Testimony of My Fall & Restoration



     Whether one has religious or agnostic convictions, the knowledge of history is imperative for our learning. It addresses where we are in both time and character, and the destiny of a fundamentally immoral civilization. Religious men have demanded of GOD for many things for both virtuous endeavors and self-serving ambitions. But the Bible teaches that there is only in one area where GOD calls us to demand and even command Him:


“Thus saith the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me.” Isa.45:11.


     This is the one verse in the Bible when GOD calls us to actually command Him. For GOD to give this appeal for us to command Him, the High and Lofty One to show us the future events of world history shows that it must be of great importance for our character and our salvation.


     These words of the LORD specifically address the Bible's revelations of prophecy; that we know what is to come before it comes. And those who stand as GOD’S faithful stewards are called to unite the prophetic gift with the Gospel of Christ, that as things unfold, the Gospel message, united with people’s witnessing the fulfillment of prophecy, will establish and fortify faith in the promises of GOD for our salvation from the curse of sin and its consequence of death.


     In fact the entire foundation of the story of our redemption is predicated on in the Bible's prophetic forecasting of future events and their fulfillment, "that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe." Jn.14:29. Bible prophecy is the “near kinsman” of our faith in Jesus Christ. Said the Apostle Peter: “That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: Receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls. Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.” I Pet.1:7-12.

     The conclusion over the final contest between the true and false expectations in the church is found in Revelation 16:13-16:

“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of [and speak through] the mouth of the dragon [Satan], and out of the mouth of the beast [the Roman Catholic church], and out of the mouth of the false prophet [Apostate Protestant churches]. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon [the last battle of the unrepentant church against the saints “that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.” Rev.14:12.

     The Bible teaches that our “Father in heaven” has known all along every step of man’s wise and foolish decisions throughout history, and “the LORD” has intervened at specific times to bring about His purposes to bless and redeem the life He created “In the beginning.” His Word emphatically declares this: “Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure: Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it. Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness: I bring near my righteousness: it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry.” Isa.46:9-13.

     The very first prophecy in the Bible was given by GOD to Satan in the hearing of Adam and Eve (Gen.3:15): that those who cling to sin would “perish” with Satan while those who stand under the “seed” of Eve [Jesus Christ] would “live forever.” The first prophet of the LORD was Noah, when for 120 years he prophesied the global flood that would drown every unrepentant man and woman who continued their crimes against the dignity of life. And then came Moses and his prayer: “would God that all the LORD'S people were prophets, and that the LORD would put his spirit upon them!” Nu.11:29. The LORD’S prophets have even been established among the heathen, as with the prophet Baalim who prophesied the precious blessings of the LORD upon Israel, and most importantly, prophesied of the coming of Jesus Christ:

“And he took up his parable, and said, Balaam the son of Beor hath said, and the man whose eyes are open hath said: He hath said, which heard the words of God, and knew the knowledge of the most High, which saw the vision of the Almighty, falling into a trance, but having his eyes open: I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.” Nu.24:15-17.

     This was the prophecy that led the wise men of the east to come to Bethlehem “Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.” Matt.2:2.

     Then the LORD raised up Samuel, the last of the judges before the kings of Israel: “And Samuel grew, and the LORD was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground. And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD. And the LORD appeared again in Shiloh: for the LORD revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the LORD.” I Sam.3:19-21.

     The gift of prophecy has been the close companion of the Gospel all along! And because prophetic insight is so important to GOD (for the safety of His children), Satan has spent untold energies working against it using every miracle at his disposal to deceive rulers, nations, and eventually the whole world (Rev.13:14). False prophets have always outnumbered the true from 400 to 450 false prophets against the LORD’S one true prophet. The great courage of Elijah, Micaiah, and Jeremiah stood as the ensigns of the LORD amidst a corrupt and unrepentant people. And all their lessons are for our edification.

