Dear Brethren, In just a few days we will be observing the Day of Atonement (Leviticus 23:26-32). This day pictures the time when Satan will be removed from his current rule over this earth (Revelation 20:1-3). He will no longer be able to influence mankind, being “bound” for 1000 years! The Day of Atonement also points to a time when man will finally be at one with God (AT-ONE-MENT). For the ...
Dear Brethren, At sunset this evening, we will begin 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 ...
Dear Brethren, “Now, we have inscribed a new memory alongside those others. It’s a memory of tragedy and shock, of loss and mourning. But not only of loss and mourning. It’s also a memory of bravery and self-sacrifice, and the love that lays down its life for a friend―even a friend whose name it never knew.” — George W. Bush Nineteen years ago, on September 11, 2001 despicable acts of terrorism ...
Dear Brethren, Last week, I sent the first part of Mr. Armstrong’s article written about the Kingdom of God. Here is the final part of that article as printed in the Plain Truth magazine, April, 1962. Please have a wonderful Sabbath! Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold The Plain Truth April, 1962 Just What Do You Mean -- KINGDOM OF GOD? Was it set up by Jesus Christ in the first century A.D? Why ...
Dear Brethren, We will begin observing the Fall Holy Days in just a few weeks. With that in mind, I thought it would be a good review to read Mr. Armstrong’s Plain Truth article from March 1962, entitled, “Just What Do You Mean -- Kingdom of God?” Mr. Armstrong reviews the history of MAN’S ruling kingdoms as well as prophecy yet to be fulfilled. This is PART I of the article. I will continue with ...
Dear Brethren, From time to time I receive questions about the Laodicean era of the Church of God. Various Church of God groups teach that we are still (currently), in the Philadelphian era of the Church, and claim that the Laodicean era does not start until the Great Tribulation begins. In-part, they base their teaching on what they believe Mr. Armstrong said. I originally addressed this subject ...
Dear Brethren, Following the death of Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong in 1986, doctrinal changes began to take place in the Worldwide Church of God. At first, many of God’s people were not aware of the changes. However, in time, the changes became more evident. Early in 1991, it was revealed in the Worldwide News that the Church had “new understanding” on what it means to be “BORN AGAIN.” This new ...
Dear Brethren, “Never believe anything in politics until it has been officially denied.” (Otto Von Bismark) That’s a very interesting quote! Sadly, this phrase has much truth in it! With the U.S. presidential elections less than ninety days away, the airwaves are filled with words like “mental acuity”, “racist,” “liar,” “xenophobe,” and “latest polls” to name a few. That is politics, isn’t it? ...
Dear Brethren, Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. (I John 3:1-2) Clearly, these two ...
Dear Brethren, Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong warned us of a coming WORLD ECONOMIC CRISIS. Please take that warning seriously, brethren! He wrote the following in 1981: A few months ago I wrote you a warning that we must prepare to tighten our belts, and reduce our living standards! This whole nation is going to have to do that! The nation’s economy is in DEEP TROUBLE. (Brethren, Co-worker Letter - ...
Dear Brethren, Several years ago, I heard a sermonette I remember very well. The person speaking told the congregation that he had once piloted a small Piper type aircraft. He went on to say that if a pilot expects to reach his destination, he must not allow his plane to veer off-course by even one degree. A change of just ONE tiny degree could cause a plane to end up several miles off the “mark ...
Dear Brethren, From time to time I like to send a letter written by God’s end-time apostle, Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. Tonight, in conjunction with tomorrow’s sermon, I am sending a “Personal from the Editor” article (selected text), Mr. Armstrong wrote in 1970. Please have a good night’s rest. Sincerely, Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold The Good News of Tomorrow's World Personal from the ...
Dear Brethren, In 2014, I wrote a “Brethren Letter” about Praying for Others. I thought it would be good to re-send this letter once again, as we continue our prayers for our brethren, and for others as well. Sincerely, Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold February 21, 2014 Dear Brethren, God's divine nature is the nature of love -- of giving, serving, helping -- of outgoing concern. (The Good ...
