Monthly Letter - June 2008

30 June 08
 
Greetings Everyone,
 
It is hard to believe, but in just three and one half months, we will be observing The Feast of Tabernacles. You will notice that there is quite a bit of feast information in this issue of the Church Newsletter. Our next Newsletter will probably not get mailed until after the feast, which comes in October this year. Therefore, we needed to provide you with motel information in this issue. I hope you will begin making plans to attend now.
 
As you know, the feast pictures the millennial reign of Christ on the earth. It is one of God’s seven annual festivals and is a commanded assembly. (Lev. 23:1-2; 34-44). These Holy Days are Sabbaths. They are equal in importance to the weekly Sabbath. For proof read Exodus 31:13. “Speak thou also unto the children of Israel saying, Verily my Sabbaths (plural) ye shall keep…” If you want to obey God, you will attend The Feast of Tabernacles.
 
Some have wanted to know why some of our envelopes have HDO on them and others do not. The HDO stands for Holy Day Offering. The Church of God New World Ministries is financed by the tithes and offerings of members and co-workers. We do not take up offerings in our weekly Sabbath services, nor do we charge for any of our materials. All of our materials are FREE, paid for by members and co-workers. Turn in your Bible and read Deuteronomy 16:16-17. “Three times (seasons, which encompass all seven of God’s Holy Days) in a year shall all thy males appear before the Lord thy God in the place which he shall choose in the feast of unleavened bread, and the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before the Lord empty: Every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord thy God which he hath given thee.” Pursuant to the scriptures, we do provide envelopes to those who would like to contribute an offering on these seven Holy Days.
 
For the past twenty-nine months, I have been writing The Church’s Mini-Correspondence Course, one Lesson each month. Each Course takes a considerable amount of research and several hours to write. The various Lessons outline the basic foundational beliefs of The Church of God New World Ministries. Presently, I plan to write at least three more Lessons. I often wonder if the Lessons are being read and if they are benefiting those receiving them in their Christian growth and development. Paul wrote to the Church in Ephesus that they (members of God’s Church) were …”fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God: And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;” (Eph. 2:19-20).
 
Are you building your spiritual house on the teachings of Christ and the apostles? If you are studying the Correspondence Course you will be because these Lessons are exactly the same teachings taught by Christ and by His apostles. I do hope you are utilizing this valuable tool.
 
Next month you will receive a sermon I delivered entitled “Are You Waxing Cold?” I hope it will stimulate you to study God’s Word more diligently and to pray more fervently. I still remember studying the old Ambassador College Correspondence Course and looking up each and every scripture, underlining many of them in my Bible, and committing many of them to memory. I hope you are not growing weary with well doing and waxing cold. Be sure and listen intently to the sermon.
 
God’s ministers are committed to fulfilling the twofold commission to His Church: 1) preach the gospel, and 2) feed my sheep. With this in mind, we will be offering three CD messages this month.
 
Mr. Joe Shuster explains the meaning of the “Sin Offerings” administered by the ancient Israelites. (Lev. 23: 18-19). This message was delivered in the Spring Holy Day season around Passover and explains the tremendous “spiritual” significance of the sin offerings. The second offering is by Mr. John Shelton. He delivered the message on Pentecost this year and demonstrates how the Holy Spirit enables us to go from “Weakness Unto Power.” The third CD is by Mr. David Smith. Mr. Smith delivers a powerful message to America and outlines some of the reasons the Bible predicts America’s demise. He “cries aloud” for “America to Wake Up.” To order these CD’s simply check the appropriate box on the enclosed card.
 
Each month we are continuing to receive more requests for the Correspondence Course and our DVD/CD sermon messages. We are now planning to add another dimension to God’s Work in the near future. We are planning to provide short video clips on the website outlining many Biblical issues, i.e., “What Happens To You When You Die?,” and will be offering an article or DVD to explain the answer. Please pray for its success.
 
On behalf of The Church, I would like to thank all of you for your contributions to The Work. We may be a “little flock,” but with God’s Spirit guiding us we will go forward with His Work. Your prayers are needed and appreciated.
 
If we can be of service to any of you, please let us know. We are here to serve you.
 
Sincerely,
George Trent