     It is based on Satan corrupting everything that is “holy, and just, and good” that we need to see where we are today, and where the course of civilization is tending. As no tyrant ever willingly steps down from their power, so Satan will never yield to his defeat (Rev.20:7-15). He is now ready and able to unleash his last hurrah! He merely waits for GOD to command the four angels who hold the winds of strife to let go their hold. This begs the question: Does the rivalry between the Catholic and Protestant churces still exist? Are the Protestants today of the same convictions as the Protestants of old? In the early 20th century Alonzo T. Jones provides the best answer. His fame is well known among Protestants who have always stood for the liberties of America’s founders and the Constitution they penned into law. In the year 1888, A.T. Jones single handedly stayed the hand of full-blown religious tyranny in America when he debated before congress the danger of the “Blair Bill” that included the enforcement of a national Sunday law on every American citizen. To impose an institution of the church into federal law was a direct violation of the first amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Ever since this bill was defeated, men have continually worked to overrule the first amendment to establish a tradition of Rome that has no sanction from Christ or His Apostles.

     It needs to be understood that the liberties established by our founders have always been and will forever be anathema to Rome. Their own decrees leading up to and through the 20th century repeatedly affirm this. But there is one historical fact that all should consider: Without the great Reformers and their sacrifice, none to this day would have the legal right to own a Bible. Did you hear that? The decree of the “Infallible Church” would have sustained the decree of Pope Gregory IX in the year 1229 forbidding the Bible to the common man, even to this very day. We must never forget: the papacy did not willingly step down from her throne of religious tyranny: it had to be forcibly removed by the shedding of the blood of hundreds of thousands of men. Every devout Catholic today owes their right to even own a Bible to the fifty million men, women and children who perished at the hands of the civil rulers under the thumb of the papal priesthood, who acted as puppeteers over the civil leaders.

     This antichrist dogma of those masquerading as Christian has led to the most heinous crimes against humanity. Holy angels have recorded in the books of heaven things that would make you vomit with disdain! Only in the Judgment will these hidden crimes come to light (I Cor.4:5). For 1,260 years (as prophesied seven times in Scripture) the persecution of “heretics” was the special work of papal Rome. This history and Reformation theology is all but forgotten. Even the plain words of Christ forecasting the coming tyranny have been overruled today: “Yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.” Jn.16:2,3.

     Although apologies have come through men such as Pope John Paul II, the same doctrines that led them to embrace the spirit of tyranny haven’t changed; and should civil authority be relinquished to the Vatican once more the resurrection of persecution is guaranteed. Abraham Lincoln well understood this when he spoke to Father Charles Chiniquy shortly before his assassination by the Jesuits:

“I am for liberty of conscience in its noblest, broadest, highest sense. But I cannot give liberty of conscience to the pope and to his followers, the papists, so long as they tell me, through all their councils, theologians, and canon laws, that their conscience orders them to burn my wife, strangle my children, and cut my throat when they find their opportunity! This does not seem to be understood by the people today. But sooner or later, the light of common sense will make it clear to every one that no liberty of conscience can be granted to men who are sworn to obey a pope, who pretends to have the right to put to death those who differ from him in religion.”—Fifty Years In The Church of Rome by Charles Chiniquy, pages 300-303.

     And Bible prophecy says this is precisely what will happen when apostate Protestants in America under Jesuit influence spearhead the final display of religious tyranny, ultimately handing all authority to the pope of Rome; for the laws of Rome to this day supersede the Commandments of Christ, and the whole world is uniting with Rome against them. Today’s Christian church is soon to take up the same banner that we see in tyrannical Islam whose fierce spirit is identical to the cruel and demonic spirit ruling in all Ages.

