that of Ephesus. This was the early apostolic time period…the apostles were busy sharing the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. This period lasted up until about 98 AD. [Revelation 2:13] ~

The early apostles reached all the way to India and what we now call the British Isles. This early apostolic period was not easy. All of the apostles suffered and experienced hardships and died for the preaching of the gospel. ~

Second Era

The second period of the church is known as the Smyrna period. Many of the early Christians lived in Asia Minor which was a city of Smyrna. The famous disciple Polycarp appeared and worked during this era of the church. It was during this era that the Roman Catholic heresy began. The Papacy was born and became a powerful fallen church which was teaching many false doctrines. They did not have the true priesthood power. They practiced “priest craft” [false Christianity] and pretended to have authority. ~

It was during this period of Smyrna that the Great Apostasy truly began. This would last all the way up until the “dispensation of the fullness of times” when the prophet Joseph Smith would appear to restore the true Gospel and the Priesthood which occurred during the fifth era of the church, that of Sardis. ~

Third Era

We now come to the third church era known as the Pergamos era. In this period many more false doctrines crept into the church. This took place in the known area of Armenia. Symbolically referred to as the church time of Pergamos. Pergamos was the center of the Babylonian Mysteries. The Eastern fallen and pagan Church of Rome had migrated around Armenia, thus it was called, “where Satan’s seat is.” ~

This was a time when priest craft flourished. The Book of Mormon warned about this time. Ancient prophets on the American continent foresaw this dreadful time of the church which still exists today in all the false denominations. ~

Fourth Era

The fourth period of the church is known as the Thyatira era.  Though the true priesthood was lost at this time God did keep a small band of faithful Christians. These Christians had nuggets of truth and God’s Spirit was still leading a very small faithful band of true believers. God always preserves a remnant. It was during this time under a small faithful band that the issue of the fourth commandment, the Sabbath Day came under attack because of the great apostasy. The Roman Church had distorted this commandment and deleted the important understanding of the Holy Feast Days. ~

A small group of Christians known as the Waldenses fought to keep the true Saturday Sabbath holy during this time of persecution. This all happened around the year 1161 AD. Today this doctrine has properly been restored through the ministry of Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong (1892-1986) under the Philadelphia era of the church. It has since been restored to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in our present “seventh church era” [typical Laodicean era] which started on October 7th 2011 and is part of what has become known as the “Seventh Message” to the church. ~

Fifth Era

This fifth era is the Sardis era. It started in the year 1585 AD and extended into the 19th century. The Christian message had extended throughout England in this era and many true and faithful Christians arrived in America as early as the 1600’s. Even the true Sabbath message had reached America during this time though not many Christians got to hear or receive it. ~

It was during this very important time of the church as it has flowed through prophetic history that Heavenly Father [God, Divine Intelligence] chose a prophet to restore the true gospel and the priesthood to the earth. This prophet was Joseph Smith. In 18 29 AD God restored the priesthood authority to His church and many other important ordinances. The visible 12 apostles were ordained, temples were built and many doctrines were restored to the church. ~

Latter day Scripture was revealed and brought forth called the Book of Mormon. The book is a record of God’s people on the American continent. ~

After the prophet Joseph Smith was martyred the Secret Twelve Apostles were ordained and the church broke into two main factions. Brigham Young took the bulk of the church to Utah while the secret apostles stayed for some time in the eastern states and went underground, so to speak to protect the teachings. ~

Since this time the priesthood can never ever be taken from our planet again. ~

Sixth Era

The sixth era is that of Philadelphia. This is the time that the true church holds to. This is the only church that Jesus Christ had no problems with. Even though we are in the seventh church era which is that of Laodicea we are trying to keep people in the spiritual state of Philadelphia. When God originally completed His work during the re-creation of our planet on the sixth day all was perfect and thus it was. This sixth church time is extremely important to understand and we urge all SOCT students to study this period of the church. ~

It was during this era which began in the 1930’s that God used the man Herbert W. Armstrong to restore 18 important truths to the church. God informed him to name the church, the Worldwide Church of God. This was indeed a remnant of the true church and we recognize that it was a branch of the true church. Herbert W. Armstrong was not a Mormon and neither he or his congregations accepted the Mormon message but that was not his mission. ~

*Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong also taught in agreement with the prophet Joseph Smith that America was made up and founded by the literal tribes of Israel. ~

He was an apostle who did receive secretly the priesthood but never came public with his authority to teach…instead Heavenly Father used him for specific things regarding doctrinal fulfillments. After his death the Worldwide Church of God was broken apart. This all happened for a reason. Those who experienced Christianity in the Worldwide Church of God were to go through many trials up until they were to accept the Book of Mormon along with many of the truths that God revealed to Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. This did not occur until October 7th 2011 under the calling of Mr. Eric William King. ~

