Key of David Update: Why Herbert Armstrong Met World Leaders

Gerald Flurry recorded a brand new episode of the Key of David program, which aired nationwide on October 16. Mr. Flurry explained why former Worldwide Church of God Pastor General Herbert W Armstrong travelled around the world meeting various heads of state—internationally recognized as an unofficial ambassador for world peace.

Over the course of his ministry in God’s Church, Mr. Armstrong met with over 300 world leaders—upon their invitation. While addressing them, he spoke forthrightly about many of the heartbreaking problems he saw in the nations he visited. But he always gave the nations hope; the inspiring solution of God’s Kingdom being set up on this Earth, which will solve all of mankind’s perils.

Mr. Armstrong possessed insight like no other man of his time because he didn’t speak from his own mind, but from the mind of God—through the truth revealed in the Bible. Before his death in 1986, he accurately prophesied of many world events that were to take place—and they have or are coming to pass today. Mr. Armstrong, however, never took any of the credit. Bible prophecy informed every one of his forecasts.

Today, Gerald Flurry continues the same work that Mr. Armstrong’s disloyal successors abandoned after his death. The Philadelphia Church of God has obtained the copyrights to all of Mr. Armstrong’s major works and offers them for free at no cost or obligation.

America’s Racial Violence

Gerald Flurry’s newest article “America Faces an Explosion of Racial Violence,” which will be featured in the September 2016 print edition of the Philadelphia Trumpet newsmagazine, addresses one of the country’s most urgent domestic problems.

In light of the most recent police assassinations in Dallas, Texas, and Baton Rouge, Louisiana, it is clear that the state of race relations in the United States is in steep decline. Gerald Flurry gives an in-depth analysis on the cause of the race-related woes plaguing the U.S. and what the Bible has to say about the sociopolitical state of America and the West today.

Mr. Flurry explains that much of the problem is actually being fueled by prominent political officials in our country—especially those in Washington. President Barack Obama himself has weighed in on several police shootings in recent years, which has incited more racial division and tension in the country.

The divisive narrative we hear against law enforcement in the media today is leading this country into a state of lawlessness that will only create more problems.

Gerald Flurry wrote, “To call somebody a racist is one of the ugliest accusations you can make in America today, and we should really be careful. To falsely accuse people of racism routinely is a serious problem!”

Since 1992, the Trumpet has been warning about the perils of racial violence that are prophesied to come to America and Britain for their rebellion against God’s law. But we’ve also been proclaiming the good news that these terrible events will soon come to an end when Jesus Christ returns to Earth to abolish all injustice and racism—permanently.

Be sure to read Gerald Flurry’s latest article for insight into a problem that you cannot afford to ignore.

Gerald Flurry Purchases Edstone Hall in England—Philadelphia Church of God

Gerald Flurry and the Philadelphia Church of God purchase Edstone Hall in England.

WARWICKSHIRE, ENGLAND—Philadelphia Church of God Pastor General Gerald Flurry flew to England on May 8, 2014 in search of a sister campus for the church’s headquarters campus in Edmond, Oklahoma. Efforts to acquire a campus in England began the previous year, when the church made an offer on a portion of the Bricket Wood estate, including its mansion, Hanstead House. This St. Albans estate is where the late Worldwide Church of God founder Herbert W. Armstrong established an Ambassador College campus. Mr. Flurry announced the offer in July 2013 during the pcg’s annual Philadelphia Youth Camp in Edmond.

The process proved to be slow-moving and fruitless over the next nine months, so Mr. Flurry decided to look for a campus elsewhere. During a visit to the United Kingdom in 2014, Mr. Flurry and his son visited six potential estates. They said all of the sites were impressive, but that only one stood out. On May 14, the pcg submitted an offer for a prestigious Warwickshire estate, which was quickly accepted. The purchase was finalized in early June.

Acquiring the keys to Edstone Hall wrapped up a two-year expedition for the new campus in England. From there, church officials prepared the estate for the upcoming Herbert W. Armstrong College academic year and for the church’s work in Europe. Contractors renovated the aging building. Local pcg members gathered on several occasions for work parties. Updates to Edstone Hall continue to this day, as United Kingdom/Europe regional office staffers and contractors update fixtures and appliances and install new flooring and walls.

Edstone now houses a television studio where presenter Stephen Flurry records Key of David programs broadcast to millions of homes throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. The work has grown significantly in England under Mr. Gerald Flurry’s direction and is making an impact in a worldwide way. As progress continues at a rapid pace, look for new projects and opportunities coming out of Great Britain.

The Ultimate Success Focus

Steve Jobs, considered by many to be the greatest CEO of all time, had a very peculiar, yet profound quality about him that enabled him achieve so much success. His ability to focus intensely helped him to make Apple one of the greatest (arguably the greatest) companies in all history.

