Know The Answer?
Who am I: My throne was overturned. I died in Babylon. All my sons and my nobles were killed. I was King of Judah. I am a descendant of David's dynasty.

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.

Personal from Herbert W Armstrong - I WONDER how many of my readers are like one who said to me recently: "Well, I'll tell you why I'm not a Christian. It isn't that I don't believe in God or in being convened - I believe it, all right - and I've often wanted to be a Christian - but somehow it just all seems so FAR OFF - SO UNREAL." Tonight I cut a large slice of watermelon and ate it, It was delicious - and I was sure it was real. It didn't seem far off, mysterious, unreal. The things we see, and handle, come in constant daily contact and association with all seem REAL. Yes, this slice of watermelon was real. But I thought, as I worked to extricate the seeds, "What caused these seeds to grow inside this melon? Out of the ground, from another seed, sprouted a vine, and on the vine a tiny watermelon began to form, and as it grew these seeds developed inside it. And if we keep on planting and growing watermelons for ten thousand years those seeds, which will sprout more watermelons, will continue to develop inside every watermelon.
