This is a cronological timeline of the cult. Some of the information sources are annotated at the bottom of the timeline, and referenced throughout the text by number.

To help point readers toward more interesting parts, some of the information has been color coded as follows:

Indication of possible actions with legal issues, or indications of possible endangerment of children's mental or physical health
Cult name changes (real or planned) or additions
Indication regarding faked or false prophecies, or false condemnation of members
Information suggests Warren had misrepresented his intentions or lied to members


Christopher Warren becomes a Mormon (19)
June 27, 1984
Warren has a revelation that he should begin the cult(1).
Mid-1984 - 1985
1986 - 1988
A name of the cult may have been “Restoration Christian Fellowship“.
1986 (or 1988) - 1992
Official name of the cult is indicated to have been Independent Church of Jesus Christ (of Latter-Day Saints) / ICJC. During this time, the cult apparently subscribed to a mix of Mormon, Christian, and Warren-envisioned beliefs. The “Latter-Day Saints” tag phrase ceases to be used in later group names, and the Mormon-aligned beliefs are reportedly dropped from the group’s belief system as well. Warren is seen in a letter dated 1996 to strongly disavow that the group is a “break-off” of any kind from the Mormons.
Cult headquarters is in Summertown, North Oxford, England. Most of the first 17 sections of the “Olive Branch” are written in that building and during this time.
Anne-Lis Warren, originally from Stavanger, Norway, functions as "Presiding Matriarch". They have two children, Rebekkah and David.
around 1988
Anna-Lis leaves the cult. Irén Nitter Pallesen, also originally from Stavanger, Norway, replaces Anne-Lis Warren as Presiding Matriarch. Irén Nitter Pallesen ordained an Eldress, also Pastress of the Oslo, and (later) Moss Local Colonies (congregations) before assuming the position of First Eldress of the (then) "Independent Church". Was also Financial Secretary during unspecified period.
April 6, 1988
The Chavurah Bekorot (or Chewrah Bqor (22)), the "Holy Order", is organised in Oxford, England. In a nutshell, this is the system of beliefs that defines the organization of the group.
Cult begins publishing a journal named “Evening & Morning Star” in Oxford, England, and it continues to be printed after the group headquarters’ move to Norway.
April 1988
Cult headquarters relocates from England to the top floor of Bergsliensgate 14, in Oslo, Norway. They use this facility for about 1 year. Erik Holsjø joins the group in Bergen, Norway. Was active in the group during the “Independent” period. He is made “pro-tem Pastor of the Oslo Local Colony” at an unspecified time.Tommy Vågen of Bergen joins the group. Warren describes him as: “was a keen evangelist and spent much time in his home city on the streets and witnessing from door to door.”
Warren accuses a cult member of being a pedofile, and excludes him from the cult. Former members who were active in the cult at the time feel certain that this accusation was false, and say that when he was excluded, he became extremely depressed and needed psyciatric care (22). Warren pretends in his writings that this man remained on "friendly terms" with the cult, however. The person's duties in the cult are taken up by Gunnar Mjølsvik (2) and Herman Rustad (3) . Warren claims in his writing that the person was replaced "due to illness"
August 1988
Warren appears to officially relocate to Norway, after being delayed in coming due to “membership in another denomination and his call to witness there a little longer before resigning”(1a). One reference has Warren in Oppsal, Oslo with Erik Danielsen within the first few days of arriving, and another has him as arriving in Bergen.
Early 1989
Cult headquarters (Warren's home) relocates to Oppsal, Oslo, Norway. Bulk of “Olive Branch” (sections 23 - 319) are written here.
Most of the Larsen family joins the cult. This includes the father and mother, all of their children except for one male, and the fiancee of one of their daughters.
soon after above
Group rents a meeting room in Rosenborg, Norway for regular use, this rental is maintained for a number of years until a relocation to Ammerud, Norway, in 1992 - 1996.
March 1989
Warren reportedly receives a revelation that East and West Germany are going to be reuinited (4). He handed out pamphlets with this "revelation" at this time (22)
Possibly second half of 1989
Warren was supposed to have temporary, summertime custody of Anna-Lis's two children, but instead of returning the children to their mother at the end of the summer, he kept them. When Anna-Lis went to court to get the children back, he threatened to lie about her in court, and she was too afraid to go forward with the kidnapping charges. She dropped the case, and Warren was awarded custody of their two children David and Rebekkah. (22)
Cult meetings were being held in the Oslo apartment of a woman named M.R. Cortes (22).
Mil Jan Wind and wife Ingefred, from Aarhus, Denmark, join the group, and are active in organizing the group’s “first computer technology”.
The cult visits the Wind family in Denmark, has meetings there, and hands out pamphlets in the town of Aarhus. They rented a cabin with a swimming pool and did re-baptisms there (22).
"Mission trips" to England and the USA. This may have been when Warren went to collect the Rebekkah and David children from their mother in the United States after the brief custody battle. He is also reported to have gone to his father's funeral and called it a "mission-trip", using "church" funds for these private trips (22)
Nov. 9, 1989
Berlin wall in East Germany opened to unrestricted transit between East and West Germany. Warren claims that this was a fulfilled prophecy on his behalf, and writes “This is an example of one of many of the New Covenant Church of God’s revelations being fulfilled. Others await fulfilment according to their time.” (5)
Around 1990
M.R. Cortes leaves the cult and moves to the United States to live with her husband. Chris condemed her for doing so, and said her marriage was not blessed by God. (22)
Warren's writings state that “New Covenant Christians” receive a “revelation” predicting the yet-to-occur breakup of Yugoslavia. More precise information about the date of this revelation’s reception is not specified. (12). The political process for this happening is already underway at the time, as in March and April of this year, Slovania and Croatia hold first multi-party elections in almost 50 years. Parties in favor of national sovereignties within Yugoslavia win that election. In mid to late 1990, Macedonia and Bosnia-Herzegovina elections are won by parties in favor of national sovereignties within Yugoslavia. The break-up of Yugoslavia is a long process that occurs from 1990 to 1997.
Around this time a number of nation-related propecies are made (20):