Activist investor Carl Icahn has listed Apple as being worth $1.4 trillion today—this says a lot about the vision and focus Steve Jobs had when developing products and striving for perfection.
On this episode of the Key of David program titled “The Ultimate Success focus,” host Gerald Flurry spoke about Steve Job’s ability to intensely focus on his goals—the ultimate success focus. This is the same kind of focus that we must acquire in order to attain a spiritual prize greater than anything else on earth—greater than any physical possession, including $1.4 trillion.
Gerald Flurry explained that striving to develop a single-minded focus like Jobs’ had will change people’s lives in incredible ways. He said in the program, “We need to learn to focus if we’re going to succeed! That is essential, and it’s just really the pillar—foundational pillar—of success!”
So often the small minority of people reach real success. In fact, most don’t even know how to define what real success is, so there is no hope that they will be able to actually attain it. Herbert W. Armstrong, pastor general of the Worldwide Church of God, wrote the book “The Seven Laws of Success,” which has been distributed to millions of people over the decades explaining how to attain true success in your life. The majority of successful and wealthy throughout history have properly applied the first six laws, but the seventh law eluded them! This book, which Gerald Flurry offered in this program, will reveal these crucial six laws, but also the pivotal seventh—the spiritual dimension to real and lasting success.


Gerald Flurry on the Iran Nuclear Deal

Gerald Flurry spoke about the United States’ nuclear deal with Iran on the Key of David TV program, which aired on Sunday, January 31. He explained what the consequences of that deal will be—the lifting of strict economic sanctions occurring on January 16 of this year.

In his recent Philadelphia Trumpet article “The Worst Foreign-Policy Blunder in American History,” Mr. Flurry brought out that Iran, the number one terrorist-sponsoring nation on Earth, now has an added $100 billion dollars flowing into their economy to further their ambitions.

Iranian president, Hassan Rouhani, called the move a “glorious victory,” but it was a very one-sided victory—the United States and the West received nothing in return.

As a result, Iran now has a clear path to nuclear weapons due to this tragic decision in foreign policy.

Mr. Flurry wrote in the same article that, “The Iran deal contains bad news and good news. The bad news is that Iran is now capable of triggering World War iii (Daniel 11:40). The good news is that Jesus Christ will return to stop mankind from annihilating itself (Daniel 2:44).”

Gerald Flurry sheds light on why these world-shaking events, such as the Iran nuclear deal, are taking place, and more importantly on the incredible hope that lies ahead of this current state of peril.

Philadelphia Church of God Ministerial Conference 2015

The Herbert W. Armstrong College campus welcomed 59 ministers from 10 countries and 14 American states for five days of practical instruction during the 17th Philadelphia Church of God ministerial conference. The conference lasted from December 30 until January 5.

Gerald Flurry and 11 other of these men gave 18 lectures totaling 33 hours and 45 minutes of exciting instruction. All of the lectures were given from the stage of the elegant Armstrong Auditorium located on the college campus in North, Edmond. Mr. Flurry, pastor general, gave four conference messages, two of which were recorded for all PCG members to listen to.

College students were able to serve during the conference in setting up the various amenities that were offered to the ministry throughout the duration of the conference. Students also helped serve on a wait-staff, serving the PCG ministry food throughout the conference, including a formal dinner hosted for all Church employees to attend as well.

Ministers were also able to watch the Herbert W. Armstrong College music department’s recital from the same stage of Armstrong Auditorium. Students showcased their talent and progress they have made over the past semester. The college has a very advanced music program with very skilled instructors who have performed in professional concert series. Local concert goers in Edmond also came to watch the event.

For the few and scattered ministers, the ministerial conference is an opportunity to build more unity with their fellow travelers. Philadelphia Church of God members were admonished to pray for the weather, good health for the ministers, and a strong conference theme centered around Gerald Flurry’s messages and bolstered by every speaker. Comments about the success of the conference were mentioned from all who attended and worked the event.

Gerald Flurry Speaks About King Hezekiah

Gerald Flurry spotlights one of the most incredible discoveries made in archaeological history on this week’s episode of the Key of David. This recent discovery of the official royal seal of King Hezekiah proves the authority of the Bible, and, equally as important, shows us the incredible lesson we can learn from this former king of Judah.

Dr. Eilat Mazar has unearthed a new discovery from her latest archaeological excavation in Jerusalem: the bulla (an official seal or stamp) of King Hezekiah of Judah. The clay seal stamped with Hezekiah’s name was found in the royal quarter of the Ophel and marks Mazar’s newest biblically related find. Mazar’s archaeological team discovered the private seal of the king during a recent phase of excavations by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The inscription on the bulla reads: “Belonging to Hezekiah [son of] Ahaz, King of Judah.”

The Armstrong International Cultural Foundation, chaired by Gerald Flurry, has been a large supporter of Dr. Mazar and her excavation projects. Herbert W. Armstrong College has sent numerous students to Jerusalem in the past to participate in her archaeological excavations.

Mazar’s other discoveries in Jerusalem include King David’s palace, Nehemiah’s wall, bullae belonging to princes who persecuted the Prophet Jeremiah, a Davidic-era secret tunnel, and a Solomonic-era wall. She plans to publish Volume 1 of her final report on her recent Ophel excavations later this month.

Gerald Flurry shows that the Bible records that Hezekiah, son of Ahaz, ruled the kingdom of Judah from its capital, Jerusalem, 14 generations after King David during a major military conflict with Assyria. 2 Kings 18:5 notes his historical significance by recording: “[A]fter him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor any that were before him.”

Secular sources corroborate the unbelievable story of King Hezekiah. Hezekiah’s reign is also one of the best documented pieces of history cited by non-biblical sources such as in the chronicles of the Assyrian kings Sargon II and Sennacherib. Rarely have science and the Bible so dramatically converged—this time proving that King Hezekiah is far more than an ancient legend. His story is proof that God will perform powerful miracles for anyone who trusts Him.
