Elder Walker a servant of our Lord Jesus Christ, to the saints and the elect according to the foreknowledge of God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to His abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a much lively hope by the ascending of Jesus Christ into the heavens.

And now and always, may grace, mercy and the love of Jesus be upon all of us as we are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. A time when, according to the promise, at the sound of the last trump wherein, we shall be changed and together with those who sleep will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air and will forever be with Him; A time when Our God in the visible image of Jesus Christ shall reign with His saints, who have through the wrath of God upon Satan repossessed that dominion over all the living world given up by Adam at the time of the transgression in the Garden of Eden; A reign lasting for a thousand years and where the Saints of God will complete final preparations for their final tasks, here, on this earth. And then, at last, in this last time, when the Church of God will lastly show itself ready and certified to accept the honor bestowed upon it as the pure and holy bride of Christ; having completed all the requirements and finished all of the works according to the covenant, and having fought a good fight and having kept the faith; now that it is finished will have the privilege of walking in the midst of the Paradise of God. A paradise where the saints can never be ashamed, where tears are no more, where pain can never return and where His saints will serve Him in all gladness; now being able to take a fruit from the ‘Tree of Life’ and freely eat it that they may live for ever and ever, becoming eternal even as the Eternal God.

Beloved, are you ready for this last time that is now upon us? Are you ready for the great change from mortal to immortal? Are you ready to meet Him in the air, Are you ready to reign with Him? And finally are your ready for that great marriage that shall command all of Heaven? Are you ready to finalize the covenant agreement with God Almighty, which began in Genesis 3:15 and will end at Revelation 22:14. Yes, are you ready and can you be found worthy to enter into the final phase of a divine relationship with God, which has rewards that can be expressed in terms of eternal life within the city of God. When the church today is examined with consideration given for all of these ‘are you ready questions’ it is found to be wanting and in a not ready condition for its homegoing. Therefore, that you might be informed; that this last time shall not come upon you as unaware; I, Elder Walker, find it needful to write unto you and to remind you of this last time and of those things which must soon come to past to prepare the church for that great and notable day of the Lord; when you shall be accounted worthy to stand before Him and escape His wrath. A wrath which shall be encountered by all those upon the whole earth who are not found walking according to the righteousness found in Jesus Christ, as there is not another way to escape, for there is given no other name under heaven among men whereby we shall be saved. No, not another name with a standard of righteousness in all the universe. All should praise it and glorify it in their hearts and mind, giving thanks to God always for because of his unconditional love, it is manifested unto you.

Brethren, be not deceived and let no man persuade you otherwise that through this name of Jesus Christ is preached to the world the forgiveness of sin and through Him, all that believe are justified from all things that they cannot find through any other name. His perfect blood cleans us from all sin, even those we inherited by being the seed of Adam. Yes, it is only through this name and no other that authority can be granted to each as heirs of salvation, whereas they are allowed to in that day, walk in the midst of the paradise of God. It is through this Holy Name that revelation is given us, the Apostles of Jesus Christ, of the ‘Great Coming Together’ of God’s Elect, from the North and from the South and from the West and from the East. Coming together from all walks of life, all nations and all tongues, and all kindreds; from the rich and the poor; from the great and the small; from the unbelievers and from the believers; and from the unsaved as well as the saved. These be they, that are revealed to us, who shall come together under the umbrella of the Universal Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ established on the day of Pentecost according to the words preached by Peter and the rest of the Apostles and continued thereafter, according to the Apostles Doctrine; for the promise is unto you and your children, them that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. Yes it is so stated that God:… hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; and have given to all one thing by which they must be saved and the one thing given to mankind for his salvation is universal in precepts and according to the teachings of the Holy Apostles of Jesus Christ, the true God and Father of all creation.