“And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.” Matt.15:14

     In spite of our freedom to “search the Scriptures,” Bible illiteracy is the norm throughout the Christian world. In the midst of this ignorance the congregations are told: “Trust us on this!” “You can take our word for it!” declare our religious leaders. “I place my salvation in your hands,” say the sheep to the shepherd. The most dangerous direction for one’s life is to forfeit their personal responsibility before GOD, entrusting into the hands of another the very salvation of their souls. GOD calls every man and woman to harness His Truth on their own that they may know and believe the words of Christ for themselves. So many spilled their blood for our freedom to merely own a Bible! And yet, the average Christian’s illiteracy of the Bible mocks at those who sacrificed their very lives for our basic freedoms of conscience, which includes the liberty to read GOD’S Word. Even the United States of America would never have come to pass had the Waldensian church abandoned their entrusted mission to ignite the Reformation. Of these faithful souls the prophecy reads: “And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days.” Dan.11:33. They were starved to death in prison, tortured, burned at the stake, beheaded, slain with the sword, even sent out naked in the middle of the night during a freezing blizzard. Of this persecuted class of Christians Christ will say to the religious and civil leaders who caused these abominations against life: “Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” Matt.25:40.

     Even after our forefathers established America and the foundation of our constitutional freedoms, Pope Gregory XVI had this to say of the freedom America provided to its citizens: “Liberty is madness, and any work advocating freedom of religion, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly or freedom of eduction is a filthy sewer full of heretical vomit.”—Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari vos, 1832. People have no concept of the arrogant ignorance that both Catholicism and today’s Protestantism promotes and how this ignorance (although shrouded behind a façade of intellect and piety) threatens the salvation of all people under their guidance. Bible prophecy declares the most dangerous men to be today’s religious leaders for they poison the minds of men with principles that GOD abhors, because these Unbiblical “doctrines of men” lead to the darkness of death not to the Light of life (Col.2:22; Matt.8:12).

     War after war after war, all for the supremacy, Rome to this day has set out to destroy every vestige of Protestantism through her secret police, the Jesuit Order. Everything from the Catholic led Spanish Armada sent to destroy Protestant England to Pope Pius IX condemning President Abraham Lincoln and every liberty of America’s Constitution, Rome has chosen the wrong side of justice while shrouding their evils behind the noble Catholics who live up to the light of their understanding of “Jesus Christ and him crucified.”

     Our loving GOD warns us in the Scriptures that this same arrogant spirit of tyranny is alive and well today and will rise to power in the United States of America; and from here be carried to all the world, that the Scriptures might be fulfilled, “and all the world wondered after the beast [the Vatican]. And they worshipped the dragon [Satan] which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him [when he professes loving service to GOD and Jesus Christ]? ...And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.” Rev.13:3,4,8. This “beast” of Revelation 13:1-10 is the same “beast” of Daniel 7:19, which the Bible identifies as the last ruling power on earth before the coming of the LORD: the Vatican of Rome. There is no mistaking the chronology of Bible prophecy with the flow of earth’s kingdoms through history, from Babylon to the 2nd Advent of Jesus Christ.

     Multitudes worship their church in place of the worship of GOD. This is among the great sins of Christians today; for the worship of one’s church is a transgression of the 1st Commandment: “Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” Ex.20:3. Men by the millions only worship their religion, not the GOD of true religion (Ja.1:27). For if they worshipped GOD, Bible prophecy would have defined a very different outcome for our future than the one that is pending for us in our generation. So, to augment the reality of the danger we face in our generation let us review a profound and most wise recitation of A.T. Jones entitled: “Are There Any Protestants?” from January 14, 1913:

“In Chicago, Ill., December 5, 1912, an assembly of three hundred and nineteen clerical delegates from thirty professedly Protestant denominations intentionally and expressly repudiated the word "Protestant." That is an occurrence of such importance as to demand the serious attention of all: especially all the people of the United States. It is my purpose tonight to make as plain as possible both the fact and the meaning of it. The meeting by which this thing was done was the "Second Quadrennial Meeting of the Federal Council of the Churches of Christ in America" which was held in the Hotel LaSalle, Chicago, Ill., December 4-9, 1912. This "Federal Council" is composed of thirty or more denominations, having a total membership of "more than seventeen millions." It was originally organized by five hundred delegates from twenty denominations, who met for the purpose in Carnegie Hall, New York City, November 15-21, 1905.

