The Dispensation of the Fullness of Times …the final dispensation

SOCT Intro

Eric William King, Called to Serve

The Dispensation of the Fullness of Times
…the final dispensation
Seventh Message Truth for the Church: By Prophet Eric William King (December 12th 2016)
*Read this entire paper. This paper is the crowning work describing the beginning of the Seventh Church time and declares Eric William King to be the prophet of God in this final church era. Read and pray.

Just what is a “dispensation” from a Christian perspective? A dispensation stands for a moral and doctrinal probationary period in this world’s history. In some dispensations new covenants were given to God’s people. A covenant is an agreement based on promises. Dispensations and covenants show that God has been in relationship with His people from the very beginning. In this very important SOCT paper we shall look into this subject with some detail. ~

In SOCT theology we sometimes refer to “ages” such as the first” and “second Earth age”. When we use the word age in regards to “Earth ages” we mean physical changes. Finally we use the word “era”. When we talk about the seven phases of the Christian Church since the life of Christ we talk of “church eras” and there are seven of these eras since the life of Christ. We have sometimes referred to the church eras as ages but to be more accurate they are eras. ~

1-Dispensation = A dispensation stands for a moral and doctrinal probationary period in this world’s history. In some dispensations new covenants were given to God’s people. ~

2-Ages = When we use the word age in regards to “Earth ages” we mean physical changes and we recognize two major Earth ages; the pre-Adamic Earth age and the post-Adamic Earth age.~

3-Eras = When we talk about the seven phases of the Christian Church since the life of Christ we talk of “church eras” and there are seven of these eras since the life of Christ. . We have sometimes referred to the church eras as ages but to be more accurate they are eras. ~

“the dispensation of the fullness of times”

First let us look at the final dispensation that was given to this planet and that is “the dispensation of the fullness of times”. When Jesus Christ came to our planet He built up His church and organized it. After He was crucified and resurrected to heaven the 1st Church Era began. 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. In this first church era the apostles traveled and gave the Gospel Message of Jesus Christ to as many as would receive it. They ordained disciples with the Aronic and Melchizedek priesthood which gave them authority so that they could also teach and baptize. This first church era lasted up until around 98 AD. ~

After the last of the original apostles died things went bad. False teachings began to creep into the church and this created what is called “apostasy”. Apostasy [Greek: apostasia] means a withdrawal or a falling away from the right path. There have always been evil people on this planet who wish to stop the true Christian message. This had already started while the first apostles were still alive. Apostle Paul confronted many who sought to teach false messages. Many tried to teach their old pagan ways and tried to mix them with the Christian teachings. Some did this secretly and some did this openly. It got so bad after some time that the original organization that Jesus Christ established was badly distorted and the church became corrupt. ~

The Roman government basically hijacked the true Christian church and turned it into a pagan playground for political gain. The people lost the true meaning of the Gospel Message and lost the understanding of God’s love. They even lost touch with what the purpose of life was. Practicing false Christianity under a false priesthood is called “priest-craft”. Rome is basically the mother of priestcraft. ~

The apostle Paul warned this first Ephesus era church: “I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.” – Acts 20:29,30 ~

Jesus says of the first era [Ephesus] church: “…and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars.” (Revelation 2:2) ~So we see that the Great Apostasy had begun. Apostle Paul gave a prophecy about this Great Apostasy: “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of the Lord is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away [apostasy] first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3. ~

The Church Eras are not Dispensations

The church eras are not dispensations but are time periods of the Christian Church up until and through the “dispensation of the fullness of times”. ~

Please remember: The apostle John in the book of Revelation spoke of seven eras of the church. These eras all take place within the great apostasy and the “dispensation of the fullness of times” which occurred in the fifth church era when God called forth Joseph Smith to restore the true gospel and the priesthood authority. These eras start after Jesus Christ resurrected and ascended to heaven. The first church era covers the early apostolic church, during the time of the original apostles. The first church era ended around 98 AD. Then the second church era began. It was during this second church era that the Great Apostasy started with full force. The second through the fourth church era constitute the time of the Great Apostasy. God has always promised to “keep a remnant” of his people on earth. Even though the gospel had become distorted and many parts of the gospel message became completely hidden from the inhabitants of the earth there were still sincere seekers after Jesus Christ and the true message. In this sense there were still Christians on earth. The Holy Spirit was still here calling and working with the hearts of men. ~

