History of the decoding & Gordon's battle with FDS3

My thanks to: Professor Horace David Ritchie (dad), Grandpa Prentice, Hugh Woodcock (DCPS), Roger Shakeshaft (DCPS), Mr Ashenhurst (DCPS), Chris Wall (Dulwich College), Esmond Rand (Dulwich College), Classics Master Tomlinson (Dulwich College), Graham Findlay, Dr Ray Mitchell, Dean Green of Queens, Prof Thompson (Feit Thompson theorem), Dr Hyland (Logic at Cambridge), Dr Martin Powell (Algebra at Oxford), Clifton Turner (JW study conductor), Tony Moore, Massoud Vakili, Dulwich College Preparatory School, ILEA (funding), Magdalene College Cambridge and Magdalen College Oxford, for teaching me to think gracefully.

Every religion (except perhaps the Gnostic church of St Paul and hopefully the Lords' Witnesses today) eventually makes the mistake of stifling free thought amongst its congregation. Perhaps the most effective way of doing this is to pass itself off as a promoter of bible research whilst acting to destroying it. These churches discourage the congregations from doing their own personal research because the priests are insecure about their failed research or biblical understandings. So being more interested in their own power and status within the congregation than they are in actually performing their priestly duties to teach the congregation the truth from God, they stifle this truth and steal God’s power for their own corrupted self seeking use. It is a syndrome which is not unique to churches. Academic departments, government departments and commercial companies all have it as well. My father used to call people who practice this, the ‘Mediocre Mafia’. Jesus described them thus:

Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because you shut up the kingdom of the heavens before men. For you yourselves do not go in, neither do you permit those on their way in to go in (Matthew 23:13).

The reader will see from the history of the battle below how the Governing Body of the Jehovah’s Witnesses (with the partial exception of Daniel Sydlik) have taken just such a position with my research. It is so hypocritical given that their original name was ‘International Bible Students’.

It is my fervent hope, and my strong resolve that I and that the Life, the Lord’s Witnesses, the Bible Decoders, will always encourage bible research from all of the members of the congregation and indeed from anybody else! Whether such research agrees with our present understanding or whether it shoots it down in flames entirely!

The best way to ensure that this occurs is always to admit publicly the possibility that any of the currently accepted interpretations may be wrong. We have to be academic in our approach to bible understanding here and not professional or political! Dammit they could all be wrong! It is up to the reader to decide! But this is how one follows God, one simply obeys the best bible information that one has at the time! I hope that the reader will see that this website has this information and by some considerable margin right now. I hope that he or she will help us to improve it in the little time that is left. And I hope that God gives us all the grace to see it! God can reveal his true interpretations to anybody! Sinners and righteous alike, rich and poor, well educated and barely educated, powerful and powerless, good and bad, healthy and sick, church goers and church haters, straight and crooked, guilty and innocent, men and women and children. His arm is never cut short, and there is nothing that is too extraordinary for him. He can reveal them! But only those who love him will accept them.

Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God (Matthew 5:8).

For they loved the glory of men more than even the glory of God.
However, Jesus cried out and said: He that puts faith in me puts faith, not in me [only], but in him [also] that sent me; and he that beholds me beholds [also] him that sent me.
I have come as a light into the world, in order that everyone putting faith in me may not remain in the darkness
(John 12:43-46).

N.B. Many of the understandings in these historical letters and books are wrong and many (but not all) have now been corrected. Below is a list of most of the correspondence between us, it was rather one way! I have lost one or two letters I think.

