There are many religious philosophies that we are to be aware of because they contain empty deceit. It is after the traditions of man and after the basic principles of the world and not according to Christ. How often do we follow tradition? How many Traditions does your church have? And what is the Bible have to say about tradition?
The Roman Catholic Church, for example, relies heavily on Apostolic Authority coming from the Vatican City and the Pope. The New Apostolic Reformation in 2002 restored the apostolic office themselves. They were self-ordained much like David C Pack of the Restored Church of God made himself an apostle. In Revelation Jezebel ordained herself a prophetess. Maybe I can ordain myself as Superman? All this is ridiculous and pits Apostolic Authority against scripture. Judaism regards the Torah or the first five books of the Bible highly but not quite as high as the Talmud which is Jewish tradition. Tradition can be classified as a philosophy written by men. Whether you believe it or not the Bible was not written by men per se but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. Christadelphians and Bible students also follow their own traditions which supersedes the word of God and each Congregation of those bodies believe differently as there is no uniform Doctrine. Just like in the Book of Judges when everyone did what was right in their own eyes yes. I follow the word of God and place very little impetus on tradition.
I will conclude this series in part 3.
Evangelist Mike Bickle is wrong again. He looks for a massive Church Revival in the coming months. Here is part of a letter Bickle wrote. So what’s wrong with this letter? Again, it’s all part of Acts 29 the continuing hogwash.
Mike Bickel blames the church for the wrong emphasis. He has that part right but he doesn’t have the answer. The answer is found in the Bible.
Before the man of sin can be revealed, that being the Antichrist, the falling away has to happen first. Anyone that can’t see that happening right now is blind. The falling away has been happening for about 20 years now and will get worse not better. We are falling away from Jesus Christ and his teachings for that of Our Own. One of those teachings is Acts 29 which is not found in the Bible. The Restored Church of God like the Catholic Church believes in an Apostolic Authority. To be in that camp you had to be present when Christ was resurrected according to Acts 1:20-21. David Pack was fired from One Church for Spiritual abuse and then turns around at the Restored Church of God and anoints himself to be an apostle. Convenient. He later said that he was Elijah the prophet. The Roman Catholic Church believes in Apostolic succession as well. Each Pope however bring their own agenda to the table often times disagreeing with the agenda of former popes. God said, I am the Lord. I do not change. This is all part of the falling away which is happening to the church now. You have affirming churches affirming homosexuals and transgenders not to mention all the Cults. Acts 29 it’s supposed to be the continuation of the Bible but the Bible needs no continuation. The church will continue to fall away until the man of sin is revealed.
That event is yet future. I will have more on this series soon. Stay tuned.
I am interviewing David C Pack the self-appointed leader of the Restored Church of God. Thank you for having me here and my Ministry is based in Ohio. You might not know this but we are called the Buckeye state. Yes, I did know that. May I call you David? Heavens no, please call me by the title I was bestowed upon, that of apostle. May I ask who appointed you to that position? Why, myself of course. But apostle, wouldn’t that set a precedent for anyone to claim that they were an apostle or even prophet for that matter? For some I would say yes, but not for myself. According to the book of Acts an Apostle must have been present at the resurrection of Jesus Christ? Why does everyone have to quote the Bible? My congregation believes I am an apostle because I told them I was. In fact I am also Elijah the prophet. Apostle, this is starting to get a bit weird. Are you now declaring that you are the Prophet Elijah? Of course I am. Why does that surprise you? Well apostle, I am interviewing you in your multimillion-dollar estate which is not the brook Kidron? And I’m sure you’re not being fed by the Ravens? Again you’re relating to biblical information? Questions like that can confuse my congregation? If the Baltimore Ravens want to see me they most certainly can. Apostle, I was referring to the bird Raven not the Baltimore Ravens. Oh excuse me, Apostle’s at times make mistakes. In the Bible didn’t Jezebel once make herself into a prophetess? I must ask you sir do you have a fetish on the Bible for you’re always quoting it? You mean you don’t think an apostle should quote the Bible? I can answer that easily. Since I am a self-appointed apostle I can declare what I choose to declare because I’m Apostolic Authority. But apostle, you yourself gave you that Authority? How can we make sure that you are telling us the whole truth? Because I am an apostle and my authority must not be questioned in this church. All those that oppose me are asked to leave immediately. Apostle, you are sounding a little bit like Diotrphes who loved the preeminence. Those that disagreed with him he also kicked out of the church. Yes, I know what you mean and he is my idol of sorts. We are both Cut From the Same Cloth. Do you know what I think sir? I believe I asked you to call me apostle? I think I’d rather call you a heretic sir and I believe this interview is at an end. Only when I say it is over. Oh it’s over and I’m out of here so over and out you heretic. He will regret saying that to me as God will punish him severely. Imagine? Him challenging my authority as an apostle? What is the world coming to?
