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 ...
Dear Brethren, Tomorrow, I plan on giving a sermon on the subject of “healing.” For tonight’s Brethren Letter, I felt that these paragraphs written by Mr. Armstrong in the booklet, The Plain Truth About Healing, would be a good review prior to my sermon. Please have a good night’s rest. Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold Faith Necessary for Obedience The true commandment-keeper is forced to ...
Dear Brethren, “And you shall eat before the LORD your God, in the place where He chooses to make His name abide, the tithe of your grain and your new wine and your oil, of the firstborn of your herds and your flocks, that you may learn to fear the LORD your God always” (Deuteronomy 14:23 - NKJV). Arrangements have been made with a hotel for this year's Feast site. I believe you’ll be pleased ...
Dear Brethren, A few years ago, I read an article written by Mr. Armstrong that got me thinking about the subject of HEALTH. At the same time, I remembered a person who told me about some of the various medications they were regularly taking. This person said, “I know I’m taking a lot of medications, but isn’t all of America doing the same thing?” Well, this person was right. Americans do take a ...
Dear Brethren, Last Sabbath, we heard a sermonette given by Mr. John Bawiec. He mentioned a letter I had written in 2008 on the subject of “Running The Race”. Since some of you have never read that letter, I thought I would send it once again for this week’s letter. As always, please have a wonderful Sabbath! Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold Recently, my wife and I were watching one of the ...
Dear Brethren, I was reading a very beautiful letter recently written by one of our Church members. This member has had severe health problems for several years. I’m very pleased to tell you that their health has improved substantially in the last few weeks. I could see their joy and happiness just reading the opening sentence of their letter. They wrote, “Isa 53:4; 1 Peter 2:24, What precious ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I decided to resend an article I wrote in 2008. It’s an article about the TRUTH of God. Every one of us must love God’s TRUTH with every “fiber” of who we are. There’s a future in that! Have a wonderful Sabbath! Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold NEVER SURRENDER THE TRUTH By GARY LIEBOLD “We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we ...
Dear Brethren, We’re now getting closer to the spring Holy Day season. In the next few weeks, I’ll be giving sermons related to the Passover, and Days of Unleavened Bread. Tonight, I was reading one of Mr. Armstrong’s “Personals” from the Tomorrow’s World magazine, October 1971, and thought it was an excellent article. I’ve copied most of that article for tonight’s “Brethren Letter.” Have a ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, will be the final part of my series on the subject of “FAITH”. In the book of Hebrews, we find the Biblical definition of faith -- the kind of faith true Christians MUST have! “Now faith is the substance [assurance] of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). That’s not a quote from the mind of a man, that’s a quote inspired by the GREAT God. “All ...
Dear Brethren, Many years ago, I talked with a man who told me a personal story about his experience with a “faith-healer.” A relative had been in her final stages of cancer. She was told by various physicians that she had only a few months to live. Realizing that the medical profession could do no more for her, she asked another family member if they would take her to see a “faith-healer,” where ...
Dear Brethren, When I was a boy, one of my classmates in elementary school asked me what church I belonged to. Since my family didn’t attend any organized church, that question puzzled me. I didn’t know the answer. When I returned home, I asked my mother that very perplexing question, “What Church do we belong to?” She simple said, “Oh, you’re a _________. That’s the FAITH you belong to.” Well, ...
