Dear Brethren, When I was a teenager, a young man in our neighborhood ran for political office. It seems he ran for some type of county position. He had big plans for a lifelong political career, studying “political science” in college. However, the year he ran, it did not turn out well. He lost the election and found himself deeply in debt. He became disillusioned with the whole process of ...
Dear Brethren, Several years ago, I read a short letter on the internet written by a person named “Susan.” Her brief letter spurred a spiritual comparison in my mind of our being “soldiers” of Jesus Christ ( II Timothy 2:3-4 ). The spiritual battles we face can seem quite overwhelming. Nevertheless, the reality is , God is there to help even when it seems like our “darkest of moments.” Here is ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I am sending part of a “ Brethren, Co-Worker ” letter written by Mr. Armstrong on October 23, 1978. Mr. Armstrong reminded us about keeping our eyes fastened on Christ as we approach the “HOME STRETCH”, spiritually. Christ is preparing His Church, NOW! “ that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such ...
Dear Brethren, I have some very EXCITING news to share with you. In just a few weeks, we will launch our new on-line magazine, intended to serve the FAITHFUL , LOYAL , and scattered brethren of God’s Church around the world. “ …He [Christ] is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him [with Christ, at His re- ...
Dear Brethren, This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. -Ralph Waldo Emerson That quote sure rings true, doesn’t it? My mother often said, “The older we get the faster time goes.” I sure can understand what she meant! As we realize, the measuring of time is the same for everyone. C.S. Lewis correctly stated, “The future is something which everyone reaches ...
Dear Brethren, Do you really grasp it? The purpose of your being alive is that finally you be born into the Kingdom of God, which is the divine FAMILY of God... In the words of I Peter 1:8, you will “rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of GLORY”! (“Why Were You Born?” - Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong) The booklet “Why Were You Born” was one of our first Church of God booklets my wife and I read back ...
Dear Brethren, Several decades ago my wife and I sat in a small kiosk set-up inside of a shopping mall. The kiosk displayed Worldwide Church of God literature, including Church booklets and the Plain Truth magazine. As I remember it, this booth was one of many displayed from various organizations during a two-week period of time. It seems that the Worldwide Church of God was the only one of its ...
Dear Brethren, We hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day yesterday. For all of us, Thanksgiving should be a day of giving THANKS, and not just be “turkey day” and football. Hopefully, we took the time in our prayers to deeply thank God for the many blessings He so mercifully and lovingly pours out upon us. In Psalm 100:4 we read “Enter His gates with thanksgiving, and His courts with ...
Dear Brethren, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7). In a few days our nation will be observing a national Day of Thanksgiving. Sadly, far too many Americans think of ...
Dear Brethren, But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). All begotten Christians probably have asked themselves... “Do I have the kind of living faith that pleases God?" God reveals that it is impossible to please Him without it. Surely, each of us wants to have REAL ...
Dear Brethren, I will begin tonight’s letter with a quote that has been attributed to the former U.S. State Department Spokesman, Robert McCloskey: I know that you believe you understand what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant. The first time I heard that phrase, I was quite perplexed with its meaning. Even as I read it tonight, I find the ...
Dear Brethren, A strong and firm family structure is a basic building block of any happy and stable society. (Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong, May 14, 1974) I once read an article on the internet about today’s decline of the American family, by J. Randall Hall. Here’s a paragraph taken from that article… In America today, 53 percent of all children born to women under the age of 30 are being born ...
Dear Brethren, A few of years ago I had a dream, where I was thinking about God’s Truth. In my dream, I was being ridiculed and mocked for my Biblical beliefs. After most of the crowd had walked past me, one last person sat down next to me and said, “I don’t agree with these people mocking you like this. But tell me, why do you still continue to believe what you believe?” My answer was, “Because ...
