God's Hidden Message in
"Chariots Of Fire"

Does God still speak to men by means of visions and dreams? He says, "I change not" (Mal. 3:6). God is "the same yesterday, today and forever" (Heb. 13:8). If He spoke that way in the past, we can be certain he still speaks that way today -- by means of visions and dreams. "But where are they?" The movie "Chariots of Fire" is one such vision. How do we know? Because of amazing parallels that have occurred between reality and the events portrayed by the movie. Real-life events transpired in 1982 which paralleled the movie script. Uncanny parallels -- too many for mere haphazard chance. It is truly -- "an Enigma."

There are at least four references to "chariots of fire" in the Bible. The first is 2 Kings 2:11 which mentions Elijah being taken away in a chariot of fire. The second is 2 Kings 6:17 which mentions Elisha being protected by many chariots of fire. The third is Isaiah 66:15 which says "the Lord will come with fire, and with his chariots like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of fire." Fourth, "The chariots of God are twenty thousand" (Ps. 68:17).

Many members of the Worldwide Church of God have been struck and fascinated by the close parallels to reality contained in this movie. What parallels?

Running represents the "ritual of human endeavor" (p.175). Priests wore short breeches (Ex. 28:42) made of linen (Ex. 39:28) and went barefoot into the Sanctuary (Ex. 3:5; Josh. 5:15). Their fine white linen is their righteousness (Rev. 19:8) Thirty runners (p.105) may correspond to the thirty mighty men of David (2 Sam. 23:13,23). Just like Scripture, the movie deals with primarily three (vv. 9,13,16-19, 22-23) -- Eric, Harold and Andrew. At the beginning of the movie they are all labeled as "Chariots of Fire" just as Elijah was called "the chariot of Israel" (2 Ki. 2:12). As the movie closes, Blake's Jerusalem labels Harold Abrahams a "chariot of fire." Waters in the background are multitudes of people (Rev. 17:15). Just as the movie's three main runners were "British," so also the church believes in "British-Israel" doctrine in Pasadena. The music sounds like shofar blasts warning of impending doom.

Each European character and location also has its anti-type in North America. For instance, Cambridge and Caius (a Roman name) in England and the training "Camp" in France all may refer to Ambassador College. One student even labelled the dorm with a poster of England in a showcase outside. The French are called "frogs" which can refer to unclean spirits (Rev. 16:13). We wrestle against "wicked spirits in high places" (Eph. 6:12). This implies that France, and its anti-type America, will become a "habitation of demons" (Rev. 9; 16:14; 18:1). The symbol of the French is a rooster (coq in French). By a pun in Latin (Gallus = Galois, gailus = coq) it also means French. The United States with its large Statue of Liberty is the anti-type of France with its small Statue of Liberty. Both flags are red, white and blue. Both are republics emphasizing the "rights of man." Just as the English channel separates Europe from the island of Britain, so also the Juan De Fuca Strait separates the U.S. from the island portion of British Columbia. Washington even has a "Normandy Park" and Olympia and a ferry to a Victoria station in British Columbia's Vancouver Island as well as a small Statue of Liberty on Alki Beach. The Columbia Center, etc.

"Japanese marionettes" are Bunraku puppets with no suspended strings. Instead they have a hole in the back for the puppeteer's hand that operates internal strings. The puppeteers dress in black robes and cover their heads completely with a black hood that looks like a pope's miter. The puppets are very life-like but are only 2/3 size and their faces are bleach white with fright. (They therefore parallel the munchkins of the Wizard of Oz -- stunted growth.) What is this analogy telling us? How does it pertain to the United States today? Just as Herbert Armstrong was a puppeteer controlling his ministers and employees, even to the point of speaking through them and telling them exactly what to say (the listener would not know who was doing the speaking), so also America will be under the control of a religious puppeteer very soon who requires a similar absolute subjection. No religious freedom. American "puppets" will be white with fear. Not allowed to grow spiritually due to an amateur code.

The American Team chants "USA, USA, USA" just like many Roman Catholics chant "Viva Papa, Viva Papa, Viva Papa" in their idolatrous frenzy. Specifically Jackson Sholtz and Charles H. Paddock most likely represent the Beast and False Prophet. Their counterparts at Ambassador College fulfilled those sinister roles: The "CALIFORNIA CANNONBALL" was a "CANON" of the church and would continually make students "FEEL GAY" with his sermons against homosexuality. He was hostile toward and critical of students. The other yelled and screamed like a "THUNDERBOLT" laying guilt trips on innocent Christians. Remarkably, he gave a sermon on "The Antichrist" based on Arthur Pink's work. He stood "in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be" (2 Th. 2:4) someone we should blindly obey. "Church Government" idolatry at A.C. was nothing less than "blind obedience" (AMATEUR code) and was taught strictly by both the Dean of Students and a senior evangelist/teacher. "Yank" sounds like "Ankh", a pagan cross still used in the design of clerical robes, etc. "Students are not allowed to discuss the Bible in the cafeteria unless a minister is present." (No freedom of speech) Students were persecuted by both men, and therefore students had to "run against" them for about two years. In fact this movie was an answer to prayer for vindication from enemies. It is proof God answers prayer today. Sholtz, Watson, Abrahams, Murchison, Paddock and Bowman spell SWAMP. Ambassador College's stamp of approval -- graduation and ordination to the ministry -- became the "MARK" of the beast. These required idolatry.

