           Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong was right!

          He fulfilled the prophecy of the end time Elijah spoken of in the book Malachi. He was a voice crying out in the wilderness of modern day religious confusion, God used him to restore the basic foundational doctrines taught by Jesus Christ to the Apostles.  What H.W.A. taught was Truth!

Pastors Letter

November 20, 2019

Dear Unknown:

This letter was written to a man who asked an interesting question. I thought you might like to read the answer I sent to him.

The 144,000 are mention in only two places. In Revelation Chapter 7, they are mentioned in answer to a question from Chapter 6. Rev 6:17 For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand? The question is posed after two and half years of the three and half years of the Great Tribulation is complete. The final one year of the Great Tribulation is concurrent with the Day of the Lord. These are individuals who have been protected in a place of nourishment during that first period of time of the tribulation and would be protected for an addition year during the wrath of God. Rev 12:13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

These individuals are identified as the Philadelphian era of the Body of Christ in Revelation 3. Rev 3:10 Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth. These are Christians who have remained faithful to the Word of God, who have been zealous to do the work to prepare them for the Kingdom of God, and who retain the love of God to the end. Rev 3:8 I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it; for you have a little strength, have kept My word, and have not denied My name.

The 144,000 are mentioned again in Revelation Chapter 14 and identified as the firstfruits to God. In the book of James, those members of the Body of Christ are identified as the firstfruits. James 1:18 Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures. Those who have the Spirit of God and remain faithful to the end of the age are the firstfruits as identified by the Bible. Rom 8:23 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

One identifying factor that shows that the two groups of the 144,000 are the same is the sealing of each group by an angel in their foreheads. Rev 7:1 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, 3 saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads." 4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed: Those with the Philadelphian attitude are mentioned in Chapter 14 of Revelation as the individuals who will be sealed with the name of God in their foreheads. Rev 14:1 Then I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His Father's name written on their foreheads. This sealing is a positive factor in the identity of 144,000. Rev 3:12 He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he shall go out no more. And I will write on him the name of My God and the name of the city of My God, the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God. And I will write on him My new name.

So we see that the 144.000 are those who have God’s Spirit, remain faithful to the end, are protected during the Great Tribulation, and possess the Philadelphian era attitude. Remember, the word philadelphia in the Greek means “brotherly love.” That attitude of brotherly love is what is missing in many in the Body of Christ today. Christ warned us that that would not be the condition of the majority of the Church at the end time. Matt 24:11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. That is the missing ingredient in the second group mentioned in Revelation 7––the love of God that causes man to love his brothers. Rev 7:9 After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and...13 Then one of the elders answered, saying to me, "Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?" 14 And I said to him, "Sir, you know." So he said to me, "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His temple. And He who sits on the throne will dwell among them. 16 They shall neither hunger anymore nor thirst anymore; the sun shall not strike them, nor any heat; 17 for the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will shepherd them and lead them to living fountains of waters. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes."

This “great multitude” is the other Christians you asked about. They are those with the Laodicean attitude who have lost the attributes of the Philadelphian era of the Body of Christ. Rev 3:14 And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, 'These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, 'I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing'--and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked-- 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.

Those with the Laodicean attitude must go through the first two and half years of the Great Tribulation in order to bring them to repentance, and they must turn from being self-centered to being God-centered. They must repent, wash their robes in the Blood of Christ and take on the white robes of righteousness. It is a time of a terrible trial for the people of God. That is why the true ministry of Jesus Christ strives mightily to wake up the people of God. A true minister who loves the brethren does not want anyone, including himself, to have to experience the Great Tribulation which is soon coming on this world.

I hope this letter answers any questions you may have. If not, please let me know. I am always available to answer your questions.



In the service of Christ,

Ronald W. Laughland
