An Appeal from Brother Leroy

by sighandcry on June 22, 2010


God is love.
Love and wickedness cannot dwell together like light and darkness cannot dwell together.

The world in Noah’s time was destroyed by its wickedness. The tower of Babel was destroyed by its wicked distrust in God’s promise. Wickedness is disobedience to God’s  Ten Commandments of Love.
God is Love.

Ancient Israel was destroyed for their wickedness in crucifying God’s Son sent to save them.

God is merciful, gracious, long suffering but cannot clear the guilty who persist in transgression.

The seventh church of Revelation―Laodicea; The Church preaching Judgment; Modern Day Israel with the truth of Jesus work in the Sanctuary and the true Sabbath are ripe for destruction because of their wickedness. The Pastors have become brutish, above reproof, even by God’s own servant. They want to go their own way, to rule rather than serve. They take brethren to court who disagree with them and cast out of the Church those wanting to walk in the light of the Spirit of Prophecy, the present truth that the flock needs now. They have become kingly powers instead of Servants of the Most High God. They are not representing God’s love but are harsh and dictatorial, overbearing, and rude.

Bro. Jim, Thank you for your comment. To answer your question it is likely because they long to see their beloved brethren saved from the perilous Laodicean condition. On the other hand we do acknowledge that this post is a little long so we edited it down and placed the body of the text in a downloadable PDF document. We need to figure out how to incorporate the “read more” feature into this blog so that the posts can have a short lead in and then go to a fuller reading for those who are interested.

I would like to know who is the Joshua in the Kingdom? I would also like to know when Bashan and Gilead would be operative as good spiritual pastures.

Thank you very much and I am patiently awaiting your reply.

Dear Dotte:

You ask some serious weighty questions that indicate that you are searching deeply into the mine of Truth. There are a couple of more detailed studies to address your questions of which we will provide links to below. The identity of the antitypical Joshua who, according to the Rod message, is heaven’s appointed judge and ruler, and he is the one will lead the 144,000 in the kingdom. He is also represented by antitypical David, the visible king. Here are the links, also some statements from the Rod concerning this Joshua.

Antitypical king David study:
Carmel, Bashan, and Gilead Study:

“These scriptures plainly show that the Exodus Movement of old led by Moses through his shepherd’s rod, from Egypt to Canaan, points forward in type to the final deliverance of God’s people from their long servitude to the kingdom of this world, to freedom in the kingdom of God. Accordingly this final and latter day Exodus Movement is to be led by the antitypical Shepherd’s Rod, and liberated from all earthly bonds–from sin and from sinners.

But let it be remembered that the Exodus Movement, the type, was in two sections, the first section being led by Moses, and the second by Joshua, and that it was the last, the purified, section (that which grew up after the forty years’ wilderness wandering, and after all but two who were over twenty years of age when they left Egypt, had died) that possessed the land.

The Movement led by the Rod today is the only Movement in Christendom fitting the type–the Israel of Joshua’s day: like it, drawing its followers only from the parent Movement, and having as its threefold objective the deliverance of God’s people from bondage, the possession of the land and the establishment of the kingdom. And just as the purified Israel of Joshua’s day, the generation which survived the forty-year wilderness wanderings, inherited first the final leadership of the typical Exodus Movement, and then the land of promise, so the purified Israel today (the 144,000), the ones who survive the forty-year period of wandering from 1890-1930, and who escape the slaughter of Ezekiel 9, are to be promoted to the final leadership of the antitypical Exodus Movement, then to inherit “the promised land,” and to be citizens in the everlasting Kingdom.

Thus we see that it was not until after the murmurers were eliminated, in the ensample, that Joshua took over, and led the Exodus Movement in the land of Canaan. Accordingly, in the antitype the period before the Rod came the Laodicean period, is the one in which are to be found the typical wanderings, doubtings, and murmurings, both against the founder and the dietetic principles (“health reform”) of the Movement, and the consequent curses and slaughter.

