Placing a Place of Safety in Biblical Context

Historically in the culture of the Church God a systematic concept with spiritual implications developed regarding what is commonly called The Place of Safety. This message raises questions and offers wide biblical and historical contexts to consider. Is this specific terminology mentioned in Scripture? If so-- how safe is it and who or what are we safe from? If so-- is it a specific place or possibly many places? Are all of God’s worthy saints going to be there (Luke 21:36)? Most importantly: What should be our ultimate spiritual focus here and now?

    Steve Buchanan also had a great Sermon about this not too long ago, and like yours it was great. I will never forget listening to Gerald Waterhouse in a 4 to 5 hour lecture and his many theories about how much cases of toilet paper we needed to take and a defective 777 we were going to fly on that would saved by an angel to take us to Petra. Thanks for the Sermon. It was great

    Mr Webber, why didn't you just say Mr Herbert W Armstrong when you referred to "that gentleman" and "that voice"? Were John's disciples ashamed to say his name after his death? Paul warns us not to act like we didn't receive the knowledge we have, as if we always knew God's truth. Saying Mr Amstrong's name is a sign of respect not worship. I will always be thankful for his sacrifice and obedience that enabled God and Jesus Christ to use him so powerfully.

    Linda, sometimes, we have to be careful of our words, for the newbies and the younger generations benefit. I heard someone of the younger generation said he loathed people worshipping HWA. We were not worshipping him, we were just bringing up the history. I also ran into a newbie, and she felt bringing his name up, was like us going to the SDA and hear about Ellen G. White. He was our teacher, and was called and sent out by God. I think God did a good job picking him. Because he stood strong, even when enemies tried to destroy him, and the work. As long as he was around the splits were minimal. Many of the things HWA taught, could be made reference by the Bible. And some, we do have to use HWA's name. There were many quotes that were made by him, that hold us in good stead.One often quoted, "Don't Believe Me, Believe the Bible". We should be able to quote words of any wise men. A whole adult generation has come up since he died 1986.. I think it is up to each speaker, how & what they say about HWA. He was the one, by Christ's direction, that started the existing Churches of God, today. We should be able to talk our history. HWA left a legacy, for even those not born yet.

    Concerning praying to be worthy of escape, there is also this... “For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭24:24‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ Certainly we naturally think of escaping from a place, but is it not reasonable to pray to escape deception?
