The web site links provided in this post below are like chapters in a book. They are sequentially related and should be read beginning with Part One through Part Seven and then the final essay titled “Africa the Third Time.”
It was at the Lakeland, Florida minister's meeting in the year 2004 that I shared these thoughts with the church of God ministers who met at the Lakeland campgrounds each year. Since my presentation to the ministry included the concept of a great revival of Christianity prior to the second coming of Jesus Christ; my position was labeled a “Babylonian message.” I was admonished to not preach this message anywhere or at any time. I accepted that council with the exception that I would take my liberty to share these thoughts with other ministers and with the congregation over which I was the pastor in Knoxville, Tennessee. I agreed to not teach this message from the pulpits of other congregations. Certain individuals took advantage of this difference of belief between myself and other ministers, then added a few of their own false accusations and all of this evolved into the move of the congregation asking for my resignation from being pastor of the congregation in Knoxville.
I have shared these thoughts with many ministers, including many in Africa. I have never heard the first effort to disprove my thesis by the means of scriptural opposition. Thirteen years ago, the ministry told me that the next significant event in the future of the church is the imminent return of Jesus Christ. They held the position that there would not be any great revival of Christianity before the end of the world. I was told that if I did not believe Jesus could return that very day, then I was a Babylonian preacher. I held that Jesus would not return until all the prophecies of the Bible were fulfilled. One minister told me that he knew that all the prophecies of the Bible had already been fulfilled. I could not accept that position. Therefore, in their opinion, I am a Babylonian preacher and not qualified to minister in any of their meetings. Their rejection and condemnation of me resulted in many factions and divisions which continue to hurt the universal body of Christ.
I continue to stand by the interpretation of Scripture which present the following portrait of end time events. Please read these postings prayerfully and seek that wisdom and understanding which can only come through divine revelation. May the Holy Spirit lead you and bless you.
