Religious Bluster from Ron Ardis (CGF)

The Day of the Lord Came as the CGF Proclaimed
By Robert Ardis


Robert Ardis is dead wrong! Robert Ardis can proclaim whatever he wants but it doesn't make it right or true, does it? Many have proclaimed their foolishness before the world since the Sabbath-keeping Church of God was founded on the holy day of Shavuot/Pentecost, Sivan 6, in Jerusalem. They're simply teaching their own ideas and are warned to cease and desist:

Ezekiel 13
1 And the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 “Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel who prophesy, and say to those who prophesy out of their own heart, ‘Hear the word of the LORD!’”

3 Thus says the Lord GOD: “Woe to the foolish prophets, who follow their own spirit and have seen nothing! 4 O Israel, your prophets are like foxes in the deserts. 5 You have not gone up into the gaps to build a wall for the house of Israel to stand in battle on the day of the LORD. 6 They have envisioned futility and false divination, saying, ‘Thus says the LORD!’ But the LORD has not sent them; yet they hope that the word may be confirmed. 7 Have you not seen a futile vision, and have you not spoken false divination? You say, ‘The LORD says,’ but I have not spoken.”

8 Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: “Because you have spoken nonsense and envisioned lies, therefore I am indeed against you,” says the Lord GOD. 9 “My hand will be against the prophets who envision futility and who divine lies; they shall not be in the assembly of My people, nor be written in the record of the house of Israel, nor shall they enter into the land of Israel. Then you shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

It's disgusting how so many of the Sabbath-keeping Church of God groups have to try to prove to their sheeple they're the "one true Church of God" and have a flood of "new truth" to sweep them all away. They all abuse the same Scriptures to build themselves up on their wrong foundation and go off on tangents, driven by their vain imaginations (like 2 Peter 3:18), whether it's Ron Ardis' error about the Day of the LORD (YHVH), Flurry's folly, Ron Weinland's stupor, David Pack's blasphemy (he blathers he'll teach the Two Witnesses and the Scripture shows they're in the spirit of Elijah who stands before the LORD (YHVH) of all the Earth and are anointed by Him - not by any man!), ad nauseum.

Philippians 1
15It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill. 16The latter do so in love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel. 17The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains.18But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.

At least all of them offer the basics of the gospel of the Kingdom of God, the Sabbath and holy festivals (that portray God's plan of salvation), the dietary laws and biblical doctrines. We should stick to the trunk of the tree rather than go out on the limbs!

After reading The Day of the Lord Came as the CGF Proclaimed, it's like "what's that got to do with the price of eggs in China?" Why all the bluster? A tempest in a teacup! How does it help you work out your own salvation with fearfulness and trembling? What does it add to your daily walk with God?

Here's what Herbert W. Armstrong clearly taught:
The "Day of the Lord"
