The Philadelphia Church

Located in prophecy (Rev 3:7-13) and devoted to expounding biblical prophecies, The Philadelphia Church is an association of autonomous fellowships theologically united in delivering the good news that all who endure to the end shall be saved (Matt 24:13) as a witness to all nations (v. 14). The association teaches that all disciples that self-identify themselves as Christians comprise spiritual Israel, or the greater Church of God. The association further teaches that the history of physical (i.e., circumcised) Israel is the actual shadow of the history of spiritual Israel in the supra-dimensional realm usually identified as heaven. Therefore, just as there were holy men and women in every generation of circumcised Israel even though the holy nation (Exod 19:5-6) did not keep covenant with God, refusing to walk in His laws and profaning His Sabbaths, there have been faithful disciples in every generation of spiritual Israel even though this latter holy nation (1 Pet 2:9) embraced iniquity. Faithful disciples are those individuals who live by faith, spurning hypocrisy, while continuing to grow in grace and knowledge. They are not confined to any denomination, or to any specific doctrine. They will keep or have kept the laws of God that were written on their hearts and minds when they were drawn by the Father, as they know to keep them.

Physical Israelites became physical bondservants in Egypt. Likewise, spiritual Israelites became bondservants to sin (i.e., lawlessness - 1 John 3:4) in spiritual Babylon. The Philadelphia Church teaches that spiritual Israel will be liberated from spiritual bondage just as physical Israel was liberated from physical bondage, that at a second Passover all spiritual and physical firstborns not covered by the blood of the Lamb of God will be slain as the firstborns of humans and beasts were slain in Egypt. Therefore, in love for its spiritual brethren, the association has open Passover services. The association encourages all disciples, regardless of denominational affiliation, to take the Passover as Jesus established the example and as Paul instructed the saints in Corinth.

The Philadelphia Church teaches that the Tribulation is the birth pains of spiritual Eve. The Church will not escape her labor pains of bringing many heirs of God to glory.

The Philadelphia Church teaches that spiritual Israel will be liberated from bondage in the first half of seven years of tribulation, that halfway through these seven years the kingdom of the world becomes the kingdom of the Most High and of His Messiah (Rev 11:15), that all of humanity will then be liberated from spiritual bondage to Satan, that all of humanity will receive the Holy Spirit (Joel 2:28), that all of humanity has been already called by Christ (Rev 18:4), that everyone who endures to the end without accepting the mark of the beast (Chi xi stigma, or the tattoo [stigma] of Xx [Chi xi]) will be saved; i.e., glorified in the resurrection to life. On day 1260, Satan is cast from heaven (Rev 12:9) and comes as the true antiChrist, claiming to be the Messiah and requiring his former slaves to accept the physical mark of the beast. When cast from heaven, he can no longer control the mental landscapes of humanity by being the prince of the power of the air. He must use physical means to recapture his former slaves. Therefore, the primary evangelistic effort of The Philadelphia Church is to take to the world the good news that all who endure to the end will be saved. This will require that individuals live by faith when it would seem more reasonable to accept the tattoo of the Cross so that they can do business. This will require true endurance. This will require spiritually understanding endtime prophecies. The return of Israelites from the north country that will cause the exodus from Egypt to no longer be remembered (Jer 16:14-15) will be of spiritual Israelites leaving spiritual Babylon.

The Philadelphia Church encourages all disciples and fellowships that desire to join or partner with the association in taking the good news that all who endure to the end will be saved to contact us via email: seekers at the philadelphia church dot org or by snail mail:
