THE NAME

 

When we closely examine all of the groups that have gone out of the apostatizing Worldwide Church of God, the prophesied Church in Philadelphia era could none other be the New Jerusalem. It has the prophesied name besides all of the things God has given it already. It is keeping all of the commandments of God written in the Torah of Moses and many Jewish traditions and customs that is not man-made. That is something that has never been done by any of the Christian splinter groups from the Worldwide Church of God.

The members of the Worldwide Church of God during the days of the late Herbert W. Armstrong were already keeping many of the commandments of God written in the Holy Bible. But when it comes to the commandments, laws and ordinances about the Sabbath Day, the Worldwide Church of God members were unable to keep it properly for they were all instructed to become anti-Semitic and anti-Jewish like the rest of the Christian Churches on earth. Even though the Worldwide Church of God was observing many Jewish practices, Herbert W. Armstrong had raised the members of his Church as Christians, which is the reason why many of them today could not accept the true teachings of God written in the Torah of Moses.

We will never know closely and personally God unless we observe the Torah with all the things written on it. It is impossible for the members of the Church of the Laodiceans to inherit the Kingdom of God for most of them are naked and blind physically and spiritually.

Even though, the calling of the members of the Sabbath-keeping Church of God is very similar in the way God had chosen and used Cyrus the Great. The erstwhile members of the Sabbath-keeping Church of God were unable to grow spiritually for seventy years since its foundation by Herbert W. Armstrong.

Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus, whose right hand I have holden, to subdue nations before him; and I will loose the loins of kings, to open before him the two leaved gates; and the gates shall not be shut; I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel. For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. I am the LORD, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me” (Isaiah 45:1-5, KJV). 

Biblical history shows us that God had chosen Cyrus the Great to build His temple at the time when Cyrus had not even been born nor did he know God. The Jewish people in Persia had to point out and show Cyrus those prophecies in the Holy Scriptures about him when it became apparent that he was the prophesied Cyrus. Cyrus did not even know the existence of the God of Israel at that time and the bible prophecy where his name is mentioned.

In simple language, those biblical prophecies about the man named Cyrus came to pass before Cyrus the Great learned of them. God had made it known to Cyrus that he was chosen for some very important purpose. This is similar to what had happened to the members of the New Jerusalem Congregation and to many people that will become part of it later on.

God called us first into the Church organization that was doing the work on its respective era before we could really get to know Him, before we could become righteous and perfect in His eyes. That is what verses 4 to 5 is telling us about this prophetic Cyrus the Great. God has already given Cyrus a name before Cyrus knew God. God had already made Cyrus king, which is what being girded means, before Cyrus got to know God, that is before Cyrus was instructed by God in His way that he must set the Jews free so the temple of God can be built again.

The members of the New Jerusalem congregation have the same and similar calling. God is already working on them, purifying them through many trials and problems, making them perfect and righteous, before they could really get to know God and His Law.

During the Philadelphia era, the members of the Worldwide Church of God under the leadership of Herbert W. Armstrong had already been taught that they are the Philadelphians before God even revealed the Torah of Moses. The Torah of Moses has been designed by God for all the righteous people on earth. The wicked people on earth would not be able to embrace the Torah for they are evil and rebellious against God. Sadly, majority of the former members of the Worldwide Church of God during the Philadelphia era were wicked and rebellious against God. They were not really obedient to the true teachings of God written in the Holy Bible and their spiritual understanding is shallow.

Many days and months had passed by after a group from the Worldwide Church of God had taken a stand to fight for the righteousness of God before God gave them the true knowledge about the Torah.  The prophesied name of the remnant of the Church in Philadelphia had been given first. The prophesied Philadelphians are not converted and saved by the Torah in the beginning but save by their faithfulness to the teachings of Rabbi Yeshua. One of the teachings of Herbert W. Armstrong is to be baptized and sealed first so that the Holy Spirit can come upon the believers. It is the Holy Spirit that guide and lead us into the true knowledge of God and Yeshua HaMashiach.

Many members of the Worldwide Church of God had heeded the call for baptism when Herbert W. Armstrong was still alive.

It was enough then that we know the basic doctrines of the Church to help us in our repentance before baptism. We got ourselves baptized before we could really know and understand God through His Law. The Law is the light. The Law is the reflection of God. Yeshua is the light that enlightens us concerning the true knowledge of the Law of God. Many people on earth have been baptized only in the false name of the Son of God without understanding the importance of the knowledge of sin written in the Law of Moses. Their repentance has no value at all before the eyes of God for it is not based on the righteousness that comes from the observance of the Law.

“He who conquers, I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God; never shall he go out of it, and I will write on him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which comes down from my God out of heaven, and my own new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches'” (emphasis by the writer, Revelation 3:12-13, RSV). 

As what had happened, the name of ‘The New Jerusalem—Philadelphia Church of God and Jesus Christ’ was given first before Adonai Eloheinu revealed to the remnant of the Philadelphia what they have to do to become the true and prophesied Church in Philadelphia. They discovered and remembered the Law of Moses later on because they follow the true teachings of Rabbi Yeshua the anointed King of Israel. It is also revealed to them that the true Church of God is none other than the People of Israel that came out of the land of Egypt during Exodus time (Acts 7:38).

The New Jerusalem congregation is known today with the Hebrew name of Kahal Yerushalayim Hachadasha. It has a work online that is able to reach all the nations on earth. Anyone who feels like Jewish may join the New Jerusalem congregation in this end of time. The faith of the converts would decide if Rabbi Yeshua shall take him or her to the City of God in Eretz Yisrael.
