  • Basic Understanding of the Philadelphian Church Period:

    • It is really nothing more than the King James Bible getting into the hands of the Bible believers, and them taking it to the ends of the world.

    • Whereas the domination of the RCC during the Thyatira and Sardis Church periods threw the world into utter darkness, with the entrance of the King James Bible into the world, it threw the world into blazing light!