* “The nation of Czecho-Slovakia shall eventually prosper and remain as one state” appears to have been the original text of one prophecy. Czechoslavakia did break up into different countries, however. This text appears in the cult's Olive Branch book, though its appearance in the printed version has an insertion and a lengthy footnote that attempts to explain away a reader's potential observation that this was a false prophecy. 

* Germany is prophesied to eventually buy back the area of North East Prussia

* Canada is prophesied to eventually become one country with the United States

* Unrest prophesied for Poland, and Poland will lose what they gained in conquest plus more if the people do not embrace a higher light and repent
“Mission” trip to (East?) Germany which reportedly included some drama. Warren was eager to have a particular woman as one of his wives, and appeared to some of the members to have planned the "mission" trip to Berlin so that the two of them could spend the week together. At the last minute, the woman gave her travel tickets to a male member named Terje Bonkerud and stated that he should go instead. Warren did not appreciate this, but because it was supposed to be a "mission" trip, he could not object. While the pair was in Berlin, Warren treated Terje very poorly, and Terje was under the impression that Warren was angry with him for the whole week. Terje felt that it was strange that Warren used a lot of time and money to buy what appeared to him to be "Nazi" uniforms and effects, which was in contrast with the reason they were supposed to be there (which was to spread the gospel).

On the way out of the country, Terje is stopped at the border and asked why he was visiting. His luggage and personal effects were not searched (22). Warren later makes exaggurated claims about the trip through the border in his writings. He claims that before going through customs in Friedrichstraße, Warren puts all of the literature into his own backpack (claims he “received word from the Holy Spirit” to do this), and Bonkerud is “arrested”, searched by agents but then released. Warren indicates that distributing the literature was illegal there at the time.
Mission” trips made to Stavanger, Norway. According to Warren, two “missions” reportedly were set up but quickly subsided. A former member of the cult reports that there was never actually any real member base in Stavanger as a part of any such "missions". (22)

These trips were visits to Iren Pallesen's family in Stavanger. One particular trip of interest was arranged but then cancelled. The mother of a 12 year old girl suspected that Warren only wanted to make the trip because he wanted to take her child with him and spend time with her. When the mother asked Warren about this, Warren denied it, but the trip was cancelled. Warren subsequently had a revelation about the mother's lack of trust. (22). A few years later, at the age of 15, this same child does become "engaged" to Warren as one of his wives.

