The archangel Lucifer originated evil in the universe. We must go back to the beginning of this “movie” to understand events taking place today. Lucifer’s rebellion drastically changed the course of God’s master plan.

God sent Lucifer and a third of the angels (Revelation 12:4) to Earth to rule and to finish its creation. They failed because they hadn’t developed the character to properly administer God’s government. They proved that God couldn’t trust the angels to govern the Earth and later the universe, so God decided to re-create Himself in man! Only God Himself—including His spirit-born sons—is capable of completing such a massive mission.

Lucifer, whose name meant “light bringer,” rebelled and became Satan, meaning “adversary.” His decision permanently damaged the angels under his authority: “And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day” (Jude 6). Satan led the angels astray. They have lost their universe-ruling potential! They are just “wandering stars” (verse 13), like planets out of orbit—all because they rejected God’s government. Everything fails when God’s government isn’t implemented.

Letters

I like people like Gerald Flurry, who put insight into the Scriptures.
S. K.
Thanks for this teaching! Great topic that we definitely all need to know and determine when that is.
B. S.
I refer to your recent letter welcoming me as a new co-worker and laborer with the Philadelphia Church of God. I’d just like to say how honored and privileged I feel to be considered in such a way, and hope to continue to support God’s Work diligently through prayer and financially into the future.
E. S.
I would just like to say that I am so impressed with the message that I am reading in this booklet. It is helping me to deepen my understanding of the Bible and is a joy to read. The doctrine is very inspirational, helping me to build a desire to learn more. Many thanks.
K. M.
I love what you people are doing. I very much wanted to go to Tampa to hear Mr. Flurry, but I didn’t have a ride, but I love your material. I was a Seventh Day Baptist when I was younger, and I am so glad that I found people who keep the Ten Commandments.

This is a story about God’s Church gone off track and what God did to correct the tragedy.
Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in 1934 (though it began with a different name) and led it for over 51 years to its height in membership, global impact and income at the time of his death in 1986.
Soon, however, disturbing and significant changes in Church doctrine began to be introduced. The changes revealed a diversion in course, one that led to catastrophe.
