Dear Brethren, If I asked you the question (in connection with the Church)... “Have you read M-O-A?”, would you know what I was asking? I would hope every adult in the Church of God, Scattered Faithful, would know exactly what I was referring to. “M-O-A” (an abbreviation commonly used in the Church), refers to the book, Mystery of the Ages, written by Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. Here is how Mr. ...
Dear Brethren, I’ll begin tonight’s letter with a paragraph quoted from a book entitled, Illustrations Unlimited. After I first read the paragraph, I quickly realized I could identify with similar experiences in my own life. The subject matter of this quote is an example of the word “patience.” To me, the author has an excellent way of getting his point across. Maybe I would personally entitle it ...
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, In four 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 we’ll observe 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. Nearly thirty years ago we had an employee ...
Dear Brethren, This nation has DISOBEYED GOD! God blessed us after 1800- 1803. He caused us to WIN the first two world wars. BUT NOW WE HAVE WON OUR LAST WAR! ... OUR LEADERS HAVE FORGOTTEN GOD! And now God is de-serting our nations! (Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong) By now, most of you know that the United States recently withdrew its Amer-ican troops from the nation of Afghanistan. Within a few days, ...
Dear Brethren, For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. (Matthew 24:21) Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man." (Luke 21:36) Tonight, I’m sending the second part of Mr. Armstrong’s Brethren, ...
Dear Brethren, The united Europe must and will come. YOU and I are involved -- DEEPLY! God's Church must first be made ready for Christ's coming. I call on you in Jesus' name to pray as never before that God's Church will heed and draw closer to him. Have we not been becoming lukewarm? Read the last part of Revelation 3. If we are lukewarm we shall be spewed out of Christ's mouth. (Brethren, Co- ...
Dear Brethren, “Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” -Albert Einstein Two weeks ago, I gave part one of my sermon entitled, “Understanding Begets Wisdom.” Tomorrow, I plan on giving part two of that sermon. Many years ago, a local elder in the Worldwide Church of God, gave a sermonette on the same basic subject as my sermon. I remember him talking about the biblical scholar, James ...
Dear Brethren, Recently, a Church member shared some news sources with me that he likes to listen to, and other ones he likes to read from. He definitely has a good understanding of world events in light of Bible prophecy. This person is very selective on what he watches and listens to (rightfully so), knowing the sources that have a good track record in presenting facts, and which sources cannot ...
Dear Brethren, But as it is written: "Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him." But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God (I Corinthians 2:9-10). Why do you understand God’s TRUTH when billions of others don’t? The answer to that ...
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 Last Sunday, Americans celebrated the birth of our ...
Dear Brethren, As I’ve written in previous letters, when it comes to prayer, it’s not only important for each of us to be praying to God, it is imperative that our hearts be fully immersed in those prayers. “…The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16). The original Greek word for effectual and fervent (energēs), means to be mighty in. Biblically, we are shown that ...