A fulfillment of the "THREE WEEKS" time period occurred after two dons "DROPPED" one student from A.C. -- the "DROP FINISH." This is pictured by Orion running from the Pasadena college with an Olympic torch preserving knowledge. Perseus has wings on his heels. Notice the solar gold medal pendant being hung around his neck. Notice the Auriga "chariot of fire" (cp. Elijah in 2 Ki. 2:11-12). This student FASTED twice a week while at A.C. -- hence "FASTEST" man. Like many other students, he was (crescent moon) denied classes, denied graduation, and denied a job from A.C. due to rejecting "blind obedience." He left the college by bus for the Feast of (red radius tent) Tabernacles Sept. 25, 1982 till Oct. 15, 1982 Sabbath when he returned to the local church ("I'll carry the FUTURE with me"-- but the star charts were FORGOTTEN in the stress like a DARK moon hidden in Gemini. Nor did he reveal the movie parallels immediately.). That was 21° days exactly during which the Feast of Tabernacles was held in Squaw Valley, CA -- site of the 1960 winter OLYMPICS. His brother drove him through Olympia Washington to finally arrive home in a rented Plymouth Champ. The GOLD MEDAL is defined as God's law: "The law of thy mouth is better unto me than thousands of GOLD and silver" (Ps. 119:72) and "when he has tested me, I will come forth as GOLD" (Job 23:8-10; 1 Pet. 1:7). The "ribband of blue" refers to the desire to obey Numbers 15:38. Then the church lawyer quit. Another right-hand man left. Then another. "He ran them off their feat." Then Herbert Armstrong died about three years later and the entire church apostasized (campus aflame) and became just another politically-correct Protestant denomination. "Babylon the great is fallen" (Rev. 18:1).

This former student was given one plot of land by his father on Dec. 28th, 1995. He subdivided it into "TWO YARDS" to double its value and the shortplat application was approved by the city council in 2004. Furthermore, when his parents died, he inherited half of their property. And when his uncle died, he inherited half of that property. "TWO YARDS" again. He was assigned as executor of both estates. After paying liens on the properties, funeral and medical expenses, etcetera, anything left over was converted to GOLD and SILVER coins "FOR KEEPS", because, unlike paper money, they can't be inflated away.

If three weeks refer to 21 years, then counting from 1982, we arrive at 2003 in Aquarius using a degree-month scale (21x12= 252° months) when this same former student hired a web designer to create this web site (red radius line) teaching the Bible. Notice the red cord connected to the lunar computer monitor. Also a dentist (Aquarius) (red radius line) suctioned out and removed (red radius line) Mercury from all his (lunar) teeth and replaced it with non-toxic (black crescent) ceramic ("Now you've got it OUT OF YOUR SYSTEM"); and an optometrist (Aquarius) performed LASIK on his (lunar) eyes to give him "ANOTHER TWO YARDS" of vision. Notice both the black lunar "flap" and the red radius lazer "zap" -- hence the name "flap n zap." ("Ten lonely seconds to JUSTIFY my entire existence" -- 20/20 vision). Three LASIK operations per eye. Therefore, he "LOST, LOST, LOST" cornea three times. Remarkably, both operations involved "PUNCHING a HOLE in his CROWN." Both also involved "DECAPITATION." The cornea or transparent "CROWN" of the eye is surgically cut or "DECAPITATED" using a razor in a cube-like "BLACK BLOCK" that rests on the eye. After the dental CROWN operation, the dentist advocated taking ozone DROPS (Oxygen Elements Plus). After the LASIK CORNEAL operation, the optometrist required Refresh Tear DROPS. These were both a "DROP FINISH." If we add 419° months to 1982, we arrive at 25 Aug 2017 (red-dotted line). By this time perhaps all the star charts will be regenerated from scratch. Is 25 Aug 2017 the (red radius) finish line -- IMMORTALITY? Does the crescent picture a new cornea? A gold crown? Notice the (solar and lunar) metronome. Hydra, Leo, Pegasus and Ursa Major are all crossing the finish line. But Ursa Minor (the "Little Flock") clearly wins by a tail since the red tape finish line is being pulled by him.

We are convinced this movie is a vision from God. We have not even included many additional parallels in this short article. We know that SIGNS and MIRACLES follow the saints and confirm their ministry and His message ( Ex. 4:3-9; Nu. 16:28-35; Judges 6:11-21; 1 Sam. 12:17-18; 1 Ki. 17:24; 18:37-39; 2 Ki. 20:8-11; Matt. 11:2-5; Mark 16:17-20; John 5:36; Acts 2:22; 8:6; Heb. 2:3-4). But what is the vision telling us? The movie Chariots of Fire seems to dovetail into chapter 10 of the Apocalypse. Notice that both the movie and Revelation chapter 10 have runners holding torches. Both also have the Chariot of Fire label or imagery that occurs simultaneously. Both also portray the gold medal (sun) and ribbon of blue (sky). Both have a pendulum. Etcetera. Therefore we conclude that they are both dealing with the same subject matter. On 26th May, 1453, as the sun ignites the Olympic torch held by Orion, the fiery chariot sun-wheel aligns under Auriga the Charioteer and the Milky Way becomes a long stream of runners or "chariots of fire" heading west to universities and printing presses in westerm Europe to ignite the Renaissance and Protestant Reformation. These Christian "stars" are fleeing from Constantinople before the Moslem Turks take over which will result in destruction of everything Christian, and no religious freedom. If Constantinople parallels Washington D.C. -- both eastern capitols named after Christian generals -- then we can expect a similar scenario for the United States which is the anti-type of the Roman Empire in general, or France in particular. "Babylon the Great is fallen is fallen" (Rev. 18:2). "Thy will be done in earth, as it is in (the astronomical) heaven" (Matt. 6:10).