Yes, we present Apostolic contenders, who are of the household of faith, according to the election of grace, and as a remnant of God’s elect shall along with all the other remnants will be caught up together with them that are asleep to meet the Lord Jesus in the air; and will forever be with him. Now if you have always dreamed of making this trip alone or just with your own individual church organization, then you are about as wrong as you will ever be in this world. What I am trying to say to you as an Apostolic Minister is that you and your individual church are not the only ones living according to God’s one plan of salvation and you want be the only ones to meet the Lord in the air. No sir, that is just not the case and justification can never be found for such a wild belief in the Holy Scriptures. It does not matter what you have been taught by the pastor, or bishop or apostle heading your church and it does not matter how strong you believe it to be so you are walking in the isles of darkness and oh, how great is that darkness.

In as much, as you are walking in this great darkness you are also walking according to the precepts of Satan and the ministers are preaching and teaching according to the precepts of Satan; whose goal in your life is to get you to believe a lie to the extent that you will never truly prepare yourself according to the true oracles of God. And with this failure you can never make your calling and election sure; that is you can never be consoled by the spirit of your name being written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

Now, this gets us to the basics of this Inquiry and to the very reason the many complaints of the Saint, caused it to be written. This self conceitedness; this self righteousness; this self judgmental and this sagaciousness that is now characterizing the saints of the apostolic churches and their leaders Have caused the ‘Big Bang’ theory to become a reality in the Apostolic Church in our generation. The Apostolic Churches, big, little, great or small are all headed at light speed away from that nucleus or the epic center established on the day of Pentecost, in a direction that is uncharted and unauthorized into the vastness of the darkness of space under the dominion of Satan.

Do you not know that this centralization is the force that asserted itself on the day of Pentecost through the preaching of Peter and the rest of the Apostles . Do you not know that the church of Jesus Christ only exist where this centralized authority is established and retained? As the key elements that enabled the New Testament Church to be established and to allow it to prevail against the gates of hell, were all the works of this one man, Jesus Christ and they were His Death, His Burial, and His Resurrection. Now where these three events are established as the center or nucleus the church is firmly established and is complete without the inclusion of any other doctrine and/or preaching of any other gospel and when the travel is wayward from this centralized establishment then we are diverse from all things common and are no longer contending for the faith once delivered to the saints. Therefore and without controversy the church shall always retain the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ at the center of its doctrine and the saints shall accept no other; nor shall the ministers of the church present any other. Now, herein lies the problem for most of the Apostolic Churches in the world today; a problem of urgency and a problem of concern among the many saints of God who are demanding that the discrepancies within the church be corrected and have the one and only true doctrine of the true church restituted as it was Christ Himself who gave his life for the church he so loved; that He could present to himself a glorious church having neither spot or wrinkle but one that would be holy and without blemish.

Now observe; as God’s elect must enter into the Universal Apostolic Church to be saved, then this entry must be into the true church established at Pentecost and not into a church or church faction that are moved away from center position where Jesus Christ to the church is the same yesterday, today and forever. For they must enter into the body of Jesus Christ according to His righteousness to obtain the salvation accorded to them; even before the foundations of the world were lain. How then can they enter into the body that they cannot identify; how then can they enter into a body that is no longer center to the death, burial and resserection of Jesus Christ; and how can they enter into a body that is not the glorious body, having no spots and having nor wrinkles. What then are those that are God’s Elect suppose to do? Are they to be ignored? Are they to be foresaken? Are they to be denied so great plan of salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard [him]; God forbid! That any of His elect should not walk along the Crystal River flowing from the midst of the Throne of God cannot be acceptable nor can it be the truth of God. Then, they that are God’s elect; cannot they see the Light in the

Apostolic Church and walk therein and seal their salvation? Yes, they should, everyone one of them, but, where can this knowledge be found and where is the place of understanding; as Satan has used deceiving spirits to fill the apostolic churches with great misinformation making it very difficult and next to impossible for those that are without the gate to believe on the name of Jesus Christ and be saved. Yes, I am saying unto you, my brethren, The Apostolic Doctrine Churches have become so fragmented and the truth so illusive until now it is a stumbling block and a sea of confusion to many of those who wish to be saved

According to the same commandments given by Peter and the rest of the Apostles on the day of Pentecost and according to that continuation, steadfastly in the Apostles’ Doctrine.

