IAUA End Time Ministry

Preparing for the End of Time

The Lord is Coming!   Are you ready?


23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
Proverbs 23:23
1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom;
2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
2 Timothy 4:1-4
17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
2 Peter 3:17-18
IAUA End Time Ministry is a personal, independent ministry. This ministry is my personal effort to follow the will of God. The purpose of the ministry is to promote Bible study and to witness to God's truth through Internet websites, email newsletters, printed books, public presentations, and personal contact with those who show an interest in deeper additional truth.

This ministry agrees with the fundamental teachings of the Seventh-Day Adventist (SDA) denomination. I believe there is a fundamental teaching missing from the denomination's doctrine. I also believe there is an error being taught in the denomination which contradicts its own fundamental teachings.

This ministry is primarily focused on presenting new light from the Bible to those in the community of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination. This is the community where I was raised and it is the community in which I live and work. I believe it is the primary community God has called me to reach with 21st Century Present Truth. However, I do not practice or believe in exclusivity. Therefore, my work is inclusive to all those seeking to follow God and His Word.

This ministry is not a part of the SDA denomination and is not recognized or approved by the SDA denomination. I am part of a loose association of individuals seeking to further the knowledge and understanding of God. I do not follow the teachings of any other leader or ministry. I follow only the Bible.

Wherever possible, this ministry avoids entering into any controversy or confrontation on the truth I believe from the Bible. I only present these topics when an interest is shown in the subject of a deeper understanding of God's Law. It is the work of the Holy Spirit to draw others to greater truth. God also appoints prophets to do the work of calling His people to reformation and revival. I do not step out ahead of God's leading.

6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
Hosea 4:6
I do not sell anything. (There are books available at cost from independent sellers.) I do not charge for anything I do. I do not claim copyright on anything I have written. Everything I have written is released to Public Domain. The truth of God is to be sought at all cost and shared freely with all.
8 ... freely ye have received, freely give.
Matthew 10:8

I am studying deeply the Old Testament roots of Christianity. The name IAUA (ee-ah-oo-ah) is a spelling and pronunciation I have researched for my best understanding of the pronunciation of YHWH. This is explained in detail in the chapter The Sacred Holy Name of God and the book Sacred Name IAUA.

About the Ministry Logo

The logo of the ministry is the name of God in modern Hebrew script. The script is white which represents purity. The Latin script, which transliterates the name of God is gold, which represents the riches of God's truth. The background is royal blue which represents God's law. The borders of purple represent the royalty of the King of Kings and scarlet represents the blood of the Lamb. This color scheme is from God's sanctuary and is described in numerous places.

1 And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD commanded Moses.
2 And he made the ephod of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
Exodus 39:1-2
The design of the logo is intended to remind the viewer of the breastplate and the plate of the crown of the High Priest.
8 And he made the breastplate of cunning work, like the work of the ephod; of gold, blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.
9 It was foursquare; they made the breastplate double: a span was the length thereof, and a span the breadth thereof, being doubled.
Exodus 39:8-9
30 And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote upon it a writing, like to the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.
31 And they tied unto it a lace of blue, to fasten it on high upon the mitre; as the LORD commanded Moses.
Exodus 39:30-31
The four tassels are the personal visible witness, specified by God, of the believer who follows all the Law of God, which includes the part called the Law of Moses.
37 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
38 Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue:
39 And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of the LORD, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring:
40 That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.
41 I am the LORD your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: I am the LORD your God.
Numbers 15:37-41

About the Author

Eliau is the pen name of Frank T. Clark. I use a pen name because this ministry and the books are not about me. I am not seeking to promote myself. The pen name is a transliteration of the original Hebrew for Elijah. The picture on the back cover of the introductory book is also for very specific purposes, which are not about promoting my face or me. I am an ultraconservative, lifetime, fifth-generation, Seventh-day Adventist believer. No religion has the whole truth or is the exclusive source of truth. Each individual accepts truth as they study the Bible to understand for themselves.

