Watchman's Teaching Letter #216 April 2016

This is my two hundred and sixteenth monthly teaching letter and ends my eighteenth year of publication. In the last letter, WTL #215, I brought up the subject of THE ELIJAH MINISTRY at Malachi 4:5-6, which I will quote again because of its GREAT IMPORTANCE:

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Yahweh: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

I should point out from the very beginning, there are only a Minor Few who have any idea of the SIGNIFICANCE of what this passage is all about and how its context accords with the rest of the Bible. Hopefully, before we finish this exposé, there will be absolutely no doubt in the reader’s mind how it fits into the design of Almighty Yahweh.

Watchman's Teaching Letter #215 March 2016

This is my two hundred and fifteenth monthly teaching letter and continues my eighteenth year of publication. In the last letter, WTL #214, I completed an autobiography of my wife Trillis (Tillie) and myself as best I could remember, and from the records I had at hand. That series of WTL lessons started with Letter #203, March, 2015, and continued for twelve months, so if you want to review this autobiography, you will need WTLs 203 through 214. Having read these you will have a better idea of who I am, and why I publish these things. The main purpose, though, is found at Malachi 4:5-6 which reads:

5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of Yahweh: 6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Who else other than those teaching the Christian Israel Identity Message are doing this very thing today?

Here is an excerpt from the Youth Message, London, England, reproduced from Destiny Magazine, July, 1947:

John Wilson and Edward Hine by Marie King:

John Wilson was born at Kilmarnock, Scotland, in 1779 and commenced his Inquiry into the Israelitish origin of the Anglo-Saxons in the year 1837. Studying at great length in the library of Trinity College, Dublin, he succeeded in tracing the Anglo-Saxons as far back as Media.

Who are the Biblical Angels? – A Critical Perspective, (#3)

Category: 

As I was nearing the end of paper #2, I was discussing the visibility and the invisibility of angels, and of Yahshua Christ in His resurrected body – which is the kind of immortal body we will receive in our next life. Whether or not, in our new immortal bodies, we will be able to disappear and, then reappear at our own discretion in a different location is not fully clear. If such should be the case, our present mode of travel (i.e., automobiles, trains, airplanes, even horseback) would become obsolete! But for moving materials and merchandise, it would seem we might still need roads, bridges, railroad tracks, ships, airplanes, along with airports. But all of this is simply conjecture.

Imagine a woman being resurrected, who lived during the middle-ages in a dark, damp, cold hut of one or two rooms heated by a crude fireplace which served for cooking in a cast-metal pot over the fire, with no running water, but wooden buckets were used for bringing in water for drinking, cooking and washing dishes, suddenly finding herself in an evenly heated home with a kitchen with hot and cold running water, automatic dishwasher, refrigerator, electric or gas kitchen range with a thermostat controlled oven, and an electric powered food-mixer, and many other kitchen appliances.

Concerning this, I should cite 1 Corinthians 2:9:

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which the Almighty hath prepared for them that love him.”

Who are the Biblical Angels? – A Critical Perspective, (#2)

Category: 

We will begin this second part of our theme by citing the 1894 9th edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica, vol. 2, p. 25, under the title “Angel” [with some corrections in brackets] where it states in part:

ANGEL is a transcription of the Greek ang´-el-os, a messenger, but in signification corresponds to the special theological sense which the latter word assumed among the Hellenistic Jews [sic Judaeans] (and hence in the New Testament and in Christian writings), by being adopted as the translation of the Hebrew Mal’akh. Thus both name and notion of angel go back to the Old Testament.

The Old Testament belief in angels has two sides, being on the one hand, a particular development of the belief in special manifestations of God to man; and on the other hand, a belief in the existence of superhuman beings standing in a peculiar relation of nearness to God. These two sides of the doctrine are historically associated, and cooperate in the later developments of Biblical angelology, but are not in all parts of the Old Testament fused into perfect unity of thought.