“In its original organization this "Federal Council of Churches" was expressly and distinctly Protestant. In the call under which the convention met in New York City the object of the proposed meeting was distinctly stated to be "to secure an effective organization of the various Protestant communions of this country"; and "to form a bond of union that will enable Protestant to present a solid front," etc. And now without any pressure from without, and without any issue or crisis to demand it, but spontaneously and voluntarily that professedly Protestant organization openly and expressly repudiates the word "Protestant"! And this occurred in the very first business meeting of the Council, and in dealing with the very first "Report" that was made to the Council: that is, at the first possible opportunity. The occasion of it was this: The "Executive Committee" presented its report. In that report the committee expressed the "earnest hope that the Second Federal Council will make yet more clear certain fundamental facts as to the churches of the country, through their federation." And the first of these was "The fact of the substantial unity of the Christian and Protestant Churches of the nation." No sooner was opened the discussion of the report, than that word "Protestant" was challenged as if it were a mortal enemy. "Why emphasize a word that is not a uniting but a dividing word? a word that recalls a most unhappy and trying experience," said one. "By using this word, you make it more difficult for many of your Christian brethren to work with you," said another. Discussion was soon cut off by a motion to resubmit the report to the committee for revision eliminating the word "Protestant." And this was so done as to express the "earnest hope" for the "fellowship of Catholic unity." Then the report was promptly and unanimously adopted, and with applause.


“Now what is the meaning of such a transaction as that? What is the meaning of the word "Protestant"? How came it into the world? How came these people to bear it as a religious distinction? And since it should now be repudiated, was their bearing of it a mistake from the beginning? And if not a mistake from the beginning, and in the beginning, then when did it become such a mistake that it should be so incontinently repudiated? The word "Protestant" as expressing a religious distinction, the word "Protestant" with a capital P, the word "Protestant" as dealt with by the Chicago Council of the Federated Churches, came into the world with the word "Protest" that was used in the Protest that was made at the Diet of Spires in Germany, April 19, 1529. That Protest was made against the arbitrary, unjust, and persecuting, procedure of the papacy in that Diet. This procedure in the Diet of Spires of 1529, swept away the religious liberty agreed upon and established in the Diet of Spires of 1526. This religious liberty guaranteed by the Diet of Spires of 1526, was the result of a deadlock in that Diet over the enforcement, by all the power of the then papacy, of the Edict of Worms that had been issued in 1521 commanding the destruction of Martin Luther, his adherents, his writings and all who printed or circulated his writings, or who on their own part should print or circulate the like.

“Thus it will be seen that the Protest in which originated the word "Protestant" was against the effort of the papacy to destroy the Reformation, and was in behalf of the Reformation and its principles. And now for anybody to repudiate the word "Protestant," is to repudiate the Protest. To repudiate the Protest, is to repudiate as unworthy the cause in behalf of which the Protest was made. And that cause was the Reformation. Therefore, to repudiate the word "Protestant" is nothing less and nothing else than to repudiate the Reformation. And the Federal Council of Churches at Chicago, December 5, 1912, did unanimously repudiate the word "Protestant."


“And that all may see for themselves that just such is unquestionably the meaning of that action taken, let us consider directly the facts, documents, and dates, in which rests the unquestionable truth of the case. In 1521 the Diet of Worms condemned Luther and the Reformation. There immediately followed, the "Edict of Worms" that is the key to the Protest in which originated the word "Protestant." This Edict was issued by the Emperor Charles V. "the ablest and most powerful monarch of the sixteenth century." After denouncing Luther personally in sweeping terms, the imperial edict says:

‘"We have therefore sent this Luther from before our face, that all pious and sensible men may regard him as a fool, or a man possessed of the devil; and we expect that after the expiry of his safe-conduct, effectual means will be taken to arrest his furious rage. Wherefore, under pain of incurring the punishment due to the crime of treason, we forbid you to lodge the said Luther as soon as the fatal term shall be expired, to conceal him, give him meat or drink, and lend him, by word or deed, publicly or secretly, any kind of assistance. We enjoin you, moreover, to seize him, or cause him to be seized, wherever you find him, and bring him to us without any delay, or to keep him in all safety until you hear from us how you are to act with regard to him, and till you receive the recompense due to your exertions in so holy a work. As to his writings, if the best food becomes the terror of all mankind as soon as a drop of poison is mixed with it, how much more ought these books, which contain a deadly poison to the soul, to be not only rejected, but also annihilated! You will therefore burn them, or in some other way destroy them entirely. As to authors, poets, printers, painters, sellers or buyers of placards, writings or paintings, against the pope or the church, you will lay hold of their persons and their goods, and treat them according to your good pleasure. And if any one, whatever be his dignity, shall dare to act in contradiction to the decree of our imperial majesty, we ordain that he shall be placed under the ban of the empire. Let every one conform hereto."’

