A brief welcoming statement from BIWF-USA President James V. McElroy commenced the first session on Tuesday morning in the spacious Quality Inn Conference Center. We were given a capsule report on the remarkable progress which is being made since the initial establishment of the USA branch of the World Federation merely two years ago. The National Headquarters and Offices have been recently relocated to beautiful Heber Springs, Arkansas, site of this year's annual Conference. The setting is absolutely idyllic: truly an ideal location for the National Headquarters and this Conference!
Following President McElroy's remarks, BIWF-USA Chaplain Charles A. Jennings set the spiritual tone for the Conference. He reminded us that we are dealing with a "Reformation-sized" Truth in the reality of Anglo-Israel throughout the world. God's everlasting faithfulness to His Chosen has resulted in great gifts: to the earth, the Adamic race; to the Adamic race, the seed of Abraham; to the seed of Abraham, the family of Jacob/Israel; to Jacob/Israel, the tribe of Judah; to Judah, the house of David, to the house of David, David's "Greater Son", our LORD Jesus Christ!
We were graced to have a magnificent lineup of speakers: From various locations and viewpoints throughout this great country, the various guest ministers brought messages of strong faith in God and great hope for the future.
Our keynote speaker, "Coach" Dave Daubenmire from Hebron, Ohio, addressed the assembled delegates and guests with a message brought in his own unique style. He presented a two-part commentary which reminded us, with reference to historical documents, of the Christian foundation which was the impetus for establishing these United States as the fulfillment of prophecy to the patriarch Joseph's elder son Manasseh. Coach Dave presently leads Pass The Salt Ministries (ptsalt.com), dedicated to raising a Biblical standard in the face of degeneration of our Western Christian culture.
Author and speaker Des Thomas, of Kingdom Publishing in Calhoun, Georgia, presented some very uplifting facts concerning God's everlasting Covenant with His people Israel. Using a number of examples drawn from portions of his comprehensive research concerning the Tribes of Israel, with special focus upon Benjamin (mostly found in present-day Iceland) and Manasseh (mostly found in the present-day USA), he greatly encouraged us to see that Israel's best days are yet soon to come!
James W. Bruggeman, of Stone Kingdom Ministries at Asheville, North Carolina presented two lectures concerning the general characteristics and features of spiritual covenants, including qualifications, ceremonies, seals, signs, tokens and memorials, in addition to the methods by which covenant relationship is established.
Pastor Glen Miller, from Lake Hamilton Bible Camp in Hot Springs, Arkansas was introduced by Chaplain Charles Jennings and delivered a most stirring and exciting testimony concerning his own experience in receiving the divine revelation of the Anglo-Israel Truth at Westminster Abbey more than 40 years ago!
Our very special guest speakers, BIWF-United Kingdom President Michael A. Clark and General Secretary David J. Aimer both made excellent presentations from their rich treasure of knowledge and experience.
Michael Clark distributed a chart from which he described the Scriptural significance of various world events, using calculations based on Bible numerics, noting the passage of days and years between these events; and that although there is no basis for "hard and fast" predictions, we should all be aware of these cycles of time as we anticipate the soon coming of the Righteous Rule of Jesus Christ upon the Throne of David! He added some very interesting prophetic information concerning the current slate of American presidential candidates.
David Aimer announced that the World Federation is currently completing work on a motion picture which will help to explain the Truth of Anglo-Israel to this media-conditioned generation. He then presented a comprehensive power-point slide presentation which thoroughly described the unique heritage of God's people Israel from Bible times to the present day. Of particular note was the description of modern-day "gates" which are still firmly possessed by the Anglo-Saxon world. These modern gates would include the banking system, hard currencies, international market dominance, military power and superior technology. And even in the midst of the apparent continuing decline of Western Christian culture, the Anglo-Saxon peoples still exert considerable moral leadership in the world.
We were also pleased to have in attendance Pastor Glen J. Ellis from Lanagan, Missouri; Pastors Robert and Paul Turman and their wives from Searcy, Arkansas and Mr. Lynn Hoffman and his sister Carol Foreman, representing Artisan Publishers in Muskogee, Oklahoma.
We are very thankful to our members and board members for helping us to have such a successful annual Conference, and we very much appreciate all of those who made the effort to attend; your contributions are truly beyond measure!