Even as disobedience to God and His word in the wilderness, caused the gospel which was afore given to them, to be of no profit; this same disobedience to the word of God in this age is causing many members and ministers of the church to not profit likewise. And, Israel the OT Church as: (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. So is it with the NT Church in this age; that old Satan has found his way into the church and given many of its ministers and members the spirit of slumber and eyes that cannot see and ears, which cannot hear that they should move away from the doctrine of the true church as it was established on the day of Pentecost. What then shall we say; that the fragmented precepts which are no longer operating in the spirit of Pentecost; the so called apostolic church(es) are a stumbling block to God’s elect and are not participating in any platform that they are able to come to God and accept their salvation as all must do and do it quickly in these last times. Yes, the truth of God is not being propagated in many of the Apostolic Organizations that are doing business today. They are useless organizations who are true to what has been written: Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof; whose end shall be according to the wrath of God. Let this remain true in your minds: Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For, regardless of opinions and positions of those in high places. Even the leaders of the many apostolic organizations, order will be established and the precepts of Pentecost shall be restored to the true apostolic church under an universal application by the authority of Jesus Christ.

Now, Satan’s foothold in the church is lack of knowledge and patient by the young ministers of the gospel who had rather not wait on God to make things happen according to his divine purpose and by His expressed will; as all things are manifested through His own counsel and not after the determinations of men. No, not men nor even angels have ever received a charge from God to go contrary to His infallible word and the salvation gospel delivered to the world by Jesus Christ. But yet, in spite of all the evidence stacked against them since before the world began; these young men have thrown all caution to the wind and have gone out on their own or with improper teaching to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to the church. God has not spoken to most of them and yet they proclaim what thus saith the Lord. And God have not given to them words for the edifying of the church and yet they forecast and engage in prophecy from the rising of the sun in the morning to the going down of the sun in the evening. For if God had called them; then they would have waited on the Lord for His words and revelations to turn the Spiritual Israel from their sins and transgressions. Then they do not have patient to wait on the Lord to build the congregation through the hearing of His words and the keeping of His laws and therefore they lie in wait for those which can be gainsaid; those that can be beguiled and those that can be led to the slaughter by their smooth dialog and unscriptural presentations of another gospel. And therefore when they stand in fear of loosing any of those who are occupying their pews; they make a pack with Satan and cease not to bring riling acquisitions against the true men of God and the denial of the gospel of God and its true salvation as it was preached by Peter and the rest of the apostles on the day of Pentecost. They have not learned to preach Jesus Christ and Him crucified. They cannot preach and cause devout men of God to become pricked in their hearts. No, they cannot preach God’s true word with the power and authority given the real men of God. They can only manifest their own rendition of a gospel which is not according to the word and perfect will of the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.

Please observe; the Elders of the church are of no exception, in that they too are ministering outside of the boundaries established by the New Testament Church at Jerusalem on Pentecost. The Elders and/or Bishops and so called Apostles in charge of the Apostolic Organizations and many of the churches are knowingly and deliberately falsifying the gospel of Jesus Christ proclaiming and teaching that there are alternatives to those basic and fundamental precepts that must without exception and compromise be maintained in the true apostolic church regardless of age or time or place. These elder ministers who would have you to believe that they are pillows of the faith who have been set forth in the church by our Lord Jesus Christ, are nothing more than raving wolves preying upon the saints of God without mercy or remorse; and walking after the sinful rudiments of this world and not according to the spirit of God. By speaking the truth after the tradition of men and after the fashion of the world, they manifest themselves to be never no more but perhaps less than clouds without rain and wells without water, having a form of godliness but are in absolute denial of the power thereof. Because of their deeds and proclamations being laced with the ingredients of pride and lust for power which can never come to them; they without a doubt crucify the Son of God afresh and put him to an open shame in the face of the holy saints of God and His eternal angels having watch over them. It is without a doubt that the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ is to them lost and in their pursuit to satisfy their own ambitions, it can never be found; as the ruler of this world have blinded their minds with selfness, pride and inequity, blocking the light of the glorious gospel that could shine into their hearts and minds and save them from the wrath of God which soon, is to be poured out upon all those who are attempting to prevail against the true church of God and the doctrine of Jesus Christ.