An astonishing and horrible thing has been committed in the land. The prophets prophesied falsely, the priests rule by their own power, and MY PEOPLE LOVE TO HAVE IT SO. But what will you do in the end? Jeremiah 5:30-31.
Most people that know Pastor Pack would say that his role model was Herbert W Armstrong. But that is only half right. His real role model is Diotrephes. Who is that you’re asking? You can find him in 3rd John 9 through 10. And he and Pastor Pack have a lot in common.They both love to have the preeminence or the desire to be first. Do you know who likes to be called your eminence? Pope Francis or any other Pope for that matter. Did you also know that Pastor Pack is a self-appointed apostle? For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into Apostles of Christ. 2nd Corinthians 11:13. Satan does the same thing and so do his ministers and you can find that in 2nd Corinthians 11 14 and 15. Jezebel was a self-appointed prophetess. Isn’t it wonderful to transform yourselves into whatever you want?
My name is David C Pack and I am the self-appointed apostle of the restored Church of God. I am grateful for this chance to State my record. I predicted in 2015 that the worldwide Church of God would be reinstated. Even though I said that would happen in 2015 I am still waiting on God to perform that prophecy. It’s not my fault. I also believe I’m like Elijah however I draw the line about Ravens feeding me at the Brooks Kidron. As I’ve said before, I’m a self-appointed apostle. I had to perform this myself because no one else would recognize me as such. No one in the church can question my authority. I also have three levels of tithing in my church because I like to keep up my lifestyle. It is said that I have a worldwide congregation. In actuality only 200 people attend my church in Ohio. There were more but the ingrates left because they didn’t like my style of teaching. I have to say that I don’t know the meaning of pride. Arrogance yes, but Pride no. I do like to preach long sermon even though the Bible says a fool is known by his many words. As an apostle I may have to remove those words. I just wanted to State my case before the people. If you disagree with my position, God will get you. Amen and may God bless you.
The restored Church of God has their worship services on the Sabbath, that being Saturday. They Follow Jewish law in that regard. They also follow the ten commandments and the dietary laws. But do they meet in the prescribed place of worship that being the synagogue? NO! Why not since that is the prescribed place of worship on the Sabbath? Do they honor the Torah in their ceremonies? The Torah was Central to their worship on the Sabbath? If they do they would line up well with the Messianic Jews. Why not just combine with them? The Restored Church of God is a works based Church. Galatians 5:4 says, he who attempts to be justified by law, he has fallen from Grace. Wow! How do they get around that verse? If righteousness came by the law then Christ died in vain. Wow! How do they handle that verse? These are good questions for the Restored Church of God. They largely follow the gospel of Peter to the circumcised or the Jewish people. They also believe they are the only true church on the planet Earth. That by itself marks them out as a cult. Do you know they have three levels of tithing? Do you know they cannot question the leader of their Church, David C Pack? Those that disagree with him are shown the back door. The punishment of the prophet Shall be the same as the punishment of the one who inquired. That is from Ezekiel 14:10. You can’t pick and choose what elements of the Sabbath you’re going to honor or dishonor. Amen.
How would you like to be like with Jewish people today complete with wearing their types of clothes? How would you like to emulate Rabbi Jonathan Cahn? Return to the hollow days of yesteryear, the Hebrew Roots movement Rides Again. I have a video for you today on this movement where you can learn how to be a Christian Jew. The Hebrew Roots movement sounds very similar to the Restored Church of God who also believe in the Old Testament Supremacy. They enjoy being in the old Covenant and have no respect or desire to follow the New Covenant. This is a very dangerous group and I would stay far from it.
Messianic Jews, the Hebrew Roots movement, and the restored Church of God all fall under this fable that the law coexists with Grace.Messianic Jews I hope I have spoken the truth in love.