But where does this Protestant Reformation take hold and blossom fully? Not in Florence Italy. Not at Wartburg Castle in Germany, or even in Basel Switzerland or Rotterdam Holland, but in a place called "WHITEHORSE Inn" at the University of Cambridge in BRITAIN where all the Bible students at Cambridge met with Tynedale. Look at a starchart. Where does the stream (Milky Way) of Christian scholars run to? What is their final destination? Sagittarius -- a WHITE HORSE (The Milky Way flows well inside the Sagittarius constellation). Where is this WHITEHORSE in the North American continent? Just north of BRITISH Columbia -- in the Yukon. Notice the "SIGN" pointing to the white dot on this map. Dots on maps are towns. Our Lord gives us a map of where to flee to. Christians from Washington D.C. (the yellow dot on this map which is aflame), students from Ambassador College (Cambridge), and any other Bible followers, should travel there and meet together with our Lord. The race must come at a time when PRESERVING Christian truth is paramount because of a Moslem invasion and an EMP. From Washington D.C. to Pasadena, and all points in between, Christians must race to WHITEHORSE Yukon. PRESERVING the Judeo-Christian way of life from extinction and then RESTORING it to the west is certainly worthy of a gold medal and a blue ribbon. They meet together with our Lord Yeshua in a resurrection and start a new Reformation and a new Renaissance. These are the Bible followers who will mount up onto WHITE HORSES (Rev. 19) as part of Christ's returning cavalry. They obey our Lord and "flee Babylon" (U.S.) rather than conforming to false idolatrous religion. They RESTORE his truth that has been lost in the "dark ages" of both Europe and America.

PRESERVING and DISTRIBUTING the Greek manuscripts (Orion) came JUST BEFORE both the Renaissance and Protestant Reformation. This same scenario may occur again if Washington D.C. (paralleling Constantinople) and the eastern United States (paralleling eastern Europe) are invaded by Islam. Bible followers flee west and then head north to Whitehorse, Yukon PRESERVING the Bible way of life and paralleling Elijah's work (Mal.4:5-6) RESTORING "all things" (Matt. 17:11-- spiritual education). This will be one element in the Millenium RENAISSANCE and a new "Protestant REFORMATION" led by our Lord Yeshua (paralleling Martin Luther, Tyndale and King Henry VIII). This may involve PRESERVING many web sites and books -- the best in American Judeo-Christian society -- before the end of this way of life. Both an EMP, and possibly a RAPTURE, in 2017 will remove the beneficial influence of many Christians from America. That is why the preservation of truth is so important. Eastern Europe became very dark. "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done, is that which shall be done" (Eccl. 1:9). God says, "I change not" (Mal. 3:6). He is "the same yesterday, today and forever" (Heb. 13:8).

Just as Elijah PRESERVED and RESTORED the TRUTH in Israel during and after it apostasized, so also Bible students at A.C. (Cambridge) in the WCG have PRESERVED the TRUE DOCTRINES of the WCG before that church finally apostasized when HWA died. Otherwise that light of truth would have been snuffed out. The movie dealt with the prejudices and injustices against Bible-followers as they PRESERVE and RESTORE the TRUTH (gold medal) to Britain. This message should be applied to a larger theater of the United States. The entire United States is becoming anti-Christian just as Ambassador College apostasized. America is apostasizing and dying just as Herbert Armstrong died. It is becoming prejudiced against Bible-followers as it enters a new dark age. God himself has become "persona non grata." This is happening now. All fifty states allow same-sex marriage. Christians must take what is worthwhile in our American society in order to PRESERVE and RESTORE IT in the west. Flee any oppressive religious "Babylon" (18:4) and PRESERVE your Biblical heritage. This includes PRESERVING both books and websites --before an EMP and before a RAPTURE. Do not conform to the expanding apostasy and idolatry. "Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh (In 2026), shall he find the Faith (Bible followers) on the earth?" (Luke 18:8)

