REVELATION WHY THE MYSTERY?Thursday, July 1, 2010 4:22 PM From: "AndreDelage" To: Realteam1999@sbcglobal.net
I read with great interest your commentary on “REVELATION WHY THE MYSTERY?” I wrote a commentary in my blog that pertain the subject of revealed mystery title “God Reveal to those who love Him”. I was a member of the WWCG for 10 years. I experience something very special, “Grace plus Works”. There is really nothing wrong observing the Sabbath and the feast days. The early church, Christians gentile were meeting on the first day of the week, Sunday, and the Christians Jews were meeting on Saturday. To live as a Jews gave me a very special perspective and appreciation for God chosen people Israel . WWCG did serve it purpose. In Philippians 1:18 Paul explain that even in pretence, Christ is preached. The WWCG folly and collapse was not due to false teaching of the “Replacement Theology” neither the error in predicting Christ second coming. Attendance was in the increase, The Plain Truth publication had reached a great popularity. After Mr. Armstrong death, a change in leadership to Mr. Tkach introduced a major doctrinal change. The Holy Spirit was no longer considered as God. The church leadership rejected the divinity of the Holy Spirit. That is where everything went spiralling down.
Today I do understand that those feasts and Sabbath were a shadow of things to come. I have learned that the Sabbath was an intended rest, restored at Jesus resurrection. I wrote a commentary on the subject title “Economic Crisis: As Christians, what are we to do? Answer: "REST" ”.
I have wonderful memory of genuine fellowship, there was many who were sincere and had accepted Jesus as the One that God had sent. As of today, there is many denominations where true Christian exist. Remember the parable of the wheat and the tare.