Watchman's Teaching Letter #214 February 2016

This is my two hundred and fourteenth monthly teaching letter and continues my eighteenth year of publication. In the last letter, WTL #213, I discussed, (3) “The church affiliation that Tillie and I had together as husband and wife.” Because I got sidetracked on the subject that “Our churches were infiltrated long ago, in the 1930s, by Christian socialists holding communistic ideologies, such as Harry Ward and Reinhold Niebuhr at Union Theological Seminary” (The Red Network by Elizabeth Dilling, p.31).” Of the notable alumni of Union Theological Seminary was one Frederick Buckley Newell (Bachelor of Divinity), of the 1916 Methodist church! Now one hundred years later, that problem is a hundred times worse than back then. I quoted Dilling’s Red Network, pp. 232-233, concerning the “Union Theological Seminary (and St. Stephens College),” and Red Network again at pp. 33-34, where she factually documented that the: “Methodists Turn Socialistic”, And so they remain, after swallowing up the United Brethren and Evangelical churches, and have highly influenced many other mainline denominations! It kind of makes one wonder where we presently stand in Biblical prophecy, doesn’t it?

Anyway, getting sidetracked on the above subject, I had to cut WTL #213 a little short of all of the details of Tillie’s and my church affiliation as husband and wife, especially with the Fostoria, Ohio Nazarene church. Tillie and I started to attend this church somewhere around 1961 or 1962, and as many of the men of that church were already customers at my barbershop, we were welcomed with open arms. It wasn’t long thereafter that we began to take part in the activities of that church, and eventually became members. Somewhere along the line, they voted me to be a board member of the church, which was quite a surprise to me. I would learn later that if the church were to go in debt for some large building project, in order to get that loan, the church board members would have to sign the mortgage note, with their own properties being used as security. Fortunately, at that time the Fostoria, Ohio Nazarene church didn’t have any outstanding debt, and under Pastor Flannery it stayed that way as long as he was there.

Watchman's Teaching Letter #213 January 2016

This is my two hundred and thirteenth monthly teaching letter and continues my eighteenth year of publication. In the last letter, WTL #212, I discussed my wife’s, Trillis Almina (Moehlman) Emahiser’s church affiliation more or less in detail, all the way back to Ireland in the 1600s. With this lesson I will address the church affiliation that Tillie and I had together as husband and wife. Originally, I planned to present, (1) the background of my own church affiliation, then (2) the background of my wife’s church affiliation, and lastly, (3) The church affiliation that Tillie and I had together as husband and wife. This will be the third, and last, part of this series on church affiliation.

After Tillie and I had gotten married, we moved into an apartment in a house on Ohio avenue in Tiffin, Ohio, where I had a job at Brimner and Borer’s Barbershop. My wife, Tillie, had to quit her job at Sears Roebuck in the bookkeeping department in Fostoria. After WW II, housing was quite a problem for several years. Tiffin was a college town, the home of Heidelberg University. Everywhere, at that time, the colleges and universities were full and overflowing with students because the WW II veterans were taking advantage of the G.I. Bill for educational monetary assistance. Before getting married, I had spent about two months trying to find some kind of housing for Tillie and I in Tiffin, but found that every housing unit had already been spoken for. Finally, about two weeks before our wedding date, I heard of a possible apartment opportunity by word of mouth, probably from one of the barber customers where I was employed. It was a fairly nice furnished apartment, but we had to enter through the living room of the woman who was renting the apartment. This didn’t give us the privacy we needed. After we climbed a stairway and closed the door behind us, we then had our privacy.

Who are the Biblical Angels? – A Critical Perspective, (#1)

Category: 

There are an age-long kaleidoscope of concepts on this subject, some like the Sadducees, who reject the very existence of angels (Acts 23:8). This is a very extensive topic, and will require several papers to resolve all of the difficulties we are bound to encounter.

To start with, we will examine the Hebrew and Greek words for “angel/s” as used in the Scripture on this matter, for otherwise we may arrive at a mistaken conclusion. So please carefully note the following:

From Strong’s #“H4397 ... mal’ak,mal-awk´; from an unused root meaning to despatch as a deputy; a messenger, specifically of God, that is, an angel (also a prophet, priest or teacher):– KJV renderings: ambassador, angel, king, messenger.”