God’s word have been spoken and it shall not return unto him void nor will He allow any of it to pass away until it be fulfilled. God’s word shall accomplish that which is according to His purpose; that which has been determined from the beginning by the counsel of His own will. And God’s will is the delivery a glorious church having neither spot nor wrinkle; but a church that is Holy and without blame; fit to be the Bride of Jesus Christ. Now, those ministers of the gospel who say they are speaking God’s word, when He has not spoken to them; those ministers who say they are teaching God’s word when he has not instructed them; those ministers who have set themselves in high places as rulers over the church, when He has not chosen them; and finally those ministers who are adding to and taking away from God’s immutable processes, altering the Holy Word and have been found liars shall not escape punishment for the damage they are doing to the Church of God. No, they shall not escape in this world nor in the world to come. Beginning this day God is no longer allowing evil hearted men and women who are pawns of the ‘ruler of darkness’ to inflict punishment and do damage to the true church. No sir, the time has arrived when the church should begin to prepare itself for the final onslaught from Satan. The time is come when the Saints of God must reclaim the church back to that glorious institution that is: …….built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner [stone]; The time is come when Satan and his angels of darkness are persona nongrata and the saints of God no longer are going to stand by and accept the doctrine of Satan in this, the holy church of Jesus Christ. As it is evidence the church cannot be restored with most of the current leadership in place. It is further evidence that the beam and the mote that is in the eyes of the current leadership cannot be removed, as they have no desire to do so in their hearts. Therefore because of the inequity and disobedience the New Testament Church is become subject to the conditions that prevailed by God’s hand of justice upon the Old Testament Church during the days in the wilderness. Just as they all were destroyed in the wilderness for refusing to hear and obey God’s divine and holy word and whereas only two made it into the ‘Promised Land’ and as it was in those days of provocation, so shall it be in these last times, where the provocation has reached into the heavens and the saints of God are crying out for deliverance, justification and freedom from the rulers of darkness which have ascended upon the apostolic church of Jesus Christ. In the church today; God is ready to raise up a new nation of ministers, who will not be ashamed of the gospel of God and who, with power and authority given them by Jesus Christ, will lead the church on into the ‘Promise Land’. Praise God and Glory to His name of Jesus! As we head down the narrow road to final victory the true saints of God are raising the flag, demanding that the voice being heard be replaced with the voice of the Good Shepherd; for this is the voice that they do know and other voices they will not follow. According to the reports totaling into the 1000’s the leadership of most church organizations are not capable of getting the job done. That is they are not leading the church in the correct direction it should be headed. The true church must move forward toward that day, in the same direction that it used to propel itself from Pentecost and during the early days of the Apostles, into a body of believers who had all things common and desire to continue steadfastly in the Apostles’ Doctrine. Anything less that this is not acceptable to the true saints of God who in all things are being led and guided by It. Nevertheless I will tell you the truth; the church as it is the body of Christ and envelopes all those that believe and keep His word, cannot continue in any direction, unless it is a direction which will render it holy and without blame, having no spots and having no wrinkles, and shall be recognized as ‘glorious’. Therefore it is expedient for many of the church leaders at this time, to wait on the anointing of God and pray for knowledge and revelation of God’s word and to seek regeneration of the soul; that they may be found worthy of leading the people of God. Or else they should step aside and allow those who can to lead the church. For they are sure to be found in contempt of the doctrine of Jesus Christ and God Almighty is sure to cast they aside as He in these last times gives power and authority to His new anointed ministers of the Gospel. Men of God who will get the job done; who will teach and preach the true word of God and who will, with the word of God drive Satan and his dark angels out of ……..the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

The church, at the least and as a prerequisite must have ministers in its leadership who will tell the truth of God And are not conformed to this world: but are transformed by the renewing of their mind, that they may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. This ministry will God set in the church for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ. This God will do for the church that it might be taught the correct doctrine and not a doctrine that is after the commandments of men, which shall perish with the users as they do not convey the perfect will of the Father.

