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

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. ~

~May you become sealed with all Truth.

~Sir Eric W. King

SOCT has continued to teach the fact that God’s church is in the Seventh Church Era. In this era we have been given new light, New Understandings. This seventh church era is broken into two parts. We are currently in the typical-Laodicean era and this will climax into the anti-typical Laodicean era which is the Great Tribulation. In our current first phase we are entering what is prophetically referred as “Jacobs time of trouble”. Jacob’s time of trouble has to do with wars, heavenly signs, extreme weather changes, earthquakes, tsunamis, terrorist attacks, violence, economic turmoil and political disruption. ~

As we go into the year 2017 these types of events will escalate. ~

We understand that Heavenly Father used a man named Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong (1892-1986) to introduce some of the new understandings. Interestingly enough Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong never accepted the Book of Mormon but when he was younger and studying other church denominations he had received the priesthood. This gave him the authority to be a part of God’s great plan in these last days. We talk about the fact that 18 new truths have been restored in this seventh church time and were introduced through Mr. Armstrong’s ministry. ~

The prophet Joseph Smith lived during the 5th era of the church, that of Sardis, while Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong lived during the Philadelphian era of the church [the 6th era]. After his death the church wondered and sought direction. The Philadelphian era so far was the shortest era of the church only covering about 90 years. In the year 2011 a remnant of this ministry found the teachings of Sir Eric W. King who instructed them that they were to in fact accept the Book of Mormon along with the 18 revealed truths of Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong’s ministry. Eric informed them that the Christian Church was getting ready to enter its final age…the Seventh Church era. It entered this time officially on October 7th 2011. This revelation was revealed to Eric while walking on a forest trail in the Modern Land of Mormon [Yosemite National Forest]. This trail was alongside a river which contained the Waters of Shiloh. New revelation informs us that all melting snow and rain water that flows from the mountains of Yosemite National Forest is called “the waters of Shiloh” and that Yosemite and the small town of Groveland California are in fact the modern Land of Mormon. ~

In this SOCT paper we would like to briefly list the 18 restored truths to the Mormon Church. Here they are: ~

Eighteen Restored Truths

1-The true Sabbath day has been restored to the Mormon Church. Even though the saints of the past did not have this knowledge God honored His children and knew that only in the seventh church era would they get this truth. God has waited to restore certain truths because He tests His people to see if they are still listening in each church age. ~

2-The truth about the Holy Spirit. That the Holy Spirit is not a “person” in the sense that fallen denominations teach. The Holy Spirit does not have a body like the Father and the Son and that a person must be impregnated with a portion of this Spirit to become a begotten child of GodAlso that the “laying on of hands” need not always occur in the 6th and 7th church time to receive the Holy Spirit because in these last era’s God is pouring out His Spirit to all true seekers. ~

3-The truth about death. To us the dead are asleep but to them they are literally in our future. To us they have no consciousness existing but in fact they do [but some can return and appear to us as angels and to do this they must come back to their past]. Their spirits are experiencing the spirit world, either “Paradise” or “Prison”. The fact that we have an identity seed that returns to God who gave it and will receive a new body at the resurrection. So to us the dead are “not living but asleep” but from their perspective and reality they are alive in our future. ~

4-The fact that our Human spirit must unite with God’s Spirit to truly escape death and experience eternal life. Not all Humans have the Spirit of God and have disconnected themselves from God and truly cannot be considered His children until they accept a portion of His Spirit and that all though animals have spirits they do not have the “image of God” in their spirits like Humans have. Latter-day revelation has revealed that our animals will be with us in the Kingdom of God if we ask with a sincere heart in prayer to Heavenly Father. ~

5-God’s Holy Feast Times and their meanings have been restored through the ministry of Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong and again revised in this seventh church time by Sir Eric William King as the Holy Spirit lead. There are seven special seasons which when kept draw us closer to Heavenly Father. We keep these in addition to the regular Christian holidays such as Christmas and Easter. ~

6-The identity of modern Israel. The fact that Great Briton comprises the tribe of Ephraim and that America comprises the tribe of Manasseh. It is true that when Ephraim is spoken of it sometimes includes Manasseh. The “stick of Ephraim” spoken of by the prophet Ezekiel also includes the record of Manasseh [America]. ~