“Mission” trip is then made to Newcastle, England

A trip to Helsinki, Finland is mentioned
July 3, 1991
Last sermon given to the supposed (22), to-be-abandoned mission in Stavanger, Norway (6)
August, 1991
Cult headquarters moved to Våler, near Moss, in Østfold, Norway. Headquarters is used for a little over a year, and is named in Norwegian “Lille Kadesj”, English “Little Kadesh”.
The Wind family (Denmark) leaves the cult due to contradictory prophecies by Warren. (22). Warren has apparently lied about the event in writing. He calls it “The First Rebellion” and pretends that Mil Jan Wind sets up his own group, independent from Warren’s. Warren describes this effort to make an independent group as a failure. He claims that the Wind family was briefly “reconciled” with the group afterwards, but then left in 1992.
A woman that Warren had wanted to become one of his wives fell in love with another man, a cult member named Erik Danielsen. They began dating and were a couple for a short period. The woman had not been a member of the cult prior to this, but now she began attending cult meetings and became a member. Warren wanted the woman for himself, however, and kicked Danielsen out of the cult, accusing him of being a homosexual. Then Warren had a revelation about the woman, and told her that she would never be happy if she didn`t marry him. The revelations about Erik and the woman were included in the original version of The New Olive Branch, but they may have been removed. (22) This referenced woman did later become one of Warren's wives.

Warren, however, claims in his writings that Erik Danielsen, who briefly served as “Second Elder”, was excommunicated from the cult for “immoral conduct”, and that it was relative to a “Second Rebellion”. Erik Danielsen is supposed to have formed a group independent from Warren’s group with former members from Bergen, Norway. Warren describes him as “…known in NCCG history as the leader of the “Second Rebellion” and for his success in virtually wiping out the Local Colony in Bergen”. Warren also describes Danielsen’s group as a failed effort.

A former member of the time states that this "Second Rebellion" and the group that Erik was supposed to have set up did not actually happen, it was, in reality, just one guy getting kicked out. (22)
Prior to 1992
“Mission” trips taken to Hamburg (Germany), Rostock (Germany) and Pozen (Poland).
April 12, 1992
The “Independent Church of Jesus Christ (of Latter-Day Saints) (ICJC)” is dissolved by Warren and replaced by “New Covenant Christ Fellowship (NCCF)”. Warren claims that as a result of this, “Mass defection” from the “Local Bergen Colony” occurs, but that that all members of the “Moss” mission, located in the vicinity of the headquarters in Våler, remain with Warren’s new group. Warren describes: “This conference effectively marked the end of the Bergen Local Colony, all but two of the members refusing to move over into the NCCF. Nearly all of the members from Oslo and the eastern congregations continued.”(7) The two remaining members from Bergen were Gunnar and Aslaug Mjølsvik. (22)
April 13, 2992
Warren writes: “the Presiding Patriarch (8) outlined the new organisation and its purpose. Not only were all the previous scriptures borrowed from the Restoration rejected but the Church’s own revelations were also laid aside so that everyone could make a fresh start and come in through the door of the Bible alone”
April, 1992
Production of the “Evening & Morning Star” journal ceases, replaced by production of the “New Covenant Christian Witness, also briefly known as Zion’s New Covenant Christian Witness”. Journal name is later shortened to New Covenant Witness (NCW). Journals printed monthly or sometimes bi-monthly.
Soon after above
Warren does “preaching tour of the western Ukraine”, claims that events on this tour had been forseen in visions and was a confirming sign (9). In the town of L’viv, preaching was done at a city hall, and it was reportedly broadcast on L’viv’s local television station. Warren retains a video of the televised event. Several people in this town are reportedly converted to the group, and the “L’viv-Ukraine” local mission is established. Emma Chaikovska, presumably one of the locals, is named as the “pro tem pastress” of the mission. Warren then proceeded to preach in the town of Novovolynsk. He first preached in a prison and then at a Baptist church. At the prison, Warren got to know a Russian prisoner named Vasily Ermarkov. Later, Ermarkov was transferred to Chisinau, in Moldova, and according to Warren, started his own ministry. This ministry reportedly becomes a member of “B’rit Chadashah Evangelical Association”, which Warren says was “established by NCCF as a meeting ground for independent churches with similar programs.”While at a “Soviet industrial memorial in Galicia”, all of the NCCG printed tracts brought for the trip are given out in the first night.Warren claims that the interior of the Baptist Church at Novovolynsk, and one of the people he met there, were identical in appearance to the way they had been revealed in a prior vision (9).Novovolynsk Baptist Church establishes a “formal link” to NCCG, reportedly the first mainstream church to do so.While on the trip, Warren becomes ill due to drinking the tap water.