“And that the emperor meant every word of that edict, and that it should be enforced in full of all that it said, is made plain in the following sentences which he wrote with his own hand:

‘"Sprung from the Christian emperors of Germany, from the Catholic kings of Spain, the archduke of Austria, and the dukes of Burgundy, who are all illustrious as defenders of the Roman faith, it is my firm purpose to follow the example of my ancestors. A single monk, led astray by his own folly, sets himself up in opposition to the faith of Christendom! I will sacrifice my dominions, my power, my friends, my treasure, my blood, my mind, and my life, to stay this impiety."’

“There was practically a universal league of all the Catholic States under the direction of the emperor and the Pope to enforce everywhere the Edict of Worms. This of necessity caused that the Princes who had received the Gospel should form an alliance mutually to support each other against the enforcement of the Edict of Worms in their dominions; and to give free course to the Gospel there. The document which these evangelical Princes signed reads as follows:

‘"God Almighty having, in His ineffable mercy caused His holy and eternal Word, the food of our souls and our greatest treasure here below, to appear again amongst men; and powerful manoeuvres having been employed on the part of the clergy and their adherents to annihilate and extirpate it; we being firmly assured that He who has sent it to glorify His name upon the earth is able to maintain it, engage to preserve this holy Word to our people: and for this end to employ our goods, our lives, our States, our subjects, all that we possess—confiding not in our armies, but solely in the omnipotence of the Lord, whose instruments we desire to be."


“There were eleven powerful princes who signed this document. This step effectually suspended the enforcement of the Edict of Worms; and thus matters stood at the assembling of the Diet of Spires, June 25, 1526. The emperor's instruction to the Diet ordered that "the church-customs should be maintained entire"; and called upon the Diet to "punish those who refused to carry out the Edict of Worms." Against the emperor's instructions the evangelical Princes stood firmly for the Reformation; and their calm firmness encouraged the Princes who were willing to be neutral, to oppose the enforcement of the Edict of Worms in their States.

“August 1, a general committee of the Diet reported the necessity of a reform of church abuses. No such thing as this was wanted by the papacy, and to counteract the report the church party brought forth a decree of the emperor commanding the enforcement of the Edict of Worms. The evangelical Princes broke the force of this move by citing the facts that this decree had been issued away back in the month of March, four months before this present Diet had met; that since that time the emperor and the pope had fallen out and were now at war; and that in this time the emperor had written to his brother saying, "Let us suspend the Edict of Worms." This brought the Diet of Worms." This brought the Diet to a deadlock; and the way out was an agreement that there should be religious liberty: "Let every man do as he thins fit, until a national free council shall be convoked: within a year"—from August 17, the date of the agreement. The expected council was not called within the year suggested, nor at all. This allowed the religious liberty established by the Diet to prevail with no check or limitation.

“The Second Diet of Spires met February 21, 1529. By this time the emperor and the pope were at one again, and unitedly were determined to destroy the Reformation; by sanction of the vote of the Diet if possible; and failing this, then by all the power of the empire. Accordingly in the Diet, March 15, the imperial commissioners announced that the emperor "by virtue of his supreme power" had annulled the resolution of religious liberty adopted by the Diet of Spires, August 17, 1526. This action of the emperor was wholly arbitrary. But as it was a part of the settled program, the papal party proceeded as if it were fully and formally legal; and the resolution of religious liberty being thus out of the way, they now demanded that the Diet order the full enforcement of the Edict of Worms. The evangelical Princes insisted on the maintenance of the resolution of religious liberty, of the Diet of 1526. In this they were wholly in the right, as well as wholly within their rights. For this was a decision of the Diet, regularly made; while the emperor's annulment of it was wholly irregular and arbitrary.


