Dear Brethren, We will be observing the Feast of Pentecost in two days as commanded by the Great God. “These are the feasts of the LORD, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times” (Leviticus 23:4). Pentecost pictures the beginning “FIRST-FRUITS” of God’s salvation. (Leviticus 23:15-17; Acts 2:1; James 1:18) God is not working with most people now. In fact, it is not even ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I’m resending a letter written in 2011. We will be observing the Feast of Pentecost in a little over a week. God has a marvelous plan for us, and for all of mankind. Just think of it, we can actually be a part of God’s FIRSTFRUIT spiritual harvest. Through His Holy Spirit we’re able to grow now, in God’s character. Mr. Armstrong wrote the following about “righteous ...
Dear Brethren, The true Christian life, then, possesses an overflowing fullness of the things that are the fruits of the Spirit of God -- an overflowing fullness of LOVE (it's God's love; it's a genuine, spiritual love), a fullness of JOY, and of PEACE, and of FAITH, of MEEKNESS, of TEMPERANCE. Does YOUR life possess those things? Have those things come into your life to fill you? (Herbert W. ...
Dear Brethren, My mom is a never-ending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being. I may sometimes forget the words, but I always remember the tune. – AUTHOR UNKNOWN Since this coming Sunday is Mother’s Day, I was thinking of my mother and reflecting upon her life. It has been many years since I have seen her. She died of colon cancer in 1977. I can remember how through the years she took ...
Dear Brethren, “Indian villagers fearful as MAN-EATING tiger remains on the prowl.” Those words are not taken from the latest hit at the “box-office.” They are not found in any Philip Caputo novel either. That was an actual headline in the news several years ago. Here is some of the story, as published by the Associated Press… She lies in wait while her victims are collecting firewood, or taking ...
Dear Brethren, Have you ever watched a baseball game? I am sure most of you have. One year when I was in elementary school, I asked my dad to take me to watch a Little League game where one of my buddies played. We went to that game. While I don’t remember if my friend’s team won, I do remember realizing one of the responsibilities of a pitcher was to throw a ball in such a skillful way that a ...
Dear Brethren, Thirty-five to forty years ago our local pastor in the Worldwide Church of God recommended that each person in the congregation set the goal of reading the entire Bible page by page, from cover to cover, at least once in their lifetime. My first thought was, “Oh! That will take years! I’ll be old by the time I finish.” But, the more I thought about his suggestion, the more I ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I’m sending out a “Co-Worker Letter” written in 1977. For members of the Church of God, it will be a good reminder of Mr. Armstrong’s life and the Work of God. Please have a wonderful Sabbath! Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold Co-Worker NEWS LETTER OF THE WORLDWIDE CHURCH OF GOD VOL. 2. NO. 5-6 JUNE – JULY 1977 A Message to Mankind In the last issue of the Co-Worker ...
Dear Brethren, In only a few days, we will be observing God’s Passover (Leviticus 23:5). Passover is the most solemn occasion of the year, observed in commemoration of the DEATH of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. …For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us” (I Corinthians 5:7). For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord's death till He comes (I ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I’m sending an article that I wrote several years ago, entitled, “Building Suitable Habits.” We’ll be observing the Passover and Days of Unleavened Bread very soon. Hopefully, we’re examining ourselves and rooting-out ANY habit that God would not be pleased with. Please have a wonderful Sabbath! Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold BUILDING SUITABLE HABITS Have you ever ...
Dear Brethren, Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread are quickly approaching. We’ll be observing the Passover in just a little over two weeks. Tonight, I’m sending out a Tomorrow’s World Personal written by Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong in 1972. I felt this article was a good review for all of us as we prepare spiritually for Passover and Unleavened Bread. Please have a good Sabbath! Your Brother ...
Dear Brethren, What words do you think are the most difficult words for a person to say? I doubt you would answer, “How have you been?” or “What’s new?” Though there could be a variety of answers, I fully believe that the MOST difficult words for a human being to say are these three: “I am wrong.” I remember a man jokingly saying to me many years ago, “It’s not hard for ME to admit when I’m wrong ...
Dear Brethren, Over eighteen years ago, the United States of America experienced a heinous, cowardly and despicable act of terrorism carried out by radical Islamic terrorists. Probably most of us can remember exactly where we were when those acts of terror began to unfold on September 11, 2001. I was in a business customer’s home watching the attack take place on our client’s television set. ...
