Dr. Charles L. Pack is the founder, conference director and president of Thy Kingdom Come, Inc. He graduated from high school in Sand Springs, Oklahoma, as the class valedictorian, in 1935. After serving in the U.S. Navy, he attended Moody Bible Institute for four years and was elected Class Speaker of his 1951 graduating class. After over 50 years in ministry, the Louisiana Baptist Theological Seminary gave him an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree.
Pack was the pastor of three churches over a span of 28 years: Lawndale Bible Church, Chicago, IL; First Baptist Temple, Oshkosh, WI; and Faith Baptist Church, Tulsa, OK. Dr. Pack taught prophecy on television for 18 years on 17 channels with a listening audience of 250,000 each Sunday morning. He has graciously escorted over 1,000 people on 25 trips to Israel, Russia and Babylon. He has also authored 29 booklets on prophecy and 15 booklets on Revelation.
Thy Kingdom Come, Inc., of which Dr. Pack is the founder and President, has the goal of reaching “people worldwide with the Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ through the teaching of Bible Prophecy. It is our ministry to alert the Body of Christ to the imminent fulfillment of Bible Prophecy, underscoring the urgency to live, ‘by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God’" (Matthew 4:4). Pack has organized a six-fold ministry outreach to accomplish these goals:
Currently, Pack edits the 12-page, contemporary, newspaper-style, Spirit of Prophecy, newsmagazine, now in its 29th year of publication. The new format features easier to read print and sharper pictures. The newsmagazine includes features like: Questions & Answers, News about Israel, the Church in the News, News about America, and more. Spirit of Prophecy is read in America and 13 other countries.

At one point, Dr. Pack, thought his ministry was over. He had suffered for 7 years with internal bleeding. Twelve trips to the hospital for 49 units of blood did not stop the bleeding. Pack had two emergency surgeries and made two trips to San Antonio to see a specialist in endoscopies to try to find a cure; nothing helped. After fasting, prayer, medication, doctors, surgeries and even 30 gallons of aloe vera juice, the bleeding continued unabated.
Dr. Pack was then introduced to a new diet, called The Hallelujah Diet®, consisting mainly of raw fruits and vegetables, as well as Barleygreen, a natural barley grass. Several months after making these changes to his diet and lifestyle, the internal bleeding stopped and has not returned for years.
As a result of his personal experiences, Charles Pack founded the website, Be In Health. This was to provide answers to questions about Dr. Pack’s medical problems and their cure, as well as questions about a host of other people whose physical ailments have been helped by diet, nutrition, and the use of natural products. The main reason that Dr. Pack founded this website was to provide information about health and offer natural products as a means to achieve better health.
One opinion that resounds whenever Charles Pack is mentioned is that he is just a really, really nice guy. He is genuine and full of heart. He desires to greatly impact the world for the Kingdom of God and his efforts are always to that end. The humble, expectant way he shares the gospel and teaches about prophecy is undeniably motivating and comforting while remaining urgent.
The rapture has no signs which must precede it. It can come at any moment since it will occur before the tribulation! However, what I would call “event-time” has been shortened in our generation. Due to the advance of technology, the time-interval between events has collapsed, causing world events to occur rapidly. It used to take these same events, such as the rise and fall of nations, travel across continents, or the formation of political and economic unions, months and years to materialize. Today, these things happen overnight! This means that the end-time events could happen within the span of the calendar hanging on your wall. “And what I say unto you I say unto all, watch” (Mark 13:3).