“April 7, 1529, the papal party secured a majority vote in the Diet for a resolution providing that: In all places where the Edict of Worms could not be enforced, there should be no new reform; the reformers should not touch any controverted point; they should not oppose any celebration of the mass; they should not permit any Catholic to embrace the doctrines of Luther; they should acknowledge the episcopal jurisdiction of the Catholic church; and should not tolerate any Anabaptists nor any Sacramentarians. This on its face was a proposal for the positive smothering of the Reformation; for it stopped every activity of the reformers, and gave full scope to every activity of the Catholics. The evangelical Princes contended that "This Diet is incompetent to do more than to preserve the religious liberty agreed upon in the former Diet, until the council shall meet according to the original agreement. Therefore we reject this decree. We reject it also because, in matters of faith the majority have no power." The evangelicals were then ordered to submit to the majority. They retired, according to custom, to deliberate. In their absence the imperial commissioners adjourned the meeting, declaring, "All is over. It is a settled affair. Submission is all that remains." When the evangelicals returned from their deliberation, to present their answer, and found the meeting adjourned, and the whole matter decided against them, and all in their absence, then, from this arbitrary and unjust course, those true Princes decided to "appeal to the Word of God, and from the Emperor Charles V to Jesus Christ the King of kings and Lord of lords." And the statement of this appeal formed the Protest that put the word "Protestant" in the world, and gave to the Reformation the name and title of Protestant.

“They said that they could not consent to the action and course of the majority in the Diet, "because it concerns the glory of God and the salvation of our souls, and that in such matters we ought to have regard, above all, to the commandment of God, who is King of kings and Lord of lords; each of us rendering Him account for himself, without caring the least in the world about majority or minority." Also they said, "What! we ratify this edict! We assert that when Almighty God calls a man cannot, however, receive the knowledge of God! . . . For this reason we reject the yoke that is imposed upon us. Moreover, the new edict declaring the ministers shall preach the Gospel, explaining it according to the writings accepted by the holy Christian church; we think that, for this regulation to have any value, we should first agree on what is meant by the true and holy church. Now, seeing that there is great diversity of opinion in this respect; that there is no sure doctrine but such as is conformable to the word of God; we are resolved, with the grace of God, to maintain the pure and exclusive preaching of His holy word, such as it is contained in the biblical books of the old and new testament, without adding anything thereto that may be contrary to it.

“This Word is the only truth; it is the sure rule of all doctrine, and of all life, and can never fail or deceive us. He who builds on this foundation shall stand against all the human vanities that are set up against it shall fall before the face of God. For these reasons, most dear lords, uncles, cousins, and friends, we earnestly entreat you to weigh carefully our grievances and our motives. If you do not yield to our request we PROTEST by these presents, before God, our only Creator, Preserver, Redeemer, and Savior, and who will one day be our Judge, as well as before all men and all creatures that we, for us and for our people, neither consent nor adhere in any manner whatsoever to the proposed decree, in anything that is contrary to God, to His holy word, to our right conscience, to the salvation of our souls, and to the last decree of Spires."

“Thus, in the presence of the Diet, "spoke out those courageous men whom Christendom will henceforth denominate 'the Protestants.' And that is the origin of the word "Protestant." That is the true story of the word "Protestant," as dealt with and repudiated by the federal councils of churches, thirty denominations, "a membership of more than seventeen millions.