Recall that Elijah was such a fast marathon RUNNER that he beat Ahab's chariot from Mt. Carmel to Jezreel -- 23 miles away. Each of these "Elijahs" may be like a "chariot of fire" (2 Ki. 2:11-12) since the sun forms the fiery WHEEL of Auriga's chariot (and MOON WHEEL at the other end of the Milky Way axel) at the same time it is a Greek OYLYMPIC TORCH. "For, behold, the Lord will come with FIRE, and WITH HIS CHARIOTS like a whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of FIRE" (Isa. 66:15) -- Auriga with the star Capella -- the Charioteer with his chariot superimposed. Anciently Leo, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor were all given the chariot symbol as well. The stephanos (sun CROWN made of leaves of gold) was given to victors in the GREEK GAMES. The same word is used of the CROWN of life (James 1:12; 2 Tim. 4:8) and CROWN of thorns (Matt. 27:29). Astronomically, Orion's hand is lifted up to heaven as it holds an open book. In order to COME BACK with Christ, as CHARIOTS of FIRE, we must be resurrected and TAKEN AWAY with him first in a secret "rapture" which occurs at WHITEHORSE. That is the FINISH LINE where the victor receives IMMORTALITY and the CROWN of LIFE.

The date 26th May,1453 was certainly a real-life GREEK OLYMPIC GAME for these GOLD-MEDAL champions (The sun symbolized a GOLD MEDAL -- 1 Cor. 3:12; the light blue sky a BLUE RIBBON -- Nu. 15:38) RUNNING for their lives, as they must have been, behind enemy lines (1 Cor. 9:24; Gal. 2:2; 5:7; Philip. 2:16; 3:14; Heb. 12:1) carrying precious Greek manuscripts. After escaping, they probably lit signal fires to let the citizens of Constantinople know they had escaped successfully. (See Lesson 60 for more detailed commentary). The Turks were darkening the sun (Christ, "the sun of righteousness" -- Mal. 4:2 -- is "persona non grata") creating the "Dark Ages" but the Scriptures were lighting up a dark world like a TORCH. Scriptures enlightened Christians, who read them, like a HALO illuminates Orion's face (The star chart predicted May 26 precisely to the very day). The pillars of fire (feet) and the cloud were leading Israelites (sun, moon and wandering stars [Gen. 37:9-10] toward Britain -- westward from Constantinople (which fell to Moslem Turks on May 29th) toward the Promised Land (Britain). In one hand, Orion holds a Greek "open scroll" (10:2) or open book high to preserve it from the flood. Notice the sun's orb directly on the scroll makes it a TORCH. When the Bible is openly read, it becomes a TORCH. "Thy word is a LAMP unto my feet and a LIGHT unto my path" (Ps. 119:105; Greek OLYMPIC TORCH). This began both the Renaissance and Protestant Reformation. A closed book is not understood (Isa. 29:11-12; Dan. 12:4). Papal Rome achieved this by keeping the Bible in Latin which few could read and hidden away in monasteries where few visited. Permission was required to even read it. But Catholic armies were too busy fighting the Turks to persecute Protestants; and Greek scholars fled west with their manuscripts and knowledge which they taught. Orion's eastern foot was flooded by the expanding Euphrates (Turks). They escaped to the foot on dry land in the western Roman Empire (see Daniel 2:33,41), thus preserving the Greek manuscripts and opening them up to people's understanding (10:2) just when Gutenberg invented movable type and printed the first Bible on vellum (animal hyde) in 1455. The scholars kept quiet, only spreading their manuscripts among other learned men in the colleges and universities and this began the Renaissance or Rebirth of Learning. The result was a revival in the study of the classical languages, Greek being taught in Europe for the first time in 1458 A.D. By 1483, in only 30 degrees of time (30 years -- the width of each constellation), Caxton published the earliest verses of the Bible to be printed in English.

The SUN ...is like a BRIDEGROOM coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth like a strong man to RUN a RACE" (Ps. 19:4-5) (from Constantinople to Cambridge in western Europe). He is clothed with a CLOUD because Christ "cometh with CLOUDS" (Rev. 1:7) and "maketh the CLOUDS his CHARIOT" (Ps. 104:3). What are CLOUDS? "Thou shall be like a CLOUD to cover the land, thou, and all thy HORDES, and MANY PEOPLE with thee" "a GREAT COMPANY, and a MIGHTY ARMY" (Ez. 38:9,15; Jer. 4:13). "A CLOUD of witnesses" (Heb. 12:1) ran from Constantinople to western Europe concealed by a CLOUD of fog. The dispersion of Greek-speaking intellectuals ("a [Milky Way] cloud of witnesses ... (who) RUN with patience the RACE" -- Heb. 12:1) and texts into a Europe which for centuries had access to none (black zodiac), sparked the Renaissance and Protestant Reformation.

The Marseillaise Hymn will be America's hymn: "Ye sons of Freedom wake to glory (in a resurrection)! Hark! Hark! what myriads bid you rise (in a resurrection)! Your children, wives and grandsires hoary, Behold their tears and hear their cries (religious persecution)! Shall hateful tyrants (Pope, Sultan, Emperor -- "unclean and hateful birds") mischief breeding With hireling hosts a ruffian band, Affright and desolate the land, When peace and liberty lie bleeding? With luxury and pride surrounded, The vile insatiate despots dare, Their thirst for gold and power unbounded, To mete and vend (measure out and sell) the light and air. Like beasts of burden would they load us (with guilt trips), Like gods would bid their slaves adore; But man is man and who is more? Then shall they longer lash and goad us? O Liberty! can man resign thee? Once having felt thy generous flame, Can dungeon bolts and bars confine thee, Or whips thy noble spirit tame? Too long the world has wept bewailing, The blood stained sword our conquors wield; But freedom is our sword and shield, And all their arts are unavailing! To arms, to arms, ye brave! The avenging sword unsheathe! March on, march on, all hearts resolved on liberty or death!

