Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

Where did CHRISTMAS come from? How did NEW YEAR'S Day celebration start? How did we come to observe EASTER? What is the true origin of Hallowe'en, St. Valentine's Day, and other so-called "Christian" holidays? Where did we get SUNDAY? IN THE seventh chapter of the Book of Daniel is an amazing prophecy picturing for twenty-five hundred years into the future from the day it was written the course of the Gentile dominion over the world. Starting with the ancient Chaldean Empire of Nebuchadnezzar, this prophecy foretells the successive world-rule of the Persian Empire, Alexander's Grecio-Macedonian kingdom with its four divisions, and, finally, of the mighty ROMAN EMPIRE. Out of the original Roman Empire, 31 B.C. to 476 A.D., symbolized by ten "horns" growing out of the head of a "beast," are pictured the ten divisions of the Roman Empire that have carried from 476 down to the present, and are scheduled to continue until the Coming of Christ. Among these ten kingdoms which ruled the Western world from 476 to the present, appeared another "little horn," whose "look was more stout than his fellows."