He was antitypical Joseph the 1st horseman of the apocalypse. Time to go conquering. Time to go subduing in the midst of his enemies. Gran Canaria Thurs night 9th September 1999.
2000January251999Shebat14: This website is advertised by Fax in the UK.
2000January26before 2pm 1999Shebat14: This website is advertised by Fax in the US. First responses to fax adverts 'Calling all Christians'.
2000January27after 9pm, 1999Shebat16: LWs first respond to enquiries from website and fax campaign
2000March21First public meeting of the LWs in the Cumberland Hotel, London, around 200 attended, responding to a faxed invitation. 3 ways of deducing the date of Armageddon were presented in the evening
2000April/May/JuneWeekly talks at the Cumberland Hotel, W1, very large leaps in our understandings were made.
2000Elul16The 2NC celebrated with Tony who was baptised on this day. LW congregation starts on 616
2000Tishri16The 2NC celebrated 30 days late due to new understandings of how to celebrate it. Jamie, the 3rd LW, was 'water' baptised by Gordon (through the laying on of hands) on this day.
2000NovemberGordon Ritchie, Gary McCaferry and later Justin Pugsley and Richard Williamson invent HyperOs, software that runs Microsoft Windows entirely from system RAM, and runs several copies of Windows without multibooting. Gordon wished to show an incredulous World that he is good at computer coding, in order to establish credibility with bible decoding (this was his excuse in any event). Writing software that competes with Microsoft is light relief from bible decoding intellectually. But it is not as satisfying spiritually obviously.
2001October823:41 BST, 2001Tishri17. Guardian exposes that the Watchtower is a UN NGO. www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2001/oct/8/religion.world
2001October9UN DPI Disassociated the Watchtower from the UN at the Watchtower's request.
2001October15Guardian writes an article exposing the Hypocrisy of the Watchtower www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2001/oct/15/religion.unitednations
2001October222001Tishri30. Paul Gillies writes to the Guardian in response to their two articles on October8 and October15 falsely accusing the Guardian of misrepresenting and saying himself that the Watchtower only joined the UN as an NGO affiliated with the DPI in order to gain a library card. The writer visited the UN office when it was in Millbank towers in London and was able to get any book he wanted from the UK office or the Library in the UNs Manhattan HQ via the UK office, without needing a library card and without needing to go to the US. So the Harlot dismounted the beast due to her being exposed. See letter from Paul Gillies.
2001November12001Heshvan10. Watchtower HQ writes to all the branch offices in every nation re-iterating the library card lie and recommending that all the branches use the same lie to deflect righteous criticism of their putting Satan's throne in God's temple. See Letter to Branches.
2002Elul162002August27. Baptised Roger Knight at what we thought was the correct date for a 2NC celebration. He then went off to AOL (the angel of Laodicea) and formed an LW church within the JWs, the congregation of Laodicea, the 7th congregation of Revelation 2/3.
2003Nisan17Laodicea commences, with the baptism by Roger Knight of the second member (calculated as 430 years a month for a day before 2017Ab17)
2003August/SeptemberGordon begins to realise that HyperOs was not what God wanted him to be doing. The period from 2000 to 2003 should have been used to further bible understanding, not to attempt to compete with Microsoft. A wasted opportunity. But Gordon's false step means an opportunity for the rest of the world. So come on you men and women with faith. Be modern day interpretational prophets and prophetesses, come and decode the bible with us and feed on the divine truth, there is nothing on earth like it!
2006Nisan18/19April17: Red Lobster letter sent to Don Adams comparing the Passover celebrate by Reggie (and LW student) with the JWs to the Passover celebrated in Chicago by the LWs.
2006Nisan202pm in NYC Dan Sydlik died  
2006Nisan21Emailed the church saying: Dan Sydlik has died and "I am going to write another fax to Don Adams. This one will go into Jesus not drinking the cup or eating the meal again until he does it new in the kingdom of his father. I will copy everyone in on this fax. In the final analysis, we must act out of faith and love, not fear and self-interest. And we must do that whilst we still can!"
2006Nisan21-23Letter to Don Adams instructing him how to celebrate the Lord's Evening Meal, sent between 01:57 April20 and 05:13 April22, 2006. 
2006Nisan30/Iyyar116 page Sign of Jonah letter faxed to Brooklyn Bethel and 70 of the 112 Watchtower Bethels worldwide
2006Sivan24/Tammuz2-6Second Watchtower Destruction date (or date of first publishing of 2nd Watchtower destruction date). A 7x Alienation Times prediction malediction on the LWs begins.
2010Chislev20-23The first fire sign of 1Kings18 occurs. The largest fire in modern Israel's history upon mount Carmel.
2013Tammuz3Gordon Apologizes to the Watchtower for the mistakes in the Sign of Jonah Letter and warns them of the coming New Passovers in a New Letter
2013Tebbeth18-Shebat1Our 400th fire sign prediction failure (counting 2010Chislev21 - when the first fire sign occurred). Hopefully we have by now learned that interpretations belong to God and that we only get them if he permits it. The bar is set slightly above human intelligence so that the holy spirit needs to give us a foot up in order that we can see over the wall into the garden of God. We should not have implied that God would execute a nuclear judgement upon the Watchtower Bethel. Satan kills with nuclear bombs. God kills with Passovers. He will execute a New Passover judgement upon the Brooklyn Bethel and upon all the other Bethels and then upon all the congregations and then upon all those who have left the congregations of the Watchtower but not joined another church (those in the prison hole).

2016Tebbeth11 (4-6pm on 2016December14, the very start of 2016Tebbeth11) Realised that 2nd appointments over 1NCs occur at 2nd 1NC first fruits and 2nd appointments over 2NCs occur at 2nd 2NC first fruits. Therefore the new Laodicean 2NC Pentecost (which we now know does not exist) had to be 2016Chislev30. So the late new Laodicean 2NC Pentecost had to be 2016Tebbeth30.

And that the 24th Baalian Pentecost from 2013Heshvan1 is 2016Adar1/VeAdar1 and the 78th God testing Pentecost from 2006Iyyar1 is 2016Adar1/VeAdar1.