As Ambassador College became aware of the movie called "Chariots of Fire," nobody wanted to reveal it to the key players fulfilling the roles on the campus lest that spoil the parallels between real life and the movie script. Students and teachers alike wanted the unplanned miracles to continue. Therefore the depression continued and the prayers for vindication continued long after most people on the campus had seen the movie and the day-to-day "coincidences" occurring. This was therefore the "BLINDNESS" that afflicted "Samson." Craig gave two lectures, about three months apart, in 1982. He explained the Book of Revelation using the British-Israel, historicist interpretation, with star charts, and the movie Chariots of Fire mixed in. A small $5.00 admission price was charged each time. But Harold wasn't invited either time. He stood at the door for awhile as the second lecture began, but was told he was not invited and needed five follars to attend. Then the sound was turned off to the lobby. He went back to the dorm and thus was kept BLIND lest he understand what was happening. He was in the "DARK" -- a "DARK, defensive competitor." In 1982, Harold and Craig decided to compete and agreed that the resurrection would constitute the finish line.

The Gilbert and Sullivan Operettas can be compared to the Scriptures (Ez. 33:32). Gilbert (God the Father) writes the lyrics and Sullivan (Jesus the Messiah) composes the music. They mention familiar names at A.C. Many verses of these operettas are biblical in nature or prophetic or are used as if they were Scripture in the movie: Demons called toads (p.80). Grin and bear it (p.33). Ralph Rakestraw (p.103). Never say Damn (p.106). Skim milk masquerades as cream. All that glitters isn't gold. Spare the rod spoil the child (p.122-3). Strong his arm ... alone he is fit to fly (p.141). Always act in accordance with the dictates of your conscience and chance the consequences (p.143). Make hay while the sun shines. Where there's a will, there's a way (pp.153; 280-281). Apostle (p.200). Good as gold, did as she was told (p.216). Retribution, like a poised hawk, came swooping down upon the wrongdoer (p.216).

Who was Eric Liddell? He was Scotch and head of the Phi-LIDDELL-phia Church -- a "star (Israelite leader -- Dan. 8:10; 12:3) attraction" and "missionary" (apostle). H.W.A. was told that the name "Armstrong" is related to royalty. He visited the Loch Lomond S.E.P. (Summer Education Program) in 1983 and was the star attraction and of course also a missionary. Sandy McGrath was Raymond F. McNair who looked after Herbert Armstrong. H.W.A. "often said that giving beats receiving" (his "Give vs. Get" sermon) and regularly spent "a fortune in postage stamps" sending out the Worldwide News, Good News and Plain Truth. "Mrs. L" is his mother (Mrs. El -- the bride of El) and "Compromise is the language of the Devil." "The Flying Scot" is H.W.A. who flew around the world in his Grummand Gulfstream 2. H.W.A. was four times as old as the typical A.C. student (90 vs. 22), hence he ran the 440 yard race while Abrahams ran the 100 meters. Herbert Armstrong returned to Pasadena from Tucson permanently on April 30, 1981 and this is when students "raced against him." He misquotes scripture and is portrayed as a Sunday-keeper and mainline Protestant. He said "I'm Roman" (false) because he persecuted H.M.A. who "lost, lost, lost." Eric Liddell ran in the "hills of the Scottish Highlands" and since "hills" are small nations (Isa. 2:1-3 & Micah 4:1-3), H.W.A. visited Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Malaysia according to the 1984 Worldwide News, as well as the Philippines and other nations."Eric Liddell was" "given a lesson in blind obedience, poor fellow." "There goes Daniel into the lion's den." The British Olympic Association is B.O.A. and tried to cause Eric to "deny his beliefs." Both Eric Liddell and H.W.A. were strict with regard to the Sabbath. Eric was not "willing to compromise." "After 300 meters, rigor mortis sets in" which is muscular stiffness following death. Everyone kept saying H.W.A. would die, but he kept living till 86. The number 451 refers to 1 Kings 18:19 where the prophets of Baal numbered 450 to Elijah's one. H.W.A. has likened himself to Elijah and received "Elijah's Cup" from Golda Meir. It is debatable what the phrase "best man" means, since it can be taken two different ways. Best runner or the one who doesn't get married. The "best man" is the runner up at a wedding. The bridegroom and the bride get married. All others are mere spectators. In addition, there have been other fulfillments of Eric Liddel among the students at A.C. When H.W. Armstrong died, Tkach took over and made it mainstream Protestant. Then after he died, his son made further doctrinal changes. Therefore it became the job of students to LEAVE that college and PRESERVE the true doctrines before the apostasy took place.

