Dear Brethren, When I was a senior in high school, I had a teacher who was well-known for being an avid reader of the newspaper, a teacher who was extremely knowledgeable about current events. He’s probably the only teacher I ever had who asked my parents (at the beginning of the school year), if their son liked to read the newspaper. YES, most of his students liked to read the newspaper after ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I’m resending a “Personal” article written by Mr. Armstrong in April 1962. His letter focuses on a vitally important subject that we all must take seriously! No matter what we face in our lives, we still want to be thankful and grateful to God for the MANY blessings He abundantly gives us! Have a wonderful Sabbath, brethren! Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold April, 1962 ...
Dear Brethren, “Americanism means the virtues of courage, honor, justice, truth, sincerity, and hardihood—the virtues that made America. The things that will destroy America are prosperity-at-any-price, peace-at-any-price, safety-first instead of duty-first, the love of soft living and the get-rich-quick theory of life.” – Theodore Roosevelt Yesterday, Americans celebrated the birth of our nation ...
Dear Brethren, This week, twenty Democratic candidates were on the debate stage (over a two-night period). They hoped to sway potential voters to choose THEM as the party nominee for President of the United States. The war of words will undoubtedly become far more intense in the coming months. Verbal mudslinging will be the every-day standard, right up to the election and beyond. Just how does ...
Dear Brethren, “Brethren, IF we are to be taken to a place of protection from the GREAT TRIBULATION, we shall have to have real faith in Christ and His promises!” (Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong - Brethren and Co-Worker Letter, August 14, 1978.) When I was a young boy, the word “faith” represented nothing more than the name of the church to which a person belonged. Some people belonged to “this faith ...
Dear Brethren, I’ll begin tonight’s letter with a few paragraphs written by Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong in the July, 1964, Plain Truth magazine. The title of the article is “How to be an OVERCOMER.” Spiritual training, to get and KEEP in constant vigilant condition to meet the foe of temptation and sin requires CONTINUOUS, EARNEST, PERSISTENT PRAYER! That is why we are commanded so often to PRAY ...
Dear Brethren, We’ll be observing the Feast of Pentecost this coming Sunday June 9th, as commanded by the Great God. “These are the feasts of the LORD, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times” (Leviticus 23:4). Pentecost pictures the “FIRST-FRUITS” of God’s salvation. (Leviticus 23:15-17; Acts 2:1; James 1:18) God is not working with most people NOW. In fact, it’s not ...
Dear Brethren, Nearly thirty-five years ago, our local Worldwide Church of God pastor recommended that the members of the congregation set a goal of reading the entire Bible from cover to cover at least once in their lifetime. My first thought was, “Oh! That will take years! I’ll be old by the time I finish.” But, the more I thought about his suggestion, the more I thought it was a goal worth ...
Dear Brethren, On June 9th we will be keeping the Feast of Pentecost. Tonight, I’m resending a letter written in 2011. As always, we look forward to fellowshipping with you this Sabbath. Sincerely, Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold May 27, 2011 Dear Brethren, Earlier today, one of our business clients paid their invoice at our credit card terminal. As I was processing the payment, I began ...
Dear Brethren, A few years ago, I read a story that I might share with you. In November 1963, a young lady from Texas by the name of Laura Welch, went through a very tragic experience. She was a young lady attending high school, when she was involved in a very serious automobile accident. From her book, Spoken From The Heart, Laura recounts her story of a time when many roads in Texas were ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I’m sending a letter that was written by Mr. Armstrong in 1968. I condensed his letter somewhat for this evening’s Brethren Letter. If you would like to read the letter in its entirety, it can be found on the internet. Mr. Armstrong gives admonition that is good for us to think about and review. Please have a good night’s rest and wonderful Sabbath. Sincerely, Gary Liebold ...
Dear Brethren, The weekly Sabbath has now begun, and I was thinking about what the “wave sheaf” offering pictures. Also, starting on this specific day (during the Days of Unleavened Bread) we began counting fifty days forward to the Feast of Pentecost (the Feast of Firstfruits, Exodus 23:16). Leviticus 23:10-11 shows us God’s instructions concerning the wave sheaf offering. Speak unto the ...
Dear Brethren, “The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?” (I Corinthians 10:16). Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, instituted the use of unleavened bread and wine as the New Testament symbols for Passover observance. The broken BREAD symbolizes Christ’s broken body as payment for ...
