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 ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I’m resending a letter written several years ago. In this letter I address our having spiritual courage and success, especially when we face difficult times. Please have a wonderful Sabbath! Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold July 3, 2015 Dear Brethren, Today, I watched a short video posted by a friend on “Facebook”, showing some famous individuals who experienced ...
Dear Brethren, Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. (I Corinthians 1:10) In recent weeks the number of people contacting Church of God Scattered Faithful, has been rapidly increasing. It’s interesting to ...
Dear Brethren, I’ll begin tonight’s letter with a story used in a recent sermon. Several years ago I read this story for the first time and have always found it to be quite inspiring. Sometimes when things seem impossible, the outcome can be quite different. This short story was written in A Daily Dose of the American Dream, by Alan C. Elliott. The story of Helen Keller is well known. She was ...
Dear Brethren, A few years ago, I received an e-mail from one of our Church members. It was quite stirring and thought-provoking. The inspiring words show some excellent insight. I will share one of the paragraphs with you (by permission) tonight. I have been going through the gospels again, I have always admired the disciples and apostles for the work they did in face of certain death. How they ...
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 ...
