Gerald Flurry's preface uses a speech by President Putin in order to bring up the Yugoslav Wars in order to accuse Germany of engineering Yugoslavia's destruction. He does this to demonize Germany in order to make the idea that Europe will soon conquer America more plausible.
Robert Morley writes about the recent spying revelations concerning the National Security Agency.
Jeremiah Jacques has a little article insisting that PCG's dogmas concerning cosmology and the origin of the Universe are not challenged by the recent discovery of waves that seem to support the theory of inflation.
Dennis Leap has an article condemning the occult. Personally I am no fan of such things but PCG simply uses this fear in order to keep PCG members isolated from society and thus dependent upon remaining in PCG's good will.
Gerald Flurry has an article which exploits the recent crisis over the Ukraine by claiming it is a sign that the Great Tribulation is just about to occur. Armstrongites have been saying this since the 1930s and their dire predictions have always failed.
Richard Palmer has a little side article insisting that some Eastern European nations must be a part of the European Beast Power.
(By the way Richard Palmer is the one who tried to minimize the Srebrenica massacre as a "crime of passion".)
Brad MacDonald has an article insisting that the European Beast Power is supposed to be very strong and very weak at the same time. He does this in order to make PCG members ignore the current weakness of the European Union in order to make a European Beast Power seem more plausible. He also speculates that Karl-Theodor zu Guttenburg will fulfill some prophetic role in the near future.
The Trumpet believes that Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg could be the Daniel 8 man. (p. 15.)Gerald Flurry, using HWA's teaching of the sixth trumpet, has another article insisting that China and India supports Russia's annexation of the Crimea. He insists this is a forerunner of the Kings of the East that, in Armstrongite prophecy, is said to attack the European Beast Power in the final stages of World War III.
Jeremiah Jacques has an article recounting Pope John Paul II's role in helping to end the Iron Curtain in order to emphasize the Papacy's supposed role in the European Beast Power.
Gerald Flurry has another article insisting that President Putin is spoken of in Ezekiel 38 and 39 and that they predict his doom at the hand of God several years after Christ's return.
Vladimir Putin is a sign, literally a SIGN that Jesus Christ is about to return! (p. 21. Capitalized in original.)Gerald Flurry has yet another article insisting that it is important to watch events in Lebanon. He insists that current leaders will forge an alliance (the Psalm 83 nations) to destroy America, Britain and (the State of) Israel. As has been documented previously Gerald Flurry has changed this doctrine to say the nations of Psalm 83 are separate and distinct from the King of the South.
(Incidentally Gerald Flurry teach that the King of the South is to be Iran, even though it is east of Jerusalem, not south. In the Bible geography is based on the Holy Land. So when it talks of the east or the south it means south of the Holy Land, east of the Holy Land, etc. It never ceases to amaze me that Gerald Flurry was this ignorant of geography and how the Biblical authors would write of it.)
Stephen Flurry has a little article encouraging PCG members to lead lives of service for others. What non-COG readers do not know is that this is to prepare potential converts to have to pay three tithes and extra offerings to the leaders of PCG. (I am surprised he writes so little in this issue.)
Brad MacDonald has a little article insisting that problems are caused by human nature and therefore it is impossible to solve the great crises today because of human nature. We must wait for Christ to return to solve these problems.
So we see yet another magazine produced in order to persuade PCG members that they need to pay three tithes and extra offerings to them in order to gain protection from a fabricated threat of an invasion by a European Beast Power in the future. Through this issues PCG continues to try to sustain the bubble of power that its leadership have cocooned themselves in.