Why was Herbert Armstrong portrayed as a Sunday-keeping Protestant when he had been a Sabbath-keeper and feast-keeper for most of his life? Because he fell short in so many areas. He was wrong on 1. church government (blind obedience to men vs. obeying Bible) "God backs him up even if he's wrong". This was blatant idolatry affecting all members of the church. 2. Divorce & Remarriage (premarital fraud only vs. adultery and uncleanness also) Many wrecked lives due to this false teaching. 3. the calendar (calculated vs. visual) 4. the rapture (not true vs. true) 5. prophecy (futurism vs. historicism) 6. war (passivist vs. fight) 7. tassels (no prayer shawls vs. prayer shawls) and mezuzah (a nail not allowed vs. we'll tape it up) and phylacteries (necessary vs. not necessary) 8. students required to listen to constant false criticism (with no recourse vs. verbal self-defense against guilt trips). 9. Passover festival (superficial communion vs hagadah: bitter herbs, Parsely, lamb, matzos, four cups wine, & charoset) (no dancing vs. dancing) 10. Feast of Unleavened Bread (leavened moist brownies vs. matzo crackers) (no dancing vs. dancing) 11. Pentecost (superficial vs. bring firstfruits in basket -- Deut. 26) (no dancing vs dancing) 12. Feast of Trumpets (no trumpet vs. blowing the shofar 100 times) (no dancing vs. dancing). 13. Feast of Tabernacles (motel & feast gifts vs sukkah dwelling & four species waved) (no dancing vs dancing). 14. purity laws including Niddah (ignore vs. follow using a Mikveh) 15. Using the title "Mister" when the Bible forbids calling a man "master." 16. dress code (mixed "dress suit" fabrics vs. 100% cotton or 100% wool) 17. Entire dorm working in Cafeteria on Sabbath (Levites worked on Sabbath vs. prepare on Friday) 18. Selling pork hot dogs at sports stadium (okay to sell to "strangers" vs. "do unto others as you would have them do to you") 19. Students have no rights vs. students have rights; etcetera. (renegotiating contracts; bait-and-switch; seducing; enslavement) 20. Rejecting both visions. 21. Dancing is hugging set to music vs. ballroom dancing at A.C. This is what is meant by "wild, natural style" of running. "God, who ... calleth those things which be not as though they were" (Rom. 4:17), knew what a Bible student at A.C. in 1982 would develop over the course of his life. It would make the WCG look Protestant by comparison.

Who was Sibyl? The Babylonians worshipped the god Sibi as the "collective personification of the seven evil spirits" and the word sibi means seven (Mythology of All Races, Langdon, p.147). The god Sibi seems to have survived in India to this day as Siva, who is also worshipped as a seven-headed serpent (The letters "b" and "v" alternate in many languages). It is interesting that the priestess who claimed to listen to and speak for the serpent was called a sibyl and the books of these priestesses were Sibylline books. The serpent's voice is a hiss, and the hissing letters of our alphabet are called sibilants. The Latin word sibilo means to hiss and is at times directly connected with the voice of the serpent (see this word in Harper's Latine Dictionary). In Apte's Sanscrit dictionary we find Siva defined as "serpent" and "the number seven." Our own word "seven" seems to be related to this Sibi-Siva root as is also the root sep meaning "seven" in such words as septet. In Egypt the word Sep is defined as "serpent," "chief of seven," the word "Seba" is "serpent of evil" and Sepa is "serpent." (An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary, Budge) and "a mythological serpent fiend." Therefore, when the church (Sibyl) is righteous, she is a seven-branched menorah. When the church (Sibyl) sins, she is a seven-headed snake. "He says he means to clear his mind of me" refers to those who left AC and the WCG because of its venom. Other fulfillments may involved actual women.

"One little maid ("little flock") is a bride Yum-Yum (She tastes good so is not spit out of Christ's mouth like Laodicea -- Rev. 3:16). Two little maids in attendance come ("five ... wise and five foolish" virgins -- Matt. 25:1-3; Philadelphia & Laodicea; Leah & Rachel; Pre-trib & Trib). Three little maids is the total sum.... From three little maids take one away (One third of church is in pre-trib resurrection, 2016-2017), Two little maids remain and they, Won't have to wait very long they say" because the second maid is the tribulation Rachel saints and the difference is only seven years (Gen. 29:27; Judges 14:2-12; Lev. 23:34) or 2026. Yum-Yum sings the most beautiful song in the entire movie or book: "The sun whose rays Are all ablaze With ever-living glory, Does not deny His majesty -- He scorns to tell a story! He don't exclaim, "I blush for shame, So kindly be indulgent." But, fierce and bold, In fiery gold, He glories all effulgent! I MEAN TO RULE THE EARTH, As he the sky -- We really know our worth, The sun and I! Observe his flame, That placid dame, The moon's Celestial Highness; There's not a trace Upon her face Of diffidence or shyness: She borrows light That, through the night, Mankind may all acclaim her! And, truth to tell, She lights up well, So I, for one, don't blame her! Ah, pray make no mistake, We are not shy; We're very wide awake, The moon and I!" (Yet the church is actually sound asleep in many ways)

