The Philadelphia Church

The Philadelphia Church [Philadelphia] is an association of autonomous fellowships theologically united in delivering the endtime good news [gospel] that all who endure to the end shall be saved (Matt 24:13), with this gospel being proclaimed throughout the world as a testimony to all nations (v. 14) … the endtime gospel is not the good news that the kingdom of God is at hand; is not a message about Christ Jesus being disciples’ personal Savior; but is a message about salvation coming in the Endurance-of-Jesus to all who do not take upon themselves the mark of the beast, chi xi stigma, the tattoo [stigma] of Christ’s cross [chi xi], thereby heeding the third angel’s message (Rev 14:9–11). Philadelphia keeps and delivers the glorified Jesus’ word about the Endurance (Rev 3:10), the last 1260 days of seven years of tribulation; of seven years unlike any the world has ever seen.

A prophet isn’t needed to deliver good news, but to deliver bad news (see Jer 28:7–9) … holding the testimony of Jesus (Rev 12:17) that is the spirit of prophecy (Rev 19:10) before endtime prophecies come to pass, Philadelphia teaches that all disciples self-identifying themselves as “Christians” comprise spiritual Israel, the greater Church of God, the nation of Israel that is to be circumcised of heart. Philadelphia further teaches that the history of physical (outwardly circumcised) Israel from the days of the patriarchs to when Moses led Israel across the Sea of Reeds forms the shadow and type of the history of spiritual Israel in the heavenly realm from Calvary to the Second Passover liberation of this second nation of Israel from indwelling Sin and Death, this liberation from Death [Assyria, or the North Country] causing Israel to no longer remember the nation’s exodus from Egypt (Jer 16:14–5; 23:7–8). And 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 their belief of God, 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 placed in their minds when they were drawn by the Father and delivered to Christ Jesus for Him to call, justify, and glorify.

Philadelphia teaches that the Tribulation is the birth pains of spiritual Eve, with God bringing forth a nation in a day (Isa 66:7-8) … the greater Christian Church will not escape her labor pains of bringing many heirs of God to glory.
