Dear Mr. Flurry;

It is with grave concern and sincere regret that I am led to write this letter to you. I have been troubled for sometime over written and verbal statements that cannot be proven by God's Word.

God's Holy Spirit led me into the W. C. C. under H. W. A. and led me out of it under J. W. T. Sr.. God's Holy Spirit led me into the P. C. G. under you through Malachi's Message. It is your words and actions that are leading me out of the P.C G. at this time. Please accept my resignation. My Lord commands me to prove all things by His Word. His Word is truth.

I was ill at the time of a minister's visit from headquarters, but I soon heard of his statements regarding the four reasons for disfellowshipping the ministry. These include disfellowshipping those who believe you are the messenger of the Laodician Era. Tragically spiritual blindness was present here. I believe that the statements must have been given out of loyalty and obedience to you.

God blessed you with the seventh lamp, an awesome responsibility and a very great honor. You are obviously the messenger of the Laodician Era. God's Word, Malachi's Message and the history of the P.C.G. since its inception proves it. I know that at this time you emphatically deny this and simply do not believe it. I urge you to study Malachi's Message, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, Matthew 24, II Thess. 2, III John, Rev. 3, 10 and 11 word for word as you instructed us to do using Rev. 1:1 as the example.

Did not God bless you with the prophetic history of the Laodician Era and the characteristics of its two prominent leaders? Is this not the inspired message in Malachi's Message, the cornerstone work of the P. C. G.? Is it not a blessing to be forewarned? To be forewarned is to be forearmed. Do you not realize that action on your part, led by God's Holy Spirit, is urgently required? Look again at Rev. 3:14-22. Is it not the Son of God speaking to the Laodician Era? Did not God the Father give the revelation to him? Rev. 1:1.

Are you not called and commanded along with your fellow ministers to be pure conduits for God's Word? Did not Christ say "Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit?" Are ministers of the living God commanded to be loyal to God or to you? Do you treasure obedient ministers more than those who are led by God's Holy Spirit? Doesn't God call his servants to courageously speak out when they realize a discrepancy or a compromise with His Word? Did not Christ say "Ask, seek and knock?" Why is anyone disfellowshipped for asking questions? Could it be that the ministry cannot back up their answers from you by God's Word? How could it be possible that a prominent headquarters minister of God would refuse to answer any questions? Does the P. C. G. ministry really love His Word? God wants to know and so do I. Is this a trial or test God is giving you and your ministry?

H. W. A. stated that all mankind is prone to error. When realized, it should be promptly addressed, confessed and corrected. He also noted that it is only those in God's true church who will do so. Does the P. C. G. follow H. W. A.'s example?

H.W.A. gave a description of a prophet of God. He stated emphatically that he was not one. Do you fit H. W. A.'s description of a prophet? Is H. W. A. truly the Elijah and what does God's Word say?

Why should there be fear amongst the membership of the P. C. G.? Does not God's Word say, "He does not give us the spirit of fear but of love, power and a sound mind"? Fear is being stirred up in the church: fear of being disfellowshipped, fear of not being taken to a place of safety, fear of speaking to a member who has left and fear of finding out why members have been disfellowshipped.

Is it against God's Word to search a matter for the truth? Why can't we find out why members have been disfellowshipped? Is the truth hidden from the membership? God gives us freedom to talk and question. Why can't we feel free to talk and question without fear of being disfellowshipped? Does not iron sharpen iron? Are we not commanded "To prove all things", "to search the scriptures daily to find out whether it is so"? Does not Malachi 3:16 say that "They who feared the Lord spake often one to another?"

What if they left or were disfellowshipped for obeying God's Word as they were commanded to? If so, would they not be members in good standing in the true Church of God?

What is God's work? Is it not to "believe on him whom He hath sent"? Did not a disciple say to Christ, "You have the words of eternal life!"? Is it not written, "Thy word is truth."?

Did Christ not say, "I live by the Father so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me."?

Is it not written "That my sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me and I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand."? Is it not written "That he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest that they are wrought in God."?

There is one mediator between man and God, the Lord Jesus Christ. It is written that "as many as received him to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name". Are we not called into THE TRUTH?

Upon baptism and the laying on of hands; God's begotten children were given a portion of His Holy Spirit. Does not the Holy Spirit convict of sin, teach all things and reveal things to come? Is it not written that "as many as are led by God's Holy Spirit are the children of God" ? Is it not written in the prophets that they shall all be taught of God?

Is not everyone on varying levels of the spiritual ladder, working on different subjects according to God's Word as they "Work out their own salvation with fear and trembling"?

Christ gave all his disciples a beautiful new commandment at Passover in A.D. 31; "To love one another as I have loved you." Three times he asked Peter if he loved him. Upon each of the affirmations Christ commanded "Feed my sheep! Feed my sheep! Feed my sheep!" Do you love and feed God's begotten children as Christ commanded?

We are alone, yet not alone because God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ are with us as long as we keep the covenant we made at baptism. God gives His spirit to those who obey Him. He seeks those who worship Him in spirit and in truth. It is the "overcomers" who inherit all things. As far as a place of safety is concerned, Psalm 91 refers to His promise to miraculously protect those who truly prove their love for Him as He has for us. We do not trust in any man or any Church to give us safety. Is it not written that "cursed be the man who trusts in man"? Our trust is in God.

God's last warning to the Philadelphians who came out of the Philadelphia Era under J. W. T. Sr. into the Laodician Era under you, is to "Let no man take your crown."

Is not God's warning, through Jesus Christ, to the messenger of the Laodicians in Rev. 3:14:22 explicit and frightening? J. W. T. Sr. did not heed H. W. A.'s final instructions to get the church ready. I am praying that you will.

Let us take urgent heed and obey his instructions. Immediately we should fast and pray fervently, examining ourselves in detail by God's Word. There is no time to lose. Is not the Great Tribulation almost upon us? Do we not await the arrival of the Two Witnesses?

Here is a marvelous opportunity to be strong and very courageous. We cannot allow any of God's begotten children to be "Wretched, poor, blind and naked." Let us stir up the Holy Spirit within all of us and strive valiantly for God's Holy righteous character. Did not Christ say "Anything you ask the Father in my name, I will do"?

Let us all humble ourselves mightily before God, confess our iniquities to Him, acknowledge Him in all our ways, so He will direct our paths. It may be that we will avert a most horrendous tragedy if we do. Your decision pertaining to the spiritual path you take is crucial. Let God direct your steps.

Be assured that you and your ministry will always be in my prayers, as will all God's begotten children, small and great.

May God's will be done,