Brethren, be not deceived, God’s elect shall be saved in that day when the secretes of the hearts of men will be judged by the gospel which was preach by Peter and the rest of the apostles on the day of Pentecost and which was afore preached unto Abraham; establishing the covenant by which all the nations in the earth could believe and become a part of ‘The Spiritual Israel’. I write this epistle to comfort you that your salvation shall stand upon the promise of God and that you be not weary in doing good and at being a peculiar people. For it is truly written that if you sow, you also shall reap. Let no man steal your crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous Judge shall give unto you at that day and not just to you only; but unto all of them also that love His appearing. Henceforth, continue in the Lord and let not those who would entice and seduce you with the things of the world have success. Nor, let them not persuade you with the doctrines of man; nor let your faith rest in the confidence of man, who not only will deceive you, but will also attempt to move you from where you stand in Christ.

Be it known unto you; these things, namely the pride of life and the lust of the flesh, have caused the church to arrive at the predicament spoken of by our Lord Jesus Christ; where as the church in the last time is portrayed as the seven churches of Asia Minor; known and described by many as the ‘church of the ages’. Meaning that the church is eternal, everlasting and has existed since the world began. ‘Ages' taken from the Greek word, aionios {ahee-o’-nee-os} Without beginning or end, that which always has been and always will be. In as much as the church is built upon that ‘rock’ and that rock was the Christ; then the church shall always stand and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it; for it is the body of Christ, having no beginning and having no ending; abiding continually and forever after the order of the eternal Godhead. While it may at the last time be in danger of being shaken; it shall never at any time be in danger of being destroyed. For it will try those Apostles and Pastors who are not of Christ and are without his calling, to find them liars and imposters, revealing that they are the agents of Satan set in the church to do damage to the saints of God

The Universal Church described as the seven churches of Asia Minor depicts the conditions which are prevailing in this last time. It shows the damage inflicted by man upon the church by incorporating his worldly doctrines and lust that is present in the flesh. We are warned by Christ of all the things which must be corrected while there is still time; as He is going to come quickly and His reward being with Him. Even though he knows all the works of the saints and the righteous; He also knows all of their short comings and the errors of their ways and that they are not keeping the commandments of the Lord God. Yet, Christ, even this present day through the revelation given to John is showing unconditional love for all the brethren; not willing that any should perish but that all men should come to repentance and accept the Lord Jesus as their Savior. Even the works of ungodliness committed by those in the church and by the church pastors and teachers, is he willing to give this last time to them that they might be saved from the wrath of God and eternal destruction.

Yes, today the revelation given by Christ is saying to the church Get right for soon is the time that I must take you for my bride. Those that are of God shall hear His voice and they shall obey his voice and will not follow the works that are after Satan and all his angels. And those that are not of God will not change under any conditions and will grow worse as the church moves closer to that day. They are the Nicolatians; they are the synagogue of Satan; they are those who hold fast the doctrine of Balaam, they are those who teach contrary to God’s calling and seduce His servants to commit fornication; they are those who know the depth of Satan; They are those whose works are not perfect in the presence of God; they are those who are lukewarm and neither hot or cold; and lastly they are those who have defiled their garments and shall not walk with the Lord Jesus Christ, for they have been found not worthy.

Brethren, this I have received from understanding the lords work; let no man tell you otherwise; those who are of the synagogue of Satan and know his depth shall not be kept from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth The curse of satan will come upon all those who are in the church and are not living according to and keeping the true word of God and do no have any intent to repent asking God for forgiveness that they may be saved along with the true keepers of the faith. Yes they will be made to taste the wrath of God because they repented not. It does not matter how long they are in the church; it does not matter their position in the church; it does not matter their status in the church and lastly it does not matter that they are perceived to be great men and women of God; He knows all their works, and have found everyone of them lacking and behold He shall come quick in this last time.

