A lunar basket or lunar pail of water is formed in Virgo's hand when a solar crystal ball is formed near Orion that is 111° days away. From when Dorothy (Virgo) met with Herbert Armstrong (the Wizard) at his home in Pasadena in late 1981 till she (yellow radius line) threw a (lunar) pail of water on a senior evangelist (Orion) in 1982 might be 111 days. We have no confirmation of the exact dates yet. It is significant that the number 111 was also the P.O. Box of Herbert W. Armstrong and the church. Notice Toto (Canis Minor) pulling back the Milky Way curtain exposing the wizard and his crimes (Cetus, Capricorn, Andromeda, Pisces, etc.). Notice the wizard (Orion) looking into his (solar) crystal ball. Notice the wizard (Orion) turning up the flame of his temper and making a fast getaway from a losing argument in a (solar burner) hot-air (black Ecliptic Zodiac) balloon. Orion is the monkey constellation according to the Chinese. The twister (Milky Way), Munchkins (Gemini and Auriga), Glinda (Cassiopeia in white) and her wand (yellow radius line) are all present. Notice also that Herbert Armstrong holds a wonderful torch of light and (plain) truth in a dark world. Two witches dressed in black each ride a broomstick. Who are they? Pasadena and Big Sandy colleges both persecuted Christian students. Two witches' broomsticks indicate fornication with two different witches. Both HWA and GTA, as well as some other ministers, have been guilty of this sin. Leaving aside the cases of physical rape, many members were "raped" financially, emotionally and doctrinally by this church and its two colleges. The yellow radius lines indicate this by reaching into everyone's pockets and taking their gold. This is one meaning of "follow the yellow brick road" money trail. Herbert Armstrong died 16 January 1986 and his "contractual hold" on people died with him, or soon thereafter when the WCG ceased to exist or the Statute of Limitations "ran out." "Somewhere over the (Milky Way) rainbow, skies are blue (not black), and the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true."
TOTO (French "ALL") represents ALL the Christian students at Ambassador College each year and ALL years who gave ALL they had to fight against the unbiblical oppression. They bit back. They were ALL treated like a DOG. A "BLACK DOG" typifies the "guilt trips" (DEPRESSION) suffered at the hands of the "ministry." Also TOTO was ALL the students who were a WATCHDOG. Compare Isaiah 56:10 which says, "His WATCHMEN ... are like mute DOGS. They cannot bark (point out the sins)." Why not? Because there was a monopoly on the communications. Only evil men were allowed in the pulpit. Nevertheless, TOTO was ALL those who were able to bark or point out the sins and expose the evil. Toto "bit" Elmirah Gulches' ankle and "She hit TOTO over the back with a rake." "He got away, he got away" from the basket coffin. As for the charge that "TOTO is a menace to the community," this charge was proven false. TOTO simply pulled back the curtain:
Toto also pulled back the curtain on 1.) the enslavement contract, 2.) the "blind obedience" idolatry repeatedly taught, 3.) the countless guilt trips laid on innocent students, 4.) the attempts to seduce students using female employees, and 5.) fraud of a "bait and switch" entrance contract and misnomers like "Bible college" "recapturing true values" run by "Christians" which turned out to be a "sign-away-your-rights" entrance contract giving license to tyrants to persecute after Christians moved down to the college, and started taking classes, and paying tuition. 6.) Students were required to take classes they didn't want as pre-requisites, and then denied the classes they did want to take after completing the prerequisites. Students were threatened with prison time for voicing legitimate objections. Re-negotiating the contract and changing the conditions of the contract were procedures employed to "justify" cancelling classes in lieu of photocopied magazines; and trading a historicism thesis for no blame. Tape recorders were constantly used while trying to incriminate "rebellious" students. All employees were required to listen to these conversations. These intimidation and coercion techniques were used by the Wizard and his ministers to cause fear and encourage "blind obedience" and conformity." Dancing (men with women) is merely hugging set to music, and is not found in the Bible." Regarding "Divorce and Remarriage," God divorced Israel for harlotry. Yet the church's D & R ruling doesn't accommodate that reason for human divorce -- allowing only fornication before marriage as a reason.
