To WCG Leadership that wants to join the community of World Churches:
The answer is:
The World "will not" and indeed "cannot" receive the truth.

Furthermore:

To the WCG leadership: You shall not walk in darkness, like the rest of the World.

You shall "not" have an ideology of evil mixed with good = no pagan days

You are to say no to sin:
Sin is transgression of the law. 1 John 3:4 and
the law is "not" done away with. Rom 3:31 
because the whole universe is governed by laws both physical and spiritual.
 
Again for clarity: You are not to walk in dark pagan days:

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12

AND

You cannot join the community of World Churches because:

Is. 8:20, However, the world cannot receive the Spirit of truth -

John 14:17 - [Even] the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye (the disciples) know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

 Again:

To WCG Leadership that wants to join the community of World Churches
The World "will not" and indeed "cannot" receive the truth.
 
Again for clarity:
 
Those leaders of the WCG that try to say that the commandments are done away, especially the 4th ( the Sabbath Day):
 
 1 John 2:3-8
:3) And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
:4) He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments
is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
 
:5) But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
 
:6) He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
 
Jesus lived in obedience to God the Father's ways,
and Jesus did not invent new days of worship.
We are also to live in obedience to God the Father's way of the 1st Century.
Not from the 3rd Century when the Romans put in Sunday and Easter, nor are we to walk the way of the 8th Century when Christmas was put in.
  
Instead we are to follow "only" what was written and instructed by the Bible in the 1st Century:

1 John 2:7-11:

this is the word that we have heard from the beginning, I John 2:7

Therefore if we do not

tell you the word according to what is written, then we also have no light in us
and if we are of God we will hear him - the spirit of truth, I John 4:6.

To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, [it is] because [there is] no light in them.  Is.8:20

Gal 1:6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

:7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any (man) preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

= be accursed.

No right thinking individual would want to be anywhere near a WCG group of ministers that are cursed by God.

No right thinking individual would want to stay in a WCG organization that God will spew out, and  then God will make war with the WCG and turn the WCG over to Satan.

Rev.2.16  Repent then. If not, I will come to you soon and war against them with the sword of my mouth.
Rev.3.16 
So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth.
 
For those that stay in the WCG:
They "will" have to go through the tribulation where 90% of the earth's inhabitants will be killed.
The Great Multitude Rev 7:9
   9After this I looked and there before me was a great multitude that no one could count, from every nation, tribe, people and language, standing before the throne and in front of the Lamb. They were wearing white robes and were holding palm branches in their hands. 10And they cried out in a loud voice: “Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” 11All the angels were standing around the throne and around the elders and the four living creatures. They fell down on their faces before the throne and worshiped God, 12saying: “Amen! Praise and glory and wisdom and thanks and honor and power and strength be to our God for ever and ever. Amen!”

   13Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes–who are they, and where did they come from?”

   14I answered, “Sir, you know.”

          And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15Therefore, “they are before the throne of God
      and serve him day and night in his temple; and he who sits on the throne will spread his tent over them. 16Never again will they hunger;  never again will

they thirst.

The sun will not beat upon them,
      nor any scorching heat. 17For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd;
      he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes.”


Dear WCG members and offshoots with the exception of The Obedient Church of God:

This is sincere advice from an old friend. Click here to see this picture from better days.

Get out of the WCG and all the other splinter groups and into the "only" group The Obedient Church of God 1stcenturychristian.com that keeps "all" the commands of God, including the New Moon calendar, before you are spewed out into the Tribulation, and it is too late!


Mr. William F. Dankenbring, formerly a writer for the Plain Truth, and now an ex-associate of The Obedient Church of God has faithfully followed the Bible even before the fateful events of the 1974 break-up of the WCG.
He was fired from the Worldwide Church of God writing staff in 1974 for writing the truth over 30 years ago.
 
Now, 1974 was exactly 40 years since the 1934 creation of the Worldwide Church of God, and 1974 was the year of the greatest Apostasy of the Worldwide Church of God changing God's command not to divorce your bride or bridegroom.
God removed William F. Dankenbring so that he Mr. Dankenbring would not be part of the Apostasy.
 
Mr. William F. Dankenbring had more respect for the Bible than to alter 1 word or command of the Bible, and therefore God allowed him to be fired in 1974 because he would "only" write what was in the Bible.
 
Mr. Dankenbring "had" to start writing his own Booklets in 1974 when he was fired from the writing staff, and then in 1987 his own Sabbath Services (teaching "only" what is in the Bible), because he was excommunicated/disfellowshipped from the Worldwide Church of God directly by Mr. Tkach himself in 1987 "precisely" to the day= precisely 1 year after the death of Mr. Armstrong. N.B. One has one year of grieving.
 
The Obedient Church of God is now the "only" Christian Body teaching the Bible down to the last jot and tittle,
"without" 1 change from the Bible,
including not teaching any un-doctrinal matters that Mr. Armstrong wrongly taught even before 1974 such as Mr. Armstrong's following the Hillel II calendar (which causes God's Holy Days to be celebrated by 1 day to 1 month early or late).
If you wish to deny and state that you will "not" follow the Bible's instruction to sight the first crescent of the New Moon each month, you "cannot" be a Christian, because your are opposing the clear Bible instruction "to" sight the New Moon to determine the correct Holy Day times and seasons.
 
The Obedient Church of God follows the "Biblical instruction" to sight the New Moon from Jerusalem to determine God's correct Holy Day time period, which Mr. Armstrong did not, and which caused Mr. Armstrong to celebrate God's Holy Days 1 month to 1 day early or late=on the wrong days from way back in 1934, which is an obvious sin.
 