Cambridge was Ambassador College -- "the finest university in the land" because it was a Bible-based curriculum. But anti-Semitic and amateur. Far from "recapturing true values," it was in fact a "dark Satanic (diploma & rumor) mill." Yet Cambridge is the place the Reformation sprang from in Britain. In the same way, Ambassador College may be the place from which another Reformation springs, even though its faculty consisted of "Japanese marionettes" since you never knew who was speaking -- HWA or the person you were talking to. The strings were the paycheck and the blind obedience. Students also were required to use a portable tape recorder and to speak whatever HWA told them to say. It was a "hold of every unclean and hateful bird" (Rev. 18:1). It's "corridors of power were filled with venom and jealousy" producing midgets and dwarfs because the incubator was broken, but that is a different vision (Lesson 42). True Christians can't pass through the doorway to the ministry since the entrance requires blind obedience idolatry. It was in 1521 that Luther's books appeared in England; and Cambridge students formed a study-group at the White Horse Tavern. William Tyndale met there with other would-be Reformers (Robert Barnes, Thomas Bilney, Thomas Cranmer, Hugh Latimer, Matthew Parker, Nicholas Ridley, John Frith and Miles Coverdale) exactly three-and-a-half years (11:11) from 1517 (SUN in Gemini) to 1521. It was known as "Little Germany" because it was the centre for discussion about the exciting and dangerous ideas of Martin Luther ("Sola Scriptura" -- Don't obey the Pope). Students from Ambassador College are also discussing exciting ideas. The Apocalypse STAR CHARTS predict the secret return of our Lord in 2017. He will parallel the role of King Henry VIII in 2026 and his kingdom will extend worldwide for 1000 years thereafter. This time the Reformation will succeed fully.

Sam Mussabini is the unpopular opposite of a "strict amateur code." He's "the BEST" (our Lord Yeshua and God our Father). But people shun him as a "FOREIGNER" (Hosea 8:12), not realizing that the true church for centuries has been both ITALIAN (Waldensian, Albigensian) and ARAB (Nazarenes, Donatists). He is "PERSONA NON GRATA ." People say, "We don't need to OBEY the Bible" and "The LAW was done away with." But the name "SAM" means "HEARS" or "LISTENS" or "ASKS." God LISTENS to our prayers. He HEARS our requests when we ask. The name "MusSABini," in contrast to "MusSOLini," refers to the SABbath rather than SUNday -- SOL's day. We LISTEN to Him on that day. We HEAR what HE asks of us on the SABBATH. If we DO what HE ASKS through the pages of the Bible, He will DO what WE ASK through prayer (cp. Zech. 7:13). That is how he COACHES us and TRAINS us. Arabic "Mussab" means "STRONG" or "CAPABLE." The "pursuit of EXCELLENCE" is PROFESSIONALISM derived from OBEYING the Bible -- a professional coach -- "only Scripture." It will be a Millenial Renaissance. A "strict amateur code" is blind obedience to clergy -- Sunday-keeping, Trinity, Latin. (HWA was wrong on the calendar, tassels, sukkahs, Passover, divorce, church government, rapture, war, etc.). This leads to stunted growth. Humans become PUPPETS that are 2/3 size or MUNCHKINS that are half as tall. To "CARE about THINGS that REALLY MATTER" is to care about what the Bible teaches, in every area of our lives. By reading the Bible, you can read God's mind. Scripture is the DNA code that people can implant inside of themselves to become "like a god." "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee" (Ps. 119:11). They make it a part of their lives, just as Abraham did: "Because that Abraham OBEYED my VOICE, and KEPT my CHARGE, my COMMANDMENTS, my STATUTES, and my LAWS" (Gen. 26:5). That's what it means to be "Abraham's" seed. People don't realize that WISDOM comes from first OBEYING his COMMANDMENTS. "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of WISDOM. A good understanding have all they that DO HIS COMMANDMENTS" (Ps. 111:10). "I have more UNDERSTANDING than all my teachers ... I UNDERSTAND MORE than the ancients, because I KEEP THY PRECEPTS ... Through thy PRECEPTS I get UNDERSTANDING" (Ps. 119:99-104). "Because thou hast REJECTED KNOWLEDGE, I will also reject thee ... seeing thou hast FORGOTTEN the LAW of thy God, I will also forget thy children" (Hos. 4:6). "The Holy Spirit which God hath given to them that OBEY HIM" (Acts 5:32). "If ye continue in MY WORD, then are ye my disciples IN DEED; and ye shall KNOW THE TRUTH, and the truth shall make you free" (John 8:31-32; 2 Tim. 3:16).

Harold Abrahams had multiple CONTEMPORANEOUS fulfillments. A number of people laid claim to this character, or had a part to play in fulfilling the role. One student named Sullivan sang "He is an Englishman" in a Gilbert & Sullivan Operetta held at Ambassador Auditorium. Another student named Ruml looked just like the Ben Cross character. A third from England used historicism and British Israelism to create an Apocalyptic "legend" that defined all the symbols in the Book of Revelation. A fourth was persecuted while at the college for having a "different god, a different mountain top." He didn't believe in amateur "blind obedience" idolatry to men, and therefore had to "run them off their feat" in order to justify his professionalism. Other students also helped fulfill this role. But the parallels didn't stop with the student body. The faculty and administration had its share of fulfillments also. Herman Hoeh had the same slender, tall body type and jaw bone of the actor as well as the scholarly mind necessary in his "pursuit of excellence" to be "the best." Halford was an Englishman in spite of all temptations, and Kaplan a persecuted Jew. The church lawyer was "right to study law" and was "quite an advocate." These were all CONTEMPORANEOUS fulfillments, each being (C)HARMED by the "Satanic" "venom and jealousy" of the college -- a lying charm around each one's neck. Only time will tell the SUCCESSIVE fulfillments. Christ said "Ye shall know them by their fruits." "British" means "Covenant Man" in Hebrew. Covenant-keepers are those who obey the Bible.

