You are correct, Reep. Check out this link (hopefully it works):
[www.amazon.com]

List of the book's chapters:

*******************

Here's a clue I found regarding JRS' "revelation" about the Feast of Tabernacles:

Biblical Feasts

The Lord revealed the importance of the Feast of Tabernacles to John Robert Stevens around 1955. God revealed the very day he was to begin his observance, and even though he hadn’t looked at a Jewish calendar, it was the exact date that Tabernacles was to start that year. God made clear to him the scriptural reality of the feast as he began celebrating it personally during this time, and a few years later he began celebrating it with Grace Chapel of South Gate. He later instituted the celebration of the Feast of Pentecost and the Feast of Passover in the mid-sixties.

I'm assuming that he wouldn't have "written" the Feast of Tabernacles manual until after he had the "revelation". ; )

Of course, if anyone still has a copy of The Feast of Tabernacles manual, please let us know the date of publication.

John's very first prayer:
Thy Kingdom Con!

I’m afraid that John Robert Stevens was more of a con than we ever could have imagined.

I would suggest taking a black Sharpie, crossing out 1955, and writing 1949 instead. That should dispel all the rumors about John being a plagiarist.
The black Sharpie does not lie!

It is pretty clear we had the wool pulled over our eyes before we were taken to the cleaners. Having the 'gift of gab' just made the con all that more impressive.

It is amazing how most of us would never have considered perpetrating the things which both JRS and G&M were responsible for. Chock up one more black spot on Christianity's very checkered past.

No shortage of bad press for our CREATOR--all in the name of our CREATOR.

Thank you all for the info. It was enlightening.

My first glance in to George Warnock’s website, I found this gem...

“I would encourage God’s people not to be so caught up with books on "cults" that you fail to know Him who is The Truth. When a new employee in a bank came to the manager, asking if he had false currency he could study -- his reply was simply: "You study the real currency…then you will be able to detect the false." Only the Truth will make one free. If you make the Lord Jesus to be Lord of your life…the false will have no attraction for you. The artificial rose may look exactly like the living rose -- but it is dead.”

Gaslight much, Mr. Warnock? SMH!!!

New employee: O.K., it's almost closing time. Could you stuff lots of new currency in this bag, and I will study it at home?

Manager: Sure. You're taking your job very seriously, and I respect that!

note: the new employee did not show up for work the next day, and the manager was subsequently fired. I'm not really sure what the moral of this story is.

John was a contemporary of George Warnock--a few years younger, I think. He would have been around 22 years of age when our country got drawn into WW2. I doubt he ever served in the military, otherwise that would have been plastered all over his bio. He projected himself as a "man's man," after all.
That said, I did hear from many people that he spoke into existence the tearing down of the Berlin Wall, which happened six years after he passed, so that is something.

Getting one thing 'right' after getting so many things wrong does not make one a 'door-opener apostle'.

I envision my body will one day exit the scene (method unclear), and getting that 'right' is no grounds for prophet-hood, just a fact yet to occur.
