Monthly Letter - December 2010-January 2011

31 December 2010
 
Greetings Everyone,
 
As I write to you, the whole nation is under a severe chill! Numerous accidents, loss of lives, and increased heating bills will be a direct result of this chill. And of course, this month, December, brings the most attractive holiday of all traditional “Christianity”ó Christmas. People around the world are spending money they don’t have and running up bills they cannot pay. The world is experiencing serious financial difficulties but mankind simply cannot control his materialistic desires. Cloaked under the guise of worshipping Christ, we find ourselves deeper and deeper in debt.
 
Christ said we would hear of wars and rumors of wars in the Last Days. He said there would be earthquakes, famines, pestilence and disease prevalent throughout the world (Mat. 24, Luke 21, Mark 13). However, He said the problems extant throughout the world would focus primarily on “Jacob”. (The U.S., Britain, Canada, Australia and other English speaking nations). He calls it a time of “Jacob’s” trouble (Jer. 30:7). These troubles will continue to escalate until Christ, Himself, will have to intervene to save us from ourselves (Mat. 24: 21-22).
 
Unfortunately, the world is oblivious as to why we are experiencing so many troubles. Modern Christianity isn’t telling them because they do not know. Politicians and scientists can’t save us because they do not know the reasons either. They trust in themselves. Read Isaiah chapter one verses 1-7. We are a sinful nation. We have forgotten our God. We have rejected His Commandments. We have been told that Godís laws have been “done away with.” Religious leaders refuse to tell our people that “sin is the transgression of the law” (I John 3:4). We, as a nation, are breaking God’s Commandments!
 
Politicians are trying to do that which is “politically correct,” and as a result, they are passing laws to remove prayer from our schools, the ten commandments from all public buildings, and any mention of God in public settings. Yes, we have forgotten the concept that we are One Nation, Under God, and are drifting further and further from Him and any influence He may have in our lives. God does not take rejection lightly! He will punish us for our sins!
 
I know, I know, you have heard all this before. Perhaps some of you have. However, many of you reading this letter and receiving our Correspondence Courses and DVD’s have not! In fact, there are billions of people that have not heard the warning to STOP SINNING!
 
My friends, that is what this WORK is all about. We must warn as many people as possible of the impending crisis ahead! (Isaiah 58:1). God directed His Church to fulfill two commissions prior to His return: 1: Preach the gospel (the good news of the Kingdom of God) into all the world (Mat. 28: 18-20; Mark 16: 15-18) and 2: Feed my sheep (John 21: 15-17; I Peter 5: 1-2).
 
The Church of God New World ministries began this phase of God’s Work in 2007. We began with no money and only 212 people on our mailing list. Since that time we have been working diligently fulfilling the commissions God gave us (along with other Churches of God). We have grown to the point that we are finding it difficult to fulfill all our requests. We presently have 2,135 people on our mailing list, 1,502 receiving the Correspondence Course, 456 receiving the Traditional Christian Doctrine series, 474 receiving bi-monthly DVD’s, 352 people receiving the Story of the Bible, and four to five hundred people receiving CD’s/DVD’s requested from the website each month. Our staff is very small, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
 
I am enclosing a card with this letter. If you have access to the internet, and I assume you do as most of our orders come via the internet, please return the card with your email address. Our webservant is presently completing a program that will allow you to receive all the written material listed above via email. This will cut down on printing costs for us, the use of manpower stuffing the envelopes, and ensure you receive the requested material in a timely manner.
 
In the few years we have been doing God’s Work, we have produced MUCH FRUIT! However, there is much more to be done! If we are able to send out the bulk of our materials via the internet, we can increase our spending on advertising and no doubt double or triple our responses. A few months back Yahoo, the search engine we advertised on, merged with Bing, another search engine. In the transition we were advertising on both search engines. Our orders for the Correspondence Course increased by five (5) times our normal requests. So, we know the potential. We just need your help to make it happen. Please send us an e-mail so we can enter your email address into the system and send you the materials via e-mail. I will inform you when to expect the change.
 
All of you who have received materials from us know that we never charge for any of our materials. Some have asked how we can do this. The answer is simple, we follow the Godly principle outlined by Jesus Christ himself, “it is more blessed to give than to receive” (Acts 20:35). A few dedicated members of The Church of God New World Ministries, along with a few co-workers, through their tithes and offerings, provide the income necessary to do God’s Work. Unfortunately, the tithes and offerings have not increased as exponentially as the requests. For this reason we are requesting your help in utilizing the internet to fulfill the increased number of requests.
 
As I have always done, I conclude my letters with a sincere thank you to all those who provide support whether it be by the power of prayer and/or financially. Oh, I must tell you, this month we reached a milestone in the Work, OVER 100,000 ARTICLES HAVE BEEN READ ON THE WEBSITE SINCE WE BEGAN IN 2007. We are getting the WORK DONE!
 
Sincerely,
George Trent