The good news is that God through His Spirit, is still revealing truth to us today. The "KEY" to being a Christian is to "KEEP" repenting all your life in order to be more like God.
God is sifting all of us, to see if we will have allegiance only to Him and not to any man or group.
 
This writer started out 1948-1981 in the Lutheran Church that his grandfather built and named Zion, and when this writer found out that Churches did not have all the Bible doctrines right, this writer had to
change to the WCG (Worldwide Church of God) 1981-1999,
change to the UCG (United Church of God) 2000-2002,
change to CGE (Church of God the Eternal) 2003-2006,
change to TPM (Triumph Prophetic Ministries) 2007-2008,
and the further test for this writer was to change to OCG (The Obedient Church of God) 2009.
 
I have been sifted and sifted and have run the race over every hurdle to go after the TRUE Doctrines of the Bible.
 
For those groups who still want to follow pre 1974 practices of H. A. (the W in HWA stands for nothing as it was added by Herbert Armstrong) and hold onto the "pre" 1974 practices of the WCG the deception to be aware of is:
 
"You" will be judged by every word of the Bible.
You will "NOT" be judged by every word or practice that H.A. instituted including H.A. practices from 1934-1974.
 
For those who say that God would not have set up His 1934 Church with errors, the answer is self evident:
The WCG since 1934 has used the Hillel II calendar and that Hillel II calendar is 1 month to 1 day late or early nearly all years.
 
No group including TPM has a right to change and throw things out of the Bible. and change the way of sighting the New Moons that God had given in the Bible 2000 years ago.
 
Doctrinal committees of the WCG since 1974 and indeed Herbert Armstrong since 1934, do "not" and indeed "cannot" invent or follow the 359 A.D. Hillel calendars and add/lock into 1934 doctrines,
because following calendars that are in error is in blatant opposition to the 1st Century doctrines and practices in the Bible. 
How can you be a Christian if you are opposing the Bible's instruction to site the New Moons.
You can "not" follow any group by rote. Isaiah 29:13
You "must" be a diligent worker comparing line on line and verse on verse.
 
Only God can set out Doctrine in the Bible.
 
Therefore you have to find a faithful messenger  who only follows the Bible, and only delivers the "original" 1st Century days and ways that are clearly pronounced/written/delineated/recorded in the Bible for all to see (if they have not hardened their heart).
 
The Obedient Church of God is the only Church of God= the "only" remnant body from the WCG that still follows the
Bible from 2000 years ago, and is the "only" body today that still practices and believes "all" the words of God's Bible, including the "command" to sight the New Moon, which means do "NOT" use man made Hebrew Rabbinical Jewish calendars that are off by 1 month to 1 day late or early.
 
We are only to follow the divine revealed words and instructions of the Bible, and "NOT" change God's Holy Days by following wrong calendars.
 
Regarding Mr. William F. Dankenbring's calling, it is very significant that he was fired in 1974 for his truthful writings, as his firing in 1974 was 40 years from the founding of WCG (Worldwide Church of God).
Forty is a "very" significant number in the Bible re Noah, Jesus fasting for 40 days, etc.
Mr. William  F. Dankenbring was fired from the writing staff of the WCG exactly 40 years after the creation of the WCG (Radio Church of God). The WCG had gone into the total "spiritual wilderness" as of 1974 ("not" the 1990's), and unfortunately many have been lost and have died in the spiritual wilderness (such as Garner Ted Armstrong).
Don't "you" let yourself die in the spiritual wilderness.
Come back home to the remnant body. 
A small voice cries out to you:
"Come back home to The Bible and eat only of the "true" unadulterated word of God, provided only by The Obedient Church of God".
Click here to start your return to God:
For you must "only" follow the 1 congregation  http://1stcenturychristian.com that "still" exactly follows Christ and walks as Christ Jesus walked. 

The demise & split up of the WCG was in 1972-1974, (not the 1990s)
when
"forty" ministers and
several thousands of members left
the WCG in 1974, and it was 1974 when Mr. William F. Dankenbring was fired from the WCG.
Full blown and ridiculous changes of Doctrine started occurring in 1974.
 
Since 1974 "many" are still being lost to die forever in broadening "Spiritual" Wilderness.
"Because" all WCG Ministers and offshoots have "forsaken" the truth,
and have led members "away" from the truth, with the exception of William F. Dankenbring.
Therefore now, not one Minister or member in the WCG or offshoot of the WCG (except The Obedient Church of God) keeps God's truth.
 
Instead all people in the WCG and its offshoots "now" follow Satan's satanic Days, or celebrate Holy Days on the wrong date.
All the people have moved back into spiritual Egypt of following their own ideas, or are wandering around lost in a Spiritual Wilderness. 
Because in this present day 1974-2014 Laodicean era,
all groups demonstrate by their actions (except The Obedient Church of God) that they are not of God.
 
The Bible states that all who do not follow "all" of the Bible are blind, ignorant, and dumb slumbering dogs resting on old HA doctrines.
They all follow the Hillel II 359 A.D. Calendar, instead of obeying God to sight the New Moons.

His watchmen are blind:

they are all ignorant,

they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber (Isaiah 56:10).

Do not be one of the blind, ignorant, dumb, and loving to slumber by not changing their way dogs.
 
We "must run the race and return to the 1st Century faith that was restored and no other. Mat 19:17; Rev 12:17, 14:12
Study to show yourself approved and come to the true Bible days and ways at 1stcenturychristian.com so that you do not
die in the
"spiritual wilderness". 

If you disobey God you will be under a curse, and because you and your ministers rejected the "knowledge" of the command to be keeping the Holy Days by the simplicity of the New Moon, I will reject you from being priest to Me= you will go into the Tribulation.
Hosea 4:6
