COG Persecutions of the zealous:
There have been a number of persecutions going on in COGWA and LCG of people who are zealous for the Sabbath and are moving to God’s Biblical calendar.
In COGWA (Oregon) - One elder and one deacon were disciplined for accepting and following the Biblical Calendar. They have both been demoted, removed from speaking, and their attendance is, until after the feast, probationary. Beyond the feast, their attendance is in doubt.
There is also an LCG hearing under way in Oregon.
Further, a UCG deacon of decades standing, has been retired for his zeal for the Sabbath and the Biblical Calendar, although he will continue on until a replacement is found and he will be allowed to attend.
Over a month ago now, Dave Register slandered me in a church service sermon by innuendo and character assassination, and I sent him a Mat 18 message, politely asking him to contact me and resolve any issues that we might have in private and to desist from public and private slander. Because he has not responded in a month and has persecuted the zealous, I am at liberty to mention this to the Ekklesia.
Let me say first that I am NOT and have never knowingly been in contact with the two persons in Oregon. I do not even know their names, however the information comes from a solid and unimpeachable source.
I do know that many brethren have questioned Dave over the past many months on the Sabbath, Calendar etc and that he has been unable to refute the scriptures on these things, usually falling back on the: “If it didn’t come from HWA it is not important and can’t be right” nonsense, while often personally attacking me instead of dealing with the questions.
I have always had a high respect for Dave and I am deeply saddened by his rejection of truth, and his persecution of the zealous and faithful.
Over these next months as world events unfold, COG events unfold, and with the coming 2013 COG Passover being several days out. This kind of persecution will build and the good elders and faithful zealous brethren will be forced to take a stand.
Brethren this is just the tip of the iceberg as to what is going on. I can report these because decisions have already been taken. Please pray without ceasing for these people as they face critical decisions in their spiritual lives.