I describe myself as an ultraconservative because my belief goes beyond adhering to just the current teachings of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination. I believe errors have crept into the teachings of the denomination. I seek a return to the truth revealed to the early Adventist denomination there is "New Light" in God's Law we must seek. I seek a continued growth beyond the current complacent (Laodicean) attitude of the denomination to return to the primitive godliness of the Messiah, the disciples, and the apostles.

A few years ago I was awakened to the renewed realization this world is going to end soon. While renewing my study of the Bible I was led to see "Present Truth" I was not originally taught to see. These truths are critical to "Preparing for the End of Time".

It is my purpose to point you to truth in the Bible, which is often overlooked. It is my intent and expectation you will study the Bible about this for yourself. It is my prayer the Holy Spirit will guide you.

13 When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth... He will show you things to come.
John 16:13 (FTCABE)

Author's Background

Please understand, I am only a student of the Bible. I am a disciple (a person who is a pupil or an adherent of the doctrines of another) and apostle (a passionate adherent; a strong supporter) of the Messiah. I am not a preacher or bible worker or anything else. I have not been taught the Biblical languages. I have never attended a seminary, though I have had Bible classes at a university which included a seminary.

This is not an apology or a boast. These are simple statements of fact. It is my desire and intention to be accurate and honest.

I have studied the Bible since I was a child. My studies have grown more intense and extensive for many years. My understanding is not perfect or complete. I am always learning and growing in understanding. These things I present are my best understanding so far.

In spite of intensive Bible training while growing up, I discovered new Bible truths as a middle age adult. This has given me greater sympathy and understanding for others who also were not taught all Bible truth. It is a great shock to learn new major truths after years of believing I was following the whole Bible.

These presentations are a work in progress. They are not polished works. There will be ongoing revisions to the words and ideas as my study progresses. I am eager for your feedback and discussion.

I must apologize in advance, I am not a good example of the Messiah or His teachings. God is still working on me to become a more effective witness. In particular, I struggle with being critical and judgmental. I have much to learn about kindness and understanding. Please look past my failings and consider the truths I try to present.

Personal Testimony

I was born and raised a multi-generational Seventh-Day Adventist. Most of my educational years were spent in SDA schools. I was baptized into the SDA denomination about the age of 12 (1965). I was disfellowshipped by the SDA denomination around 1975. I continued attending the SDA denomination and was re-baptized around 1977. I was again threatened with disfellowship by the SDA denomination in 1991. I was so disheartened by the criticism, suspicion and accusations, I told them they could just drop my membership. They quickly complied.

I was not perfect and was definitely a sinner in need of a Saviour and help. Instead of help I received criticism, judgment and censure. I was given the example the church is a hotel for saints, not a hospital for sinners. I am still not perfect and am definitely a sinner in need of a Saviour.

My treatment in the second disfellowship seemed so superficial, callous and uncaring I lost heart and ceased attending church. It was only a few weeks before I deeply missed the Christian fellowship, congregational singing and worship of the church service. No matter how I was treated by a few Adventist denomination leaders, I never blamed God. I had been attending Christian Music Concerts at a local Evangelical Congregational (EC) church. I began attending church there and found a great deal of Christian love and acceptance.

Initially, the high level of tolerance and acceptance by the members and leadership of the EC church made doctrinal differences seem unimportant and I became a member. I often found myself able to witness of greater Biblical truth to the members of the EC church. I often spoke of the truth of the state of the dead. Even the Sabbath was a topic of occasional interest to some in the church. Over the years as the leadership changed the doctrinal conflicts increased and became more troubling.

I was the Sunday School leader and Sunday School teacher for a period of time. The membership became increasingly resistant to my encouragement to greater Bible study. One member expressed a general opinion this way. "I come to church to relax and listen to a nice Bible story. I don't want to have to think and study." I have never before heard it expressed so clearly, but how often is the attitude of many church members the same? How often do members skip the study and come only for the preaching?

