Excerpt From Newsletter
Let me explain something for the benefit of those who can “see” what God is doing here at the End of the Age. My God called me to restore and teach The Apostolic Teaching so that True Believers will be able to recognize and reject the lies of Satan when he appears as the Antichrist. He did not call me to enlist and train other so-called “teachers” to help me accomplish that task. Why would He? Those people could easily misunderstand the Truth and end up distorting it, thereby changing the Truth into a lie. That is a completely unnecessary risk. With the current state of technology, all anyone needs to do to understand (for themselves and nobody else) the things I teach is to read what I write and to listen to the tapes I record. If they do that, they can learn (for themselves and nobody else) all of the Hebrew idioms and parabolic imagery they need to know to be able to read and understand the Scriptures (for themselves and nobody else).
So, if True Believers can learn The (restored) Apostolic Teaching from the materials that I produce and The Voice of Elijah® distributes, why would anyone need someone like our eager volunteer “Pastor” Smug to explain those things to them? Is he somehow more intelligent than all others so that he can break the Truth down into even smaller bites for the less intelligent? I seriously doubt that he is. Instead, I do believe he is planning to do the same thing the Gnostics did to the Early Church. That is, he wants to use the novel things that I teach so that he can “show what he knows” to other Pretenders who are not aware of how he came by them. That is, he is one of those lamebrained Pretenders the Apostle Paul describes this way:
They eagerly seek you, not commendably, but they wish to shut you out, in order that you may seek them.
If you can “see” from the things I have explained to this point that what I teach is true, you need to consider this: I did not receive authority to teach what I teach from anyone other than Jesus Christ Himself, and I will NEVER give anyone the authority to teach what I teach. That authority will live and die with me because my calling, as I understand it, will be complete when I die.
If someone wants to pass along the things I make available for public distribution and tell others where they can get even more of the same, that’s fine. But if he wants to “help” me by doing what the Gnostics did to the Early Church, that is, by mixing what I teach with his own goofy beliefs, that person should probably check to make sure the god he serves is not someone other than the God I serve.