During the great apostasy [church eras 2 through 4] the Aronic and Melchizedek priesthood were taken from the Earth so nobody really had the authority to teach correct and proper doctrine. The Holy Spirit still worked with the honest seekers and some truths were still being practiced. Through the remainder of these three church eras [Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira] more and more truth became more and more distorted. The apostle John explains this process in the book of Revelation. Jesus Christ gives counsel to each one of these Churches [outlined as geographical locations] and explains what the problems were through His messages to the Seven Churches outlined in the book of Revelation [Revelation ch2 through ch3]. ~

The first four church eras appear to have taken place in what the apostle Paul calls “the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward.” (Ephesians 3:1,2)

The 5th church era ~ Sardis

In the 5th Church Era, that of Sardis begins the “Dispensation of the fullness of times”. Heavenly Father chose this church era to do His “marvelous work and wonder” (Isaiah 29:14).  Jesus gave this counsel to the Sardis church: “Thou hast a few names in Sardis [Joseph Smith and Sidney Rigdon] which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me [Jesus] in white: for they are worthy.” (Revelation 3:4). It would be during this fifth church era that God would restore the true gospel message to planet Earth and also restore the priesthood. Temple authority and temple rites would be restored. ~

During the great apostasy men organized churches that claimed to be teaching true doctrines but they all taught conflicting doctrines. The confusion was spread throughout the earth. There was even anger and contention of the Christian faith just as there still is for many today who have not yet received the Seventh Message and the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. ~

The Restoration

The bible foretold of this time. God through the prophet Amos stated: “..a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor of thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord…They shall…seek the word of the Lord, and shall not find it.” (Amos 8:11,12) God through His grace and mercy promised that He would fix the fallen condition of His Church. Through the prophet Isaiah He stated: “I will proceed to do a marvelous work among this people, even a marvelous work and wonder.” (Isaiah 29:14) ~

For 1,700 years since the first church era people had walked in confusion and darkness regarding the “fullness of the gospel” but now God in His great mercy and compassion would do a great work of restoration. In the spring of 1820 a marvelous event occurred regarding a young boy and his search for truth. This young man was Joseph Smith. Joseph was inquiring at a young age just what was and where was the true Church of God. One day he retired to a quite place in the forest to pray to Heavenly Father and ask with faith what to do regarding the extremely important question. He followed the counsel of James who said: “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.” (James 1:5-7) ~

Joseph Smith was then through prayer, faith, hope and love given a great vision and many things were revealed to him. Through many more revelations throughout his life he was instructed by Heavenly Father to find and bring forth what has become known as the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ. Through Joseph Smith the true gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to this Earth along with temple blessings and the restored priesthood. Thus began and commenced the dispensation of the fullness of times. The apostle Paul talked about this time: “That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him.” (Ephesians 1:10) ~

After the death of the Prophet

Joseph Smith did such a great work through the power of the Holy Spirit. He built many churches and through the restored gospel many people [hundreds, yea thousands] came forth and were baptized. The church grew and spread. After some time persecution on the saints began. There was great opposition. It came to the point that in Joseph Smith’s latter years he was thrown in jail and there he and his brother Hiram Smith were shot by a possessed and angry mob. The prophet and his brother sealed their testimony with their lives. The prophet was dead. ~

After this happened there was yet another small apostasy that occurred. There was confusion about what was to be done regarding church leadership. People started gathering in different groups to discuss the issue. The twelve ordained visible apostles even quarreled amongst themselves.  What was to be done? ~

An Apostle or Prophet over the Church of Jesus Christ?

