Monthly Letter - June 2009

31 October 2009
 
Greetings Everyone,
 
Many of you have just returned from the Feast of Tabernacles. Some of you receiving this letter may never have heard of the Feast of Tabernacles and do not have any idea what I am talking about. The Feast of Tabernacles is one of Godís seven annual Holy Days listed in Leviticus the 23rd chapter. It represents the coming REST, or millennial reign of Christ on this earth. If you would like to know more about the Feast and the other Holy Days God ordained, you may go to our website, www.cognwm.org, and look up the article, God’s Master Plan of Salvation. In it you will find an explanation of each of these Holy days and how they fit into Godís Plan of Salvation for mankind. Furthermore, I briefly covered this subject in my sermon on the Last Great Day. Those on our monthly DVD mailing list will automatically receive this message. If you are not yet enrolled, you may do so by clicking the button at the bottom of this page.
 
It will be several months before we begin observing the Holy Days again. I encourage all of you to learn as much about Godís Holy Days as possible. If you read Leviticus 23 you will learn that these Holy Days are commanded assemblies (Sabbaths) by God. They are just as important to God as the weekly Sabbath. Read Exodus 31:13. Did you notice that God said, “...Verily my Sabbaths ye shall keep:” Sabbaths is plural, meaning more than one. God says these Holy Days are a sign between Him and His people. Are you one of Christís people? You are certainly not if you do not observe His Holy Days. That is just how serious obedience to these Holy Days is!
 
At this year’s Feast Mr. Joe Shuster delivered a Bible Study on the book of Haggai. In his study Mr. Shuster elaborated on how the construction, or rebuilding of the temple destroyed by the Babylonians, relates directly to God’s Church today. If you would like a copy of this eye-opening Study simply click the button at the bottom of this page and we will send it out to you right away.
 
On another note, most of you have noticed an increasing amount of violence and evil in the world in which you are living. I know I certainly have. Some of the crimes committed today were unheard of during my early years of the 50’s and 60’s. Paul was inspired to write to Timothy about an increase in violence and a change in the very temperament of man in the “last days.” (2 Timothy 3:1-13). He said because of this change perilous times shall come. My friends, perilous times are here now, today! And, pursuant to Biblical prophecy, things are predicted to get much worse and eventually will develop into the time of tribulation spoken of by Christ and many of the prophets. Yes, terrible times are predicted for the peoples of this world. There is a reason for this increase in evil and violence. The answer is found in Revelation the twelfth chapter. Read the following verses: 3,4, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13-17.
 
Satan the Devil attempted a coup of God’s throne. One third of the angels (stars) followed him in this rebellion against God. Lucifer became known as Satan the Devil and the angels became demons. They are desperately wicked. They are a major source of this world’s evils.
 
Paul admonished the Church at Ephesus to “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places, Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” (Ephesians 6: 11-13).
 
Yes, Satan knows that time is running out for his rulership on this earth (2 Cor. 4:4). And in an attempt to thwart God’s Master Plan of Salvation for mankind he is wreaking havoc throughout this earth. He will bring about great tribulation on this earth. It is his last ditch effort to destroy mankind. But, he will fail.
 
I recently delivered a sermon message, titled “This Present Evil World.” In this message I will show you how to deal with these wicked spirits and to resist the pulls of the Devil. Many of you may be dealing with Satan and his demons right now in your personal lives and not even know what the problem is. You cannot defeat Satan alone. You must have help from one who is greater than he that is in the world. (I John 4: 1-6). For a copy of this message simply click the button at the bottom of this page.
 
My friends, I am not a preacher of gloom and doom. I, and the other ministers of The Church of God New World Ministries, are simply trying to fulfill the commission God gave to His Church. To warn this world of the impending disaster ahead. The signs extant in this present evil world certainly seem to be pointing in the direction prophesied by Christ and labeled as the “last days.” We do not set dates. We are however, admonished to WATCH! So, I encourage you to watch world events, watch for Jerusalem to be encompassed with armies, watch for the “man of sin” to set up his office in the temple of God in Jerusalem, watch for increased wickedness and evil, and watch for world leaders to proclaim peace in the world. When these things come about, know that the end is near.
 
I would like to thank all of you who have contributed to the financing of this Work. Through your generous tithes and offerings we are able to continue to send out DVD’s, CD’s, Correspondence Courses, and other materials to enhance your spiritual growth and development. We are able to maintain our website, purchase necessary equipment and supplies and defray expenses. Thank you all very much.