Our Lord provided this vision as an answer to a prayer. An English woman named Dorothy asked for a vision. Then students (TOTO) used it to expose the wizard. A student took this vision and explained to all the employees. He told them to watch the movie called Wizard of Oz and then determine for themselves if it is a vision or not. The parallels are there for all to see. Thus the truth came out. They were told to count the number of parallels and the likelihood of each parallel being mere chance. If each feature has a one-in-five chance of occurring, and there are ten parallels or features, then the probability is one in 5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5x5 or 1 in 9,765,625 chance. While HWA was trying to publicly embarrass and intimidate the student in front of all employees, the student publicly exposed HWA by mentioning all of these offenses plus the vision that HWA was a "wizard" at Ambassador College. "Yes he does wonderful things when he publishes the booklets, Plain Truth, Good News, Correspondence Course and broadcasts on TV and radio. If you're an employee, obey him when he asks you to do something wonderful. But refuse to obey him when he tells you to do something wizard-like. Tell him you are a Christian -- that you can't do that job. Otherwise you won't enter into the Kingdom." "Who shall ascend onto thy holy hill? He who hath clean hands" (Ps. 24:3-4)
"Elmirah Gulch" is the wicked WITCH of the East and West. She owns "half the county" and has been doing evil for 23 years. Figuring back from 1981, that would be 1958. This is probably the date when Big Sandy and/or Pasadena Campus opened or began teaching "blind obedience." Two Deans of Students on these two campuses may have been the two fulfillments, although there is some disagreement of opinion. One student used the expression, "which he is" in referring to the Pasadena Dean and that was interpreted as "Witch he is" by another student. The Dean of Students would lock the door of the dorm to prevent students from exiting. He would lock the door of the Cafeteria to prevent students from coming in. He would steal their food tickets so they couldn't buy a meal. He would threaten them with prison time for criticizing him. He would try to seduce them using female employees. Employ a bait-and-switch fraudulent contract. Teach blind obedience idolatry. And lay guilt trips on innocent students using the bully pulpit. Deuteronomy 18:10-12 says, "There shall not be found among you any ... WITCH ... or a WIZARD... For all that do these things are an ABOMINATION unto the Lord." "These people are a stench in my nostrils, an acrid smell that never goes away" (Isa. 65:5). A student collected the grievances of the Big Sandy student body and then represented those students by setting up an appointment with the Big Sandy Dean who listened to him list them all. Elmirah Gulch and her soldiers are "green with envy." "Glinda -- the good witch of the North" was speculated to be Loma Linda University which was north of Pasadena and Big Sandy and belongs to Seventh-Day Adventists who don't persecute their students. If we look at the bigger picture, perhaps there is another broader message. We know there are two persecuting religions in the world -- Islam and Roman Catholicism. We can only wonder if the United States will be ruled by both of them just as Europe was in the past.

The chicks being transferred from the broken incubator to the open air world is symbolic of the Munchkins (man chickens) gaining their "Day of Independence" after Dorothy killed the witch or told the ministry to stop oppressing students. HWA actually shut down A.C. in 1982 temporarily because so many students had seen Chariots of Fire and Wizard of Oz and knew of the corruption going on. Notice the stunted growth of these dwarfs because of their artificial environment. Lollipops and Lullabys and well landscaped lawns are all artificial just like the people. "Political correctness" applies to religion too. Students at A.C. have been likened to "Chipmunks" and "yellow pencils." "People come and go so quickly here" because of being disfellowshipped or persecuted. "The sooner you get out of Oz altogether the better you are." Less guilt trips. The poppies are "attractive to the eyes and soothing to the smell" but poisonous. "Poppies will put them to sleep." False "religion is the opiate (opium from poppies) of the people." Both campuses are beautifully landscaped with flower-beds. But "the wicked witch is dead. Rub your eyes, Get out of bed." Get out of all artificial environments that stunt spiritual growth such as "blind obedience" and oppressive coercion of a ministry teaching idolatry. Too much reliance on ministers. God gave us minds to think with and Bibles to read. That is how we should form our conclusions.
The blue flying monkeys are "monks, monkeying around (with the Bible and with Christians) in their monkeries" according to Gerald Waterhouse. They are the equivalent of the sherriff and courts of Elmirah Gulch. Any minister that monkeys around with the Scriptures is a "monk, monkeying around in his monkery." They are "blue in the face" (exhausted) in their slavery and servitude to the "blind obedience" and idolatry in the church. They are "blue in the face" trying to teach lies that no Christian listens to or obeys. "They always throw a monkey wrench into the works whenever a Christian tries to teach the Bible," as one student put it.