So the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been given a message from this remnant known as the Worldwide Church of God and has in fact been given this new name, Worldwide Church of God in our present seventh era. Through this movement Heavenly Father has restored even more truth to His church particularly regarding God’s true Holy Sabbath Day and true Holy Feast Days. The prophet Joseph Smith saw this day coming when it was revealed to him the following in the Doctrines & Covenants: ~

“And also, if there be bounds set to the heavens or to the seas, or to the dry land, or to the sun, moon, or stars…All the times of their revolutions, all the appointed days, months, and years, and all the days of their days, months, and years, and all their glories, laws, and SET TIMES, shall be revealed in the days of the dispensation of the fullness of times…According to that which was ordained in the midst of the Council of the eternal God of all other gods before this world was, that should be reserved unto the finishing and the end thereof, when every man shall enter into his eternal presence and into his immortal rest.” – DC, 121:30-32 (July 8th, 1838) ~

Heavenly Father [Divine Intelligence] used the movement started by Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong to bring this revelation to fulfillment. These teachings have now been restored to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in our present seventh church era…that of Laodicea. ~

The Seventh Era

Our present church era is the Laodicean era. This era comes in two parts: first the typical-Laodicean era. We are currently experiencing the typical-Laodicean era which started on October 7th 2011 when two of the secret 12 apostles appeared to Mr. Eric William King and ordained and anointed him to bring forth what we now know to be the Seventh Message. ~

It was through Sir Eric William King that Heavenly Father merged the Worldwide Church of God reformation to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This was prophesied to occur by Joseph Smith himself. It was revealed to Joseph Smith: ~

“God shall give unto you knowledge by his Holy Spirit, yea, by the unspeakable gift of the Holy Ghost, that has not been revealed since the world was until now; Which our forefathers have awaited with anxious expectation to be revealed in the last times, which their minds were pointed to by the angels, as held in reserve for the fullness of their glory; A time to come in which nothing shall be withheld, whether there be one God or many gods’ they shall be manifest.” – DC, 121:26-28 (July 8th, 1838) ~

Our present Laodicean time is a time in which “nothing shall be withheld”. Only pride will prevent people from accepting this message. ~

“Yea, wo be unto him that saith: We have received, and we need no more!” – 2 Nephi 28:27

“Wo be unto him that shall say: We have received the word of God, and we need no more of the word of God, for we have enough!” – 2 Nephi 28:29

We have yet to enter the second phase of the Laodicean era. The second phase is called the anti-typical Laodicean period and this will commence at the beginning of the Great Tribulation, the finality of the end times. ~

We hope that this has helped you come to a better understanding of the Seventh Message for the Worldwide Church of God and the Latter-day Saints [LDS Church]. Christians who have accepted this message have become known as Seventh Message Mormons. ~

~May you gain peace profound.

Note: Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong was the first of the Secret Twelve Apostles to be brought to the public.

There was the “Great Apostasy” and smaller apostasies at the end of each Church Age

“Chaos always pops its head up when one thing is transitioning to another.” ~ E.W.King

Dear saints, please understand. Those of you who have studied the Seven Church eras must understand that in between each church era there is a miniature “great apostasy” .Why? Transitioning from one major time period to another is never easy. The first “great apostasy” occurred between the first and second church age. This apostasy lasted very long and actually extended all the way up until the 5th Church Era, that of Sardis. There were of course smaller apostasies that occurred in that time between church eras. ~

The prophet Joseph Smith appeared in the 5th Church Era [Sardis] and restored the true Gospel of Jesus Christ which had been distorted in the past ages. He was lead by Heavenly Father to restore a great portion of hidden Scripture which has come to light as the Book of Mormon. ~

After his death [murder] there was of course another small apostasy as many were confused about church leadership. ~

When we entered the 6th Church Era there was even more doctrinal truth restored through the apostle Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong [18 new truths]. After Mr. Armstrong’s death the church entered yet another “great apostasy” going through the transition period into the final 7th Church period of time which we are now in. So please remember this as you study along in God’s word. ~

Eric William King

It wasn’t until the beginning of the seventh church era which started on October 7th 2011 that the remnants of the Worldwide Church of God accepted the Book of Mormon under the last day ministry of “Church of God – Speaking to the Remnant” and many Mormon Christians accepted the new light given to them by Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong’s teachings. A merging began and it was through this Divine Growth that the seventh church era began, the typical-Laodicea era.