“And now in fact and in truth what does this word "Protestant" mean? By the open evidence of the plain story—It means protest against the burning or otherwise destroying of either the men or the writings of the men who are found to disagree in religion or faith with other men either in a church or a state. It means protest against arbitrary and unjust procedure of eccelesiastical [sic.] combines. It means protest against any denunciation or condemnation of men in their absence, and without their being heard. It means protest against any alliance or connection whatever between the ecclesiastical and the civil power. It means protest against any assertion or claim of any power or right of any majority in matters of religion or faith. It means protest against any intrusion whatever of the civil power, under whatever plea, in any matter that in any way partakes of religion or faith. It means protest against all arbitrary authority of the church under whatever form, name or claim. In this it means protest against any exercise of ecclesiastical authority or power in any other wise than only by the ministry of the word of God. It means protest against any restriction whatever, or any kind, on the full preaching of the word of God, even on "controverted points," to every creature everywhere and always. It means protest against any restriction whatever, of any kind, on the full and free exercise and enjoyment of the right of any individual at any time to embrace any doctrine that he may choose to believe. It proclaims and defends the full and complete liberty of every individual, himself alone. In this it proclaims and defends the perfect individuality of every soul. And in this it proclaims and defends the sole and complete responsibility of the individual soul to God only, in all things pertaining to religion or faith. It rests in an proclaims the word of God alone, as in the Bible of the Old and New Testaments as all-sufficient in all things pertaining to religion and faith. That, all of that, and nothing less than that, in truth and in fact, is what the word "Protestant" means. And that is what the Federal Council of churches repudiated when it repudiated the word "Protestant."


“And just here is where comes in most forcibly the special importance of this repudiation, to every person in the United States. In the light of the truth of what the word "Protestant" means, it is clearly seen that the principle of religious liberty in the separation of religion and the state in the United States by the National Constitution is the fullest and truest expression of the Protestant principle that there is in any organic connection in the world. This is explained in the fact that it was expressly declared in so many words by Washington, Jefferson, and Madison, and their noble compatriots in the making of this nation, that it was "upon the principles on which the Gospel was first propagated and the Reformation from popery carried on" that they established this religious liberty as a supreme right guaranteed by the National Constitution. And the repudiation of the word "Protestant" by that Federal Council of churches in the United States means equally the repudiation of this religious liberty in the United States, which is the direct and plainly declared result of the Protest from which comes the word "Protestant." It is forever true, as stated by the great historian of the reformation that "It was this noble resolution [of the Protest] that gained for modern times liberty of thought and independence of faith." And people who are capable of repudiating the Protest, are already qualified to abandon all the results of it.


“Indeed, this is already apparent. It is the truth that all that was really new about their repudiation of the word "Protestant", was only in the open and express doing of it. As far back as December 1908, in the first meeting of the council as such, the "right of private judgment," that was emphasized, and the "individuality" that was developed, by "the Protestant Reformation," was specifically thrown over as that which should "no longer blind the minds of believers" to "the need of combination" and of "mutuality in service." And in the public announcement of the date and place of holding this council in Chicago, it was plainly stated that this "United Protestantism is not to be construed as a demonstration against the Roman Catholic church." This latter statement was confirmed in another act of the Chicago council. The council unanimously adopted a report in which it is distinctly declared that the church is justified "in turning to the State for a o-operation [sic.] which will enable her to do her sacred task." This is exactly paralled [sic.] to the instruction given by Leo XIII in his encyclical of January 6, 1895, to the hierarchy in America, saying that here the Catholic church "would bring forth more abundant fruits, if, in addition to liberty, she enjoyed the favor of the laws and the patronage of public authority."


“Such parallels could be extended indefinitely, and all would go only the more to show that the repudiation of the word "Protestant" by the Federal Council of churches in the United States, was but the mouth speaking out of the already over-welling abundance of the heart. It now remains to be seen whether the "more than seventeen millions" of the membership of these churches that are claimed to be represented in the vote of the 319 delegates, were really represented in that vote repudiating the word "Protestant." Is all these were really represented in that action, then it will be a wonderful satisfaction and encouragement to Rome in her purpose concerning this nation to know that here are "more than seventeen millions" of people who are already pledged to silence, whatever she may do. And if any of these were not truly represented in that action of the 319 delegates, then it is urgent upon them just now to wake up and speak out and let it be known that there is at least one Protestant yet alive. And whether a person be a member of any of these churches of the federation, or a member of any other church, or of no church at all, by this action of the Federal Council there is now forced upon every one the personal, pertinent and very important, question,—Are You a Protestant?

