Dear Brethren, Though I sent this “Personal” from the Tomorrow’s World magazine before, I felt it would be helpful to review it once again. Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong had excellent points in this article worth reading several times. The article is on the subject of “Emotional Maturity”. We live in a world that’s filled with wrong emotions such as jealousy, uncontrolled anger, hatred, lust and ...
Dear Brethren, What is the Bible definition of SIN? Does God define sin, or is the definition just one person’s belief over another’s? After all, don’t some people believe that dancing or playing cards is sinful? Others would say those activities aren’t sinful at all. Early on, as God was preparing him for the ministry, Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong was faced with proving the Bible definition of SIN. ...
Dear Brethren, I’ll begin tonight’s letter with a few excerpts from the booklet What do you mean -- "THE UNPARDONABLE SIN?”, by Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong. In spiritual salvation, the blood of Christ -- the death of Christ -- paid the penalty we have incurred in our stead. And it SAVES US from this destruction (which is the second death) -- that is, PREVENTS US from having to pay it -- if and when ...
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, The godly character in us, I have stated, cannot be created by fiat. It must be developed. We must yield. We must desire it, seek it. But it comes from GOD. Thus if we keep a close daily contact with our Creator, through His Spirit and through our spirit -- for remember, His Holy Spirit "beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God" (Rom. 8:16) -- then He is ...
Dear Brethren, “I have seen this twentieth century develop into a state of awesome advancement and achievement industrially and technologically. Paradoxically, I have seen alarming escalation of appalling evils, crime and violence and the crucible of nuclear war develop to threaten the very extinction of the human race within the present living generation” (Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong - Mystery of ...
Greetings Brethren, “God's Church will NOT COMPROMISE a millionth part of 1% with GOD'S TRUTH as He reveals it to us who willingly accept it -- hunger and thirst for it! When a program of watering down starts, it grows with increasing momentum.” (Mr. Herbert W. Armstrong) There are some ministers who claim to teach EVERYTHING that Mr. Armstrong taught, while behind the scenes they subtly ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I’m sending the final part of my series on the subject of “priorities,” written in 2015. Please have a good night’s rest and a wonderful Sabbath everyone. Sincerely, Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold February 13, 2015 Dear Brethren, Now UNDERSTAND! The husband-and-wife relationship, and the family relationship, are God-plane relationships! … Here is another vital REASON ...
Dear Brethren, Tonight, I’m sending part three of my series of letters on the subject of “priorities.” Please have a wonderful Sabbath. Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold February 6, 2015 Dear Brethren, So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom (Psalm 90:12). When we look closely at this verse, we see that God expects us to be using our time wisely. The Believer’s Study ...
Dear Brethren, Last week I sent part one of a Brethren letter written in 2015 on the subject of “life’s priorities.” Tonight, I’m sending part two of that series. Please have a wonderful Sabbath, everyone! Sincerely, Your Brother in Christ, Gary Liebold January 30, 2015 Dear Brethren, Last week, I wrote on the subject of having “right priorities.” Have you ever felt like you’re on a treadmill ...
Dear Brethren, You may have heard the saying, “It seems like there are just not enough hours in a day.” Well, sometimes it may seem that way. However, as we know, God created a twenty-four-hour period, and every single human being on earth is subject to the same amount of time. Time may be spent wisely, or squandered and lost. The question is, how do we manage our time? Is it often wasted on ...
Dear Brethren, The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly (John 10:10). Jesus Christ came to bring us the abundant life, a life that bears the positive fruit of God’s Holy Spirit. Tonight, I’m sending excerpts from a Tomorrow’s World Personal, written By Mr. Armstrong in December 1971, on ...
Dear Brethren, I will start tonight’s letter with Christ’s words to His disciples about prayer. [6] But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. [7] And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for ...