7-The truth that all prophecy can only be understood if you know that we [America & Great Briton] are the Israelites. The Book of Mormon sheds much light on this subject due to the fact that the Book of Mormon is a record of scripture documenting what occurred on the American continent in ancient times. ~

8-The fact that right now Christians that have God’s Spirit living and working in them are “begotten children” of God and not yet truly “born again”. All true Christian are currently growing in the “womb of the Mother” (symbolically the Mother being the Church of God and the “wife of Christ”). Sometimes we refer to us as being “born of the Spirit” and or “born again” but technically we will not be born into our new bodies until the resurrection of our bodies when we receive our glorified bodies. ~

9-The fact that all true saints (Christians) will be teachers during the Millennial rule of Jesus Christ and that many of the great patriarchs and matriarchs will hold leading positions on the New Earth. The fact that King David of old will be a great ruler during the Millennial Kingdom. ~

10-The fact that those who come and have come into the Christian Church during each of its seven eras are the ones called to teach during the millennial rule and it is these spirits and these spirits alone which make up the “elect of God”. The main purpose of the Church is to call out only the elect of God. ~

11-The fact that Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong was (is) one of the Secret Twelve apostles even though he did not accept the Book of Mormon. Heavenly Father can use whom he wishes to humble and teach His church. He was called to be an apostle during the 6th church era and that we should accept him and the work [18 new truths] which God called him to do in this time. ~

12-The fact that during the 6th and 7th church era the title of the church should be the “Worldwide Church of God” seeing that the name of Jesus and many of his teachings have gone worldwide. Even though the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true Church of Christ and is still distributing the Holy Priesthood and practicing legitimate Temple Rites we must recognize just where the Church of God is in prophetic history by using its rightful title, the Worldwide Church of God. ~

13~The Church of God will be given the name Hephzibah during the Millennial Reign of Jesus Christ on the New Earth. It is important to understand why this is and the meaning of Hephzibah. ~

14~We should try and keep the health laws in addition to the Mormon “Words of Wisdom”. We should try and eat only clean meats. We should try to not eat pork and other unclean meats. We will not lose our place in the Kingdom of God if we eat all meats in moderation. Eating unclean meats is not necessarily a sin against God as much as it is a sin against our bodies which are “tabernacles of God”. ~

15~A true Christian man or woman may remarry only if their partner dies. The widowed Christian is the only one free to remarry even if they have been eternally bound in the Temple of God. If one was married and divorced before true Christian conversion he or she may marry but if one was married in the true Church of God and has gone through a divorce they may not remarry unless their husband or wife dies. This is the eternal law of God regarding marriage. ~

16~The fact of the pre-Adamic earth. The earth was created millions of years ago and destroyed during the first Luciferian rebellion. The book of Genesis actual is an account of the earth refurbished. There were Human beings and other creatures on earth prior to the Genesis account. Adam and Eve were actually the 10th race created for a special purpose and were commanded to “replenish” the earth. You can read about this in the famous SOCT paper titled: “The Story of Our Planet”.  We are now living in what is called “the Second Earth Age”. ~

17~God’s government is activated on earth in His church. Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors (bishops) and Teachers. This is called “the five-fold ministry”. It is actually the apostles who come first in order and are to test whatever a prophet says by and through the Word of God and prayer. In this sense the church of God is the kingdom on earth. We are a “kingdom in waiting” for the return of our King. ~

18~The evilest of spirits will be dissolved as if they never existed. All spirit beings are eternal accept certain ones who will be so annihilated that it will be as if they never existed. We do not fully understand this process but never the less it is certain and true. Those other evil souls will remain in spiritual darkness for eternity while some of them shall be completely destroyed forever. ~
Will you receive New Light?

These are the 18 truths which have been restored to the Church of Jesus Christ in these Latter-days through the Seventh Message which has been given and is being given to the saints of God in this final seventh era of the True Church. We hope these new truths give you even a greater understanding of Heavenly Father’s plan for his children. Heavenly Father cares deeply for his children and all of His commandments are given for our healthprotection and sacred relationship with Him. May you ask of God if these are indeed truths…”And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things.” (Moroni 10:4, 5)

~May ye gain peace profound.
