Dear Brethren, The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly (John 10:10). Jesus Christ came to bring us the abundant life, a life that bears the positive fruit of God’s Holy Spirit. Tonight, I’m sending excerpts from a Tomorrow’s World Personal, written By Mr. Armstrong in December 1971, on ...
Dear Brethren, I will start tonight’s letter with Christ’s words to His disciples about prayer. [6] But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. [7] And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for ...
Dear Brethren, Sometimes the question arises about the purple Worldwide Church of God hymnal, if we use that hymnal, and if we still approve of singing all the hymns in it. The purple hymnal released in 1974 is the same hymnal we use today. Mr. Armstrong approved every hymn that was published. I thought I would share part of a letter I wrote in 2018 discussing this subject. Have a wonderful ...
Dear Brethren, Likely, we’ve all known people from the past we thought were "spiritual POWERHOUSES." These people seemed unwavering in their beliefs. They defended the TRUTH of God and seemed willing to fight (spiritually) unto the death. Some were elders, others were deacons or even lay-members. Yet today, some of these same individuals no longer believe what they once steadfastly upheld. While ...
Dear Brethren, …we cannot now ease off and rest on our laurels. We cannot let down. We must gather momentum and dedicated energy in correcting ourselves, overcoming, devoting ourselves to increasingly fervent PRAYERS -- praying that God will show us our weaknesses and sins, give us a deep spirit of repentance, continually praying… praying for one another, praying prevailingly for deliverance from ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I’m sending excerpts from Mr. Armstrong’s December 19, 1980, Brethren letter . This letter leads right into what I have planned for tomorrow’s sermon. In this letter, Mr. Armstrong gives an excellent outline of the growth of the Work throughout the Philadelphia era. Please have a wonderful Sabbath! Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold Dear Brethren and Co ...
Dear Brethren, When I was seventeen, I started my first job working in a restaurant. That day (Sunday), the manager placed me at the beverage station serving clientele everything from steaming hot coffee to ice cold water. I believe that was the only time I was given that specific duty. The manager had other, more challenging jobs in mind when he hired me. However, he wanted me to start small and ...
Dear Brethren, Welcome home! Everyone should be home by now from the 2019 Feast of Tabernacles. For those who could not attend this year, please know that you were missed! We look forward to talking with you again on God’s Sabbath! I’ll end tonight’s letter with a scripture very important to all of us as a spiritual FAMILY! “But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as ...
Dear Brethren, I was reading Mr. Armstrong’s letter of 1981 regarding the Feast of Tabernacles, and wanted to share it with you. Just think, God’s Master Plan will eventually change the outlook of the entire earth. Instead of today’s unhappiness and misery, the World Tomorrow will be a time when people will learn how to live a new way of life that produces real and lasting happiness. Here is an ...
Dear Brethren, In three days we will be observing God’s Feast of Trumpets. 23 ”Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 24 "Speak to the children of Israel, saying: 'In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, you shall have a Sabbath-rest, a memorial of blowing of trumpets, a holy convocation” (Leviticus 23:23-24 NKJV). This specific annual High Sabbath Day pictures an event that will ...
Dear Brethren, In less than two weeks we will be observing God’s Feast of Trumpets. Following The Feast of Trumpets is the Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles and Last Great Day. Each of the Holy Days show a progression of vital steps in God’s MASTER PLAN of salvation. To many people in the world, the Holy Days may seem a bit strange. Over twenty-five years ago we had an employee working for ...
Greetings Brethren, Tonight, I had the opportunity to talk with a Church member whom I met several years ago. It was good to find that he still has a love for the TRUTH and recognizes Mr. Armstrong’s role as an apostle. Considering our conversation, I decided to re-send a letter (updated), which I wrote in 2010. Please have a good night’s rest everyone. Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold August ...
Greetings Brethren, I understand there are over 500 corporate Churches of God in existence today. Most of the COG groups have formed since the death of Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong in 1986. Many (if not most), of these groups openly reject Mr. Armstrong’s office as an apostle and the role he had as a TYPE of “Elijah” (Malachi 4:5; Matthew 17:11). Other groups take the “smorgasbord” approach to ...