Before the prophet Joseph Smith died he ordained Sidney Rigdon to be a prophet and a seer. In 1841, Rigdon had been ordained by Smith as a "Prophet, Seer and Revelator". During times when Joseph Smith was still alive he received revelations from Heavenly Father about Sidney Rigdon. There were times that Sidney needed to be corrected and humbled by Heavenly Father. Sidney always faithfully humbled himself before God and his prophet, Joseph Smith - and Joseph Smith never took the title of prophet and seer away from Sidney Rigdon. ~

One day after Joseph Smith had been killed one of the twelve apostles named Brigham Young came forth before the people and stated that he believed God had called him to take over leadership of the church. Sidney Rigdon stepped forward and stated that it was in the heart of the prophet Joseph Smith that he, the ordained prophet and seer of God should lead the church. Great arguments arose and Brigham yelled out that he the apostle should lead. Not even all the apostles agreed with Brigham Young. ~

The rest of the saints went into prayer and began to ask of God what to do. Some came out on the side of Brigham Young, indeed many did. Others, a small remnant, came out of the side of Sidney Rigdon. An apostle or prophet over the Church of Jesus Christ? That was the question. The prophets of old tell us that God will always preserve His remnant people. The prophet Isaiah foretold: “And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the Lord, the Holy One if Israel, in truth.” (Isaiah 10:20) ~

So the majority of true saints [a remnant] left with Sidney Rigdon. Please understand that those who sided with Brigham Young still had amongst them the true saints of God and that God through Apostle Brigham Young lead many hundreds of true saints all the way to the land of Utah. The Church of Jesus Christ under Brigham Young’s leadership is still a remnant of the true Church of Christ. The LDS Church still has the authority of the priesthood, still gives the gift of priesthood to worthy men and still has the authority to practice all temple rites including endowments and temple marriages. We serve a merciful God. If it were not for the authority of the restored priesthood they would not be able to do these things. That being said, we must now focus on what Heavenly Father did under the leadership of the prophet Sidney Rigdon. After the visible apostles left with Brigham Young’s group God called Sidney Rigdon to ordain twelve more apostles to protect the Holy Order of the church. Melchizedek priesthood holders make up the Holy Order of God. These twelve apostles were to become known as “the secret apostles”. The majority of their work was to be kept secret for their protection and for the protection of God’s prophet, Sidney Rigdon. ~

The major portion of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was to flourish in Utah and the western states while the smaller remnant was to begin a special work in the eastern states. Under the leadership of Sidney Rigdon the church was taught that after his death and the death of Brigham Young the seat of a “church president” (church prophet) would “stand still” until the Seventh Church Era. Sidney Rigdon was given the true doctrine of the Seven Church Eras, Brigham Young was not. Sidney informed the saints that others would take the seat of presidency after Brigham Young died but that they would not be considered true prophets of the over-all church. They could receive individual prophecies for themselves but not necessarily for the whole church. This is what has been going on in the regular Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to this day. ~

After Prophet Sidney Rigdon died there was no prophet left to oversee the entire Church of Christ. The secret apostles became the protectors of this truth. Whenever one of the secret apostles passed away another one was ordained to take his place and this has been going on all the way up until our present time. Five of the secret apostles do work in a sacred temple and basically never leave from this spot while the other seven continue to travel incognito and do God’s work where needed. Nobody to this day knows who these apostles are. There have been rare cases when at least two of them have appeared to Melchizedek priesthood holders and have given special messages to the Church. The present ministry of the church under the original leadership of Prophet Sidney Rigdon is found in this ministry, the Science Of Christian Thought. ~

The Sixth Church era, the Philadelphian era

In the 1930’s the church of Jesus Christ entered the sixth era of the church. During this time there was a man named Herbert W. Armstrong. Herbert was challenged by his wife who was then attending a Seventh-day Adventist church to prove the Bible false. He began to study scripture intensely. The issue became over just what day was the true Sabbath day, Saturday or Sunday. Herbert searched many different denominations while looking for the truth. Our records show that early on he felt compelled to have some kind of authority in doing so. He studied with Mormon Christians who baptized him and gave him priesthood authority. He did this secretly hoping to gain authority in his search. He searched for more than a year and came to the conclusion that Saturday was in fact the true fourth commandment, the Holy Sabbath Day. ~

Interestingly enough, Herbert Armstrong during his life unknowingly filled one of the seats of the secret twelve apostles. This was all done under the direction of the Holy Spirit and God’s plan. We must come to the conclusion that “…our God is in the heavens: he hath done whatsoever he hath pleased.” (Psalm 115:3) ~

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

Though he never fully accepted the Book of Mormon he did start a Sabbath keeping church which eventually became known as the Worldwide Church of God. He taught that America comprised a portion of original Israel and that America in fact made up the lost tribe of Manasseh. It was his original Book of Mormon studies that compelled him to accept this truth. ~

