The Worldwide Church of God, under the dedicated biblical management of Herbert W. Armstrong, published the Plain Truth magazine as an excellent way to help preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. The Plain Truth blog hopes to help share world news in light of biblical prophecy in that same holy spirit.
God is with the Jews!
concerning the love affair of Christians with the modern-day state of Israel
... consider that Israel has hundreds of nukes and is ready to use them if she is threatened ...
Just how many of your righteous Jew friends believe in Jesus?
Herbert Armstrong was a godly man but he never advocated subservience to the modern state of Israel like you are implying.
you are of the John Hagee type.
And stop claiming that anyone who criticizes Israel is a "Jew Hater"
Excerpts fromby Ezra HaLevi
"Jerusalem should not be up for negotiation," Chief Sephardi Rabbi Shlomo Amar declared, joining a similar statement a day earlier made by his Ashkenazi counterpart Rabbi Yonah Metzger. "The Temple Mount is the heart and soul of the Land of Israel and there is no Jewish unity without the unity of the Land of Israel."
Jerusalem Without the Holy Temple is Not Jerusalem
Rabbi Yisrael Ariel, the founder of the Temple Institute in Jerusalem spoke about his experience being part of Motta Gur’s Paratrooper unit that liberated the Temple Mount. "Once we liberated the area, I saw the Prime Minister, the president and all sorts of dignitaries entering the Temple Mount. But where did they head? To the Kotel [the Western Wall of the Temple Mount –ed.]. We arrive at the Temple Mount after 2,000 years – and where did we go? And the Torah world was fully complicit in this – it was not just Moshe Dayan and the government. Humiliation. Complete humiliation.
"There is no Jerusalem without the Holy Temple," he proclaimed. "I have been sitting here for two hours and heave heard about housing and demographics and even the Jewish Quarter – but nothing about the Holy Temple, which is inextricably the whole essence of Jerusalem. It is impossible to speak about Jerusalem without mentioning even once the Holy Temple.
"Every generation at least implemented to the best of their ability what they prayed for. Our generation simply runs away from it. We talk about the Temple Mount, but not building the Holy Temple."
**********Humiliation: secular Jewish leaders stop at a wall rather than continue to go up to the Temple Mount.
God Doesn't Ordain Women Preachers!
I just read an abominable article written by a proud and stubborn woman attempting to justify rebellious women doing what only God has ordained men to do: preach from the pulpit as ordained ministers.
You're NOT Jewish, WHAT made you think you could become an Israeli citizen??
Would we want to elect somebody named Hitler? Stalin? Who would have ever thought somebody with a name like Obama would get this far after 9/11 - sounding so much like OSAMA?
As I wrote, even IF Senator Obama were qualified to be president, which he clearly is not, Barack Hussein Obama is not one from our White Israelite brethren that Scripture calls for in electing our leaders:
Deuteronomy 17 15 ...you shall surely set a king over you whom the LORD your God chooses; one from among your brethren you shall set as king over you; you may not set a foreigner over you, who is not your brother.
These are my beliefs, regardless of whether or not others are willing to understand or approve.
Isn't it strange folks don't care that many blacks are now jumping on the Obamination bandwagon, they understand it when blacks vote for blacks, but when a white person dares to state they will only vote for a fellow white person, one of our brothers or sisters, behold the hypocritical hue and cry!!!
I wouldn't vote for Obamination for many reasons, his being a Gentile is only part of many factors I consider. Obamination would wage war against the preborn and want the government (working people taxed to death) to pay for "poor people" to have abortions (code word for blacks).
Ron Weinland is a FALSE PROPHET and illegitimately claims to be one of the Two Witnesses. I read his book, trying to give him the benefit of the doubt (not about his wild claims to be one of the two witnesses but just for basic biblical knowledge every minister in God's Church ought to have and share), and it's nothing but truth mixed with error, just like the pagans have always done.
Ron Weinland goes off the deep end, however, with his vain attempt to spiritualize everything away that disagrees with his perverted interpretation of things, and while trying to act like an expert on Hebrew and Passover proves just the opposite.
Weren't we warned about such false prophets out to steal a following for themselves? How deaf, dumb and blind can those folks be to just sit there and not at least ask, in all sincerity, "WHY do you think you're one of the Two Witnesses?" Not just taking his word for it like good cult members. And seeing the errors in his work (it's not the Work of God), folks ought to flee such Babylon and avoid it like the plague. But then brethren in the Philadelphia Church of God continue to let Gerald Flurry accumulate lofty titles to himself...