The immediate result of these murmurings complainings, and doubtings today has been to blind the eyes of many in the Advent Movement, causing them to turn back from following Christ their Leader, and steadily to retreat “toward Egypt.”–Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 217. Consequently, in another tragic parallel, just as Moses wrote the sad experience of the type so the founder of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination wrote the even sadder experience of the antitype, declaring as far back as 1888: “Many had lost sight of Jesus;” and “Doubt and even disbelief of the testimonies of the Spirit of God, is leavening our churches everywhere.”–Testimonies, Vol. 5, p. 217.” — Answerer Book 3, pp. 19, 20

Zech. 3:1-4 — “And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand plucked out of the fire? Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel. And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with change of raiment.”

The first one to be given the garment is Joshua, the high priest, the highest official in the church. If he has not the garment, then no one else has it either. From this we see that the genuine revival and reformation starts at the head, not at the feet, and that before one is given the right to put the garment on, his iniquity is taken away — he repents of his sins, and the Lord blots them out. Satan, though, is right there to resist and accuse him; but, thanks be to God that the Lord is also there to rebuke the enemy. Do you catch the lesson, Brother, Sister? While you are getting the garment you will have to meet strong opposition. But what of it? Is it too much to stand firmly for Truth and righteousness when the majority forsake? And how else shall you become a hero for God? (Read Matthew 5:10-12.)

The apostles and the prophets not only withstood opposition from their own brethren, but they even gladly died for their white garment. You, though, are not now asked to give up your life, but to save it. The “tables” are now reversed. The Lord will not permit you to be consumed by the flame. He is to rescue you as a “brand plucked out of the fire.”

From this we see that the Joshua of today is having his filthy garments exchanged for white robes, for the righteousness of Christ.

Zech. 3:5 — “And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the Lord stood by.”

Not only is he clothed in a white garment, but he is also crowned with a fair mitre. And what could such a mitre denote other than the authority vested in him as Heaven’s appointed ruler? As such he is clothed from his head to his feet,” and the angel of the Lord stood by.” What a gift! and what a bodyguard for one to have in a world such as ours! In spite of it, though, human beings are very slow and hesitant to take their stand on the Lord’s side. Most of them had rather lean on a man.

Zech. 3:8 — “Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth My servant the Branch.”

Not only Joshua, but also those who sit before him (the congregation) are admonished to hear this charge. And what kind of men are they? — Men wondered at. This symbolism shows that at the fulfillment of this prophecy the angel of the church of the Laodiceans is no longer in charge of the Lord’s house, and that God’s people are to be made up wholly of men wondered at!

Obviously, then, as a result of this revival and reformation within the Laodicean church, another church emerges of which Joshua is in charge, not the angel of Laodicea. In it there are to be neither “tares” (Matt. 13:30), “bad fish” (Matt. 13:47, 48), or “goats” (Matt. 25:32). The Laodicean, the seventh, is the last that is commingled with hypocrites, saints and sinners.

Who is to bring this revival and reformation, this great change? — The BRANCH. And according to Isaiah 11:1 to 5, the Branch is the Lord, the Son of David. We shall now read-

Zech.3:9 — “For behold the stone that I have laid beforeJoshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.”

Those who sit before Joshua are “men wondered at.” As such they are depicted by the “stone” (church, or Kingdom) that is in Joshua’s sight. It has seven eye-perfect vision. When this purification of the church takes place then the sin in the land is quickly removed — “in one day.”

Here is seen genuine revival and reformation accompanied by the purification of the church. The Lord is to have a pure church and a clean people.” — Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 8, pp. 21-24

Zech. 6:14 — “And the crowns shall be to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of the Lord.”

Verse 14 reveals that Joshua is to pass the crowns on to his helpers whom the Lord Himself names. This is to be a memorial, an everlasting reminder in the temple of the Lord.

What can all this mean? — Just this: Joshua is Heaven’s appointed judge, ruler. He himself is crowned as such. And in response to the Lord’s Own command, Joshua crowns (authorizes) his helpers whom the Lord Himself names. In other words, as members of “the house of David,” Joshua authorizes them to engage in the work. So, Joshua is responsible to the Lord, but his helpers are responsible to Joshua. Here is seen an organization having a Leader and an under leader — the Lord and Joshua. Thus it is that whatever is to be bound on earth, is also to be bound in Heaven (Matt. 16:19.)” — Timely Greetings, Vol. 1, No. 8, p. 26