After his death the Worldwide Church of God went into a miniature “great apostasy” as the church always does through each new transition. Many years later I (Eric W. King) was born on July 14th 1968. At age twelve I began searching the Scriptures. My mother took my sisters and I to the Lutheran church. In my later teen years my family began to attend the Methodist church. I eventually found the remnant of the Worldwide Church of God ministry [Herbert W. Armstrong’s movement] and began to study with them. Long story short I continued to search the scriptures throughout my life and even studied the world religions and at one time made local newspaper headlines. Heavenly Father eventually led me to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where I received the Aronic priesthood. ~

God showed me the doctrine of the Seven Church Eras. I began to be shown that Joseph Smith appeared in the Sardis (5th church era) and that Herbert W. Armstrong appeared in the Philadelphian era (the 6th). Herbert W. Armstrong himself taught that God called him to be a teacher in the Philadelphian era and that the Philadelphian era was in fact the 6th church era. Herbert Armstrong went to his death teaching this. ~

Through the original Worldwide Church of God movement 18 new truth have been given to the Church of Jesus Christ in these last days.

We have entered the final Church Era…the Laodicean

I (Sir Eric William King) was called forth on October 7th 2011 by two of the secret apostles to bring forth this ministry which is ushering in the final Seventh Church Era [the typical-Laodicean era]. Though I had already received the Aronic priesthood through the LDS church it wasn’t until my encounter with two of the sacred and secret apostles that I was given the Melchizedek priesthood authority. I was cleansed in the Waters of Shiloh by the apostles in the modern land of Mormon which is Yosemite National Forest [the small town of Groveland California is also a part of the modern Land of Mormon]. Since this time new truth has been revealed to the Church of Jesus Christ. We are giving the final Seventh Message to the church and to the entire world. It is a great time of humility. ~

Called to be the Seventh Church Era Prophet
(December 12th 2016)

I was given the title; “Seventh Messenger” on October 7th 2011. I was called to be a “revelator” of truth in the Seventh Church Era. I have written many papers regarding new truth and doctrinal issues since this time. I was called to make predictions and give warnings regarding the signs of the times. Since my calling I have written over 500 papers. On the night of December 12th 2016 a very special event occurred. The other night while seated and writing this very paper around twelve midnight two bright lights appeared in the room I was typing in. I turned to face them and they grew in size. Then appeared before me two personages glowing in white light. I could not make out their faces but I could discern their figures. One of them lifted his right hand and spoke. He said: “We have come from the celestial kingdom to call you forth as a prophet of God in this seventh church time. Behold, I am Elijah the prophet.” At this pronouncement I fell to the ground shaking madly. Then the other personage spoke: “Behold, I am, John the apostle. You have been working for the kingdom and now you must take on your full responsibility as prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ in this Seventh Church Time. You have rightly studied and discerned the seven church eras thus you have been lead by the Spirit of God and now called to take on the authority and responsibility of speaking with boldness and carrying this message with grace and humility to the church and to the entire world. You must now without any doubt fully trust the Lord.” After this they both walked through the wall and outside. There they ascended back up into the heavens. After this I prayed for about an hour to Heavenly Father. After a long night it is with all humility that I officially accept this calling at 10:09 am on December 13th, 2016. ~

May my God continue to give me His strength, grace and mercy as I take on this great office. ~

~Prophet Eric William King

Note: Because of this remarkable calling and revelation the Seventh Church Era is sometimes referred to as the “second half” of the “dispensation of the fullness of times” and in that sense “a new dispensation within the fullness of times”. ~

Brief Outline of the Seven Church Eras

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 1829 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. ~

“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. 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. ~

  1. Message to the last day Church and its condition:

    Our churches today are largely in this "lukewarm" condition. There is very little of warm hearted spirituality. There is much going on in them, but it is largely mechanical and of a social character. Committees, societies, and clubs are multiplied, but there is an absence of "spiritual heat." Revival meetings are held, but instead of waiting on the Lord for power, evangelists and paid singers are hired and soul winning is made a business.

    The cause of this "lukewarmness" is the same as that of the Church of Laodicea Self-Deception.
