Readers of Beyond Today magazine share their thoughts in the May/June 2023 issue.

Responses to “The Biblical Identity of Britain’s Royal Family”

I have read your magazines for years. Although I take exception with some of your positions, I have more often been enlightened. For that I thank you. I read the January-February edition with skepticism. I have as much respect for Britain’s “royal” family as I do Catholicism. Both are nothing more than pomp and circumstance. No dissection and explanation will ever change that.

I would like to thank you for the very informative magazines that you print. Your latest on “The Biblical Identity of Britain’s Royal Family” I certainly enjoyed reading and learned from it. So much so, that I sent your link to a friend of mine, and was shocked by her reply. She sent me links arguing that the royal family were reptilians. I was at a loss for words. I would also like to say thank you for your study guides. I have the majority of them which I have read and re-read. They have helped me understand God’s Word so much better. In fact you have opened my eyes to so much.

Descent from King David has not ensured righteous heritage. Recall that most of Judah's kings were evil. We await the true righteous king Jesus Christ. It is further true that demons rule behind the governments of this world, but the reptilian conspiracy theory is utter nonsense.


Response to “Britain’s Coronation Symbols: The Astounding Story”

I seek clarifications concerning the parallels between the coronations of kings of Israel and the U.K. Coronations of kings of Israel were performed by high priests appointed to the office by virtue of being Aaronic lineage. The coronations of kings/queens of England are performed by the archbishop of the Church of England. So does this church, which doesn’t teach observance of the Sabbath (and other Holy Days), represent God’s Church? Is the spiritual head of this church appointed by God?

From the Internet

Thank you for your question. The focus of our article was on the biblical symbolism and ancient precedence of the modern coronation of kings and queens. And, as noted in the issue, previous members of the royal family believed they were indeed descended from and could trace their lineage back to King David.

However, in answer to your question, the Anglican Church does not represent the Church Jesus Christ founded. Its teachings are too divergent from Scripture, including, as you mentioned, Sabbath observance and many other doctrines. To learn more, interested readers can download or request the study guide The Church Jesus Built.

Are We Living in the Time of the End?

I’m writing to thank you for the booklet Are We Living in the Time of the End? I have read a lot of booklets from a couple of different sources, but I want to let you know that this is one of the best I have read, other than my Bible. You have really done a super job on it. It really makes the point and is very clear and well-researched. I know I will read it again and pass it on. May our Creator bless you for helping us to understand His Word.

Cancellation request

Please don’t send any more literature from your church. I am a believer in the Trinity as written in the Word of God. I rebuke your teachings, as they are not of God but Satan.

From the Internet

Interested readers may wish to download or request our free study guide Is God a Trinity? to compare what the Bible says with this common teaching.