Often the prophecies of the Bible have both a CONTEMPORANEOUS and SUCCESSIVE fulfillment. For instance, the three frogs of Rev. 16:13 are both CONTEMPORANEOUS and SUCCESSIVE, as are the four horns on the shaggy goat in Daniel 8. The abomination that desolates for 1260 days (Daniel 9:27 & 12:7) has had both CONTEMPORANEOUS and SUCCESSIVE fulfillments. The Book of Revelation itself had a CONTEMPORANEOUS fulfillment in the Roman-Jewish War of 67-73 A.D. known as Preterism as well as a SUCCESSIVE fulfillment known as Historicism.

If true Jewish-Christianity can be compared to an Olympic foot race (1 Cor. 9:24; Gal. 2:2; 5:7; Philip 2:16; 3:14; Heb. 12:1), then running must represent obedience to the Bible. These runners PRESERVE the truth from destruction by Roman Catholics and Moslems and parallel what happened in 1453 before the fall of Constantinople. They PRESERVE and PRINT the truth and BROADCAST the Moses-Elijah message of "Let my people go" (Ex. 5:1) and "How long will you straddle the fence between the Eternal and Baal?" (cp. 1 Ki. 18:21) to Roman Catholic and Moslem powers to win the GOLD medal (1 Cor. 3:12) and the BLUE ribbon (Nu. 15:38) for a Protestant Britain. We know these runners are doing the work of Elijah since they are labelled "Chariots of Fire" just as he was (2 Ki. 2:11-12). Therefore they may compose the cavalry that returns with our Lord. "For, behold, the Eternal will come with FIRE, and with his CHARIOTS like the whirlwind, to render his anger with fury, and his rebuke with flames of FIRE" (Isa. 66:15). But for those believers left behind, sports stadiums and colosseums in America, just as in ancient Rome, may become places of martyrdom for Christians in the near future. Therefore we should try to diligently imitate the work of Elijah. Orion carries the Olympic torch when the sun is directly over head. "Coincidentally," that is also when Auriga (the Charioteer) has the fiery chariot wheel under him (the sun). Ursa Minor (Little Flock) is alternately "three little maids" from school (the Hesperides). We believe there were many more than 100 parallels between this movie and reality. According to the laws of Probability, if each parallel has a one-in-five chance of occurring by accident (a very conservative estimate), then the odds against just TEN parallels happening by chance are 5X5X5X5X5X5X5X5X5X5 = 9,765,625 to 1.

Every chapter in the book of Revelation is based on astronomy. This vision is no different. Sam's son. Three little maids. Chariots of Fire. A metronome pendulum swinging from Scorpio's stinger. Gold and silver medals. Wings on heels. A torch aflame. A circular track for stars. We therefore find Auriga with the star Capella -- the Charioteer with his CHARIOT superimposed. Anciently, Leo, Ursa Major and Ursa Minor were all given the CHARIOT symbol as well. Astronomically, Perseus has wings on his heels. We should run from Babylon-America before the torch is aflame (Rev. 18:4) and race to WHITEHORSE Yukon and mount up on this WHITE HORSE to be part of Christ's cavalry. He will probably come back secretly for his bride on the Feast of Trumpets in 2017. The location (WHITEHORSE) and timing (Feast of TRUMPETS) for North American Christians is very important.


And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green:
And was the holy Lamb of God,
On England's pleasant pastures seen!

("A certain nobleman (Christ) went into a far country [Britain] to receive for himself a kingdom, and to return [to Palestine after 18 years -- age 12 to 30 -- Luke 2:42 & 3:23]. And he called his ten servants [lost ten tribes in Britain, etc.], and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. But his citizens [the Jews] hated him, and sent a message after him, saying, We will not have this man to reign over us" [Luke 19:12-14]. "Other sheep I have, which are not of this fold (not in Palestine) [John 10:16]." "I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel" [Matt. 15:24]. The Jews were not lost or hidden; but Israel was hidden, lost sheep.)

And did the Countenance Divine,
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?

("Dark Satanic Mills" are diploma-mill universities and churches where a doctrine of conformity overrules obedience to the Bible. "Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" -- Matt. 7:1-3)

Bring me my Bow of burning gold;
Bring me my Arrows of desire:
Bring me my Spear: O clouds unfold!
Bring me my Chariot of fire!

("Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire" -- Ps. 104:4. Any Bible-follower who teaches the truth of the Bible is a Chariot of Fire and type of Elijah-- 2 Kings 2:11 & 6:16–18)

I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
Till we have built Jerusalem,
In England's green & pleasant Land

(A Second Coming wherein our Lord establishes a New Jerusalem [Rev.3:12 & 21:2]).