Those that are willing repent of the iniquity and ask God forgiveness for their sins and refuse any longer to be the receptors of false doctrines and are then ready to accept all things pertaining to their salvation; no longer being the pawns of Satan and his angels; those God will save becoming a part of the church of Jesus Christ. And those shall be made to return to the church, that is the true church as it was established on the day of Pentecost , where Jesus Christ is the same today as He was yesterday and shall be the same tomorrow as He is today; One who shall present the church to Himself, having no blame and having no wrinkles and spots. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Yes, I say again, all those who are in the false apostolic churches, destined to be saved must leave behind the ways that are contrary to the ‘Church at Philadelphia’ the true church and walk therein. It does not matter how much they resist it; how much they even hate it; how much they not believe it; or how much they are taught other wise; it is still going to happen in this last time. There remains no where for the to go except to came and worship at the feet of the Philadelphians; it is just this simple; be saved or be lost.

Now, Just what are the iniquities of many of those who are members of the apostolic church and how are those things to be identified which are so easily besetting much of the church in this last time. Just what are they to do, who are in danger of hell fire and of not receiving the seal of the Holy Spirit of Promise, that they too might be saved? In that Christ, in John’s revelation, warned some of those in the church to repent, surely indicates that some of those are involved in wrong doing; and the iniquities committed in the church by so called saints of God is the sin that is the most besetting in that it is committed by those who do not feel that they can or do sin. Total self righteousness after the order of Satan and his commandments against the flesh. For any and all to have any chance of being saved they must all realize that there is a God who created man for His glory. And the order of things and God’s will on earth is and shall always be the same as it is in heaven, walk before Him and be perfect. Then observe; and become wise, refraining from all those things that favor the children of Satan; committing oneself to the commandments of the Lord. They all must not become the synagogue of Satan nor learn after the ways of the Nicolatians, who are perverse and hated by the Lord Jesus Christ. All those who must repent and redo their first works over must not go after the way of Balaam whose doctrine is an abomination unto the Lord seducing his holy servants to commit fornication and to drink of the cup of damnation and eternal destruction. Those sitting in the church of God, who are marked for His wrath; to escape they must repent and be transformed and reconfigured, returning to their first Love; and their return shall not be just in words from their mouth, but it must be a love living in their heart, surpassing all other love making them never to be Luke warm but always abounding in His grace according to the perfect faith that is found in Jesus Christ, our Lord.

Then they that are lacking in salvation and the holy principles of God that it embraces, must at last in this last time take on the whole armor of God that they might be able to stand and endure to the end as it are those who shall be saved from form the wrath of God. They must be willing to come and worship at the feet of the Philadelphiaians whom God loves for having kept His commandments and did not loose their faith in Him, whom they trusted and believed on according to that which is written in the scriptures, the law, the Prophets and the Psalms concerning Him. That is, those who have been reformed by the hearing of His word by their obedience; now, must be willing to come into the true Church of God, leaving behind any and all things including strange doctrines and teachings of error and moreover, the things that are of the world. They must now enter into the true church where God is bringing all his elect together, getting them ready for that great and notable day of the Lord. Forsake not the assembly of yourselves together, as some is; but even so much the more as you see the day approaching. Yes, brethren, we must all come together in the perfect unity of the faith, under the guiding force of the Apostles’ Doctrine set in the church by our Lord Jesus Christ, the Chief Cornerstone.

Now observe, if any of these are to be saved, they must like all other true saints of God return to and embrace the orthodox philosophy of the original new Testament church, established on the day of Pentecost where Peter and the rest of the apostles spoke and presided as the ministers of Christ. They can no longer embrace the concepts of conservatism and reformation and still be considered as being part of the church of God. For it is through conservative and reformed precepts, that Satan has used to create chaos in the apostolic church; causing individuals to believe that Jesus Christ is not the same toady, yesterday and forever. Yes, through this type of teaching many people have become confused and unsure of the salvation awarded by the giving of Jesus Christ. There are no places for conservative and reformed dogma in the church of God, as it is the body of Jesus Christ and is not subject to change. The church of God shall remain constant through out all the ages forever and forever shall it remain that which was established on the day of Pentecost; That which was with God from the beginning and is with Him today, and always will be with Him in eternity. It is these issues, orthodox, conservative, and reform, that will be examined as this epistle is closed out.