Uncle Henry Gale typifies the twister itself with its gale-force winds which portrays God ("pillar of the cloud") who is the father of Dorothy and the power behind everything.
Aunt Emily Gale (Aunt Em) is the true church.
Emerald City is Ambassador College. This is the broken incubator. How was this Bible College broken?
After they arrive and pay their money and start taking classes, the students are told that they have NO RIGHTS and that by remaining and taking classes they are agreeing that they have NO RIGHTS. Ministers then use this "agreement" as a LICENSE to DISOBEY every CHRISTIAN PRINCIPLE and treat students terribly. Only five very basic Bible classes were taught in the first two years. They were called Fundamentals, Old Testament Survey, Doctrines, Gospels and Epistles. Any student who has merely read a few reference books as well as church booklets or Correspondence Course or Good News prior to coming to A.C. would know the same amount of information as was taught in these courses.
But in addition, students were required to take secular classes they didn't want to take as "prerequisites", but were not allowed to take 4th year Bible classes they did want and paid for. After two years of HWA postponing their objectives, each student was then given a choice of either signing a contract where he pledged his loyalty and obedience to the church with threats of a $3000.00 fine for each violation, or on the other hand, he must leave the college and forfeit his tuition money, time spent, and "prerequisite" classes taken. Either choice was STEALING from him -- so the process became FRAUD and his signature became meaningless. HWA was continually renegotiating the contract. FRAUD can go both ways. To those who deliberately pretend to be "Christian" and to operate a "Bible College" which "recaptures true values" and where "the word of God is the foundation of all knowledge," yet turn around and defraud, steal from and persecute Christians, they deserve to be defrauded. Students are forced to LIE.
Each new class after the two-year mark required that the student sign another contract not to disclose any material learned in that class to any one else. No evangelism or preaching allowed, which is the whole purpose of Christians going to a Bible College. Each Bible study had the same requirement. This is RENEGOTIATING the CONTRACT. No copy of these contracts are given to students. Three out of every four students who entered never graduated. If the administration prevents you from taking classes that were the whole purpose in your taking prerequisite classes, you deserve your money back and compensation for time lost. It is called "BAIT-and-SWITCH" by the legal profession.
This is how HWA gained control. Students didn't want to lose their money, time or prerequisites so they signed. Then students were progressively lured into more and more degrading, humiliating servitude until each student ended up paying five times over for what he thought was a normal college class. First by tuition. Then by "prerequisites" he must take which they deny were prerequisites. 3. This required time he must spend. But that was not enough. 4. He must then sign a contract stating that he won't teach contrary to the church or start his own church, and 5. that required obedience to church government -- "blind obedience" idolatry.
The correct response on the part of each student should be to retract his signature publicly, orally and within two weeks of signing. It then becomes a legal retraction. If they object and say "You can't do that," point out that the 5-hour Freshman lecture was also an oral retraction about 3-6 months after each student showed initial interest in going to the college. Whereas several significant changes (moving to Pasadena, taking classes, paying tuition) occurred between the student's initial interest and the Dean of Student's retraction ("It's not a Bible College; we're not Christians; we're not recapturing true values"), no significant changes occurred two years later between the student's signature and the student's oral retraction. Therefore the student's oral statement carries more weight than the Dean of Student's.
In addition, students have no rights. No privacy. No appeal of unfair decisions. They have no self defense from arbitrary "guilt trips" and criticism. It is unconstitutional. They are kept in the dark as far as policies and information. Not given a copy of contracts. HWA regularly uses a tape recorder to try and incriminate students. He puts words in other people's mouths that they wouldn't otherwise say. In other words, your best friend will come up to you and tell you that blind obedience is a good thing. He is required to say it to stay at AC. HWA is trying to get you to compromise and admit on tape that the lie is true. Then he can say you're a hypocrite. Ministers were characterized as "above criticism" from students since "God would correct them if they were wrong." This is a DOUBLE STANDARD: There shall be one law for the Israelite and the stranger (or visitor) that dwelleth among you (Teacher and student). No ruler above the law and no peasant beneath it (Num. 9:14; Lev. 24:22). But there were two different laws. BLIND OBEDIENCE to men's oral law however arbitrary it may be rather than the correct policy that the oral law is only binding (Deut. 18 & Matt. 24) if it doesn't add to or subtract from Bible law (Deut. 4:2). "Many pastors have destroyed my vineyard" (Jer. 12:10). Innocent students are continually criticized and PERSECUTED. Seduced. Made to INCRIMINATE themselves. Screaming and yelling at students using "cry aloud and spare not" when the scripture applies to sins not mere issues regarding fellowshipping, smiling, dating, where one sits and other such subjective and arbitrary criteria. "With force and with cruelty have you ruled them" (Ez. 34:4). "I am against the shepherds and I will require my flock at their hand" (Ez. 34:10). NO FAIR TRIAL: The right to a public, speedy trial where you can face your accuser and have equal time. Innocent till proven guilty. At Ambassador College, the administration met privately, gossiped privately and voted privately. Students were arbitrarily accused of "demon-possession" and "homosexuality." Any protest was called "rebellious. Yet the Bible gives students the right to follow Matthew 18:15-18. Students are kicked out of the college without even knowing what they supposedly did wrong. Students are DENIED the use of tape recorders. Ministers are ALLOWED to tape record students however. Students are FORBIDDEN to criticize ministers. But ministers regularly criticize students and attendance is MANDATORY.
