Watching PCG's Telecast, The Most Mysterious Message

Let us now take a look at PCG's The Key of David episode, "The Most Mysterious Message" (Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3), presented by Gerald Flurry. According to their website this program is dated March 14, 2008.

Here is the synopsis.
God prophesies in the book of Daniel about a coming clash between two world powers. The world war they provoke will be stopped by the return of Jesus Christ! Only a small group of people understands and proclaims this message today. Do you understand this mysterious message?
Apparently Part 1 of this telecast happens to be the most watched video on the Key of David's Youtube account.

Here are some notes I took while watching this episode.

We now begin.

Part 1.

Over 100 Bible prophecies foretell the coming of a "nuclear holocaust". (2 minutes.)

Flurry reinterprets "chief of the children of Ammon" is reinterpreted to mean PCG members hiding (or just about to hide) in the place of safety in Petra. (6-7 minutes.)

Of course the full meaning of this is not presented to the viewers. They are expected to go through a lot more before the full meaning of what Flurry is saying is to be told to them. Only after PCG knows they are already hooked.

Flurry then cites an article by Ron Fraser. (7 minutes.).

Fraser's article fear monger that Germany is about to take over coalition military operations in Afghanistan. Flurry plays this assertion to full effect. (7 minutes.).

"Now here is the German army and the military leader saying that they're going to take over the task for all of these other nations that are pulling out. What does that mean? And why would Germany want to have more forces in the Middle East? Why would they want to build up their forces in Afghanistan? I'm telling you that is a shocking event when you realize where it is leading and what it all means for us today." (8:54-9:24)

Part 2.

"It seems like the US is pulling out of here. And will be pulling out of Afghanistan. And I think Germany and the European Union knows that and they're concerned about that." (0:12-0:22)  

Started in 576 AD.  (0:55)

Flurry must mean 554 AD.

He mentions "nuclear holocaust" and "the worst trouble this world has ever seen".

Talks of forces led by "radical Islam" -- Iran plotting to get nuclear weapons. (6 minutes.)

Even some of God's own people (PCG members) will fall from the truth. (9 minutes.)

Part 3 .

"Who in this world religiously talks about a demon army?" He then gives a quick, quiet chuckle and then says, "That's what it is. An army of fallen angels." (1 minute.) 

"God says he's going to save them physically". (4 minutes.)

At the end the program promotes Daniel: Unsealed at Last! (which was discussed in a previous post) and Prophesy Again. And it also promotes the March 2008 issue of The Philadelphia Trumpet.

It encourages the viewers to write to Gerald Flurry. Not PCG, just Gerald Flurry. I find it amazing how at the very end the mailing address is advertized as being for "Gerald Flurry". Not the Philadelphia Church of God. No, just Gerald Flurry, as though it was a one man show.

And so the show ends.

Once again PCG promotes their fear based religion by claiming the Germans are on the verge of turning against America and Britain. HWA and his imitators have been constantly proclaiming that Europe will arise to destroy America and Britain since the 1930s. At first HWA said it was Mussolini, but then he changed it to Hitler after even he had to admit it was Hitler driving events not Mussolini. From 1953 onwards Herbert W. Armstrong taught that Christ would return in 1975.

The idea that Europe will arise to destroy America and Britain as taught by HWA and his imitators is just a fear inducing false prophecy designed to make people scared into getting other peoples' money.


  1. And now we have a new diagnostic tool toy to play with:

    Hubris Syndrome.

    Certainly explains a lot.

  2. Redfox, embed this to your page:

  3. For your entertainment: The habits of Chronically Unhappy people -- sort of the flip side of Stephen Covey's "the 7 habits of highly successful people":

    1. Your default belief is that life is hard.
    2. You believe most people can’t be trusted.
    3. You concentrate on what’s wrong in this world versus what’s right.
    4. You compare yourself to others and harbor jealousy.
    5. You strive to control your life.
    6. You consider your future with worry and fear.
    7. You fill your conversations with gossip and complaints.

    Sounds like a typical Sabbath service.

    And now with xmas coming up, there’s so much more opportunity to develop real depression using the highly successful habits of chronically unhappy people.

    Tsk. Tsk.

    All that anger.