Now we shall look at the conditions that are prevailing in the church due to this conservatism and reform and will notice that many brethren have fallen by the wayside and many will continue to fall as long as it is tolerated in the church. It is the new way in which Satan causes many to forget their first love and turn to the works of the flesh more abundantly than ever before. To say that the ministers of today are better at interpretation of the holy scriptures than the apostles were is about as asinine as an individual can be. For I put you in remembrance of this: All of the apostles who preached Jesus Christ on the day of Pentecost, if you can recall had their understanding increased by our Lord Jesus Christ; And he said unto them, These [are] the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and [in] the prophets, and [in] the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, Brethren I would not that you should be ignorant about this thing; how that the understanding of the apostles were opened up by our Lord and on the day of Pentecost they spoke with this new knowledge and understanding and now, this day and time, for a minister who says that he is of God and has the heavenly calling; for him to say that it is alright for the saints to worship God, different than what the apostles set in place on Pentecost, is nothing more than the devil, old Satan speaking out of hell, standing in contempt of the true word, and showing all manner of disrespect for what god has given to mankind that he might be saved. And now in these last times he is able to convince many that they do not have to live and worship God like the saints in the days of old. He tells the weak saints and the righteous that God does not expect you to cut off the flesh and let it remain dead, according to His oarcles. No! Satan and his ministers will tell the saints that they are under bondage when they are reminded that they should live like the saints of old, showing no love and devotion for the world nor the things that are in the world. Love not the world, neither the things [that are] in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that [is] in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. Now in order for Satan to keep those in his synagogue; he is determined to move them from an orthodox position as it relates to salvation, to a worldly precept that is laced with conservatism and reform. And many who are walking the isles of conservative apostolic churches and reformed apostolic churches are not in the least, pleasing God. They are at least the instruments of Satan who now in this last time is determined to prevent the church from being caught up to be with the Lord Jesus Christ in the air where, and when at that time will forever be under His eternal domain for all times, forever and forever. When all tears shall be wiped away and the hope that has been in the church through faith in Him is now in the end made manifest.

Now it is needful for me to write unto the church that which was given us by our Lord’s servant, Jude: Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort [you] that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. This once delivered faith is, was, and always shall be that which was delivered to the church on the day of Pentecost by the Apostles of Jesus Christ, being, never in all the ages subject to change or being added to or anything taken away. It was God’s gift to the church through the giving of His Son Jesus Christ who established a righteousness which shall forever be above any other righteousness given under heaven, whereby we must be saved. Who being the brightness of [his] glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Wherefore, to be a member of that church which shall be saved from the wrath of God the church must embrace this righteousness, established by His death, Burial and resurrection. Whereby, remember this:Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let [them] slip. For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward

How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard [him];

Beloved be Not ignorant of this one Thing, how that He will take for Himself a glorious church having neither spot nor wrinkle: Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. Do not let Satan deceive you and yours for no one will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air without being in that church. Now in these last times, it is necessary that all church organizations who are under the apostolic banner be identified as to where they stand regarding the once delivered faith. Are they still that Orthodox church from Pentecost, or are they gone to another gospel, which is not another, by becoming conservative and reformed. All apostolic churches shall choose between the three modes; Orthodox, Conservative or Reform; so that the individuals in those bodies can determine that they have work to do to get ready to meet the Lord in the air. This will not be easy for many Pastors and church leaders to admit that they are not operating as the true church that was established on the day of Pentecost; but instead are operating as a different version. However, it shall be done. All new church directories from hence forth shall list that church as Orthodox, or as Conservative, or as Reform. Its Ministers must tell the members the truth and stop pretending to be that which they are not. This mandate must and shall be accepted by all those Ministers who embrace the Apostolic Faith. Again it will not be an easy thing for many to do but it shall be done as the church must come together and return itself to that true church established at Pentecost.

Now, as we await this great Coming Together, may the grace of God be with all of you forever more and that it shall keep you from falling through the mercy and love and peace that is found in the righteousness of Jesus Christ; and that your world may be without end with eternal life with Him, AMEN