The visit to the town of L'viv specified above may be when he met a young woman named Marina. She was 15 years old, and Warren wanted to have her as one of his wives. She and her mother came to visit the cult in Våler, a trip which Warren described later as the people from the “L’viv-Ukraine Mission” visiting the headquarters. Warren told Marina's mother that Marina could come and live with them, and go to school in Norway. They made plans for Marina to move to Våler. After the mother and daughter had left, one of the cult members sent mail to Marina's mother and warned her that Warren wanted to have the teenager become one of his wives. Marina's mother believed the letter, and Marina did not move in with Warren. (22).
soon after above
Missionary trips to Paris, Belgrade, Eastern Germany (Rostock), and western Poland (Poznan/Posen) (13)
Trip to Leningrad (St.Petersburg) and the Baltic states cancelled due to lack of financial resources and “upheavals”.
Official name of the cult for the specified years is stated to have been New Covenant Christian Fellowship / NCCF
3 former cult members/associates have reported information to me which gives the appearance of being realistic, consistent, and believeable, indicating that Warren committed an unprosecuted,  non-violent rape of a 15 year old girl. During the rape, the girl is reported to have felt very confused and didn't understand what was going on. The parents of the girl are indicated to not have been aware of the rape at the time it occurred. The age of consent in Norway is 16.
A cult member went to the doctor and was told that she had a tumor on one of her ovaries. In response, Warren issued some sort of patriarchal blessing to the woman and said that she should praise the Lord because the tumor had already been healed and was gone. (Three years later, after leaving the cult, the woman got checked by a doctor again and the tumor was still there and in fact had grown in size, and it was removed surgically). (22)
At some point, Warren had a "revelation" specifying that a particular wife of his was going to get pregnant with a baby girl who should be named Maria. The wife became pregnant, and thoughout the pregnancy Warren indicated that he had seen this baby "Maria" in several visions, and that "Maria" was the baby being carried by this wife at the time. Unbeknownst to him, the baby was actually a boy. During the pregnancy, the wife was made to take very visible walks with the cult member Herman Rustad through the Norwegian town of Våler. This was to deliberately create the incorrect impression among neighbors that Herman was the father of the child, not Warren.. When the child was born and it was a boy, Warren became depressed and was seen burning his books and pamphlets in his back yard. He persisted in not visiting the wife and child in the hospital. He said that he had prophecied false and could not be a leader any more. He passed leadership to member Gunnar at the time, but their relationship was such that during this stint of leadership, Warren was directing Gunnar in what to do. A short time later, Warren said he had been tricked by false angels. He had a revelation that said he had to be more careful about checking the source of his revelations – so he repented, and evrything was fine again. He continued to use his old revelations again, but he now considered the Book of Mormon to be removed from the proper scriptures. The members of the time started having serious doubts about Warren after this incident. (22) Years later, this wife's second child with him was a girl which he named Maria.