Amazingly, some of the most troubling sins with which I struggled were overcome through the power of God after I left the SDA denomination. Satan was leading me astray with new sins of bitterness toward the SDA denomination. I have now learned to forgive the denomination with its failings in the same way God forgives me with my failings. I am now reconciled to the Seventh-day Adventist denomination. I was rebaptized June 25, 2005.

Personal Calling

I returned to attending the SDA church in the fall of 2002. I resigned my membership in the EC church January 2003. I heard the calling of the Fourth Angel's Message.

1 And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory.
2 And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird.
3 For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
Revelation 18:1-4

A major inspiration for my calling was two books from Bible Explorations. The books are "The Church Triumphant, New Light, and the 144,000" and "An Innovative Approach to Holy History" (Disclaimer) by Elder John L. VanDenburgh. I received these books in the summer of 2002 from my brother and his wife, who is Elder VanDenburgh's daughter.

I have attended many different churches and I have studied many religions. I have always believed, practiced, and taught the message of the SDA denomination. Whatever concerns I have for the problems in the SDA denomination, it is the primary organization through which God works.

22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Hebrews 10:22-25

Personal Belief

I now believe the statutes of God's law were not shadowy types to pass away with the sacrifice of the Saviour. ({RH, May 6, 1875 par. 10} {1BC 1104.6} {ST April 15, 1875}) Many current SDA teachings are actually statutes. Sometimes what appears to me to be error is taught by some. This will be judged by God and the church body.

I also believe we must not argue and cause division in the church. I have studied carefully the dissension in the early church about the statutes (Acts 15 and Galatians). I have also studied the writings of Ellen White extensively about dissension and unity in the church.

I initially felt, as many do, it was my responsibility to force this truth on others in the church. I initially felt angry and wanted to reject the church as it was rejecting what I understood. I understand now Satan is using this truth to cause disruption and drive people to reject the church.

The opening of the heart to the revelation of new light to individuals and to the church is the work of the Holy Spirit. God provides prophets to perform this work. Unless a person has the love of God in their hearts and is called by the Holy Spirit, they need to consider carefully their actions and their responsibility.

My actions as a true Israelite, completely following God to the best of my ability, are a continual silent witness to the church. The tassels in particular are God's perfect witness. When anyone expresses an interest, I will gladly witness directly to them. Otherwise I wait for God's leading.

Personal Commitment

I was laid off from work about October 10, 2003. I immediately committed myself to a full-time work of Bible research, Bible study, meditation, and prayer while looking for other work. I have long been a student of the Bible. My passion these last few years has been eschatology (end time events). My study and understanding in prophecy and eschatology has advanced considerably.

I have always shared my understandings with those around me. I have been led to share my understandings with those who are seeking information on the internet. First, my website was updated (2004-04-12) and expanded with end time information. Later, I was called to assist others with website development. Finally, I created a new website (2004-06-07) which is being continually expanded with end time information. After three and a half years God led me to print a book of my studies. The first edition of this book was released on Pentecost in 2008.

The job market did not provide any opportunities for employment in my field of experience near my home. I think of my first year unemployed as my sabbatical year. I believe God had guided me to a full-time ministry of providing information through the internet and assisting others in preparation for the end of time.

I also believe He had guided me to an intense preparation of my heart to follow His truth. I studied hard and learned more and more about what it really means to lead a spirit-filled life. I know I have much to learn about practicing the love of God. I have much to learn about trusting in God.

The first year I supported myself on my retirement savings. I closed my retirement account. When my finances reached bottom, I put my home on the market and began to feel led by God to consider radical changes in my life. I strive to learn day by day to trust in God.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
Matthew 6:33-34

My home sold and I didn't even have anywhere to go. I learned more and more about living day by day as God leads. My expectation was to continue with service to God in whatever capacity He calls me. Whatever God asks me to do, I will do it with His strength.

As my family and I were about to be out on the street, I received a job offer from Three Angels Broadcasting Network. I immediately accepted the job offer. Changes have been many and times have been rough but more and more I am learning to lean on the Saviour. Along with the continuing trials I have been blessed to do the work to support my family in God's service rather than for the world.