May such folks REPENT and come back down to Earth and support God's Work that prepares to return to Jerusalem where it all began.
Rather ironic, since Jews played such a pivitol role in bringing the ANC thugs into power.
Yes, it's disgusting how a disproportionate amount of LIBERAL and godless and self-righteous Jews were instrumental in the destruction of South Africa by dismantling apartheid (where every race and religion prospered compared to now), just like the same sick souls (with their British-Israelite, self-hating white, counterparts) are bent on the destruction of our White Israelite countries and the Jewish Homeland too.
Jews should follow Judaism to Israel, plain and simple, and end their self-imposed exile. Yet they'll blather, "NEXT year in Jerusalem.." - it's always NEXT year, isn't it?
God has everything to do with Zionism!
Zionism has nothing to do with God ....
It is a purely political movement invented and used by men to achieve a political goal i.e., the establishment of modern Israel.
It has nothing to do with fulfilling prophecy ...
the secular (atheistic) Jews made a deal with the religious Jews .... let us run the affairs of state and we will allow you to run the religious part.
God does not operate like this ... read your Bible.
Yitzhak Rabin: I met Yitzhak Rabin in the Israeli Parliament in 1982 during Hanukkah. I was able to talk with him briefly and mention I was associated with Ambassador College in Pasadena, California. That was a tactful way of saying I'm a Christian since Rabin had met and received a gift of Steuben crystal from Herbert W. Armstrong of the Worldwide Church of God.
I was a volunteer at Kibbutz Ramat Yohanan at the time, in Northern Israel near Haifa. Rabin informed me that he had lived there for over a year in the late '50s and inquired about various individuals.

The United States and Britain in Bible Prophecy
© 2001 United Church of God, an International Association
he prosperity of Britain and the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries fueled the popular belief that the British and American peoples are in fact the descendants of the lost 10 tribes. This movement came to be popularly known as British-Israelism.
In the United States, where the idea of "manifest destiny"-the belief that it was the nation's destiny to expand from shore to shore-was already firmly entrenched, advocates of British-Israelism promoted the biblical explanation for the nation's unexplained growth and prosperity. Britain and the United States, they concluded, were recipients of the unconditional birthright of Joseph.
In recent times some have associated British-Israelism with the modern negative connotations of imperialism. Critics even allege that those who embraced this reasoning were only seeking a salve for their conscience to justify their imperialist tendencies. Such accusation, however, is simply not in keeping with the thinking of the 19th century. Those who project today's political sensitivities on a past audience that viewed the world far differently are incorrect and unfair in their assessment.
In the mid-19th century British subjects did not perceive imperialism as negative. They viewed it as a magnanimous gesture-that they were extending the blessings that had made their nation great to less-fortunate peoples around the globe. Indeed the British Empire provided many blessings to the peoples who became part of the empire.
Another criticism-this one accurate-aimed at British-Israel advocates is that some of their proponents incorporated racism into their beliefs. Prejudicial racist views have tarnished their reasoning, thus discrediting the historical aspects of their teachings.
This is both regrettable and biblically unacceptable. Racial bigotry is most definitely not what the Bible teaches. God is not the author of such a point of view. He loves all people and commands us to do the same. The central issues we need to consider are whether many of the descendants of the 10 tribes of Israel reside in the British-descended nations today and, if so, what God expects of them.
Focusing on the biblical promises, some scholars have undertaken extensive research to advance the knowledge that God's promised blessings to Abraham's descendants have largely been fulfilled in the British and American peoples. Although many have contributed to the basic research, here are a few people who have made significant contributions to the advancement of this area of study.
John Wilson, Anglican layman from Cheltenham, England, published Our Israelitish Origin in 1840. This work was the first full-blown thesis connecting the Anglo-Saxons to ancient Israel. Wilson drew on the best of contemporary scholarship and methodology. He made particular use of the work of Sharon Turner (1768-1847), a monumental figure in British historiography whose multivolume work, The History of the Anglo-Saxons, traces the Anglo-Saxons back through Europe to the Balkan countries and ultimately to the Crimea and Caucasus Mountains-exactly what we would expect according to 2 Kings 17:6 and 1 Chronicles 5:26.