When the wife went to the hospital to deliver the child, Warren told her to lie to the hospital officials and tell them that she did not know who the father of the baby was (22).
February 1994
Mission trip to Bulgaria, Warren preaches at two pentacostal churches and one baptist church. Dr. Theodor Angelov, President of the Baptist Union of Bulgaria, is in attendance. Two people are converted to the group, and the “Sofia-Bulgaria” mission is formed. Some time after this, decision is made to restrict mission trips to inside Scandinavia and the UK, to make better use of limited resources.
April 1994
“Holy Week” celebrations are held in Oslo, Norway. Meetings are held in the “former Independent Church chapel Oslo”, where Warren reports “many dramatic spiritual manifestations occurred.” The drama was that Herman Rustad claimed to have seen Jesus standing in the room. (22)
Summer, 1994
Warren sent two cult members on a "mission trip" to Turku, Finland. The trip had been intended by Warren to last a certain amount of time, but the members had not been given enough money to stay that long. Warren was angry with them for returning early. (22) Warren also mentions a trip to Helsinki, Finland which might have had occurred around this time.
According to Warren, cult membership existed in three areas of Norway: Oslo, Hurdal and Bjørkelangen. Meetings were held at a member's home in Rømskog.
Warren announces the future organization of a Sunday School for children, the School of Taphim.
Winter, 1994
Group aquires use of a “Lutheran Chapel in Ammerud”, Norway, for meetings, by Warren's description. This location was the chapel in the basement of a retirement home in Oslo (22).
Around December, 1994
Irén Nitter Pallesen leaves the cult, taking her and Warren's child Joshua with her. Warren continues to use her name in association with the cult and in cult records for years after she has been gone, pretending that she is still a member. (22)
May 15, 1995
Warren receives a revelation for the group to form a new Patriarchate (14)
July 9, 1995
A meeting which Warren describes as “spectacular and symbolically potent”  occurs where the new Patriarchate is appointed held in a member's home in Rømskog, Norway (described by Warren as "the home of the Bjørkelangen NCCF)”. 12 men and women are “called” to form the new leadership.

A former member who was active at the time reports that nothing spectacular actually happened at the meeting. There were 12 members in the cult at the time, and they were all named as leaders in the organization. (22)
July 10, 1995
Warren has a revelation to hold a “Solemn Assembly” meeting in the future. (15)
Summer, 1995
Throughout this summer, cult members were actively looking for places that could become "Kadesh", the cult's future home/compound. A couple of times the whole cult went together to look at places. (22)
October 15, 1995
Warren wrote that the cult holds a meeting called “The Solemn Assembly”, in Bergen. Warren states that the meeting contained “…a holy proclamation (v.3), a last opportunity for a reconciliation with those who had left the Church (vv.4-7), the reconsecration of all the Church’s banners (v.1), and the chance to receive the Word of the Lord directly (v.2) Group is called “New Covenant Church of God” for the first time.Source material states: “This was the very last time that the whole Church gathered together. The events which were to follow two months later were to leave destruction in its wake, eventually causing the Church to move out of Norway and to a new beginning in Sweden.”

During one of the meetings like this (held in Bergen), Warren spoke so much about angry, threatening angels with swords that the children within the cult became frightened.(22)

A former member states that Warren had an interest in moving to Sweden because Norway's child welfare system were concerned about his children David and Rebekkah, and that if they had stayed in Norway, the children would probably have been taken away from Warren. (22)
Late December, 1995
The cult effectively breaks up.

The majority of the cult members determine that Warren had been faking his revelations about them. They compared notes among one another, and discovered that in each case where God had seemed to reveal things to Warren about them, Warren had actually gotten the information from a different person among them.

The cult members were at first afraid that Warren might still be a true prophet, so they began privately studying the Bible in an effort to understand what being a true vs. false prophet entails. As a result, they became reasonably certain that Warren was indeed a false prophet. At a cult meeting, Øyvind M. Larsen openly discussed the conclusions, and the cult was effectively dissolved by its members.

Warren at that point began having lots of revelations about how dangerous most of the cult members were supposed to be, and through fear tactics, caused a few members to stay with him (whereas most of the cult members left Warren at that time). (22).