Ministers claim they gave a 5-hour warning in Freshman year, explaining these concepts and so students are "without excuse for being defrauded of their time and money and innocense." If that warning were sincere, it would be a WRITTEN warning -- not oral. It would be given PRIOR to the student filling out an application, prior to the student paying money, prior to the student moving down to the campus and prior to the student getting immunized. If that warning were sincere, it would be given on an OFFICIAL CHURCH LETTERHEAD and signed by a high ranking CHURCH OFFICIAL everyone knows. As it is, it merely sounds like a legal disclaimer that is always OVERSTATED by lawyers to protect clients. A real warning, if they were sincere, would be a simple one-page piece of TYPEWRITTEN paper sent along with the college catalogue, with the OFFICIAL letterhead on it, BEFORE the student sends any money or moves down to the campus or signs any application. That letter would summarize what goes on in detail.
"Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks? Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed: but ye feed not the flock. The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with FORCE and with CRUELTY have ye ruled them. And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered. My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek after them. Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD; As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock; Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD; Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds; and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them" (Ez. 34:1-10).
This movie accurately portrays the fact that everyone seems to know what everyone else is doing by means of crystal balls. The wizard and the witch and Glinda all have one. On a star chart it would be portrayed as the FULL MOON or SUN. What is it? The ministry continually used students to spy on other students by asking the student questions and recording the answers using a hidden tape recorder. Then they preached a sermon against the one they disapproved of and thereby laid a "guilt trip" on the student. Of course this is occultic and bondage of the worst kind. Both the Wizard of Oz and the Cowardly Lion are seen using angry intimidation against others just as it was at A.C. What are the odds of this movie occurring by chance? We figure that there are, at the very least, TEN main parallels to reality contained in this movie. According to the laws of Probability, if each parallel has a one-in-five chance of occurring, then the odds against this happening by chance are 5X5X5X5X5X5X5X5X5X5 = 9,765,625 to 1.
Every chapter in the Book of Revelation is based on astronomy. Therefore we should expect to find Dorothy with her basket; Toto in Canis Minor; the Garland in Corona Borealis according to German astronomy; Capricorn is the Hot Air Balloon according to German astronomy; and the Ruby Slippers are Pisces (many red stars dot this constellation) according to the Chinese with a dragon on them to show that the "wicked will be ashes under the soles" of our feet (Mal. 4:3). One slipper is convex and the other concave. Same image. Or perhaps a red lunar crescent in Pisces provides the second slipper, but we don't know what event it portrays. We have placed the sun and moon on the star chart to form a basket and pail in Virgo Dorothy's hand. This puts the crystal ball and hot air balloon above the Orion Wizard 111 degree days away. Dorothy met with HWA in 1981 and threw a pail of water on a senior evangelist in 1982. We have no confirmation on the exact date from the participants yet.
The same God who foretold what would happen to individual people in 1980-82 by using a movie script from 1939 -- over 40 years before it happened -- also foretold what would happen to entire nations throughout history using the Scriptural visions of Daniel from 602 B.C.-539 B.C. and Revelation from 96 A.D. -- in some cases over 1000 years or 2000 years before they actually happened. "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in (the astronomical) heaven" (Matt. 6:10).Next Lesson: God's Hidden Message in "Chariots Of Fire" | Back to Home | Email Us