NOTE—It is but fair to all, that they should be informed as to what denominations they are whose "membership of more than 17,000,000" were professedly represented in that notable action of the 319 delegates at Chicago. They are the following:

Baptists—Northern Convention
Baptists—National (African) Convention
Christian Church
Congregational Churches
Disciples of Christ
Evangelical (German) Synod of N. America
Evangelical Association

Lutheran: (except Swedish Lutheran)

     Alonzo Jones’ wisdom, led of GOD, reminds us of the continued nature of the ruling class of Christianity and how their objectives of old to rule the world have never ceased. In closing, people today have lost sight of the cost of freedom. Always resting on the sacrifice of previous generation the vast majority do not want to be bothered with things that disturb the soul’s love of ease, comfort, and sin. The whole world is in apathy [emotional emptiness], to such an extent that those hopelessly lost leaders of the New World Order (when there’s nothing new about it: its all luciferian) who are shaping the course of civilization are merely fulfilling the prophecies that GOD laid out 2,500 years ago through the prophet Daniel. The prophetic scenario that has been given to the world has its source in Rome and its ongoing counter-reformation. And Rome’s eternal war against “Jesus Christ and him crucified” have fabricated every popular belief that today’s Christians have swallowed: hook, line, and sinker. And by all outward appearances it will appear that GOD is leading them, because Satan “deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast” (Rev.13:14).

     But as the Waldensians preserved the Apostolic Gospel of the LORD Jesus Christ from 120 A.D. to the reformation, we today are called to follow in their footsteps, as it is written: “the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits. And they that understand among the people shall instruct many: yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame, by captivity, and by spoil, many days [as GOD’S longsuffering allows for the sake of those who respond to the last call of the Gospel]. Now when they shall fall, they shall be holpen with a little help: but many shall cleave to them with flatteries. And some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them, and to purge, and to make them white, even to the time of the end: because it is yet for a time appointed.” Dan.11:32-35.


       Commandment Keepers invites every Christian to join the closing work of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and establish twelve member groups within your respective country, heralding the titles: Commandment Keepers Kenyan Assembly, British Assemby, Brazilian Assembly, etc.  As the Bible teaches, the redeemed of earth will come from "every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people." Rev.14:6. And all will have stood faithful to Christ's Words, "But if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments." Matt.19:17.
       To meet the specific cultural needs of the different peoples of the world, a custom tailored witness is vital for successful evangelism.  While the message of Salvation through the Creator/Christ is universal in its scope, people's cultural affections vary greatly from land to land.  What can bring tears of joy to one group can actually harden the hearts of another.
       To receive this ministry outline click "The Evangelists" below. It contains all the materials needed to succeed in this invaluable type of ministry.
       Two reasons for the need of small church companies at this time in history:
  1. There are six branch ministries, which cover all areas of the closing gospel work, providing each member with an invaluable task.  Teamed up in pairs for each of the branch ministries, none will sit on the sidelines, feeling useless, and where each have equal value to the success of the ministry's work. 
  2. Economic streamlining has become an essential factor in the closing work.  As America and other countries proceed in their place in Bible prophecy a structure of ministry must be in place to carry out the Savior's closing work on the minds and hearts of the people just at the time it is needed the most.  
       This efficient, low cost approach to the closing work will be lavished with GOD'S blessing.  Each of these small church companies will be given an eloquent, persuasive testimony by GOD: to share in the most privileged work on Earth: enlightening the world with His Glory: His redeeming love found in the truth, as the truth is in Jesus:" as Creator of heaven and earth; what He has done: as bearing the punishment for the sins of men; and what He is doing: interceding on behalf of His faithful children who are continuously accused of the devil; and what He will do: deliver His faithful children when He comes again. 
       Through His Presence, Guidance and Intervention, the faith of Bible literate and obedient Christians will swell to a lofty summit, preparing them for the coming of the LORD.  
       Lastly, no tithe is required except to budget your ministry's needs.