Warren refers to this event as “The Third Rebellion” or “The Larson Revolt”, also called simply a “disasterous schism”. Warren claims that this “rebellion” was caused by “existentialist heresy which maintained that all truth is relative to the individual and that no organised Church was required”. Warren’s source material for this event has an obviously spiteful tone, calling them “rebels” and the like.
January, 1996
Member Trond Standnes' wife dies of cancer, and Warren claims that the death was God's punishment for her not being obedient enough to her husband. Trond does not appreciate this conclusion and left the cult as a result (22). Warren refers to this incident as Trond turning down an offer to be appointed as the group’s “Third Patriarch” and leaving, and is described by Warren as “A former Jehovah’s Witness stantched out of the arms of the Mormon Church by early New Covenant Christian missionaries”.

Only 5 adult members and one 17-year old remain with the cult after this split, and situation is stressful.

The former cult member who in 1993 had been told that the tumor on her ovary had been miraculously healed goes to the doctor to have the ovary checked, and the tumor is still there and has grown, and the tumor is removed surgically (22).
During these years, the cult members had been directed to pay as much money as possible to sustain a childrens home in Madras, India. (on top of the money they gave directly to the cult.) When they left the cult in 1996, they tried to find out the real situation with the children's home. Soon after inquiries about the children's home began, Chris allegedly got a letter from India stating that there had been some form of natural disaster and the childrens home had burned to the ground. The whole project was at that point considered dissolved within the cult and the remaining congregation stopped sending money for it.

The former members noted that Warren began having financial problems as soon as they left. He was observed to be having trouble paying utility bills and the mortgage for his house. They came to the conclusion that money they had been giving for the supposed children's home in India had actually been kept by Warren.
April 1, 1996
General Conference held in Bergen to discuss future of group. A “Consitition for B’rit Chadashah Assembly of Yahweh (BCEA)” is created.
April 2, 1996
Warren has a revelation, and it is decided not to officially reorganize and rename the group as “New Covenant Church of God (NCCG)” yet. Warren reports having had many more visions after this event.
1992 - 1996
Warren indicates that the cult has supposedly not had success in its evangelism efforts in Bergen, Norway during this timeframe.
June 8, 1996
Warren receives revelation for the cult to shift its evangelism efforts away from foreign “Mission” trips to “Cyber-Evangelism”. (10)
October 15, 1996
Warren sells “Little Kadesh” headquarters in Østfold, Norway, in preparation to “gather to Zion”. Used temporary headquarters named “Kadesjbrua or Bridge to Kadesh” where internet work and publishing continued. This sale is later referenced in the source material as having been done to finance the first printed edition of the Olive Branch. A former member reports that it's likely that he he had to sell the house because it was too expensive to keep after most of the cult members had left and stopped giving him money (22).
Late 1996
The cult becomes active on the internet. First website published at URL . In total, about 23 websites are made, which are eventually combined into the large “” website.
1996 - ?
Official name of the group for the specified years is stated to have been/be: The New Covenant Church of God / NCCG
B’rit Chadashah Assembly of Yahweh / BCAY
In Warren's writing at this time, he is still pretending that Irén Nitter Pallesen is functioning as a Deaconess for the cult. She had left years before, however. (22)

Mission trip to Zürich, Switzerland. Source material mentions that a short-lived mission in Turgi, Switzerland, had been set up before.
April, 1997
In search of a new headquarters/”gathering” place, Warren visits a location on a small island named “Lepsøy”, near Bergen, Norway, but does not choose it.
June 26, 1997
Future compound in Sweden seen for sale in a brochure, and is visited by Warren for the first time.
June 27, 1997
Offer made for the future compound
June 29, 1997
Warren leaves temporary headquarters (Little Kadesh)
July 1997
Compound purchased in the Värmland area of Sweden. The size of the compound is not specified in the source material, but the owned woodland surrounding it is measured in acres. The compound is described by Warren as: “Kadesh-biyqah, which in the Hebrew means, “Holy City in the Valley”, is the first of the New Covenant Church of God’s (B’rit Chadashah Assembly of Yahweh’s) proto-Firstborn Colonies. It was purchased, by the grace of Yahweh, in July 1997 and is administered by the Holy Order or Chavurat Bekorot, which in the Hebrew means “Community of the Firstborn”. Kadesh-biyqah, located in the diaspora of the tribe of Ephraim (10 Tribes of Israel) in Northern Europe, and specifically in Sweden, is the beginning of the work of gathering the Ten Tribes of Israel and the establishment of miniature Patriarchal Christian communities whose purpose is to act as place of refuge from the surrounding culture and a spiritual community whose aim is to prepare disciples of the Lord Yah’shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) both for the coming tribulation and for the Millennial Order. Our goal is to be partially self-sustaining through market gardening, web design and other projects. Children are homeschooled in three languages (Swedish, Norwegian and English) to a high standard and enjoy good ITC resources together with a library of over 7,000 multilingual books. Kadesh-biyqah is a caring community and welcomes young and old, our most senior resident being 90. Permanent membership is conditional upon being debt-free, adherence to high moral, ethical and spiritual standards and is reviewed annually. The land and buildings are owned by the community and are leased to members as a stewardship. Visitors must be recommended by an NCCG Pastor and receive an invitation from the Kadesh-biyqah leadership.”
Fall, 1997
The first printing of the Olive Branch, 1000 copies, is completed by a Norwegian publisher and delivered to Warren.
November, 1998
Norway was supposed to have been destroyed by a financial catastrophe according to an earlier prophecy made by Warren (16). An even earlier version of this prophecy was that there was supposed to be an earthquake, originating in Hurdal, which is where most of the Larsen family lived. It would come as God's punishment to the Larsen couple. The revelation had been changed to be relative to Norway in general when the earthquake didn't happen. (22)
Gunnar Mjølsvik(2) and Aslaug Hagen(11) move to the group’s headquarters in Sweden. With this move, all members of the group, except for one, had relocated from Norway to the compound in Sweden. A former member reports that the one member who remained behind is one who had never been allowed to live with the cult, apparently because he has no money.

Group adopts “Sabbatarian” beliefs, joins the “Messianic Israel Alliance (MIA)”.
August, 1999
Timeframe in which Warren states: “Yahweh commanded that this end-time work of gathering the firstborn should begin”. This is related to the intent to establish compounds. (18)
Early 2000
Warren states: “…we were visited by a prophet from the United States who had been given the authority by Yahweh some 30 years before to bless and administer a special Lord’s Supper which would be the instrument by which the end-time harvest would take place.” End-time harvest in this context is related to the gathering of people into 12 compounds. (17)
February 1, 2001
Group reorganized somewhat to include “New Covenant Ministries” concept. This is currently visible online at . Some of the key points of the reorganization is to allow for: "* i. Preparatory Firstborn Colonies where total consecration and communal living may be taught, learned and lived, preparatory to a final gathering on the eve of the Great Tribulation to:
* ii. Twelve hidden divinely protected international Cities of Rrefuge which shall pass safely through the Great Tribulation, which shall emerge at the beginning of the Millennium to bring order to, and rule with Christ, the survivors of the holocaust that shall have decimated the world and destroyed the world system." Also, it states "“The end-time Church of God will consist of an invisible network of (eventually) underground house churches under apostolic authority and leadership.”
December 2002
Deliverance from Demons MSN group (DFD) is established
September 2003
A weekly chat session on Sundays begins to be held using DFD’s MSN chat platform
December 2004
DFD changed from public to private, with satisfactory completion of a questionnaire being required for admittance. Security is cited as the concern that caused the board to be changed. A new MSN group, Deliverance From Demons Reception (DFDR), created as a new, public group which does not require completion of the questionnaire.
March 12 - March 16, 2006
First “Satanist Attack” hoax observed by this author in which Warren pretends over the internet to cult members and internet-based followers that “satanists” make a physical assault against the NCCG compound. Portrayed attack is dramatic, with many “satanists” reported as being killed by God all around the area of the cult's compound as well as around the world.

Warren wrote on the internet that during this "satanist attack", one of his children had "visions" of demons in the forest surrounding the compound.
April 4, 2006
Gunnar Mjølsvik dies in a local hospital
May 5 - May 7, 2006
Second “Satanist Attack” hoax observed by this author in which Warren pretends to cult members and internet involved people that “satanists” make a physical assault against the cult's compound. This time, it is a much less dramatic portrayal in terms of physical presence of satanists, although satanists are indicated to have surrounded the property and been killed by God on that Sunday night (May 7),
June 10, 2006
Local newspaper “Nya Wermlands-Tidningen” (NWT) publishes a lengthy article about the cult in which it is referenced as “Destructive, Dangerous, and Isolated”. Language of article is Swedish.
Summer, 2006
Permission to homeschool school-age children at the cult's compound (”Hillringberg Skolen”) is at least initially denied by Arvika Kommun (government for Arvika, Sweden area). Homeschooling for school-age children at the compound is disallowed for the school year of 2006-2007. Arvika Kommun mandates that the school-age children are required to attend the nearby public school in Glava, Sweden. They were still prevented from going to school by Warren, however, who continued to claim that he was "homeschooling" them.

“” web site moved to another web provider. At that time, much of the formerly-available web content was not available on the new site. The old site was spidered and archived by this site’s author, but due to its size (52MB without images).
Week of August 13, 2006
Significant amount of material removed from “nccg critics” message board in the “nccgcybercommunity” group site, including all references to “nccg_concern”, a failed, false prophecy, and Warren's “Methodologies and Tactics of Satanists to Destroy Reputations” article. Written attacks on exit counselors still remain. This old message board content has been archived elsewhere on this site.
September 21, 2006
“MLT” MSN group announced by Warren as for: “…baptised members of Mishpachah Lev-Tsiyon and for those seeking baptism/membership (serious catechumens) whom we have come to know well from this main NCCG Cyber Community Group”.People who are not “serious” or well-known enough are advised not to apply for membership.
October 15, 2006
The last cult chat occurs (due to MSN shutting down its entire chat room service)
October 29, 2006
Cult member Derek R. officially leaves the cult, changes the message board main pages, and makes posts on message boards announcing his leaving. Posts are deleted within hours by Warren. Discussion of Derek within the main “nccgcybercommunity” message board is disallowed by Warren after this, through the non-approval of messages as a moderator. Members were instead redirected to the less-public “MLT” MSN group for such discussions.

Warren later makes many ficticious, accusatory claims about Derek.
November 4, 2006
Chatroom restarted using “” service. Includes stipulation “This will initially be a private group for known members of the Cyber Community and Deliverance Groups”. This is probably due to the questioning at the time regarding Derek’s leaving and a desire to hide the information and discussions from him.
November 6, 2006
Warren announces eventual migration of “nccgcybercommunity” members to the new MSN group “MLT” ( Message board users who do not succesfully migrate are indicated to be dropped from the membership of the boards.

Summer, 2007
A woman in her early 20's comes to the compound in Sweden from her home in southern Europe. Warren had at some earler time indicated that he might legally marry her so that she can legally stay in Sweden, but this marriage does not happen. After at least a few weeks of living at the compound, she returns to her home country.
Summer, 2007
A woman around 30 years old who had effectively been one of Warren's wives since 1989 moves out of the compound and back to her home country (Norway), taking her child with her.

(1a) The name of this denomination is not specified in the source material written by Warren. This author has not found much documentation relative to exactly what this denomination might have been. Circumstantial evidence found in other locations suggests that this involvement could have been related to: * cult being renamed from “Restoration Christian Fellowship” in England to “Independent Church of Jesus Christ (of Latter-Day Saints) / ICJC.” in Norway (this could technically fulfill the “membership in another denomination” reference in the source material). * involvement with the “St. Albans Private Tutorial College” he founded in Oxford * the Latter-Day Saint (Mormon) movement
